About Elizabeth

Which would your dog(s) prefer? Overnight care in my home or overnight dog-sitting and house-sitting in your home?

My one-bedroom apartment, behind an historic bungalow in the Heights, has a shady fenced yard and is in a dog-friendly neighborhood.

Two walks a day is the routine for my dogs and me, plus several outings in the yard. I'm usually home most of the day.

My rescue terriers are easy-going and experienced at being gracious overnight hosts to other dogs. I'll send photos of your pet's vacation experience while you're away.

Ten percent of my dog-care proceeds will be donated to a Houston pet nonprofit.

Elizabeth was amazing with our little guy. She sent several updates while she was watching him. He came back calm and happy.
Elizabeth was great - we will definitely use her in the future!
Elizabeth was a great host. She sent pictures and updates. My dog, Disco, was very happy when I picked up her up and I could tell she really enjoyed her stay with Elizabeth and her two sweet resident doggies, Jack and Sam. I will book again.
If have been leaving our little guy with Ms. Elizabeth for the past 3-4 months and the experience has been great. He runs towards her when we drop him off! She sends us frequent picture updates of his dog vacay and it is so comforting to know that he is in loving hands. We wouldn't want to leave him with anyone else!
Ms. Elizabeth is the best. She, Sam and Jet took in our pup as one of their own immediately. His stay went seamlessly. Not one issue. Thanks Ms. Elizabeth!!
She was great and the service was excellent!! I received updates during the 6 days my dog was with her. Lola felt totally at home! I strongly recommend Elizabeth to take care of our dogs!
Elizabeth did a great job! I can leave without worries when she has Moka. Thank you!
Elizabeth sent us daily texts with pictures and updates on our dog and Sam Houston and Jet Li got along very well with our Travie.
I couldn't be more happy! Elizabeth is not only an animal lover, but true dog professional. She's very loving and warm person and at the same time very knowledgeable about dog behavior. Her two dogs are very nice and well behaved. (I'm a professional dog trainer and behavior consultant, so I could assess that).
Elizabeth sent me frequent updates and photos of my little dog Tiki during her stay. It's like leaving your dog with your best friend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Elizabeth is everything a loving dog owner could want in their pet sitter. She is kind, caring and responsible and really considers the individual needs of the dog. So our little 16 year old "princess" could stay with the pack for walks, she produced a baby stroller, hence christened Lucy's chariot, so she could ride when the walking was too much.
She emails delightful photos so you can see how well your pup is doing, with amusing captions for the humans!
We unreservedly recommend her and Lucy will definitely visit again.
While I was out of the country for 3 weeks, my dog stayed with Elizabeth. I wouldn't have chosen a different person because she truly is the best. She sent pictures and kept me updated almost daily via email about my dog's staying with her. I totally recommend her to anyone who is seeking a trustful and very well qualified person to leave their dogs with!
This is the second time I have had Elizabeth watch Jada and she did a great job again, she kept me updated with Jada's activities while we were gone and was flexible with our travel arrangements. Thanks Elizabeth!
Always delivers great service!
Very reliable and very flexible
Elizabeth is a wonderful host. She was fast in responding. Scheduling the meet and greet, drop-off and pick-up was quick and easy. I received a picture update from her everyday. Her two dogs were very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely use her again.
Elizabeth was awesome. She was really quick to respond and sent pics of Sally while I was away.
This is the first pet-vacay for our 6-month old, Jinx, and Elizabeth was great- she has been very kind and easygoing with my schedule and Jinx seems content when I pick her up. We look forward to more visits.
Elizabeth is an excellent person to leave your dog with. She is great about sending texts and pictures to let you know your dog is doing well, and it is obvious that she genuinely cares for our dog. When we leave our dog Sam with Elizabeth, we know he is in great hands.
I felt very safe to give Moka to Elizabeth. She did a wonderful job!
This was the first time that my family tried DogVacay and it was even better than advertised from beginning-to-end. Elizabeth was a fantastic host. She promptly responded to all of our questions and was incredibly flexible with scheduling. We have found a new home away from home for Ellie!
Another great experience for my dog!
Elizabeth was prompt in responding, accomodating regarding drop off and pick up times and I think my little dog was well cared for.
Elizabeth was very easy to work with. She was responsive and accommodated our last minute booking. While we were away she updated us via text with photos of our dog enjoying his stay.

We were very pleased with her service and will be using her again for our upcoming trip.
Elizabeth was great! We need something fairly last minute and since we were new to town we were starting from scratch trying to find a pet sitter. She was able to set up a meet and greet within a couple of days and our dog Jada had a great time with her for her Dog Vacay! She had plenty of walks and companion time during her stay.
Elizabeth was fantastic to work with - very responsive in setting everything up, and she took great care of Buddy while I was away on a weekend trip. I received several picture text updates to let me know Buddy was doing well and enjoying himself. Will definitely use her again - highly recommended!!!
Happy dog=great host!
Elizabeth was great with my little Shih Tzu. She was so nice and friendly and let me come for a meet and greet a few days before. She sent me a photo update of my little guy everyday. I'll be using her again the next time I go on a trip for sure!
Elizabeth was great and we did not have to worry at all about Kyoa while we were gone. She worked around our not so perfect flight times and sent us updates every day. I would defnitely suggest leaving your dog in her care.
Elizabeth did a great job with our rescued dog, Nuba. She took good care of her and Nuba was so happy with her.
Elizabeth sent us photos every day and we enjoyed to have news.
We found Nuba in the street two months ago and she was very shy. Elizabeth was very involved in Nuba's happiness and when we came back, Nuba was healthy and so beautiful !!!

Thank you to Elizabeth for her kindness and her love for Nuba.
Now, we know someone we can trust to foster our dogs.

Marc and Sandie,
the Frenchies...
We left Chompers with Elizabeth for a weekend. She was very prompt in her responses to emails and text messages. Chompers returned to us happy and tired, which tells me that she had a good time. Elizabeth even let Chompers spend the night snuggled in her bed... so much better than making the dog stay in a crate or at an impersonal kennel!
Extremely kind and well prepared to work with pets! My dog loved it staying at her house so much, that she didn't want to go back home with me!;-)) I strongly recommend Elizabeth to everyone who is looking for a trustworthy and capable person to leave their pets with!
Very attentive! I didn't worry about my dog at all, I would recommend her to anybody.
