Laura was fantastic and very accommodating when I had to change times.
Kept in touch with lovely photos and Chester wants to go back again as he had a great time.

Finley thoroughly enjoyed his stay with Laura. She was great! I got photo updates and messages while he was with her and it was so comforting that she could deal with all his puppy energy. I will definitely have Laura look after Finley in the future, she is a really great sitter.

Laura is a top shelf dog sitter, and we could tell right away when we met that our girl would be having a great stay with her. Laura is very thorough, and her communication was excellent from beginning to end. We will definitely be booking with her again!

Your dog has an exclusive with me!

Why should you consider trusting your precious pup to my care? These 7 reasons may be important to you:
- Your dog(s) will have 100% of my care and attention! I only host one client's dog(s) at a time, and I don't have any pets of my own (just great memories.)
- I am a totally devoted dog lover. Dogs come first in my book. Caring, paying attention to their needs, ensuring they are happy ...

What Laura would like to know about your dog

Most important is getting to know YOUR lifestyle with your dog(s) so we can maintain a consistent, familiar routine... knowing your preferred feeding schedule, exercise program, sleeping arrangements, commands, and personality traits - as well as any health care issues, of course - is paramount to a safe, happy stay.

When Laura watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Your dog's health, age, stamina, and preferred socialization style with other dogs will determine the nature of the exercise we take. Examples: long walks up and down the rolling hills of our quiet neighborhood; hikes at nearby Water Dog Lake or San Juan Canyon; jogs around the lagoon in Foster City; visits to any one of the many dog parks in the area. I try to do two good length outings per day (scaled to your dog's ability), first thing in the morning and again in late afternoon.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Typically I find that a dog likes to sleep on his or her own bed or blanket placed on the floor adjacent to my own bed. Even a dog experiencing first night separation anxiety is often calmed by hearing my own peaceful breathing, in a warm and darkened room, comforted by the familiar smells of his/her own bedding.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home most of the day doing internet research and writing, which is why dog sitting works so well in my schedule. I like to take a brisk walk daily, too! Depending on the particular pup, we can do walks around the neighborhood (residential, low traffic, lots to sniff), take an on-leash but vigorous jaunt on the nearby hiking trails, or visit the dog park for socialized romping. A trip to the beach is also an option.
