About Laura

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

Thanks for considering boarding your dog(s) in my home.

I have been around animals my whole life because my dad is a Veterinarian! This also means I get 24-7 free on-call vet advice! ;) I have extensive experience caring for all breeds and ages. I worked at the Woodland Animal Hospital for many years and have taken my own dogs through obedience classes. I have worked with animals who suffer from separation anxiety and trauma and I am confident that I can handle any special behavior needs your pet comes with. I will do my best to make your pet feel as comfortable as possible during their stay.

Currently, I am a teacher and I work close to home. I walk the dogs before work in the morning, after work and again in the evening! Exercise is the cornerstone of my dog sitting business. I believe it is very important to keep your dog happy & healthy through mentally/ physically stimulating walks. I have two dogs who are spoiled rotten and enjoy the company of other dogs. We love to take family strolls in the neighborhood or at a park. They also enjoy visiting the doggy beach at Fort DeSoto and maybe your dog would like to visit the beach as well! If your dog is more of a homebody I am perfectly fine with cuddling on the couch and watching movies all day with some good belly rubs or throwing a ball in the backyard.

Thanks for considering boarding your pets with me, I hope my home can be your dog's HOME AWAY FROM HOME! :)

Cooper seemed to have a great time at Laura's. He loved his other 4 legged pals to run around with. I was in NY at the time so I really appreciated the adorable pics she sent me!!!! Thank you Laura!
I have never left my Basenji/Shepard mix Pancakes with anyone, until we met Laura! She took such great care of my little boy and I am so grateful she was able to look after him even during the busy 4th of July weekend. He was a little nervous when I left but Laura was able to calm his separation anxiety. She played with him, snuggled, jogged with him and sent several pictures and videos along the way! There is now no one I trust more to watch Pancakes when I go out of town than Laura :) Thank you so much for everything!!!

I could not have been happier with my dog's vacay! I received photos the entire time I was gone. He was happy and hardly seemed that he wanted to come home with me. I would highly recommend Laura as your pups sitter. She was professional and kept me up to date the entire time! I wouldn't recommend anyone else!
