"Knowing your animals are very well cared for takes a lot of stress off!! Lara is knowledgeable and compassionate in what she does !! Highly recommend.”
"Thank you Lara for taking such awesome care of Murphy & Kaner. You were great!! I had no worries about being gone. They obviously were very happy looking at the pictures you sent. Thank you again!”
“Lara was great! She watched our 3 dogs and 2 cats for us on fairly short notice. She's super understanding of pets behaviors and personalities and works with all sorts of animals. She's very thorough in making sure she has all the info she needs to care for your pets (meds, illnesses, behaviors, quirks, etc). She checks in every day and let's you know how your babies are doing. She'll send pics, too! :) She worked with us on setting an appropriate schedule with our younger dog who was working on his crate training and helped with price a little too. Would absolutely recommend and use again! Thank you, Lara! ”
"Going away? Got a pet? Worried about leaving your furry or feathered friend home alone? ...Call Lara! :)
Lara watched our home and large assortment of pets from goldfish to horses! She took care of our horses, goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, cats, dogs, and parrots. Finding someone to watch such a variety of pets and so many has been a difficult task. I have spoken with a quite a few pet sitting services who have declined to take on the seemingly daunting task of taking care of someone's farm while they are away. Lara never batted an eye at it!...including our 150 lb South African Mastiff who has been known to be overprotective. Our dog now greets Lara with a "baby" each time she arrives. She provided us with updates and pictures of our pets which reassured us that everyone was happy and healthy while we were away.
Our pets are our children and knowing that Lara is here to take care of them gave us the peace of mind to leave them "home alone" for the first time in years. Having someone who is trustworthy and knowledgeable is priceless! Highly recommend Lara for all your pet sitting needs.”
"Lara is by far the best Pet sitter and care giver to our animals I have ever had - we interviewed with her and use her on a regular basis. We have some high maintenance dogs and she handle them with out a blink of an eye - If you need someone to watch your dog or any animal for a night a day a week - she treats them as they are her own..... Truly fantastic - feel free to PM me if you have any questions. I am hooked and our animals love her - You say Lara now in our house and the dogs are excited!!!! You just can't go wrong. And her knowledge is amazing...Look no further - she is the best!!!”
“We went on vacation and needed someone to watch our cats. I luckily found Lara and I'm so happy that I did. She was absolutely fabulous. She sent us emails after every visit updating us on how they were doing and also sent some pictures of them. I did not worry about them at all. She also brought in all our mail and swept up and cleaned after them. I'm so happy I found paw prints I won't be using anyone else. I highly recommend Lara.”
"Lara took excellent care of all of our fur babies (3 dogs, 3 cats, 1 chicken, and some fish) while we went on a cruise. This was the first time we have used a pet sitter, but definitely not the last as long as Paw Prints Concierge Services is available. It's so nice to have peace of mind and get updates regularly (with pictures!). Thanks so much Lara!
"I am thrilled with this woman! Very professional and went above and beyond. Highly recommend. You will NOT be disappointed!"
"Lara did an amazing job taking care of my 5 dogs, 2 cats and 2 rats in my home while I was away on vacation. She sent texts, pictures and videos everyday and I was able to enjoy my time away knowing my babies were well taken care of and happy!"
"Lara comes over a few times a week while I'm at work to walk my dog Ginger and play ball and frisbee with her in the yard. She's very reliable and flexible. I LOVE that she sends me pictures of Ginger's smiling face at each visit :-)
It makes my day to know my dog is being well cared for and getting exercise while I'm at work. Lara is the best!"
