Lauren was great! Responsible, good communicator, sent plenty of updates and pics, and took great care of our dog and our home. AND she left us a ton of persimmons from her tree!

We are first time users of Rover and we are simply amazed at how great this service was. Our house sitter Lauren is nothing less than amazing! Lauren was so good to our fur babies while we were out of town. We recieved daily updates and pictures which was so comforting to see how everyone was doing. We came home to our animals being calmer than when we left them. Both the dog and the ...

Our dog, Randee, immediately adored Lauren!
She has such a great calm and caring energy. This is such a plus since Randee has grown more anxious in her senior years.
Before dog sitting for the weekend, Lauren came by to meet our pooch and go through the essentials (feeding, medication, walking). She asked great questions and wrote down notes as we went through everything, leaving us confident Randee would be in good hands.
We got ...

Compassionate, Active Dog Lover

I began dog watching nearly 4 years ago, caring for my housemates' Pit Bull and Chihuahua. I've since begun sitting for friends simply because I love spending time with dogs! I regularly watch a Labradoodle and Jack Russell Terrier, two of my favorites. As I am currently unable to own a dog of my own, I find caring for others dogs a good way to connect with these lovely animals. I'm a graduate student, so ...

What Lauren would like to know about your dog

I like to get to know a dog's likes and dislikes before sitting. What is feeding time like, what toys are her favorites, where and how does he sleep? Are there certain instances that provoke anxiety, has the dog had difficulty with your being away in the past? The more familiarity I can provide for your pup when you're away, the less stressful it will be for him!

I have no breed preferences. I love dogs big and small!

When Lauren watches your pet

I enjoy taking dogs for nature walks Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, Forest Park, and Tryon Creek Park. Neighborhood walks are also nice! I have been in Portland for 10 years and have experience living in NE, SE, and SW - though I always like discovering new places too!

I also enjoy playing fetch with dogs, whether at the park or in your backyard. Happy dogs make me happy.
