About Laura

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I will take care of your pet while you are away!! I love animals and have dogs of my own. I can care for some dogs in my home or I can go to your home to feed, walk or take them to the dog park (if you would like that). I allow the dogs to have free access of the house and have a large, fenced in yard. Dogs will be given a walk and will sleep in-doors at night.

I am a responsible woman that has been involved in dog rescue for many years and have had pets for a long time.

I also care for farm animals.

Laura is the perfect person for my Theo! Yea!!
as always, a great time for Kelly
Laura was very accommodating and worked to make sure our pup Olive would adjust to her new surroundings before Laura had to leave later in the day.
Olive was a bit put off by the number of dogs and the noise level. Just when we arrived one dog was picking a fight with the neighbors dog leading to some extra anxiety for Olive.

It's apparent our Jax had a wonderful time at Laura's. He slept the whole night and didn't move after we picked him up. She has a great yard for dogs; ramps, toys, lots of shade, and easy access inside and out. I LOVED that she took Jax to the Auburn dog park. Will definitely book again!

Laura met with us and the dogs initially, before we agreed on the job, which allowed us to feel more cofident that Laura would take care of our dogs in a reliable, responsible, and loving manner.
Laura i marvelous!! Our dog loves visiting her and running with Laura's pack.
We feel so lucky to be able to drop our big Labrador retriever off with Laura. He loves her and enjoys staying with her. He gets to go for drives, go to the dog park, and play with other dog guests. She handles all types of dogs with ease and her house is cleaner than mine! She seems to be available whenever we need her service. We do lots of 3 and 4 day trips. I highly recommend her.

Kelly is very content with Laura. The area is clean, airy, with room to run and play. When we pick up our dog, she is happy to see us, but also sad to leave Laura. We will use her whenever we need a dog sitter.
everything went wonderfully.We have reserved again for this year.
Laura is the BEST dog sitter I've used! She has a great dog yard. She liked my dogs too.
Easy and easy going -- recommended.
Had a great first stay with Laura. Our standard poodle, Luna, just wrapped up our first visit and all was well. Laura was welcoming and has a great place for entertaining doggies!
I was very concerned about leaving my Harley with someone I didn't know. but Laura made me feel very welcomed and assured me he was in good hands. A beautiful home in a very beautiful country setting. Harley was very well taken care of and would highly recommend Laura. She obviously loves dogs and her own Keeshonds are a complete delight. I couldn't stop petting them. She was also very accommodating with my late arrival time and my unsure pick up time due to rafting the American River.

Excellent as always
Laura was very accommodating with our last minute request, but we won't be returning for the following reasons:

- She didn't send any photos or updates throughout the stay as our previous hosts have.

- There seemed to be many other dogs at the property; three that we met and others that we could hear. The three in the front seemed very protective. Hilde is big and friendly but if she were smaller or more timid this definitely wouldn't have worked for us.

- At some point during Hilde's stay she was left alone long enough to break into an enclosure and kill a pet chicken. While we feel terrible that this happened, had we known she would be left alone outside for long stretches of time we would have chosen another sitter.

Laura seems like a nice person but if I'm going to pay $40 a night I want to feel like my dog is a priority – here she seemed more of an afterthought.

awesome as usual .........
excellent as always
As always, excellent!
Laura was a marvelous care giver for our dog, Kelly. Kelly returned to us happy and full of energy.
Laura seemed to be very caring for animals. She took Sierra (our 1 year old chocolate lab puppy) to the dog park 2 days while we were away. Unfortunately, we were not happy with Sierra's stay..
Laura has 4 dogs at her home who are very territoral of their property. They bark like crazy when people drive up and when a new dog is around. One of the dogs tried to bite Sierra when we first arrived. We figured the dogs would settle down and be nicer to Sierra, so we agreed to schedule the reservation. Unfortunately, it seems like the dogs never got along with our puppy. Sierra had a patch of fur missing from her foot when we picked her up, which looks like a dog bit her foot. She constantly licked her wound for about a week after the stay. Laura said that her dogs barked at Sierra at night when she tried to lay on the floor next to the bed. Also, I called Laura the second night we were away to check on Sierra and see how it was going. She didn't answer so I left a voicemail. She never called back. Laura was a nice lady but overall I was disappointed with the situation.

Laura was just great! Theo clearly had a fabulous time and is ready to go back again! Great outdoor area for him to play in with lots of new smells to explore. We will definitely be back!
While we were on vacation, Laura made sure that our Patches was on vacation too. Daily trips to the dog park was one of the extras she provided. Laura is the best!
Our family dog Christy was in excellent, safe and caring hands with Laura. She is a knowledgeable, friendly and loving dog lady. Her home is clean, she is organized, and her dog family is gentle and welcoming. A country peacefulness, inside comfort for our dog, and fenced yard is everything we could ever want for our Christy. We will look forward to Laura hosting Christy again. We recommend this stay. Many thanks to Laura and dogvacay!
