My partner Martha and I began our search for a pet resort in 2019. We wanted to find a way to combine our love for animals, Martha’s passion for dog training, and my interest in business. We both felt strongly that we wanted to wake up each day, to what we love which is working with animals.
Harry grew up in Southern New Hampshire and has always had a love for animals. Growing up he had a black lab named Atlas who struggled with arthritis from a young age. After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Merrimack College he went on to get a masters degree in finance at Villanova University. Today Harry and Martha have 3 dogs Theodore (Teddy), a miniature long-haired dachshund, Elvis, and Phil, their 2 crazy labrador retrievers who love to get into the water any chance they get. When you come to LRPR you will likely see Teddy running around the office with all of his friends in the small dog group.
From an early age, Martha tried to surround herself with animals as much as possible. She spent her time volunteering at local shelters and rescues. Martha found her passion for training dogs while in college at Franklin and Marshall where she trained her first service dog, Yoda. He taught her to become a better handler and gave her the independence she needed to continue learning.
Martha has a specialty in early puppyhood development and socialization, she helps owners navigate the process of finding a puppy, matching it to their needs, safely socializing them, and assisting owners in the process of building a solid foundation for the puppy to grow into a confident adult dog. We offer basic obedience, intermediate, all the way to advanced behaviors and troubleshooting any issues that may arise in the form of private training and board and trains.
As always, please feel free to stop by and allow us to introduce ourselves in-person. We’ve been so humbled by the warm welcome we have received. We thank you for trusting us with the care of your loved ones.
