Welcome! My name is Lidija, I am retired dental assistant and currently house wife and mama to my 8 year old very sweet pug Buster. He is very friendly to all dogs and loves to play.We have very nice yard and a dogie door

My husband and I are rock climbers and all three of us love outdoors and our beautiful trails

Very good communication. Fast and clear. Clean and friendly house, big backyard. Photos and videos from the walks. Our dog was happy. Thanks Lidija.
Lydia is wonderful in every way!
Lidija is Awesome!! Duke had a great vacation. He got to go on walks and play with new friends. Lidija sent me photos of him during his stay which was nice to see him happy and well taken care of.
Thank you so much, we will for sure recommend and revisit Lidija!!
Lidija is fantastic! Her house and yard are beautiful, clean, warm, and friendly and she did a top-notch job taking care of my babies. She took them out for daily walks (which my boys really loved!) and made sure to keep me updated with texts and photos. The dogs came home happy and healthy, one of them didn't want to come with me! He wanted to stick around with Lidijia because he had such a fantastic time. I will definitely use Lidijia again in the future, she's a wonderful dog sitter. And many thanks to Pete as well!
I can't tell you what a great place this is to take your dog!! My first time away and was very nervous, Lidija was very attentive to my dog and to me! Heard from her every day with pictures of all their activities! Made my trip lots better knowing how well my dog was being cared for!! Will for sure go back to her for future care, the best!! Thank you Lidija.
My dog had another great time with Lidija and Buster. She always takes him on a walk. It's a home away from home for him.
First time I have ever left my dog with a boarder. Just moved to the area and needed someone to watch my dog. He's 8.5 years old and has only ever stayed with family. Lidija was great. Very welcoming and Buster was too. My dog loved staying there and it truly felt like a home away from home.

Took great care of my dog (Tucker) for almost two weeks. She texted me daily with updates and pictures. My dog is a bit skittish and was a little nervous in the new environment. She really made an effort to give him attention to help him feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Lidija. She is a very nice lady.
Lidija was wonderful, not just with my 3 pup's, but with me as well :) I felt comfortable with her the first time we spoke on the phone. I was a little high maintenance, as I had never left my dogs away from home for boarding, but I was definitely put at ease at our meet and greet. Lidija and Peter provide a doggies paradise at their beautiful home. Everything is set up to accommodate and without a doubt they are both animal lover's. The photo's she kept me updated with were so reassuring. I could see my pup's were relaxed and happy. After a long weekend I picked up a contented pack and have another weekend reserved in the near future. Thank you Lidija and Peter.
Toby actually runs for the house when we pull up because he loves hanging out here so much:) I love all the pictures Lidija sends while he stays here too. I don't have to worry when I drop him off because I know he is well cared for while we're gone.
She was fabulous in her quick response and squeezing in our 14 year old Pomeranian, Yyeore last minute . She is quite knowledgeable in an array of breeds as well as great lover for taking care of any pets. She is highly trustworthy. Plus, she is a hoot to talk to about her life and listening to ours. I only wished I had Moore time to visit. For any travelers, she is a 5 star dog sitter with a heart of gold!. Just allow extra time to visit with her, she is fascinating woman. We thank you again Lidija!!!!! The Burns.l
Absolutely great! She took such an interest in MC and asked questions that really were helpful in making him comfortable and happy! The very best five stars'
After a very positive meet and greet, we did a one day trial -- Billie, our Havanese, was happy to go with Lidija, had a great day (you can see from the pictures) and came home in great shape. We have already booked an overnight for next week. Lidija is a delightful woman and it was a pleasure to trust her with our girl.
Lidija and Peter were wonderfully accommodating to our three senior citizens. They are caring and concerned and I am sure we will ask them to care for our three again!
Lidija is the best! She treats our Maggie like a member of her own furry family, making sure she is as happy and comfortable as possible. Lidija sends us pictures of their time together, and is excellent at communicating with us. Maggie gives her two paws up!
Lidija and her husband provided the best home-away-from home any dog could ask for! Tippy was pooped out from 3 days of non-stop play and slept the rest of the day away. Such an amazing experience Lidija provided not only for the dog, but also me as the owner and I have become leery of leaving Tippy at any of the kennel's here in town. I enjoyed looking at all the pictures and video's that she sent. Lidija will be my first choice from here on out. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you sooo much Lidija!!
This one went well
The perfect home away from home for your
The pictures were great
Lidija was amazing! Our little Dora was super tuckered out from all the walks she went on that I decided not to take her running the day after we picked her up! I wasn't so sure she wanted to come home with us as she had a plush new bed at Lidija's, got daily walks, had playtime with other dogs her size, and had someone with her pretty much 24/7! I am super grateful there's someone like Lidija in Reno that we knew we could trust. This was my first time ever leaving Dora with someone other than family and I know we'll be back after our awesome experience!!!
This is the second time our girls (Ruby and Opal) have stayed with Lidija, and we will continue to book with her every time we visit Reno! Lidija is professional and kind, and our girls are always happy when we drop them off for the weekend! Thank you for everything, Lidija! You're the best! :)
Lydia is very good in watching and taking care of your dog she treats every dog like her own.
Lidija is the best. Dillon enjoys his time, we get lots and lots of photos, and best of all he comes home tired.
Macleans stay with Lidija was 5 star!! From the drop off to pick up we felt Mac was safe and we loved the photos we received daily to help calm our worries. We will only use Lidija for Macs future needs. Mac came home happy and full of energy. We would highly recommend Lidija.
Lidija took excellent care of Lola!! She sent many pictures and kept Lola busy with many long walks!! She gets a star from me!!
Lidija is great! I could tell that my buddy was well taken care of. . . I would highly recommend Lidija to any of my friends and I certainly plan on using her again!!!
Lidija Is a GREAT PERSON, this is my second time she has watched my dog and there is no one more qualified than she Thank you Lidija
Another wonderful experience for both us and our pup. Lidija is easy to work with and our dog is the happiest.

Pocket had a great time at Lidija's, came home happy and tired! Lidija's house is well set up for a small pack of dog, Pocket even learned to use a doggy door for the first time. He looks forward to returning.
Lidija is amazing! We left our baby with her for a week and we came back to a very healthy happy and energetic little girl. Lidija sent us daily pictures of her morning walks and my puppy looked extremely happy! I recommend Lidija to any dog owner. Driving an hour away from our resort in Lake Tahoe was totally worth it. Thank you Lidija you made our vacation so much more enjoyable by knowing that our puppy was in good hands.
Lidiaja is a great person who loves dogs thanks for taking care of our dog Scooby
Lidija just took my dog for three weeks while I worked on an extended, intense contract project. There were so many times I'd think of my little dog, and get all worried—too hot in the car or too long in the office, too much time alone etc—and then I'd breathe a deep sigh of gratitude that no, in fact, he was with Lidijia having the time of his life!! My only real worry is when I go pick him up today the anticlimax of coming home. No little buddies to play with. No doggie door into the perfect gargen. No constant company and attention by Lidija, gift and angel to all small dogs. Lucky us!
Lidija is wonderful!
Sweet Pea had another nice stay with Lidija. She had a lot of fun and Lidija sent update texts and photos as always. Thanks again!
Lidija is a caring dog care giver. We like using her. We like it when we are on an extended trip, she sends photos of our dog. She has a good command of the dogs she cares for.
A lady that loves all dogs and takes care of them like they are her own.
Lidija is great about exercising our dog.
Another great visit. Great host. Will be leaving my dog with her for an entire week as a result of the clear care she gives.
Our little dog Ole had a great time at Lidija's home and we were so relaxed knowing that he was being well cared for - running around in the yard having fun. We'll be back!
I feel so blessed to have found Lidija! I have a long haired chihuahua who has separation anxiety and hates being left alone. He doesn't like strangers, and can be difficult to watch. He loves going to her house, and it puts my mind at ease knowing she is with him all the time. I love getting the emails and photos daily letting me know how he's doing and it's such a relief knowing Tucker's having a great time while I'm away. I can't recommend her enough!
As always, Lidija did a great job taking care of my pug, Thomas. I got regular updates and photos showing how he was doing while we were away. Thomas loves being with her and we love that we have someone we can trust and that loves Thomas like we do. Thanks again, Lidija!
Absolutely great environment to leave your pet. Lidija offers a home for your pet, not just a place to put them. Truly caring person that will meet all of your pet's needs. Would give her 10 stars if the ratings let me.
I've had Lidija watch Charlie 3 times from Sept 2014 to Nov 2014. Each time comes back happy, excercised, and well behaved. Lidija is my go to sitter in the Reno area.
Beau has stayed with Lidija four times now. When we arrive at her house, he runs to her door and whines to get in. He loves to play with Buster in the backyard and gets to go on long walks. We feel comfortable leaving our precious puppy with Lidija. He always comes home happy and content.
Caring, thoughtful and considerate. Takes a lot of pics to keep you informed. I will be using her services again. Thank you!
Sweet Pea stayed with Lidija for 10 days while we were on vacation. Lidija sent lots of photo updates and emails letting us know how Sweet Pea was doing. She took extra care of Sweet Pea, who is blind, by helping her get outside. We sent Sweet Pea's favorite rug and toy along at Lidija's request and that made her very comfortable. Sweet Pea seemed happy, calm and relaxed when we picked her up.
Wonderful experience that far surpassed my expectations. I've boarded my maltese with multiple providers and I think this time with Lidija was the easiest. Very flexible on pickup/drop-off times, my dog clearly enjoyed his stay, and when I went to pick him up, he was cuddled up with her and didn't want to leave. A++
Lidija is a dream come true, not just for me, but for my dog too. I just returned home from a 10-day trip and I know with perfect certainty that he was not only very well cared for, but LOVED spending time there. Lidija is not just considerate, aware and dog savvy—she's joyful and loves having these dogs with her! That energy pervades everything. Kippy got time to hang with buddies, explore their beautiful dog friendly garden, take plenty of walks and get loads of snuggling. If I tried to invent the perfect scenario for when I can't be there, it would be Lidija's. I'd choose her again in a heartbeat.
Lidija was an excellent dog sitter. My dog had special needs because he was in a cast for a broken foot, on antibiotics, plus he was born deaf. While he has a good temperament, he required a lot of care. Lidija gave him supervised breaks from his cone, massaged his injured leg, took him outside for fresh air and potty breaks and sent lots of pictures and updates, so I never had to worry if there was anything wrong. I highly recommend Lidija for your dog sitting needs!
Top notch 5 star care!
The reservation was easy with quick response from Lidija. This is our second stay with Lidjia and Walle had a great time. We were able to leave with peace of mind.
5 Stars without question! I have two miniature dachshunds who are literally my babies and Lidija took such amazing care of them! She gave my husband and I frequent picture updates and called often to update us on what our little angels had been up to for the day. I felt so much comfort knowing that they were doing better then okay and it made my vacation much more enjoyable! I recommend Lidija to all of my friends and will absolutely use her services whenever my pups need a loving care taker!

Leo had a great time with Lidija, fantastic daily walks and photos. This is really hands on care, far, far better than any other we have experienced and very reasonably priced. We highly recommend Lidija!
I can truly state that I think my pug has found his home away from home - Thomas has now stayed with Lidija and Peter twice and loved every minute of it. They are both amazing, love their pet guests like their own and are very attentive. I got regular updates and pictures while I was away - which gave me great peace of mind while I was on my own vacation. Thanks Lidija and Peter - you guys are awesome!!
Lidija and Peter were wonderful hosts for my "talking" schnauzer! They took the time to show us around her home and made sure he felt at home. I'm so relieved to have found a great home away from home! Thank you to both!!!
We were reticent about leaving our 7 month old puppy for two nights in a regular kennel. We are so glad we found Lidija on Dogvacay. Beau had two other dogs to play with in a nice fenced back yard. He came home happy and we were able to relax and have a good time knowing he was in good hands. Lidija sent us pictures and updates the whole time we were gone. Beau will be a regular boarder with Lidija.
She loves dogs and is always reliable going above and beyond taking care of my dog.
Lidija is simply amazing! Thomas had a great time - she kept me updated with pictures and little notes the entire week I was gone. My pug is truly my child - so knowing that he was being so well taken care of made my trip all the better. I will never use another dog sitter - Lidija is the only person I will use!!
A lady who cares about and loves dogs. Feel secure leaving my dog with her and don't have to worry.
Lidija was so wonderful with my puppy! I was so scared to leave her with anybody but I felt nothing but comfortable leaving here here. You can tell she genuinely cares about the dogs she has in her house and treats yours like her own. My pup is only 5 months old so she has a ton of energy, and she was one happy camper when she came home! Really nice experience.
Lidija is wonderful! Louie loves to be with her!
Wonderful lady who cares about dogs and does everything to please. Intend to leave my dog with her from now on.
Again, excellent care, as if my little miniature Dachshund were their own. Great people. So glad I found Lidija and her spouse, Peter. No worries while I am out of town, always confident that she is getting the best of care.
This is the best service I have ever come across. Lidija, Pete and Buster were very welcoming hosts when we got to their home.
Lidija sent me a text message with a pic of my little girl Coco Valentine while I was away. I felt very comfortable in the care they were providing.
Thank you Lidija, Thank you DogVacay!
This was my first visit. I can already say that Lidija is the best dog sitter my little female miniature Dachshund has ever had. So reassuring to know that she was in the best of hands while I was out of town. No worries whatsoever. It was great to know that she was considered part of the family and involved in all activities, and to know that her normal day-to-day routine was followed as closely as possible. Lidija (and her spouse) are special people. I highly recommend this dog sitter to anyone who requires peace of mind while being out of town and away from their canine.
Lidija is absolutely awesome. She's so sweet and takes great care of Calvin. This is Calvin's second time with Lidija and Buster. Lidija takes the time to understand his needs and behavior. During our dog's stay, she sent many cute photos and updates. When we picked up Calvin, we could tell he had a lot of fun. Thanks so much!!!
Lidija is the best! She took great care of Louie. Wonderful how she keeps me informed about how he is doing on a daily basis. Thank you!!! See you soon!
After many repeat visits, my dogs practically pull me through the door into their house! They have the BEST time and always enjoy their time there. Lidija and her husband treat our dogs like their own and they get plenty of love, grooming, and attention. I couldn't be happier we found this lovely family to watch over our children.
Thank you for everything!!
This is the second time we left our kids with Lidija; the first time was for three days. she was very caring so when we planned our vacation to Hawaii for nine days, I was happy Lidija was available. We had a great vacation because of Lidija and her Husband, Pete. Lidija and I talked on the phone several times
and the many pictures she sent us assured us that Shadow and Cheyenne were having the time of their life. Thank you both so much for sharing your home.

Robert, Shirley, Shadow and Cheyenne.
Lidija is above and beyond what I could have ever asked for. She is a wonderful and caring person and extremely reliable and trustworthy. Her and her husband are true dog lovers and I knew my dogs would be well cared for during my 9 day vacation. She is so much more than a dog sitter. She took the dogs on hikes, helped regulate their diet, and did a complete grooming of them. She even cleaned my pugs ears (something I haven't done in the 4 years of owning her)! I received tons of photos and could tell how happy they were which made my vacation that much more enjoyable. She has such a great heart and is a lovely person. I enjoyed seeing her during my pick up and drop offs! I changed plans more than once and she was beyond flexible and available. I look forward to taking my pug and puggle back to see her soon!!!! Thank you Lidija!
Lidija and Peter are simply PAWSOME!!! Ricky had the best time w/ them!! They are truly caring pet lovers...attentive to details, trustworthy, responsible and responsive! Will definitely use them again!Thanks alot!
Lidija was extremely welcoming, accomodating, and geniunely caring. I mistakingly listed the wrong dates for Louie's boarding, but she was able to take him anyway...thankfully! I will definitely use Lidija again!!
Lidija was great. She responded quickly to all our inquires pre-booking and during our pup's stay. Lidija kept us updated and sent many cute photos. We could tell our pup had a great time with his new buddies. Thanks so much to Lidija for taking excellent care of our lil Calvin!
This was our first experience using dog vacay, and we couldn't be happier with the results.
Lidija adopted our two shih-tzu's the moment she met them. She asked all the right questions regarding their care and comfort. Lidija sent us pictures every day. I knew the first time I met Lidija that she was the right person to take care of our kids.
When we left her home, we knew they would be well cared for. I would recommend Lidija to all my friends and family.
Thank you.

Shirley and Robert
