About Laura

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**Please know that if you want me to dog sit in your own home, I am fine with any size dog! Just for boarding in my own home size is usually limited to small or medium sized dogs. **Also, prices are "per dog," but I usually offer a discount for multiple 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 was wonderful with our Bulldog Sadee. Very nice and loving family. Sadee enjoyed her time with the kids. I highly recommend Laura and her family for your fur baby's home away from home.
Laura was a awesome. She took very good care of our pug. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a safe and loving place for their dog. Your the best Laura!
We loved Laura and her whole family. We were immediately made to feel welcome. We were kept updated all weeekend. Our dog had so much fun he slept for two days when he came home. Our family will definitely be using Laura again!
