About Me

***Hello current clients as well as potential clients! I will putting a hold on watching dogs for a couple months while I get adjusted to my grooming schedule. I'm available to contact anytime to see if I can squeeze you in for a sit, but I will be taking a step back from focusing specifically on just sitting. Thank you so much for understanding and have a fantastic day!"
You Had Me At Woof, a kennel free place, is now taking pet sitting reservations! I only allow 2 dogs (besides residence) maximum in home so your pet will get plenty of attention 24/7. Whether sitting in my home or yours, I keep your pet on YOUR schedule. Your pet is never kenneled and treated like part of the family. When it's bedtime they have the option of 3 beds, including my own bed! How's that for customer service! Walks always included!

I also offer dog walking services and training! No breed restrictions!

I live in a two story town home in beautiful San Clemente. There is an outdoor area for dogs can enjoy sunning themselves. There is currently one CGC certified 5 year old dog and one 5 month old CGC in training puppy living here.

Since this is my profession I am home majority of the day unless I'm out training clients or a short trip to the grocery store. For those that request I will even take one on one time for your dog for obedience training.

I even offer fun weekend activities such as hikes, trips to the beach, and dog parks to pre-approved dogs (or my regular clients)! And don't worry, if your dog would rather relax at home and snooze all day; I can do that too!

Great news! Since so many clients have inquired about grooming for so many years I have enrolled in grooming school and will soon be offering full grooming packages, stay tuned

Photos are of both the old house, and my current location.

I service clients as far as Santa Monica to San Diego and am willing to help you out. With that being said I can offer pick ups and drop offs that far as well because I understand it's hard to find a good sitter and I've offered this to many of my clients who have moved and won't change sitters. I'm even willing to help you out and meet halfway or offer to meet at airports etc. I go above and beyond for my clients! Just cover my time and gas.

*Attention Doggy Owners* Make sure your pets are flea treated for the season this year. It's been a bad one and it's been hard on the sitters this year! I recommend Comfortis plus! It's been especially effective this year. I get zero royalties saying this, so you know it works! If you're one of my clients, please make sure your dog is treated before entering my house or there will be an extra charge for a flea bath!

Below are some reviews of Lauren S from real dog owners who have used their services on!

Average Rating:
  • Lauren definitely knows dogs! She was a wonderful host to my dog over the Thanksgiving holiday as I headed up to the Northridge area. I didn't opt for the "meet and greet" since I live down in San Diego, but instead trusted things would work out based on all her positive reviews...and they did! My dog had a blast with her dog, Noir, and I could tell from the pictures she sent, he was totally at home in her place. I highly recommend Lauren for her vast knowledge in dog care, her warm personality and her commitment and love of dogs.

  • Leo had a great time with Lauren. I can tell she truely is a dog lover. Leo gets a little too excited with other dogs, he may need some training. Perhaps we can discuss this in the future. Thank you for all you do.

  • Lauren was great! She was very accommodating with our last minute booking. Iko & Blondie had a great time there, we would definitely use her again. She had us at Woof!

  • My Ridgeback was a neglected rescue I obtained three yrs ago. He had become extremely attached to me and we were never separated before. He still has some issues and I'm sure he was high maintenance for a first time separation of ten days. I couldn't have asked for a better host to care for Carson

  • Lauren was very responsive to our last minute request to watch Sasha. She worked around our schedule and took very good care of Sasha. She sent photos and gave updates, even though it was a short visit. We appreciated knowing Sasha was in good hands!! I give her high marks all the way around and would highly recommend her to anyone.

  • Lauren was great... we loved the pictures that she sent during our dog's weekend stay. The end-of-stay wrap up that Lauren sent was also appreciated. We will definitely do this again!

  • I can't say enough about the experience we had with Lauren from You Had Me at Woof! I would like to rate here a 5 in Responsiveness of Host, Value for Money and Overall Rating. She is a pleasure to deal with and Spunky had a great time. We were out of the Country and didn't have to worry at all. Glad to have found the DogVacay website and especially happy to find You Had Me at Woof!
