About Laura

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome, friends! I work from home as a freelance writer and my husband is active duty military. We lost our sweet pug, Oscar, in March of 2016 after 13 wonderful years of companionship. In October of 2016, we brought home our new bundle of pugly joy, Otis!

I have extensive experience with dogs of all breeds and was always my neighborhood'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. We live in a quiet neighborhood that's perfect for walks.

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 prefer to do a meet and greet before any overnight stays, but realize that they can sometimes be hard to coordinate. Otis is very friendly around other puppies and dogs and has not demonstrated any territorial behavior. He's fixed, housebroken, and full of energy, so low energy/elderly dogs may not be the best fit at this time.

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

Absolutely love her and Oscar. They took care of Louie and he had a great time. Have another overnight booked soon and she took all the worry out of having to leave him. Wonderful experience!
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!
