About Laurence

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My Name is Laurence and would love to help you and your best pal! I offer a variety of service and my kids would also like to meet some new friends! For boarding would prefer smaller dogs, but will not rule out larger pooches. If your pal stays with us they will be in great hands and have fun. Long walks in the Parks are my kids favorite! We look forward to having your pet!

***NOTE*** Pick ups after 3 PM on the last day will have an additional Daycare cost added.

Holidays: Holiday rate is $45.00 per day per dog. No discount is given during holidays.
The following Holidays are observed: New Year’s Eve & Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day (Fourth of July), Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve & Day

Laurence did a great job! Will defintely use him again. Thanks!
Laurence was very flexible with our ever-changing flight times... so drop-off and pick-up was incredibly easy. My dogs were happy to see us and happy to have had a great dog-sitter!
Dogs had a great time.
My two pups stayed with Laurence over Christmas holiday. This was our first time using a petsitter and my husband and I were a bit nervous. Laurence was wonderful with my two pups! From the moment we dropped them off, he took them for a walk to get acclimated with the neighborhood. He updated me daily with pics of them which showed they were enjoying themselves. They were happy pups when we picked them up! We will definitely use Laurence's services again the next time we're out of town. Thank you Laurence!
Laurence is very friendly and kind. He took care of Snickers and several other dogs without a hitch! Thank you!
Laurence was wonderful! So accommodating and took great care of my guys! He sent me pictures to let me know how they were doing and was super flexible with my drop off and pick up time. Will definitely call him again!
Chewbacca was well taken care of. Laurence kept us updated with photos and videos. Highly recommended.
Laurence was great taking care of our Nixie. We will definitely use his services again, thanks.
Laurence did a fantastic j
Laurence is a great host. Very easy to work with.
Laurence was friendly and accommodating. We asked on short notice for two young and active dogs, and Laurence handled them expertly. Highly recommend.
Laurence has been great. I know that Carly is well cared for when she stays with Laurence.
Laurence was very accomodating and flexible with the drop off/pickup timings. Loofy had a great time with Laurence and his family.
I was really happy with my dog vacay with Laurence. He was able to take care of my dog, Goose, who is a bit skittish. Goose is also still working on potty training and I was relieved that Laurence was able to work with him to continue that training. Laurence was friendly, very understanding when I was running late for the drop off, and gave me peace of mind while I was on my trip.
Jet loved his time spent with Laurence, especially his walks:)
Outstanding care of my Yorkshire Terrier! I was a little apprehensive when I dropped off my little dog with Laurence who already had two large dogs in his care. I needn't have worried, Laurence had everything under control and he expertly managed the three very different dogs so that each one was comfortable and happy. In fact, Laurence and his wonderful family gave my little dog so much love and attention that he didn't even miss me and he was quite nonchalant when I picked him up! Thanks again Laurence, we'll definitely be back.
It was super easy with Laurence. I dropped Pixel off with all of her stuff. I received a couple of photos while I was gone, which I really appreciated. He was understanding when bad traffic had me arriving at a later time for pick up. I got everything back in the same condition I had left it with him. Pixel was happy and good to go. He told me that Pixel had a food aggression and just suggested that if I leave her again with other dogs to let the person know she should be fed separately; not a big deal. I would leave Pixel with him again.
Bella was well taken care of and I would highly recommend Laurence.
Laurence was great with Bruin and easy to work with as well. He sent pictures so we could see Bruin playing with his new pup friends, so cute! I know Bru enjoyed himself because he came home super tired. We will definitely use Laurence again to take care of our pup!
Sally came back to us healthy and happy! Thanks for taking such good care of her. We will be back.
He was amazing! He took care of my puppy. They sent me pictures and gave me full details of her transition. Thank you so much
In the past we've taken our dog, Copper, to a pet hotel but after he came back limping and depressed we decided to try DogVacay. Laurence and his son took great care of Copper. When we arrived for drop off they were going on a walk. Usually he gets separation anxiety but he was so excited he didn't even care that we were driving away. We came home to a happy and exhausted pup who obviously had a great time.
My first time using this site, and sitter. From what I could tell, he treated my Tyson as if he was his own. Tyson was well cared for and tired after his stay with Laurence, which is a good thing. I do appreciate that he was able to take him for the weekend, and will use his services agian in the future.
We had a lovely experience with Laurence! He was great with our dog Zoey and I could tell she was well taken care of and really enjoyed her time. Laurence was very responsive and would send us pictures and updates which we appreciated. Also Laurence's son Gavin is the cutest and Zoey slept in his bed each night which is a bonus for her. :) I would highly recommend Laurence.
Laurence was a wonderful host to our sweet guy, Tucker. I know he treated him like his own while we were away. It feels so good to have a go to person to care for our dog when we want to go away and can't take him. Thanks so much Laurence!
Laurence and his kids are awesome! We felt comfortable almost immediately upon meeting for our meet and greet and never had a doubt about leaving Rocky with them. He sent pictures and it was obvious Rocky was enjoying himself. Will be using him again!
This was our first experience with Dogvacay and more than pleased with our experience. I thank Laurence and his family for taking such great care of Cosmo and look forward to the next opportunity!
Tucker had a great time at Laurence place.
Laurence and his family took care of our dogs over Thanksgiving break. Not only did he take them in at the last minute he took care of them like they were his own. He gave them excercise and love, fed them and cleaned them up. His children were sweet and kind with the dogs too. So happy I could give the pups a good, safe place to spend Thanksgiving and can't thank Laurence enough for taking such good care of them.
Our dog Tucker loved his visit with Laurence and his family last weekend. Laurence and his family treated Tucker with love and care, just as much as he gets at home. Tucker said he is looking forward to his next visit there.
It was the first vacation I have taken where I felt completely at ease leaving our pooch behind. Lawrence knows his borders well and their little nuances as he introduced us to some of the other dogs. Tetley came home and got adjusted very quickly, he was eating his food with relish, which he had not been doing prior to his 2 week visit with Lawrence. Tetley was quite at home with Lawrence and kids, and I would be happy to have him board with them again!
We left our 5 month old puppy with Laurence and his family for 10 days. Laurence was very accommodating for drop off and pick up. He was very responsive to emails during our trip and he also sent photos of our puppy while with him. Duke was happy when we picked him up and tired which means he had plenty of activity while there. We will definitely use Laurence for future trips.
Yoda enjoys staying with Laurence.
Outstanding, Charlie had a great stay!
Laurence and his family did an amazing job with our dog. What a wonderful service. Cannot say enough good things. Our dog probably cannot wait for our next vacation!
Rosie had an awesome stay with Laurence and his 2 helpful kids. He was very accommodating and flexible. We loved getting his texts and pictures. She was worn out from playing with the other dogs. We are all glad to be home together. Thank you so much, Laurence.
My dog was very happy to stay with Laurence. We will continue to use his services.
