Lara and Elsie.jpg


My name is Lara, and I'm here to help you, help your dog to reach their full potential.  I'm an accredited trainer with the  Association of Pet Dog Trainers and a recognised Animal Training Instructor with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council, two of the biggest regulating bodies in the industry. I hold a BSc in Animal Behaviour and Wildlife Conservation, and was a zoo keeper for one of the country's best loved zoos, which gave me exposure to all kinds of animals and their unique behaviours. 

I have a gorgeous Labrador who I work and train in the gundog field. 

My Story

Growing up in South East Asia, combined with strong roots in Africa, fuelled my passion for animals and their welfare. I have had the privilege to have worked with countless species of animals from dogs to wolves, lemurs to chimpanzees, tapirs to elephants, domestic cats to lions and tigers; and everything in between. After leaving the zoo world, I ran a successful pet sitting and dog walking business for 7 years. Each individual I have worked with all had their own personality, and gave me the best education into the nuances and intricacies of animal behaviour. My goal is to help pet guardians understand their pets and to open communication in order to set them up to succeed and build a bond that will last a life time. I follow the Do No Harm approach to dog training utilising positive and fear free methods. I am a full member of the APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers) and have studied with numerous recognised organisations. I am currently undertaking a Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management.
