Joining the Lakeside family in August of 2016, Veronica has helped to ensure a safe and clean environment for all dogs in our care. At home, she loves nothing more than to spoil her own three dogs, and looks after her own small, yet ever expanding zoo, which includes a goat and a couple of reptiles. She aspires to take her experiences from Lakeside and apply them to a career in grooming and breeding. For the time, however, she's happy to help all dogs who come to Lakeside to grow and learn.
