About Lory

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a veterinary technician, working hard and loving life raising my 3-year-old rescue puppy!

Currently, I am not boarding dogs in my home, but am open to pet sitting your dogs AND cats in your home, daily walks, and visits.

I am a veterinary technician with over 15 years of animal care experience so you can rest assured that all of your pup's health needs and concerns are well taken care of! My experience ranges from dogs, cats, and any other furred, feathered or hooved friend you may have! I have several veterinarians available a phone call away and years of experience to keep your pup happy!

My rates are listed as a starting rate within 5 miles of my home. My regular overnight rate to stay in your home 5 miles from my home (91342) is $45/night for 1 dog. I ALWAYS give a new client discount and a multi-night discount after 3 nights or more.

Puppies under 9 months of age have an additional fee of $10/night. If your pet needs any medications, I am fully capable of administering oral meds, as well as subcutaneous and intramuscular injections.

***SPECIAL NEEDS PETS (such as disabled, geriatric, epileptic, diabetic, recently out of surgery, etc) MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL FEES****

I offer multi-dog and extended stay (14 days or longer) discounts, and am always available for last minute bookings and will try to accommodate your needs in any way possible.

I also have a vast amount of experience with sensitive, fearful, or aggressive dogs that may have a hard time staying away from home. Please contact me for a meet and greet and we can discuss what is best for your furry family members needs. Vacays for aggressive pups may have an additional fee. Ask for a custom quote so we can find what works best!

I also do professional pet photography, please let me know if you would like to arrange a photo shoot for your dog during their vacay.

Meet and Greet info-

I require a meet and greet for every new family. Please let me know if you have any questions about our future meetings.

Responsible and knowledgeable about dogs, I will have the peace in mind while I'm away from my 15 year old dog. After having another couple of visits, all will be set for the coming trip.
Lory responded back to us promptly, got along wonderfully with our beloved dogs, and was responsible and respectful of our house. We are so pleased with her professional level of service that we already booked her for three more stays through DogVacay!

Lory was able to deal with a difficult dog.
We were going to be gone for a long day so we had Lory come to give Chester a walk & dinner. It's been a little while since Chester had seen Lory so Chester was so surprised to see her, at 1st not in a good way (remember Chester doesn't welcome you with a wagging tail & kisses). Since our last visit, Chester has serious health issues. Lory being the pack leader she is, 1st things 1st she got the leash & he was a happy camper from then on. It's comforting knowing Lory knows how to handle could be challenging situations, she's not afraid , & what a great perk...she's is the vet tech at out vet! We're lucky all the way around!

Lory was great. Our dog isn't the most friendly with people or other dogs, so needless to say we can't just have anyone watch him. We felt it best for someone to come into our home, as we did not want to put our dog's unfriendliness in a strangers home regardless of insurance coverage. Lory met with us 1st outside of our home & then came to our home right before we left, more for our sake as she was not afraid or timid. Our minds were at ease, our dog said he had a grand time with his new friend Lory & loved his walks. So happy we found a great petsitter. Thank you Lory! We will be calling you again :)

Lory is responsive and attentive. We needed a last minute reservation for our special needs dog and she was able to help with all he needs. Lory is responsive and most importantly our dog was happy when we go home.
Maggie, our golden retriever puppy, had the best time. Lory is terrific with dogs and cares for them as if they were her own!
Another great stay with Lory! I do feel better when we leave that Maggie will be very well taken care of in our absence! Thank you so much!!
Another fantastic stay about Lory - and I have forgotten to mention in previous reviews that Lory has been very flexible with drop offs and pick ups when our plane has been late, etc. I really appreciate that.
As always Daisy had a wonderful stay with Lory. We trust her 100% with Daisy.
LOVE Lory. She was one of the first to get on dogvacay and you can tell, compared to other dogsitters. She's really knowledgable, and the meet & greet is done at a neutral location so that your dog can meet her sweetheart Lupin. He's so well behaved--which is what really made us like her!

She gave us a lot of tips on our first dog ownership, and gave us details about what she could do with Toby during his stay. She worked on a lot of training with him (we paid for that to be tacked on) with regards to focusing and staying, and when he came home...he was actually much better behaved in those aspects. She sent us home with a lot of tips and he actually seemed cleaner than we dropped him off! Even though our dog had a little scuffle with Lupin over a bone, Lory knew exactly how to handle it and re-engage them. You can tell she loves and knows dogs...she even has helped with training advice after our stay.

THANKS for a relieving, trustworthy dog stay!! (And for improving our dog's behavior in just 1 weekend!)

Another great stay with Lory and I love getting picture updates from Lory and Daisy. Lory is also flexible with drop off and pick up times. THANKS!!!
She was wonderful. I would definitely use her again.
Lory was wonderful with our 8 yr old Golden Retriever. We met beforehand so our pup would "know" her and so we could chat about what each of us expected. She was very accommodating and responsive, texting and emailing with ques/answers and even sent pictures while we were away!! My Maggie was happy and healthy when we went to pick her up and we will board with Lory again!!!

Daisy had a great time with Lory on her first stay. Lory sent me text pictures and updates to let me know how Daisy was doing. THANKS
Lory is just fantastic with our babies!! She treats them like they are her own and sends daily pictures and updates! I feel safe leaving them with her....and she is very convenient with location and flexible with drop off / pick up times!!! Will definitely use her again.

The girls love her and she is extremely flexible with her drop off and pick up times. I also love the fact that she works at a Veterinarian's office, makes me feel safe.
Lory far exceeded my expectations! Not only was she incredibly responsive, and extremely professional, but my dog came home in better condition than when we left him with her. Since we were out of the country and would not have cell phone access, Lory called us during our trip at our hotel to let us know how our dog was doing. I have already spoken to her about watching him for our next trip! I hope we will have Lory for a long time to watch our dog because we don't trust anyone else!

Lory was great with our Shih Tzu. We had never left her with anyone and I had no worries leaving her with Lory. The daily updates were awesome!
Lory is a very nice person a dog lover. Samy was happy when we pick up him. We enjoyed very much watching the video and the photos beacuse we saw that he was having a great time. Thanks Lory!!!
We were very pleased with Lory's service. With her vet tech background, you can tell she knows a lot about dogs and animals in general, making us feel very comfortable leaving ours with her. She sent photo updates every day and was very responsive. She did a great job and we will definitely use her services again.

It was a pleasure to meet Lory and to introduce our beloved pet to her. She is the ultimate professional and animal lover and after our first meet and greet we did not hesitate to leave our pup in Lory's care for 13 days. She sent us regular updates and to our delight she also took great photos of our dog! He loved playing with her pup so we felt even more reassured that he would have great care but also fun playing with Ginny. We will not hesitate to board our pup with Lory and her family again. Thanks DogVacay for leading us to Lory V.

Bonz had a great time at Lory's house. She was very accommodating to our last minute request. Bonz loved playing with Ginny and was really really tired when we brought him home. He had a wonderful vacation and so did we, knowing that he was in very good hand. Thanks Lory.

Lory took such good care of my dog! Lory is very kind and also very smart about dogs. I knew that my dog would be in a happy and very safe setting while I was gone. I would definitely ask Lory to keep my dog again and HIGHLY recommend her!
This was our first time ever leaving our girls with someone other than friends or family. We have never kenneled our girls either, so I was hesitant even leaving them with someone that I was not familiar with. Lory was great and flexible with being able to meet me and the girls as well as her times and dates that she had available to watch the girls. I felt very comfortable with her due to her background in veterinary assistant as well as dog grooming. She seemed to be very comfortable around dogs which put me at ease. I was also happy to hear that she would let our little girls sleep in bed with her. Lory was very quick to respond when I would text her to see how the girls were doing. I would definitely recommend her!! And will be using her again the next time we go out of town for a couple of days. Thanks again Lory!!! The girls miss you all..... :-)
