Laurie stayed with our new rescue Jericho over Easter! We hadn't had him for long and we hated to have to leave him! After meeting Laurie I was more at ease about it! We were very happy with her and will definitely use her 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.
