Dog Trainer

Lauren has been with A Closer Bond since July of 2019.

She began her career in the industry by pet sitting for family and neighbors when she was around 8 years old and trying to convince my parents to get me a dog of my own.

Lauren holds a bachelor of the arts in Art History from Wagner College and is certified in Canine/Feline CPR and is a Certified Professional Animal Care Provider (CPACP) through The Professional Animal Care Certification Council (PACCC).

Lauren has a 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix named Mardi, and a shepherd/boxer mix named Queso. When they are not at The Bond they enjoy exploring forest preserves and going on hikes together.
