About Lorraine

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love animals and have had dogs and assorted pets all my life.

I live on a tree-lined neighborhood and my home sits on one and one-third acres. Exercise is provided with at least two walks a day. I, and my guest pups enjoy walking in the many beautiful parks that are in this area of Chester County and/or my neighborhood, your choice.
I am retired , which means I am able to provide your special pet with lots of attention while you are away.
Currently, I am without a pet and would love to host your dog(s) with all the love, care, and fun, they deserve in my home like they were my own.
My last dog was a Golden Retriver, and the best friend in the world.

*For the benefit of both the client and host, a Meet n Greet is required in most circumstances.
**Currently I limit the number of dogs to two (2) at a time and only host a third pup if from same family.
*** Yard not fenced in; use leads in yard (I am outside also) and at least two walks a day weather permitting.

This review is long overdue. Barney was lucky enough to stay with Lori for about 2 and 1/2 weeks, which is huge for my "Velcro Dog". Thanks to Lori he did great and even made friends with some other visiting dogs.
Finding Lori to take care of my shy rescue dog was better than winning any lottery. She's the absolute best!
Lori did a fantastic job with my dog. She took her on walks and outside in her yard. She even sent me a note when I picked up my telling me how my dog's week was. I would use her again.
We had an excellent experience with Lorraine watching our dog Bella. We highly recommend Lorraine to anyone looking for a dog sitter.
Lorraine did an excellent job caring for our dog Sydney! We never worried and she kept in touch daily with us, including writing us a note at the end of the visit summarizing Sydney's visit with her. We highly recommend her and would use her again.
Lorraine was wonderful to my boys!! I would highly recommend her!
Lorraine was wonderful with Breaker. He had great walks and also enjoyed the sun in her back yard.
Lorraine sent photo's every day and we could see he was happy and content. We were concerned he wouldn't want to come home! Highly recommend Lorraine and will definitely take Breaker back when we plan our next trip.
Thanks Lorraine
We have again taken advantage of Lorraine's superior services for our beloved Tago. She is simply the best and we have complete confidence in her care for our elderly furry friend.
Lorraine was EXCELLENT. She was extremely caring, loving and looked out for the best interest for our puppy's needs - couldn't ask for anything more from Dog Vacay. I highly recommend her and we were very lucky to have found her. She is a wonderful person too.
Barney and I think that 5 stars is not nearly a high enough rating for Lori. She's the absolute best!
Lorraine was so accommodating of our schedule and sweet with her pups. We were so happy to have found her!
Tucker had a wonderful first stay with Lorraine. Lorraine provided almost daily updates & pictures of Tucker by text helping us feel confident and secure in the knowledge that Tucker was content and well cared for.
Once again, Lori was an outstanding host for Cody. Right before our trip, Cody wasn't eating as much and seemed to have a little difficulty with movement. We alerted these issues to Lori when we dropped Cody off. She kept an eye on these things especially, and her updates thankfully reassured us that Cody was eating normally and moving well during his stay with her. It was such a relief to know that Cody was being looked after and well cared for while we were away. Lori is a wonderful dog-sitter!
Barney loves staying with Lori. As soon as we pulled up to the house, he bounded out of the car and ran right to her door. My getaways are always that much better knowing that Barney is with his best girlfriend, Lori.
Everyone will get tired of reading my rave reviews of Lori and her care! We leave our Tago with her regularly and regularly she is exemplary in her attention to him and in her communications with us. Lori is the BEST.
This was Cody's second stay with Lori, and it went just as well as the first. Email updates and photos reassured us that he was well and having a good time with his new doggie friends during the two weeks we were gone. Lori gave us another great summary of his stay with her when we returned. We've already booked Cody's third stay with Lori. I think that alone says it all.
My nervous dog Barney stayed with Lori for almost 3 weeks and he did great thanks to the TLC he always receives from Lori. She takes such good care of him that I can go away worry free knowing that he's in the best of hands. To be honest, Barney was a bit "mopey" when I brought him home - no doubt he was missing his favorite dog sitter, Lori.
Lorraine is our "go to" doggie host. Our elderly Tago is exceptionally comfortable with her and she is marvelous with him. We can leave him in her care and spend our vacation days worry free. Thank you, Lori!
We return to Lorraine for Maggie's dog vacay. Lorraine is wonderful with her and we know that is a challenge because Maggie is an alpha dog with an attitude! We feel so comfortable knowing our pup is in good hands with Lorraine--she is an extremely caring, compassionate host who knows all the ins and outs of doggie sitting. Couldn't ask for a better host!
Lorriane took great care of my German Shepherd, she was very accommodating, she even refunded $10 when we decided to pick her up early. She is a very sweet lady and my pup absolutely enjoyed her stay with Lorriane, although it was her first time.

She sent me pictures of my pup during the stay and a write up of all the activities they did together, which i really appreciate.

I highly recommend her!!
Lorraine gave Scout the best of care and I highly recommend her. She was pampered and spoiled just like at home and Scout thanks her for that !
The frequent updates kept me informed and the final written report on her stay was appreciated..... it's nice to know she was well behaved :)
Thanks !!
Tago had a nice long stay with Lorraine...her care was exemplary...as usual! She takes her responsibility very seriously and is both attentive and loving to her charges. You can't go wrong with Lorraine!
Maggie had her third "vacay" with Lorraine this week and she couldn't be happier. Our vacay was so relaxing knowing how Lorraine takes care of our pup. Maggie was very content there and she is a bit fussy so we are so happy to know that Lorraine's, home is Maggie's home for her time there. With all the updates from Lorraine, we were completely content while away. What a great service DogVacay provides--we have boarded our pup in kennels in the past but now we never have to put Maggie through that ordeal ever.
Lorraine hosted our pup as if she were her own. This is the 2nd time our Maggie stayed with Lorraine and we were again so pleased with her care. This was a long vacation, 18 days, so needless to say, we were very content with the fact that Lorraine was so kind in updating us, sending pictures, etc. What a pleasure to know our pup was in such good hands. In fact, we think Maggie misses Lorraine!
As always Lorraine was great. Pleasure to work with her. Will use her services next time.
My dog Barney tends to be glued to me, so finding the right dog sitter for him is not an easy task. Happily, I found Lori - she is very patient with him, gives him lots of TLC, and plays ball with him (over, and over, and over). Barney does great when he stays with Lori, and I have a carefree vacation.
My first time experience with Lori was perfect. She is kind and loving and was willing to work with my Lab's eccentricities. Will be happy to go back. Maija
Our dogs Rocky & Bella had a wonderful stay with Lorraine. During our meet and greet we were able to meet another guest dog and I felt comfortable that our pups would be in good hands. I was impressed that even on pick up day when we were picking up at noon, the pups still got a nice long walk that morning. They came home tired and happy. We will definitely use Lorraine again.
This was our first time using DogVacay and Lorraine. We could not have been any happier with the entire experience. From start to finish everything went very smoothly, even a change in schedule.

Lorraine was just the best. We felt Scooter was in very good hands and knew he would be well taken care of. We enjoyed getting the pictures and Scooter seemed really happy. I think she enjoyed him as well. She was caring and took really good care of him and we are very happy to have her on board when we need her again. Thanks!!!!
This is my second time using Lorraine. She was great. I can't say enough. She took great care of my pups and gave me daily updates! Thanks Lorraine!
Lorraine was a wonderful host for Maggie. She was very attentive on Maggie becoming accustomed to her home. They had great walks together. I would definitely have Maggie stay again.
Our elderly Labrador, Tago, had a fabulous Vacay with Lori. She was timely and informative in texting us with how he was doing and we could tell from photos, as well as when we picked him up, that he'd received the best of care. Attention and safety are paramount for us. Leaving our best friend in someone else's care always makes us a bit anxious, but Lori put us instantly at ease. She knows how special Tago is to us and we trust her. That is the highest compliment I can give.
I can't think of anything to add to all of the other wonderful reviews Lori has already received. Next vacation, I know where I want Maddie to be - with Lori!
Lorraine was great. Five stars is not enough! Max was in very good hands and I will not hesitate to ask her to take care of him.
We left our dog with Lori on a vacation and she was fantastic. Very experienced and loves animals! Very highly recommend!
My Golden Retriever stayed with Lori when I went on a weekend trip and it was a great experience all around. She responded quickly to my messages, read all of my detailed notes, sent me text & photo updates while I was away and took great care of my dog. I even got a typed note detailing his stay when he was picked up (my boyfriend picked him up). I could tell from her note she has a lot of experience caring for dogs. Lori lives pretty far away from me, but it's worth the drive to know my dog is being well cared for and having fun. Highly recommended. Thanks Lori!
We can't say enough about Lori...the best 2nd mother a dog could have! Lori is extremely considerate of owners as well as the guest pups. Her kindness is evident immediately-she responds quickly, gives daily updates if wanted, pictures include, and makes her guest feel at home. Our pup has an attitude but Lori worked wonders with her. We couldn't have had a great trip if we worried about our pup...so, needless to say, we had a wonderful time, free of worry about our pet. Thank you, Lori!
Wonderful experience!!! Lorraine was extremely attentive to details and all of Sammy's quirks! She knew just how to make Sammy happy, and sent us daily updates and pictures to ease our minds. Sammy came home happy and healthy which is a far cry from how he returned from the local "pet resort" (where he was shaking, lost his bark, and needed 3 days to recover). I would leave Sammy with Lorraine any time!!!!!!!!!!
Lorraine was great! I got text updates and phone calls. It was comforting knowing they were in good hands! I look forward to using her again for my July vacation:) Thanks
As usual, Barney had a great time with Lori. He gets very excited as we drive up to her house because he knows unlimited TLC is waiting for him.
Lorraine was the sweetest and the best host we could ask for! She had a very calming effect on our (sometimes) hyper little guy. She kept us updated with regular pictures and texts and even replied to questions we had. She was extremely accommodating to our sudden changes in travel plans as well. I cannot recommend her enough!
Lori was a great host! Aarcher had a great mini vacation and was very well cared for. Lori is totally caring with tons of unconditional love to share ... a true dog lover!!
Wonderful! Happy dogs.
I was so nervous about leaving my three dogs with someone we didn't know. I had always had family members watch my dogs while I was away. Sam, Tiger and Bailey came back very happy. I loved the fact that she sent me updates with pictures everyday to let me know how they were doing. She took exceptional care of my dogs and I am very pleased with Lorraine. I will definitely use her again in the future!
Lorraine is a fabulous find! She was very accommodating to our needs and provided excellent, ongoing communication throughout the planning process of booking our dog's stay. We had no reservations about leaving our dog with her. She is very loving with dogs and helped our dog ease into the transition of being away from "the pack". We would definitely look to use her services when we travel again.
She was awesome. Great with my dog, would use her again.
We love that Lori is so detail oriented, especially when your dog has special needs. Her pics and updates help us enjoy our vacations more, knowing how happy our dog is. And her written summary of your dog's entire stay is just above and beyond. So thankful to have found Lori!
This was the second time I've left my two dogs with Lorraine. The dogs seemed happy to see her; I received daily text updates; and they returned home in good shape. I'll definitely be scheduling with her again.
Our dog Cody stayed with Lorraine for 16 days. It was so reassuring to receive the daily updates and photos of Cody which Lorraine sent faithfully every day and sometimes more than once a day. We could tell that Cody was being well cared for. When we picked him up she gave us a wonderful written summary of his time with her. This was unexpected but much appreciated. She even followed up days later to check on a very minor ear ailment that arose at the end of Cody's stay. His ear was fine and I told her so, but this is just another example of her care and concern for our dog. I would have no hesitation to leave Cody with Lorraine again.
Highly recommend. My first time away from my miniature schnauzer for more than a night was more nerve wracking for me than it was for Fergus. He was well cared for, clearly loved Lorraine, and the daily updates/pictures were just what I needed to help us feel close.
When we contacted Lorraine to make reservations, it wasn't just the first time we used Dog Vacay, but the first time that we were ever going away without our dog--needless to say, I was nervous! However, even after the first five minutes of our meet and greet, I knew that we had nothing to worry about. Lorraine was so inviting and patient with Nellie as she explored her home. She was patient with me, too, and showed us around the doggy playroom, her backyard, explained her walk/park schedule, and asked everything she could to make sure Nellie would be comfortable and safe in her home. Then during our trip, Lorraine sent us regular updates and pictures of Nellie completely enjoying herself (playing napping, walking!) which allowed us to enjoy our trip even more. Nellie got just as much attention and affection with Lorraine as she gets at home and I wouldn't hesitate for one second to make a reservation with her again. Thank you, Lorraine! : )
My dog Cooper stayed with Lori for two nights. Cooper was well cared for and I felt very comfortable leaving him in her care. Lori explained everything clearly at a meet and greet. She also sent me a few text messages to tell me how Cooper was doing. I will be happy to board Cooper at Lori's again.
It was so nice to get daily pictures and updates of my two dogs when we were away. It was the first time I'd left them for more then two days and they were well taken care of.
My timid dog Barney, who is usually glued to my side, spent 2 nights with Lori. Thanks to Lori's TLC and understanding Barney did great.

Lori is a wonderful dog sitter who provides a home away from home for your dog. I am so pleased that Barney and I found her.
Penny so enjoyed her visit with Lorraine and we feel so fortunate to have found her!
My rescue dog Barney is a bit of a nervous guy - separation anxiety, etc. I decided the best approach for Barney was "small steps" so he spent a few hours with Lori yesterday to see how he would do.

Thanks to Lori's kindness and attention, Barney did just fine, so we'll pack his P.J.s for an overnight soon.
Lorraine watched my two dogs for a week. She was wonderful to text me a daily update and photo. They got plenty of walks and came home happy and healthy. She has a large yard and deck . . . and a well-kept house. I plan on using her services in the future.
Lorraine provided a wonderful home-away-from-home for my senior dog. She certainly gave him the royal treatment and he clearly enjoyed his stay with her. I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing my dog was happy and comfortable. Everything about our experience using Lorraine's dog hosting service was exceptional. She provided quick updates and photos of our dog having fun, which we really enjoyed while away. She was also very flexible and responsive to communications. I highly recommend Lorraine as a dog host!
Lorraine is just what a dog owner wants & needs -- a lady who just plain loves dogs. But on top of that, she is competent, courteous, and very accommodating. We will definitely use her services in the future and are delighted to recommend her without reservation.
I would definitely recommend Lorraine to watch your dog. She is a huge dog lover and you can tell she will love your dog like her own. She was very thorough during our meet and greet and I had no doubt she would take wonderful care of our 75lb Boxer while we were away. Lorraine sent us photos and notes to let us know how she was doing. Knowing our dog was in such good hands, made our vacation stress-free. I will definitely be using Lorraine again and recommend others do the same. You won't be disappointed.
Lorraine is a saint! I am thrilled with the care Annie and Bella got while I was away. She promised to love them and she did! Lorraine kept me posted daily with pictures which I loved. She was able to care for my easy going Cavalier AND my very active lab. I was able to enjoy my time away knowing my pups were happy!!! I highly recommend Lorraine!
