About Lillian

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to our hobby farm in Carlisle which is just on the north west border of Burlington! ( or just north of Waterdown) Our country setting just outside the city!

We are a family of four ( my husband and I, and two teenage daughters) who love animals of all kinds and would love to have your pet join us for his/her vacation.

We have been fostering animals for the humane society for over 15 years and have cared for family and friends pets for over 20. Over that time we have looked after dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs and sugar gliders. We have cared for pregnant cats, dogs and cats recovering from surgery, nervous animals that need socialization and elderly animals needing some extra TLC.

Currently we have two family dogs, Molly a ShepX and Teddy a chihuahua/pomeranian. Both are fun loving and enjoy all of our furry visitors.

We also have horses, potbelly pigs, goats, rabbits and chickens.

We have a large fenced in area that is next to a beautiful creek for the dogs to run and play Daily we walk down to the creek and waterfall and the dogs enjoy exploring. In the evenings we take the dogs out to the horse paddocks to run and explore. Our property is surrounded by woods and a creek and is a great place for the dogs to run and play.

Cuddling on the couch is a favourite of our furry visitors after a romp outside in the fresh air. Your dog will have the run of our house and is welcome to cuddle up wherever they would like. They can sleep wherever they are used to at home even it its a bed with one of us or their own bed. They will be a family guest in our home.

We look forward to opening up our home to you and your furry friend.

Please note the rate is per night-if you pick your pup up after 12 pm you will be charged the day rate for that day.

A surcharge might be added for puppies, larger dogs, dogs with behavioral issues and dogs with medical issues. There is also a surcharge for dogs who are fed a raw diet.

If your dog is aggressive towards other dogs or people we will not be able board them.

Please message us if you have any further questions. We look forward to hearing from you!

Lillian is superb as a pet sitter. She is kind and loving with a solid foundation of dog knowledge built on many years of experience. She expertly reads dog body language and behaviours and is able to help your dog feel comfortable and safe without you there. She treats your pet like it is her own while it is in her care and her love for all things furry and feathered shines through in her mannerisms and attitudes. Knowing my dog was being cared for by Lillian and her family meant that I was able to enjoy my time away from my pet with worrying. I knew she was loved and cared for. I would highly recommend Lillian and DogVacay as your pet sitting choice.

Lillian and her family are the perfect pet sitters to leave your pet with. She is attentive and caring. She treats your pet as though it is her own. I know when I leave my dog with her that he will be treated with lots of love, cuddles and affection. I wouldn't think of leaving my dog with anyone else.

Best place to park the pups ever! I think my fur babies got more attention at Lillian's than they get at home. It was so nice to know they were being treated as family by people who clearly love dogs.
Lillian was able to take Bear (dog) on a last minute notice and was so enthusiastic about spending the weekend with him. She not only did she show me what Bear would be looking forward to but, kept me in the loop about all the fun he was having with pictures. Bear spent the weekend with other furry friends and I felt completely comfortable leaving Bear under Lillian's expertise and loving family. He came back home so tired and satisfied so I know he had a great time chasing other dogs. Lillian and her family treated Bear as if he were their very own dog. She spoke so kindly of Bear and has requested to spend time with him again. I recommend Lillian to any dog owner who wants the best for their dog.
This was our first time leaving our one year old black lab Ruby with anyone other than family and we were very nervous. From the first message to the end of our vacation, Lillian made us feel very comfortable and eased any of our nerves. The daily pictures and texts were greatly appreciated. Ruby loved playing with the other dogs and was exhausted from her busy vacation. Ruby will miss her bff Molly. We highly recommend Lillian and will use her again in the future.
