The Libelle Family
MCpl Eric & Mrs Laura Grandmont
Laura has been involved in the dog world for two decades in one capacity or another. She started as a child learning and assisting various trainers in various dog sports. Laura's uncle was her guiding force, getting her started in dogs from a very young age. At age 14 Laura began to apprentice under Ron Murray of Leidenschaft Kennels and Kim Murray of Animals In Motion who gave her a solid education in working with dogs. Over the years she participated in conformation and obedience, as well as schutzhund. Laura has wrangled animals for film and television and also assisted in teaching various classes from puppy to specialized trick training.
Laura acquired her first rottweiler in the '90s from her mentor in the breed Kim Livingston of Drachenbrau Kennels. Over the years she showed various breeds to a variety of wins & titles in the Maritime Region. She also spent time coordinating rottweiler rescues in Nova Scotia.
In 2004 Eric & Laura married and moved fulltime to the beautiful Annapolis Valley with plenty of time to pursue their mutual love of the dog world. As Eric is a Flight Engineer in the Canadian Air Force, we go where we must, and that can often mean moving when we would rather stay put! However the dogs are our priority and we always make sure our home is as comfortable for them as possible. In 2007, we relocated to Edmonton, Alberta.
After moving to Alberta, Laura was introduced to the amazing world of the Italian Greyhound. With guidance & kindness from Don Brown of Broomhall, we acquired our first IG 'Rosetta', and we have never looked back! Our dog family expanded with the acquisition of a second IG 'Gambler' co-owned with Karen Chant of Diavolino IGs. Our Rotts & IGs get along wonderfully, even though it is definitely a contrast!
We are now back in the Maritimes, in the beautiful capital region of New Brunswick, in Oromocto.
