About Al & Laura

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi everyone, my name is Laura and my husband's name is Al! Our life is pretty animal focused and we see our animals as our family, like our own kids. We like to spend most of our free time with our fur kids; hiking, playing, cuddling, etc. Personally, we are not fond of kenneling our animals when we can't take care of them which is what brought us to DogVacay! We want to provide the kind of experience and level of care for other animal families just like we do for our own. We treat all our clients like they are one of pack so that they feel right at home and comfortable whether they are staying with us or we are coming to them.
We have 3 dogs and 1 cat. Our oldest, Foxy, is a sweet 14 year old cattle dog mix with beautiful brindle color fur. She may be a senior dog but no one told her that because she still has a lot of pep in her step! Our second oldest dog, Zeus, is a 10 year old pitbill mix who still thinks and acts like a puppy. He also thinks he's the size of a toy dog and doesn't quite understand when he cannot fit in my lap. They both have been together for about 10 yrs. Our cat ,Ziggy, is our referee for when our dogs start to play too rough. He meows loudly until they stop and boy does it work. Last but not least, we have our newest addition, Lucy. She is a 3 year old beagle with lot of energy that keeps all of us on our toes. She is very vocal when she wants something which be pretty cute. They all are house broken and know their eat and walk schedule. Zeus IS NOT FIXED but, again, he is not aware of this so please let us know first if your pet isn't so we can arrange something.
Our typical day on the weekends is just playing with the dogs and laying around and more playing with the dogs. Our service is great because we have over 15 years of experience with a variety of animals. From taking care of our friends pets and family's pets and also pets we have never met along the way! We have fence in yard and huge area for dogs to run around. We also have a pool in case if your dog loves to swim. Our dogs are still a little wary of the pool but we keep waiting for someone to run and jump on in!
We would love to a second home and family for your babies! Let us know if you have any questions.

It's rare that you find someone who will love and adore your dog as much as you do, but Al and Laura are the exception. My wife and I recently moved to Raleigh and we have no family in the area. When we had an out of state commitment for which we had to leave our dog, Kona, we found ourselves in quite the bind. Because we adopted Kona from a shelter, we really wanted to avoid kenneling her but we were anxious to leave her with people she didn't know. Al and Laura were the answer to our prayers. They took Kona into their home and gave her love, attention, and lots of play. Kona is very energetic and we were ecstatic to see pictures and videos of her playing with other dogs and running around their yard, and impressed to see pictures of her tuckered out and napping the afternoon away! Kona is also very affectionate and loves to cuddle and it warmed our hearts to hear that Kona got lots of opportunity to snuggle up to Al and Laura on the couch. Al and Laura turned the stressful experience of leaving our adored pup into a wonderful weekend during which Kona had fun and felt loved and my wife and I felt at ease knowing she was in good hands. Al and Laura will be our go-to dog sitters from now on and we wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a loving, stimulating environment for their dog.

Al and Laura are awesome hosts! From the many pictures and videos they sent, my little Beau looked like he felt right at home! I highly highly recommend you give them a try, you doggy will be glad you did!
Oliver was so excited when we dropped him off with Al and Laura! He knew exactly where he was and was ready to go play with his buddies. Al & Laura sent lots of pictures and video so we could see just how much fun Ollie was having. It's very comforting knowing your dog is so content where is is staying and not stuck in a kennel all day.
