About Lisa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
New for 2016 last day of stay only $15!! - We are now offering a $15 daycare rate on the last day of your booking with a 3 or more day stay (not valid on holidays).

We're also offering daily discounts for late drop offs and early pick ups. Let us know your plans and we'll send you a custom quote today!

Our family will love your pet like one of our own. Click here to look at our album of guests, our home and our yard.

We have over 30 yrs of experience caring for pets. Currently, we care for several dogs and cats including many in our own neighborhood and can give you several recent references.

We are Lisa, Paul, John-Paul and Cameron. Our family's first dogs were Golden Retrievers Pete and General. We also had Little Man, our cat who lived 18 yrs. We now have had Sunshine, a golden retriever for about 6 yrs and we also have Peanut for about 2 yrs. Our pet's are fixed and get along with other pets very well. Little Man, Sunshine and Peanut were all rescued off the streets directly by us.

We have reliable transportation and in the event of an emergency we have identified the closest vets and 24/7 animal hospitals in our area. We have also earned our Red Cross badges for Pet CPR and First Aid. We are also very comfortable administering oral and injected medicines. We have done this many times for our own pets and the pets of others.


Checkups and Dog Walking:
--------------------------------------
The charge $20. per visit or $45 for 3 visits in one day. We will come to your home and stay up to an hour to give your pets love, food, water and exercise. If you have a cat, I can also clean your cat litter. If you have a bird, hamster or other caged animal, I can clean their cage. While I am there, I can also bring in your mail or water your plants.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH OUR CALENDAR MAY SHOW BOOKED, THIS IS FOR BOARDING IN OUR HOME ONLY. WE ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO DO CHECKUPS AND DOG WALKING.

Love and Attention - We will show your dog attention throughout the day as we're home most of the time. We will also walk your dog each morning and each evening. At the end of our block is the Terry Hershey trail which we also frequently use. We have a large fenced backyard with plenty of grassy area and trees. We also play fetch in the backyard. Although the dogs go out several times a day it’s only for 30 min or less. We have a patio that the dogs like to use for sunning.

Living and Sleeping Arrangements - Your dog will sleep inside on his/her bed. We also have room for a kennel/crate if that is your preference. Please also let me know about their favorite toy, feeding and walking schedule or other special needs your pet might have. Your pet will stay inside with us so it's very important that he/she is potty trained. We are only accepting family friendly dogs that do not have a history of biting people or other animals. We do not host dogs that are not spayed or neutered.


What vaccinations does my dog need?
-------------------------------------------
The vaccinations below are required for your dog before the meet and greet. If you do not routinely vaccinate your dog, blood measurements known as "titers" and which show antibody levels, are also accepted where noted below.

- Distemper (CDV) - within 5 yrs and no sooner than 6 months from check in (part of the DHPP or DAPP shot). Titers accepted.

- Hepatitis (Adenovirus) - within 4 yrs and no sooner than 14 days from check in (part of the DHPP or DAPP shot). Titers accepted.

- Rabies - within 3 yrs and no sooner than 14 days from check in. This is required for all guest pets. Titers NOT accepted.

- Bordetella - Although your pup may have received a shot for this within the last year, we require them to receive a nasal booster within 6 months and no sooner than 14 days from check in. This is to prevent your pup from being contagious to others immediately after inoculation. This is required for all guest pets. Titers NOT accepted.

PLEASE BRING PROOF OF VACCINATIONS AND/OR TITERS TO THE MEET AND GREET APPOINTMENT.

FOR YOUR PETS SAFETY, WE REQUIRE YOUR PET TO HAVE A COLLAR WITH AN ID TAG AND CURRENT RABIES TAG.

JP,
It was nice to meet this family before Penny actually stayed with them.
There's plenty of room in the house and back yard for several dogs to have a nice vacay.
JP did a great job of communicating with me both before and during Penny's stay.
I would recommend JP and I will use his service in the future for Penny.
