About Louise

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! This upcoming summer will be 4 years hosting thru Dogvacay & what a great experience it has been! We have met some truly incredible dog owners & their pups & have also made some lasting friendships...human & canine! A big thank you to everyone who has posted a review...we appreciate it so much!

We are an active family of seven! Five humans, and two dogs! We have two very friendly and playful dogs, Maya and Bijou. We also volunteer as a foster family for a Long Island based rescue, so our dogs are very comfortable with meeting new BFFs! We have a fully fenced in yard that opens up onto a giant field (it is locked at all times when not in use). My husband and I have been dog owners for over thirty plus years.
Whether for an overnight stay or an extended vacation, it is a time for you to enjoy and relax- so we would love to help you do just that!

*First-time "pet guest" I always suggest a meet-n-greet beforehand so we all feel comfortable especially our pups!
*Puppies must be housetrained.
*Overnight "pet guest" please note later pick-ups (after 5:00 pm) would charge $20 for the day.

If you're looking for an experience caring host for your dog, Louise is a perfect fit. My dog Lacey felt completely comfortable when we arrived at the home of Louise. Louise kept us informed with pictures and messages of our dog Lacey. I believe I made the right choice of hiring Louise to care for my dog while I was away.

WONDERFUL TIME AGAIN FOR STRIKER!!!
It was a pleasure to drop off Striker with Louise for a second stay. I felt completely at ease and Striker felt at home again. A million thank you's are not nearly enough to LOUISE and her family for taking such amazing care of our Golden Boy!!!! THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER!
Thanks so much, we look forward to another pleasurable booking with you!

I can't enough about how happy we are to have found Louise!! Max enjoys staying there and we feel totally comfortable leaving him. She sends daily texts and pics to let us know he is doing good. He has stayed a few times and will be returning in the future!

Our puppy Striker had a wonderful time and stay with Louise! She is wonderful, this was our first time being away from our baby golden since we got him last June. But from the first time we met Louise and her husband at the meet and greet I was so happy we had decided to try her out. Striker felt comfortable as well as myself and my son. I was at ease when we dropped him off and even though we missed Striker, Louise kept us updated with photos and videos which brought smiles to our faces. Striker came home just as happy as we left him, he was so very well taken care of I'm so happy to have met her and hope to continue our connection when the need arises. I would highly recommend Louise to any puppy parent who's looking for a good puppysitter. THANKS A MILLION LOUISE!!!

Thank you helping us to have peace of mind when leaving Sadie

We couldn't be more delighted with Lou and Louise. Our Kona was loved, pampered and taken care of just as if she were at home!
I think Louise is the best!! From the moment I met Louise, she clicked with Oscar and myself! She hugged and petted him right away. Oscar loves her. I did not have a worry in the world while we were away. Louise sent daily updates and video's of our little guy. He was right at home.

Louise was an incredible host to our pup, Jack! I could tell immediately that we were leaving him in the right hands. Louise even sent a few picture updates during Jack's stay to reassure us that all was going well. Louise is very prompt in her responses to any questions we throw her way. I would strongly recommend her for anyone looking for a home away from home for their furry friend(s)!

Once again we couldn't recommend Louise highly enough, bubbles will be back soon
Ginger seemed like she had a great time, she really loved being around the other dogs. Both Louise & her husband were very nice. Sent me videos of her which was reassuring to see her having a great time. She even seemed a little sad when she came home!! I think she missed her friends! Would definitely have her stay there again! What a great service, so much better then a kennel by far!!

This was the second time we have used Louise for our dog Glory. The first time was just one night - this time it was 5 nights. Louise sent us pictures and even a video which helped us to feel close to her and we knew she was happy and well taken care of. Louise is a keeper and we are so glad we found her.

Louise took wonderful care of my Samantha. She addressed my concerns and made me feel very comfortable leaving my puppy with her and her family. We will be back again!
Glory came home very happy and seemed to get along very well with the hosts and their dogs. We are so happy to have found them!
Louise was wonderful. First, she was extremely accommodating when it came to dates and times for drop-off and pick-up. She kept me update with pictures and videos throughout the time we were apart. She also responded promptly to any texts or messages I sent. My pups, as in 2, seemed extremely comfortable and happy with her. They came back completely healthy and happy, and she followed their routine so well, that transition was not a problem at all.

Once again bubbles had a great vacation with Louise, she will be back! Louise kept in contact with us giving us regular pictures and updates on how bubbles was doing which gave us real peace of mind during our trip. Couldn't recommend Louise highly enough

Pepper is right at home in this wonderful home! Louise and her family treat Pepper like one of the family! A great experience!
I have said it before......As usual Max loves going there, they love having him.....We never have to worry about leaving him with Louise! I can't say enough!!
Louise and her family are great! I got pictures and even a video while we were away. Both our dogs looked so happy and well cared for. Very happy - we will be back!
louie and lou really care about each dog they take in, as if they were friends of the family. my lucy has been with them before and always looks up the walk whenever we pass by their house, she would tell me she wants to stay forever, i am sure, if she could talk. Thank you!

My husband and I were going out of the country on vacation for about a week, however, we were extremely nervous about where we were going to leave our dogs. In the past we had friends or family stay at our house, which unfortunately didn't work out this time.
We decided to setup a meet and greet to check out Dog Days B&B. The meet and greet went fantastic! We were given a tour of the house, backyard, etc and everything was very safe, and secure. The owners even worked with us in setting up a way for us to talk while out of the country. However, we are dog nuts, and were still a little nervous. We spoke with the owners and they were very reassuring. They even setup a second meet and greet.
Eventually the day of reckoning came and we had to drop the dogs off. We went over everything with the owners, which was a lot, and no request was deemed too much.
The entire week we were gone we received daily updates of our two dogs, which included pictures and videos! The owners were in constant contact with us the entire time and responded to all our messages. We felt completely at peace knowing our dogs were in excellent hands!
When we returned from our trip we went directly to pick up our dogs. We came to find out that our dogs were fantastic and had a blast! Would highly recommend Dog Days B&B in Westbury to anybody. In fact, we no longer plan on begging our friends and families to watch our dogs when we go away. They have a second home in Westbury.

As before, Louise is such a sweet caring person. Her family is lovely and loves dogs too. They took very good care of our Sanka and we will drop him off again next week.
Bubbles was very happy with Louise and we are very comfortable with her being there. See will definately be back
When I picked up my two little guys, they seemed happy and comfortable. In fact, my older dog, who is completely attached to me, didn't even seem that excited to see me. Usually, when I leave him anywhere, even at the groomer's, he jumps all over me and licks me to death when I pick him up. So by him not doing this, it showed he had a good time and was happy being with Louise and her family!

Another great stay with Louise! Thank you for taking care of Sandy....we always know she is in good hands when she is with you!
I believe I have reviewed Louise before but just in case I didn't... Louise and her family surely love dogs. You will feel that you furry family member is in good hands. They are very loving, warm, and nurturing. My dog was very happy and came home healthy, not like some of my other experiences with really upset stomachs. We just loved them and will definitely use them again.

As soon as I turn my car onto Louise's block, Joie gets excited! She loves coming to spend time with Louise and her family (human and canine) and always comes back home happy, healthy and well-cared for! Thank you, Louise!
Louise and her husband Lou are some of the best!!! They are very accommodating and we feel very comfortable leaving Max with them. She sends updates and pics and he enjoys going there. We were a bit nervous at first, but after the meet n greet we found that all the previous reviews were correct. Both of her dogs are very sweet and Max gets along with them perfectly. He will be going back!

Loki had a great time ! Louise and her family made Loki feel at home . We enjoyed our daughter's wedding k owing he was in good hands . Thank you Louise !!
Louise and her family are the best! This was the first time we ever left "Ace" with anyone and we were sad to drop him off overnight (for our wedding). Louise texted us pictures of Ace and his new friends playing in the backyard and it made us feel a lot better. When we picked him up today, She had him all packed up neatly and ready to go. He was actually a little bummed to be leaving! I would recommend Louise in a heartbeat!

Louise and her family are great! They are all so kind, caring, and accommodating. From Louise to her husband, to her kids, to her mother - they are all dog people. Their dogs are so sweet too. I left my 1 year old Shih Tzu, Lacey, with Louise twice so far for overnight stays and I couldn't be more pleased. Louise sent me a text with a picture and update while Lacey was there. It really is such a wonderful feeling to leave Lacey with such a great family and know that she will be well loved and cared for. Thank you! Lori

Louise is very caring and you know your dog will be in good hands. Trixie had such a good time with Maya she over-exerted herself! Louise continued to care for her appropriately. After a few days of rest at home, Trixie is as energetic as usual.
Louise is Wonderful! We needed to leave our doggy last minute for a few days and she understood our situation and was able to accommodate us. Not only is she helpful but she is warm and welcoming and treats guest pups like her own. Our dog Junior loved her house so much that he didn't want to leave! Every evening she would send us an update and a picture which we appreciated soo soo much. To be honest, I wasn't worried about Junior for one minute and knew he was in great hands. I recommend Louise and her family to anyone who needs to use DogVacay! I can't thank her enough! We are definitely coming back to her in the future!

It was another amazing "dog vacation" for Pepper! Louise makes it easy for us to leave our pet in her care. She is attentive and professional and always makes us feel very comfortable. Pepper loves all the attention and is always happy to be there!

My wife and I feel very lucky to have had Louise and her husband Lou take care of our dog Milo. Even after reading all the great reviews we still had some reservations, understandably, but I gotta say everyone was SPOT on. Milo and I met their dogs at the meet and greet and they were super melo; they got along great! Louise and Lou were very accommodating with the meet and greet and drop off/pick up times. I would recommend them to anyone who is in need of boarding their dog. This beats boarding your dog at a vet 100%.

I can't say enough positive things about Louise. My two mini dachshunds stayed with her for 10 days while i was in europe. Prior to the stay we met louise and her dogs. I was worried about one of my guys being in a house with other dogs without me being there. The visit was great. Her dogs were so friendly and gentle. I left feeling confident about leaving them but i still had a few months before leaving on my trip. As the time drew near I worried. What if I had made a mistake, maybe I should leave them in my own home, so many doubts. I even considered calling to cancel. I never leave them with anyone and 10 days for me is very long. I remembered Louise and her husband and how she smiled and made me fwel comfortable and I realized that I was being silly. The moment of truth came as I was leaving for Italy and we were at her door. Needless to say, they(frank and beans) were comfortable from the moment we stepped into her house. I brought their toys and they started playing right away. Louise and her family welcomed my pups as if they were a part of their family. She sent me photos and updates during their stay to let me know how they were doing. She let me know that they were eating and playing which made me feel so much better and allowed me to enjoy my trip.We have all been home now for just a few hours and it is as if we never left. They are happy and tired from all of the playing that they did. I would absolutely leave them with Louise again. I have already told clients of mine about dog vacay and Louise.

Pepper had an amazing stay with Louise - as always! He really had his own vacation. Pepper is a member of the family when he is there and we always feel he is well taken care of. No worries at all. Louise is flexible and accommodating. Love the regular updates with photos!

Louise and her husband Lou were very warm and friendly to me and my husband and our dog. We (including our dog) felt right at home with them. They have three other dogs that were all very calm and dog-friendly types. They have a large fenced in yard and a very nice, clean home. Louise is loving and attentive to dogs and took care of ours with great care and abided by special requests regarding food and walks. She sent messages and photos about how our cock-a-poo was doing. We had done a meet and greet and a one night away before this. When we came back this time, our Sanka greeted her with lots of kisses and was so happy to see her. That told us a lot. We were very happy to find Louise on Dog Vacay and will definitely leave our dog with her again.

Louise (and family) always take such good care of our Max. When we booked our vacation, Louise was the first person I contacted to make sure she was available to watch him - would not have been able to totally enjoy our vacation otherwise. We know when we leave him there, he is well taken care of, makes friends and is treated like "one of the family." Especially love getting text messages and pictures of his stay there.

Louise is an expert with dogs. Her yard is very safe and sealed and her dogs are warm and friendly. She keeps in touch well, is flexible and easy to work with. Our dogs were happy and cozy at her house. I highly recommend her.
Louise, her whole family and her dogs are wonderful. They are all so sweet and warm. Our pups feel right at home there (our kids seem to also feel that way during drop-off - sorry Louise!).
Zody is very comfortable staying with Louise and comes home happy.
Louise took care of our maltese poodle for 10 days. When we picked him up - he was happy, healthy and a little sad to leave his new friends. She kept us updated with pictures and information about his days while we were on vacation. She let us bring his crate so he would be comfortable at night, as well as his own bed for naps during the day. He got lots of exercise and time playing outside, as well as attention from Louise and her family. We will definitely be using Louise again in the future!

I have been having trouble finding someone to watch my dogs for several years. After meeting Louise and her husband, I knew my dogs would be in good hands. They treated my two dogs like their own. My dogs were great when they came home! I will definitely use Louise again!

LOUISE IS FANTASTIC!! We just sent our dog to vacation with her and her family--Let me tell you.. He had such a great time, he's still a little bummed and misses his friends Olivia, Bijou and Maya!! Louise took such good care of him and sent me daily updates/pictures. She is so accommodating with pick up/drop off, it's unreal! To top it all off, she gave Kokie a goodie bag on his way home! Sweetest woman, very reliable! We will certainly send our puffball to vacation with her every time we're away!

Rikki had a great time. I was very nervous leaving him for 9 days since he has separation anxiety. Louise kept me updated with pictures and emails. I will definately use her again next time when we go out of town.
I was under a tight timeline to look for a dog sitter (less than five days). The fact that I just moved to Long Island two months ago didn't help either. I used dogvacay and saw Louise's profile. After reading all the reviews on her profile, I got the impression that Louise is very sweet and accommodating and she is exactly that! We scheduled a meet a greet to make sure her three dogs got along with mine. Her packs are all very well behaved and sweet girls. Louise's family also greeted us with enthusiasm too. Her house has plenty of space and yard space for my dog to run around. I was sure that i can trust her with my dog. To add to the complication, my flight was changed due to a blizzard and Louise was very accommodating. While I was away, she sent me daily updates of how my dog was doing. I looked forward to that email everyday. I will trust Louise with my dog everytime i go on vacation now.

I felt very comfortable leaving Zody with Louise and her family. Zody had a great Time!! I would leave her again with Louise.
This was Hobo's second stay with Louise. The last one was 7 months ago. Hobo was so excited to go to Louise's that he bolted from the car and through her front door! That's when you know your dog is getting great care and is happy to be there. Thanks again Louise for being so accommodating and giving Hobo a great play date for the week-end!

Louise R. is an amazing hostess, very accommodating to my doggies special needs and quirks.
She was also extremely accommodating in allowing me to drop off my dog, Charlie, very early in the morning so I could make my flight. As well as letting me pick him up at Midnight when my flight came in (I couldn't spend another night without him ;-) )
Charlie was very well cared for and made some new canine friends as well, Louise kept me updated with daily texts and pics
Don't even hesitate about selecting Louise and her family to watch your dogs, couldn't have been a more loving home.

I have left my dog with Louise a number of times and I have been so happy with my dog's care. He is always happy and excited to go there.
This was our first experience with DogVacay and I could not ask for a better experience. I tried out Louise for 1 night prior to booking her for an extended stay. She was amazing! Rikki had a great time and she even sent me a picture of him during his stay. I will not have any hesitations in the future leaving Rikki with her. It was like camp for him.

We have always left our dog with his breeder or with family. As this was not possible for this trip we decided to try dogvacay. Louise and her family were wonderful. We had a meet and greet beforehand and I had no qualms about leaving our dog with her. He had no problem fitting in. In fact, I think it was a vacation for him as well as he had other dog companions. I would definitely have our dog stay with Louise and her family again no doubt about it.

This was my first Dogvacay experience and I hit the jackpot. Jasmine seemed to feel right at home from the meet and greet. I was very comfortable that she was in good hands and even received several pics of her clearly enjoying her stay.
It was again such a positive experience with Louise. Oreo was well taken care of and we did not need to worry at all about him adjusting in their home. Oreo seems little sad leaving his playmate Maya:(....He would love to go back there and play with her. Thank you Louise:

Louise and her husband Lou are delightful, straightforward people. We were comfortable with them from the first minute, and never had a moment's unease during the two days that we left our poodle Gigi with them. Louise sent updates and photos by text. Louise and Lou have two dogs of their own and were fostering a third, so Gigi had playmates. When we picked her up, Gigi looked happy, as though she had been away at camp! We will definitely be back and would recommend Louise very highly.

My husband and I were attending a wedding near Louise's home so we decided to drop our 4 month puppy off with her and her family. Louise and her family were so welcoming when we arrived! They gave us a quick tour of their beautiful home and fenced in backyard. Anya quickly adapted to her new environment and completely forgot about my husband and I! This was our first time leaving her with a sitter and I was a bit worried. Louise took the time to send me a text/picture of Anya playing and my worries melted away! We couldn't have asked for a better family to watch over our puppy. We are looking forward to contacting Louise in the future when we are out in LI again. Thank you again!

Daisy had the best time with Louise and her family. I was so at ease on vacation knowing that Daisy was in a loving home and was treated like part of the family! I would highly recommend Louise and when I have plans to go away again I will definately call on Louise again! Thanks again!!

We had booked our vacation before we adopted Max. When the time came to actually leave him, it was extremely hard. Leaving him with Louise and her family was the best thing. He was treated as one of their own dogs. It really gave us peace of mind knowing not only was he was in in such good care, but he was being loved and played with as if he was at home. He made some friends - which was something new to him and this was a great experience for him. He probably had as much fun on his vacay as we did on ours! Also, we loved getting text messages and pictures from Louise keeping us posted on his stay with her. Without a doubt, if the occasion arises where we would have to leave our Max with someone again, we would definitely leave him with Louise.

Great experience from beginning to end!
Louise is wonderful. I was going away for the weekend and couldn't get anyone to watch my little guy for a weekend night because i was traveling to florida for a wedding. Louise was absolutely amazing because she was able to take him in last minute and i was able to pick him up as late as 11pm due to my flight being delayed. From the moment he was dropped off i already knew he was in great hands. This was truly a dog vacay for him because i knew he enjoyed himself, especially with the other dogs. They even gave him a nickname "Shadow" because he loves to play with his shadow lol. I would rate Louise 6 stars but there isn't a option for it so 5 will just do. I highly recommend others to send their dogs to Louise.

Back yard is fully enclosed, her dogs are very friendly and Louise, husband and son all make your furbaby feel welcome. I would definitely recommend Louise and her home to all. My boy had a great vacation there and I look forward to using her again.
Louise is very sweet! Oreo had such a great time! She accomadated Oreo's all needs and more! It was a pleasure experience and with peace of mind at the same time! She kept us updated every other day with txt and picture of Oreo! I thought that was such a sweet gesture! I think Oreo would love to go back there soon! :)

Another great stay for our dog! Thanks Louise!
Louise was a wonderful dog sitter. Her kind and gentle personality enabled my dog to feel welcomed in her home. She kept me updated with texts and photos. I would definitely use her again.
I felt Bacci was in very capable hands, and I felt very comfortable in leaving him with such a loving family. She even sent me a picture so I could see how happy he looked!
Louise and family were great! They took Hobo for the week-end when our previous host had a personal emergency causing her to back out at the last minute. We received text messages and photos to reassure us that Hobo was having a really nice time. He played well with their beautiful dog Maya and had fun playing fetch. We are so grateful we didn't have to cancel our week-end plans! Thanks Louise!

Peaches loved being at Louise's house! She sent me photo texts every other day and took her to the dog park. She had plenty of outside time to romp around and play.

We felt so relaxed and confident upon meeting Louise and Lou - they are true dog lovers.

She made a new best friend in their dog, Maya too!

Louise was great! From the first time I meet her I knew she was a pet lover. She was very accommodating and made us feel very comfortable. She has a great yard that I was able to see before I booked with her. Thanks again Louise for a great first time experience using DogVacay!

What a terrific experience we had from ---beginning to end! We had been boarding our dog, Pepper, with a major pet store for over a year, but always felt that he was not getting any personal attention. With our Dogvacay.com family, we felt that Pepper was a part of the family from the start. He was there for 9 days and seemed to adjust quickly and easily. Pepper had a couple of other dogs as playmates there and I think he liked that part the best. The host was extremely responsive to every request, was very experienced with different kinds of dogs and really seemed to know how to integrate our dog into the mix without any trouble. We highly recommend Louise as a host for Dogvacay.com. Hopefully, Pepper will have many more vacations with this host!
