About Al & Laura

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi everyone, my name is Al and my wife's name is Laura, we have 3 dogs and 1 cat. Our oldest is Foxy, she is a mixed cattle dog with a beautiful brindle color fur, she is 13yrs old and very sweet. Our second oldest dog is Zues and he's 9yrs old. But he acts like a puppy still, they both have been together for about 8yrs. Our cat Ziggy is our referee for when our dogs start to get to loud when they play. Ziggy meows loud until they stop and it works. Last but not least we have our newest addition, Lucy, she is a beagle and is going to be 3 yrs old in a few months. She has alot of energy that keeps all of us on our toes. She is very vocal when she wants something which is so cute. They all are house broken and know there eat and walk schedule. ZUES IS NOT FIXED so please let us know first if your pet isn't so we can arrange something. Our typical day on the weekends especially is just playing with the dogs and laying around and more playing with the dogs. Our service is great because we have alot of experience with other dogs. From taking care of our friends pets and family's pets. And also pets we have never met. 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 jump in pools. Our dogs are still kind of scared. So let us be the place to be for your pets, let us know if you have any questions.

Amazing! We have asked Al and Laura to watch our two guys numerous times and we are never let down. They take amazing care of them, and send us plenty of pictures and videos to let us see how much fun they are having. Their dogs are extremely sweet and get along perfectly with ours. As soon as we leave they just want to go back! Would highly recommend Al and Laura to anyone who is looking for someone to treat their dogs as if they were their own. Will definitely be booking with them again!

Al and Laura were so warm and welcoming when we dropped our Boxer off before going out of town. Their big backyard was perfect for dogs! We don't have any kids and our dog is our baby and we didn't worry for one minute being all the way across the country for a vacation! They sent us pictures and videos that assured us she was doing great and we knew how much they loved dogs and that she was getting well taken care of! Our dog especially loved their larger dog, Zues, and we were glad she had nice playmates! We will definitely ask them to watch our dog again in the future and can't thank them enough for being so awesome!!!

Al and Laura are great! They helped me when I needed a sitter at the last minute and made me feel comfortable with leaving Dak with them. They are obvious animal lovers and it didn't take Dak, who is very shy, long to warm up to them and their 3 pups and kitten. They sent pics and video daily and were genuinely saddened to see Dak leave. I would recommend them in a heartbeat and will be taking Dak back again and again...

I highly recommend Al & Laura and will definitely book with them again in the future! I usually dread vacations because I don't like boarding my pet but I was actually excited for him to be in their care! He was taken in as one of their own and had a blast playing with their sweet dogs!

Our pup, Palmer, had an awesome time! Al and his wife went over the top on everything. We had to drop him off early and pick him up late and they didn't mind one bit. Palmer was nervous at first when we arrived but within seconds warmed up to them and their dogs. Their backyard is perfect for dogs to run around, explore, and play. We were sent pictures and videos throughout the day which helped us have a peace of mind that Palmer was ok. We highly recommend this team!d

Al and Laura were very flexible in scheduling our first meet & greet. They spent quality time introducing each of their resident pups to mine, going over everything to ease my nerves. Throughout the stay, I received a ton of updates and cute pictures. They really did take great care of my baby and I will definitely be using them again in the future!

This was our second time leaving our dogs with Al and Laura and our experience, yet again, was awesome!! We contacted them when we were in a pinch and they were more than accommodating! We are so lucky to have found them! Both our dogs love going there and as soon as we drop them off they are off to the races so excited to play with Al and Laura's dogs and run around their big back yard! When we pick them up they are always sad to leave, but also tired from all the playing and take long naps when they get home! Thank you again Al and Laura for the wonderful care you provided!

Toniea,
Al and Laura are great with my animals. I have 3 dogs and they are a handful. Especially Django who enjoys tearing things up at times. He did this several times while Laura and Al was helping to watch them. Great response time whenever you contact them. They sent lots of pictures of my babies while I was gone and had lots of patience. We had a great experience with them. I would definitely use them again anytime I need to have my babies taken care of.

We could not be any happier with our experience with Al and Laura this past weekend!! We did a quick meet and greet a week prior to our dog's stay to make sure our dogs got along with theirs and they adjusted very quickly to each other! Their dogs are very well behaved and loved having new friends. While we were gone, we received many video and picture updates the entire time and it made us feel so at ease, you don't get the same attention at any boarding facility we have tried. They treated our pups as if they were their own and they played hard in their big backyard (fenced in) and in the house! It is truly a dog's sanctuary and we will absolutely be bringing our pups back! I highly recommend Al and Laura to anyone looking for a safe and fun environment for their dogs while out of town!!

Al and Laura are wonderful people and for sure animal lovers, their house is beautiful and 100% pet friendly, their pets are super friendly too and love to give kisses
Al was quick to respond to my request and he was very helpful in answering all of my questions about our dog's stay. Over the weekend he sent me several pictures of our dog and it looked like he was having a blast! We will definitely be using him again in the future.

Al and Laura were absolutely wonderful with our dog Otis. We received daily photos, videos and text updates so we always knew how he was doing. I tend to worry when I am not with Otis but with Al and Laura I was able to relax knowing that Otis was happy, healthy and having a great time.

We ran into some travel issues and ended up getting home a day later than scheduled but Al and Laura were so understanding and accommodating. They are genuinely kind people and very affectionate towards animals, your pet will be loved and cared for!

Al and Laura have 3 dogs: Foxy, Lucy and Zues. They are all sweet and Otis had such a fun time playing with them. As excited as Otis was to see us when we picked him up he was sad to leave his new friends.

We will definitely use Al and Laura again, I know Otis will be excited to see them next time!
