Introduction: We can help you keep your dog healthy and happy. We offer neighborhood scent walks, pet sitting for animals of all kinds and basic dog training. Our goal is to make sure your pet feels comfortable and is mentally stimulated via walks, puzzles/games or training. All of our services come with care and compassion for the animals and a desire to build a great relationship with our clients. Nature Dogz is licensed, bonded, insured and pet first aid certified. We are also a member of Pet Sitter's International. I am a certified trainer and have trained over 100 dogs in group classes and individual sessions. My experience has been working with dogs, and clients, at a training facility and while volunteering at several shelters. Scent Walks: We understand the importance of mental stimulation and take your dog on a neighborhood walk, allowing them to sniff and explore the world outside their own backyard. We also have games and puzzles to use on rainy, or hot, days. These are thoroughly washed between each visit. Pet sitting: We will clean/change litter or bedding, provide food/water, and lots. and lots of attention, play, and mental stimulation. Pet sitting includes a shorter walk for dogs. We can bring in your mail, water plants, close/open curtains and turn on/off lights with any service. Training: We can help with basic cues, leave it, loose leash walking and emergency recall. Dog training is mostly "human training with a dog". Let us help you learn to better understand your dog and work with you to teach them basic manners. We only use positive methods and do not utilize shock, prong, or choke collars.

Lisa was great with our 4 dogs while I was away. The dogs loved her from the start and had no problems with her. She posted pictures of them while I was gone. We will definitely use her services again. Even if we aren’t going out of town. Thank you, Lisa!! G’Kar, Walter, Niqa and Toby

Lisa took care of my two dogs for a week, coming to my home for four visits per day, which included daily walks. I appreciated the daily visit updates and photos she sent that assured me my pups were in good hands. Not only did she take great care of them, she watered my outdoor hanging plants and took out the garbage can on collection day without me even asking. She was a pleasure to work with and it was a much better experience for my dogs to remain in the comfort of their home versus boarding. And it turns out, better economically for me as well. I highly recommend Lisa and will most definitely ask her to take care of my dogs again next time I travel. Thanks Lisa!!

Lisa was great with our King Charles Cavalier. We were out of town for the first time in 2 years and little nervous of our over anxious dog. Lisa came in for a meet and greet and got to know all of our dogs needs. She was great with him during the time we were out and made him very comfortable. She sent updates and pics daily to keep us informed. Would highly recommend her to everyone and will surely use her services again.

Kedar, I truly enjoyed caring for your baby while you were away. My goals are to help the pet feel as comfortable as possible and give the family peace of mind that their babies are being taken care of. I understand how hard it is to leave them, especially those that are a bit anxious. I took it slow with him and we became fast friends after a short time. Thank you again for your trust and confidence. I look forward to seeing him again in the future.

Lisa cared for our four dogs and home while we went on vacation and I couldn’t have more positive things to say about our experience in working with her. She was extremely kind and responsive in our initial interactions and I felt so comfortable leaving everything in her care. During our trip, she communicated very timely updates and lots of great pictures. We really enjoyed her and look forward to having her care for our pups again!

Michele, thank you for your trust and the kind comments. Rescues are near and dear to my heart and your 4 were so much fun to care for. They are all so unique but get along so well. We had a great time playing and the love they gave was truly endless. I look forward to caring for them in the future.

Lisa did a fantastic job taking care of our dogs! From our initial meeting to checking up when we returned she was great. We got updates after every visit so we knew how the dogs were doing. Handled different medicines and routines with no problem. Only problem we had is that the dogs got so much attention I think they missed Lisa once we returned 😄. Have already booked for future service!!!! Thanks again Lisa!

I love that they missed the attention but am sure they were very glad to have you back home. I do my best to provide love, attention, and communication to make that time as stress free for all as much as possible. I can't wait to see them again in a few weeks! Thank you for the kind words and trust.
