About Liz

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, and welcome to Pooch Perfect In San Diego, CA. Our home is located in the High Country West Area of Rancho Bernardo This is your pup's home away from home. They get to enjoy the great outdoors in our large backyard and play tug-of-war with our resident dog, Tyson. Or just relax and soak in the California sun. I offer daily walks and lots of lovin' throughout the day! At the end of the day, after they are completely exhausted, they get to choose which bed and who to snuggle up with for the night! We have 2 boys who I am sure will be fighting over who will get to sleep with your pup tonight! Worried about how your beloved family member is doing? No worries! I will gladly send you daily texts/e-mails with photos on how they are doing and all the fun they are having. There is no place like home but hopefully this will be a close 2nd!

For those dogs who don't like too many dogs around and would rather be the "only" dog, I can accommodate them with a $25 add on fee per night.

Liz is awesome! This was my first visit for my boy, Rocky, who is an "elder statesman". We did a meet and greet first and I knew immediately that she would care for him as I had hoped. Liz and her son are warm and total dog lovers, and her house is great. Clean and well-maintained and she is very thoughtful. She texted me daily updates and pics, which allowed me to focus on my work and out my mind at ease. I'm already booking my next trip with her.
Organizing with Liz was super easy - she was flexible and always responded promptly. We also appreciated the updates and pics of Milo during his stay. Milo can be a bit anxious when staying with others and it was evident that Liz went out of her way to make him feel comfortable and gave him some extra TLC. We've already recommended Liz to family that may be visiting the San Diego area.
This was our very first experience. Liz was very prompt and reliable! We did a meet and greet and knew she was a perfect fit for one of our dogs! She responded quickly to all our questions/concerns immediately. Very happy with her service!
Liz is wonderful! My dog was there for 3 nights and Liz and her family took wonderful care of her. Thanks Liz!
Melo had a great time at Liz's house - highly recommended! A+++++++++
Liz is absolutely wonderful! I have a very anxious golden retriever and she loves Liz and her family. They spoil her to death:)
Libby had a great time! Emailed pictures were great too!
Liz was fantastic! She and her family were awesome, took very good care and kept me updated with pictures throughout my dogs stay! I would go back to her for another dogvacay in a heartbeat! - Thank you so much Liz! :D
Liz and her two boys are true dog lovers. If you want your pup to be in a warm, welcoming environment while you're away - reserve your next Dogvacay with Liz!
Liz and family were HANDS DOWN the BEST hosts EVER! They loved our furry family members like their own. They sent us pictures and updates daily. I cannot express how refreshing it is to know the dogs were in a safe, clean place with a family who loved them and communicated with us while we were gone. :) They have an amazing family that all care and welcome the dogs :) The back yard is large, open, dog friendly with toys and fresh water. We will be back and recommend Liz, family, and resident Labrador to everyone we know :)
Liz did a fine job with our dog Duke. While I booked the vacay, my wife did all the interaction with Liz and she had nothing but good things to say. Glad we had her to look after him on such short notice as well! Thanks Liz!
Thanks Liz! We are completely satisfied with the level of care we got for our dog Gunner. We were happy to receive several pictures of Gunner having fun with the other dogs. Gunner really felt at home with Liz. We will definitely take him there again! We also highly recommend Liz for anyone who is looking for a place to take their dog.

Thank You Liz!!

Liz, I can't thank you enough! This was our first trip leaving Meeko, my one year old blue heeler, with a sitter. I was so nervous about leaving him with someone else but from the moment Liz had us over for a meet and greet my mind started to settle. We were gone for a long weekend out of state and Liz made me feel like I was barely far from Meeko the whole trip. She sent me adorable photos of Meeko throughout the trip and gave me awesome updates. When I got him back, he almost seemed sad that his vacation was over too. I'm so glad he had so much fun, we would book again any day. Thank you.
Liz was great from the start, she made me feel at ease knowing that Lilly would be taken care of. Pictures sent also to let me know how she was doing. Thank you Liz for the great service for Lilly.
Liz is a great dog sitter. She has a great home and was very accommodating. My dog was just there over 1 night and she took great care of her. I could tell my dog had some great play time too. I will definitely use Liz again when I need a dog sitter.
Liz was very accommodating and communicative. She was able to help me with my adjusting schedule on more than one occasion. Max loved his visit! I felt confident that he was safe and well cared for, and I loved the text updates throughout his visit. This was our first time using dogvacay, and I'm sure it won't be the last. Thanks, Liz!
Our little mix named TJ is usually very reserved and shy around anyone that pet sits him. He is used to being with a family. I usually send him to a kennel at a large chain, and he always comes back rattled and scared from his experience. Now that I have discovered Liz, I will never send him to a kennel again. He came back happy, and he seemed so comfortable. When I picked him up after a week's stay, we were saying our goodbyes, and I could tell he really loved his host family....and the best part is I will not feel guilty about leaving him again because I know he is so well taken care of. Thank you, Liz!
Liz was great and accommodated our schedule. Bella enjoyed her stay!
Felt very comfortable and at ease, leaving my pug, Rosie with Liz and her family. She forwarded my daily photos with a short message each day. We already have her booked again for next time!
Liz and her family are experienced and very welcoming. They have a lovely well kept home. Liz is organized and carefully listens to any details you wish to leave. They pictures she sent were very reassuring since this was our very first experience with leaving our boy with anyone but friends and family. One of the great advantages was that we were able to bring our dog with us for most of our trip and then leave him so near by that if anything happened we could easily go by and get him. So relaxing to know he was well cared for. I would book Liz again in a minute. Thanks, Liz and family.
Liz was excellent at communicating prior to Winston's stay, she was also very flexible and accommodating for our changing schedule needs. Winston had a wonderful time and I loved receiving the photos of all his fun! Definitely will book again!
We left our dog with Liz for the first time last week. She was fantastic. We'll definitely use her again.
Muttie and Jeff had a marvelous time at Liz's house! The next time we go to the Poway end of San Diego, we're also going to stay with Liz. Why should the dogs have all the fun? We got daily photos which captured our boys' personalities and were always very reassuring about their safety and happiness. Clearly our short friends were having a wonderful time and were never wanting for attention or affection. Liz and her family were gracious and welcoming and invited Muttie and Jeff into a great many elements of the life of their family. The boys were able to find comfortable places to sleep near humans and were delighted by their accommodations.
Liz is a lifesaver! We had an urgent sitter need (not my style; I plan things months in advance) and Liz came to the rescue! She was flexible and helped put us at ease. Our pup was also on medication at this time and that was no problem. What could have been a very stressful time for our family was made wonderful by Liz's dog mama talents. Her son is also a great assistance and loves our little pup. It makes such a difference to be able to travel and know that your doggies are in good hands. Thank you, Liz!
Liz was the best sitter for our little poodle mix girl, Millie! We needed 8 days and were nervous to leave her with a "stranger" for her first time. We scheduled a meet and greet and Liz was very nurturing and knowledgeable about dogs, you can tell she cares about her little clients. Millie sleeps on our bed and Liz assured me that would be fine for Millie to do the same at their house. I received pics daily and Millie looked completely at home and happy, Our dog is a rescue and can be fearful with people and large dogs, but she shared the big people bed with Tyson (Liz's dog) and made herself at home! .Liz communicated with us within minutes to answer any questions and we were completely at ease knowing Millie was safe and happy. We will bring Millie to Liz's house whenever we travel!! Highly recommended A++
Liz and her family are great. They love dogs! We feel very lucky to have her take care of our dog when out of town. Thanks Liz!
Miyuki had a great time. I would recommend Liz anytime. No issues, pick up and drop off times worked well for us both.
Ricky had a great time. We enjoyed all the pictures that were sent and letting us know how Ricky was doing. I really appreciated her flexibility.
Great Vacay Liz is flexible and kind...amidst the stress of s busy weekend for me she was so calm and helpful and I knew my pups were in good hands. Liz has a great yard, perfect doggie Mommie demeanor and great kids that cuddle up and play with your pups. Doggies were happy and relaxed. Yay! I highly recommend Liz's home for your next get away.
We left our big baby Maddie a golden retriever with Liz and from the pictures Liz sent us she was a very happy camper and totally spoiled! I don't think she even cared if we came back to pick her up! We are so happy we found a good home for Maddie when we go out of town. Thanks Liz! You are the best!
Liz took care of our Ginger last weekend on short notice. We received wonderful photos throughout the weekend that let us know she was really well taken care of. Liz's home is perfect for dogs with lots of room to run. Ginger loves other dogs and she had a great time playing with Liz's dog, Tyson and other dogs there on vacay. Ginger came home very happy and healthy! We will definitely use Liz's services again and would heartily recommend her to anyone seeking a safe, fun and inexpensive home for their dog while away. Thanks Liz!
Perfect as always!
Trixie and Peanut stayed for another round with Liz. I think this is out 12th or more stay. That says it all.

Liz and her family were amazing. Couldn't ask for a better experience with furry family members!
Liz and her whole family were the best they made our dogs feel special and realy took took the worrie away from us leaving them without us. The children were the main reson for leaving them with this fantastic family.dogs and children what is not to like. We will only use liz c from now on . thank you so much Brandon and marci michelson
Perfect once again! Liz and family always take good care of my old buddy Reggie...makes it much easier to leave him if I have to for any reason! Thanks a ton!
Liz is amazing! She took very good care of my dog Jodi and gave her lots of love. Liz kept me updated the whole time with texts and photos which really put me at ease. The resident dog Tyson is such a good boy, he and Jodi got along great. I will definetly use Liz again. In fact, I just booked Jodi's next vacation.
I must say, Liz gave my dog Ruby (redbone coonhound) high energy so much love. Liz is a wonderful person and she truly loves her job. I am so lucky to have found her. She's my go to person. Thanks Liz your the BEST!! Antoinette
Liz was the absolute best! She is a true dog lover and so is the rest of her family. We got pictures of our Sydney every day. She came home happy and tired! Highly recommend Liz-we will definitely use her again!!
I cannot thank Liz and her family enough. She was truly the perfect host for my 15 year old dog, Reggie. She was very accommodating towards my difficult schedule, and was as sweet a person as you could ask for. My dog can be a bit touchy and difficult in his old age, but I never once felt like he was a burden or inconvenience at Liz's house, and her family treated Reggie like he was one of their own! I will definitely go back to Liz when I need someone to watch my dog in the future! THANK YOU!
I found Liz on dogvacay and I am glad to say that my dog really enjoyed his stay with Liz. She has a large backyard which was a big plus. She also sent me regular updates which I really appreciated. She responds to messages very quickly, we will definitely visit her again, soon!
Liz and the family were Great! Exactly the experience we were looking for, for our high energy lab mix! Liz kept in touch with us during our trip with photos periodically to reassure us that all was going well, and that was very much appreciated! Would recommend and use her again! Thanks Liz
We love Liz and her family. We'll be coming back before you know it.
Perfect as usual!
Perfect again!
Awesome home! Great pet sitter.
Perfect as usual! Our go to family for when we are away.
My dog stayed with Liz for 2 weeks while I traveled overseas. She was really well looked after, and it was so nice to receive updates on how she was doing. She obviously had lots of fun playing with the other dogs and being a part of Liz' family! I would definitely ask Liz to watch her in the future, great to have someone like her around!
My corgi dissolve much better with Liz and her family than he would have staying in a cage for two weeks. We will use Liz again.
We had a lot on our minds on this trip and it was so great not to have to worry about Riley, too. Thanks, Liz!
Max had a great time at Liz's house. He had a lot of fun with other doggies and he got so much attention. Liz kept us updated daily with pictures and how he is doing. We were so glad that he is doing fine while we were away and I highly recommend Liz.
our Kelly girl (almost 14) was very well cared for while staying with Liz and her family for a week. We could tell by the pictures and comments that she was loved and treated special because of her age. For sure would recommend to anyone who wants there dog to be taken care of properly. and we would use again if ever have the need to..
Toby had a great time in Liz's home. I wasn't worried one bit. She posted photo updates and was very responsive with communication. What made it even better was Toby having additional dogs to play with. Their family dog is super friendly!! I would definitely recommend - in fact, I already have :) Thanks!
Our reach out to Liz to board our dog Teddy was very short notice, but she and her family were wonderful in making time to accommodate an introductory visit, and then meet our 'same day' boarding need.

This was Teddy's first time away from home and so he was a bit nervous in the beginning as he got familiar with his surroundings. Liz and family did a great job in making him feel welcome and it wasn't long before he was playing with their dog Tyson in the backyard and making himself at home! We very much appreciated her patience and special attention in getting him acclimated.

We would definitely use Liz again for a future boarding need!
I could not thank Liz enough for watching my two huskies yesterday! We lived out of town & needed a last minute reservation and she took our furbabies in last minute, without a meet and greet, and enabled us to enjoy our day in Escondido without worrying about them! She even sent pictures throughout the stay, which made me feel SO much better about the experience (it was my first time dropping either of them off with ANYONE!). Highly recommended.. thank you again SO much Liz!
We absolutely love having our 2 dogs stay with Liz and her family. They get so much love and attention. Liz sends pictures while the pups are staying with her and is very responsive. We will use Liz again and again!
Liz is an awesome sitter. The house is full of love and our dogs love staying with her. Used her twice in two weeks and our pups will stay with her again!
Liz is fantastic! We decided to head out of town last minute and she was easy to work with, super accommodating, and it was a stress-free departure for our dog, Gilly.

While we were away, Gilly enjoyed the company and playful attention of Liz, her family, her dog, and the other dog Vacay friends!

Liz sent us pics of Gilly playing with other fur friends, going for walks, and just chilling from her day of fun.

We'll definitely use Liz again. A trusted dog Vacay home for our pup!
With our trip only a few days away, we were able to book with Liz. We looked at some reviews and read a little bit about Liz and her family and knew that our dog Jack would fit right in. Liz was very responsive when it came to communicating with us both before and during Jack's stay.

Jack had a fun 4 days with Liz and her boys. During his stay, we received pictures and a video to see how Jack was doing. When Jack was favoring his right, front leg during a play session, Liz immediately let us know. Our conversations let me know that it was because of an old injury. This gave us peace of mind.

We appreciated how easy it was to work with Liz and would definitely book with her again when we come back to San Diego!
We felt immediately comfortable with Liz, and were delighted to know that Riley would have two boys to hang out with. He loves kids. The house is roomy and spotless, the yard has a lush lawn that I know Riley loved, and Liz kept us informed of his stay throughout. Highly recommend.
