I recently started using DogVacay after feeling that my dog wasn't getting enough attention at the popular bigger boarding facilities. I ran across Larry and he is exactly what I was looking for. Larry is a very genuine guy and you can tell he enjoys what he does. He always welcomes my dog and myself at any time that I need his services. Your dog will be in good hands!
Larry makes leaving my pup as easy as possible! My pup tells me that he has the BEST time hanging with larry and his fellow peeps. It is so nice to feel so secure that the pup is happy and well taken care of when i am gone. Larry's patience and love of dogs radiates with him and his surroundings. Larry is my first call when wanderlust strikes!
I am one of those crazy dog parents that treats their pups like tiny humans, so I was worried leaving my Golden Retriever and Boston Terrier with a sitter. After our meet and greet, I felt much better leaving them in Larry's hands. He took great care of them and treated them like part of the family. He was also available to update us all along the way so we could see they were having a great time. Excellent experience, I highly recommend Larry.
I was going to be in St. Louis overnight with my kids and my dog, but I wanted to be able to go to some local attractions. I found Larry on Dog Vacay. He was wonderful with my dog, and she warmed up to him instantly. I could relax knowing she was in good hands. I highly recommend him.
My dog always seems happy when I come to pick him up at Larry's. He is relaxed and acts like he thought he was supposed to be living there now.
This is the second year in a row that we have used Larry to take care of our rambunctious husky, Mishka. Larry is amazing and Mishka enjoyed his stay again!! They would go on bike runs and frequent walks. Larry always kept us posted while we were away with pictures and videos. Thanks so much for giving us Peace Of Mind while we were away!!!
I think Shu had a fantastic time at Larry's. He had lots of socializing and exposure to other dogs that is very enjoyable, but rare experience for him. As we arrived, Shu was immediately preoccupied with Cooper and haven't even noticed me leaving. I appreciated the facebook page and photos a lot, however it would be nice to hear how Shu was behaving and reacting to other dogs.

I would recommend Larry to others and would have repetitive stays if needed.
Our small breed dog liked Larry from the minute they met. When I brought the dog to leave him, he just went off with Larry and was very happy to be there. Great communication and photos throughout! Sebastian was tired and happy when I picked him up. Definitely would use this host again!
My dog really seemed to enjoy staying with Larry and I would send him there again. There is no fenced yard, but Larry does lots of dog walks.
Larry was great with our senior beagle, Biscuit. After a week with Larry, Biscuit was cured of his annoying barking habit, and was walking on his leash much better than usual. He also lost a little weight (which he needed to do), and looked very health and happy. Larry took Biscuit on lots of walks, and gave him a lot of love and attention. Biscuit got along great with Larry's dog, Cooper. We plan to leave Biscuit with Larry again next time we go away.
Excellent! We have an almost 15-year-old Golden Retriever who requires a bit of extra attention, and Larry was great. Our old girl seemed very happy at the end of her stay. We highly recommend The Dog House on Stanford!
Larry was wonderful with my dog Sadie. He kept me updated on her comfort level and how she was doing daily, which was very comforting for my wife and I.

Larry is now going to help with training and will always be our first option when we need boarding.
Larry did a great job with our two small dogs. This was our first time to use Dogvacay. It was a last minute reservation and he responded immediately. Our dogs were very well taken care of while we were gone.
My little baby Franklin means the world to me and I felt so relaxed leaving him in Larry's care over the Christmas holiday. He sent numerous photos to me so I knew he was well taken care of and having a blast! I plan to continue to use Larry to babysit Franklin and would recommend his services to anybody looking for a trusted pet sitter.
My little Isabelle just got home from a weekend stay with Larry and she couldn't be happier! She normally only stays with her "grandparents" while I'm away but was unable to this particular weekend which left me to find alternative arrangements. I contacted Larry who quickly responded back to my inquiry. He put my mind at ease after our initial meet and greet by getting to know Isabelle and her personality during a long walk. While I was away I was kept updated via pictures and texts which allowed me to have a worry free vacation. She had a blast with him I recognized through her happy disposition upon my return. I would highly recommend his services to anyone with a dog, he did an exceptional job!
Junior had a great experience staying with Larry! Larry was just great about sending lots of pictures and commentary while I was gone on my vacation. I could see that Junior was getting lots of walks and socialization, and was being treated like a member of the family.
Larry was amazing!!! Our dog Mishka, is a high energy and somewhat challenging Husky. From the time we met before the stay, till all the way through when I picked Mishka up, Larry was so informative and exceeded all of our expectations. Mishka had a great time and we were able to enjoy our time away without any worries or concerns! I would highly recommend Larry to anyone looking for a fun and comfortable place for their dog to stay with complete peace of mind!!

A wonderful experience. I have never left my dogs with anyone and was very apprehensive but Larry was wonderful, he kept in touch with me and Sasha seemed happy and content when I picked her up.
Daisy enjoyed her time with the family. They took her on long walks which she loved. They took excellent care of my baby! I highly recommend their service.
Another excellent dogvacay experience! This is the second time our dog Truman has stayed with Larry. This stay was 3 days, 2 nights. When we arrived at Larry’s, Truman seemed to remember the house from his previous visit and trotted up to the front door with tail wagging. He entered readily and seemed happy to see Larry and his dog, Cooper. This was very reassuring and affirmed my previous observation that Larry maintains a friendly, calm environment where dogs feel welcome and secure. Larry sent daily photos of Truman in the home, on walks, and chasing a “Frisbee” in the yard. When I arrived to pick Truman up there were a total of 4 dogs in the home (Larry said 4 is his max), lounging in the living room with Larry and his wife. The dogs all came to the door to greet me and appeared quite content and fairly laid-back. Truman seemed in no hurry to leave. After 2 dogvacays with Larry, I really believe that he genuinely enjoys the dogs and makes a real effort to get to know each dog in order to make them all feel comfortable. Will definitely use Larry again.
This was an excellent boarding experience! Larry and his adult son/colleague Nathan were great hosts to our border collie for 4 nights in May. Larry’s own dog, Cooper, and a guest dog were present at our meet-n-greet and drop off visits. Larry was very interested in learning about my dog’s habits and needs. It was obvious that Larry knew how to maintain a calm submissive pack and that all the dogs were happy and relaxed under his leadership. My dog walked readily into Larry’s home and was greeted but not assaulted by the other dogs. I felt confident that I was leaving my dog in a very safe and nurturing environment. Larry and Nathan were most patient with my questions and concerns prior to drop off and responded quickly to my messages during my trip. They sent email updates, photos, and even a brief video of my dog playing "Frisbee." My dog looked quite content in the photos and seemed relaxed and “at home” when I picked him up. It was also nice that Larry’s home is convenient to the airport – just off I-170 less than 15 minutes from SkyPark.
This was our dog's first stay with Larry W. I think she had a very relaxing enjoyable stay. She loves to go for walks, so Larry was ideal for her since he walks 3 times a day. There were 2 other dogs at Larry's and they all got along well. We will go back to Larry.
Larry has been sitting dogs for some time, before he joined DogVacay. I think he is very good. This is the second time our dog, Tara stayed with Larry. When we got out of the car, she walked up the sidewalk wagging her tail, right to the front door. Tara knew where she was and was happy to go right inside. The first time we left her with Larry, he suggested to walk with him and his dog, Cooper. When we finished the walk, he took Tara's leash and I got in my car. That separation worked very well. I think he understands dogs and makes them feel at ease. Tara is almost 11 years old and is fairly laid back. We will definitely want Tara to have another Vacay with Larry in the future.
