Lauren and Bernie were amazing! My chocolate lab has never been boarded in her 12.5 years and I was in a bind leading up to the holidays, but would have chosen to cancel my trip before putting her in a kennel. I learned of Rover, took a chance reaching out to Lauren and within moments had a response, met with the pooches hours later and just had a great feeling. Dropped Sadi off 2 ...

Loves walks as much as dogs!

Hello friends! My name is Lauren, and I grew up with dogs my whole life. I lost my boy of 8 years (Brian, the yellow lab mix in my profile) and now there’s a sweet new pup in my life named Bernie (the goofy blue Merle Aussie). I look forward to meeting your dogs and/or cats and I will treat them as though they are my own- and Bernie cannot wait to play ...

What Lauren would like to know about your dog

I have some experience dealing with dog-aggressive/leash aggressive (not people aggressive) dogs; I will never approach another dog without permission or assessing the dynamics/body language of the dogs. Please advise me if he/she has any aggression issues, or if he/she requires special care. I love large dogs, but all sizes are welcome!

When Lauren watches your pet

I live a couple blocks from the Congressional Cemetery, so for an additional 10 bucks a day I can take your pup there to run free (unless you are a member- I am on the waiting list)! (I may be able to sneak in during late night hours too) We will go for long walks or short runs, and if your pup is good at recall we can go to the Anacostia park near RFK to play frisbee off-leash. I sometimes bike with Bernie over there- it’s a great way to tire a high energy dog!
