About Lanny

Growing up all my life with dogs, it's difficult to imagine not being able to surround myself with furry loved ones! There's just something amazing about coming home and having instant happiness pawing at your legs!

Being just 2 blocks from Prospect Park and the gorgeous lake (and the new Lakeside Center), it's a dog's dream come true to have such a large 'backyard' to play around in. I absolutely love spending my time running around outdoors the park with dogs, big or small, and making sure they use up that energy they have built up from sleeping all day!

Having cared for dogs of all sizes/lifestyles, I understand that every dog is unique and requires different levels of attention & care. Because of that experience, I am able to adapt and tend to your pup accordingly.

Every now and then, I take care of my sister's Maltese Pekingese pup, Dumpling, who you will see in the first few pictures. I take way too many pictures of dogs so you can definitely expect quality photo updates for your new iPhone wallpaper...or puppy desktop screensavers, because let's be honest, we all secretly have them!

As a host, I can 100% guarantee a very loving, responsive, and dedicated experience to ensuring your pup has a happy and enjoyable visit, full of belly rubs! Fur sure!

Lanny sent pictures of Edie every other day and she came back happy as pie. He has a great apartment near the park where I believe she was walked every day. I didn't worry about her once while we were away and this was the first time I had given her to a stranger. So that says a lot!

Lanny was very quick to respond to all of my questions. He also sent a couple of update photos over the weekend for me to see :) Overall a great stay with Lanny and would definitely use him again!
Lanny was a kind, conscientious caretaker, and I have since used his services several times. I can think of no higher praise than to say that I trust him, implicitly, with my dog
My god loved walking with him!
Lanny was great, and Stella came back happy and healthy! He was really easy to work with, and I trusted that Stella was in good hands.
Lenny was great! Needed a last minute sitter while we moved. Lenny was helpful and I am so grateful to him that during my move my dog was in good hands. Thank you!
A poem as promised: --- Lanny and Ro dog Spending five days together In peace and quiet __ Lanny took great care of Ro. She's a large dog and can be very skittish on walks but he was able to take her outside. Thanks, Lanny!
Frankie came back happy and blissfully exhausted after one day with Lanny. It was great to get pictures and updates despite it being a short stay. Will book with Lanny again !
We left Messi, our almost 2 year old pup with Lanny for the second time recently. This time he stayed with him for 3 weeks as well. Lanny was awesome as usual. We got regular pictures and updates from him and even though we were not in the country, we were not worried about Messi. At this point, Lanny is the only host i'm comfortable leaving Messi with! Thanks, Lanny.

Lanny was a great host! Charlie Brown came home happy and exhausted, like he'd been away at summer camp. Thank you for being so accommodating!
Lanny was great! Sent pictures kept me updated
Lanny is a kind soul and took great care of my dog while I was away on business and I really appreciated the daily pictures he sent me.
Lanny is great. Rugby gets plenty of exercise and love and attention with Lanny and I get plenty of updates on how he's doing. I will definitely work with Lanny again!
Marco loves Lanny!!! We've already booked Lanny for the holidays. It's not easy for us to leave Marco with other people. We request a lot of photos and almost hourly checkups and Lanny provides more than that. He's really flexible and was willing to do whatever it takes to help us.

Lanny is an awesome sitter or dog parent!

I am very particular about who I leave my dog with and after much trouble I managed to find someone like Lanny. Right from the very beginning he was very accommodating and understanding of all our specific requests for Messi. From agreeing to watch our dog exclusively to feeding him specific foods, Lanny was patient and considerate of everything that was requested and discussed with him.

Messi had a great 12 days with Lanny while we were out of the country. I can't thank Lanny enough for all his help and will definitely be using his services again in the future.

Maya, as always had a wonderful time with Lanny, she even made a new doggie friend Oscar. Maya's always happy to see Lanny.
One of the best sitters I have worked with. My puppy Wilson was happy, and well taken care of. I got periodic updates and responses very quickly. Will definitely use him again in the future :)
Lanny was great! He was the perfect kind, gentle energy for my anxious dogs. Would highly recommend him!
Lanny was great with our dog Jackson. He was highly recommended to me and I will tell my friends and neighbors the same! He was great with up dates and photos while we were away and always quick to reply. Thanks again!
Lanny is amazing as always.
lanny was amazing! I am so uneasy leaving my pug pup. I get crazy! Lanny was great! he sent pictures and texts daily. he followed my boyfriend and my directions and he took GREAT care of my baby Louie. He is simply amazing and I will be using him again :)

As far as I can tell my dog loves Lanny. He is excited when I drop him off and happy when I come home but not desperate or anxious. Lanny communicates really well and sends lots of pictures which makes me feel a lot better about leaving my fur kid. I know our dog can be really high energy and needs lots of special attention but Lanny did not seem phased about any of this which was very comforting. I would recommend him to anyone.

Lanny was great! Super easy to get in touch with and was very accommodating. Lanny came to our neighborhood for out meet and greet, which made things much easier for us. Our puppy Archer seemed to have a great day with Lanny - he was exhausted when he got home, slept 5 hours straight and gave us a little respite! Would definitely recommend Lanny if you're looking for someone to hang out with your pup during the day!

Lanny was very responsive and accommodating throughout the process. He took care of my pups for almost a week while I traveled for work and frequently sent me text updates and photos of my babies. I'm very particular about who I leave my dogs with when I'm away and Lanny made me feel completely at ease. I'll definitely use him again when I travel.

Lanny was awesome! He kept us updated and send us pics. Onyx seemed very happy to spend the weekend with him.
ALWAYS AMAZING!!!! Super accommodating and responsible. Stanley is always happy when I pick him up.
Lanny was fantastic and exactly what we were after! Our dog Rose is not an easy dog to handle and he did a wonderful job walking her every day. He sent us a photo from each walk and updated on arrival and departure. We couldn't have asked for anything more, and will definately be using him again knowing our dog is in very safe, caring hands. Thanks Lanny!

Our 3.5 year old lab mix, Max, stayed with Lanny for a week while we were at the beach. Lanny was great! He sent pictures of Max having fun almost every day that we were gone (Max at the park, Max in a bed, even a slow motion video of Max playing with another dog!). It was fun to get them every day, and to know that Max was being well taken care of while we were gone.

Additionally, Lanny was flexible and punctual with the drop-off time, and even let us add an extra day onto the end of our vacation.

We will definitely have Max stay with Lanny the next time we go out of town!

This is our second time booking with Lanny H. He is wonderful with our dog Marlow. He sent us emails with pictures the entire time that we were away. It really allows us to enjoy our vacation knowing that our dog is in good hands. Thanks Lanny!
Lanny was amazing. My dog-sitter canceled at the very last minute -- I was going away for a week -- and Lanny graciously took Percy despite already having a busy schedule. Lanny sent photo updates and Percy came back happy as can be. Couldn't have gone better!
Read More...
Lanny did a great job taking care of our frenchton, Bogart - the photo updates were really reassuring and it's nice to know that he's home with them most of the day. Would definitely recommend!
Another return booking with Lanny. Stanley always comes home with a big doggie smile after spending time with Lanny. Great attention to detail and a great care giver! Thanks again :)
Lanny was awesome! He was very accommodating, flexible, and responsive. He sent my husband regular text messages with pictures of our bulldog, Lemmy and he kept us updated on how he was doing. We highly recommend Lanny! He's Great!
Lanny was super awesome with my dog. He took daily pictures and kept me posted on how Rugby was doing. Lanny also took Rugby on so many park visits and walks. I would 100% have Lanny watch Rugby again!
My pup absolutely loves Lanny. My dog was excited to see him and smiley when I picked him up. Lanny was easy to work with and very flexible. he even texted me pictures of my pup so I would know he was okay.
Lanny is sweet and responsible- Stanley very much enjoyed his weekend. Thank you for another great experience!
Codi & Maya had the best time ever! They seem to throughly enjoy their times with Lanny. My only complaint is that they return home demanding more play time, he spoils them. I'm a repeat user and my babies and I look forward to our next vacation.
Nigel loved his stay with Lanny! He returned to us happy and with a big doggy smile. Lanny was very organized and easy to communicate with, but most of all he was a real friend to our dog. Great host and Nigel cannot wait to return!
Lanny was such a great match for our pup Twix. We were so stressed out because we were getting married in California, and couldn't take our pup – but Lanny made sure that she was happy and healthy and always updated us on their adventures together. It was so awesome getting to see her happy everyday via text. and it definitely made me and my husband less anxious the entire trip. She definitely got a lot of exercise and outside time with Lanny because he lives so close to the park, so I know she really appreciated that! Anyways, I highly recommend Lanny. He was very responsive and always kept us in the loop.

Everything about this experience was wonderful! Lanny is prompt and responsive while also being relaxed. My little Mia loved her stay and seemed very well adjusted and taken care of when we got her back. I'll definitely be using Lanny's services for our next vacation!

Lanny is so wonderful! He's punctual, communicative, polite, and compassionate. He takes great care of our dog and even sends cute pics of her every day. I'm pretty sure she had a more fun vacation than we did. Perfect. Thank you Lanny!!
Lanny took great care of my boyfriend's and my dog for the weekend. We really appreciated his flexibility with drop-off and pick-up times, and he was very responsive via text message. We would definitely get in touch with Lanny again!
My little Freddy is always happy to see Lanny! Thank you!!!!
Lanny was very kind and helpful. He was also available for all our questions and sent us daily updates of how the dogs were doing, as well as some great pictures. It was very nice to have him sitting our dogs, he clearly loves dogs very much, and I would most definitely recommend him!! For the first time ever, my french bulldog Delfina did not lose weight after staying at a pet hotel/sitter. 5 stars!

Lanny is amazing. Have used him a handful of times and will continue to use him. He sends lots of photos and will pick-up and drop-off if needed.
Lanny is great! Our dog Mason stayed with him for a week and had a wonderful time. Lanny sent several picture updates and Mason looked happy and well taken care of when we picked him up. Will definitely use him again!
If I could give him 10 stars I would.
Lanny is such a life saver! I contacted him during an emergency around 8 AM, he replied immediately and picked up my frenchie Bruno within an hour! It was during Christmas break, but he still managed to help. It was such a relief to know that he was safe and well taken care of (he also sent us some great pictures!).
This is the second time Bruno has stayed with Lanny and he's always been very friendly and professional. Bruno seems to enjoy his vacay a lot, he's always happy when we pick him up.
Thank you so much for everything, Lanny, you're the best! :)

Originally, I scheduled Lanny to watch Codi my mastiff but my daughters dog Maya (a 10lb. Ball of energy) needed a sitter for the same travel dates. Lanny to the rescue! He was able to accommodate both Codi & Maya who are "Best Buds" and picked Codi up first for the long walk to his home & called when he was almost there so Maya could be dropped off. We received frequent updates with great photos. When he dropped Maya off she was happy & as playful as ever. I give Lanny a perfect score as the perfect host for my moose & bunny. They we happy, content & tired.

I really don't want to tell you how wonderful Lanny was with Codi "We want to keep him all to ourselves", but that wouldn't be fair to Lanny. First off Codi is a 90lb sensitive, spoiled, lovable mush who hate car rides, so traveling anywhere is traumatic for all involve. Problem solve, Lanny love all breeds big & small he also offered to walk Codi to his home, approximately 2miles away. When Codi returned after 2wks he was happy to see me, looked wonderful and grabbed his leash when Lanny got ready to leave. Best indication of how my mush felt about his vacation host. We highly recommend Lanny and will definitely be repeat users.

This was a solo meet between Lanny & Codi, they instantly became best buds. Codi loves long walks at a fast clip & Lanny runs, bikes & loves the outdoors as much as Codi. Could not have asked for a better match.
I'm a repeat customer, and also this time I was very happy with the excellent care that Lanny provided to my dachshund Roxy. I was extra glad that Lanny was able to take in Roxy over the Christmas holiday so I could visit family overseas. Thanks again, Lanny, for everything!!
Read More...
Another wonderful visit! Lanny is caring and attentive. I look forward to the photos of Atma he emails me and know she is safe and well cared for while I'm away.
We've used Lanny several times, and will continue to do so! He always answers quickly, sends updates and responds to texts right away. Our pup runs to his house when we take her out of the car :) Highly recommended, he's really attentive and our frenchie loves him!
Read More...
Lanny is super! My 3 moth old JRT absolutely loves spending time with him! Lanny is great to work with and flexible to schedule drop off and pickups. would recommended him to anyone looking for a great care taker
Lanny was amazing, Sesa and Brownie had a blast with him. He was very flexible with pick and drop off times which helped me out a great deal. Being that this was my first time doing this he made me feel very comfortable leaving my dogs with him. He answered every question I had without hesitation. I will definitely use him again and refer some of my friends.

Lanny was a great host! He was super accommodating with my drop off and pick up. He sent me daily updates and pictures of my little babe. Thor came home very happy. Definitely would recommend Lanny and look forward to using him in the future!
Lanny was great. He was very flexible about drop off and pick up times and it was obvious that he took great care of our dog. We will definitely use Lanny again in the future.
Tina seemed well cared for and in good spirits when I picked her up tonight. It is great to know that she liked her stay and I will definitely be back to Lanny with her. He is a very nice young man and texted me while away. She was in good hands and that was a great relief.

We were hesitant about leaving our puppy for the first time, but Lanny responded quickly and was very professional. He was flexible to our schedules and always available. I really appreciated the daily pictures and updates, he's quite a photographer! Thanks Lanny for taking such good care of Bruno, he looked very happy when he got home!

Lanny was a great host to our 1 year old dog Leo! We appreciated that Lanny was super flexible about our schedule (early morning drop off and pick up) and even walked Leo for free for us the day before his stay. Leo clearly loved staying with Lanny because when we saw Lanny on the street after we left, Leo pulled towards him and let our a little cry when he lost sight of Lanny. We will definitely board with Lanny again.

We LOVE our dog vacay host Lanny H. My husband and I love to travel but have a hard time leaving our rescue dog Marlow ever since our regular dog boarder moved away. We started asking ourselves do we stop traveling or find another service? Our neighbors recommended Dog Vacay.com and that is where we found Lanny H. The meet and greet went well and our dog really took to Lanny right away so we signed up for a two week stay with Lanny. We know that Marlow had a wonderful experience because when we picked him up he was in very good spirits wagging his tail and playful. Lanny was attentive, caring and responsible. He returned all of our emails right away and sent us the most adorable picture updates of Marlow to keep us in the loop. We missed our dog the entire vacation but we had peace of mind knowing that he was being well cared for close to home. We can't thank Lanny and Dog Vacay enough. We highly recommend him. He is fantastic.

Lanny took care of our dog while we were away for a week on vacation. He sent photos and we could relax knowing our dog was in good hands. I would definitely recommend him to dog sit.
It was a pleasure working with Lanny! He took great care of Atma and she returned home to me her happy, calm and peaceful self. This was our first time with Lanny and I will DEFINITELY use his services again. Thanks for taking such good care of my girl, Lanny!
Read More...
Lanny was awesome! I'm usually skeptical about leaving our Frenchie with new people because she sometimes gets separation anxiety, but Lanny made sure that wasn't the case. He had sent several pictures (one of which I plan to hang up on my wall with his sisters dog and our frenchie :) ), and kept us in the loop as to how she was doing. He took for long walks and play-dates in the park, our dog had a blast and fell asleep for 6 hours straight when we took her home!

We will definitely use Lanny's services again, he was such a pleasure to deal with!

Highly recommended!
Read More...
Lanny was very flexible with us and provided our English Bulldog with the caring and fun environment he needed for the weekend! He also sent daily photo updates to show us how happy he was. We would recommend Lanny to others, and will revisit him for our future dogvacay needs :)

It is clear why Lanny doesn't have a single poor review. He is amazing. I just picked up my 9 month old puppy from his place after 8 nights and I was very freaked out about leaving Lucy for so long. Lanny was completely responsive to every question and concern I had leading up to the visit (and I had a lot). He made sure his roommate was there to meet me when I left Lucy and he texted me a photo right away because he could tell I was feeling anxious. I stopped worrying immediately. Lanny was texting me photos and in communication the entire time. When I picked Lucy up, Lanny gave me the two best gifts you could give a person coming in after a long red eye flight: 1. he had all of her things packed up and organized for me & 2: she was totally worn out! Lucy had clearly been fed, her business done and we just woke up after a 3 hour nap together. I will absolutely book with Lanny again.
Read More...
Lanny was a pleasure to deal with! He was always so responsive to any messages and questions I sent in a timely manner. He ended up having a scheduling conflict but arranged things with his roommate to pick-up & drop-off our dog, Murphy, which saved me greatly as I needed someone to watch Murphy during our wedding day and I didn't have to go crazy looking last minute to find a replacement. His roommate was early at the pick-up location, was very friendly and checked in with us throughout the evening. It was nice to not have to worry about our dog (feeding & walking him) while all family and friends were with us knowing that Murphy was with someone close-by, friendly and reliable. If I ever need a dog sitter in Brooklyn again, I'll make sure Lanny is my first choice.
Read More...
Excellent, reliable, flexible.
Lanny watched our dog while we went away for a wedding. He sent updates and photos and all went well. We will definitely ask him to dog sit again.
Thank you, Lanny, for giving my Roxy a fun away-from-home experience while I was traveling. It was very reassuring to know that she was in good hands with you! Thank you also for sending daily pictures; those really gave me peace of mind since this was the first time I had to leave her in the care of someone else. Overall, a terrific experience! Thank you.
Read More...
Lanny was great with Bailey. I received regular photo updates of my girl looking right at home—she even got to sleep in the bed like she usually does at our house! Highly recommend Lanny
Robot was so happy when we got home. Lanny sent us text updates and pics while we were away so we knew Robot was having a good time. I only hope he wasn't too much trouble for Lanny ;) I definitely recommend him!
Cookie had a great time as usual! I think she was disappointed there weren't any other dogs to play with after her last stay was with another little buddy, but she'll live. She was so excited to see Lanny when I dropped her off, she jumped up and gave him a hug!
Read More...
Lanny was great! He sent us updates and photos of our dog when we went away for vacation. Our dog is high maintenance, special food and vitamins and has separation anxiety but Lanny took great care of him. It was so nice not to worry while we were away and just relax. We will definitely have him watch our dog again.

Usually when Bella sees me after a time away she leaps and licks and barks her pleasure. When I picked her up after her stay with Lanny she looked at me like "Oh, you're back." she was well taken care of and happy. I highly recommend Lanny.
Lanny was great! He sent me photo updates and Freddy looked happy (and tired, what's amazing for an energetic puppy!) when I picked him up. Thank you Lanny!
Very friendly, provided updates.
Lanny took excellent care of our pup. He also went out of his way to accommodate my pick-up in a taxi on a snowy winter night. Definitely a 5 paws up experience.
Lanny was great. Very responsible, met us in advance of our reservation to make sure that he and our dog got along, and was otherwise punctual, responsible, and ver pleasant. Zoe had a great time while she stayed with Lanny-- way better than other boarding/kennel experiences. Lanny sent pics throughout, so we have proof that she enjoyed the stay. ;) We'd highly recommend his services to anyone.
Read More...
Lanny was great with my dog Cookie while I went away for a long weekend. He was especially great since she needed some meds administered and she had some doggie friends to play with as an added bonus! Will definitely be using Lanny again. After having a few bad experiences, I can tell when she's had a good time and this was a winner for sure (I don't even think she missed me much)!
Read More...
Lanny was wonderful with both our dog, Uri and our cat, Rio! They clearly had a wonderful time at his house for the week we were gone. He sent the cutest picture updates to us every day. He asked a bunch of questions to make sure that he was taking care of our animals in the right way and made us feel secure that they were doing well. He even took Uri to work with him every day so he wouldn't have to be left alone. We will definitely ask Lanny to watch our boys again!
Read More...
Lanny was the perfect fit for our one-year-old Yorky, Lonco.
We left him with Lanny for two weeks to go visit family in Chile. At first we were very anxious about the whole situation but Lanny's regular updates and pictures made us feel so much better :)
We would definitely leave Lonco with Lanny again!
Read More...
We've been using Lanny's service ever since our family moved to Park Slope last Summer. We were so relieved to have found someone so compassionate, organized, professional and trustworthy to take care of our beloved fur baby. We are not only very satisfied with his service, but also very grateful for his full time dedication.He always goes the extra mile, including texting us pictures of our 'very very happy' dog while we're away.
Read More...
We left our dog with Lanny for about a week and we were very happy with his service. He was very responsible and responsive.
We were extremely anxious about leaving our dog but we quickly relaxed as soon as Lanny started sending us updates and pictures where our dog seemed very happy ... so we felt he was in good hands the whole time!
When we got back we found our dog in great shape thanks to the walks that Lanny took with him.
I recommend Lanny to everyone and I will surely hire him again in the future.

Lanny is Amazing! I have a special needs dog that can not walk, and uses a wheelchair to be taken out. My other Dog is young and just loves people, and is not the calmest puppy. Lanny understood each one, and was able to give the best care that I could ask for, when I am out of town. I would highly recommend him.

Our nervous Shiba Inu recently stayed with Lanny for two weeks and had a perfect stay! In the past we've boarded him in kennels for short stays but our dog doesn't cope well and is prone to snapping at other dogs as he's nervous of them so we were concerned about where to leave him. We came across Dog Vacay on a google search and found Lanny who has such great reviews! We're so glad we found him as our dog Leny had a great time and was thoroughly relaxed when we picked him up. He had daily walks in Prospect Park and although it usually takes him a while to get used to new people he quickly warmed to Lanny. We also received lots of lovely photos of Leny out and about on his holiday! Will definitely leave our dog with Lanny again next time we travel!

Thanks Lanny!

Lanny is great. He is able to pick up or drop off my pup Holly. He brings her to work, so I know she's in good company throughout the way. She is always tired for the first twenty-four hours after getting her back due to tons of play time. Lanny's price is great, and my girlfriend and I can relax on our trip/weekend we are away from Holly knowing she is in good hands. Couldn't recommend Lanny more!
Read More...
Lanny was very accommodating and flexible with schedule changes- would definitely leave Barkus with him again! I highly recommend him
Lanny was great! We needed someone to walk Magnolia on our wedding day (unfortunately, there was a no dogs allowed policy at the venue), and Lanny was super helpful. I didn't worry about Maggie at all! He came over at the times we discussed and sent me a text assuring me all was well. Maggie was well-fed and happy when we got home!
Read More...
Lanny was a great host for my Stewie. He sent pictures everyday and clearly made sure that Stewie has happy and comfortable in his home. Stewie even came back more energetic and playful than when I dropped him off, which says a lot since he is already a pretty high energy dog to begin with. I will definitely use Lanny as host again!
Read More...
I have nothing but the absolute best things to say about Lanny! He was incredible accommodating with my last-minute request to watch my dog, Bella, for 4 days and I knew he took great care of her by all of the amazing (photographer worthy) pictures he sent me of her each day I was gone. He even sent me a hilarious video of Bella and another small Maltese he was watching that had me cracking up the whole day. I also really liked that he took her with him to his dog-friendly office every day, so she was never left sitting home alone. I will definitely be using Lanny's superior dogsitting services again if I need to go out of town!

We recently moved to Park Slope and had to find a new, reliable person who can take a good care of our 4-lb Maltese when we are away.
Lanny was incredibly responsive, friendly, and great to deal with!! We never had to worry for a minute while we were away. While we were on vacation, Lanny sent us some great shots of our dog hanging out and enjoying his stay with Lanny. In fact, we think our dog had a better vacation with Lanny than we did in Florida (it rained non-stop and our flight got delayed for over 4hrs, etc etc).
This was our first DogVacay experience and we already plan to book Lanny again for our upcoming December vacation.

Thanks Lanny! :)

Leaving Quimby with Lanny while we went on vacation for 10 days was a revelation. Instead of feeling bad about leaving behind our dog at a kennel, we realized she had the best time of her life! She came back healthy, happy, and in better shape than we we left, thanks to their many romps in the park. Lanny is kind, courteous, responsible, and communicative. He kept us updated with pictures of Quimby, and always responded quickly to texts when we had a question or just wanted to know how our dog was doing. He even came by to pick her up the morning we were leaving so we didn't have to deal with dropping her off as we were scrambling to get out the door. Lanny is so terrific! I would highly recommend him to anyone -- he's a true animal lover who really *gets* dogs. My only problem now is that I think Quimby misses him. :)

Lanny took amazing care of our already spoiled rotten pup Mackie for 10 days of total doggy vacay!

We received daily photo updates with witty commentary. Lanny took Mackie everywhere with him so he made a lot of friends during his stay.

Mackie is already looking forward to his next visit chez Chateau Lanny!
Read More...
Lanny was such an awesome host! He kept us updated with amazing photos while we were away. Primo came back happier than ever and we can't wait to use him again!
Lanny was fantastic. He was able to pick-up and drop-off which as really helpful. He took Holly for plenty of adventures including his workplace during the day and dog-friendly bars at night, and sent us photos which we loved. Since Lanny dropped off Holly she won't shut up about him ;-)

I definitely recommend and will definitely use Lanny again.

There are no words to describe how much I appreciated Lanny's help. I was out of town for four days and Lanny came to my apartment three times a day and took my decent sized dog out for lengthy walks. He also sent a few pictures and videos (at least one a day) that were quite artistic and my dog looked pleased as can be in each one. Lanny came to my apartment a week before I left and met Toby, took him on a brief walk, and got to know him a bit so that Toby wouldn't be frightened when Lanny came to get him. By the end of the week, my friend who was visiting, said that Toby would light up when Lanny came to get him! His prices are fair and he responded to all my questions and concerns. I would high recommend Lanny to anyone needing pet care and I will certainly use him again! So hats off to Lanny: the Dog Nanny!

Our 14-year-old pom had a great time with Lanny; we know this because Lanny sent us several pix of him strolling around town.. in the park, on the subway, and even at Lanny's office. As a centenarian pooch, Max (our pom) moves a bit slower than he used to; Lanny took proper care (administered his pills, etc.) but still gave him plenty to wag his tail about. Max loves fresh air and lots of company.. and between laying in the park and going to Lanny's office, he was quite happy.

Lanny was an awesome sitter for our two yorkies, Hughy & Lewis. He provided everything we hoped for in our first dogvacay experience. He was happy to have us over for a meet and greet to show us around his place, and was very responsive all throughout the process. He was also kind enough to tell us about the first-time $10 off coupon, and send amazing instagram photo updates of Hughy and Lewis' vacation.
We felt good leaving our pups with Lanny knowing that they were having a blast. Lanny truly has a passion for pets and embodies all the best qualities of a dogvacay host!

Lanny is the man. He was super responsible with our pup, Jesse, and they had a great time together. It was Lanny's first time staying outside of his own home with a dog and he handled it very well, keeping in close touch with us and asking the right questions when necessary. We're pumped to have met Lanny and definitely hope he's free to watch Jesse next time we're away!

If there was one word to describe the way Lanny took care of my baby pug Louis, it would be (fucking) awesome!

Lanny sent us periodic updates on Louis so we knew how he was doing and was able to clean his wrinkles daily (a task only a mother like me could do!). Lanny took such good care of Louis!

We got Louis back happy and healthy! Something he usually isn't if we drop him off at a pets hotel (where he contracted a bad kennel cough the last time.. yuck!)

With Louis being so happy when picking him up, Lanny feels like an extended part of our family now...lol. I'd most definitely recommend him for your pet if you see yours as a child (like I do mine).

Lanny was great. He showed up at my house and picked up my Yorkie. He took her to the park for hours which she loved. I communicated regularly by text, keeping me posted on events. He was very relaxed with me and my pet and that put me at ease.
Our pup was so happy after spending almost two weeks with Lanny! She even lost some weight thanks to all of her walks with Lanny. Lanny sent us pictures of our doggy's adventures while we were gone and was very flexible and responsive. Our doggy will definitely be spending another dog vacay with Lanny in the future.

Lanny was a phenomenal host, would it be obsequious to describe him as a "godsend"? I was fortunate to find him available during my recent business trip. He was extremely responsive to my initial emails (i.e. before I booked the reservation) and remained that way throughout my puppy's entire stay. My new Maltese Hushpuppy was left in great hands as Lanny was warm, inviting, friendly, and seemed to genuinely love my little guy. Lanny sent daily photos and updates that showed me just how much fun they were having. When I returned (late!) Lanny was gracious and professional. Moreover, Hushpuppy was in an excellent mood that further demonstrated how well taken care of he had been. I would recommend Lanny without hesitation. It gives me peace of mind to know that there are Lannys out there with willing hearts to open their homes with professionalism and care. It was truly a pleasure to work with you.

Lanny was a fantastic dog host for my 8 month old French Bull dog puppy. Lanny came and met me and inky as soon as i requested to meet him before I made my reservation. He was great at keeping in touch and sending wonderful documentation in emails and photos of my beloved Inky. My dog was returned after 12 days very happy and clearly in great shape having had Lanys excellent care, company, dog walks and the best dog sitting. I definitely plan to wk w Lanny again and highly recomend him to anyone as he's
Highly responsible and clearly loves dogs.

Lanny is smart, friendly and reliable. He has a well kept, good-sized apartment and knows his way around pets. I really appreciated his flexibility when I was stuck on an airport runway on my way home. Most important, Sophie seemed to enjoy her stay.

I will definitely use him again.

Lanny was a most gracious host for Wilma. She enjoyed her walks in the park and Lanny shared lots of pix to keep us up to date. Wilma was very happy after her dog vacay with Lanny.
