A Bit About Lauren

"It's definitely not been all about the business and education on my end. Its been about my dogs quality of life and their happiness. Kayto was broken when I brought him home and all I could think of was creating a safe environment for this dog to show his true personality and trust in me, so he can enjoy his life. So I focused on his needs, such as running in harness, bikejoring and having well managed interactions with other dogs so he could play. It was all about him.

Then fast forward to bringing Bucky home and it's been all about Gundog work for him since he was 12 weeks old! He absolutely thrived on retrieving and working with me, so we took the training as far as he was happy to go with it. Needless to say we're still on the journey. I've learned a lot along the way in training of the sport and how I want the working relationship with my dog to be. It's not been a smooth ride and we've both suffered frustration in certain areas but right now we are a tight team and I am proud of my hard worker.

Above all, everything is about ensuring my dogs feel content in life and know they can communicate with me......and I'll listen!"
