Lydia took great care of Thor while we were out of town. She keeps us updated while we are away and treats him like her own. Thank you, Lydia!
Lydia watched my son's pet in an emergency situation and did a great job. "Tank" was taken care of like her own pet. We appreciate everything she did for us. Would definitely recommend Lydia.
My Bailey is 14 years old and never stayed with anyone other than myself and my mom, until Lydia. She was wonderful!!! We had excellent communication right from the start, and I loved getting updates on Bailey while away from her. Bailey made herself at home as soon as she arrived, and Lydia was great with her. I definitely recommend her and will use her again for future trips if needed.
Very helpful, nice and understanding! Great yard for the dogs to run around in.
Lydia was great with my 3 month old Maltipoo, Bear and my brothers 9.5 year old Lab-Rott mix, Buddy. The dogs were very happy at her house, seemed to love her yard, and through the photos we could see they both really liked Lydia and her daughter. It's clear the Lydia is a dog lover and genuinely cares for each pet she hosts. We would definitely bring them back to her for future vacays for the dogs! The only thing I'd change is ensuring we get daily photos of our dogs without prompting. It is very hard to leave our 4-legged family members and the photos help. Even with that comment, we truly appreciated Lydia being so welcoming and loving to both dogs.
Lydia was great with my dog Farrah. I had just moved here from San Diego and had never left her with a stranger before. Lydia tool such great care of her and I will be useing her again in the future!!
Lydia took my reservation last minute & was very responsive. My pups spent the weekend with her & I know they were loved & cared for as she would her own. Lydia kept me posted throughout their stay & sent me pictures frequently. I will continue to use Lydia for all my pet vacays in the future!
Lydia is awesome! She takes great care of Jake. When I picked him up, Lydia was getting home at the same time and Jake was more excited to see her than me. She's sends pictures everyday which is really nice. Thank you, Lydia!!
My dog loved it there! Lydia was very friendly, with a huge yard for Cairo to run in. She was great at communicating with me before I dropped him off and sending me updates while I was gone. He hates kennels, so this was a great option for us.
Lydia was awesome with Milo. She took greag care of him. Hecwas so happy. She also gave him his medication and gave him a special bag of doggie treats when he came home.
Couldn't be happier that Lily was in a home and cared for like she was home with us! Best experience ever leaving my pup while we were away. :-)
Lydia was fantastic! Her house has a large fenced in backyard where Macy was able to run around with her new friends.
We had a great experience leaving Sadie with Lydia! I would recommend her to anyone needing a sitter. Thanks, Lydia, for taking good care of our pup :)
not good
This is the second time our dog, Mason, has stayed with Lydia. We couldn't be happier we found her to care for our pup! This time we were out of the country and she was great about keeping us updated throughout the vacay, responding to all my e-mails, answering all my questions and sending us pictures of how much fun Mason was having! He came back home happy, exhausted and clearly well taken-care-of. Lydia will continue to be our go-to host and we fully recommend her!
We booked with Lydia while in town for a wedding. She was awesome and did a great job with our two dogs. We would definitely recommend her.
Had a urgent family need in Charleston area & I immediately thought of Lydia to bring our dog to. She cared for him so well over Christmas that I knew that she would take good care of him again. This was a VERY last minute reservation & I am so thankful that Lydia took him in.
Lydia was great with my very active 9 month old puppy! She also worked with me when our plans changed a little. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Lydia kept my 1 1/2 yr old dog, Gunner. We have never left him before & I was really nervous. I was very happy with the care Gunner received with Lydia. I felt very comfortable knowing he was in a home environment as opposed to a kennel. He had other dogs to play with & I received daily photos of him playing. I would definitely use Lydia again, no doubt!
Lydia took great care of Lexi during her first visit, which lasted for over a week. We appreciate Lydia's flexibility
She was great with my pups! i would definitely recommend her as a sitter.
She was fab. The dogs returned home quiet and spent and had received the best care. I received photos of them throughout my time away and they looked happy and unstressed. Thanks Lydia and I will definitely use you again, Candy (mother of Holly and Molly)
Dixie loved staying with Lydia she must have enjoyed herself she was worn out when she came home
Lydia was wonderful with my two dogs. This was such a more positive and so much better an experience than boarding my 15 year old spaniel mix and my 10 year old deaf and blind dog at a boarding kennel. They were happy and in good spirits. I enjoyed the daily photos she texted me of them enjoying their stays. She was professional and amazingly adept at handling multiple dogs. She is clearly a dog lover and a person who can multitask well. It was so much nicer to bring my clean, happy dogs home than the smelly, stressed dogs they were when I boarded them at a kennel. I will surely use her again.
Lydia was fantastic with Mason! I'm always anxious when we have to leave him so I am definitely thankful to have found this awesome host for him! She clearly cares very deeply for dogs and treats them as her own. I can't thank her enough for taking such good care of our high-energy hound! Mason was so exhausted from all the fun that he passed out as soon as he got in the car and will probably sleep through the day until tomorrow :D. We highly recommend her and will definitely leave Mason with her in the future!!
We were very pleased with Lydia and would let her keep our dogs if we are ever in the charleston area again. She gave us daily updates and sent pictures every day
Lydia was fabulous! Lola loved her and she was very easy to communicate with. She was also extremely accommodating as far as drop off and pick up times! THANK YOU!

Lydia was great with my pups. I contacted her a day before I needed my pups boarded for a last minute trip out of town and she was very responsive. We sent us photos of the dogs on a walk and hanging out on the couch. When the pups returned, they were happy and healthy. I would highly recommend Lydia! We will definitely be using her again to watch our pups.
Dutch is my buddy and partner in crime, so leaving him with someone I wasn't well acquainted with was uncomfortable for me. Lydia T made it an easy and stress free experience for both of us during my short notice business trip. I really appreciated the pictures and text messages letting me know how he was doing and if he was adjusting well. It was a great experience and I will definitely call on her again!
My wife and I were leaving town for a few days and our dog sitter fell through. We messaged Lydia last minute and she replied right away and was more than happy to watch our dog and did a fantastic job!
Zoey had a great stay with Lydia! Lydia was very flexible with my drop off and pick up time, and she sent me picture updates during Zoey's stay :) Thanks, Lydia :)
Lydia was a dream come true. She was able to help our pet be more "sociable" with other animals. we will most definitely book her services again in the future.
