Hi, I’m Laura DeMaio Roy

I have a deep passion and love for working with service dogs and their handlers. Growing up with a father who was going blind, and being in the disability and neurodivergent community myself, I've dedicated my life to working with service dogs.

With 14 years in the service dog industry, I've trained hundreds of guide and service dogs, both in-person and online, and placed dogs throughout the US and Canada.

My goal is to make it easy for you to get the service dog education you need so that you can feel confident working your service dog out in public.

"Online training with DOGGY•U has been so effective for my service dog and I!
Laura's lessons have been instrumental in our training progress, both with our public access and task training, but also as we prepare for our first flight together.
Laura is excellent at breaking down training exercises into small pieces so that both Des and I can be successful. I can’t believe how much our relationship and training has improved.
My service dog is better than any therapy or medical intervention I have tried before and I’m so grateful for Laura’s coaching.”
