About Lisa

I'm an experienced sitter in the Centretown area, offering up a clean, quiet & loving environment for your fur babies while you're away (or just looking for a little R&R).

About me: I am a 27 year-old working part-time in retail only a few blocks from home. I am home most of the day and often return on breaks to take Birdie outside. I've lived with animals my entire life and understand, naturally, that you're on this website seeking the best possible care for your little ones. That's exactly what I'm here to provide! I have previous experience with the Pawshake app; I had an account about two years ago that I had reluctantly deactivated upon starting a second job. I’ve been back in action since February 2019 and love every second of making so many new four-legged friends. ☺

About my services:

Home visits consist of either one or two house visits that last 45 minutes or so, depending on your pet's needs. During this visit, I would feed your pet(s), refresh their water dish, take dogs for a short walk / potty break, play & socialize with the kitties, clean the litter box, and so on. I'm also happy to water your plants, bring your mail inside and take garbage/recycling out if need be. I am experienced with administering medication to animals, as well.

As for home boarding, I am flexible with booking and am happy to board up to 3 extra pets (either cats or dogs) at a time. We typically take two trips to Jack Purcell dog park per day (morning & evening) and go for a stroll around the neighbourhood midday.

I also offer house sitting in the downtown core. This means that Birdie and I would stay at your residence round the clock, provided I don’t have any bookings for dog boarding at the requested time. This service would be ideal for households with both cats and dogs, or for those of you whose fur babes don’t adjust all that well to new environments.

About the apartment: My apartment is puppy-proofed, equipped with a large dog crate and puppy pads if needed, a litter box, and lots of toys and treats for cats and dogs alike. It's clean and bright, with big windows for bird-watching. It is tucked away on a quiet street in Centretown, with plenty of dog-friendly parks nearby for off-leash adventures. Though I don't have a yard, I do live on the main level with a private entrance (only a couple of steps to enter/exit the apartment, so elderly dogs would be happy), making frequent walks and potty trips outside a breeze for all involved.

About my pets: I have two pets of my own; an easygoing ginger tabby named Louie (6 years old, neutered, up to date on all vaccines), and a fun-loving black labradoodle/wolfhound pup named Birdie (1 year & 7 months, spayed, up to date on all vaccines). Both would relish the extra company and have been socialized to be around animals of all shapes and sizes.

I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!

Lisa did a great job looking after my attention-loving finicky-eating cat. She even took the time to sweep up all the litter my cat tracks throughout the apartment. Her regular updates had adorable photos, and I came home after two weeks to a happy, well-brushed cat.

Omen came home happy and exhausted from such a fun day with Lisa and the other dogs.
