About Laura

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***November 2016 Update: My husband and I recently welcomed a pug puppy into our home and are currently taking a break from dog sitting until puppy, Otis, is fully vaccinated, neutered, potty trained, socialized, etc. I anticipate we'll resume sitting around the new year. At that time, we will only be accepting smaller dogs.***

All dogs welcome! I work from home as a freelance writer and my husband is active duty. We lost our sweet pug, Oscar, in March of 2016 after 13 wonderful years of companionship.

I have extensive experience with dogs of all breeds and was always my neighbor's 'go to girl' for pet sitting when I lived in Norfolk, VA. I'm very comfortable with administering oral and optical medications as well as injections (Oscar was diabetic).

There is plenty of room in our backyard for your dog to run around and they are welcome to lounge anywhere in our home.

I will take two dogs from the same family at once, but not 2 dogs from different families as there is no way of knowing how they will interact with one another.

I promise to treat your dog(s) with the utmost love and care.

Our family could not have been more pleased with our first DogVacay experience; so much better than having to leave our "furry family member" at a kennel! Laura was great to work with, and our dog Toby truly had a "vacation" during his stay with her. Laura carefully listened to all of our concerns, even giving Toby his heart worm and flea and tick medication which came due during his stay. She kept us updated with texts and photos, responding quickly when we contacted her. Her home was very neat, clean, and dog-friendly, including a fenced-in back yard. I will definitely be making reservations for our dog to stay with Laura the next time we are in the area. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

She was incredible with both of my pups! They always looked like they were having fun, spoiled with their own bed to look out the window and toys were everywhere. Plus they got to learn what a chicken was in the neighbor's yard ;) I recommend her for sure, and I will be returning to her again!

My dogs loved staying with Laura. We had a great time on vacation. Not having to worry about my babies. Would definitely use her again.
