About Laura

My husband Jack and I live in Bath with our dog Obi. We have a spacious house and secure garden, with plenty of room for running around and games. There is also a large public green over the road from our house, where we walk every day for lots of enrichment. 

We have extensive experience with anxious dogs and have worked with trainers and behaviourists to fully understand the needs of reactive dogs, particularly those who are afraid of people. If your dog is scared of new people, we will work with you at your pace to make sure they feel safe and secure when it's time for them to stay with us. We are able to do walks in trigger-free environments if necessary. 

Both of us work from home, so we can also accomodate dogs with separation anxiety — at least one of us will be home at all times. We can provide all the love and affection a needy dog might want, and are well-practised at reading the signs of a dog who wants to be left alone. 

Our dog Obi is a big goofball — he's shy with people but loves other dogs, and is very playful. He is always up for a game of chase or wrestle. He's very adaptable, and will play all day if his buddies are game, or he'll leave them to their own devices if they're not interested. He is fixed, so we are also able to accept female dogs who have not been spayed. We have multiple spaces in the house where your dog can have solo time if needed, including for feeding and sleeping. 

On weekends we usually go for longer hikes in the countryside to keep things interesting, and we have games and puzzles galore to keep your dog mentally busy.

We will also stick to any requests you have about routines and training, both in and out of the house. For example, dogs are allowed on all our furniture, but if you don't want this for your dog then we will make sure to follow that instruction.

We are able to do pick-up and drop-off around the Bath/Bristol area, and are open to last-minute bookings. Long-stay visits are also welcome. We have experience administering medication and will send regular updates of how your dog is getting on. We love all dogs, big and small, rescue or pedigree, and can't wait to meet yours.

Laura and jack looked after our dog for a few days and it was a success as the first time being away in a new home. Great comms and photos reassured us that all was well and that our dog was having a good time. Thank you!

I'm so glad I found Laura to look after my dog while I was on a course in Bath. He's quite an elderly dog and I do worry if he will cope with things. He's not an easy dog to look after now as he doesn't walk far or play and can seem unsettled at times. But Laura was great with him, she really cared for him and kept in touch during the day with updates on how he was. It was a great relief to know he was being treated so well. I totally recommend her.
