About Jake & Laurie

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

Animal loving, married couple seeking adorable four-legged friends for a stay-cay in our child-free, pet-free home. One of us works from home, so you will never want for attention, walks, or cuddles. Experience as previous doggie parents who would spoil you as if you were our own. Would love to meet up and see if we're a great match for your needs!

Please check out our calendar for our current availability. Although we love all dogs, we can only take small and medium sized ones. Woof!

Our pups had a great time staying with Laurie and Jake. They are easy to communicate with, flexible, and really seem to look forward to welcoming dogs into their home. Even when our male dog was naughty during his stay with them, Laurie handled it kindly, professionally, and calmly. I would highly recommend their services for your dog babies!
Harlie Had a Great time with Jake and Laurie, We will definitely have her stay again. Thank you
Jack & Laurie were fantastic. They were so informative of what was going on and they providing daily pictures. I felt so comfortable with our two crazy dogs with them. Most people are a little hesitant about our dogs because one of them barks like crazy but Jake and Laurie did awesome with him. I couldn't be more appreciative of Jake and Laurie and I would HIGHLY recommend you don't look further and book with them.
We have now moved away and had to leave our dog with a different host and it made us appreciate Jake & Laurie so much more. Out of 8 different hosts that we have used through this website (in 4 different states) they are hands down the most caring, animal-loving, nicest people we have ever met. We still talk about them often as we know our dog, Mia had the best time whenever she was with them and it breaks our hearts that she will probably never have as great of a dog vacay experience as she did with them. She was always spoiled rotten while at their place and we can't say enough good things about them! Jake & Laurie -- from the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU!!
Jake and Laurie are so kind and always make sure Pearl feels safe and comfortable at their home. We couldn't ask for anything more when we're away. It's so nice not having to worry about her and to know she's in great hands!
Laurie and Jake are great! They treated Tobey like he was their dog. Laurie even sent me some texts with pictures of Tobey, which really helps when you're missing your dog. I would highly recommend these hosts to anyone! We already have our next session booked.

We leave our dog, Mia with Jake & Laurie about once every two months (we travel a lot!) and sometimes we think that she likes them better than us as she totally ignores us as soon as we step foot in their house. They are real gems -- do not hesitate to book with them!
Laurie and Jake were great to our Brady!! We felt so comfortable leaving him with them and he seems happy to be with them!! They also kept in contact with us each day making it easier on us!! Thanks again for your great hospitality!!

Jake and Laurie are great! My dog has a few restrictions based on outdoor interactions and they were perfectly understanding and accommodating.

During my day away from my dog I received multiple updates and pictures via text so I knew everything was going well. I was completely at ease knowing my pup was in good hands for the day.

Great sitters and I hope to see them again!
Amazing!!!! Thank you so much for taking such great care of Indy during our family vacation. Jake and Laurie are awesome people that have a true love of animals. Look no further when looking for an host family for your next vacation you've found the best!!!

Jenn & family
My dog was very well cared for and came home perfectly happy!
Once again a great experience!
Jake & Laurie were amazing and some of the nicest folks I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with! Barley came home healthy and happy as ever. Was able to book on 24 hours notice which was amazing and they were incredibly accommodating! Highly recommended!! Will be booking again with them next time!
Jake & Laurie were very accommodating on a short notice and we couldn't be more grateful! We always make sure to book our dog's vacays with them as it is the only place we have taken her where she seems to feel right at home.
We continue to book with Jake & Laurie again and again and our dog, Mia absolutely loves them!!
Bailey did very well with Jake & Laurie. We will definitely go back. Thank you so much for taking him.
Fabulous!! We can't say enough about Laurie and Jake! We felt so comfortable leaving our little girl with them. This was the first time we have left Nittany with someone other than family, and we didn't worry at all. Looking forward to our next trip, and so is Nittany!
Laurie and Jake were the perfect hosts to our Little Henry, an anxious little guy who is very attached to us. Henry spent the day with these two great people from 10:00-5:00 so that our family might enjoy a local zoo in the area. I felt very comfortable that Henry was in good hands; they took the time to ask us all about what makes Henry "tick" - and we could tell that they really wanted to make his time with them as comfortable as possible. Thanks so much Laurie and Jake, highly recommend!
Jake & Laurie were great and very thorough in getting to know everything about Mia prior to us dropping her off, which made us feel much better about leaving her. They sent pictures and updates throughout her stay. We would definitely use them again in the future and Mia said she had a great time!
You've found the perfect place for your dog! Laurie and Jake are the fantastic hosts. They're both sincere and genuine dog lovers with expert experience in dog behavior and care. We had a wonderful meet and greet. Our dog, Harris, took a liking to them immediately. We received great pictures and anecdotes during the week. They took him on long walks and hikes. It was great to know he was being loved and doted on by such caring and generous people. Harris wasn't just a border for the week, he became part of their family. We're already booking his next vacay!
I cannot say enough fabulous things about Laurie and Jake and our experience with them. I was a bundle of nerves leaving our Pixie for the first time. After meeting Jake and Laurie, my nerves settled immediately. They were so genuine and I could see they would take really good care of Pixie. I could also see that Pixie felt immediately at ease with them and in their home. While away, they sent many photos and updates, showing us that all was well, which allowed us a worry-free vacation. We could see and sense that they were really loving Pixie and providing her all the comforts of home. They were also aware that she thrives when out and about on walks and such, so they walked her plenty and even took her on a day trip hike. Pixie loves the car and I know she loved that day with them. We are so grateful for the love and care they showed her and us, as it isn't easy dealing with a worried mama:)) We are already planning our next trip and have such comfort knowing Pixie will be enjoying her own doggievacay with Laurie and Jake:)))))
