Pet Sitter & Dog Walker
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about us! I started Desert Tails Pet Services in 2019 from the ground up with the sole intention of providing loving and safe care for animals while their owners are away. There is nothing scarier than having a stranger come into your home and care for your pets. As a pet owner myself, I hold a gold standard of care for anyone on the opposite end of my dog's leash. I carry that gold standard in my business model.
When you become part of Desert Tails Pet Services, you’re now part of our pack, our family.
Each pet sitter & dog walker are hand selected, background checked and an extension of myself. Each sitter is held to a high level of care than the average pet owner. We’re animal lovers for life and most importantly we will care for your loved ones with superior quality and the upmost respect for your home while you’re away.
Originally from the northeast, Lisa and her husband Tony exchanged the cold for sunshine. When she is not caring for her clients’ pets, she is spending time with Benny & Charlie (rescued Shih Tzu’s), cycling, running and baking. Lisa is First Aid/Pet CPR Certified, A member of Pet Sitter Associates and Professional United Pet Sitters, LLC.
I'm an animal lover of all types, from zero to 8 legs, they are all adorable to me. Professionally, I've been a department animal curator for several years. I've also enjoyed volunteering for our local animal shelter and the Arizona Game and Fish Department. All avenues have indulged me in learning about animal behavior and how to best serve and protect them. As a pet owner myself, I know how they should be cared for and I extend that same level of care, compassion, and empathy to my pet clients while in my care.
In my spare time I enjoy gardening and learning all about the desert’s flowers & plants and how to keep them alive in this dry heat. I look forward to meeting and caring for your beloved companion(s).
Hello! As a lifelong animal lover and a proud 40 year desert dweller, grandmother and occasional nanny of 6 wonderful grandchildren, I also love caring for animals. I'm now semi-retired, but in my prior life, I owned a few businesses and really enjoyed putting my all into them and providing great customer experiences and service.
The best part of the job is seeing the look on their little faces when they greet me at the door. I go above and beyond for each animal I care for in the Desert Tails Pet Services family.
I've known Lisa for quite a few years as she also cares for my little puppies when I'm out of town. I know how passionate and loving Lisa is which is why I'm excited to bring the same enthusiasm to the Desert Tails family!
I live in Cave Creek with my husband and fur baby hank.
I love working part time for Lisa and Desert Tails! I've co-owned and managed a non-profit rescue organization for many years in my prior life. I have extensive experience working with many different types of dogs. I like to think I have a special bond with all the animals I come in contact with. I'm passionate about the dogs well being and always makes sure they're enjoying the adventure! The best part of the job is helping animals when their owners are away or busy. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction knowing they're safe and happy in my care.
