About Laura

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Laura. I am married, have two boys and I've recently retired. My family and I are fortunate enough to live in the Saratoga/Los Gatos area.

I owned 2 beautiful AKC Dobermans who loved this property. Unfortunately, they don't live forever; and both have passed. I miss my beautiful companions & would be delighted to provide your family pet with the attention they deserve.

My boys adore cats & dogs, and we have two very lovely independent cats: "Spookey" and "Mittens". Both live outdoors, and love our nice cool basement.

Your pet will have plenty of indoor and outdoor space to eat, play, and be safe.

I was very particular about my Dobies and found that a well-cared for pet is loyal, secure and makes a wonderful companion. I am home all day and able to provide your companion with full time care.

Please feel free to call me, and we can discuss your pet and their individual needs. You are also welcome to come by to see if you are comfortable with our home.
Looking forward to speaking with you!

Conrad had a great time, thanks!
our dog had a wonderful time and was exhausted from his overnight. We felt confident with the host and would use her again!
Laura was fantastic with my two boxers. We recently moved to a new house and they were not yet fully adjusted to the change. Plus, even under the best of circumstances, they sometimes get anxious in a new environment. I needn't have been concerned though. Laura was amazing with them. Both of them were happy and relaxed when I picked them up after a day with Laura.

Laura was great to work with. My dog pretty clearly had a great time at her home. She sent a pic of him by the pool that made me smile while I was on vacation. Such a relief to know that my dog was in good hands and having a great time while I was away.

Laura and her family were great with our ailing Corgi. He was dealing with significant medical issues and she handled him with care and appropriate attention.
It was such a gift knowing our two Labs were in Laura's care yesterday while we had an all-day event to attend. Thank you, Laura! The pups came home happily exhausted!
It has been a pleasure using Laura as a care-provider for our two 2-year-old labs, Bochy and Posey. Our dogs are high energy, and they come home relaxed and ready to nap after spending the day at Laura's beautiful home. Laura has been extremely helpful fitting us into her schedule on short-notice, and I have complete trust in her!

Laura is awesome! One of my 2 Westies, (Jack) has separation anxiety, especially lately after a recent move. When we picked them up at Laura's, he was calm and happy! Such a relief. Laura took great care of them.
Laura and her family were wonderful with Maggie! I felt so comfortable leaving Maggie behind, as I knew she was being well cared for. When I picked her up, I think she was sad to leave. I will definitely be leaving Maggie with Laura again.

Laura & family (and DogVacay) made this vacation possible for us. It was our first time away from Buddy for this long, and Laura eased away all our anxiety by taking excellent care of him. Recommend her very highly!

P.S.: Please try and take some higher resolution pictures. I mention this because the pics were so very cute (Buddy with all his new friends and your family) that I am bummed that they are so low res :(

Laura was great and her home was perfect for my active dog. Wrigley had a great time and will definitely use her again!!
Laura did a awesome job taking care of our buddy Pixel. i would recommend Laura anytime. Pixel is very attached to our family and i know he got all the attention he was used to from Laura and her Family.
Laura and her family took wonderful care of our dear Chip! He really wasn't that excited to see us; we think he just loved being at their beautiful and enjoyed the yard. Chip is looking forward to his next visit in May. Gene & Pam
Laura is exceptional with animals. She exemplifies knowledge and professionalism in her caring for pets. My dog had the best time there! I knew he was well cared for.
Laura's very special. She cares so much for the animals that when our dog Lucy howled at night during her stay, Laura actually slept on the couch beside her to comfort her. I can't recommend her highly enough.
Laura's property is beautiful with lots of room to roam. Giz, our Akita, seemed really happy there. Each day Laura texted me pics of him on walks and hanging out with her teenage sons. My biggest fear was that Giz wouldn't want to come home after getting the royal treatment at Laura's house!

Laura is wonderful! We are very pleased with the care provided to our dog while we were away. She sent pictures throughout with brief explanations of what they'd done that day. She provided plenty of activities for our very active dog. She is extremely responsive and definitely understands how to care for animals. We can now rest easy when we go away, knowing our best friend is in great hands!

Laura was great! She was very accommodating to our schedule and didn't mind us picking up our pooch late at night after the wedding we attended. Our dog Dozer was happy, safe, and we could tell he had a great time with Laura and her family. Highly recommended!

Deacon loves Laura and her sweet family! Naturally, we were a little nervous leaving our little boy for the first time at 4 months, but we knew he was in loving and capable hands. Laura's beautiful home and yard are a dog's dream. Trips without the pup are a lot less stressful now that we have Laura! :)

Our puppy, Jesse stayed with Laura for the weekend, her first overnight away from us. We picked her up, happy and healthy. What a relief to find a host we feel great about. I would not hesitate to use Laura in the future.
Our 8 month old Chesapeake puppy had a great time with Laura. Laura is attentive and truly interested in each dog. This is a luxury vacay for sure!
From the first minute of our meet and greet it was clear that our dog loved Laura. He also seemed to really enjoy running around the wonderful yard. We were at ease when we were away and came home to a happy dog.
