About Lara

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs; caring for your dog will be my pleasure. My dog, Bru, is my constant companion and yours will make a perfect addition to our "pack". I won't take more than two dogs at a time, so your pup will have all the attention it wants. We will walk twice a day for 20-40 minutes per walk, depending on the weather. If it wants, your pup is welcome to cuddle on the couch in the evening. He or she will sleep on their bed or in their kennel at night. Bathroom breaks are upon request, 24/7. They will likely spend a lot of time lounging and playing in the backyard, depending on the weather. There will probably be a trip to the dog park. We may even go for a leashed hike. (by the way, if your dog is a leash puller, invest in an Easy Walk harness!)

I've had dogs my entire life, save for a couple of years while I was in university. When I was a baby, my best friend was a dog. I've trained several dogs, including labs and pitbulls.

I am dogmatic about:
- rescue instead of buying from a breeder;
- spay and neuter; and,
- proper training.

I'm fairly flexible with drop-off and pick-up; however I go by a 24-hour day, which means that if you want to drop off for dog boarding in the morning and pick up in the evening, I will add a day rate of $15-25 depending on how late the pick-up is compared to the drop off. Please, also try to stick to the scheduled drop-off and pick-up times. Very late pick-ups will be asked to pay an additional fee.

My rates are slightly higher than average because I do not take several dogs at once; you can rest assured that your pup is getting the attention it needs. I send several photos throughout the day. All dogs in my care go home happy and usually exhausted from playing and running in the back yard.

Lara lives in a nice house with a backyard that your dog will love to play in with her dog Bru!

She knows a lot about dogs and will take a good care of yours. She stays home with her husband so your dog will have lots of attention and love :o)

Bru is such a sweet dog and I'm sure she will be a great company during your dog's vacay!

Lara and her husband (and Bru!) were great with Ronin, who is an overall great dog, but has some quirky fear issues that we are working on and that unfortunately came out during his stay. Lara was extremely communicative and made sure to ask all the right questions—and I knew Ronin's anxieties would chill easier under her supervision. Ronin LOVED Bru and his visit as a whole! He came home and slept happily for a solid 48 hours, haha. Thank you, Lara!

Lara was absolutely wonderful with my big boy. I had to take a last minute work trip and she was able to watch him super last minute! She has a beautiful home with a lovely backyard space. Her pitty Bru is a sweetheart and her and my boy Kushy got along right away. It was the cutest thing ever :). HIGHLY recommend her for any stays with your loved pups!

Lara was wonderful with our dog. Everything was smooth and Lara was professional and responsible. We received photos so I know the dog had a great time. We will definitely use her again!
