Have you ever met a dog that changed your life? I did. Her name is Poppy, a rescue who turned my world upside down and set me on a career path I’d never anticipated.
I’m Lauren, now a clinical animal behaviourist and in this episode, I wanted you to get to know me and how I got to where I am today. I’ll share with you the trials and triumphs of living with Poppy, how our journey together opened my eyes to the complex world of animal behaviour. I also chat about deciding to welcome my second dog Ivy to our family and how together we enjoy plenty of dog training fun.
I want Fur Real Conversations to be an honest and safe place where pet owners can ask questions, empathise and motivate each other so that together, we can lead the best life possible with our pets.

We all dream of that perfect journey when we first welcome a new pet, but animal ownership and companionship aren’t always perfect; it’s a journey of ups and downs. From those unforgettable moments of laughter to when we and our animals need a helping hand.
I’m Lauren, a clinical animal behaviourist, and Fur Real Conversations explores the realities of pet and animal ownership, one paw at a time!
I’ll share experiences, valuable expert tips, and candid conversations that inspire, empathise with and motivate you to lead the best life possible with your pet.
Poppy’s tail wags might look like simple gestures of happiness, but to me, they’re a testament to our journey of redefining the word ‘obedience’ in pet training. With my background as a clinical animal behaviourist, I’ve learned that true harmony with our pets isn’t found through demanding compliance—it’s cultivated through respect and understanding.
In this episode, I peel back the layers of traditional dog training, revealing a fresh perspective that embraces our furry companions’ unique quirks and natural behaviours. You’ll discover why your dog’s penchant for digging isn’t naughty but a genuine need and how creating outlets like a digging spot can transform your yard into a peaceable kingdom for both of you.
