Best Pup Hangout In Town!

I've been a professional dog lover for about 10 years now. This has introduced me to many sizes, colors and breeds. I've interacted with many puppies as well as many seniors. Every pup has taught me a lesson that I've been able to implement into my dog walking now. I have experience in dog sitting, dog boarding and dog walking. I know every pup experience is unique and I love knowing that each pup will ...

What Laura would like to know about your dog

I've concluded that Meet and Greets are the way to go! It's the best opportunity for the pet, the owner and the dog professional to meet and really see if the chemistry is there. The pet needs to hit it off immediately with the dog professional. Some shyness is normal at first but after a few minutes the pup should feel more comfortable being around the walker/sitter. The owner can really take this time to ask more questions or get to know the walker/sitter. I'm open to all sizes when it comes to dog sitting. The pup will be in his/her own environment so it'll be less stressful for the pup and owner. I prefer to board smaller pups simply because I have two of my own. I don't want my guest pup or my own to feel too overwhelmed with the stay. When it comes to walking, I'm comfortable with small to medium sizes. I want to make sure I am in full control of the walk. I never want a pup to get hurt during our walk simply because I couldn't stay in control of the leash. I know pups get excited on walks and it's only normal.

I’ll want to know everything I can about your dog, so don’t hesitate to lay it all out for me!

When Laura watches your pet

I'm usually up by 7 AM letting the pups out to stretch their legs in the backyard or going on a nice walk to start the day. This walk is followed by a nutritious and balanced breakfast previously chosen by the owner. I always make sure to include a treat for dessert. Normally the pup will go and take a nap and later we hop in the car for a visit to the local dog park. We come back home to some fresh water and some relaxing time. This includes toy time or watching Animal Planet. Dinner time approaches and while some pups only get one meal a day, there's always the choice for a yummy treat. We conclude our day with our last walk just as the sun is setting and the day has cooled down. We head off to bed after getting some kisses and love.

Walks are always so much fun! I also love to explore different dog parks on my walks all around the city. Some areas have more paths with grassy areas and other places are too busy to just walk on the sidewalks. In cases like that I get permission from the owner to visit the local dog park to give the pup more room to stretch, while keeping safety as the priority. I always make sure to bring poop bags and water on each walk, keeping in mind how hot it is in Miami and how easily a pup can experience heat exhaustion. Some areas of the city have nice and quiet streets with trees that form a canopy of shade. It's rewarding to see a pup sniff so many trees and leaves along our walk. You can just see how happy they are.
