About Lauren

Hi Everyone! My name is Lauren, and my dog's name is Bella. Bella is a Maltese but I have owned either Malteses or Shih Tzus for over 15 years and LOVE LOVE LOVE dogs! My husband and I specialize in watching small, hypo-allergenic dogs because we understand these breeds and we are well equipped to watch your baby (or babies)!

We own a home which is very pet friendly. Hardwood floors throughout our first floor make it the perfect place for the dogs to romp around or snuggle up on the couch. We also have a large fenced in back yard perfect for chasing squirrels or sun bathing on the deck. We live in Midtown near Candler Park and Little 5 Points and within close proximity of many parks and greenways!

Bella is extremely friendly and loves being around other dogs. She is 5 years old and she is up to date on all of her shots and vaccinations. Milly Rose is still a puppy, but she is fully up to date on all her shots and loves having friends around. Daniel works from home most days of the week, which is perfect when we have furry friends staying at our home.

We will feed, walk, and cuddle your baby during their stay with us. We are also available to give your dog medicine (if necessary) while you are away. Please message us if you have any questions!

This was my first experience with someone from DogVacay in Atlanta (I had experienced great success for many years in Virginia), and I was not disappointed. Lauren and Daniel were everything I look for in pet sitters - very caring and attentive - and I will definitely ask for their services again. My little dog, Penny, also loved the company of the 2 resident dogs and came away from her "vacation" happy and very lively.
Lauren and Daniel did a wonderful job taking care of my two pups. Having Millie and Bella was definitely a plus. I have no complaints only complements. Thank you.
Lauren and Daniel were wonderful! We had some last minute plans change and they were able to watch our pup, Watson. You can tell they really love dogs and really care for the dogs that stay with them. Watson was happy and tired when I came to pick him up
Lauren and Daniel are wonderful! Ruby has stayed with them several times now and I feel comfortable entrusting them with her. They send regular picture and message updates and it's clear that they spend a lot of time with her and give her lots of attention while I'm away. During a recent stay, my flight was cancelled on the way home so I couldn't pick up Ruby until the following day and they were very accomodating and understanding about the situation. Definitely recommend them!
Terrific as always! Lauren, Daniel, and Bella are great to Cocoa.
Lauren was fantastic and will definitely use her again! My Bella had a great time and I did not have to worry about her at all!
Cocoa seemed to have a wonderful time. He and Bella played together really well. As Lauren says it is more like sending your dog to stay with the grandparents. They come back spoiled!
Lauren and Daniel were great!! They sent me lots of updates and photos through the weekend and they spent lots of quality time with Ruby and took great care of her! Their dog Bella is adorable and played got along really well with Ruby. This was my first time using DogVacay and I was a little nervous about the idea of it at first but they made me feel really comfortable having Ruby in their care. I would definitely ask them to take care of Ruby again.
Wonderful visit with Lauren and Bella. My Mr. B felt right at home with furniture to climb and sleep on and a large, nice back yard for playing.

Bella is a precious hostess and welcomed Mr. B with lots of barks.

No question that I would check on boarding with Lauren the next time we need a safe, friendly home for Mr. B.
Our dog has stayed with Lauren, Daniel and Bella several times now. We wouldn't want to leave her with anyone else because she loves them so much. They have a wonderful fenced in back yard and screened in porch. They are great at sending pictures/updates and are such nice people.
Always a pleasure leaving Jagger with Lauren, Daniel and Bella, he was so tired the next day. Looking for till his next vacay.
Lauren and Daniel are the best, Jagger is becoming more comfortable being away from home, giving him that home environment has really made him more secure, and not to mention Bella keeps him busy.
Highly recommend! They were able to take care of my previous shih tzu last minute. They made her feel very comfortable, as did Bella:)
Lauren and Daniel are the nicest people, I was a little nerves about leaving Jagger with people he didn't know, but they made him feel so loved and welcome that you couldn't ask for better people to keep your pet. And not to leave out their pet Bella, she made Jagger feel right at home. I can truly say that they will be his sitter as long as they will have him. I just love them.
Lauren and Daniel are wonderful dog sitters. They have a cute dog Bella who got along well with our mini goldendoodle. We felt so comfortable leaving her with them. Our dog loved staying there. She especially loved the screened in porch and fenced in back yard. We will be using them again soon!
Wow! They were just lovely to Lucy. She wasn't her nervous self like when I pick her up after staying at Barking Hound, Dogaroo or any of the other big-time boarding facilities. She was happy, she was well fed and cared for and it was noticeable! I'm so very grateful and I will DEFINITELY be using Lauren K again!!
Lauren was absolutely amazing! She accepted my dog vacay request at THE very last minute!! She was polite, pleasant, & professional. She even sent pics of my Poochie while I was in Hawaii. She took great care of our baby & we can't wait to book her again!! Thank you!!
Our pug had a fantastic time with Lauren and Daniel! We were in a bind due to last minute travel plans and they were able to accommodate a last minute meet and greet.

Their dog Bella is super sweet and started playing immediately with our pug, which made for a fun few days at their house.

One other bonus - they let our pug sleep with them at night, which was a huge positive for our dog who is used to doing so :-)

My boyfriend and I noticed that our pug was actually sad to leave them, which shows how much fun she truly had during her stay!
Lauren and Daniel were amazing!! They stayed with our 3 yorkies for 10 days . We did a meet and greet and knew right away our babies would be in great hands. Lauren sent photos everyday which was great. Lauren and Daniel are extremely flexible and Bella is so welcoming to other pups. Our babies had a great time they came home exhausted.
Lauren and Daniel took great care of our yorkie, Lily. Receiving daily picture/text updates was wonderful and helped to reassure us that Lily was having a great time. We will be booking with Lauren and Daniel in the future because they treated Lily like she was their own dog.
This was our first time leaving our 10 month old Morkie, Hugo, with anyone, much less for 5 days, so at first I was pretty nervous about leaving him with people I didn't know. It really helped having a Meet-n-Greet with Lauren, Daniel, and Bella at their home, to check out the environment and see how Hugo would react.

Chris and I probably met the nicest couple who made us feel welcome and genuinely love little dogs. Their home is spacious, comfortable and dog friendly and the backyard is large and well fenced.
Daniel filled us in about adorable Miss Bella and Lauren asked us in depth questions about Hugo's routines, diet and likes/ dislikes. They gave us ample time for Q&A and to get to know them, and by the end, we knew we were making the right choice.

While we were on our Vacay, Lauren messaged daily updates of Hugo with pics of the dogs playing, sleeping or just hamming for the camera. We looked out for those messages not because we were worried, but because they made our day!
When we finally picked up Hugo, he looked like he had been having the time of his life with his new pal, Bella and well taken care of.

The whole experience was great for Hugo and us and we would highly recommend Lauren, Daniel and Bella to anyone looking for a more loving interactive environment to boarding their pet!
Jax (our 1-year old yorkie) had the BEST time with Lauren, Daniel and Bella. They were such great hosts, and it was very comforting knowing that Jax was in such great hands. I am sure Jax would love returning for another weekend of play in the future, and we will not hesitate to book them again!
Lauren and Daniel took AWESOME care of my Bella. They provided me with lots of photo/video updates while I was away, and always responded promptly if I sent a text to check on Bella. They are a very sweet couple who truly love dogs! If you are looking for someone to care for your dog while you are away, I definitely recommend booking with these two :)
