About Lainie

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a Spanish teacher at MU who loves her pups. I also live at home with a family of pet lovers!

I have done AKC Rally Obedience and Agility with my own pups, so I have lots of experience working with active dogs who need lots of exercise and also benefit from some structure.

I would love to come to your house to either check on your pets a couple times a day, or to stay there overnight, or your pups can come stay with me and my supportive, pet-loving family!

Lainie was timely, professional, and good with my two dogs. I have a cranky old hound dog and it can be challenging to find a pet sitter, but Lainie did a great job. I appreciated that she kept me updated while I was away by sending me pictures, and she always responded to my texts.

We used Lainie to watch our medium-small dog one night while vacation. Lainie was professional, lives in a good neighborhood, and there were no issues with the stay. Excellent experience overall!
Lainie did an amazing job with Teddy (3month old lab/golden retriever). Since she has her family to help she is extremely flexible. I love the idea of leaving Teddy with a great family!
This was our first time having our dog, Rio, stay with Lainie. It worked out very well. We got lots of pictures and it looked like Rio had as good a time on dog vacation as we did on people vacation. Lainie took great care of our dog!
Lainie was most accommodating and very flexible with taking care of our morkie, Ty, this past Saturday. We were gone for the day and she was able to spend an hour with him. I had to request at the last moment for her to come an hour later than originally planned.

I will definitely be calling Lainie again in the near future!

Our boy Hank had a great stay with Lainie and family! Couldn't be happier! Not to mention, we were able to get in with very short notice!!
Lainie makes leaving town for the weekend so easy! No extra trips across town to the vet, no neurotic dogs...and the house is always clean and dogs very happy when we return!
Lainie took great care of Cricket! We spent a couple of weeks in vacation, and knowing she was coming by our home to take Cricket for a walk and stay with her was always a relief. I should say she really exceeded our expectations, bringing Cricket for great walks, like parks and to swim in a nearby lake - when I would be happy with a quick stroll in my street! I definitely recommend her!

So happy we found Lainie - she's been great on short notice this summer, as we've had some unexpected needs to be away from home.
Lainie is amazing! She took great care of Oscar and Velma and they loved snuggling on the couch with her over the long weekend. She was very professional and communicative and handled our energetic and slightly high-maintenance dogs like a champ!
