About Laura

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**2016 Holiday bookings: Yes, I have space(s) for one more dog after December 21....drop offs on most weekdays need to be after 7 pm or before 7 am....the weekend of December 10-11 is good for meet and greets...**
The neighborhood has grassy sidewalks and it's a short drive to the dog park. I love meeting all kinds of pooches.
I'm a working professional with Mondays off so long weekends are perfect. I work Tues-Fri (gone 7 am - 7 pm) so a dog needing a midday walk those days won't work, holidays excepted.
Easy access from I-210. Easy street parking for drop-offs. Quiet twelve unit complex.
Dogs needing exercise: fairly often I drive to a 3/4 acre fenced property. Dogs can explore the grounds outdoors or relax inside....
I check messages every few hours, not every few minutes.... To start, click "Make Reservation" on my profile.

I've used Laura twice now and she's been absolutely great with Zero! He comes back tired but one happy dog. She is extremely responsive to communication and was great during the initial meet and greet and asked the type of questions that made me feel comfortable trusting Zero with her.

Great with our three month old puppy! Our puppy is a handful but he seemed very happy to be with her.
Laura was great. We had an overall good experience.
Laura did a great job of caring for our sometimes stubborn and occasionally aggressive french bulldog. She adapted when our doggy wouldn't play nice with other dogs, and was good about communicating her concerns and solutions. We would definitely recommend her as a caretaker.

Another wonderful stay with Laura. Thanks so much for taking great care of our pup!
Laura was able to watch Slim Shady at the last minute which was a great help. When we came to pick him up he was as happy and healthy as when we dropped him off. He had a great stay and Laura was kind enough to send photos of his "adventures" while with his new friend. We will be sure to have Laura watch our pets again, she did a wonderful job!

Laura took great care of Skyler! We loved the great pics that kept us updated while we were away.
We got some photos of of our pup having a good time while she was away, which was great to see. No issues during her stay, and would definitely use Laura again.
Laura was a very nice lady and we felt very confident leaving our two dachshunds with her. She had them for three days. We loved how confident she was when we dropped our dogs off.

There were some issues during the stay that we did not enjoy. Our dogs escaped her yard and we only found out about it because someone else found them and called the number on their tags. Laura was able to retrieve them and return them to us on time and just fine. We would have preferred to hear from her a little more during the dog's stay.

Laura does a great job with Carly! She's very tuned in to her needs and behaviors and seems to thoroughly enjoy Carly! It's great peace of mind when we travel. I would highly recommend Laura.
Laura was fantastic. Lucky had a great time and seemed a bit sad to come home. Thank you Laura for giving my boy such a great weekend !
This was our first time boarding our rescued dog Rosie, and it couldn't have been easier! Laura was caring and practical, sent a cute photo over the weekend, and made us feel like our dog was in good hands. I think Laura would be a perfect caregiver for any dog overwhelmed by a big, busy kennel. Her quiet home and TLC are perfect for sensitive pets.

We are really glad we found Laura! This is the first time we've come home from a trip and our little dog was calm, happy and didn't seem shell-shocked (previous stays at a dog "resort" with lots of other dogs and constant noise left him befuddled and overtired). Laura's home is a great fit for dogs who need a peaceful home-like atmosphere. She was responsible and caring, and sent us a photo of him every couple of days while we were gone. We will be sure to bring our dog to her again when we need to travel without him. Thanks, Laura!

To start, I searched various boarding sites, long story short, Laura won us over with her attention to the details given concerning our little pug mix, he came back to us with the same happy attitude. Laura keeps a very clean environment and communicated with us with pictures and text. We hope laura is available the next time we are in need of boarding, thank you.

Barry and Lucy stayed with Laura over the Thanksgiving weekend holiday. She was very kind and allowed them to be dropped off late Thanksgiving evening since I had an early flight the next morning. This was also a semi last minute booking. Laura has a very calming energy, so I was a little nervous at first since Barry and Lucy are easily excitable. But after our meet & greet, I saw that they might have tuned into her calmness because they were on their best behavior! When I picked them up after their "Vacay", Laura said she had a great time with them and was surprised at how well behaved they were (such a relief!). I always judge how good of a time my dogs had at their sitters by seeing how long it takes them to knock out in the car on the way home. After picking them up from Laura's, they didn't even make it to the freeway :)

Laura was great and our dog had a nice time. We would definitely recommend and we'll use her again in the future. Thanks!
No problems
Laura was awesome and willing to take on my big boy on fairly short notice. She was kind and considerate and i thought she did a GREAT job with my dog. I would recommend her highly.
Laura was great!! She took amazing care of my 40 Lb pup. She got to hang inside with Laura and take walks. She seemed happy to have her own little vacay that weekend!
