Laurie Corak is a professional dog trainer with over five years experience training and working with dogs. A dog lover since childhood, Laurie grew up surrounded by dogs on her family’s farm. She and her Labrador, Moose, were a therapy team for several years and participated in a children’s reading program. Laurie began assisting and teaching puppy and beginner classes locally and quickly became focused on learning about dog behavior in 2012, when her second dog, Pickles the pit bull entered her life.
Wanting to further expand her knowledge and skills, Laurie joined the Coventry staff in 2015 and in 2016 began training puppies and dogs through Coventry’s puppy prep school and day training programs. Laurie became an classroom instructor with Coventry and obtained her certification as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer in 2017. Laurie currently teaches classes, as well as trains and coordinates the Coventry Day Training program. She has successfully helped many humans understand their dogs needs and her work has made dogs valued family members.
Although she doesn’t have a favorite breed, Laurie has been known to turn to mush when she sees short haired dogs with block heads. Laurie graduated with honors from Towson University with Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Marketing, and was a Marketing Coordinator for four years.
