About Lisa G.:

Your dog won't know you're gone!

I'm Lisa, 25, and I've spent my whole life around animals. Growing up, my family adopted/cared for nine different dogs (but not all at once, though that would've been awesome), as well as a couple birds, a hamster, LOTS of fish, and one cat. Dogs really are extended family and I give them plenty of love and affection and energy. Every dog is different and you know yours better than anyone; I will give careful attention to any and all special requests you have and will make sure your dog is comfortable, happy, and safe.

I work at an office during the day, but am free to stay with or check up on your precious pup as often and as long as needed. I'm the perfect option if you're going to be traveling for any length of time, and while my landlady doesn't allow dogs, I would be more than happy to house your cat, bird, hamster, rat, rabbit or plant for as long as you need.

I enjoy taking walks and entertaining energetic dogs, and am incredibly patient with cats who aren't accustomed to strangers.

Please don't hesitate to send any and all questions my way. I look forward to hearing from you!

Lisa G.'s Experience:

I have done pet-sitting for a number of friends in Illinois while I was growing up; the most recent before I left for college was for a family with two dogs (one was a lively six-month-old great dane) and three cats. I spent the first year after college living in the Quad Cities with a college friend and her cat, Bo, and we got along incredibly well, I miss him to pieces.

I live in St. Louis now, and up until a month or so ago, I was living with 2 roommates and their year old boxer who is fond of jumping, cuddling, and running into everything. Before moving to Princeton Heights, I did on one occasion house Buddy, a spunky little West Highland Terrier, for a close friend. I get to visit him often, so we're still close :) And I currently pet-sit for a lovely couple downtown who's travels take them away from their adorable Vizsla, Sansom from time to time.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

Our first dog was a black lab named Toby, but as we lived in Tower Grove, he didn't have a lot of room, so we gave him to our cousins in Illinois. We briefly had a siberian husky named Max, but he was too much of a handful for mom and was given away as well. But once we moved into Illinois in 2000, we adopted Becca and Penny and took two puppies from a litter our neighbor had. After all but one of the two puppies passed away a number of years later, we adopted an old golden retriever (Buddy) and an old, grizzly black lab (Tigger.) Buddy recently passed away, but we still have Tigger. I try to spend time with him when I get the chance to visit my old home, and sometimes we take brief walks if he's feeling up to it.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

I like to know if a dog is nippy, just so I know what to expect come play time. I'm okay with the nips if I'm prepared :) And if your dog is a yapper, I would love to get any and all tricks you use with him or her to get her to calm down. I know every dog is different when it comes to that sort of thing.

I don't have any breed preferences. Maybe the bigger the better ;) But I love them all!

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes - I have a car with a roomy backseat, plenty of room for a kennel or for the dog to lie down and be strapped in, if need be.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes.

Are you willing to do additional tasks at my home while I'm away
(e.g., water plants, bring in the mail)?

Of course!

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

As much time is needed, I am perfectly happy spending an hour or more at a time walking or playing with your dog.

This is our second time having Lisa watch our pups. I think we're having out third time coming up next month. Do you see a trend here? :)

We have 2 dachshunds that need to be carried up and down 3 flights of stairs. Lisa had no problem with this task and we are definitely happy with her service! We have at least 3 more weekend trips planned this summer and will definitely be working with her again! Thanks, Lisa :)

Lisa stayed with our zoo while we were out of the country. We returned to find very happy , healthy animals and a clean house (no minor thing when you have 4 shedding animals). She even took care and cleaned up after our 7 chickens. I don't doubt there is anything Lisa won't do for you! Thanks Lisa, you're our go-to girl!
