About Lauren

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
About Us:
My (Lauren) personal background is filled with animal care experience. I have a bachelors degree in Animal Science, have volunteered in numerous shelters and animal-related organizations, have worked in a small animal veterinary office, and currently work one day per week at a "swanky" doggie daycare/boarding facility (my position here allows for very flexible hours, ensuring that there is plenty of time spent with your furry family member!). With this lifetime of experience, I have developed the ability to care for dogs of various breeds, activity levels, ages, and medical or behavioral concerns.
While Jawad was not raised with animals (except for a parrot), he has always loved them. When he was young he tried to sneak a husky puppy into his house and was hoping it'd go unnoticed by his mom...he was successful for about 2 weeks haha! Now he takes great care of Howard and Ares and is a bit of a softy about letting them snuggle on the couch with him. In the past year he has assisted me with walking and sitting dogs of all types...from a sweet, cuddly Japanese Chin, to a young, playful and not entirely potty trained puppy, to a rambunctious and rather large boxer mix. He's a natural!

Our Boys:
My pup Howard is the most relaxed and calm dog I know, and often gets along with dogs at the daycare/boarding facility that no other dog does. Ares is young and playful, but also very sweet and good with dogs of all ages, sizes, and temperaments.

Boarding/Daycare at our Place:
We live in a great loft apartment in East Atlanta near Grant Park. It was an auto shop that has now been renovated to create a unique, open living space perfect for pups to romp about in. For the less active, it is also of course furnished with plenty of cozy spots to snuggle up and nap. There is a small fenced in side yard, though we do tend to take most of our visitors for strolls to the nearby park!

*Howard, Ares, Jawad and I would be thrilled to host or care for your pets at our home or in the comfort of yours (in home overnight care is primarily handled by Lauren). We will be happy to provide as much attention, activities, snacks, and snuggles as possible!
