About Laura and Jonathan

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm Laura and my husbands name is Jonathan and we just love animals! We believe they are a big part of our lives and therefore require the best care possible. All of our lives we have been around dogs and know that they become part of the family. With us your pup will enjoy great outdoor fun and exercise. We have a big backyard with a pool that dogs love to explore. We have 3 years working as professional sitters in other well known sites and exercise great professionalism with you and your pet. We are very flexible with last minute bookings and don't mind long week stays. We have cared for dogs of all breeds and all sizes as well as special needs dogs. Specifically blind and deaf ones. I have a part time job locally and Jonathan works five minutes from our house therefore we have more time to give to your special friend. We hope to have the privilege of caring for your loved one! Any questions please feel free to ask.

About my HOUSE:
We live in a big 4 bedroom one story house with a big backyard and a pool. Its completely gated with a new fence and brick wall. Its surrounded with trees and bushes for exploring that Dogs love to sniff, play and run around back there. Your dog will have complete access to the yard and even jump in the pool for a swim on a hot day. It truly is a dog vacation! We let every guest dog sleep in the living area and prefer not to use kennels unless otherwise instructed by the owner. For more questions please feel free to contact us!

I loved meeting Laura, she was very welcoming and nice! She made it extremely easy to meet with her and seemed excited about getting started on DogVacay. She has a dog, Peluche, and it is clear from her interactions with him that she will be a great sitter.

Laura also had a large back yard with lots of running and play room. She will be a fantastic sitter for your pup!
After boarding my pup Rini overnight at a big name company, I was more than hesitant to leave her again at a boarding home but decided to try out DogVacay as I heard some good things about it. After searching and filtering out sitters, I found Laura and Jonathan's profile, and I don't think I will ever look back. They are more than wonderful and oh so accommodating to your pup's needs. We had set up an initial meeting to see if they would be compatible with Rini, and it was a match made in dog heaven. Laura had kept me updated every day via photos and messages with how Rini was doing and if there were any problems with her, which I truly appreciate. When I had gotten back from out of town, the difference I saw in Rini from her first experience with a boarding home to leaving Laura and Jonathan's was outstanding. She was happy and carefree, so I can only profusely thank them for their services. This is a home away from home.
Great experience! Laura and Jonathan took great care of our dog, Winter. They were very accommodating and responsive.
Thanks for having Max over the holidays! We loved getting the photo updates while he was staying with you and he seemed really happy and healthy when we came to pick him up. Lastly thanks for the framed photo of him--what a sweet thing to give us. We are looking forward for you to care for him next time we're out of town. Best, The Lyman's
Laura was great with our girl, Zoey. Very easy to communicate with and very flexible. Posted many picture updates, so we knew our girl was enjoying her vacay. Will definitely use Laura again.
Tippie and Rowdy had a good time.
My experience with them was fantastic! Great communication throughout the entire time, sending pics and videos. Very loving couple!
We had a chance to meet Laura and Jonathan before our dog, Bailey's vacay. I love that they have a huge backward for the dogs to run around! And it's a good way for for my puppy Bailey to mingle with other dogs. And I love that Laura and Jonathan updates us on bailey. Definitely something we feel comfortable about when we are not near Bailey. ????????
Thank you so much Jonathan and Laura! They kept me updated with texts and photos all weekend and they also gave me a sweet framed photo of my dog Timber after the weekend! So highly satisfied. :)
Lincoln had such a great stay with Laura and Jonathan! He came back happy and tired, which means he played his heart out. Linc also had an ear infection when I dropped him off, so I asked Jonathan to continue with ear drops until it cleared up (something I had forgot to warn about until that moment) - Jonathan was super agreeable to continuing the drops, and Linc came back with the infection completely cleared up. I also noticed that Linc was a lot cleaner when I picked him up than he had been at other places where I have boarded him in the past. On top of all of this, Jonathan gave me the cutest framed picture of Lincoln at the end of the stay. Laura and Jonathan went completely above and beyond - I could not recommend them more highly. I will 100% use them in the future.
Laura and Jonathan were very nice and caring about Ara (our lovely basset hound) since the very first moment she stepped in their home. From the pics and videos received every day we could see that Ara was happy and feeling comfortable like at home.

We received text messages frequently to let us know how she was doing (eating, sleeping, etc).

We fully recommend Laura and Jonathan. We plan on using Laura and Jonathan in the future!
Booti had an awesome time at Laura and Jonathan's! She came home exhausted from all the playing. They made sure to give her medicine daily, always send pics of her playing in the yard with other dogs, and even call with updates on how she was doing. I'll always use Laura and Jonathan and have already recommended them to a few friends!
This was our first time using DogVacay and we're so glad we chose Laura and Jonathan to care for our dog, Ketch. They were great host, very responsive and super friendly. They kept us updated with daily pictures and responded within minutes of sending them a message. Laura even gave us a present when we picked up our dog, so sweet! We would definitely book with Laura and Jonathan in the future.
Laura & Jonathan are great hosts! Very responsive to messages. Their home is extremely clean with a huge backyard oasis! Our dog, Max, was super happy when we picked him up. They even sent photos and videos while we were away. Their professionalism was truly appreciated. Would highly recommend!!
Our puppy must have had a wonderful time as he was pooped for the next day after his week stay over the holidays. This was our second reservation with John and Laura and I am certain there are more stays to come.
Laura and Jonathan were so great looking after our big furry babies. Their large back yard meant they got to spend a lot of time outdoors playing, and they came home exhausted! The photo frame that they gave us when we picked them up was such a sweet gesture. We will definitely be using these guys again, thank you!
Laura and Jonathan are great! They treat our dogs great- they go the extra mile to make sure they are happy and they ALSO Go that extra mile to make us happy- lots of photos and great communication. A++
always a good visit for Pepper with Laura and Jonathan
Laura and Jonathon were great hosts for my husky. They were super friendly, accommodating, and my pup came back clean and very tired - could tell he had a good time in the nice fenced in backyard! Will be booking with them again!
Laura and Jonathan are really nice and were a great host for my puppy. They kept me updated daily. I definitely would leave my dog again with them if needed.
This is my dog's third time with Laura and Jonathan. She loves to go to their dog friendly home and she loves the backyard paradise.
Awesome hosts. They take good care of my dog Sky.
Sky loves staying with Laura and Jonathan. They treat her as as if she was their own. I'll be leaving her with them again.
The best! The dogs love to stay with Laura and Jonathan. They get plenty of exercise and TLC. Would highly recommend them.
Laura and Jonathan are incredibly sweet and we had a great experience boarding our dogs with them twice already. They were really prompt in responding to texts. Their backyard with pool is an incredible playground for the pups and was one of the main factors in choosing them. Our dog Stamper LOVED playing fetch in the pool. They did an amazing job tiring out our dogs as they were super chill when we brought them back home. We loved the daily pictures of our dogs they sent us while we were out of town and the thoughtful gifts they gave us! Thank you Laura and Jonathan!
My three pups had a great stay with Laura and Jonathan. I received lots of pictures while I was on vacation and frequent updates. Our flight was delayed coming home and they were very accommodating. They even took a picture of all three dogs looking at the camera... which is almost impossible and framed it for us! =) I would definitely recommend them!
My high energy baby was well taken care of and had plenty of play time! Loved all the pics and the extras that Laura and Johnathan provided!
They were so nice to me and my furbaby! They provided daycare and my dog was truly excited to go back the next day. Before we got to their front door he started wagging his tail so hard he could hardly walk. I will make reservations with them again and would highly recommend them to everybody!
Laura & Jonathan are the sweetest couple and they took such great care of my 2 dogs while we were away. Laura agreed to a meet-n-greet prior to booking the vacay and I instantly knew they were a genuinely kind, loving couple that I could trust with my dogs. They have a one story home with a large backyard and my dogs had a great time running around back there. Laura set me daily updates and pictures so I was never worried about the dogs while I was away. When I came to pick them up they were both happy and tired! And the best part of their vacay was that Jonathan was able to get a great shot of both dogs together and so they framed it as a gift for me- that seriously is the sweetest, most thoughtful gift and I couldn't be more thankful. I would definitely recommend Laura & Jonathan for a doggie vacay and will definitely use them again in the future!
Laura and Johnathan we're great hosts to my dog Sky while I traveled. They kept me updated as how Sky was doing and sent me pictures of her. Sky seemed to have a great time running around the pool and was calmed while in the house. I will definitely be back with Sky when I travel. Thanks Laura and Johnathan.
Laura and Jonathan were amazing host to our lil but aging Gizmo. They were opening to working with our schedule,i.e, super early AM drop off on a Saturday (who does that??? only them cause they are awesome!). They sent us pictures of Gizmo having a blast at their house every couple of hours, and it was proven by Gizmo passing out in the car upon pick up and snoring the rest of his Sunday away. Last but not least, they are so sweet and gave our lil Gizmo a wittle present, a framed picture of Gizmo in their backyard, when we came to pick him up from their house. Overall, the best experience we have had with Dogvacay and there is no doubt in my mind that Gizmo will be staying with them whenever we go out of town
From the moment that we reached out to Laura and Jonathan we were reassured that they were the right couple to watch our dog! they were responsive, kind, and accommodating. We set up a meet a greet with short notice and they made our puppy feel right at home. They have an awesome house with a lot of room for the dogs to hang out. They have flexible schedules and spend a lot of time with the dogs. We received picture updates throughout the stay allowing us to enjoy our time without worrying about our puppy. We look forward to continue leaving our puppy with Laura and Jonathan!
Laura and Johnathan Are The Best!!!
Laura and Jonathan are the best! Took great care of pax and made my vacation worry free. They were great at communication, answered within a few minutes of any questions I had. We had a meet-and-greet before I dropped of pax and they showed me around their location, it is a Disneyland for dogs! They have a huge backyard for pax to run around. Best thing was pax didn't need to be caged up all day like the pet hotels I've previously placed pax in. They sent daily pictures of pax having a great time, morning pictures, bedtime pictures. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and know that pax was in good hands. I found my dogvacay place! Thanks again Laura and Jonathan. You guys are the best and pax can't wait for more vacay.
Laura and Jonathan were very very sweet. Unfortunately my dog ended up with a bacterial infection in his intestines after a stay of 6 days with them. Needless to say my pup and me won't be returning.
They were amazing! I left my two puppies with them for the weekend and they did a great job, they kept me up to date with pictures and messages, they were so sweet and kind! They even gave us a framed picture of my babies playing in their backyard, which I think it was an awesome detail. Thank you!
Laura and Jonathon are great. They have a great yard for the dogs to play and exercise and they are very attentive to the dogs. They are accomadstiong to pick up and drop off times. We plan to always use them in the future!
Great experience. My pup came back tired and happy. Slept for a full day after playing in Jonathan and Laura's backyard.
Best hosts that I have used in Houston. Constant picture updates, and I loved receiving a tired pup from playing so much. Thanks!
They were great. Misha looked to have a great time. I really appreciated that Laura and Jonathan sent texts daily with photos of the fun. They were very accommodating to my last minute reservation. Will definitely use them again!
Such great people who took great care of our pup!
Laura ad Jonathan were great hosts. They were very quick to respond and very cooperative regarding schedules. There were nothing but sil miles on theirs faces and positive vibes. Mitsu definitely enjoyed her stay. If she ever needs to be watched again, they will be one of my first choices. Thank you guys!
Connor had a great time! He was able to run and play! He came home very tired. Laura was very accommodating regarding drop off and pick up time. She sent pictures off my dog throughout his stay. Definitely will book them again!
Bruce had a great time at Laura and Jonathan's house! The backyard is big, and there were plenty of other dogs for him to play with! Laura was very responsive to all messages and very graciously extended Bruce's stay an extra day when my trip was unexpectedly extended. Will book again!
Hunter enjoyed his stay with Laura and Johnathon. They were so easy to work with and we will would definitely book with with them again without any hesitation.
Second time with Laura and Jonathan R. Still a phenomenal experience. Both dogs were well cared for. We received pictorial updates every day. The terrier actually behaved the whole time. Drop offs were easy. We will only book with Laura and Jonathan in the future.
Leaving our two children with Laura and Jonathan R was a phenomenal experience. Both dogs were well cared for. We received pictorial updates every day. The terrier actually behaved the whole time. Drop offs were easy. We will only book with Laura and Jonathan in the future.
Laura and Jonathan were extremely helpful with my furry friend, spud. They were receptive to what i had to say and gave spud the best vacation of his life. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a place to keep board their dog!
Laura and Jonatha took great care of my dog(Sake)while I was out of town for the weekend. They sent me texts and photos of Sake each day during the stay to keep me updated with how my dog is doing. I can have a peace of my mind and enjoy my vacation knowing that Sake is enjoying his stay as well. I'm very glad that I found Laura and Jonathan on DogVacay.
This doggy home rocks!! I was a newbie to DogVacay and not only did Laura and Jonathan agree to watch my Chiweenie last minute, but they also fit in a Meet N Greet! I could not have felt more at home with this family after meeting them. They were both fun, kind and super dog friendly!
This put me at peace while I left the state for my wedding in Colorado! I was sent daily texts and pics which made happy :) I would recommend them to anyone and would send Ruca back in a heartbeat! Thanks for the good work!
Oh, and PS their backyard is like Disneyworld for dogs. Just sayin ;)
I absolutely loved Laura and Jonathan. She sent me pics and videos and actually researched information on Pugs. Laura was so sweet, she knew I was scared about leaving him and made me so comfortable with everything. Can't wait to use this lovely couple again...:-)
Excellent communication. Very nice. I will definitely use them again.
They were very easy to schedule, quite friendly and accommodating! I was comfortable leaving my dog with them and they were good with her! I also appreciated the updates and communication received!
Laura, took very good care of my Corgi's. She has a large backyard with a pool that was well fenced and secured. I highly recommend her to those needing a responsible and caring individual to watch thier dogs while they are away from home. I appreciated her sending me daily updates and pictures on my dogs.
Laura did an incredible job watching my dog. Clyde can be a handful sometimes he's a very large dog. She took care of him very well and had a great space for any dog. I will use her again and again.
Laura was great! It was our first time to leave Nellie with anyone other than family. Nellie was a little scared at first, but laura made her, and us, very comfortable. She quickly felt safe, happy and at home. Will book with her again!
I have mixed feelings about my experience. We needed a last minute dog sitter and Laura was available and we were incredibly thankful. Our drop-off was pleasant, however, she mentioned that she would like us to pick the dogs up after 8...odd. We went about our day and wondered why after 8, she sent us updates and pictures, which we greatly appreciated. Around 6-7 Laura contacted us saying she was leaving, her mother would be home and to contact her when picking up the dogs. I was clearly under the impression that she would stay with the dogs the entire time we were away. I contacted her at 8 when we were outside, no response. When we approached her house, her mother opened the door and both our dogs ran out, luckily we were able to catch them before they ran into the street, but that was a dangerous and worrying situation. I contacted Laura, after picking up our dogs, to inquire about whether or not my dog was fed (we provided food) and I never received a response back. Overall, I am thankful that she was able to watch my dogs while we were away, however, the fact that she left them unattended, and under another's care, proper precautions weren't taken when we came to pick them up (they ran out into the street) and I never received a response back about their dinner, is troubling.
Laura had my dog, and my brother in law's dog, for the Memorial Day weekend. We brought one bed for the dogs to share (which they do when they're together). From the pictures we received daily, it looks like they had fun! One dog is very outgoing, while the other is more reserved and keeps to himself. Laura handled the different personalities perfectly.
Copper had so much fun! She has a big yard for him to run around in and friends to play with. I would absolutely go through her again and I suggest you do as well!
Laura was great with a last minute reservation . We had such a great experience with her , Candy had tons of fun running around her yard . Laura was great with updating pictures and video .
Flexible and very nice!
