About Lisa

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay at home mom to two girls ages 3 and 6. We have a 5 year old dog named Gibson. He is Irish setter and black lab. He loves every person he meets and does a great job of accepting all these pups into his house. We also have a 8 year old Maltipoo named Cleo that we adopted from a client.
We live in a large development with 3 parks and Lake Sawyer within walking distance. We love to go for walks regardless of the weather. Our kids love playing around with all the pooches that come to visit.
On nice days we take our girls and our dogs to Lake Sawyer park. We have a minivan so we can easily put several dogs in the car. We can offer a loving home to your dog while you are away. We take our dog everywhere and we will treat your dog the same way. We look forward to meeting you and your pup!

About this sitter:
Hi my name is Lisa. I have two daughters. Olivia who is 3 and Chloe who is 6. Over the past 20 years I helped raise six Guide dogs for Guide Dogs For The Blind. Two of my dogs have gone on to Guide people in the United States. So as you can tell I am a dog lover!
I have been dog sitting for over three years now and I love every minute. I have made so many friends along the way and my kids love all the different pups that stay with us.

Why I love dog sitting
I have been a dog lover ever since I was a little girl. We got our first dog when I was 4. Throughout my childhood my parents raised Guide Dogs. My senior project in high school was raising a Guide Dog named Sierra.

About my yard
We have a medium sized backyard that is fenced in and well taken care of.

My experience administering medication
I have lots of experience giving medication for dogs. Over the years of taking care of dogs it has become second nature to me :)

Great family environment for my aussies.
Thank you Lisa for letting Maddie hang out with you, your family, Gibson and furry friends. Gibson and the furry friends that were there at the Meet and Greet were happy and eager to meet us. She was a little shy then, but when I brought her over for her stay, she marched in like she was the boss. I have never left her before but I felt she would be well taken care of in your care. Thank you for all the updates and pictures during her stay to re-assure me that she was enjoying her time at your Gibson Guest House. Especially enjoyed the message a few hours after I left her telling me she was doing good and the many pictures that followed. Thank you again for welcoming her into your home for a kennel free stay and all the play time with her new friends. We look forward to seeing you again this summer and for vacation time in September.

Perfect home away from home!! Thanks Lisa.
Lisa and her family are great! She and her husband are very knowledgeable about dogs and their care.
When went for our meet and greet she had 3 dogs under her care. I was pleasantly surprised that her house didn't smell like dogs and her carpets were clean! Our dog is almost 15 and is thrilled to be around people. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone who needs a dog sitter!

Thank you again to Lisa and her family for their care for our Cassie. Receiving pictures of Cassie comfortable in their home is very comforting while we are away.
Lisa was amazing! She sent me pictures of Rudy while I was out if town and updated me on how he was doing. She was very easy to communicate with and she took great care of Rudy while we were away. I would definitely recommend her if you are searching for someone to look over your pooch!

Thank you Lisa and your family for taking care of Maya so we could go on vacation. We enjoyed the pictures you sent us. We would love to use your service again!
My yorkies Baby and Cody ages 12 and 7 stayed at Lisa's house for 8 days. I don't know what goes on at Lisa's house but my dogs were only mildly excited to see me. That has NEVER happened before in all these years. Both dogs are usually desperate to see me and leave. This is the first time both dogs were really content when I came to pick them up. Lisa sent many pictures and a video and she worked with me on drop off and pick up times. Plus my dogs were clean. I will definitely be back if she will take my dogs again! Lisa is remarkable! There is no doubt...she loves dogs...:)

Lisa is fantastic! Max came home worn out but happy. The pics & video she sent helped with how much we were missing him and showed how well he was doing on his first time away from home. I will never use anyone else. Lisa has a dog friendly home, i.e. welcome on furniture, and a great fenced yard for playtime. Couldn't be more satisfied & happy with Lisa & the care Max received in her home while we were away! Thanks again Lisa & Eric!!!

She did a great job of helping us to feel comfortable leaving our pup while we were out of town. She sent pictures daily and always kept us posted on how he was doing! Thanks Lisa!
Lisa H was very good with Cash. Cash had fun and a great area to play with the other dogs. This was a great experience for us and Cash. She was very flexible about drop off and pick up times. Highly recommend....
Once again our Cassie had a great time with Lisa and her family. We are so thankful she has a safe and loving place. The pictures that Lisa sends are comforting and cute!
Once again Cassie had a great time with Lisa and her family! It is so nice to know that Cassie loves to go to their home. As we get closer to their home she starts bouncing around the car knowing where she is going. We are always nervous about being apart from Cassie, but Lisa gives us comfort in knowing she is in a good place. And, the daily pictures of Cassie looking happy and comfortable makes it even better!

Lisa was very easy to communicate with, and was very accommodating with pick-up and drop-off times. She sent us pictures of our dog every day while we were away, and when we got home, it was obvious she had been well cared for. Lisa even gave her a bath! Very happy to have found Lisa to care for our dog!

Lisa is a 5 star for sure! She is awesome and our dog Elby loves to stay there! :)
Buddy was well taken of at Lisa's. He came home content and happy. Lisa also sent photos every day of Buddy which was nice. I hope to use Lisa again in the future. Thanks.
Once again Lisa and her family welcomed our Cassie into their home. When we booked the reservation, we told Lisa that Cassie needed to play. And play she did! We received picture updates of her playing and even one where she was all tuckered out. When she got home, she was happy, tired and content. Thank you to Lisa and the Family!

We appreciated Lisa's timely communication and flexibility and it was fun to get the pictures of our dog throughout the week. Thanks so much for taking care of our dog and givIng us peace of mind!
Lisa was fantastic! She is flexible, communicative, and clearly loves dogs. We booked this long weekend on fairly short notice, and she was very flexible with our timing. We have left our dogs with her multiple times and look forward to doing so again in the future.

Lisa was fantastic! She is flexible, communicative, and clearly loves dogs. We have left our dogs with her multiple times and look forward to doing so again in the future. Her own dog is super friendly and gets along well with everyone, and our dogs clearly have a good time staying with them.

Our 2 year old Cassie had a wonderful time with Lisa and her family. We were able to meet her and knew immediately that our baby would enjoy her home and care. Lisa sent us pictures each night to provide comfort while we were traveling. When we brought Cassie home, she was happy and warm and curled up with us. It was very apparent that she had a good time too!

Lisa did a two week long term boarding for me and I could not be happier! While I was away on my trip she updated me with daily pictures of my GSD which helped me stay relaxed!! Lisa even groomed him!... I will only board with Lisa and recommend her to all.

It was awesome to know that my pug was able to be around other people and dogs and not in a kennel with attention!! I got lots of updates and pictures of him while I was gone...... That eased my missing him..... He seemed to be happy;)
Louie's stay was great. He is always excited to spend time with Lisa and her family. I really think he is treated like one of their own.
Lisa was an excellent host for our two small dogs on a long 18-day trip. She was communicative, sending frequent, friendly messages with pictures to update us. Her excellent communication extended to very prompt responses about details like the meetup, drop-off, and pickup times. Lisa was always friendly and helpful, and she seemed to handle dogs well. Her house and backyard are perfect places for dogs to stay, and we couldn't be happier with the home away from home that she provided for our dogs. We look forward to checking with Lisa first whenever we need to board our dogs in the future, and we would definitely refer our friends her way.

Lisa and her family were terrific. Lisa sent me pictures daily showing Jesse and Que had settled in nicely. I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing that they were happy, comfortable and well cared for.
Another terrific stay with Lisa. She is so great about sending pictures everyday that always put a smile on my face. She really tends to Louie as if he were her own. Always willing to be flexible on our drop off and pick up times. She is great to work with.

Gibson's House and Lisa are wonderful. Toby loves staying at such a fun and caring place.
I have had nothing but excellant experiences with living my dog with Lisa and her family. They are awesome. My dog Charlieann sleeps with Lisa's oldest daughter on her bed. How about that!!!
I always get the cutest pictures from Lisa, sometimes 2 or 3 a day. Its wonderful to see what Charlieann is doing while I am gone.

You will love this family and the wonderful care they give to their charges!!!

Love ya Lisa

As usual Lisa was wonderful with my dog Charlieann. She always sends me pictures and I can't tell you how wonderful that is. She is such a sweet lady and seems to really like my Charlieann.. Thank you Lisa for being there for us!!!
Lisa and her wonderful family were great to my crazy German Shepherd!... I will never go anywhere else and I highly recommend her! (if I could give her 6 stars I would!)
Another great stay with Lisa. Louie comes home and is exhausted from playing and all the attention he gets. She is great to work with and does a fantastic job of making him feel at home. Sends a picture each day of what he is doing. Highly recommend.

Lisa and her family were the perfect sitters for my dog Charlieann. Charlie enjoyed her visit and I felt comfortable right away when I dropped her off.
charlie even got to sleep with Lisa's oldest daughter and I know that made Charlie feel better as she always sleeps with me.
This family cares about dogs and treats their guests like one of their own.
What more could I ask for??
Lisa is sweet and patient.
I will be back!!!

Everything was excellent. Lisa posted pictures almost everyday of my dogs stay. My dog seemed to have a great time and was definitely tired when he returned home!!! Will definitely use Lisa again.
Lisa is a great pick! She was very accommodating to my schedule and always kept me updated with cute pictures of Nola during her stay with the family! I could tell she went out of her way to make Nola feel at home. I can't thank her enough! I recommend Lisa 110% without a doubt. :-)

Thanks Lisa!

lisa has very nice family and home and elby had a great time!! If your looking for a sitter I would highly recommend her!
Lisa takes wonderful care or our dog, Toby. She sends photographs of his outings and of him lounging with the family.
Lisa was AWESOME!!! That doesn't even begin to explain or compliment her services! Just got pictures consistently. My puppies are listening to me more since they have been with her. If you are looking for someone to provide beyond excellent care for you four legged love bugs, I would highly recommend Lisa!

Lisa was very kind and took great care of Jazmine. We left town at the last minute, she was very accommodating. We will use her again in the future. Recommend her services. Thank you
We were in a rush to get out dog Prudence taken care of before we left for a 10 day vacation. Lisa was so quick with her response and we were able to check out her place the same day I contacted her. Lisa was so sweet to us by sending us pictures almost every day so we could see our puppy and she even gave Prudence a bath before we came to pick her up! :) We will definitely be contacting Lisa again whenever we head out of town!

Lisa was great! This was our first time using dogvacay.com and we will definitely be going back to Lisa. She was quick to respond to any questions we had and the picture updates of Maxie's stay was awesome! It was comforting to know that our pup was being taken care of in Lisa's home as if Maxie was their own dog. Highly recommended :-)

Lisa was great to work with. She sent us pictures to keep us updated and know that Jack was comfortable. And he must have had a lot of fun, because he come home exhausted! We will definitely use Lisa again.
Great communication, and loved the photo updates each day! Cleo had a great time :)
