About Lyndsay

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I are a young couple with 1 dog. We have a 9 year old Shih Tzu. Our dog is pretty laid back and sleeps the majority of the day. He will play with a frisbee or tug for a toy with another dog, but for the most part he ignores other dogs after an initial greeting. He has a HUGE toy box and is willing to share. We love to watch and cuddle with other calm and house trained dogs that get along with ours, and have done so for many friends and family. We can watch two small dogs, or one large dog. This allows us to provide the attention they deserve and ensure everyone gets lap time. We request a meeting with our dog outside of our home (normally a nearby park) to make sure everyone gets along and the dogs are comfortable with each other. I also recommend that you bring something that smells like home to make your dog comfortable like a blanket, toy, or a piece of your clothing that has been worn. We are not strangers to giving a dog pills, so that is not a problem if you don't mind your dog having a little piece of cheese or peanut butter with it. My mother is currently staying with us so she is home with the dogs all day when I or my husband are at work. Most dogs love to sleep on the bed with us, but if they are not allowed on your furniture, they can sleep on a dog bed in our room or can be crated in a separate room at night. I love to take photos, so I can send you pictures and updates of your furbaby. My general rule of thumb is at least 1-2 photos per day. I post most photos in the dogface app, but I may text some too you as well. If you are going out of the country and unable to receive texts, please let me know and I can email you updates or communicate through dogvacay messages. I also make and sell dog collars and bandanas on Etsy, and with your permission, could possibly use your dog as a model. If your dog stays with us, plan on them being spoiled rotten!

We have recently moved to West Columbia. Our yard is 3/4 fenced right now, so we go on walks around the block and around the backyard on leash for potty time. We have dog beds in our bedroom, my mothers bedroom, and the living room. We have a small crate that fits a dog up to 20-30lb if needed.

We have had a great deal of experience with elderly dogs, and are proficient in giving medications and shots.

Home Visits for CATS or REPTILES will be done by my mother. If you are interested in this, we can set up a meet and greet.

Alway flexible and sweet. I can tell Winston loves it there.
Lyndsay and her mom took great care of Riley while we went to the Gamecocks football game. So much so, Riley didn't really want to leave!
Lyndsay took great care of my dog! I know she got plenty of love and attention!
Gordy, my baby has anxiety when he's away from me and Darrell. I was really concerned that he would not do well for the four days we were gone. The moment we met Lyndsay and her mother, Charlyn, I knew Gordy was in great hands. They are very smart, loving and really do care about your dog! Lyndsay sent me pictures everyday and I was afraid I was texting her too much, but she never complained and told me to text anytime. When we picked Gordy up he had a cute little bow tie and his neck and was all ready to go. If you need a sitter, you will not be unhappy with these two! I feel like they are family. Thank you Lyndsay and Charlyn for caring for my baby!! You both are amazing!!!

Very pleased. Excellent communication with me while I was away. Pictures etc
Hi my name is Max. My mom and dad had to go out of town so I had to stay with Lyndsay and her mom. I looked at the door for about two minutes waiting for my mom and dad to come back. They never leave me anywhere. They did not come back. But then Lyndsay did something really special. She placed my bed on her nice couch. I was so excited that I leaped into my bed. Before I knew it she was rubbing my tummy and we were taking some really cool PICS I hope mommy post the one with the bow tie. I cant wait to see Lyndsay and her mom again They are super KOOL!!!! By the way my next door neighbor is going to stay with Lyndsay also I can't wait for her to come home so we can compare notes. Love Max

I'm so grateful for our pup's stay with Lyndsay! I was so glad to know my Stella was in great hands!
Lyndsay's great! As soon as we got to her house, Domino seemed to be fairly comfortable there. I got tons of pictures throughout his stay. He seemed to be playing well with toys and with her dog, Chandler. It was so comforting to know he was running around and playing and not stuck in a kennel. Lyndsay will definitely be our go-to dog sitter moving forward!

My dog had the best time! Lyndsay was great!
We were very happy with the care our babies received while staying with Lindsay. We had regular reports/picture updates, and are confident that they were happy and well taken care of. We will definitely use Lindsay's services again.
Neptune had a blast and Lyndsay kept me updated with lots of pics!
My dog is usually a little shy with new people, but he warmed up to Lyndsay immediately. I felt so comfortable leaving him in her attentive care. I got pictures every day and Winston got lots of love! Thank you, Lyndsay, for a great vacay for Winston!
