About Linda

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a married, semi-retired couple, in our 60s. During our time together we have had the pleasure of owning mutts, Dachshunds, a Vizsla and 3 Beagles (Beagles were all at the same time!)

We lost our last Beagle February 2015, and miss our dog(s) very much. At the same time enjoy our new found freedom.

Figured this site would be like being grandparents... have a dog for a day or two ( or longer ) then return the happy pet back to it's owner(s).

We offer a doggie door in our kitchen which lets out to a small fenced-in yard consisting of concrete, gravel and grass.

Our home is across the street from a really nice county park, which is just great for taking dogs for a walk once or twice a day, weather permitting.

We ONLY board 1 owner's pet(s) at a time!

Look forward to hearing from you...

Linda and Steve were awesome! We are so happy we found them and would highly recommend them. Our Cooper is used to me being home all day as I work from home and demands a lot of attention, and boy did he get it with them! No more guilt when I go away on vacation. So glad I found them and this website!
Linda and Steve are the best! They took such great care of our little girl. They are true dog lovers and understand various dog behaviors! We feel so lucky to have such a great loving home for our dog when we are away!
Linda and Steve were a terrific host family for our Chocolate, an older dog with special needs. He had a great time with them and will come back to them for our next vacation.
Linda & Steve are truly such an amazing couple! They watched Lily on a same day notice and keep me worry free all day. They kept her entertained and she was so excited before she even got out of the car. They say dogs can tell if a person is good or not and let me tell you that Lily welcomed them with excitement and a waggling tail the very moment she met them. They are a charming couple with a great house and they absolutely love animals. She was so happy and I was so relieved. I will definitely book again without hesitation because my Lily loves them and I do to! Definitely a great experience.
Linda and Steve are simply the best! They accommodated every need of our dog. My dog was happy when she first got there and happy when we picked her up. They sent us pictures and videos during her stay. We couldn't be happier with Linda and Steve!
We are overjoyed to have found Linda and Steve!! From our meet and greet through our vacation, we could not have asked for better hosts. Bentley has become used to being cared for by family whenever we have had to leave him behind in the past, and Linda and Steve instantly made him feel like family -- us too for that matter! It is very apparent that they are pet lovers, and genuinely enjoy their guest pets. They give lots of attention and do all they can to make sure their guest pets feel loved, safe, and secure. Equally as important, Linda and Steve are very in tune with what is important to pet parents. They were very responsive to all correspondence/questions leading up to Bentley's stay, and during our trip, sent updates each day about how he was doing, what they did that day, and all the fun they had. We especially loved that they sent photos with each update too. The doggie cam and doggie door are both added bonuses! Without hesitation, we recommend Linda and Steve to anyone looking for pet care, and we will definitely book with them again in the future.
Linda and Steve are a terrific sitters! It was so nice of them to watch Cookie on a short notice last weekend. They're so loving and caring hosts. My Cookie loves to be with them and her tails wagging with excitement when she comes for overnight stay. We highly recommend them!
Linda and Steve are wonderful sitters. They took great care of Suki. When picking her up after 3 days we could tell they were very loving and she was very comfortable with them. They have a secure fenced in area plus she was taken to a nearby park for frequent walks. Suki will be back!
Linda and Steve were "ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!" They took care of Pumpkin as if she were theirs~ We were sent pictures of Pumpkin at the park, going to the post office, playing in the snow, etc.~ Simply fabulous. While they no longer have a dog, they had dogs all of their lives and love dogs. (important) They also had a fenced in yard (plus) and a doggie door (double plus). More importantly they adored our little girl and we know that we made the right decision in our selection of Linda and Steve! I highly recommend them and they made Pumpkin feel like a part of their family!
Linda and her husband made me and my dog feel at home once we walked in the door. The house is immaculate and inviting. I will absolutely use Linda to dog-sit again and recommend her to anybody that asks!! The DOG BED WEB CAM was very cool!
If Linda heard me calling Darla thru the voice feature of the camera... she would make sure DARLA was ready for her "close up camera shot"! Nice touch.
Linda and Steve were such great hosts to our pup, Madi. They treated her like a member of their family- playing with her, taking her on walks, giving her cuddles, but it also seems they maintained our rules for her. The yard was fully gated, which, along with the doggie door they taught her to use, gave Madi the freedom to play outside anytime.

Another great feature- they have a camera set up so we could check on our pup using an app on our phone. We could even talk to her!

Madi had such a good time, she didn't want to leave. It was great to feel comfortable leaving our baby some place we know she will be safe and loved! We will definitely be coming back.
