Jake LOVED being at Lisa's house! She's wonderful with dogs - takes them to the dog beach every day as well as running errands around town. We will definitely be booking with her again!
Lisa was awesome! She sent pics of Bentley daily and it was obvious that he was having a blast. Lisa is highly recommended.
Lisa is awesome as always! This is our third year having Lisa as our pet sitter. This year we added a puppy to the mix, and we were a little nervous. There was no need to be as Lisa did an exceptional job taking care of little Daisy, and Rocky too. We will be back again next year, and look forward to Lisa taking care of our dogs.

Jake loves his Aunt Lisa, and does not look back when we drop him off to stay with her!
We had never been away from our 7 yr. old chocolate lab for more than a couple days (adopted him less than a year ago), so we were hesitant to leave him for over a week with anyone! Given Lisa's stellar reviews, we set up a meet and greet and knew she could handle our sometimes overly-energetic but loving Moose haha. We could not have been happier with her loving care and attentiveness...as with everyone else who left such a positive review, we are elated to know how much love/attention/activity Moose received while we were away. Although my husband and I were away honeymooning...the highlights of being away were Lisa's frequent emails and photos updating us what they had done during the day. LOVE that she does that, and I hope she knows how much everyone appreciates it. He returned to us wiped out-- never have we seen him sleep so much his first night back with us! So, so happy we found Lisa :)

Our dog had a wonderful first time stay with Lisa. We have a 4year old Vizsla who likes to run and play. Our dog got plenty of exercise , despite the rainy weather and stayed on her special diet which included handling raw meat. Lisa went above and beyond caring for our sometimes needy pup, sending us daily pics and updates. I highly recommend dog lover Lisa to anyone who wants top notch care for their canine.

Jake loves to go to Lisa's! He has lots of great play and beach time!
The very best....as always. Lisa's home is truly Parker's other home....our very first choice. We all love Lisa!
Lisa was a great host for our dog during a two-day visit to Coronado. She was warm and receptive to him and provided us with a daily summary of their activities, along with pictures. Lots of walks, especially to the dog beach, for our old fella. We look forward to using her again.

This way my pup's second stay with Lisa and he had a wonderful time. My boy has become an attention hog and Lisa was very patient with him and sent daily emails with pictures detailing his latest antics. She took him for visits to the park and dog beach where got to socialize and get lots of exercise. I can't say enough about Lisa and how well she took care of my boy. Thank you again Lisa!

I receive a call regarding a family emergency and needed to travel to Florida asap. Went in to panic mode because I had not traveled in some time. I had such fear about boarding my two beloved dogs, one of which has a serious health condition. I found Dog Vaycay online and was able to find Lisa. We had a " meet and greet" within 24 hrs. and all my fears where alleviated. They fell in love with Lisa immediately. She was also very qualified to deal with the concerning health issue. I left on my trip with one less major worry on my mind. During my trip I received updates with pictures. It was great to see my "babies" smiling!....and yes dogs do smile. I can't say enough great things about Lisa. She was a godsend in a very trying time. I will not hesitate to use Lisa again.

Our senior golden retrievers, Sam and Sophie, stayed with Lisa for their doggy vacay for 10 days and had a blast! They went to the dog park, the dog beach and for long walks around Coronado. We received daily updates and beautiful pictures of our dogs having fun so we were able to rest and really enjoy our vacation. We always feel at peace when Lisa has our pups. She takes such great care of them, feeds them their special meals, gives them their supplements and really understands their individual personalities. We feel so blessed to have found Lisa and we are as excited for our pups to stay with her when we are on vacation as we are about going on vacation ourselves. Thank you Lisa!

Lisa was great with our Golden. We received emails and pictures all day on how our dog was doing and the fun he had. It was like dropping him off with family. thank you. Joe and Alexandra..
I was really nervous leaving my six-month old dachshund alone for the first time but Lisa was wonderful and my little guy had a great time on his vacation. Lisa took the time to meet with me and my puppy before the drop off date and answered all of my questions. She sent pictures and updates every day that kept me up to date on his daily activities. My little guy is very social and Lisa took him on trips to the dog park and dog beach, which let him socialize with other dogs. I will be using Lisa the next time I have to go out of town and would highly recommend her.

I am very particular about who takes care of Jake, my 7 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever when I am out of town. As soon as I met Lisa I felt very confident that she would be a loving caregiver for Jake - and I was not disappointed! In fact Lisa's care exceeded my expectations! Daily pictures showed me that Jake was happy, from running on the beach, to playing in the park, to hanging out at home, I could see he was loved and well taken care of! Could Jake stay with Lisa again? Absolutely - every chance we get!

We traveled to Coronado w/ our 5mo old Newfoundland puppy and our 3 year old retriever mix .Lisa was nothing short of AMAZING! She is a true dog professional. She opened her home to my pups and we were immediately at ease. Daily emails and pix were sent which kept us all amused.Lisa goes above and beyond keeping pets entertained w/ daily beach trips, dog park outings and walks. She even bathed the dogs before we picked them up! She is an absolute gem and we are so happy to have found her! The Mulford family

I am at a loss to explain how highly we think of Lisa. She is the most caring and wonderful person you could possibly ask for and I highly recommend her. My dog loved staying with her and we loved the attention she gave to our family member. If you let your dog stay with Lisa, you will never let them stay anywhere else.

Quite simply, Lisa was better than expected! In fact, she took care of Bryce (cocker spaniel) better than we do :-)
Before I even had a chance to ask her to provide updates, she sent an email to me with pictures of their walk an hour after I dropped him off. I also think Bryce had a better time than we did.
Dont even think about going to anyone else, Lisa will treat your furry friend and he/she will enjoy their time away from you.
I wont even hesitate to use her the next time were in Coronado!

My golden retrievers stayed with Lisa for a quick overnight this time while I had family in from out of town. As usual, Lisa took loving care of them, they had a blast and it was such a relief to me since I was dealing with family. I am so thankful to have found Lisa, it's Sam and Sophie's home away from home.

I've reviewed Lisa's services so many times now but I still can't say enough about her. Lisa is about kindest sweetest person I've ever met and she treats my two precious senior golden retrievers like they were her own. She takes them to special places, she knows their special cozy places I her home and she knows their personalities almost as well as I do. The pictures and daily updates I get from Lisa make my day when I have to be away and I trust her so much that I never worry for a second when my pups are in her care. Thank you Lisa! Sam and Sophie LOVE you and can't wait for their next doggy vacay.

My Lucy had an amazing beach vacation with Lisa, and I won't ever seek out a "chain" dog boarder in town for future trips. I've previously been nervous to leave Lucy with anyone, but was comforted to meet up with Lisa prior to our planned vacay. She sent email and pictures throughout Lucy's stay, sometimes twice a day. Lucy made some new friends, Luca and Maizie, and went home happy and tuckered out after several beach trips and daily walks on Coronado Island. If you love your pup and want someone to watch your dogs with the utmost care while you're gone, go with Lisa!

Absolutely Wonderful! My dog loved Lisa and I cannot recommend her highly enough. I will definitely utilize her sitting service again.
Rocky loves to stay with Lisa, and we like her too! Rocky comes home exhausted from having so much fun. Lisa takes him on walks, to the park, and the beach. This is Rocky's 2nd time staying with Lisa, and we will be back again next year when we visit Coronado. Rocky made a new friend (Parker), and they had a blast together! Thanks again Lisa for taking such good care of Rocky! ❤️

Another great stay with Lisa! It's my goldens home away from home.
Trustworthy, active, loving, honest, just the absolute most caring and stellar person in the world! My dog and I have some pretty extreme separation anxiety, but Lisa was like a second Mommy to my Pepper-Boy and all was easy-breezy. Lisa will always be my go-to person for our future vacations.
Very satisfied clients! :-D

Another great stay with Lisa for our senior golden retrievers, Sam and Sophie. Lisa's house has become their second home and they have so much fun when they're there. Thank you Lisa for everything!
I've lost track of how many times Lisa has taken care of my precious pups, Sam and Sophie, but as usual, this was another terrific doggy vacay. I actually had to drag my dog Sophie to my car because she didn't want to leave Lisa's house where she has a comfy couch to lounge on, she gets to go play every day and she gets lots of love from her "Auntie Lisa". Lisa is honestly the best doggy caretaker we've ever had and our golden retrievers are 8 1/2 and 10 1/2 years old. They get to play every day, we get daily updates and Lisa is always willing to accommodate their special food and supplement needs. I go away with complete confidence and peace that my babies are being well cared for while I'm gone. Thank you Lisa!

Lisa took great care of my golden retriever and sent me daily updates and pictures. Her emails were very personalized, and through the photos and her descriptions of my dogs mannerisms, I knew he was doing great! She brought him to the beach and the dog park every day, and I was able to enjoy my holiday knowing that my dog was being well cared for. I will most definitely use Lisa's services the next time I need a dog sitter!
Read More...
An absolutely positively wonderful experience! Lisa sent me a daily e-mail with pics of my pup having the time of her life! I saved a few of the pics to possibly blow up and put into frames - they are terrific. This was my first experience with Dog Vacay and I couldn't be happier. If I could give Lisa 100 stars, I would do it.

This was Sam and Sophie's fourth or fifth stay with Lisa and the longest - 12 days! This time Sam, who is a senior golden, had some health issues and Lisa couldn't have been more wonderful. I warned Lisa ahead of time prior to booking in case she didn't want to take the issues on and her response was so loving - she said knowing what Sam was going through, she wanted to be the one to take care of him. This put my mind immediately at ease knowing he would be well cared for while I was overseas. As with all their stays, Lisa took them for walks and to the park, socialized them with other dogs and gave me daily updates and photos. I can't tell you how blessed and grateful to Lisa I am knowing how wonderful she is with my babies so I can go away knowing they are happy, healthy and well cared for. I swear that when I come pick them up at the end of a stay, they look disappointed to see me and just want to live with Lisa. Oh well, thank you Lisa for another great doggie vacay!

Lisa is awesome! She sent me several e-mails per day with updates and photos on my dog. I could tell my dog was having a great time and Lisa was enjoying herself too.
Another great doggie vacay for my two golden retrievers, Sam and Sophie, with Lisa! Sam and Sophie have stayed with Lisa several times now and they get so excited when they recognize where they are going. Lisa takes such great care of them - feeding them their special food, giving them medicines and supplements, and taking them for walks and play every day. Lisa also provides daily updates and pictures and puts my mind at ease each night that my precious pups are being cared for and loved while I'm gone. Thank you Lisa for another great stay.

Leaving our puppy with Lisa was like leaving him with family. We felt at ease, especially because of the daily updates and the photos of our pup looking happy and delightfully tired from all of his fun beach, park, and errand adventures. Lisa's easygoing yet mindful approach is splendid. I wish I could give 10 stars. Thank you again, we look forward to many more visits.

Another great doggy vacay for Sam and Sophie with Lisa. This is the third time my two senior golden retrievers have stayed with Lisa and I can't say enough about her. Daily activities, pictures and updates. Specialized food and supplements for meal times. There isn't anything Lisa won't do for your precious pups. We just love her!

Lisa was a great host! My dog, Shadow, is a 90lb+ bully pit and Lisa had another dog she was watching. Lisa ensured both dogs played nicely together and took them on walks and to the dog park. Lisa kept me updated with daily e-mails and I felt very comfortable while he was in her care. When I picked up Shadow he was tired and calm. I fed him dinner and he passed out! Lisa is a true professional doggy host, I am putting her on our favorite's list.

Chewie our English Golden Retriever had a great 2-day stay at Lisa's house in Coronado. As soon as I met Lisa I felt comfortable - very warm energy and I can tell she truly loves pups! During the weekend, Lisa sent several email updates per day with pictures. Lisa took Chewie to the beach, which is just a short walk from her house. It was Chewie's first overnight with a pet boarder and he had a little trouble falling asleep the first night, so she went downstairs with him for a few hours. The next night, no problem! When we picked up Chewie on Sunday, Lisa showed us a great dog brush called the Ferminator - when I saw how much hair it picked up we bought one immediately! Great experience and I would highly recommend Lisa!

Top notch location and care! Lisa was fantastic! We knew both of our golden retrievers would be in great hands within the first minute of our arrival. Her periodic updates--with pictures--gave us a worry-free weekend vacation. She has our highest recommendation and we will most certainly use her again.

Jake loves Lisa! He is a little nervous around strangers, but he feels that Lisa is "family" and gets so excited when he sees her. It's great peace of mind when we have to leave him.
This is the second time my pups, Sam and Sophie, stayed with Lisa and once again, they had a blast! Lisa takes such great care of them and I feel at ease and at peace having them with her. Lisa provided daily updates and pictures and Sam and Sophie looked so happy and looked like they were having so much fun. Thank you Lisa, you're an absolute angel!

What a terrific experience for our Princess! Everything we expected, and more. Lisa genuinely cares about her boarders, and kept in touch with us during the stay to let us know how our dog was doing. We will definitely call on Lisa again!
Each Vacay just gets better and better. Our Parker gets the best care and has so much fun. Lisa sends the best e-mails and photos and I think Parker came home happier than when he left home. Lisa is a true "dog whisperer"........we're so lucky we found her!

We left of goldendoodle with Lisa for the second time this July. This time he stayed for 3 days. My Buster recognized Lisa right away and was excited to see her. Again, Lisa sent email updates with pictures of how Buster was doing. She walked him and took him to dog beach. Anyone who meets Lisa will see she has a special place in heart for animals and is providing this service because she loves it. We will entrust Lisa with our pup again in the future.

We LOVE Lisa! We have two beautiful golden retrievers with lots of energy and Lisa took wonderful care of them. We had used the same dog sitter for years but when she moved, we were in a bind. Our pups, Sam and Sophie, are our children and we won't kennel them or leave them with just anyone. We found dogvacay and did meet and greets with three different hosts. Lisa was our favorite and we weren't disappointed. I can't begin to tell you how wonderful she is - she took our pups to play daily, was willing to handle special food and supplement needs and she provided us with daily updates and pictures. Our dog, Sophie, even had an issue with one of her claws (a pre-existing issue) and Lisa cared for it and bandaged it. Lisa is responsive to emails and phone calls immediately, is easy to make reservations with and the cost is unbelievable! She is worth a lot more than she charges. Don't hesitate to use Lisa to care for your beloved dog, you won't be disappointed! Thank you Lisa!

I found Lisa on Coronado island while on a month long vacation in July. I was looking for someone that I could trust to take care of my beloved goldendoodle for 1 night and two days. This was a last minute trip and Lisa responded within 10 minutes of my request for service through Dog Vacay. I had a quick chat with Lisa on the phone and then she invited Buster and myself to walk over for a short visit so we would be comfortable before making any type of commitment. We determined that the fit was just right. Lisa sent be numerous emails with updates on how Buster was doing and even sent me several photos. She walked him, fed him, and even took him to the local dog beach for some action and gave him a nice cleaning afterward. I will be using Lisa in the future.

We are so glad we found Lisa! She took our Ali and made her feel right at home....took her to the beach where Ali feels right at home....and then groomed her after. Sent us daily updates with photos...we knew Ali was with a special person. Ali had lovely walks, playtime with other dogs she met at the beach....was fed exactly per our instructions and was made to feel so at home. We weren't at all sure she would want to have us back!!!! And the location was awesome. We would definitely go back.

Another perfect Vacay for our Parker!
Lisa did such an AMAZING job with Westley! Not only does she have a deep connection and bond with animals, but she is dedicated to making each of her guests feel comfortable, happy, and loved. Not only did Wes fall in love with her, but we did too! I recommend Lisa to the moon and back! Thank u!

Absolutely the best home away from home for our big, energetic yellow lab! Walks to beach daily with Email photo updates. I'm not sure who has more fun on vacation, us or Duke? Duke can't wait to go back to his favorite vacay!
Rocky's stay with Lisa was great!! She took excellent care of our dog, and kept us updated on a daily basis with emails and pictures. She responded quickly to emails when we had questions. Rocky had lots of fun experiences at the park, and also got to play at the dog beach. Rocky also made quick friends with her foster dog Sassy. We plan on having Rocky stay with Lisa again during future visits to Coronado. Thanks Lisa!

Jake is always wagging his trail when we take him to Lisa's to stay. He knows he will be getting quality play time and love. Lisa is awesome, and has great experience and understanding of 4-legged kids. She sends pictures while we are away, so that we know that Jake is having as great a vacation as we are!

We are very happy with the care our dog Holly received while staying with Lisa. We were worried about leaving her with a stranger because we had never done this before but Lisa was the best pet sitter! It was immediatley obvious that Lisa was experienced and that our dog was in good hands. She knew the best approach to take when Holly arrived and patiently waited while Holly checked things out. While we were away Lisa kept us updated with emails and pictures. It was so reassuring to see that our dog was happy, playful and well taken care of. Lisa took Holly for regular walks and played with her often. The whole DogVacay experience was positive and Lisa went beyond our expectations. THANK YOU!

We felt so much peace of mind leaving our two dogs with Lisa. She emailed us updates each day, sometimes multiple times a day, with photos and video. Great stay and our dogs were pooped when we brought them home. Thank you Lisa.
Lisa is just awesome...my little dog had such a great time at her house. Lisa sent me daily e-mails and photos and even a video of my dog. She even gave her a bath before I picked her up! I felt very comfortable about the care that Lisa was providing to my dog, and will definitely use her again!

Lisa was the best dog sitter we ever had! Our dog was very happy at her house where she made him feel very welcome. She took him on walks and to dog beach everyday where he had a blast! She really cared for our dog by adapting to how he likes the ball thrown, and seeing where all the good places he likes scratched. She went above and beyond by sending us daily email updates on how he was adapting. I highly recommend Lisa, she will love your dog like he or she was her own. My only regret is that we didn't find Lisa sooner! Lisa is truly our dog's home away from home!

Couldn't have asked for a better experience - again! Our pup seemed a little conflicted leaving his vacation home. We found the perfect home away from home for our dog and we will definitely be reserving with Lisa again!
A BIG Thank You to Lisa! Tanner had a great stay and was very much pooped after his 3 night/2 day vacay. Lisa kept us apprised daily of Tanner's activities and was very open to us stopping by and taking Tanner to Dog Beach!
Lisa's care of our pup exceeded our expectations by FAR! I was very worried about my sweet but sometimes quirky boy, but Lisa "got" him right away. She definitely has a gift for understanding dogs and that's exactly what we were hoping for. Her daily+ e-mails were so descriptive, funny and endearing...made this nervous Mama completely relax. Our Parker came home happy, settled and exhausted from a fun-filled beach vacation. So happy we found Lisa!

My husband and I entrusted our "sons" with Lisa while we went out of town to a wedding. One of our dogs had special medication needs, and I felt so reassured that she would care for Jax like I would. This was an awesome experience, and since we are new to the area, I had major anxiety about leaving them. Once we had a "meet and greet" with Lisa, my fears were dissolved! She sent pictures daily and, I really don't think they missed us at all! Jake is very selective on who he choose to like, and he immediately went to Lisa for a "head pat." She is so cool!

Lisa was amazing, for us and for Bryaden. We were gone for a lengthy time back to Canada where we just moved from and for the 12 nights Bryaden was there, Lisa sent us daily updates with photos and stories. Lisa is tremendously experienced with dogs and loves them as she cares for them.

We were very lucky to have found Lisa among all the people on DogVacay, she was so accommodating for times and willing to work with our flight schedule even when we were delayed 2 hours.

Brayden was thrilled to be there, not sure whether to stay with her or come home with us, he had loads of exercise and rested well he was home.

THANKS LISA! YOU WERE GREAT!

This was my first time using dog vacay and we had a great experience. Lisa was a perfect fit for our large, nervous, energetic yellow lab Duke. Unlike staying at a kennel, he went on daily walks, trips to the park, dog beach and trail adventures. Lisa sent us daily email updates with photos which reassured me he was in good hands. When I picked him up, he had been bathed, fed, and walked. I know he was happy to see me after a week away from our family but I could tell he was a little sad to be leaving his loving, calm, patient and attentive host Lisa. He will be visiting her again.

My puppies Cheyenne and Dakota (7 month golden retrievers) stayed with Lisa for over 3 weeks. She was absolutely wonderful with them (and me). My puppies were immediately welcomed into her loving home and made to feel like part of her family. Lisa exercised them daily with walks, balls in the courtyard and most fun of all - trips to dog beach! After each trip to the beach, Lisa bathed and brushed them. Lisa was also very accommodating with my schedule as I stopped by for visits when I was able. In addition to all of the fun, Lisa worked with them on recall and other commands. When I took my pups for walks and it was time to return to Lisa, they wagged their tails and hurried to greet her. They were clearly happy in her home. That is exactly what I was looking for!

Lisa is terrific! My dog had a great time at her house and I would definately use her again. It was obvious that she is doing doggie vacay for the love of animals. To me, that made the whole experience easy and wonderful. If you saw her at dog beach, you would not know she was watching someone else's dogs . The dogs in her care were chasing balls, running in the tide and having a blast. They obeyed her when she called them and they all got bathed after the beach. As I observed her, it was clear the dogs in her care were in doggie heaven! If Lisa has space for your pooch, and accepts your reservation, you and your pooch are very lucky!

I truly can not ask for more! Lisa is absolutely fabulous with my tiny 9 week old Lucy. She gives her the attention a little puppy needs, which is hard for anyone to do! I recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking for an incredibly qualified dog sitter with decades of animal experience.

We left our Golden Retriever at Lisa's house for the day and she was just wonderful with him! Sent really cute pictures of him and took him to dog beach to get a ton of exercise! When we picked him up he was clean, brushed and worn out from having such a great day! Lisa was so nice and we highly recommend her as a dog sitter.

Lisa was such a gracious, attentive, kind, knowledgeable host and has such a clear affinity for dogs! This was my first experience with DogVacay, so I was a tad nervous, as I'm sure many folks are. From the moment I received the acceptance from Lisa and subsequent messages, I felt relieved. When I met her, I knew for sure my dog, Izzy, would be safe and would even make a new friend! Lisa made the effort to find out about all of Izzy's comforts and needs to prepare for her stay. She told me about all of the activities she had planned for the weekend to make sure I was comfortable, and went out of her way to send me multiple updates on how Izzy was doing throughout her stay - even pictures! Lisa was more than accommodating with our schedule and was just a joy to work with. In addition to all of those wonderful things, Lisa is very experienced with dogs and understands behavioral indicators and training needs. As an amateur dog-owner, I felt like Izzy was staying with someone who could give her even better care than me! So, I am definitely in the Lisa fan club.

Lisa - I can't thank you enough.

DogVacay-ers - you've found the best there is! No more cages and worrying about your beloved cuddly canines!
