About Lindsay

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I'm Lindsay. I grew up with all sorts of animals - dogs, cats, rabbits, small mammals and horses. I have watched people's companions for years and have been doing cat-sitting in the Silver Spring/Takoma area since 2008. I have experience working in a small animal clinic and was a large animal ICU vet tech at Virginia Tech. I currently work with wildlife, so animals are a huge part of my life. I own a lovely house with a beautiful FENCED yard, where I live with my partner, who I have also trained to be an enthusiastic animal lover. I lost my 16 yr dog in 2015 to cancer and am not looking to have another dog yet, but would love to meet some great dog friends to watch. I have three cats that are good with dogs that are good with them (they are older - so no dogs that chase them or are pack oriented). I am also right off of Sligo Creek Parkway, so the park is just yards away. I will happily make visits to your home for your dogs or cats or exotics as well (see services offered for pricing).

This was Maisie's first day with Lindsay and we couldn't have been happier. We were regularly updated on how Maisie was doing and from the picture we could tell that she was having a great time with other doggie friends. Lindsay has a big, securely fenced in back yard which was important to us, since Maisie is high energy and a yard is definitely a must for her.
We will be sure to book with Lindsay again next time we are out of town.
Lindsay's home provides a relaxed atmosphere. My dog is able to settle right in when he stays there.
This was the first time for Cody using DogVacay and I was a bit nervous leaving him for so long but Lindsay was wonderful. The house is very welcoming and she has a nice sized back yard for the dogs to run around in. She's also super close to Sligo Creek so I know he enjoyed his walks. Lindsay updated me with some lovely pictures. When I picked him up, she had just returned home. Cody was happy to see me but equally excited to see her, which was so sweet to see and underlined the fact that I'd made a great choice picking her! He was obviously very happy with her. He will definitely be a return guest.
Lindsay was simply wonderful with our dog. She is experienced, calm, reliable, and a very pleasant person. We trusted her completely, and are very grateful. Happy New Year!
Easy drop off and pick up, and she took wonderful care of my dog!
Another great stay with Lindsay! The dogs love her and get excited when they realize we are going to her house.
Lindsay is a wonderful host, calm and loving. I had full trust in her taking care of my very active mutt!
There is only one word to describe Lindsay - wonderful! She is a warm and caring person who gets both our fury friends, as well as us humans, very well. Our dog is older, has anxiety when we are not with him, and he doesn't like to be away from us. He took to Lindsay immediately and had become so attached to her when we were away. Far from being stressed, he was happy when we saw him and we feel very fortunate, to have found her. She is responsible and a natural, and we couldn't have hoped for a nicer person.
Lindsay is very accommodating with pick up and drop off times. My dog loves staying at her place. She takes excellent care of my dog and his needs (such as needing a warm egg for breakfast time). We don't worry about our dog when he is in Lindsay's care.
We can't thank Lindsay enough for taking our dogs with her on her weekend getaway while we had to fly back to Texas for a graduation. Best dog sitter ever! :)
Great as always!
Great experience! It was super easy and Pixel came home happy and healthy. We'll be booking again soon!
PJ is always very happy and relaxed after staying with Lindsay
Our doggie is always happy to see Lindsay, who has been her favorite care taker for over a year now. She always drags us into Lindsay’s house as soon as we get out of the car and greets her with a big smile an lot of wagging. We are very comfortable leaving our pup at her place. Lindsay is a nature and animal lover. She lives in a quiet neighborhood just a block away from trails in Sligo Creek Park. She also has a large backyard, which is perfect for doggie play. Scheduling the drop-off and pick-up time, and general communications have always been going smoothly. Lindsay has administered food, supplements and medicine per requested schedule. I highly recommend Lindsay as an excellent doggie caretaker.
She worked with us when we had to split between 2 dogvacay people to get the whole time covered. Our dogs love Lindsay!
Lindsay was accommodating to my schedule, which was really helpful. She did a great job and the pups were nice and tired when they got home.
Our dogs actually get excited to be dropped off at Lindsay's. That means a lot to us!
Tux came home happy and safe after another long weekend at Lindsay's.
Rosie's stay with Lindsay was excellent. We had a meeting with her a week before and Rosie felt comfortable right away (note that Rosie was rescued and a year ago she wouldn't enter a new home or go from room to room easily). She looked as she had been happy at Lindsay's place when I picked her up from her three night stay. I could tell she was appreciative and deferential of Lindsay when she was saying goodbye to come back with us.
Lindsay took great care of Tux for us again.
Lindsay was great with our two dogs! This was their 2nd time to stay with her and they were happy to see her. They walked in like they owned the place! One of our dogs needed some meds which Lindsay did a great job keeping up with. We've already booked her for our next trip, so glad to have found her!
My dogs Sunni, American Bulldog & Simon, high energy Rat Terrier, seemed to have a good time while I was away for 6 days. Lindsay sent pictures which put my mind at ease. I would definitely recommend her.
My Jake is very hyper active lab. I really liked how calm Lindsay was around him. He seemed very happy when I came to pick him up and was sound asleep within minutes of arriving back at the house. I would definitely use her services again!
Lindsay was fantastic! Peet had a great time, and was truly loved while we were away. We'll definitely use her again!!
Our dog had another great overnight stay with Lindsay.
Sasha had a great time. She is a 10yrold border Collie/Aussie mix. She stayed with Lindsay for 6 days and seemed to have a great time. Lindsay sent us pictures which we greatly appreciated. i would definitely recommend Lindsay to others
Lindsay was great with Bucky. I especially liked the pictures she sent me. I will definitely leave Bucky with her in the future
Lindsay took a lot of stress out of my travel plans. My plane got canceled and I was stuck out of town, while my dog was at her house. She was very understanding and very accommodating with the extension to my dogs stay with her. I am very thankful I found Lindsey.
Lindsay is amazing. Her calm demeanor put my anxious dog at ease and made me feel comfortable leaving. She sent me pictures so I could see that my dog was very happy. We traveled during snow storms and Lindsay was beyond accommodating, and helpful, with the last minute changes to our travel plans. She has an awesome back yard for dogs to play in. And her proximity to Sligo Creek Park is a dogs dream. I cannot say enough great things about Linsay. Your dog is in good hands here.
Lindsay did a great job taking care of Tux for us while we were out of town for a long weekend.
Lindsay was great. She was super prompt with replies, flexible with my arrival and departure, easy to schedule with at the last minute, and fantastic at easing my worries while away by sending pictures. Highly recommend!
Fantastic! Just what we needed for last minute coverage.
Thank you Lindsay for taking care of our rascal Jax. We loved the pictures of him passed out on the couch--play hard, sleep hard! We highly recommend Lindsay to anyone in the Silver Spring area!
As soon as we met Lindsay we felt comfortable leaving our furbabies with her for a week. Our dogs seemed right at home at her house when we dropped them off. She responded quickly to texts and even sent us pictures throughout the week. She has a great backyard, but still takes the dogs for walks. We're so happy to have found her!
Lindsay was quick to communicate before and during the dog stay and made the experience pleasant and secure. I felt good about leaving our baby in her care!
Lindsay was wonderful with my dog and very accommodating. She sent great picture updates almost daily. I would definitely recommend her and would use her service again.
