About LAURA

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Professional, courteous and lovable towards my clients (humans are ok).

I don't only take pride in pet sitting, but I also LOVE it! My specialty is taking care of your family member in the comfort of their own home. I specialize in taking care of both large and small breeds. A normal day with me begins with breakfast served in bed, at your desired time, and followed by a walk. This is important, because your furry pal and I use this time to bond and work on trust. Other bonding opportunities include, playing in your yard or in the living room, practicing tricks and being rewarded with treats. These are also great opportunities to take selfies and let you know what were up to... he he he! If the day is not too busy, we may even go for a hike (with parent permission)! I'm open to suggestions and also willing to accommodate your pal's needs.

I love to create a peace of mind while your away on vacation or business trip. If this is your first time leaving your love one with a stranger, I can understand that you may be worried or experience some anxiety. Well, worry no more! Here are some pointers on what to expect on our first meet up, by the way, this is free of charge! The first meet up is the most important part of getting to know your pal. We use this time to discuss all of his/her needs as well as most enjoyed activities. This is where your furry family member greets me with a smell or a lick which is pretty awesome! From here we can even go for a walk, which is a great opportunity for everyone to bond and work on trust. During our walk, we also use this opportunity to discuss manners or troubled areas. Once the walk is over we can discuss what to expect while your away and the needs of your pal inside your home. To ease your separation you will constantly receive text, pics or emails from us on our status.

I also offer different services like 30 or 60 minute visits to help you walk or play with your friend. This option can be found under the services and rates tab..

When your family member is with me be sure there will be a ton of play time and most importantly at ton of love:) Please fee free to reach out to me with any questions!

After a not so great experience with my first Dog Vacay host, Laura was a breath of fresh air! She was very inquisitive during out meet and greet and showed that she really cared. She sent updates and pictures as well making me feel more at ease. I will definitely be asking her to puppy sit again!

This is the second time Laura has taken care of our Senior dogs for us. They really love her and get so excited when she comes over. I'm so glad that we found her. We feel so comfortable going on vacation knowing that she will be taking care of Huan and Canita.

Laura was a great sitter! She sent us updates often and took our dogs on lots of walks. We didn't have enough treats and food in the house so she even went and picked up some more treats and food. We felt really comfortable on our long trip knowing she was taking care of our dogs.

Laura was wonderful! It is obvious she loves dogs and cares for them as if they are her own. She watched our two boys for two nights in our home and we couldn't have found a better fit! She is caring, professional and reliable. Laura emailed us with pictures and updates daily which helped decrease our worry about having to leave them. Overall it was a great experience, and there's nothing better than coming home to happy pups!

Laura was an amazing dog sitter. She stayed at our house for a whole week and made Milo and Sophie feel so at ease. We were constantly informed of their well-being via text message, pictures, and videos. She took great care of our home, as well, watering the plants, and keeping it clean. I almost don't want to leave such an amazing review for her because I don't want anyone to scoop her up from us the next time we need her. Thank you so much, Laura, from all of us, especially Milo & Sophie.
