About Cliff & Lori

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are celebrating our 3rd year on Dogvacay!

We do live in an apartment with size restrictions. We cannot care for any pet over 25 pounds. This is sad for us. We will be moving in December 2016 to remove this limitation.

If this is your first time booking, please use our custom link for $10 your first booking:

I've been an animal lover/owner all my life. I am not a dog trainer, but I have trained all my animals the basics, sit, lay down, roll over, "no" come, etc. I have a 5 year old dauchaund male dog named Slinky, who is fixed. He is excellent around other dogs and loves to have company. He is a free feeder, but I can put him on a feeding schedule when your pet stays. I have 30+ years of experience at this. You're dog will be welcomed into a loving home and cared for by two loving caregivers. I do know Pet CPR. Please feel free to come by and meet us prior to any definate plans.

PLEASE NOTE: I only accept 1 reservation at a time with a maximum of 4 dogs. This is because I know how my dog will react around other dogs, but I don't know how other dogs will react around yours. This is the safest way to ensure your pet is as safe as can be. Because of this, I do get booked quickly. I am extremely fast on my response times to ensure you get the dates you want. Because of this, refunds will be made on a case by case basis. If I've had to turn down a reservation because I have your pet booked and then you cancel... A refund will not be given. Only in rare circumstances will I consider it. I hope you understand and I look forward to seeing you and your pets soon!

ALL PETS MUST BE HOUSE TRAINED. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Did you know... You can book a stay for your feline friend also?

Cliff was very prompt with our request for a meet and greet. He took good care of Gambit and he did a great job. Gambit seemed to like him a lot and he came back super tired so he had lots of fun playing and having a good time. He was also great because he picked him up and dropped him off so it was easy for us!

Tucker always has so much fun staying with Cliff and Lori! And he loves getting to play with Slinky!!
Cliff and Lori where fabulous with our Yorkie Molly! They sent pictures and text often which made us feel more secure. I would definitely use them again upon our next travel. Cliff, was really sweet too...seemed to grow attached to Molly.
My dog is full of energy and Cliff and Lori did not complain about it at all. They were up to date with me at all times and answered my questions readily. I would let my dog stay with them again, great family and seem to love the dogs they care for.
Cliff and LorI were great! We have a puppy who isn't fully potty trained and has never stayed with anyone, so we were hesitant. But she did great! They even let her sleep in bed with them, which I know she really appreciated. She was happy when we dropped her off and happy when we picked her up. Overall I would highly recommend Cliff and Lori!

Cliff was wonderful! He picked Winston up and also dropped him off at our apartment after a long drive. Win had a great time with Slinky!!
We were very happy and confident in the care that Cliff and Lori provided to Biscuit. Biscuit was her normal happy self when we saw her and we couldn't be more pleased.
As always, my baby was taken care of as if I were there. Cliff & Lori are the best
My dog was able to transition nicely into their home while we were away
Memphis had a great vacay with Cliff and Lori. He came back looking healthy and happy. Cliff comes across as both calm and caring, just right for Memphis who is a gentle and affectionate. We would be happy to use the services of Cliff and Lori again.
Cliff and Lori took excellent care of Angus. They send me photo updates and even bought him a new toy. Angus was very relaxed and happy when I picked him up.
I love the option of pickup and delivery ! I always feel that my little one is safe and getting the attention she needs.
It was our first experience with a pet sitter, & a first for an extremely shy 1-yr- old Aussie. Cliff & Lori were WONDERFUL. We needed a split day- 530 am until noon, then again from 6-9pm. They were so kind & accommodating. Shadow was excited to return in the evening & we were able to enjoy our dinner. Would definitely recommend them & we will absolutely be reserving a spot with Cliff & Lori on our next trip to Galveston.

As always, she came back happy and healthy.
We were very happy with Cliff & Lori they were very accommodating with our schedule and Millie came home happy. We will defiantly use them again.
They were awesome, i would definitely go back to them.
We had our dog spend the night, came back healthy and looked happy! Thank you! Would use again!
Barnacle had a great time and Cliff was great about my last minute work schedule.
We had never used a service before, and were admittedly nervous about leaving our baby, but had no one to keep him over the holidays. Our dog is a rescue dog and has a restless, nervous disposition. Cliff and Lori were wonderful! They sent us pictures and a video. Chico was comfortable and loved while we were away. They kept him in their home, and he even slept at the foot of their bed! Wow!
Great people!

Flexible and Very Kind. Our dog liked it as far as we could tell by seeing him !
My baby was picked up and delivered exactly on time. She had a wonderful time. I totally trust Cliff and Lori to take the best care of my girl.
As always, I felt confident that my Yorkie was well cared for and I could relax on my get away.
She always loves being with Cliff & Lori
Prinny had a great time and was very well cared for.
Wow!!! My dogs are my babies so I am very particular when it comes to leaving them. However, my husband and I met with Lori and Cliff at a local dog park prior for a "meet &greet!" I know we had tons of questions and we needed to know that our dogs were going to get along. All was well, so we were off to vacation! I received photos and comment dog the dogs almost everyday!
When we returned to pick them up, the whole clan was outside playing! I know they missed me as much as I missed them! My babies all came up and had a very excited "hello" and then they went right back to playing!! I knew they had been taken care of very well at that moment!! (The HUGE yard was a big success for my pups too!)
We will definitely use this couple again!

Incroyable. Première fois que je laissais mon bébé de 7 ans et en plus dans un pays qu'il ne connaissait pas encore bien. Cliff a même appris quelques mots en français pour Ulan. Il a reçu visiblement beaucoup d'amour, quand je suis revenue le chercher il était fou de joie mais il allait aussi vers Cliff et Lori quand ils l'appelaient. Ça prouve bien qu'il a passé de bonnes vacances chez eux. J'ai reçu des photos et une vidéo de lulu en train de jouer avec leur Slinky. Super. Très bonne première expérience. Je ne changerai pas de dog sitter. S'il y a une prochaine fois ça sera avec eux. Merci énormément.

Lori and Cliff were great foster parents to our lab while we were out of town, Spencer had no compliants :) They were incredibly accomodating to our schedule and made it a worry free trip for us (and living 5 minutes from Hobby was a huge benefit). I would not hesitate to let Lori and Cliff watch him again. Thanks!

I could not be happier with Lori. My pup enjoyed the large yard and playing with Slinky. They even noticed that my pup likes to sleep in the bed and made her feel comfortable. I will absolutely use Lori again as she came back to me happy, excited and healthy.

The pick up and delivery service was so very helpful ! I was rushed getting ready for the trip and exhausted after. My girl came back happy and healthy.
My doggies love Lori and Cliff. They even found a new treat for them. I got pics of my spoiled doggies :) They took care of my little min pin who gets cold and made sure she was warm and got to know their personalities. My doggies we cared for just as well as I would and seems they never missed a beat. Thank you Lori and Cliff!!

Thank you Lori! There is no doubt my pups were well cared for and loved while staying with you! I'll definitely be calling on Lori again:)
Last minute reservation with them. Nice people. Didn't really get photos from the weekend. Updates upon request.
We left our beautiful puppy Mattie with Cliff this weekend on a last minute notice. I saw his shining reviews and chanced it with a 9PM reservation request. He responded that evening and allowed us to drop her off early the next morning. The huge wrap around yard was perfect for our big, energetic girl. The communication he provided was flawless and prompt. By the first night, I already felt so comfortable with her being there! He truly seems to love these dogs, and will properly entertain them. I can not say enough nice things. Mattie will definitely be back to visit.

My kids were very happy to be in a yard versus a crate for 7 days (and I was too). Took a lot of worry off my mind. Thank you.
They were flexible with my drop off and pick up times which made a difference since we didn't have a set itinerary. I loved that they had a huge yard for my dogs to roam (they love to roam) and they have another dog in the home to socialize with my pets. Most of all, my dogs were very content when I picked them up. This is a huge difference from sending them to a regular kennel. My dogs are not use to being confined so boarding in a dog friendly really made a difference with their temperament after being separated from us for the weekend. We'd definitely use them again.

Badeaux was only with Lori for one night, but he had a great time. He loved her big yard! Will definitely use her again.
We would not have enjoyed our vacation if we didn't find a pet sitter at the very last minute. I didn't want to leave our pets at a kennel as they've NEVER been in one before. It would have been a traumatic nightmare for them and it would have broken my heart to leave them in one at the very last minute!

But Cliff was such an awesome blessing for all of us! He accepted our reservation even if it was a very, very last minute one! He also didn't take any other reservation while he had Sparkle & Biscuit with him.

We knew our furry babies had a blast while staying with Cliff as they looked happy and unstressed when we picked them up. Cliff is an awesome host and we would definitely go back to him whenever we need help with the furry babies in the future.

Once again, Cliff and Lori were great. Our Sammy and Lexi had a blast running around their huge yard and playing with Slinky. We will definitely be going with them again next time we need to go out of town.
Took advantage of the delivery service that was offered, so I was totally unpacked by the time my Prinny was brought home. This was wonderful !
Received 2 pics of my girl within the 1st 2 days. She ate and played well. Cliff and Lori cared for her very responsibly. Prinny came home tired, but in very good condition.
I had a great experience leaving my "fur child" with Cliff. She clearly was well cared for and even looked like she was having fun with his dogs in all of the photos he sent during the week. Thanks Cliff!!
I like that he only had 1 dog and it was small. I also like that he didn't board any other dogs while my Prinny was there. He called and emailed and made me feel secure that my girl was being well cared for.
Cliff was a terrific host and we highly recommend! When we picked up our Sammy and Lexi, we could tell that they were so much happier to have stayed there instead of a kennel. And their yard is HUGE, which was an extra bonus. We'll definitely be booking with Cliff again.
