About Loretta

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have a 1400 sq foot house with a large back yard. I have owned several German Shepherds and recently hosted a rescue dog. I love dogs and am very active. I travel several times a year so I don't currently own a dog but miss having a furry companion. I would love to host dogs on a temporary basis. If you are looking for someone to take care of your precious furry friends I'd love to have the opportunity to meet them.

Loretta did a wonderful job with my dog Daisy. During the meet and greet, I could tell she is a "dog person" and my Daisy felt comfortable with her. She has a fabulous fenced in back yard so I felt Daisy would be safe. She is organized and has a system which made me feel good about leaving Daisy with her. I will book with Loretta again!
Loretta took good care of our Jobs. She even let him sleep with her :-) Jobs enjoyed his stay! We;ll be back again!
Loretta did fantastic with Kronos! He came back tired and happy! Its pretty hard to tire out a puppy! Thanks again Loretta!
Loretta was fantastic with Abby. We left Abby with her for 10 days. She went above and beyond to make sure she was comfortable. My dog ended up being sick while I was away and she cooked up rice to mix with her food to help her with her digestive issues. She also kept in touch whenever I sent a message her way.

Her house has a nice big back yard for the dogs to roam around in. She also has multiple (big) dog beds for when the pups are inside.

Loretta truly cares for the dogs she is watching. I would definitely use her again in the future without any hesitation.
My dog Charlie came home happy and healthy but it looked like he gained weight. Apparently, he was stealing the other dog's food. He was raised with two litters of 12 puppies in a large pen and they fed them in a square pan where only 4 could get to the pan at a time and as he was the starved runt, food is always on his mind. He will have to be fed outside or in another room next time, if she'll take him again. Apparently, he bit her when she tried to stop him from eating the other dog's food. So, sorry Loretta! Luckily, he only had one eye tooth left.
Rosie had a great 3 weeks with Loretta. Would highly recommend her. I hope Rosie would be welcomed back as we would use her again. Thanks Loretta!
Mister was in wonderful hands during our trip out of the country! Loretta is very careful, detailed and is very knowledgeable. Mister has been a little sad after leaving her loving home.
Loretta provided great care for our "senior" dog with his special medication needs. Her house is very nice and well kept. The large yard is dog friendly and fully fenced. We will certainly send our dog to visit again!
We were comfortable leaving Rocky with Loretta. Rocky is a puppy going through his teething stage and was anxious without seeing us for few days. But Loretta gave him lot of attention and love, kept updating us with emails.
Maci had a great time with Loretta, she was well loved and taken care of. I felt completely at ease leaving her with Loretta for the first time.
Loretta is a wonderful, caring dog sitter. Our 2 dogs each has its own vet-prescribed diet, and one of them has a heart condition that requires several meds 3 times a day. Loretta has dealt with dogs that need meds and more attention in the past and had no qualms taking care of our "babies." Turned out Loretta proved herself to be quite a trooper and especially caring when our heart-condition dog Maggie had diarrhea and vomiting. Loretta ended up taking Maggie to the vet 3X in 8 days! Even the vet commented that Loretta was very loving to our Maggie. Loretta certainly gave our dogs the same loving care that we would. I do not hesitate in recommending her.
Loretta is absolutely the best! She took such a good care of our doggies. We couldn't pickup our dogs on time and she was waiting for us very patiently. We all appreciate it very much.
Loretta is wonderful! She took such great care of my elderly golden retriever, Maddy. She really knows and understand dogs and goes the extra mile to give them care and attention.
Loretta is such a great sitter. Kiya loves going to see her and staying with her. We feel like we're leaving Kiya with a family member. Loretta treats Kiya like her own.
Loretta is very kind and was amazing with Zoe. We traveled from Ohio to attend a wedding in Seattle and we knew once we dropped Zoe with Loretta for the night that she was in good hands. We were very pleased with our experience and with Loretta. We highly recommend her!
Loretta is the best doggie sitter around! She provided warm and loving care for our two little dogs. She catered to my dogs needs and totally pampered them whether it be a big plush dog bed in her living room, dog walks and even letting them sleep on her bed if they so desired.

She made sure one of my dogs received her medications every day and is very amenable to any type of care your dog needs.

Loretta has a cozy rambler in Renton that is easy to get to. She also has a nice fenced in yard for your dog to run around in.

When you meet Loretta you can tell she is a dog person and a people person.

Loretta books up quickly so if you are interested her dog care expertise better get ahold of her early :) This is the first time we had Loretta care for our dogs and we plan to have her care for Buster and Gracie in the future.

Maggie and Sara seem to really enjoy their time at lorettas
This is my second time boarding Backpack with Loretta and he had a great time both times! Loretta is very kind and pays close attention to detail. For example, when she noticed my dog's harness wasn't fitting him properly, she adjusted it for him. From talking with her and seeing how she interacted with my dog, I could tell that she really cares about dogs and also knows a lot about how to take care of them and train them.

I highly recommend Loretta to anyone looking for a dog-sitter.
Loretta is the best!! She gave our Sunshine so much love and attention. She had several pills and pain meds to get into Sunny and it was no easy task. But Loretta has many dog skills. You can't go wrong using Loretta to watch your fur person.
We had already booked Loretta to watch our puppy while we were away for our daughter's wedding. We realized we needed one more day and Loretta was so accommodating. She was more than happy to keep Kiya an extra day.
This is the first time we left our Kiya with Loretta. We love Loretta and we know Kiya does too. Loretta naturally loves dogs and it shows in how she cares for dogs and thinks about every detail when it comes to taking care of them. Loretta took Kiya for walks and kept her very busy with playtime. She even worked with her on walking with her leash. We love Loretta!
We were looking for a dog sitter for our 10 m.o. large Lab puppy a few months before our planned 2 weeks long vacation involving the 4th of July, and checked a few sitters before we met Loretta. We wanted to make sure that we can secure a great place for Coco to stay while we're not with her for a few days. As soon as we met Loretta, the decision was made immediately: clean house and large backyard with a lot of space for the doggies to wonder around, and not more than 2-3 dogs at the same time. We were not disappointed. Our pup looked and felt great, and was happily running back and forth inside the house when we came in to pick her up. :)
Great location on our way to/from the airport, and Loretta is very flexible on drop off/pick up time and procedure. The only thing I can think of that would be nice to have would be to get some updates from her while we were on vacation, but hey, we were too busy enjoying our time off and did not ask ourselves either!
Dog is very comfortable at Loreta's
Definitely recommend! Loretta was very experienced and patient to our dog. We got pictures and feedbacks everyday when we were traveling.
My miniature Schnauzer was very happy at Loretta's. She is warm and caring and has a great ways with dogs. She has a very spacious and secure backyard so I had no worries! Barney felt right at home. I will be going back very soon!
I would highly recommend Loretta.
Loretta was just perfect for our Sunny. Sunny is an older dog who has slowed down a lot and Loretta knew just how to meet her needs. Sunny loved her from the minute she met Loretta.
Our fussy little dog seemed right at home with Loretta!
Loretta was very nice and has a big house and also a big secure back yard for lots of outdoor fun.
Loretta was wonderful with Coco Bear..we will book with her again. Thank you
Loretta was wonderful, kind and loving! Thank you so much - we are looking forward to see her again.
Our dog Bailey was in good hands with Loretta. She kept us up to date on Bailey's activities (mostly playing in her lovely backyard) and I know Bailey received lot's of love from Loretta and her family. We've already booked her next stay :)
It was such a great experience we are planning to use Loretta in the very near future
Casey, my 15 month old energetic lab/husky mix had a great time with Loretta. She kept him busy, which he loves, and came back a very happy pup
Both dogs were relaxed, happy and healthy after their stay with Loretta. We are already making our next reservation.
This was Elsie's second stay with Loretta, and we are 100% satisfied. It's clear that Loretta loves animals, and it shows in the way that animals react to her.
We feel very comfortable to leave our dog with Loretta. She pays a lot of attention to my dog. My dog looks very happy staying with her.
My Bouviers had a wonderful time with Loretta. She insisted on a "meet and greet" and it was clear by the dog's reaction to her and her spread, that they would be safe and happy with her. My male, a 7.5 year old whom I adopted at age 3 (with a laundry list of issues) has come a LONG way in the 4.5 years I've had him-- but the only times I have left him with someone was when I boarded him with professional dog trainers. This was an experiment-- leaving them with a DogVacay host-- and it was a massive success. There really are not many I would have considered leaving him. This was an excellent choice and 100% successful for him and my old 15 year old girl.
Loretta was reliable, clear, extra-helpful, warm and friendly....We really appreciate having met Loretta. She took wonderful care of our dogs while we were gone. We are looking forward to have Loretta take care of our dogs again in the future
Loretta clearly loves dogs as much as we do (and that's A LOT!). She took excellent care of our two dogs during our 2 week Hawaii vacation, including lots of personal attention. It was wonderful to know that the dogs were spending their time as they do at our home - i.e. free to roam, play, nap, and sleep in the house, and use the large fenced yard when allowed outside.

We could not be happier!
