About Lara

I am 34 years old science based force free dog trainer and moved to Netherlands from Turkey at the end of the May 2021. I had been my own business about dog training, boarding and daycare service for twelve years. I met wonderful families and dogs and had beautiful memories. Now we are living here and I want to continue to help people with their pets. I can help people with pets around Almere and Lelystad.


When I was in Turkey, I fostered lots of dogs and a couple cats in years and I rescued and rehabilitated them and found their forever homes with a great pleasure.

I have a "nature and animal lover, a quiet, note-taking, careful, empathetic" personality. I am learning the language and having training classes with my dogs in "search and rescue" and "dog assisted interventions" ​​training fields. They are my passion. I have 3 dogs and a cat ( a rescue dog and a rescue cat, plus two border collies). I had my first dog at age 14 and grow up with her till my 30. She was a wonderful Golden Retriever mix. called Onyx. She was like a sister to me then she became my best friend then she became my furry child and finally she became my master. It is impossible to write a description that describes me without mentioning her.

I am also looking a pet sitter for my dogs for our future travel plans and I know that it is really so hard to trust someone about our beloved furry kids. So I want to believe in "doing good and finding back good" theory and as I have done for years, now I aspire to take care of your children in the best way possible.

I am offering dog walking, pet sitting at your house and house visits for your pets.
I can take your dogs for a walk from 30 minutes or more. I don't use choke chain, prong, pinch, slip etc collars on dogs. If you are using one of these on your dog I am not the right person for you. 

I can walk multiple dogs at the same time for sure but I feel the responsibility too much so I prefer to walk together only with small dogs and in this case I can give you a discount for extra dog. But if you have medium or large dogs I need to walk them one by one. Because there are people outside that walk their reactive dogs unleashed, and also there are cats who likes to attacked dogs and sometimes there are really dangerous foods on the ground etc because of these kind of things I want to be able to protect your doggy with my all strenght and attention. 

 I can also do home visits for 30 minutes or more. I can stay at your home for pet sitting but I need to leave at least two times in a day for walking with my own dogs or my clients dogs (in the morning and in the afternoon). For this reason, I can babysit dogs (house sitting) who can stay alone for a few hours at home.  

If I have to pay a fee for parking in your neighborhood, I request this as an extra. 

If your furry friend needs more or less we can always arrange it together. I will happily send you photos and videos of your furry baby and answer your questions all the time.

I've been there a lot and I've done this job as a professional for years from puppies to senior dogs, from social dogs to reactive dogs so I know that all animals are unique and different. We just need to respect their personalities and needs.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Lara did an outstanding job with our 3 cats and also took care of our plants. It is difficult to leave our pets alone but she is so professional and trustworthy that I would not hesitate to ask for her help again. The cats are happier to stay at home in good hands than being taken to a cat hotel.

Thank you so much, Lara!

I have business administration and veterinary technician diplomas and positive dog trainer certificates. I run a dog daycare and boarding service for 7 years in Turkey by myself. I am a certified professional dog trainer for 10 years and have a strong understanding of using positive reinforcement and science based behavior modification techniques to reduce unwanted pet behaviors whilst increasing wanted ones to train dogs. I am highly knowledgeable about how to train dogs for potty training, dog walking and performing tricks upon command and organize socialization day-care programs and training for unsocial dogs. I do not provide training services on this site, but I think it is important for you to know that the person you will entrust your pets and maybe even your home will at least never harm your dog physically and psychologically and is a trained person who can take responsibility correctly.
