About Lara

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love animals. I own a house in the North End and currently work part time at St. Luke's. I am within walking distance to Camel's Back and have no problem taking dogs out there for hikes. My house has it's own medium sized back yard that is fully fenced with shade available and, if a dog is potty trained, they are welcome to roam the upper level of my house. I understand an animal is family. I know how to treat them and respect them and do not believe in any sort of spanking/slapping. I use positive reinforcement only. My current dog is 6, and I've had her since she was 7 weeks old.

Please notice my animal limits. I cannot accept more than 2 dogs at a time as my house will not accommodate them, and I'm not as comfortable with more. Thank you.

My work schedule has recently changed - please check my calendar to ensure I am available before sending a request.
I am currently fostering for the Humane Society and will periodically have kittens around. If your dog does not like cats, they have a room designated to them and I can keep them separated. Just please mention that in your message.

In the past I have done pet sitting for friends and often for my parents little dog and golden retriever. I haven't met a dog I don't like yet, and can't see that happening.
I also have taken care of newborn kittens, cats, under 6 week puppies. I know how to bottle feed and administer oral medications. I prefer not to give shots, but I am able.

We had our 12-year old lab stay over for Thanksgiving week. Lara, our host, was very pleasant. The house was clean and well-kept. After talking with her and seeing the house, we were not concerned at all to leave our dog there. She made a great bed for our dog to sleep on and texted us photos of our dog while we were away. Lara was very flexible in arranging drop-off and pick-up times, which was very helpful since we don't live in Boise. I recommend considering Lara for your next Dog Vacay. Thanks, Lara!

I have been a dogvacay host myself for a couple of years but this is the first time I was on the other side of the equation and using dogvacay as a customer. Lara could not have been more accommodating and easy to work with.
She was very flexible and dealt with all of our neurosis with ease (mine for wanting to be close to my fur baby and visit w/ him mid vacay and his with carrying a ball around and whining at the kittens she was fostering).
She was great at sending photo updates and keeping in touch throughout the weekend and I could tell Roscoe was happy and comfortable there.

Lara was a great sitter for George during our wedding day! We had a chance to meet Lara and Whicket before hand, and then we knew George was safe and sound as we celebrated.
Lara provided exceptional care for our pets while we were away. She also sent daily updates (with photos), which we greatly appreciated. She was very easy to work with and provided an open line of communication. Thanks, Lara!
