LAURA JULIANO, CCDT
Laura has had a love for animals since she was a child. She grew up with Buttons, a poodle mix who was not fond of children and she knew that when she “grew up” she wanted to have a dog who she could safely interact with.
Fast forward to “grown up life”. Laura received her BA in Communications from Monmouth University in New Jersey and fell into the corporate world so many of us have succumbed to. Day after day sitting behind a desk just longing to be working with dogs. Knowing she was not fulfilling her passion, Laura took a leap of faith, quit her corporate job, graduated from the CATCH Canine Trainers Academy and became a full time dog trainer.
Laura discovered her passion while volunteering at her local shelter. She fostered (and quickly adopted) a beautiful white Pit Bull Mix named Missy who lead her to what she was always destined to do. Teach dog guardians how to positively train their dogs.
Laura has since adopted 2 additional Pit Bulls and in 2015 she founded Sugar Skull Pittie Rescue based in Monmouth County, NJ.
Laura has mentored under Drayton Michaels, CTC of Urban Dawgs in Red Bank, NJ and is currently enrolled as a student at The Academy for Dog Trainers.
Current studies also include Nutrition counseling.
Laura is supported by her loving husband, Chris and her son TJ. Her pets include a 15 year old Shih Tzu named Dexter, and her 3 Pit Bulls- Missy, Jewels and Rocco ages 6, 5 and 4 respectively.
