About Laura and David

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
When your pet joins our pack you can expect the full Dogvacay experience. My husband David F. and I ensure daily feeding schedules, dog-friendly back yard and loads of human interaction! We have a lengthy history with fostering Siberian Husky's, but love all mixes!

Located near the airport (Denver International Airport - ~35 minutes), we can offer extra services to aid in logistics of you and your pet!

4-legged friends (and tripaws too!) are treated like our own and spoiled as such. Couches and beds are fair game but there are also dog beds for everyone.

We have had experience with "special needs" pets including tripawds, dietary considerations, administration of drugs (orally and subQ), and elderly pooches. Our home is a single level ranch. If you have a dog with special physical needs, please contact us for more information so we can provide a comfortable stay.

Resident dogs are up-to-date on vaccines and altered. Preference given to crate/kennel trained dogs, altered pets and guests up-to-date on vaccines. Special cases can be discussed, reviewed, tested and if approved a custom quote may be provided.

Laura and David are great! I travel for work frequently and depend on them often to take care of my dog while away. Not only is my pup happy and healthy on my return, he genuinely enjoys the visits with his other furry friends!
Our dogs came home happy and not overly tired. I knew they were in good hands from the start, and it made leaving town that much easier. One dog had recently been diagnosed with Addison's disease, and the other had recently had an upset stomach. I knew Laura and Dave could more than handle any medical issues that might arise. I would happily leave them here again!

Chester considers this his second home now. When I drop him off, he runs to the door as if to say "see ya mom!", like a kid going to his best friends house. Warms my heart and makes traveling so much easier knowing he is in such good hands.
I always miss my pups when I am gone, but I felt very good about taking my trip because I knew Laura and David would take good care of them while I was gone. I loved the pics of the pups I received, and the pups were calm and happy when I got home. I know they had a good time and were well cared for!

As always Laura and David were awesome! Pups had a fantastic time at their new place!
Laura and David are LIFE SAVERS!!! When my old kennel closed it's doors, I wasn't sure I would find a comparable replacement and I didn't. I found a much better place! Chester feels right at home and I don't have a thing to worry about while I'm away. All the pictures are AWESOME!!

Laura and David are amazing! Tanner loves it over there, he loves playing with the other dogs and running around. We are very grateful to have such wonderful people to watch Tanner!
Laura and David were awesome! Pictures were sent every day. The dogs looked like they had adjusted well and had plenty of space to stretch out and relax for their stay. Laura went out of her way to make sure our finicky dogs ate. I wouldn't say my dogs were overjoyed to see me. I think they wanted to stay longer! Will hire Laura and David again! This was a great experience.

Once again, Laura was a wonderful host for our 5 1/2 month old puppy. Our puppy is full of energy and Laura's home has wonderful dogs to keep her busy playing all day long. We were so grateful they were able to take her over the holidays. Thank you so much for loving and taking care of our puppy.

Laura and David watched Tanner for New Years and were so accommodating! They sent pictures and even video of Tanner, who had so much fun playing. He played so much he was tired out for 2 days after! Laura and David definitely are our go-to's when we need someone to not only watch Tanner but to give him that special care he wouldn't get at a Kennel.

We could not be more pleased with the level of care our dogs received during their stay. It was our first time having to leave them for an extended period of time and the experience couldn't have been more positive. We received daily videos, pictures, and text updates of all the dogs playing and having a good time with each other. They were completely exhausted when we picked them up from all the time they had to run around and play outside. We definitely would let Laura and David take care of them again.

I cannot say enough good things about Kemba's stay with Laura and Dave. He loved every minute of his stay....I know this b/c Laura and Dave sent me regular pictures and videos of Kemba playing while I was away. It really makes a difference when you know your pups having fun and interacting with other dogs. When I picked him up, all of his things were packed up and clean, crate folded down and ready to load into the car. I will absolutely have Kemba stay with them again for any future vacations.

Laura and Dave were perfect hosts! This is the second time my dog stayed with them. I really appreciated all of the pictures and videos, which were both reassuring. I know my dog had a great time there as he's been passed out since we came home!
This is the second time my dog stayed with Laura and David and he had such a fun time! The moment my dog noticed that he was rolling into their neighborhood, he became super excited. His stay was over Thanksgiving and Laura and David were very flexible to make sure the stay worked for us. We also received frequent photo updates and it was obvious that he had a blast!

Laura and David were great hosts. They were very flexible with my times for drop off and pick up. Leo had so much fun with their pups. He came home happy and tired. Laura sent great pics of Leo loving on David. They gave him all the attention he desires.
I have a new great sitter that can take great care of my special needs boy.

They were great!!! We received over 20 pictures and loved each one :) I think the dogs had a better time then we did. I highly recommend Laura and David and would use them in the future, for sure!!!
As always, a wonderful experience! I travel for work and my schedule can be challenging. Laura and Dave go out of their way to accommodate me and the dogs are always excited when we arrive at their house!
Laura and Dave are absolutely amazing! I have two rescue dogs with unique and challenging needs. When I dropped them off, the dogs were so excited to return and they were reluctant to leave when I came to pick them up! In addition, I receive wonderful photo updates that are reassuring and, frequently, amusing as well. I never have a moments worry when I leave my pups with Laura and Dave!

Laura and David were amazing with our 14 week old puppy, Lacy. We were very nervous about leaving her at such a young age, but Laura graciously provided time for a meet and greet before our trip and Lacy absolutely loved Laura right away. The daily photo updates assured us Lacy was doing well. Our pick up and drop off times were easily accommodated. We were happy Lacy was given the opportunity to socialize with other dogs. She came home happy and tired. We were thrilled with the care she was given.

Laura did a terrific job taking care of our husky, Shiso. Huskies are a tough breed to care for, they are notorious escape artists and can be a bit stubborn. We were thrilled to find a sitter with husky experience and huskies of her own. Their place is well secured and has plenty of space for dogs to play and stay entertained. We also really appreciated daily pictures being sent to us with updates on Shiso and just to see he was still there and in good shape, that gave us a lot of piece of mind.
Will definitely reach out to them again on our next vacation.

I would say overall, Laura and David were perfect hosts to my Ava! She seemed to have a wonderful time and was absolutely pooped when she got home. She was a little nicked and weak, but that's cause my babe know how to play until she can play no more! So, I'm pretty positive that she had a wonderful time. Laura and David made sure to send me generally 2-3 pictures of Ava a day, which was nice and were extremely knowledgeable and welcoming during our meet and greet. I was unsure if I could trust people with my dog, but just after meeting them, I could immediately feel trust in Laura and David to take exceptional care of my baby! Thanks Laura and David for giving me a worry-free vacation!!

We will definitely use Laura and David again when we have to leave our Huskies! I think they enjoyed their "vacation" as much as we did. We received photos and updates every single day which put our minds at ease and allowed us to relax & enjoy our time away. I'm so glad we will never have to send our pups to a kennel!

Laura and David were awesome! My dog was very comfortable with them and their pack and thoroughly enjoyed his stay with them. I would highly recommend them if you're looking for a place for your pup(s). I got lots of fun photo updates along the way and was always up to date with his condition (my pup has severe allergies). I will definitely be returning to Laura and David's in the future.

Really happy with our experience with Laura and David. Laura responded to all of my emails very promptly and was flexible with pickup/drop off times. Sam seemed well cared for and looked like he was having a great time from the daily picture updates. These hosts really love dogs and it shows! We will have Sam stay with them next time we are on vacation!

Laura and David were great hosts to my dog. Being a shelter/rescue pup I initially had some concerns regarding my dog's behavior in a new environment with strangers, an area Laura and David are thoroughly experienced in. Much to my surprise and comfort Darby fit right in and was provided with the same level of care and attention that she received at home. I will definitely be doing this again!

This was the first time leaving our dog, Nikko, with Laura and Dave. They were really great and I was really pleased throughout the whole process. Nikko came home exhausted and has been sleeping ever since. I'm sure he had tons of fun playing with their dogs. Thanks Laura and Dave!!

Laura and Mike are amazing! Kenai was on medications and they managed to administer the pills even though it proved to be a challenge. Best of all, the dogs were very excited to return!
Laura is the only person who has watched our first family dog, Lucy. We took Lucy over to Laura's house for the third time this past week. When we pulled into her neighborhood, Lucy got so excited and started wagging her tail. Lucy goes right to Laura. Just like her last visits, I received pictures, which is comforting. Lucy, even though she is just a miniature schnauzer, enjoys playing with Laura's big dogs. I would recommend her to any dog owner.

When my wife and had to leave town suddenly for a funeral, and my usual dog sitting standbys (my parents) were out of town, I checked with Laura on a few hours notice. She said no problem and I brought our 10 yr old pug mix over to her house.

One look at Laura's house will tell you that it is owned by dog lovers! There are water bowls and dog beds stationed all over the house and there is a custom made dog-friendly ramp from the porch to the yard.

Our dog is usually very fearful in new situations but as soon as she walked in the house her tail perked up and she started smiling.

Laura is a great dog sitter. She is experienced enough to know when to be concerned and she is clearly very caring. She sent us pictures every day of Miss Olivia. She even had all of Olivia's stuff ready when it was time to pick her up.

What else can I say? I would definitely trust my canine family member to her care.

This was our first time leaving our two rescue dogs with Laura. She and Dave provided frequent updates including photos and YouTube videos- all of which were very reassuring. I would highly recommend Laura if you are looking for loving care for your furry kids!

My dog is epileptic and she requires medications on a daily basis. I finally found a pet sitter that understands the importance of not skipping a dose and that makes sure my dog ate all her pills. It’s easier to enjoy your vacation when you know your dog is in good care. I will definitely recommend Pack of Pouches to my family and friends.

We left our puppy, Lucy, with Laura for a week. I did not want to leave her anywhere where she would spend the majority of her day in a kennel. When I found DogVacay, I was so happy. Then when I talked to Laura, I was sure this was the right fit for us. Laura was so pleasant and welcoming to Lucy. She took her on daily walks & Lucy had other dogs to play with all day. She sent me messages every day about how Lucy was doing with photos and videos. I was so comfortable that Lucy was with her. When my flight was late & my mother had to pick up Lucy, she said Lucy didn't want to leave. That shows me she enjoyed herself. I would recommend her to anyone & I definitely would not leave Lucy with anyone else.

Max's stay with Laura was wonderful! She was so flexible (even when our return flight was delayed multiple times, she still worked with us on the ever-changing pickup time.) I loved her daily updates with photos and videos - it made me feel reassured that Max was in a great place and was being taken care of. When he was picked up, he almost didn't want to leave his other playmates! Overall it was just a great experience and I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone.

I have to say we were a little worried having anyone other than family watch our boys but we were more than pleased by the whole process!!! Laura was amazing from the beginning talking us through and being very flexible. We got wonderful updates everyday and even a few videos...have to say it was wonderful to see our boys playing and having fun. One of our dogs had a small incident (little cut on his lip) she was on the spot letting us know right away and updating of any changes!!

I am sure that we will be coming back to see her again!! Thank you so much Laura!!

Radish loved her stay with Laura. Laura is a dog lover and made me very comfortable to drop off my puppy with her. Radish loved the other dogs in the pack, and I felt good knowing that she was running around and having fun. I received a picture every day and Laura was good about communicating both before the vacay and during. I would use Laura again for our next dog vacay.

Laura was a great host to our 9 month old puppy. It was great to get daily updates on how he was doing and see pictures of him playing with her dogs. We would use Laura again in a heartbeat to watch our pup and were very grateful to find her.
Thanks!

Laura is great. She really cares about dogs and is very knowledgeable. Laura gave us daily updates and I felt completely at ease knowing my pets were in her care. It's great to know that I have a place for my dogs in the future.
Another great stay! This time we had two happy dogs cared for. Will be back for another visit the next time we are out of town!
Laura was fantastic, and our dog Olive was very well cared for while we were out of town. She kept in contact sharing pictures and providing updates throughout our dogs stay.

I would highly recommend Laura, and we hope to have Olive visit her again soon!
