About Elizabeth

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello Everyone, my name is Liz and I absolutely adore all types of furry creatures! Unfortunately, I live in an apt. and I am unable to provide pet services in my own home. However, I have over 7 years of experience working with dogs, cats and exotics from being a kennel technician, veterinary assistant, and doggie daycare attendant. In fact this year, I competed in the Houston Dog show showing Basset Hounds as a handler and placed 2nd and 3rd. I also have wildlife experience working as a zookeeper intern at the Houston Zoo and at the TWRC wildlife center. I work with all types of dogs as well as cats and other exotic pets. I would be happy to come to your home for dog walking, dog training, check up visits or taking your pup to Veterinary appointments and overnight sleepovers.

We loved Elizabeth. She did everything we asked her to do and we could tell when we got home that our baby had been well cared for. This is the first time we have had someone come to our house to care for our dog because travel is just too hard on him now with his age. We will definitely use her again.

Elizabeth was amazing! She took excellent care of our pets which included walks and lots of love and attention. She sent photos and updates. I could not have asked for a more professional or personable pet sitter! Highly recommend.
Elizabeth was awesome, she kept us informed everytime she went to walk and feed my dogs, as well as had play time. they had a blast with her, and I will continue to use her in the future.
Our dogs loved Elizabeth! We received so many great pictures from her while we were away. She's our new go-to pet sitter!
Elizabeth is great with our lil furry friends! Will definitely use her again!
Elizabeth was great! Provided photos of her visit with the Simon and Jerry!
Elizabeth came to our house for a meet and greet, walked our dogs during the day one time, and stayed overnight at our house with them for one night. She communicated with me via text messages (sending lots of cute pix) and the dogs seemed happy after her stay. I don't have anything negative to say about Elizabeth and we will be using her again in the future!

Liz was absolutely wonderful with Turtle! She sent updates and pictures while I was away. When I came home I found everything to be perfect and she even left Turtle with a baggie of treats. Very sweet and we shall be booking her again in the future!
Elizabeth was wonderful with Penny. We will not hesitate to use her services again. She obviously loves dogs, and they clearly love her.
She is very attentive and prompt! Always keeps us in the loop with how our dog is doing.
Always the best! She even took Rocket out to dinner in the neighborhood.
Just booked another stay for Rocket. She loves Liz!
Reliable as always!
Elizabeth is great! She was able to accept my last minute reservation, she came to my house to sit my puppy. She showed me pictures of him playing and on their walk, and I was so happy by her level of professionalism and attention to Duke.
This is the first time I used Elizabeth's services. I just moved from Dallas to Houston and I had a pet sitter in Dallas. I had to look for a new one since I had a meeting out of town. I contacted Elizabeth and she responded right away. I had a meet and greet meeting to introduce my dog to her and for me to have an impression of her. She was very attentive and understood everything about my dog. While I was out she sent me several pics of my doggie during each visit she did with her, pics of my doggie eating, playing, kissing her, etc. She kept me informed via text (as I requested) about how my dog was doing. This kept calmed and confident, my dog was in good hands. When I came home, everything was in order and my dog very happy. I will use Elizabeth's services again, she is very sweet and responsible. Kudos to her and Thank you for taking care of Daisy!

As always, excellent service and attention to our pups!
I will definitely be asking Liz to stay with Rocket again. She did an amazing job with keeping Rocket entertained. They went to the dog park, played with the neighbors, etc. As a house sitter, she was also incredibly considerate of my home and left everything tidier than when I left. It's very clear that she loves dogs and knows how to care for them!

Rocket had a great time with Liz. She sent tons of pictures and kept me informed. Even better, she gave Rocket peanut butter Kongs and took her to the dog park to play with her friends.

She has been responsive and very responsible. I will be having her watch Rocket again next week & am looking forward to it.

Elizabeth is great with our little dog pack. The dogs are very happy, and I love the daily photos I receive!
Elizabeth has taken care of my dog on more than half a dozen occasions now and has always done a fantastic job. She is a true professional, and I feel completely confident leaving my dog in her hands. I would recommend her to anyone with absolutely no reservations. Thanks Elizabeth!

I asked Elizabeth to spend an hour with my labradoodle puppy Layla mid-day while I am at work during the week. She is fantastic! She takes Layla on a walk and follows my instructions perfectly. I never have to worry while at work because I know my puppy is in good hands. She sends me the sweetest pictures of Layla which is an added bonus. I would definitely recommend Elizabeth to take excellent care of your pets :)

Great service! Very reliable and sweet to the pups!
I've already booked with Elizabeth twice and she's always done an amazing job. She's extremely reliable and professional and has been able to accommodate requests even with short notice. She sent pictures with each visit, which made me confident that my dog was in good hands. She's now my go-to person to pet sitting in Houston, and I feel completely comfortable leaving my dog with her. I can't recommend highly enough!

Wow. My husband and I have used various dog sitters in the past and have felt okay with them, but Elizabeth went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable leaving Tucker and Bear while we went on a week-long trip. Elizabeth made house visits to watch Tucker and Bear. We have boarded them in the past using DogVacay but this time preferred to keep them in their own home rather than someone else's with other dogs while we were away. I was a little bit nervous at first - giving someone else a key to my house - but everything turned out wonderfully. Elizabeth sent many pictures daily and even sent text messages to update us on the dogs and see how our trip was going. I never worried about Tucker or Bear with Elizabeth and in their pictures it really looked like they were having a good time. We will definitely be using her in the future! Thanks, Elizabeth!!!

Elizabeth was absolutely wonderful with our pup! We needed someone last minute as we were in from out of town visiting friends for the night, and Elizabeth made us feel so comfortable from the get go (especially in light of the fact that we had never left our puppy alone with anyone before!) She sat with him for over 6 hours, and was also super flexible when we were running late coming back home. She texted us pics of our pup throughout the night and it was clear that she gave him great attention and care :)

Our only regret is that Elizabeth doesn't live in Dallas so that she can watch our dog more often! We will definitely use her again the next time we visit Houston -- you can trust that your pet is in great care with her!

Elizabeth was amazing! Our pup Kayla absolutely loved her! She is sweet, responsible and reliable.
Our dog is a bit of a nervous dog and she warmed up to her very nicely! She took Kayla on long walks, brushed her and gave her a lot of love. She handled Kayla and everything while we were on vacation extremely well. We are very happy with Elizabeth and will definitively ask her to take care of Kayla on a regular basis.

Elizabeth was wonderful! Because of her background in nursing and with caring for animals, we knew she would be a great match for pet sitting our animal babies! She sent photos daily, so any of our worries were quickly calmed. When we returned home, our cat and dog were very happy and very clearly well-cared for. Elizabeth followed our instructions perfectly and we'll definitely use her again for pet sitting.
