Laurel kept our sweet puppy Rosie overnight, Rosie was so well cared for and we would recommend her services to anyone looking for a loving and trustworthy pet sitter! We loved getting updates while we were away!

Laurel was great! Very flexible on drop off and pick up times. She sent me photos everyday with an update on his activity. She has a beautiful home with a great backyard. Would definitely recommend!

We have used Laurel several times now and will continue to go back to her for our dog watching needs when she is available! She is great and our puppies love her! She sends photo updates, communicates well with us when out of town, and always works to coordinate pick up and drop off times that work for us.

Experienced sitter in Jo. Co. KS

I am a true animal lover, conveniently located in Merriam KS with access to I-35. I share my home with my roommate, 2 dogs, 1 cat (no front claws), and 1 kitten. Our animals are wonderful with dogs. Both dogs are mellow with great, relaxed, energy. We also have a 4' fully fenced in yard with enough space to work up a quick run. My roommate and I both work full time M-F (8-5), but ...

What Laurel would like to know about your dog

I would like to know how the dog interacts with other animals, the typical energy level, what types and quantity of physical activity the dog requires, and any "quirks" that the dog might have (counter surfer, fear of thunderstorms, etc.).

When Laurel watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
My hour walk is a loop that I do around my neighborhood. Everything takes place on the sidewalk. Part of it is quite and along side-streets and the other part is busier around main streets. I can adjust this accordingly, however. Antioch Park is also less than 5 minutes away.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
That is completely up to you. Our dogs do not crate. Tucker sleeps on his giant dog bed in my bedroom and Sadie sleeps in bed with my roomate. The cats always sleep in the bed with me. If your dog does sleep in the bed and hops in with me; it doesn't bother me.....I've had two dogs and two cats in the bed with me before! If you prefer your dog to be crated at night we can accommodate it; whether it's in my room or in another room, otherwise, the dog will be free-range as ours are.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Everything is weather pending. I typically do 1x45 min. to 1 1/2 hr+ walk per day. If it's hot, I do the walk in the morning before the heat. I do work 8am-5pm Monday to Friday. Some days I ride my horses after work, but either myself or my roomate are home and awake from 5:30pm-10:30pm+. For weekends, at least one of us is typically home most of the time.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Whatever is needed! Your dog is treated like our dogs. If they need additional walking, I'll drop the other dogs off at home and continue the walk with yours. If they like to play fetch in the back yard, I'd be happy to!
