About Lisa

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
In the historic downtown area of
Wilmington, NC we offer a comfortable home for your friend. A park two blocks away and wonderful off street walking along the river await.
Every dog will be welcomed and have personal attention as a beloved guest.
As this is a small house we will be a "one dog only" space.
You can enjoy your time away knowing your furry pal will be happy and, as they will receive personal care, just a bit spoiled in our home.
We are a semi-retired couple who are fit and active so no couch potato days. Our home is fenced and alarmed for security. We have cared for all breeds and sizes over the many years of having dogs of our own. We have a relationship with a local veterinarian and know where 24-hour medical help is available. With photos taken as many times as you wish, you will see your dog throughout the day to assure your peace of mind.
Within walking distance, there are parks, water, even a fenced dog run. Depending on your dogs needs their day will be as busy or quiet as they demand. Care in grooming and keeping your dog comfortable for as long as they are with us is paramount. Personal space and personal attention for your pet in our home.
In the posted photos, you will see the inside and outside of our home, a few shots of the area and some of the dogs we have hosted.

Our pup, Huff, is family. I don't "board" him, but he now enjoys wonderful, pampered visits to Lisa and Wayne's. He's family at their house, too.
Our dog Luna stayed with Lisa and Wayne over New Years weekend. They couldn't have been any better with our girl. They treated her like a member of their family and she came back to us happy and healthy. She slept in their bed with them and Lisa even gave her a special New Years breakfast of homemade chicken and sweet potatoes! The next time we are in Wilmington we will definitely book with Lisa again. Thanks again!!
We are repeat Lisa & Wayne customers because they are great. They love dogs, they know how to handle dogs and their one-dog-at-a-time policy lets Lisa & Wayne provide lots of attention to our lab Riley. And they walk Riley several times a day to burn off some of that lab energy. This is Riley's home away from home.
From the 'meet and greet' through a variety of daycare appointments, our 12 lb miniature poodle has LOVED being with Lisa at her house. She is excited when she arrives, loves her walks, and is sometimes sound asleep when we go to pick her up--a level of relaxation we have never seen in other settings. Lisa 'knows' dogs and will take wonderful care of your pet!
Lisa & Wayne are great hosts. They take our lab Riley for multiple daily walks to parks and thru the neighborhood. They are socializing Riley to cats and are even working on Riley's leash walking skills. We get regular pix of our mutt lounging on the back porch and sprawled out on her bed. We love that Lisa & Wayne only take one dog at the time which, for us, is an important consideration. We are loyal, repeat L&W customers and we have already booked Riley's next dog vacay with them.
Lisa and Wayne were very friendly and responsible. Their house is perfectly set up for taking care of dogs and they clearly care about animals, which is the most important thing. We came back to a happy, healthy dog.
Excellent care - could not have dreamed of better for my girl. I received photos and updates daily- which were truly welcomed. Lisa and Wayne are clearly dog lovers. Their space is perfect. Saffron tried to go up to their door on our walk past their home today!
What more could any dog parent want? My only fear was that she wouldn't want to leave!!!!
My little old beagle, Cora, became devoted to Lisa and Wayne practically before I left the house when dropping her off. when I came to pick her up, she was happy to see me but more "how nice to see you" than "thank goodness"--just what you want to see when you leave your dog with someone else. I am completely confident that Cora will be happy and safe any time she stays there! And they were very tolerant of her 'beagleness' --clearly people who love and respect dogs. Great stay.
Lisa & Frank took great care of our pups. It's like they got a vacation too! I think it was a fun change of scenery for them to have a weekend staying downtown. Lisa sent a bunch of pics and updates that were very much appreciated. Will definitely book again!
Our pup, an older and somewhat anxious minature poodle, had a great stay with Lisa. We will definitely take her to Lisa again because Lisa provided a calm, safe place that put our girl at ease.
Lisa and Wayne were wonderful hosts for our elderly dog. We met in advance of our first vacay and I was impressed with their warmth, knowledge, and professionalism. They took great care of Susie while we were away and kept us updated each day. It was a great experience and I feel fortunate to have found them. Susie seemed very at ease. Thank you both for everything!
Lisa and Wayne kept Annie for 5 days over Christmas. They make her a very special part of the family. I always know she is well taken care of so I never have to worry about her a minute.
Lisa and Wayne are AWESOME! Our puppy, Shelbi, is still exhausted from all of their walks and play time. Lisa sent me numerous texts with pictures of Shelbi doing what Shelbi normally does and it made me feel really comfortable leaving our puppy in safe hands. I would recommend this location to anyone nervous about leaving their pup alone.
I almost don't want to post a review because selfishly I want Lisa all to myself. Annie, my Frenchie, was almost as happy to hug and kiss Lisa when I returned from my weekend. She and Wayne treat her better then we do at home. That IS the truth! Amy
Lisa was awesome! My French Bulldog Annie has never gotten so much attention! She was truly loved and pampered the entire time I was gone. Actually I'm leaving her with Lisa again next weekend.
