About laura

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi. I am a full time pet sitter and I am 100% dedicated to your fur baby. I don't work other jobs so I am dedicated to your fur baby and I am home or someone is home for your fur baby's attention. I am an experienced pet sitter before DogVacay and I am experienced in providing care to different personality types. I have had dogs all my life and I love taking care of them.

I have rearranged my home to be doggy friendly with laminate wood floors with plenty of doggy beds, blankets and throw carpets for naps. If your pet is never kenneled I don't use a kennel on them. They can sleep anywhere from my living room or if they prefer to sleep in my bed they are more then welcomed to. My policy is to make your furry friend feels like they are at home and spoiled. Your fur baby will be surrounded with toys, treats, healthy treats and lots of love. We take walks, potty breaks, play time and cuddle time. Your pet will be able to play with the other furry friends during the day or play outside various games.
I do also have a locked fenced yard for roaming and sniffing. I supervise the dogs while they are outside.

I am a true doggy lover and have a big heart so all your fur babies will be treated with lots of love and attention.

I also love taking walks.. At night after our walk is so called snack time from peanut butter raw hides, gourmet doggy cookies, homemade treats and other special snacks.

There is usually 24 hour supervision. I am a homebody and I don't like leaving my babies. When I'm there I spend a lot of time just loving them by petting, hugging, walking and play time. Also I have Dale a semiretired accountant who dogs flock to and helps me with the many walks we go on. And there is my teenage son who loves the many furry friends he meets.

I have 1 fur babies a seven year old ten pound poodle named Chloe and just had one fur baby who passed away in late October at the age of 11. Her name was Baby. So my heart has lots of extra love to give. And Chloe loves the company.

Pictures and updates are provided. And if you just want to call to hear a bark or need a picture you can.

If you want your furry family friend to be spoiled and feel like they have a family while your gone. I can do that.

I also can come to your home for potty breaks, food visits while out of town and give them play and love. Also potty breaks and walks during your work week starting at $12.00 around the Maize and 21st area. I also visit kitties.

I do live in a nice neighborhood Chadsworth where there are walking paths around the lakes and safe sidewalks to walk on.

Also I am very flexible with time of pick-up and drop-off. And I do respond to requests as soon as I get them.

Also you can request a meet and greet and visit us or if not possible we can do a meet and greet via telephone for additional information.

There are strict requirements that all shots be up to date(Bordetella, Rabies, DA2PP) and proof is submitted or I can verify with Vet. Also being on a flea prevention program is required. This provides safety to all.

I also only take doggies that are potty trained but I am aware accidents happen. And there are exceptions to puppies in training.And no aggressive dogs. Dogs need to get along with other dogs. And adult dogs have to be spayed or neutered. We provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for your fur baby to have a fun time. I also specialize in older dogs with medication needs, injections and additional help. Puppies are also welcomed.

Thank you for visiting my profile and if you have any questions feel free to chat. Your baby's or babies' happiness is my goal.

Please ask for discount on 2 or more or extended stays.
Rate is based on 24 hour period. Over 24 hours the fee is prorated after 24 hours.
I am very flexible with drop offs and pick ups.
Thanks for visiting our site and we would love to cuddle, play and spoil your baby. We have no other jobs but to take care of your fur family.

Laura is WONDERFUL! Lil Roo had a great time and we had nothing to worry about.. We have already re-booked a new date for Roo to visit!
Laura is great. Our babies were spoiled by her. We were spoiled by her too with updates and pictures.
This was my first time with DogVacay. I was so worried about leaving my 9 month old pup. Laura was absolutely wonderful!! Moose had so much fun and didn't want to come home. She treated him like her own and kept me updated daily with his activities. Moose will go back to Laura and I will have 100%confidence that he is well taken care of.
This was our first time using Dogvacay. We are on a trip to Texas from Minnesota and wanted to visit the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson. Doing a search I found Dogvacay and Laura - a perfect match. Laura was able to accommodate our last minute request and was friendly and welcoming at the door. She gave us three text updates with photos during the day. Our dog is a rescue and we have never left her with anyone before, but Laura, with her caring attitude, did a fantastic job of making her feel right at home. She joined in the activities and had a great time. I highly recommend Laura for any dog.
My 2 one year old mixed breed fur babies stayed for a weekend at Laura's house and had a great time. Laura is obviously a pet lover. I checked in on them and Laura sent pictures and updates several times. We will definitely use Laura for all of our future dog sitting needs. I would recommend Laura to everyone needing a pet sitter.
This was our first time to use DogVacay but I knew I didn't want to kennel Marshall (our dog) either. While there were many options for hosts in our area, my family chose to try Laura. She responded very quickly to our request and I was able to visit her home with my daughter and Marshall prior to his stay. Laura allowed Marshall the freedom to her house and backyard. She was very professional in a relaxed way, asking a lot of questions about Marshall and his personality. After we dropped him off before our trip, Laura sent updates and pictures to reassure us that he was doing ok. If was a very positive first experience and I know that when we have to leave Marshall again, I will not hesitate to use Laura.
Laura was absolutely wonderful to our beagle Lemon! We were out of town for several nights & had constant updates & pictures of how Lemon was doing. Every pict. taken of Lemon showed how happy she was. Lemon absolutely adores Laura! This was Lemon's 2nd stay w/ Laura & she came home w/ us happy & w/ a treat bag of snacks that she loves. We will take Lemon to Laura every time we need to be out of town now & highly recommend her when you need a dog sitter.
Dog vacay is a lifesaver for us! You can't buy peace of mind but this is as close as you can get! Laura has taken such good care of Ellie! She spends a lot of time with the dogs in her care and they are safe and happy! Highly recommend her and we will be using her again!
Very nice, reliable and dependable. All i could ask for.
Great stay for our Lab. Thanks
Our dogs love their stay with Laura. She was so great, and really cared about our dogs. She updated us with daily photos, and we never had to worry about them. I would highly recommend her!
Laura was great! We were a little nervous as we did not want to leave our sweet Ellie at a vet or boarding facility, so this was the perfect alternative! She was able to be in a home environment and Laura gave her lots of love, cuddles and playtime. Laura made the process so easy and addressed every detail of our Ellie's daily routine, likes and dislikes. We will definitely be using her again when we go out of town!
Diamond had another great weekend with Laura. He was so happy while we were gone and he was taken care of amazingly. Laura is great and this!!
Laura was amazing!! Not only did she work with my schedule, she took such great care of my little girl! My dog is pretty shy at first but warmed up to her and enjoyed every minute of it. I do very much appreciated the messages and pictures letting me know how she was doing. Whenever I have to go out of town I know I can trust her with Riley!
I was very apprehensive about leaving my "little girl" for a week. She is my life. However, when we met Laura for the first time, I knew right away Selena was going to be in good hands. While away, I received daily updates and pictures of Selena having a blast with her new found friends. Selena was treated as though she was Laura's own pet. With each update I felt less anxious and knew I had found the right sitter. When I picked Selena up, Laura had given me some pictures she had taken of Selena and her friends and also gave me a gift bag for her. When I need to leave again I will definitely go back to Laura. She is wonderful and I highly recommend her.
Laura was great with my dog and my daughter's dog while we were on a family vacation. They can be quite a handful, but she kept up with them and did it with a smile. Laura not only sent us photos while we were gone but gave us copies afterwards. She always goes above and beyond to give us information and peace of mind while our dogs are in her care. Thank you, Laura!
Laura was AWESOME to our beagle Lemon! We received several texts & pict.'s about how Lemon was doing & she had a smile on her face. When we picked her up Laura sent a goody bag of treats w/ Lemon & she keeps begging us for more! We will definitely bring Lemon again to Laura & NEVER kennel her at the vet again! This is the first time EVER that Lemon has come home w/ a smile on her face after we have been on vacation & was a happy dog. Our family HIGHLY recommends Laura to take care of your dog while you are away!
Laura is very responsive and provides text messages and picture updates, which I love. She sends customers home with a goody bag and I know the dogs are loved and cared for at her home. This is the second time I have used Laura and I would highly recommend her. She gives dog owners a sense of security and relief in knowing your dogs are safe, happy, and taken care of.
Thank you!! We are beyond please with your care of Sasha and being so good to her!!! We will definitely use you in the future when we go out of town!!! We loved the pics and videos you shared with us, it made it very clear how much fun Sasha was truly having!! And by the time we got her home, we could tell she played hard and had a good time because she was worn out!
PS: Thank you for the raw hide bone, it's now her favorite thing to chew on these days!!
You could not ask for a better place for your dog! I received daily pictures and updates. I know my dog was cared for while I had to be out of town. Highly recommended!!!
Lucky really enjoyed staying w Laura. She was a wonderful sitter. I appreciated the pictures and updates that she posted. The stay helped Lucky w her social skills since she is not around other dogs much. I think Laura enjoyed spoiling her as well. She even sent Lucky home w a bag of treats & a new Kong toy!
Thank you Laura. Will will not hesitate to request you again.
Laura was a great host to our baby Diamond! She treated him like he was part of her family. Diamond needed some special attention due to diabetes and all those were taken care of as well. He also left with a bag of treats to go home with. We are very pleased and do plan to take Diamond to Laura again.
Laura was great! She sent pictures everyday and sent my dog home with a goody bag!! Max absolutely loved spending the week with her and keeps asking me when he can go back!! ;)
An excellent experience.
Laura is very welcoming to new dogs. We are fostering a dog and she had a great time at Laura's house. We appreciate her enthusiasm for all the dogs she cares for and her tolerance of their individual needs and different personalities.
I chose to try Dog Vacay because I didn't like the kennel experience - seemed too impersonal and it was hard to leave my older dogs in that environment. Laura set my mind at ease. She asked lots of questions about how best to take care of them and just loved on them all weekend. She sent lots of pictures so I knew they were fine when I was gone. She's very flexible and easy to work with. Booking second visit with her tonight!
Laura J. was just a wonderful person and her own doggies welcomed Suzie with all the expected doggie greetings. The "meet and greet" with your sitter is the most important part of the process, where you meet the sitter and your dog meets any other "sitters" and becomes comfortable with the new surroundings and smells. Laura walked us through the area and facilities and showed us her back yard--excellent fencing and security. Laura was agreeable to our request to pick up Suzie in the morning (even though it was a long trip across town, and I made sure she was comfortable with the amount to be paid--after all, she was helping us and providing something a little extra. In Toto (no pun intended!) it was a great experience for Suzie and for us. I highly recommend Laura and Dogvacay to everyone visiting Wichita.
Laura is great with our WestI.e. She loves spending time with this great family. Thanks Laura for a great experience
Our dog really enjoyed the family setting and hanging out with other dogs. Laura sent us pictures while we were on our trip. I was able to text Laura at any time and we coordinated our drop off and pick up events. This was the first time not taking the dog to a kennel and I could tell he was not stressed when we picked him up. I would definitely recommend Laura for pup sitting!
Our puppy, Leo, was well-loved while we were gone for vacation! He got lots of hugs and playtime and walks. Laura was great about sending pictures and text updates so that we knew how he was doing, which really put our minds at ease. He got along great with her dogs and we never felt worried about him! It was so nice knowing he was in good hands and getting lots of attention. I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone looking for a great sitter for your dog!!
Our dog, Jackson, spent the night with Laura and her two dogs and had such a good time! Jackson got plenty of exercise, treats and best of!! He will be spending time with Laura again this summer and he is really looking forward to his next vacay!!
I had my doubts about using this service, but Laura was ABSOLUTELY amazing. She arranged a meet and greet before my vacation so I could see where my girls were staying and meet Laura. While I was gone I got two photos a day, she bathed them, clipped my nervous girl's nails, and then gave them a goodie bag full of treats and a toy when I came to pick them up! I was actually surprised they acted like they had missed me at all!! So glad I tried this service and now I don't have to worry about who will watch my babies when I need to leave town! That means more vacations for me! Thanks Laura!!!
Laura was great with Maxine my poodle mix. She sent her home with new toys! I had daily updates and photos of Max I know my dog misses Laura as she was so attentive towards her. Its obvious that Laura is a true dog lover.
We extended our vacation and Laura was great working with our schedule. It is comforting to know your dogs are being cared for and loved when you are out of town. Thank you Laura! P.S. the dogs love the goodie bag you sent home with them.
Laura was awesome! She sent us daily updates and pictures of our dogs. She provides lots of activities and interacts with the dogs. Laura loves animals and they love her! We highly recommend Laura.
Laura always does a wonderful job with our WestI.e. Molly is always so happy and content when we pick her up and has had a great time. Laura was kind enough to give her a new toy and she absolutely loves it. Thanks again Laura, another awesome Vacay experience.
Laura was an excellent host to my dog. She could tell how worried I was about leaving him for a week. She kept me updated everyday with pictures and info about how he was doing. I was really impressed with her as a host. You can tell she really loves dogs and loves spending time with them!! I will absolutely ask her to watch Boo the next time we go on a trip!!!
My fur babies love Ms. Laura! She watched both of them for a week and had a great time! They were both so tired when we picked them up... between the play dates with other pooches and the walks - they were tuckered out! Couldn't ask for a better home replacement for our dogs! We will be reserving again!
Unfortunately I haven't used Laura yet due to a cancellation on my part, but I will say that she is flexible and willing to work with your schedule. We did have a meet and greet with my babies and she is wonderful around I will definitely being using her in the future.
We had a last minute emergency and were impressed with how quickly our host contacted us to make arrangements. She communicated how our dog was doing throughout his stay and sent pictures. We will use her again. We're very impressed with her care given our dos.
Thanks again, Laura. Max is sure a happy boy when gets to visit you. We'll see you again soon! Kendall
She went above and beyond. Really loves dogs ad it shows!
Laura was great! We were in a bind, she contacted me quickly, we had a meet and greet, and she watched our dog the next day. She took great care of him and gave him lots of affection. She had lots of toys, dog beds and a backyard for him to play in. We will continue to take him there. Thanks Laura!
Laura was very accommodating when I had to schedule a last minute funeral trip. Got her up very early and she was so nice. She spoils Shiloh.
Laura did a phenomenal job! I was able to go on vacation and get daily updates about Deuce w/out worrying one bit! She kept him busy, took him on walks and let him snuggle w/ the family so he didn't feel left out! She even gave him a new toy and treat bag when I picked him up. Definitely will use Laura every time!!! :)
Laura had a great sparkling personality so I felt comfortable leaving Honey with her. I was in a rush and forgot to brIng Honeys toys Laura had plenty for her to play fetch. She sent me pictures of honey fetching. I really appreciate that because it was cold out.

Also her poodle was affectionate.

I plan on using her this summer.

thank you. I love this concept of freedom and family.
Max had a great stay and looks forward to another stay. Laura is great with him and even included a take home bag of treats! Great communication and very flexible. Thanks for a great time, Laura!
Laura was a great host to our Westie Molly. We will definitely book again and we appreciate all her kindness and love towards our fur baby! She & her Family we were awesome with Molly.
This is the second time I brought my dog in to Laura.My dog Lily wagged her tail when she saw her house and ran right upto the door. She sent pictures and updated me on her status. Laura had plenty of treats and bones for her so I didn't have to worry about packing all her things becuase this was a last minute trip. I will be using Laura again. She is responsible and loves animals.
Laura did an excellent job with communication and Sabaaka was not sure about leaving! That is a good sign.
Laura was great to deal with. I felt my dog was well taken care of by her. I could tell that she cared for my dog "Lillie" because she had a hard time leaving. Her house seemed to be set up to take care of several dogs at a time. I would highly recommend her services to any one.
