Laurie is the founder and operator of Adventure Tails Dog Walking.  Growing up Laurie was always surrounded by pets.  From dogs to birds, to taking care of the classroom rabbit, she’s always had a special bond with animals.  Her love of dogs started at an early age when her parents brought home their first family dog, a Miniature Schnauzer named Heidi.  Since then she’s been a volunteer dog walker at a humane society in Melbourne, Australia, and has fostered rescue dogs for 5 years with both the Boston Terrier and Lab Rescue of Ontario.  Her experiences with dogs have made her a compassionate, respectful, affectionate, and understanding person.  Laurie understands that taking care of a dog’s physical needs, leads to the well-being of the dog.  Exercise is the cornerstone of a well-balanced, happy family dog.

Spring 2018 saw Laurie moving her family to Peterborough.  Getting back to nature and discovering the wonderful trail system Peterborough offers, is what lead to the basis of her business.  She believed if her family was getting enjoyment from exploring the trails, imagine how happy Peterborough’s dogs would be from being immersed in the sights, sounds and smells abounding in nature.  Adventure is at the heart of her nature, and she can’t wait to share in an adventure with your furry best friend.

Laurie is pet first aid trained, and believes in continuous education, taking pet care courses from top pet care professionals, including renowned dog trainer Ian Dunbar.  She is a member of Pet Sitters International , and is insured and bonded for the protection of your dog and your property.
