Laura was an absolute gem! She communicates daily in detail and made us feel like our pets very in good hands while we were away. From the photos our dogs loved her and we will 100 per cent be using Laura’s services again!!

Laura was so great! She was thorough in getting to know Pepper, she was on time and sent a photo and updates when she arrived and when the walk was completed. She was so great, we used her the very next day. I was a little nervous to leave my dog with a stranger, but she quickly eased all concerns and we will definitely be using her again and again.

Walker, Aspiring Dogtographer

Hey there, I'm an at-home photographer / illustrator and this haircut makes me look like I'm twelve.

I'm mostly just looking for fun and companionship with some nice dogs, and to get myself away from my laptop for a few hours. :)

I've got a very flexible schedule, and am happy to walk or run with most sizes and breeds. (I'm pretty slim at about 120lbs, so maybe no dogs larger than me) The largest ...

What Laura would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences, but no dogs larger than me for walks. Sitting is fine for any size.

Please let me know if your dog is a young puppy / elderly / any special needs like deaf / blind / arthritis or meds. I love all breeds, including so-called "aggressive" breeds like pitbulls, german shepherds, or dobermans. (A mislabel if there ever was one!)

I have experience working with anxious and unsure dogs, and rescue dogs with trust issues and separation anxiety, helping them feel safe and happy with new people.

I am happy to follow any training routines you have with your dog to keep communication clear and consistent. (Sit, stay, come, heel, place) I'm familiar with hand signals, verbal commands and treats, and I will -never- use negative reinforcement.

When Laura watches your pet

I've got a great arm with the Chuck-It, if your pooch is a runner. If not, we can just mosey the neighborhood on a leash for a nice jog. Depending on how social your dog is, we can go to dog parks or just stay one-on-one.

I have recently increased my rates, as I prefer taking dogs out for longer, more dedicated walks, than trying to have more clients in a day. All of my walks are well over the half-hour time limit set by Rover from the moment we leave the doorstep to the time we return. I do not include leashing or cleanup time in my rover card walks. Your dog will get proper exercise and fresh air rather than a quick swing around the block.
