About Linda

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
ATTENTION>>>>>> During the Holidays, please be aware that Meet and Greets will be limited. We hope to gain your business through respect of others. We like to allow the dogs to have lots of time out, so by scheduling Meet and Greets, we have to always put them up so they do not rush the door to greet you and your dog when you enter. We will always make time for Meet and Greets at other slower times, but please respect the busy times and schedule ahead of a Holiday if a Meet and Greet is a must.

If you see I am booked and you really want to stay with us, make sure to send me a message. We might be able to get you a reservation......

Hi, I'm Linda, the Owner and Behavior Trainer of Good Canine. We train and show dogs professionally and I am a Certified Therapy and Service Dog Trainer for people with disabilities such as mobility and PTSD.

I have been working with dogs for over 40 years and have owned and operated many large kennel facilities. Since downsizing, we came across Dog Vacay and have opened our home to let your dogs come and spend time with us while you get your well needed time away.

Your dogs not only have a great place to stay, but with my background in behavior and overall dog knowledge, you can be comfortable in leaving them with someone that truly knows your dogs. We would love to have your dog come and stay with us and get to know you and have you become one of our repeat customers and part of our family.

We also have bathing and breed specific grooming available for an additional charge.

Training programs are available for your dogs if you would like to do a board and train program while you are away.

We have been improving the lives of dogs and owners for over 40 years. No matter what kind of behavior issues your dog may be showing, we have the experience and knowledge to provide you with the right solution. As proven leaders in our field, we have helped over 5000 dogs and counting. Our programs provide you with everything you need to achieve responsiveness, mutual respect, and most importantly, an enhanced quality of life for you and your dog.
- Linda Konrad, Behavior Trainer/Evaluations/Certifier

Linda is a wealth of great information and was wonderful to work with! I felt very comfortable with my choice to leave my shepherd mix with her, and he had a ball at her house. I will definitely be utilizing her services again in the future.
Ellie loved her stay!
Linda is absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend Dogvacay.
Linda K was an awesome host for our dog Melo. Melo was immediately at ease and enjoyed the spacious areas. Linda K is very informative and took time to share her schedule for the dogs and even gave us some great advice regarding our dog's diet. I was also pleased with the residence itself It was clean with no clutter. Linda K will be my dog's vacay spot!
We could not be more thrilled to have found Linda! We are very protective of our fur-babies and I am extremely picky about who we leave them with. I never felt completely comfortable with commercial boarding places that we used in the past. I was anxious during all of our vacations worrying about them and ours dogs were always depressed when we picked them up. I am so glad that Dog Vacay introduced us to Linda. Her knowledge and love of dogs immediately put my mind at ease. I love that our dogs get to enjoy an in home environment, instead of being kenneled all day, and they have tons of outside space to play. I honestly was just as comfortable leaving our babies with Linda than I would be with family, if not more. With her, I know they are being constantly watched and she has the knowledge to handle any situation that may arise. Our pups loved their vacation!
My dogs love staying at Linda's house.
Always a great experience!
Everything went well. Linda gave us some training tips regarding our pups. She was very helpful and the dogs were well taken care of.
Excellent. Can't say enough good things. Very flexible and accommodating. Great peace of mind knowing our dog was in good hands.
Our dog, Lucky, just spent almost 3 weeks with Linda. I felt very comfortable with him there. She is so knowledgable about dogs. I think he had a very good stay, and I plan to take him back in October when we go away for a week.
Ms. Linda was very nice and informative about dog care. Would not hesitate to use her services again. She has a very nice and comfortable home for the car of your pet. I would not hesitate to using her services again.
Great experience once again! We've booked with Linda multiple times and our pups are always well-cared for.

Pups were well-cared for. We've booked with Linda several times and always have a great experience.
Linda is great! Pups love going to stay.
Linda is great and our dogs were well cared for.
We love keeping the dogs at Lindas! shes our go-to dog sitter :) while we're gone she works on correcting their bad habits and i feel confident leaving my babies with her. thanks linda :)
Linda was great with our dog. She taught her a lot while she was there visiting. I would recommend her.
Linda was so great to take in my two dogs at the last minute. My girls had a great weekend and really loved playing with the other dogs. Linda's house and yard were perfectly suited for hosting a number of dogs and I could tell that she was a true professional. I highly recommend Linda for your doggies and their next vacation!
Boneita had fun as usual! It is great to be able to leave town and feel comfortable leaving your baby in good hands!
This was my first time using DogVacay and Mindy's first time to stay with Linda. Linda is extremely knowledgeable with canines and alleviated any worry I had leaving Mindy for the weekend. Linda has a beautiful property that is perfect for big and small pups alike! She was also very flexible and understanding with my drop-off/pick-up times. Your furbaby is in great hands with Linda!
Our dog Sadie has stayed with Linda on several occasions and always seems to have a good time. She enjoys playing with the other dogs during their outdoor time and we know she is in good hands with Linda.
Linda took excellent care of sammy! Sammy came back happy, well cared for, and that's the most important thing for us. We will definitely be using Linda again when we go on vacation!
Linda was very knowledgeable. She gave us great advice about what dog food to feed out pitbull and also advice about how to get her to stop jumping on us. We will definitely be back! Thanks for taking great care of our spoiled puppy!
Linda was great with my dog. Daisy had never been away from home and I didn't know what to expect. When I picked up Daisy, she was happy and had been taught several things. Linda gave her the proper care and guidance that she needed to make this experience a good one.
Linda was a great place for our dogs while we were out of town. Everyone was so nice and the environment was very clean. Our puppies came home very happy!
We used the pick up and delivery service, which went very smoothly. Our dog loves Linda and was happy both when he left us and when he returned home! We will definitly use Linda again!
Amazing pet host!
Super late on this review but once again were coming back to Linda because she is a great host! Linda is an expert dog trainer and I know Nacho is always in good hands with her.
Thanks for taking care of the pups!
Ziggy always has a great time at Linda's. He loves playing with other dogs!
Our Maggie is like our child, so we are very picky on who we leave her with. After several conversations with Linda we felt comfortable using her. When we picked Maggie up after her stay she seemed to have enjoyed her stay. We will definitely use her again. Thanks Linda- Terry and Diana McDonnell
Linda is very knowledgeable and genuinely interested Inthe welfare of your pet. We have always felt secure having Linda watch Stanley. Most of all Stanley adores her!
I'm writing this review several months after Linda watched my cattle dog Nala and cat Simba. Oops!! I just wanted to that she was awesome... I really lucked out that they were able to keep both my cat and dog in the same home, with adorable pictures to prove it!
We were very pleased with our puppies stay with Linda. The facilities were clean and there was a big outdoor area as well. Our puppy came home happy and healthy. We would definitely recommend her to a friend:)
Linda was very nice and our dogs seemed to have had a great time while they had a week with Linda. She has a really big secure fence and a lot of toys so the dogs can run around and have a blast until they are tired. Its hard for me to trust my dogs with anyone but i can say i will not have that problem anymore and that they will be going on vacation again at Lindas in the future.
Fantastic as always...the girls love going to the babysitter!
What a wonderful host! My dog, Monkey had an ideal 'vacation' at Linda's while we were away. He made some great friends and I could tell he had plenty of attention and exercise while he was there.
Linda is awesome, My pup comes back happy and healthy always. She is very knowledgeable, so I can rest easy that my puppy is in good capable hands.
Buck and Rusti had a great time. I know they were loved. Thanks Linda!
Linda was exceptional with our dog! When we picked him up we could tell he had a blast with her. She also spent time training him on several behavioral issues. He was a new well trained dog when we picked him up, AND only after 7 days! ! Great dog living family.
Star had a great visit with Linda. She was very well cared for and would let her stay there again.
As usual Coco had a great time. She always has new friends to play and socialize with.
Linda is awesome! This was my two Boxers 2nd stay with Linda. They absolutely LOVE staying with Linda and her family, both people or dogs. It is truly a VACAY for them and I know they are well taken care of and having a great time, therefore I can have a great VACAY without worrying about my "kids" all the time! Thank you Linda!
Coco had a fabulous vacation at Linda & Ron's house. She is always happy to stay there -- and I would recommend Linda K to anyone.
This is the second time we have used Linda and it won't be the last!
Linda is awesome. Coco loves to go on vacation at her house - i never have to worry about her at all.
Incredible from start to finish. Very nice home and plenty of room to run around.
I am so glad I could leave my dog with Linda!! I knew he was in good hands and didn't have to worry!! He came back to me groomed and looking happy!!! Thank you Linda!! I
We are so happy we found Linda! Our dog had such a good time with her. We did not even have to worry about her while on vacation. Such a better option than boarding at a vet that just crates them all day. And she had lots of dogs to play with, too!
Linda is amazing!!! Eleanor comes home happy and exhausted. I couldn't be happier with her care when I'm away. She just loves it!
Overall great experience. Our babies had a great time, and we never once had to worry about them! We will be using Linda again.
My three dogs had a fun stay with Linda and her family. I felt very comfortable leaving them knowing she is an experienced professional trainer so knows and understands doggie needs and behaviors. I Will definitely use her again.
Our two chihuahuas we have had since puppies, nine and fourteen years old, had never stayed with or been cared for by anyone else. We were thrilled to find Linda and Ron as pet sitters for our two week visit to New Zealand, because they have an innate affection for dogs and understand dog behavior. From the time we first visited in person to the time we picked up the dogs, we were completely at ease. The dogs are socialized, kenneled, played with, and held as needed, understanding the boundaries and the rules of the house. This was a huge plus for us, knowing that they would be less anxious in a disciplined, loving home environment. We could tell, when we picked up the dogs, they had made Linda and Ron's home their home! It was such a relief knowing they were in good hands, so that we could enjoy our vacation. And a huge plus to have folks as qualified and caring as Ron and Linda, right in our area! We could not have been more pleased. Will definitely be our go to sitters if needed in the future. Want other area pet owners to know we have a gem in our midst with regard to pet sitting services! So glad we found them!
I searched many profiles to find the perfect one for my two Boxer kids and they had a great vacation of their own. I drove from Euless out to Crowley and so glad I did, absolutley no regrets. My kids were very well cared for my Linda & Ron. Currently I live in an apartment and my 2 Boxers just don't get enough exercise, so my boy is just a little on the chunky side. Well they got in so much play time in 2-1/2 weeks that I can tell he had lost a few much needed pounds, how awesome is that! Thank you Linda & Ron so much for taking such great care of my kids! I would definitely bring them back for another vacation of their own while I'm out of town!
Linda and Ron took great care of our Stella girl while we were on vacation! I will definitely use Linda's services again when we go on vacation or a short trip! Stella is an only dog child so she loved being able to play with the other dogs. I loved not having to worry about her feeling abandoned while we were away. This was a very pleasant experience.
This was our first time leaving Bailey with anyone other than family. She is a big 100lb girl and can be quite shy with new people and dogs. Soon as we went on our meet and greet, we could see Bailey was very comfortable there. That was a very good sign for us. Linda sent us pictures and a short video, and we could see Bailey was happy too! She even made friends with her husband, which is a big deal for her since she doesn't like very many men, and also bonded well with their sweet dog Elle. Now that we have someone we trust with Bailey, we will be using her from now on!
Izzy had a great stay with Linda. Very flexible with drop off and pick up. Great yard to run in and friends to play with. Already planning our next getaway!
Linda was great. She has a great fenced in yard with lots of play room and has a large indoor area as well. Her experience with different breeds is extensive and knew exactly how to take care of my Great Dane.
As usual Coco had a great stay with Linda. She had new friends to play with and enjoyed her stay.
We feel so lucky to have found Linda! She is wonderful with Emma and has suggested new dog food which we have noticed a big improvement with Emma's health since switching over.
Linda is so great with Emma. She is always accommodating with drop off/pick up times.
Coco must have had a wonderful time. We received great reports and pictures from Linda. We have seen clips of Coco playing with another dog but the bigest surprise was when we went to pick her up her newest playmate was a cat named Simba and they were having a lot of fun. We and Coco are very happy to have found Linda on DogVacay. Neal & Elke Henke
Our two dogs had a great time with Linda at Good Canine. She is very knowledgeable in dog training and our guys were even better behaved when we picked them up. Now that's an extra benefit!
We took our crates for the stay. They have two fenced areas and a dog friendly home. They stayed 2 nights and 3 days.
We were very very pleased and will use Linda again.
Linda took care of our Coco who we have only had for 3 months . She is a 5 year old rescue GSP -- We dropped her off and immediately she was relaxed and happy. We received pictures of her playing with toys and other doggies. Linda kept in contact the entire time we were away, and took very good care of Coco. When we picked up Coco last night, she was happy to see us, but sad to leave her friends. She definitely had a vacation and she is looking forward to going back.
I left my 3 dogs, 2 bloodhounds and an Aussie, with Linda for 4 days. She has a great property with LOTS of space for running and playing. She is also very good and knowledgable about dogs. My dogs had a great time and when I picked them up, they looked and felt cleaner than when I left them!??? I would definitely use Linda again!
Coco must of had a great time. Having another dog (s) to play with is always great.
Linda is awesome! She is in the best of hands with Linda. My aussie truly believes she is getting to go on vacation when she goes over to Linda's. It is my pup's second home.
Linda is amazing! My dogs normally hate when I leave them, but they were having so much fun when I dropped them off they didn't even notice as I walked out the door. It makes leaving them so much easier when you know they are in good hands. Linda is knowledgeable in so many different areas, she'll be able to handle any dog you bring her way! Such a great experience. I will be going back!
Luca and I love Mrs. Linda!! Luca always has a blast!
Linda was GREAT! Our dog had a fun time and was well cared for. I felt totally at ease leaving our dog with Linda even though this was my first time to board him in someone's home. Linda has years of experience with dogs, so I had no worries. She was great to work with and I look forward to working with Linda again for any future boarding needs.
Linda was amazing! She was very informative and helpful to all my questions and concerns. She made leaving my very sweet rambunctious Luca less stressful for both luca and I! Thank you for your love and patience Linda!
My dogs, Sundance and Maverick, LOVED staying at Linda's!! Linda was able to give us some very helpful tips to train our dogs. We will definitely call Linda again.
Very conscientious and knowledgeable person. Besides proper care she also gave good advice! We were very pleased with her service and care for our Boxer, Ava.
This is one of those reviews a selfish person like me does not like sharing. Linda is the perfect host for our two precious labs. Enough said. :) :)
Linda is absolutely wonderful! After Ellie's first meeting with Linda and Sketch, all hesitation was gone! Eleanor came home from her week with Linda happy and exhausted!!! I couldn't be happier with her care!
Linda was an awesome dog sitter. I couldn't have been happier. My dog was kept in exactly the environment she was used to and had other dogs to play with. She was in doggie paradise.
Linda also did an amazing job grooming my dog. She looked like a show dog!
Thank you Linda for taking such excellent care of my doggie friend.
