Dogs Over 1 Year Old
Crate-Trained Dogs Only
I have used Laine to help me watch my Chinchilla and Rabbit and she was really great with making sure that they were well taken care of because it is not easy to look after exotic pets! And also before she watched them, she offered to come over to my place to meet them! I also had an emergency where I had two dogs from out of town that I needed someone to pet sit ...
Laine did an excellent job taking care of my corgi, Phoebe, and my friend's dachshund, Poppy. She was available on very short notice and was very flexible with the times she was able to come and let the dogs out. She sent plenty of text and picture updates on how the dogs were doing throughout the weekend. I would definitely recommend Laine to anyone who needs a dog sitter!
Laine was great! We actually have cats and she took care of both of them over the holidays. She kept us very well informed and made sure we knew the complete status of our little dudes. We were gone for almost two weeks and we came back to two very happy, healthy, well take care of cats! We highly recommend her!

I have been a pet sitter on my own for about seven years. I have worked at a kennel in St. Louis for almost five years and in Columbia for over three years.

What Laine would like to know about your dog
Good things to know about a pet before sitting him or her would be feeding instructions and if they are on any medications, how often they need their medication, etc. I also like to know your dog's general behaviors and any issues they may have, such as separation anxiety or destructive behaviors such as chewing furniture. If you have been training your dog or reward them for certain behaviors, I would like to keep up with your methods while you're away. Essentially, I like to know their detailed daily routine, so I can follow it as closely as possible. My goal is to have your pet so happy, they've forgotten you've left them with a sitter! This is also why I only do in-home overnight sitting; animals tend to do much better in their own homes while their owners are away.
