About Linda

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live behind my massage clinic and am on premise 24/7. In fact, besides people massage, I am trained in canine massage. I can only take up to two SMALL dogs at one time.

We have an in ground pool that is dog friendly with a "ramp" and a large fenced back yard. The pups have full access to that area all day.

We are one block from a very large park in downtown where we take walks. Occasionally, we go in the car to the official city dog park.

My two pups are very social. They grew up as part of seven dachshunds in the house. Often, I watch my son's dachshund for weeks at a time when he is away.

The residence does have two areas with two steps down/up, but both have doggy ramps. Also, we have doggy ramps to get on the sofa and my bed. Dachshunds are known for getting bad backs, and we try to prevent that with the ramps.

My dogs sleep with me in bed. My son's dog sleeps under the bed sometimes, or in her own bed on the floor. We are flexible.

I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

We offer a warm, loving environment, with lots of love, attention, and special care. Your dog will feel like he/she is home.

when I drop Skipper off he didn't even see us when we left he was enjoying being there with Linda she was so kind and understanding that this was the first time that I had left him she let him sleep with her just like her own. she took pictures of the great time he was having with her she took him to the dog park which he had a great time with other dogs I would use her again Thanks Linda for taking such great care of Skipper.Love Shelly
The reservation went well. We also did a meet and greet and felt Linda was the best choice for myia our Doxie.
We did a meet and greet with Linda. We both loved her right away. Her dogs Minnie and Winnie welcomed Sasha. On the day of drop off, Linda picked Sasha up and kept her calm as I left. Her home is very inviting and she allowed Sasha to sleep where ever she felt comfortable. Throughout the stay Linda kept us updated with photos and messages. There is no one else I would chose to care of Sasha when I'm away except Linda. I have boarded Sasha and some really nice facilities and she always have anxiety,she wouldn't eat and barely drink. I tried few places and that was always the report. Not with Linda!!! Sasha felt right at home.
Linda is hands down the best!!!
Rene had a wonderful overnite stay. We had to make an emergency trip out of town and Linda was very accommodating.
Linda took such great care of Annie. She also took care of us by sending daily photos of Annie. It was great to know that she was well cared for happy. Linda went above and beyond to make sure that Everyone was well cared for.
Linda is awesome!,,,,,, Can't say enough wonderful things
From 1st email contact to the getting-to-know-you-visit to pick-up after our vacation, everything was perfect. Rene must have had a wonderful time. He was clean and unstressed when we picked him up. We are very pleased and can't wait for our next vacation now that we know Rene will be well taken care of while we're gone.
great place, Sherrie just loves DogyVaca, and she loves Linda and all her new friends
Sherrie just loves Linda, a very warm and loving home away from home. Sherrie gets along with the other guests which are all friendly, she just loves to go to Linda's !!
She was awesome and her frequent texts made me much more relaxed being away from my child. I will be definitely using Linda again.
Linda is wonderful. We always know that Sadie will be well cared for and given all the attention she needs. Thanks, Linda
Linda is awesome, she took great care of my 2 dogs while we were on vacation. She truly loves dogs and I felt completely at ease leaving them with her after our initial meet and greet. I would absolutely recommend her and will definitely use her again in the future if she is available. Just meeting her and seeing what she does for her own dogs, made me feel 100% comfortable leaving my dogs with her. I think they had a good time too.
Linda was great. Basil our dog took to her right away. She was accomadating to our need and very kind to us. We plan on have her take care of our dong on our next trip to Orlando. It was our first time using Dog Vacay and we would highly recommend the service and Linda. You could tell Lind loves dogs.
Buster really enjoys going to Linda's on vacation. We feel very safe leaving him with her. She's great with animals!
Aunt Linda was amazing! I (Gretchen) was tuckered out when my dad came to get me, had load of fun all week, and I enjoyed my vacation!. I love Aunt Linda and cannot wait to go back! Woof Woof Love Gretchen!
Linda is FABULOUS!!!
I am soooo pleased with the care my precious Lily received, during her stay with "Aunt Linda"
With just moving to the area, and not knowing anyone, Linda helped make my move, so easy.
And caring for Lily was one less thing I had to worry about.
Thank You Linda!!!
We will be returning!
Bob, Lori & Lily
Linda has always been great with our Danny.
Our twelve year old dog is set in his ways and generally does not enjoy being away from his people. He has stayed with Linda for our last two summer vacations, and it has been wonderful, because she and her pups made him feel so at home that they immediately became his people. She has sent us precious photos of him enjoying his time with her, and when we go to pick him up, he's not so sure he wants to leave with us. She earns our highest recommendation.
As always, Linda is wonderful with Danny. Her home is his home when we are away.
Linda is warm, efficient, and interested in the well being of her furry friends
My Ginny loves Linda. I totally trust my little girl with her. I can leave her with Linda with no worries at all.
My Ginny loved staying with Linda, Winny and Webster. She came home tired out. Her next stay will be 2 weeks. I feel so comfortable with Linda. She has a special way with animals.
Linda has what it takes to make pet owners feel as welcome as their fur babies! Not only did she greet my pets with a warm happy welcome, I got a hug as soon as I arrived. We are looking forward to our next visit!
Know Linda does the very best to make Sadie feel comfortable & at "home!" We're very appreciative and enjoy the pictures Linda takes. Pam & Tom Comer
Linda is a wonderful and very lovely person. My dog stayed with her per one week and she came back home very happy and healthy!!! Linda's house is now Patchie's second home!! I definitely recommend her!! Thank you Linda.
Linda is great! Although Danny is happy to be home, he does not show any signs of stress that he has had with other boarding arrangements.
Linda is great! A true dog lover, understanding and compassionate. This is Danny's home away from home.
Linda is wonderful. She is very loving to our dog Danny and seems to enjoy having him with her. Her two dogs are also very friendly to him. Leaving Danny with her gives us peace of mind for his well being.
Linda was just wonderful to my furbabies--they probably had a better time there than at home!
They spent all day chasing chameleons and resting with her dogs. I really appreciate the care and love she had for my dogs. Thanks Linda for everything and especially for the calendar of doggie pictures and the other doggie pictures. I recommend you try Linda for your vacation needs, just not when I would
like to board my pups with her! Sincerely Marianne
Larner and Jake and Maya.
Linda is wonderful. She is a kind caring person and will show your pet the love and attention they need while in her care. She took pictures daily and inserted comments from the pets as if it were their own thoughts. When I arrived to pick up Winston she had an envelope with a collection of pictures taken daily for me to take home. I would leave Winston with Linda again and again. He was in very good spirits when I picked him up. I'm sure the love and attention Linda provide him played a huge part in his mood.

Thank you so much Linda!!!!!!
"Aunt" Linda was great. It was the first time we had left our Shih Tzu/poodle, Sadie, away from home. She seemed to do well & we loved the pics Linda took for us! Will certainly use DogVacay & Linda W. again!
This was our first time leaving our puppy with a stranger. I was extremely worried as she is very close to us and being a Pom she has her routine. Aunt Linda sent a picture with my puppy, SIssy, curled around her shoulders as she does with me. I knew she was alright! We will visit Aunt Linda the next time we have to travel. I would recommend her to anyone!
When our neighbors could no longer watch our puppy, we were suddenly left without a dog-sitter for our ten-day trip to Vegas and LA. Our son in LA saved the day by sending a link to Linda at We were hesitant because, although Sylvie is 3, we had never left her overnight before. We were so relieved when we met "Aunt Linda". She was totally understanding of all our concerns and willing to do whatever was necessary to make Sylvie happy. During our trip, Linda sent pictures of Sylvie and kept us informed of how she was doing, When we returned, Sylvie seemed very content, relaxed, and comfortable. "Aunt Linda" treated her just like one of her own! When we need a dog-sitter again, Linda will be our first choice!
We love Linda!!! Our baby came home happy and tired. We are so glad to find somewhere to leave her where we feel like she is getting the love and attention she is used to. Thanks Linda , we will see you again soon.
"Aunt" Linda was amazing for our doggies. She surpassed our expectations by far! This was our first time ever leaving our dogs with anyone besides our family, and they really seemed to have a wonderful time. Linda says they were very well behaved, which was a little surprising to hear :-). One of the best parts of Wrigley and Bubba's stay was the photo book they got to bring home with them. Linda had taken pictures of them during their stay and added them all to a photo book, with captions! It was a very thoughtful and much appreciated added bonus. We will definitely use Linda again as long as she'll have us. Thank you again Aunt Linda for taking such great care of Wrigley and Bubba :-).
-The Lock Family
Linda is a warm and friendly person. She loves dogs and our Danny seemed to be comfortable with her. Her home is definitely dog friendly. Her 2 friendly dachshunds also accepted Danny into their home. We will definitely bring Danny back for Linda to care for him.
OMG Linda was amazing, our Gretchen ran right to her and that to us is a good thing! Linda taught her not to bark at every noise and we are SO thankful! She has been asleep all day and that to us means she had a great time. Anyone have a chance to use Linda for your babies do so you will not be sorry. Linda, Gretchen will see you soon!
