About Lauren

9 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 originally from South Africa, and is currently a PhD student in nuclear engineering at UT who works from home, so your dog will have nearly 24/7 attention and care. Lauren is originally from Colorado and works in advertising at a local agency. We have always grown up with dogs and currently have two -- Copper (2 yr old catahoula) and Max (9 yr old border collie) -- who would love another playmate. We take them to Sequoyah Hills park or on a short hike at Ijams Nature Center, House Mtn, or another nearby trail everyday, and your pup can join! 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, sofa, dog bed, etc.). Our home is all natural -- we do not use dangerous chemicals or cleaners, and we only serve high-quality organic treats.

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!** Note that our calendar may sometimes show that we are booked, when we actually could have availability later in the day, depending on when doggies are coming and going. If you have any questions about our schedule, don't hesitate to get in touch!

You can learn more about us at: http://www.woofknox.com.

-- Our Preferences --
Please no dogs that aren't potty trained or aggressive dogs. Current vaccinations (rabies, distemper/parvo, bordatella) and flea/tick prevention are required for all bookings to ensure the health of all of our guests.

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 is amazing! We get awesome videos and photos of our dog having a blast at dog parks throughout her stay. We love it!
Great! They sent lots of pictures/videos. It looked like Julius and Copper became good friends.
Lauren was WONDERFUL! She picked up our pup from my apartment while I was away and was very professional! Great communication! Thanks again Lauren!
