About Loree

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We already have something in common...A very strong love for our furbabies!! I will treat your dogs as I would my own I promise..If I was a dog this is where I would want to stay @ Gracie's Cottage! I work at home so your dog will never be left alone for more than an hour for an errand. We have a huge doggie Park type safe yard with two large trees for squirrel chasing, playing ball and general doggie play activities. Dogs get a daily walk to the park down the street and get daily doggie treats.
Please provide as much information as possible when contacting me..approximate drop off & pick up times it just saves messages of back and forth questions because sometimes that is a determining factor if I can accommodate your dog .Thanks :)

***Although some of my dog size preference falls into the MEDIUM size dogs in my listing I usually only go up to 25/30lbs as the lower end of the MEDIUM spectrum.*** I have real little ones here and a elderly disabled man that we can't risk him getting bowled over by an excited playful 40+ dog. For this reason I have changed my profile to not accept puppies any longer.

I AM AVAILABLE FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY ( Thanksgiving is booked) HOWEVER HOLIDAY FEES FOR THE CHRISTMAS WEEK ARE $50 PER NIGHT. That is Sat. Dec 24th-Sunday Jan 1st.

If you submit a new Reservation request please be sure that your dogs profile is completely filled out so I have details on your dog especially size and weight to help me to see if your dog is a fit for Gracie's cottage.
I Love to Have a Meet & Greets with my new clients I just reserve SUNDAYS for my personal & spiritual time and do not schedule Meet & Greets on that day.

Although only a year DogVacay I have been dog sitting for over 4 yrs and lots of references.

About Me: I have been taking care of dogs since I was 5yrs old and helped my mom raise puppies. So I have 30+ yrs experience with dog care. I have started a pet rescue organization in 1991 that is still in operation and I participate in Yorkie Rescue with a National Organization. I am the best Dog MOM you could ask for while you are away hands down. Ask my previous clients.....

Loree was wonderful with Cleo. In fact, I feel like Cleo has a second home with Loree. She posted pictures and videos of Cleo everyday and updated me on how she was doing. I will be leaving Cleo with Loree again whenever the need arises.
Loree was great!!! I knew from the moment I met her she would be a 'Mom away from Mom' for my fur baby! My Zoe has separation anxiety and she felt right at home at the cottage. Loree treats my baby just like she treats her own, which is awesome. For the first time, I honestly didn't worry about Zoe because I knew that whatever happened Loree could handle it. Not that I expected anything to happen, but one never knows...
Her home is cozy with lots of places for little dogs to curl up. Her yard is completely fenced for pottie breaks and she still takes everyone out for a walk in the nearby park. Pups have lots of options for sleeping arrangements, whatever makes them happy. Loree sent me updates and pictures while i was away and encouraged me to check in if it made me feel better.
I highly recommend Loree for your little babies. I love that she specializes in the smaller breeds as well!
Thanks Loree!!!

Loree J took care of our puppy Mia when we were gone for christmas vacation. It was our first time away from her so I was naturally nervous but Loree put me at ease. During the trip I could rest easy seeing the photos she sent and knowing that Mia was having a fun stay. This was a really positive experience. Thanks Loree!

Loree was amazing - I felt at ease knowing my fur babies were in good hands. She kept me up-to-date with how the dogs were doing and how they were adapting to her and her place. I even got fun updates about how my younger dog was chasing and playing with another dog she was watching. She was very responsive. Cooper and Snoopy had such a good time at her place. I would highly recommend her and will contact her for any needs in the future. :) 4 paws up!

Beautiful home, adorable little friendly doggie pals, my husband said when he dropped him off, there was all these little tails wagging and a lot of smelling going on. I don't think he missed me at all, she has three little dogs to play with. She sent adorable pictures of him, she is a very nice, motherly, and caring person. I would definitely use her services again. Thank you, Loree!

I can't thank Loree enough for taking such good care of my dog, Becky. I was called away for a family emergency and Loree took my dog in the next day. When I needed to extend the stay, Loree eased by fears about my dog's care so I could focus on my family. Becky came home happy and looked great! I highly recommend Loree. She really cares about our pets and their families.

Loree really saved the day! My usual dog sitter had an emergency and Loree was able to watch our dog in time for our vacation. She helped him get comfortable over the 3 day stay at her house, kept us updated with pictures, walked him daily and took great care of him. We will definitely use her again!

I've used Loree on 2 occasions and she is always amazing with my dog! He is older and has special needs, so it can be difficult finding the right sitter for him. As always, Loree takes him in and loves him like one of her own. I feel completely at ease when he is in her care. I highly recommend Loree to anyone looking for a great sitter.

Loree was very responsive in setting up times and figuring out details of the reservation. I got a lot of updates of Remy while I was away as well. Looked like she had a blast and a few additional dog friends to play with as well.
Loree was a great sitter! Her timing is flexible, she is responsive, and I could tell Daisy enjoyed her time at Loree's with her other dogs. She is very experienced with dogs and has no problem handling them. I will contact Loree again if I am ever out of town. :)

I wish I could give Loree J more than five stars❣
She went out of the way to take care of our dog Simba, who is a picky eater and has a sensitive stomach. She was constantly giving me updates on how he was doing wether he ate or not. Plus videos and pictures.

You are awesome Loree

My dog absolutely loved staying with Loree. The whole reservation went smooth, and my dog Toby loved playing with the other doggies and cuddling up with Loree. I hope she will have him again in the future
Loree took care of our little dog Roni for 2 weeks and did a great job. She updated us regularly which was very helpful and Roni loved her time there. We highly recommend Loree.
I immediately felt comfortable when I met Loree, and I knew my dogs felt the same way as I observed one leap on to the couch and sit atop the big pile of cushions! They will be visiting again, I have found a home away from home for the fur kids.
Loree took very good care of our Bubbles. She had to bring him twice to the vet for 2 different infections. Thanks to her, Bubbles was treated correctly.
You will love Loree!!!
Best place for you little ones!

You have no idea how anxious I was to leave my Yorkie for 2 weeks.
We had already left him last summer at a "pet hotel" and my vacation was horrible, I had to call every day, he stopped eating, etc.
This year we had a wonderful experience in dogvacay with Loree!! If you love your pet and want to have a peaceful vacation Loree is the best!!
She loves dogs and has all the experience in the world.
Loree pampered and spoiled my dog for two weeks. She even let him sleep on her bed as he does with me.
Of course we will be leaving him with Loree next time we travel!
We are so glad we found her!!
She is so loving, caring and dedicated.
She would be sending me constant updates and pictures of my little one. She even gave him a bath before we picked him up.
I recommend her 100%.

Thanks Loree for letting us enjoy our vacation knowing that Nico was in such good hands!

Loree is wonderful!!! We can't ask for more!!! She always takes very good care of my "kids." Very reliable and flexible! Thank you very much for keeping my kids clean.
So glad we found Loree on dogvacay. She is always so flexible and ready to make room for our little taffy, takes such good care of her, as well as sends us regular photo updates. We love Loree!
Both my dogs felt right at home with Loree. She treated them as if they were her own!!
Sando seemed to enjoy himself again as he got to know some new dogs! Loree truly enjoys dogs and they enjoy her as well!
I was very pleased with my experience with Loree. She was friendly and she was gracious about accommodating my time schedule. She took great care of my dog. If I need a dog sitter again, I would definitely request Loree. Many thanks!
From personal experience, Gracie's Cottage is indeed managed with love by Loree Jordan. Our two pugs, Ottis & Myla had an incredible and comfortable two week experience with Loree and we cannot be more appreciative. As with most pets, our two Pugs are very selective as to whom they bond with and where they stay, but after the first day they were excited to go back to Loree's each day and for the first time we did not have to chase them around the house getting them ready. We will use Loree whenever we need to leave Ottis & Myla for the day or overnight; it was comforting to know that our pets were taken care of as if they were Loree's own.

My pup can be a little nervous around new people, but Loree handled her perfectly. Sophie was jumping in bed for cuddles with Loree by the end of the short vacay! I will definitely book with Loree again.
Loree is trustworthy. She gave her best to meet the needs of my "Kids" and me. We are very satisfied!
Loree kept us updated with notes and pictures. She was very flexible and Mickey let us know he had a great visit!
Loree was excellent! We are glad we found her through DogVacay and would definitely leave our dog with her again.
Hi Loree-

Thank you for taking good care of sickly Kuma for such a long stay. You won't believe it, but his IBS is gone. He is still on the meds so hard to say what will happen when we gradually take him down, but he is back to normal again.

I hope everything is going well on your end, too. Still focused on my job search, so my visit to my family on the east coast is on hold until I get an offer. But I will be in touch and will def. use your services again. Top rated!!

Loree J was awesome. She was able to handle our last minute request. She seems to care for the dogs. Very helpful pic updates same night in addition to daily udpates, gave comfort to the kids. Otis seemed to enjoy his stay at Loree's and we look forward to many more of these. She did not mind in the least bit when Otis marked his territory on his arrival and her backyard s quite spacious. She knows how to make friends with the dogs as she added chicken to Otis's meal :-).

This was the third time my dog stayed with Loree. Once again, Loree exceeded all my expectations. She is a fantastic host!
Aunty Loree is the BEST!!! She has watched Bella for the 3rd time now and i can definitely tell Bella misses her when she comes back home. Loree is very good with updates and pics which helps tremendously when on vacation. I highly recommend her to EVERYONE!!!

Thank you so much Loree!!!

Loree was fantastic! It was our first time using Loree. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing Daisy was in good hands.
Great first time experience with dog vacay. I left my senior dog with Loree while we went on vacation for 10 days. Barney is an old dog now and needs a little extra TLC. Loree was great. She really listened to me explain his little quirks and "personalized" his care. She took great care of him!

Loree is THE BEST doggy sitter. Her house is very dog friendly with a nice backyard and she's totally a dog lover to the core. It was my first time going through dogvacay but Loree really made me feel at ease, went above and beyond making sure my dog was comfortable and happy while I was away. There was lots of communication throughout with pics and updates which made the entire experience extremely positive. I will surely use Loree again in the near future.

Loree is a fantastic host! She takes my dog, Molly, for walks in the neighborhood. She lets Molly play outside in her fenced in yard. Loree even lets Molly sleep in her bedroom! If you're looking for a home away from home for your dog, you MUST meet Loree. You'll be glad you did!!

Loree was great... She took care of our little guy like he was her own, he had a great stay there. I highly recommend Loree for any day or overnight stays!
Loree was great and our dog came back very happy. Thanks Loree!
It was like living your dog with a good friend. Loree was fantastic she took on board our 10 weeks old boxer "Bruno" for 8 days and even keep it for another extra 2 days without any complaints as consequence of our flight cancellations coming back from New York.

I felt she was really professional and caring with our little Bruno, she send us plenty of pictures and updates of him when We were away and reply all the messages really promptly.

Bruno was so happy when we saw him again. I can strongly recommend Loree if you are looking for a friendly and caring dog sitter.

Loree was great! My little dog Ruby immediately felt comfortable in her home. I knew Ruby had a good stay when I picked her up. After running over to me (at pick up) all excited and shaking, she then ran back to Loree to give her a snuggle before leaving. Ruby came home happy! Thanks for a great stay Loree!

Loree was a great host to our puppy on his first vacay! She communicated with us throughout his stay, and he had a blast.
Loree is great! She boards only a few small dogs at a time, so we feel comfortable boarding our little Taffy with her. Taffy was safe and happy with Loree, and we got frequent photo updates during our month long trip out of the country. We are happy to have found her.

Loree was just fantastic. This was Toby's second boarding experience, and the first over 3 days. He's usually nervous with strangers, but he was very happy at her house, and seemed to have really enjoyed the experience We would definitely recommend her and leave Toby with her again..

Loree is a professional and caring sitter.
I left my dog with her for 6 days. The first three days she didn't want to eat her food but Loree was so patient trying to feed her and finally on the 4th day she ate.
She threw up in her doggy bed and Loree was very sweet washing her bed for me.
As I was so worried because she wasn't eating, I wrote her more than twice a day and she always replied to me and sent me photos to make me feel more comfortable.
She is flexible with times to pick up and drop off.
Mini (my dog), she liked Loree lots, I could see when I came to pick up her.
I'm so grateful to have found Loree.
For sure I will leave my dog with her again.
Thank you Loree.

Loree is such a find. I've been struggling with leaving Kuma in a kennel when I go away, and this is completely different. Her house is adorable and there are always other dogs for him to play with there. It really is a Dog Vacay for Kuma when I go on vacay, not a jailhouse experience anymore. Perfect. 5 stars.

Loree is a very professional and caring sitter. I am so grateful to have found such an awesome DogVacay sitter! Even before we had our Meet & Greet, I had a good feeling that we would be using her services on a regular basis. I've worked with multiple sitters and daycare/boarding places so I'm very particular about who watches my dog and the environment I'm leaving her in. A huge plus with Loree is that she is super flexible with pick up/drop off times. The resident dogs are very friendly too. We initially boarded our pup for the weekend while out of town. My fiancé and I loved getting the pictures and updates that Loree sent us. Now we started bringing Nymie to daycare at Loree's during the weekdays while we are at work. We will be boarding her again for the Christmas holiday. Our pup loves it at Loree's!

Loree was fantastic! This was Sass' 2nd stay with Loree and she couldn't have been more happy when I picked her up.

Sass started a dose of medication with her food since our last stay and Loree provided this to her easily.

Loree spends quite a lot of time playing with Sass in her backyard along with taking Sass to the local park. I couldn't be more pleased with the care Sass receives with Loree!

Loree is amazing!! Bella stayed with her for 6 days and had a blast. Loree sent us A LOT of updates and even though I missed my little girl so much, I knew that she was under good hands. Thank you so much for being so responsive and sweet. Bella will definitely stay with aunty Loree again when we set our next vacation.

Loree J. Is a wonderful dog sitter. She took care of our two pugs recently for ten days. She sent so many emails and photos that although we missed them, we weren't worried about them. She is very professional, and you can tell she loves what she does. We will not hesitate to leave our "kids" with her again.

My Yorkie Niah had a fantastic vacay with Loree. I was so pleased with everything on care for our baby. Sent us lots of adorable pictures of her and daily updates throughout her stay. She even gave her a nice bath.We are definitely coming back to her!! Thank you Loree you were amazing!

Loree is simply the best dogsitter you can find in the neighborhood. She is really patient and responsible for your little friend even before she takes over. During Mocha's stay, she definitely treated him as her own pet and sent over a lot of pictures. After the stay, she followed up to tell me what treats mocha loved and how was he doing in general.

Loree is also a very nice person, Mocha stayed with her for over 2 weeks in total with pretty complicated schedule. Loren was patient with all my request and scheduling challenges.

In general, I would strongly recommend Loree to all potential pet owners looking for a responsible, nice, and professional dogsitter.

I've used Loree twice now, once for a 5 day stay and the most recent for an overnight stay. I can't say enough good things about her! She welcomed by dog into her home and gave him lots of TLC. He is a special needs (older) dog, he requires medicine daily.Not only did she get him to take his medicine, but he also ate very well with her. He usually fights me so she must be super awesome at persuasion! I highly recommend Loree and completely trust her.She always sends me updates and includes a picture. Loree is the best!
Read More...
Thanks, Loree! Becky had a great night with Loree and her friends. Loree was so flexible with times for dropping off and picking up, which I really appreciate. Becky came home tired, so I know she had a good time. We'll be back again!
Loree and Polly hit it off from the get go. Polly was welcomed into Loree's home quickly. She had play time and wonderful walks to keep her busy. Polly will be back in October and during the Christmas holiday.thanks Loree
Once again our babies had a blast with Aunt Loree!! She does a great job!!! We highly recommend her!
Loree was amazing! She made me feel comfortable leaving Sass with her. My border collie was truly on a vacation! She was walked every day, had frisbee time (her favorite), and (judging by the photos Loree sent) received a ton of couch snuggles. Loree even asked permission for Sass to sleep on the bed with her which was very thoughtful and generous. Loree will take great care of your furry friend!

Loree is great. Our babies love going to her house. We would highly recommend her.
Sugar went to another vacay with Loree. I picked her up happy and calm. Looks like she has a good time with Loree. I would definitely use Loree's services again.
Loree's care for our puppy was wonderful! Sammy loved the company of Loree's own dogs and played all day. We were out of the country and Loree sent us several photos of Sammy at play and sleeping wearily. We would definitely use Loree again.
Loree is really PAWsome! During a Meet-n-Greet time she would evaluate with you any needs that you or your dog may have. During a dog vacay time, she is a lovely and trustful caregiver. I would trust her anytime and, when you trust someone, you can relax and concentrate on your other vacation priorities. I would definitely use her services again.

My dog, Molly, really enjoyed her stay with Loree. She got to play with lots of other dogs, she went for walks in a new neighborhood and she didn't have to sleep in her dog bed. Loree even washed Molly's halter!! I can't wait to take Molly to Loree's home again.
Read More...
A huge thank you to Loree!! It is obvious just how much she loves animals and how much they love her. Our senior pup was well cared for, happy and comfortable during a recent overnight stay. When I came to pick him up, he was very affectionate with Loree and gave her multiple "hugs" which showed me he'd enjoyed his stay. I would recommend Loree to anyone who is looking for a safe and caring sitter for their furry babies.
