About Laura

I am a 2014 graduate of Texas A&M University. I majored in Animal Science with a minor in Business Administration. I work five minutes home from 8AM-4PM during the week however, I enjoy pet sitting and dog walking around my schedule. I am more than willing to accommodate visits before and after work. I am usually completely available on the weekends. I have extensive experience with dogs and cats from my previous jobs as a kennel technician. I was involved in clubs at A&M such as an animal rescue group and a service dog organization. I am currently a volunteer with Austin Animal Center and enjoy taking part in various local animal related fundraisers. If you have any questions about my background feel free to contact me!

Aside from dog sitting/walking for an additional fee, I can also provide basic command training, potty training, dog bathing, and pick up/drop off
(from vet,daycare,etc).

Laura was wonderful! My dogs loved her and I felt at ease with her taking care of them. I will definitely use her again!
Laura is extremely reliable, responsive, kind, and helpful! She's great with my big lab and it gives me such peace of mind to know that she's walking Livy when I'm working late. Livy can be tough - she's big and pulls hard when she sees squirrels and cats. But Laura handles it like a pro!

Maddie loved Laura, and we loved all the updates! Would for sure book with her again! We are so happy we found Laura!
What more can I say that I haven't already said, in previous reviews. Laura B. goes above and beyond the call of duty with Malachi.
She has been Malachi's sitter for over 6 mos. She has a great relationship with him - it may the homemade treats she brings. She definitely has a unique way making him listen. From the short video to pics, its comforting to know Malachi is in great hands / care.

Laura was absolutely great with Gizmo! She is flexible with walking times/days and sent me picture and video updates, which I appreciated while thousands of miles away. Laura also took Gizmo out on a nice afternoon walk with some other dogs (after checking with me, of course) and gave them all an opportunity to play -- he may have had more fun with Laura than he has with me :). Laura has a very gentle nature with Gizmo and I feel very comfortable leaving him in her care. I will definitely be booking with Laura in the future and highly recommend.

Laura was great and extremely flexible with making daycare work for us. Teddy had a great time!
Laura is great! There has been an improvement on leash and in keeping focused during walks. We can finally feel at ease when we leave town. With the daily updates, we can enjoy our time away without concerns about Malachi.
This was a repeat reservation. Laura is pawsome! The number of updates was lesser than previous reservations. Laura sends videos, as an update, which is comforting.
I had Laura watch Maggie, my 2yr old labradoodle while I was gone for the long weekend and she did great! Even with the bad weather, she made sure to give Maggie ample time to play/walk outside and texted me photo updates throughout the weekend. Stop overpaying for your dog to be locked up in a kennel like a prisoner and give Laura a try!

Laura will continue to be my go-to for whenever I am in need of a dog sitter. Thanks again!

I cannot recommend Laura enough! She was so sweet and accommodating and our pets just loved her!!! She went out of her way to keep us updated daily and sent pics too- I hate leaving them when I travel but I am SO glad to have someone like Laura to count on!

Laura is great! Our dog is skittish and doesn't always warm up to new people quickly, but he quickly became best friends with Laura, who has great dog mojo.

In addition, Laura is very easy to work with... scheduling was easy and she always kept us posted with texts and pictures while we were gone.

We will definitely call on Laura and Dogvacay the next time we head out of town.

Awesome. Amazing. Adorable. She is has a contagious excitement when our pet sees her, super organized and precise, and is nothing but reliable. She texts and create videos every day and gives quality time.
Laura is absolutely the best! From the Meet and Greet through hosting dates. She really went above and beyond with photos and videos! Not only did she feed Malachi exactly according to our instructions, but she also cleaned up after him impeccably. She spent playing time and showing him love so that he wouldn't feel lonely. Laura really shows that she cares! Now, she will be the first person I contact! Hire her today! You will not be disappointed!
