About Lauren

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I get it, I'm a dog parent, too. That means I care about my dog's happiness 24/7. I would be happy to extend that same love and attention to your dog when you have someplace to be!

I work from home and can keep a close eye on your pup all day long. Maya, my Boston Terrier/French Bulldog mix, is a very gracious host and loves to meet and play with new dogs, so your pooch will never be bored!

If your dog loves exercise, s/he will get plenty here at Happy Dog Daycare & Boarding. An avid hiker, I do daily walks and hikes and plan fun activities for pups on the weekends, like trips to the beach! Please be sure to specify your dog's preferred activity level.

For overnight visitors: Your dog is free to roam and sleep wherever s/he feels most comfortable. I do not crate, so if that is your preferred sleeping arrangement, please bring one with you (and toys, too!).

Small to medium dogs preferred, or large dogs who don't mind snuggling, since my place is cozy. Absolutely no people-aggressive dogs.

Bamboo LOOOOOVES staying with Lauren and Maya!
We were going out of town for the weekend and needed someone to watch our Cavachon, Smokey. After a few meet and greets we settled with Lauren due to the fact that she works from home, was really close to us and had an enclosed outdoor area where Smokey could play. Smokey is only 13 pounds and is often intimidated by larger dogs but the fact that Lauren has a small dog was the clincher. Smokey ended up having a wonderful time playing with Lauren's dog. A very pleasant experience!
Lauren took my boy Bailey on a walk/hike today and when I came home I found a very contented dog! Lauren will do a few more walks for me later this month and I have no doubt they will all go well.
Lauren is a great sitter. Milo had a wonderful time with her, she was very responsive, send us pictures every week. I most definitely recommend her, we look forward to bring Milo back, he returned a happy dog, well taken care of and found new friends in Lauren and Maya.
Homer's first stay with Lauren went really well. Communication before and during was timely and detailed. Thanks for taking such good care of Homer!!
Lauren took great care of my dog. She sent photos of Maddie when she brought her on a walk or at the dog park. I can tell Lauren really cares about the dogs she's sitting for. She was very flexible with me and I would definitely use her again.
2nd time with Lauren. Bamboo loves her! She is definitely family! He always comes back happy and well-exercised. Lauren rocks! Woof! (
Lauren was a great host for our energetic little guy, We could tell he had a good time. Highly recommended. Thanks again!
I felt totally comfortable leaving my dog with Lauren. He hates being away from me but she really connected with him and made his stay as pleasant as possible. I would not hesitate to leave him again with Lauren!
Fillmore had a blast with Lauren, can't wait to come back again!
Lauren was great - very friendly and easy going. Sent me cute pictures of my dog on their outings. My dog LOVED her dog and they had a blast together. Will definitely keep them in mind for the future!
Our lab Bamboo had quite a Memorial Day! The sign of a good host is when your pup is sad to come back home, like a kid whose vacations have been cut short ;) Lauren took fantastic care of Bamboo - he's been hiking and exploring the beach and playing with Maya, Lauren's dog. Thank you for all the fantastic photos, Lauren! We put a few on our fridge :)
I was impressed with her flexibility politeness and willingness to take last-minute changes in my schedule. Scout enjoyed his time with Laurie and May. Scout came home a very happy dog.
