About Lisa and Andy

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a large securely fenced yard. Clean and comfortable dog beds, friendly residents, and 2 able, mature humans in charge 24/7.

At night, your pet can choose to sleep on a comfy dog bed or couch among any new friends, or if they prefer alone time, we can accommodate that as well. Some guests even like to sleep in our bed (if there is room)!

We like to get out and run around. It helps us to better enjoy relaxing when we have to go back indoors. When we have visitors who are bolters, we take the pack to one of two nearby fenced dog parks. When we have visitors who stick to the pack, we like to go to the beach or take a hike at Point Isabel.

We offer care, companionship and mellow walks for those old friends who are less active, too.

We also love special needs pets! Ask us about our services and any extra attention your pet may need.

We take all sizes and breeds.Talk to us about anything that we can do to make your pet's stay happy and fun!

We have lots of personal experience (lifetime dog owners), and professional experience (night charge person at PET CAMP, and professional dog walking). We also board fosters for rescues, and donate regularly to rescue organizations. We support spay/neuter programs. FIX YOUR PET!

Super awesome people. My old blind dog had a great time and were very accommodating when I was unable to get back in town at the agreed upon pickup time. I will definitely have Brando stay there again.
I've been meaning to post a review for Lisa and Andy for a long time. Andy and Lisa have been taking care of my dog Bodhi for as long as I've had Bodhi. He started boarding with them soon after he came home from the animal rescue and they've been a big part of his socialization and growing up. I can't say enough wonderful things about them. Bodhi loves going to visit and hang out with their pack. As soon as he sees me take out his dog food container for a visit, he starts bouncing around the house, so excited about the visit. They are like his second family. As testimony to how much he loves them, we ran into Andy with his pack of dogs (the little guys!) at Pt Isabel the other day and Bodhi immediately ran over to Andy, jumped all over him and wanted to join him for the walk. Later near the parking lot Bodhi just ran right up to him again. In fact, I had hard time convincing him to come home with me! My slightly bruised dog-mamma-ego aside, I love that Bodhi is so happy at Lisa and Andy's house and that they are so caring with their dogs. I travel a lot for work and its a huge sense of security to know that my little guy is being taken care of and is having fun. Thank you so much!

I love getting mini updates and feel so happy and trusting of their service.
Great as always!
Great as always!
This is my dog's third stay with Lisa and Andy and right before we were due to leave on a trip abroad, our little guy hurt his back and was put on complicated pill regime and a completely restricted exercise schedule. They were very accommodating to his restrictions and I was so happy that he was being well taken care of while I was away!

It just doesn't get any better. Lisa and Andy are amazing people with huge hearts. We never think twice when it comes to leaving our pup with them.
Suki loves to stay at Lisa and Andy's! Whenever we go out of town, we know she'll be in good hands, surrounded by other canine buds.
Lisa and Andy are great! Izzy always has a fantastic time when she goes to her "doggie hotel" and comes home exhausted from all the play.
As always Lisa and Andi were great! They are so accommodating and loving to our dog who has a challenging medical issue. Don't know what we would do without them!
I have a sweet Golden Retriever, Skye who loves to sleep on the bed. Lisa and Andy welcomed her like she was their own. When we arrived, I dreaded the parting but Skye walked in like she lived there and didn't look back! She had hurt her front leg 2 days before and they happily took the steroids and my vague instructions and promised to watch her. I should add that Skye and I had just cared for my Mom until her death so I was scattered but they were kind and reassuring. Dogs in their care are treated like their own! I Highly recomend them!!

Our dogs are rascals (18 mo. old puppies) , we had them in daycare to prepare them for their vacation stay. Lisa has done a very good job and worked with a us to get them ready for a month stay
lisa took wonderful care of shanti. she clearly has a lot of experience caring for dogs and seems to be a true dog lover. she sent frequent picture updates. even though shanti is very timid with people, she came back from her stay happy and healthy!
Ginger has stayed with Lisa and Andy many times, for short stays and for longer stays. The longest was 3 weeks. Each and every time she has come home a happy dog! Lisa and Andy pay attention to how your dog is doing and will give more attention, if needed and they always make sure your dog has the best possible time. Lots of outings to the park and lots of love.

Our dog Izzy always seems happy and loved at Lisa and Andy's house!
Our dog, Zara, gets very excited when we get to Lisa and Andy's house. She loves being with them and I can tell how much they entertain her because she is so tired when I pick her up. Lisa also sends us photos while we are away and keeps us updated.
Lisa and Andy are nothing but the best! Love see daily updates and look at them having always a blast! When I picked them up they are so relax happy and calm! Lisa/Andy you are amazing! Thank you for always be there for my dogs :) see you soon!
Norman had another wonderful time at Lisa and Andy's. Always thoughtful and concerned about all that is going on with my Norman. Thanks again Barbara
Lisa and Andy are simply the best.
Mollie and Murphy came home from their first overnights happy and exhausted. Lisa and Andy were great about sending pictures and our furkids looked like they were having a blast. Looking forward to having them stay again.
Outstanding!!!
Like always, my dogs came back happy and tired. I loved receiving some photos during their stay. I'm really glad we found Lisa and Andy! Thank you guys!
They had a great time. Amazing photo updates. 100% recommended.
Great as usual!
Andy and Lisa were great communicators. And, our pup came home happy and relaxed. She had a great time. Will use again, highly recommend. Also enjoyed the photos on FB!
Another great stay! Lungo seems to have had a blast, he was there for 2 weeks and was relaxed and happy when we picked him up.
Lisa and Andy are the best -- when we pick up Bix, he is happy to see us, but also sad to leave them! And he is always exhausted, which is a nice treat for us.
Lisa and Andy were terrific. They communicated well, were flexible, and our dogs were well cared for.
Polenta had aa great time. Thanks a lot.
Always the best! Prim comes back from daycare so happy and exhausted. We trust Lisa & Andy completely - and always enjoy seeing the photos of Prim running and playing with the other dogs. Thanks for taking care of her so well!
My dogs came back happy but most of all, tired! I really appreciated the photos update and the easy communication. I will definitely call them back for another vacation.
I just had my 5 month old Daniff puppy staying at Lisa and Andys for the last 5 days. I have to say that they are awesome Dog sitters. They sent pictures to keep me up to date on Normans activities. Loved them!! I was worried to find a good place that I can be assured Norman would be well taken care of. And I did! Lisa and Andy are top notch and experienced at handling dogs. Will definitely use them again!!
Thank You......Barbara and Norman

The only peeps I trust to take care of our Elsa while we are out of town. Elsa has fun and I don't have to worry (too much) about how she's doing while we are away. Lots of pics sent via email and posted on their FB page. Love scrolling through the pics of Elsa and all the other doggies on playcation with her. Thank you Lisa! You are AMAZING with all those pups. Especially with Elsa

Prim loves staying with Lisa and Andy! They always take such good care of her, we wonder if she wants to come home with us. :) Lots of fun activity and super cute photo updates, too.
Lisa is amazing. As always, Lungo had a blast staying with her.
My dog had a great time at Lisa's doggie retreat. Lisa kept me updated with pictures and notes, so I knew my boy was well cared for. And he looks great! Lots of exercise and relaxing in the sun. We'll be back next time we're out of town.
Pawsome, for sure. From the first conversation, I knew my dogs would be in the hands of a pro! They were well cared for, never bored and well exercised. I had to bribe one of them to leave...

Lisa A provides well for boarding with lots of comfy lounging possibilities, a good yard in which to sniff and chill, fun outings and good company. I was especially pleased not just with the convenience of the location but also with the ideal climate near the water (for my "delicately" constituted SF pups!).

Prudence, my mother's 17 year-old Shih Tzu stayed with Lisa for four days over the Memorial Day holiday. I was nervous because she is so old and mostly blind and deaf. Though not at all aggressive with other dogs, she is not particularly social either. She had a fine time and came back happy and slightly more energetic than she had been of late. I appreciated Lisa's willingness to work with her needs as a senior dog. also appreciated hearing soon after we left her that she was doing fine.

Today was a trial daycare, and it went well!
Lisa and Andy are absolutely awesome!!! Ino loves his stays with them and their posse. He comes home from an overnight stay and conks out for the next two days because he'd probably been playing nonstop. I particularly love the pros of a doggy daycare vibe, where pooches can roam free both indoors and outdoors (they've got a good-sized yard) as well as day trips to Albany bulb, without the cons of overwhelmed staff due to too many dogs, which is often the case at the commercial doggy daycare centers that I've dealt with. I highly recommend them (especially if you don't mind being sent professional quality photos of your dog having the time of his life!)

Awesome as usual - he comes back happy and tired and well taken care of!
My dogs Loooooove Lisa and Andy!!
My dog loves coming to Lisa's place! He has so much fun and he gets plenty of love, so I don't have to feel guilty about leaving my little man behind when I go out of town.
We were initially very nervous about leaving our Bichon Frise puppy, Bonaparte, with people we didn't know. We rescued him from Berkeley Humane Society and they knew very little about him -- he was found running around the hills in Oakland and that was literally the extent of the shelter's knowledge about him. He is a hyperactive little guy, very friendly but has separation anxiety. Once I met Lisa I immediately felt reassured and comfortable with placing Bonaparte in her care. She was relaxed, listened attentively to our concerns and I felt intuitively her love for animals. When we picked him up, he seemed happy and I had the sense that he had enjoyed his vacation day with Lisa and her partner Andy.
We will definitely plan another stay for Bonaparte with Lisa and Andy in the near future.
Unreservedly giving a 5-star rating.
Thanks for helping us out. We think you were awesome and hope you enjoyed our dog.
Also: loved the photos that were sent to us of Bonaparte!

Lisa boarded our dog for 4 nights. He is shy with new people and new dogs. But he warmed up to everyone and became one of the gang with Lisa's warmth and support. Such a relief! I like that the dogs get to go out and run around a lot and have fun at the park. It's great to know that our dog gets very good and thoughtful care with Lisa. Highly recommended!

Lisa is amazing. I left my little dachshund with her for 10 days. He is a very spoiled dog and I can see he had an amazing time with Lisa.
Lisa sent me pictures and updates, which is very reassuring when you leave your baby for serveral days. After 10 days it seems she knew Lungo almost better than me!
I´m defenitely coming back to her when I need dog boarding again.

Elsa had a great time again! We always feel comfortable when we have to leave Elsa in their care. She is loved and has so much fun. Photo updates are great - we love seeing her playing and having a great time!
This was my first DogVacay and Cedar had a ball! I needed a brief stay for Cedar while I did a volunteer service and Cedar, a high-energy Border Collie pup, cannot stay alone the hours I had to be gone. Lisa and Andy were friendly and easy-going and flexible and very very upbeat. Cedar had a fun stay with ball-tossing, bone chewing, and lots of smaller pups she could chase around. She was thoroughly entertained. Lisa's house is super easy to find and convenient, and it is obvious she is a big-time dog lover. She came out cradling her little rescue pup found with two broken legs! What a good-hearted woman! I definitely hope to use Lisa again.

Woofy enjoyed his stay with Lisa. By going for a walk with the other dogs he also learned to swim. Great place but the larger dogs are sometimes a bit overwhelming for Woofy.
Louis loved his stay with Lisa and Andy. I couldn't ask for more!
Lisa and East Bay Packleader is the best, Bix always comes home exhausted and happy.
Lisa was very communicative, available and accommodating. Great service.
Prim loves going for DogVacay more than we like going on our own vacation! We can't even drive by their place if we're heading somewhere else - she gets upset we're not dropping her off for an "Awesome Day".

Always the best care, with play dates scheduled with her favorite friends, and photos to show us how much fun she is having!
Read More...
Always the best care! Prim gets super excited to join her friends on adventures and comes back pleasantly exhausted.
This was our first time leaving our dogson for a whole week, so we were a bit worried. Being able to follow on Facebook and Instagram did a lot to ease those tensions. We could see how much fun he was having every day. When we picked him up up, it was like we never even left (besides him being a lot more tired from all the fun). We will definitely be bringing him back to stay for the next trip!

great
Another great stay :)
Always fabulous! They take such good care of her and she gets to play all day with her favorite dogs. Just the best!
Lisa and Andi were great hosts. Briscoe came home tired and happy. They were confident and in control and we had a stress-free weekend away with them watching our pup. Highly recommend their services! Thanks, Lisa and Andi. Briscoe will be back!
Deacon had a great time with Lisa and Andi. He came home from his daycare stay happy & tired!
We just picked our pug up after being in Hawaii for a week, and we think he had a better vacation with Lisa and Andi than we did on the Big Island (and that's saying something)! We have no worries at all when we drop him off with them, and we know he's being super well cared for.

We LOVE 'Camp Lisa & Andy'!
Have been bringing our beloved pup to their welcoming loving house for over a year. They were a godsend when we were desperate for safe and reliable boarding. Our dog is always happy and healthy when we pick her up- and she practically jumps out of the car to get there when we drop her off.
They reply quickly to any 'check-in' texts and are always send photos and updates.
They never leave the dogs home alone which is incredible. We have never had a problem and always feel great relief knowing our dog is in safe and capable hands while we are away.

Lisa and Andi are the best! Our dog LOVES staying with them -- the fun outings and the relaxed atmosphere in their house is great. And we LOVE seeing his photo on their Facebook page. While we're away, we get to see what a great time Bix is having! Thank you.

Elsa is a nervous dog. Lisa was so sweet with her and made sure she was happy and comfortable. With updates and sharing Elsa's day with us at pick up, it really put our minds at ease and made us very happy we found great pet sitters.
Andi and Lisa are the best! Our dog Bix has a wonderful time when he stays there -- he comes home exhausted and happy! And it is fun to see his picture on their Facebook page.
We left our 1 year old Husky with Lisa and Andi when we went on vacation. I can't tell you how nice it was to see our sweet boy in pictures at Point Isabel each and every day. This was our second time with Lisa and Andi, and our boy couldn't wait to get out of the car to go on his "vacation." Lisa and Andi give your dog a comfortable and fun doggy vacation.

Outstanding care!
Perfect!
Lisa and ansi are great. Louis had a ggggrreat time. lots of walks and love. i loved the fact that they post pictures on their Facebook page, so I could see what they were up to while I was gone. I am a happy repeat customer!
Lisa & Andi are great! Responsive and always uploading photos. Abby gets excited every time we pull up to their house so I know she's having a blast.
Maddy was really nervous and gave Andi and Lisa a pretty hard time. I was impressed with how far out of their way they went to make her comfortable. I highly recommend them. I would definitely recommend a meet and greet first if possible in case the wonderful pack of dogs they care for is overwhelming for your pup as it was for Maddy. But you can have lots of confidence that no matter how your furchild I'd doing, they are in they best of hands.

We really liked the way Lisa and Andi kept our dog. This was the first time our dog had been away from us, and she had a great time. She was not traumatized at all. The communication while we were away was great. I wasn't worried at all.
As always Lisa and Andi were awesome. Our pup has been with them many times and he always comes home relaxed and happy. We love the photos and the fact that Lisa is always so flexible. 5 stars!
Our dog had the best time! She visited the off-leash park regularly and had a blast. Highly recommended.
Our dog Henry recently stayed with Lisa and Andi for a long two and a half weeks while we were traveling. We felt completely confident that he was in great hands. Lisa and Andi kept us posted with copious pictures online and it was clear he was having a great time. Thank you, Lisa and Andi!!

Just for the day-- he come home tired and happy.
It was the first time for Woofy to stay at Lisa's and he loved it. They went out for multiple walks and Lisa posted quite a few pictures on their FB page. She also left us a note during our travels and this gave us a very good feeling and peace of mind. I'm absolutely sure that Woofy wants to go back during future travels.

Lisa and Andi are always incredibly flexible for my needs and super professional in their care for my dog. Even after several months, they still remember my dog and his needs. Each day I'm out of town, I love looking online to see pictures of all the adventures my dog is having with Lisa and Andi. Remembering a previous concern of mine about fleas, they made special effort to remind me to treat my dog before his vacay. By the time I pick him up, he is happy, healthy, and very very tired. Perfect!
Read More...
Our dog did very well staying with Lisa and Andi. They have a good place for them to play and they welcome them right in to the house which is great for house dogs like mine who just aren't used to kennel life and are treated like one of the family. I am looking forward to having my boy stay with Lisa and Andi in the future.

Farofa had another fun visit with Lisa! She must have played a lot because she was super tired today after we picked her up. Thanks, Lisa!
Always the best care for Prim! Attention and love, just like she was one of their own!
Prim loves spending time with Lisa & Andi! Fabulous runs with the pack and playtime. She always comes back exhausted.
Lisa & Andi always provide a loving, fun environment for Prim. She loves going, and always comes back happy and exhausted.
This was Farofa's first time being boarded, and boy were we nervous! Lisa responded to my txt messages throughout her stay, letting me know how she was doing. I was happy to know that she was allowed to sleep in the same bed as her host, as we feared she might not do well in a strange house without us there to calm her (she is always agitated when we stay at friends' houses). It seems she is starting to form a bond with Lisa, which is great to know because we want to be able to leave her with someone she is comfortable with, and it takes her a good long while to get to know new people (apparently mini schnauzers are notoriously aloof - who knew?). She seemed to get plenty of exercise because she collapsed into her bed for a hearty nap of ~6 hrs when we got home. Thanks for taking good care of our girl, Lisa and Andi!

This was our girl's second time staying with Lisa and Andi, and she seemed to have a better time as she is beginning to warm up to her hosts. Lisa told us she was a bit more social on this visit, so we are pleased with her progress and are very thankful to have found Lisa and Andi.

Lisa & Andi took such fabulous care of Prim during a last minute family emergency. Not only did they take care of her, they were generous and compassionate to her humans as well. Just the absolute best!
This review is a little overdue, but I have to give props to Lisa and Andi. My dogs had a wonderful time here. They had many other dog friends to play with, and were well exercised. I highly recommend Lisa and Andi to other dog parents.
Prim loves her days with Lisa & Andi! They help her bond with new doggy friends and tire her out with fun days hiking.
Thank you Lisa and Andi for making our pup's first night away from home a positive and fun experience. She slept for the whole next day! Thank you also for being so flexible and nice.
Pawsome! My guy loves going there and they are just wonderful with all the dogs there big or small and their unconditional love. I cant imagine taking my little one anywhere else. Thank you Lisa and Andi!
I don't think there's enough I can say about the care Lisa and Andi give to their charges. They took care of my beautiful Emma, up to the time she passed. Very compassionate and willing to go above and beyond to help me care for her. Now, there's a new pup in the family and they have been wonderful in their advice, help and care for Jonas. Again, going above and beyond. He absolutely loves them. You can tell by how much he wiggles when he sees them. :-) They've been instrumental in helping me raise a happy, healthy dog.

Our mini schnauzer had never stayed with a "stranger" before, so we were a bit nervous leaving her with anyone, but Lisa and Andi really set our minds at ease during our meet-n-greet. They took their time to introduce her to each of their dog guests one at a time and asked a lot about her behaviors, so we felt confident when we dropped her off for her first daycare experience. Lisa gave us an honest report of how our girl did during her stay; she takes awhile to get used to new people and experiences, so we figured her first time might be a bit rough, and we were glad Lisa didn't sugarcoat it, saying "she had a blast" or anything like that. We are excited to bring her back for more daycare and eventual boarding over the Christmas. We feel that she is in good hands with Lisa and Andi and know that she'll have even more fun as she gets used to the idea of being away from us and with a different pack.

I have no doubt my havanese little guy is in good hands not only by the environment of this doggy care home but also the attitude and caring Lisa has shown. My dog has a mellow style and he does very well at this home and Lisa gives him plenty of love I am sure.

Maia has been coming to Lisa and Andi's for doggie daycare and overnight stays off and on since June and we are so happy to have found them! We really appreciate the care, attention and love they give to the dogs as well as the updates and knowledge they share with their owners. It's comforting to find a place where you can leave your dog and not worry about them because you know that they are being taken well care of and having a great time. Maia always comes home happy and super tired from her adventures with Lisa, Andi and the rest of the pack. Thank you, Lisa and Andi!

Lisa and Andi are "the real deal." They CARE about their dogs. My little guy Louie was very nervous when he arrived for an extended stay, and Lisa, recognizing this, let him accompany her on her daily chores. She knew that Lou needed to bond with her before he could settle in. She did the right thing! She made him feel "at home" and this made all the difference. These are wonderful women who are not simply running a doggie daycare service; they put their hearts in their work!

My 2 dogs had a great weekend for their 1st experience being boarded! They enjoyed free roam in the house and a nice big backyard to play in...even got a trip down to the water! Even my shy girl seemed happy and even more outgoing than usual when I picked them up! Lisa & Andi definitely have "dog sense" about them, great intuition in relating to my "kid"s. Highly recommend them!

Fantastic once again! Ruby loves to stay with Lisa and Andi.
Lisa and Andi were amazing hosts for our dog! They went out of their way to accomodate him, and they truly love the dogs they take care of. We got great photos of him on Facebook during his stay, and he came home tired and happy. I would recommend them 100%!

Zara loves her visits with Lisa and Andi. They take great care of her and always make her feel at home. Lisa always sends us pictures and updates us on Zara during her stay at there house. Zara especially loves the walks she goes on with Lisa and Andi. Lisa and Andi have been very flexible with times and dates which has also been a big help to us. I would recommend them to others looking for a place for their dog to stay.

Let me say right off, the only reason I'm giving 5 stars is because I can't give twenty.

It's hard to overstate my satisfaction! I needed an emergency sitter while I moved out of a house where we had just discovered the live-in landlord was physically abusing my 4-year old puppy April. Lisa responded instantly, and went above and beyond to make it work for my extremely hectic and fluid schedule. When we arrived, Lisa and Andi greeted us with smiles, and it was immediately clear that their love for dogs is genuine and boundless.

What I wasn't expecting was their impressive knowledge of dog psychology! Within just the 20-minute introduction period, where they brought out the other dogs to meet April one at a time, we had discovered several very useful things about her personality.

Another big plus were the facebook photos. There are about 15 pics uploaded every day, and they never failed to make me smile and ease the guilt for not being with her.

Yet another great overnight adventure for our pup, Chaco. He loves going to Lisa and Andi's and always comes home relaxed and worn out from his time there. He said he can't wait to go back!
Lisa was great! Andi was away so I did not have the opportunity to meet her but I am sure she would have been great too had she been there! Next time :) The booking was a very last minute and Lisa was so accommodating and reassuring. My little guy is not very dog friendly having not been really socialised in his life but Lisa made sure he was comfortable and allowed him to be himself. He did very well fending for himself and I know that Lisa gave him all the love and care he needed and then some! Loved the hikes too! She certainly knows and understands dogs. Thank you thank you thank you! He will certainly go back.

This was our dog, Chaco's second time staying with Lisa and Andi. I can't say enough great things about them. Their place is homey and very comfy for the pups they care for. They take them out on great adventures and post pictures of all the fun. They are pretty flexible about drop off and pick up time as well.

Lisa and Andi are great! As soon as we went to our meet and greet, I knew this was the place form my dog, Chaco. Their yard is big and secure with lots of space for the dog to play. They take the dogs out on fun adventures and post awesome photos of the daily adventures. You can tell that all the pups they watch and care for are part of "the pack". Definitely will be bringing Chaco back next time the need arises.

Wow! Lisa was fantastic and she made this entire experience flawless. This was my first time using this service and as many "new experiences" go was feeling apprehensive but from the moment I sent her my first message to my pick up of my pups, she was phenominal. She was kind, she was sweet with my wee ones, she was flexible with times, she was concientious of how my pups were feeling/acting in a new place, she updated me with texts and pictures, and my dogs loved their full day with her! Thank you, Lisa!!!!! I would recommend you to ANYone in need of your service and will definitely contact you next time I'm in town for the weekend.

Lisa and Andi were super helpful and understanding in taking care of our dog. We were worried at first about were we would board her (she is not dog friendly) and Lisa and Andi were very helpful. They really understand and love dogs a lot. Our dog looked like she was having lots of fun on their daily photographic updates. I really loved not having to constantly worry about whether she was having a good time or not!

I can't say enough good things about Lisa and Andi. This was Georgia's first time on vacation from me and her home, and it was a long one. I'm not sure she felt that way though. She was surrounded by playful buddies (dog and human), went on long hikes every day, and had a great house and yard to hang out in. I felt so lucky she was with Lisa and Andi. They were very sensitive and intuitive getting to know Georgia's personality and quickly helped her get over her shyness to become part of their pack. Lisa and Andi were also very communicative with me, texting me updates and checking in on health and food stuff. I also got to see daily pictures of Georgia having a blast. They approached Georgia's care with genuine interest in her well-being, openness to her needs, and best of all a wonderful sense of humor. I will be looking for excuses to send Georgia back to the best sleepover camp ever!

Our dog, Zara, had a great time with Lisa and Andi. They kept us up to date by sending pictures every day of Zara playing, going on hikes, etc. They are very knowledgeable and friendly with dogs, and also are very flexible with us. Lisa and Andi gave her lots of attention, which our dog tends to require sometimes. I could tell she loved her time there and would recommend that other dog owners choose Lisa and Andi when looking for a place for their dog to stay.

Lisa and Andi are amazing! We are visiting family from Oregon with our 11 month treeingwalker coonhound Otis. We had last minute all day plans and were frantically trying to find accommodations for Otis the day before. They responded immediately and were able to have us come by that same night to introduce Otis to the rest of the dogs. He is very shy initially and they went out of their way to make sure we, and Otis were all comfortable with all the dogs. Our boy spent the day with the pack and after warming up, had the best time! We got texts and fbook updates from Lisa and Andi throughout the day which made us feel at ease and we got to see what a great time he was having. Thank you so much Lisa and Andi we can't thank you enough for coming through for us in a pinch and for the amazing care you take for all the dogs.

Lisa and Andi were really attentive to the temperament and needs of my dog and she seemed to have had a good time. They were also flexible with drop off and pick up which was convenient for me. No complaints.
Very loving, caring doggie people. Lisa sent text pictures of my dog having fun and when I picked her up she was smiling and clearly Tuckered out from so much fun. Lovely person!
Lisa was just a pleasure to work with. Her flexibility with drop off and pick hours is fantastic. Our pup also seemed to have a lot of fun with a good number of dogs in the big and clean yard.

Lisa even gave our pup a free bath before we picked him up, which is totally unexpected :)

Lisa and Andi were super friendly and were able to meet me prior to bringing my two dogs for an extended stay of 2 weeks for my wedding / honeymoon. They had a fenced in lawn area which was important for me, and have great access to nearby dog parks and beach area for the dogs to run around. We were out of the country, so it was fabulous to get picture updates of our pups every few days and see they were having a lot of fun. Lisa and Andi were excellent in asking questions and understanding our dogs as best as possible before we dropped them off, and I absolutely would recommend to others and plan on using Lisa and Andi again in the future! Thanks for being such great adoptive parents for 2 weeks for our pups!

I am impressed by the professional, kind, knowledgeable way Lisa and Andi handle their business. They are organized yet very flexible, conscientious, and attuned to each dog's particular needs. Their "pack" includes all kinds of doggies: Isabella met little guys, big guys, both shy and very energetic friends. She had a great time and, best of all, came home tired out. I have already made another reservation.

A successful first full day away from "mom." Thanks, Lisa and Andi!
If you are looking for a place where your loved doggy companion will feel like he is at his second home, then Lisa and Andi's vacay is a great option. Lisa was flexible, friendly and professional, and her home and yard are large and extremely dog-friendly. They seem to make the dogs their number one priority, as it should be, and I appreciated that so much. Cielo felt like he was part of the family here, and I plan on having him visit often! Thanks ladies!

They had a great time! And the pictures were great; we could see that they were enjoying themselves and being well taken care of. thank you Lisa and Andi! we can go on vacation knowing we don't have to worry about anything.
This was the first time I'd been away from Coal since his adoption, and I was nervous he'd think I was giving him away. Coal had such a great time during his visit I think he wants to move in with Lisa and Andi and their canine buddies!

Lisa and Andi were great. They wanted to know all about Coal so they would know how to keep him happy, and they kept me happy with photo and email updates so I never had to worry about my boy. I highly recommend them!

Alfred had a great time on his second visit, and we got a lot of great pictures to prove it. Thanks to Lisa and Andi for being such great substitute canine guardians!
We were very happy with boarding our dog Luna at Lisa and Andi's. They took Luna for walks at Pt Isabelle everyday, and posted pictures and updates on FB. Andi called me the last night we were away to let me know that Luna had stomach trouble. She updated me about Luna's conditions throughout the night. She was genuinely concerned about Luna's well being and I felt that Luna was in good hands. They were excellent hosts that put our minds at ease while we were away.

Alfred had a good time with Lisa and the other doggies over the holidays. Lisa posted regular updates and photos, which was really nice so we could feel like we were staying connected to him. We definitely recommend Lisa and Andi's place for social dogs (although they happily made accommodations for Alfred in some of his less-social moments as well)! Thanks for taking good care of Alfred!

Polenta had a great time at Lisa's.
Lisa and Andi were super, from the moment we were first in contact with them. They were courteous and cooperative, and are clearly people who are devoted to dogs. Ahead of time, they conducted an unhurried familarization visit with our dog, Sheldon, and with us, which made all the difference in his making a smooth adaptation to his first stay away from home. We are very grateful for Lisa and Andi's skilled and friendly help, and will certainly go back to them when we need dog-boarding days for Sheldon.

Andi and Lisa provide a true doggy oasis, full of fun and love and good times. My dog is pretty easy going, but when she arrived at Andi and Lisa's, she was instantly at home. I could tell that she'd be happy there. I had no worries about her, and I'm certainly a nervous one when it comes to my girl. But, day after day, I got to see gorgeous photos of her playing, making friends, cuddling with her hosts, and having an amazing time. The photos were so warm, and their comments really showed that they were attentive to who she is. I could tell they really got to know her. They also went out of their way to pick up my dog's medication when she ran out during her stay. I highly recommend Andi and Lisa. Top-notch dog people!

When we went to pick up Ruby it was clear she had a safe, fun, and comfortable time with Andi & Lisa. They were sensitive to her needs and are clearly a dog oriented family. I love all the outdoor space the dogs have access to and their home revolves around their dogs. Ruby will be staying with them again soon!

My pup always comes back happy and well-exercised!
Andi and Lisa took such great care of Emma. She's an older dog with special needs and I usually have her care at home, however, they made it so easy and welcoming for her in their home. They truly put me at ease. She had other dogs to play with and the full-time attention was very good for her. They even took her for her walk in her wheel cart! You could tell by the pictures they posted that she loved it and was very happy there. They were clearly able to work with her special needs. Thank you, Andi and Lisa!

I'm sure Jugo had a great time because he has been sleeping since we got home 4 hours ago :)
This was the first time that I leave Jugo for so long and after meeting Andi and Lisa and their pack I knew Jugo would be safe and having a lot of fun and I am sure if he could talk he would say so. When we went to pick him up I could tell he had a great time and got along fine with everyone and would love to go back. He will definitely go back whenever I need to leave him for a long time. I really appreciate your hard work and understanding, oh and the pictures!!! Thank you very much! I am really happy I found you!

Andi and Lisa are caring people...I was very confident in their ability to take care of Roxie...24hr supervision is hard to come by and was happy to find folks who could provide that level of service.
Andi and Lisa are two wonderful dog mamas who were perfectly attuned to my and my beagle's needs - super fast responses to messages/phone calls, flexible about last minute arrangements, and attentive to feed times/training habits/behavior issues. My dog had the time of his life with their huge dog-friendly yard and daily outdoor excursions. They even posted several pictures on Facebook each day of the dogs enjoying themselves. One note: my dog came back with a lot of itchy flea bites (even though he's on flea meds). Pests are inevitable in a doggy wonderland like this, especially with all the trips to the dog park, so be sure to give your dog the full flea treatment before/after his vacay. Just a heads up, but otherwise this was a great experience. Going out of town and getting my dog such a nice little vacation is quite a luxury for me, but I'd definitely save up and do it again.

Andi and Lisa are great and very easy to work with. Sammie obviously had a great time! Its great to get to see fun photos everyday of your dog being pampered and having fun!
Nala had the most amazing vacation with Andi and Lisa! I loved seeing all the photos of her with the other dogs on the East Bay Packleader Facebook page. I think our dogs weekend was more fun than ours was!
Our dog, Django, had a fantastic time at Andi and Lisa's place -- he got to go for several dog walks and he took over quite a few of their comfortable dog beds and couches. A huge plus is that they post Facebook pictures of your dog throughout his/her stay, so we could see Django's happy face the entire time we were gone!
