About Lynda

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We live in a peaceful, rural setting and like to walk our dog, Charlie every day. He enjoys having friends over and we would welcome your dog with open arms too. We have had dogs as pets for many years and just love them. We would take good care of your special friend and treat him/her like a member of the family. Your pup will have the run of our house so we do ask that he/she respects our home and is fully house-trained.

Linda was WONDERFUL. She took excellent care of our dog, Fitzie. She saw that he got plenty of exercise and warm, loving care. On several occasions she sent pictures of our dog having fun with her own. We were always confident Fitzie was well cared for and even perhaps his time with Linda was a vacation for him! We could not ask more of our pet sitter and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants the best possible home-away-from-home for their dog. She is the best.

Our Golden Retriever puppy had a wonderful stay with Lynda. She was wonderful about walking her and letting her play with her mature Golden. Her dog was very excited to have a friend visiting. Lynda sent us four great pictures of our pup and we new we could relax and she was being well cared for in her beautiful home.

We have never considered boarding our dogs before because of the image of them being caged/crated without the love and attention that they are use to. How Brilliant is THIS ... the worry about planning a vacation is resolved. Lynda is very special and her attention to detail is outstanding. Such peace of mind and our girls had a blast.

It is a great comfort having my dog stay with Lynda (and Charlie the dog) when we're away. She sends frequent emails with pictures and it is very nice to know our dog is cared for so well. It is impossible to overstate how much we prefer you over a standard kennel Lynda! Thanks, Kevin

Couldn't be happier with Lynda. Lily is happy to go there and is very well taken care of...maybe a bit spoiled! :) Will definitely have her stay there again!
I stayed with Lynda and her hubby who took very good care of me with food, walks and the best was making new friends with Charlie and Dodger.
Lynda and Dave are so cool, when i met them i knew my owner liked them and were at home leaving me. They even sent pictures to show my mom that i was having fun... Will definitely like to go back again if my owners have to go away. Shamus and Cheryl /Bill

Fantastic love for Acer, hate to admit it but more attention than we can even possibly provide at home!!!!
Lynda and Dave are the best! This is the second season we have been leaving our dog with them on weekends all season and they are so accommodating. It's a great feeling when you see your dogs tail wag when you pull up to their house! :)
Lynda is absolutely wonderful. My dog is a shy girl and within minutes of our arrival, she was letting Lynda pet her - unprecedented! Lynda provided great updates and I could tell my little one was having a great time. I will definitely board with her next time I am in the area! Fantastic!

Lynda took great care of my most nervous dog Cleo, she had never been boarded in all of her 11yrs, but after our meet and greet I felt very comfortable leaving her with Lynda and Charlie. I got updates each day and it was good to hear she was getting some good exercise while she was there. She had become lame over winter and wasn't wanting to walk much but since her stay with Lynda she continues to want to walk more than she had before. And i know she enjoyed having some companionship of other dogs since she has none at home. I will definitely be using Lynda's services again.

My wife and I are completely relieved and thrilled to have found a dogsitter like Lynda for longer stays away from home. We came to dread the kennel experience, especially for long stays. Lynda is kind enough to send photos via email while your away of our dog playing with hers (the lovable Charlie, who is quite the sport with my spastic young dog). Thank goodness for Doggyvacay and Lynda and Charlie!

We were so nervous about leaving our five year old dog Chloe with a stranger, as she has never spent a night away from us. But from the minute we met Lynda, David and Charlie we knew this was a special place. Our little dog could not have been more welcomed and loved. Chloe stayed for 9 nights with Lynda and family making new friends and terrorizing the local squirrels that frequent their bird feeder. Even though it was hard for us to be away from her, Lynda's daily pictures and updates (sent via text/email) made it so much easier to bear. We highly recommend Lynda and are so grateful to have found her!!

Lynda is the best! She's the one person I trust to treat my pooch as well as I would!
My 5 year old Labradoodle Dodger just stayed with Lynda for 5 nights. Dodger had a great time, and when I went to pick him up this morning he wasn't too excited about the idea of leaving Lynda's house. Lynda is obviously a dog lover and it seems that she gave Dodger the love and care he needed. Lynda sent us photos and video clips so we could see how well Dodger was doing. I would not hesitate to leave Dodger with Lynda again.

Lynda was wonderful! Would absolutely send my pup to her again.
Bodie had a wonderful time with David and Charlie. I plain on taking Bodie back with them the next time we go away. wonderful people to leave your dog with.
Fabulous as always. They take great care Of my dog every time we leave her!
I would give Lynda 50 stars if I could. When I went to pick up my pup Maggie from Lynda at days end, I could tell she had a nice day. She was not stressed out, she was even relaxed after the day's thunderstorm and I know she always enjoys spending time with other friendly dogs. Lynda emailed and texted me throughout the day with updates on how Maggie was doing so I knew she was safe and comfortable. Lynda took time to talk to me on the morning I brought Maggie to stay with her and she made sure she had all information on her so that she could care for her well. I was extremely pleased.

We have previously boarded our dog in a regular kennel with many other dogs and this year we found Lynda and her husband! Skyla is more relaxed and full of energy when we pick her up from Lynda's home. You can tell she has been well cared for and has the freedom of feeling as if she is in her "own home" while having a friend, Charlie, to play with. Skyla goes on long walks with Lynda and her husband which is great exercise for her. They are wonderful people and Skyla has stayed several times already this summer. We are so happy we found them!!

Lynda was very accommodating in caring for our older lab mix who is usually afraid of thunder and lightning. She is very docile and submissive and I was worried about leaving her for 8 days. Lynda sent us photo updates during our trip which helped us see that Belle was adjusting well to her new environs. Lynda was flexible about the pick up time since we were delayed by the shuttle arrival at the airport. After returning home we had some thunder and lightning the following night and Belle seemed unaffected! much to our surprise and delight. We are extremely pleased with Belle's new more relaxed attitude about the weather. We didn't even have to give her a chill pill or use her thunder vest!! Maybe being with 2 other dogs who were less anxious was helpful? but I really appreciated the special care Lynda provided especially on the 4th of July. We will definitely be using Lynda again. Thanks so much.

This was Chase's first time away and I wouldn't bring him anywhere else! Lynda was so considerate and responded to all of my emails. She sent me a photo of Chase snuggling with her and eased my worries. If you love your dog Lynda will love him. If i ever need a sitter again I will be calling Lynda - I would have given them 10 stars if I could

What a wonderful experience! This was my first time using Dogvacay.

Linda was wonderful. I was quite nervous because my 7 month old lab/border collie is a handful. I wasn't so worried about the dog but I was worried about how naughty he would be for Linda. He had not been around dogs before so I was afraid he would be aggressive.

Linda was so great! As soon as we arrived she helped us understand how to introduce our Dog to other dogs. She was amazingly patient and kind. When we picked up our dog he was very happy and enjoyed playing with the other dogs. He did have one little piddle accident in her home but she didn't seem upset by that.

If I ever get that way again I will definitely give her a call.

My husband is convinced she is a professional dog trainer.

Thank you, thank you! She allowed us some time with family on our vacation!

Lynda is a natural with dogs! We had to leave Banjo for two nights and he had a wonderful time. The beautiful country setting is perfect for dogs and humans, with a lovely yard to play in, and lovely country road for long walks. Thank you Lynda and Dave for taking such good care of our little guy and for keeping us up to date with pics of his "vacation"!

Lynda's the best. We know she takes great care of our favorite, furry family member!
This was Acer's 1st time meeting owner David and his pal Charlie. Boy did they hit it off well and Acer had a wonderful time going on walks in this beautiful part of New Hampshire. The host was so receptive to Acer's special food needs and was just like I had never left when I came to pick him up, Acer was given all the attention this 100lb lap dog needs.

This was Acer's 2nd stay, what amazing hosts as he certainly enjoyed his play time with Charlie and walks with David. Amazing and friendly owners, can't say enough good things about your care of Acer.
Lynda (with help from her husband and Charlie her resident Golden Retriever) were great hosts for Keifer and Red while we were on vacation. Lot's of Snow, Sleet and Frigid Temps were no match as the dogs were treated to daily walks and quality ball playing time in the yard. Big thanks for e-mailing pictures taken during our trip, they were a great treat to see while we were away and missing the furry rascals.
Will be sure to come back again if we need to be away.

This was Joey's second stay with Lynda and her pal Charlie. Once again, it was a fantastic experience. Lynda is dependable, trustworthy and takes excellent care of her furry guests. Joey had a great time there and was so excited when we arrived to drop him off. That is the best sign that he enjoys his time there. I highly recommend Lynda's services.

I highly recommend Lynda and her sweet dog Charlie as a vacation spot for your furry friend. Our dog Joey stayed with Lynda for 6 days and during that time I received updates and photos on his excursions. She lives near a stream and wooded area, perfect for morning walks and she has a grassy backyard for throwing balls around. Joey was very happy during his stay and I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my dog was in great hands.

This was our first time using this service and Lynda was fantastic. She was accommodating with our plans to drop her off and pick her up, answered the phone every time I called and even took pictures. Maddie had a great time and definitely did not want to leave her new friends behind. If we're ever in the area again I will definitely use Lynda again. Thank you!

Our pooch had a fantastic stay with Lynda! He was obviously well cared for and made to feel like a part of the family. We received a number of notes from Lynda while we were gone letting us know how he was doing, and she also supplied us with a bunch of great photos showing us what he was up to. We were very happy to have found Lynda through DogVacay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others.

Lynda and her dog Charlie took great care of my energetic girl, Laya. I think that Laya really loved to to play in Lynda's lovely back yard, go on long walks and even swim in the nearby lake! Lynda sent me updated throughout her stay with pictures of Laya and Charlie playing, lounging around and completely passed out! This really helped put my mind at ease while my sweat girl was away. I also had to change my drop off and pick up times last minuet and Lynda was very accommodating. I will definitely bring Laya to stay with Lynda again! Lynda, thanks so much for caring for my little girl. Look forward to seeing you and Charlie soon!
