About Lara

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have a passion for animals of all shapes and sizes especially dogs! I have experience taking dogs out walking, hiking, going to the parks, and the ocean, along with boarding in my home or in client's home's.
I grew up with a black lab half cocker spaniel, and a Siberian Husky pup, who I trained, raised and have done occasional breeding. At one point in my childhood we had 30 cats and 20 dogs, and being home schooled gave me the joy of being around them all day. I try to constantly educate myself in dog training methods and dog behaviors, which has helped me successfully lead the pack of dogs that I become very close to.
I have been in dog care professionally while working full time as a Supervisor and last year I decided to quit my 5 years in customer service to pursue my dream, which was to start my own dog care business. I hope to make great relationships with you and have the blessing to watch and help your pup grow.
My home has a huge, fully fenced backyard, and the pooches are supervised 24/7 and sleep in my room at night. When sitting inside your home I am clean, quiet, and respectful. I love exhausting them on outings to the beach or hikes, and love playing fetch or frisbee. I am full of energy and your pup will not even know you were gone until you return. I like to keep them busy exploring outdoors, if dog friendly I let them socialize at local dog parks, or take a trip to the pet store and find a toy they sniff and like. I do not like to just sit inside and watch TV, they need to have an adventure, and that is what I give them. I am aware of dogs that may have health conditions and if they need mellow activity, I always follow that need. After they are pooped I love to cuddle and update you with photos.
My schedule is very open and flexible. There comes times when I am only available for half of the service or already booked, so I have a work partner that has been assisting me for a year and is amazing with dogs! Kelsey grew up raising and breeding Pomeranians, and has joined me on many of my dog care adventures. She normally comes with me to greet n meets, so we all can get to know each other. Kelsey is professional, energetic, caring and very attentive with dogs, and we work and communicate well with each other.
I hope you find my tail wagging possé the right fit for you and your dog!

Please note that there will be an additional $5 charge for the holiday dates.
For Dogs younger than 1yr old there will be an additional $10 charge. Some breeds do not apply mainly due to size.

For Boarding
Request that you walk your dog for 30min-1hr if your drop off time is after 3:00pm, because all the dogs already staying will have had exercise for 4 hours. It really helps me if I can provide a max of 5-6 hours of exercise so the dogs are not restless and unable to sleep the entire night.
Pick up time that is a 3hr difference than drop off time will be considered daycare for that day with an additional charge of $30 per dog. Thank you!

Nov 2016
Lara has been watching my mini-poodle, Maeby, for about 5 months now, since Maeby was 4.5 months old. In this time, Lara has proven herself to be an incredibly responsible and caring dog sitter. She is excellent with Maeby, making sure she is exhausted and happy when I pick her up. From walks to the beach to play dates with the other dogs Lara and her partner, Kelsey, watch, Maeby has very full and active days while I am at work. Lara is also very considerate of my time, letting me drop Maeby off early or pick her up late if my schedule gets out of control. On the few occasions this has happened, Lara even fed Maeby so she wouldn't be hungry while she waited. And, it should be emphasized that Maeby is in agreement with this review - she loves her days with Lara and Kelsey and eagerly awaits her next visit. If you need some one to watch your dog who will provide all the activity and affection that a pup needs, Lara is the best!

Since I got my puppy 2 months ago, I have had Lara watch him at least a few times a week while I am at work. She has been the most wonderful dog sitter I could ask for! My dog Ernie is so excited to see her each time he gets to her house. He gets lots of exercise and socialization because he's playing with other dogs all day long. I feel very confident that I am leaving Ernie in good hands whenever I drop him off. Lara is also super flexible and understanding about drop off and pickup times which is really nice for me cause my work schedule is a bit unpredictable. Lara has taken wonderful care of my pup and is basically his second mom. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a reliable, responsible and overall awesome dog sitter!

Lara is great with our pets, a lab and a parakeet. She let us know when she arrived and sent sweet photos while we were away. She took great care of our home too. I can highly recommend her for pet and home care!
Did a great job. My dog had a good time.
Lara was great! We loved the pictures every day and our dog Boo had an even better vacation that we did!
