Laura is ‘staff’ to Peri & Milo, who are both male Long Haired Miniature Dachshunds.
As well as being co-founder of Hearts & Hounds, and running a number of businesses, Laura also created a Sausage Dog Social Group for Dachshund owners from all over the South Coast! With meet ups on a monthly basis, they can be found causing mayhem from Winchester to Witterings, and beyond! There are currently almost 500 members, and the largest group meet was well in excess of 60 sausages and their staff!
The motions for Hearts & Hounds being put into action, came about when Laura popped in to see Karen for a cuppa and catch-up, after a few disaster dates and mentioned she’d had a crazy idea. It turned out that Karen had also been having an equally crazy thought, so with the motto of ‘two heads are better than one’ ringing in their ears, they put their heads and effort together to bring together what exists today!
With the thought that Peri & Milo are a huge part of her life, as most dogs are to their owners(!), Laura & Karen wanted to start a like minded community and group of people who had similar priorities and way of life, as well as certain positive personality traits that are beneficial in a long term relationship!
