About Lisa M.:

As an experienced dog lover, I've worked in a leading guide dog kennel and as a bather/brusher in the grooming department for a national pet store. I offer possibilities for your dog to be comfortable in his own environment without the stress that typically occurs while in a kennel situation. What does your dog enjoy? A walk in the woods? Splashing through streams? A calm stroll through a familiar neighborhood? Chasing sticks and balls in your fenced backyard? I'll be providing the extra loving care your dog will be missing while you are away. I am an avid photographer and I love to take pictures to keep you updated on your baby! As an owner, I know what I am looking for in a pet sitter for my own fur baby!

Lisa M.'s Experience:

I've worked in a leading guide dog for the blind kennel and in the grooming department for a major chain. As an owner and pet sitter, I have experience with a range of temperaments, quirky behavior, and sizes!

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

I've been a dog lover my entire life, even crawling into the dog cage with my puppy as a young child. Working in a national guide dog school was fun, as was my time in the grooming department of a national pet store (my favorite part was working with different breeds of dogs and passing along training and care tips). I learned that I cannot volunteer in dog shelters, as it is too difficult for me to leave the dogs there; I lived in Okinawa briefly and I couldn't leave without bringing a dog home to the States with me!

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

Any quirks? PLEASE be honest. I have owned difficult dogs (a fear biting Shiba X, an overprotective German Shepherd, a Lab/Weimaraner with an extremely delicate stomach, a very destructive German Shorthaired Pointer, a very ill American Foxhound, a brainless Collie, and a temperamental Keeshond) and I currently own a beautiful Alaskan Malamute who loathes small white fluffy dogs and thinks that Pugs are squeaky chew toys. I understand. However, to keep everyone safe, happy, and on the same page; be honest and forthcoming with your dog's issues. If you do have a dog with quirks, I will need to visit your dog and watch your interaction with your dog's trigger experiences before accepting a pet sitting appointment. I have to say I do enjoy large and giant dogs!

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

Yes, I have an SUV that will accommodate very large dogs.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes, administering medication is not an issue. However, I need an honest assessment of your dog's quirks please!

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

Sure, I have no problems picking up the mail (I will not sign for packages though) or watering plants.

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

An hour is a good rule of thumb. If you would like additional services, such as a brush out or a longer walk, these must be discussed before sitting commences.

I called Rover.com the day before I needed a sitter. From the moment that I first spoke with the first person at Rover, I just felt safe. They were able to find a wonderful and caring provider in Lisa. Lisa kept me informed with texts and pictures of Britney and asked questions that I didn't even think to mention. Not only did Britney really take to Lisa, but so did I. We can’t even say Lisa’s name without Britney running to the door looking for her! She has a new friend. I HIGHLY recommend Lisa and will be using her again in two weeks! I can’t say enough good things about her. (Collapse)
