About Alisha

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I'm a Holistic Lifestyle Educator and Events Coordinator available to care for your well-behaved pup or cat while you're away! Please check my calendar for availability before requesting a meet-n-greet. A meet-n-greet is mandatory before any reservation requests will be accepted.

***Please include the answers to all of the questions at the bottom of my profile along with your inquiry/meet-n-greet request.

::About Me & My Dog::

I'm a 28 year old, life-long dog lover & owner who recently graduated with a Masters in Holistic Health Education. I work from home so I'm available to hang out and take care of your pup all day, aside from leaving for an hour or two to go to yoga and swim laps.

::What to Expect::

Coming from a holistic worldview, I understand your pet has needs that include physical, emotional, social, and environmental. I'm able to take your dog on 1-2 walks each day, follow a feeding schedule, and provide natural, healthy dog treats. Some dogs can experience various levels of anxiety while away from their owners and their home so their emotional needs can be attended to with extra love and attention - however your dog enjoys being comforted! They will have the opportunity to socialize with my fun-loving pup, Bama Bear to keep them company while you're away. If your dog has moderate to severe separation anxiety, this situation most likely won't be a good fit.

::Interested in Booking?::

Thank you for your interest in booking your dog's vacay with me! Please include the following information in your message/Meet n Greet request:

Does you dog have any separation anxiety? If so, what does it look like and what can provide them comfort? Would you rate their separation anxiety as low, moderate, or severe?

Does your dog dart off sometimes or get scared easily?

Does your dog get along well with other dogs?

Has your dog been watched by someone they don't know before?

Alisha took great care of our pup and was very flexible and accommodating. We loved her energy.
Alisha is very conscientious and kind. Sent us a pic of our dog while we were away and gave us updates. I highly recommend her and would use her services again.
Alisha and Bama are amazing! Alisha has a very calming demeanor and is extremely caring. I really appreciate the fact that she insists on a meet-and-greet prior to agreeing to board any dog. It gave Baz and Bama (who has the energy of a puppy and is super sweet) a chance to get to know one another and it gave me more reassurance that Alisha's home was the place for Baz. The fact that Alisha works from home is a great bonus, too.
Throughout the weekend, Alisha shared photos of Baz (who made himself very comfortable in her house) and was great at communication. When we ended up needing to pick up Baz earlier than expected, Alisha was really flexible.
And there is no better review for Alisha and Bama than the fact that Baz seemed right at home when I went to pick him up. It feels great to know that the next time I'm out of town, I have a loving place with loving friends to take care of Baz. We will definitely be back!

My dog Chutney has been with about 5 other sitters through DogVacay, and Alisha has definitely been the best. My dog is shy and has a hard time adjusting to new environments, and I think having Bama (Alisha's dog) around helped her because she loves playing with other dogs (more than people). Alisha was very accommodating and easy going, which I really appreciated while having a million things to worry about preparing for my trip. She also sent me really cute picture updates of Chutney and text updates. She has a good sized fenced backyard for her to play in on a very convenient and nice street. Thanks again, Alisha! I will definitely be requesting again soon.

Alicia is, without a second thought, a gift to my family. I needed to find accommodations for 2 WEEKS at the last minute before leaving on a trip out of the country. Alicia was there for me- again. Thank you!
Another great experience with Alisha! This time Briscoe visited for a daylong playdate. He was happy and tired when we picked him up. Alisha was welcoming and flexible. I highly recommend her services. Thanks, Alisha and Bama!
Alisha's home is just as much a vacation for my Norma Jean as Mexico was for me. My pup had a blast hanging out with Alisha's own dog, and her home is calm while her backyard is obviously for some serious play time. I will DEFINITELY be calling Alisha for my next weekend trip! Thanks a million times!

These two have been amazing hosts and share pics and everything.
Alisha was a fantastic host to our 5-month-old puppy, Briscoe. It was our first time leaving him away from home, and she made us feel very comfortable! Briscoe had a fantastic time playing with Bama at Alisha's, and she took great care of him. He was happy and relaxed when we picked him up, and she was very flexible and helpful. Alisha, can't thank you enough! Hope to visit again next time we need a place for Briscoe to stay.

Alisha was super flexible and quick to respond to my last-minute request. She took great care of my pup. He enjoyed running around her backyard with her fabulous dog.
Alisha was great! She has a huge backyard and Sam loves his new friend, Bama! She sent me really cute pictures of the pups too! I will definitely use Alisha again :)
Brittany was awesome! Oscar seems to have had a great time has a new buddy in Bama. I'll definitely bring him back again. Thanks!
Alisha and Bama are amazing!! Nina came back home very happy :) Thank you!
Nice for Nacho and Kobe to have a second home! And, they send great pics.
Great host! She took great care of our dog, sent us a lt of pictures of him playing and hiking and it was clear that our dog was very happy time with her. We will repeat!
Alisha was awesome and very patient with my German Shepherd puppy Leo, as was Bama who was a great playmate for Leo. All in all an excellent first experience - will definitely go again.
Alisha was great to work with. She was very promo in responding to emails, phone calls, and online postings. Russell enjoyed his time with her and Bama.
Little Isabella, an eight pound puppy, met a new friend, Boma, maybe 70 pounds, and they hung out for half a day. Alisha was very accommodating, allowing a last-minute reservation. She kindly sent photos of the two dogs on their walk. The point of the vacay was to tire out Izzy and that goal was happily met!

And, yet again! Thank you for taking such good care of the boys. Having them socialize with your dog has really helped them. :)
