About Linda

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Linda and I bet you are looking for a pet provider! I cannot remember ever NOT having a pet in my home. All my life, some have been rabbits, iguanas, mice, snakes, gerbils, hamsters, ferrets, dogs, cats, horses, just about every kind of pet you could want. As far as professionally, I have been a pet care provider for 13 years. I have a year of vet tech school, which includes first aid and pet CPR. I have volunteered at the Wichita Kansas Humane Society in the surgical department as well as been a foster parent to pets that have needed more specialized care in my home. Up until very recently, I had 3 dogs, but a month ago I lost my little part Dachshund, part Maltese dog Princess to old age. She was 15. I also have a Yorkshire Terrier, her name is Zoey and she is 2 years old. Then theres my top dog Hootie. Hootie is part Carin Terrier and part Lhasa Apso and he is 16. Most generally, you will find that I am pretty flexible and have even taken last minute appointments. The farthest pet sitting job I've had was Virginia Beach, Virginia to set with a Shih Tzu for a month while his parents traveled abroad . I've never met an animal I didn't like. I have a backround check for you to view and references upon request. So, while you have to go away, let me come and stay, and I will help your pet pass the time away!

Linda did a great job. Will use her again
This is a continuation of our previous review. Not only did Linda take wonderful care of our collie, Nana & our two cats....she was able to avert a household disaster for us... Our water heater sprung a leak & needed to be replaced. She noticed the issue right away and got in touch with our family. What could have been real mess when we got home was fixed right away! Thanks so much, Linda! We've already scheduled her for our next trip. :)

Linda did a fabulous job taking care of our collie, Nana. Nana was happy, our home looked amazing and we are thrilled. We thoroughly recommend Linda to care for your pets while you're away!
Linda is very nice and very kind. Our Poms are so excited to see her when she arrives to sit with them.
