About Laurel

I have lots of experience with animals, and while I can't adopt any of my own right now, I miss having them in my life! I would treat yours like family.

I grew up helping to take care of my family's two dogs and two cats. This included walking, feeding, bathing, and giving medicine, as well as administering insulin shots to a diabetic kitty. During college I worked as an au pair for three years; my responsibilities included walking the two family dogs a few times a week and occasionally taking them to the vet. Later, for three years straight I had the good fortune of living with roommates who had dogs, whom I would walk and feed if their owners were out of town. I've also cat- and dog-sat for a number of friends and family members sporadically over the years.

I live at the borderline between Columbia Heights and Mt. Pleasant, a short walk from Rock Creek Park and a few dog parks. I would definitely walk the dogs in the Park at least once a day, and for the other walks would probably let them stretch their legs in other parts of the neighborhood. While not out walking, I would stay at my apartment with them as much as possible to keep them company.

Laurel was fantastic! Our beloved dog is a bit of wierdo and can be neurotic. Laurel was great with him and took his idiosyncrasies with a grain of salt. She sent up lots of text updates and photos. This was my first time leaving him with someone other than friends or family and Laurel's calm demeanor soothed us. Bongo was in great hands! I can't recommend her enough!
Laurel, was great with Finn. He is an older dog and she made sure that he was comfortable and happy-especially during some very hot August days. Would definitely recommend.
I highly recommend using Laurel as a sitter. She is kind, conscientious, and reliable. My dog was with Laurel for over a week and nearly every day she provided me with a photo and update by text. Also, each time I texted her, she responded quickly. The pick-up and drop-off was also very convenient. Laurel is a great host and sitter, and she will treat your dog with much love and care.
