About Laura

Our home is a warm and welcoming place for dogs. They can be wherever we are and have choices of where to sleep and rest. I do 'treat searches' and allow dogs plenty of time to sniff and meet other dogs. When your dog is at my home, besides a nice walk with them, I will most likely sit and read or do computer work. Dogs love it when humans sit around so that they can rest. If you're on holidays, your dog will have had enough stress just getting here. Or, if you're local, your dog may be tired due to separation anxiety. I focus on the quality of time I spend with dogs so your dog will be happily relaxed when you pick him/her up from me instead of stressfully 'worn out.'


If possible, walk, feed and toilet your dog before you meet me the first time or for subsequent drop off days. I am happy to feed your dog and walk them during their visit but the less transitions, the better for your dog.

It's best not to 'wear out' your dog(s) before you drop him/her off as this will just increase their stress level. Just a short walk is fine.

Tell me what medication and/or health/behavioural issues your dog is coping with so that I can tailor your dog's stay to suit his/her needs.

Bring your dog's blankets, toys, treats, food (if necessary), bowl(s), leash (prefer no flexi-leads) and harness (preferred). Please see this link (copy URL):

Make sure that your dog protected by flea deterrent before arrival as my dog is allergic to flea bites.

My dog, Nash, loves having other dogs visit but I am sorry, I cannot take puppies.

(NB: We just bought our house in April 2016 and are still decorating. Not 'house beautiful' but it is safe for dogs)

    Laura had our little whippet for the day, at very short notice. She was so lovely, as was her husband, and we had no concerns leaving our fur baby with her. I make no hesitation in recommending her services.

    Thanks Becci and Dave, Honey helped us to chill out today and taught us how to kiss a Whippet who is standing up on her toes! Please visit Penzance again as Nash and his family will gladly share our couch and trails with Honey anytime. :)

    Laura was really caring with Roly our six year old Cockerpoo. He just stayed one evening, but can be very nervous in unfamiliar situations. Laura made him feel very happy. She took a lot of trouble to get to know him, and making sure he felt really at home and relaxed with her. She absolutely loves dogs, which is wonderful.

    Thank you Ursula for your kind words. Getting to know you and Roly has been a great pleasure and I very much hope I will see you again. ;)

    Our deerhound Luna has just spent a few days living it up with Laura in her home. Laura spent lots of time before the booking, getting to know her and helping her feel at home by letting her come and visit and finding out her likes and dislikes. Laura sent us photos and messages throughout Luna's stay so we knew she was having a great time. She had a great time and we'd be very happy to recommend Laura and have her look after Luna again.

    Thanks so much for your positive review. Luna was so much fun - her face is delightfully expressive and she wants to be part of everything that is going on. Our house feels empty without her! I look forward to having Luna stay with us again. :)
