My dog, Monty, returned from his stay with Lori happy and content. He seemed very comfortable with Lori and her dog. Lori sent us status reports and photos throughout Monty's vacay. Thank you Lori for taking care of our precious pooch!
I am beyond happy to have found Lori! We left Glitter with Lori over the weekend and we could not be happier with the experience. She took the time to get Glitter to get comfortable with the environment and her house pup Bailey when we dropped her off, and she also sent lots of photos and updates. I don't think Glitter wanted to come home!
If I could rate Lori lower than one star, I would as this is one of the most horrific experiences that I have ever had. Lori moved our two boys WITHOUT our knowledge or permission when they were supposed to be under her care. She did this while I was on a 5 hour flight & I only found out when I received an email from the new host saying that our boys were doing well. Lori did not have the compassion, professionalism or common courtesy to even let me know what was happening prior to her making a change. Once I realized what was happening, I left Lori several messages in near hysterics begging her to tell me what was going on. Lori refused to answer my calls & never called me back. Lori did send me a text message that rudely told me that 4 of her neighbor's complained that my pups barked too much. My boys are not barkers. She also said one was "marking & barking" & bit her. Now I am a proud pup mom, but my boys don't do any of those things. I begged Lori via text messages to tell me what happened & she refused to respond.

In the end, my boys were moved to a lovely host who informed me that Lori was very nasty when she dropped my boys off. She said that Lori didn't tell her their schedule or feeding routine that Lori seemed like she couldn't get out of there fast enough. We received text messages 2 to 3 times a day from our new host letting us know how sweet the boys were & how they were well behaved.

Current guests who use Lori should know this story & reevaluate the kind of care & treatment that Lori may or may not be giving when using her. I have indicted to dogvacy that they may give out my email address to any guest who would like more information on Lori's behavior, to see Lori's text message to me & read the almost 20 messages about my boys from the new host who raved about how good they were.
Lori is all-around awesome - flexible, caring, clean, responsible and responsive. She has watched my dog 2x so far - and, there definitely will be future visits b/c she's a great sitter. I'm so glad I met her!
Lori is awesome! My dog seemed very happy and not really that in a hurry to leave her house. She sent me pictures and text messages through out the stay. And more importantly my dog did not have diarrhea when i got him back (happened to me a few times with other people)

I highly recommend her and i will certainly be using her again!!
Lori is the best dogsitter! Lori has babysat my pup multiple times, and every time I know he is in wonderful hands. She gave me updates on my Maxy's status while I was away as well! I would recommend Lori to anyone!
My dog was with Lori for 8 days and everything was great. This is the second time I left her with Lori, my dog will be back again.
This was Bailey's second time staying with Lori. 5 stars for both visits! I picked up a happy and energetic dog :)
Last week I left my dog Bailey for an entire week (until then I had never been away from her for more than a night). From the moment I walked into Lori's apt. I felt much more at ease about leaving. I knew that while I was away she would receive the individual care and attention she needed. I felt as though my friend was watching Bailey! Lori checked in with me everyday and sent me the cutest photos of my little doggy. A week later I picked up a very happy dog. Bailey is staying with Lori again next week! Great experience!!
Lori is super accommodating (even with last minute bookings) and is very sweet. I always have a great experience when I book with her. I can tell how happy my pups are when I get home that she did a great job walking/playing/feeding my little dudes. I highly recommend her!
Lori was awesome! Her communication & meet and greet we're professional and very efficient. She did a great job keeping us up to date with pictures of our pup while we were on vacation. HIGHLY recommended! :)
Lori is wonderful! She just stayed at my home for 5 days while I went on vacation, and she did a fantastic job of taking care of my animals. So happy I found her!
Lori was fantastic. She stayed at our house for the night and took great care of our dog. He was attracted to her awesome personality immediately and we instantly knew she was perfect to watch him. Lori even brought her dog over and the two got along perfectly. Lori being available to us with less than 24 hours notice was such a bonus. I highly recommend using Lori's services. Thanks again Lori.
Lori is a fantastic host. She is so pleasant and has been very open to dates/times I needed her. She sent pupdates (Pics/Texts) when she came for the visits and was on top of everything. I look forward to using her services for future dates. She is really great!
Great sitter! Super flexible. Took great care of my dog. Definitely recommend.
Lori was fantastic She kept us posted and was flexible about pick up times etc. We could tell Luna had a great time staying with her as she seemed sad to leave!
Lori was great. Very accommodating. Will definitely use again.
Drop off and pick up was smooth. Lori was a gracious host and very easy to deal with. I contacted her for a one-day stay. She was responsive in emails and I felt comfortable leaving my dog with her. She had a good size back yard and seemed to be able to handle several dogs. She had 4-6 other dogs during our stay. She was willing to take my 16-month old labrador even though her clients are normally small dogs. I really liked her patient demeanor and calmness in dealing with the dogs. I would love to use her again when I have a need.
This was our first time using dogvacay.com and I couldn't have asked for a better first experience! we found Lori and set up a meetup first to make sure our dogs would be in good hands and from the start Lori was great! She was very communicative, answered all my questions promptly and when we left to go away I felt totally confident my dogs were in great hands! I can honestly say its the first time I have gone out of town without my dogs and been 100percent worry free as to their safety and care. That felt great! When we picked them up they were happy and looked amazing. They also weren't dead tired as they have been in the past when they stayed at a cage free kennel. So I was very very pleased with our experience and the next time we go out of town we will be booking Lori for sure!
Lori is the GREATEST!!!! A true animal lover that was kind and loving to my 3-1/2 month old french bulldog puppy. I know my puppy and I know that she was well taken care of by Lori and Bailey. Lori cared for my puppy as if it was her own. I give her an A+++ rating and would recommend her as a host to anyone.
I plan to seek her services again and have complete trust in her and the care that she provides.
Lori was awesome. I am so glad to have come across her that I booked her to take care of my puppy for another 5 additional days.
Lori was awesome!! She was very flexible about when and where to meet and as soon as I met her, I immediately felt comfortable with leaving Cheetoh in her care. She kept me updated the entire weekend with photos and texts. I will definitely use her again, and I definitely recommend her. Thanks Lori!!
Lori was amazing!! She took such good care of Sherman and kept us informed of his activities while we were gone. We really appreciated that she kept in touch and he always looked like he was having a great time in the pictures she sent! We look forward to having Lori sit for Sherman in the future.
Lori was great! We needed someone to watch our 2 dogs for the day and she was within our budget and took great care of Dragon and Goose. She sent us some pictures and updates throughout the day and we could tell they were having a blast! Will definitely be using Lori again if we ever go out of town for the day or overnight. (:
I was very satisfied with Lori's services. I had a last minute request and she was very accommodating and flexible with everything. My dog was very happy there, and she continuously updated me on him by checking in and sending pictures.

I definitely recommend her services and will be leaving my dog there again.
I couldn't be happier with the job Lori did with my pups. Not only was she super flexible with dates and times, but she made me feel very comfortable with leaving my dogs there. Both dogs came back acting as if I never left. I would definitely recommend Lori's services to anyone!
Spectacular hosts! (Plural, as I'm including Bailey, Lori's dog.) Faced with an extremely large and fairly demanding dog, Lori was gracious, warm, friendly, and made me feel instantly at ease. I should mention that my profession entails discovering exceptional dog-friendly professionals around the country, so my standards are significantly higher than average. Count my five stars as fifteen stars - and by all means book a stay with Lori!
