Laura kept us updated with pictures and texts throughout Zuma's visit. She took him on walks daily & he explored Port Jefferson thoroughly. He was happy to see us when we picked him up and sad to leave her. Thanks again, Laura!

This was our first time using Laura and what an awesome experience all around. Laura was very accommodating, responsive and most importantly great with Milo. The photo updates really made my wife envious of his experience there lol!! We highly recommend Laura and would certainly use her again!!

Long Walks and Lovin'

My daughters and I started a dog sitter service for our friends after our own dog passed away. We love our furry friends! Our dog friendly house has a fenced in yard and is situated above a large dog park and beach. We offer lots of love and play time so every friend we care for is super happy and content, and you can feel confident your pet is safe and being treated like one ...

What Laura would like to know about your dog

We have sat all types of dogs big and small, our philosophy is pets are family members and that is how we treat them! Please bring toys, treats, favorite pillows and anything else that will help us make your pet's stay special. Let us know about special needs, socialization or anything you think is important. We respect your wishes and want your pet to be as happy as possible in our home. We also want your pet to feel safe and secure during the night. We don't allow our furry guests to sleep in the bedrooms as our permanent pets, a guinea pig and parakeet are afraid of them. Instead we set them up in the den where there are several cozy couches and plenty of room for doggie pillows and beds.

When Laura watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We have many walks in the hills around our home through wooded areas, parks, and beaches so there are many options for dogs who are social and like meeting other dogs, and those who are not.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Most dogs sleep in the television room or kitchen depending on their preferences, on pillows or in doggie beds you provide. For those who prefer crates you can bring your own or we can borrow one from a friend that accommodates up to standard poodle size.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am a writer who works in a teaching environment and am out of the house from 8-2:30. During that time our guests have "free range" of two spacious family rooms where they can look out the windows, play with their toys or cuddle up in their beds. Typically, our doggie guests go out for walks several times a day; in the morning, afternoon and evening. When the kids come home from school its playtime!
