Laurie Zurborg lives with her husband and "pack" of animals in Trabuco Canyon, California. She and her husband, Dave, own and operate Wags and Wiggles Dog Daycare & Training Facilities.
Laurie and Gem, her five-year-old Border Collie, will be representing Team USA in the 22" height division.
Laurie is a seasoned agility competitor, having been a finalist several times at the USDAA Cynosport World Games with Gem and one of her many rescued dogs, Gumbo. Her goal with Gem for this year's event is to run clean and have as much fun as possible.
Gem is the first dog that Laurie has done agility with that has come from a breeder. All of Laurie's other dogs have been rescues. Gem was born with an incredible work ethic and has helped Laurie fulfill her dream of representing Team USA one day.
When she's not competing, Gem is the perfect family member due to her sweet nature. That makes her the family's favorite!
