About Laurie

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We began opening our home to our friends and family's dogs after we had to say goodbye to our dog Daisy. We needed time to mourn her loss but we still wanted dogs in our home.

I realized that as a pet owner it is so hard to find a dog sitter who would truly love having my dog in their home. This prompted me to provide pet sitting to my friends and family. Having their pets stay with us helped us during our grief period.

After 2 years we adopted Fonzie (foster fail) but always felt bad about leaving him behind when we traveled. When we drove to the Florida area we took Fonzie with us. We had the opportunity to use Dog Vacay twice (once for a 5 day period). We had such a great experience knowing that Fonzie, with all his quirks, was welcomed and loved while we were away. This inspired us to offer the same to you who will be traveling to Winnipeg or locals who would like to go on vacation and not worry about their beloved pets they leave behind.

We have been doing this for 2 years now and I cannot believe the joy that these furry guests have brought to our home. We love them as our own and it is so wonderful to see their personalities emerge throughout their stay.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Sorry puppies under 1 yr are not a good fit with our Fonzie. Puppies between 1 - 2 yrs $5.00 extra per day or night.

Please enquire about dogs who exceed our weight limit. We may be able to accommodate you.

We also offer occasional daycare. Please enquire as we aim to please you.

I’ve known Laurie for many years & know her to be a true dog lover.  She welcomes dogs into her home with open arms & gives them all her love & attention as if they were her own.
Laurie is compassionate & supports many local dog rescue groups.  Even on vacation herself in different cities or even countries, she will volunteer at dog pounds or rescue facilities.
If you’re looking for someone to care for your pet while you’re away,  rest assured that they will be well cared for with Laurie K.

It was our first time using Dogvacay. After meeting Laurie who was very friendly and welcoming I felt more than comfortable leaving our dog Moby with her for the weekend. The weekend went wel, no concerns. She kept me updated and it was easy to communicate. The pictures she sent of Moby were adorable. I truly believe Moby enjoyed his stay. Will be using her service in the future! I highly recommend.

Thanks Laurie!
Our little chihuahua ChiChi was neglected for the first three years of life and has been very nervous of anything new. She doesn't make friends easily but Laurie won her over in no time. We really appreciated seeing how she cuddled up to both Laurie and Herb.
It was a great relief to know that ChiChi was loved and well taken care of when we were gone.
Thanks again,
Dale and Barry

The whole process from start to finish was just A one. We knew right away that we had met the right people to look after our pets while we were away! Daily messages and pictures were sent to us that we in turn shared with most of the people that travelled with us. It was so comforting to know that all was OK. Lady and Yoshi both also knew immediately that Laurie was someone special and were at ease in her home. This made our vacation so much more enjoyable, knowing that they and Fonzi were having fun! There could not have been anywhere better for them to have their vacation.
