Laurie is truly the best dog walker/home sitter we have ever had for our Bearded Collie Buzz.
He is always so excited to see Laurie for his walks.
We just recently had Laurie sit for Buzz at our home for a long weekend and when we returned he was looking for Laurie !!! Buzz adores her.
We will definitely continue to have Laurie for Buzz’s walks and overnights. Thank you Laurie!

We love Laurie! Very professional, trustworthy and thorough. She leaves great notes and takes sweet photos while we are away. Our senior German Shepherd loves her too! Will absolutely use Laurie’s services again.

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. However, I will not transport a dog that is not crated (would have to fit in my car) UNLESS it is an emergency.
