About Linda

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are retired and have tons of energy and time. Needless to say we love dogs! We celebrate all holidays with our pets. We have had dogs for over 30 years. I love to walk and have a wicked sense of humor. Any dog will be treated like royalty. Some one is normally home 24/7. We presently do not have a dog.

Initially we were apprehensive about leaving Teddy, our miniature poodle as this was his first time being away from us.
Linda and Paul treated Teddy like one of their family and he was very comfortable and happy
being there. He was well engaged in his favorite past time, Chasing and fetching his ball. Teddy was well cared for.
I highly recommend Linda G. We will be using them again the next time we have to go away.
Linda G was so warm and I think my puppy had a great time! We would recommend her to anyone!
Our baby has stayed at Linda G's several times now and he really enjoyed it. What impressed me most was that on our way to drop him off the second time, he actually jumped into my lap (while driving) as our car turned the final corner before Linda's house and his tail was wagging furiously. He knew where he was going and knew he was in for a good time. Our baby needed daily medicine and our host patiently took care of it. I can't say enough about the care our baby received.
Linda and Paul are very nice, warm and compassionate people. They treated my dogs as if they were their own. They possess a natural instinct for love of pets and I would highly recommend them to anyone. My pets have never stayed with anyone besides me. So they are very attached to me. What I loved is the fact that they became attached to Linda and Paul immediately, which made me feel so much better while separated from my pets. Thanks again Linda and Paul. Love, Jack, Baby and Lorraine
My two poodles just spent the last five days with Linda and Paul and had the best time! They are wonderful, caring people and took care of them like they were their own kids. We will definitely book with them for our next vacation.
Very nice people that really love animals
I feel like the luckiest person (and so does my doggy Wally) to have found such wonderful people. The peace of mind of leaving our little dog with an incredibly loving and caring couple is just beyond words. Linda and Paul took care of Wally for 2 weeks, cared for him like family and even better, sent us texts and photos, and made sure Wally was a happy and comfortable dog. What more could anyone ask for. Linda and Paul are truly a rarity. As much as I would like to keep them a secret for myself, it's important to tell other dog owners how great they are. Obviously we will be requesting their services again, and again, and again...........
My shih-tzu Suki spent 7 days with Linda and Paul, and I am so pleased on how wonderfully they took care of my sweetie. They are so loving and attentive to our pets needs, I would recommend them highly, and I certainly will be availing myself of their services again. Thanks Linda!!!!
Linda was the best! Mia was definitely sad to leave and seemed like she was definitely having a good time based on the picture Linda would send daily! Will definitely use her again for our next trip!!!
Linda and Paul are terrific! They treated Mollie like she was their own. I would have no hesitation leaving Mollie with them again. Thank you Linda and Paul for taking such good care of Mollie. Definitely recommend.
This is such a great service!! We left our 9 month old puppy for the first time with Linda and her husband. They took such good care of him and he can be a handful!! I really feel comfortable with them and will definitely use them again!!! Such nice and caring people!!
I'm lucky that Pebbles was willing to come home after her stay with Linda and Paul.....she was obviously spoiled. This was her first stay with them and I was naturally nervous. My fears were quickly put to rest with the first text from Paul containing several pictures of my happy dog. I'm so glad to have found them and I will be happy to have Pebbles stay with them again for our next vacation.
Being a Dog owner for over 50 years ,I can inform you, their are not more concerned and wonderful People as Paul & Linda Do not look any further for the best hosts ever !! I highly recommend !!
Our host, Linda, deserves a big gold star. Our aged, deaf terrier was not an easy client. Linda was concerned, professional, and gracious. If you are looking for a true vaca for you and your pooch we highly recommend Linda G. Give her a call.
The best dog sitters you could how for!
There are not enough stars to rate Linda and her husband. Loving, totally competent. I was so relaxed on my vacation knowing that Bella was in the best hands.
Linda & her husband, Paul, are such wonderful people. They graciously agreed to take our two little boys for a very last minute overnight stay. They were wonderful and gave us good reports and photos. I know are boys were loved and well cared for while we were gone. We have another booking with them for a weekend in March and I feel so at ease knowing that our boys have a loving home to go to while we are away. Thanks again Linda & Paul! See you next month!
Linda and her husband were wonderful sitters. We met a few days before I needed to board Bailey and she made me feel so comfortable with the plan. She has a lovely home and is very loving to the dog. They sent me videos and even called the next day after I picked up Bailey to make sure everything was fine. I couldn't think of nicer or more caring "adoptive parents". I will definitely use them again.
Linda was so warm and kind that even at our first meeting I knew Darwin would be a happy camper. It is so comforting to know I was leaving my baby boy in good hands. I would have him stay with her again in a heartbeat!
Linda and Paul are the loveliest, kindest people ever! We can't believe how lucky we were to find such a wonderful couple to watch our doggy Wally. From the moment you meet them you just know the searching has stopped. They are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, caring and clearly love dogs. They took care of Wally for a week, sent us texts and photos, and when we picked him up it was so obvious how comfortable he was with them. They are a gem of a couple and we will definitely be using them again!
Linda was great! We know that they took great care of Wendy while we were away for the weekend. They really seemed to enjoy her and get to know her, and she was very comfortable with them in their great home! All of the communication and the drop off and pick up were very smooth and they replied very promptly to all communication. They also sent a few texts with pictures while we were away! We loved them for Wendy!
they were GREAT. i really dont want everyone to know or they wont be available to watch my babies. was very much at ease that they treated my babies like their own!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am very happy i found them janet
This is the second time I used Linda to take care of my King Charles. This time it was for two weeks.
The level of care, love and attention given to my dog was again more than excellent. I recommend anyone that needs loving care for their dog to consider contacting Linda and her husband.
Linda G. provided care for my dog far above expectations. It was a great experience!

All my instructions were carried out in a very loving way. I could tell that Malibu was a very happy dog while he was in Linda's care.
I recommend Linda G. to anyone that wants someone that will love on your dog and treat your dog as if it was her own.

I plan to use her services again at the end of August, 2015.
Linda and her husband watched my pup for a couple of nights. They are a very lovely couple and was very comfortable with them right away. Linda sent pictures of my pup to me everyday. Ruby was very happy when we arrived to pick her up and actually did not want to leave! Lol!
We really appreciated the hospitality and the good care Linda took of my pup. :)
OMGoodness such a beautiful and loving couple. I would highly recommend Linda and Paul! Our babies were spoiled and adored. We will definitely have them babysit our pooches again. Wonderful loving experience complete with text photos. LOVED getting the photo updates!
