Laura Mae started The Pet’s Home in the early 1990’s on a part-time basis while also working her corporate job. When Laura Mae and her husband moved to Plainfield in 2003, Laura recognized the need for in home pet care in the rapidly growing community. She left her job to make The Pet’s Home her full time passion and has never looked back. The Pet’s Home has experienced rapid growth over the past decade and now services hundreds of clients with the help of four additional dedicated pet sitters who share Laura’s love of pets. In addition to Plainfield, The Pet’s Home now services Naperville, Oswego, Shorewood, Montgomery, Joliet and Bolingbrook.
Laura is insured, bonded, first aid and CPR Trained and can also administer medications. In addition to those skills, Laura is now certified in Dog Training through Animal Behavioral College, a natural extension considering her uncanny connection with dogs. Laura can assist with aggression, begging, potty training and much more. Laura has never met a dog she has not loved and has not loved her in return. Her pets become so engrained in her life that a client’s Yellow Lab, Bella actually walked Laura down the aisle at her wedding.
The Pet’s Home is now looking to take the next step in providing exceptional pet care and is working with a consulting firm to establish a brick and mortar Dog Day Care business – The Pet’s Home Resort. In talking to clients Laura heard their dismay at the current “warehouse style” of local dog day care and kennels. The Pet’s Home Resort will feature suites and sound baffles to keep the noise to a minimum which in turn minimizes stress. The Pet’s Home Resort will offer additional services such as boarding, day care, grooming and dog training. Of course, the in-home pet sitting business will not go away, because as we know…pets are always more comfortable at home.
