About Lauren

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Tired of paying ridiculous fees for overnight boarding or doggie daycare? Look no further!

Hi! My name is Lauren and I cannot wait to meet your best friend! For all of my life I have loved animals of every shape and size. I was one of those kids that would bring home stray or injured animals I found outside. As an adult I can honestly say that part of me has never changed. I've been a pet owner since I was 8 years old. In fact, I can't remember a time when I didn't have some sort of furry friend sharing my home. I've had every sort of pet ranging from dogs and cats to bunnies and hamsters and even sugar gliders. A house just doesn't feel like a home unless there is fur on the couches.

I am a certified foster parent through Humane Society of Missouri. Ive been volunteering with them for two years now. I am also active with a handful of other organizations whom I foster for. I've fostered fur babies of all shapes and sizes from the tiniest puppy to those nearing the end of their life. I am trained on administering medications including pills, ointments, shots, and IV fluids. I am also trained on how to handle conditions such as impaired vision/hearing, epilepsy, allergies, and separation anxiety. In addition to these, I am also able to do basic grooming such as bathing, brushing, and nail clipping.

Boarded pets will be treated to open and free exploration of the home. No place is off limits including furniture if your pet is used to a more relaxed atmosphere. We always have lots of yummy treats and toys available. Kennels may be used if the owner provides them. I am able to accommodate special diets as long as food is provided. They also have access to a spacious fenced in yard with an excellent view of a playground where they can sit and watch all day. They will also be treated to two neighborhood walks, one in the morning and one in the evening. Playtime is whenever they feel the urge to have some fun. Snuggles come free.

I have two pets currently in my home. Bella is a beagle who is the princess of the house. She is also very sweet and snuggly. She was a rescue from a puppy mill and suffers from epilepsy. Fortunately, her episodes are under control with daily medication. Luna is a black lab mix who is quite possibly one of the most lovable dogs you will ever meet. Also a rescue, she comes with a few quirks. She is stranger shy but warms up quickly if given the chance. Both girls are fixed and up to date on all vaccines. They are very low-key pups that get along with everyone they meet. They will be welcoming hostesses and they are quite used to sharing their turf with other visitors. In truth, I think they enjoy having the extra company more than I do at times which is quite the impressive feat!

I can assure you that I will love your best friend as much as you do. Your pet will be in safe and experienced hands with me. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a meet and greet with myself and my girls. We look forward to meeting you soon!

We were extremely impressed with the care our spoiled fur babies received with Lauren! The daily updates were full of interactive details and great pics showing how well they were getting along with her dogs - real BFF's! We could tell by our dog's reactions that Lauren was a true caregiver. The transition was so smooth, like they never left home. The atmosphere was peaceful, clean and in a great neighborhood. We highly recommend her services and plan to use again for future needs.

This was our first time using DogVacay and the first time to use Lauren. Our experience was exceptional, Lauren communicated with us everyday and took exceptional care of our two elderly Labs and our home was as clean as the day we left.
This was a last minute decision as our regular person who watched the dogs in the past became ill and our son was getting married that weekend. Based on our experience Lauren adn DogVacay will now be our regular dog sitter for all future needs.

Lauren did a great job with our three big dogs. She took them all on walks and gave them all baths and trimmed their nails. They came home clean and warn out! She did an awesome job! Thanks Lauren!!
We used Lauren to watch our dog, Kirby for 1 night while we were out of town visiting family. Everything went very smooth and she communicated with us often. She was very accommodating when we made last minute changes to our trip. We will definitely use her again!

I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Lauren! I sincerely cannot imagine a better experience in any way! Our 3 dogs loved her immediately (including one shy/anxious one). They even slept with her exactly how they sleep with us! We've had two "friends of the family" dogsit for us in the past, and the dogs have never slept with them! We received a daily email update (with pics), and could tell Lauren loved our "babies." Every detail was taken care of. We enjoyed our trip without worrying what was happening at home! I don't THINK she cleaned, but the house seemed cleaner when we returned. She even left us a sweet "Thank you" note, and some scented lotion samples in our master bath! Too good to be true? Not with Lauren! We'll use her again and again!
