Meet Laura Taylor

"Make the Dog House a Thing of the Past!"

Owner and Trainer

Laura opened Peachable Paws, LLC in May, 2021. Peachable Paws is located in Palisade, Colorado where the property is utilized to further promote the well-being, learning, recreation and happiness of dogs. 

Laura graduated from Colorado State University and gradually migrated from the Front Range to the Mountains during her previous career in Human Resources. In 2005, Laura would travel 60 miles on the weekends to work at a dog daycare to fulfil her true passion. In 2009, she and her Golden Retriever, Kelsea, became certified Pet Partners and Kelsea a Good Citizen Canine.  Laura served as a volunteer with Heeling Partners where she and Kelsea paid visits to the local nursing home and helped kids with reading difficulties in the “Paws to Read” program.  After meeting her husband, Patrick in Aspen, they rescued Duncan, an Australian Kelpie from an animal sanctuary before having their son, Lawson.  They relocated to the grand valley and Laura finally got the courage to jump ship from her 20-year career in HR to serve in Animal Welfare.  

She began at Roice-Hurst Humane Society late 2016 as the Volunteer and Events Coordinator, utilizing her existing skill set with the intention of gaining extended knowledge around the world of Canine’s. In 2018, she became the Dog Behavior Counselor, guided by her mentor, Marissa Martino on the front range. Laura joined Alpine Behavior and Training part-time in late August of 2020 taking over the Monday puppy school as well as private consults in the roaring fork valley and concluded her contract work there in April, 2020. At the same time, she obtained her certification through the Association of Professional Dog Trainers as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge-Assessed (CPDT-KA). At RHHS, remaining as the Dog Behavior Counselor and also started working with the Cat Behavior Program in February, 2021. Laura left RHHS to begin her own Board and Train, Peachable Paws in the Summer of 2021. The newest four-legged member to her family, Sammie, was adopted from the shelter and was certified as a Canine Good Citizen in April, 2021. Laura cannot wait to get Sammie into the community to provide therapy and use as a demo dog with her clients through Peachable Paws, LLC!
