About Lisa

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have the ability to provide one on one care due to the fact that I am in my own home and am home all day. I can also offer socialization for your pet with my own pets. I can assist with potty training. Take your pet for a walk, and give your pet a loving home away from home. I am a true pet lover thru and thru, and would treat your pet with the best of care. I do have a swimming pool but rest assured your pet will be supervised at all times while out side as I am use to providing with my own dog. I also have a cat who does her best to tolerate my sweet baby Ruby . Picture of my cat is included.

Daycare rate: 8 hours /$25.00.
Otherwise, $5.00 per hour.

EXCEPTION: Potty training for puppies - daycare rate for 8 hours is $35.00. Otherwise $7.00 per hour.

Overnight pottytraining is $40.00.

Pick up time and rate after nightly stay: NO CHARGE up to 2:00p.m. After 2:00p.m. daily rate as described above will be in effect. Thank You!

Lisa did an outstanding job hosting Marcel all day. She is a natural dog caretaker always a joy to talk to and makes us comfortable when we left Marcel. This was only the second place Marcel has stayed away from us.
Spike had a great time staying with Lisa and Ruby!
From the minute we met Lisa at the meet and greet, we knew she was the perfect match for our family. My husband and I thought she was great but, much more importantly, she and Nemo hit it off from the get-go. She made us all feel very welcome in her home and we were not the least bit hesitant about leaving our baby in her very capable hands when the time came. During our time away, Lisa kept us updated with photos and provided the very best care possible for Nemo. I hope that Lisa plans to keep sitting for many years to come!
Lisa was a wonderful host for Ms. Peanut. She has a great personality - MP her right away with little or no barking. Lisa's dog, Ruby and MP hit it off from the start. Would recommend Lisa to anyone that is in the Waco area and needs daycare!!
We left our Darcy with Lisa and Ruby for 12 days while we were in Europe! I never had a moment of concern that she is loved, well taken care of, and has a great time! I know that if a medical problem comes up Lisa is able and willing to tackle the issue with Darcy's Vet. Lisa walks her and and cares for her personal needs including medications! She is the best!! I highly recommend her!!
The Meet & Greet beforehand gave me lots of confidence about how my dog would get along with the other two who would be there during Rosie's week. I loved receiving pictures and updates during the week. I'm so happy Rosie had such a great week and I'm sure it's because of Lisa's care and attention to detail. I will certainly take Rosie back again!
We have never left Pippi for a lengthy stay however recently left her with Lisa for 12 days. Pippi did just fine and she was happy as she always is when she stays with Lisa & her furbaby Ruby.
Lisa and Ruby, her four-legged assistant, have been the perfect hostesses in our travels. My husband and I drop off our 20 pound poodle/mix dog and
he acts like he's already at home. Lisa's home is doggie-ready, and Lisa is friendly
and knowledgeable about what might help the dog
feel comfortable in the new environment.
We arrive and leave with smiles and confident we've
made the right decision to leave our pet here.
Our experience with Lisa was amazing! She is a delightful and caring person. We felt extremely comfortable leaving our Darcy with her. She gave us regular updates and sent pictures. My dog got along very well with hers! Her home was inviting tand comfortable and the yard was perfect for pets to play!! We have already scheduled another visit of 12 days for this summer. Dog sitting is a perfect fit for her! She really enjoys them!!
Lisa is the "best" and we wouldn't leave Pippi with anyone else.
Farrah has separation anxiety and Lisa was wonderful with her. We will be using Lisa again in the coming weeks.
Lisa was very nice and replied to my request right away, and even made arrangements on such short notice! She had plenty of yard space for our energetic dog to run around and have a blast. It was so comforting knowing our baby was left in great hands with her, I would definitely recommend her to all our dog owners!
Our DogVacay experience with Lisa M was perfect!
She was available when we needed her and
provided a well-maintained and inviting living space
for our less-than-trusting dog. Her status reports
during the stay showed a happy, relaxed dog..
We look forward to our next stay with her!
Another great vacay for Pippi staying with Lisa & Ruby. If you need a pet sitter.....Lisa is the best and will be our sitter for as long as we have Pippi.
Luna always enjoys her time with Lisa and Ruby! She is shy with people but feels completely comfortable with Lisa and comes home a happy and tired pup!
Lisa is great! My pups always receive lots of TLC, and they are happy to hang out in her comfy home and nice backyard.
Carol A. Our dog Pippi stayed again with Lisa & her fur baby Ruby and we were just as happy this time as we were the first time. Lisa is awesome and we would recommend her to anyone.
Lisa is the most awesome sitter EVER! We had never left our Buddy with anyone, and had to be away for a week. Lisa was an answer to our prayers. Buddy was right at home, and had such a good time. Lisa sent us lots of pictures every day, so we could see Buddy having fun, relaxing, exploring, and curling up with Lisa or Ruby, Lisa's dog. He was happy to see us, but I think he would have been happy to stay!
Thanks, Lisa, for taking such good care of our baby! You are the best!
Thanks, DogVacay, for providing such a great service. We will definitely use you again, and tell all our friends.
We have only left our "fur baby" Pippi with our best friends for 10 years when we went on vacation as we never trusted anyone else to take care of her. We found Lisa and read her positive reviews and had a meet & greet with her which we immediately felt so comfortable & confident to leave our baby with her. She watched her this week a few days & we know in the future we will leave Pippi with Lisa again as she will show her love and care for her like she does her own fur baby Ruby. Thanks so much Lisa!!
My dogs love Lisa and it gives me peace of mind to know they are happy and well taken care of. I would recommend her to anyone.
My puppies enjoyed their visit with Lisa. I was very happy with how Lisa cared for my boys. She genuinely seems to love dogs. I could not find a better caretaker.
After a very nice meet n greet (and approval from Ruby, the resident and benevolent Queen), we felt very comfortable leaving our little Corgi, Maya, in Lisa's care for a day. We were not in the slightest bit disappointed. Lisa is wonderful -- she loves and cares for your dog as if they were her own. When we picked Maya up she gave us the details of all the fun they had that day. Maya seemed very content to continue running around and playing. There's no one else we will call now when we need to leave Maya for any length of time.

Thanks again Lisa!
I felt very comfortable leaving Luna with Lisa, I especially loved that I knew Luna got a ton of exercise while she was there. She came home and was exhausted! Lisa sent daily updates and pictures of my pup, letting me know anything exciting they did that day. I will definitely be booking with Lisa if I need to board Luna again.
My two dogs loved Lisa! She showered them with attention and kept them warm and cozy in her home during a week of yucky weather. I received photo updates via email and I could tell my dogs were happy and healthy, and that they were getting along great with her dog. I really appreciated that Lisa spent so much time at home with them. I will definitely keep her at the top of my dog-sitter list!
Lisa is fantastic. She provided professional and amazing care of my two kiddos. We loved the numerous photos we received of them while we were gone. Not to mention a few phone calls to ensure they were getting proper food amounts and medicine. She even went out of her way to contact us to find out their normal dog food since they were running a little low with one day left so she could go pick up more. At no point did I ever worry about my kiddos. It is obvious that Lisa is a true pet lover!
Lisa made me feel confident my dog would be well cared for in our absence. She followed my directions and assured me my dog would get plenty of attention. Izzie got along well with her dog and I know she enjoyed playing with Ruby. I have never been able to leave my dog in a kennel or cage at the Vet's because she has separation anxiety. She would not be happy. We came home to a content and happy dog. I recommend Lisa to anyone who wants the best care you can get for their best friend.
Lisa was absolutely wonderful, as a dog-sitter and person! My pup, Watson, had a great time at her house! He was able to have full run of her huge backyard, which he absolutely loved! She even let him eat dinner outside, and I know he thought that was the best treat ever! She took some pictures of him throughout the day, and called me with an update halfway through his visit. If we weren't moving away, she would be on my speed-dial to watch him all the time! I can't say enough good things about her, our entire experience was just perfect!! =]
I am very happy with leaving woowoo with Lisa and her dog Ruby. She is very caring and made sure to call me to let me know how woowoo was doing. That put my mind to ease. When I picked her up she even seemed to not want to leave so I know she enjoyed herself. Lisa has a nice accommodating house and backyard that I think is enjoyable for the dogs and Ruby is a sweetheart and got along well with her. I will definitely be bringing woowoo back.
