A few testimonials about our dog day care and dog boarding services.


"Betsy and Lilly, our three and-a-half year old Lab-Akita twins, have been regulars at ?Camp Lora?[Button Meadow Dog Camp] for some time and have come to think of her as family.  The confidence we have in Lora?s dog management skills and her knowledge of animal behavior give us confidence that we can leave our dogs in her care and be worry free.  We whole-heartedly recommend [Button Meadow Dog Camp] as a skilled pet sitter[s], whether the dog in question is large or small."



- Kate and Josh Rosenblatt, Easthampton


"[Button Meadow's] dog day care is like family day care for children ? the small group allows her to learn and meet each dog?s individual needs.  My dogs greet her eagerly in the morning and sometimes try to climb back into her van at night, so I know they are happy and comfortable there!"

 - Julie Zuckman, Florence

"[Button Meadow Dog Camp] has been pet sitting for our animal family members for several years now.  [Lora has]  always been honest, caring, professional and reliable.  I'm pretty sure our animals get better care when we're away than when we're home!"

- Kathy Elsea, Florence


 "I think I was one of [A Parade Of Pets' now Button Meadow Dog Camp's] first customers 6 or so years ago now.  I was impressed by [Lora's] thoroughness,  her sense of responsibility and her love of animals.  She initially cared for my loveable Siamese cat who had asthma.  Lora was wonderful with her medications and general care.  I appreciated her heartfelt shared sorrow when my beloved kitty passed away.  She has continued on with me and my new persnickity but also ultimately loveable Siamese cat and is putting great effort into forming a relationship with her despite my kitty's tendency to turn up her nose when she realizes it is not me coming thru the door.  It's always a great relief to feel confident about leaving my cherished pet in Lora's care when I go away."

- Molly Goodwin, Easthampton


"I had heard about ?Miss Lora? from my daughter a few years ago.  [A Parade Of Pets, now Button Meadow Dog Camp] was the only[service] she would entrust her 80 pound Sophie with.  Lora dog sits Sophie ? who at times requires many medications ? at both my daughter?s home and at her doggie day care for extended periods of time. The confidence shown by my daughter and daughter-in-law has been unfaltering.  When I moved to Northampton a year ago, I took a job requiring me to travel during the week.  Without hesitation, I asked [Button Meadow Dog Camp] to dog sit my Noah at my home and/or at her day care center.  She also comes by to feed and love my cat Odie while I am gone.  The confidence and trust I have in [Button Meadow Dog Camp] goes above and beyond ? just as Lora does!!  My biggest testament to ?Miss Lora? is that fact that my Noah is as dedicated and in love with her as he is with me [well, almost?. I want to believe!!]  Every morning he wakes up, runs to the front window and waits in hopes that it is going to be a ?Miss Lora? day.  You can't ask for more than [Button Meadow Dog Camp] when you need to entrust your precious animals with someone other than yourself!!"

- Enid Segal, Northampton


"My golden retriever, Sherman, has been a [dog day care] regular at Parade of Pets day camp [ Button Meadow Dog Camp] as well as [boarding] overnight for quite some time now.  When I tell him ?Lora is coming? he gets so excited.  Lora loves what she does and it shows in how happy the dogs are with her.  I could not think of a better [dog day care and dog boarding] place that I would send my dog to.  He is part of my family and [Button Meadow Dog Camp's] family also.
[Button Meadow Dog Camp] is a great place and Lora is a great person."

- Sandy Hayden, Easthampton


"We moved to Massachusetts two years ago. The move was stressful enough without having to search for the right caretaker for my lovable older lab. We were so fortunate to find [Button Meadow Dog Camp].  [Lora] loves dogs and treats them all like members of her own family. I know from first hand experience, she laughs with them on long walks, soothes them when they are sore, and never gives up on them when their bodies can't quite keep up with their spirits. Simply put, Lora is an amazing caretaker.  I would recommend [Button Meadow Dog Camp] without hesitation."

- Debbie Long, Amherst


"Lora has found the perfect job (or calling I should say).  She loves the animals and they love her as well.  They have complete trust in her as we have also through out the years.  We met her and were very impressed with her dedication to all the animals; rain or shine she gets everyone taken care of and then some!  She is also very flexible with her scheduling and that means a lot when she is able to help during an emergency etc.  She has been taking care of our pets for the last six-years since she first set-up A Parade of Pets, [now, Button Meadow Dog Camp] and no one could have done a better job.  We are looking forward to the next six-years+ with her taking care of our pets and being a friend."

- Dee and Jim Felty (along with Sassy, Lowlita, and Stuart), Easthampton


[Button Meadow Dog Camp] has cared for our treasured nine year old English lab, Scout, practically since [Lora] opened [as] A Parade of Pets. When [Button Meadow Dog Camp's taxi] shows up for Scout, he leaps inside her green [van] with glee and the tail doesn't stop wagging until he sits on it. Even then, we suspect it continues happy wags of approval in the backseat.  Over the years we've left Scout [boarding at Button Meadow Dog Camp] for lengths varying from a weekend to up to three weeks, while traveling throughout the Northeast, the West Coast and abroad. Sometimes while in residence at [Button Meadow Dog Camp], Scout has required a little extra TLC such as meds for his swimmer's ears.  We always have complete confidence that Scout is receiving from [Button Meadow Dog Camp] the absolute best care available.  In fact, we're secretly waiting for [Button Meadow Dog Camp] to open a grownups' B&B, so we can check in with Scout someday.
