Laurie Schlossnagle, KPA CTP, CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA, has been clicker training since 2003 when she started training her beagle, Daisy, for therapy dog work and for Rally Obedience. Laurie's passion is helping dog owners see and understand the wonders and benefits of clicker training. She offers both private sessions and group classes, all with the common goal of helping people and their dogs communicate better.

Laurie is the owner of Side By Side Dog Training, LLC, in Layton, Utah. She is also a founder and director of the therapy dog/crisis response group, Paws with Compassion.

After being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years, Laurie started working again in 2003 as a dog trainer and instructor, specializing (at that time) in Rally Obedience. Since then, Laurie has expanded into all facets of dog training, including puppies, house manners, life skills, therapy dog, crisis response dogs, service dogs, scent work, agility foundations, tricks, and problem behaviors.

Laurie is a World Cynosport Rally Judge and a C-WAGS Rally, Obedience, Games, and Scent Detective Judge.
