The Title of the book “Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know” attempts to rectify that situation, exploring what science tells us about dogs without relegating our pets, emotionally, to lab rats.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

"When, I first met Laoise when she was organising the Pedigree Chum Dog spa at Ireland’s first Pet Expo.in 2006. She was utterly professional in her duties and displayed her obvious caring attitude towards dogs and people. From that time I have seen her passion for all animals, their welfare and requirements, but dogs remain her number one focus. Over the years she has shown and developed her knowledge of the breeds and has undertaken studies to improve her understanding of behaviour and training and I have been delighted to help her in her professional development. Her commitment to her new business of OUTPAWS Concierge Services reflects her personality and drive to innovate. She is honest, trustworthy, fun and caring and if her charges could talk they would unanimously agree that with Laoise, Life is more than a walk in the Park."

"Laoise is exceptionally professional in her approach and very kind and caring with Maggie, our puppy. Maggie waits by the gate every day in anticipation of her walk with Laoise and returns home tired and happy after an entertaining and productive hour. Maggie has even begun to behave much better since her walks with Laoise started. I would recommend OUTPAWS to anybody who needs a caring and professional service for their loved pet."

"I can’t even begin to describe how fantastic Laoise is!! From the moment we met her at our initial meeting I knew she was the right choice for us and Alfie absolutely LOVES her! She is a real animal lover with a heart of gold. He loves his OUTPAWS pals and going on his adventures.. he misses her on Saturdays & Sundays and is super excited when Monday rolls around again! I cannot recommend her highly enough. The change I see in Alfie is huge, he is much more content since starting his OUTPAWS walks and has no destructive puppy behaviour anymore because he is getting plenty of exercise & mental stimulation during the day. I wouldn’t leave my furry baby with anyone else!! And the daily photo updates are super cute!"

"Fudge absolutely loves Laoise; she's fantastic and a true dog lover. He sits waiting for her arrival and gets so excited when he sees her, which is very cute to watch! Laoise takes such great care of Fudge, bringing him on a new doggy adventure each day with his pals. This gives us great comfort knowing that he's getting plenty of exercise and interaction with other dogs. We would have no hesitation in recommending Laoise."

"Currently taking a few days abroad and Laoise is walking my 2 dogs who I definitely over obsess about. Laoise is incredible with the dogs and gives me such a peace of mind that they are in the best of care. Laoise keeps me up to speed on pick up and drop off and sends me the most amazing photos of the dogs having the time of their lives on their walks. Cannot recommend this service highly enough. Thank you Laoise."

"Laoise is without doubt the best thing that’s come into Alfie’s life... from squealing down the house when he sees her car pulling up to the look of pure content on his face after their adventures! I’m sure if Alf could talk he’d be sure to tell us he lives for Tuesday’s and Thursday’s!! Amazing service by an amazing dog lover."

"This is a fantastic service - the walks are properly exciting and Marley just loves Laoise so much he can hardly contain himself when she comes to collect him. OUTPAWS has been a godsend when we have been getting work done in the house or on days when he would otherwise spend a long period of time on his own. Highly recommended."

"OUTPAWS is without doubt the best dog walking service in Dublin! Laoise has been so friendly and lovely to deal with since the start. There has been weeks, where we’ve had to change what days Manny goes with Laoise at short notice or we’ve had to ask for an extra day and it’s never a problem. Manny loves meeting up with his gang and heading off on their adventures. I never feel guilty leaving when I go to work because I know he’ll get plenty of exercise with the gang. We get regular messages with pick up and drop back times and then a few pictures of what the gang got up to on their adventure which always brings a smile to my face when I’m stuck in the office. I would have no hesitation in recommending OUTPAWS to anyone looking for an excellent dog walking service! Great job Laoise."

"For the past 11 months, Laoise & OUTPAWS walks have been providing us with an invaluable service for our 2 year old yorkie Milo, bringing him on daily walks and excursions. The service is so much more than simple dog walking, however. Laoise understands and loves every dog she looks after and each walk and doggie group is tailored and varied each day. Not only that, but we’re kept up to date on Milo’s daily walks with pictures and stories of how he got on. Laoise has also provided us with invaluable tips about Milo’s diet and temperament, showing she really cares and knows her stuff."

"Laoise provides an excellent dog walking service. She is incredibly good with dogs, clearly loves them and won our Suzy’s heart very quickly. Laoise is flexible and focuses on you and your dog’s specific needs. She really does provide a very personal service and I feel I have known her for a long time. I have no hesitation in recommending Laoise for walking your dog."

"Laoise is an incredible dog walker. She is warm and friendly and very professional. Our dog Mischko loves hanging out with her and the gang and always comes back wrecked after a long run! She posts all walks on Instagram and it's great to see the fun your dog is having with his four legged friends. Couldn't recommend her highly enough!"

"I don’t have the right words to describe how thankful I am for Laoise! My dog Boncuk is spending 3 days a week with Laoise‘s day care and Boncuk can’t contain her excitement every time she sees Laoise who takes her on wonderful walks on the beach and plenty of supervised playtime with other OUTPAWS woofs. Laoise truly loves dog and I trust her 100% with my Boncuk. She only wants what’s best for the dogs and I’d highly recommend her without a doubt!"

"Laoise, thank you for your amazing job with Toto for already more than a year as your day-care doggie from google. After I've found you on Pawshake, there has never been any doubt of Toto having the best time with you and the whole OUTPAWS gang."

"I have never been able to leave my dogs at kennels...I just wouldn’t be able to relax knowing that the experience could be extremely stressful for my boys, especially as one of them is of a nervous disposition. Therefore, I went looking for a pet sitter and found Laoise from OUTPAWS. Laoise has dog-sat my two senior boys several times now and I’ve been able to enjoy my holiday knowing that their every need, including medical requirements, are taken care of. Laoise sends regular updates with pictures and I’m never surprised to see that the boys have welcomed her into their home whilst quickly claiming her lap and sharing cuddles! If you want your furry babies to feel safe and loved while you’re away, without the upheaval and stress of being in a new environment, then Laoise from OUTPAWS is your person!"

"Our pupps Laoise!!! We were super nervous pet parents new to Dublin from the US and were very worried about finding someone new here to mind our beloved fur babies. Meeting Laoise put our minds at ease. She was so open to our special requests and very communicative about the pups' activities while also being a lovely, considerate, trustworthy guest in our home. We're excited about all the new travel possibilities. THANK YOU, LAOISE!!!"
