bandit11After many years as a Senior Document Control Specialist, Snaggle Foot franchise owner Laurie Byrd decided to shift careers and spend her days caring for the pets in Lake County as a Snaggle Foot pet sitter and dog walker.

Laurie has been the owner of Snaggle Foot Round Lake since September 2009. Winner of the 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2017 Best of Round Lake Award and the winner of 2016 Daily Herald Readers Choice Award in the Pet Sitting Category. Laurie and her employees strive to provide the best pet care services to the pet parents in the Northern Illinois region.

As a member of the Chamber of Commerce, she is heavily involved in community activities and can often be found at local pet-related events and functions. Laurie has been the loving owner of a multitude of pets over the years, and is now parent to Bandit, who was adopted through a local rescue in May of 2015. “My animals are like my children and get nothing but the best care and love. Clients of Snaggle Foot can expect no less!”

When she isn’t working, Laurie enjoys spending time with her husband going to movies, reading, cooking, and enjoying the all-too-brief summers of northern Illinois on the back of a Harley Davidson. Her spare time has also been filled with many travels, including trips overseas to see the Notre Dame Cathedral and Louvre Museum.
