A little more about the humans


Laurie and Joe Zalewski are the humans behind Laurie & Joe’s Labs. Laurie is a retired RN whose mission, purpose, and passion is now in changing her puppy buyers’ lives for the better by providing them with a healthy, well socialized puppy. Laurie still utilizes her nursing skills delivering and caring for the puppies during their neonatal period. Joe still occasionally works in the pharmaceutical QA field doing consulting but can mostly be seen at Laurie & Joe’s Labs assisting with puppy deliveries, cleaning the nursery, and washing many loads of laundry.

In their spare time, Laurie and Joe train their dogs in competitive obedience. Being active members of the Merrimack Valley Dog Club, they can be seen volunteering as ring stewards at AKC events.
