We found Lara on Rover and are beyond pleased with her services. She is very personable and a pleasure to work with. Lara is able to handle our young crazy dog, Bella, and even helps us train her! She is everything we were looking for in a dog sitter and more! We are very comfortable leaving Bella with Lara. Bella now attends weekly doggy daycare with Lara. We will continue to use her services for ...

Lara was amazing! She was very accommodating, calm and upbeat. My papillon can have a big dog attitude but with Lara’s dog knowledge and her pack of two dogs and one adorable son he quickly fell in line. She kept me updated and sent me many pictures and videos. When he got back home he had really improved in his dog socialization skills and played nicely with my son’s dig. Thank you Lara!

Thank you Faye! Jasper is delightful and it was a pleasure having him as our guest during your trip.

Lara is excellent with dogs. She treats them like her own. She is very attentive to their needs and different behaviors. I would leave my pups, who are my two children, with her anytime. She has expansive experience with dogs and other animals. From training, showing, raising puppies and dog sitting. Hands down the best sitter out there.

What Lara would like to know about your dog

I require all furry guests to be current and up to date on vaccines and flea and tick treatments. I do not accept unuttered male dogs or overly aggressive dogs.

When Lara watches your pet

Here at my home we spend lots of time playing, running and fetching out in the yard. Upon special request we may spend a little time brushing up on obedience training.
Once all my guests have been adequately exercised we tend to go inside and they usually find a place to settle down on the cool floor and nap for a while. Then it’s back outside to play, and so on.
I do not allow fighting, bullying or bossing between my furry guests. However there will be the usual greeting bark during introductions, I don’t allow it to go further than that, I am very careful to maintain an atmosphere of peace and calm.
