EDUCATION& Affiliations

  • MSc in clinical animal behaviour from the University of Edinburgh. Lauren's research examined the behavioural effects on horses of a controversial training practice

  • Fear Free® Certified Professional

  • Graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy Puppy Start Right for Instructors course


  • In addition to her work as a clinical animal behaviourist, Lauren has 30+ years of experience working with cats, dogs, and horses in a variety of capacities: veterinary assistant, animal control officer, horse trainer, & riding instructor, executive director & manager of a non-profit animal shelter

It's no surprise that I chose this profession:

I love animals.


I am fortunate to share my life with some wonderful animals: three dogs, Fiver, FigJam, and Corb, three horses, a magnificent cat named Fuzzy Hooker Boots, and my husband Dr David Lane, DACVSMR, a veterinary sports medicine specialist at Points East West Veterinary Services. 


My dog training interests include dock diving, agility, cooperative care, tricks, and scent detection. My horse training interests include cooperative care, starting horses under saddle, and training solid foundation behaviours. My cat has trained me to run the shower anytime he wants fresh water.
