About Billy and Lori

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, our names are Billy and Lori and we are a married couple with a passion for animals. You can rest easy knowing your pup will be safe, secure and well loved and cared for in our home.

We live on beautiful Chebacco Lake in South Hamilton on a quiet, dead end street. We have 2 pugs named Sookie and Sadie and 2 girls ages 15 and 8 who are also big animal lovers.

Billy is able to work from home so your pup will never be left alone. We take the dogs for many walks throughout the day and love to play outside with them. Many of the pups really enjoy swimming in the lake!

Your pup is more than welcome to sleep in bed with us or lounge around anywhere they feel comfortable. They will be treated like part of our family.

We can be reached at any time on our cell phones and would love to send you pictures of your pup happily playing and having fun in our home.

Why lock your dog in a kennel all day and night when they could be having a vacation at our house!

Our rates are as follows:

Boarding $45/night for first dog
Each additional dog $25/night

Daycare $35/day

The dog was very happy and tired. She integrated back home seamlessly. They sent lots of pictures. The dog looked very comfortable and playful and happy. Our corgi charmed them! They want a corgi of their own now. Lol.
Lori and Billy were great hosts from start to finish. They responded to our last minute request immediately and kept in constant touch with us with pics and videos throughout our dog Jolies stay. Jolie had a great time playing with the other dogs inside and out. We felt very comfortable and would definitely recommend them.
Our Poppy had a great stay with Billy and Lori M. She can't stop talking about It! We look forward to another visit soon.
Bill and Lori were great hosts! It was hard to say who was having a better vacation Osa or her parents! This was the first vacation that we didn't have to feel guilty over leaving her behind. The daily pictures were priceless and let us know that our baby was having a great time.
A great day for my two pugs Monty and Chico! They love playing with other dogs and the flexibility of allowing them to stay longer on Tuesday while I was gone for most of the day and into the evening was so helpful!
Bill an Lori did a wonderful job taking great care of Finn for 7 days while we were away. From pictures every day, to a great understanding of our dog's little quirks, we never once worried. We will definitely be using them the next time we have to leave Finn behind - and I think he will look forward to it!
Our 2 dogs are repeat guests with Billy and Lori - they take tons of pictures of all the fun and the huge smiles on our dogs faces say it all - this is a wonderful, thoughtful, dog-loving family!!
Billy and Lori are the best hosts anyone could ever ask for - they adore our dogs like they were family, it's what keeps us coming back! thank you!
Billy and Lori watched our 8 month old labrador retriever, River, this past weekend while my now-husband and I got married and I truly believe that River had more fun than we had at our wedding! Lori was so helpful leading up to the reservation, telling us exactly what we needed to know. As soon as I dropped River off, he was running around and playing...having the time of his life. Billy and Lori provided updates throughout the day, which was comforting to us as new puppy parents. And it showed us how much he loved swimming in the lake. He didn't want to leave when we came back to pick him up! I wouldn't hesitate to have River stay with them again in the future.
Billy and Lori were great. Excellent communication throughout the process. They sent pictures of my dog playing and she was very happy. I don't think she wanted to leave! I would recommend!
Our 1st experience with dogvacay couldn't have gone better or been any easier with Billy & Lori. We had a wedding in MA & needed a place for our lab pup. Billy, Lori and their girls were great & welcoming. They sent us pictures of our dog swimming in the lake. He had a fantastic time swimming & playing. Would definitely use them again if we're in the area. Thanks so much to you for taking such good care of Fen! He loved it & so did we! Gen & Art
We so delighted with our experience with Lori and Billy. Our lily stayed for 3 nights and 4 days and was cared for as though she were with family. I received daily pictures of her playing outside, sleeping in Lori/ Billy's bed and many more! We will definitely call them again and highly recommend this family for all animal lovers that need a home while you are away. Thank you Lori and Billy!!
I have been recommending them to all of our friends!
This is our first time using DogVacay and it could not have been better. Before we decided on a vacay home for our Primo we asked a lot of questions and received quick responses every time. Once we decided on Billy and Lori there was a short get together to introduce everyone and then when Primo was dropped off we were given so many wonderful updates and pictures it was like we were there. You could sense through the messages how much they enjoyed having our boy with them and how well they were taking care of him. By the way, all this was done over the internet, phone, and through friends since we were out of the country for this time and while I am very protective of Primo, I had complete trust in Billy and Lori.
My worries about leaving such a young dog (3 months) and a new dog for me, evaporated completely. First of all, this family knows what the are doing. They provide a safe and fun environment, and clearly they love doing it. They have two delightful daughters who shower all the attention and love any dog would want. And my dog wants a-lot! I am so happy I have found such a reliable and responsive family to take care of my dog. It's a relief to have found a place where I can leave my dog and not feel guilty. I will be using their services for day trips as well as longer vacations, and will recommend them to my friends.
This was our first time using DogVacay and we had a great experience. Billy and Lori have a great spot on a lake, and Martin was so happy swimming and playing with the other dogs. When we got him home, he slept ALL DAY...he was so well exercised (and socialized)! We got picture updates a few times a day and great reports from them. We would definitely bring Martin back again when we need overnight boarding.
Thank you SO much, Billy and Lori, for the great attention and love you gave our Toby last Thursday!
Being a 17 1/2 year-old Westie, and in among lots of water action, dogs, and fun in your yard, we were curious to see how he'd do on his first day. Thanx for sending pix halfway through the morning. It was heartwarming to see how much he was enjoying himself. We were thrilled to see our old guy having a ball, splashing, swimming and getting on just fine with all his new canine friends. Billy gave me a very detailed rundown of Toby's day and how he did when I came to pick him up. It's so obvious how much your family loves dogs, and I feel so lucky to have found you guys. Lori, you are a gem, too - always so quick to respond to emails and answer all my questions so thoroughly. We won't have one worry knowing Toby will be in the best hands possible when we go away on our 17-day trip in September!
Billy & Lori and their daughters were Awesome!!! Rafa had such a fun week playing with the other dogs that were staying with them as well as their 2 pugs!! It was a great experience for our puppy to be around friendly dogs all week and play with them!

Lori sent us multiple pictures every day of Rafa which was so great since he is a puppy and has only been part of our family for 3 weeks! We looked forward to the daily updates and it made us feel really comfortable and great with our decision to have him stay with them!

Great people & Great Family! They love dogs!! He even learned how to swim!! Rafa will definitely be going back to visit & stay when we go away!

Thank you so much for taking care of our new "baby"!!!
Billy & Lori were wonderful! Their relaxed and welcoming home is a perfect place for pets- with the bonus of a lakefront location for dogs who like to swim (or just walk/wade- as our Danny Boy prefers). We will definitely try to book future vacays with them.
We had a great experience with Billy and Lori. They live in a beautiful location right by the lake. Our dog cinnamon didn't mind a bit that we left. While we were gone Lori sent us pics of our girl having a blast. We will definitely book again with them!
Billy and Lori both greeted Mac and I as we arrived and were very friendly and informative.

The setting was idealic -- Mac was able to swim in the lake and visit with Billy and Lori's family. He got all the excercise he needed.

I would definitely bring Mac or our other dog for day care or a boarding stay again.
Maui has a great time with Billy and Lori because he loves hanging out with lots of other dogs! When I have a super long weekend work day I'm so much more comfortable knowing he is having a good time and his needs are being met. I dropped him off at 7:30am on a Sunday and it was no problem.
Lori and Billy are awesome sitters! It's clear from the first minute you meet them that they love dogs and they'll love yours just as much as their own. They have a beautiful big yard at the end of a dead-end street and their property sits on a lake. Our puppy Tasha took her first swim there with them this weekend and we could tell she loved it by the photos Lori and Billy sent us. There were a couple of other dog guest dogs there with Tasha so she got in lots of puppy socialization practice. She came home exhausted from her really fun weekend with Lori and Billy. I highly recommend them!
Another great stay for our poodle pup. Freddie loves his vacations with Billy and Lori. He's so happy and bouncy when we pick him up. He's found his home away from home!
Billy and Lori took such great care of my Samoyed that I find myself returning to them for day care! My Sammy has severe separation anxiety and has great difficulty with transitions. After only a few days in Billy and Lori's care, she not only willingly and confidently scampers into day care each morning, but she comes home well-exercised, happy, and calm! I am grateful to have found such a loving, safe environment for my sensitive dog. Thanks to Billy and Lori's warmth and competence, separation is not an issue, and I can go to work each day with peace of mind. Thank you Lori and Billy!
Billy and Lori took care of our four month old puppy over a long weekend. Daily texts and photos reassured us that he was being well looked after while we were away and he was a bouncy, happy pup when we returned. We will be back!
Senorita had such a great visit. We often worry when trying a new dog sitter but Billy and Lori could not have been better hosts. They constantly updated us all day with photos. We would have her stay there anytime.
We couldn't of been more pleased Both Bill and Lorie where great they sent pictures everyday and let us know how they where doing . This was the first time we have gone away that a family member hadn't watch our dogs . It was nice to know they were in a great home. We would use them many more time and would recommend them 100%

My pig had a wonderful visit with Billy and Lori. They were accommodating and wonderful. Martin was well cared for. He had such a good time, he fell asleep in the car on the way home, and I had to wake him up to go into the house. I know he will be back,
I was very happy with the care Fonzie got. Lori and Billy are both very nice. I would definitely bring Fonzie back . Joanne B. Haverhill, Ma
Howie had a great time. He had fun playing with their pups, talking walks, and hanging out. I loved the contact from Lori and Billy, photos, texts. Felt very reassuring and I was able to relax too!! He came home a tired and happy pup!!
Billy and Lori are great! My dog absolutely loves going to stay with them.
Billy and Lori are super! We enjoyed a long weekend out-of-town because we knew our dogs would be in good hands with them. They updated us daily with photos and comments on how our dogs were doing. Unlike in some of our past experiences, our dogs returned home in exactly the same excellent condition as we had left them. Thank you, Billy and Lori!
Billy & Lori were very careful with Sadie. They took the trouble to send me pictures every day so i could see that she was playing and having a good stay. They are terrific hosts and I plan to have Sadie with them again.
Leaving our pups with Billy and Lori was a great experience. As a family who cares very much for our pups, leaving them is always a difficult experience but Billy and Lori made this so much better. The care they gave our dogs was tremendous. Our dogs literally played nearly every minute of the 10 days that they were with them - Billy was awesome with them. They went swimming, kayaking, paddle boating, and on excursions through the woods. Lori posted numerous pics of them throughout the time we were away so we could see how active and happy the pups were. We will definitely be leaving our boys with Billy and Lori again!!
Once again, everything went very smoothly. J has a great time whenever she there. Bill & Lori are most accommodating and very flexible with the drop off / pick up times which is a major benefit considering how fluid my hours tend to be. Bob
WE are so lucky to have found Bill and Lori. Barnaby is so happy and well cared for there. He loves their little girl and the pugs and especially their bed!
We felt bad picking Remi up because he was having so much fun with Billy and Lori! They are wonderful hosts and will take great care of your pooch. We knew Remi was getting lots of love and plenty of time to run and play... in fact, he was getting a lot more exercise than he usually does! The next time we have to go out of town, we won't think twice about leaving Remi with Billy and Lori... they truly are the best.
My dog loved staying with Billy and Lori. They have a great location, lots of open space, right on a lake. They clearly love dogs and keep them very active. Ella came home happy and tired.
We were so pleased with Barnaby's 3 night stay with Bill and Lori. They stayed in touch with photos that clearly showed him having a great time and playing well with others. We will be booking another stay with them in 2 weeks.
Marley was with Billy and Lori for 1 week and she loved it. swam, ran, went for long walks and played at the beach. She is so well attended to it is very comforting. I know when I leave Marley that she will be treated like their own. The pictures and updates are great to see.
I highly recommend Billy and Lori.
Thanks for the peace of mind,
Repeat stay, great setup where we know Jackie is safe & well taken care of. Also B&L are flexible with drop-off/pick-up times. Works really well for us. B
This is the most wonderful dog-loving family you will ever know! Billy, Lori, and their daughters took such amazing care of our two pugs - it was like an amazing summer camp experience for our dogs to be enjoying the outdoors, the lake, and the activity by day and the loving snuggles by night ... it was beyond 5-star treatment, this family is wonderful - makes me wish we vacationed more often so they could stay again - thank you so much!!
Willow had a fantastic time with Billy, Lori and their dogs. She swam all day, went out in a kayak, and fetched to her heart´s delight. There were plenty of other dogs around for her to play with, which was wonderful for her.

The pictures that Lori sent were wonderful, and put us at ease with our canine family member having her own vacation. We have no reservations about recommending them, and using them ourselves again!
It was great to bring my dog to a home and not a kennel. Bill and Lori took great care of my dog and I will definitely bring him back next year.
Lori and Billy took great care of Winston! We were a bit nervous about leaving him in a new environment, but Lori, Billy and their two girls were fantastic. Someone was always home, and they even allowed Winston to sleep in their bed. Lori sent us lots of pics and updates, and her whole family was warm and welcoming. Winston will be back!
Marley loves her stays with Bill and Lori! She swims, plays, walks and gets a lot of love. We have found the best place for Marley to be when we are gone, honestly the entire family is involved with playing and caring for the dogs. This family is 100% dog lovers and take fantastic care of their boarders. I don't think we will ever need to find a better place for Marley.
Lori, Billy and their family could not have been more welcoming to our dog, Bo. I would HIGHLY recommend them and am definitely going to use them again in the future. Bo was treated as a member of their 'pack' and loved every minute that she was there. They sent pictures every day and my text messages were always answered very quickly with the reassurances that Bo was doing great and having a fantastic time. They live in an amazing location, and I'm sure Bo had a fantastic vacation herself !!
Rocky had a great time and was very well taken care of! I will definitely use Billy and Lori again for dog care. They were so kind and accommodating. They have a great spot for the dogs to vacation! All in all it was a terrific experience for Rocky and for his family as well.
Billy and Lori could not have been more welcoming! Our dog was only there one night and clearly had a great time. He came home tired and happy! We will absolutely use them again!
Lori & Bill took excellent care of our boxer, Frasier, while we were on vacation! They sent us daily texts & emails with pictures of him playing with the other dogs & enjoying the water. He made himself right at home & was practically a part of their family by the time we came to get him. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We will DEFINITELY have Frasier over to Lori & Bill's again!
Our dog Marley had a great time at Lori and Billy's. She's a choc. lab and absolutely loved swimming and playing outside. They are located at the end of a dead end road right on Chebacco lake. Perfect, safe location for the dogs. The hosts are great and definitely love dogs as do their children. I am planning more overnights and a week with them because I'm so comfortable.
Stay went very well, nice that someone is there essentially all day. Also nice great that the location is on a dead end street - much more comfortable with that level of safety (J is not particularly car smart).

J also got to play with the kids and other dogs. Crazy to even consider a boarding kennel when options like this are available. Will easily use B&L again.

Lori and Bill were warm and loving with Roo, and reassured me easily even before we met that he'd be a happy pup with their daughters and their two pugs. I was a little nervous that Roo would be anxious around their seven-year-old, but they became buddies - a total surprise, and a wonderful picture of them playing made my day. Roo got to be one of the pack with their pugs, Sadie and Sookie, and everything went so smoothly from start to finish! Although I don't live in the area, and only needed Lori and Bill to care for him one night, I'd definitely send Roo to their loving home again, in a heartbeat.
Billy, Lori and their family were so welcoming with our five month old puppy. They were able to take the reservation with less than 24 hours notice. Their house is situated right on a lake which is the perfect setting for a puppy who loves to run! Lori sent us photos throughout our weekend away. When our plans ran really late and we needed to spend an extra night away, they were able to take a super last minute reservation. They brought Willougby in the lake, on a boat, for long walks...needless to say she will sleep for a week straight! I highly recommend Lori and Billy...they were the PERFECT find and are such a wonderful family.
We dropped our dog's to stay with Billy and Lori for a full day while we explored Gloucester with friends. We booked last minute, the night before, and they got back to us right away. Our dogs are 2 years old, high energy, 40 lb dogs and we were beyond happy with the daycare that was provided. It's now well into the following afternoon and our dogs are STILL pooped from a fun day of running and swimming (and from what we've heard, they got to make lots of friends with the neighborhood children). It was so nice to know that instead of having our dogs bored, locked in a house all day- they were having such a fun-filled time and well taken care of. Thank you SO much! If we are ever in the area again we would definitely want to use your services, and we HIGHLY recommend them to anyone else with similar needs.
We were so grateful for the care our dogs received while we were on vacation in April 2015. Seeing their pictures posted every day helped us rest easy that our dogs were having a great time in the care of Billy and Lori. I would highly recommend their services for ease of mind that your pets are truly having a vacation, just like you are!
I boarded my dogs with Billy and Lori. They took excellent care of them while I was away. I received photos of my dogs to keep me updated. They are very kind, caring, and experienced with dogs. I highly recommend them.
