My name is Lisa Elias and I consider myself very lucky to have lived my entire life in South Orange County - Laguna Niguel since 1995.  There was never a time when I did not have a pet - cat, hamster, chinchilla, bird, dog - I loved them all equally.  I recently rescued a Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix and am in love with her.  Clovis is her name.

I spent most of my adult working life as a Paralegal for a sole practitioner in Laguna Beach - 13 years to be exact.  Once my boss retired I decided it was time to focus on one of the things I truly love, animals.  So my next job was at Alicia Pet Care Center, in Mission Viejo, where I was their Client Services Manager.  Going to work everyday and being a part of keeping pets healthy and happy was amazing.  I was able to sit in during surgeries and help the nurses - all while taking care of clients.  The hospital houses a rescue - and every chance I got I walked the dogs that had braved being abandoned or left at shelters.  It was so gratifying watching them grow into loving pets and find their forever homes.

I am excited to take care of your cats and your dogs, they are such important parts of our families.  I promise to treat your pets with the same caring and love as I do my own.

My Mission

I started Hot Diggity Dog Walking in 2013 with one goal: to take care of my customers' pets like they are my own. That means coming to you and your home for more than just a visit, but to walk and play with your pets and make sure that they are not just getting exercise, but also plenty of love.
