About Lisa Dye

37 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
With five years of experience as a Durham County Animal Shelter volunteer, I am now a professional pet-sitter and am "owned" by four rescue dogs. Two of our dogs sleep in the bed with my husband and me and the other two sleep in "Dog World" (our air-conditioned and heated garage). We live on a quiet cul-de-sac in North Durham and have a large exercise pen in our backyard under the shade trees. There are three insulated dog houses in the exercise yard lined with fresh hay. I work out of my home as a Realtor. I may leave long enough to show a house or conduct an Open House, but would never leave your pet for more than a few hours. Our dogs are used to having a number of different animal visitors stay with us each week and they play well with others. I also have experience caring for cats, birds, fish; and pocket pets, including hamsters, guinea pigs, rodents and reptiles. PLEASE NOTE: NO DOGS OVER 40 POUNDS CAN BE ACCEPTED. PLEASE ALLOW ENOUGH TIME FOR AN INITIAL MEET & GREET BEFORE YOUR FIRST VACAY. THANK YOU.

This was mine and my dogs first DogVacay experience. I was VERY pleased. It was initiated very professionally and kindly during the meet and greet....And I was a little nervous because I didn't know how my dog was going to respond to me being gone and her with strangers. I got several pictures and updates throughout my vacation ..her playing with other dogs, etc. Lisa and her husband are very nice people, have lots of experience... and I am booked with her again in 2 wks!
This was my first time using DogVacay and boarding my dog anywhere. After reading through other profiles I believed Lisa would be the best fit for us. Even at the meet and greet Sammi had a great time right away. While we were gone she was on a good routine with other dogs and had plenty of play time. I was happy with everything and will use Lisa again in the future!
Ollie loved his stay! Lisa and Terry took good care of our dog.We definitely recommend!
Lisa and her husband were amazing hosts for our Pups! On top of that they are really great people as well. Lisa takes this business seriously and it shows.
This was my first time leaving my pup with someone she didn't know and in a place she'd never been to and I couldn't have been happier it was with Lisa and her gang! I can't thank Lisa enough for the security of knowing my dog was well taken care of and in a loving home. There home was well equipped for any dog to enjoy their stay.
Lisa and Terry were great and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great dogsitter and will use them again whenever we're back in Durham!
Lisa was great with Kimbo, he seamed to have enjoyed his stay! We will book with her again on our next vacation.
Lisa made me feel comfortable from the first meet and greet. She is soft spoken, patient, and does everything possible to make doggy parents feel confident that their pet will be given the best care and lots of love and attention. Our Dachshund, Bayly, felt right at home immediately. Lisa sent me pictures and videos of Bayly which afforded my husband and I additional comfort. Bayly and Lisa's husband became best buddies in only a short while. I will never leave my fur baby anywhere else!
Lisa was excellent.She kept us updated with Macy,our dog,while we were away and was able to adapt to her needs.Also was able to train her to go to her crate.We're grateful for Lisa for taking care of Macy.
Lisa took such wonderful care of our 5 month old puppy while we were away for Christmas. My husband and I loved getting her text updates with pictures! It was really comforting to know that our little one was in a house full of love. When we came back in town and brought her home, we could tell right away that she had matured and got some great socialization with other dogs. We also loved that Lisa took the pups to the Eno River one day! We would definitely recommend Lisa!
As always, Lisa was great. My dog enjoyed her stay.
Lisa was nice and had gone above and beyond with taking care of my dogs. I'm so grateful to her for her care over the holiday, and would recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for their fur babies!
Thanks to DogVacay we found Lisa. Lisa made a stressful moment no longer stressful. My husband and I had just moved to a new State and our dog care arrangements fell through days before we were to go out of town - what do you do??? Through DogVacay I connected with Lisa, scheduled a Meet and Greet in two days and two days later was able to go out of town knowing our dog was in good hands. We received updates and pictures of our dog which warmed our hearts. Our dog was certainly part of Lisa's home.
Buffy had another great week with Lisa! I don't think she wanted to come home :)
Ceci and Sophie love visiting!
When I brought Tommy to meet Lisa and her husband, Terry, a week before our trip, I knew immediately that I was in the right place. Lisa and Terry are clearly dog lovers and Tommy, a nervous boy by nature, bonded with them both immediately. I am always anxious about leaving him while I'm away but not this time. He was in great hands. Lisa sent me photos and updates while we were away and it was easy to see that Tommy was relaxed and having a ball! Big thanks to Lisa and Terry for the hospitality. We'll be back soon!
Another great stay! Noah spent a week with Lisa and her pooch crew and he enjoyed himself, yet again.
My Noah didn't realize he was a dog until he stayed with Lisa and pets. Noah had a ball and made lots of doggy friends! He had so much fun he's joining Lisa again in a few days.
We have had several good experiences with Lisa! She is always loving and caring for my pup but she is also very flexible and easy to work with. This last trip we took, our flight was cancelled and we ended up spending an extra night at the airport. Lisa was able to watch our dog for the extra night and made us feel very comfortable. I live over 30 minutes away from Lisa, but will make the drive any time I travel and need to leave my dog behind! I highly recommend her.
No words to explain. She is awesome!
Lisa kept my girl Buffy for 5 days while we were out of town. Buffy seems to have had a great time! Lisa kept us updated with pics of Buffy playing with her dogs and just hanging out. I know Buffy also got PLENTY of exercise - she keeps asking us to take her on more walks now that she's back home!

I am thrilled with my experience. This was my first time leaving my pup with someone and felt very reassured with the way Lisa kept track of all of Buffy's information - habits, needs, vet info, etc. Thanks!!!
Lisa kept my dog while I was out of town for the weekend. Once again, my dog was well cared for and I was updated on how she was doing. She gave my dog lots of love and was very flexible with her time by allowing me to drop off and pick up my dog at my convenience. Highly recommended. Lisa is awesome!!!
Lisa was wonderful for my two doxies! Both my 14 year old and 7 year old dachschunds did very well over our two week vacation. They both came home very calm and rested! I am so grateful to have found Lisa and will definetly request time again for our next holiday weekend away :) Thank you Lisa!
I believe Lisa was great. Also Kyro loved her as well. Kyro felt right at home even with her other dogs. I believe she even spoiled him a little. He loved it there. I would recommend Ms. Lisa as the one. She is awesome.
Lisa does a great job watching my dog! She is very thorough and reliable. My dog is excited to go to Lisa's house. I love that she sends us pictures too!
Lisa Jane was great with our 7 month old labradoodle. This was the first time we've left her while on vacation and we were apprehensive at first. Lisa asked great questions during the interview that really made us feel safe leaving our furry member of the family with her. Lisa provided her with lots of simulation and dog pals for her to play with. It truly was a great vacation for our dog as well as us. We particularly liked receiving pictures and comments on what our dog was up to while we were away.
Lisa(&Terry) you are the BEST! My two dachshunds love visiting you both. I do not worry at all when you have them in your care. You make them feel part of your family the minute they come into your home. Thank you!
Loved the photos Lisa sent. She played lots of frisbee with Poe who came back a happy pup. Relieved I could travel knowing she was well cared for.
Next time I leave town I will leave Rudy with Lisa. She knew he was little afraid and spent time with him letting hime site on her lap. I also think he enjoyed the company of her dogs.
Pippin had such a great time at Lisa's, and Lisa was so kind and gracious to our family and flexible with our schedule. Great experience!
Wow! I wish that I would have known about DogVacay and Lisa years ago! My daycare experience was "pawsome!" My dogs got along well with Lisa's dogs during the meet-n-greet. Lisa is very knowledgeable about dogs and went the extra mile to ensure that I, along with my dogs, were satisfied! My Yorkipoo has separation anxiety. When I arrived to pick them up, my Yorkipoo was calm, smiling (yes, she smiles), and playing with a toy! My Cockapoo was also very happy! I plan to only use DogVacay, and Lisa, for all of my boarding and daycare needs! I felt 100% comfortable leaving my dogs in Lisa's care. Thank you Lisa!
Lisa is fabulous! She's prompt and professional and most of all loves what she does! She knows how to work with dogs of all types and I truly felt comfortable leaving my dog Raja with her. I'd absolutely use her services again!
Lisa took great care of my little Havanese - Mia. She has a great home and friends for Mia to play with. I highly recommend her for your next trip away.
Penny loves to stay at Lisa's! She absolutely pulls on the leash to get in the front door--
This family is totally awesome (humans as well as canines)! Flexible, thoughtful, and definitely animal loving! They went the extra mile to make sure that my puppy and I felt comfortable in the vacay. My dog came back happy, and was in no rush to leave their house. Very good sign.
Lisa is a wonderful host for your dog! She took good care of my special needs dog. I received pictures of my dog and a text when a question came up about her health. I will definitely call Lisa again!
Lisa and her family are AMAZING!!! and that is truly an understatement how much fun my Mr. Bentley had with them. During the meet and greet Lisa made me feel so reassured that my dachshund would be well cared for. She made Bentley feel like part of her family. She kept me updated with pics! Lisa has become part of our family! See you again Lisa :) Thank you!
Finley and Charlotte had another great stay in Lisa's excellent care. Many thanks!
Lisa and Terry must be the most dog friendly people I ever met! Our beagle Marley was welcomed into their pack and had a great time! Lisa was very diligent in getting all the information about Marley's habits and routines upfront and kept us up to date with photos and notes throughout the week! I couldn't wish for a more perfect place for our dog!
Our Roxy is not used to being left with strangers but she took to Lisa and her dog family right away. We had no problems with an earlier than scheduled pickup. Lisa is the consummate professional and truly loves what she does.
It was great, as always. Lisa took great care of my dog and gave me a report of her day. My dog had such a blast that she didn't wanna leave her front porch. I'm very pleased!
Lisa is awesome!!!!! She keeps my little yorkie mix for me for daycare while I work. She is very nice and has such a warm personality. She has a lovely home and it's very neat. My dog loves staying with her and she makes every effort to give her the best care and feed her on schedule. She sends me a text message and pic of my dog to give me an update. I feel so comfortable with her caring for my dog. I highly recommend her.
Lisa is terrific. She is attentive, thoughtful, skilled, and loving. My dog came home happy -- and a bit tired from playing so much. A most happy result!
Finley had another great visit! Can't recommend highly enough - lots of love and attention from Lisa and husband Terry plus playtime with the resident pooches!!
Highly recommend! Wonderful lady who knows her dogs, has years of experience, and knew just how to introduce my little one into the pack without issue.

I had no reservations leaving my morkie, Betsie Grace, with Lisa. I also met her husband at the end of the day and they are the most down to earth and lovely people you could meet.

You'll feel like you've known them longer somehow....very homey and good feeling and her dogs are sweet. .
Baylie had a great weekend with Lisa! Lisa kept me updated on how Bailey was doing (along with pictures), and I never worried the whole weekend. Another plus, Bailey seems absolutely exhausted like she was playing nonstop. Anytime she isn't bouncing off the walls is a good sign that she had lots of activity and was definitely kept occupied.
Our energetic pup Finley had a great time staying with Lisa and her husband Terry and their dogs over the weekend. Fin enjoyed lots of attention and play time. They love dogs and are very conscientiousness. Thank you Lisa!
Lisa is awesome! Penny Lane had a great stay and I loved all the pictures I got of her.
I left my two mini poodles with Lisa for a week. During the meet and greet she was careful to write everything down, asked who our vet was, and was generally very thorough and that made me feel good about leaving them for so long. When we returned the boys looked happy and healthy. And while they were, of course, happy to see us, they were still trying to play fetch with Lisa and giving her kisses. I could tell they felt safe there and I would definitely feel comfortable leaving them there again.
Lisa and her family have watched my dog Kenzie three times in the last few months, and each time has been a great experience! Lisa is very responsive with respect to booking and is really good about checking in with me. And Kenzie is always happy and healthy when I pick her up. This is a MUCH better option than a kennel...for both of us!
I had never left my dog with anyone or boarded her so I was really nervous to have someone watch her for a couple days. After meeting Lisa, I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her. Not only was I reassured that she was in very good hands, but I was happy to leave her to socialize with other dogs. Thank you again Lisa!
Lisa and her husband were very nice. My dog loved them and their dogs as well. She sent me some pictures of my dog while we were gone to let me know how he was doing. She was very frexible to my travel plan. I will use her service again!
excellent service and communication
very professional...made my vacation so much better knowing that my dog was being well taken care of.
This was our first experience using dogvacay and we were nervous about leaving our dog with someone we didn't know. Having our dog stay with Lisa and her family was such a relief! Our pup was treated like a member of the family and got along great with her dogs. That meet and greet we did ahead of time was very helpful to make sure that we, including our dog, would be comfortable and feel safe there. We got picture updates during our trip which also helped put our minds at ease. Great place for your dog if you're going on vacation where he/she will get lots of love and attention!
Lisa was very nice to accept my reservation last minute. She and her husband were loving to my dog, and their fellow animals welcomed him into the pack right away. Highly recommended! Thanks Lisa :)
Lisa was so pleasant to work with and our two dogs had a great time with her dogs in their very dog-friendly home!
