About Lori

We have a single family two story home with a fenced yard with two friendly dogs and no children. Our dogs are allowed to sit on furniture and yours would be as well. Boarding with us includes daily walks, playtime and plenty of love and attention. We are extremely conscious of dogs with allergies and have experience in food and enivronmental allergies and are comfortable with administering medicine, including injections if needed. We require a meet and greet prior to accepting any boarding requests and dogs must be up to date with all vaccinations. We will accept last minute bookings if you are a regular client.

Lori & Tom were great with Samson. I appreciated the fact that they didn't take a lot of dog guests at one time so I felt like my dog had more attention and it wouldn't be too chaotic for him. I loved the daily updates and texted pictures. They reassured me that he was adjusting well and enjoying himself with them. :)

Ricky has been with Lori before. I am amazed that when we drive up to their home Ricky has his ears up and is pawing to get out of the car! He is a happy camper when he gets home after playing with his friends and going for walks. We'll be back!
Abby was comfortable right away since she had already stayed with Lori and Tom once before. She likes to play with her new friends.
The occasional text and photo was a nice way for us to know that Abby was doing well and was adjusting to her new environment. That allowed us to relax a little more on our trip. Lori and Tom did a great job caring for our spoiled pooch and we'll certainly be back again now that Abby is familiar with her new friends.

Ricky got awsome care. He had playmates and a nice yard to run around in. Highly recommended!
What awesome sitters these two are! As I have said before, they took wonderful care of Ziti! They sent us pics of Ziti everyday and I could tell she was having fun and was very comfortable. Thanks again for being so good to our Ziti! :)
Lori and Tom were great!!

My two beagles made themselves right at home and that included some sassy behavior, but they took it in stride and welcomed them back at anytime. Thanks guys!!

I got constant updates on how my kiddos were doing and put my mind and ease while we were gone. :)

When I picked them up you could just tell they were very well taken care of and it looked to me like they didn't want to leave...they went on walks everyday and I think got use to that when we were trying to get them in the car!!

I definitely will use them again whenever we decide to go out of town!

Thanks again to you both! We really appreciated it!

Lori and her husband were considerate, compassionate and careful with Ricky. It was relaxing to be on vacation knowing that our dog was not in a lonely kennel. He had 'good parents' , other dog buddies to hang with and got tons of exercise. Highly recommended!

Ziti's first stay with this caring couple went wonderfully! They took such great care of her! We very much appreciated all the pictures and messages on how she was doing :) Thank you both for a great stay!
Oakley appears to have had a great stay with Lori, Tom, Tego, and Marley. She was pretty tired for her first two days home from having so much fun! We received text message updates each day and several pictures of her throughout her stay. Knowing she was in good hands made it easier for us to relax and enjoy our own vacation. We will definitely be bringing Oakley back next time she needs a vacay!

This was the first time we have ever left our dog with anyone other than family. At first we were somewhat apprehensive. That is until we met Lori & Tom. It was clear from the first meeting, Lady would be treated as one of their own. We had regular updates and pictures which made our time away worry free. If you are looking for someone who will love and care for your dog as you would, these are the people you need to talk to. Thanks Lori & Tom for everything.

Sunshine's stay with Marley and Tego was great. Lori and Tom were wonderful with her. They walked her several times, played with her and treated her as if she was their own. Lori sent me texts everyday and kept me informed on how she was doing. I also received pictures of her. It made vacationing so much more relaxing when we knew Sunshine was well taken care of. Thanks Lori and Tom. We know Sunshine had a great time and she looks forward to coming back again in the near future.

Our experience with Lori and Tom went well! This was our first time using a dog sitter of any sort, so we weren't too sure what to expect. But after reading other reviews and meeting them during the meet-n-greet, we felt more comfortable with the idea. They kept us updated via texts and photos and we knew our dog was in good hands. They gave us a good report of his activities and behavior when we picked him up. While this was just a short 24 hour stay, we were very pleased with the experience and would definitely use them for longer getaways. It was nice to have a family trip away, and our dog also got a fun vacation as well since he got to play with their two dogs. I would highly recommend Lori and Tom!

Sam and Coco had a great time playing with Marley and Tego and came home exhausted. We were constantly updated with texts, emails and photos which we absolutely loved! We felt completely relaxed knowing they were in good hands while we were on vacation. We will entrust our babies with Tom and Lori anytime as they took very wonderful care of our Sam and Coco. 5 Stars!!!

Sam had a super time at Lori and Tom's! He was well taken care of and they sent updates and pictures via text messages. We had a super vacation knowing he was in great hands!
Lori and Tom took great care of our dogs, just like they were their own. Our 2 can be a handful but they got along wonderfully during their stay. Our dogs came home tired and happy. Sam and Coco look forward to their longer stay with Tego and Marley as we already have our 2nd reservation booked with Tom and Lori. Thanks again for taking such good care of our babies.

Lori & Tom were incredible - this experience could not have gone any better! I was able to enjoy my vacation, because I knew Zoe was staying with a couple that would take excellent care of her. I have no doubt Zoe is already looking forward to her next visit with this family.

Thank you Lori and Tom for caring for Burl while we were away this past week! You went out of your way to see that he was comfortable, well cared for, and given lots of love and attention while in your home. We appreciate all of the pictures and texts we received, (our children enjoyed them too!). It gave all of us peace of mind knowing he was in a positive environment with lots of exercise and affection while we were away. He came home a very happy puppy!Thank you!!

Our 12 year old Lab, Sam, was well taken care of in our 4 day absence. Lori & her husband were great hosts- they asked the right questions for Sam's care & personality before hand. I could tell Sam was in great hands with very good dog experience.
I don't have words to describe how much care Lori and Tom took of our pet Parker when he stayed with them for 3 nights this week. They played with him, walked him multiple times a day since our 6 year Lab has lots of energy, fed him at the times we asked, Parker was free in the house not locked up ( since we don't kennel our dog). They were very responsive and accommodating even with the timing for picking and dropping parker, they sent us pictures and text daily with updates. We are so thankful that we found them finally we can relax on vacation and time away knowing someone is taking so much care of your pet. Thanks to Lori and Tom again and we will be using them to watch Parker always!! We couldn't have asked for more!!! It almost felt like our dog was on a vacation!!
