About this sitter:
I am a L.V.T with 16 plus experience. I have my own petsitting business.

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

I have been an animal lover since the day I was born . I knew when I was 6 years old that I wanted to work in the veterinary field and thruout my life have owned and loved dogs,cats,rabbits,hamsters,iguanas,birds,fish,and have also raised and rehabilitated wildlfe such as birds,baby ducks,squirrels and rabbits. I have been working in the animal field since I was 16 as a kennel person and have worked in shelters, small animal clinics, emergency centers, and specialty centers.

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

I do not have a breed preference at all. I want to know if your pet is housebroken,gets along with children and other dogs. If they are up to date on vaccines and flea and tick free. If they have seperation anxiety or fear of thunderstorms. If they will jump or escape my back yard. if they like walks? special toys? where do they prefer to sleep at night ? if they smile? (some dogs smile and other people take as they are growling ) are they on any medications? are they on any special foods? Do they have food allergies or allergic to anything ?

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

yes I do -I also work at an emergency hospital and have friends who are veterinarians who I can contact in case of an emergency .

Are you comfortable administering medication?

yes-oral, topical, eye and ear meds, SQ fluids and insulin injections as well

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

They are boarding at my home so they will be a part of my family so alot of time will be towards them . if you want me to come to your home it depends on how many times a day you would like me to come over but every visit I spend 30-45 minutes with them.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

I have a large fenced in backyard which they have the entire back yard to run and play in

Where will my dog sleep?

they will have full run of my downstairs which would be my living room , dining room and kitchen .

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

I live in a quiet neighborhood not much traffic so the side streets . I would walk them for 20-30 minutes each time .

We had an excellent experience with Lisa and recommend her highly. The logistical arrangements were smooth and easy. Lisa was very friendly and professional. Our dog was comfortable and content with Lisa and we would re-book with her if we are in her area again.

I recently left Lola with Lisa and her family and Coachie (Lisa's dog). Lola was like one of the family. She ate well and overall did fine. She had a wonderful time playing in the yard and with other dogs. I especially enjoyed the texts and photo that Lisa sent me...really put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend Lisa and I will definitely leave Lola there again. Elizabeth S.

My dog stayed with Lisa for 5 nights. I could tell when I picked him up that he had a great time. He was happy and relaxed - not stressed like he was when he stayed at the kennel. Lisa took good care of him and he was treated like one of the family. She also sent me pictures and updates which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend Lisa.

We left Sophie for a week with Lisa (and Coachie, Lisa's dog). Lisa kept us up to date on how Sophie was doing which we very much appreciated. Sophie seemed to have a great time with Coachie and Lisa's family. We would definitely feel comfortable leaving Sophie with Lisa again. Thank you Lisa

Daisy was so happy and enjoyed herself at Lisa's! She was very happy to see me when I went to pick her up- she was excited but really wanted to stay playing with her new friends! Thanks Lisa and family!

Lisa is AWESOME!!!! She watched Gunner for us while we were in Maine this summer. She sent pictures and texts daily to ease our minds. She even watered our garden and flowers because it had gotten so hot. Gunner took to her right away and she wasn't deterred by his lack of manners! Would highly recommend her to anyone for any of their pet needs!
