About Liz

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Free-range dog run, daily walks and playmates! Gaston and Buddy have been brothers since they were six months old and are now both 7 years old. My husband, David, and I both work from home and make sure our dogs get separate walk and snuggle times just like your dog will have with us. We love being able to enjoy moments with your dog throughout the day that we can share with you. Our dogs love their own activities and we look forward to having your dog stay with us and understanding their personality!

My husband David loves to run with energetic dogs that come to stay with us and it often builds a form of trust and respect. Additionally, we have worked with a lot of dogs who have different anxieties and social disorders and puppies for potty-training during longer stays.

Holiday Note: we have enjoyed dogs staying with us throughout the holidays and will have a different day/overnight rate apply if we are able to accommodate your dog's stay.

Very great experience with Liz and David. Kupkake went for a meet and greet before the vacay and Kupkake was very comfortable with the hoSt, their dogs, and their home. Received pictures and videos throughout her vacay and they even helped us with crate training which Kupkake was not good with. We were reluctant at 1st to leave a puppy with 2 bigger dogs, however their dogs are very friendly with other dogs.I would definetly use their service again and would also highly recommend other dog owners to use their service?

Very patient, flexible and understanding. They took very good care of Chester. Thank you
Liz and Dave were great! It was our first time using Dog Vacay, and the wonderful previous reviews helped me to select Liz and Dave. Our Buddy was well taken care of during our week-long vacation. We loved getting daily updates and photos of our boy having fun and enjoying his time with other dogs. It certainly put our minds at ease while we were away. Thank you to Liz and Dave for providing care and love to our Buddy.

Liz & Dave helped us to take care of our furry family Pali on Sunday, although this was our first time to choose a personal dog daycare, I definitely highly recommended Liz & Dave.
When we arrived Liz's home, Dave took Pali out for a small walk and made him calm down before let him in. Then Liz & Dave introduced us their dogs (buddy, and another one boy & one girl) and showed us the places for dogs, and of course, answered our each question.
After we left, Liz updated me about Pali through 'DogVacay'. Since Pali is an over energetic boy, Dave took him out for a good running to sent his energy out, which we very appreciated.
We picked up Pali at night, he got tired after a whole day playing, we believed he had a wonderful day~
We are very impressed with Liz & Dave's skills of training dogs, and their loves towards them, again, I highly recommended Liz & Dave for everyone looking for a boarding/ daycare, and we will choose them again.

Liz & Dave were great sitters for my 10 mo Basset Hound, Darwin. I had to book a last min stay due to family emergency, and they were quite accommodating. They had extras of many dog things at their house already, so all I brought were his food and bed. I sat with my dog for 15 minutes before I left him to see him adjusting to the place, and they seemed experienced with dogs. Darwin can be a handful sometimes since he is still a puppy and quite strong, but they made me feel like he was in good hands, especially since they are a pair of sitters and I know that one of them is a guy who is able to control a larger dog and be strict with him. He has had accidents at other sitters, but not with them – I think they took him out often. When Darwin came back, he seemed to be in good spirits yet rather tired, so I know that he got plenty of exercise. They have a fenced in yard, friendly dogs to be playmates, and they also take the dogs for walks around the lake. Liz sent me photos and a video during his overnight so I could see what he was up to. I really appreciate these sitters and would happily use them again – highly recommended.

We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing our 5 dogs were well taken care for. We will use the service again. Thanks Liz & David!
I left my two dogs, Chelsea and Cody, with Liz and Dave over the holiday weekend. It was their very first time boarding so I was very anxious about leaving them in a new environment with strangers. Liz and Dave were great and fully prepared to care for my dogs. They are true dog lovers. My worry was relieved by receiving 9 photo updates with comments from Liz over the long weekend. Dave was understanding to take my high energy dog on long runs with him. They take the time to examine each dogs personality traits and habits. I highly recommend Liz and Dave for all your pet sitting needs. Chelsea and Cody had a great time socializing with the other dogs and will definitely return.

Thanks to David and Liz for taking care of my puppy.
Our English Bulldog, Lola, had a great time with Liz and David. They were very understanding of her unique quirks and needs. When we picked Lola up, she was in great spirits and seemed to have made some awesome puppy friends. No complaints here!
Liz and David are great hosts and Luca was well taken care of on his short-notice visit. They were very accommodating last minute and treated Luca like a regular visitor with them. Highly recommend Liz and David!
Liz took our 2 dogs on a days notice for a week! We are so grateful they were able to take care of Munson and Matti when our other sitter fell through. They we great with the dogs! I got daily pictures to see what my babies were doing which helped ease my nerves, this was the first time we have left them.
I'm so happy we came across Liz! I would definitely use them again:)

What a relief! After the kennel we've used before was full, I looked for other options and found Liz and David's page. At the meet and greet, David bonded with Scout immediately and his expertise with Pit Bulls was clear. Still nervous about leaving our dog in a new situation for the first time, I was relieved to receive numerous pictures and updates during Scout's stay. David treated Scout to long runs and hikes and Scout loved them! Still anxious to return home to my pup, I was completely satisfied when I went to pick him up and he was so happy. Even though Scout was overjoyed to see us, he was still affectionate with David and Liz. You can rest assured leaving your dog with this wonderful couple. They will be well-cared for. Thank you to Liz and David for the peace of mind that if I ever need to leave my pet again, I have someone reliable and competent to turn to.

Liz and David could not have been a better host to our dogs while we were away. Any thoughts of doubts were quickly replaced with confidence and trust from the first moment of our meet and greet.

They are truly animal lovers, and the way they've cared for my two dogs is above and beyond anything I could've hoped for. I never had any worries while on vacation because of the daily photo updates. Any messages I sent is quickly replied by Liz and David as well.

We are truly grateful to have found these loving and caring hosts to look after our pups and would definitely use them again and recommend their services to anyone.

Liz and Dave are very caring Pet owners. I was a little scared to leave my dog for the first time but after receiving photo updates I was totally at ease and when I picked her up I was happy that she was well taken care of. I definitely recommend using them for dog sitting

Liz and David saved us in a last minute pinch! And they did so with such compassion and care. This was our first time boarding Tiberius, and they eased any anxiety felt by me or Tiberius! Plus, Tiberius had the best time with Gaston and Buddy. He came home a little bit older and wiser, more confident for his time away in such a loving and supportive environment. Plus, Liz and David stayed in touch and sent wonderful pictures and fun stories while we were away. We'll definitely rebook and I'll recommend Liz and David to anyone in need!

Liz and her husband were awesome! This was our dog's first stay with them and I would certainly bring him again. They were very flexible, hosted at the last minute and took very good care of him! We got daily pics and updates so felt very comfortable while we were away. Couldn't have had a better experience!

Morgan loves going to stay with Liz. He has been there twice and will be going back. When we arrive at the house Morgan totally forgets he has actual parents and rushes right in.
Liz and her husband Dave were absolutely wonderful to work with! We left Lucas there for a week and didn't know what to expect since it was his first time away from home, but they accommodated him wonderfully. We were glad to see that he got along with the other dogs there and it was great that they were able to give us picture updates throughout the week to see how Lucas was doing! (Buddy and Gaston were both super friendly as well!) Overall, we're super happy to have left Lucas in such capable hands and we will definitely recommend her as a sitter!

I give Liz a 5-star rating because you could tell her dogs were happy and she greeted me and my dog with a great attitude. Unfortunately, my dog couldn't stay with Liz due to the different personalities of the dogs, but Liz is not at fault for that. I appreciate that she did not take advantage and try to convince me to leave my pup there--it shows she cares about the well-being and the enjoyment of the stay instead of just trying to make money.
I would recommend her, for sure. The yard is big and her dogs are friendly.

We have never needed to leave Cleo with a stranger when we went away. But we had to recently and I have to say that we were extremely pleased and at ease. Liz is wonderful and she make us feel that she treated Cleo as family. Now we use her every time

Liz was very accommodating and flexible with us for drop off and pick up times. She sent us lots of pictures so we knew our pups were doing well. Her dog, Gaston, was very friendly as well! I would recommend her if you need a new sitter!
We have used Liz several times and I couldn't have asked for a better sitter.? We have always had a family member watch Cleo and felt safe. Well Liz is our family. I wouldn't leave her with any one else. She treats Cleo like she is her own, and her pets and Cleo get along great. They go on walks and she just gives so much time and attention to them. She sends pictures and that is comforting when your away. She's the best.

Very satisfied. My dogs were very well cared for and seemed happy when I returned to pick them up. 5 stars
This was our first time leaving our dog with someone she didn't know. I was a little nervous but I have to say I couldn't have been more pleased. She took very good care of our dog and that made us feel at ease and we were able to enjoy our trip
