Lauren was great with Sydney and kept me informed with regular updates. He was completely relaxed and happy when I got home - and the house was in great shape. I don't know how to express how grateful I am.

Lauren is a hard working and dedicated pet sitter. I have two Great Danes that can be difficult to manage for many people. Lauren has always been great with them. I can always trust that when I leave my animals in her care they will be loved and cared for. I have known Lauren and her love of animals for a long time and always feel better knowing she will be caring for my animals ...

My golden retriever stayed with Lauren or a long weekend and was very relaxed and happy when I picked him up. We are so glad we found Lauren to take care of our Max. She was a delight to deal with and was very accommodating. It gave us great peace of mind to know our dog was with someone so kind and capable. I would highly recommend her and look forward to using her services ...

Animal lover seeking dogs to pamper

Hi - My name is Lauren, I'm a young professional who enjoys taking care of animals. I have two cats of my own and have 10 years of pet-sitting experience. From cats to golden retrievers, I love them all. I live in a spacious apartment in Jamaica Plain and have access to a number of dog parks.

I’d be happy to provide references as well as meet or chat on the phone. Looking forward to ...

What Lauren would like to know about your dog

I gladly accept any and all breeds, neutered/spayed or not. I have good experience with golden retrievers, labs, pugs, pit bulls, etc.

I would like to know the following: How is your dog with other dogs? How are they with meeting new people? Are they good off-leash? (I love off-leash hikes!) Any history of aggression toward dogs or people? Any history of food/toy guarding? Do they sleep in a crate, in your bed, or on their own bed? How much do you feed your dog and how often?

Here's where we'll take our walks
Your dog and I will enjoy walks throughout the Jamaica Plain area. Quick walks will include the local dog park and stony brook park. Our longer walks will include strolls to the pond in JP along with walking along the Southwest Corridor path.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I ask that you bring your dog's favorite bed, blanket or crate. Your dog can feel free to make itself at home and sleep either in my room with me or anywhere else in the apartment.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Your dog will be by my side 24/7, aside from occasional, short errands (1 hour or less per day).

Time I'll spend with your dog
I will strive to spend as much time as needed to keep your pet's mind off of your absence and happy and entertained. This will, of course, depend on your wishes and what you are hiring me to do.

I currently work a full-time job on weekdays, with a super flexible schedule for the month of July. I will be able to come over during lunch breaks and I am always available to attend to your pet's specific needs during the hours both before and after work. I'm happy to discuss this in more detail upon inquiry.

Extra house-sitting services
I'm happy to do a variety of additional house sitting tasks
