Laura's furry clients.

Hi, I'm Laura!

Hello, I work from home as a freelance web designer and am a life-long dog lover. I love all animals but have always had a special connection with dogs in particular. I live with my boyfriend, Daniel, who works full-time as a fitness and boxing instructor (and also loves dogs). We lost our beloved Ruby (a 20lb. Shelty cross) back in August of last year to old age. We miss her dearly and love welcoming the presence of a dog back into our home. We have all her old doggie toys, leash, food bowls etc. for any of our canine guests to use if needed.

I will do my very best to make the separation from your pet a little easier for everyone by providing a fun, peaceful and loving place for them to stay. We can keep in contact as much or as little as you'd like and I'm always happy to keep you posted with plenty of videos/photos throughout their stay. I understand how hard it is to be separated from your pet but you can be sure that you're leaving them in good hands. I will keep them as happy and healthy as can be which will include lots of exercise, fresh air, playtime, comfy places to sleep/relax and plenty of tummy scratches too! 

I make my own schedule for work so I'll be able to give your dog lots of attention. We have many trails and dog parks within walking distance from our home or just a short drive away. Our house is located in a residential part of North Vancouver in the lower Lonsdale area. Local dog friendly walks that we frequent include the Mosquito Creek trails, Victoria Park and the Ambleside beach dog park. Both Dan and I are well practiced at managing all sorts of doggie temperaments and at keeping bad behaviours under control. Our philosophy on relating to and communicating with dogs is based on the "Marker Training" method which focuses on positive reinforcement. If you have any preferences or special needs for the care of your dog please provide me with the necessary instructions and I will see that everything is done accordingly. 

Dogs are family, and it is my pleasure and privilege to love and care for them. It is a responsibility I do not take lightly. We would love to welcome your dog into our home and family and do our very best to make them feel comfortable and loved while you are away. 

Looking forward to meeting you!

Laura :)
