About Lauren & Chris

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome! Thanks for checking out our page!

*FEBRUARY 2017 UPDATE: We are moving!! We sold our condo and plan to close on a Bluff Park, AL house with a large, fenced in yard on February 24th. Until then, my parents have been so gracious to let us pupsit at their home in Greystone. They too have a large fenced in backyard. Due to these circumstances, we may cut back the amount/size of pups, but please still ask us!

Effective 11/4/2016, 10% of our proceeds go to local rescue shelters in the Birmingham area. Thank you for helping us support animals in need,

My husband and I are slightly dog obsessed and love sharing our home with your babies.

While we can keep your dogs during the week, weekends are ideal for us. We both work full time, so we can devote more time to your precious pups during the weekend. They are welcome to stay with us during the week, but during this time, we recommend only smaller breeds as they need less exercise.

If you do choose to book us during the week, just know that we do still come home during the day and walk the pups. In addition, we go to the dog park near our home every day. Oftentimes, we also go to my parent's house in Birmingham for the day who have a bigger yard and let the dogs play there.

We can't wait to welcome your babies in our home! We can guarantee they will be treated as one of our own.

Lauren and Chris were so great! They are our go to dog sitters when we are out of town! He had some travel complications and they were so willing to be flexible with us! Our dog absolutely loves going for a visit and we love seeing the pictures!
We had a wonderful experience our first time using DogVacay! Lauren and Chris were awesome and so easy to work with. Most importantly Skyler had a wonderful day with them and came home happy and tired!! Definitely will use Lauren and Chris again. She even made Skyler her own bandanna!!
Chris and Lauren were so easy to work with-quick to respond to messages and seemed to make Maggie part of their family. Great experience.
My doggie Lucy had a blast over the thanksgiving holiday. They treated her like their own, allowing her to play and relax freely. I even received several pictures over the week that made my day! Will use again!
Lauren and Chris are amazing and treat Harvey like he is their family!! I wouldn't pick anyone else to care for our Harvey while we are away!
We had a great experience with Lauren and Chris. Our dog, Kassy, LOVED her stay with them. We loved being kept updated on how she was doing with pictures and texts. Kassy was clearly kept safe and spoiled while she was in their care. We will definitely be booking again in the future!
Steve The Dog had a great time at Lauren and Chris' place. They are very caring dog owners and treated Steve like one of their own. He received lots of love and attention and plenty of exercise. Lauren threw a birthday party for Steve and it appears that a good time was had by everyone. They posted a lot of pictures of him too which is great. I highly recommend them and would not hesitate to use them in the future.
Lauren and Chris are the IDEAL doggy sitters! They take the best care of my Cooper. I know my dog is always safe and happy when he is under their care. Lauren provides frequent photos and videos of the pup adventures. Their dogs are well mannered and get along very well with my pup. This is my favorite dog sitting couple in Birmingham and always my first choice. They go above and beyond. Last time Lauren sent Coopy home with the cutest hand made bandana! They are always accommodating with pick up and drop off times too!

HIGHLY recommend.
Lauren and Chris took our puppy on very short notice! They were flexible with our early and late pick up and drop off times! They took our little guy to the dog park and even made him a little gift! He came home so tired and slept for 2 days! We will definitely use them again soon!
Lauren & Chris are absolutely awesome! My husband and I had them watch our 2 year old Saint Bernard, Slugger, and he loved it. From the moment I dropped Slugger off, they made him feel right at home. They sent pictures and kept us consistently updated with how everything was going. Chris & Lauren allowed us to enjoy our time away from our pup knowing that he was in excellent care! They also sent him home with the cutes homemade bandana!
Lauren and Chris are amazing! Bo gets so excited when we drop him off, and from the pictures and videos they send, he clearly always has a BLAST. They take the dogs out to play for hours at a time and he's definitely worn out when he comes home. Tired pup=happy pawrents. :)
Always the best and most accommodating hosts - thank you!
Lauren and Chris do a fantastic job caring for pups! They send frequent picture and video updates and answer all of my questions. They are super flexible about pick up and drop off times. They took Cooper to the park every day and gave him plenty of play time. Cooper loved spending time with their pups!
Best place I could ever ask for my dog to stay! Lauren & Chris treated her like she was their own. They sent so many pics of her which I loved seeing my baby girl enjoying her stay! Will definitely use again
Fantastic experience! I could tell that Lauren and Chris loved my sweet Sammy as their own. I enjoyed receiving daily pictures and reports so I could see all the fun my little guy was having - I will most definitely use them again! Thank you both!
Lauren and Chris went way beyond just watching our sweet Memphis. They treated him like one of their own and took him to the lake and gave him the love he gets at home. When pictures were sent, I'd never seen him so happy!! It was obvious he had a great time and loved being there. I can't say enough about Lauren and Chris. I'll be calling them on a regular basis❤️
Lauren & Chris took very good care of Samson. I think Samson enjoyed playing with Tanner & Hattie Belle a lot. Their home was very nice & they seem to genuinely love dogs. Samson plans to visit them again very soon.
Lauren and Chris are the best hosts! My pup had such a great time and they went out of their way to make her feel at home. We will definitely be coming back again!
Chris and Lauren were wonderful with our senior dog. I can tell they do this because they truly love dogs. Our dog is 13, so we were worried to leave her, but Lauren and Chris kept us at ease by sending us picture updates. We had a delayed flight getting home, and they were so accommodating with our last minute travel changes. We appreciate you meeting us halfway so we could get our pup back. I know our girl played her heart out with their dogs. Thank you for the great experience!
Lauren was fantastic! She was so sweet and accommodating and took wonderful care of my babies. I definitely plan to use her again!
I had to go out of town for a few days and didn't want to board my GSP "Trigger" at the vet. He is 5 months old and is full of energy and very loving. I didn't want to take the chance of keeping him at the vet and him being kept in the kennel for an extended period of time.

Lauren and her husband were awesome and took great care of Trigger while I was away. They took care of him just the way that I would and really made me feel comfortable with leaving my best buddy with them. Lauren sent me picture texts while I was away showing Trigger having a blast and being loved. I can't thank them enough for being so caring and taking such great care of him, I think he actually hated to leave them! haha. I highly recommend them to care for you animals if you need a place for them to stay. I will most definitely be booking with them again in the near future.
Lauren and her husband Chris have watched my sweet pups twice now and I couldn't be happier about my experience!!! My fiancé and I have been in the process of finding a home out of state and both trips that we took were a smooth process thanks to these two! My dogs had never been boarded before and had never stayed with anyone but family. If you are looking for someone to love and care for your dogs as if they are their own, then I strongly recommend using these two!!

Prepare for your pups to spoiled and feel right at home!!
Ruby loved staying with Lauren, her husband, and her two sweet dogs. I got daily photo updates and Ruby came home exhausted from playing everyday. We would absolutely love to have Ruby stay with Lauren again when we travel!
Chance loved his stay with Lauren. He came back to our home well behaved and better than when he left. I highly recommend Lauren and her husband for anyone who is in the market for a dog sitter.
Lauren and her husband were wonderful keeping my puppy for the weekend. Very flexible and gave him lots of attention. Will definitely use them again in the future!
Absolutely amazing! My dog can be a little shy and difficult but Lauren and her husband were outstanding! He returned home happy and even better than when we left him!
Our fury friend had the best time! Bubbles was completely worn out and we know well cared for by both her husband and Lauren. We will ALWAYS check with them when leaving town.
Lauren was super sweet and accommodating. I waited to the last minute to board Maxx and I ran across this website.I was. Little apprehensive about leaving him with someone that I had never met.Lauren was very open about how many dogs she was keeping and their daily schedule. I really loved the fact that she Kept dogs in her home.I will be contacting her in the future
