Laura is one half of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers Australia education team, a leading education provider for dog trainers and behaviourists. Laura spends a lot of her time creating fun and engaging training courses for pet dogs. 2014 saw Laura create The Canine Adventure course – a non-competitive dog sport, for the family dog to enjoy. The Canine Adventure Course saw Laura travel to Las Vegas in 2016 to presents at the annual APDT conference, and then to London in 2017 where she presented at the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers Conference. There are now trainers all over the world running their very own fun Canine Adventure Courses – which for Laura, means more dogs out there, having fun with their families! Laura shares her home with her husband, daughter, her four Border Terriers – Wicket, Malani, Lando and Rogue – and her 30-year-old horse, Arnie.
