Laurie's great! She takes her time to get to know your pet. She's very patient and loving. I felt very
comfortable leaving my dog with her. She also sent me pictures from their walk and play time at

Laurie is the best! She treats my dog, Murphy, like he is her own dog, and Murphy always loves going to hang out at her house. Murphy has such a fun time there! Laurie is also incredibly kind and very accommodating. She has seriously been a life-saver!

I have always been happy with this sitter. This last visit, I asked for daily pictures, and an update on how the dog was doing-- I only received one picture during the three days.

40+ years of pet loving experience

I will care for your dog like he/she is my own. They will feel right at home as I follow your regular daily schedule including - exercise, meals, play and sleep. They will be welcomed onto our dog beds (or their own that you provide) or they may feel most comfortable cuddling on my bed. You will be met with a calm, content and happy-head dog when you return.
I provide baths, basic grooming, trail ...

What Laurie would like to know about your dog

I would ask the owner if the pup has any preferences for the following: length of walk in minutes, food allergies or limitations, meds, issues with children or other types of dogs, where they are used to sleeping, what time of day do they usually eat and what time they wake up to go out in the morning and night time walk.

When Laurie watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Several options we walk daily:
Trail leading to a small neighborhood loop.
Neighborhood Loop to a small dog park and side walks all the way home.
Upon request - we often go to Hendry's and Dog area of Tucker's Grove - if the owner and their pet are comfortable with and well behaved during off leash play time and walks.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Anywhere they are used to sleeping at their primary home. Dogs are welcome on any of the four dog beddies, on my queen bed, on my daughters twin bed and also on the couch adorned with yummy fleece cuddle blankets.

Time I'll spend with your dog
24 hours. I work from home.

In my home, I provide the care that a dog is most accustomed to at their own home. This consistency gives the dog a sense of security even when they are somewhere new. Following owners' directions is my focus regarding sleeping, eating, walks, and rules such as on/off furniture. If they are used to being a cuddling-lap-dog they can spend many hours each day being cuddled. If their favorite activity is ball fetching - we will head to the park with our chucker and fetch a few times per day.
