About Linda

We have a 3 bedroom split level with 3/4 acre of fenced in yard. We definitely have an animal friendly home. Our family loves animals and we have all lived with dogs and cats our entire life. We have owned, at one time, 5 other Siberian Huskies, who were all rescued. I was also the owner of my late mother's
daschund who recently passed away at the age of 18 years old.
I CAN administer oral medication to a dog. I have had been a RN for over 25
years.

We offer day care (1/2 and full days), dog walking,overnight, medication administration, bathing and have added
care to dogs at your home (during the day and transfer to our home at night-- see below). We will treat your dog(s) according to your specific instructions. Our dogs are never crated, have the run of the house and the yard, and can sleep where they want (including our beds). We believe dogs are very special and bring a lot of joy into our lives.We can care for any size dog because of our large back yard. With your permission, we go to the dog park near our home.
We have begun to offer another service if requested: We will watch your dog(s) in your home making visits throughout the day to feed, walk, and potty your dog(s). We will make our last visit of the day in the evening between 8 and 10 Pm at which time we will transport your dog to our home to stay with us overnight. We will return your dog(s) to your home the next morning and begin again until you return or until we can accommodate your dog(s) in our home. The cost of this service is negotiable depending on the number of days and the number of dogs. We have tried this service several times and have had great success with the care of the dog(s).
We also offer the following discounts: , multiple dog discounts (1 1/2 for 2 dogs) and military discount.We can also offer pickup and return of your dogs within 15 miles. Day care for multiple dogs is negotiable. We are now offering the opportunity for your pup to be cared for as a single reservation w/o other reservation pups( need advance notice) . Please discuss this option at the meet and greet.

To prevent flea and flea infestations of our guest dogs, we require all dogs be treated with frontline plus or its equivalent.
All dogs must be housebroken, not destructive, and I prefer dogs older than 9 months to one year. The rate for younger puppies is negotiable because of the increased time and intensity of the care for each of them.
We strive to give your pet a loving, safe and caring environment for their home away from home.
We now are able to offer care to our feline friends.
Through September 1, 2015, with each reservation we will donate 5.00 to Four Diamonds (it is a charity to defray the medical expenses of children with cancer).
For our loyal clients, we will honor prior rates for one year. Please let us know at the booking.

Our dog Duchess had a great stay with Linda and her family. She was nice and tired once we brought her home and seemed to have been truly loved. Duchess made some new friends. Linda even sent home a valentine cookie with duchess. So sweet. We will definitely be using Linda again and would recommend her to any dog owners.

Daisy always looks forward to spending time with Linda and her family. It's such a good feeling to feel at ease when you're away. I my baby is well taken care of.
Jack had a wonderful stay with Linda and her family. He can't wait to go see them again.
My dog Riley had a great time with Linda. She came back to us very tired, a sure sign of a happy pup. Linda messaged me later in the morning after I dropped off Riley to give me an update, and she sent us home with a Thank You card and a puppy cookie. I thought those were really nice, personal gestures. Will definitely use Linda in the future.

Linda was great!! She kept us informed on how Ryder was doing and even sent us pictures. She also dropped him off at our house which was great since we had just returned from vacay, When we unpacked our bag she had left us a thank you card for allowing her to watch Ryder and a special treat for him! We will use Linda for our next vacation and recommend her to our friends and family with dogs. Thanks Linda !!

Linda is the best! we love her and feel so at ease leaving the boys in her care
Linda is fantastic with dogs! She took care of our dog, Sasha, like she was her own dog. We felt completely comfortable while we were away and Linda was watching Sasha. I was a little nervous at first because Sasha suffers from some separation anxiety. However, Linda quickly put my concerns at ease by sending us pictures and reassuring messages that Sasha was doing just fine. In fact, I think Sasha had so much fun she was sad to leave when I picked her up! We are so happy to have found Linda to watch our dog and I'm sure that Sasha is too!

How lucky we are to have found Linda for our little guy. She takes SUCH good care of him. He's got allergies, and she manages his food flawlessly so he comes home in great shape. Plus he gets lots of loving from Linda and her family. It's a huge relief to know he's in such good hands. And we get frequent pics of him living the good life at his home away from home.

Linda is fantastic. Our dog had an issue while we were away and Linda handled it beyond our expectations. We love receiving the pics of our dog getting hugs and attention while we're away. She's the best!
Daisy loves going to Linda's. It makes me feel so good to be able to go away and not have to worry about my baby.
Our dog Spencer loves to stay with Linda. She's knowledgeable about dogs and views them as the individuals they are, so she's successful taking care of them (even our dog who can sometimes be a challenge).
I am so happy to have found Linda!!! She is so sweet, caring and just loves what she does. She takes the time to treat your dog like he's hers and it's great to have total piece of mind when leaving your furry baby. She even gave us suggestions on what could help out since we have an uber energetic Husky. We will not leave Frankie with anyone else! I can't give enough praise!

Repeat customer! Linda and her family are fantastic. We love seeing the pictures of all the fun Riley is having while we're away. He is truly treated like past of the family when he's there. We love that he has other dogs to play with and is treated with such love and care. Linda really knows Riley and what he likes. We just booked another vacation with Linda!

When I met Linda I immediately felt at ease. I needed someone to watch my dog and my daughters dog for her wedding. When we picked our dogs up the next day they were happy and very much at ease in their surroundings. I am planning on using Linda again the end of March. Thank you for making Daisy feel a part of your family.

Riley loves going to Linda's house. He runs right in the house when he arrives! We love the pictures of Linda's daughter hugging and holding him. He's so well taken care of!
Koko came home happy and relaxed. She made new friends on her vacay. She loves staying with Linda. Thank you so much!
Koko was treated like a member of the family as always. Im so happy that she has a place like this to stay while we are away!
Riley had a fantastic stay with Linda! She was accommodating with drop of and pick up times and handled everything just the way we do at home. Riley felt very comfortable in her home and she treated him with all the love and care that we do. We enjoyed the daily pictures of him receiving hugs and snuggles. We felt so comfortable leaving Riley in Linda's great care and it was so great to go away knowing that Riley was so well cared for. We will use Linda time and time again!

Another great weekend for our little boy.
This isn't just a place for our little guy to be babysat, this is a place where he is loved. He has allergy issues and Linda was really meticulous about keeping him away from other dogs' food and snacks. She even made him a dinner to make up for my mis-counting his servings while we were away. And Pico runs into the house when we drop him off. He's happy, so we're happy.

The dogs had such a great time at Linda's house. She sent us updates on a daily basis, so we knew they were in good hands. Looking forward to future stays with Linda.
Linda was the greatest dog sitter we could ever have asked for.Her passion for caring for dogs is very evident and shows immediately after you meet her.Her yard is huge so our dog Charlie, a Border Collie, had enough room to be run till exhausted.Linda watched Charlie for a full week while we were on vacation and texted me photos of Charlie everyday and we felt so at ease it made our vacation soooo! much better.I can't recommend her highly enough and we will be using her services every time we go anywhere!!

We left out dog with linda for a week long vacation and she did fantastic! We got daily updates and our dog seemed to be in great hands. Will definitely book with linda for our next vacation.
Our dog, Spencer had a great time and was very well treated. Linda is a wonderful host and truly cares about the dogs in her care.
Walker is always happy to get to Linda's and she takes excellent care of him. She sent me photos of him while he was there and when I arrived to pick him up she had made him a bandana!
Could not have a been better experience. Linda picked up and delivered Buddy which was ultra-convenient. Since this was our first time at Linda's my daughter and I stopped by Linda's house when we were nearby during the day. Buddy saw us, came over to say hi and then left. We were expecting a little separation anxiety but I guess Buddy was having too much fun to come home. Will definitely use Linda again.

This was our first time using dogvacay and we were very pleased! After visiting several homes it was pretty clear the boys would be best off with Linda. We just picked them up and it's very obvious they were well cared for and loved. Linda sent us updates daily with pictures and I'm sure the dogs felt like they were at a five star resort complete with a huge yard to play in and soft beds to relax on.
Just a month ago we placed them in a well respected kennel in the Doylestown area. We spent 80 a day per dog, they had the "ultimate"package. I can promise you the care they got from Linda far exceeded that ultimate package and it was a fraction of the cost!!

Our little boy clearly had such a good time at LInda's we felt bad taking him home. Linda kept us in touch with lots of photos of Pico playing and having quality time with Linda's own animals. And we know he was loved there. This was our first stay at this home, but we already know it will be a perfect home away from home for our dog. Thanks to Linda and her family!

We are very pleased with the care that Keeva, Angus, and Derby received during their stay with Linda M. and her family! A nice big yard to play in, and beds to sleep in (a special treat for them!) made our pooches very happy. Keeva has a medical condition which can be exacerbated by stressful situations, and boarding in an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar people ranks up there. But this did not happen. She obviously received her medications and was given plenty of attention. It was great getting emailed pictures of our gang too! Everyone came home happy! Thanks Linda and family!

Linda was so helpful watching our dog. Very informative and caring. She was awesome to work with. Highly recommend her!
This was Walker's 2nd stay w/ Linda and her family. He could not wait to get out of the car and into the house! Her son really dotes on Walker and he (Walker) seems very happy there. I couldn't be more pleased. Linda is so flexible and kind. A real find!

Linda was very kind and accommodating. She made sure Walker was very well cared for.
Once again, Koko came home happy and relaxed from her dog vacay! Thanks for sending pictures and thanks for a great weekend!
I cannot believe the care that Linda and her family take of our beloved, very elderly dog. They simply could not be better with her in any way. And she's also very easy to work with, setting up drop-off and pick-up etc.
Linda is the best! We have a very aged Alaskan Malamute and Linda gave her extra love and attention. She was super-easy to deal with - very flexible and helpful. Highly recommended!
Linda was great! She sent me pictures of Koko every couple of days. Linda welcomed Koko into her home and was very attentive to her: rubbing her belly, scratching her back, etc. I had complete confidence in her ability to care for Koko.
This is my third time leaving Macky with Linda and as always everything was perfect! He loves hanging out with her dog, Axle. Linda and her daughters treat my dog like one of their own.
Linda was fantastic with Bingo. Bingo is a high energy dog and Linda played fetch with Bingo enough to tire her out.
Linda and her family are wonderful with all the dogs. They take care of each dog with lots of love. My dogs were very happy with her and so was I. I'm getting ready to take them back again!
Linda is so sweet and her whole family showed our dogs so much love! She took great care of them and even went above and beyond by brushing our fluffy puppies! You can tell that she really does love each and every dog she takes care of.
Linda has cared for Jersey in the past and we have found her very caring. Jersey seems comfortable in her care. Thanks, Linda!
Linda and her daughters were great with Macky. They made him feel very welcomed. Macky absolutely loves their dog Axle. It was comforting to know that he had the run of their fenced in yard for playtime and was even lucky enough to sneak in bed with one of Linda's daughters at night.

Linda took great care of my two large dogs, one of whom needs oral medication twice per day. He's a GSD with high drive, and she kept him busy in her big backyard chasing balls and running around.

Both our pups came back tired and happy, and we will certainly be visiting Linda again the next time we go out of town -- highly recommend A+++ !!!

Linda is awesome! She treated my puppy as though she was a member of her own family. From the first time I met Linda at the meet & greet, I felt comfortable and confident about leaving my pet with her. Angel had a great time over the weekend hanging out with Axel. Her home is extremely pet friendly and she has a great yard! I highly recommend Linda to everyone!!

Linda and her family did a great job with our pets. Zoey and Nytro were well treated. Thanks again, Joe and Jan
Taffy had a great time! She had some fun roommates and enjoyed living in the house instead of a kennel. Linda was a pleasure to deal with and she had a very dog-friendly home.
Linda was very nice. She accepted our dog in her home and was very loving. Our husky didn't want to come home. Charla S.
She took very good care of them. It is obvious they enjoyed staying with her and had a positive experience. Linda and her family love dogs and it shows in their treatment of them. Linda was very accessible and always took the time to answer our calls and give a fully detailed report on the pups.

Linda and her family were awesome.They treated Griffin like one of their own.It was a wonderful day for him.
Linda and her daughter were warm, loving hosts for my two dogs, Bruno and Winnie. It's clear that they really love dogs. Linda's guests dogs are allowed everywhere, so they can find their own comfort spots--which I'm sure Bruno appreciated, because he is definitely a sofa dog. The yard is huge and fenced, which was great for my young, high-energy whippet, who needs to go crazy at least once a day. She also had a great time playing with Linda's dog Axl. I saw the video evidence!

I wholeheartedly recommend Linda and her family. In fact, I hope my pups can visit them again next month!

Hi Linda was great and took great care of my two dogs Fergus and Shiloh.
Linda and her family are obviously huge dog lovers. Pandora came home happy and well cared for. So much better than some impersonal kennel.
Linda went above and beyond with our dog. Our dog was unfortunately sick while we were away, and Linda treated her as well as one of her own. We really appreciate it! Linda is flexible and a very caring care-giver. Would definitely recommend her service!

Linda is very nice and the two dogs are so cute.
Linda is great and Cocoa loved it there. She is very flexible and I felt very comfortable leaving cocoa with her. She loved him just as if it was her dog and is very accomodating.
This is the 2nd time we have had our dog stay with Linda. Jersey was excited when we took her to Linda's home. We are very happy with the care our dog receives. Cathy
Linda and her family are huge dog lovers. From the initial Meet and Greet I knew Ollie was going to be in good hands. Her home is completely dog friendly including a large fenced in back yard. She also took him to a dog park, sent me photos and was genuinely sad to see him go. I highly recommend her.

Linda was great to work with. I needed to board my dog together with my mother's dog and Linda could not have been more flexible in working around both dogs and our travel schedule. Even though she has a big fenced in yard - she still took the dogs to the dog park. She's an obvious pet lover and it shows in her work. Would definitely board with Linda again.

Linda was a great sitter for our dog. She was attentive to our needs and very caring. She sent me updates on our dog. We were very pleased.
Linda was great! Her family and her home are wonderful for dogs. She even took my dog to the dog park. I appreciate her loving care of him.
