About laura

Where to begin! I love dogs and have grown up with one consistently in my life and I am now 26 years old. I recently lost my doggie and really miss her. Since now is not the right time, I am holding off from getting another furry friend. In the meantime, I am excited to be able to watch other dogs. Living independently and being fairly new to the area, I was in desperate need of a sitter when I had to go out of town. I did not want to spend an arm and a leg, and was very cautious to where I would feel comfortable enough to leave my dog for a few days. My dog was older and needed someone gentle and caring. Also, I was worried about other dogs playing too rough with her. I was so lucky to not only find DogVacay, but the sitter I found was AMAZING! Unfortunately, she just recently relocated so I cannot recommend her for San Diego. Anyways, I thought this would be the perfect way to occupy my weekends and get a cuddle buddy back.

I am very active and will be more than happy to take your little one on walks, runs, dog beach, dog park, and just play. I am very loving and can assure you your baby is in good hands. I was told my previous dog, Vita, would not make it past a week, but I did everything I could to make her as strong as I could. I gave her an IV, got her appetite back, and enjoyed almost a full year with her. I will treat your dog as my own and give them the loving care they need.

I do work throughout the week so your dog would have to be ok for the time I am gone. I am usually gone for 8 hours at a time.

My fiance and I are home all WEEKEND so they will have 24 hour care during that time.

My apartment complex is dog friendly and has a dog run where we can play fetch. I have grass out in front of my apartment but do not really have a yard. I do have a patio that the dog can wonder out on if they like to bask in the sun. No worries if your dog has a lot of energy I will be taking them for runs, walks, and whatever else seems to fit.
If you are considering my services please bring the following: food, leash, and (for not so house broken puppies) a few puppy pads.

If I do not mention a service you are looking for, I may not be opposed to provide. Maybe you need me to pick up your dog before you head out of town because of your hectic schedule (i have been in your shoes), I could work something out depending on your location. Also, I am not a professional groomer but of course if I take your dog to dog beach or obviously can tell they probably need a bath, no problem.

Thank you and I look forward to watching your dog!

Super nice and very flexible! Our dog had a great stay!
Laura was great. Available on time and gave our dog a walk, which he loves. I will definitely contact her again for availability when we visit the area. I loved to feel that someone was able to let my baby sit on the couch since he likes fluffy blankets and plush couches! Thanks again Laura.
I met with Laura first and brought my
little Jack Russell to also meet her.
I knew right away that Laura was responsible and very loving of dogs.
She kept Hailey for almost 2 weeks and I never worried once. She sent me a few pictures and Hailey was smiling. When I went to pick her up,
Hailey had a difficult time deciding as she had such an enjoyable time with Laura. I highly recommend her!!
Laura was amazing- took Ollie to the dog park, and sent multiple emails with photo updates throughout the weekend, as we were out of the country and couldn't receive texts. Would definitely use her again!
Helped out in a very short time crunch with a dog she had never met. Thanks soooo much! Very friendly and polite.
I cannot say enough good things about Laura. She was very responsive and professional. We had an unexpected trip that required us to leave our "boys" behind. She met with us on very short notice and was able to give us the peace of mind that they would be in great hands. I really appreciated that she even sent us a couple of pictures of them making themselves at home. When we picked them up, they seemed to be very content. We will be using Laura for our next trip. Thank you!!!
This was the first time I used DogVacay and I was extremely pleased with the experience. Laura is great with dogs and during the stay Bradshaw had a companion - larger and a bit friskier - but they seemed to get along great. She even sent a picture of them sleeping next to each other on the floor. Also, as I was visiting my daughter in college in San Diego, Laura readily accommodated our picking up
Bradshaw to take him out for a while and then returning him. It was just a good experience overall and I would utilize her services again in the future. Martin W.
Laura was awesome. She watched over both our dogs for a whole week and we couldn't have asked for better. She was flexible, very reasonable, and accomodating from the start when we had to change dates around. The dogs did really well and she really paid attention to thme. She went running daily with my (overactive) Dalmatian and was really good about giving the medications to our older dog. She also kept us updated and sent us pictures of how they were doing. We highly reccomend her.
Laura was fantastic very flexible dog sitter. We dropped my abby off early and had traffic issues when we came to get her, Laura was very patient and worked with the delays very well. I received pictures of my baby daily and Abby looked so happy and relaxed. When we first dropped the 10 week puppy off she was introduced to a weiner dog and right off the bat started to play and enjoy herself! It was very cute. Laura didn't complain about the fact that My puppy wasn't all the way potty trained and had only good things to say about Abby. I definitely had confidence she was being taken care of really well and will definitely use Laura again!
Laura has been awesome- My dog always comes back in a great mood and I can tell she enjoyed her stay!
Laura was flexible to my needs, super trustworthy and great with my little man!
Laura is a great host who has always kept my dog a happy camper! My pup is very active, sov I appreciate all the time and attention that Laura gives to her by keeping her exercised.

I highly recommend Laura to anyone who is looking for a home away from home for their doggie.
Laura was great for my dog Oscar! I can tell he had a good time and felt at home. She took him to the dog beach and on a run. She also kept me updated with photos!
Laura did a great job caring for my little one. I received updated photos throughout her stay and could see how much fun Baja was having. Her big smile said it all! I will definitely use Laura again in the future. Thanks again Laura! :)
Laura was great! I felt completely comfortable having her watch both my dogs. She sent pictures and made sure I knew they were doing great. I would 100% recommend her to other people and will definitely be using her again. Thanks so much Laura!!
Laura was a great host to our lil guy. She kept in contact with us daily and was genuine . Thanks, Cheeto
We gave laura a try on our visit in san diego last weekend and we were extremely satisfied with her service. She sent us pictures and let us know how ruckus was doing and that we were able to enjoy our weekend knowing that our baby was taken care of. We will definitely go back to laura and recommend her service to anyone. Thanks again laura! We will see you again.
Our booking was rejected by another sitter at the last minute, and boy are we glad. Laura and Anthony are awesome, they took great care of our fur baby. We were moved onto an earlier flight, and they were able to accommodate. Over the stay, they kept us in the loop by txting photos and what he was doing/did that day. They're also very active, which is perfect because Zeus is a very energetic dog. He came home totally pooped and sleepy. We'll definitely book with them again.
