About Lara

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My schedule has recently changed: for the next few months I will mostly only be available to host dogs in my home on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

I've lived with dogs my entire life and I currently share my home with three. The largest is 22 pounds so I prefer to watch dogs that are 20 pounds or less. There's plenty of room in my three bedroom house and fenced back yard to burn a ton of doggy energy.

Because I live with three older dogs, I have pet stairs and rugs in most rooms for those dogs that need a little extra help getting around. When I first meet you, we will discuss your dog's personality and home environment so that I can make sure to provide the kind of care your dog is used to. Nick, Ducky, Mr Wigglesworth and I can't wait to meet you!

Lara is devoted to her dogs. I've known her for eight years and consider her a very responsible person. She always puts her dogs first and is very concerned about their safety and welfare. I know lots of pet owners, and Lara is by far the most caring and responsible, dog-loving one among them.

Lara and I met years ago when our mutual love for animals brought us both to work at the same veterinary clinic. Now she checks in on our four cats whenever we go on vacation. She sends daily updates with photos and we can relax and enjoy our trip knowing our babies are in great hands! Highly recommend!

I found Lara 15 years ago on Craigslist and she loves my dogs as much as I do! She is flexible with drop off/pick up times and schedule changes. I highly recommend her. I always leave my precious puppies with her. She's even moved out my area in the last 15 years, but I still drive my dog to her when I need sitting.

Thanks Lara for taking good care of my cavalier! Lara had my sweet pooch for 9 days and texted a pic and update every day. Lara responds quickly to communications and was flexible with changes to my schedule. Her house and yard are very dog friendly! I look forward to future vacays...

This was our first time to use DogVacay. We had always placed our little girl in a kennel and prayed she'd be ok. I have to tell you, we were very pleasantly surprised. Lara was just amazing and spoiled our baby the same way she gets spoiled at home. Lara sent us daily updates and pictures so we could see our little one was comfy and happy. Lara even bathed her and washed all her bedding before we picked her up. I would andnplan to use Lara in the future. I can't say enough nice things about her and the care she gave to our little girl! Thanks again Lara!

Lara was awesome and very accommodating. Will definitely book with her again.
Lara treats my baby like I do. I see in her pictures to me that she puts a blanket over him when he naps on the couch like I do.
