About Lori & Dan

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We offer a very large fenced in backyard that your furry family member will have continual access to through our doggie door. They'll enjoy complete run of our yard as well as our home and have the company of our playful Mini American Eskimo. We are DOG lovers and have cared for dogs for over 35 years. Your pet will be walked, played with and cared for, with constant attention by a stay at home sitter. We will only book one client at a time so as to devote full attention to your family member and not have them exposed to a number of new dogs in an unfamiliar environment(Isn't that the whole point of avoiding a kennel?). In order to alleviate stress levels on our cat, we limit our hosting to medium and small sizes(35lb or under). We look forward to hearing from you and encourage "Meet and Greets" to insure your comfort level with where your pet is staying.

Our two pups love going to visit Dan and Lori! They treat our two little dachshunds like part of the family, which means so much to us. It enables us to relax while out of town knowing they are being so well cared for in our absence!
Lori and Dan are wonderful loving people! Our dog Rambo is in their care while I am in Germany for 3 weeks. I get several pics of Rambo a day and always a little message with it! I would never, ever take my dog to any other sitter! If Dan and Lori are booked, I will definetly change my vacation plans, so Rambo can have his dog vacay with both of Them, when they are available! I hoghly, highly recommend this lovely couple!

Reese's had a great vacation with Lori & Dan! We got many updates and pictures throughout the weekend. He got to play in the backyard with his new buddy Kodi and went on fun walks. Would highly recommend!
Lori & Dan took care of Cooper, our wire fox terrier, for a week while we were out of the country on our honeymoon. They were fantastic to work with! Cooper was well cared for and really enjoyed daily play time with their puppy, Kodi. Cooper came home tired and happy. :)

Puffin loves to spend time with Dan, Lori and Cody. He knows as soon as we turn into their street where he is going. I have absolutely no worries about Puffin when I go away, it is a nice feeling
As always, Dan & Lori took wonderful care of our two little ones while we were away. It is so comforting to know they are being taken care of and loved in our absence. Thanks Dan, Lori and Kodi too!
Sweetest people ever!! They send lots of pics and updates about your dog . nothing but great things from Dan & Lori :)
Henley was right at home during his stay with Dan & Lori! I received multiple pictures and notes each day letting me know how he was doing. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend their services!
As always, Dan & Lori took excellent care of our pups while we were out of town. Lucy and Gus immediately knew where we were as soon as we pulled up in front of the house, and literally RAN into the house to start their fun Vacay with their buddy, Kodi! Its so comforting to know our little ones are in such good hands while we are gone.

Once again, Lucy & Gus had a fabulous time during their DogVacay with Dan and Lori. They love playing with Kodi in the big backyard, helping him chase down the squirrels! This was the longest duration that we have left our little ones, but we knew they were in the best possible hands with Dan and Lori, receiving lots of snuggle time and love. Especially love the daily text updates with pictures!

Wonderful as always! I feel very at ease leaving my 11 year old spoiled lab in their care. The updates are paramount to allowing me to have fun when I am not with my Bella! Thanks Dan and Lori!
After returning from our vacation, an extended Thanksgiving stay out of town and recovering from a cold, I am finally writing our review and thanks to Dan and Lori (and Kodi) for taking such wonderful care of Riley. We had the opportunity to take an extended vacation in November and couldn't even consider doing so until we contacted Dan and Lori to discuss our plans and determine if they would be willing to have Riley for this period of time. We were able to go on our trip and truly enjoy our time away. The pictures and videos we received throughout our vacation gave us peace of mind and a few chuckles. We enjoyed watching Riley and Kodi playing together as well as seeing how comfortably she had settled in Dan and Lori's household. It is a great feeling to be able to leave Riley feeling 100% confident that she will have as good if not better time than we will! Having Dan and Lori in our area is such a treasure and we are so grateful for the attention and care they provide.

Wonderful as always!!!
Lori & Dan,

We are very sorry that it took us so long to get this review out but things have been hectic.

This is the 3rd time that Lori, Dan, Cody, & Jack welcomed CT, our 9 year old Shih-Tzu and was cared for by Lori, Dan, Cody, & Jack. Their care is 2nd to none. This was the longest that we left CT (10 days) & CT turned 9 Years old on the day after we dropped him off at Dan & Lori's. CT enjoyed when Dan had a 9th Birthday Party for CT with hats and everything. Thank you so much Dan & Lori, CT loves the squeaky toy that you got him. We received photos and videos of CT playing with Cody and Jack, going for walks with Lori, celebrating his 9th Birthday with Dan, & playing with Jack. As usual, CT was made extremely welcome and had fun playing with Dan, Lori, Cody, & Jack.

We don't like to leave CT that long but we were assured that he was in the BEST hands possible and receive the BEST care possible. We were on a cruise and we got pictures & videos when we arrived in Puerto Rico and at various times on the ship that made us feel that CT was having the most fun that he could have without being with us.

Dan, Lori, Cody, & Jack make Dog Vacay the best that it can be because they are the BEST & FINEST care takers that we ever used.

If you are in doubt, give the furry babies to Dan, Lori, Cody, & Jack and you have nothing to worry about. They are absolutely THE BEST!!!

Thanks again, Dan, Lori, Cody, & Jack from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did to make CT feel welcome in your home for the 3rd time.

Once again, Dan and Lori took excellent care of our two little ones while we were on vacation. Lucy and Gus came home happy and exhausted from all the fun they had playing with Kodi for an entire week. It gives us tremendous peace of mind knowing our pups are so well taken care and loved while we are out of town. Thanks Dan & Lori!!!

As always Dan and Lori were wonderful and Stella had such a great time. We couldn't ask for a better experience!!
This was Gus and Lucy's 2nd DogVacay with Lori and Dan and everything went extremely well. Upon arrival, the dogs RAN to Dan and wanted to go inside to investigate and find their doggie friend, Kodi! Lori and Dan updated us daily with pictures of our twosome, which is very reassuring when you're traveling and missing your pups. Its nice to know they are being taken care of, pampered, and loved while we're away!

This is our second visit with Lori and Dan and Tioga had excellent care. We all love Lori and Dan. Connie, Don & Tioga
We are retired and love to travel, but were having angst about leaving our two little dachshunds at one of the local boarding kennels. Thank goodness we discovered DogVacay! It's such a great concept! We chose Dan & Lori, who immediately contacted us to set up a meet-and-greet with them. It went so well, we made our 1st reservation for a vacation we had scheduled. Dan & Lori encouraged us to bring all our pups favorite things (bedding, toys, etc.) to make their stay more comfortable. We also wrote out our dogs' typical daily schedule, which Dan & Lori said would enable them to make Lucy & Gus feel more at home. We received messages every day we were gone, along with pictures that proved our twosome were having a wonderful time with Dan and Lori, as well as their dog, Kodi. Our two were having so much fun, we were worried they wouldn't want to come home! We would not hesitate recommending Dan and Lori. Just knowing our little ones were so well cared for in our absence enabled us to really enjoy our getaway!

Dan and Lori took care of our baby Buddha like one of their own. They wanted to know what his schedule was like, where he slept, how often he goes out, and all the little details. We arranged a Meet-and-Greet prior and this was crucial to the process. It allowed for Buddha to know where he was going and get acquainted with his bunk mate Cody :) I was more nervous and distraught to leave him than he was to see us go. They kept his day as normal as possible, dare I say better.
We received pictures and videos daily. Buddha got to take walks and roam free in their fenced yard daily. Even though we missed our Buddha bear, we felt so relieved to have found someone who cares about him as much as we do. They truly enjoyed caring for Buddha and we are grateful to have found them. We could never have left him at a kennel or boarding house. We can only hope Dan and Lori will be available the next time, if we have to leave Buddha. Our "dog" is our family and Dan & Lori are exactly who you want to leave them with.

Words cannot express our happiness with the care Tioga was given while being cared for by Lori and Dan while we were on vacation. In the past, he had to go to a kennel and we would worry about him. Not the case with Lori and Dan, text messages and videos daily. If you are looking for a loving, caring family to leave your dog while you are gone, Lori and Dan is your answer.

If anyone is in doubt about Dan, Lori, & Kodi, rest assured that your puppy or dog is getting the BEST POSSIBLE CARE. We used Dan, Lori, & Kodi for a second time while I had surgery in Philadelphia during February 2014. Dan, Lori, & Kodi were very cordial and accommodating in scheduling CT to stay with them during my surgery in Philadelphia. Dan & Lori sent various videos and pictures that my wife showed me in the hospital and it made me feel GREAT!!! Dan and Lori are very caring about CT as they are there own dog, Kodi. It was another TREMENDOUS visit with Dan, Lori, & Kodi for CT which he seemed to like even more. Dan & Lori were also very accommodating about the pick-up time in light of the fact that we did not kknow exactly when I would be discharged. We Thank Dan, Lori, & Kodi from the bottom of our hearts for accepting CT into their home and treating CT like they do their own dog, Kodi. I am positive that there will be another time that we will use Dan, Lori, & Kodi's services and if anyone has any qualms about Dog Vacay.com and Dan, Lori, & Kodi, don't worry in the least, just book Dan, Lori, & Kodi and you will never regret it. THANK YOU to DAN, LORI, & KODI FOR ANOTHER WONDERFUL VISIT!!!

This was the longest (12 days) time period that I have been separated from my dog. Lori & Dan really lived up to all of their earlier reviews. They were very communicative before and during my dog's vacay in their home. I received photos and videos every day.

I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a petsitter.

Dan and Lori are such genuine people. They were so nice to us during our first DogVacay experience and they were fantastic with our little one! They were so caring and went above and beyond for Violet. We loved the pictures while we were away. Great experience. Thank you, Dan and Lori!

We had the most amazing experience, we could not be happier. They made us feel so comfortable with leaving Stella, and while we were gone they sent us several pics and videos of her playing in their big backyard, as well as sleeping around the house(showed just how comfortable she was and how quickly she adjusted) We have already booked them again. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!!!

We want to thank Dan, Lori and Kodi from the bottom of our hearts for taking such WONDERFUL care of CT, our 8 year old Shih-Tzu, while were away. CT is our baby & Dan & Lori treated CT with the Love & Care that they do they own dog, Kodi . We received daily pictures and video’s of CT and his exploits in their house and surroundings. The videos & pictures gave us an assurance that CT was in good hands and was having fun. My wife & I were finally able to relax & visit our Grandson & their Family together because taking CT with us was not an option with their dog. We did not have to worry about CT when we saw the videos & pictures of them having fun. We will sure use Dan & Lori again and Dog Vacay.com in the future when we are travelling and can not take CT with us. Thanks again to Dan, Lori, & Kodi for taking CT into their home & their hospitality!!! It was a GREAT experience using Dan, Lori, & Kodi and Dog Vacay.com!!!

Thanks to Lori & Dan my husband and I could feel at ease leaving our dog with someone other than a family member or close friend. We would highly recommend their services and will be contacting them again the next time we need someone to watch our dog, Paw!!

Our dog Pearl stayed with Dan and Lori this past weekend, and we could not have asked for better caretakers for her. They arranged a "meet and greet" ahead of time so Pearl could explore their home and meet their dog Koty. Then on drop-off day they sent pictures of Pearl settling in within an hour after dropping her off. They treated her with kind loving care, just as if she were their own dog. The kept in touch, frequently sending pictures of Pearl playing, going for walks, and even relaxing with them on the couch. We were truly able to relax and enjoy our visit with family knowing that Pearl was in such wonderful hands. I couldn't recommend them more, and we hope to be able to reserve a spot for Pearl with them any time we have to go away and she can't accompany us.

Lori and Dan were priceless to us. We have a very babied and picky little Shih Tszu and they went above and beyond to make her feel at home....even feeding her by hand. They made us feel comfortable before we left with a meet and greet and comfortable while on vacation by sending multiple pics everyday. Made us feel so good that our dog was having a vacation also!!!!! I feel Dismey, our Shih Tszu, and us have made life long friends thru Dog Vacay. What a wonderful service....what a wonderful idea....we feel truly blessed to have found Dog Vacay and Dan and Lori!! :-)

We had a good feeling from the first time we reviewed Lori and Dan's profile on Dog Vacay and our experience confirmed we made the right choice.
My husband and I are retired so our 4 year old English Springer is used to having someone around most of the time and we hated the thought of leaving her in a kennel while we were away for a week. Dan and Lori provided the perfect solution. We set up a meet and greet where our dog Riley got a chance to explore their large fenced yard, meet their dog Kodi and try out the doggie door. She was very calm and comfortable during the visit and we also felt confident this would be a good situation for her. We could tell Lori and Dan love dogs by the way they interacted with Riley and Kodi and the questions they asked about Riley's care. The daily pictures and/or videos we received during the week were greatly appreciated as we could see Riley was doing well so we could relax and enjoy our time away. Whenever our schedule requires an out of town stay, we will be checking Lori and Dan's calendar first thing. Thank you for providing such a wonderful home away from home for Riley. Jan and Jerre

I recently left my 15 month old goldendoodle with Dan and Lori for a week. It was the first time we were apart, so I was obviously nervous to leave her... And with strangers I found over the Internet. My experience was 100% positive for both human and pet!

First, I booked Dan and Lori sight unseen as I live 2 hours away from them (but they lived near my traveling companions). I chose them based on their reviews, standards, and phone interview. I could tell immediately that Cassidy would be truly cared for and become part of their family.

During the 8 days I was away, I received photos and videos on a daily basis. This truly allowed me to fully enjoy my vacation as I could see that Cassidy was very happy, getting exercise, and cared for.

As my dog loves water, they filled up a swimming pool for Cass to lounge in. As their dog Kodi does not enjoy water, this showed me that they were truly taking Cassidy's interests at heart and making her feel at home. They also followed her routine and rules (i.e., don't let her on the furniture) for consistency.

Lastly, my dog has always been a picky eater, leaving many meals touched. At Dan and Loris she ate all her meals when served, and she's been continuing this at home!

Thanks for taking such loving care of my dog! Michelle

This was our first time leaving our pet Owen!! I could not ask for a better experience! They were wonderful! Thank You for the updates and pictures of owen during his stay with you! We will defintely use them again. Maryellen and Franz
Lori and Dan (and Kodi!) were absolutely wonderful. They were super accommodating, prompt, and friendly, and most importantly, the took wonderful care of my dog. Even moreso, she had a blast chasing squirrels and running around with their dog Kodi. When I picked her up, she didn't want to leave!

Good communication. Adjusted their existing plans to accomodate Tova. Nice people as well... Constant updates, pictures, texts. Let Tova watch the football game all curled up on the sofa. Thank You!
A FABULOUS host!!! Caring, respectful of the dog, and very communicative! They stayed with our dog the entire visit and made him feel loved and welcome!
We had a last minute need and Dan and Lori saved us! Even though I misunderstood how to use the site, I got a call within 10 minutes of attempting to contact them explaining how it worked and learning more about my dog and what we needed. We were greeted by the whole family when we arrived and they had lots of great questions about her care. We got pictures and videos of her throughout her stay so we knew things were going well. Our dog was well cared for and we could relax and enjoy our event out of town. Everybody had a good time. We enthusiastically recommend this family as hosts for your pets.

Dan & Lori were great hosts for our 2 dogs. They sent us pictures of the dogs' adventures throughout their stay, and it was so nice to be reassured our pups were happy. They also made the utmost effort to make the dogs comfortable - our one dog especially can have some separation anxiety and he seemed adjusted and happy when we came back to get him. You can tell Dan & Lori really love dogs. We will be using them again!
