From the moment Laura kneels down to greet your dog, you know she's special. Laura was terrific with my older dog, Teddy (who can be a bit of a pill): patient and animal-loving, Laura shows up on time and she really connects with your pet. The pics and Rover card that was filled out and sent each day was helpful too!

I will use Laura again the next time I need to find a dog-walker ...

Laura house-sat while we were on vacation out of the country. She looked after our beloved fur babies, a Weimaraner, and creaky old kitty, while we were gone. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Laura was wonderful with our pets, and sent us regular updates. The house was in great shape when we returned, and our pets were calm and happy. We'll definitely see you again, Laura!

Off-fur-ing puppy and kitty love!

Hello! I'm Laura. I'm 18 years old, living in the Dexter-Ann Arbor area. I work online as a high school student so I have tons of free time. I love animals more than people, especially my Border Collie Husky Mix, Bentley, who I have taken care of for about 5 years, as well as my two cats and my many chickens! I'd love to have a furry friend by my side when I take walks ...

What Laura would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if your dog has trouble in cars (my dog gets anxious and sometimes pukes), if they are timid or aggressive around other dogs, have separation anxiety, destructive behaviors, or if there are any other special needs that may be important for me to take into account when walking or spending time with your pooch (or cat). Do they have bad habits? What are they trained to do? For over night stays, I'd love to know what rules you have in place for your dog (no sleeping on the bed, no begging, bed time, etc) and what their habits are for potty breaks and meals. If you'd like me to help give oral medications, please have thorough written directions!

When Laura watches your pet

My favorite place to walk dogs is at the Dexter border to border trail on the Huron River, dog parks, the Arboretum, on designated trails, or close by home if your dog has trouble in cars or is more comfortable in familiar spaces. If your dog loves playing fetch, lets throw some toys! I give lots and lots of belly rubs, attention, and tug of war. As for cats, I can provide catnip, cuddles, daily wet food, water, treats, play time, and watch them outside or walk them.
