What Laura would like to know about your dog

I am available to board or sit one dog or cat at a time, who must get along with my two cats, be low- to moderate-energy, and potty trained (exceptions made on the final requirement for babies, seniors, and those with medical issues). I cannot board or sit large dogs (85 lbs and up) .
When sitting an animal or just checking in, I aim to provide the highest level of care possible. I keep my house stocked with cat-and-dog-specific medical care items, and stay up to date on new protocol for assisting them. I also have 20+ years of experience in giving dogs head pats.

When Laura watches your pet

Walks with me are tailored to your dogs needs: I take high-energy dogs up the biggest incline available, and make sure dogs with a tendency to overexert can get out their energy without overheating. I try to get a cute photo during, and bring water to make sure they stay hydrated.
On a stay with me, a dog or cat will get lots of attention, as well as any grooming/medical/diet needs specified by the owner. Naps on the sofa are encouraged, but not required. I have a small, fenced in yard, and a very walkable neighborhood. For older furbabies who might be stair-averse, I have a small stretch of turf on our balcony, and will carry them on stairs if necessary.
