Services for Dog Owners

Dogs and humans have been living together for as long as 14,000 years. Whether dogs originally befriended us or vice versa is a topic that is heavily researched and discussed among scientists, but one thing is certain: dogs have come to rely on us more and more for every single one of their needs. Today, in our modern society and culture, our dogs depend on us for 100% of their care.

Even in the last few years, providing a healthy, happy life for our dogs has become more and more complex. From developments in food and nutrition to new training methods and mindsets, to how we transport them in cars or prepare for emergencies, we have evolved for the better from the old days of “toss some food in a bowl and let them outside sometimes” as a dog care philosophy.

In fact, for new dog owners or for veteran dog owners who want to ensure that they are providing the best care possible for their dogs and staying on top of the most recent knowledge, the amount of information online can be overwhelming and even downright terrifying!

Trust me, I know. I have been there.

I remember looking at young Jackson when he came home to us as an eight-week old puppy, and thinking that I was responsible for his entire life, for every single one of his needs, from that day forward until he was a senior dog and would take his last breath with me by my side. Having lost two beloved dogs to cancer prior to getting him, I vowed at that moment to work nonstop to create the healthiest lifestyle that I could in order to keep him healthy and happy for as many years as possible. And so, a veteran dog owner with a brand new little life under my care, I created the Love, Laugh, Woof happy, healthy, holistic lifestyle for first Jackson and then Tinkerbell.

Now you can learn how to create a happy and healthy lifestyle for your dogs through my Love, Laugh, Woof, Learn educational sessions. Choose from one-on-one dog owner coaching or group workshops (online or in person) to learn how to be the best possible owner, caretaker, and companion to your dogs. To learn more, just email me at

One-on-one coaching means that you and I will sit down over coffee or via an online meeting on Zoom or Skype and talk about your specific dog care questions and problems.

Group workshops are just that, we will gather as a group, I will teach you what I know, I will give you worksheets and we will have a fun, educational get together of dog owners.

You can attend a scheduled class as an individual or arrange for me to come and teach a group for you and your friends, clients, co-workers or another gathering of dog owners. If you do not live in the Chicago area or feel your peers would rather learn online from the comfort of their PJs with their dog by their side, we can set up an online course.

Let’s work together for something fun and different for your lunch and learns, monthly meetings, special events or other functions. As a solopreneur, I get to brainstorm and do things outside of the normal proverbial box.
