About Lara & Yara

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our home is a wonderful place for small to medium dogs. We tailor our care to accommodate our guests individual needs. Our goal is to provide a "home away from home" experience.

We gently introduce new dogs under careful supervision, monitoring body language, etc. New pack members meet on either side of a safety fence so they can relax and sniff one another remaining protected. Once the dogs become calm we bring them in to meet the others.

We suggest bringing items such as beds, blankets, personal toys, & dog food. We recommend including dog food, as many dogs have gastric difficulties when changing their diet.

We want you to be comfortable in knowing that someone trustworthy, reliable, & compassionate is looking after your pets.

Please send us a message, we would love for you to get to know us, and discuss how we can help you with your pet.

Available by appointment only during the following hours:
Monday: 7am - 4pm
Tuesday: 7am - 9am & 11am - 5pm
Wednesday: 7am - 9am & Noon - 7pm
Thursday: 7am - 9am & 11am - 5pm

Lara is AWESOME! I highly recommend her! She has been wonderful w/ my lil' puppy and a great resource about all things canine! Thank you Lara!
We had a great experience! We have a jack Russell/dachshund mix 2 year old. She is a challenge because she is over protective and not friendly with other dogs and people, but she adjusted beautifully within minutes! Lara and Yara know dogs, and really love and understand them...we are so relieved knowing that we can go on vacation and she will have a safe place to go...a place she seems to really enjoy! We honestly never thought we would have such an awesome experience...thankful.
We were so excited to find Lara & Yara. They are very professional and committed to making our dog feel right at home. She came back a very happy girl! We will definitely use them again!
The whole experience was so easy: booking, drop off and pick up. It didn't have to worry at all about my dog while she was in daycare. We will be booking more vacays with Lara in the future!
Lara & Yara are terrific and take care of fur children even better than we do. Alan & Leslie
Lara was wonderful. Very accommodating. We will definitely use her care service again.
Again the dogs were thrilled to stay with Lara. She loves them and they love her, and I love that! Thanks Lara!
Another fine experience for me and the dogs with Lara and Yara.
Another 5 stars for Lara and Yara and FurLuxe! Thanks so much for you're the best!
Lara is the best and I couldn't be more pleased with her care of my little one's!
Lara is so great with Fonzy and truly cares for all of his needs while I'm gone. Fonzy has separation anxiety so its never easy leaving him, but I never have to worry with Lara because she goes above and beyond to make him feel at home. Thank you Lara for being so patient and sweet to my Fonzy!
We left Zipper with Lara while we were visiting Auburn and we couldn't have been more pleased. Lara made us feel instantly comfortable and it was obvious when we picked our 'nervous, twitchy' chihuahua up that she was perfectly taken care of and happy. Thank you Miss Lara!
Excellent service. Lara & Yara took loving care of our little Buddy. I would recommend them highly.
Lara and Yara are the most wonderful women you will ever meet. I do believe they truly love my Nike and they treat her as if she were their own. I could not be happier with Nike staying with them and I also think Nike could not be happier with them.

I highly recomment these sitters
Emma and Frenchie dogstay was great. They were well taken care of. They were so happy to stay with Lara. We will use Lara again. Barb
Lara was great! She was extremely accommodating and was able to take my reservation on very short notice. She was very personable and thoughtful, she even came out to meet us when we got there. I would definitely recommend her and will not hesitate to use her again in the future.
Lara and Yara are fantastic doggie caregivers. My little Shih Tzu, Oreo, is 15 years old and quite blind. She needs ointment in her eyes everyday, and Lara made sure it got done. Oreo was able to interact with the other dogs during the day which she loved because she only has her two-legged Mom at home to keep her company....and that can get pretty boring. Because I begin stressing weeks in advance of a trip, I will continue to use Lara and Yara whenever the need arises because I know she will be loved and cared for as much as I do. I will definitely recommend them to all my dog-owning friends.
Thank you, ladies, for making my trip stress free!
Sydney Whaley
We love Lara! Rocky and Toby have spent many days/nights with her. She genuinely cares of our dogs as if they were her own. They're happy when I drop them off and when I pick them up. I have peace of mind knowing they're well taken care of away from home.
Lara was very sweet and caring. She took good care of Abbey. We did not get a chance to go inside, so I don't feel comfortable giving 5 stars, but Abbey seemed very happy when we picked her up. Lara and Yara were very responsive to our requests and times. Thank you.
A family emergency made it necessary for me to find a pet sitter in a distant city. I didn't know exactly what my needs would be. Also my dog, Asia, is shy and had never been away from me for any length of time in her life, so I didn't know how she would respond to boarding. In short, I was stressed!

Lara was amazing! She was very professional and caring - for both my dog and me. She was confident in her ability to create a warm, safe environment where Asia would be comfortable, which helped my stress level tremendously. She also was flexible with the unknowns of my reservation.

During the stay, Lara sent photos of Asia and texted questions and comments that let me know she was concerned about Asia's well-being.

When I picked Asia up at the end of her stay, she was happy and well cared for. I could not have found a better boarding home for her. My family emergency situation is not over, so it is a real relief to know that Asia has a loving "home away from home" when I need to take care of other responsibilities.

Thank you Lara and DogVacay!
Very happy with Lara's care. She picked up on our dog's personality very quickly. Daily texts and photos were great.
Lara was very kind and Charlie seemed content when we got him. They worked with us to coordinate convenient drop off and pick up. Will definitely have Charlie stay there again.
Lara and Tara were wonderful with my dogs. My dogs were well cared for and they had fun playing with the other dogs. I would definitely recommend them. Thank you
Lara is a genuine dog lover! As soon as I met her, I knew Daisy was in good hands. She took her running in the mornings and sent me pictures of her stay. I could tell by the wagging of her tail that she felt at home with Lara. Thanks again for the care you gave Daisy!
Such a lovely first time experience with DogVacay! I LOVED receiving pictures of June throughout the day and saw that she was very active.
Lara and Yara were great. They made our dogs feel at home. Lara is incredibly nice and truly cares about our dogs and they're needs. Rob
There was a recurring thread to many of the reviews that we saw for Yara and Lara by people who had never left their dogs with strangers before. The steady stream of positive reviews and outcomes convinced us that they were the ones for us to try. Even with all of the positive encouragement, we were both a little freaked out about the prospect (we acknowledge we may have issues).

Regardless of where we were going into the experience, we will absolutely leave our pups with Lara and Yara again. They were patient, understanding, highly communicative and sent us daily updates and pictures so we gained confidence that they were being well taken care of.

When we picked them up, our dogs were happy to see us, but I think they'll be happy to go back and hang out with Lara, Yara and all of their new doggie friends.
Lara is fantastic with dogs. We brought our dog over to her house to get her familiar with her once. We left our dog with her for one day and she was very happy. I will only use Lara in the future and she will care for our dog when we go on a two week vacation later this year. Auzzies are not the easiest dogs to care for but she got a good review from Lara. So 5 stars for sure.
I was very pleased with the care given our standard poodle, Louie. I also appreciated that Lara was flexible with my return time when I ran into delays in getting back from the bay area.
Lara was incredible! I was very nervous dropping off June for her our first DogVacay experience, but Lara made us feel so comfortable and receiving pictures every day made me smile!

Thank you so much, I wish we actually lived closer to the area so I could use her again! Would absolutely recommend.
Chewie had a great time at his stay at Lara and Yara's, I was thinking he may never want to come home. It was a really good experience it was my first time leaving Chewie, so I was a little nervous but I got lots of pictures and videos which set me at ease. Chewie will be definitely staying there again in the near future. Thank you :)
Wow! what a great experience. I Contacted Lara and Yara last minute and they responded right away. My mini schnauzer "LadyBug" was very happy with her stay. I knew right away that she was in safe and caring hands when I dropped her off. Thank you Lara and Yara for taking such great care of our dog!
Mark and Vicky
Gigi was so happy to be able to stay with Lara and Yara while I attended a luncheon. It means a lot to me to be able to have a lovely place to leave her as she has separation anxiety and I can't leave her alone. She had a lovely visit and played with the other dogs. It was a win win! 5 Stars for Lara and Yara!
This was the first time I had left my dog since I got her in September. I got pictures and updates. Because I was so confident that she was beingoing well taken care of, I stayed an extra night. When I picked up Piper, she was relaxed and happy.
I completely trust Lara & Yara! I have peace of mind whenever I leave my Corgi in their capable hands.
Our usual sitter was unable to fit Major Lenny in for our wedding/honeymoon weekend. I frantically searched for a couple hours, and came across Lara & Yara, and all the great reviews. The last minute booking was a soaring success. She sent us pictures, and treated Lenny like her own! She even sent Lenny home with a nice new toy! I will definitely be using Lara & Yara from now on!
Benny has stayed with Lara for both overnights and daycare. He loves going there! He enjoys his walks with Lara and has fun with the other dogs under her care. Lara is very professional, loving and accomodating. We highly recommend her!
As a first time user of DogVacay, I was super hesitant while searching for someone to leave my dog with. But, I couldn't have found a better home for my dog to stay!! I went solely on reviews and return customer amounts and I am so glad I did. Lara was so amazing - she was very quick to my questions before booking and was so welcoming!! She sent me pictures of Bear and I felt so comfortable while I was away. I've found my sitter and will be using Lara & Yara for future trips 100%!!!!
My little Emmy had a wonderful time with Lara and Yara. I could tell that she bonded as she cried when Lara walked into the house as we left. She even smelled sweet from a recent bath. They are wonderful caregivers who truly love dogs. We will be calling for another Vacay in 6 weeks.
Our 9 year old corgi, Finn, recently stayed with Lara and Yara during our vacation. Finn is sometimes challenged with being around other dogs, but Lara handled his introduction to new dogs beautifully. He returned home happy and healthy. Lara kept me posted throughout the week with photos/video of Finn, which set my mind at ease. I'd highly recommend Lara and Yara as DogVacay hosts. I will definitely book again for our next vacation.
Lara is the best. I am a repeat client. My dogs come home happy and I have peace of mind knowing my dogs are well taken care of while in her care.
Lara was great! She was super flexible and put me at ease during the stay by sending me videos and photos! We will definitely recommend her to people we know in the area. This was a perfect location to drop off our dog on our way up to Tahoe. Thanks again Lara and we are looking forward to sending Abby to you in the future!
We just moved up to this area from Orange County. We were lucky to find Lara. Best dog care EVER!!! We plan to use Lara again in Jan. 2016. For our 7 day ski trip. Rick and Barb.
Lara is fabulous! She made us feel at ease when leaving our two new rescued rat terriers. They are timid about strangers, but ended up snuggling with Lara the same day.
Lara was so great with my puppies. She is really a dog person. I was very happy with her and would use her again.
Lara and Yara are the best there is. Our dogs are treated like we treat them and I think they look forward to their visits.
Lara is great! She treats our dog like she is one of her own. I highly recommend.
Lara and Yara are absolutely the best! The treatment our pups receive is as good as they receive at home. We wouldn't think of taking them anywhere else!
Very satisfied and will certainly use them again.
What a gem, Lara is! Sydney was part of the family immediately! We have never left our fur baby anywhere and especially over night. We were, of course, a little worried, but Lara made us feel extremely comfortable with how she introduces new fur babies to the ones that are already there, as well as, drop off time, feeding time, bedtime, walks and play time.

Thank you, Lara & Yara!
Stephanie & Doug
She is the best. When we got to her house my dogs was happy to be there. Walk right in. Very happy that we find her. We will be back when I need a dog sitter. Thanks so so much
Our dog had a really good time with Lara and Yara. He stayed there for the day. Communication with Lara was very friendly. We got a picture of him and everything was on time. Can't recommend her enough.
We have had the best experience. From the beginning of our first contact with Lara, she was prompt and informative regarding Stella's stay. This was our first dog vacay and it was fantastic. Lara texted photos and updates during the 5 days she watched her. It was great and reassuring that Lara has the true sense for the care and well being for the dogs . Stella will plan on another dog vacay with their new dog sitter! Thank you Lara!
Snickers had a great visit with Lara and Yara. She is so happy and relaxed at their house.
Rocky and Toby were so happy to see Lara when I dropped them off. Tails were a waggin! Got a couple of photos texted to us while we were away and showed how comfortable they are with Lara and Yara. They also seem to play more with each other at home, since going to Lara's. Happy pups mean happy mommy :)
We were very satisfied and more than pleased with Lara. Our dog came home healthy and happy and he seemed to have had a great time playing with the other dogs! Lara did everything we asked of her and we will certainly call her again when we go away.
Rocky seemed at ease here and happy when we picked him up. Lara was very accomodating on drop off and pick up times. We will definitly use Lara & Yara again.
Rocky and Toby were very excited when they saw Lara, which means they were comfortable with her. They were in good spirits when I picked them up that evening.
We were very happy with Lara & Yara. Our sweet Bella was well loved:)
Lara and Yara are awesome! They have taken care of my fur baby 2 times now, both times for a week or more (once over Christmas) and we couldn't be more happy! They made us feel as comfortable as possible leaving him each time. I LOVE that they send daily pictures of all the fun my aussie has when he's in their care. Never once have we felt like we were being bothersome to call/text to check in on our fur baby, no matter what time of day! I'm so happy we found a wonderful home for him to stay when we decide to go out of state to visit family. It really does take some of the stress away of traveling. THANK YOU SO MUCH LARA AND YARA! You are the best!
These people treat our pups like we do. We feel extremely comfortable leaving them with Lara and Yara.
Lara & Yara are great with our border collie Lola. They are knowledgeable and we feel so good knowing she is being taken care of by such caring people.
Yara and Lara were the perfect hosts for our dog during a recent wedding. They were welcoming, fun and took amazing care of him. Highly recommended!
My dog's were clean, happy and worn out when I picked them up. Thanks for taking such good care of them. I had a worry-free vacation from my four-legged family.
Lara and Yara treat our pups just like we do. Could not ask for better, more caring treatment
Excellent, as always!
It was a pleasure meeting Lara and introducing Rocky and Toby to the other "kids" during our meet and greet last week. They had a great first day at day care yesterday. Looking to make the next reservation very soon.
I feel that my dog is in very good hands when I leave him with Lara. I believe he has fun, and is very comfortable, and well cared for. I feel that she has gone above and beyond on meeting my dogs needs, and also accommodating my irregular schedule.
Another great visit for Cosmo!! Thank you so much for always taking such good care of my furry child.
Snickers loves staying with you. Thanks!
Lara and Yara were amazing puppy sitters for our fur baby, Sierra. They responded to my request very quickly and were easy to contact to set up the plans. Lara was so flexible with time; she woke up at 7am for us to drop off Sierra. Then while we were gone, she sent us pictures and texts letting us know everything that they did throughout the day. Sierra seemed like she was very happy and comfortable at their house. They even walked her outside and took her to the canal to go swimming, one of Sierra's favorite activities! When we brought Sierra home, we noticed she smelled fresh and was clean, so we think they gave her a bath before coming home -- AMAZING! Thank you both so much. We would definitely recommend our family and friends to let Lara and Yara watch their fur babies as well.
We have never boarded our dog before and didn't want to put her in a kennel. We couldn't he happier with our choice to leave Goldie with Lara & Yara. Goldie was well cared for and happy. Lara sent pictures and a text message so we knew Goldie was in good hands. We will definitely use Lara & Yara again if we need to board Goldie again. Thanks Lara - you were great and Goldie enjoyed her visit. Would recommend you and Dog Vacay to family and/or friends.
Lara and Yara do a wonderful job. Bob was happy to arrive at their house to play with all his playmates. Thanks, again
Lara and Yara are wonderful. I love them and most importantly, my dog loves them. I know she is happy and active when at Lara's and I never worry that she is not doing well because I know they treat my Nike like their own. I could NOT be happier with their pet sitting.
Excellent as always. Fabulous service.
Thanks to the good care that Bob received from Lara, Larry and I were able to enjoy our vacation. He truly enjoyed the interaction with the other dogs. We will definitely leave him with Lara again. Thanks!
Thanks again Lara and Yara! Sushi couldn't wait to be rid of us once again while we traveled to Alaska for Thanksgiving. You guys are the best!
Excellent as always!
Excellent,as always!!!!!
These people treat our pups as they are treated at home. They always have a smile when we pick them up, the pups that is. Lara and Yara always have a smile as well. We feel extremely comfortable in leaving our ladies with these ladies.
Great home for your pet to "vacay" at or for Mom to have a time out! Lara is an excellent caretaker. Theo will be more than happy to return!
Sushi just loves staying with Lara and Yara. When I drop her off she squeals and yips in delight and can't wait to be rid of me so she can go have some fun! Thanks again for your great care!
Bodie's stay was excellent. Lara and Yara have a wonderful home away from home for our dog.
I took Cindy on a meet and greet with Lara before booking an overnight stay for her.
I was pleased to see that Cindy and her cohorts would have free range of the living room overnight.
Cindy was more than excited when we arrived for her first venture away from home.
She got along with the other dogs, ate well, slept in her own bed from home and had just returned from a walk when I picked he up the next morning.
If we need dog care again we will certainly choose Lara's place.
Great as usual. Penny loved it. Thanks guys!
Great as always...........Eddie loves staying there.
A must if you want someone you can trust will love your pet. Penny is always happy to go there and Lara & Yara are always available. Never an issue. The email pictures are a nice touch!
Excellent as usual!
Thank you, Lara! Bob was well taken care of by you and had lots of fun with his furry friends. I know this because he had a great nap when he came home. Thanks for helping us acclimate our "little guy" with other dogs.
Thank you again Lara and Yara for taking care of Sushi while I goofed off with my niece in Oregon. It's wonderful to be able to go away and know that Sushi is being well cared for in your home. She loves you guys!!! I love you guys!!
Thanks so much!
It was a great feeling to be able to leave for an extended trip knowing that Charley was being cared for in a warm, loving and safe environment. Lara & Yara sent photo updates and messages to keep us up to date, and Charley seemed to have as much fun on his vacay as we did on ours!
We are so grateful to have found such a wonderful home environment for Charley.
So nervous leaving Lily for the first time. Lara & Yara sent pictures, answered text questions very quickly and it was reassuring to know Lily was safe and well cared for in my absence. If Lily has to be left again, I would not hesitate calling Lara and Yara to watch her. Thank You
Is there a 10 stars please??...

I am so happy I found Lara and Yara , they took in my 10 week old pup Johnny, knowing that he was in potty training, that everything is all about the early developmental training and they are so understanding, respectful of what I'm trying to accomplish with little Johnny its unbelievable...the calm, peaceful aura..with like minded philosophies, and understanding that I am so detailed oriented...I am a Nurse and I'm picky on lot of things...Lara put me at ease right away..Johnny is in the best environment I could possibly have hoped for for his building blocks as a pup...Lara has carved a nitch for the specialty in puppy daycare...I can go to work and focus on my work without worrying...that is huge in my book!!
Bodie seems to have had a wonderful stay with Lara & Yara! I can't wait to use them again the next time we travel!
Cosmo loved Lara and Yara. She came home happy and relaxed. They sent us pictures of her while I was away which always made us smile. I will bring Cosmo back again because I know she was loved and taken good care of. Thank you Lara and Yara for taking care of my 3rd child. :) We appreciate all you did to make her stay with you such a good one. :)

Lara walked my dog every day for a week. She texted me daily updates with pictures. I know Charlie is in good hands with Lara. I can't say enough about how wonderful Lara is. I would highly recommend her for your pet care needs.
Charley had a great first day of daycare with Lara & Yara.......and we loved getting photos!
Lara & Yara are simply amazing and have been such a blessing to our family during a trying time. They took such great care of our pup and have been so flexible and gracious, extending the reservation twice and working with us to make things as easy as possible for us. I'm not sure Maddie is going to want to come home! It gives us such peace of mind knowing that we have such good caregivers for our four legged family member!
Lara & Yara are awesome! They accepted my pup on short notice for this reservation and showed such patience with her when she had some potty accidents because it was a rainy day and months since she had been at doggy daycare. I never worry about Maddie when she is with them.
Lara & Yara were willing to take on our very active puppy when a lot of other places would not. At the meet & greet, we immediately felt comfortable leaving our pup with them as they are absolute dog lovers, have so much patience and have their home well equipped to do what they do. They kept us updated on Maddie regularly which was great too. Maddie had a great first "vacay".
We are very pleased with our Penny's stay with Lara and Yara. We got several photo's and updates and will certainly use them again.
Great experience! We travel with our dog a lot but this trip she had to stay home! I found Lara and Yara and was comfortable from the very beginning! Mia loved all the fur friends she stayed with ! Lara and Yara sent me photo updates everyday! So happy to have found such a great place and I highly recommend them! Thanks so much for the great care of our Chi!!
Lara and yara treat our pups like they were their own. They are just the best!
Once again, it was easy and friendly and professional, and Sushi was well taken care of in their home. Thanks so much Lara and Yara!
Thanks again Lara and Yara. Sushi thinks you're pawsome and so do I!
Goose had an amazing time! Lara and Yara are awesome! They sent me photos and were always happy to respond to my texts about how Goose was doing. Highly recommend!
Both girls are so gentle & caring that the dogs just sense it when they arrive! Their babies cannot wait to welcome "new" friends ! And they are Very attentive to Any "special needs" ! Which gives you peace of mind when you are traveling ! Photos they send are a Nice Bonus as well !
Lara & Yara are just fantastic! I really feel like they truly care about my puppy and she always seems so happy and well cared for while she is with them. They are so easy to work with and always answer my requests quickly. I also love that they send me pictures - it always makes me feel better about having to be away.
Since our long-time in-home dog sitter went away to college, we've really limited our travel because our dog is usually so miserable being away from home. We found Lara & Yara through DogVacay fairly last minute when we had to leave town unexpectedly. Lara responded to my request for a meet & greet within 30 minutes, and both she and Yara were there to meet us. Jessie stayed with them for five days. He was very excited to see us when we came to pick him up, but he displayed none of the stress behaviors that he has in the past with other dog sitters. He clearly had a great time and was very well cared for during his stay. We also loved the photo updates. We'll never feel guilty leaving Jessie with Lara & Yara -- we know he'll be in great hands.
We really hit the jackpot with Lara and Yara. We could not be happier. My dog was so loved and cared for that she fit right in to their household and probably never missed me at all. The ladies are wonderful, so happy and fun for the pets and us. I never want another pet sitter other than Lara and Yara.
Lara and Yara treat our pups as though they were their very own. We feel very comfortable in leaving them in the care of these two. We enjoy the pictures which they send along and it gives us some comfort to see how happy they seem.
FurLuxe is an awesome place! We have taken our 2 small dogs there numerous times and we are consistently impressed with Lara & Yara's work. They go beyond what we would even expect a "day care" provider would do. They walk our dogs and attend to their every need, including loving them up! They even send photos to update us. I can be a bit of a worrier regarding our "babies", but I have to say we have NO worries whatseover when our dogs are at FurLuxe.
We highly recommend FurLuxe!! ----Mary & Art
Super easy process. Lara and Yara fully have our trust when we leave Bella with them. They take great care of Bella and kept us updated on Bella as we are worried parents.
My regular kennel was booked up for the holiday weekend and I was scrambling to find someone to look after my little dog Sushi. Through a Google search I found DogVacay and Furluxe, and arranged a meet and greet. Lara and Yara are GREAT. Their home and atmosphere are dog comfortable with walks and plenty of interaction and even Dog TV. I didn't worry one bit about Sushi while we were gone. Lara and Yara will be Sushi's regular sitters from now on Thanks!!
Lara V was wonderful and Spike had a terrific time. Because of my schedule she even brought him back to the hotel for me. I would highly recommend Lara to anyone with a four legged "baby"
Lara tries to treat our pups just like we treat them at home. They climb on the furniture and have the run of the house and property. We get pictures of the pups doing whatever, mostly sleeping on Lara's lap. Excellent care.
Our pups were greeted and treated as though they lived there. We were extremely comfortable in leaving "the girls" with Lara and Yara. When we picked them up at the end of the stay they were happy to see us but clearly had been treated as well as they would have been at home. The whole experience couldn't have been better.
My 6mos old Pip goes to Lara and Yara for daycare and while I look forward to my weekend, Pip looks forward to her time at daycare. She whimpers and wiggles with excitement to get in their arms and comes home exhausted but with pure joy in her eyes. Pip is my baby and I would not trust her with just anyone. They care for her as if she were their own and go above and beyond caring for all her needs. Pip has so much positive stimulation; walks, playtime, Dog TV, naps, and constant supervision and loving interaction. I would highly recommend them to anyone who truly cares about their dog's experience. I have seen how often the dogs are positively impacted. Thank you Lara and Yara for bringing Pip such joy and me peace of mind and comfort in knowing she is safe and loved!
My wife and I have been putting off finding a place to board our dog worried what was available. No longer. We found Lara and did a meet and greet first. Our dog seems to be high maintenance. Lara was very attentive and clearly takes her responsibilities very seriously. We've used her one to watch Bella one night and when we dropped her off, we knew she was in good caring hands. It appeared when we picked Bella up the next day, she had a good time. Lara knows her business and we plan on using her services in the future. Don't look any further if your looking for a pet sitter.
I was so happy to find Lara! She and Yara took such good care of our little 4 month old puppy, Cooper, that I didn't think he would want to come home! We left him for 8 nights and it was lovely to know he was in such good hands that we were able to enjoy our vacation 100%. We received almost daily photos and updates about his progress which were so reassuring to us. I would not hesitate to recommend Lara for her care and obvious love of animals. Thank you so much.
There needs to be more than 5 stars for Lara! She took fabulous care of my 10 yr. old toy poodle, Abby. This was the longest I've ever left Abby & I was a bit apprehensive how she'd do being away from me for so long. Lara sent me several pics showing me diff. aspects of Abby's life during that time and, knowing Abby's body language, it was easy to see she was not only maintaining well but was actually looking happy & clearly having fun. She really bonded with Templeton & Gringo & I actually think she was kind of depressed the first couple days after I picked her back up! Lara has many comfy spaces set up for the dogs so they can sun themselves, cuddle together or just watch the world go by; also, she & Yara take the dogs on all kinds of fun walks, to the park, etc., so they get out in the world to have fun. Their dedication to & love for their own dogs & all others is evident and the dogs feel that. When I picked Abby up, they even gave me a little brochure memento of Abby's time with them which included pics & little details of her stay with them! It's a keepsake that was very meaningful. Abby & I plan on seeing Lara, Yara, Templeton & Gringo regularly to continue the wonderful bonds that were made!
I am extremely pleased with Furluxe! Their home is a lot like "home" for my dogs. Lara and her family took the time to understand my dogs and appreciate their personalities. They were very conscientious and loving with their care. Thank you Furluxe!!!
