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!

Laura spent 2 nights at my house with my 2 senior dogs and cat. She was wonderful and sent me plenty of pictures and commentary that made me smile while I was away. That really helped because I had never left my them with anyone other than family. while I was away. That really helped because I had never left my them with anyone other than family. I would definitely have Laura come back!

Laura was very accommodating to us and flexible, and her communication was prompt and friendly. Most importantly we immediately felt upon meeting her and her family that our two little dogs would be happy, comfortable, and loved staying in her care and her family that our two little dogs would be happy, comfortable, and loved staying in her care for an entire week. This proved correct as during our vacation we received communication, photos and videos each day of our pups playing and doing normal dog things...all of which gave us great peace of mind and allowed us to relax while we were away.

We had recently lost a dog sitter we had used for four years and were nervous about leaving our dogs with someone new, but we feel so blessed to have found Laura and will not hesitate to book with her again.

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.
