Laurie treats my dog and every dog who stays at Home Sweet Home like they are her own dogs. There is lots of playtime and socialization with other dogs. She (and her whole family) give them all the love and attention and care of home!May 20, 2020Home Away From Home's reply
Thank you Tarah!
I never have to worry when our dogs are with Home Away From Home! I can enjoy my vacation and when we return they are always calm and happy. I know they are given excellent care and with that we have piece of mind which is priceless!!May 22, 2020Home Away From Home's reply
Thank you! See you soon
My dog absolutely loves going to Home Away From Home! Laurie is great with him and sends pictures and videos. I feel very relaxed when I go away knowing my boy is well taken care of. Highly recommend!May 20, 2020Home Away From Home's reply
Thank you! We love your little man
We have been taking our dog Stella to stay at Laurie's house when we are out of town since she was 7 months old. Stella gets so excited when we pull up in front of her house... she plays all day with the other dogs (who are temperament-tested and very social) and Laurie even works on some manners with her. She has so much fun that when we bring her home, she sleeps for days! We trust Laurie and her family and know that our pup is cared for and loved on while we are away!!!Feb 27, 2014
Laurie and her family are simply the best. I was never one to board my dog but had to find an alternative to my in-laws for a trip and I’m so glad I found them a few years ago. Her family has a genuine love for animals and are extremely knowledgeable in how to care for, train, and love them. She takes great care to insure the dogs she watches play well with others so you know they aren’t left with aggressive playmates. All of the pets generally have free roam of her house, including their own basement play area and a gated/secure backyard and pool. She also often sends pictures and videos to let you know how your pet is doing while you’re away ~ a nice touch when you’re missing them. My dog is always so excited when I say we’re going to visit “Wally” (one of her dogs) and it’s truly a great time for her ~ they love her like she’s part of the family. I would highly recommend.May 20, 2020Home Away From Home's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Boarding for adult dogs is $50 per 24 hour period of time for one dog. Additional dogs from the same family are $45 per 24 hour period except between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends when there are no discounts.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?All prospective boarders come to my house for a meet and greet. We start by meeting the resident dogs and allowing their dog to look around and get familiar with our set up. If that goes well and all parties are happy we will introduce any boarding dogs who are here at the time. This is a busy, exciting playground that most dogs relish but it can be way too much activity for some dogs so we like to make sure they will be happy during their stay beforehand.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I specialize in correcting leash pullers and puppy daycare. I want to help you enjoy your dog because he is well behaved. A happy owner leads to a secure home for the dog.
