Lori is an excellent host.....from the minute I pulled up to her house I knew that I made the right choice.....she made sure to listen to my dogs needs when dropping off.....the communication and video and picture updates were daily human family could enjoy our vacation knowing our fur baby was week cared for.....thank you Lori
Lori took great care of our senior dogs. We appreciate the email updates while we were traveling abroad. Coco and Max had great stay. We look forward to the next opportunity.
Another great doggy daycare experience with Lori! Lori responds quickly and is very flexible. She has such a big heart and is so kind and patient with Kirby! She always sends photos throughout the day and even took Kirby out for a bike ride to help tire him out. :) I highly recommend
Bella had another wonderful stay with Lori!
Bella was very excited as we arrived at Lori's
and she couldn't wait to get inside and
start her vacation. As always, I received videos/photos of Bella enjoying her stay and socializing with her canine friends.

Lori is incredible and I strongly recommend her.

Thank you Lori for your great care of Bella!!!!!
Waffles always has so much fun at Lori's! We've been going to Lori's for almost 1.5 years now and have NEVER had a problem. Waffles eats, sleeps, plays well and comes back home healthy and tired! :)
Lori Muhovich, in Brea, CA, has hosted our golden retriever, Cosmo, several times. She has made some suggestions that have helped this senior (12 1/2 years) dog be more comfortable, and when we picked him up last week she tucked in a bag of NaturVet Senior Wellness Hip & Joint Advanced Plus Omegas for him. We are also using supplements suggested by our vet, but she said he really liked this one. She has also helped his eating pattern so he has lost a few pounds to further ease strain on his hips, It's really nice to get your dog back better than when he went to Lori! He's usually perkier also, I think, because there are other dogs to socialize with. AND she has sent us videos and photos of what he is doing at her house. Very nice!!! I'm sure that he will be happy to return to her in another week when we head off to join family for the holidays, and we don't have to worry about him. Thanks from Mary Strazdas.
A return and thoroughly satisfied parent. My princess seems to look forward to visit Lori. We are now so at peace when we travel knowing she is with someone who truly cares.
My 80 lbs puppy Penelope, loves going to Lori's 2x a week and looks forward to it. Lori has done such a great job helping her play with other dog's of all sizes, socializing and Pen even pulls her while Lori's on her bike! AMAZING! Pen comes home happy and tired from a very productive day of hard playing...LOVE Lori!
Bob enjoyed his stay very much with Lori. He went for walks. Lori send pictures during his stay. It was very comforting to know that he was well taken care of. Bob has another visit with Lori coming up on Monday. I am Overjoyed to find a place for Bob to go to be well taken care of and to play with friends. Lori you are an angel.
I have been dreading the day I would have to leave my princess with a stranger until we met Lori through DogVacay. It was love at first site. Lori is very caring and affectionate with her guests. She impressed me with her attention to details. This is not just a job for her, it a passion. When we picked up Maple, she didn't seem to have missed us at all .....that's is great. We are now looking forward to our future travels. No fear...we have Lori to count on.
We love Lori!! We left our 6 year old black lab with Lori while my family and I left the country for 6 weeks. Throughout our entire trip we received photo and written updates of our boy. Early into his stay with Lori he had a small medical issue that Lori immediately addressed, taking him to our vet, and consistently administering his prescribed medication until he was better. Lori truly loved and cared for our dog as one of her own dogs. I would highly recommend Lori. She has a love for the dogs she cares for that is unsurpassed. Thank you Lori! You're the best!
It is such a relief that I can rely on Lori to take care of our three miniature schnauzers when we decide to travel. We love getting pictures and updates, and not worrying about our furry children.
My husband and I were looking for a regular weekly daycare for our 2.5 year lab mix, Kirby, and found Lori. Not only is she great with our dog but she also responds to our messages quickly and is very accommodating. We needed someone who would be able to watch Kirby really early in the morning until later in the evening once a week. Most doggie daycare sitters would not accommodate the long day. Fortunately, we found Lori who has been able to help us. She even takes Kirby out for walks and sends us photos throughout the day! I would highly recommend Lori!
Another wonderful stay with you, Lori. Zeus feels so comfortable in your home. He has no transition issues when he comes home. I am so glad we found you.
Bella had another terrific stay with Lori and her family. Bella is treated with such great care and showered with love. I received daily photos/videos of Bella enjoying her stay.

It's so wonderful for me since I now Bella is safe and happy with Lori and her family while I am out of town. Bella is looking forward to her next stay. I am so lucky to have found Lori!!!
I left my fur babies with Lori when I took a weekend get-away. After meeting Lori I felt confident that she would take good care of my pups, I did not worry about them the entire time I was gone! I wouldn't hesitate to leave my babies with her again, they were safe, well cared for, and if they could talk I bet they would tell me they had a good time ;)
We left our black lab, Duke, with Lori and he came home happy and tired! Lori walked Duke twice a day and he played with another dog throughout his stay. We will be going on a long trip soon and knowing that Duke will be with Lori while we're away alleviates our anxiety about leaving. We know that he is being cared for and loved the way that we do. Thank you Lori!! We truly appreciate your passion and dedication to animals in your care.
As always, Bella loved her stay with Lori and her family. Bella had lots of walks/runs and playtime, and I received daily photos/videos. Bella is so happy and excited when going to stay at Lori's.

Lori and her family always take such great care of Bella. They are the BEST!

THANK YOU AGAIN for the love and care you give Bella!!!
Lori was wonderful. She took time to get to know my dog and introduce her to the environment and the other dogs very well. Her attentiveness was first rate.
Zeus came home happy and healthy. No anxiety which means he was very comfortable in your home. Thank you for taking such good care of him.
I'm glad to have found a dog host who provide quality care to pets. Lori is a caring and loving dog person. I was a bit nervous and not sure whether I'd find someone who I can trust while leaving our fur kid behind particularly when it was Brody's first time boarding away from home with someone he doesn't know. Have to say our experience with Lori was positive. I always received daily pictures throughout the day from Lori to inform me of Brody's status such as going for a dog walk and chilling with other pet friends. She really helped ease my mind knowing Brody was in good hands. Additionally, Brody got along with other pet guests because of the type of dogs Lori takes in are all pet friendly and she doesn't take many at once. I'd certainly book with Lori again in the future and recommend her, if you're looking for a wonderful pet host.
This is a far overdue review as I just realized I forgot to leave one! Annie stayed away from home for the first time in June and did great at Lori's. Picture updates kept me feeling reassured all weekend. I'm overly particular as Annie takes quite a few medications but Lori managed them all well and kept her safe and happy!
Lori and her family are amazing! This is our second time using Lori to watch our dog Loki while we went on vacation. Lori has extensive experience with dogs- I knew Loki would be well cared for and happy. He played with Lori and her family, with other dogs, and went on multiple walks a day! Lori even sends pics and videos as well as updates during your pup's stay! I will always use Lori and highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone who will watch their dog and treat him/her like it is one of her own! Thanks Lori!!
I've never taken my puppy to a daycare before, she's always been home and my gramma or myself would watch her, so I was a bit leery until I met Lori! I dropped Penelope off for a play day for the first time last week and then second time this week and it was great.

She hasn't been socialized very much so this was a great experience for her and with future plans and vacations coming I have no qualms about leaving Penelope in the excellent hands of Lori! Penelope has been looking forward now to her play days. I couldn't have asked for a better situation and a better person to care for my fur face.
Bella had another great stay with Lori and her family. Bella made new friends and enjoyed seeing her old friends. It is wonderful knowing that while I am away, Bella is well cared for and happy! Excellent as usual !!!!
Lori is awesome! You can really tell her and her family cares about your dogs. She sends lovely little picture and video updates and even encourages your dog to socialize with other dogs.
My dog Bella had another fabulous week with Lori and her family. As usual, received photos and videos of Bella having a great time! Bella is looking forward to her visit next month with Lori.

Lori and her family are awesome people that love Bella as if she where their own. The care given by Lori is the BEST!
Bella had another fun, loving week at Lori's. I can't say enough good things about the care Bella gets from Lori and her family. I receive daily updates, photos and videos on Bella. Bella loves her second home and can't wait to return in a few weeks.

The care given by Lori and her family - AMAZING!!!
Leaving our older dog when we travel has always been a concern for us until we met Lori. He loves going to Lori's house and comes home happy and healthy. We can enjoy our trips away without worrying or wondering how he's doing. Lori is so kind and attentive and keeps us posted on our pup's activities with pictures, texts, and videos. She's absolutely THE BEST! Thanks again Lori!
Lori is absolutely amazing. I was so nervous as this was my first time ever leaving my dogs with a stranger! My dogs walked into her garden as though they had been there many times before. Whilst we were away Lori would send many pictures of our fur babies playing. I would recommend her services 100% and will be hopefully using her again. Love this app!
i visited more than 5 houses before I met Lori.
I was so upset because only one week left before I leave. After I met Lori I felt so comfortable and reliable. My dog, Toby is very active yellow Labrador. She exercised a lot with Toby and made him happy. She sent pictures of Toby through the email because I was out of the country.
Toby behave better after I came back
My very active miniature schnauzer , Jackson, had a wonderful stay with Lori. I received photos and a video of his busy day??. I appreciated Lori's reassuring manner and obvious experience! We cannot wait to go back!
I brought my dog Annie to stay Lori for a trial run leading up to a scheduled overnight visit we have in a few weeks. I've never left Annie with anyone before, but Lori made sure to put me (and Annie!) at ease. My dog has. a few health issues, but Lori is very sensitive to her needs and I know i'll be able to trust her with medications. As a bonus, she even cut Annie's nails.I'm so really glad to have found Lori.
My Kota's time with Lori was brief, yet very impactful. She welcomed him, he was accompanied by his bed and food, to which got sat on the trash cans, off the back of her house in the alleyway. When I return to pickup Kota, he was scheduled for a over night, that did not happen, I went and got my dog a couple hours later. He apparently was to whiny for her taste. When I picked up Kota his bed and food were still there on the trash can. The bed was rain soaked, disappointing, the food left outside on the trash can as well, disappointing and not respectful of my possessions. I got the feeling there was never a scenario to welcome my dog. There was five dollars placed in the bag with Kota's dog food as a peace offering. When I spotted it after I returned home, I promptly mailed it back. I didn't need that five dollars.
Lori is awesome! I feel so comfortable leaving my dogs with her because I know she will take care of them and treat them better than I do. They get tons of exercise when they're with her and she constantly sends updates with pictures and videos of what they're up to. It's great! Thanks Lori for another great dog sitting experience!!
Awesome stay at Lori's once again. Bella had another week of play and love. Bella looks forward going to her second home. If you don't want to worry about your dog while you are gone, Lori is the person for you! Thank you again Lori!!!
Oh my gosh - How do you sum up my experience with Lori??? AMAZING that is how!

From the moment I spoke with her on the phone, to meeting her, to having her care for my little one Gracie, to the final pick up, I was so very impressed.

Lori - sent daily updates and even snapshots - so it felt like I left my Gracie with my best friend. She walked her and welcomed her into her home.

This was a wonderful experience - not to mention she lived right around the Corner!

If you are looking for a loving and caring environment for your pets around the Brea area, contact Lori, you will be as thankful as I am to have met a perfect match! Thankful for this website Dogvacay as well!

Thank you Lori for loving Gracie as your own! Until next time, Hugs!

Our older dog has come home stressed out from places we've boarded him in the past. Staying with Lori is a completely different experience for him. He comes home happy, healthy, and relaxed. Wish I could give Lori 10 stars!
Bella had another wonderful time with Lori. She is the perfect host! Bella made new friends and, as always, had plenty of activity. I receive videos and pictures of Bella daily. I have no worries leaving Bella as I know she is getting the best care. Bella can't wait to see Lori again in a few weeks.
Our two dogs had great time. Thanks for the updates (pictures, video and emails) while we were on vacation. We appreciate the care you them. We look forward to the next opportunity.
Waffles had a great time at Lori's as always. She made new friends, ate and slept very well, and I got many videos and pictures!
Lori was a very good dog sitter! She followed the instructions that we left, and really sent lots of pictures, more than expected for the time I was away. We felt our dog was very comfortable in her house, and we would do it agin!
Lori is awesome!!! My furry child Bella just had a fun-filled, wonderful week with Lori and her family. Lori kept me updated each day and sent me pictures/videos. I knew Bella was with a great family and having a fun time! Bella is looking forward to her next stay with Lori in a couple of weeks.

Lori is so accommodating and the BEST in her profession. I feel so good that Bella has a second home, thereby giving me peace of mind when I travel.

Thank you Lori!
Lori is always accommodating. She makes sure that the drop off and pick up times for daycare works for me, and will work around my schedule, which I appreciate greatly! Waffles loves her human and other dogs company when she's at Lori's. Waffles gets enough workouts, play times and gets fed on time. She stays very healthy and happy at daycare, and I get pictures and videos of her everyday!
This was absolutely the BEST care I could have hoped for for our 2 little fur balls!! Lori was AMAZING!!! Seriously, she far exceeded my expectations. She cared for our dogs as if they were her own and she sent us MANY pictures AND VIDEOS to let us know what they were up to............park, walks to the store, playing with other dogs. SO HAPPY we found her and now we have a dog sitter for life! THANK YOU LORI!
Lori was awesome. She sent me cute updates and photos of my pup and she took such a great care of him. I will never go to anyone but her, I highly recommend her.
Lori was great as always! Waffles had a fantastic time, and I was able to travel without having to worry about Waffles, thanks to all the pictures from Lori. She makes sure that Waffles gets enough play time and walks everyday!
One of the things I love about Lori is that taking care of animals is not a job, but a passion of hers. I could tell this the moment I did a home visit when deciding on where to leave my girl Bella. Not only is Lori warm, knowledgeable, comforting (to both the animals and their owners) but she is also very dedicated to what she does. This was only Bella's second stay with Lori and just from the videos/texts that Lori sent me for the duration of Bella's stay, I could immediately tell that Lori already knew Bella's personality, comfort levels and her personal traits. This is VERY important to me because with Bella being a rescue, she can sometimes be skiddish/uncomfortable with new people/surroundings. Just from seeing Bella with Lori, I could tell my baby girl couldn't be anymore loved and comfortable.

I couldn't be happier with Bella's stay. We came home and Bella instantly when to her bed to take a nap; I know she had a great time! I also immediately made my next two reservations with Lori!

Thank you again Lori for the awesome care you give Bella!
Lori was outstanding! This was my first time ever using a dog sitter, and I will definitely be talking to her first when I take my next trip.

I got constant updates on my pup, and pics and videos too! She kept him on his routine and he had a blast!

Thank you, Lori!
I don't ever have to worry about my dog while planning a trip because Lori is always there to help me out! I have left Waffles at her house multiple times overnight, and she always comes home happy and tired. Waffles gets super excited whenever she sees Lori's family because they give her much attention and play time, and they even jog or walk Waffles at least once a day.
Lori is fantastic! I was initially hesitant leaving my dog Bella anywhere but Lori made me feel very comfortable and it was very clear she genuinely loves animals and what she does.

I can't convey how comforting it is to me to now travel knowing Bella is happy in her "other" home with Lori and her family.

I am so glad I found Lori and I highly recommend her!

Thank you Lori for taking such great care of my furry child Bella!
After adding a new puppy to our family, we needed doggy daycare for our three dogs while we went on an outing. Lori came to our rescue. Our three dogs (including the puppy) had fun day with Lori, and we could relax and enjoy the day. Even better, the dogs were tired after their long walk and playtime, and we could enjoy a peaceful evening.
Lori is amazing! We were nervous about leaving our baby, Boogie, since we had never left him before and because of his separation anxiety. When we first met Lori, she made us feel very welcomed. She is a very warm and loving person who truly cared for our baby as if he were her own. Lori made sure to keep us updated throughout our trip and she also sent us photos and videos of Boogie having fun with his new furry friends! We are extremely happy with our experience with Lori and we definitely recommend her for anyone looking for an awesome pet sitter! Without her, our trip would not have been as enjoyable as it was! Thank you, Lori!
Lori always genuinely cares for dogs and monitors them closely while they have fun playing around! Waffles always has a great time at Lori's, and comes home happy and tired. I'm so glad I found Lori so I can focus during long workdays without worrying about Waffles! Love the constant pics and updates.
Brought my dog Bella to Lori for the 2nd time and it was great! Lori recommends and gives helpful advice for Bella. My dog always has a great time that she doesn't get sad when we have to go out of town! Thanks Lori.
Waffles always has a good time with Lori and her family! Waffles loves her dogs and her backyard! Best daycare I could ask for.
We rescued our dog from a shelter so he has always been nervous about being left when we go out of town. Lori made him feel right at home and gave him lots of attention and things to do to make his stay easier and fun. He came home relaxed and happy. She also sent us pictures and texts every day to let us know how our boy was doing. Thanks Lori!
Lori was great as always! She's flexible and genuinely caring. I've been using her daycare service for months and I couldn't have asked for any better experience. Waffles has so much fun with Lori and her family and sometimes I think Waffles loves Lori more than she loves me!!
Lori is very flexible and knowledgeable about dogs.
My dog Waffles loves her family and her backyard (and her turtles) and I get pictures of Waffles all the time! I use the daycare service everyday with the occasional boarding, and Lori has been excellent. I'll definitely keep sending Waffles for daycare and boarding!
I brought my 5 month old husky for a week and Lori was such a great help. Everyday she took my dog on a run with her bike and Bella played with her dog as well. She got a lot of exercise, ate well, and was happy to be there. She also gave me some advice and tips for walking my dog since she likes to pull. Everyday she updated me with pictures of my dog and also videos. I was so worried I might not find the right dog sitter for my husky, but I'm glad it all worked out. Lori is a sweet lady and would definitely come back if I need a dog sitter.
Lori is very accommodating, caring and my dog loves her! I've been using the daycare service and it's been working out really well. I get cute pictures and videos all day while I'm away!
Where do I start about Lori and the great care she gave my puppy. First of all her flexibility. I was going out of town for a week and the person who was gonna watch her canceled on me last minute, so I found Lori. I contacted her, she fit me in for a meet and greet right away, and agreed to the 7 days I needed for boarding. Then I had to call her the night before I was leaving due to some schedule changes and she even took us in a night early! She has a great yard with lots of shady areas and lives in a great neighborhood with sidewalks for their walks. She kept me updated daily with pics of Fanny playing, going on their daily walks even their trip to Home Depot:) She and her family treated my baby as their own for the week I was gone and it made me to be able to enjoy myself with my family and know she was well taken care of. We are home now and I can tell Lori kept her very active!! She did make some other puppy friends at Lori's and they played hard!! Lori is so sweet and very knowledgeable about dogs she even gave me some great pointers!! I would 100% recommend her and will use her again!!
Lori and her family are simply wonderful with dogs. It is apparent that they genuinely enjoy them and their unique personalities. They took such good care of our dog, Gracie, that I wasn't sure that she would want to come home. Lori also sent me text message updates every day several videos of where Gracie was and what she was doing. Gracie enjoyed walking and playing every day that she was there and was in great spirits when I picked her up. You can rest assured that you dog will be in wonderful hands with Lori!
Lori and her family are absolutely amazing! We are first time puppy owners and very protective of our new little family member! She spent over an hour talking with me on the phone answering questions and even let us come over before hand to meet. (Again this is our first dog.
Lori and her family were so loving and kind to our fur babies. She documented their day for us with pictures and video. It was so comforting knowing they were having a great time while we were away. Our dogs were happy, clean, and tired (from all the walks!) when they got home. We will definitely use Lori again!
Waffles has been going to daycare for a few weeks now, and she gets along with Lori and her family super well! Waffles gets plenty of walking and play time everyday and comes home tired :)
Lori and her husband were wonderful! Our puppy could not have been in better hands! He came home happy and pooped! :-) They were warm, welcoming and totally flexible when it came to drop off and pick up times. We would absolutely use them again!
Waffles had a great time at Lori's! I used the daycare service while I was at work and she updated me how Waffles was doing and communicated frequently.
From start to finish just a wonderful experience for our dog and U.S. As well...Lori sent us pics of our dog and it was obvious he was doing well. Lori let us know how he was doing and it was a great vacation bonus knowing he was having time of his life. Only worry was whether he would want to rejoin us at end of vacation...we tried Wags and Wiggles but this beat Wags and Wiggles 100 times over.
wow! what can we say... Lori and Mike did a wonderful job with our Zoey. I felt completely at ease knowing she was being well taken care of with lots of love and exercise. I loved receiving updates and pictures or videos on how they were doing. Lori was awesome and we will be a returning customer with out a doubt. Zoey was happy to see us of course but I know she had a good time with this family. Thank you Lori, Mike and family.
My fiance and I traveled to the Philippines for two weeks, leaving our two fury babies with Lori and her family. Our two large dogs got tones of exercise and attention. They came home happy and healthy. Lori and her husband, Mike, were really flexible and patient with our rescues. Lori took the time to understand the background of our pups and used all my instructions and notes to ensure Lucy and Sarge had a wonderful experience. She also took lots of pictures and videos to help ease our minds while we were away. Would definitely recommend and will certain return!
Poppy just finished his second vacation with Lori. He loves staying with Lori and her family. It truly is a vacation experience for him. He is lavished with love and attention. Lori is very attentive to his needs and desires and plans activities accordingly. Poppy is looking forward to future visits!
Lori was great with our two dogs and took care of them as if they were her own. We had a last minute trip with specific times we needed to drop them off and pick them up. Lori was very accommodating with our requests. She sent updates and even videos to us of our dogs which we loved! I would highly recommend Lori and will definitely use her again!
Absolutely wonderful. If there were 10 stars to give, we'd give it! Lori was sweet, welcoming, and understanding. She agreed to a meet up right away and was very attentive about our puppy's needs and also very knowledgeable about his puppy nature. We felt that we could trust her immediately and rightly so! She was accomodating with our schedule even though we had changes to it and kept us updated throughout his entire stay. We felt like it was family taking care of our little puppy. So satisfied with Lori's love and care! Frodo even got a bath and his mat got a wash! Wow! :) :)
Lori was so good with Sammy. She took him on lots of walks and spent lots of time with him. We got some great pictures and videos of Sammy as he walked and sat with Lori.
Lori was great with my two dogs. She sends me doggie pictures for updates. I will definitely use her again in the future.
My dog Poppy had a wonderful time with Lori and her family. When I picked him up he was very happy and content. I could tell by how he interacted with the family that he had grown to love them very much. While I was away Lori kept me updated with fun pictures and text messages. She was very loving and attentive to Poppy's needs. We highly recommend her!
I needed someone who could take care of my three dogs (chihuahua, yorky-mix, and terrier-mix) during my one week spring vacation. I'm glad that we found Lori. She's very nice and took really good care of my dogs. One of my dogs was not an easy dog to walk with. This dog used to hate and would refuse to walk outside. She might have had a traumatic experience before we rescued her at an animal shelter. Anyway, Lori gently approached her and helped her overcome her fear. It was great to see her picture walking with Lori and her dog. Lori sent me quite a few photos of my dogs during my trip, so I didn't have to worry about them. Lori even typed up instructions on how I could better help my dogs stay healthy. My dogs literally had a nice vacation at Lori's house.
This was my Maggie's first stay with Lori. I felt very good leaving her as I could tell that Lori loves dogs. I know she took very good care of Maggie. She enjoyed having Maggie there, which meant a lot to me. Maggie came home happy! Thank you, Lori, for a great first-time experience! I would definitely use her services again....
This was the second time Lori was taking care of my doggy while I was travelling. She kept sending photos and updates during the whole week. I really had no worries about my doggy staying with her and her family. Again she was the best! she took care of my little guy perfectly. Thank you so much Lori!
After having trouble finding my senior dog (Sadie) a sitter, I'm so glad I found Lori!! It was a great experience as a first-time Dog Vacay user. I really appreciated all the pictures Lori sent during Sadie's stay - it helped assure me that Sadie was well taken care of, had companions, and had places to explore! Even though Sadie is now pretty low energy, it was nice that Lori has a nice yard for the dogs to hang out in. I determine how well a stay went by how Sadie behaves in the 1st few days after coming home (she's had issues ranging from sores to diarrhea to frequent urination to other behavioral issues)....this time, Sadie seemed happy/content - as if she never left :) I would definitely use Lori's services again!
Excellent host, very satified with service provided by Lori, took care of my dog like it was one of her own, even on a short notice, I will recommend her to all my friends, and will most definitely use her services again. Thank you so much Lori :)
How lucky we were to find Lori! She geniuinely cares about our dogs and went out of her way to ensure they felt comfortable. Although Sarge and Lucy were happy to see their parents after two days, I could tell the two really enjoyed their stay with Lori and her family. Not only did they get enough exercise daily, but they also got enough mind stimulation through Lori's guide through next experiences. Lori also provided daily updates, pictures, and videos which helped ease my mind with leaving my babies in an environment they weren't familiar with. I will definitely book with her again!
We love that Lori and her husband give our active dog lots of fetch time and long walks! After picking him up he turned in early...Yay! Lori brushed him so he came home groomed and happy!
We are generally reluctant to leave our dogs, especially after a poor experience with a prominent pet hotel, but I had to find a place for them recently when I had surgery. I searched Dogvacay and found Lori, who lives close by and seemed to offer all we were looking for. It turned out to be a perfect experience. First, the dogs love her and her family, but also she cared for their needs just as I would have. Teeth and eyes cleaned every day, careful timely feeding, dogs inside unless she is out with them, tucked goodnight in their crates in the room with them, wonderful walks around downtown Brea, ... Okay, maybe she treats them even better than I do.
I wholeheartedly recommend Lori, especially for hesitant owners.
Wally came home a happy dog. Lori ran him along side her bicycle and took him to an enclosed school yard to fetch the ball. In addition she sent pictures and videos to us of Wally and his activities.
Lori has really taken excellent care of my puppy and provided great advices. She communicated very well and sent me photos and video of how my dog stayed with her. Thank you so much Lori!
We have an active Jack Russell Terrier who loves playing fetch and taking walks, so Lori and her husband fit the bill! He got plenty of playtime and Lori made sure he was hydrated especially with the unseasonably hot weather.
Lori was golden. We panicked when our dog sitter cancelled 3 days prior due to an emergency. We were leaving town for our sons wedding and didn't know what to do at such short notice. We saw Lori's profile on dogvacay and she sounded perfect. She responded within a couple hours and we met the next day. Immediately upon meeting her we knew she was the one we wanted to care for Roxy. Lori has a calmness about her, very loving, and was able to make Roxy comfortable in her home in a short time. She sent us daily pics of our "baby", took her for walks,and provided all the attention she was accustomed to. As much as we don't want to admit, Roxy was a little sad when we got home and we know she missed Lori and her family. We would HIGHLY recommend Lori to care for your beloved pet. You and your pet won't be disappointed.
Lori responded promptly to the reservation request. She was punctual upon drop off and pick up. Our dog seemed to enjoy the visit and we received some nice pictures while we were away. We are grateful for the care and attention that was provided. She will do a great job with your small to medium sized dog while taking that much deserved Summer vacation or Holiday getaway.
Lori and her family did an excellent job keeping our dog, Piper, happy and busy. We know she appreciated her daily walks as all the photos and videos we received over the weekend were of a very content and happy dog. It is so nice to know that while you are gone your dog is being cared for, in a home, by someone who wants them to be happy, content and safe.
Lori did a very good job managing the needs of my dog. She was on time, very professional and did a great job handling my pet. I would not hesitate having her watch my dog again.
What a great experience, Chimaera can be a little active, but Lori knew just how to calm her. I felt that when Chimaera was taken out on her walk I didn't have anything to worry about. Chimaera came back well exercised but not overheated. I will be using Lori and her services again.
