Laura Moretz

Purina Pro Plan Performance Team Trainer:  11 years

Number of dogs:   8

In my spare time I like to:  Crochet, read, learn new skills

Why did I start training dogs:  As a child I would make the dogs we owned jump over homemade jumps for their dinner.

Dean Werts

Purina Pro Plan Performance Team Trainer:  2 years

Number of dogs:  13 

In my spare time I like to:  Compete in Frisbee and Dock Diving and work at a Dog Training Facility my wife and I have opened up.

Why I started training dogs: When you get older and still want to compete in something that you love to do, this is it! Plus I met my wife doing agility and met some really nice people and it all started from there. 

Fun Facts:  I'm very lucky to be married to someone who shares the same passion for training dogs. We have some very fun and energetic dogs that are really amazing to watch and I love sharing what they can do with Purina. 

Training Tip:  Keeping your training sessions short, fun, and positive will get you further. The dogs will pay attention and learn a lot quicker.

Favorite Pro Plan product:  Savor
