About Lauren

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Safety is priority for us! We live on 20 acres 10 minutes from Guntersville. As a child, I rescued more animals and insects that I can count. I have always had a soft spot for the voiceless. I am a supporter of the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation #THECOMPASSIONPROJECT and love to see people investing in a great cause. My husband and I like to love on new animals, make them comfortable and keep a watchful eye on them for their safety. We will do as the owners request with extra care and attention to detail. All Gods creatures are special to us and would be honored to be their temporary parents.

I wont talk about her care for animals, but her care for all things living. She is a phenomenal Occupational Therapist, she still holds hope in humanity and continues to spread kindness. To know her is everything. The woman that you can't help but to look up to, to strive to be like. This person is wholeheartedly selfless, they don't make them like her anymore.

Lauren and her family were great! Theodore lived them from his first sight and sniff. This was our first use of DogVacay and could not have been more pleased. We received daily updates , videos, photos and notes. Theodore is normally very stressed away from his family and home he showed no signs of stress. We love Ms Lauren's house it was like his first own little vacation.

Max loves this couple. And he is pretty picky. They take the best of care and update us regularly.
I was hesitant at first, then we met Lauren! What a blessing she was for our family vacation! Our (2) babies, Boris and Lu were so well cared for and loved by Lauren, we couldn't have asked for a better experience with www.dogvacay.com!!!
Daily updates and pictures to show us are fur babies were having a great time!
Thank you Lauren & dogvacay for such an amazing experience!
We will use Lauren and this service again!!

Always receptive and very easy to leave our pet with. Sends updates and pics and takes excellent care of him. So glad to find her thru this service.
As always Lauren was wonderful to work with!! Not only do we personally like Lauren, Kola absolutely loves to visit Ms. Lauren ! We greatly appreciate the picture and video updates that Lauren sends. We can always tell that Kola is happy and comfortable . When ever we go out of town, Lauren is always our first choice!

Three words: Lauren is awesome!
Kletus is our spoiled little baby and it was the first time for him ever to be away from home and I was worried how he would do, but Lauren gave him everything he needed and lots of love! All the pictures she send me gave me peace of mind and showed how happy Kletus was on his vacay. We will definitely use her services again and I would highly recommend her to anyone who has to find a temporary home for their fur baby.

What can I say about Lauren that hasn't already been said! We never had a sitter for our pets before so we were truly hesitant on using this service. However, we were truly impressed on how personable, and professional Lauren was!

While we were vacationing, we receive constant updates via photo's, short video's as well as texts. It truly made our vacation that much more relaxing to know that our baby was in great hands! Hopefully, we will be able to use Lauren's service in the very near future and beyond, if she accepts our baby back! Lol!

To be honest, all we talked about was how our dog was going to be so upset that we left her in someone else's care, but what we didn't expect, that after only one day, our child, our baby cried the moment we picked her up. You could tell that our dog truly enjoyed her stay because she was introduced to many different elements that she doesn't have at home. Thank you, Lauren for truly making our experience with DogVacay an awesome one! We will be contacting you very soon!

Lauren is amazing! Our pups love her and can't wait to return. She took great care of them, so much so that we never worried about them one bit while we were away. Thanks so much, Lauren!!
She is so kind and attentive. She gives updates periodically throughout the day. She enforces pet parents rules and basic training skills the puppy is learning. She is helpful and accommodating.
Could not have asked for anyone better! Our babies were so loved and taken such good care of!!! We were scared they wouldn't want to come home :))) we are so blessed to have found you!!!
Excellent. They are so good with our little guy and always go out of their way to please.
As always Lauren was fabulous!! We love getting the photo updates. Kola always has a great time with Mr.Wiggles. Thanks for allowing us to take some time away and have the peace of mind that Kola is being well taken care of!
Great as always! I hope she continues to do this as she is a very considerate and thoughtful host sending updates and texts and taking good care of our baby
Lauren took excellent care of Molly. She was super accommodating with drop-off and pick-up times. We got pictures and videos of Molly showing her having fun with Lauren's family and the other dogs there. Although we missed her, we did not worry about her care one bit!

Lauren and Her husband were the best pet parents! They took such good care of my baby Finn. They have a clean beautiful home with a spacious front and back yard with a few sweet dogs of their own. When I picked Finn up he looked like he was on a vacation. They were very pleasant and have a real passion for taking care of animals. I also really appreciated how they kept me updated with pics and videos. Even though I live 2 hrs away I would gladly make the drive to leave Finn with them again. If you're looking for a sitter and are a little nervous about who to leave your baby with, look no further, this is the best place.

As always, Lauren was great! This time when I brought him there he realized where he was and got all excited. I got pictures and videos the whole time and he was having so much fun!
My pup ally absolutely loved her stay with Lauren, she sent videos and pics regularly and ally looked nothing less than happy! I'm glad I chose Lauren she was very sweet and welcomed ally like she was her own! I definitely recommend her:)
As always , Kola was extremely well taken care of! She always has so much fun with Mrs. Lauren . We greatly appreciate the videos and photos that Lauren shares while we are away!
Tex obviously had fun while we were gone because he was one happy pup when I got him back! I got several picture updates of him playing and having a blast. He wil definitely be vacationing with Lauren again!
So thoughtful to send daily pics and communicate if any questions etc. Max was perfectly comfortable and most important we felt comfortable leaving him there. Would highly recommend!
Excellent! Lauren made Max feel right at home and sent us texts and pics each day so we could surely see he was happy. He is hard to warm up to people and he warmed up to them quickly. We will definitely use them again. We are very picky and felt very good about her safety measures and the comfort of the experience as did Max :)

Carly loved her stay with Lauren and Mr. Wiggles. Lauren loves dogs. And the whole family welcomed Carly as a regular member.
Tex enjoyed playing outside with Lauren and Mr. Wiggles! Lauren was very accommodating when it came to Tex's normal routine. He was all wags when I picked him up!
Lauren was an AMAZING host. She was kind and very easy to work with. She responded to emails promptly. We enjoyed receiving the daily photo updates of Kola. I highly recommend Lauren, and Kola will definitely be coming to "play" again. Thank you so much for making our trip truly stress free with not having to worry if Kola was in good hands.
