"Laurel and her team genuinely care about their 4 legged clients and treat them as their own.  My dogs were always much happier on the days they got their walks, and I was happier knowing they weren't cooped up in the house all day.  One of my dogs was diagnosed with cancer and Laurel was almost as upset as I was, which was really touching.  It showed me that this isn't just a business to her, she does it because she genuinely loves it.  That's a rarity to find these days and I am glad that I did!" - Marna Palmer (Sadie's mom)

"Laurel, Mark and team are absolutely fantastic! My co-worker referred me to Laurel and I have been working with her for the last two and half years. Her and her team are great to work with, extremely professional and very reasonably priced compared to other dog walkers in the area. All the dog walkers are extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, caring and fun. Also, Laurel is very accommodating with my schedule as it is always changing with work and last minute trips. I have referred other co-workers to her as well and they all rave about how great the service is. I know my dog looks forward to his afterrnoon walks with his neighborhood friends. All payment is done online through a secured website so it's easy and eco-friendly! I highly recommend them!!! - Amanda F. (Charlies mom)

Victoria has been a part of our family for 3 years now.  She has never once missed a day.  She's extremely reliable, friendly, caring and thorough.  She loves Bailey like he is her own dog and we love her like she is our family.  Bailey and I ran into her randomly at Rite Aid one day and he recognized her across the store and went bananas for her!!! You can tell that he loves her just as much as she loves him.  I appreciate the daily text messages and weekly photos.  We've kept a journal for 3 years now and she journals how long she's had him, what they did, who they played with, and if he went #2! She really is the best thing that has EVER happened to us. - Cat S. (Bailey's mom)
I just moved to the area and this was my first time using a pet-sitting service.  In the past my animals have been looked after by veterinary technicians that I worked with and knew well, and I was very apprehensive to leave my 2 cats for 5 days in the hands of a stranger.  However from the initial email I sent to ask about the service all the way through my return home, Laurel and her associate Todd took steps to establish a comfortable relationship with me and with my cats.  The ease of the online scheduling program and the fast replies from Laurel made me sure of her professionalism and the time Todd took to come and meet us all before my trip made me feel very comfortable with the situation.  Since he would be caring for bitchy cats, he had a calm first visit in which he allowed the cats to come explore him on their own time and did not rush the meeting.  He asked questions about their personalities that indicated his intention to actually pay some attention to them, not just throw them some food.  During my trip Todd texted me everyday just to give a heads-up he had been by the house and that everything was fine.  I wasn't obligated to leave whatever I was doing when I received the texts but it went a long way to put my mind at ease that my cats were alive and well.  When I returned home, Todd had left the lights on, all the mail was inside stacked up, the litter was so clean the house didn't smell, and most of all, the cats were just fine.  I guess cats are so independent, you never really know what's on their mind...but they certainly seemed their regular selves, stress-free.  Moreover, I will definitely be using this service in the future and I cannot express enough how professional, friendly, and competent Laurel and Todd are.  I assume the rest of her associates have equal compassion for pets and their people.
"Thank goodness I found them! Todd is our dog walker and he is fantastic. In over 2 years of 5 walks a week, he has never missed a day! He communicates really well...I always know how my dogs are doing. He handles my 2 large, energetic shepherds gently yet firmly and completely pampers my little papillon (he lifts him over the puddles on the walk so his feet don't get dirty). He gives them so much love and the dogs adore him. Pet Care LA has also provided great pet sitting. Even when I'm away on a long trip, I feel comfortable and relieved knowing someone is taking such good care of my dogs (AND my 3 demanding cats.)" – Debby (Sunny, Harlow and Murray’s mom)
Last week I had to go to the hospital and asked Victoria if she could poke her nose in on the boyz. Needless to say my schedule didn't go according to schedule and she came twice, cooked soup, left a blooming Hyacinth...if I go on I will cry. She is AMAZING...... - Patti R. (dogs: Frank and Beans)
I just wanted to let you know that Victoria was amazing. And really went beyond the call of duty. We got stranded by the hurricane and weren't able to get back to LA until today. She continued to look after my little guys. - Darrin B.
"We have used several pet sitters for our 2 dogs over the years and these guys are the best.  They are very trustworthy, consistent, and great with big dogs.  Excellent service for both daily walks and overnight sitting." - Chad O. (Chip and Odie's dad)
"We've used Pet Care LA for a couple of years -- they've walked and sat our energetic and unruly boxers and are absolutely the greatest...  Todd and Laurel are caring, trustworthy and fantastic with our dogs. I'd recommend them to anyone." - Duncan P. (Bruno and Lola's dad)
"I've used Laurel and her team several times now, while traveling - we like people to stay the night for our menagerie of dogs, birds,    chickens, fish and more - they are VERY detail-oriented, the dogs love them, and I feel safe and confident with them living our home while we're away. Huge recommendation. Their rates seem fair too." - Paul and Rick (The Bee, Cooper and Josie's Dads)
Laurel and Mark are a great team. We had a good vibe about them from the get go. The initial interview with us and our dog Harper was prompt and friendly. It's a big responsibility to have someone looking after your pet, let alone a stranger coming into your house, but Laurel and Mark were very professional and put us at ease immediately getting to know Harper and providing references. With their great instincts, love and patience they have helped to improve Harper's walking skills!!!They also left a brief diary entry of what happened on each walk that we really liked too. Pet Care LA is a fantastic resource for us, I can rely on them to walk Harper in the day which is a great weight off our minds. I would highly recommend them as a dog walking service to anyone! - Will (Harper's dad)
We have spent years trying to find a responsible, caring person/s to look after our 3 cats & 2 dogs while away.  We found okay people and good people, but not AMAZING people.  Until now - Laurel is the ultimate in professional as well as loving service to your animals.  For the first time ever, our animals were not at all stressed or haggard looking when we returned home after 10 days. They just looked at us like 'yeah, so what - you're back!'  In fact, our dog trainer referred us to Laurel and her and Mark worked with our trainer & 'chihuahua with issues' during our absence.  Our house was in terrific shape when we returned - I felt completely confident and secure knowing that they were there.  Laurel & Co. are trustworthy, affordable and fantastic at communication.  I was never worried - and that's a first!  Their online system is also incredibly convenient, I love it.  There is no one better!!! - Tiina T.
