She grew up on a happy homestead with a multitude of animals and many beloved dogs. Over the years, she explored the wilderness and found that she was happiest in nature with her dogs by her side.
After living in the city and working for a busy holistic veterinary clinic, volunteering at the local SPCA and completing a degree in holistic nutrition, she decided to get back to her roots in the country.
She relocated to Salmo in October 2009, following her dream to be back in the country and after a long search for care for her own dogs, realized something was missing here in the Kootenay’s. Shortly after, Laura registered, licensed and insured UNLEASHED Dog Adventures and hasn’t looked back.
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 Nutrition 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, Wilderness First Aid , OFA 3 and is a licensed paramedic in BC. She was also a member of the local Search and Rescue specialty medical team, avalanche rescue team, swift water rescue team and rope rescue team. She has also attended ClickerExpo as well as many canine training courses, continually growing and offering your furry family member the best care available!
