Laura V is Australia's most loved animal behaviourist - bringing a wealth of experience, expertise and enthusiasm to the animals in our lives.

She’s studied everything from Zoology to Genetics and Archaeology, to the National Dog Trainers Federation Cert III in Canine Behaviour and Training. Having completed her postgraduate qualification in Education and her postgraduate Psychology degree, Laura is well placed to successfully help countless owners and their dogs around the world.

Laura has dedicated herself to a life helping animals and people alike. Her philosophy – dognitive therapy – helps dogs by training not just them, but their owners too. Based in Melbourne, she is an expert in the behaviour modification of aggressive dogs in particular.

Laura contributes regularly to a range of publications along with being the host of a weekly pet behaviour segment on Fairfax Media’s news talk radio 3AW, a dog behaviour segment on Magic 1377 and a live radio pet segment on Australia Overnight. Laura is the author of books ‘Things Your Dog Wants You to Know’ and ‘Dognitive Therapy’. She also has a podcast of the same name on SCA’s Podcast One network.
