About Linda

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dog will accompany myself and my GSD on daily walks at 8 A.M and another at 2 P.M. The walk includes a visit to the lake for a swim and up the excisting trail. The walk times are 45 minutes to 1 hour.

On the walk your dog can be on or off leash. (To be determined by myself) Then home for breakfast and a well deserved nap. Your dog has access up a ramp through the dog door into their 8x24ft. condo, where their crates are, fresh water and feeding takes place. The condo is located off the kitchen. They are free to come and go as they please into my 2 acre yard which is fully enclosed with 6 foot high chain linked fence.
Your dog is also welcome inside my home, but they must be house trained.
The rate is for 24 hours, any over time will be charged accordingly.
I accept only 1 dog at a time.

Thank you

Linda always provides great care.
My first time using DogVacay and it was a wonderful experience. I have a rescue dog with lots of "issues"... Linda was outstanding with her - and me. The update messages and photos gave me peace of mind from day one and allowed me to have a great vacation knowing my dog was getting individualized and experienced care. I will recommend this site and Linda to everyone I know. Thank you !!!!!
Harley had a blast with Linda playing in the snow and hanging out. Thank you for taking care of our loving Harley while we were away. The pictures that you emailed us was very much appreciated.
Our two Basset hounds had a wonderful stay with Linda. Linda walked the dogs and provided individualized attention to Rupert and Matilda. The daily pictures and notes were priceless and let us know what everyone was up to. Linda's love for dogs is evident and she treated Rupert and Matilda as her own. We will definitely send our two back!

Linda, the dogs came home relaxed and exhausted from all of the fun they had. I can tell you spent a lot of time with them and looked after them like they were your own. The pictures and emails made us feel so at ease while we were away. Thank you so much.
Jesse is always relaxed and well cared for.
Linda provided excellent care for our dog Simba during our absence. She provided a comfortable home for Simba with lots of play time and interaction. It it of our opinion that she is a genuinely caring dog person with the best interests in mind for the animals she cares for. We would not hesitate to use Linda's service in the future and we're quite sure Simba would be very pleased too!
Lily had a great time here! I enjoyed the daily updates and Linda has an obvious love for dogs.
As always, Harley always feels at home with Linda.
Linda definitely loves dogs and maintained the spoiled life of my Jesse. I will never return to traditional kennels. Will use dog vacay for all my future needs. Thanks so much Linda, and the process way very easy.
Our dog Henry had the best dog vacay imaginable when he got to stay over at Linda's. We will continue to send Henry to Linda’s in the future and will refer her to everyone we know who requires dog sitting in the future.
Linda and her husband were very kind people and wonderful with our dog. He had his very own doggy condo, a huge well kept yard to play in, his own private entrance/exit, toys, a bed, a kennel, and a huge bone waiting for him when he arrived…he was spoiled!
Linda was able and willing to take care of Henry in the ways we requested, making us very comfortable leaving our dog with her. She even went out of her way for us by dropping our dog off at the end of his stay...wow! Now that is 5 star service!!
Henry got to go on LOTS of off leash walks and had lots of cuddle time and relaxing time in their lovely home. We received pictures of a very happy dog almost on a daily basis through email which made us so happy to see him enjoying himself.

If my dog is not at home with my husband and I – the next perfect place for him is positively at Lindas.
Thank you so much, Padme came home happy and relaxed. She was very well cared for, can hardly wait to go back!
Thanks again for taking in Harley especially when it was last minute. We're very happy to know that he's always in good hands.
Linda was fantastic! We were 100% confident leaving our beloved Piper with Linda. She cared for her like her own, while still enforcing rules and boundaries. It was also great to receive the picture updates. Would highly recommend!
Linda was wonderful to Daisee. Their home is a dream for our dog-with a massive back yard and two walks daily. Daisee saw her first moose on her vacation! When we dropped Daisee off she was really excited. She loves it here. Highly recommended.
I enjoyed receiving pictures taken by Linda of Harley. It reassures me that he's doing well and having lots of fun.
Once again....what a pleasure to have Linda watch our beloved dog, Harley. He's so excited and so wiped out because of all the fun he's had...thanks again!
Harley truly enjoyed himself. He was so tired when he came home that he just rested. Linda was so great with him and Harley was very excited to meet new friends. We believe that Harley was in great hands and would use Linda's dog sitting service again. Thanks Linda.
