About Us

Laura has had a lifelong love of animals and a passion for the wilderness.

She grew up on a happy homestead with a multitude of animals and many beloved dogs and after living in the city and working for a busy holistic veterinary clinic, volunteering and fostering for the local SPCA and completing a degree in holistic nutrition, she decided to get back to her roots in the country with her dogs by her side.

 She relocated to Salmo in 2009 and after searching for suitable care for her own dogs realized that personalized care was needed for many furry family members in the west kootenays.   

Unleashed is located on a beautiful 6 acre piece of property, with a large fenced in area and the river a short stroll away.

With her background in holistic care she has always taken great pride in caring for animals naturally.  She is continuously training and educating herself and has successfully completed her Dog First Aid Certification, Relation, Wilderness First Aid , OFA 3 and is a licensed paramedic in BC.  She was also a member of the local Search and Rescue team. Laura has attended ClickerExpo, Nelson Hodges Relationship Based Behaviour Modification Seminar as well continually partaking in canine training courses, always growing and offering your furry family member the best care available!
