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 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

Lisa is terrific! She is a great doggy caregiver and truly does care for your pet like it is her own. Thanks, 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!

Molly had a great time at Lisa's.

We were very nervous about leaving our pup with anyone as we have had some not so great experiences in the past, but Lisa and her family were great! Betsy is not very good with new people and places and we were pretty worried about leaving her while we went out of town so we decided to do a trial night. Everything went great and the pictures and texts really put our minds at ease. We are going out of town at the end of the month and will definitely be booking with Lisa again! (Collapse)

My two silky terriers stayed with Lisa recently and it worked out great. Would definitely use her again.

Our Chihuahua was in good hands with Lisa and family. Lisa was very accommodating to my dog's habits and worked with my vacation and work schedules for visit, drop off and pick up. I was very appreciative to receive text updates during the week along with photos--one of which my dog genuinely looked like she was smiling. I think she had fun playing with Lisa's Yorkie. Would definitely use Lisa as a sitter again.
Lisa was an excellent sitter for my dog Smokey ( 7 yr. old Pit ). She watched him at her home for 5 hours while I attended a concert in Albany. She was professional, friendly, and responsible. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a sitter for their pet. Five Stars !!!

Testimonials

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!

This was to be the first night that Veronica and I spent apart since she was a 5 week old puppy. Obviously, our anxiety was high. Lisa showed me around her lovely home and fenced yard, a very nice place for a dog. Veronica fell in love with Lisa and Coachie, making it easier for me to leave. Lisa sent me texts and a photo of Veronica comfortable and happy at her slumber party. All throughout the process Lisa was so compassionate and professional. (Collapse)
