About E. L.

Hi Dog Parents!
Our Mom & Dad are total dog lovers. They built a home for us with specific dog considerations such as a private boarding area with outdoor access to a double fenced dog yard for in-home boarding when they travel. Our home is dog friendly (no carpets) and when its time for us to stretch our legs we have 15,000 square feet of back yard to run, run and run! We are located in the Heights/Garden Oaks/Oaks Forest area which is a convenient drop off & pick up for either airport destination. Mom & Dad make sure we are completely up to date on vaccinations and we love our wonderful Vet (Dr. Silberman) at South West Animal Clinic. Mom works from home and Dad is home by 5:30pm. The weekends are fun when we all sleep in and sometimes sneak on the bed when they are snoring and don’t hear us! It’s a fun place to hang out and we always feel loved.

We have very limited Summer Reservations available in June & July. August still has some flexibility. Please message prior to trying to book.
**Additionally all guests are required to have the canine flu vacciantion.

For first time bookings please use our coupon code for an additional $10.00 off the entire stay. Using the coupon code gives the Guest a discount and the Host a credit, so its a positive for both parties.
Ask prior to first booking and we will provide you with code.

Home Stay Amenities:
*Daily linen change is provided for all dog beds.

*Please bring bed, sleep items, toys, bowls, etc...anything that will help them feel at home.

*Dog(s) may sleep with us in our bedroom or if they prefer alone time & privacy may sleep in the built in dog suite. See photos.

*At check in dog(s) will be provided a RFI tag so they may come in and out of the house via the dog door into the doubled gated dog yard for self guided bathroom breaks and general outside sunbathing. See photo.

*Dog(s) are allowed backyard time 5 times a day (6:30 am, 10:00am, 3:30pm, 6:00pm and 9:30pm) for crazy running time.

*Dog Parents receive a daily photo and progress update via the Dovacay App.

So reliable, kind and helpful... Most trusted with most loved puppers!
Love them and pup does too!
Superstar pup watcher .. Kind, fun and safe!!!
Superstar pup person.. So nice, caring and responsible. Total trust and thankful.
super best .. again! luv them .. my pup is always happy to go and bright eyed when i pick her up. AAAAAAAAAAAA+++++++
Seriously couldn't ask for better customer service! I found out at noon that I had to go out of state for work. I texted Liana and dropped Pearl off at 330p to stay for two nights. Thanks for helping out with an emergency on such short notice, you two!
Mini loves her Dogvacay family so much she needs regular visits! I love it so much that when I am in need of the service I have a great sense of ease that I know she will be cared for with lots of care and love!!!
Liana is an incredible host! Her home is perfectly set up for dogs- from a huge double fenced yard, to indoor wood floors and furniture that make the dogs feel welcome. She was very thorough in vetting me, with the meet and greet between our dogs, and the entire process. I have never felt more comfortable or assured that my dog is safe and happy! The daily pictures were quite honestly so adorable. Thank you!
LOVE them!!! Super on everything that makes for a happy happy pup and a happy happy owner. Thank you again for all the help!! xoxoxo
always always always super great .. another terrific stay for my pup. they are kind, helpful, responsible and fun pup sitters. my dog loves them ... me too.
Liana and Jeff are great! They communicate very well and are just good with my dog. I know Pearl loves to visit them and their dogs, so it really eases my mind about leaving her with them.

They are also very flexible about drop-off and pick-up times. It's so nice because sometimes plans change, but they absorb changes very nicely.
super duper fantastic! happy happy puppy! happy happy owner with super updates. AAA
Love them!! My pup is always happy, healthy and safe!
Great as always......they gave Jinx her first birthday cake!
as always ... just love them!! my pup looks forward to staying with them and I look forward to the freedom that comes with having such confidence in their care of my little one. i give ELW 20 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So glad that Lucy was well taken care of while we were gone! We had zero re-adjustment time at home, so she was obviously comfortable at her "weekend get-away".
Excellent as always!!! Thanks you guys for providing Jinx with such a safe and loving place!
Superstar! Everything you could possibly hope to find in pup watcher. As always, ... thorough, thoughtful, fun, kind and the pups just love her. Big thumbs up!
Liana and Jeff are awesome! They take great care of our girls while we're gone. We have absolutely no worries and that makes each trip so much more fun. Their girls and ours are an unlikely pair but they absolutely love each other and have so much fun together. I love the pictures we get on our trips. Our girls are always integrated right into the family, cuddling with Jeff and Liana on the couch or making themselves at home in Violet and Lilo's beds. It's so nice to see! We can't wait for our next trip, knowing our girls will be cared for as if they were at home!
Super awesome, again! They are so nice, fun and responsible with my pup. My puppy was welcomed and cared for as though she was a member of their family. The hosts sent me wonderful photo updates that truly gave me the freedom to enjoy my trip with the confidence my little one was happy and health. Can't say enough great things about them!!
Super on everything!! It was my 7 mos old pup's first time away from me and I was nervous leaving the little rascal. No worries necessary .. she was happy, healthy, safe and spoiled. It was perfect .. received photos, txt updates, inquires for anything they needed. Just the happiest pup on return. I can not say enough good things. I enjoyed my vacay more knowing she was in good hands. Love them!
Bentley had a lot of fun and came home tired from all the play time. We are always happy to have Bentley spend his vacation here.
Wonderful as always- Jinx always looks healthy and happy when I pick her up :). Thanks Liana and Jeff!
My girls loved staying with this family! They were very accommodating when we missed our connecting flight and they have to keep our dogs for an extra half day. Our girls had so much fun playing with their doggies and they came home exhausted. I loved seeing all of the pictures and videos all week while we were gone. It definitely made me feel like they were well taken care of. We will definitely be boarding our dogs with this family again. Thanks, y'all!
Mini always has big fun at E.L.W's and is well taken care of! CC
Excellent as always!
We left our rat terrier with them for 10 days and felt that he had a great time. We received pictures and updates letting us know how he was doing. They obviously love dogs and it shows:).
They were so welcoming and friendly! You can tell they are true animal lovers. They were willing and able to learn and deal with our dog's quirks, which really put us at ease. We loved all the updates they gave us and felt really confident that our dog was having lots of attention while we were away. He usually has some separation anxiety and gets pouty with us when we get home from a trip, but he has been totally normal upon our return this time. He must have loved his stay! We are so glad they are willing to have him back again :)
great as always! we never worry when our lil one is left at this lovely home....
Perfect service. Janosch was very happy joining Violet and Leeloo and their parents. Received pictures from Janosch every day and felt very comfortable knowing that he had a good time. Thanks, CU next time. Janosch, Philip and Alex
Cookie and Teddy had a great time with Violet and Leloo...and I never worried one bit! This was Teddy's first long dogvacay, and I think he did pretty well for a 6 month old! The Winklers are infinitely patient :) They truly love dogs and know how to make them feel at home.
Liana is absolutely awesome! Our puppy loved her stay here. It's very obvious that Liana is extremely attentive to her dogs and her guest dogs - she could tell us everything about Lemon's personality. We didn't have to worry at all while we were on vacation, and could tell by the daily picture how much fun she was having. Would recommend her in a heartbeat.
Awesome as always!
Always great as usual!!
Bentley had a fun holiday season with Violet and Leeloo and enjoyed his winter break! It's always great knowing that he has fun and is well taken care of!
Bentley had tons of fun while we were on vacation. He returned home from his vacation with Violet and Leeloo tired from how much fun he had! Bentley enjoys getting his own vacations while we are out of town.
Cookie and now Teddy, had a great time with Lilo and Violet! Always a great experience with this family :)
Jinx has stayed with them before and loves it there!! She gets along well with the other resident dogs and seems to be spoiled almost as much as when she is with us ;). She looks very healthy and pooped when we pick her up (which is a good thing).
I highly recommend E.L. as a host. E.L. treated my dog as her own and gave her the love and attention that she needed. I was kept informed with updates and photos and I can honestly say that I did not worry while away. I would love for Disco to stay with E.L. again and I know Disco would love it too.

Thank you so much!!!!!
Bentley had another fun time over the Easter weekend! He returned home tired from all the fun he had playing! He is looking forward to the next time he gets to hang out with his friends! A wonderful experience as always!
Cookie has so much fun when staying with these guys that she doesn't want to come home! I trust them completely and that's the best!
Liana was awesome! She is very welcoming and offers great advice. I felt very comfortable during our meet-n-greet and she had no problem showing me around their home. Because of this I knew exactly where my Jack would be hanging out for the weekend. Jack loved their backyard! By the time I went to pick him up he seemed very attached to Liana which showed me he was well loved. I liked knowing that Jack was able to sleep upstairs with them like they were one big family. I highly recommend E.L.W and will definitely use them again.
E.L.W. have great facilities for dogs of any size and need. They are warm and kind and were very flexible with the craziness that went on while organizing our dogs stay. They were very open and honest and showed me practically every inch of their home. Their back yard areas, doggy wash area and the technology they have for the dogs is impressive. They have cared for sick dogs so they are well equipped and their puppies are so awesome and friendly. Thanks E.L.W for loving our little guy for a few days!
E.L. W. took great care of our dog while we were on vacation. He seemed very happy there. We would not hesitate to recommend them.
Finding Liana and Jeff has been a godsend for us and our dog Betty. She didnt do very well at the mass boarding places, and usually took days to get back to normal again after her stay. Liana and Jeff are wonderful, caring hosts who brought Betty into their home and treated her as one of their own. We couldnt ask for better and neither could Betty. I can always tell how she has fared while we are gone, and this time she came back happy and perfect. Thanks for everything and a place we can call Betty's second home. We can now go away without any worries at all.
E.L. is awesome !!! Our plane was delayed about 4 hours at JFK on Super bowl Sunday. We arrived at HOU 7:15pm instead of 3:15pm. EL brought my boy back to my house at 7:30pm, even she missed her Super bowl game. Thank you!!!!
EL always does a fantastic job making Jada a part of their home. During this stay, Jada had some unusual nausea and EL let us know immediately, took Jada in to our vet and administered medication and prescription food for us. I wouldn't have had her do anything differently and we were very comforted to know that she was in good hands with the attention she needed! Thanks EL!
Jeff and Liana are great- our pup, Jinx, has a blast playing with their two pups. She always look healthy and content when we pick her up which, of course, makes us feel happy. They take their guardianship very seriously which is so comforting.
Our dog had a wonderful time during his stay! He enjoyed being able to run and play outside in the backyard and had fun with his new friends! We were kept updated on how our dog was doing while we were gone and they were extremely accomodating to our dog's needs!
Although I missed my Jinx terribly while I was gone I knew she was in good hands- E.L. kept me updated on photos and texts. Jinx seemed right at home with her two other pups. When I picked Jinx up she looked healthy and happy. We look forward to going back!
E. L. was so sweet and made us feel very comfortable! She really paid attention to the needs of our girl Jinx and I I know that she is a dog lover. She was very conscience of making sure her pups got along with ours and obviously that is very important. Look forward to many more stays....
Cookie had so much fun with Liana, Jeff, Violet and Leelo...I think she hesitated on coming home with me! ha ha Loved the updates and daily photos. I knew Cookie was in good hands and there was no reason to worry whatsoever :) I highly recommend this dog loving family! They have an incredible yard and dog friendly home.
Emryss and her husband were wonderful hosts! They quickly got Jada settled into their routine and kept me updated. Thanks again for taking care of our family while we were gone!
