About Lori

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Lori M. and everyone in our family is a huge animal lover! We've had labs the last few years, but in general I've lived with dogs all my life as has my husband and son, Jackson.

Our family works with a rescue foundation locally (XOXO Pet Rescue) and have fostered MANY dogs, including puppies, dogs with medical issues, older dogs, and every size from Yorkies to Pits to German Sheperds.

Our lab Charlie is 4 years old and has the perfect temperament for other dogs - he's completely laid back and has never had an issue with a dog, male or female, large or small. We have lots of pictures with fosters and Charlie so if you ever want to see in advance how he interacts with other dogs, we'd be happy to send over pictures!

I work from home full time so being able to care for your dogs under my watch is easy to do throughout the day. I typically feed the dogs, let them play outside, they come in and relax until my lunchtime and then I either play with them outside or take them for a walk, as applicable. We have a fully fenced yard and lots of room both inside and out for your pets to feel welcome and most of all loved!!

I like to take pictures when I dog sit for friends and I would do this for you too, so you could see how your baby is doing and know he's in good hands. If you want him to be bathed before you return so he's fresh and happy when you arrive, I have that service as well.

Just know we love our furry residents as if they're our own, and for me that is a big reason to choose someone you know you'll feel perfectly comfortable leaving your pet with.

Lori and her family are amazing!! The fur kids always have a great time with them! They practically don't even say bye to me! We get there and they're running up to the house- they give two paws up and so do we!
Look no further, Lori the dog whisperer is it! Lori's warm, welcoming demeanor was apparent during our meet & greet with her and her lab, Charlie. The boys got along great & Tyler was immediately drawn to her. Lori was flexible and accommodating w/drop off and pick up times. She sent wonderful photos during the visit as well. Just an all around great experience! Highly recommend and will use for future bookings. Thanks, Lori! If you are looking for a sitter, don't even hesitate to book her!
Lori is amazing! We missed our Jax terribly but knew he was in a great home. Received several pictures and updates daily. If you want your fur baby to be taken care of, loved, and treated like you would this is the perfect home!
Lori was great! She made me feel at ease about leaving my baby. She sent me pictures and an update every morning and a couple during the day. She is great at understanding dog personalities and their needs. Will be using her in the future!
What can I say beyond Lori being the ABSOLUTE BEST DOG-SITTER IN THE WORLD!!! Our puppy “Baymax” enjoyed her stay so much with Lori that she cried for a while after picking her up. Lori provided updated photos of Baymax enjoying her stay throughout the weekend. Lori, her family, and their pet Charlie all TOTALLY ROCK!!! Will certainly specifically request Lori services on future boarding.
Dropped off my pup in the morning and got a mid-day update. Picked her up after work and she was a happy pup. Lori treated our girl as if she was her dog and I couldn't ask for anything more.
Lori took excellent care of our dog. He was one happy dog when I picked him up after 2 weeks. She sent us pictures & videos of our little boy every day. Her place has a nice big backyard for dogs to run around. I highly recommend her to look after your pet. She is a lovely person and will definitely use her services again. Thanks for everything, Lori!
We left our two labs with Lori while we toured the Williamsburg area. She was awesome! She sent us pictures and videos each day. She was willing to work around our schedule. The dogs had a great time and slept for days after we got home. She has a nice, big backyard for playtime. She is close to I-64 for those traveling. It was our first DogVacy experience and she was terrific. Thanks, Lori!
Lori and her family were awesome! Our high energy GSP felt right at home! I highly recommend Lori as a wonderful home away from home for your pet.
Wonderful sitter. Nice area, very pleasant and worked around my schedule. Will use her again.
Lori is awesome. Will definitely use her again in the future!!!
Lori is awesome! We love her. She is so accommodating to our schedules. Both my husband and I work so she helps us out by taking my pup for daycare a few days out of the week. Raider absolutely loves her and her husband.
Simply fantastic with taking care of our four legged family member! Lori sent update texts (with pictures) almost every day. It was so comforting to our family knowing our pet was being loved while we were away. I recommend with the highest possible emphasis.
