Thank you so much for walking Layla and sending reports. She loves her walks and now we can practice what you have been doing with her. We had a great week away knowing she was in good hands! Thanks again!

Laura is a friendly and experienced dog trainer and walker.  She is very knowledgeable with a strong love of animals which is demonstrated in her warm and caring ways while obtaining positive training results.  Laura is reliable, trustworthy and a good communicator.
We were forced into altering our vacation and were very concerned about having to exclude our Labrador pup Winston.  We did not want to put him in a kennel so learned about Laura’s service of Homecheck and Pet Sitting, which covers two walks during the day with overnight service that she provides in your home.  We received several reports each day concerning the activities of Winston each day.  We found the reports were very reassuring and that we made the right decision to leave our pup and our home under her care.
Laura provided the overnight service and Eleanor provided his daytime walks.  Laura and Eleanor made an excellent team.
We are very satisfied about all aspects of the services provided and have made recommendations to others.

We thoroughly recommend HomeCheck & PetCare Services for dog walking and overnight home stays.


Our little white Shih-Poo, Zoe, can take some time to warm up to strangers and we were in the midst of planning our family trip out of the country; we needed to find someone to look after not only our pup, but also our home while we were away. Upon Laura meeting Zoe, Laura was not only patient and accommodating to Zoe’s needs but also provided us with comfort and security that our home would be well looked after. We left with total peace of mind and felt confident leaving things in Laura’s hands. We have not only become extremely thankful for this service but also for the efforts that Laura continues to put forth. Thanks, Laura!

"Laura at HomeCheck & PetCare Services has been an amazing addition to our "team". She seems genuinely happy to see my boys on walk days, and they in turn are always so happy to see her. Reliable, accommodating ,trustworthy and pleasant to work with are just a few of the words I would use to describe Laura. She's been a great help and I know I can count on her, and that when my boys are in  her care, they are both in capable and caring hands. " - Alya

Thank you Laura for taking such good care of Lucky. He was very content. He's such a great dog and a big part of our family so thanks for treating him that way. Thanks again!

We are so lucky to have found Laura. She provides a service that is so helpful to people who love their pet and want them to be treated in a positive and friendly manner. Kai gets so excited when she sees Laura walking up to the house and can't wait to spend some special time with her. She has helped us in many ways and it is always a relief to know that she cares for the welfare of our pet and reinforces the training she has received (sit, stay, wait, walking skills etc.).Laura is always on time, positive, enthusiastic, reliable and responsive. We could not imagine our life without her!

5 stars! I cannot say enough about Laura. I had total peace of mind when on vacation, knowing that my Great Dane, Luna was very well looked after. Laura went above and beyond, caring for my fur baby. Laura's daily updates, photos and videos of Luna gave me total peace of mind. I actually believe Luna didn't even want us back from vacation after Laura took care of her!!!!

Laura Scarfo is an animal's best friend. She is that rare combination of compassion, kindness and skill that makes every pet feel special. Laura's professionalism and high regard for the health and safety of every animal in her care should give pet owners the peace of mind they need when trusting their beloved pet to Laura whether it's for a walk in the park or a pet sitting during a vacation.

Hi Laura,

I wanted to thank you so much for taking such great care of our wonderful cats while we were away. Also thanks for watering my plants I really appreciate it, usually when we get home they're all dried up I will certainly recommend you to friends and family in the future and next holiday we'll be in touch.

"We'd tried kenneling our beloved cat Muffins when we'd gone on vacation before, and she was very unhappy, missing us and familiar surroundings.  Thanks to Laura and Carlos, Muffins could stay in her own home and have friendly faces looking in on her and giving her attention a few times a day.  They made sure she had fresh food, clean litter and as many cuddles as she could handle.  We were also delighted to receive a video update midway through our trip about how our kitty was doing!  It's always tough leaving your pets behind when you jet off to a distant destination, but knowing Laura and Carlos are keeping a watchful, caring eye on them provides that extra peace of mind that you can't put a price on.  We couldn't imagine trusting the treasured furry members of our family to anyone else's care."

Home Check & Pet Care Services was recommended to our family by our veterinarian's office.  We were looking for a kind and compassionate person to take care of our cat during our recent vacation.  Additionally, we needed someone that we could trust to accurately and reliably give Tigger his medication and monitor his general well being.  We were so pleased to have Laura's help over this period.  She spent time with Tigger before we left and ensured that she knew his habits, preferences, and favorite play routines.  Laura updated us with texts, photos and a video while we were away. We appreciated the updates and enjoyed seeing how content Tigger was.  Laura is incredibly thorough and leaves nothing to chance.  We have been happy to recommend Laura to our neighbors and friends.

Thank you so much for caring so well for our cats, we are extremely happy with the care and professionalism of your business and look forward to using the service again!

Laura has been walking my dog Cooper for a while and all I can say is that I have never met someone who is so loving, attentive and caring.  She treats Cooper as if he were her own and that is the type of person that I was looking for.  I have received many helpful tips along the way and I also receive a report on each walk. Dogs are very responsive to human personality and one poignant moment that stuck with me is that the very first time that Laura met Cooper, he fell asleep on her lap.....that said enough! :)

Thank you Laura....you are wonderful.

Laura, we would like to thank you for taking such good care of Brutus, Roxy and Rosie.  We were so glad that our Vet recommended your services.  During our meet and greet Brent and I felt very comfortable knowing you would be staying in our home and taking care of our babies.  Past vacations we had to put them in the Kennel and Brutus and Roxy didn’t do very well so when we found out about your services and then met you and Carlos we felt much better about leaving them at home under your care.  Your love for animals shows, and having the daily updates on how they were doing gave us peace of mine.   Thanks again.
