What Laura would like to know about your dog

When Laura watches your pet

Your dog can expect lots of love, attention, and play time if left in my care. I am happy to accommodate your pups' regular routine so that he or she will be as comfortable and happy in your absence as is possible. Leave me instructions and I will follow them to the letter.
