About Lauren

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are an active married couple 33/39 - one teaches at CCC and the other is a full-time student. We have our 17 year old, sweet, gentle, dog-loving nephew living with us, and our baby boy.

Our place is a 2-story condo: kitty is queen upstairs (gated off), but downstairs is open, bright and ready to welcome your pup! 24/7 care available depending on day/per request. I have experience as a vet tech assistant and worked at the Eugene animal shelter (LCAS) as staff/volunteer for about 2 years.We have also had our own dogs -- we are very experienced dog lovers and are accustomed to special needs. We love all breeds, but due to limited indoor and outdoor space, prefer to board small/medium breeds. Large breeds are welcome, but note we have no fenced yard and a small place. We're ok with big breeds if you're ok with our limitations (we do love to take long walks, rain or shine!).

We have NO other dogs, so dog-friendly dogs are not required, but your dog must be OK around babies. We are quiet and have a quiet, calm, clean home to share with your dog(s). Our neighborhood has sidewalks and we are very close to a wooded park area for delightful walks. We can customize quotes for multi-dog boarding needs or extended stays. Thanks for inquiring!

Chance was wonderful with our dog Gus. Gus stayed with Chance for one day, and loved him! Chance took Gus for walks, and played with him in the park. Chance also sent us lots of lovely photo updates. We would recommend Lauren and Chanse.
We were very happy with Lauren. Our dog was very relaxed and happy when we picked her up so we know she had a good visit. Thanks!
Very confusing to work with. Said they would be home most of the time but unresponsive to E-mails and phone call.
When I first met Lauren and Chance to do a meet and greet, I knew that Oakley would be really happy to spend a week with them. They spent a lot time with me as I talked through how we take care of him and what he needs. They asked good questions and were interested in getting to know Oakley. He relaxed with them really quickly and seemed very at home.

One of the things I really appreciated about Lauren and Chance was that they were genuinely excited to take care of Oakley and were looking forward to spending time with him. The fact that they looked forward to having him around meant a lot to me.

They took great care of Oakley on his visit. He is a big dog and requires a lot of exercise, and they definitely gave it to him. They took him walking and running and played with his toys with him and just generally gave him a marvelous week. In addition, since it was Thanksgiving week, they took him to Lauren's parents' house and let him spend a few days with them there, which was so fun for him as he loves to see new places.

When we came to pick him up, he was clearly very comfortable and happy with them. He came back very tired after his busy week, which I always appreciate when I'm busy trying to get re-settled in after being gone.

I would absolutely recommend Lauren and Chance to anyone wanting a great place for their dog to stay.
Lauren and Chance were fantastic. They watched my two dogs for 10 nights. They sent pictures during the stay to show how happy the dogs were. The dogs were super happy and healthy when we picked them up. I'm not even sure one of the dogs wanted to come home. :) I highly recommend them and will use them again.
Lauren and Chance were fantastic dog sitters! Our Jobie was kept very comfy and happy. Lauren even took the time to take a picture of him lounging with them in their living room....he was so happy :-)
This was a great place for our 11 year old Dachshund. Lauren had a calm house for Bella and gave her lots of cuddles! They were also very understanding about her special needs being an old dog, which was great! We felt confident that she was in great hands, and she had a great time. We would definitely bring our dog here again!
Lauren and Chance did a great job, were flexible with schedule and treated our dog like their own, which is the whole purpose of this site right? Would not hesitate to use again. They have parks and other dogtastic attractions near them.
