Laura Townsley

Certificate IV Veterinary Nurse

Laura brings several years of experience in both veterinary nursing and in dog behaviour training (which is a passion of hers). As such, she fits right in with our ‘fear-free’ approach to handling all pets. 

Her favourite part of work is being able to treat our patients in the same way she’d treat her own pets – lots of cuddles, warmth and kindness. She also loves seeing pets go home with their owners happy, relaxed and safe!

On the home front, Laura has a Boxer, named Winter, Shaq the Bull Mastif, Frappe the jersy cow along with the love of her life, a frenchie called Forrest! Laura and her partner recently purchased a property in One Tree Hill so she has space for the dogs and a place for Ashy, her lovely Quarterhorse x Arab horse. Her favourite pastimes involve adventures in the outdoors including camping and hiking in the forest with her partner. Ashy is also a regular participant!

Outside of working here, Laura also runs private dog training classes. Her interest in behaviour started with the arrival of ‘Winter’who came with some attitude challenges. To help with this, Laura enrolled in the Delta Society behaviour training course. She’s now a fully qualified DELTA Trainer.

Laura and her partner Nathan welcomed Reggie to their family in April 2022.

Overall, Laura really doesnt have to worry what to do in her spare time – she doesnt have any!!
