About Lauren & Dan

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! We are a husband-wife team who absolutely love dogs and traveling, so we know what you're looking for: a home environment where your dog is loved like family and hosts who help you have peace of mind while separated from your furry loved one. Look no further for a vacay host for your dog! What sets us apart:

-We only take ONE owner's dog/dogs at a time. We are one of the few boarders to have this policy. No more than 2 dogs accepted from same owner. This allows us to give our sole attention to your dog without worrying about how they might interact with someone else's pet.

Drop off/pick up: If no overlap with another booking we can make exceptions on this but generally drop off from 2pm-9pm and pick up from 7am-2pm (note: we may be out and about on Sunday mornings for several hours). We currently do not offer instant bookings as our schedule may vary day-to-day although we're home 90% of the time.

-Jack, our 5 year old rescue lab mix, is a medium size at 60lbs and gets along great with all dogs! He is super friendly, gentle, and loves to play. You will love him and your dog will, too!

-We have a large fenced-in yard for plenty of exercise and safety & lots of playtime with Jack! We do not leave the dogs outside while we are gone, and we do not require your dog to be crated while we are out of the house.

-Daily photo and/or video updates of your dog for you while vacaying with us. We'll send you lots of cute photos of your pup and updates for your entire trip via text or email (some examples above of past guests)!

-Our house is located on a quiet street in unincorporated Dekalb right between City of Atlanta border and City of Decatur. If coming from the interstate, we're about 3-5 min off of exit 61B/Glenwood on I-20.

-One other adult family member lives with us who also is a dog lover and is willing to give lots of belly rubs and pets but she is not the one who would be caring for your dog.

-We are only willing to host dogs that are spayed & neutered.

-We are willing to host all sizes, ages, and dog breeds! We LOVE big dogs are not intimidated by larger, strong dogs (or small dogs with "Napoleon complex", haha!).

Other details to know about booking with us:

-We require a short meet and greet with your dog before booking in our home or at a dog park.

-Your dog must have paperwork showing immunizations are up to date (can be emailed), and must be on some type of flea medication.

-We do not take any dog with a bite history of biting humans, unless your dog protected you from getting mugged or something. :-) Dogs who have bitten other dogs will be taken on a case by case basis.

-At this time we do not accept puppies less than 2 year old.

Send us a message or a meet-n-greet request today! We're happy to answer any questions you may have.

*Our calendar is updated frequently, but we fill up quickly, so be sure to confirm availability with us for your dates! Please verify availability for blue/available days as we may have some folks who have already been communicating about those days but have not officially booked yet. Thank you! :-)

*Our silly Jack set up an Instagram account! Follow him @Jack_the_Lab_Mix to follow all his shenanigans and excitement about his friends that come to stay!

Lauren and Dan are great! We had a meet and greet with my dog Kali and their dog Jack, and all went well. Jack is very good natured, playful dog, and he and Kali got along just fine. Lauren and Dan sent photos every day, which I very much appreciated. Their house is comfortable for dogs, and they have a large, fenced yard. I've booked my next dog vacay with them! Highly recommend.
Lauren and Dan are so kind and my dog Banjo and their dog Jack got along very well. They have a wonderful back yard to play in and I felt so comfortable leaving Banjo in their care. The were most gracious and accommodating.
Sputnik is so bored now! He had such a great time with Lauren & Dan. Their pup, Jack was a perfect playmate for Sputnik. Laurent and Dan are great people! Can't wait for the next Vacay
My dog had a blast with Lauren, Dan, and Jack. Jack was a super playmate for him, and Lauren and Dan were great about sending pictures and video updates. We will definitely choose them again to care for our pup when we're away!
Thank you Lauren and Dan for taking care of Ray and sending pictures and letting us know how he is doing. We appreciate the care that you give him when he stays with you, it puts our minds at ease knowing he is taken care of.
Lauren & Dan have watched my dog for me on several occasions. They do a fantastic job. I really appreciate how attentive they are. I love that they are constantly sending me pics during his stay. Thanks so much. See ya soon.
Sunshine had a great time at Lauren and Dan's. She and the resident dog had fun playing together and I got great pictures of all the action. I would definitely use Lauren and Dan for future stays.
Thank you Lauren, Dan and Jack for taking care of our big boy. Lauren and Dan sent us daily pics of our dog and how he was doing, in addition to some great videos. Their in house dog host Jack kept our big boy busy and in play during his stay. We appreciate the care and attention that you gave Ray while we were out of town. We will be calling upon you again.
Lauren & Dan sent us lots of pics and videos every day and Jackson seemed to be having a great time at their house. We would definitely book with them again.
There are not enough stars to review Lauren, Dan & Jack! I have been positively overloaded with their hospitality, I can write for days. Not only are they so sweet and welcoming, their dog is super awesome too! Macy & Misha did not want to leave; they had a blast. We got so many pictures and videos during their stay, I was beyond impressed and overjoyed to see them happy! I had no doubt that they would have a great time. I plan on taking them back to this paw-radise! Maybe they will let me stay too :) Thank you SO much! So grateful we found you!
This was our first visit with Lauren and Dan. Thank you so much for taking care of our dog. We could be away relaxed, knowing that Lauren and Dan were caring for our big boy as was Jack their in- house sweet dog who played with and was the perfect host to ours. Dan and Lauren sent us many pics throughout the week with commentary on our dog's behavior which we really appreciated. They took him on walks and dog parks to let him get his exercise. They were also very responsive to our emails. We will certainly count upon them again when we have to leave town and can't take our big boy with us. Thanks again, until next time.
Dan and Lauren were wonderful, as always. They sent daily photos of our dogs and were especially caring of one of our dogs who was ill. This was our fourth time with them. We hope they will continue to welcome our dogs into their loving care.
Lauren and Dan took wonderful care of our dog Frankie for two full days and one night. Frankie had a blast playing with Jack in the backyard and seemed very comfortable at their place. They sent pics and little updates while we were away letting us know how things were going, which was very great as it was the first time we'd been away from the dog overnight. Overall, we had a great experience and will definitely leave Frankie with Lauren and Dan again!
This is Beau and Maura, we had a wonderful stay at Jacks house. There was lots to do, we really liked to hang with Jack and play ball with Miss Lauren and Mr. Matt in the big back yard, they were both very caring with us. The house was nice and comfy for us to roam around in. Miss Lauren took lots of Pics of us and updated our humans each day. We give Jack’s House (run by Lauren, and Matt), 5 Paws WAY up.
Lauren & Dan were great with my pup. He has a bit of a Napoleon complex and also has a puzzling fear of men. Lauren & Dan took it all in stride. And their big boy, Jack, was great with Rocky. He came home happy, healthy and in great spirits. We will definitely turn to Lauren & Dan for future sitting needs.
Once again we had an excellent experience with Lauren and Dan. One of our dogs has been diagnosed with cancer and was on pain medication. Lauren and Dan eased our mind while we were away by giving such wonderful care to both of our animals. Jack, their dog brings out the best in all his visitors. We actually think they looked happier and healthier when we returned. We are so grateful for this so wonderful care. We have already booked another time with Lauren and Dan.
Lauren and Dan (and Jack!) were great. I was worried Benson would not want to come home. They texted me every day with updates and images of Benson and Jack playing, which I really appreciated. I will definitely reserve with Lauren and Dan for our next trip!
My pup stayed with Lauren and Dan and seemed to have a wonderful time. Lauren sent photos every evening of him and their dog, Jack, which was really reassuring for me, since we hadn't left him with anyone besides a close friend in the past. I think he missed them when he came home!!
Lauren and Dan were our first experience with DogVacay and they were great. Able to do some pretty last minute arrangements, and super flexible with everything. Jack was also a great host and was very personable. Thanks so much!
Lauren and Dan provide excellent care for pets in their home. This is the second time we have used them and this time we had two dogs for them to watch. They have a fenced in yard which offers lots of space to run. They are gracious and caring, providing daily email photos and updates. We have already booked another dog vacay date with them! When Dan and Lauren watch our dogs everyone gets a vacation!
They took fantastic care of our dog Bo! He had such a great time playing with their dog Jack, and I was confident that he was in great hands during his stay. Highly recommend!
Dan, Lauren and Jack were great. Anyone that knows me, knows that my baby boy is my life. So I am very particular about anyone that even breathes in his direction, let alone, watches him.

Dan, Lauren and Jack were great! My little Winny seemed to have a good time hanging out with them for the day. He told me (yes he talks to me :) ) that he can't wait to stay with them again. I definitely recommend them for anyone looking to have their little son her daughter watched. And Jack is so cute and playful. Winston is his new honorary big brother!
Lauren and Dan were amazing. From our first conversation, to our meet and greet and beyond, we knew our baby was going to be in good hands. They are warm, friendly, and definate animal lovers. Their house has a huge fenced in yard, and their pup Jack was awesome with our Molly. They sent us regular updates and photos...amazing photos actually. We will definately look them up again should the need arise:)
Lauren and Dan provided excellent care for our very active dog. They sent photos and updates which helped us enjoy our time away without worry. We hope to use them again in the very near future.
Lauren and Dan were AWESOME!!! They treated our dog Jake like their own and took great care of him. The first day we received multiple (professional looking) pictures of Jake playing with their dog Jack. That right away put us at ease that Jake would be having a blast the rest of the trip. They sent pictures everyday along with cute captions letting us know everything was going well. Communication was excellent! When I brought Jake home, he slept for 2 days straight which is a sign he played a lot! You can tell how much passion Lauren and Dan have for animals and I would not hesitate to book with them again! I have used Dog Vacay multiple times and this by far was the best experience I had!
I was so impressed and happy with my experience boarding my dog Darcy with Lauren, Dan, and their dog Jack. I was pretty nervous beforehand as I have never left my dog with anyone overnight before. Also, my dog can be a handful as she is very high energy. Lauren was so sweet and put my concerns at ease from the beginning.

I got multiple pictures and updates a day. It was so great and helped me not to worry about Darcy while I was gone. I could tell she had such a great time playing with Jack all day and was getting plenty of exercise. I think Darcy may have even been a little bit sad to leave Lauren, Dan, and especially Jack. It truly was a dog vacation for her!

I will definitely be booking with Lauren and Dan in the future!
