About Lauren

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

We are Lauren and Wouter - a newly-married young couple living in South Knoxville who love dogs. Wouter is a PhD student in nuclear engineering at UT and works from home, so your dog will have nearly 24/7 attention and care. We have always grown up with dogs and currently have two -- Copper (2 yr old leopard hound) and Max (8 yr old border collie) -- who would love another playmate. We take them to Sequoyah Hills park or on a short hike everyday, and your pup can join if you would like! We also provide plenty of potty breaks throughout the day.

Our house is on an acre and has plenty of room for pups to play. Dogs are welcome to make themselves at home and sleep wherever they are most comfortable (crate, floor, dog bed, etc.).

**Do you have multiple dogs? Extra doggie siblings can stay for 1/2 off -- just let us know this is what you want to do and we can get you a custom quote to book through.**

We're used to administering medication (Max has epilepsy and needs a daily pill himself), and are also used to dealing with senior doggie issues (although we do have one flight of stairs to get up, so keep that in mind).

If you have any questions before booking, please let us know! We will get back to you as soon as possible.

Please no dogs that aren't potty trained or aggressive dogs.

Lauren has taken care of our elderly dog, Willy, numerous times. She is excellent! She paid close attention to his individual needs -- giving medication several times a day, taking him on short walks, and making sure he was comfortable and happy the entire time. I highly recommend Lauren!

Lauren has taken care of my pup Duke several times while I've been out of the country! There's nothing more stressful than worrying about your dog's well-being while you're traveling, but with Lauren, that wasn't an issue. Each time I'm gone, I receive regular text and email updates on how Duke is doing - Lauren goes out of the way to take cute pictures of him, as well. Lauren also spoils Duke like crazy - he's lucky enough to go on several walks and hikes per day, and has a big yard to enjoy during his downtime. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Lauren and Wouter were exceptional! They took such great care of our pup and paid attention to every detail. They home and yard were spacious and allowed plenty of room to roam. They kept me updated with photos during my time away so that I felt completely comfortable my pup was getting the best care and attention. Plenty of great walks and entertainment. Highly recommend!!
