About Laura

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We know how nice it is to go on a trip and feel assured that your pup is well-taken care of and having fun in your absence. We feel lucky to have dogvacay when we travel and love hosting other pups when we're in town.

We welcome all sizes, small to giant, and are happy to take care of multiple dogs from the same family. Our energetic Coonhound, Patsy, has never met a fuzzy friend she didn't love, and neither have we!

We work from home and have flexible schedules, so your pup(s) will get plenty of attention and love from us and from Ms. Patsy. Our canine guests are free to go inside and out as needed throughout the day as we have a completely fenced in backyard. Your dog's visit is sure to include lots of playtime, running through the woods (on leash of course!), naps on our sunny back porch, and snuggles on our comfy couch. Your pup will be part of the family in no time!

We have been caring for dogs for 15+ years and both of us grew up with pups at home. We live next to Forest Park in a pet-friendly bungalow with a fenced-in yard. We are right near I-91 and are not far from the Pike. Many guests have enjoyed our proximity to Bradley Airport & the Springfield Train/Bus station. We look forward to meeting you and your pup(s)!

Alex, Laura & Patsy (our pups host) a big THANK YOU for opening your home to this service. This was our first time leaving our pup with someone other than extended family and we couldn't have had a better experience. We read all the reviews and did a few meet & greets ( everyone was great)! We have a very active pup and Patsy and her parents met our pups needs and were a perfect fit! This visit was in February with more then a foot of snow on the ground. The daily dog interaction with Patsy, walks in woods, dog park and a visit to a familiar spot for our pup were big hits. Excellent communication from meet & greet, to daily texts with pics of our pup that put us at ease. We cannot thank you enough for taking great care of our four legged family member.

Laura & Alex were amazing, Patsy too! It was so nice to be so far away and get regular updates on all of my pups adventures, including hikes and playtime. I would use them again any time. They were very accommodating and Cato had a wonderful time!
Kobi absolutely loved it. He must've slept for a day and a half when we brought him back home. He was very well taken cared of. Laura was able to stay with him on extremely short notice and was very flexible with the pick up and drop off.
