Lissa was beyond great!!! Our dog (Bailey) took very positively to her right away and she doesn't always do that around new people!! While we were away, She kept us up to speed on how Bailey was doing and sent us lots of pictures! They enjoyed walks and lots of cuddle time! Bailey's favorites!! And when we returned the house looked just as we left it! We cannot speak more highly of Lissa and we ...

Lissa was so wonderful! The dogs loved snuggling and each one made her their favorite during our short trip over the holidays. The house was spotless when we arrived back home and we found both dogs sniffing the guest room looking for her. We'd hire Lissa again in a heartbeat.

This was the second time we had Lissa stay. Our dog was happy and settled upon return, Lissa gave proactive updates and responded quickly to my inquiries, and all was well with the house. Lissa is responsive, conscientious, and again -- dog and house were settled and happy upon return. The next time we need someone to stay, Lissa is the first call.

Loves Big Dogs & Seniors

A happy dog is a happy owner, and I like to ensure that every time. When staying in your home, I will leave it as clean (if not cleaner) than I found it, will send regular updates with photos and notes about what your dog and I have been up to, and will even allow you to video-chat with your dog if you'd like. I will make your dog a priority, and communication will always ...

What Lissa would like to know about your dog

I don't have any breed preferences, and love all dogs. However, I especially like senior dogs and large dogs. I like to know where dogs most like to be pet, and what they don't like so that I can make sure the dog is as comfortable as possible with me. I also like to know where they prefer to go on their walks and if there are any areas we need to avoid, any house rules around furniture or rooms they can play in, feeding and exercise schedules, triggers or anxieties, behavioral tendencies, medical needs, and any other pertinent info! I love ALL dogs, but I especially enjoy large dogs and seniors! I have experience giving medications as well! For sitting for more than 1 dog, my usual rate is half of the daily rate for each additional dog (ex: $26/night + $13 per night for each additional dog).

When Lissa watches your pet

I usually housesit, so I like to ask the owners where their dog likes to go on walks, and stick to that. However, I like going to the lakes or nice trails for a walk. My favorite lake in the summer to go to with dogs is Calhoun. It's a nice walking distance, and gives dogs a lot of different things to check out.

I like to talk with owners to see what their dog's favorite activities are, and try to incorporate those things into our time together as much as possible. Usually after work, we'd have dinner together, have some fun activity time, and then hopefully end the night with some snuggling/pets on the couch. Then your dog would be welcome to sleep with me (as long as you allow that). On the weekends, I like to spend even more time with my puppy clients, and I try not to be away for too long during my stays.

When the weather is nice, I like walking around the lake with friends and a dog, and then bringing the dog with us to dog-friendly patios afterwards (especially if my friend's dog can come along too!). When I have dog sitting clients, I also really like going to the dog park with them (if they and their owners are comfortable). When I have a dog-sitting client, I prioritize them and try to do as many activities as I can that can include the dog!
