About Lauren

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm Lauren, I'm 30 years old and I have a lifetime of experience caring for a wide variety of pets from fish and reptiles to dogs and cats. I also have TEN years of professional experience managing busy doggy day camp and boarding facilities. My kennel responsibilities included monitoring up to 30 dogs in a group during play times, evaluating new dogs for compatibility with the play group (just like a meet and greet), feeding and medications. I am certified in pet first aid and have years of experience treating minor cuts and scrapes received in group play as well as spotting potential health problems (IE; noticing an allergy or sensitivity to certain foods/treats). A typical day in my home includes cuddles before and after every meal, unlimited potty breaks and play times in my large, fenced yard, and full access to all the comfy FURniture! My family dogs have been highly socialized from puppyhood and provide excellent companionship to my guests. Pets are my passion and I know, as a pet-parent, how important it is to have a sitter you can trust and feel comfortable with. I can offer you the highest quality of professional care in a loving home environment instead of a cold concrete kennel! If you're still not sure, I can provide you with some excellent references from satisfied visitors!

Guests with food aggression (or by request) will be fed in large crates which can be provided by me or brought from home.

Nail trimming can be done for an additional $12.


I work mostly from home now so I'm always available for cuddles with your pet but on the odd occasion I need to run out I will use my best judgement (and your input) to determine whether guests are allowed to have free run of my home or should be crated/separated from other guests or my family dogs.

-All guests will provide proof of current vaccinations (Rabies, Distemper, Bordetella) prior to the Meet and Greet.
-Guests must be FULLY housebroken. .
-A Meet-and-greet will be required at least 24 hours prior to boarding.

All I can say is Lauren is the best. Very friendly and sweet. I've never left any of my babies anywhere before but this time I wanted to try. Lauren was very attentive to his needs and very caring. I would not hesitate to leave him with her again. It was very hard to try and trust someone with my little man. Lauren sent pictures every day or a video which makes you feel comfortable enough to relax and enjoy your vacation or time away from your little love. I will definitely ask Lauren to watch my boy again!!! Thank you!!

Riley stayed with Lauren for 10 days for our trip to Italy and we couldn't be happier. After meeting her and her dogs, we were immediately comfortable knowing Riley would be just fine. We were able to go online and see pictures and videos of Riley playing. We love that she had so many other dogs to keep her busy and to give each other attention. Knowing that she is staying with a family of people who love dogs is comforting. We will DEFINITLY use Lauren again!

Lauren is a true professional. She stayed with Lola for eight days and she came back happy and full of energy. I will be using Lauren for all future boarding. Thanks again!
Lauren was great with our two dogs, Wally and Jeremy. They were safe and well taken care of. She posted photos every day on Facebook so that we could see how they were doing. Our boys were clearly very happy staying with her and they got to play with other dogs and were able to socialize. Lauren loves what she is doing with her canine guests and it definitely shows. She really cares about them and makes them a part of her family.We will definitely use her again to take care of our guys

Our Newfie puppy is 3 month old and never stayed with other dogs before. Lauren seamed so confident and knowledgable that we were sure our baby would be just all right. Puppy stayed with her 2 times for 5 hours. We are going to come back to ask for Lauren's help again some time.

Lauren was wonderful with our 3 dogs. She was flexible, and took our dogs in at the last minute. She kept us up to date and sent us pictures. They had a great time. I would definitely trust lauren with our dogs again.
Lauren was the perfect dog sitter for us! She's very easy to contact and always got back to us promptly whenever we had questions. And while on vacation, we were excited to check online whenever we could for the daily pictures she posted. It truly felt like our pup was in great care, and that he had a wonderful time with Lauren and her other dogs. I would definitely recommend her services! Thanks again!

Lauren is excellent dog sitter.
Lauren was awesome with our 18 month old male Lab Logan. His very first day at daycare, interacting with other dogs for the first time off lead was a great experience for him. I feel very comfortable knowing Logan is interacting and learning proper "doggie manners" under Lauren's supervision and well experienced guidance. Looking forward to another visit soon!! Thanks again Lauren!!

Thanks Lauren and Andy for taking care of Ony she had an awesome time with you and your dogs. We really enjoyed looking at your Facebook page with the regular photo updates! Graham
Lauren is the best. She's a natural when it comes dogs. We instantly felt comfortable leaving our dog with her. We've used her 4 or 5 times and plan on using her again and again!
Lauren has been fantastic with Simba. All her resident dogs got along great with Simba. Simba loved every minute of his stay and returned happy and energized. Would definitely recommend her to anyone in need for a home for their pet when they are away..

We were apprehensive about leaving our 2yr old
Portuguese Water Dog for 16 days since we had never been away from him that long and with a new sitter. Lauren cared for Mac as if he was her own and we returned to find a very happy dog.
He had a lot of fun playing with her dogs and
made some good buddies.
We will definitely be using Lauren's K9 Home
again and I'm sure Mac can't wait to return.
