Our focus is to help you and your dog build a bond that will last a lifetime.”

Life is Dog Petcare is owned and operated by Nance Moran & Dana Langley.  Nance & Dana have always had a passion for working with and caring for animals. They are both Certified Professional Dog Trainers and continue to educate themselves to best serve their clients.

Life is Dog was created out of the love and compassion for offering a superior training and pet care model. We offer training, walking, day camp and more. We are located at 330 Boston Post Rd East in Marlborough MA with over 7,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor day camp space and a 1,500 square feet of training space.


I am Nance Moran, creator and co-owner of Life is Dog. I am also an experienced and educated veterinary technician and I hold an MS in Biology where I’ve held a long-term career as a Scientist.  This supports our science based reinforcement dog training approach. I am a certified trainer CPDT-KA and currently I also hold a Diploma of Canine Behavior and Science Technology (DipCBST) for Behavioral Modification, and a certified Service Dog Coach (SDC), and AKC evaluator. I share my life with Bruin (beagle mix), and Charlee (golden), and Woodstock (golden).  I enjoy training, constant learning through continuing education and collaboration, novice freestyle fun, horseback riding and camping along with campfire friends.  Life is Dog was born in love and a superior petcare model celebrating individual needs and the quality of care we provide.


My name is Tim, you will see me most often at the door to the Camp, greeting the dogs and their owners as they arrive each day.  My journey with Life Is Dog began in 2016 as a Business Consultant.  Over the years I have worn many hats and for the last few years I’ve been proud to call myself the General Manager.  I have a lifetime of experience managing businesses for others as well as my own handyman business for many years.  I have two grown daughters that, I am proud to say, are making their own way in the world.  When my life should have slowed down, I pivoted and got a bunch of dogs to raise and care for.  My wife and I now have three dogs at home and all the controlled chaos you could ask for.


Hi, I’m Kim!  I’ve worked for Life is Dog for 5 years as a down to earth, trustworthy professional dog walker.  I’m a University of Vermont alumni and a proud parent of a German Shepherd, Brodie.  Before Life is Dog, I worked for a land surveying company working on the Big Dig in Boston.  After that, I decided to stay home to raise two wonderful daughters.  Dogs of all sizes, from a Dachshund to German Shepherds, have always been a big part of my life since I was born.  I became a dog walker to follow my strong love for the outdoors and dogs.  One of my hobbies is photography and I love taking pictures of my 4 legged friends!”


Hi my name Steph, I’m with my two dogs Ranger (on my lap) and Ania (known to her friends as Onion). I started with Life is dog in November of 2017 as a doggie daycare attendant and have worked my way up to Assistant Team Leader.   I love working with the dogs and creating different games for them to play while they are at daycare. There is nothing better than sending home a tired & happy pup.


Hi I’m Jess. I have been with LID for almost 4 years. Although I am primarily a walker you will also see me around the daycare from time to time. I enjoy being outside and love animals of all sizes. I can’t wait to meet your furbaby!!


Hello my name is Matt! I’m a Gemini, and boy howdy do I love me a good dog! Like dogs are like 7x better than people! But seriously I have an Associates’s Degree in Animal Care from Becker College.  I have been with LID since 2016 when we opened our puppy daycare with only 3 dogs!  We are now up to over 30 dogs/day and we are very proud of our low dog to attendant ratio, making for a very happy and stress free environment for the dogs.


Hi, I’m Kelsey! I’ve always had a love of dogs and being outdoors. I’ve been a walker with Life Is Dog for about five years now. When I’m not working, I’m at home spoiling my own dog with walks and treats. I have a degree in photography which I try to put to good use when taking pictures of the dogs.


Hi, I’m Dana Langley, co-owner of Life is Dog, I’m with my two Vizsla’s, Maizee Mae & Reese Cup.  I have loved animals all my life and after a very successful business career in the restaurant industry I decided to make a change and follow my love of animals.  I started at Life is Dog as a part-time ABC Certified Dog Trainer in January 2016 and very quickly realized this was what I wanted to do with the next chapter of my life.  I joined Nance as her business partner in April 2016 and have not looked back!  I truly enjoy training and working with people and their dogs helping them make the best life possible together.

Hi, my name is Nicole! My entire life I’ve grown up alongside dogs and as I continue to work with them, my passion for saving, training, and loving them grows. On the right is Ascher (Beans) and on the left is Maverick (Monkey), my two GSP boys. I am a certified dog trainer and teach classes here at LID! You will also find me working at the day camp. I feel beyond privileged to be here and part of such a safe, proactive, and productive team that truly provides the best day camp and training services I’ve ever seen!
