Welcome to Laura’s Little Lodgers
I run a very personal bed and biscuit business for small dogs at Laura’s Little Lodgers with the aim of giving all my little visitors as much love and attention as they would receive when they are at home with their owners.
I dog sit small dogs in my home and all my four legged little guests have free run of my house and totally enclosed back garden and they are allowed to sleep wherever their owner requests – which is usually with me!
After being contacted by a prospective new dog’s owners who would like me to dog board their pet, I invite them and their dog round for an initial visit, in order to see that we all get on and their dog likes the look of their dog holiday home and I then complete a booking form with them noting all their pet’s special requirements. If their dog is then booked in for dog minding for longer than an overnight stay on the first visit, I tend to have their pet to stay for 24 hours, so that the dog is more relaxed on its longer follow up stay.
I have always loved being around dogs, having grown up with two wonderful family pets throughout my childhood. Firstly, Hunter a glorious Pyrenean Mountain dog that came with the purchase of the family home, who was a local celebrity in Marlow for walking down to the local butchers and across the zebra crossing, with all cars stopping in amazement, in order to get some treat or other to bring the 2 miles home or regularly calling in to the famous Compleat Angler Hotel by the river for any titbits that were on offer.

Tonight I start my first Rover.com puppy sitting! He is a mini labradoodle. His parents are taking their children on spring break to Florida, so I will have him for 1 1/2 weeks….I am so looking forward to this! Should be exciting around our house for the next week or so! 🙂 Laura’s Little Lodgers…you were my inspiration to do this ! Knowing that there is no where other than kennels around this area, I decided to offer my home! 🙂

Thank you for the wonderful care & times you have given Hector, I have always left him with confidence that he will settle & not think twice about me!.
Kind regards & a sloppy lick from Hector!

Laura could not take better care of Tiffany who I never worry about when I leave her with her. Could not recommend her more for the personal service and dedication

Thanks so much for the photos they are wonderful. Thank you also so much for looking after Oscar so well – he seems very happy – we went for a long run on the Common this afternoon with my cousin and her cockapoo so he is now having a sleep.
Will let you know when I’ve set up the Facebook page.
Hope you have a great week-end and see you as arranged in November.
In the meantime, once again, a very big thank you for all your care with Oscar I am most appreciative.

Thank you so much once again, Laura for taking such good care of our Cockerpoo, Jenson. It is evident when we collect him how well he has been cared for and he looks so happy and healthy. You really have a natural way with dogs and Jenson was very excited to see you again, when we left him with you.
You treat all the dogs as if they are your own, with lots of love, affection and play time, and they are able to live comfortably in your home too.
Jenson will definitely be visiting again soon. Thanks again.

Laura is the best dog sitter/boarder in the business. She dedicates all her time to loving, caring and giving 100% attention to all the dogs in her care. Highly recommended.

My wife and I would just like to thank you again for taking such wonderful care of our two dogs Lenny & Lola. They obviously had a wonderful time during their stay with you and have returned home very happy and relaxed. We will recommend you to all our friends and family. Thank you so much.

How fortunate we were to hear about Laura and her “little lodgers”. We moved to Marlow from the US and rely on Laura to keep our dog Theo when we travel. When we arrive, Theo races ahead to see Laura and the other friends under her care. He is obviously very happy to stay with her. Laura is quick to respond to requests and keeps us updated while we are away. We love the pictures! Our family in the States remark that the big winner in our move to the UK is Theo!
