About Lisa

We live on a quiet street in northern Montgomery County and have just under 2 acres. Our property backs up to the east branch of the Perkiomen Creek and part of the yard is fenced with three mature trees for shade. We have raised four dogs from puppy stage through adulthood (3 in doggie heaven) over the past 20 years. We worked with a dog rescue for a few years helping an additional four dogs get forever homes. Currently, we have one dog (a 8 year old Lab mix) who has a very sweet and friendly personality. She gets along well with people and other dogs. Daily activities would vary by dog. We would treat them as if they were part of our family.

Little did I know that this would be my last time having Lisa and her family as sitters for Abby; we unfortunately had to put Abby to sleep on 02/29/16.I cannot give enough praise to Lisa, and her family, as DogVacay sitters, and pet lovers in general. They treated Abby wonderfully and I never had a moment's hesitation leaving her with them. Lisa always returned phone calls or emails promptly, and she was always willing to work with me on drop off and pick up times (though I am sure I tried her patience more than once!). I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa as a sitter, and I thank her for the loving care she gave to our Abby.
Another great experience with Lisa and family! We felt very comfortable leaving our pooch with them while traveling overseas. Lisa sent pictures (and even a video!) of Maggie relaxing and enjoying herself in their family's home. We're so thankful that we have a safe, friendly, home environment for our beloved pet while we're gone! Thanks, Lisa!!
(Lisa is also a great communicator for reservations and drop-off/pick-up!)
Great - as usual! I always feel safe leaving Abby with Lisa and her family. I also appreciate the fact that Abby returns home much better behaved than when she left!

I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa as a sitter, except for the fact that she may be too booked to watch Abby when I need her!
We were a little leery with leaving our beloved Maggie with a family and dog we didn't know, so we did a meet-and-greet, which went really well. Their dog, Silkie, is a sweetie and got along just fine with our Maggie! We felt totally comfortable leaving our pooch with Lisa and family. Maggie seemed to have a great time! We thoroughly enjoyed receiving pictures of her spending time in a home, instead of a kennel. We'll definitely use DogVacay and Lisa again!
After just a few minutes with Lisa, I knew Lucy would be well cared for. It was Lucy's first time away from home and family and after meeting Lisa and her family my concerns about leaving her disappeared. Lisa posted photos of Lucy during her stay which was a comfort to me. Lucy came home happy and I believe is missing Lisa and her family. I will, without reservation, recommend Lisa and Dog Vacay to everyone I know looking to find a safe home away from home for their pet.
So glad I found Lisa! Abby loves being there and seems to come home even more well behaved than usual. Lisa is always accommodating with my scheduling needs (and changes) and is quick to respond to any form of contact.
Lisa is the best,,,she is so accommodating and Jackson really enjoys her and the family.....Lisa is a pro...she really knows how to control the dogs so there is safety in her home.
Finleys stay at Lisa's was great! It was our first time leaving him for the weekend and she Made it a very easy transition sending us photos and updates. We will be going back again next time. Thanks Lisa!
Thank you, Lisa, for taking such good care of Herbie! We will see you again next weekend!
Lisa and her family have been wonderful with our Charlie. At our first meet-n-great, I knew right away that she was the best one for Charlie. She instilled confidence in her interactions with him and asked all the right questions about him too. Most importantly, she developed a bond with Charlie during his stay and it was easy to see that Charlie enjoyed his time there. We have used Lisa twice now, and Charlie was very happy to see Lisa at his second stay, and that to me was the best thing to see!
Lisa and her girls did a wonderful job caring for our two dogs Twix and Lexi while we were away!!!! We loved getting the photos and could tell they were happy and well taken care of and given lots of love!!! We will definitly use them again!!!!
Lisa is great! Herbie seems to love being there, and we will definitely continue to leave him with Lisa for daycare, overnight, and vacation stays.
Another great visit with Lisa and Silkie! Lisa is wonderful, and takes perfect care of Herbie. He loves it there!
Tiffany had never before been away from our home for so long. She was so well cared for by the family that she returned as her usual cheerful, healthy, head-strong self.
Another great day for Herbie with Lisa and Silkie! Lisa is great, and we are very happy to have found her.
Herbie seems to have enjoyed the day, and Lisa had positive things to tell us about the visit! We will definitely continue to leave Herbie with Lisa, and hope to establish a fairly regular schedule for daycare visits, as well as overnight stays!
As usual, rocky had a great time and came home tired and happy! Thank you to Lisa and family.
Excellent! Would highly recommend Lisa! My dogs loved it there! Thank you Lisa!
Great experience for my two dogs Jack & Lucky. Lisa sent me pictures every day and gave me updates. My dogs Jack & Lucky adjusted well and her home was so cozy, warm and welcoming. Her family loved my two dogs as if they were her own. Thank you! I highly recommend her. Woof!!
Abby is always well taken care of - and well loved - when staying with Lisa and her family. MUCH better than putting Abby in a kennel when we are away.
Our Golden Retriever Bailey spent 9 days with Lisa while our family was on vacation. Lisa was really great and made Bailey a part of her family. It was so nice not to have to put her in a kennel and worry about her.

Bailey played with Lisa's sweet dog Silkie and they got along very well.

Lisa sent me photo's everyday of Bailey along with updates so we were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that Bailey was in such wonderful hands.

It's so nice to know that we have a nice family for Bailey to stay with for future vacations.
I think my dog comes back better behaved when she comes home from a stay with Lisa!
Lisa is fabulous. Thank you for a last minute reservation for Jackson. He just loves you and your family.
Lisa is great - easy to communicate with, patient with our pup, just terrific!
Thanks again to Lisa for having Rocky - he went on a walk as soon as he got there and he had a great 2 days enjoying her family and her spacious yard.
Tiffany enjoyed spending time with the family.
Lisa always responds promptly and is open to working out convenient drop off and pick up times. Abby always seems to enjoy spending time with Lisa and her family!
Another great stay with Lisa!
Great place! So glad we found Lisa.
Lisa's place is great !! Large enclosed yard and her dog was very friendly to our Cooper. He was very well cared for and we will definitely use her again. She even posted a picture of Cooper to show us he was doing fine.
Lisa was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating with our scheduling needs. We will definitely contact her again when we need boarding for Abby.
Lever had a wonderful time with Lisa and her family. The second time we arrived at the house he became so excited to get out of the car to play! The fenced in yard is perfect for an active pup and Lever really enjoyed playing with Lisa's dog and the other puppy that was staying at the time.

My dog was very well taken care of with Lisa and this will definately be my first choice for doggy boarding when I go out of town. I felt so comfortable with Lever staying with Lisa I did not worry at all...and I knew he was having a great time as well!!

I also appreciated the pictures Lisa posted. I could see he was fine and having a great time.

Great place to board your dog!!
Chloe had so much fun, she didn't want to leave! She is passed out as I am typing this review, completely exhausted from all the play time with Silkie and Lisa's other doggy house guest. We will definitely trust Lisa and her family with Chloe any time we go out of town, knowing that Chloe will be taken care of like their own family dog.
Lisa and her family were awesome!! I loved getting my emails and pictures and Lisa had added a note which I loved!! My dog is crippled and I was very nervous leaving her with someone that she didn't know. After meeting Lisa I knew she was a good fit to care for my pug!! I couldn't be happier with my decision to choose Lisa!! My flight was delayed twice on the way home I called Lisa she was completely understanding, she said we can keep her another night. I will DEFINETLY be using Lisa again!!
Baby Chase and his friend Bijou had a great time while we were away ! It was a relief to go away and know they were treated like royalty ! Lots of love and playtime with their new friend silkie ! It was a vacation for everyone !!! Thanks to Lisa and her family ...can't wait to book again !
Rocky felt right at home in Lisa's home. He was treated like a member of the family and fit right in. The whole family welcomed him and he was very happy when I picked him up. We'll be using Lisa again!
Lisa was very nice and took care of our dog, Dayla very well. We will definitely use her again.
