Hi! I am a special education teacher who owns a friendly Bichon-Poo named Henry who gets along well with other dogs.
I would love to host your dog in our home during your next vacation. Your dog or puppy would receive 24 hour care & love. We have a very large fenced in yard & a comfortable, dog friendly house. I am available on weekends (Fridays after 3:30 only), all summer, & most school vacations. I can even come to your home if you prefer. I'd love to hear from you!

5stars. Lora was kind and comfortable with Scarlet.She sent us pictures of her playing in the yard. She was like part of their own family. Would send her there again! Thanks Lora!
We were nervous about leaving Floyd (a whole week) for the first time since we got him 9 months ago. We were so relieved when we found Lora on DogVacay. Floyd is a large energetic dog but Lora didn't seem phased at all by him at all. She took him in for the week and took such great care of him, just like he was her own. We looked forward to the updates and the pictures that she sent of him each day while we were away. We could tell that he was having a great time! I would highly recommend Lora if you're looking for a loving home for your dog to stay while you're away!

Webster & Madison love staying with Lora and we love her photo updates. You can be sure our golden retriever and golden doodle will be staying there in the future.
We were so happy to find such a great dog sitter only a couple miles from our home. This was our first time leaving our anxious Conner and we were very comfortable leaving him with Lora and her great family. We received several text updates and photos over our time away showing a happy and playful Conner. Lora (and family) is a fabulous and caring dog sitter!

Lora and her family took such wonderful care of my dogs. They had a great time, and came home happy and tired. It's so nice to know that they have a place to stay where they are so well-cared for. Thanks, Lora!
Lora is a dream come true! Ruby loves her time at Lora's home and we couldn't be happier with the care she receives. Lora tends to every one Ruby's needs which includes dispensing medication. We would highly recommend Lora.
Thanks to Lora we never worry about the girls when we are on vacation. They have stayed with her several times and always come back happy.
Lora was awesome. We got daily photos of our dog playing and looking happy. He was not at all spastic when we picked him up, just nice and calm. That's our test of whether he was comfortable or not. Much, much better than he is when he returns from doggie-daycare boarder places. Thank you Lora!

Another big thank you to Lora for taking care of Razor. This was his 3rd stay with her and her family and as with the first two, he was well taken care of and loved!! Can't thank you enough Lora...and a special thanks to Lora's daughter Lilly and their dog Henry, Razor's little buddy, for taking good care of him.

We never worry when we leave Coco and Lola with Lora. The girls have visited Lora 3 times and every time they come back happy. I have already scheduled her for August. Thanks again Lora
We can't say enough good things about Lora and her family. Our dog just had an eight day stay with Lora and was well loved and taken care of. Like many others, we loved the daily updates and pics. It was quite obvious that Lora and her family go above and beyond to care for their guests! Lora even made a special trip to pick up our dog's food as I mistakenly did not pack enough for her stay. She is the utmost professional and truly loves dogs. We look forward to having our dog stay with her many many times to come!

Lora was a loving and gentle host to "our Ruby". I would reccomend Lora to anyone who is looking for a sitter for their furry family member.
We are so glad to have Lora right around the corner to take care of our boy Scraps. As always, he's well taken care of, excited to see her, and we're updated throughout. Thanks Lora and family!
Lora was very accommodating.We were spending Halloween night in Provincetown and wanted to be down there at least by 6:30, and since Lora is usually not home until late afternoon, she arranged for her daughter to be home at 2:30 which gave us plenty of time to drive down. The girls (Coco and Lola) were happy and well cared for. I have peace of mind when I leave them with Lora.

My wife & I just returned this past Sunday from a 16 day cruise and Lora and her family took GREAT care of our boy Razor...(he's a black lab, not quite 2 years old yet, but he's almost 135 lbs and very active). Things could not have gone any better!! We had recently left Razor with Lora for 2 nights, which went fine as well, but this was a 19 night stay. We can't begin to thank her, her family and of course Henry (Razor's little buddy) enough for the care, attention and love they gave to him while we were gone. He came home happy, healthy and in great spirits. Would not want to leave Razor with anyone else.

Thanks again Lora!!!

Lora and her family, including their dog Henry, are great friends to our dog. They walk her and play with her in their huge yard. The pics they send are sweet. Our dog wags her tail and walks right into their house when we drop her off. Overall 5 stars!

We just picked up Razor from his first 2 night stay with Lora and things couldn't have gone any better. We were of course a bit apprehensive at first as this was the first time our boy had been away from us, but Lora sent us daily updates and pictures and Razor couldn't have been happier or taken care of any better than Lora and her family did. We will be leaving Razor with Lora again in a few weeks for another "vacay" and we know he'll be loved and well taken care of...thanks again Lora very much!!

Lora was wonderful, we received daily updates, which was great. She has a large fenced in backyard which the girls were able to run around in, Coco and Lola were happy, tired dogs when we got home. I will definitely book again with Lora.
We were nervous to leave our new puppy with a stranger to take a pre-puppy-planned family trip, but Lora and her family put my mind at ease when Chopper and I stopped by for a meet and greet. Chopper made himself right at home in her spacious, dog-friendly house and got along well with Henry (her dog). The yard is huge and completely fenced in, so Chopper got to run around to his heart's content!
I received nightly updates from Lora, pictures included, about Chopper's adventures from the day. When we picked him up, he was happy, healthy, and well-adjusted. He loved his stay with Lora, and we will be forever grateful to her and her daughter for taking such wonderful care of our special little guy!!

I was very nervous about leaving our 3.5 month old golden puppy, but Lora and her family took such great care of our Scraps! The daily text messages with the update and pictures were so wonderful and allowed us to relax and enjoy our weekend away. Thanks again!

Fantastic as always!
She was fantastic. Cody was right at home in her house.
Lora P was the best dog sitter we've ever had. She sent great photos and updates everyday. Lora P also had great support from her family and her dog Henry. We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation because we knew Sydney was in great hands.
This was the second time that Bailey stayed with Lora and her family. As with the first visit, everything went as planned. More importantly, my wife and I felt very comfortable in leaving Bailey with Lora. She clearly loves dogs and knows how to care for them. That gives us great peace of mind. On both visits Lora sent us an update with pictures which perked up our day and reaffirmed our comfort level.

We will gladly recommend Lora to friends wishing to board their dogs. She will be our first choice the next time we need to send Bailey on a DogVacay.

Is the first time that Koda stays with Lora. It's very nice to receive updates and photos whilewe are away. Koda came back very happy and never complained ... ; )
This was the longest we have left our Sophie in many years and she shows no bad behaviors from having been away from home. Great job Lora!
Just picked our Sophie up from her third visit with Lora P. and she came through yet one more time! Sophie was happy to go there (no shakes on the way in like with kennels) and Sophie was happy and healthy when we returned a few days later. She will get to spend more time with Lora soon and we know she will have yet another wonderful experience!

This was our second time with Lora and it was even better than the first time! My 14 1/2 yr. old sweetie seemed to have returned to her younger self when I picked her up after this daytime stay with Lora. She was perky, wagging, and walking around like she owned the place! We can't wait till our next visit!

This was my Sophie's first time staying with Lora P. and it went so well! Although Sophie usually has side effects from changes in her routine, this stay must have been completely relaxing and enjoyable because I could not see any differences at all once she was home again! Lora was great about everything, special eating routine, etc. Sophie will be returning for another visit in a couple of weeks!

Lora is excellent - I was very nervous as my dog Maggy is not very socialized with other dogs. Lora handled Maggy so well and we were extremely happy with the results. Definitely will use Lora again (if she will agree) for dog care. Great experience all around.

Lora was fantastic! My dog has food allergies and can only eat a particular dog food. She was very accomondating in making sure that's all she ate. Also a beautiful fenced in yard, a playmate, and a nice family, made my dog's stay a happy one. I highly recommend Lora to watch your dog.

We found the Best dog sitter with Lora. We met with Lora the day before bringing Olive (our 15 month old maltese) for a two night stay at her house. Lora was just what we were looking for, she treated Olive just the way we do (like she's one of the kids). We called while we were away and she gave us updates and told us to call anytime. She has a fenced in back yard, which I knew Olive would love, we were afraid she wouldn't want to come home. We HIGHLY recommend Lora and will use her from here on out!
