About Lynette

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! We are a fun loving family that always has a place in our home for animals. We have about 3/4 acres of fenced in yard on the edge of a 5 acre wildlife preserve that the dogs LOVE to run and play in. We have 2 labs that get along with everyone from Teacup Yorkies to Rottweilers and 2 cats that we have hand raised since they were 2 weeks old. They think they are dogs!! I started doing this for my real estate clients that were new to town and we realized that we love spoiling other peoples puppies along with our own. We have 5 kids 13, 15, 17, 18 and 23 that the dogs always love getting the extra attention from and, I work from home. We understand that all of our pets are family and treat them and love them as family. Whether it be long walks, playing fetch or frisbee or just snuggling on the couch the dogs always leave here happy!

Typical Schedule:

6AM Wake Up and go outside to go potty
6:30 Breakfast
7AM Back Outside then Naps and Playtime inside
11AM Treats and Outside Playtime
3PM Outside Playtime Treat
6:30 Dinnertime
7PM Outside Playtime
10PM Outside Before Bed Treat

They also go out more times than this and go for walks around 5 PM most of the time and definately if needed.

Lyn is a fantastic pet sitter. She has been dog sitting for her real estate clients for years and has just recently joined Dogvacay with that wealth of experience.

Her home is large and the enormous fenced back yard would be a treat for any pup that comes to visit. The two house dogs, both labs, are sweet as can be and will make your pup feel right at home.

With five (older) kids at home there is lots of love and help for the pups and they would rarely be alone. Even Lyn herself works from her home and is rarely away for more than a few hours at a time, making for maximum time with your pup. Lyn also makes her own all natural dog treats to spoil your pup with!

Lynette was great. Cassie had a great time.
My pup had fun and definitely got her work-out in! Lynn and her family were super sweet to both of us and sent awesome pics too.
Lynette is a cheerful person who warmly welcomed my beagle Patrick to her home. He is a little quiet, but there were many other dogs to meet. Patrick definitely enjoyed his doggy vacay at Lynette's place.
Lynn took great care of Lilly! Loved getting photo updates all day. Thanks again!
We have used Lynette several times and absolutely adore her. She treats our dog Bow Wow as a member of her family and gives him lots of attention. On our way to drop off Bow Wow with Lynette, he gets so excited when we approach her house, he starts shaking uncontrollable and whining because he is so anxious to get in! Once we get into the house, he doesn't even look back....it's a great feeling to know your little one is in such good hands! During our trip, Lynette sends great activity photos and videos with great commentary. She is so personable! After Bow Wow's visit, he is so exhausted....more proof of the fun he had with Lynette and her family. Thanks Lynette!!!

Our dogs came home exhausted and happy! Lynette has a large yard for them to run and play and seems to really care for her pets.
Lynette was flexible and very accommodating. She made my dog feel calm and at home. I will be using Lynette's services more in the future!
Lynette was wonderful! She sent us several updates a day, including lots of photos. It put us at such ease to know our dog was having so much fun! She also let us know that our dog was eating his food normally, as we had warned her that he may not eat the first day we left. She even told us how she could put cottage cheese or other things in his food to encourage him to eat just in case.

We are so thrilled with Lynette and can't wait to make another booking for our next trip!

Our 2 Bostons Minerva and Fiona just love visiting Lynette and family during the day when we have to work at the office!
Lynette and her family were phenomenal! Our French Bulldog was so well-treated and looked after during our trip. Lynette sent updates, pictures and videos. She was so attentive with our dog and we genuinely enjoyed her detailed messages.This was the first time we've used Lynette, but it certainly won't be the last. Attentive, respectful, and professional, Lynette has a great demeanor and you can tell she loves dogs immediately. We'll definitely be using her again next time we're out of town. Thanks Lynette!!!

We love having our dog stay with Lynette who has a huge yard for the dogs to play in! She is friendly and easy to work with and sends updates periodically during the vacay. We would absolutely recommend Lynette!
Thanks so much for taking care of Sam! The picture updates were great and we're sure she got lots of love and play time from you and your family, and your own dogs!
Lyn and her family were outstanding hosts of my little Hamilton while I was on vacation, guiding the socialization of my little 4lb shih tzu puppy with several large dogs, and falling in love with him in the process. :) He went from trembling to stealing the big dogs' toys! She sent regular updates with photos and funny stories, and I could not have asked for better or more capable caretaking of my puppy. Thank you so very much!

Jack seemed very happy in Lynette's care and surely appreciated her letting him sleep in her bed! Lynette sent us several pictures of Jack during our short vacation, and that made us very reassured.
Whenever we bring our dogs to Lynn's, they come home exhausted! Exactly what you need in a doggy daycare.
My dog had a great experience. It was great big dog playdate!
Great job. Texted updates and photos...
Lynette was awesome! She took such good care of our doggie and sent lots of pictures. I think he enjoyed his time outside in her large fenced in yard because he slept great when we brought him home. She was super accommodating and flexible. I will definitely call on Lynette again!

Lynette was great! Constantly sending us pictures of Ziggy having a great time during his vacation!
We were very pleased with our dog's stay with Lynette B. We found Lynette to be very knowledgeable and nurturing to our dog. We forgot an item and went the next day to pick it up with our dog. He was very happy to see Lynette and the other dogs. That is a very positive indication that he was happy there.

Lynette took wonderful care of our pup Leo, he had plenty of great friends to play with and we received photo updates of him daily. He looked like he was having a blast & perfectly at home in every single picture. Thanks Lynette, can't wait to bring Leo back to stay with you again!

Excellent host! Lynette is very responsive and accommodating. If your dog likes a doggie day care environment they'll LOVE staying at Lynettes. She had several other dogs there when my two pups stayed with her and they loved having playmates and friends. I have an escape artist dog so I am always worried about folks fences-she's made sure there are no gaps or holes in fence so I felt comfortable that my dog wouldn't escape. I would highly recommend.

We were excited that Lynette had openings to take our 2 Bostons. We planned a last min trip and she took great care of them and updated us with photos. This is the first place we book when we can not bring them with us.

My puppy had such great fun! I loved seeing the pictures of him romping in the yard with his playmates. Lynette was also very understanding and accommodating as y travel plans shifted at the last minute. It was a comfort to know we were in such good hands.

Lynette was wonderful in taking care of our 10 month old, 60 lb. puppy Izzy. She sent photo updates almost daily, and communicated several times with positive notes to let us know that Izzy was doing well, having fun, and happy. Lynette was very accommodating in letting us drop off early (8:00 am) and pick up late (10:00 pm). Just a great first experience; we will definitely be bringing Izzy back to stay with Lynette! Thank you!!!

Remember your childhood sleepovers...having tons of fun, super excited telling your parents about everything you did, coming home and falling asleep because you had so much fun the night before? Lynette's is like a doggy sleepover! Honey had a lot of fun! She was in great spirits when we picked her up. She wasn't trying to beat me to the door to leave. Honey got home and crashed for the evening. :) I would certainly recommend Lynette!!

Lynette was amazing. This was my first time leaving my sweet baby with anyone else. She was super nice and made the whole thing completely painless. She touched base halfway through the day to let me know he was doing great and sent pictures as well. I will definitely send my baby back to Lynette :)

We rescued our golden, Scarlett, just two months before we had to go away for a week. We were really concerned about leaving her, as we didn't know what to expect. Lynette and her family were wonderful to Scarlett, sending photos and letting us know every day how she was doing. It really helped to allay our fears. After returning, I was able to learn so much that we didn't know before about Scarlett from Lynette. It was extremely helpful. We now know what kind of toys and bed she likes and that she would probably love to go to the dog park!
We have no hesitation about recommending Lynette wholeheartedly.

Lynette took fantastic care of my munchkin. She sent a picture along with a message everyday. It was my first time leaving my dog with anybody and was very nervous doing so. Lynette was very kind. When I met her and saw where my dog would be staying and saw that there were other dogs staying at the same time I felt very comfortable leaving her there. I will defiantly be leaving my dog with Lynette in the future.

Ollie loved your big back yard and I loved that you offer the kind of running space he has at home. He was a happy camper!
my dogs absolutely love staying at Lynette's place. This is our go to place if we need in home daycare or in home boarding.
Sadie had a great time. We got lots of lovely updates from Lynette and my pup slept the whole next day after coming home :)
This was my dogs first experience away and she had the time of her life! Lynette was great and loved my dog like her own, she sent pictures and updates daily. My dog can't wait to return!
My dog loved it at Lynette's house. The yard is perfect and he had lots of playmates. I'll definitely be bringing him back.
Lynette is fantastic! She loves dogs and did a great job with our Great Dane, Shannon. Her house has a huge fenced-in yard and the dogs get tons of play time. She sent pictures and updates of Shannon, which I looked forward to everyday while we were gone. Our dog was well cared for, and we will gladly work with Lynette again.

Lynette and her family have been fantastic hosts to my boy Aidan. He gets excited the very moment he realizes where he is, and that is always a comfort to me. I know he is cared for and will have a great time.
Our pup bubba had a great time with Lynette. You can tell the entire family loves dogs! We got lots of text updates and she was very easy to work with on drop off and pick up times. Bubba has been sleeping all day since we got back so I know he was having a great time and given lots of exercise. We would definitely have Bubbba stay there again anytime!

Lynette was simply wonderful. She watched our dog all day and into the night and had very good communication via cell phone calling and texting and even sent us a picture to see how he was doing int he middle of the day! Lambeau had an awesome healthy happy day and I couldn't ask for more.

We love Lynette and her family! They always take such good care of our pup! Highly recommend her.
This is my second time using Lynette and she's great! She is quick to respond to requests, sends adorable pic and text updates, and really takes the time to make sure your dogs have fun. I will not hesitate to use her again. She's worth the money for sure.

Lynette was great! My dog and her dogs got along great. She also sent us lots of great pics of my dog having a blast!
I had to stay an extra day at my conference which was not a problem for Lynette. Thanks so much for caring so well for my dog!!
Lynette and her family were absolutely wonderful to my Guinness. I received updates on how he was doing along with pictures which allowed me to feel great comfort while away on business. They show true affection to the dogs. Highly recommend!
We were so lucky to Find Lynette was so close to where we live!!! We had to attend a wedding and brought a new puppy into our house 3 months before the wedding plans. She watched our Puppy Boston Minerva and our 3 year old Boston Fiona. We loved the photo updates and the laid back meet and greet. Anytime we need to travel without our girls I will first head to dogvacay and Lynette for booking! Thanks Again for everything Lynette and Family!!! Matt Maggie Fiona and Minerva

Couldn't have been happier with Lynette's services. My dogs loved her!
Newton goes to daycare every day so I was looking for a situation where you would have dogs to play with. He had a great time with their labs in their large yard. But the unexpected niceness was how much part of the family he was. He hung with them in the family areas and they sent me a bunch of good pictures. They clearly know a lot about dogs and love dogs as well. I have no reservations about recommending them.

Lynette and her family were better than we could have imagined. We left our dogs with her for 3 days and constantly received photos and detailed updates. Between Lynnette and her 4 other family members, there was always someone around. Our dogs were allowed outside anytime they pleased. She had two wonderful labs that also kept our pups company. I cannot say enough good things about her! I felt like we left our pups with family members. They were treated so well and came home with tails a waggin'! We will absolutely be using her again! Thanks Lynette! You are the best!

Lyn and her family were so wonderful with me and my pet. It was our first dog vacay experience. Lyn immediately put me and my pet at ease. She was friendly, and patient with us both. I was able to stay as long as I needed to when Aidan was checked in. Lyn provided daily updates and photos. Aidan was happy when I left him and seemed to fit right in with the family and their pack of beautiful pets. I left Aidan feeling good and picked him up even happier. When I picked him up his tail was up high, he looked happy and he was having a ball with his new family. I strongly recommend this host. It truly is doggy Disneyland! Thank you Lyn and your family.

Great experience, our chocolate lab Charlie Brown had a great time! Definitely recommend to others who have a dog that loves to run and play, Lynette has a huge yard!
Lynette and her family were so great to my shy guy! He easily seemed to find his place with her two labs and came home tired but happy. Lynette was so accommodating with pick ups/drop offs and was easy to communicate with. It was easy to see that Lynette and her whole family are true dog lovers :)

Our dog stayed with lynette and her pack for a whole day whilst my husband and I attended an all day conference. She was very flexible with our drop off and pick up times and Riggins came back pooped after his day away. We will definitely be using Lynette again.

Thanks!

Our dog, Patton, loved his vacation at Lynette's house! He was having a ball the whole time and it was so nice to be gone and know that he is happy and safe! I'll definitely use Lynette again when we travel! I would highly recommend her!
My 4 month old labrador enjoyed a wonderful week with Lynn and her family. Lynn was flexible with us and provided an early a.m. drop-off for daycare which was very important to us. We received precious pictures during her stay which showed her sleeping next to and on top of one of Lynn's dogs. She came home happy, tired and always wanted to go back! Thank you Lynn and family; we will try to secure additional dates in the near future.

Lynette was awesome! She took both my dogs last minute and was very flexible and responsive to messages. They had a great time. Will use her again
Lynette and her family were amazing! They loved our boys, Cash and Charlie, like their own! We received pictures and updates during our trip. We highly recommend their services and greatly appreciate all they did for our family!
Barley had a great time with Lynette. She must have played hard with her and her dogs because she slept all day. Will definitely contact Lynette again.
Our pet had an absolutely wonderful time with Lynette and her pack :). There's nothing else we could hope for. Keep it up.
