PACK LEADER

Laurie

Laurie is the founder of Adventure Tails Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Services.  Growing up Laurie was always surrounded by pets.  From dogs to birds, to rabbits, 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, 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. 

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!
