About Laurie

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dog deserves to be as pampered on his vacation as you are on yours! Before your first stay we will schedule a meet and greet so you and your pet can become familiar with our set up and so I can do a temperament test. Part of that test includes meeting the resident cats. They don't have to love cats but they have to leave the cats alone. If you know your dog would love to snack on kitties if given the opportunity, this is not the place for him. Thanks for understanding!

Amenities include securely fenced yard and in ground pool. Dogs have regular play times and are always supervised when outside. In nice weather we spend the entire day in the backyard. Large indoor playroom available for inclement weather. With over three decades of professional animal care, I am able to carry out your vet's orders whether it be oral medications, injections or even fluids. There is NEVER an extra charge for medicating! Fully insured for your pet's protection. Basic obedience is included at no extra charge as is bathing if necessary.

We received daily photos/videos/updates about our babies which was wonderful. Laurie was wonderful!
It was nice to see that our lab mix, Buddy, was happy & content by the pictures & videos that Laurie sent while we were away.
This was the first time that we used DogVacay so we were a little apprehensive but we found the whole process to be very easy. We chose Laurie because of the great reviews that she had received. My husband and I totally enjoyed our vacation and did not worry about Brody at all. We loved getting the pics and videos from Laurie. She also gave us some much needed training tips. Not only will we use Laurie as our dog sitter again, but I highly recommendher!

Excellent! Laurie is very sweet and I can tell that she really loves animals and cares for the pets she brings into her home. She has a big yard with plenty of room for all the doggies to play around. She sent me a video of my dog running around with the other guys which was nice to see. I will definitely use Laurie again in the future.

Gus had a wonderful time with Laurie. Laurie was very attentive to Gus' needs and watched my bulldog puppy, who swims like a rock, very closely. This is the first time boarding with Laurie and the first time Gus has come home from boarding stress free. Thank you Laurie!!!

We took Polly to Laurie when our regular host was not available. Polly was comfortable from the first meeting. The daily pictures were much appreciated while we were on our trip. It was clear that Polly was right at home at Laurie's house. I'm sure we will be back again.

Excellent overnight stay with Laurie. We visited multiple locations and decided Laurie was the right fit for Brutus. He is high energy and demands a lot of attention. Laurie took great care of him. He came home exhausted from playing with her. Her lifetime of caring for animals (horses and dogs) gives her a great understanding of how to handle and care for dogs. She also gave us advice about proper nutrition and feeding. We are first time dog owners and welcome her advice and suggestions.

Our two dogs were having a great time in the photos she posted. They were very happy and had excellent care. They were not stressed at all. We will be sending them to Laurie's retreat again.
Laurie is very professional and our dogs obeyed her. She is gentle and loving.

Laurie provided exceptional care for our Buddy (Collie), and made him one of their family. The updates she provided to us during his stay were comforting to my wife and me. We would not hesitate to have Buddy stay with her again. Thank you so much.
