For several years, Lara worked at an educational non-profit, Florida High Schools Model United Nations, Inc, I ran. Throughout her years of service to middle and high school students, I saw firsthand Lara's hard working spirit, honesty, work ethic, and ability to do any job she commits herself to.

Completely in puppy love

Lara, dog lover, pun enthusiast, and student.
I provide in-home pet sitting and dog walking services to Bayou Oaks, Indian Beach/Sapphire Shores, Downtown Sarasota, and Hudson Bayou.

Also willing and able to take care of cats, bunnies, guinea pigs, snakes, lizards and other kinds of pets!

With an active, eco-friendly mindset (I ride my bike everywhere) and experience with dogs both small and large and of all ages, I hope to provide quality care ...

What Lara would like to know about your dog

All dogs are unique in their personality and needs. What makes them most comfortable? What treats do they like? Do they have any allergies?
In addition to all the loveable aspects of your companion, I will want know what their anxiety levels are like (especially during storm or fireworks), how they tend to act around other dogs and animals, and what they do and do not like to do.
Are they nervous around new people? If so, then I'd like to meet them and go on a walk with you before I take them out myself.
I love all kinds of dogs and have no breed preferences.
