About Laurie

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
PLEASE READ MY NEW UPDATE!!!
I am temporarily blocking my calendar from May 15th, 2017 going forward til July 1st due to moving to Delavan, Wisconsin (by Lake Geneva). I will continue to board dogs and will also be breeding AKC Labrador's. We have a 10 acre farm with lots of room to run! Fenced in area provided.
When my schedule permits, I will try to assist with travel/transport to new location for those of you from Illinois who want to continue to board with me. As always, your dog will be our "house pet" and get lots of individual attention.

PROFILE (to be updated soon with new address and descriptions)
My name is Laurie and my family is well experienced with dogs. I have a few years of vet tech experience, have been a nurse for 35 years, and have fostered/rescued at least 40 dogs over the last several years. Many of the adopted dogs come back for our family to dog sit while the new owners vacation. We love it so much we want to expand our services to others who need a temporary loving home for their dog(s). Our backyard is just the right size for a good run around and the toys in the doggie toy box are usually overflowing.
Currently working from home allows me generous time to care for each dog's needs. In most cases, I only care for a few families pets at a time so they get that same personalized care you would have given them. I look forward to meeting you all.

Laurie is so kind and nice and my yorkie Tilly took to her right away at the meet and greet. When we went for our first visit she was excited to get inside her place and play with all the dog toys. During my travels I got daily pictures and texts on her well-being.

Laurie was awesome! My dog had a great time at her home and had fun with two other dogs she was sitting. Would definitely book again!
Molly had a wonderful stay at Laurie's and came home happy. Laurie and Mike took such good care of Molly. Laurie is very sweet and loving and Molly knew from the first minute she met Laurie that they would be good friends. Laurie's house is dog friendly with lots of doggie toys and Molly had free rein of the house. We are so glad we found Laurie on DogVacay and will definitely want Molly to stay with her the next time we go away.
