Roo Dog is a local professional pet care business that is owned and operated solely by women

As Laura once said...

"dog hair is not a choice, it is a lifestyle"

Officially open for business as of July 2018


Hello, I'm Laura and I want to become your dog's new favorite auntie

A few random facts about who I am:

I was born and raised in Melbourne Australia, but I do not have the accent. I have my BFA in Graphic Design. I have an addiction to fuzzy blankets. Cheese is my favorite food, and I enjoy a good fruited sour beer, any time!

I am someone who spends every moment around animals and I wouldn't have it any other way. My official career with canines began in 2012 in an upscale high-volume doggy daycare and boarding facility in Boston, MA. During my time working there I created many important relationships with local rescues and found a passion for fostering and volunteering when I could. From this relationship I eventually rescued my own southern shelter dog, Roo the German Shepherd mix.

And from there, Roo Dog was created

I am a real person who has excellent references available upon request to anyone. I am considered to be extremely trustworthy, reliable, dependable, and most of all honest about your pets. I personally have over 10 years experience in caring for and walking dogs, I am CPR and first aid certified, and I am fully insured and bonded

(as are all of the Roo Dog walking ladies)

Roo Dog is also a supporter of local rescues and shelters and we will often donate our time, products and services to those in need
