About Joelle & Lauren

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Joelle and Lauren were both public school teachers that live in a sunny apartment that is down the street from Runyon Canyon and another smaller park.

Best part is, there's 2 of us! Your dog will always have someone to hang out with. Any weekend or holiday is a perfect time for us to give your pooch all the love and attention he or she needs!

Our dog, Bailey, is a sweet, 6 year old Bichon-Schnauzer-Chihuahua mix rescue from the Manhattan ACC. She loves to sleep, play with her toys, and model in her spare time.

We understand that being away from your dog can be hard, so we offer daily updates with photos and videos of what your canine family member is up to. Interested in seeing a day in the life of a pup at LA Boarding and Taxi, check out @baileyandcompany on Instagram for more pictures and videos of Bailey and all the friends from DogVacay.

We also know that trekking with your pup can be a hassle. Let us do the work! We offer flexible pick up/drop off --- $20 (one way) if your home is 5 miles or less away. However, if you live further, we can work it out.

Having a car also allows us to take your pup to all the parks the city offers as well as the vet if needed.

Must be housebroken pets only. Meet-n-Greets are required for new pups.

You can take a peek at what happens at LA Boarding and Taxi in these two ways.

Joelle and Lauren are the best - Harper loves them, and is always a little sad when she comes back home because she misses them so much.
Again and again Joelle and Lauren went out of their way to make my pup feel safe and welcome and to help me enjoy my vacation knowing that my little one was being cared for so well.
Joelle and Lauren were great. I was able to make a last minute reservation and they went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly. They respond very quickly and they sent photos and updates during the visit right away which really helped me.
Joelle & Lauren are awesome! My pup Olllie loved his stay. The girls sent video/photo updates daily. So nice to know Ollie was in great hands and could play with their pup Bailey. I definitely want them to host him again!
Belus always has a great time with Joelle & Lauren!
Really good experience-- my pups were right at home. Sorry to see them travel out of the city
So great! Joelle and Lauren sent regular pictures of my dog and I felt very confident that she was in good hands. Best dog sitters ever!
Great! They were so kind with our pup. They send several pictures! Thank you!
Joelle and Lauren were wonderful hosts for Ramsey. She had a great time and was well taken care of.
We had a perfect Labor Day weekend thank to Joelle and Lauren. They are very accommodating they really Pro! They took good care of Macintosh and wait for us very late without complaining Thanks again ,.,
Joelle and Lauren are my neighbors and after living next to them for 4 years and knowing their love and dedication to their dog Bailey and their friends' dogs, we knew that Lola staying with them was a no-brainer!

Our sitter had to cancel at the last minute, and they were extremely accommodating with our change of plans and drop off timing.

They continually updated us on how Lola was doing and we could tell that she was having a blast since the first photo they sent through showed she made herself at home instantly on their couch with a huge grin on her face!

We can't recommend these guys more -- 5-star sitting from people that genuinely adore and care for all dogs --every year at the holiday season they even stop by every apartment with dogs and pass out hand baked dog cookies! Look no further for the most caring and sweetest dog sitters in NYC!
Joelle and Lauren watched our little Lawrence while we were in the hospital for our son's birth. They were so open and accommodating in the weeks leading up to the "Big Day", as you never know when you're going to have to go in. We were so grateful for their flexibility at such a stressful time and having the peace of mind that our puppy baby was in good hands. Thanks a million!
Joelle and Lauren were fantastic. They shared photos of Guthrie as he settled in-which was reassuring for us. He had a great time!
Joelle and Lauren are the BEST BEST. I've never seen Tooti so comfortable and happy. AND the pick up / drop off process was soo easy. Thank you!
Joelle and Lauren,
Took great care of our dog Bear. We received text updates with pictures and could see that he was having a good time. I think they even gave him a brush, he came back looking great and very happy. They met us at the curb both on the drop off and pick up.
We are very happy and will look to book with Joelle and Lauren then next time we need to be separated from our sweet boy.
Thanks. -Asher
Teddy and I had a fantastic experience with Joelle, Lauren and Bailey. They are by far the most professional dog sitters that we have experienced and to top it off are super friendly! I really appreciated their flexibility in terms of scheduling a meet and greet as well as pickup and drop off. In addition, I liked that they had me fill out a questionnaire which gave me peace of mind knowing that they had all the information they needed for Teddy. Joelle and Lauren were also great about being in touch and sending updates as I had requested. Teddy came back happy and exhausted from his vacation! Bailey is also very sweet and mellow. Highly recommended!
Great communication before the stay, daily updates and pictures during the stay, and most importantly Milo came back in great spirits. Plus Joelle and Lauren are super nice and incredibly easy to do business with.
Addy had a great time, once again. She loves going on her own little vacations and I love the peace of mind I get from knowing Joelle and Lauren will be taking great care of my little one.
Great hosts. I highly recommend them!
Our dog Bella stayed over again and she had a great time we think. Great hosts, we got lots of pictures and updates.
Joelle and Lauren where great! I felt so much better knowing Umie was in loving arms while we were away!
This was my second time sending my dog, Honey, to Joelle and Lauren. She was thrilled to see them when I dropped her off! And the minor adjustment to the duration of her stay was an easy fix. They're very flexible and understanding.
Joelle and Lauren are great! They sent me as many updates as I requested and always answered any questions I had very quickly.
Once again Addy had a wonderful stay with Joelle & Lauren. I was completely at ease on my weekend away and came home to a very happy, well cared for pup. Highly recommend.
Joelle & Lauren were very attentive and provided frequent updates while I was away. When I picked up Bax, I could tell he was happy and didn't want to leave!
Joelle & Lauren were incredible hosts! I got multiple pictures of my little guy while I was away and each and every time he looked perfectly content. I am really happy to have connected with Joelle & Lauren and definitely plan on having them watch Rusty in future. Wonderful experience!
Where do I begin? Joelle and Lauren were AWESOME. This was our first time leaving our pup Spencer with them and he had a blast. Our pup is a very hyper puppy who suffers from separation anxiety but while in the care and company of Joelle, Lauren and their dog Bailey, Spencer was felt right at home. Both Joelle and Lauren, were very thorough in finding out what they could do to best meet Spencer's needs which I truly appreciated. They took him on several walks a day and to the dog park. We were happy to received the cute videos and photos of Spencer letting us know that he was okay and adjusting well. We will definitely be using their services again.
Lauren and Joelle were really great hosts to Bella. This was our first time using this site and we didn't know what to expect. Lauren went out of her way to make us feel comfortable by meeting with us first and putting all our concerns at ease. They then picked up our dog while we were already away and were prompt and really professional. They kept us updated with daily pix and texts and even tried to train our puppy a bit. She was wiped out when we picked her up so clearly she had a great time. She got to play with their cute dog Bailey and other doggie friends. Thanks again for the great care!
Your search is officially over if you are looking for a trusted companion for your four-legged friend. Joelle and Lauren are the best!! My fiancé and I had never left our dog with anyone prior to this, but the second Lauren came into our apartment our nerves began to to dissipate. Lauren came into the apartment, helped Teddy to transition into thinking of Lauren as an "old friend" of ours while we quickly escaped to catch our flight. Within the hour we received an update that they were doing well, truly helping out our minds at ease. Lauren continued this throughout the time we were gone. I could see what an awesome time Teddy was having ! Lauren did such a good job that I truly think Teddy felt he just had a friend over for a day! Lauren clearly is an amazing person and Teddy was completely at ease when we returned.
I 100% trust Lauren and Joelle and cannot wait to be able to have Teddy hang out with them soon.
Amazing hosts!!!!! Wonderfu to our dog. He had the time of his life. He loved them and loved Bailey. We were so happy to get pictures of the two of them playing that any residual anxiety was completely alleviated. We felt guilty bringing him back to our boring old home!!!!!
The girls were great! They were lovely with Zoe. When she was getting to their home she was happy and excited to see them again. There is no better review than the dog's reaction!

I must add that I was feeling terribly sick when I arrived to get Zoe and the girls were very considerate and helped me pick her up.
Leaving my dog, Dixie, for the first time in the hands of strangers was a HUGE deal for me. I wanted to make sure she was in good hands. I felt confident after meeting with Lauren, Joelle and their dog Bailey that she'd be well attended. Still, I was a little uneasy when I left her behind. Lauren and Joelle quickly put my worries to rest with the cutest daily updates! Plus, just by how Dixie responded when I saw her, I know she'd had a nice time with them. I will definitely be a repeat customer and would highly recommend them!
Joelle, Lauren and Bailey were awesome! This was our first time using DogVacay and they were really accommodating in answering questions, doing a quick pre-meet and making us feel at ease with the process. They provided a helpful questionnaire to ensure Kevin was well taken care of during his stay. No to mention the quick pic/text updates while we were out of town. We'd highly recommend them!
I was extremely impressed by the ease of this process. I chose Lauren,Joelle and Bailey based on their reviews hoping that they weren't fake or fluffed by the company. These ladies are for real! Immediate response and communication. The price was quite reasonable and they offered round trip pickup and drop off service. They sent me photos and videos of my dog Nina and she was so happy I got a little jealous! She was having the greatest time with them. Definitely would recommend these ladies to all dog owners. Hope they continue to do this service because I plan on being a repeat customers for many,many years. I wouldn't change a thing about the experience because I am a 100% satisfied customer. Thank You Lauren, Joelle and Bailey for being so cool and awesome!!!!!
Lauren, Joelle & Bailey are the best!! I am completely at peace when Moss is with them. Plus the photos and notes they send keep me updated about their adventures. I couldn't ask for better!!
They were so kind and went above and beyond to make everything easy. We were disorganized; they were flexible. We were anxious; they were calm and professional. We have a new dog with seperation anxiety, and even he clearly had a nice stay.
Joelle, Lauren, and Bailey were wonderful and I will definitely ask them to watch my dog Larry again in the future. They were responsive when I first contacted them and we were able to set up a time to meet very easily. It was very clear that Larry would be in good hands. They sent regular updates with pictures while I was away and even repaired his bed when he tore a hole in it (which was completely unnecessary)! They're both incredibly nice and Larry had a great week with them while I was away. Can't recommend them enough.
I booked with Joelle and Lauren just days before my vacation and they were so very quick to respond and meet-and-greet to ensure Finn would like it there. He seemed right at home, especially when he investigated their corner of toys! While I was away, they kept me updated with pictures and brief texts to let me know what he was up to and how he was doing, which were always positive. When I picked him up I could tell he had a happy, comfortable stay with Joelle, Lauren, and their dog Bailey. They even sent him off with some treats that he liked! I would absolutely book with them again and would recommend them to anyone :)
Another great visit with Joelle, Lauren and Bailey! Joelle & Lauren have been so helpful and flexible with scheduling to help watch Stella while our house was under construction. I know that Stella is always in great hands with them. Thank you Joelle & Lauren for being such great hosts!
Our little guy stayed with Joelle, Lauren, and Bailey while we went away for a long weekend and he was in great hands. They were super accommodating with key drop off and picked him up, as we had an early flight. We always know that he is in great hands with them! He comes back nice and tuckered out, too, so we know he got some great playtime in!
Lawrence stayed with Joelle, Lauren and Bailey while we stepped away for a little babymoon and he had a great visit. We love the little updates we get and how excited he is when he figures out where he is going. It's a great sign that he is definitely loved like one of their own.
What an excellent experience with Joelle and Lauren! Both of them were extremely caring for my pet and made him feel right at home. I travel once a month for work and you'd better believe that I'll be using them for my pets second home away from home!
I can't saw enough good things about Joelle and Lauren. They do an amazing job handling the logistics of drop-offs/ pick-ups and show genuine affection for my pup. Highly recommended!
Bruna had a blast! We got great dog pics while we were gone, too! Thanks L and J!
Still the best! Thank you both for everything and happy holidays!
My Chihuahua, Sam , had his very first stay away from home with Joelle and Lauren and I am over the moon with how he felt right at home--It was just two nights but it made me feel free for the future- to go for longer -so loving were they and the photos I received of dogs resting peacefully made me so happy. I cannot say enough about how Joelle and Lauren's home and experience with dogs worked out so perfectly- Sam was not even THAT glad to see me!
Joelle, Lauren & Bailey continue to be SO awesome and a great place for Moss (pup) to stay while I'm away. The care Moss receives is evident in the fun action photos or videos I get. They are lifesavers!!
amazing as always. Joelle and Lauren are the two best dogsitters ever. Bruna doesn't want to leave when they take care of her!
Joelle and Lauren were so sweet with Daisy. They were great at checking in, asked lots of important questions about Daisy's routine, and she came back happy and healthy. I'll definitely be booking with them again.
Lawrence always has a great stay with Joelle, Lauren, and Bailey. He was so excited when he arrived that he forgot to say goodbye to his dad! Hard for us, but so wonderful to know that he is so happy while we're away. They are great communicators and send fun photos and videos for updates. We could not be more pleased with them as hosts.
Stella has had the pleasure of staying with Joelle and Lauren a few times - there are so many wonderful things to say; it's hard to decide where to start.

We met at a meet n greet in their home; you could see right away they were very experienced how to welcome a new dog into their home to make sure that Stella was comfortable and introduced properly to their dog Bailey.

While I we were away, we received daily updates and photos of Stella's adventures. They took her to the park, on long walks, and around Brooklyn.

5+ stars for Joelle, Lauren and Bailey. They are my go to for a home away from home for Stella.
This was the first time we used the website and we are very happy we chose Joelle and Lauren! Our dog, Zoe had a wonderful time, we could tell right when we picked her up that she had been comfortable and safe with the girls. Joelle and Lauren are friendly, down-to-earth people. They have their own dog, Bailey, who is sociable and a good companion. They truly cared for our dog, we know now we have a great place for Zoe when we have to travel out of town.
Joelle, Lauren & Bailey were the most excellent of hosts. We could not have asked for more. Pick-up and drop-off was a breeze. Their updates were prompt, frequent but unobtrusive. And the photos they took of our Milo were stunning!

We cannot recommend them enough as hosts. Milo is certainly looking forward to his next Doggie Vacay with his new friend Bailey!
Joelle and Lauren are still the best! BRUNA doesn't want to leave when we come to pick her up Bc she loves them so much! Will always book with these two whenever they're available.
Joelle, Lauren & Bailey are so incredibly wonderful! Photos & videos of my pup during her visit tell me she's having a great time AND lets me relax. We couldn't ask for better hosts!!
Joelle and Lauren were great hosts for our dog Mei - we couldn't have asked for more! Even Bailey, they're doggie host, showed Mei a great vacation. The proof was how excited our dog was to see them all when we dropped Mei off for a second visit.

Highly recommended!!
Joelle and Lauren were fantastic from start to finish. I could tell from their questions that they genuinely care about dogs and wanted my pup to be happy and comfortable during her visit. They made pick-up and drop-off worry-free.
Most impressively, they sent some of the cutest pictures of my dog I've ever seen. It brought a huge smile to my face each time I received one and helped me rest assured that my pup was enjoying her weekend as much as I was!
Joelle and Lauren are the perfect hosts - honestly couldn't have asked for a better couple for our puppy to stay with. They gave her great care and attention, updated us with photos, and kept good detail on her activities/eating. We'll definitely return to Joelle and Lauren.
A++++++++++ Cannot recommend these two enough, and I'll say it every time we leave town! Super accommodating, super great.
Always the best! Love these two so much, as does Bruna!
They were excellent. They kept me informed daily. And my dogs looked very comfortable with them. I would recommend them to anyone.
Daily photos and/or videos let me know that Moss (the pup) was safe, happy, loved, and tuckered out throughout her stay with Joelle, Lauren, and Bailey. I couldn't ask for more accommodating and invested hosts for Moss!!!
I cannot say enough good things about Joelle and Lauren!

I found them after a previous sitter abruptly cancelled on me. After meeting them to get a sense of how they'd get along with my pup, Addy, I immediately felt at ease.

They are very trustworthy and responsible, but most of all, I could tell from the pics and texts they sent me that they were very loving and caring towards my girl. That made me feel much better about leaving her for a week while on vacation across the country.

I highly recommend them as sitters and hope to use them again in the future.
Amazing! You would be crazy to book anyone else! They are so responsive and kept me updated daily. Pooh tried to follow them out the door when he was dropped back off with me, haha if that is any indication these 2 are great great sitters!
Joelle and Lauren were so great with Bronx, keeping me posted with photos and texts about what they were up to. Bronx is pooped so it's clear he had a great time. Can't wait to use them again!
Best dogsitters a family could ask for. They truly love dogs and keep you updated along the way. We will always use them!
I wish I could give 6 stars! We just got back from travelling in Europe and the only thing that concerned us about our trip was leaving our beloved dog behind. We need not have worried! Axl had the time of his life. We could tell by the daily updates. photos, texts and emails that arrived from Joelle and Lauren. After the first one, we stopped worrying and really began to enjoy our vacation, knowing our dog was in such loving hands and had the companionship of sweet Bailey. It is wonderful to know that we can now travel and never again have to worry about what we will do with Axl.
We had a wonderful experience with Joelle, Lauren and Bailey. Our Lawrence stayed with them for 9 nights while we were on vacation. Joelle and Lauren were very responsive in setting up the reservation and accommodating our schedule for a Meet and Greet. Lawrence and Bailey must be long-lost cousins and seemed to have the best time together while we were away. Lauren and Joelle sent great updates and lots of fun photos and videos that gave us real peace of mind. We could have not have been more pleased with our experience and will definitely be returning to them in the future.
They were both AWESOME. Gave us daily updates on Bruna -- sometimes 2x per day -- and our pup got along swimmingly with their pup. Two lovely people, can't recommend them enough.
Super happy, just like last time. Joelle & Lauren were great, and helped out on very short notice. My pup will be back for sure!
Great experience, every time! I travel frequently for work, and when I'm away Chloe loves spending time with Lauren, Joelle, and their dog Bailey. When Chloe is with them I know she's getting premium care--long walks, tons of play time and most importantly lots of love. They are responsive, send picture frequent updates, have a car, flexible schedules, and are just genuinely nice people. Chloe and I are so glad to have met them.
Super friendly, communicative, and sent some super cute photos of my pup. He even has a new girlfriend after this stay. He'll definitely be back!
Had a great experience w/ Joelle, Lauren, and dog, Bailey during a lengthy, ten day boarding. Loved the updates and super friendly service. Highly recommended!!!
Joelle and Lauren are fantastic dog sitters. Joey and Bailey got along like a house on fire. We may need to leave Joey with Joelle, Lauren, and Bailey just to spend time with them!
I am completely comfortable leaving my pup in Joelle's care. I'll continue to book with her!
So many great updates while I was away! The pictures are wonderful - Joelle is great at capturing funny moments that let me know Belus is enjoying her "vacay." My dog is not great with change or new environments and Joelle, Lauren and Bailey did a great job making her feel at home. The daily updates let me relax, knowing Belus is being well cared for.
Joelle took great care of my Drakey! She sent regular updates of how Drake's stay was going and was very accommodating with scheduling drop off/pick up times. I felt very comfortable having my pup in her care.
Joelle was a great host to my dog Maddie. Super friendly and thoughtful. She even checked in with me and sent me photos of Maddie during her stay. Thanks so much, Joelle! I hope Maddie can stay with you again in the future.
Joelle was fantastic! With adorable daily updates, I got to know what an amazing time the pup had. She also was wonderful about pick up and dropoff, and made the whole experience so easy. Highly recommend!!!
Responsive, thorough, friendly and responsible dog sitter! Took great care of my girl. Highly recommended.
Joelle (+ Bailey et al) was absolutely lovely and beyond accommodating. My rather hyper dog spent a long holiday weekend there and I can tell he had a ball by the rare fact that he came home calm and worn out--a sign of good times had. As a first time Dog Vacay user, I can confidently say I have absolutely zero regrets in leaving my dog with Joelle and I highly recommend her for the care of your pooch.
Joelle was such a great host! She sent photos of my pup Wall-E every day, and as a plus, Wall-E seemed to really get along with her dog. No complaints.
Driggs spent two weeks with Joelle, Lauren and their dog Bailey. It was so reassuring to have leave our pup with such lovely ladies. They were responsible, organized and, most importantly, compassionate and caring. It's obvious that they are inherent dog lovers. I highly recommend this couple and will most definitely be using them again in the future.
