We could not have found a better sitter! After hours of researching online and speaking with other sitters, we came across Laurel's profile and set up a meeting with her. Our girls bonded with her immediately - with one jumping up on her lap and licking Laurel's face! She definitely has a way with animals.
Laurel was very responsible in the days leading up to our departure - frequently reaching out with questions about our dogs care ...

Laurel was great with my fur babies! I highly recommend her. She emailed me daily update and photos.

Laurel was the best dog sitter we've ever had! She's highly responsible, kind, loving, and efficient. I have an elderly dog, 3 hamsters, and 4 fish. She made sure everything was taken care of and even ran out to get us dog food when we ran out! I felt so secure with Laurel. She's really on top of things! I am so glad we found her!

l have spent over 20 years working with dogs, horses, cats, and more, and 10 of those years were in a professional capacity working at a dog and horse boarding facility as well as running a local pet sitting business for all types of animals. l love everything from cuddling on the couch to going on long walks!

What Laurel would like to know about your dog

Is your dog aggressive toward unfamiliar people or dogs? Does he or she try to run out when entering/exiting the home? Does he or she have a favorite route to walk?

I love all breeds of dogs; I grew up with a greyhound and several mutts and hound mixes. I’ve never met a pitbull that wasn’t a total sweetheart, and I’d never turn down a small breed cuddle buddy either. I'm up for anything!

When Laurel watches your pet

We can do anything from cuddling on the couch to long walks around your neighborhood or nearby hikes. I’m up for whatever your dog likes to do!

Please note that I will not accept next-day requests to walk or check on dogs I have not met before. For your pup's piece of mind and mine, I prefer not to be a stranger when approaching your home alone for the first time!

Keep in mind for house sitting requests, I do work outside of the home on weekdays. I work from 9:30am-7pm, so I will be around for walks in the daylight, breakfast and dinner, and can keep a regular schedule for medications your dog may need. I make a point to be home with your dog as much as possible when I am not at work, so we can both enjoy our time together!
