Lauren is a conscientious, compassionate individual with a true love for dogs. In fact, when we were college roommates, one of our frequent topics of conversation was how much we loved our own dogs (and animals in general).
She's trustworthy, friendly, and will take great care of your furry family member!

Lauren walked our Brittany puppy Rosie for us several days a week from the time Rosie was 4 months old until she was 14 months old. Lauren was reliable and trustworthy, and Rosie loved Lauren. Lauren is very good with dogs and puppies, and her gentle but firm manner with them lets the dog know they are loved but that Lauren is in charge.

Experienced, active & responsible!

I've had dogs as pets my entire childhood and couldn't imagine life without them! I grew up with Border Collies but love every breed out there.

I am a Dog TLC volunteer at the Whatcom Humane Society where I spend time with dogs and ...

What Lauren would like to know about your dog

It would be great to know your dog's reactivity level to other dogs. Are they okay to meet other pups on the walk or should we steer clear?

Kids are another question. Should we avoid them?

Also, of course any medical conditions would be essential to know.

I have no breed preferences- they're all awesome.

When Lauren watches your pet

I love taking dogs on the off-leash trails at Lake Padden when I feel comfortable. If keeping dogs on leash is more appropriate, I would choose a nice walk down by the water. I love the scenic walk between downtown Bellingham and Fairhaven. Playing fetch at the dog park is always fun too!
