Meet the Owner
Lisa Dully has loved animals all of her life and has shared her love with a host of family pets, including five dogs, llamas, a mini horse, a mini donkey, quarter horses and several barn cats. Her passion began as a young child, growing up on a farm in Roanoke, Illinois. She not only helped her family raise cattle, goats, horses and rabbits, but cared for and nurtured animals that nobody else wanted. After many years of working in an office, she finally decided to follow her true passion. In 2010, with the encouragement of her husband, Derek, and her father, Lisa decided to make a huge life change. She left a steady full-time job managing a dentist’s office to open a small dog boarding facility in Goodfield, Illinois. She’s never regretted it. Since then she’s been pouring her heart and soul into providing loving care for many pets. Both Lisa and Derek are CPR certified, hold the “Dog Guru” certification and take part in continuing education for the very best in dog care. Their teenage daughter, Alaina, also loves animals and devotes hours helping care for their pets.
Over the years, Lisa and her husband noticed a need for a doggy daycare in Peoria so they decided to expand. Big dreams have become a reality with a new, state-of-the-art facility in Peoria with all the amenities to make your dog feel right at home.
At Waggin’ Tails Resort, we want you to trust us and feel confident that your dog is safe, cared for and feeling comfortable in their new home-away-from-home.
