About Lisa

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am currently offering day care services in addition to overnight boarding! I would love to spend the day or a week with your baby!

I have grown up with animals my entire life, and can not imagine my life without them in it.
My husband (Jamie) and I have a large fenced back yard and as a bonus there is a green belt directly behind our home. There is lots of room for daily walks and roaming. My pups, Harley, Midnight and King can't wait to make new friends. The pups love running and playing in the backyard, and in the summer we have a puppy pool for those that enjoy splashing around. For those pups that prefer to be inside we have plenty of toys, bones, balls etc to have fun indoors! When everyone has had enough play time our home is warm, comfortable and has extra doggie beds perfect for peaceful puppy dreams.
I used to travel extensively for work and can fully understand the stress of leaving our beloved furry friends with people we don't know. I can promise you that your companion will be loved and cared for as if it were my own.
Jamie and I look forward to meeting you and welcoming your babies into our home and family.

I am so glad we found Lisa. Deuce loves to go to her house, she runs right to Lisa which lets us know she is in good hands, we don't have to worry about Deuce.
Lisa's communication was friendly and professional before I dropped off Gizmo before my trip. When I showed up for the drop off, I didn't see inside the home because the husband was sleeping on the couch. My friend, who picked Gizmo up, didn't see inside the home either. He said Lisa met him outside as she did me. They were having a party in the garage when he showed up. I filled out the Dog Vacay form which asked how many updates I would like and I requested daily updates. I had to reach out to Lisa for the ONE update I received (Gizmo was there for 4 days). She apologized for not contacting me before, but was dealing with a sick puppy. The one update I received included a picture of Gizmo's face. I know what my dog looks like. What I would have liked to see is how he was adjusting to his environment and interacting with the other dogs. I never saw the overall environment. Once home, I discovered that Gizmo was sick and dealing with diarrhea -- possibly from the sick puppy. Not really happy. I'm still cleaning up Gizmo's diarrhea and don't know what's wrong with him.

She was great with my dog and very great with communication and flexibility.
The experience we had was okay. It was strange that we were not invited to go inside the home. She took our dog through the garage when he was dropped off and we had to text her when we were there to pick him up so she could bring him back out through the garage. We also had to text Lisa first to ask how he was doing. I wish she would of sent us a text in the morning letting us know he was alright. When we picked him up his breath smelled AWFUL. I thought it was his fur , which is understandable if there are other dogs but it was his breath. It never smells so it took me a back. We gave him a large sum of food and got nothing back in return. I wrote instructions and included my own measuring cup. If she had fed him correctly I should of received quite a bit of food back. Overall, he was fine but as a dog owner it really is unsettling when you do not know what the inside of the home looks like. I feel that if you are paying money for your dog to stay you should get a quick tour to see where he will be sleeping & playing etc. I will not book again for this reason.

Highly recommended! Great communication, fast response and easy to work with!
Lisa took very good care of my pups. They looked happy throughout their stay and there were no issues throughout the process. Would have liked a few more updates but that isn't a deal breaker. She had her hands full over the Thanksgiving holiday.
We left our baby lab with lisa for 8 days when we were away for thanksgiving in florida.She was absolutely welcoming host.She was very accomodating for marley and extremely flexible unlike others who have specific pick up and drop times.She took great care of marley and marley enjoyed staying with her he ate and slept well which was my biggest worry.Marley had a lot of dogs and toys to play.Thankyou so much lisa we are grateful to you and marley will be a repeat guest whenever we travel. Because of lisa we could enjoy our vacay and not worry about him she kept sending timely updates which was very assuring ! Thanks a lot lisa from both mihir and myself and marley love you!❤️️❤️️

Lisa always takes great care of our big fur-baby! She replies to texts quickly and even sends pictures! I would recommend her to anyone!
Lisa was awesome with our Great Dane Brutus. We returned after 2 weeks away to Brutus in good shape and well cared for. I recommend Lisa to anyone who needs a dog sitter while out of town.
Lisa and her husband were very nice. I was worried about leaving Deuce with a family instead of a daycare/broading facility. Deuce had a wonderful time and came home very tired.

Lisa also was able to fit in my friends dogs who are trying to make it to St Thomas but can't fly out yet, so we are taking care of them and all 3 of the dogs had a great time.

Lisa gave me an update immediately after I texted her and she noticed a bump on Emma that was already looked at by a vet, but it made me feel better that she noticed it and made a comment to me about it.

Emma is very skittish and it sounded like Lisa took the time to pet and belly rub her to make her feel more comfortable.

I will definately use Lisa again!!

Lisa was great! Our pups came back completely exhausted from all the play time.
Lisa was great. Dogs seemed very happy when we picked them up. We will be repeat guests!
Thanks again, Lisa for accommodating me at the last minute. George had a great time!!
The most stressful part of my recent trip was who would take care of George. He's an older dog who's easily stressed My fears were all for not as he had a great time with Lisa! She was very flexible and accommodating. Even when my flight back to Denver was delayed. I was able to book another night at the last minute without a problem. Thank you, Lisa! I'll definitely be booking a stay with you in the future.

Lisa did a great job with my dogs! My dogs had a great time I will definitely be using Lisa again in the future!
Our golden reteriver puppy loved staying with Lisa! We'll definitely be going back again to see Lisa whenever Archie needs a home away from home.
Lisa D took very good care of my 2 chihuahuas while I was out of town. She answered my texts promptly and sent a picture to let me know they were doing well. On return she brought one at a time. They were comfortable with her and well behaved. I will definitely use her again!

Phoebe had a great second stay with Lisa and her dogs. She came away from this stay noticeably less nervous about being around other dogs, which is a problem she has had. She has needed doggy socialization, and Lisa's home is a great place for it!
Lisa was great! It was our first time leaving our pup over a weekend with anyone and she was so wonderful and put us at ease! Roary had a great time and we will definitely be using her again!
Lisa is really great! She is our go-to person to watch our dog, Triscuit, and has watched her many times. Whenever I bring our dog over, she always gets super excited to get to stay with Lisa. When we pick Triscuit up, she's always exhausted from playing so much. Our dog loves water and Lisa will even put out a little doggy pool for her to play in! I would highly recommend using her if you need someone to watch your pet and treat them like her own! :)

Easy, pain free experience! Friendly and responsive.
Lisa was fantastic under the worst circumstances. My pup apparently wasn't feeling social her first day in an unfamiliar place and jumped over the back fence to go it alone. She has spent the last 10 years going to the same boarder in Brighton, but now that I've moved to south Denver, that's just too far to drive. Lisa did such a great job trying to hunt her down that I know I can trust my love with her...she just needs to get more familiar (and not be trusted in the back yard ;). I'm taking her back this week.

She took good care of our sometimes nervous dog. By the time we picked up Luna, she seemed to have bonded to Lisa. We will use her again.
Our dog had a great time. Thanks Lisa!
She is absolutely wonderful with out boxer Titan! He and so much fun while we were on vacation and I definitely look forward to using her again for our next vacation coming up! It's also great there are always other dogs around so it's plenty of play time!

Lisa was great with our dogs, highly recommended!
Lisa took great care of our dog over the Thanksgiving holiday and we wouldn't hesitate to leave him in her care again. She sent us regular updates throughout our vacation and our dog had a great time playing with her and the other dogs she was caring for!

Pups had a great time as always!!! Thank you Lisa!
Lisa is fabulous. She is calm and reassuring to pets and people. Toby, my 100 lb Weimar Raner, tends to be stand offish and distant with people he doesn't know, but when I picked him up, he was treating her like she belonged to him, and was clearly fond of her.

She was very tolerant of my very hyper and sometimes too energetic Ruby also. I highly recommend her.

I was impressed with how quickly and accurately she read all the dogs' personalities and treated them with love and acceptance while accommodating specific, distinct personal idiosyncricities.

Thank you for the peace of mind that comes from knowing my dogs are in good hands.

Sadie had a great time at Lisa's house! She loved being outside and having some room to sniff and play. Sadie can be nervous in new environments, but she made herself right at home. We would definitely come back!
Lisa was very flexible when I needed to make an extension to my pups stay.
Excellent experience with a week-long visit for our dog. We appreciated her willingness to accommodate our schedule with picking up. Our pup is sufficiently worn out. I know he enjoyed the playtime with the other dogs and playing in the pool. Lisa also sent pictures and a text update with a report card at the end of his visit. Thanks!

Lisa was very flexible and took very good care of our pups. My family and I were able to enjoy our vacation without worrying about our pups being locked in a kennel all day. We will definitely use Lisa again!! MK
We recently had a bad experience at a local kennel, so were very wary about leaving our dog with anyone. I found Dog Vacay online, read all of the reviews about Lisa, and decided to give her a try . I'm so glad we did!

We met Lisa prior to leaving our dog with her, and we felt very comfortable with her and with her house/yard. Once our vacation started, Lisa was very good to text updates and pictures, and she didn't seem bothered at all when I would contact her to ask how things were going. When I picked my dog up, I could tell he had been well taken care of. In fact, he's currently pouting by my feet because he doesn't have other dogs to play with like he did at her house.

I would definitely recommend Lisa and would leave my dog with her anytime! (Just knowing that your dog isn't stuck in a kennel all day is worth giving it a try.)

I thought this would be a good place to leave my beloved dog. The entire week I was away, I only received one photo of my dog. When we returned for her she was limp and unexcited. Lisa told me that she had been bitten by a mosquito, but once we got home and I examined it, it was clearly a dog bite I could see teeth imprints and her hair was missing. The next morning, I took her in for a vet check-up, her energy level was very low she looked and act ill. The vet confirmed that it was a dog bite. I contacted Lisa to inform her that it was not a mosquito bite but a dog. She was apologetic even offered to pay half the vet/prescription cost. I accepted the offer but when it came time for her to pay me the money she ignored my calls/voice mails & text messages. A couple days later, my dogs is still not back to her regular activities and behavior, she then started this whooping, gagging, choking noise so I took her back to the vet. My dog is then diagnosed with Kennel cough, the vet explained to me that it started days later is because, it takes up 10 days to be full blown is why it was not detected on the first check up and it is contagious amongst dogs. Which is now another vet visit and prescription cost. I did not expect to incur extra charges leaving my dog in the care of Lisa D. I have used another Dog Vacay last year, which was not available for my booking, and my dog was very well taken care of and returned home perfectly fine. Sadly, I cant say the same this time.

Lisa was terrific. She was attentive, responsive, and treated my dogs like they were her own. We plan to have our dogs stay with her in the future.
The stay was great!
Once again our four year old Lab Dakota returned home happy, healthy, and tuckered out from constant play. She always has a fun time with Lisa.
Maggie stayed with Lisa for over a week. She has a fenced in back yard and exercised a lot. Well taken care of. Felt like she was in great hands and would use Lisa again in the future.
Lisa was absolutely awesome!!!!! We were in a situation that was either find someone to take care of Hagen or leave him. She was so kind and helpful and we will definitely use her again if we are in that area!!
Another successful stay with Lisa! My pup Clark loves going over there. Despite the rainy weather Denver had in my absence, Lisa still managed to make sure Clark was entertained and happy.

The best part about this trip was his report card! It made me so happy to see straight A's down the line with a few A++'s to boot!

We loved Lisa. Our black lab, Lily, stayed with her for a couple of days and had a good time while she was there. Lisa sent us pictures and updates throughout Lily's stay, which was very nice. We will definitiely use her again!
Lisa was fantastic with our little guy! She sent us updates on his time with her and even gave us a puppy report card when we picked him up. We will definitely be using her again in the future.
This was Buster's second visit with Lisa D. Lisa is a great host and we can go away knowing Buster is well cared for!
Lisa was so flexible and easy to work with! Our dogs had a great time and we will definitely book with her again!
100% better than any boarding facility or dog sitter we've ever used before. Sent really cool pictures and updates while we went on a cruise to Mexico for a week that we got to check out while in port. Gave us a great recap and report card when we picked our pup up that made us feel even better about the entire experience. Will most definitely use her services for both dog sitting and day care in the future!

My dog is pretty shy and nervous around new people but Lisa was great with her. By the time I picked up my dog she seemed comfortable and happy. Lisa was very flexible as far as drop off and pick up times which was very convenient. Lisa did a great job!

This was my second time leaving my pup with Lisa and I was looking forward to it because I knew how much he loved it the first time. I can tell he is always sad to leave her house because he loves playing with her two dogs. And, she walks my dog everyday and says he loves cuddling on her couch at night.
Lisa is so friendly and flexible as far as drop off and pick up times. Made is so easy when my flight was delayed coming back into town.
I've already booked two more trips this year and I'm definitely planning on booking two more doggie vacations with her when I'm out of town!

This was the first time I left my dog overnight somewhere and Lisa was great. My dog loved playing with her dogs. The night I picked him up and brought him home he was so calm and tuckered out, he slept so well....I loved it.
Lisa is so nice and gave me great feedback on how my dog did while he was at her house. I will definitely be taking him back when I have to go out of town again.

Where do I even begin! :)

Lisa and her husband Jamie were amazing.I left my baby Clark Kent with them the week of Christmas and was relieved to know he was in good hands.

From the moment I met Lisa, and visited her home, I knew she was the perfect home for Clark to be in while I was gone.

She sent me several photos and countless text message updates to let me know that Clark was getting along well with the other pups and was adjusting just fine!!

She even sent me a report card for Clark's stay, and he passed with flying colors. I will definitely be using her in the future and will recommend her to anyone who needs a fabulous sitter!!! :)

Another great job by Lisa. This was the second stay with Lisa for dog and it is plain to see that our dog is well cared for and enjoys the time she gets to spend at Lisa's.
Lisa was great!!! She accepted my request on very short notice (over a holiday weekend) and was extremely professional. We spoke on the phone prior to the stay so she could gain any useful information about Blue and any special needs. When I dropped Blue off, I met some of the other dogs staying the weekend. Lisa provided me with pictures of my dog during his stay and also gave me a report card when I picked him up from her house. Blue got an A++ for playing well with others! :) I would suggest Lisa as a host EVERYTIME!!! So thankful for her and the experience. P.S. Blue was exhausted the next two days after the stay. Yippy!!!

Lisa and her husband Jamie did a great job with our Lab who has a lot pf playful energy. Lots of play time and individual attention was provided and it was clear to me that Lisa and Jamie both loved having her. I highly recommend them as host for your dog.

Lisa was awesome to to work with! We had to make a short notice trip out of town and Lisa saved the day! Our pups had never spent the night away from home, let alone 4 days. Lisa made our pups feel at home and gave them both lots and lots of love.
