Introduction: I am a former Vet/Kennel Technician. I have over 25 + years of animal care experience both personally and professionally. I only take pets from one family at a time so I may give them the “at home” experience instead of a boarding facility. My home is pet friendly, your pets are treated as if they were my very own. I check in every morning & evening with an update and pics when boarding. Day stay updates at least once within the 6 hour time frame, more if they are active and warrant a memory. I try to capture the atmosphere while here. Doggie Day Care starts at $30 a day, 6 hour max. $5 fee for every hour after that. DISCOUNT if you schedule 2 days or more each week, rate drops to $25 a day, 6 hour max. Drop off times negotiable. I am scheduled a week or more in advance, pre-booking is highly suggested. I can only accommodate multiple dogs 40#’s and under, If you only have one dog, I can accommodate a larger breed depending on behavior. Boarding is charged for a 24 hour period 12 pm to 12 pm the next day. NOT WHEN YOU DROP OFF YOUR PET. Overnight rate is $40. Holiday* rate is $50. Extra pet is an additional $7.50 per night. No extra charge for special diet, medication administration or walks. (Holidays are: Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day) Meet & greet is preferred, you will need proof of vaccinations, Veterinarian information & boarding/day stay form filled out. I can email the form to you prior if you wish to fill it out at home.

You will not find a better Dog Care expert than Laura. Her qualifications, service, knowledge & professionalism is amazing in today's society. Her home is pet friendly and need I say "immaculate" I have 2 mini-doxies that absolutely run to greet her when we arrive. She spoils them as if they were her very own. Sends food and snacks home with them and makes sure they have their own toys and chews to play with. Her own dog, Gunner is THE best Boi ever. I can not say enough positive things. Her rates based on her qualifications is small compared to other boarding/day stay facilities. You get what you pay for. I am happy in the knowledge my dogs are not locked in a cage or crate when I need boarding & daycare.

As a long time client of Laura’s I was prompted to write a review regarding her care. I have been a client of hers since she started in 2014, At that time I had 3 small dogs, one that needed insulin because he was diabetic. I hired Laura as she is a Vet Tech and I felt comfortable knowing she could perform injections without issue. NEVER once did she ever replace my dog’s food with her own, she did explain that my dogs would eat her dogs food but also theirs. They are dogs, all dogs will try something new. She always sends home any extra food my dogs may not have eaten instead of keeping it for herself. She never ignored any written directive and notes I submitted to her. In fact, as a new client, she instructed me to give her as many notes as possible so we were on the same page to avoid any confusion or misinformation. My pups come home groomed, bathed and smelling like lavender. She sends morning & evening text messages and updates. I have yet to find a facility or private sitter that can match Laura’s time, care and effort. I will continue bringing my pets to her and have followed her when she moved from my area in South Austin. She has a vast knowledge of animal care, not just with dogs. I like the fact that my dogs have personal interaction as well as a playmate, instead of being stashed in a crate or run.

Had her watch my dogs Ruby and Moose. They were treated very well just like they were her dogs. Updates and pictures were sent so we always knew how our dogs were doing. She responded to all questions and in a timely manner. Very professional and helpful with everything.

Laura has been my go to Sitter for the past 5 years. Organized, efficient, trustworthy AND most of all dependable. I never have to worry if she will arrive. She has had to visit over scheduled times due to my work schedule and will not ever leave my dogs without care until I get home. Communicates daily, leaves my house in perfect order and respects my home. My dogs love her... She has the knowledge and training of Vet care and dog behavior, which is a plus for me as I have a Senior dog that needs medication and special care. She is a true "Puppy Guru"...... Allison A.

I’m so glad I chose Laura to look after my babies. She checked in with me every morning and sent pics throughout the day, my mind was put to ease. After picking my babies up they came home and slept most of the day from having such a great time. Will definitely use Laura again.
