About Lauren

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

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.).

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. You can also learn more about us on our website at: http://www.woofknox.com.

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 both absolutely amazing!!!!! I seriously couldn't have been any happier with having booked with them. Their dogs were so friendly, too.

Not gonna lie, after I met them and dropped Cavi off, my mind was at ease and I wasn't worried in the slightest about her (am I a terrible human to admit this?! lol). Regardless, they kept me updated through texts and photos and surprisingly Cavi looked so happy in each of the pics! (She usually has chronic sad-puppy face so that says a lot!)

To top it off, when I picked her up she was so consumed with playing with the other dogs that I don't even think she noticed me.

As long as Cavi didn't overstay her welcome, I'm going to stick with Lauren & Wouter as our Knoxville hosts from here on out :-D I highly recommend others do the same.
Lauren and her husband were amazing. This was the first time we had ever left our dog with someone and they totally out our mind at ease. We received a daily text with a cute picture or video letting us know that Cotton was happy and having a great time. Lauren and her husband have two other dogs so Cotton even had some good socialization, they all seemed to do great. I would highly recommend Lauren's family as a host.
Lauren and Wouter were great and so sweet to our new puppy! This was our first time using DogVacay and it was excellent. On-site reservations and payment were easy. Lauren and Wouter replied right away, sent adorable pictures of the walks they took, and we picked up a happy puppy!
