About Lauren

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I'm Lauren, I'm a biology major at the University of Akron with hopes of becoming a Physicians Assistant. I love animals, especially dogs! I've been dog sitting for about 6 years now. I started off watching a coworkers dog while she was out of town for business and soon enough, word got out and business started booming. My family has a beagle named Emma and a Sheppard/lab mix named Rocky. We just recently had to put my Border Collie/lab mix Bear down. I am very active, I love hiking and going for walks so I have no problem taking your pups for walks if you'd like! Anything else you'd like to know just ask!

I can always tell whether or not my pups were cared for by the level of anxious greetings when we get home. With Lauren, they looked at us like "Oh, were you gone?". We left them for a weekend. I left very detailed directions for Lauren and she followed them exactly. She was also great at texting me whenever she had a question and was very responsive whenever I texted her. I would trust her again to take care of them the next time we're out of town.

Lauren did a great job taking care of our dog, Cooper and our two cats, Bailey and Tazzy. She left our house in fantastic shape. She kept in contact with us via text messages and even sent us pics of our three babies throughout our 2 week vacation. It was great to come home to see that all the animals were well cared for and our house was exactly how we left it. I would highly recommend Lauren and plan to hire her again for our next vacation. Thanks Lauren!

Lauren is great! We were out of town over Memorial Day for 4.5 days and came home to happy & healthy pets and an intact house. This was our first time having a stranger stay in our home and I was nervous. I felt much better after we met Lauren. Very professional, calm, and natural with our cat & dog...even when the cat went into play-fight mode and took a pass at her arm. Lauren struck me as being experienced with dogs right from the start. In the beginning I had mentioned that our Aussie was an escape artist, and later when I was showing Lauren around the house she was closing doors behind her without my having to ask her. She also has experience with herding dogs, so made us feel better about unleashing Mac on her for the weekend. We will definitely look for Lauren's availability the next time we go out of town. Thank you Lauren!

Lauren is very sweet and the dogs seemed to like her right away. We have 3 dogs that are attention seeking and they seemed well cared for. My only concern is that she really didn't keep us updated unless we texted her first, even though we told her we had free texting where we were staying. Other sitters have sent daily updates and pictures of the pets so I expected this. Also, she fed them several hours later than their usually dinner time on the last day but she did tell us and took care of it. I appreciated her honesty.

Lauren was great! She was very nice and responded in a timely manner if I asked how Henry was doing. She took really good care of him considering he has some special needs like how he can't use stairs and takes medicine etc. I felt very comfortable having her stay at my house and was worry free having her watch Henry. I will definitely use her again!

Lauren came to our house to dog sit our dogs while we went on a date night! She is was on time and kept us up-to-date on how our dogs were doing. I would definitely recommend Lauren for dog sitting!
Lauren came to our house to dog sit Buddy and our 10 week old puppy, Gus, for a couple of hours. She was great with our dogs and very reliable!
