About Lori

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I invite you to experience the 'Pawzitive Fx' of my personalized TLC for your SMALL and MEDIUM dogs at a safe and interactive doggie daycare or boarding in my home. along with my beagles.

I've been providing pet care service for over 25 years and I delight in providing a safe, fun, social, healthy and pawzitive home environment for your dog in your absence.

**2016 Price Increases**

Daycare for First-Time Guests from out-of-town (unable to do a Meet & Greet) = $25/day
Boarding for First-Time Guests from out-of-town (unable to do a Meet & Greet) = $35/night
Boarding: Friday and Saturday Nights price/dog = $35 (2nd & 3rd dogs $25)
Daycare: On Saturday: = $25/day/dog (2nd & 3rd dogs $20)
Holidays: + $15/dog (boarding and daycare)

For dogs kept in our home, they daily receive 6 – 8 supervised yard playtimes/potty breaks. 2 - 20 minute walk/jog in our neighborhood or possibly in the park, plenty of in-house or lanai relaxation as well as tummy scratches & TLC.

Trips to the nearby dog park (4 mi) may possibly take place, however for an additional fee, you may add this event as part of your dog's daily activity.

Dogs sleep in their own beds in our bedroom or curled up on the ottoman or armchair when that better suits them. If your dog is more comfortable sleeping in a crate, then please bring it with you. If your dogs sleeps with you and will not accept any alternate arrangement, then our home set up is not the place for your dog.

Our owned smoke-free and child-free home is located on a picturesque pond and the medium-sized yard with a 4' fence, faces the pond. The lanai has a dog door for small and medium dogs, providing easy access to the yard.
Inside, our home is open, spacious and comfortable, where dogs can relax or play at their leisure.

We have gates to separate rooms where compatible dogs can congregate together. Every guest's wellness and safety, as well as our own K9's is our utmost concern.

Bailey Beagle is my 9.5 yr old friendly-host who greets and welcomes each guest with gusto! We also are a foster home for SouthEast Beagle Rescue so frequently have an additional beagle with us.

Respectfully, I do not accommodate in my home the following breeds/mixes: German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Doberman, Bully Breeds or Huskies of any age or size.

Unless you are from out of town or state, I like to schedule a meet & greet with you so I can see how your dogs interact with us and our beagles in our home and for you to assess us to determine if we are the best fit. I also may require your dog to stay for a half-day, full day or overnight to assess their suitability. All regular service fees apply.

If your dog has special needs or you desire specialized care (ie: more pampering, extra walks, dog park visits, exclusive boarding etc), then I will assess each dog and it's needs individually and provide you a custom price quote.

Puppies: after a meet & greet consultation, we will provide you a custom quote.

LARGE dogs: Sorry, we no longer accommodate large dogs of any breed in our home.

All dogs are required to be clean, healthy, on a parasite, heartworm and flea prevention regimen, have mandatory (by Law) vaccination(s).

If your dog is incontinent, has anxiety or submission urination or marks (males), you must provide the necessary diapers/belly bands. If your dog is not potty trained, then we must decline to provide services, as we have light carpeting throughout the home.

If your dog requires medication or injections, they must be accustomed to receiving it and be cooperative while it is being administered.

All dogs must be comfortable with, friendly-to and non-aggressive with other dogs. If your dog(s) suffers from separation anxiety or will not settle down to sleep at night, whines, howls or barks for extended periods of time, alternate boarding arrangements may have to be made. Please make us aware of any fears, phobias or behaviors during our meet & greet.

*If your dog is raw fed or eats homemade meals, that is a specialty of mine* :)

I live half-way between Orlando and Tampa and 7 miles from LEGOLAND , so are in an ideal location for your small or medium dogs day or overnight needs. If you are nearby, you are welcome to visit during the day or take your dog out for a while.

**SUNDAY DAYCARE: Drop Off by 8:00 A.M. or at 12:00-1:00 P.M.
**SUNDAY PICKUP: 12:00 P.M. - 7:00 P.M.
**NO Pickups on Holidays
**HOLIDAY FEE: On major Holidays, there is an additional $15/dog/fee for boarding.

My dog had a great time, as evidenced by the photos and videos Lori sent during his stay.
They both had a great time. And I really appreciated the daily updates. We will be back! Sorry about all the piggybacking. Think it's just an alpha thing. :)
Lori C. was very flexible with vacation sitting my dogs. She loves dogs; that's obvious and is very accomodating to her dog owners. I know my dogs had a good time and they were well-cared for.
Great lady . She took very good care of smokey
Lori was amazing! Kept me updated the whole time, and I could tell my dog had a blast! I'm not from Winter Haven & had a bad experience w another Kennel in town. I was so happy to find her & I'll use her again. Thanks Lori! ??
Lori once again looked after our girls as we made another trip back to the UK. She was happy to administer medication to Molly and kept us updated with wonderful pictures and videos. I can't thank her or recommend her enough and I wouldn't even consider using anyone else to take care of our girls.

Lori did a nice job, and my kids seemed to be happy. I will use again.
We were very pleased. Lori spends a lot of time with the pets and is very caring. recommend Highly
Lori is a wonderful dog person and people person!
She sent us two emails during our short trip that had photos of our Molinka interacting with the other dogs or just chilling. We will definitely use her services in the future. Yard is fenced, screened lanai has doggie doors which our dog adapted to very quickly. House is dog friendly with the main area gated from their area; although sometimes Lori lets a dog come thru the gate to visit in the living room. I can't say enough good things about her!

Great Doggie place. Lori loves the all and we never worry even when out of touch. She sends pics or videos about twice a week so you never miss your pup for very long if you check in.

The cost is higher than we would like but its worth it to know Lori is there with our girl.

Just collected my dogs from Lori's upon returning from a weekend away. I am always worried about leaving my dogs with other people when I have to travel but this is the 2nd time that I have left them in the wonderful care of Lori as I know that she will treat them like her own and they will have lots of fun playing with the other small dogs that she cares for. I love that she posts pics of them on her Facebook page so that I can see how they are doing. I have already booked their 3rd stay and would have no hesitation in recommending Lori to anyone who may need her services.

When looking for day care for our little girl, Bitsy, we went to a few different locations before finding Lori. We felt Lori's love for dogs the moment we met her. She opened her home to us and let us get an idea of what Bitsy's day would look like. Lori not only put our mind at ease by the way she welcomed us, but her periodic texts with pictures and videos of our little girl makes our day so much better. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED doesn't say enough, but yes, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to watch their dog/family member!

Lori did an excellent job! We will definitely use her again if we are in the area.
I cannot say enough good things about Lori! We were first timers and with a puppy! I felt completely at ease and knew the pups were having fun and safe. I couldn't ask for anything more! Just absolutely wonderful all the way around!
Excellent care for your pet, I never worry when Piper is with Lori!
Lori was great with my little Bella. It was hard to leave her so little and I was looking for an alternative to a kennel. This was a great choice!! She kept in contact with my during the entire stay with lots of pics and videos. She has a warm heart and took great care of Bella! I would recommend her and will book with her in the future!

This was my little dog Raleigh's first DogVacay experience and it could not have been better! I had to leave him with a sitter for several days when I traveled. He was comfortable from the first moment he met Lori C. and the other pooches in her charge. She is a warm and friendly human and she sends regular updates and photos via text message for her customer's peace of mind. It was a stellar experience and I highly recommend Lori as a trusted caregiver for your beloved pup.

My dog Archer was clearly happy during his five day stay. The daily photos or video were nice and showed that Lori knows how to let dogs socialize. I live 30 minutes away in Lakeland, but I will gladly make the long drive for someone I trust now rather than try someone closer because of the comfort level I have leaving my dog with Lori.

We went for the weekend to Legoland and our lovely Peter stayed with Lori during the day on Saturday and Sunday. He had a great time and the next day he went back to Lori's home happy and excited. She took good care of him and also sent us pictures while we were on the park with the family. We had a peace of mind that he was on good hands and let us have fun as well while we celebrate our son's birthday. We highly recommend Lori.

Lori is the best. Our dog Sophie loves going to stay with her. She gets excellent care!!!!!!!
Lori was fantastic with our fur child! Our puppy was so comfortable with Lori. She is excellent with our dog! We will absolutely use Lori again!! You cannot go wrong with her!! We left our dog for a month with Lori and we would do it again,Lori is that good!! Thank you Lori and Dog vacate!!! Dale & Penny

My little Pipers stay over with Lori was wonderful! I did not worry at all about my little pup! I had daily videos sent and Piper was having a blast! So grateful for Lori's exceptional care! Recommend her highly!!!!
What a great day Flash had with his new friends and Ms. Lori! We cannot wait to bring him back to play as we know he had a blast. It is such a relief to know we have a loving home to place him in while we go to Legoland! Our annual passes may have gone to waste if we hadn't found a place so great to drop our little man off at to play while we do the same at the park! Being able to text back and forth with Lori was very comforting and the photo updates, WOW, icing on the cake!

Lori is very kind, great with dogs. She kept us informed all the time on our dog stay We definitely recommend and use her service again Thank you very much Lori
Lori was fantastic! We contacted her on really short notice and she was more than willing to work us in. We will definitely have her watch our pooch next time we are in town.
Very friendly and a great experience, for our first time
Lori watched my 5 lb. long-haired Chihuahua. She was great with him and kept me updated each day as to how he was doing. We had just moved to the area so it was a blessing to find someone so excellent to watch our little guy.
We are very particular about who watches our two babies. (Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Calvin and Gia) I'm happy to say our experience with Lori has been absolutely wonderful! It's obvious from the first meeting that she loves dogs and is very knowledgeable about their care. We are looking forward to being clients for many more "vacays". Thank you so much, Lori!

Very pleased with the service provided by DogVacay. We have used Lori several times and she always provides excellent care. Our girls are well cared for we never have to worry about the girls when we are away.
About Lori,
This was the second time our dogs vayca'd with Lori..As in the past our pets were happy and well taken care of while in Lori's care.
We will definitely have Lori watch our pets again.
Lori has a love for pets, you can tell that because the love is in here expressions and words. I do not have any doubts about letting our pets stay again.

Thank you for taking care of Oscar. He seemed very happy when we came to pick him up. We could tell you love dogs. THANKS AGAIN
Once again, Lori has been wonderful with Heidi. Heidi has been a guest in Lori's home several times in the past, and once again, she thoroughly enjoyed her time there. Heidi is an "only" dog and loves her routine. Taking her somewhere else, submitting her to a different set of rules, not to mention other dogs, could be trying on her. Somehow, each and every time she stays with Lori, Lori works her magic and Heidi comes home as happy as when she left.

Thank you, Lori, for another great experience. See you in October, if not before!

Lori took care of my babies for Thanksgiving week and we could not be happier with our choice. She gave them lots of TLC and the daily videos were perfect. The experience was more like leaving them with a friend or relative and far better than a kennel. It's obvious she loves dogs and her job. I wouldn't hesitate to leave my little ones with her again. Thanks Lori and Dogvacay!

Lori is always very kind, sincere and genuine when caring for our dogs. Our girls have stayed at Lori's several times and they always get excellent care. We have never been disappointed. Lori frequently sends pictures, and videos while she is caring for the girls. We never have to worry about the girls when we're away as they always get great care with Lori.

Very reliable as always. Troy had a great time. We appreciate the photo updates. Thank you very much! 5 stars!
Lori was a great host for our dogs Mac and Maddy. She sent pictures to us daily of them playing and having a good doggie vacay!. I would recommend Lori to all. Linda J.
Lori was incredibly east to work with and conscientious of our needs (and our dog's!). She has dog boarding down to a science and separates the dogs in to different sections of her home based on temperament. We loved that our dog got so much individualized care, and he seemed pretty happy, too! He honestly didn't want to leave. Looking forward to next time!

Truly having found Lori on such short notice when the need was unexpected in the first place was a Godsend. As soon as I had messaged her she responded and reassured me to the point I truly had no qualms at all asking very detailed questions on how she would need to care for my 2 pups one of which is geriatric and needs special tender loving care. I had never used dog vacation before but if all of the folks who keep your beloved pets are like Lori you need never be concerned while you are away from I them. I kept in communication with Lori throughout the day and she promptly responded. Thank you Lori for being so loving and caring and detailed. Your home is inviting, very clean, very comforting, and the love you show the pets is very evident. God bless you with all your dreams come true!
Sincerely
Wendy

Lizzie (Queen of the Universe and corgi extraordinaire) had a pawsitively awesome time staying with Lori and her friends. Mom and Dad got to see pictures of me having all sorts of fun sniffing, playing, and roaming around like the fun loving pup I am. Most of all, they were grateful knowing I was being well taken care of while they were our of the country. I give my vacation at Lori's house four paws out of four!

It was such a blessing to find Lori! I needed someone to take care of my baby Sam and didn't have a clue who to turn to!! I'm a travel nurse and live in Florida and ALL of my family live out of state. Haven't been in town long enough to know any one well enough to feel comfortable with taking care of him over night. After praying for the right answer I got online and found her!
I never heard of Dog Vacay before but I will never forget them because of Lori!! I knew when I went for our meet and greet that she was, indeed, an answer to my prayers! Sammy stayed with her for 1 1/2 days and things couldn't have gone better. Lori kept in touch with me via text message and sent photos periodically so I could see for myself how Sammy was doing. He always appeared like he was doling fabulously and it made me feel good knowing he was in the care of such a thoughtful and caring person. When I picked him up he was in such good spirits and I could tell right away he was comfortable in her home. Other experiences with day care had not left him in that mood! They weren't good experiences. She was lovely, personable and most of all treated my precious Sammy with love. She comes HIGHLY recommended!

This is our third or fourth experience with Lori and, as always, it was great! Heidi loved her time with Lori.
Our senior Poodle, Andy, received great care from Lori while we were in Winter Haven on vacation to go to Legoland. He spent 2 days of daycare with Lori while our family went to the park. He has some separation anxiety when staying away from home and Lori knew just how to make him comfortable enough to relax and settle in to enjoy his time with her each day. Andy was calm and happy when I picked him up each day! I will definitely use Lori again anytime we come to this area to vacation. She is considerate and knowledgable and I highly recommend her services.

Lori is always accommodating and takes great care of Max! I don't know what I would do without her! Patrick
Lori took great care of my Dulce for the day. She was flexible with the drop off and pick up times. Also responded promptly to my messages. When I arrived back in the evening, she was already waiting for me outside. Highly recommend!
I absolutely love Lori! With such a loving demeanor and a genuine heart for fur-babies, I feel absolute confidence and peace when I leave my pomeranian in her care. Our trip to Jamaica was all the more enjoyable knowing our pet was in good hands!
​Lori was excellent! it is our first experience in Florida with our dog. We just moved from Spain and we were afraid about the queen of the house (Tura), but with Lori experience it was easy. Tura enjoyed her day and we highlight recommended her. Thanks Lori!

Mikey has always been nervous in new surroundings but was comfortable with Lori from the very first. He even was calm in the car on the way home! (hardly ever is). Lori is a magician with dogs! I would have Mikey go there anytime!
This was not only a positive experience but truely a relief because I have always been nervous about leaving him.

Excellent host, my pups had a wonderful time and I had no worries. The updates were great...we will be using Lori again!
She is the best one. My girls love her!!! The care they get is fabulous!!!
My dogs love going to Lori's. She is so good with my girls. I can't ask for a better sitter!!! I have 3 girls and they listen to her, so well.
We are new to the area and do not know a lot of people. My Pom is 14 years old and has some special needs. I was a little apprehensive to leave her with a stranger. We first met with Lori for a meet and greet and I knew right away that my dog with be comfortable and well taken care of. My dog made herself at home immediately and enjoyed the company of the other dogs. It has been a real relief to be able to enjoy an occasional time away and not worry about my special pet.
Read More...
Lori was extremely professional with us, from arranging the first meet, to a short stay without us present to the reception of our pets in her home.
You must know that she does this for the dogs, as it can be seen she loves them.
Lori was simply outstanding with all aspects of our pets stay at her lovely home.

Lori has walked Max on several occassions in the past but this was the first time he was left in her care over night. I can't begin to describe what a relief it is to find someone that cares for my pet like I do. We did a brief meet and greet prior to our reserved dates to let Max get familiar with the surroundings. Lori is great to provide updates and text messages with pictures during the stay to relieve any worry you might have. I can't recommend her enough!

I can't say enough about Lori. This was Lucy's second stay, about a year later. As soon as we pulled into the neighborhood She leaped from the back seat and pushed my wife out of the way, to shove her nose in to the air vent all the was to Lori's house. After that we went for a quick walk(mostly because I have trouble letting go). Immediately after doing her business Lucy about-faced and b lined towards the house. I tried to unload her stuff from the car but she had fully extended her lead, and had to let her inside before getting her stuff out. If we ever go to south FL again this will be Lucy's home away from home.
Read More...
Lori was amazing! From the moment we met her, I knew she would take great care of my Lucy. I had adopted her from the Humane Society and she is very picky as to who she likes. Well, she went right up to Lori and to Lori's beagle without a problem. Lori sent me pictures several times a day to keep me updated on Lucy. She slept the entire day after I picked her up! You will not find a better person to love on your pet while you are gone!!! I want to plan another get-a-way just so Lucy can have a fun time with Lori!

Lori was able to ease our mind about leaving our 1 year old dog for the first time, for more than 1 week. Our puppy is a high energy dog that is spoiled rotten at home, and we were able to enjoy our time away knowing that he was getting the attention we believe he deserves. She had all the requirements we were looking for, and was able to give us many updates throughout our vacation, including photos & videos. We would gladly use her services again, if she would have Cane!
Read More...
Lori was inviting and a perfect fit for our little girl. It was the first time leaving her with any one, and things couldn't have gone better. The picture updates were awesome showing that she was having as much fun, if not more then we were!!!
Lori was a perfect fit for our fur baby. We did a meet & greet & then had our pup stay over for a half day before we left him with Lori for the following entire week. We had never left our pup with anyone else before & we felt completely comfortable with leaving him there. I'd definitely use Lori again if we ever need a dog sitter. It seems as if our dog would highly agree too, because he had a blast! Thanks again Lori!
Read More...
Lori is always wonderful. This was Nash's first stay with a sitter. So glad Lori was willing to give our crazy pup a chance. She knows dogs and is so relaxed even though I'm sure it was chaotic. Thank you Lori!!!
Chance stayed for 12 days at Loris home and we were satisfied with her. She performed well under difficult decisions. We recommend her.
Our puppies were treated royally, and are now spoiled even more than they were before we left them. Lori is an obvious dog lover and I felt completely at ease leaving them for such a long time. It was apparent that Lori knows how to handle every type of dog personality. I will definitely leave Snickers and Tinkerbell there again.

She is an awesome pet sitter!! My two girls enjoyed their day with her. She even invited them to come back. I will definitely use her again! Thank you Lori for taking such good care of my girls. They can be a handful. Thanks again!!! Laura
Lori provided EXCELLENT care for our two dachshunds. They had a wonderful time.

From our first meeting with Lori we were very pleased. She provided use with a form to complete that highlighted our girls daily routine and tried to minimize the stress on them by not upsetting their schedule.

During our entire 13 days away Lori regularly sent photos and updates on how well the girls were doing.

The girls enjoyed their playtime with Bailey, Lori's beagle, and all the individual lap time from Lori and Bob.

When we picked up the girls they were very relaxed and not the least bit stressed from the time at Lori's.

Lori is very accommodating, and provided EXCEPTIONAL care of our dogs.

We will definitely bring the girls to Lori any time we need to leave town.

A very warm and friendly home. My dog was well cared-for and had a great time with the family and the other dogs.
Lori is a kind and loving pet sitter. She has a fenced yard that our dogs love and they are never upset to go visit.
Lori and her husband were great hosts and took excellent care of our puppy. This was a last minute arrangement and Playful does not fit the profile of their typical guest. However I decided to chance it after reading between the lines of their description. We were willing to pull him out if it was not going to be a good fit for him but that was not necessary as it was clear very quickly that she is a dog whisperer! I think this arrangement worked because Lori was very clear in her questions and expectations and I think I was equally clear in my answers and expectations. If we visit this area again there is no doubt I would ask her if she was available. I really appreciated the update in the middle of the day.

Lori was such a great caretaker, she played so much with my pup and took so many pictures (and made awesome videos I could see on youtube too)! It was such a great feeling to know that my dog was having fun and being loved. Her dog Baily, made a wonderful host and friend to my dog. I definitely would recommend Lori and Bailey for all your dog-sitting needs.

Check out the video on how awesome my dog's stay was... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHXBb2WLDm0

Lori was awesome. Our dogs did not want to come home. They are running around our house looking for Bailey! Thanks, Lori, for easing our minds and making sure the "girls" were enjoying our vacation as well.
When I needed a quality dog sitting service for our pedigree Border Collie, who is breed to run 40 miles a day to herd sheep. I knew we needed a quality sanctuary and attentive play time for my boy.

Troy was given a fun and warm retreat. I haven't seen him smile and look so happy this much, in a long time.

You all provided a wonderful service for our loving dog. Five star service at a competitive price.

Personally recommend.

Thank you,
Jon White

Lori is WONDERFUL! We met her last minute when another dog sitter didn't work out. Our dog became ill while Lori was watching her and Lori took incredible care of her. She gave us frequent updates and posted pictures and videos so we could see how our dog was doing. Very caring and really enjoys animals. We highly recommend Lori.

Lori watched our Scottish Terrier, Cavendish while we took our niece to LegoLand for the day. We dropped her off in the morning and picked her up later in the day. Lori was very accomodating and took EXCELLENT care of our baby. We received several texts about Cavendish throughout the day which helped to minimize our anxiety about leaving her. I think Cavendish had more that day then we did. We highly recommend Lori and her doggie services!!!!!

Lori is a fantastic pet sitter! I rarely (and I mean rarely) will leave my two toy poodles with anyone other than immediate family especially since one of girls is 16 years old. However once I met Lori, her husband Bob, their beagle Bailey, and toured her home, I knew right away that this would be a safe, comfortable, and loving place for my dogs to stay. Lori and her home glow with the warmth of a dog friendly environment.Her home is clean, spacious and has a large fenced backyard area for the doggies to play. From her frequent text, email, and pictures, I was secure with the knowledge that my pets were being well taken care of.

Would I leave my pets with her again? ABSOLUTELY!

Do I plan to leave my pets with her again? POSITIVELY!

Thank you Lori, Bob, and Bailey for a stress free vacation.

Great experience !
Beyond expectations!
I used Pawzitve FX dogsitting services during a week I was out of state on family businesss and didn't have anyone to care for my 6 month old puppy. I was very pleased !
My puppy Gypsy was well cared for and had a great time .The personal attention was excellent. I worry about my dogs all the time when I leave them, but in Lori's hands , I was not worried about my doggie. Lori is extremely professional and organized. You can tell Lori loves animals and treats the dogs in her charge with great care and attention to detail and lots of love. As long as Lori is around , I will always
use her PAWZITVE FX services when I need doggie sitting or walking for any of my three dogs.

Lori is THE BEST! I hesitate to say what I really think because she may become too popular, and there may not be room the next time I need to take my pups in. She's compassionate, loving, sensitive and generous with her time. I'm surprised my Bailey wanted to come back home! I would highly recommend Lori to those who are looking for a caring environment for their pooch. She gave us peace of mind - priceless! Five paws, all the way!

My 8 year old Shih Tzu, Mickey spent 4 days on "vacation" with Lori at her home from June 30th-July 3rd. He loved his time with Lori, her husband and their beagle, Bailey. Lori's home is set up well for pet sitting with lots of space both indoors and out for play or just relaxing. Lori asked all the right questions about Mickey's daily routine so she could keep him on his regular schedule. She provided several walks each day and trips to the park for Mickey and her other canine guests, which they all loved! She even cuddled with Mickey during the frequent rain storms, which always freak him out and make him shake uncontrollably. I received at least a text message and email each day from Lori with pictures and video of Mickey enjoying his playtime with his new friends. It was a joy to receive all the pictures along with updates on how he was doing, and to know that my boy was happy and well cared for. Lori's "hotel" was a perfect substitute for "home" and will be Mickey's vacation spot from now on when mom goes on her own future vacations. Thanks Lori...you're the best!

Lori was great! It was the first time my husband and I had left our 4 month old chocolate lab and we were nervous but as soon as we met her we could tell Bella was in good hands. While we were gone she sent us pictures and updates to let us know how Bella was doing. She enjoyed her vacay for sure! I would definitely recommend Lori and if we ever need someone to watch Bella, she is the one we're going to call! =)
