About Lauren

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm Lauren, a writer who works part-time. Your dog will get lots of play and cuddle time with me!

My spacious two-bedroom apartment is an 8-minute walk from the Montrose Beach dog park, so we'll go on lots of long walks there (if he/she likes those!). I live with my husband Hogan, who also loves dogs.

My best friend growing up was my miniature schnauzer Jazz. Ever since then I've done pet sitting for family and friends. My favorite thing is when one of my regulars arrives, recognizes where they are, and gets so excited! It makes my heart explode.

My building has an elevator -- great for older dogs who don't want to take the stairs. We have a medium-sized back yard for quick pee breaks, and then plenty of green space around for longer walks.

Every day, I'll walk your dog three times -- and at least one of those will be 20+ minutes. I like the exercise, too!

Unfortunately I'm allergic to shedding dogs, so can only watch ones that shed very little.

Lauren was a great host to my little pooch! My pooch is very,very, very important to me and finding a sitter for him was not easy for me mentally! I needed to go out of town and knew I needed someone to watch him but I couldn't picture leaving him with a stranger. However, after reading Lauren's ad and then exchanging a number of messages, I was beginning to feel a bit better about this "Dogvacay" thing! I knew for me to move forward with this that I would have to do a meet and greet. Lauren was very open to the idea which I was glad to hear. My pooch and I met with Lauren and her husband Hogan. By the end of our meeting - the subconscious anxiety I had about leaving my little pooch behind was pretty much gone. Lauren and I exchanged a few more messages and then it was time for my pooch to have his "Dogvacay!" Lauren and Hogan sent me photos and updates and when I wanted to know how things were going - they replied to my inquiring texts. My little pooch uses a pee pad and Lauren was fine that. We brought his bed, toy, food, bottled water and treats - including blueberries - my little baby must have had a great time because he was happy and full of energy when I picked him up and he showed no physical signs of anxiety or different behavior once I brought him home. This turned out to be a good experience for both me and my pooch. I actually found myself contacting Lauren less than ten days after I picked up my pooch hoping to schedule another stay.

Giz's stay with Lauren was amazing!! Based on the pictures that were sent during her stay, and how pleasantly exhausted she came home, there is no doubt she enjoyed every second!! We will book with Lauren if we need a doggy vacay again!! (:
Lauren is amazing!!! My pups stayed with her for 5 days while my husband and I were out of town.

Each day I was sent a text or picture of what my tiny ladies were up to. It was so cute to see them snuggling and having a good time with Lauren.

She really did love and care for them just like my husband and I would. The girls were happy to see us when we returned, but they also were a little sad they had to leave their new friend.

Lauren was amazing. Pup came back happy and anxiety free.
Lauren was so great with Izzy and Izzy loved her!!! She sent me photos and videos over the weekend which was really nice and made our family feel better about leaving Izzy. It was a great first experience all around!
Lauren is reliable, caring, and very affectionate with my dog. My little guy runs right into her place without a second look back, so I know he's having a great time!
We've used DogVacay before and can say that Lauren was simply the best experience we have ever had leaving our pup Milo with a sitter.

Preparing for a trip to Chicago, my dog sitter fell through at the last moment. Stressed out, I contacted Lauren on DogVacay, and she responded immediately! Not only that, but when I dropped off Milo, I felt immediate trust with her. Milo can get a little shy around strangers but Lauren knew exactly how to get him to warm up. Its clear that she truly love dogs.

Lauren's apartment was the perfect size for mid to small dogs and offered lots of toys/space to run around. Throughout Milo's stay, Lauren sent daily updates with photos and videos. She took Milo to the park each day and even the beach once!

I plan on using Lauren during my next trip to Chicago and I know Milo looks forward to it! I highly recommend her.
