About Lisa

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work out of the home so there is someone here to be with your pup. I am a huge dog lover, have worked in dog rescue, and have a three pack of my own. My dogs are family and yours will be too. I like to think of my home as a vacation place for your dog. You know what they say...when you're away your pup will play.

My house has a secure large fenced backyard for your pup to go out in plus a nature trail in our neighborhood that runs along a creek that I take the dogs out on daily. I am also lucky enough to be a few miles away from a dog park and near the national battlefield to go hiking. I can provide as much activity for your dog as you like. I will be more than happy to keep you updated with texts, pics, and emails.

I have taken numerous training classes with my dog, Kensy. Including basic obedience, agility, and a tricks class. We actually work as a pet therapy team with Happy Tails. I am also very familiar with dogs who are shy or skittish. I have a puppy mill breeder dog (she is our third) and know the special care that is required. Last year I lost our senior dog who had a lot of medical issues (including insulin) so I am very comfortable working with dogs who may have special needs.

Our pups love other dogs and always welcome a new playmate. Since I have three dogs I will only accept up to two other dogs to watch at one time. I want to make sure every dog gets the love, attention, and care they need. I do not crate and your dog will be welcome in every part of our house. I'll admit, ours even sleep on the bed.

Choose Bed n' Biscuits because your dog needs a vacation too.

Please Read Notes:

* I do not accept dogs with incontinence issue or dogs that are not fully potty trained. All male dogs must be neutered.

*I require vet documents showing that all pups are current on all vaccinations and that your pup is currently on flea and tick preventative. It ensures the safety of all the dogs.

** Due to pups coming and going and trying to coordinate schedules if pickup time is after 3pm there is a full day charge.

We were very pleased with Lisa and her family. The photos were greatly appreciated. Bronko seemed to have a great time. He wants to go for a ride in the car at every opportunity, I'm sure to go back to visit.
Ty has had two more stays with Lisa in the two months: each one for over 5 nights, which is a long time in "dog nights". He has to have a couple of pills, special food, and only certain treats due to inflammatory bowel disease, but Lisa handles this all with organization and grace. The photos and updates assured me once again that Ty felt right at home. We don't usually travel often, and planning & packing tend to frazzle me; knowing that Ty is all set up to happily go to Lisa's takes one major worry off my plate. Ty is sometimes a bit sensitive (mostly an act), but he settles right in at Lisa's house.

My nine-year-old German Shepherd/Beagle mix Pepper had a most enjoyable weekend with Lisa! We had a meet and greet a few months before, and I felt confident that Pepper would be content and in good hands.
Lisa sent pictures and updates about Pepper throughout the weekend, and I could tell that my girl was as happy as she is in her own home.
If you are looking for a sitter who will care for your dog like one of your own, look no further than Lisa. You won't be disappointed!! :-)

Lisa was a great host for our two dogs. She was very flexible with scheduling which I really appreciated. She did a great job finding out what their typical schedule was and ensuring they were comfortable, even though one of my dogs is a little shy. I got regular updates without asking. I will definitely book with her again!

Lisa is awesome. She makes sure your pets feel at home and they get all the attention they need. And she also made sure I got all the updates I needed to feel at ease. Thanks Lisa!
Lisa is the best! She sent us updates, pictures and/or videos every day while we were gone. It is obvious she cared greatly for our dog Gracie while she was in her home. Gracie has nightly oral medication she has to take and Lisa was completely all right with administering this. She is easy to communicate with and wants to be of help and service. We will definitely be using Lisa again!

We love Lisa!!! She and her pups were great with Bailey!! The best part she got Bailey to eat her food!!! Lisa is so good with Bailey and gave her lots of love!
We left Bailey, our Golden Retriever, with Lisa when we had to leave town to visit a sick relative. I was apprehensive at first because Bailey needs a calm environment and takes medication. Well, Lisa and her pack are the sweetest and Bailey had a wonderful time! Lisa emailed me pictures and updates every day so I never had to wonder how she was doing. I never felt more at ease leaving Bailey with anyone. She enjoyed her time with Lisa so much that she actually seemed bored for her first day back at home! We will definitely call on Lisa whenever we need care for Bailey in the future.

Lisa was awesome. We had to book on short notice and she was very accommodating with the meet and greet and then took our dog just a few days later. Thanks so much, Lisa!! Basil will be back soon.
My Dymund was so comfortable with Lisa and her doggie family. Lisa listened closely to the instructions of what Dymund needed and executed them flawlessly. The pictures she sent me daily made me feel so happy to see Dymund in a home and not a 100 dog kennel. I have another trip already planned and will surely sign Dymund up to be with Lisa.

My 14 year old poodle is rarely around dogs sometimes I wonder if he even knows he's a dog. Usually he becomes so anxious he gets sick when we have to take a trip without him. But not this time, We had a meet and greet and then the vacation stay the following week.

Everything was fabulous, Brutus was happy as a lark during the entire stay.

The pictures throughout the stay reinforced my feelings that Brutus picked the right person, Lisa was more than anyone could ask for as a caretaker, she's definetly a true professional beyond measure. A true display of genuine care and concern with a lot of love thrown in.

If Brutus could talk I know he would be asking, can I go back Moma, can I can I please go back.

Definetly will request her services again and highly recommend to anyone in need of a vacation stay for your doggy.

Thank you Lisa!

My dog, Shug, loved her time with Lisa! I was worried because she's a rescue and has only been with us a few months. I couldn't image sending her to a kennel. Lisa was great! She took great care of Shug and even sent us some pictures!!!
Lisa was super! We set up a "meet and greet" so that our dogs (Italian Greyhounds) could meet Lisa's three dogs, that are much larger. Meeting went great and her dogs were not even interested in ours after the initial five minutes! All of our questions were answered and we did not feel rushed. She even took us outside to see where they would be when let out to "potty".

When we dropped our boys off, Lisa was ready for us and everything went smoothly. We received pictures on a daily basis and it seems our boys became attached to Lisa's husband! Luckily, he didn't seem to mind. They were even allowed to sleep in the bed.

We could not have asked for a more attentive caretaker (and her husband, of course) and the fact that our little ones were in a home environment and NOT in a kennel environment with 30 other dogs, was Superb! They came home and, of course, were tired, but not stressed! We will definitely use Lisa in the future if she is available. Thank you Lisa!

Wonderful as always! Tom and Olivia always get so much love and attention at Lisa's house. We will definitely be booking her again in the future.
We appreciate Lisa sooooo much!
We are always pretty hesitant when leaving our Onyx with any one but Lisa makes it easier. Our baby Onyx loves her and is very comfortable with her home and caretaking. She is "THE BOMB DIGGITY" and we highly recommend her!

Lisa is a FABULOUS hostess! Our Onyx loves her! Thanks Lisa for making it so easy to leave our precious pup with you!
Our two 13 year old retrievers enjoyed their stay with Lisa and her 3 pups. We hate to leave them at the vet at their age. Lisa was very patient and loving with our nervous girls.

One of our girls is terrified of thunder storms and of course there was bad weather when we were gone. Lisa didn't bat an eye when she had to get up in the middle of the night to calm her down. I know from experience it takes awhile.

Thanks Lisa!

Lisa is a fabulous sitter for our Onyx. He was so comfortable that he wasn't alarmed as we left him with Lisa for the first time! The environment she provides is very comforting for the dogs and it feels like home! When we leave town again, we will certainly feel at ease leaving Onyx with Lisa!

Lisa took great care of Georgie- her love for animals is obvious. Thank you
Our Ty had another great stay with Lisa. I could tell by the photos she shared that he felt very much at home there, to the extent of being a lapdog at times. I love my vet and his practice, but I prefer DogVacay for my boarding needs; the comfortable home setting and personalized attention give me peace of mind.

Our pups had a wonderful weekend with Lisa! Olivia can't wait to see Goliath again. Thank you so much for taking such good care of our precious cargo.
Our 2 dogs love staying with Lisa. When you know your furry friends are loved when you are away, your vacation is stress free and enjoyable. So if you want a worry free vacation, book with Lisa. She is awesome!
Lisa was very friendly from the first time we took our dog Gracie to meet her. It was obvious that she had both a lot of experience with animals, as well as a great amount of care and love for them as well. Lisa sent us multiple pictures while we were on our trip as well as email updates. We would definitely use her again...

Trinity had a wonderful time with Lisa and her husband. To say they spoiled her was an understatement and I got photo updates twice a day showing me all the fun she was having with her new friends. Trinity slept the whole car ride back :) Thank you for taking such good care of my furbaby. I highly recommend Lisa!

Lisa and her husband treat our dogs as if they were their own. We enjoy our vacation so much more when we know they are treated so well.
Lisa was great and our greyhound seemed right at home. She was a breeze to communicate with and though we were quite swamped on vacation we enjoyed checking our email and seeing pictures of our pup having fun on walks, sunning in the yard and hanging with her new friends. This was our first time booking with dogvacay and we couldn't have had a more positive experience. Thank you!!

The best feeling a pet owner can have is security when leaving a pet with someone else. Lisa was and exceptional host. She took our dog for walks and to the dog park. She sent lots of photos of my dog's activities and i could see he was in good hands. We were very pleased with Lisa.

Charlie Brown and a wonderful time and was well taken care of with Lisa. He really loved being there and having other dogs to play with. I highly recommend using Lisa for your pets vacation.
I can not say enough about our experience with Lisa. I was very anxious about leaving our dog for the first time. She reassured me that everything would be fine when we dropped home off. She made sure she emailed me each day how he was doing and sent pictures . My daughter looked forward to the pictures everyday. I loved that he was not caged the whole week and played with the other dogs. It's was a wonderful experience!

Our two Bernese Mountain dogs just got back from their vacation with Lisa. Lisa clearly loves animals and provided our two dogs all of the love they needed while we were away. She & her husband took them out for walks and even provided some great photos of our pups along with her clan. I would highly recommend her! Thanks, Lisa, we'll be back!

When our regular sitter was booked for our vacation dates, we were concerned about leaving our doggies in an unfamiliar setting. We made the right choice with Lisa! Sami and Tyson loved their stay at Lisa's. We could tell by the pictures she sent and when we brought them home....they were happy, happy, happy! We highly recommend Lisa!

Chewy just had his second stay with Lisa! He loved every second of it! Thank you again Lisa!
Lisa has a natural affinity to animals, she took wonderful care of Paige while we were out of town. She sent daily photos and messages, was very accommodating with drop off and pick ups, and even created a custom quote for my unexpected extra night On the road. She has three very loving and gentle dogs of her own, therefore, Paigey fit right in as part of the family. I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking for someone to care for their pet while traveling.

This was the first time our dog was away from home without us. He can be a bit shy at first, but Lisa and her dogs made him feel right at home, and she e-mailed me the next morning with a first-night report. Hearing that he had settled in quickly and was doing well put my mind at ease as we started on a cruise vacation (where we would not have e-mail or phone contact). Lisa took several photos throughout the week, which we were able to see as soon as we got back to shore, and our dog looked quite content. When we went to pick him up he didn't even seem terribly excited to see us . . . a sign that he felt secure in his DogVacay home. I highly recommend Lisa; she is dog-savvy and knows how to reassure both canines and humans.

Chewy really enjoyed his time with Lisa and her three adorable pups! Chewy made himself right at home and even made friends with the cat! She sent pictures everyday and called with updates. My flight back home was delayed and Lisa was very accommodating and kept Chewy an extra night. I highly recommend Lisa! She is absolutely wonderful!
