Laura took care of our dog for 2 weeks on our trip out of country. This is the first time we have used Rover and one thing we were looking for was somebody who really loves dogs and has experience, so we chose Laura. Laura sent us many pictures of Daisy (our dog) every day, she answered our questions, she took our dog every day for walks, and also she took Daisy to the park ...

miley has health challenges I was scared to leave her at all. I had to leave for a few days. Called around for weeks and found Rover.com. Found Laura. OMG! Glory days! I felt like we were friends from just walking in her home. She took great care of miley, sent pictures daily and talked to me if i needed. She is the best. Thank you Laura. You are the best!!

Loving, Experienced & Educated

I'm Laura, I'd like to take care of your dog next time you go out of town or for the day. I know how hard it is leaving your loved one when you are out of town, at work or busy. I will take care of your dog just like I take care of my pets.

I have been a Christian for 26 years, I am very caring and honest, I love animals. I don't ...

What Laura would like to know about your dog

Under my rates, I am charging $10 for a full bath, towel drying and blow drying. If your dog rolls in something outside and I have to wash the area your dog rolled in then I am not charging for that, that is free.

I don't want puppies, yes, puppies are so cute but they are not potty trained and they chew on chords.

I like a chest harness, instead of a neck harness. When you pull on the neck harnesses they choke the dog and also my dog had a pulled muscle in his neck and those harnesses could also give a dog a pulled muscle. When my dog had the pulled muscle in his neck, he was on several painkillers, which made him dizzy, and a muscle relaxer, he even cried in pain several times. I took him to the vet hospital and the vet 3 times, which cost me a little over $500 and it was like that for two and a half months. If you don't have a chest harness then I'll use my dog chest harness on your dog.

If this is your first time using Rover then let me know. Rover will give you $20 off your first stay and I will send you a promo code.

Dropping off and picking up your pet I give a reduced rate, depending on time. You or I may book the stay but I will book the stay to take money off for dropping off and picking up.

Please bring food for your dog. Please also bring moist food and treats for your dog because I give my dogs moist food every other day and I don't want to leave your dog out. I have a reverse osmosis water purification system and I give all pets purified water, no need to bring water, unless you have a special vitamin water you want to bring, then that's fine.

I don't want to care for large dogs because I have 2 Chihuahuas and a cat, big dogs scare them, no dogs over 30 lbs.

I don't want to care for a dog that is a biter, not a vicious dog. If the dog gives playful bites then that's alright.

I don't want to care for a dog that chews up and makes holes in shoes, furniture, carpets, walls, etc.

I don't want to watch dogs that are not potty trained. When I got one of my Chihuahuas for my son, she was only 2 months old when given to us and not potty trained. My son walked her every hour to potty train her and she was in doggy diapers. Potty training takes a lot of time and work washing 3 cloth diapers every day, with my dogs and cat, and watching another dog, I won't have the time to potty train.

I don't want dogs that are not on flea control, I don't want the fleas to get on my carpet and on my cat. I use flea control for my dogs and there is flea control in the shampoo I use on my cat, he's an indoor cat. None of my pets has fleas.

Thank you! :)

About Laura's Home

When Laura watches your pet

There's a lot of grass in the neighborhood I live in, fields of grass overlooking lakes. There is plenty of grass to walk dogs in. I live in a gated community, I own a villa on the first floor, there is only one other home connected to mine. When I go on walks with dogs, I stay out there till they all go. I give them breaks in the shade while we are walking. I have dog toys to play with them. I also will pet your dog, rub their chest and belly, my dogs and cat like that.

If your dog will be with me a week or more, I will take your dog to the dog park.

I have plenty of dog beds. You may bring whatever you want to make your pet feel more comfortable here. The dogs I have watched sleep in the dog beds I have or with me in the bed, even when people have brought their dog's bed.
