About Linda

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
DogMa's Pooch Palace is an in-home dog-boarding service hosted in the personal dwelling of founder Linda Armstrong, aka, the Top DogMa. Your fur baby will have the run of the house, access to a large backyard with a fence, daily walks (if you prefer), 24/7 love and attention, and a caring, loving guardian to monitor his or her every move and mood.

Linda, who has more than 10 years of experience working with (and fostering) rescue animals, devotes all of her attention to your special fur kid. And her two fun-loving, dog-friendly boxers, Bax and Bogey, understand how to behave around dogs of all sizes and temperaments. They know to be gentle with the little or young, and they understand that seniors sometimes need a little space. :-) (Linda has been boarding dogs for roughly 5 years.)

My husband and I spent months trying to find a sitter who would be patient and understanding with our shy baby, Olive. Olive struggles when meeting new people and deals with a lot of anxiety, so finding a place to board her over the holidays was a total nightmare. We found Linda in January and were able to book a meet-and-greet a few weeks later. Linda was incredibly flexible and communicative, and I felt confident moving forward. Her experience with dogs was obvious from the moment we arrived. Olive was able to (mostly) relax without Linda putting any pressure on her. She went straight for the bin of toys Linda has available for her guests and her boys, Baxter and Bogey. We left the meet-and-greet feeling so relieved. Since then, Olive has spent several days with Linda, and we are so thankful that she understands our slightly neurotic pup. She sent us pictures and text messages every day during our trip and was very open and honest about how Olive was doing. She was comfortable giving Olive her epilepsy medication every 12 hours and did her best to make Olive feel right at home. Olive came home wiped out in a good way, and we hope to board with Linda again in the future. It will take some time for Olive to be 100% comfortable with a sitter, but we have no doubt that Linda gave Olive the best experience possible. Thanks so much!
Linda was very responsive and was great with my puppy. Drop off was super smooth and easy. When I picked up Maggie, she was obviously tired and seemed like she had a fun time playing with Linda's dogs. I highly recommend Linda as a dog sitter.
This was the first time I have left Daisy with anyone for over 24 hours and since the second I dropped Daisy off, I knew she was in good hands. Linda kept me updated with pictures and videos, which showed how happy Daisy was. Linda, thank you so much for taking care of Daisy.
My dogs had a fabulous vacation at Linda's house. She sent me daily pictures and texts and there was no doubt in my mind that they were having fun!! Linda is very kind and considerate and I felt like my dogs were very well cared for and I would have no reservations about leaving them with her again.
We loved Linda and plan to leave our furbaby with her again in the future. She stayed in touch with us and sent photos of the fun our dog was having. It was great to know "Molly" was happy and well cared for!
Linda is wonderful! She is an amazing caregiver and our pups are always so happy after their time with her.
My husband and I planned a trip last minute (as in planned Sunday morning to leave Sunday afternoon), but then I found out that our boarding kennel doesn't accept drop offs on Sundays. That's when I found Linda on Dog Vacay and wow. . . I will NEVER take my puppy back to a kennel. Linda emailed me back quickly and had a last minute opening for Lady to go stay with her while we were gone. I'm pretty sure Lady didn't want to come home! Linda was very attentive and sent me numerous texts and updates with pictures. Linda's fur babies were great for Lady to socialize with other dogs. I would recommend Linda to ANYONE who wants their dog to be loved like they would at home.
We love Linda! My dogs had a wonderful week and were very well taken of. Max and Princess already miss her and hubby and Bax and Bogey.
Linda was great from the beginning! I could tell by the questions she asked that she has a passion for dogs. I got regular updates from her including pictures of Butch and Bailey. Whenever I checked in with Linda to see how they were doing, she always responded promptly. I felt confident that my dogs were in good hands. She had some cuddle time with my Bailey and played Butch's silly games with him. These are things she had no knowledge of in advance but picked up on because she was paying attention to their needs.
Our dog Bernie had a great time at Linda's house! Bernie sent photos and video during his stay, keeping us posted on his vacation. He enjoyed squirrel watching, walks, play time and lots of relaxing naps. Bernie's looking forward to his next stay with Linda and her dogs Bogie & Baxter.
Dog lover!
Linda is great ! ! I received daily reports and pictures of my dogs. As long as Linda is available, I will never board my dogs anywhere else.
Linda was great. Dogs had a great time, and probably want to go back!
Wow! We love Linda! She took great care of my furry kids. They had a great time (I saw lots of pics). We will use Linda in the future and we highly recommed her services.
