About Liz

42 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an energetic and devoted animal lover with experience caring for dogs, cats, and farm animals. I will treat your dog like a prince or princess, just like my bearded collie, Zeb, with lots of hugs and attention. He happily shares his toys and plays with any dog who enjoys the company. I love and have rescued all kinds of animals and live on a ranch, with fiber producing angora goats, llamas, and miniature donkeys. Dogs love to see the farm animals off in the distance.

I seldom leave the ranch and am here to supervise your pet. My non-smoking home is equipped with a monitored alarm system, that includes smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide detection.

Each dog's stay is tailored their temperament, age, size, and energy level. We have a giant fenced yard where your FurBaby can romp during playtime or just visit for potty breaks, all while being supervised for safety. Dogs that enjoy other dogs can join in group play. In warm months, we play with the water hose and offer a dog bone shaped pet pool. Dogs that prefer to be couch potatoes are welcome to do so; your furbaby can hang out on the sofa and watch TV. Your dog will be offered a LATE night potty break-- no holding it for hours on end. Your precious furbabies will be in a heated and cooled home and supervised. Dogs sleep indoors.

For the past 42 years, I've always had a dog in my life, for which I was the caretaker (and sometimes several at a time, as I have rescued a few). I know your furbaby is a member of the family. I love my dog, Zeb, just like he is my little child and Zeb and I would love to meet and play with your dog!

Please bring your pup's food and a copy of his or her shot records. All dogs must be current on vaccines and have had a "kennel cough" vaccine in the past 6 months. Please make sure that your pet is current on flea treatment. I accept puppies over 4 months of age. This is for their safety, as their immunity isn't at its peak prior to this time. I prefer neutered and spayed dogs older than 6 months. Contact me to discuss any dogs that are not fixed, as they may require special accommodations.

You can bring a special toy if you like, just label it. When your furbaby dog stays with me, it really helps if you fill out the information on this form and bring it with you at drop off: http://blog-photos.dogvacay.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/vacay_hosting_form.pdf . Just paste the link in your browser to get to the Dog Vacay form about your pet's needs.

Thanks for reading about our ranch retreat. We hope to see y'all soon! :)

My four dogs had a great time at Liz's, she took very good care of them. Finally I found someone and somewhere I feel comfortable leaving my babies!!
My 3 dogs stayed with Liz over Christmas weekend. They had a blast!!! They were excited to see us but slept all the way home, all night and lazy today....LOL! Usually one pup wants to play fetch ALL the time. He was too tired. She kept me today....LOL! Usually one pup wants to play fetch ALL the time. He was too tired. She kept me updated the whole time and sent pictures through out the day. I will definitely use her again.

We drove out to meet Liz in person and see the ranch before deciding to entrust her with our 7 month old pup while we went on a family cruise over Thanksgiving. Ennis was on our way from Dallas to galveston so it was very convenient. The ranch is Thanksgiving. Ennis was on our way from Dallas to galveston so it was very convenient. The ranch is a great opportunity for high energy dogs to get out and run run run and play play play!!!

In the past our last dog would get very anxious when we took out the suitcases knowing we were leaving town. I think our new pup is going to be excited to see luggage knowing he gets to go back to camp furbaby. Gideon has food allergies so he needed special arrangements at meal time to keep him from scoffing anyone else's food (he's a piglet) and I felt comfortable Liz would keep him safe. At dropoff, he wasn't anxious at all and was equally content when we picked him up. We thoroughly enjoyed getting daily photos and video to see how much fun he was having with her bearded collie zeb. When we picked him up it was evident he had a blast and enjoyed his vacation.

I'm so happy to have found his new auntie liz and we will make the drive out to ennis even when it's not on our way if we are leaving town! This really felt like a win for him rather than surviving the week of necessary boarding. So so so happy we found her!
