Dog & Puppy Training in Auckland with Laura Purkis from Constructive Canines

Central Bark believes training is as essential to your dog’s well being as having a loving home. It strengthens your bond and encourages you to get to know each other better.

Our trainer Laura also focuses on building a relationship with your dog. She believes it should be about working together to achieve things rather than demanding your dog to do what you say.
Laura prides herself on continuing to learn what she can and developing new techniques to help both dogs and their guardians.

Her two dogs, Keira & Kai, are her inspirations. Seeing the different ways they learn and what motivates each of them inspires her to teach people to understand their dog better.
Laura is Director of The Dog Safe Workplace Ltd and Founder of Kids Safe With Dogs Charitable Trust. Laura is also a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers New Zealand
