Lauren is amazing! She is so patient and loving to my greyhound. I felt very safe and secure leaving my dog with her while going across country. She sent consistent pictures and updates which were very comforting. I would recommend her 100%!

Lauren was extremely responsive and attentive. It's clear that she's spent a lot of time caring for dogs and knows what she's doing! Our golden retriever had a great time playing with the dogs staying with Lauren over the weekend. Bonus was we got tons of pictures!

Dog Mom Day Care and Sleepovers!

Hi There! My name is Lauren Garland, and I most certainly know more dogs than people! I've had extensive experience working with dogs, including about 3 years at dog day care facilities, over 10 years in private services (pet sitting, dog walks, etc.), raising two puppies of my own, and almost a year running my own day care. I have managed dog groups at other facilities that numbered up to 40! However, I do a ...

What Lauren would like to know about your dog

I would like to know how much socialization your dog has received, and how often they are in a pack environment (aka day care, dog park, friend’s houses with dogs, etc.) Because both my dogs are in the 45-55 lb range, breeds upwards of that size are best, but I can take big dog breed puppies (I've taken many before!) or dogs that at full grown are at least 35 lbs.

When Lauren watches your pet

When your pup stays with me, they really are entering a day care environment! This means I am home 24/7 to supervise the "pack", and they get their wiggles out with running round my large yard and playing with others, as opposed to going on outings and walks. But I guarantee they will still be plenty tuckered out! My shepherd Trixy has been known to tire out even the most wild of puppies! Once all dogs are sufficiently exhausted from play, we normally all cuddle together on the couch or I'll get on the floor with them while they nap. Then the cycle often starts again! While the dogs play, they are learning, too! I am able to foster appropriate pack behavior and play, and have helped a few crazy pups to learn how to better control their play. We also work on recall, sit, and eye contact during play! I also happen to have easily over 15 toys in my yard that the dogs love to play with, the most popular toys being ropes for epic tug of war games!!
