Laurel has been a professional dog trainer for over 20 years. She started nose work with her dogs when the first workshops came to Northern California and has been hooked ever since! Laurel is a Supervising Certifying Official and Judge for NACSW. She has taught workshops around the country and instructed at PA and CO nose work camps. Laurel competes with her own dogs and her Australian Cattle Dog, Myrtle Mae, got to compete at two National Invitationals and is an Elite Champion. Laurel loves to create fun searches for nose work teams... the best part of CO'ing is watching people and dogs have fun together!
