Laurie did a phenomenal job with our dog, Maevis, while we were out of town. I'm always nervous to leave our dog, but Laurie was so professional and sent many updates and was obvious from the pictures that Maevis felt totally comfortable with Laurie. We came home to a very happy pup AND an immaculate home. We (Maevis especially) are looking forward to utilizing Laurie in the future...thanks so much Laurie!

Laurie is the best pet sitter we have ever used. We feel comfortable leaving our fur babies in her care. We really appreciate that she sends pictures which reassures is that our dogs are well. Highly recommend her.

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.
