About Lois and George

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would enjoy taking care of your dogs while you are away on business or pleasure.

*We only host dogs thru DogVacay, so all are insured.

.

*Never use crates nor do we host dogs that use crates.

*Pool is available for any dog who enjoys a swim. We are not qualified to provide pool therapy, however.

*Dogs can stay indoors and out during the daytime.

*Home is air-conditioned.

*Dogs have access to all beds, couches and numerous dog beds.

All dogs must be:
- housebroken
- spayed/neutered
-Up to date on shots
- Family pets only. We do not take dogs that normally live outdoors.

-Walks are included in your overnight boarding if your dog walks well on a leash.
-One nite overnight includes one full day of daycare, not two full days of daycare. If 2 full days are required, an extra daycare fee of $20 will be added.


We DO NOT work from home nor do we have small children, so the doggie guests are the focus of our attention!!
We enjoy playing with them as much as they enjoy playing with us.

We take all sizes and breeds of non-agressive dogs at this time.

Lois and George always take the best care of my dogs. I would trust them implicitly to do the right thing. They keep in touch to let me know how they are doing. A greyt choice.
Perfectly perfect in every way!
Lois and George are wonderful hosts. As always, GraciBel's visit was awesome!! Pawesome!! Jeanne and GB
If anything, my dogs are spoiled rotten! Upon my return, they were happy and healthy. Can a dog mom ask for more? Santa Ynez
As always, GB enjoyed her stay with George and Lois. George was in y area so picked up GraciBel and, when I opened door for George, GB went right with him . This is kinda' miraculous because GB is an abused dog and, when I rescued her, she would not go near a man . She loves George. With his kindness and gentleness with her, He has helped her come a long way since abuse. Thank you, Lois and George.

I just must have overlooked this review. It is 4-5 months ago but, all of our visits with George and Lois have been pawesome and I am certain this visit was no different!. They are wonderful people and my GraciBel loves her visits there.

Apoligize for missing it!!

As always, GraciBel is happy to get there and happy when she is picked up. She loves, George - Lois, also - but she was abused and had a terrible fear of men. So her love for George is especially important and meaningful. . Awesome folks!!
Lois and George are the kindest, most loving people we know. We turn the corner to their house and he knows he's going on the BEST doggie vacay. Home for Hounds is Leo's home away from home and we are so grateful they have opened their home to our sweet doggie:) Thank you!

As always, GB's visit with Lois and George was awesome.. Lois and George always goes above and beyond the call in caring for my little GraciBel. Thank you, Lois and George. We do not know what we would do without you! Thank yo so very much.
First time to use Lois and George through DogVacay and we couldn't be happier. Our dog Kingsley loved being with them, the pictures proved it. He came home happy and relaxed not anxious or keyed up like he used to when being boarded at other places. We know he will love to go back. Lois and George have created a wonderfully loving and inviting environment for the dogs they watch in a beautiful neighborhood. We have found Kingsley a wonderful vacation home away from home.

As always - Lois and George are wonderful hosts and caregivers for my little dog, GraciBel. As always, when we pull up to the house, she jumps out of the car and runs to the door. This time George caught her on the way - she was content as a bug in a rug!!
Lovely people!!

Great sitters! My Dukie was so happy!
Lois is a true dog lover. From the first meeting I had with her, I knew that my dog would be in great hands. She is extremely knowledgeable about dogs, as well as the needs that come with handling different breeds. I have already booked another stay and I am so happy that I have such a wonderful person to leave my dog with when I am away! She is extremely accommodating and I am so grateful to have her so close by! Thank you Lois!

As always, GraciBel had a great time with Lois and George. They are the best! Kind, loving, caring, GraciBel loves her visits with Lois and George!
We spent 2 weeks out of the country and knew that Leo was safe, happy and loved. Lois and George are amazing beyond words. They treat Leo as part of their family. What more could any dog owner ask for:) Thank you so so much!!!
Pawsome visit, as always! Lois is her usual kind and caring self. And George, the greeter, kind and gentle as always. GB loves coming to spend time with Lois and George. Do not know what I would do without them. Such a comfortable feeling to leave
your pet with such fine folks!

Lois and George as truly the BEST!! They are both true dog lovers. They treat Leo like he's part of their dog family showering him with love and attention. We are so so lucky we found just the right home for our very special dog. Thank you Lois and George:)

AS always, GB is happy when I pick her up! I am so comfortable and at ease when when is in the care of Lois and George - such wonderful people!! Thank you, Lois and George!!
Lois and George are the warmest, most loving and kind dog lovers!!! They are truly a "gift" that has been sent to us. As we turn the corner to their home, Leo, knows he's arriving at his home away from home. We open the car and he bounds to their front door, knowing that he is going to be loved, safe, engaged and exhausted. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Lois and George are just amazing. Their home could easily be confused with a dog paradise. My dog had many doggy friends to socialize with and a comfortable home to relax and feel safe in.

While I was on my trip, I felt very good knowing my furry friend was in fantastic hands. I would recommend Lois and George for anyone looking for a dog vacation location, and I would ESPECIALLY recommend them for anyone with a Greyhound (as they know the breed very well).

GraciBel jumps out of the car and runs up to Lois' door - what a good feeling that is. Paw-some, as always!
We LOVE Lois and George. Wonderful, loving and caring hosts. This is Leo's home away from home. Thank you:)
Awesome, as always! My little GraciBel loves to visit with Lois and George. She actually runs up to the door when we arrive.

Late with this, Lois - just got my email back a couple of days ago. Had 2200 emails to go through.

Take care. GB and Jeanne

Great, as always, GraciBel gets out of the car and runs to Lois and George's front floor!!! Wonderful people!
As always, Lois and George are paw-some! GB came home so contend and happy - even ate all of her dinner, as suggested by Lois, and for which I am grateful. Wonderful folks!
Lois and George are the most loving, generous hosts. Leo came home happy, exhausted and thrilled that he will be going back in 2 days for another 5 STAR doggie vacation at Home for Hounds. Thank you Lois & George!!!!!
As always, Lois and George are "pawsome". So kind and caring. Wonderful people. GraciBel always enjoys her stay with them. We are so fortunate to have them in our lives! Thank you, Lois and George for taking care of GB!
As usual, my dogs couldn't care less about coming home with me. Loved and cared for while staying with Lois and George. I was the one who suffered from separation anxiety, not my dogs! Donna - Santa Ynez
Lois and George are the most amazing hosts. They care for each and every dog that visits their home with the same love and attention they give their own dogs. Our doggie, Leo, has spent many visits with Lois, George and Emery and we're so grateful that they have chosen to open their home to him. Thank you !!!

Lois and George are amazing! I had to find someone to watch my dog, Mickey, last minute. I literally asked them the day before I needed to leave town if they could watch him and they said yes! They were both so kind and welcoming of Mickey. I have never had anyone else watch my dog before, but Lois and George made me feel that he was in good hands. They sent me pictures everyday and I couldn't be happier with how well they took care of Mickey for me. He LOVED them! I highly recommend them to everyone. They book last minute, they send you pictures, they make sure your dog is safe, and they have the most playful environment for your dog stay busy. Thank you Lois and George!

For Lois and George, there just are not enough of your gold stars. They are awesome! And GraciBel is happy with them - always so kind and caring. I am so fortunate to have found these two lovely people.
Another wonderful doggie vacation for Leo. Lois and George always make him feel like their house is Leo's house. He's loved and cared for ...what more could we ask for. Lois and George ...you are the BEST...thank you so much for doing what you do:)
Lois and George are such wonderful people - loving and caring hosts for GraciBel, as well, I am certain, for all other pets in their care. GB runs up to the door when we arrive for a visit - a comfortable sign indeed. My lucky stars were shining the day I found Lois and George Hampton.
Thank you, Lois and George. I do not know what GB and I would do without you! We love you.

T'was indeed my lucky day when I found Lois and George - wonderful people - GraciBel is so happy spending time with them. They are caring and so very kind. Looking forward to seeing them again.
It's so great not to worry about my Chloe, she has been with Lois and George many times for long stays; I love getting the photos. I'll continue to use them for as long as they do this great service
Another great doggie vacation for Leo. Lois and George ...thank you so much for loving and caring for Leo as if he was your own dog. We are so grateful that you are in our lives:)
Perfectly happy and satisfied with the loving care that Lois and her husband George give my two dogs! This was our 2nd stay at Lois' and I knew my girls were safe and relaxed while we were gone for 12 days. Lois and George watch their doggie guests carefully and give them attention and love.

This is a 5 STAR doggie vacation home with 5 STAR hosts, Lois, George and Emery!!! Leo's home away from home, which gives us enormous comfort and peace of mind. There's no where else we would leave our Leo:)
This is Leo's vacation home away from home. He's been back so many times we've lost count. Leo knows when we're approaching Lois, George and Emery's home and starts whimpering as we get closer. Upon arrival he jumps out the back and runs up to the front door. He's loved, gets to swim daily in their beautiful pool, play with other doggies and get special attention and endless love. It makes our time away from him so enjoyable knowing he's in the a very special home with very special hosts, Lois, George and Emery. Thank you!

As always, both GB and I are happy to have spent time with Lois and George. Lois is her usual caring and patient self and am thrilled that GB is fond of George, as she rarely gets too close to anyone of the male gender! They are delightful people - day I found them was our lucky day! Thank you Lois and George.

Pawsome! as before. I am so comfortable with Lois and George. They are patient, kind, and so caring with GraciBel. Thank you so much Lois and George. We will see them again, in August. Perhaps even before.
GraciBel is visiting with Lois and George Hampton for the first time - what lovely, lovely folks they are - and so very kind and loving to my little dog. GB is an abused dog and shies away from men but is already cuddling up to George - do not know him as yet but what a sweet, gentle man he must be. And Lois is so very kind to both GB and to me. Her love for dogs is so obvious; even after meeting her one time I had absolutely no reservations about taking GB to spend time with her. I just might make a reservation for myself!!! Thank you Lois and George!

Lois & George are amazing hosts. Home for Hounds is Leo's home away from home. We highly recommend them:)
For once, I didn't worry about leaving my dogs with a sitter. They were happy and well-cared for while I was away. If I was a dog, I would love to stay with Lois and George, too! D. Lowe
Lois / George,

Thank you so much for all the love, snuggles and exercise you gave to Leo over the last week. He came home happy, pooped and in great shape:) Our trip was magic. The wedding was so so perfect. We were so in the moment without a worry in the world for anything back home. You both made that possible...by caring and loving our Leo. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You are BOTH very special people.

Hugs..
Reggie & Ricard

I can't say enough about Home for Hounds and Lois and George. They are FABULOUS!! Every time I leave my beloved Greyhound, Starsky, with them I have piece of mind knowing he is well taken care of and loves every minute of being on dog vacay with them! And, I absolutely love the updates and pictures that Lois sends during Starsky's stay. I whole heartedly recommend Home for Hounds!

Lois and her husband George could not have been more hospitable to our dog! I loved them from the first moment I met them! So I was able to enjoy my vacation 100% knowing that our "child" was enjoying his dogvacay and more importantly being taken care of by people who were honest, trustworthy and wonderful companions to our dog while we were away!

Once again our boys were well cared for, enjoyed their stay, and we always liked getting the photos of how they were doing too!
My dog had a great time. I got a lot of photos during our trip which was fun and comforting. Lois and George are definitely dog lovers. I have no hesitation to leaving my dog with them again
Another fun filled doggie sleepover for Leo. It was a short trip, but Leo didn't care. We pulled up to Lois, George & Jill's house and Leo knows it's his vacation family and everyone is waiting for his arrival. He leaps out and runs to their door. The daily updates and sweet comments always make us feel that we are great doggie parents and have chosen the most loving, kind family to take care of our dog. We'll be back in a few weeks for another visit and it's so comforting to know Leo will be having just as much fun on his vacation as we are on ours. THANK YOU so much, Lois & George!

Thank you!
Yet another work trip. Rob had a wonderful time though!
Thanks!
Rob tore a toenail by accident (not his first or last I'm sure), and Lois did a wonderful job taking him to her vet (mine did not have an opening). Very smooth. Very much appreciated her care for Rob
Rob and I are lucky to have found someone so reliable. He's stayed so many times I can't even count anymore
Great stay
Rob loves their two greyhounds!
Leo had the BEST time as always with Lois, George, Jill and Charlie. Their home is safe, loving and fun. This visit, which has been just one of many, Leo was taking medications, an ointment and ear drops. Lois and George administered his meds daily and sent us loving notes and wonderful pictures. We're off again to our son's wedding in April and Leo will go to Home for Hounds, his home away from home again:) Thank you Lois and George!

could not have found a better place; what a relief!!!
Another fabulous vacation for our precious Leo. He swam, played and got all the love and attention from Lois and George. Thank you so so much for being there and loving our Leo:)
Lois & George were wonderful. They worked with our dates and times as needed. You could also tell that they truly cared about caring for our dogs too. While our boys were certainly happy to see the family again, you could tell they were comfortable and enjoyed their time in their host home too.

Lois & George...thank you, thank you, thank you:) We decided to spend an extra night on vacation. I merely emailed Lois and asked if Leo could stay one more night. They said definitely YES:) Lois sent me a Custom Quote for the additional night and our vacation just continued for an extra day. Leo was thrilled and my husband and I we're relaxed and happy that Leo was happy! Many thanks!

Leo has stayed with Lois & George before ...so this is a return dog vacation for him. We really do mean it's a vacation for Leo. The moment we turn onto their block he sits up and knows he's going somewhere familiar and special. Lois, George, Jill, Charlie and all other guest doggies come out on leashes to greet Leo. He leaps from our car and knows it's time for fun. Leo charges to their backyard, George throws Leo's favorite "duckie" into the pool and then Leo dives in. For Leo this is the perfect home, filled with playtime, loving scratches and a spot at night right next to Lois and George's bed. We wouldn't leave our precious Leo anywhere else! Thank you Lois & George:)

Lois and George are the most AMAZING hosts ever. Our Golden Retriever, Leo, has vacationed with them a couple of times...this time for an entire week. We received daily updates and pics making us feel relaxed and connected to our 90 lb gentle giant. Their host doggies, Charlie and Jill, are welcoming and Leo now runs from our car to their front walk where they greet us. I've already reserved 3 upcoming vacations with them. I wouldn't leave our doggie anywhere else. This is Leo's home away from home and we're so glad we found them:) Thank you Lois, George, Charlie and Jill!!

Lois took excellent care of my 2 dogs! I could tell from pics she emailed during our absence that they were relaxed and comfortable. Lois has 2 greyhounds that are mellow and were easy for my dogs to get along with. My dogs were walked and carefully watched over. We will be very happy to visit Lois again for our vacations!

Lois and George are AMAZING hosts!!! They were warm, loving and attentive to all the needs of our Leo. Leo is a true water lover, but at the current time we do not have a home with a pool. When Leo arrived and saw their beautiful yard with the most amazing pool he just looked at them and they said "enjoy yourself". Leo jumped in and for the next 3 days was the happiest doggie in the world. They sent us daily updates along with pics of him swimming, being scratched in his favorite spots, chasing balls and going on walks. I'm not sure who had the better vacation....Leo or my husband and me:) We are already booked for a week in January and are thrilled that we have found a very special home, with very special hosts for our very special doggie, Leo. Thank you DogVacay!

Oh my, Chloe could not have been a luckier girl to find Lois and George. Lois understood that I had a personal emergency to deal with and made every extra effort to put me at ease. They are electronic savvy so getting paper work to them was easy. Their place is in a lovely area and they kept me updated with great snaps of my girl. I will be taking a longer trip in January or February and will make them my first priority for future boarding.

Tanner had a wonderful vacation! Lois was a fantastic host. She made Tanner feel at home right away. They went on walks together and were fed together. Lois even sent us photos throughout Tanners stay there! That was great. The setting was very calm and friendly. I'm not sure Tanner was ready to come home. ;-).
I highly recommend Lois to care for your dog. I will absolutely call on Lois again. Thank you.

Lois and George are true dog lovers and did a wonderful job taking care of our Standard Poodle Gryffin. He was walked and given the TLC that he is used to at home. After our experience with them, I wouldn't consider leaving our dog anywhere else.
Lois and her husband are very accomodating and loved Rob so much. I really appreciated their flexibility and helpfulness with my ever changing schedule.
It was greyt for Ella (a greyhound) to stay in a home setting rather than a regular boarding facility. I think she liked that her fellow dog companions were greyhounds. Would absolutely leave Ella with Lois and company again.
