Previously, family members have only watched our Koda and Naia, but since we were getting married, everyone we knew would also be busy! We needed someone to watch our dogs for two days and Laurie was the absolute perfect person! She stayed in our home and treated it as it was her own.

Laurie is amazing. She even stayed later than we asked her to. She catered to our anxious pup who wasn't even anxious with her.. couldn't recommend her more! We definitely turn to her to look after our pup!

What Laurie would like to know about your dog

No breed preference. I am strong and experienced enough to handle any size. I would like to met any dog I am caring for prior. I would like to know the dogs schedule because I know how disruptive and stressful any change of that can be for them. My goal is to keep them as stress free and happy as possible while owners are away.

When Laurie watches your pet

I will walk your dog where you prefer and are comfortable with. I am very fit, can jog with them, play fetch, or whatever you want for your dog physically. I will not transport a dog that is not crated (would have to fit in my car) UNLESS it is an emergency.
