Malisa is a caring and thoughtful dogsitter. My dog was sad to leave her home! She cares for him like he was her own. She lavishes him with love, attention, and walks and I am so comfortable with my little boy staying with her. She will send you photos and videos every day and you will see for yourself how wonderful she is!

Tofu loves Malisa and her husband! Malisa is so easy to coordinate with. Thank you again for a wonderful, stress free stay!
Our dog, Lovie, has been a guest at Malisa's many times. Our dog is very high energy and must be a lot of work for Malisa. However, I never hear complaints. Malisa sees the sweetness of our girl. I can not imagine a better home away from home.
Baxter had a great Vacay at Malisa's as usual. He loves interacting with the other dogs he meets there and loves the walks he goes on. So happy to have found such a wonderful home to leave my dog when I go away. Love the pictures and updates Malisa sends me during his stay. Thank you again.

As always, my dog, Lovie, and I are completely satisfied with every visit to Malisa's house. She is amazing!
Malisa was wonderful once again! We never worry when we leave our pup with her. She sends many updates with photos and videos and we can see how much fun he is having. We would highly recommend the Aloha Dog Lady to anyone needing boarding.
Malisa is the best care giver any dog could hope for! I've had dogs for 25 years and, until discovering Malisa, I would feel such guilt when I left the dog in a kennel. With Malisa, it's like my dog and I both get to go on vacation! She, her husband, and sweet Zekie, their dog, are the best!

Baxter had another great time with Malisa and Tony. He gets a lot of TLC, I get peace of mind that my dog is being well cared for. I'm happy that he still wants to go home with me! He has a great time with Zekie and the other dogs he sees there. There are so many repeat customers that he knows these other dogs by now. Thanks again.

From the moment we met Malisa and Zekie on our first meet and greet we knew this was the perfect home away from home for Kolton. Even before we left on our flight we received photos and videos or how well Kolton was adjusting to his new home as well as having such a great time on his walks, meeting other guest pooches and hanging out with his big brother Zekie. The videos and messages of Kolton’s adventures that we received during out trip away were just so comforting and always put a smile on our faces. Knowing that he was so well loved and taken care of we were able to enjoy our 2 week trip out of the country with no worries at all. Malisa is so warm and compassionate and such a welcoming host – so incredibly happy to have found a truly wonderful home and loving family. We are definitely looking forward to many future stays.

I can't say anything enough. Malisa is the best ever❤️ My baby Bori has been stayed with Malisa and her family a few times and my boy loves staying with them so much!! Every time I pick him up, I see my baby is so spoiled and I love it. I really appreciate that Malisa and her family gives so much love to cutie Bori

I can't imagine a more loving caregiver for my Lovie! My dog is always excited to see Malisa and her dog Zekie. I never have a worry when Lovie is at her house and I love the funny stories and pictures she sends regularly. She's the best!!!!!!
Our dog, Tofu, was completely spoiled by Malisa. He enjoyed his stay very much - going on long walks, playing with Zekie and being held by Malisa. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing he was in such good hands. He sees Malisa as his second mom, even crying on the way home when he left. We plan on booking her for all our vacations. Thank you Malisa!!

Cody had another great vacay with Malisa, Toni and Zekie (Codie's 4 leged best friend).
I cannot thank Malisa enough for taking so good care of Cody.
She sends me videos and photos on a regular basis so we can enjoy our pooch while we are away.
We are 100% confident that Malisa will take care of any pet entrusted to her.
Thank you again Malisa. We love you! :)

This was my little furkid, Bori's third stay with Malisa and her family during my 4 days trip to SF. I can't imagine my trip without Malisa's help. Now I can say I am a returning customer of Malisa, whom I can trust. I feel really comfortable leaving my baby as I can tell Malisa is so good for taking care of him. I really appreciated all the pics and videos sent from her. Those pics and videos made me so relieve during the whole time of my trip. I was so happy to see my Bori playing so well with his new pals having fun times in the video. When I picked him up, I felt like he wanted to play more with his new pals staying at Malisa's house instead of coming back to his home. I could tell that my little guy was soooo loved by Malisa and her family. How lucky I am to find her!!

Absolutely delighted with the care our dog received from Malisa! She took time to get to know our little guy, his needs and his personality. We were concerned that he might not do well with other dogs, but Mailsa is such a skilled care taker that the visit was an educational experience in socialization. Our dog made canine and human friends; he ate and slept well. Malisa sent us updates with pictures and videos everyday. Highly, highly recommend!!!

This is the third time Cody has stayed with Malisa, Tony and of course Zekie (Cody's best friend) and once again he had a great time! Malisa takes excellent care of him and sends daily photo updates and is always quick to respond to any messages. I would absolutely recommend Malisa and would definitely trust her to take care of Cody any time!
Thank you for making us feel at ease when we travel and leave Cody behind. He's in best hands with you.

Baxter had another fabulous time with Malisa and Tony and Zekie and other friends. He loves to stay with them and I'm always happy to see that he wants to come home with me, since he has such a good time there! It's been great to find them as a 'second home' for Baxter when I go away because I always feel that he is very well taken care of and he gets lots of love. Thanks again!

Malisa is the best dog sitter ever. This was the first time ever leaving our little dog, Tofu. We were nervous and sad to leave him. Malisa was so calm and loving towards Tofu. She posted regular updates and loved him as much as we do. We plan to book her for all our vacations!
Read More...
We always feel that our dog, Lovie, is on vacation when she is at Malisa's house. She is treated like a princess! There is no one we would rather leave Lovie with!
Aloha Malisa, Tony and Zekie,
Another home away from home with Malisa was so much fun. You have to know Zekie is my buddy.
Malisa always takes care of me and so does Tony.
I, Cody am a repeat customer and I know my mom has no worry when I stay with Malisa, I am well taken care of.
Mahalo Malisa

If I could give Malisa ten stars, I would! My dog, Lovie, is pampered and treated like a princess in their home. The only times I have not felt guilty leaving my dog at home are the times she is with Malisa. There's no better pet sitter than the Aloha Lady!
Read More...
Malisa and Tony are the best pet hosts any dog owner could ask for! You can rest assured that if you leave your pet with Malisa and Tony your pet will be pampered, loved and well taken care off while you are away on vacation / business etc. We are so pleased with the attentive, high-quality care. Our dog was absolutely pampered. We highly recommend Malisa and Tony!
Our dog Cody loves to sleep on Zekie's bed (the hosts' pet). He is such a mellow and lovable dog. Cody will definitely return for another vacay stay.

Another awesome stay with Malisa! Our pup had a great time. Malisa always shares photos and videos so way always see what a fun time they are having.
It doesn't get better than a stay with Malisa, Aloha Dog Lady!! Our corgi, Kenji, has stayed here numerous times and it is truly his 2nd home. He loves their dog Zekie (now like his older brother), and their whole family!! Malisa spoils him and provides us many pictures and videos a day. There are times when I swear Kenji is sad to come home with us because he misses Malisa and Zekie so much!! Thank you for the FABULOUS care! We can't wait to see you again!! Aloha Pumehana, Kenji

We couldn't be happier with a dog sitter than we are with Malisa!!! She gives our Weimaraner lots of walks, love, and attention. Our dog thinks she's a princess when she's at Malisa's house. We've got the photos to prove it!
Malisa is the best host for our little Miles. He and we feel that he has a great second home there. We hope to continue our relationship for years to come. Thanks!!
We could not have picked a better "Vacay" host if we had tried for years. Malisa is so loving and welcoming that our pup Miles took to her immediately. She is so very easy to work with and Miles can't wait to go back for the walks and some more "lap time"
Thanks Malisa!

Baxter has now stayed with Malisa multiple times but this was the longest stay--3 weeks. He has gotten to know other dogs that stay with her and they are all friends by now. I wouldn't have been able to go on my trip without knowing that Baxter was being cared for so well. I really appreciate the care she and Tony provide for him and I love the pictures she sends me when I'm away. Thanks again and I give her my highest recommendation!
Read More...
Malisa and her hubby, Tony are the best. Our Jack Russell Terrier is not only a picky eater, but picky about warming up to people, too. But after a few visits, he has found a second home complete with loving pet parents! No more guilt and worry about leaving him! We have referred Malisa to our friends, but do so with a little hesitation. We want to keep this rare find to ourselves!
Read More...
Our Choc. Lab Kona had another great visit with Malisa…we have been trusting her with our dog for about two years and would never want to go anywhere else. Thank you Malisa :) 
This is my third time with Malisa and she continues to be sweet, kind, and caring. My dog is always happy with her and if she is happy, I am happy. I can always rely on Malisa and I am grateful and fortunate to be able to book a last minute stay with her. She fills up fast, so I would recommend you book ASAP. Thank you again Malisa!

Marisa and Tony spoil our Jack Russell Terrier and he is perfectly willing to let them. He loves the daily walks with the "pack" and sharing the recliner with Tony! We don't worry about leaving our dog when we have a trip, now that we've found the "Aloha Lady"!
Read More...
Thank you Malisa, you are awesome!!!
Carly always has a great time and we feel so good leaving her with you because you are great and take good care of her. She seems happy and looks great in all pictures you send during her stay with you. You are part of our family now.

Another wonderful stay with Malisa! Vixie loves his home away from home. Malisa always takes him on long walks and lets him cuddle up with her at night -- his two favorite things. We highly recommend her and Zeiki. (Her hubby is great too!)
Malisa is the perfect host for our girls! They are happy and loved while in her care.
Baxter had another wonderful time with Malisa and Tony. I received daily pictures about his activities and knew that he was having a great time. I feel so fortunate to have found such a loving home to leave my dog when I'm away. I have now left Baxter there several times and am always so pleased with the care he gets. He even knows some of the other dogs that stay there on a regular basis and they have become friends as well. Thanks, Malisa, for your care of Baxter. I really appreciate it every time.
Read More...
Our pet was taken care of as if she was a member of the family. I could relax knowing my older sweet dog was not in a lonely kennel while we were on vacation. I will definitely use this dog sitter again!
We have used Malisa several times for short overnight stays, but this is the first time Joey has stayed over a week. Marisa is a patient and loving substitute "pet parent"! Our Jack Russell Terrier is a picky eater especially when we leave him. Malisa slowly gained his trust and had him eating regularly! She knew we were worried, so she was kind enough to send us video of him eating! We are so grateful we found Malisa and Tony!

Malisa was amazing! My dog Cody was treated to a 5 star resort vacation. Malisa showered Cody with love and attention and she made us feel secure with multiple daily updates and pictures. Cody was treated to multiple walks a day, belly rubs, and homemade treats. She welcomed Cody into her home and made him feel safe and loved. This was my first time using a dog sitter and now I wished I found Malisa sooner. Goodbye Petsmart and our local vet for boarding. From now on I will only use Malisa.

Baxter had another great time with Malisa and her other dog friends. In fact, I've already reserved two other times for Baxter to stay with her this summer. She sends lots of pictures of him playing, walking, getting lots of love and attention, as well as sleeping after all that exercise. I feel great leaving him with her and give her my highest recommendation! Thanks again.
Read More...
Marisa and Tony were so attentive to making Joey's stay comfortable and fun. We have a high energy Jack Russell Terrier who loves walks and playing fetch. He almost didn't recognize us when we picked him up after only one day! We appreciated the 3 sets of photos detailing his day. This made us feel comfortable about leaving him for a longer stay!

Malisa is the greatest & kindest person with dogs. We are always so confident that Carly will be happy ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Excellent!!! Carly had a wonderful time and lots of great pictures!!
This is the 3rd time that Bear has stayed with Malisa. He loves Malisa and Zekie. He gets walks, toys, and good company. Bear tends to get overstimulated when there are a lot of dogs around, so staying at Malisa's is ideal - not too many dogs and he gets personal attention. Malisa is great -- she sends video & photo updates everyday, plus she really likes Bear. Although I miss Bear when I'm away, I know he's in good hands. I miss him more than he misses me.

Our dog Vixie had another wonderful stay with the Aloha Dog Lady. When we pulled up to her place, our dog was so excited to get out and see Malisa and Zeike. We can tell he loves coming on vacation with them. Malisa sends wonderful text messages with photos and videos so we always feel confident our pouch is having as much fun on his vacation as we are on ours. We definitely recommend her!

This was our German Shepherd's second stay with Malisa and Maggie was so happy to see her. I feel totally comfortable and Malisa, in the past I have been a big worrier. Malisa and Tony make us feel at ease and the daily photo texts show us our dog is being taken care of and gives us piece of mind.

This is the second time that my baby stayed at new place with new people and I could tell my puppy LOVED Malisa and her family. Malisa is a very loving-dog person I could tell. She sent me a lot of pictures and videos every single day since I was apart from my baby. With the pictures and videos she explained what my dog was doing and how well he was doing. She walked my dog and other dogs everyday and my dog loved walking with her in the video she sent. And in every picture, my dog looked really really happy. I was a little worried because there were a few large dogs staying at her place and my dog was the only one that was a small dog ( he is a maltipoo). But Malisa paid a lot of attentions to him and took care of him very well. I wanted my dog to be more socialized and get well along with other dogs. And I think he made it!
I will definitely come back to Malisa if needed. I really recommend her. And thank you so much Malisa!!

We are so lucky to have found Malisa and her family. They truly care about our dog Lucky and treat he him like another member of the pack. As always Malisa is extremely professional, responsive and caring. We have used Malisa's services numerous times and will hopefully be able to for years to come.

I am thrilled to have found your website! And, we couldn't be happier with the experience we had with Malisa, the Aloha Lady! From the beginning, the Meet and Greet, she showed that she knew how to introduce a new dog to her dog in their territory. She truly loves what she does. Our Weimaraner has lots of energy and came home exhausted because of the walks and having Zekie, her dog, to play with. It was wonderful to know how things were going through the many videos and photos texted to me throughout the stay. Malisa will definitely be our first choice for dog sitting from now on. Thank you!

If there were 10 stars or 100 stars, Malisa would receive them. She is the BEST. Holly and Pumpkin love to be there with her - no anxiety or separation issues at all. They love her and so do we!
Another fabulous stay with the Aloha Dog Lady! Vixie had a wonderful stay and loved playing with Zeiki and the other dogs. We loved knowing he was cared for & receiving the updates while we were away. Thanks Malisa!
There's no one better than Malisa. Our "girls" are loved and taken care of the way we would!
My "girls" love Malisa, Tony and Zekie. When we arrive at their house, the girls are anxious to see them again. They are treated like they are home with us. We won't leave them anywhere else!!!
Another great stay for Baxter at Malisa's. This time he got to go on 3 walks in a day! He is very happy there and loves the routine. I feel so fortunate to have found such a wonderful person and place to take him when I'm away. Thanks again!
Thank you Malisa for another great stay!! This is truly Kenji's 2nd home, and we feel so blessed to have found you to care for him whenever we leave town!! Your constant photos, videos and updates always warm our day & leave us assured that he is having a good time. Kenji loves you, Zekie & your family so much that he even seems depressed to be home! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Thanks for the fabulous care and loving him & his crazy antics, just as much as we do!!!

Baxter had a wonderful time with Malisa over Christmas! He gets to go on walks, play with other dogs, and gets lots of attention. This was his third visit and by now he knows the routines and feels very comfortable there. Malisa kept me updated with text messages and pictures every day and so I knew Baxter was having a great vacation himself! I feel fortunate to have found such a loving home to leave my dog when I'm away. Thanks again.

Mimi had a great time . She was rested and in a good mood when we picked her up. Malisa sent me constant updates. Thank you so much. Maya
This was the second time I had Malisa take care of Baxter and now I feel like it is a second home for him. He was included as part of the family and had a great dog friend with Zeke. I feel very fortunate to have found such wonderful people and home to leave my dog with when I'm away. I'm going to be a return customer whenever I go on a trip! Thanks so much.

Our Chocolate Lab Kona had another great say with Malisa and her dog Zekie! Malisa is so awesome with our dog…always texting us with updates, pictures and videos of their walks and even just relaxing at her home. Malisa is also very attentive with our dogs needs that we feel so comfortable leaving our dog with her. If you are looking for someone that loves dogs and will care for them just as you would…Malisa is the best!!

Thank you!
Carey & Betty

Malisa and Zekie were perfect! Holly was glad to see us but not overly anxious - I'm sure it was because Malisa took such great care of her. Being a rescue dog, Holly does not aways adjust to different surroundings, but not the case with Malisa.

It was wonderful to come home to a happy, clean dog! We will definitely refer Malisa (Aloha Dog Lady) to our friends and we will definitely leave Holly with her again!!!
Read More...
Malisa and Tony are fantastic! They took care of Belle so well and let her be part of the family! We got pictures and videos of Belle daily so we can have peace of mind while on vacation. Zekie is such a nice dog and I'm sure Belle will miss him!
We definitely will come back again! Thanks so much!

Totally satisfied!! Malisa is so awesome we highly recommend her to anyone looking to board their dog. From the minute we met Malisa and her dog Zekie at the meet and greet we had a good feeling about leaving our Choc Lab Kona with her. Malisa was so good about keeping us informed about how things were going. She sent us texts, photos and videos of the walks she took the dogs on and even just relaxing and napping at the house. You can really tell Malisa loves dog and loves what she does…. we would absolutely use her again!
Read More...
Everything was great!! Malisa is a wonderful lady that loves dogs and takes very good care. Her house is all clean and neat, even full of dogs!! Carly and ourselves are totally in love with her. And she always keeps us updated with all activities and things she does with the dogs with pictures and texts. See you next time!!
Read More...
I couldn't be happier with the love and care that Malisa gave to our dog! She really treated him like her own -- so much care and patience, and her love for our dog (and his crazy antics) was evident! Zekie was a wonderful playmate for our dog Kenji, and they became best of friends. Malisa sent several emails and videos each day, updating us on Kenji, and took good care of both dog and owner, making us all feel at ease. I hope Malisa is available for all of our future trips because anywhere else would now feel second-rate. Thank you Malisa, Tony and Zekie for your excellent care and making Kenji part of your family!!

Thank goodness we found "Aloha Dog Lady" aka: Malisa & Zekie. I was looking to make a change because I found that where I was boarding our Miss Bailey Mae (a private home in Orange) she was coming home smelling very "dog" and I began to question the cleanliness of the home because I was not allowed inside. During our meet & greet with Malisa & her dog Zekie she made me very at ease by opening up her home, answered all of our questions and we even took the dogs on a walk. During Baileys stay at their home she had an accident which required her to be groomed. Malisa was on the ball and notified us immediately, made the necessary arrangements and had Bailey to the groomers within minutes. We were given updates, photos, videos during our vacation which were fun to see. We even got a "Pawgress Report" when we picked her up. She came home tired from meeting new friends, watching dog TV, multiple daily walks and training! She had an amazing time there and we are looking forward to using her again!

We were so pleased to have found a way to board our dog in a home environment while we were out of town. It made our trip that much more relaxing knowing that she was happy and enjoying her stay at Malisa's house. We looked forward to receiving the photos and updates of her activities and we loved the videos that were sent as they gave us a true picture of how she was doing. We appreciated all the extra care and attention that was given to our dog, who is a retired Marine working dog and at times can be very active. When Piper came home she was very calm and content, and probably a bit worn out from all the fun she had had interacting with the other dogs that also were being boarded.

Our two girls were very happy and peasful when we picked them up. They were very happy being with Malisa and they didn't really even want to leave when we got thier a true testament to her loving care of our two spoiled little girls. They both love to cuddle and play, so they obviously got a lot of that from Malisa. We got constant text messages and pictures which made us very happy. We will definitely use her again for our yearly Disneyland trips. So glad we found her this year.

This is the second time I've had Malisa watch my dog and I was pleased once again. A spontaneous family trip came up and I messaged Malisa to see if she was available to watch my baby for two nights. I was leaving in two days and I needed someone who I can trust fast! Thankfully, she was able to watch her for me even though she previously booked another dog. She reassured me that it was no problem. My dog was so happy to see Malisa and Zekie again, I knew she wouldn't miss me. I was a little late picking up my dog due to traffic, but Malisa was understanding and so nice about it. Overall, I am super pleased with Malisa and I have full trust in her.
Read More...
Malisa was great. She took such great care of my dog. They walked twice a day and she emailed me pictures everyday I was gone. Those were really good to see while I was away. She even let her sleep in the bedroom, something my dog doesnt even get to do at home. My dog also made a new friend while she was there.I will certainly call her next time I have to go out of town.
Read More...
Our dog's experience was awsome!! Malisa is wonderful and loves dogs a lot. I never thoght I was going to get pictures, videos & texts to see how my dog was doing!!! It was such a wonderful experience and comfort to know that our dog was in such great hands. I'm sure my dog misses Malisa a lot. Thank you for this great experience!! We are lucky to find care takers like Malisa.

Malisa has been great host for dexter. I left dexter with her for a weekend and she took good care of dexter. Dexter was happy during his stay and he had some great walks with Malisa. Will dog board again at Malisa.
Malisa & Zekie were wonderful. Our Vixie was well cared for and happy. Malisa sent us daily messages with either photos or videos and it became the highlight of our day to view her messages. We could tell from her comments that our dog was feeling at home and comfortable in her care. Zekie is also very friendly and a great playmate. Our dog looks forward to staying with them again!

I was extremely happy with the care my dog received from Malisa. She sent me daily updates and pictures about how he was doing and I could tell that he was having a very good time. He got taken on multiple walks per day, got baths, had other dogs to play with, and bonded with her. I would definitely leave my dog with her again. I did not worry about him while I was away and he really did have his own 'Dog Vacay-tion'. Thanks so much for the excellent care. Malisa is definitely a 'dog person'.

Malisa was great to work with! She really cares for animals and sent us daily pics and updates of dog while we were away. We will definitely be using her services again!
Malisa, Tony, and Zekie are the best! We recently left our Roxy on a second, long-term stay. We are so pleased with the attentive, high-quality care. Our dog was absolutely pampered. Highly recommended!
Malisa provided a home away from home for Brownie. She provided me daily updates and peace of mind while away.
We can't say enough about how happy we are with Malisa. She was so responsive at every step, and her pictures and updates were outstanding. Roxy was given the the most attentive, loving care. It's such a comfort to be able to give our dog such a wonderful home-stay experience.

We checked a few options before we met with Malisa. When we met with Malisa and Zekie I could see that her interation with Zekie was genuine and he was pampered. This is exactly what I was looking for in a caregiver. Zekie's happiness matters to her. We came back for a second visit since there was another vacay dog staying with her during our dog Maggie's stay. Maggie was so happy to be back at Malisa's that she started to whine with happiness. This made us feel even more comfortable. Maggie stayed 10 days with Malisa, Tony and Zekie. We received an average of 2 text photos of Maggie each day and we could see she was going very well. We were sent home with a report card of how Maggie did. We are very happy and Maggie came home in good spirits. It is a good feeling when you meet someone that really cares for your dog and your dog will be in good hands. Maggie will be a return client for sure. They are true dog lovers. I am so glad my huband found her!

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Malisa, Tony and Zeke!!!! I had only boarded the kids once before at Petsmart and was looking for more of a home environmentfor their boarding so a friend recommend me to DogVacay and so happy they did. After hours of searching reviews I came across Malisa's page (Aloha Doglady). I carefully read her reviews, looked at her reviews and set up an appointment. We arranged a meet and greet prior to our reservation and could not feel more at ease and comfortable. Malisa and Zeke are truly the dog whisperers of Fullerton!!! Malisa had all walk into a pack to meet Zeke and all of the boys got along wonderfully! My husband and I were so comfortable, assured, and happy leaving Gus and Max with Malisa. They were truly loving, caring and understanding with our kids. We received photo and video updates throughout our weekend getaway. This helped me enjoy our time away and know that they were in good hands. Malisa treated our kids just like one of our own, followed their eating schedules, snacks and their playtime. Did I mention long walks throughout the day!!!!. I truly could not be more happy, satisifed and pleased with leaving the kids with Malisa and her family. By the end of my experience Malisa and her family came to feel like family to me, and I will defintely leave the kids here again. I recommend Malisa, Tony and Zeke to everyone!!!!!

Malisa did a great job with my puppy, to the point where he didnt want to come back home with me. She does a great job caring for the dogs she takes care of. I would definitely go back to her again.
Overall, it was a great experience from beginning to end. Malisa was very prompt in answering my messages and setting up times with dropoff and pickup. While our dog was there, she sent numerous pictures and texts to let us know how he was doing. She was very caring and loving of our energetic husky. We got a report card at the end that summarized his stay. She is highly recommended!

I was super pleased to let Malisa take care of my baby. She was such a sweet lady; I knew my baby and I would be happy with her right after our Meet and Greet. I left my dog for 3 nights and Malisa was so kind enough to send me pictures and videos throughout my trip. I was happy to see that my dog, Lily, and her dog, Zekie, got along wonderfully and played together very well. It kept Lily occupied and she didn't feel lonely at all. I suggest you do a Meet and Greet with her and you'll be just as pleased as I was!

Malisa is awesome and very highly recommended. I had last minute travel plans, and she was flexible and kind enough to accommodate my needs (cutting short her own travel). My large black lab Bear is a sweetheart at home, but he had received less than stellar reports from doggie daycare situations with multiple dogs, so I wanted to place him with one or two playmates at most. Malisa was willing to take him on, and it turned out great! Bear behaved well, and he was treated just like one of the family. He got on great with Zeke, who taught him some doggie social manners and how to play; he got walked a lot in a beautiful park setting; and he received lots of love and attention (and even a bath!) from Malisa and her husband. Malisa sent lots of photos that really made my trip that much better because I knew Bear was not only being taken care of, but having a great time. Bear will definitely be going on vacay at Malisa's the next time I have to travel without him. Oh, and the pawgress report she leaves is much appreciated!

Best experience ever! Malisa was wonderful and from the moment we dropped Pepper and Scrappy (our two mini-schnauzers) off to her, we felt 100% sure that they were in good hands. My husband and I took our daughter to Disneyland while traveling on vacation and needed somewhere to leave our doggies for the day. We didn't want them to be kenneled all day while we were out having fun, so we found Malisa through dogvacay. She sent us picture texts throughout the day of Pepper and Scrappy having fun too...on walks, playing in the yard, napping by the Christmas tree...having their own Disneyland experience of sorts. We were so happy to be worry-free, knowing that our pups were being well-cared for and having fun too!

Our experience with the Aloha Dog Lady (Malisa C) truly exceeded all of our expectations.

We were in need of someone to watch Molly for 11 days while we were on vacation. After spending days reading and rereading the profiles on DogVacay, we met with Malisa (Aloha Dog Lady) and Zekie aprox 1 month prior to our trip.

Although they were located about 40 mins from my home, both Malisa & Zekie seemed to be a perfect fit for Molly (& our peace of mind)... and they were!

Prior to the stay we completed an in depth questionaire, detailing Molly's history, routines, behaviors, and health. When the big day arrived, I packed up Molly's leash & harness, crate, bed, food, favorite ball, toys, treats, blanket and one of my smelly shirts, and we were off.

Malisa, Zekie & family welcomed Molly warmly and appropriately- keeping excitement and anxiety to a minumum. Drop off went easier than I ever could have imagined. (It was harder for me then Molly!) That night, Malisa started posting progress reports and photos for us. (She even offered to Skype with us!)

Checking on Molly's new pictures was something we and our travel companions looked forward to daily. In addition to getting a ton of love and attention, Molly also got lots of exercise with two long walks a day and plenty of play time. I had hoped Zekie- with his calm demeanor and high level of obedience- would be a good role model for our girl - and he was! Molly was quickly and effectively integrated into the "pack" and even learned some new rules!

Malisa's experience and aptitude with dogs was apparent from the beginning. Her warm heart and caring attitude made me feel as if I had left our girl with a member of our family. Her leadership and confidence convinced me that Molly would be kept in her place.

Finally, I must mention Malisa's professionalism, which made her an absolute pleasure to work with. She knows her job well, and obviously enjoys it. The daily activities, updates, photos and final "Pawgress Report" were over and above our expectations.

I can't say enough how pleased we were with the entire "cage-free" boarding experience and the superior level of service we recieved.

It is for all of these reasons that I am pleased to offer Malisa C. my highest possible recommendation.

Malisa and her dog Zekie are amazing. Right when I dropped off my puppy he was in heaven. She sent me pictures throughout the day of all the fun they were having. I highly recommend taking you doggy here. When I brought my puppy home for her house all he did was sleep because of all the fun he had. Her dog Zekie was so great with my puppy Zeus. I will definitely be bringing him back in the future!
