About Laurie

Hi,
I am a work from home dog mom. I am very passionate about animals. I have a few dogs of my own that are my "kids". I do not have children . I spoil my dogs and love being home with them. I am very involved with rescues as well and animals are my heart. I have more than 11 years of experience with dogs. I would welcome your pooch into my home as it was their own, they are on vacation after all ! Your special friend would be supervised 24/7 and enjoy lots of cuddles and playtime. I have a nature trail at my footsteps and we will enjoy walks, if wanted. I do offer baths for an extra charge if interested as well. Anything your dog enjoys at home , will be included on their vacation ! I do charge a slight increase on Holidays, however, they will be enjoying their Holidays as well. I am Martha Stewart when it comes to Holidays:) Their stay will be stress free and enjoyed as will your time away ! I look forward to meeting your friend! I also offer cat sitting services in your home .

Laurie was very friendly, and accommodating! She watched our puppy Chipa over a long weekend. Even though my husband and I didn't give her much notice, Laurie was very flexible and set up a time for us to meet her, and introduce Chipa to her dogs. It was apparent from the first few minutes of meeting her, and her friendly pups, that everyone would be having a nice, and safe weekend. Chipa came home just as happy and energetic as usual!

I highly recommend Laurie! Thank you so much for caring for our pup!

This was our first time using Laurie, and we'll definitely use her again. Birdie came back to us happy and tired! I think she misses her other dig friends already!
Laurie was able to help me when I decided I did not want to put my 13 yr old Roxy (mixed Terrier) at a kennel. We had been living overseas and she was used to an open kennel situation which I thought was nicer. The reviews looked very positive and I was lucky enough to get a spot with short notice. We had a meeting to see how the dogs (hers and mine) would react together. Laurie has a great positive attitude and kept in touch with us via Dog Vay while my husband and I were away.
My husband picked Roxy up as I am still away and here is what he said:
She (Roxy) was clean and happy. Laurie had the kennel, dishes and meds ready in the driveway. Did not say a lot. Seemed fine.
Overall a nice experience and I would love to have Laurie pet sit for us again

Laurie came thru for us in stellar fashion. Our Bud took to her and her dogs in a short time and had a great time. She allows the dogs complete run of the house and does not kennel them unless she is gone, which is not often. She gave Bud his meds and kept us informed of how he was doing.
Would recommend her to anyone who wants a warm and caring sitter.

My dogs love staying at Laurie's house! They have friends to play with and always get a lot of snuggles and love. We will definitely use her again when we go out of town!
Piccolo did very well at Laurie's even though Piccolo is an older dog with issues. Laurie is a truly caring dog sitter with a lot of experience.
I contacted Laurie two days before our trip, in a panic because our other boarding plans had fallen through. Laurie responded within a couple hours and she was very accommodating, working with our last-minute schedule. When I dropped our dog off, Laurie met us in the driveway with two of her dogs, and she made our dog feel very welcome. She took great care of Rex.

Keelo had a great time! Sleeping like a baby now after playing with his buddies at Laurie's.
I'm so glad I found Laurie on DogVacay! Laurie quickly replied to my request and questions. I appreciated her flexibility with my trip schedule, even when it changed due to a work conflict. She made me feel at ease the minute she greeted Sherman with her pups outside. I was thrilled to get a photo text during the stay and could see he was clearly making friends and having fun. Sherman is like my child so it is always hard to leave him, but I wouldn't hesitate to have him stay with Laurie again. Her location is also ideal if you are headed from The Woodlands to the airport as there is quick access to the interstate which is always a plus for me. Thank you again Laurie! Hopefully we'll see you and your pups out on the trails soon!

Laurie is awesome! She is experienced with a fun spirit and true love of animals. I was completely comfortable leaving my boxer with her. I received updates and pictures of my pampered dog. I highly recommend Laurie. I give a 5 pawsome experience!
We are heading home today after a week in London. Laurie has made us very comfortable through photos and email about leaving our spoiled Maltese. This was first time ever leaving her for extended time. Laurie is the absolute best and very very patient with neurotic doggie Moms like me!!!!❤️

I think Laurie spoiled my Dixie more then I do!! She was so calm and content when she got home as if we had never left her. Thank you Laurie for taking such good care of our sweet Dixie. We will be using your services again. :)
My girls love staying with Laurie and her co-hosts Andy & Frosty. They are happy to have other dogs to play with and Laurie was great about keeping me updated on what they were up to.
Laurie was able to help us out on short notice to take care of our boxer. She sent me daily text messages with pictures which helped to set my mind at ease while we were away.
As before, I was glad to have a wonderful lady to care for my Daisy. Thank you Laurie for being there. sincerely Linda
I felt very comfortable leaving my 8-year old lab with Laurie. She took time to introduce her dogs to mine, showed me her house - where Hali would be staying - and was fine with giving Hali her medicine. She even texted me a few updates and photos while I was gone. Was worth every penny for peace of mind!

Hunter spent the morning with Laurie and friends for his first experience with an outside caregiver. He seemed very happy there and we look forward to more play dates in the coming weeks. All this in preparation for an upcoming extended stay. I think we've found his new playcation destination!

Laurie was great and so good with Scout & Bella. I will definitely use her again.
Lily and Jory loved their stay at Lori's house. They can't wait to go back :)
Maisie thoroughly enjoyed herself! Laurie sent photos daily...mostly of Maisie being adorable!
daisy had a wonderful time and I felt comfortable leaving my sweet dog with laurie. Will use her again and recommend her as well to friends. thanks so much for being there.. linda
Laurie did drop in visits for our dogs at our house. She was professional and updated us with pictures at every visit, which was very reassuring.
Our dogs loved spending a week at Laurie's house! She was such a blessing when we had to be out of town for a week. When we dropped off our 2 dogs she let them meet her dogs outside, then let them play in the yard together to get out some energy. We received several pictures a day from Laurie showing us how much fun the dogs were hanging. She even let them sleep in bed with her!! They were spoiled on their vacay, which they loved, and it gave my husband and I peace of mind while we were gone. We will definitely use her again when we need to be out of town! We are so thankful for her!!

Maisie is a happy doggie when with Laurie!
Daisy had a wonderful time making new friends with laurie and her dogs. I felt very comfortable being so far away knowing my Daisy was well taken care of. I liked the daily pic updates. I will use Laurie again and would highly recommend her to care for your pets. Thank you so much.

Laurie was great with communication about how our furry baby was doing. She was so understanding about his potty training! You can tell she has a real passion for dogs and rescue pups!
Laurie was really a great fit for my dog, Bailey. She was excellent at communication and updates on how Bailey was doing. I could tell she was a real dog lover on our meet and greet; her dogs were so well behaved and she fosters and goes above and beyond to help animals in need.

I felt very comfortable leaving my dog knowing Laurie does this full time and she truly cares for the animals and wants to make their stay as comfortable as possible. I won't hesitate to use her again and am grateful to have found a place I can leave Bailey and know she will be cared for.

And I need to also mention that Laurie does a fanatic job of staying in touch and sending wonderful photos throughout the visit. The best!
Laurie and her co-hosts Andy & Frosty were great! One of my dogs, Zoe is VERY shy and skittish and I was very worried that she would just be curled up in a ball scared all weekend. As soon as we walked in she was right at home, wagging her tail and giving the other dogs kisses. The pictures Laurie sent of Zoe totally put my mind at ease, because she looked happy and relaxed. My other dog Aggie, a big goofy lab, was spoiled rotten, as she is used to. They were both so pooped when we got them home, we were able to relax and just love on them. Laurie was responsive and very easy to work with. We would totally book her again when we go on vacation.

Laurie was a lifesaver! Our dog-sitter had an emergency come up and wasn't able to watch Oskar over 4th of July weekend. Laurie had amazing response time for such a last minute booking (day of). She was able to take him that afternoon. She really helped us out so last minute! Her house was very accommodating for our large boxer. Her pups were so sweet and welcoming. We loved the picture updates we received throughout our trip. We will definitely be booking Laurie as our first option going forward. Thanks again!!!

Laurie is a true dog-lover. Maisie, being a somewhat timid dog, really enjoyed her play day today. We are taking baby steps so now I will book her in next week for an overnight stay. Laurie sent updates and photos to me throughout the day. I felt very reassured that Maisie was well taken care of!

Laurie and her boyfriend were awesome with my dog. She got exercise (very important for a husky) and was happy when I picked her up, as opposed to how it's been in the past when I've kenneled her. I will definitely take her to Laurie again in the future.

Laurie did an excellent job watching my fur baby! She sent me daily pictures and updates the entire weekend. My pup came home tuckered which I assume is from all the playtime he received. Will definitely be using her again !!
Sita had a great time with Laurie and her dogs. She would have stayed a few more days, I think, judging by the licks and tail wags she gave Laurie. I highly recommend Laurie's dog vacay to anyone. She really loves dogs and treats them like her own. Her place is clean and beautiful. She took Sita on walks and sent us regular updates. I would definitely use her again.
