Wonderful sitter and wonderful experience! My fiancé and I never used the Rover app before but what a great first experience. I was really impressed with Lori's quick responses, updates, and puppy feedback. I was weary at first about sending our new pup off to a sitter we found online but after reading Lori's reviews, meeting Lori and her son, we both felt very comfortable about the puppy sitting. Just with the few minutes we ...

Lori is AMAZING!! She was so patient with my "special/difficult" dog and really went out of her way to make sure he was comfortable and that I was comfortable leaving for the week! I would highly recommend Lori to anyone looking to have their fur baby cared for!

Experienced, friendly, and loving!

Hi, everyone! I have worked in a variety of different settings with animals of all kinds, (but mostly dogs). I have worked as a professional dog trainer, humane educator, foster coordinator, animal caretaker, community outreach coordinator at a tri-state humane society, and in animal rescue for over 7 years. I have trained, walked, and pet sat dogs for over 8 years off and on for friends and relatives. Dogs know there are always treats in ...

What Lori would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences! All breed are welcome, but would like to know if he or she is good with other animals, (i.e. cats and dogs), and also children. I have one son, who is a year and a half old. He knows how to properly interact with dogs, (no tail pulling or rough housing from him), so not to worry!

Dogs can enjoy the comfy couch or laying on the back patio in the sun, after a great game of fetch or tag with my own dogs! We are relaxed, enjoy the shade and sun just as much as we enjoy being active and running in the fenced in backyard. We also go on daily walks, as well as play with the sprinkler on warm, sunny days.
