About Lisa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a semi-retired stay at home dog-parent. That is me and Emma in the photo. She is a sweet old lady of a dog.

I was an IT professional for more than 20 years. Now I want to surround myself with dogs and rub some bellies.

Lisa was great with our elderly ridgeback!! We had to fly out of town for a funeral with very short notice and when we had issues with our return flights she kept her for another night! Lifesaver!!
Lisa is excellent. When I was unable to access pictures of my dog through messaging she sent pictures and info through email. Thanks Lisa.
I am sure Lisa can handle most dogs but my girl proved to be a challenge for her. I believe I stated that my pet was difficult but never the less. She assisted in getting my dog to a better situation and for that I am grateful. R
I'm new to the DogVacay and came across Lisa's profile and decide to give it a try. what do you know? Lisa is Amazing!
she's flexible with my work schedules, thoughtful, caring, kind, and gentle person. I have been placing my puppy at Lisa's facility for a while now and my puppy loved her; more reasons for me to keep coming back to Lisa.
Lisa is paw some. Trooper was well cared for, as usual.
I am pleased and comforted to know my dog is in Lisa's care. Her gentle and friendly nature make her a perfect sitter for my greyhound.
I'm so relieved to have Lisa take care of my hound Pandora. 'Panda' is on 5 medications 3x per day and knowing she will get them at regular intervals puts my mind at ease. Plus, Panda seems to have enjoyed her stay there; other dogs around for company, easy in/out access and Lisa's gentle demeanor are just what Panda needs.
CJ loves having out with Lisa and all the friends she has there. He has a great time and he come home tired!
We have used Lisa a few times and she has been awesome. We have very spoiled doxies and she is very accommodating with special feeding instructions. She is also very accommodating with pick-up and drop-off times which is great for us because our schedules change often.
Lisa is always so great with our dog, Stella!! We ended up staying on vacation one extra day and she was very accommodating to us. I always feel so comfortable leaving our dog with her.
My toy fox terrier, Toby, had an awesome stay with Lisa. She let us bring him over a week before his stay so he could get acquainted with her dog and two other large dogs she cares for often. She was careful to introduce Toby to the other dogs gradually, since he is sometimes nervous around larger dogs, and he did just fine. I will be bringing Toby back this summer!
Lisa is fantastic! She has a great home set-up for all her doggy guests and she takes great care of them. We can rest assured that our pup is in good hands when he stays.
Similar experience as before!
Stay with Lisa is good. Joy enjoys staying at her place. Lisa takes care of feeding him as directed. The entire vacay for joy is very pleasant. The only suggestion for lisa would be providing updates with pictures. Lisa sends texts telling how joy did and it can get better with doing it daily alongwith sending pictures. Regardless, Joy enjoys it and thats more important. I would use Lisa again in a heartbeat.
Trooper obviously felt right at home with Lisa and Miss Emma. Lisa has a very quiet and assured manner with dogs. I would use her again in a heartbeat.
Lisa took great care of Macie while we were gone for 8 days. Even though we missed her terribly, we didn't have to worry a thing about Macie. Lisa is great with dogs, very responsible, and very very nice. Thank you, Lisa for taking care of Macie :D
This was Raine's second time staying with Lisa and she loved it! She had many doggie friends to play and socialize with, which she doesn't get much of at home. Lisa sent us emails and texts with pictures and updates of Raine that helped us feel comfortable being so far apart from her. Lisa is very capable of handling dogs of all sizes and breeds, as I saw when dropping Raine off both times she has stayed with her. Raine suffers from anxiety very easily, and has had trouble adjusting to kennels before, but both times she has stayed with Lisa, she's adapted quickly and fallen back into comfortable home patterns within hours (a very incredible thing for her!) We love Lisa and will be requesting her as a sitter again in the future.
10 Stars to Lisa for keeping Benson! I needed last minute arrangements for him. Lisa was accomodating and put my mind at ease that he would be well cared for and he was.

He loves spending time with other dogs and he got to do that and the care he needed.

Thanks Lisa and Emma (her dog) for making him and us feel like part of the family.
We took a spring break vacation for nearly two weeks and came back to Lisa after she did such a great job over our last vacation. Clementine was happy and healthy staying with Lisa and we will definitely be back again.
Lisa was great taking in Bella for 2 days at her house for daycare. It's very hard to find just daycare without sleep over. Bella got to play & nap with Emma & other guests in her backyard. She was flexible in pick up time which was a big help when I didn't know exactly when I would be finish with my appointment.
Bella stayed with Lisa & Emma for a few hours of daycare to try it out. (She's a rescue about a year old.) I could tell after a few minutes of meeting Lisa she was comfortable at her house & paling around & play with Emma. You can tell Emma is use to having other dogs around. Picking her up Lisa gave me a nice update about Bella saying she was sitting with her, chewing on bone, and playing with toys. Sometimes Bella is shy/wary with strangers but Lisa said she even did well when a friend came over. We are happy Bella had a nice experience & didn't have separation anxiety. We're glad we would Lisa & will use her again.
Fantastic experience! I will use Lisa again - my dog had a great time and the pictures help keep any worries that I may have had at bay and allowed me to enjoy my Christmas!
Lisa was great, she is kind and caring. Stuart & Stella enjoyed their stay.
We were in a pinch to find a sitter for our two dogs over the weekend of our wedding. Lisa came through and we're so lucky to have found her! Pea and Rylie had a great time playing in her backyard with Emma! LOVED the doggie door that let them go out whenever they wanted. Lisa's place was very clean and tidy and I felt very comfortable leaving my girls with her for the weekend. Thank you, Lisa!!! You were a total lifesaver for our wedding weekend!!
Every time we leave our pups with someone new we are always apprehensive and doubtful. BUT we are happy to have found Lisa , Bruno and Rex had great time for 10 days, also it's really nice to get an email update of how the dogs are doing and pictures too :)
I have never used a sitter outside of close friends and family before, so I was a little nervous about leaving Raine in an unfamiliar house. But Lisa was extremely warm and welcoming, and I could tell Raine would be just fine. A big bowl of water was set out for the dogs (she was hosting others as well) and the backyard was easily accessible to them via a doggy door. Lisa put my mind at ease and Raine definitely seemed happy when I picked her up. Thank you, Lisa!
Chloe seemed to have a great time spending the day with Lisa and her dogs. Lisa was great at accommodating us for a daycare session. Thanks Lisa!
Lisa took care of our dog for two weeks during our Christmas vacation and was excellent. She sent me emails every couple days to let me know how our dog was doing and even sent photos. Lisa is a great dogsitter and we will definitely go to her again.
Lisa is great. My dog Sam is usually sad she has to come home with me. Lisa is very accommodating and it has been refreshing doing business with her.
Being a nervous mommie, Lisa put my mind at ease on the first visit; when my Mina went and sat on her foot, that is Mina's way of saying she trusts someone. Puppy seal of approval as far as I was concerned.

Lisa obviously loves dogs, and was quick to respond to texts I sent about Mina. She is willing to give Mina all the attention she desires, and believe me, that is a full time job! Mina loves going to and staying at her NEW home away from home.

Lisa's dog Emma is very loving and playful. Mina loves following her around, and going in and out of Lisa's doggie door. I will only trust Lisa with my Mina!
