About Lauren

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I have had dogs our whole lives and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way. We currently have two adorable, playful, fun loving pups ( they are a black lab and mini aussie) who are looking to make friends and have slumber parties with your pup. Max and Bentley have experience playing with dogs of many different sizes and love to play. My husband and I work opposite shifts so it would be rare your pup would be left alone. We have a lovely fenced in yard for your dog to run around in and even the occasional squirrel for them to chase. I am happy to take multiple dogs from the same family but any overnight guests will require a meet and greet, just to make sure everyone gets along. We have a large, open house that your pup will have full reign to play in and they are allowed on the furniture when they need a nice, relaxing nap. A typical day is going for a walk or going to the dog park, tanning in the yard, playing fetch, and having the option of going in and out of the house when they please. (Will only have access to the yard when someone is home) The only restriction I have is that your dog is potty trained and is dog friendly.

Lauren is an amazing host! Sal has visited her twice now and it is clear he has enjoyed himself each time. Lauren is great about sending pictures, which brings such smiles to our faces. She also has a great house for dogs and even a few of her own for company.

We love that we have found her to take care of our baby!

Loved getting the text and email messages. Our old dog can be opinionated so it was nice to hear that he was getting along just fine. We will definitely leave him with Lauren again.
Lauren is awesome! She is very friendly and great with our dog. We feel very comfortable leaving our dog with her, and we can tell that our dog seems comfortable, too. Lauren is our go-to when we need a dog sitter- she's great!
Lauren was an awesome host for our three babies! We were getting married at a house in the hills of Livermore and couldn't not have pets on he property (except to be a part of our wedding ceremony). Lauren
Lauren did a great job of making me at ease while she cared for my two, slightly aging, chihuahuas. She sent pictures, kept me updated and make me feel relaxed that they were in good hands. I'd absolutely use her again and really appreciate that I've got a service like this to count on.

Lauren and her husband were so great and loving to Charlie! I definitely recommend them =)
Lauren was great! She took amazing care of our baby and sent sweet photos of him enjoying his vacation. A definite recommend!
This was my first time using DogVacay. I was assigned Lauren A. to watch & care for my. German Sheperd puppy. Lauren was in constant contact and sent pictures of my puppy . Lauren's home is perfectly set-up to dog sit
I was thrilled with the care and service that Lauren and her husband showed our dog, Scooby, who "lived" with them for 20 days while we travelled in Africa. It was his first visit with this family and the longest time (by far) that he's been away from us. Lauren made sure we had a long meet and greet and that Scooby would be a good fit with their two dogs. She made sure Scooby was content and settled before I left and she texted me daily photos and updates. Lauren was flexible with pick up/drop off times and Scooby was happy, relaxed, and clean after his summer vacation with at their home.

My dog was so happy at Lauren's he did not even want to get in the car to leave!
Lauren is obviously a "dog-lover". She was flexible enough to be able to extend the reservation when my plans changed, which was extremely helpful. My dog was immediately comfortable with her and her home. She has a big open space inside her home and a fully fenced yard, so there is plenty of room and no worries about dog activities. We enjoyed getting the daily photos of our pooch, which helped us to know she was ok while we were away. I highly recommend Lauren, she was great!

We had just recently moved to the Pleasanton area when I needed to try and find someone to watch my dog. I feel very lucky to have found Lauren. My dog is sweet but shy and can be skittish and timid around new people. Lauren had no problem taking him and my dog warmed up to her within a day. Towards the middle of the stay he was even sleeping in their room. My dog loved being around Lauren's dogs and it helped him to feel comfortable. We were gone a week and Lauren sent regular updates and pictures which we really appreciated. We picked up a happy tired dog. I highly recommend Lauren.

Lauren, her husband, and a two fur babies were great hosts for my 10-year old Yorkie. They took very good care of him, played with him, and took him on walks. Lauren took pictures and sent me updates about his stay. He came home exhausted from playing so hard, and happy to see us. Lauren and her family were easy to coordinate meet-and-greets, drop-off, and pick-up times. They were very flexible and response quickly. I would definitely have my fur baby stay with them again, and would recommend them to friends and family.

great host and quick in replies
Lauren and Stephen were great. They were flexible, communicated well, and made me feel at easy leaving our dog Ray for a few days. I'll use them again!
My senior dog did great with Lauren. She administered her medication keeping my dog healthy and happy. Lauren also sent several updates which I found reassuring knowing everything was going well. My dog returned home and was doing great after the terrific care she had with Lauren. Excellent experience and I would highly recommend Lauren for anyone wanting to board their dog.

My dog had a wonderful time playing at Laura's house. She came home fully exhausted from all the puppy play, it was great to see a high energy dog so tired and I know she lied every minute of it. I received pictures from Laura during my dog's visit. I can't wait to drop her off again.

This is my first time I want to leave my boarding experience.........:( I boarded my two dogs with Lauren during the memorial weekend. They only stayed one night with her. When I arrived to her home with my dogs, I didn't see her the whole time both time for picked them up and dropped them off ( her husband answered the door ) She texted and told me she was asleep after that.......that was okay....however, I was expecting during my dogvacay, I would receive her follow ups or some pictures to let me know their stay, but I didn't receive any pictures from her, or any texts. The only time she did was because after i texted her and asked her how they were doing, she just very short texted back said "they are doing great!"

I didn't feel any special or any reasons to come back to Lauren after this stay. All i wanted was she could follow up with me their stay or send me some pictures of them, so I knew how they were doing.........I don't think i want too much. Thanks.
