About Laura

34 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Dog Gone's Beach House! A sunny beach adventure for your furry friend while you enjoy your vacation!
*Note: my HOA allows for one large (over 40 lbs) or two small (under 40 lbs) pets so I am unable to accommodate folks who have two dogs unless they are small breeds.
A typical day with me will start with a nice walk to the country club in the morning. Depending on your pup's needs we may take another walk or a bike ride in the evening; a well-exercised dog is a happy dog:) I live in a newly remodeled townhouse on the golf course in a quiet neighborhood. Your pup MUST be house-trained! I have raised and trained dogs (mostly Shepherds) for over 30 years and cared for lots of different breeds, both big and small. My best friend, Roxy, has passed away and I miss the company of a canine companion:) I work from home and have no other pets so your pal will be "top dog" here as I only take one booking at a time (there may be occasional exceptions if bookings overlap). I only ask that your best friend come to me clean and free of fleas, ticks, and other critters, be good with people, completely housebroken, and up-to-date with their vet care. This is my home, not a kennel, and I will love them and care for them as if they are my own.

We left our Boston Terrier, Maxwell with Laura for 3 days recently and could not have been more pleased. It was obvious to me immediately that she is very knowledgeable about dogs. I felt very comfortable right away with the decision to leave our dog in her care. Laura is a great communicator; she sent numerous photos of Max during his short stay and responded promptly to us when we reached out to her both before his stay and while we were away. We are traveling again in a few weeks and are hoping that she will be available to take care of Max again.

On a five star scale, I would give Laura 5 bright stars! It was a wonderful experience and Laura was exceptional. Laura is a wonderful, caring woman who spent some time really getting to know Kelsey and our routine before we left for the Thanksgiving holidays. That immediately raised my comfort level. She was easy to reach, very quick to respond to all messages, extremely compassionate and very organized. Our dog is very spoiled, and Laura treated her exactly as we do! She was so thoughtful, she even offered picking up any last minute supplies from the grocery store so I could focus on packing my family for our upcoming vacation. I must also mention, she is also the “food master! Kelsey, our 12 year old Italian Greyhound, usually doesn’t eat for a day or two after we leave her in a new environment, and Laura texted me the first night we were gone indicating Kelsey ate all her food! Laura truly enjoys exercise and actually walked my dog 5+ times a day. She was not like others who have just let my dog go in and out of the doggie door to “go potty”. Laura’s was 100% professional, thorough and thoughtful. I got tons of daily pictures and videos of Kelsey walking all over Cocoa Beach. It was quite refreshing to get “active” pictures of my pup and not just pictures of her sleeping/laying on the couch. Those daily messages truly kept Kelsey in my heart and mind and reassured me she was content and enjoying her Vacay. Laura’s house is the perfect place for your dog to be at home away from home! Laura treated Kelsey with as much love as possible and that was vital for me to know when I already felt so guilty for leaving her. Laura will exceed your expectations for hosting. I will not have any hesitations contacting Laura for future Dog Vaycay requests. I previously have had terrible experiences leaving Kelsey at boarding facilities only for her to come home with illnesses or depression. Kelsey came home from Laura’s happy and tired. I have no doubt she had more fun on her Vaycay then I did! If you want your dog to be safe and well taken care of the way you would do for your dog, I highly recommend Laura to take care of your fur baby when you go on your next vacation!

Very pleased with Laura, our eleven year old Luke had never stayed with anyone but family before so where just a tad worried. We should not have been, everything went well. The daily videos and pictures are great. Without a doubt will use Laura again in future.
