About Laura

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a dog-loving married couple; he is a recent PhD who works 9-5 at a nonprofit, and she's an attorney who works from home. We have no dogs of our own and only accept one booking at a time. Hablo español. We are hoping for a foster placement from a rescue, so are currently only accepting reservations through early May; check our calendar please.

We both grew up with dogs and are experienced dogsitters. We have years of experience fostering rescue and military dogs in addition to dogsitting.

Your dog will enjoy several walks each day; our neighborhood is urban but tree-lined, and there are plenty of other dogs and dog-lovers around for social interaction on every walk. S/he will also enjoy pets, games, four-handed scratchies, toys and cuddles. We pretty much fall in love with all dogs we meet.

We communicate via calls and text once someone books a meet and greet, so our response time reflects how long we take to schedule new inquiries. Dogs usually have full time care, but I may leave for pre-scheduled outings of 2-4 hours if we agree on them at the time of booking. We can accommodate requests for 24 hour care based on availability.

We can only accept house-trained dogs (pad trained OK). Large dogs are fine as long as they are leash trained and do not pull too much. When boarding your dog with us, please provide his/her usual food, vet contact information, a leash and harness, a collar with contact information on the tag, a favorite toy, and something of yours so that s/he brings the smell of home along with him/her.

We thrilled with the care that Laura provided for our dog. She sent updates with pictures, so we could see how happy our dog was in her care. We have already planned to request Laura again to care for our dog
Laura and Vinnie took excellent care of our eight year old Maltese. We met them in advance and felt very comfortable leaving our dog with them. They sent us lovely photo updates while we were away and we could tell they were taking good care of our pup.

Laura & Vinny are very good host and they do take very good care of Lucky. Definitely recommended .
Laura and her husband were great with my dog. They are kind and caring and took as good care of him as I would. Thank you!
Laura and Vinny were great with our greyhound Cutter. We felt completely comfortable leaving him with them, and he was very relaxed and happy when we picked him up. They watched him for almost a week and sent us photos of him almost ever day while we were away. They are dog lovers who will treat all pups in their care as a part of their family.
We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for dog sitters, and are looking forward to them watching Cutter again the next time that we are out of town :)

Laura and her husband are so sweet and helpful. My little beagle has a little separation anxiety and always needs attention. But Laura knows dogs very well and I can tell that my pup had a really great time with them. They even bathed him for me while I was away. I couldn't be more satisfied when I saw my beagle so happy and clean. I highly recommend Laura for dog sitting and will definitely come back next time!

Laura and her husband were absolutely wonderful. Our juggle is usually very anxious and scared of men, but she took to them both right away and had a great time with them! I would gladly recommend them to anyone.
Laura and her husband were great! My dog had a good time and they were very pleasant and good to work with. No complaints on my part.
First let me say I made these reservations a day before I was leaving the State, therefore, had no time to meet Laura and Vinny in person. I so appreciated their flexability and willingness to accomodate my needs a day before my trip and let me add they kept Apache an extra day, again with only a days notice. We were nervous about leaving Apache, however felt much better after speaking over the phone as I realized how knowledgable these hosts were. I had slot of questions and advice for them regarding my dog and they were so patient and kind and put me at complete ease. During my vacation I was sent photos of Apache via E-mail which was such a wonderful surprise . Im so lucky I found such caring and flexible hosts to care for my dog and would leave him again without hesitation.

Great communication -- very understanding host! Would love to use again.
Laura and Vinny did a great job taking care of my english bulldog Porky! They have knowledge and experience caring for dogs and I felt very comfortable leaving my dog in their hands.
Laura and Vinny were just wonderful babysitters for my dog Kirin! My baby tends to be a very nervous little girl, and she received the tender, patient care she deserved at their home. I will recommend you guys to all my friends! :) Thank you for being so gentle and caring with my pup!

Our lovely Vinny (boxer-lab cross) had a lovely Christmas vacation and was spoilt rotten!
Laura, her husband, and Butterbar were all very welcoming. I think my puppy wants to go back on vacation with them!
