About Laura

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a lifelong animal lover with professional experience as a mid-day dog walker/overnight pet sitter. I am new to DogVacay, but I currently have 30 active pet sitting clients in Montgomery County, MD and Washington, D.C., and also assist in the weekly care of 17 horses at a local horse training farm - can provide references upon request. I formerly walked dogs on a daily basis for Time for a Walk, LLC (Arlington, VA) for 8 months while I was finishing graduate school. I am also a former Volunteer Dog Handler with Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation (Arlington, VA) where I handled adoptable dogs for PetSmart adoption events. Other animal care experience includes former employee at Petco as well as volunteer Horse Trainer with Days End Farm Horse Rescue (Woodbine, MD).

I am comfortable walking and caring for puppies, elderly, blind, and deaf dogs, as well as dogs with human fear/aggression issues on a case by case basis. I have personally owned horses, cats, a cockatiel, hamsters, and fish! I can keep plants alive too!
