About Lou

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home, so I'm home all the time and can give your dog/dogs the love and special attention that they require. I am close to a very nice park, so I can walk them for an hour or less everyday.

I'm health conscious with the dogs and am close to multiple vets if needed. I follow the instructions of their owner to the letter. They are like my children :)

I have my one resident dog named Brandy, so that means that it would require a meet and greet at a neutral place like a park. At the moment I am only accepting dogs that are not temperamental and will not be agressive with my dog.

Lou took wonderful care of our dog Molly, in fact she feels and acts like she is right at home, when my husband dropped her off she went straight for the fenced in backyard. We always get pictures and text messages letting us know how she is doing. I can't say enough good about Lou, we always know Molly is in great hands.

Lou was very attentive, enthusiastic and caring for our lab. He texted us pictures and updates while we were away. We will certainly use him again.
Lou did a great job! Bailey was well taken care of and we were at ease with daily updates. Thanks Lou!

Lou is great, he put my worries to rest. Holly definitely enjoyed her stay there. Holly actually said thank you to Lou when we're picking her up, she walked back to him to say goodbye! That's a great assurance that my Holly really liked Lou!

I had never left my rescue dog before for longer than a few nights so I was concerned that my dog Sampson would feel sad and abandoned. At our meet and greet Lou tried to reassure me that all would be great and he was right! At first Sampson was shy with Lou and unsure but after a couple of days Sampson followed Lou everywhere and sat in his lap (he's about 50 pounds!) Lou was great about staying in touch with me via text every day by sending photos and updates of Sampson. They went on daily walks every day like promised and as the week progressed Sampson looked so comfortable and happy, as if Lou's home was his own. I'm so glad we found Lou so next time I can leave my dog with him without worry! Now when Sampson sees him at the park walking his own dog he gets so excited to see him, quite a change from the first time they met. Lou is a dog owners dream come true!

This was our first time using Dog Vacay. Lou put our concerns to rest and took excellent care of our 3 y/o golden, Riley. Lou was very flexible, sent me pics and updates daily of my dog and provided a loving, nurturing environment. He is a true pet lover and it shows. This was a great experience and we would use Lou again. I have already told several friends about him!! Thank you, Lou, for spoiling Riley and treating him like one of your own!!

Lou took great care of our dog. we got pictures and a text daily. he really cares about well being of the dogs he cares for. he answered all our communications in a timely manner.
Lou is always a great person for us to leave Andy with when we travel. Andy loves him.
Lou is fantastic! I have boarded my dog with him several times and will do so again in the future. He is thoughtful and sends updates about how my dog is doing and is flexible with when I drop him off/pick up. I am so grateful to have found Lou through DogVacay.

As usual Lou took great care of Asha and have already booked another stay. Thanks Lou!
Coco loves to keep coming back to Lou's care!
Bottom line: this is the best I could have hoped for in every respect. My fur baby & I both are very secure here
Lou and his dog Brandy took such wonderful care of my dog while I was away for almost three weeks.
Lou sent regular updates with pictures and even sent a photo of my dog taking his medication to reassure me!
Really a great pet sitter and safe pair of hands -- five stars!

Lou always takes great care of Asha and have already booked another stay. Thanks Lou!
Romeo was so well loved and taken care of. When we picked him up he ran to us and then back into Lou's! I guess to show us his new home away from home. The house & back yard are perfect for any dog.
Lou went above and beyond the call of duty. My Mom broke her hip and I needed to be at the hospital due to her dementia. Lou took in Maggie immediately, her 14 yr old Papillon who has arthritis, is deaf and partially blind. Due to Maggie's restlessness and looking for my Mom, her arthritis acted up and Lou was up for 2 nights caring for her while I took her to the vet twice to manage her pain.
With Lou's attention to detail and compassion during Maggie's stay we were able to stabilize Maggie and get her back to visit with my Mom.
When my sister arrived to help me care for my Mom, Lou made himself available to care for her golden retriever Daisy if need be.
My family will always remember the unselfishness that Lou showed during our time of need.

Lou was great with Abby, she was well cared for and seemed very happy when we picked her up, I would most definitely recommend Lou and will definitely use him again, again great job LOU!!!!!!!!!!
This was a third stay with Lou for our dog. He was so excited to see Lou again and had great time! Lou takes very good care of him for us!
Lou is a new dog minder for us and when we met Lou we could immediately tell that he loved dogs! Check 1!....We left our Chocolate Labrador, Sasha with Lou for 3 nights....Lou provided us with text message updates and photos and Sasha was in a ery happy state when we collected her...we could tell Sasha had been well cared for! We will not hesitate to use Lou in the future!

Lou is the best, he treats my pups like they were his own cherished children. When I came to pick them up they didn't want to come home with me, which hurt my feelings, but also made me happy. Just like a good grandparent he spoils them with love and attention. Also, I love that he is constantly sending me pictures of them playing and having a great time so I too can enjoy my vacation.
Thanks, Lou!

My dog and I are so happy that we found Lou through DogVacay. He takes great care of Bruce while I am away and it is a great comfort to know Bruce is getting direct attention, compared to a kennel. Lou is flexible with drop off and pick up times and I love that he sends pictures and text updates of how Bruce is doing during his stay. I can hardly imagine taking Bruce anywhere else in the future.

I can not say enough good things about MILO'S stay with Lucky Lou! He text messaged me how he was doing the minute I left for my vacation... sent me tons of HAPPY PUPPY PICTURES during the week we were gone and discussed ways to get him to eat his food better then he ever has with my family.
Lou is the best! He gets right down on the floor with the dogs and loves them like they are his own...
I felt totally at ease with leaving my dog there and will DEFINITELY BE CALLING HIM ON OUR NEXT VACATION ( that doesn't allow dogs! )
THANK YOU LOU! YOU ARE THE BEST!

This was the first time we had to leave our dog with anyone outside of our family. Lou was so kind and understanding. He and his home are clean and welcoming. He kept in good communication with me throughout Mia's stay. I have nothing negative to say about this whole experience. Very thankful to have found Lou on Dog Vacay and would definitely use his services again!

This was our dog's second stay with Lou. He is amazing! Will book soon again!
We have used Lou several times for our dog Scarlett. She loves her visits with Lou and considers it a 2nd home. The peace of mind that Lou provides us when she is in his care is amazing. 5 Stars All Around. Thanks Lou!!
Always 5 stars for Lou, couldn't ask for better pet care.
Little Gus had a wonderful experience! It is comforting to know that he has a "home away from home " with the same care he receives from us on a daily basis. We will return !
Ruby is an 11year old lab mix: I never thought I could leave her in anyone' care ever!!
I cannot tell you how easy and comfortable Lou made this for me and Ruby. Look no further and don't give it another thought Lou is deserving of rave reviews. Thank you, Jim & Ruby

I used Lou for the first time, he put my concerns at ease by sending us photos. Our dog was in a good disposition when we picked him up.
Lou has kept our Truffles on 2 occasions and each time after drop off, and throughout the stay he has kept us aware of how she is doing, complete with pictures. Communication with Lou is easy and with 1 visit we could see how invested emotionally and physically he was with Truffles. This made us feel comfortable with her being left in his care, knowing she is in good hands. Pick up is full of excitement for her and he went the extra mile just to say good bye to her. Lou has gained our trust!

Lou was fabulous! Our dog loved him. Upon meeting our dog, Lou got right down with her and made her feel at home. He kept us updated on how she was doing throughout her stay with texts and pictures. We would definitely recommend Lou and will certainly use him again!

Coco had another fun visit at Lou's! She's always so excited when we pull in his driveway. She can't wait to go back.
Lou made an extra effort to make Bailey comfortable. I was very pleased that the overnight went so well and plan to use Lou for all our boarding needs.
Lou is great! He sends pictures of our dog during his stay. It is obvious that our dog really likes spending time with Lou.
Our dog considers Lou's house her second home!!
I was very nervous about leaving my new pit mix rescue with anyone I didn't know. But, Lou was the perfect fit! He is a natural dog person and was very helpful and reassuring to me as a new owner as well!
Millie had a great time, and came home from her stay with Lou a very happy and relaxed pup!
Lou is my new dog sitter, and my mom will be using him as well when she needs a home away from home for her dog!
Thank you Lou! You made my sister's wedding extra special due to the fact that I didn't have to worry about Millie!

Lou is wonderful! This was our first Vacay with Lou. Actually the first time we have left our pooch with anyone ever. Lou sent us a photo after about a half hour, and Ziggy looked very comfortable and relaxed. We oftentimes didn't do things or go places because we were uncomfortable leaving our dog in a kennel. Now that we have found Lou, we will definitely be using his services more often. Thank you Lou! ,

Lou was great. He sent pics while we were away so we knew we had nothing to worry about. Would use him again.
Lou is wonderful and took great care of Asha while we were away. We will definitely use him again - highly recommend!
I am thankful we found Lou to take care of our dog Dixie while we were away. He did a wonderful job and will be my first contact for our future pet sitting needs. Lou is clearly an animal lover and exceeded all my expectations. Many thanks!
Lou was a great dog sitter for while we went away for the weekend. We will definitely trust Lou again with our dog if we need to travel in the future!
I've used Lou several times now and he is fantastic! Both he and Molly seem to have a great time when I'm away. Very reliable; communicates well and seems to really care about and love dogs.
My dog LOVES to stay with Lou! She runs right up to his door and he then showers her with hugs and kisses. Marlie stays with NO ONE but Lou when I am away. I NEVER worry about Marlie while she is at Lou's. I know she is well cared for while I am away. I also LOVE the pics Lou sends of Marlie ... it helps me know my dog is happy while not "home".

Our dog,Sammie, had a wonderful time while we were away... I think we were more nervous about this separation than he was.

The photos of he and his "buddies" on walks and while relaxing were very reassuring.. Was wonderful to see Samme react so warmly to a new person and to new surroundings -- made me feel at ease.

We certainly will use Mr Lou again when we need to leave him nearer to home.

Lou provided a wonderful home away from home for our dog, Lexi. He kept us posted on how she was doing with pictures and messages. When we picked her up, she was relaxed and not stressed at all. We will use Lou again and would recommend him to others.

This was the second time we left our Lab with Lou and it was for a longer period. She returned home happy and well cared for!! We would not hesitate to leave our family member with Lou again!
Lou took great care of Jasmine, and we will be using him again in the near future! Highly recommend!
Lou was a great host. My dogs were well taken care of and happy. He sent pictures and updates of the dogs. I would go back.
Lou was amazing! My two boys just spent 7 days with him and they came home happy and refreshed. Lou sent me pics during my vacation so I could see how much fun they were having together. I have already planned my boys next stay with Lou.

I would never leave my dog with anyone other than Lou! She actually enjoys her stay (she knows his home and walks right up to the front door when we arrive). I LOVE the pictures he sends daily, while I am away! AWESOME!!!
Coco is looking forward to coming back to Lucky Lou's. She pulling on her leash to return each day on her first stay there!
Lou seems to absolutely ADORE dogs! He has a very dog-friendly home and environment. He loved on my dog, Marlie, with hugs and kisses when I picked her up to go home. Lou focused on MY dog's personality and provided what MY dog needed ... hugs, kisses and a loving place to stay. THANKS, Lou! WE WILL BE USING LOU AGAIN!
