About Lisa J

26 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love all animals and I have a very special relationship with them. I've had pets in my life since the day I was born. I can't imagine a day without their love and affection. I currently have only cats which allows me the flexibility to care for cats and dogs in their home or mine. My home is warm and peaceful and there will be lots of playtime, brushing, long walks, belly rubs and lying by the fire on rainy days. I have a patio which is pet secure and lots of puppy pillows for maximum comfort while sleeping or just sun bathing during the day. When I have a clients dog in my home they are my primary concern and get lots of attention. I will accept up to 3 dogs at a time but am happy to give your dog extra special one on one attention for a small added daily fee providing I have no other bookings at the time of your request. I have dog friendly cats in my home so your dog can get acclimated to the feline species. A free service many of my clients really appreciate. I will honor your crating instructions should you have any and have a large crate and cushion for your convenience. That said your dog is welcome to sleep with me, as many do :-). So give me a call and lets discuss when your dog(s) will begin their vacation.

Lisa was so kind and loving with our dog. She went out of her way to make him feel happy and welcomed in her home!
My dog Trekkie stayed with Lisa over the fourth of July week. We first did a meet-and-greet, and Trekkie immediately warmed up to Lisa's attention. I could tell that she was a pet lover (she also has a couple of cats and another dog that stays with her), and this was exactly what I was looking for my buddy. Throughout his stay, I would get pictures sent to my phone of the activities he was involved in. She also kept me informed of his health, as I had just switched dog food, and was having a little problem adjusting, so she took the time to help him adjust by trying another dog food, as well as mixing in some soup into his food, and he was soon eating well again, and not having any issues! Overall, Trekkie enjoyed his stay, was spoiled, and came home happy... I would definitely use Lisa again! Thanks!

Lisa is the perfect doggy host. Our Coco is a 6 month old puppy and Lisa looked after her brilliantly. This was the first time Coco had been looked after outside of our home and Lisa made her very welcome and worked very hard to keep her in her usual routine. Coco was a very happy doggie when I picked her up! I would recommend you contact Lisa as she is a great doggie host that your dog will love!

This was our Coco's first night away and Lisa was very sweet and patient with her. Lisa took extra special care and helped Coco adjust to her new surroundings and to get into routine. Coco was very happy!
We are so grateful to Lisa for the excellent care she gave our pup Frankie! Lisa responded immediately to our request for a pet sitter and was warm and welcoming. We were confident that Frankie would have a loving and attentive caretaker while we were away. Lisa went above and beyond our expectations, sending daily texts and photos to reassure us that our pet was having a wonderful time, and Frankie returned home a happy pup!!!

My dogs give two furry paws up for Lisa!

I'm a very overprotective, worried mommy when it comes to my babies. I live in a new town and was very nervous about leaving my girls for 5 nights. I wanted to find someone to stay here at MY place with them, so they wouldn't be in unfamiliar surroundings.

Lisa understood and was way more than accommodating. She went above and beyond, coming over TWICE to get to know my dogs, and to get them used to her, and then she even came over BEFORE I walked out the door for my trip so I wouldn't have to wonder if the transition from mommy to aunt Lisa went smoothly.

While I was out of town, she was in constant contact with pictures and updates. I was able to enjoy my time away with no worries at all. I will absoultely use her puppy sitting services again and would recommend her without reservation to anyone who suffers from puppy separation anxiety like I do!

Thank you for everything! I was so happy to see how comfortable Walter was
Lisa was absolutely incredible.

We had never left our dog alone with anyone before other than the vet, but we had scheduled a cruise and could not take our puppy with us so we went to DogVacay to find someone local to care for her while we were away.

We were terrified of leaving our puppy alone, especially with a complete stranger! In order to make us feel more comfortable we had a meet a greet with Lisa that ended up lasting a couple of hours because we got along so much with her. She's VERY friendly!

Needless to say we left her with Lisa from a Sunday through the following Thursday and everything went wonderfully well. Our dog is pretty hyper, and Lisa was able to keep her happy, satisfied, and calm, and we received regular updates and photos throughout our trip.

We would not hesitate at all to use Lisa again in the future when we take a trip.

(P.S. Thank you Lisa! Loopy sends kisses!)

Our beagle Emma apparently wanted to make herself understood that she did not like us leaving her for our trip. But Lisa was a trooper and took it all in stride. Very grateful to her for that. She was patient with Emma and her her come around on her own sweet time. All things worked out for the best in the long run. We were so glad to have Lisa take care of Emma and will seek her help again in the future !
Thanks Lisa !

OMG! Lisa is the best! She took our 2 pups on very short notice over Thanksgiving. Then....she sent pics of the puppy girls throughout their vacay stay. She is kind and loving! We will certainly be using her again! XOXOXO
We invited Lisa to our home for a meet and greet and she was there for two hours because we just talked and talked and talked! She got down on the floor and played with our dogs and even brought them treats. She had a wonderful book full of pictures of her "adopted dogs" that she has cared for over the many years she has been doing this. We knew we had found someone who would care for and love our dogs the way we do. Lisa arrived on time for our early departure and we went over everything. She updated us regularly with texts, emails and pictures of our precious pups. Our house was left very nice and neat with a lovely letter of info about her stay with our dogs. She had already mentioned some things like where she was putting our mail and newspapers but reminded us of everything in the letter. She loves animals and seems to really enjoy her work. She is very kind and knowledgeable. She even picked up the poop in the back yard! She cares for them usually at her house, but we asked her to stay at ours which she was happy to do.

Extremely flexable and caring. Our dog had specific medicine instructions and Lisa was happy to accommodate. Lisa kept us updated on our dog's activity so we never worried.
Lisa was GREAT with our pup Polo. He seemed more sad to leave than when we left him! Thank you Lisa for keeping us informed throughout our trip and for all the pictures! you made it less hard for us to be apart from him. :)
Lisa was great to deal with and a wonderful host for our dog. She is a caring and knowledgable dog-sitter - we couldn't be more pleased.
Lisa was very flexible with our arrangements, allowing us to change plans the very week of our trip. Our 5 month old Samoyed puppy turned out to have a bit too much energy, but Lisa remained positive even when he kept her up half the night with puppy mischief! Thanks, Lisa!

Lisa was really great with my Lab! He stayed with her for a week- and she sent me pictures everyday to let me know he was ok.

We felt extremely comfortable with Lisa when we first met her. She was kind and truly showed that she loves animals. it was great to know our pup was being taken care of so well.

We will bring our dog here again!

Zoe let me know that her vacation with Lisa was great! I could tell she was quite content when I picked her up. Also, my interaction with Lisa was everything I could want from a trusted dog sitter. Thanks so much Lisa. Zoe will be seeing you again.
Lisa is great......At least, thats what my dog told me!! I have a picky pooch who is very bonded to his family. Generally he treats strangers with disdain and just occasionally with outright suspicion. So we were amazed (and relieved) when Rocket met Lisa for the first time and immediately treated her like she was an old friend. He seemed completely comfortable in her house and we had no trouble leaving him there. It was such a relief. We were able to relax and enjoy our trip knowing that he was totally safe, happy and being well cared for.

Lisa has a gift with animals and if you have a dog who is OK with cats (Lisa has 4) then I wholeheartedly recommend her as a sitter for your four legged friend!!
