I can't say enough about the care offered by Laughing Dog and what it has meant for us. I contacted Jen early in 2018, a little nervously, to explain that I needed something more than the usual degree of commitment from a petsitter. In addition to cats and another dog, I have a feral rescue pup with a history of abuse. She's fear-reactive and has serious difficulties adjusting to new people, so I needed to find a sitter who could commit to forming a relationship with her through weekly visits well before I actually needed to travel. I was stunned by how quickly Jen won Zülli's trust and affection. She seemed to know all the fine points of body language to use with a fearful dog but also listened carefully to what I had to say about what works best with Zü. Leaving town with Jen watching everyone, I don't worry that medication will be skipped or water bowls get slimy or that Zülli will be a wreck when I get home. And the magic isn't limited just to Jen, but the people she chooses to work with Laughing Dog, as well. When she told me she had a new employee who she thought would be a great match for Zülli, we scheduled some introductory meetings --and she was right. The peace of mind I get from knowing that my whole household --and particularly my special needs dog- is being cared for someone they all like and trust is irreplaceable.
