About Taylor

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Taylor and I am a huge dog lover that has been fortunate enough to have had a life surrounded by pups! Growing up, my family had between 4-6 dogs (and cats) at any given time. Currently, we have a goofy lab mix named Hank. He is a loveable guy and good with other dogs. We also foster and volunteer with a local rescue group. We recently lost our sweet senior girl and our looking to open our home to other pets that we can love on when their people are away! Our home in North Raleigh has a good size front and backyard and plenty of room inside for a few extra furry friends. We love taking walks and are close to the trail at Lake Lynn that we visit frequently. If your fur babies like walks, toys and treats, this is the place for them to stay!

Sophie loved Taylor's Dog Homestay! Taylor sent me photos so I knew she was happy. So happy she jumped in bed with them! Now that's love..big thanks for loving on my girl. And their handsome Hank was very gracious in sharing his space. Will definitely be back.
Scout loves going on her DogVays! Taylor and her family are great. They provide pictures of how your fur baby is doing and Scout is always running around their backyard or snuggled up on the couch. She comes home happy and tired from playing with all her friends. Scout has spent 2 vacations here and we wouldn't consider anywhere else!
This was my first time using DogVacay, and I had a great experience with Taylor! She was very flexible in drop off/pick up times, and sent plenty of updates to let me know how my dog was doing! Will definitely plan to use Taylor again next time!
Our two dogs made themselves at home with Taylor and her family! Taylor and her husband took great care of them!
Excellent first time experience with dogvacay.com and Taylor- we will absolutely do this next time!
Taylor was awesome! My boy seemed have had a wonderful time with Taylor and her family. I've used DogVacay quite a lot. Dami sometimes got back home with a little bit unusual aggressive and alert mind. But the staying at Taylor's home was obviously totally different. I think he got a lot of pleasure and ease. He was home friendly and sweet as usual. I'll definitely recommend Taylor with anyone.
Tucker had a wonderful visit with Taylor, Hank and family. Tucker had lots of space to wonder around with Hank. Nice and quiet, situated in cul de sac, no worries of traffic. Taylor is very easy to work with. Since my wife and I were returning late from our trip I made arrangements to have Taylor drop Tucker off at her convenience, which worked out perfectly for both of us. Tucker's looking forward to his next stay to bring in the new year!
Michael & Taylor were great. Kept us posted with pictures and messages. Drop off and pick up were smooth. Cheyenne seemed to have had a much better time than had she been boarded at a vet!
Taylor was fantastic! Roxy had such a great time spending the weekend with her. I've already booked a second stay because I felt like roxy was in such good hands. And she sends pictures with updates to put my mind at ease. Thano you so much Taylor!!
Our sweet pup really enjoyed his weekend with Taylor. When we arrived he bounced right inside and didn't give us a second thought. She and her husband baked grain-free treats and let our Bowman play to his heart''s content with their dog Hank and the other canine guest they were hosting for the weekend. I suspect that the humans and Hank slept very well after their guests left. They even sent a baggie of treats home with us. We have truly found our place for Bowman when we are visiting in Raleigh and have nothing but the highest praise for a Taylor and her family.
Taylor was terrific. I was concerned since we were using new people to watch our dogs and we were leaving the country but they were terrific. I will not hesitate to use them again and would recommend them to anyone.
Taylor was awesome! She put up with my big hyper obnoxious pup for 4 days and handled it in stride. She was so thoughtful and sent us updates and photos! I think Hendrix had a blast and didn't want to come home! Thanks again Taylor!
My very sociable papillon seemed as pleased as I was with Taylor and her welcoming and upbeat home. Taylor was pleasant and professional to make arrangements with: I'm grateful she so graciously agreed to board my dog for an 8-night stay on short notice. Her photos and updates helped reassure me that my little guy was doing well, and he certainly seemed a happy camper when I picked him up. Thanks, y'all!
This was the best thing to do for our Luna! Taylor was tasked to try to keep a lab calm due to a torn ACL. Taming a lab is a chore! Luna required medicine daily and Taylor had no problem administering it. Luna is doing much better than when she arrived. Taylor did a great job.

Luna was acting a bit funny when we brought her home... I think she's already missing Taylor and Hank (her lab) :) I will definitely be using Taylor again and HIGHLY recommend her.
Taylor and Michael are awesome hosts!!! They made our pup feel right at home and even made homemade grain free treats for her! I don't think our dog wanted to come home! Will absolutely book again!
Thank you!
I want to say that Taylor did GREAT! My dog/child obviously enjoyed his time with Taylor and family. She constantly sent pics and updates and I know my dog and I could tell from the pics that he was very happy. She has a very nice property with plenty of yard space and that is an awesome advantage and I will definitely use Taylor again in the future. Highly recommended!!
She is awesome! My dog did have a good time in her house!
Taylor and her family were great! Very flexible in their meet and greet time and picking my dog Akino up after my flight got delayed. Taylor sent us some pictures so we knew he good and getting along. I'm pretty sure Akino loved his new friends too! Will definitely book with Taylor again if and when I need another dog vacation! Thanks!!
We just picked up our dog from a 10 day stay with Taylor and her husband and Hank! Beau apparently really enjoyed being with them because he whimpered almost the whole way home, apparently missing Hank and his family! Beau is 15 years old and not as communicative about his needs to go outside as he used to be and we appreciated that this did not seem to be a big problem for Taylor! We really appreciated her regular photo updates. Our vacation was really better because we knew that Beau was in good hands! Thank you very much!!
Taylor took wonderful care of our dog while we were out of town. She sent us pictures and updates of our dog everyday. It is so much nicer to go on vacation when you know your pup is being well taken care of.
Hank, Please thank your "parents" for a nice stay. . "Mine" were very comfortable w/ my stay there! Pawfully, Godfrey
