Paws at Laura’s mission: to provide high quality, affordable, and individualized care for dogs.

About my house: My home is a single-family residence with a large fenced yard. Both doors that are used to enter/exit the house lead to the fenced yard. The gate latch is located on the outside of the gate to make it less accessible for larger dogs to reach. My home is a quiet, non-smoking household with no children. It’s just me and my boyfriend at the house. Safety is my number one priority and I take sole responsibility for the care of your dog(s). I am licensed and insured. I work full-time from home and may eventually be in the office once a week. I have experience with shy and/or deaf dogs, fearfulness, anxiety, giving medicine, handling potty accidents, etc. I am located in the suburbs of Silver Spring, MD on the northwest end of Cloverly, MD. For frame of reference I am 45 minutes north of Dupont Circle.

About my pets: I have 3 small dogs (16yo Italian Greyhound, 11yo Dachshund, 8yo Chihuahua mix). I also have a cat named Mandy. Mandy doesn’t really like dogs, so if they bother her, she’s content in her room. My greyhound is named Mickey and he is deaf and struggles with incontinence, so I have experience with the needs of elderly dogs. My dachshund is named Frank and he is an integral part of my pack. He is the confidence booster for my other dogs. He is very easygoing, patient, and a great playmate for other pups. My chihuahua mix is named Little Dude and he is extremely fearful of new people. He will not be able to be at meet-and-greets because of this. He adores other dogs and makes very fast friends. He is a very social dog, just not with people he doesn’t see frequently. I am very understanding of fearfulness and the building of trust to help dogs feel more at ease.
