Laura grew up around working stock
dogs. Her dad, Bob Buckman, Macksville, Kansas, trains stock dogs for a living. Laura was born and raised in Kansas. She
was around 14 years old when she got her first Border Collie, Kip.
He was bred by Ben Means. Laura's dad trained him, but Kip worked
for Laura and later Joe for his 15 years.
Laura has been driving school bus for
of the 26 years she and Joe have been married. In addition to dog
training, she enjoys training horses and teaching 4-H kids
Obedience, Showmanship and Agility. In fact, their Agility kids
were show stoppers last year at the local County Fair.
Laura has been training cattle
dogs for the public for the past 17 years. Call her for more
information and rates.
