About Linda

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, I'm Linda! I am a retired homebody who spends a lot of her time in the backyard, either gardening or entertaining my 2-year-old Miniature Pinscher mix. We are both very easygoing, and we get along with every dog who enters our home. Since I'm always home, that also means that I'll be able to provide 24/7 supervision! Your dog will be spoiled constantly with my love and attention.

I live in a very spacious home with pet-proof travertine floors. There's also a huge yard that's completely fenced and private. There will definitely be a squirrel sighting here and there. I also have a swimming pool if your dog wants to take a nice, cool dip during a warm day! This will be an endlessly happy place for your pup, and I am excited to be a part of it.

Because I grew up on a farm, I have been surrounded by animals all of my life. Dogs take a up a huge part of my heart, and I hope you'll allow me to show your furry friend the best Vacay ever here in Granada Hills.

Very happy with Linda, We look forward to many more reservations with her.
Linda is truly the best ! She kept me updated with awesome photos of what my dog was doing throughout the day. Daisy looked so happy and had an amazing time with the other dogs. I definitely recommend her!
Linda was fantastic. Took in our Stevie and made him part of the pack quickly. We had no concerns that our Stevie was well taken care of. She also sent multiple pictures through the day to let us know he was having a good time.
This was the first time our dog, Bonnie, stayed with Linda. In fact, it was the first time we used DogVacay! Linda made us feel comfortable from our introduction visit throughout Bonnie's entire stay. She sent us daily updates which helped ease our minds. She is loving and attentive and the environment is lovely and very clean. Bonnie will definitely be back.

Linda was terrific. She has a perfect house for the dogs to stay with her. She took wonderful care of my dog. I was gone 13 days and my dog was happy when I returned. I will always have Lady stay with Linda when I travel. I highly recommend her
I couldn't have found a better person than Linda, you could feel how much Linda loves what she does . We know have a place to leave her when ever we go out of town. Thank you Linda.
Linda was awesome! My dog normally has separation anxiety and takes a while to warm up to new people and places. This was not the case with Linda. Minnie and I did a meet and greet a couple of days prior to my booking and it was wonderful. I left there knowing Minnie would be well taken care of.
When I dropped Minnie off for daycare she started playing and didn't even know I was leaving. Linda sent me pictures of how well she was doing.
I will definitely be booking again with Linda.

Where to start! Linda was a fantastic sitter for our dog! She made both of us feel very welcomed at our meet and greet before our dogs stay and showed us the lovely accommodations for the dogs! When it came time for our dogs vacay, Linda was flexible with drop off/pick up times and was excited to watch our pup. She sent great pictures, videos, and updates, which we appreciated! I really enjoyed the service we received and our pup enjoyed his stay, I would highly recommend Linda! I look forward to booking our dog again! Thanks a million Linda!

Linda made my first experience with leaving me newly adopted dogson with a sitter a positive experience. Linda was easy to work with to set up a meet and great and was flexible with the drop off and pick up once booked. Her home is gorgeous and a great set up especially for our pups to roam and play. Linda herself is warm and receptive I had no reservations leaving my Cairo with her. She also sent daily pics and texts to let me know how my pup was doing. I would definitely recommend Linda's place for your dog son or daughter.

Another wonderful visit ! Such a relief to know our Jack is in good hands with Linda.
Linda is very responsive, attentive and lovely person to work with and have my dog stay at her house. Churro had a lovely time- played her heart out and came back pooped and tired.
Linda sent me updates daily even when I was out of the country, I was still able to see my churro and how she was doing.
Linda has a great personality and pleasure to meet and work with.

Excellent service, she took care of out Nicky very well and sent us a daily picture with some description of how she was doing, I highly recommend her service, thank you Linda!
Loved Linda and her place our dog was happy to have free range of the house.
Linda is very nice and quite devoted to taking care of the dogs staying in her home. She is easy to work with and willing to accommodate the needs of your pets. She is quite popular and often has many dogs staying with her. We found that she had a good system for managing all the dogs in her care so we were not concerned. The only downside for us, which is not Linda's fault, is that our dogs came home with many fleas. Since our dogs spend a lot of time in the house with us, we monitor their fleas very closely and know that they did not have any fleas before staying with Linda. This would not prevent us from using Linda again and would likely happen in other cases where many dogs are staying.

Linda is Awesome!
Linda is such a great person. Her house is super clean and has a huge backyard. My dog had an amazing time. She is also really good at giving you updates and sending you pictures. And the best part, her rates are super convenience.
Linda is absolutely wonderful! This was the first time I left my 1 year old Boston Terrior with anyone. From the moment I meant Linda, I was 100% comfortable and knew my little man would be in the best hands. I also received pictures and updates daily which made my day. Best decision and I recommend her to anyone who needs daycare, short term and long term overnight care.

I left my baby Hershel with Linda this past weekend, he had never stayed with anyone but family. So, naturally I was a bit nervous about leaving him but as soon as I met Linda I knew he was in great hands. She has a wonderful spacious yard for the pups to explore . She kept me updated all weekend with photos ( my Hershel had a puppy smile in every one!) she would send a comforting message... She made me feel at ease:) my baby was so happy when I arrived, he had a blast with his new doggy friends! Linda is the only other person besides family that I will be leaving my pup with. I am definitely booking her for my upcoming vacation . She's the best ! Thanks Linda:)

Linda is THE BEST. She's very responsive, sends pics every day of your pup, goes above and beyond for both pet and owner. I will use her again and again, if I can actually book her! She's in high demand because of her awesome track record!
So Linda is always booked up and now i know why!! She's awesome. My dogs fell in love with her right away as she is totally a dog person. They ran around in her beautiful home, which is very spacious, like they lived there. She has a huge backyard too with a swimming pool and so right away I knew it would be like vacation for them.
She sent me photos every other day, as i requested, and communication with her was always great. She responds very quickly to messages which is what you want when finding somewhere for our little treasures.
Will go back for sure. Pups even seemed a little sad to be back home. ;-) A great find on Dogvacay.

I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Linda for the 10 days I was on vacation. She is a genuine dog lover. She allows pets freedom of her whole house and has a nice yard for them. She regularly walks the dogs she looks after. She sends a daily picture and update on how your pet is doing. She allows the pets to sleep with her. I will be using Linda again for my next vacation.

Linda G took care of our puppy over the weekend and we couldn't have asked for more. Linda checked in with us every day and sent us pictures of our dog daily! Cooper our dog came back exhausted so I know he had a great time playing with the other dogs. Highly recommended!

This was the first time for us using Linda and she was so great! Our dog had a blast all week long and I loved getting her text updates all week. Made our vacation even better knowing we didn't have to worry about him! He came home happy and pooped out from playing!

Linda is a wonderful host. She watched my 2 pups over a weekend and kept me updated everyday. I loved receiving her pictures and made for a worry free time away from home. You can tell she loves all animals. Linda's beautiful home was a luxurious stay for my dogs. Will definitely be a return customer.

Linda was awesome and accommodating. She is way more than a "doggie sitter". She treated our like her own. Skittles came back to us stress free!!

I'm trying to rate 5 stars, but the website seems to be broken and won't let me select a rating. FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY! :)

Linda was wonderful!! I have two Maltese-poodles and I have never left them with someone they do not know. Well after this doggie vacay, they now know Linda very well. Linda was such a love and sent me pics throughout the days and visit to relieve my anxiety of leaving them. She took the best care of them and I was thrilled to see she only accepts other small dogs with great personalities. I will definitely be using Linda again!!

Linda and Bella were terrific hosts!! Scooby had a wonderful time. Linda sent emails and pictures to us everyday. We were so impressed with her dog sitting we have another vacation planned already and are letting Scooby stay again. We felt very relaxed and never worried once about our Little Scooby as we knew he was in very capable hands! Thank you Linda and Bella for a wonderful experience with a wonderful dog sitter.
Linda, Larry and Scooby Doo

Linda was fantastic. She's very caring with the dog and Lucy had an awesome time during her stay. I would definitely recommend Linda to anyone!
Thank you!!!
We are Very Pleased with our First DogVacay experience. Linda G. was a very loving and most attentive hostess for Sugar. She was very careful in introducing Sugar to other dogs in residence. Sugar fit in well with the other dogs and seemed very content with her overnight stay. Linda, thanks so very much for taking Great Care of Sugar.

Betty seemed to have a great time with Linda and the other doggies. Her flexibility with drop off and pick made the whole experience simple and easy.
My doggies had a great time and came back happy and healthy! Thanks Linda!!
Linda was great! Very friendly and my pup loved the attention... thanks Linda!
Linda was very easy to deal with and flexible with drop off and pick up. We really appreciated the text photos of our pooch! We would definitely use Linda again.
She was so good with my dog. She sent pictures everyday and really loved and played with him. Thank you, Linda for your kindness and your love!
I took my tiger for the first time and we both was nervous, after a day he got comfortable with the dogs and linda. she sent pictures twice a day to show me how's he's doing. Tiger has never been around dogs and thanks to Linda he now knows how to socialize with other dogs. Linda is the best doggy sitter. I will take Tiger back once or twice a week to visit his new friends.

We are so pleased with Linda G. She took good care of our little boy. Linda treats all the dogs with love and patient. She sent pictures and gave us update daily. Our little boy can stay inside or out to the backyard to play, there is no restriction as to where he can go. It is a peace of mind knowing our dog is in a good hand when we away.

Another great visit ! No worries when our dog Jack is in the care of Linda
Beanie and Gidget LOVED their stay with Linda! She sent texts and pictures everyday showing me how much fun they were having and that they were well cared for. Linda G is great and I felt so great leaving my dogs there.
Linda G. is very loving to our dear Casper. She and Bella always has a very clean and cozy home and we feel that Casper is safe with his stay. She is very flexible with drop offs and pick-up times. She is always out go to person for Casper and we will always be coming back to her if we decide to have someone take care of our furbaby. Thanks Linda, you're awesome!

We were very impressed with Linda G. Suzi Q warmed up to her immediately. She is very loving and made Suzi Q feel right at home. Her home is very clean, dog friendly and safe. We missed our little girl, but knew she was in good hands. I will definitely be using Linda G again and will recommend her to friends. Suzi Q misses her little dog buddies!

Linda was awesome!!! she loves our dog bentley as if he was her own!! she takes very good care of him, washes his teddy bear, sleeps with him and feeds him healthy diet. It was a true "dog vacation" for Bentley!!! Linda has a beautiful clean home, spacious side and back yards for Bentley to run around and chase after the little furry animals! Bentley was in heaven- he was not just having a room and board for 3 weeks, he gets the dog training from Linda too. Keep in mind that Bentley was a very "spoiled" dog 3 weeks ago and he is now much better behaved and less demanding of his mom and dad at home!! What a change in behavior! Thank you Linda, Bentley will come back and stay with you for sure!! jennifer and David kanaar

Linda amazing host. Felt safe with sebastian at your house. Need to rebook
Our dog Riley had the best time with Linda and Bella. He made lots of new friends and Linda is very caring and attentive. She has a lovely home and backyard. Everyday Linda sent me a message and photo which I appreciated so much. Riley will definitely be back to visit her!

Great as usual! We are repeat customers. Linda is very attentive and very good with the daily photo updates. I sometimes think our dog has a better vacation than we do whenever she's at Linda's! If you're thinking about having Linda look after your pup, do it! She's great!

It was a pleasure to leave our dog at Linda's lovely home when we went away for a few days. Linda is sweet and kind and clearly loves animals. Her house is set up so nicely for them with a ramp that helps them up to her bed if they want to sleep with her or in another room there is a large, low bed where the dogs can snuggle together. Her home is clean and pretty as is the back yard. It was nicely decorated for x-mas. I was completely at ease during my trip and was happy to receive a few cute photos of my dog and texts from Linda. She is attentive and wonderful! All I needed to bring was my dog's food. When I came back to take my dog home, I was delighted to find that Linda had placed a big dog biscuit in my dog's food bag to take home as a Christmas gift. So sweet. I will definitely call Linda again to have my dog stay with her when we travel.Thanks Linda!

Daisy's stay with Linda was very positive. Linda was so welcoming to both Daisy and me. She took excellent care of Daisy and I had no concerns at all. I will be leaving Daisy with Linda again very soon, Her home is totally dog friendly and Linda loves dogs.

We had to extend our dog's stay for an additional night due to our flight changes, and Linda was more than accommodating. Like I've said in my previous review, she's brilliant and will definately have Sadie stay with her and Bella again! :)
Linda is an awesome dogsitter. We left our dog Sadie with her for 2 weeks while we were overseas and she was sure to keep us updated everyday with photos. If you're considering leaving your pooch with her, do it! Couldn't recommend her more. She truly does love dogs and her place is an absolute delight for a doggy vacay! :)

Like many, I am an extremely protective parent with my 3 girls. I only leave them to run short errands, they are my babies... Linda was an important part of our enjoying this year's Thanksgiving holiday getaway. I was the one who had separation anxiety the first night away! I actually didn’t think I would make it and wanted to come home, but Linda’s reassurances and pictures helped calm me down.

I am a hardcore animal advocate! One of the things besides Linda's personality, that attracted me to her was that she is affordable. I have 3 little ones, and to me it projects that she loves what she does so much that the money is secondary. Of course my animals are worth any amount, but it just sends a message you know what I mean?

I also listened and watched her interaction with Bella, her little one... Linda communicates, and respects each dog’s special qualities. It’s evident, and endearing. I also like that Linda has a limit on how many she cares for, so each dog gets the attention it needs and deserves. By the way, her home is dog paradise! It is beautiful, with a pool and super sized back yard to run and play, not to mention daily walks!

Dear Linda... Thank you for taking care of Sami, Ivy, Lola AND ME!!!... Because of you, we will be able to venture out and see a bit more of the world! Actually, I will be bringing them over for daycare just so they can visit with you & Bella. They came home healthy and happy! We are so grateful... Lee & Jo

This was Jack's first visit and we are so happy to have found Linda. She took good care of our boy. She is truly a caring dog-loving person and her home is perfect environment for a dog to be comfortable and to run around and chase a squirrel or two .

Another great stay with Linda!
Linda is a great sitter. She is really attentive and loves the dog. We'll definately be repeat customers. If you're thinking about having Linda look after your pup, just do it. She's awesome! :)
We LOVE her so much! She has allowed us to work or play without be heart-sick and worried about our fuzzy baby boy!!!
Linda was an excellent host to my dog, Lucy. She sent me photo updates every day and it was so obvious that she adored Lucy and loves dogs, in general. Her place is a great getaway for any dog (and probably any person, too!) Beautiful backyard with a pool and plenty of opportunity for Lucy to engage in her favorite pastime - squirrel stalking! Lucy was tuckered out from her trip, which was a clear indication to me that she got plenty of exercise and activity - a must-have for her. I will happily board Lucy with Linda and Bella again!

FIVE STARS! PAWSOME!!!! We LOVE Linda, and so does Sir Loin! Linda has a passion for the dogs, and it shows. She is not doing this between gigs-this IS her gig and it shows. Her house is immaculate and you would never know she runs a doggie day care. We love her and trust her. We are SO HAPPY to have found her-we have peace of mind that our k9 kid is being loved when we drop him off. xoxxoxo

Walden LOVED staying with Linda. I think she still misses her and her dog Bella. I wouldn't hesitate for a second leaving your dog with her. I have rarely seen Walden so thrilled walking into someone's house. A great host!!
Linda is amazing, she treated my baby like her own. She sent me pictures everyday and when I picked up my baby, I can tell that she was very well taken care of. Thank you Linda! We'll definitely come back and will highly recommend you to my friends.
Koko and I have had only great experience with Linda while I was away for work. Linda has a very sweet and caring demeanor and a nice home that I felt comfortable leaving my dog in. I also appreciated her flexibility in pick-up and drop-off times which made scheduling a breeze. Upon picking Koko up, I could tell he had fun with Linda and her sweet dog Bella. I highly recommend her.

Linda is a very pleasant lady, a dog lover and her home is neat and welcoming. My dog Lucy seemed to have enjoyed her stay and when I picked her up she looked happy, clean and well fed. I highly recommend Linda G. Thank you Lina!
Linda is a wonderful host! I am not sure our boys wanted to leave her and Bella. They cried all the way home. I hope that next time they can be a little more outgoing and social.
Linda was great with e-mails and pictures. I hope that she can watch them again.

Thank you Linda for being such a great host to my dog! Indy thanks you for your hospitality!
I am very happy to have found Linda to take care of my rescue Bichon who suffers from extreme separation anxiety. She is a lovely person who obviously loves dogs giving them plenty of attention and affection as well as fun walks in the neighborhood. Her home and yard are beautiful and immaculate yet very dog friendly with plenty of room to play and relax. Linda never leaves the dogs alone nor does she shut them up in a confined space. She truly provides a nurturing home environment.

Linda loves dogs and took excellent care of ours. She has a lovely home very well suited to her purpose. She stayed in good contact with us. She provided walks and our dogs had a great time at her house. She has a Chihuahua that loves new dogs right away but people not so much.

Linda was very accommodating with the drop off time I requested. Always very professional. Would definitely use her again. :)
Excellent! Very happy that I found Linda. She's a sweetheart that loves dogs. Will definitely be using her in the future.
Awesome indeed! Many thanks for Linda for being so welcoming to my dog. He's an energetic guy, but luckily since she owns the same breed, she understands how Min Pins are. She has a place that is doggy paradise. I can tell my dog wanted to stay, lol!
