My dogs love staying with Lori! Lori is always willing to work with our hectic work and vacation schedules and we love that she sends photos and updates during our pet's stay with her. We moved farther away but we make the extra drive just for Lori!

Thank you so much for the lovely review, Leah! We have enjoyed hosting Penny and Zoey over the years. We ...

Lori was well organized and had a great fenced in yard for the dogs. She was able to accommodate the needs of our dog and sent us pictures everyday of him. When we picked him up he was a happy boy!

Your dog will feel right at home!

I have had dogs all my life. I left my career in real estate to become a full-time dog walker/sitter. I find the care of pets to be extremely rewarding. I am quite experienced with all breeds and ages of dogs. I have a 6 year old German Shorthair Pointer that loves to fetch balls and catch frisbees. If you decide to use my pet care services you can specify your dogs particular needs and ...

What Lori would like to know about your dog

I would find it helpful to know your pets food schedule, social skills, energy level, and sleeping conditions. I find each breed of dog has their unique and special qualities. I do require your dog to be housebroken and up to date with all shots (Rabies, DA2LPP, Bordatella, Leptospirosis, Negative Fecal Test w/in 1 year, and be currently on flea/tick preventative). You can either send me the proof of shots before the booking or bring along in person to our meet and greet. I do have a special puppy rate that takes into account that potty training is in the process. Puppies get let out almost hourly and are rewarded when they do their business outside. Please do not neglect to inform me if your dog is not spayed or neutered, barks excessively or exhibits aggressive behavior as this may require special care and accomodations. All dogs I care for must feel safe and to keep peace with my family and neighbors the more information that is shared the better your dogs stay will be at my home. Lastly, please understand that my rate is for a 24-hour period. If you drop off at 8am I expect you to pick up by approximately 8am the next day (each overnight is considered 24 hours). A 1/2 day fee will be charged if picking up past 24 hours ($18 for first dog, $15 for second dog). Any extra time will need to be discussed and agreed upon at my discretion. We allow drop offs and pick ups between the hours of 6am and 6pm. We get up early so appreciate your understanding that we like to 'close shop" at 6pm to allow us ample time to get a bite to eat and wind down our evening.

When Lori watches your pet

We have an enormous back yard so I rarely walk dogs while they are in my care. However, if this is important to you, we can discuss the your particular dogs needs at our meet & greet.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
You will need to update me on what your dog is accustomed to with regard to sleeping. Some prefer their crate while others like to sleep on the floor. I will try to accommodate your pets sleep routine to the best of my ability.

Time I'll spend with your dog
A typical dog walk is 20-30 minutes. Your pet will be treated as a part of our family while staying at our home. I am home full-time with the exception of an occasional dog walk, errand, etc. My husband is also home full-time so I can say with confidence your dog/dogs will be under constant supervision.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Typically a dog visit at your home is 20-30 minutes. I have found that 20 minutes is an adequate amount of time to get moving and for most pets to take care of their business. We can discuss your dogs particular needs at our meet and greet.

Extra house-sitting services
I am experienced in pet sitting and vacation care if necessary. Depending what is needed there may be a minimal charge for the added time and labor involved. Additionally, Holidays, weekends and anytime outside the Monday to Friday lunchtime hours incurs a $5/visit additional fee.
