Note: I also can provide home made food made from high quality ingredients from a vet approved recipe custom tailored to your specific dog providing all of its nutrients, minerals, vitamins and other beneficial supplements. And I can provide basic grooming, vet pick up and drop off, & training sessions. I am also certified for pet first aid and CPR. I provide hands-on, eyes-on care of your pet. 24 hours a day 5 days a week. And twice a week I take 1-2 hours to take care of my own needs. And I try to take them with me when I can.

Although the backyard is small, there are plenty of enriching activities available for all my furry friends. For daily exercise, we venture up the street to the spacious and dog-friendly Eling's Park, which is both beautiful and super safe for dogs. Additionally, we make a daily trip to the leashed side of Hendry's Beach or one of the many local parks that are dog friendly and our favorites like Hale Park or Toro Canyon Park plus I plan other interactive and exciting outings based on the individual needs and preferences of each pet. Transportation is not a problem, as I have a dog-friendly Honda Accord equipped with harnesses, bungees, dog seat belts with bungees, and a crate for small to medium size dogs. I prioritize the safety and comfort of your pets during car rides, and the seats can easily be folded down for added space. As a trained professional in emergency first aid for pets, I am prepared for any situation that may arise. I will follow any necessary medication routines or dietary plans, and I am happy to accommodate any specific nutritional needs your pets may have. Behavioral challenges or needs will be discussed with you, and together we will create a customized plan to ensure that your pet feels comfortable and happy in my care. If there is anything else I can do to meet your pets' needs, please do not hesitate to let me know. I am always happy to provide excellent service and tailor my approach to meet the individual needs of each pet.

“We traveled up from San Diego with our dogs to get married at the Santa Barbara Courthouse and needed someone to hang out with them outside while we signed papers and did the ceremony. Lisa was so wonderful!!! She was so quick to get back to me as we were making plans, she showed up on time and was warm and friendly. She also offered to stay longer while we were taking photos which was so nice because it was pretty chaotic. I’d definitely hire Lisa again and can confidently recommend her if you need a reliable dog sitter.”
