About Lauren & Mark

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a fun-loving gal who believes that dogs and cats are some of God's greatest gifts to mankind. Simply, they are family members! My Golden Retriever is my furry best friend, so naturally, she has a lot of say so in my life. She is the one who convinced me that I'd make an awesome sitter/walker/etc. She said, "Mom, you take such great care of me, and you need to make some funds to buy me more toys and treats, so why not tell everyone about your skills and experience so that I can have tons of fun meeting new friends!?" I figured she had a point.

Growing up as an animal-lover, I chose jobs, such as pet-sitting and working at a boarding kennel for dogs, cats, birds, and other critters and even volunteered my time to animal shelters as much as I could. Working at the boarding kennel was a middle/high school job of mine. I enjoyed it so much that I went back to work there after college. Oftentimes the kennel owner would travel and leave the entire kennel business in my care. On average, I took care of 40-50 dogs and cats by myself, sometimes nearly 70 on holidays....Yes, I have started out my Christmas morning by feeding, playing with, and cleaning up after that many pets, whew! I catered to each of their special feeding instructions, medications, bathing, and unique qualities/personalities (escape artists, separation anxiety, fear of storms, aggression, etc). I did quite a bit of pet-sitting for family, friends, and even my school teachers (yep, I was always the "teacher's pet"). I've owned dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, rabbits, lizards, and fish.

Currently, my husband and I are available for overnight stays at your home, as well as drop-in visits and dog-walking. Diamond would love to have a play date, if your dog would enjoy spending time with a friend.
Feel free to contact me with absolutely any questions that you may have, and let's schedule a meet-and-greet. Looking forward to meeting your furry family members soon! :)

Just want to say how much we enjoyed meeting Lauren and Mark and knew right away that they would be perfect for our two hounds, which need a little more extra care. They were personable and interested in the way we care for our babies and made sure to let us know how they were when we were gone! We definitely recommend Lauren and Mark for anyone's pet sitting needs!!

Lauren was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed the meet and greet and communication was so easy after that. We felt at ease leaving our two greyhounds in her care and truly felt they were in great hands. We came home to two comfy and happy pups and could not be more thankful! We 100% recommend her and will definitely book future vacays. Thank you!!

Lauren and her husband were great! Our lab Frank had a lot of fun. Lauren took him to the dog beach and dog park, and he got to play with other dogs. Needless to say, he was very tired out when he got home!
