About Laura

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Laura and I've been a dog and pet lover my whole life. I've owned and loved my own miniature Schnoodle for 11 years now (Sniffy), and grew up with dogs. I've done pet sitting and dog walking on and off on my own for the last 20 years, and was also a professional dog walker and pet sitter for a year in WI. (I can provide multiple positive references upon request.)

As a pastor's wife and homeschooling mother, I have a busy but flexible schedule, so will do my best to work with your timing and needs. My husband and children all love dogs and are very good with them as well, so if you choose to have me care for your dog(s) in my home, it will be well loved! Our own dog is friendly with other dogs, too. My husband will also be around most mornings, evenings and weekends to help care for your pet. We're within 3 minutes of a vet office, and within 10 minutes of a 24-hour emergency vet center.

Our backyard is large and shady, and long leashes are hooked into the ground for your dog to have virtually free roam but the safety of not being able to run off. I can also take your dog on a walk or play catch in our backyard! I am comfortable and experienced in administering many medications as well. You may bring your own dog bed or crate if your pet is used to that for sleeping or when we have to run out for a bit, or your dog can sleep wherever they'd like in the house, including on couches and on some beds.

I am also available to come to your house for pet visits, walks and for overnight stays! And if you have multiple pets that I am caring for at your home or more than one dog that you may need to stay here, there will probably be a discount for those additional pets.

Wherever you choose to have me care for your pet, know that it will be in good hands and will be cared for and loved as if it were my own!

Lara was wonderful. Her and her family took excellent care of Lucy. They even let Lucy sleep with them. We received pictures and updates on how she spent her days. We will book with her in the future.
She did an excellent job taking care of my dogs I would use her again and again and would recommend oh my friends to her my dogs had a great time !
Swoosh had a great experience. Laura was awesome with him. She sent my daughter multiple text, photo and video updates each day we were gone. We will definitely be bringing Swoosh back next time we travel.
Laura and her family welcomed our dog for the Thanksgiving holiday while we were out of town. By all appearances, he loved it at her place and she was absolutely wonderful in all respects! Regular photo updates and her quick responses set our hearts at ease. We would definitely rebook. Thanks, Laura!
We sent our old lady (10 yr old Westie) and big big baby (4 month old German Shepard) and both were loved beyond our expectations. The westie has not liked any kennel before but Laura and her family helped her have the best time. Laura sent pictures and updates throught the time there and even took a video for us of our puppies first snow experience. So Awesome!!!! Thanks for loving our dogs like they were yours. We will definitely be back the next time we have to travel. I will recommend you to anyone without question. Thanks again!
Laura was outstanding, she stayed at my house to care for the two dogs and kept me informed with notes and pictures of how they were doing. One of my dogs is blind so I was a little concerned about leaving him, but since he was able to stay in his own environment with Laura he was fine. Upon my return, everything in the house was exactly like I left it. I will definitely call Laura again.
Laura and her family were wonderful. Lucy had a great time with them and wasn't quite sure she was ready to come home!

Laura sent me pictures and updates throughout the day which was appreciated.

I will definitely take Lucy to Laura anytime I'll be away and Lucy will be happy to see her new boyfriend and adopted family!!
Laura picked up a ladt minute vacay request and I was so grateful! Laura was so friendly and showed us all around the house. She sent lots of pictures and updates on how the weekend progressed. Her dog got along great with my dog after a brief introduction period. She even made a house call afterward to return a couple of my dog's forgotten toys. I would definitely use her services again and would recommend her to a friend!
