About Laura

I currently have two dogs and 2 budgies, and I am dedicated to their care and training. Animals fill my life with joy and I am hoping to transition into a career in dog boarding, walking and training to escape the rat race.
I have volunteered on local farms over the years with all types of animals and I know my future is to work within nature and with animals, with dogs being my absolute favourite.
My current career is working part time as a nurse educator within a local university.
I am undertaking my Level 3 OFQUAL recognised certificate in canine behaviour, welfare and legalities, hoping to complete this by mid February 2024, to obtain my home boarding licence.
 

I have a securely fenced garden, along with a husky and a border collie who adore playtime. I have a car and would be able to transport your pup for days out. I have plenty of experience of caring for frail dogs, as one of my boys has a spinal injury resulting in paralysis. He is now walking well, but struggles sometimes. I also looked after my childhood family dog until she passed at 17, so I understand the needs of elderly dogs and can accommodate this by moving my dogs into different rooms if your pup needs rest. I am would be happy to walk intact females, however my dogs are not neutered and would likely cause chaos for the poor girl, therefore I can't board. 

I love to practice training skills with dogs and also enjoy going on walkies around the neighbourhood or to the park near me. I am not put off by rain or snow (I own a husky!!) and will get out and about in any weather. I also like to use enrichment games, if it really is dangerously grim outside.. I also love bathing dogs, so if they get too mucky, I would happily bathe and groom them, depending on my confidence with your pet (may incur an extra fee).

Skills

Specific Skills

I speak English
+10 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
I have volunteered on local farms over the years and have experience in caring for horses, ponies, chickens, ducks, pigs, goats and sheep. I grew up with a reactive rescue dog and worked on training her throughout my teen years. My partner also has a reactive staffie (14y/o) and I walk him solo at less sociable hours so that he has an enjoyable time. My two dogs are well trained and we regularly socialise with other dogs, as well as practice agility in off lead areas. I am currently studying my L3 OFQUAL canine welfare and boarding certificate and will be complete in 1.5 months.
