A big,big thank you to Lisa G and Anton for making Tristan a part of their life and family for the last few days.We just picked him up and it was clear to me that he was just as comfortable as he could be:I could tell that they had really gotten to know our little guy in just a few short days. We got lots of the cutest pictures imaginable (and even some live action video!) while we were away. I felt so comfortable with their home and set up after our meet and greet and drop off that I felt at ease on our vacation. Which is just what you want, right? The pictures, video and comments about his antics during his stay just helped to further set my mind at rest that Tristan was enjoying his vacation as well. He made friends, both two-and four legged, got to play, got cuddles and even had some pool time. Lisa G/Newbury Bark has been very professional and kind in all our dealings 5 stars!
Sorry it took so long to write this review. We were in California for our son's wedding. We drove our RV out from Ohio and took our 3 dogs and 1 cat. Lisa and her husband were great! It is so hard to find pet sitters in our area, so we have to take our furry kids with us. Our pets were well cared for, treated like their own, given lots of exercise. Lisa and her husband are so easy to talk to. We would definitley call Lisa again if we found ourselves in the California area.
My family and I had a vacation to Mexico planned and our 2 year old dog Stella had never been in anyone else's care. Did an area search and found Lisa, who was just a few miles from me. We met beforehand and I was very impressed with her natural instincts and knowledge about caring for dogs. Stella was skittish at first, but eventually became comfortable with Lisa. Our dog wasn't that sociable in the past with other dogs, but Lisa reassured us that she would be just fine in the company of others. While we were away, Lisa sent us photos and good feedback about Stella, including a pic of her smiling with other dogs! When we got back, Stella looked clean, happy and even better than when we left her. Our family is very grateful for Lisa's care of our dog and we will definitely be using her in the future.
Thank you Lisa !
After meeting Lisa and Anton, we were very comfortable leaving our pup with them. They are friendly, easygoing people. They took good care of our pup and made sure that he was paired up with another dog to play and room with. They are very flexible with pick up and drop off times which we appreciated. If we had a question, we could call or send a message which added extra comfort for us.
Lisa is a real sweetheart who takes genuine interest in her charges. Not only is she obviously experienced with canines, but she understands who will vacay well together. I have tremendous confidence in Lisa which is a priceless blessing! My pup always enjoys her vacations ( I know this because Lisa sends pictures and videos!) and sleeps like a log following her stays. I say the G is for Golden
Our two Labs loved their stay with Lisa and Anton. We appreciated the pix and short videos Lisa sent us every day or two. We will definietly be booking again with Lisa G. She and Anton provide a great alternative to traditional boarding.
Lisa and her husband are so great! I got photos and videos every day, starting only moments after I left her (probably because she knew I was experiencing separation anxiety). Ruby Tuesday LOVED her time there. She must have been playing, playing, playing the whole time because all she's done since we got home is follow me from room to room, go straight to her doggy bed, and crash! She's worn out from all that fun and doggy buddy time. I will definitely call them for any future business and pleasure trips. So glad I found them.
Phoebe was a happy dog. They sent lots of pictures and videos of her so I knew she was well taken care of. I would definitely use her again and recommend Lisa. Thanks Lisa
I really enjoyed the pictures and videos she sent me while I was on vacation. She is very friendly and you can tell how much she enjoys being around dogs. My dogs seemed very happy and worn out when we picked them up. I will definitely use her again.
Once Again...This is an awesome dog family. I think Sonny likes it better at your house than his own. Thank you and thank you again.
It appears that our dog had lots of fun playtime. I believe he especially enjoyed his swimming lessons. Lisa G sent several videos of him at play which were great to see and made us feel good about our choice for a host. He's a very active dog, yet that was not a problem for Lisa G.
I want to thank Lisa and Anton for helping us out with Honey, she's very hard of hearing and almost completely blind. They had no fear in taking her on, what with meds and special care needed. We felt and feel that Honey had gotten te attention she needed to feel safe in their home.
This vacay experience was wonderful and we will use them again in the future.
Our GSD Sonny had a GREAT experience. I love the fact that this is a pet oriented family and they truly did a great job caring for our dog. We will definitely be booking with them again. Thank you, you guys are awesome.
Wow I was not expecting such an amazing family and happy couple, Lisa and her husband were so accommodating to my needs as an owner, even let me take my puppy to their house last minute the day before to let him sniff around for almost an hour just to become familiar before I dropped him off early the next day. I could tell my pup truly had a blast at this home with Lisa and her husband. They are really very good people, and I know Toby definitely wants to come back soon to see his new friends again =]
I don't think our dog Ziggy could thank us enough for letting him stay with Lisa and Anton! We could instantly see the bond he formed with them when we picked him up after just one night. Plus Lisa was kind enough to provide us with pics and video of Ziggy playing with new doggy pals- you could tell how much fun he was having...and to think we were worried that he'd be sad that we left him. We couldn't have been more thrilled to have finally found the perfect place to leave our boy!
Very nice couple--obviously dog lovers--clean cheerful home--very accommodating of our dog's likes and needs--Truman came home in great shape and happy. They even sent us cute photos by text message that really were greatly appreciated and gave us peace of mind.
Our dog enjoyed his visit and the hosts were easy and professional. A great vacation.
What a great find for our dog Izzy! She absolutely loved her time at Lisa's and had a great time playing with the other dogs. I'll definitely use Lisa for another vacay when the need arises.
Lisa and Anton are true dog lovers and incredibly accommodating to both you & your furry friend. I always get a little anxious when I leave my pup with someone else, but Lisa sent frequent texts with pictures and videos to help alleviate the nerves. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!
Lisa and Anton are the best. They sent us videos and pics of our boys while in their care and they were having a blast! They slept til the next day when they got home.
Lisa and Anton are amazing. Baxter had a great day and bonded with them immediately. What a great find for me and my puppy. Thank you!!!
We were nervous about leavig our rescue dog with someone else and weren't sure how she would do with other dogs around in a new house. Lisa and Anton were totally in tune with our concerns and it's clear they care for each and every dog in their care. They pick up accuratley on each personality and are careful to avoid conflicting situations. Our dog was at ease when we picked her up and we were very glad to find a spot where we could be away from our "baby" without worrying about her well being. Well done, Lisa and Anton.
Lisa and Anton are the best! Wonderful people and they have a true love for dogs. Do not hesitate booking with them!
Lisa and Anton are true dog lovers and it shows! Our dog is a rescue and can be nervous with new people, they were very understanding and welcoming at the meet and greet and she warmed up to them very quickly! Their house and their yard is great for dogs. Our pooch really enjoyed sprinting around the pool ( using it like a racetrack!) We felt very comfortable leaving her with them and would recommed them to others. Great People.
Love this house! Susy seems very happy there. :)
Lisa was great. The dogs seemed happy when we picked them up. I felt very comfortable leaving them in Lisa's care.
