About Lisa

**** My dog Sophie has suffered a leg injury and I will be unavailable through the end of 2015 **** Thank you.

About me - I'm a stay-at-home mom, married with a son in high school and a daughter in college. My full-time job is taking care of my family, our spacious 4,000 sq ft home and our 4 year old border collie mix, Sophie.

About Sophie - Sophie is our rescue dog. She is shy at first, very sweet and gets along with other dogs. Outdoors she loves to go on walks, run, swim and play fetch. Indoors she is very mellow, loves to nap by my side and isn't much of a barker. Friendly, even keeled dogs are her best buddies. Sophie likes her personal space and is very much an alpha dog. She does well with dogs that will respect her boundaries.

During your dog's stay, we'll enjoy regular bathroom breaks and walks in the beautiful hillside neighborhood of Kottinger Ranch. We may also venture over to Shadow Cliffs Regional Park for a little trail time or some swimming. Cuddling on the sofa with our family is a favorite evening activity. When it's bedtime, your pet will be sleeping comfortably with us in our bedroom.

I'm an organized and thoughtful person. Your dog's routine and any special needs will be taken care of. I'm interested in spending quality time with your pet and will only board 1 to 2 dogs at a time.

A meet-and-greet and proof of vaccinations for your dog will be required. House trained only. I will need to leave the house periodically to run errands, go to the gym etc. I can only take pets that are well-behaved while unsupervised (or crated) for an hour or two. Rest assured that I will be home most of the time with your dog but I do need to pop in and out of the house.

Thank you.

Lisa is an amazing and energetic caregiver. We know Rusty is in great hands whenever he is with Lisa. Thank you Lisa!!!
Lisa watched our dogs while we were on vacation in Ireland. Lisa sent us updates and pictures almost every day. It made us feel comfortable that everything was going well and it also helped us miss our pets a little less. The dogs were really happy and comfortable with Lisa and her family. We will definitely have Lisa take care of our pups again.
After our initial meet and greet with Lisa and Sophie we booked an overnight for our 7 year old mini Aussie, Rusty.
Lisa was great! She took Rusty out for walks and sent pictures of him hanging with Sophie.
She responded very quickly not only to my initial inquiry, but also to questions I had while he was there. We absolutely loved the updates and photos which helped put our mind at ease while we were out of town.
We picked up a happy and tuckered out dog and are thankful for such a positive experience!
Lisa was so sweet to my pup Banjo and treated him like he was part of her family! I was very lucky to have found her since I had to book last minute :)

Banjo was all smiles all weekend long in the pics that she was sending me and I would definitely definitely definitely book her again.
My dog, Gus, has his first stay with Lisa. Everything went great. From the meet and greet, to the drop off, to the pickup. Lisa was friendly and took genuine interest in Gus. She sent daily photos and updates. A key thing for Gus was to ensure that he was exercised every day and Lisa was committed to that which was important to me. I already am booked for more visits!! Thanks Lisa!
Lisa is the best DogVacay host! She quickly responded to my last minute request for a host when my hubby and I were in a pinch. Lisa gladly accepted our request to watch my 1-year old lab Charlie for 2 days. Charlie absolutely loves swimming! Lisa was kind enough to take her dog Sofie as well as my dog Charlie to the local Shadow Cliffs twice in one day to run around and go swimming! When I came to pick up Charlie after work, Lisa had all of Charlie's dog supplies in the bag that I brought ready at the door. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking for an incredible DogVacay host! I will definitely use her again. Thanks Lisa!
Lisa was great with all of our dogs (2 Cavaliers and a border collie mix rescue). She was very attentive to each dog and really wanted to understand their personalities. Our rescue is very cautious with new things and new people but she felt so comfortable with Lisa after a short time that she jumped up in her lap. Dogs can sense "dog people"!
