Laura McHugh, Constructive Canines

Laura is the Staff Training Manager for Pets In The City, and is responsible for training caregivers at Pets In City Wairau Park and Silverdale. Laura's philosophy is centred around building a relationship with your dog. She believes that it should be a collaborative effort rather than a situation where the owner demands obedience from their dog. Laura is passionate about learning and developing new techniques to help both dogs and their guardians. Her two dogs, Keira and Kai, are a source of inspiration for her. Seeing how differently they learn and what motivates each of them, inspires her to teach people to better understand their dogs. Laura holds several qualifications and is currently studying for more. She is also a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers New Zealand. When she is not at Pets In the City, Laura runs her own successful Dog Training Company, Constructive Canines.
