About Lauren

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***K9Home is thrilled to announce that we are expecting a new (human) addition in June 2017 so please be aware that starting at the end of May, all pets MUST be baby/child friendly.

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.
-Guests must be baby/child friendly.
-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. 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 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!
