Hi, I’m Laura! Originally starting my career with equine behaviour, progressing to hypnotherapy and NLP, I have always wanted to help people and their animals. I soon expanded my knowledge to dogs, after being around them from an early age and eventually having a reactive dog myself. I wanted to learn how I could help her, which after seeing her success, others asked me to help them with their dogs too and I felt that this was something I wanted to do more of.
I have attended several courses with the Dog Training College and recently joined their list of Approved Dog Trainers, which involved a lengthy assessment and means whilst registered, I am continually monitored and reviewed. After learning more about their ethos and dreams for the dog training community, I continued my learning with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers to qualify as a trainer. I hope that by being part of two leading governing bodies in dog training, clients can be assured of a professional and quality service.
Alongside the IMDT and DTC, over the years I have had the opportunity to train with some amazing people, such as Chirag Patel, Shawna Karrasch and Barbara Heidenreich, to name a few, who’s knowledge and experience have been invaluable to my learning journey. I regularly attend workshops to improve my knowledge and skills, alongside seminars/webinars, additional reading and my own research.
I am completely passionate about dogs and their behaviours, the science behind our understanding is continually evolving, this is why I am constantly seeking new methods and ideas to enhance my present knowledge, sharing them with owners like yourself, to help create change in a positive way.
As an Assessed and Qualified Member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, I am proud to display the UK Dog Behaviour & Training Charter symbol.
