About Lara

We are a happy, young couple, living in a spacious 1 BR apartment in the heart of the West Village/Greenwich Village, with several dog parks in the area. We are both previous dog owners and currently dog lovers.

I grew up in PA with a St. Bernard and a St. Bernese Mountain Dog. I also rode horses and had two cats. I have a strong affection for animals and a natural connection with animals. My family currently has two St. Bernards, a boy and young (but large!) girl. Ryan grew up with a Miniature Schnauzer and Cocker Spaniel, and later on a Beagle. He has trained every dog that his family has owned.

We are also proud owners of a beautiful 10 mth old female rottweiler, Cleopatra. She is so loving and kind and loves to snug the dogs that we bring in for DogVacay! Weekends we are free 24/7. We hope to hear from you soon!

Lara was a great host to our 1 year old Anya! We dropped her off for a few hours while we enjoyed the city. Lara took great care of Anya and even took her out for a walk while running errands. Anya came back happy and exhausted from a wonderful stay. I will definitely contact Lara for future stays. Thanks again!
Ryan and Lara were fantastic! Jax didn't want to leave when we picked him up. They sent us updates and pictures daily while we were gone, which really made us feel at ease leaving him. Jax had a blast with their pup and we will definitely be contacting them again for Jax next vacay.
Lara & Ryan were great! I chose them off other reviews and convenience - NO REGRETS!

I have a 7 month old puppy and it was her first time being left behind. I was worried about her separation anxiety but it was no sweat. She was instantly happy with Lara and had an exciting weekend around the city socializing & doing her favorite activities.

Lara was easy to reach and sent me cute pics so I didn't miss my pup too much :).
Very professional
Lara and Ryan took great care of Oliver! Would certainly recommend them and will be sending him their way again! Thanks!
Lara and Ryan were truly lifesavers taking Zoey in last minute when I had to travel. They are super sweet and very accomodating. They made this whole experience so easy on me with picking Zoey up and even dropping her of with their car. Having never left my dog alone before, I was pretty nervous but I can confidently say that after a few days I could see how great they took care of Zoey and what amazing time she had with their sweet dog Cleo.! The sweet pictures of puppy playtime certainly helped :) Zoey had a great time and would highly recommend Ryan, Lara and Cleo as amazing dog sitters!
Another great experience! Guinness came home so happy. It is great to go away and know that your dog is taken care of and loved. Thank you!!
Lara and Ryan were pleasant to communicate with, caring, loving and responsible. Because of Ryan and Lara I had a great first experience and will continue to use Dogvacay. Guinness didn't even want to leave when I came to pick him up! He was already attached and I could tell he was loved and cared for while I was gone. Pawsatively a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend them.
they were great, our dog who usually doesn't care for other dogs is now best friends with Cleopatra.
They were great, my dog didn't want to come home.
Ryan and Lara were great. Highly recommend.
When I originally booked with Ryan and Tara they seemed like true dog lovers who were extremely responsible and caring. This doesn't even scratch the surface!

Just days before my two French Bulldogs were scheduled for their DogVacay stay, one pup had to have major surgery and the other went into heat. What timing?! This meant huge responsibility -- administering pills, changing doggy diapers and watching their activity levels closely given the post-surgery instructions. I was nervous, but Ryan and Tara handled this expertly and put me (the worrying puppy parent) at ease with little notes and pictures.

I would recommend them to anyone and would definitely trust them to watch Lola and Lucy again. Thank you!
Super awesome! Couldn't be happier! We meet Ryan a few weeks before and our minds were completely put our minds at ease.

They adhered to all our dogs needs perfectly and went above and beyond anything they needed to do.

I would recommend to both family and friends.
Tali seemed very happy and healthy when we picked her up. Ryan and Lara were happy to send photographs throughout her stay and although a small bout of dodgy stomach, I believe everything went swimmingly.
Ryan and Lara were great!! Took very well of Cleo and treated her as their own pup! They always kept in constant communication with me and sent me photos throughout the day. Fabulous caring couple!!
Ryan and Lara were great. They are an easy going nice couple who truly love dogs. I felt so comfortable dropping our dog Hogan off with Lara even though I had never met her. She was excited to see Hogan, asked questions and was happy to take him. Ryan kept us in touch with Hogan while we were away by sending us photos of him. We had a great experience with them and Hogan came home to us happy and content.
Ryan and Lara were the best hosts that I have ever used for Gino. When I picked him up he did not want to leave, and I could tell that
Ryan and Lara took such great care of him. They are such a wonderful couple that I highly recommend to everyone looking for a fun, safe, and loving atmosphere for their dog. I will definitely be using them again in the near future!
Ryan and Lara were amazing. Not only were they so friendly and accommodating (last minute reservation), Lara sent me pictures of my little Bandit and quickly responded to text messages. They are very attentive, kind and generous people. I will definitely be using them again and I hope you do too. There was absolutely nothing negative about Bandit's stay with them.
