About Lauren

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Thank you for visiting my page! I am an animal lover, dog-parent and an all-around caring, considerate human.

I recently changed my services and am now offering In-home Pet Sitting and Dog Walking. I would be happy to extend love, care and exercise for your dog when you have someplace to be!

Pet Sitting in the Comfort of your Dog's Home!
Why bring your dog to a strange new house, when s/he can enjoy the comforts of their familiar environment while you are away? I offer reliable and trustworthy in-home pet sitting at your residence all year round - whether it be for a couple hours or weeks, your pup will get top-dog care and attention and playtime with me and my Canine Efficiency Officer, Maya the Boston Terrier. She loves to meet and play with new dogs, so your pooch will never be bored. She also knows when it’s time to take a break and nap!

In addition to around the clock in-home care, I can also make sure your plants, mail and general home up-keeping is taken care of (small extra fee).

Walk this Way, Dog Walking Services!
My dog walking services include pick up/drop off at your home and exercise that accommodates his/her activity level - from walks around the neighborhood, trips to the dog park or hiking on or around Mt. Tam - I'll design an activity plan just for your pooch!
**Note: I do not lead pack hikes, this service is highly personalized for your dog! **

I look forward to connecting with you and please feel free to ask me any questions!

All went smoothly with Lauren. She was very responsive and asked a lot of questions to make sure that my pup was well taken care of.
Bamboo LOOOOOVES staying with Lauren and Maya!
We were going out of town for the weekend and needed someone to watch our Cavachon, Smokey. After a few meet and greets we settled with Lauren due to the fact that she works from home, was really close to us and had an enclosed outdoor area where Smokey could play. Smokey is only 13 pounds and is often intimidated by larger dogs but the fact that Lauren has a small dog was the clincher. Smokey ended up having a wonderful time playing with Lauren's dog. A very pleasant experience!

Lauren took my boy Bailey on a walk/hike today and when I came home I found a very contented dog! Lauren will do a few more walks for me later this month and I have no doubt they will all go well.
Lauren is a great sitter. Milo had a wonderful time with her, she was very responsive, send us pictures every week. I most definitely recommend her, we look forward to bring Milo back, he returned a happy dog, well taken care of and found new friends in Lauren and Maya.

Homer's first stay with Lauren went really well. Communication before and during was timely and detailed. Thanks for taking such good care of Homer!!
Lauren took great care of my dog. She sent photos of Maddie when she brought her on a walk or at the dog park. I can tell Lauren really cares about the dogs she's sitting for. She was very flexible with me and I would definitely use her again.
2nd time with Lauren. Bamboo loves her! She is definitely family! He always comes back happy and well-exercised. Lauren rocks! Woof! (
Lauren was a great host for our energetic little guy, We could tell he had a good time. Highly recommended. Thanks again!
I felt totally comfortable leaving my dog with Lauren. He hates being away from me but she really connected with him and made his stay as pleasant as possible. I would not hesitate to leave him again with Lauren!
Fillmore had a blast with Lauren, can't wait to come back again!
Lauren was great - very friendly and easy going. Sent me cute pictures of my dog on their outings. My dog LOVED her dog and they had a blast together. Will definitely keep them in mind for the future!
Our lab Bamboo had quite a Memorial Day! The sign of a good host is when your pup is sad to come back home, like a kid whose vacations have been cut short ;) Lauren took fantastic care of Bamboo - he's been hiking and exploring the beach and playing with Maya, Lauren's dog. Thank you for all the fantastic photos, Lauren! We put a few on our fridge :)
