Lauren was so very kind, pacient and accomodating to Chimi and our schedule. We got late drop-off and early pick-up. We also scheduled a meet and greet. She took all my directions and suggestions and mostly made sure Chimi was happily excercised. Would definitively call her again.

Lauren is phenomenal. She watched my dog Kobe when I had to go out of town for several days. I had just recently adopted him and he was still adjusting to his new home. Kobe has a rather high prey drive and was still being house trained when I left. While I was gone Lauren kept me constantly up to date on Kobes well being and took him out to the giant dog park to ...

We have a 16 year old miniature dachshund that requires a lot of extra care.
Lauren dog sat for the weekend while we were out of town and completely eased my worries about leaving him. She sent me daily updates as well as photos and asked all the right questions if I'd missed something.
I would totally recommend her to anyone with a wide range of dog breeds and ages. On the spectrum of difficulty ...

Active & outdoorsy w/ a fenced yard

I am an active and outdoorsy year-round cyclist, meaning that I am both unencumbered by public transportation, and undeterred by poor weather conditions. I am located in the incredibly dog friendly Mt. Pleasant neighborhood, in proximity to both Rock Creek and the 11th Street Dog Park, and I have a small enclosed backyard. I have regularly taken care of a bonded pair of small dogs in my home throughout 2017 thus far, and have never ...

What Lauren would like to know about your dog

Because I live in the basement apartment of a rowhouse, beneath a family with two children under 10 (with whom we share the backyard space) I can only accept small to medium sized, non-aggressive breeds. I am a full time office worker Monday - Friday (though I have the ability to bike home during my lunch hour for a quick walk) so I strongly prefer dogs who will be reasonably quiet when left alone. Because the neighborhood is very dog-oriented, I will need to know how each dog reacts/behaves with other strange dogs.

When Lauren watches your pet

My favorite part of dog-sitting is the opportunity for long walks and neighborhood exploration! I do plenty of dog-friendly activities in my spare time, including trips to the hardware store and long afternoons of gardening in my backyard. If appropriate for the particular animal, I can never pass up a trip to the 11th Street Dog Park in Columbia Heights.
