About Laura

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I'm Laura, and I'm here to offer house and pet sitting while you're gone for a day, a weekend, or an extended vacation. I currently only offer my services for coming to your home to see your dog, and stay overnight in your house. No daycare or boarding at my place.

Just so you are aware, I am moving to Santa Rosa on December 10th. So my services will not be as available in the current area after I move. Up until then I am still willing to do dog sitting and walking in the area, I just want to be upfront with the situation.

I grew up with two boxers of my own, and I have dog sat for friends and family for years. I've had experience with large and small dogs, and am currently fostering dogs with my parents (which is why my home is unavailable for daycare).

I watched a medium sized dog after back surgery so I have experience with rehab and giving dogs medication. All I need are some written instructions to make sure your dog gets everything they need.
I also have experience with older dogs, and can help keep them in their routine and comfortable, and keep an extra close eye on them so that you know everything is taken care of while you're gone.

With me your dog will get a timely breakfast and a morning walk followed by snuggles and playtime at home. They will get up to two more walks a day (a total of 3) depending on size, energy level, and your preference. I will follow your feeding schedule and as much of your routine as possible so that even though you're not home, your dog can enjoy their day as usual.

I don't currently have another job as I just graduated from Sonoma State with my Bachelors degree. I work part time up at Sonoma State over the summer, but those dates will be known, and worked around so that I can be home the maximum amount of time to keep a close eye on your pet. Any times that I might have to be gone will be discussed to make sure your pet is getting the care and attention that you are comfortable with.

Oct 2016
Laura was incredibly friendly and easy to work/communicate with. She arrived daily at the appointed times, and took excellent care of our cat Max. She also texted me after each visit to update me on Max's condition and reassure me that everything was going well. I would highly recommend hiring her, and will do so myself when we plan to be out of town again.

I have had Laura Henry take care of my puggle beau for 4 years and she has shown amazing maturity and ability. 4 years ago she started when I went to Europe. Beau had just had back surgery and needed a lot of care,including physical therapy. She took great care of him and kept me updated on how he was doing throughout my vacation. Beau loves her and so do I. I use her when I go out of town on vacations every year since.

I would highly recommend her for this job.

If you have any questions ,please call me at 650-455-1454.

Laura took great care of both of our dogs and also our house when she came to stay for five days while we were gone on a trip . After our original meeting with her, both of our dogs were so happy to see her when she came back. We felt really good about leaving them in her hands while we were gone. We would definitely love to have her back again
