My name is Laura and I operate under the business name, Delightful Doggies.
Currently I offer in-home pet sitting services for any pet, and dog walking services. Soon I will be offering dog training, as I am working on certification to be a professional dog trainer. In addition, I am also studying to be a veterinary assistant and am pet first aid/CPR certified. I am also fully insured and bonded. The health, safety and happiness of your furry family members is very important to me!
My rates are very competitive with other sitters and are listed in more detail on my website. I also have a comprehensive FAQ on my website at delightfuldoggies dot com, and under the Contact tab is all the ways you can contact me, as well as connect on sites like Facebook and Twitter, and read customer reviews on Yelp.
Thank you; I look forward to hearing from you!

All my life! I grew up with a border collie/English sheepdog mix and switched to cats for a while in my young adult life. I still have two cats, and have had another dog as well as currently have a dog. I foster dogs through my volunteer for local shelters and I also work with a lot of shelter dogs one-on-one to work on basic obedience and behavioral issues. I also used to work in dog daycare so I have experience managing pack play groups.
I love all dogs! They're all unique and have their own personalities, despite breed traits. I always do a complimentary meet and greet before doing sitting to ensure we know and are comfortable with each other. I pretty much always instantly fall in love! ;)

Yes, simple tasks are included and all my services are customized to meet the client's specific needs.
It depends on the type of visit you request. Overnight stays are generally an approximate 12-hour window (i.e., 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.) so I can fit in whatever they need for morning/evening routines, and we can schedule additional visits should your pets need mid-day visits.
