About Lisa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
At Casa de Louie we do our best to make your pet feel right at home and welcome them into our family during their stay.

I have over 15 years experience caring for, training, fostering and boarding dogs of all breeds, ages, sizes and temperaments. I ran the puppy socialization and training program at the SPCA of Tompkins County for over 7 years and have extensive experience using only positive training methods to help dogs with behavior issues. I also am experienced caring for dogs with special medical needs. For fun, I am an avid agility enthusiast and have some training equipment at home that your dog can explore!

I have 2 well behaved and friendly pups of my own, Chloe (10 year old jrt/beagle) and Sonny (4 year old terrier mix). There is also 1 very dog friendly cat, Buddha, who has full access to the house and yard and Otter, who is an energetic young kitty. Needless to say we require all guests to have previous peaceful life experiences with cats.

Our home is modest, quiet, cozy, safe and very dog friendly. While I'm home your pet will be part of the family and have access to the house and fenced in yard with doggy door, just like my own dogs. While I'm out the animals are separated and your pet will have the option of staying wherever s/he is most comfortable whether that be in a blanketed crate, a comfy personal space or loose in their own bedroom.

I ask that our visitors come with their own dog bed or blanket that they're used to and smells like home. They will have the option of sleeping wherever they are most comfortable as well. The majority choose to sleep in my bedroom with us and some even join us on the bed. :)

We have a 100' x 80' fenced in yard which the dogs love! It's a great place for games of fetch and chase! There are also areas with wood piles and tall grass; perfect for sniffing and hunting. We have two different size kiddie pools for dips on hot summer days. And of course relaxing and lounging about is a great option too!

I do work away from home so during the week pets are left indoors for 4 or 5 hours at a time. I come home at lunchtime to get everyone out for a potty break and play session. Weekend time is always devoted to the pups. Your dog will be fed his/her own food provided by you at feeding times you define. Treats offered are healthy and often homemade. Playtime, walks, toys, treats and Premium Pet Insurance are all included at no extra charge. I love sharing their experiences and send frequent photos, texts and email updates.

Casa de Louie is conveniently located 5 miles from downtown Ithaca. All dogs of any age or breed, who are dog friendly and also cat friendly, are welcome. We do require an initial meet-n-greet prior to your first stay just to make sure everyone gets along ok. This also gives your dogs a chance to check out the environment prior to his/her stay. Your pup must be up to date on all vaccinations and flea/tick treatments.

Please send an email if you have any questions. And if you have more than one pet ask about our multi-pet discount and cat care too!

Looking forward to meeting you and having your pets stay at Casa de Louie!

My dog had a great stay with Lisa!
Lisa met all of our expectations. She responded quickly to my reservation request and was really flexible about my drop off and pick up times. Her home is equipped and super dog friendly (lots of toys, places for naps and even a doggie door to her fenced-in yard). She sent photos of my dogs at play and at rest. I never doubted the quality of the care they were receiving.

Lisa took excellent care of my dear Rusty! He was spoiled rotten, just like at home. Thank you!
