Lori made our dog, Cooper, immediately feel at home. We appreciated her flexibility on pick up and drop-off and her opening her home to our pup over the holidays. We would definitely use Lori again for a dog vacay!
We are continuing to use Lori to take care of Nala when we are not able to. We have been unable to be home with our dog regularly over this past week, but it is so comforting knowing Nala is being taken care of, thanks to Lori.
Lori helped me out in a bind when 3 other backup plans failed on me. I am SO greatful! Thank you, Lori!
I would recommend Lori to any of my pet owner friends. Our 5-month old puppy was not with anyone else before she spent the night at Lori's. We were nervous, not because we thought Lori wouldn't take of her, but because we thought Nala would give Lori a headache because as a puppy, she doesn't listen reliably. When we picked Nala up, Lori informed us that everything went well. Lori introduced Nala to her dogs, and Nala was still worn out from her play sessions when we got her the next day.

We were especially grateful that Lori slowly introduced her dogs to Nala because she was intimidated of big dogs after a negative incident in puppy class. Lori not only helped Nala enjoy herself, but helped us socialize our dog while we were at work. We are thrilled to have found a pet sitter we can trust in Minneapolis and we will be using her again.
I would use Lori again.
Lori is very reliable.
5 stars.
Lori is extremely patient with my exuberant puppy!
Lori was fantastic and took great care of Angus. She was easy to communicate and coordinate with. I'll for sure book her again!
Great home for pets and the pets there are wonderful as well
We've been so happy to find Lori. Buddy loves going there and it's great to have someone we can trust to take him to.
Lori was wonderful. She has a very calm demeanor and she is super nice. Has a great backyard setup for dogs. I know my dog had a good time.
Riggs loved his stay with Lori! He was exhausted when he returned and I so appreciated the pics of him playing while I was away. As my first time using dogvacay it really calmed my nerves knowing that he was enjoying himself. It was a great experience!
Lori did a wonderful job taking care of my furry buddy! I appreciated getting an update, since I have the same separation anxiety as my pet. I will definitely use Lori again in the near future. Thanks for taking care of my baby!
Lori was very accommodating with our meet-n-greet and the first overnight stay. When I returned to pick up my two dogs, they were very relaxed, had made new friends, and were not all that interested in leaving! Both dogs have twice a day pill, shot, and feeding requirements that make them tough initial guests but I feel that Lori and they did well together. I will definitely use Lori again in the future.
Lori was wonderful with our dog. He's a terrier so he often thinks he's the boss in any situation and she handled it perfectly. Daily pictures were also nice and put us at ease. Lori is clearly an animal lover and I would highly recommend her as a caregiver for your beloved pet.
Lori was great. Would definitely use her again.
We could not feel more comfortable leaving our dog, Thor, will Lori. She is an animal lover! Our dog takes a lot of medication and even has seizures. She welcomes him with open arms and is very responsive when we text for updates when we are away. Highly recommend Lori!
We dropped Finn off at Loris for a day trip. When we got back Finley was completely exhausted! Lori took great care of our high energy pup and her German Shepard must have played with her all day. Finley was noticeably more tired for days afterwards. It was pretty nice.
