About Lauren

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Lauren and I'm currently attending NYU to receive my MSW. I grew up with cats and dogs all my life and rescued a dog with my 2 best friends in college (she now lives with one of them in Chicago). Therefore, I have a lot of experience with dogs of all sizes and breeds.

I am available during the day to pet-sit, walk, and stay overnight with your animals. I love cats and offer cat sitting as well. I’m happy to visit your kitty while you’re away.

I am reliable, responsible, and loving. I am also a non-smoker and have a pretty flexible schedule since I am not working. Since my apartment is too small for any animals, DogVacay gives me a chance to spend time with pups while making some extra money.

I am a huge animal lover and love to be around animals all the time. I've had dogs since I was a child and am 110% ok with any breed and size! A typical day with your animal and I would be playing, snuggling/cuddling, feeding him or her, and taking them for long, super fun walks/exploring new neighborhoods and dog parks. I am excited to get to know your animals :)

Please note that I only offer pet-sitting in the client's home instead of boarding in my own home. Your animal will be my number one priority, and I look forward to spending time with him or her!

Holiday Rate: For Thankgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Eve and Day there will be a rate of $75 a night if your stay overlaps with any of these dates. Thank you in advance.

$25 will be added for each animal.

My schedule is as followed. Please be advised:

M/W/F I have my internship from 9:30am-5:30pm so I will be able to provide your dogs walks before and after work.

T/T/S/S: I will be free pretty much all day, only have a few classes

I am SO happy I found Lauren. I had a last minute request to watch my pup and kitty for 5 nights and she was able to do it. Hands down the best sitter I've had for either of my furbabies and I've had my pup almost 7 years. She sent me daily updates, photos and videos and kept my apartment so tidy and clean. It felt really good coming home to a clean house and 2 happy as ever kiddos. I will definitely be using Lauren anytime I go away.
I've never left my dogs with a stranger before and was extremely stressed to do so while I went away on a short vacation. Lauren was great with keeping in contact and sending photo's. It was also nice to come home to a clean apartment, you'd never had known she was there. Will use her again for sure!
Lauren was excellent! She did exactly as asked, kept me apprised of how Baby was doing and even stayed past the agreed upon time. She is heading back to school and out of my area or else she would be my first choice as a sitter.
Lauren is awesome! First, she took the time to come out and meet our pup/us before hand which made us so much more comfortable. She reassured us that our pup was in good hands. He immediately took to her, which is not always the case. He can be a bit of a special needs case at times...

Laurel made him feel comfortable at all times, and made us feel comfortable by sending daily pictures and text messages. She also took good care of our home. She was great, and we will be using her again.

Your pup is in good hands with Lauren!
Lauren was very attentive to my dog while I was out of town. She sent pictures every day during their walks, which gave me piece of mind. Lauren stayed at my apartment and when I returned from my trip, the place was tidy and organized. It was such a relief to come home to that, and a very happy dog. I will definitely be utilizing Lauren's dog services in the future.
Lauren was a life saver! I had little time to set up a last minute "vacay" and she couldn't have been nicer or easier to work with. She was actually away on her own vacation while I was setting up the reservation but kept in touch via email to answer all my questions. I was so relieved to be able to leave Carmella in such good hands. I will definitely use Lauren again.
Lauren was great and took excellent care of my pup. She was prompt and responsive to any questions or needs I had while I was traveling overseas. She also sent daily updates to let me know how Chance was doing. I highly recommend and will be using her often for future stays.
