We’re all about dog park adventures and petcare 

What we do:

Dogs en Route can help you keep your peace of mind (and patience). 

We successfully socialize and exercise your new dog with park trips, where your dog will be in a ‘pack’ of confident, playful, and  friendly dogs! 

Positive reinforcement is our key pedagogy.

Pet Sitting

In home petsitting with free cuddles.

Hi, I’m Lauri!

I have been a Seattle dog walker for 14 years and I absolutely love this work! I take my pack of dogs to a variety of dog parks such as Magnuson,  Northacres, Golden Gardens and sometimes in summer we head to Jose Rizal for a change of pace. Monday through Friday we are walking, playing, and socializing with the goal of tiring every dog out!

I strongly believe in positive reinforcement. I use treats, attention, and special toys, to reward desired behavior, as well as to redirect attention from unwanted behavior. 

Your dogs well being is of the utmost importance to me. I like us all to be enjoying ourselves and each other!

Service Area

Our service area includes the neighborhoods of Ballard, Blue Ridge, Crown Hill, Fremont, Greenwood, Greenlake, Phinney Ridge, Ravenna, Roosevelt, U District, Wallingford and Wedgewood. Unfortunately, we do not cross bridges to service Capitol Hill, Magnolia or Queen Anne.

What Our Clients Have To Say

Lauri has been taking care of our dogs for over five years – so long that it feels like she is a member of the family! There is no one we would rather have spending time with them. She truly cares for our dogs as if they were her own and our dogs are absolutely obsessed with her!


Lauri is the best! She has been taking our dog, Charlie, to the dog park for the last three years and he absolutely loves her — and so do we. She picks him up directly from our apartment and as soon as she opens the door, he goes racing out because he’s so excited to see her.


We ran into Lauri with her pack at Magnuson Park one weekend. Our dog, Lulu, immediately recognized Lauri and tore off after her to play with her and the other dogs. For a dog who is generally pretty mellow and stays close to her owners, we were pleasantly amused to see that she had bonded so much with Lauri.


We can’t imagine our lives without Lauri! She takes the best care of our pup and we couldn’t be happier. Our dog is always so excited and happy when she returns from the park and sleeps for the rest of the day. I love how all the dogs become best friends! Lauri has gone above and beyond and it shows with how happy our pup is.
