Lauren has been training animals as a hobby since she was twelve years old. Once Lauren got her grandmother’s dog, Daisy, enrolled into an agility training class, that was all she wrote! Lauren was bitten by the training bug.
Lauren went on to hold a keen interest in agility and competition dog training, that sticks with her today. She owns three beautiful dogs, Booski, the Corgi/Jack Russell mix, Beretta ITD, the Australian Kelpie, and Oakley ATD, the Border Collie.
