About Lori-Ann

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My family 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.

My twelve year old granddaughter loves animals and offers plenty of attention and playtime for those who enjoy it. She would never be left in charge of your dog.

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.

I took my dog levi to Lori-Ann for an overnight test run. I was pretty nervous because he is very shy with strangers but when I came to pick him up, he was happily playing with the other dogs and comfortable with Lori-Ann and her husband. Lori-Ann he was happily playing with the other dogs and comfortable with Lori-Ann and her husband. Lori-Ann was very flexible about drop offs and pick ups and responsive to texts. I will definitely be bringing Levi back again!

Lori-Ann was great! Our dog Maddie is usually a little timid when away but Lori-Ann made her feel comfortable, so much so that Maddie didn't even want to leave when we picked her up. Lori-Ann also was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up when want to leave when we picked her up. Lori-Ann also was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up when my schedule shifted multiple times during the reservation.

Excellent experience! Rocki was very well taken care of and even slept with Lori-Ann in her bed. Not only that, but Lori-Ann gave him a bath before we picked him up. Rocki had never been away from home overnight before and was so shy that he we picked him up. Rocki had never been away from home overnight before and was so shy that he apparently had a bathroom accident. She and her granddaughter were lovely and we will definitely use them again.
