About Lauren E & Joe

We have a spacious, comfortable home with a large, completely fenced in back yard in the Miracle Mile area.

I am a music producer and dog owner/lover. I live with my girlfriend, Lauren, who is an avid hiker and also a dog lover.

I work out of my home studio and Lauren is in school, so one or both of us will be home at all times when your dog is staying with us. Our dog, Katy, is spayed, has all her shots, and gets along well with other dogs. We don't have any cats or other pets.

Katy usually spends her days listening to music in the studio with Joe, helping Lauren study, hanging out in our fenced in back yard, and going for walks with us around our quiet neighborhood 4+ times a day. We'd love to have your dog stay with us for the day or when you're out of town!

As always, so thankful we have Lauren & Joe (& Katy!) to watch Ollie when we are out of town.
I can't believe i forgot to leave a review for these amazing hosts. I left my active, energetic labrador in Lauren & Joe's caring hands for a weekend and came back to a smiling, exhausted boy who quite literally did not want to leave. They were communicative and friendly throughout and I have 100% trust in them to take care of him anytime. A+.
We are beyond happy to have found Lauren and Joe! We left our goldendoodle with this lovely couple when we went on vacation for two weeks, and we could not be happier with the experience. Their calm, warm, and cozy home made the perfect environment for our pup who loved staying there. Further, Lauren and Joe are both really great people and their dog Katy is super sweet. We trust Lauren and Joe to 100% and give them our warmest recommendations.
We've had Lauren and Joe watch our 2 dogs several times and they're really wonderful hosts. When we pull up to their house, the dogs get really excited and rush up to the door. You can tell that they take excellent care of them... and our pups are exhausted when we pick them up from all the walks/playing.

We absolutely recommend them!
Lauren & Joe took excellent care of our poodle puppy! It's clear that they are attentive to individual dog's needs and are communicative and responsive. Looking forward to having Bowie visit these guys when we leave town again.
Lauren and Joe were great hosts. They provided lots of pictures and updates on Alfie while we were away. We will definitely be using them again!
Our dog Bowies first stay with Lauren and Joe went swimmingly. Lauren and Joe really made it easy for me to have a worry free vacation and did their best to follow all my crazy dog mom instructions. Additionally, they are real people not a big company so when I was in a pinch, needing their help at the last minute, they really understood and helped me out.

Also, Bowie is a timid rescue but when I went to pick him up he was cuddling up with Joe like they were long lost friends. It feels good knowing your dog is happy and it was sure clear mine was with Lauren and Joe.

Thanks guys!
Lauren, Joe and Katey are great! We were looking for a welcoming place for Leo to stay at - Lauren and Joe's place was perfect. Leo loved playing with Katey and was comfortable enough in their home to just lounge around. It was comforting to know that he was in a calm environment since he likes to be lazy during the day - after a good play session of course. Lauren sent updates throughout the day and was kind enough to allow us to drop off Leo early in the morning. We will definitely book with Lauren, Joe and Katey again!
Our dog stayed with Lauren and Joe for 11 nights and we did not worry once since we knew they would take excellent care. Lauren sent us regular photos and updates and made sure our baby girl ate, played and felt loved. We were sad when we picked her up because I don't think she wanted to leave and come home with us!! Lauren and Joe are amazing in every way!! Thank you!!!
We have a rescue dog who is so sweet and goes everywhere with us but we cannot take her on our family vacation so I have been searching for someone to watch her that will take incredible care. I discovered this website and Lauren and both are a blessing. We met her last night for a trial play date and Lauren is beyond lovely, smart and sweet. Her home was terrific and her own dog was well behaved and groomed to perfection which says a lot about the incredible care Lauren takes. I am so relieved we found Lauren and so appreciative that she took such incredible care of our baby girl.
Fiona had a great time with Lauren and Joe. When we picked her up she was following Lauren around the house as though she didn't want to leave. Overall it was a great experience!
Lauren was wonderful! We are so glad to have found her. She was extremely flexible and worked with our schedule. Sheldon had a great time and did not want to leave. Katy is super friendly as well. Sheldon is already looking forward to his next vacay :-)
Lauren and Joe were great hosts for Bailey - She loved running around their back yard and came home tired & happy! They were very accommodating of our needs and sent pictures of Bailey to keep our minds at ease. We look forward to booking with them again!
Lauren and Joe are great! They take wonderful care of our little Frenchie and he loves spending the day with them. When I take him to their house, practically drags me across the lawn to get to their front door! He can't wait see them!
When my flight was delayed six hours, pushing back the time I could pick up my dog, Lauren was so sweet, reassuring me that the extra petsitting and changed schedule was fine. Her flexibility and kindness alleviated some of the anxiety of being stranded in airport-land. Thanks so much!!!
Fantastic hosts -- easy to get in touch with and totally sweet to our dog. Thanks again!
Lauren & Joe were great as always!
Our puppy has stayed with Lauren and Joe several times and always seems happy to go back! They have been responsive and flexible, we will definitely have Nala with them again.
I love Lauren and Joe! I travel a lot for work and it's great to have a second home for my dog! He loves it too and can't wait for the front door to open when I drop him off!
I love Lauren and Joe! The second time I dropped off my dog he couldn't wait to get to their door, and sadly, wasn't too excited to leave :) They have a nice clean house and a cute little backyard. Their dog is friendly and keeps my dog company while I'm away. I will use them again and again.
This was our second time booking with Lauren & Joe -- they did great and our two dogs seemed to be very happy there!
I'm glad to have come across Lauren and Joe! They took great care of Luna our lab/ husky mix for 3 nights and since this was our first time using dogvacay we were nervous about leaving her with someone we don't know, but with them we felt worry free since she was in great hands. They have a sweet dog named Katy who got along great with Luna. We also loved how they were flexible with pick up and drop off times. We will use them again if we have too!
Lauren and Joe took great care of our two pups -- both seemed happy after their stay and Lauren and Joe were very attentive to their needs! Got pictures and updates while I was away, which was nice too. I'll definitely book them again the next time we leave town!
We've used Lauren and Joe several times now.

Arlo drags us to the door and when we pick him up he is calm and happy.

They are attentive and responsible with Arlo and whenever we leave him here we can be away and not have any worries.

Highly recommend.
Lovely environment for dog. Enclosed back yard area. Caring and calm caretakers. They were very welcoming and patiently listened to all of our "this and that " about our dog. We told them how we treat Arlo (training commands - treats - games etc) and they did everything with him. And, icing on the cake - they have a wonderful dog who was very sweet and excellent with Arlo. Highly recommend :) We will be back many times for sure.
Oblio had a wonderful time at the Ruff-evelt. They have a great home and yard. Joe and Lauren were very accommodating and sent us updates with photos, so we knew Oblio was having a great vacation too. Katy was very sweet and playful
Definitely recommend their services
Joe and Lauren are amazing and their dog Katy is super friendly. They've been watching my little Benjamin during the day while I'm at work and Benjamin is always so happy to spend the day at their house. The house is perfect - with hardwood floors and a nice sized backyard with grass.
We are so happy to have Joe and Lauren nearby to take care of our dog, Oona, when we're away. We recommend them highly!

We've left Oona with them three times so far (once overnight) and found them to be kind, conscientious and caring dog lovers. After we made sure that our dog was a good match with theirs, a sweet Shiba-Lab mix, they took excellent care of her. They have a peaceful and comfortable home with a sunny back yard and plenty to do. Joe and Lauren take the dogs out for a walk frequently, and Oona is thoroughly tuckered out when we bring her back home. She now gets very excited to visit with them, which we plan to do often in the future.
