About Us

Hi! My name is Laura Long, I am the owner/operator of Adored Pet Services. Animals are what make my heart smile. I have spent years passionately trying to advocate for them. I graduated from Dogma Training and Pet Services dog training apprenticeship program in 2014, I was on the Board of Directors for Pause4change animal rescue, I am a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild, and I am certified in pet first aid and CPR through Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid. I whole heartedly believe we have to speak up for and take care of those who can't do that for themselves.


I share my home with my husband, our three kids, two dogs, Maverick and Peyton, and our two cats, Minu and Cookie. They are my reason for starting this business, drinking coffee, and vacuuming A LOT :).  That's me in the picture above with my oldest dog, Maverick. He is quite the guy. He has taught me a lot about taking care of and being empathetic to animals that require special care and understanding. I owe a lot of my animal related achievements to him. Sometimes our greatest teachers in life are not just people.


I have lived with and loved many animals in my life and have experience with animals of all sizes and tempermants. I look forward to meeting you and your furry family members.

    My name Is Taylor Watson, I am beyond lucky to have bumped into Laura at the dog park one day and then one thing led to the next and I now get to join her amazing team.

    I am so excited to be apart of Adored Pet Services journey and to help take excellent care of your furry children.


    I have loved animals my entire life and have always had a family dog.

    My name is Melody Grohs.


    Animals have always held a very special place in my heart, and I feel exceptionally lucky to be a part of the Adored Pet Services team where I can be surrounded by furry ones


    I have always had a deep appreciation for the bonds you can form with animals and how much you can learn from these relationships.

    I believe when caring for animals you need to be patient, calm, confident, and build trust at the animals’ pace.


    Currently, I have a yellow Labrador named Dezi and a Persian cat named Pogg, both are love bugs with their own special quirky personalities


    I am excited and honoured to be able to get the chance to build a special relationship with your fur babies.

    Hello, my name is Janice ter Borg and I am so excited to be a member of the Adored Pet Services team I am a life-long animal lover and passionate animal welfare advocate and have many years of experience caring for cats and dogs.

    I am owned by two crazy cats, Lexi and Rhea, and a rescued Shih Tzu dog named Sugarman. I also volunteer and foster for a number of local animal rescues. Fostering can be hard on the heart but it’s worth it when you see them adopted into the most wonderful families.


    Fostering a dog-reactive dog led me to an apprenticeship as a dog trainer for just over a year. I learned so much about dog behaviour, utilising only force-free training methods, and positive reinforcement. Over the past few years I have enjoyed working with all types of dogs, including reactive and shy dogs.


    I am also certified in pet first aid and CPR through Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid.


    I look forward to meeting you and your pets and showering them with love and attention
