About Lisa:

Lisa & Dixie

Lisa has been a Newbury, MA resident since 2000 and converted her horse property to provide a large safe playground and boarding facility for dogs. She provides a fun filled day for a select group of dogs at her Newbury Farm. Her home is the perfect solution for a dog who can not handle large dog day care facilities and a great vacation spot for your four legged companions while you’re away.

Lisa’s love of animals started as a small child. There has always been a dog in her life from day one and her love of horses soon followed. Occasional horse rides sparked an interest in riding that blossomed in her twenties. In 2002 Lisa built her own 3 horse barn on her property in Massachusetts “Dreams to Reality Farm”. As the dog boarding business grew Lisa made the difficult decision to board her horse locally therefore opening her beautiful barn property for the dogs.

With her background in horse training and care, training and caring for her own dogs and a constant drive to read anything on dog training and pet care her  knowledge is continually growing. A certificate in Pet CPR from the American Red Cross and basic knowledge of pet first aid assure that your pet will be well cared for. Lisa’s  knack for knowing which dogs will enjoy each others company and plenty of safe large areas for group play, make the property the perfect place for a fun filled day of play and comfortable night sleep.

Anne and Fancy

Anne provides a large number of Plum Island clients with dog walking services and beach walks. She also brings a limited number of dogs into her home for day and vacation care. Works with Lisa on horse sitting assignments and has a large following in house sitting customers for Plum Island homes.

Anne’s lifelong love of animals, combined with her ability to organize and adapt has lead her to finding ways to spend more time with animals. She currently owns two cats, a Coon and a Savannah, a Rottweiler, and a Quarter horse, and has always had animals in her life. Along with ensuring her daughter grows and develops into the person she dreams of becoming and spending time with her husband, Anne is also the “go to person” for her neighbors when care or advice regarding their animals is needed. Maintaining a home that includes so many four-legged members and being a wife and mother, requires organization and the ability to change course continuously, and Anne does this seamlessly.

Anne honed her organization and people skills through her past work as an office manager for a busy construction company. She is now combining her strengths into one business that allows her to share her knowledge and provide comfort to those who want to travel, but must leave their four-legged family members at home.
