About Lori-Ann

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I love dogs and have owned and fostered a variety of rescues over the years. I became certified in pet first aid back in 2008 and I'm familiar with a variety of breeds and their traits.

We own a 3 bedroom home on a quiet, dead end street and can offer a fenced in yard, free roam of the house, cozy furniture to rest on and the companionship of our female bulldog.

We are custodial grandparents of a twelve year old girl who loves animals and offers plenty of attention and playtime for those who enjoy it. She would never be left in charge of your dog.

Presently I am a stay at home grandma and I will decide on a case by case basis whether or not I'm comfortable leaving a visiting dog (and my dog) alone while I run out for groceries or local errands. A high strung dog with separation anxiety has different needs than a mellow dog who likes to sleep a lot. Your dog won't be left unsupervised unless I'm completely comfortable doing so and then it would be brief.

We are open to caring for dogs of any breed or size providing they are housebroken and non-aggressive. We like the idea of a dog having a great vacation while their people are away. We're ok with dogs who are post-surgical or have special needs.

We have lived in West Haven for 25 years and in our present home for nearly 15 years. We offer stability, a reasonably neat environment, a mellow, low-traffic household and lots of love and attention.

More about our home: There are no doors that open directly onto a public street. Our back door opens into a fenced-in yard and our front door opens into an enclosed porch with a second front door. While no home is 100% escape proof the set-up of our house provides an extra layer of protection against a dog bolting and running off.

At one time we owned three dogs and when we went on vacation we almost always ended up either separating them with different sitters or boarding them at a kennel. We'd like to offer people the option to keep their pets together while they're away.

Let's chat and see if our household would be a good fit for your dog(s).

I have known Lori-Ann for almost two decades. She is an amazing person. She loves animals and animals love her. She has a small lovely house on a corner lot which often has a lot of plants around the yard. It is fenced in and safe for animals. As long as I have known her she has had at least one dog.

No issues, they seem to love animals, big enough back yard for dogs to play, Goliath seemed very happy happy when I picked him up and in fact booking another weekend with them now.
Lori-Ann was great! I had a last minute travel plan come up, and she responded right away. She really cares about her dog, andI felt 100% safe with my dog in here hands. She sent me pictures every day, which made my trip go by even faster.
