About Lauren

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey, I'm Lauren!!
I love all animals and have experience with them:)
I was a veterinary assistant at an animal hospital for almost a year. I was a foster mom to all types and ages of dogs for a full year, the foster dogs would stay in my home and I would feed, walk, play with and bathe them. I would give them tons of love and attention and make sure they were ready for a fur-ever home:)
I also have my own dog and cat , ages 4 and 9.
I will send photo/video updates daily or at whatever frequency you request:)
*****99% of my clients use check ups/visits , (NOT boarding and sitting) I come to your home and check on your baby, feed them, play with them, clean the litter box, let them outside. Most clients book 1-3 visits a day depending on what they need. (If mom or dad just needs a lunch time visit while they work 1 visit, on vacation but have a medium-large dog who can hold his /or her bladder well, two visits a day, on vacation but have a tiny dog , 3-4 visits a day, cats and other pets will be fine with one visit a day but you can book more than one if you want them to have more attention etc) . This has worked out for every client and their fur baby and it's easy and reliable for everyone involved.
Also we MUST have a meet and greet before I do visits for you, your fur baby needs to meet me and we need to go over what your fur baby needs and any other things I need to know:)
**i can do daycare and boarding if necessary, message me and we will discuss your options**

*** all 30 minute check up visits are $15 UNLESS you live more than 20 minutes away. Clients who live more than 20 minutes away will be charged $25 per visit.***

Lauren is very observant and well-trained in pet care. She goes the extra mile to make sure your pet feels the love and gives the cutest photo updates along the way! Lauren's experience in an animal hospital and as a foster mom really is a unique experience, and is hard to find someone as qualified. She works with you and your pet to provide the best check-up or visit you can ask for, and is always accommodating to your needs. Thanks for treating my fur baby like your own!

I like getting photos when she visits because it gives me peace of mind knowing that she is there when expected.
Lauren was such a life saver for us!! After having a few unhappy dog sitting experiences with friends, we were nervous on what to do with our pups over a long weekend away. Generally, our mini vacays are riddled with stress about our dogs are getting on without us, but with Lauren watching them this time, our trip was stress free and actually enjoyable! The text updates she sent during each house call were so great to get, especially when they were paired with pictures of our animals with huge smiles on their faces and enjoying some good quality play time! I dare say, they might like her more than us after she cared for them for just two days! Lauren dropped by our house twice a day while we were gone and after our meet and greet before we left we were so relieved and happy to have such a quality and easygoing person hanging out with our pups! We will definitely be calling on services again and couldn't recommend her more highly. She rocks! The dogs actually wrote this review for me and can't stop talking about great she was.

Lauren was absolutely wonderful with our two girls! She came three time per day while we were gone and always checked in with pictures and updates. She lets you know what she has done and what she will do during her next visit which gave us peace of mind. We will definitely be using Lauren again and highly recommend her!

She did great walking my puppy...always sent updates with pictures while she was visiting.
Lauren did a great job! Miekka seemed so happy in all the photos she sent me. We will use her again!
Lauren was great! She kept me informed, followed Pepper's schedule for walks, food, and meds. She provided love and care so that I came home to a happy dog. I certainly recommend. I have already made another reservation.
Always a great sitter and there when we need her in a pinch! And she gets along great with our big pig.
Lauren was great! she took wonderful care of our fur babies and was always quick to respond and send pics while I was missing our boys! I would highly recommend her :)
Lauren is always a great sitter and makes sure Puck the pig stays nice and cool during the summer.
I felt very comfortable leaving my babies with Lauren. I really appreciated her keeping me posted on how things went while I was away! I definitely will request her when I go out of town again.
We love Lauren and she tailored her service to our dogs need. She is amazing so grateful for the multiple photos and hands on care our dogs received. We will recommend her to our friends and family.
Lauren was great with Frankie - she arrived during the previously agreed upon time frame and took Frankie for a nice long walk. We appreciated her help immensely!
Thanks for taking care of our fur babies Lauren! Good job keeping up with the details!
Lauren is very communicative and easy to work with. I really enjoy how she sends me a picture of Kipper everyday so I know he is doing well. I definitely will be hiring her again.
Lauren is wonderful! We have a senior dog that requires extra patience and love and Lauren has been nothing short of amazing with our sweet girl. She friendly, always on time, takes thoughtful care of your animal and sends updates via text message (complete with pictures) so our time out of town is always worry free.

Highly recommend!

Lauren is delightful and super dependable. I loved knowing she was there to keep an eye on my pooch and my house too. She has come through in the pinch for us on more than one accession and I would gladly request her services again! J and B
Lauren was amazing. We have a pit bull who is a little shy at first and needs time to warm up to anyone. She handled it like a pro. She even took time out to come and make her introductions before sitting for him. My furbabies were very happy. She is amazing and I definitely will be using her more often!

Lauren is great - we've used her dog walking services several times now and she is always very friendly, reliable, and prompt. We appreciate being able to depend on her to walk our pup when we have long work days. She gets back to me very quickly when I ask if she is available and she is extremely flexible.

We had to take our dog last minute on our vacation to Savannah. Lauren was very friendly, and she helped us tremendously by watching our dog when we needed to go places that don't allow dogs.
My poor dog had to have surgery 2 weeks before we left on vacation. A week after the surgery he had a slight infection and had to take some medication for the next two weeks. I really did not want to leave him at all - but the plane tickets were booked! Thank goodness we had Lauren as our pet sitter. She was awesome. She snuck his pills into his food every day, and she also made sure he had a clean shirt on (to keep him from scratching at his stitches). She texted me pictures every day and assured me that he was doing just fine. I know he preferred to stay in the comfort of his own home, rather than be boarded at a kennel. I would highly recommend Lauren and will definitely request her services in the future. It was a huge relief to know that Forest was in such capable hands!

Simply put, Lauren is a lifesaver! We had to go out of town unexpectedly last weekend. None of our regular hosts were available, which is understandable. I searched our area on my mobile phone at about 9:30 PM and found Lauren. That same night, at 10:30, Lauren agreed to a meet & greet. In my opinion, agreeing to meet us at 10:30 at night is above and beyond the call of duty. However, it was our only option since we had to leave the next morning. Lauren did a fantastic job with Rascal! She came to our home and took care of Rascal and sent numerous cute pictures. She stayed in touch with us during the entire time we were away. A great benefit to having Lauren take care of our pet in our home is that she also monitors the status of our home while she is here.
This young lady is the best sitter we have ever had and we will be calling on her in the future -hopefully with plenty of notice this time!

Lauren deserves the highest rating possible (plus a gold star) because she is kind, articulate, caring, very intelligent and responsible.

Thanks to DogVacay for helping us find Lauren!!!

great - she is friendly trusty worthy and wonderful with our animals
Lauren watched our two (crazy) dogs for more than two weeks. This was no easy feat as our small dog is still in the potty-training stages. We have a 96 lb Lab Mix and a 8 lb Pomeranian...walking them even on their own can be chaotic and stressful, as they're both puppies, and she handled them with ease. She would send pictures, videos, and message updates which reassured us the dogs were in good hands. She stayed here at our house and let them play to get some exercise, and I know how my dogs can be, so I know she tidied up and put away their toys when they were done. She even did a lot of extra stuff like bringing in packages that showed up, sweeping our floors (the big dog sheds enough to make another dog daily), and washing the pup's bedding! Her pricing is reasonable and very fair, and she provides exceptional care for our furry children. I strongly recommend her, and will definitely be sharing her name with our friend circle to send more business her way. I had a great experience and will definitely call on her again.

Lauren was awesome! This was the first time we have left out pup alone for a weekend trip and Lauren was quick to respond, sent pictures, visited on time and stayed in touch throughout the weekend. Would recommend for anyone!
