About Lindsie

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Seasons Greetings!

I am now accepting bookings for the holiday season. This is a busy time of year, so please put in your request soon!

I understand that our dogs are our babies and when in my care, they will be treated as such :) I am devoted to the dogs in my care and aim to give you the gift of peace of mind while you are away.

A bit of background on me...

I am a professional dog handler with a certification in pet first aid/CPR. I have been dog walking, doing over night boarding, and working in a dog daycare for many years now. Unlike most dog sitters you may find on Dogvacay, I do not work outside my home for 8 or more hours per day. I am self employed ( I own a dog care and portrait company) so your pup will never have to left alone while in my care!

My spouse (who is like the Dog Whisperer) and I own a 5 year old Daschsund, Polly who loves the company of her canine house guests! We have several walks a day, lots of play time, snuggles, and of course treats if you approve, making our guest dogs feel like a family member.

You provide dog food, bedding, a familiar toy, and I provide the TLC for a fun vacation for your beloved fur baby! Living only a couple blocks from Stanley Park, the Seawall, and the beach as well as fenced in off leash parks, provides many hours of fun for Fido.
It's always best to first arrange a meet and greet to sniff each other out before booking services.

Please note that my building only allows me to board dogs 25 lbs and under who are FULLY house trained and well socialized.

I can accept last minute bookings without a meet and greet if my schedule permits and I do offer evening dog sitting 6pm-midnight on weekends.

No car? No problem! I do offer pick up and drop off for boarding for an additional $10 fee each way.

When booking your dog with me, I reserve my time exclusively for your pup! I offer personalized care that goes above and beyond. I cater to your dog to suit his/her individual needs. I've been told by dog moms and dads that this extra level of attention is what sets me apart.

Expect to receive photo updates while you are away, excellent and clear communication in arranging details, and a tired and happy dog upon your arrival back home.

Excellent references available upon request.

Lindsie is a fantastic sitter and Dave loves coming to stay with her. Whether just for a day or a longer stay of a week, we have no worries when dropping him off. He always gets so much exercise and comes home exhausted, which is perfect. Lindsie has a gorgeous dog, Polly, and Dave gets on with her so well. I love that he has another dog to play with when he's there. I highly recommend Lindsie, Dave loves her!

Lindsie is awesome with Dave. We feel super comfortable leaving him with her, often for a few days at a time. Best of all he clearly enjoys his stays there!

Lindsie always provides tons of exercise and Dave regularly comes back to us tired-out from all the running, exploring and playing - which is perfect!

Lindsie is a great doggie caregiver. I left my two little ones with her on several occasions - sometimes for daycare and sometimes for overnights. They always came back happy and were always wagging their tails happy to see her again.
My visit to Vancouver was a spontaneous trip. I asked her at the last minute if she could watch my dog to go sightseeing. Her response time was fast and she was very accommodating! My dog had a fun time with her pack!
Bert looked like he had a whale of a time with Lindsie and all his pals over Christmas. Very happy. Lindsie was responsive, sent lots of photos and our little guy was his usual happy self when we got him back. I would highly recommend Lindsie.
Lindsie was great. She explained everything well and the whole boarding process went very smoothly. My pups came back happy and pretty tired :-) Thanks Lindsie
I knew the first time I met Lindsie that she would be awesome with my mini Doxie. She knows a lot about pet care and I had full confidence with her that my dog was safe and sound. I highly recommend her and I definitely will be using her again should I need to.

Lindsie was quick to respond to booking request. My dog Rascal came home very happy and active. We could tell he had a good time with Lindsie. ST
We were a little nervous leaving our little fur baby with someone that he (we) didn't know, but we were in Vancouver on vacation from the U.S. and staying in a hotel that would not appreciate our dog's incessant barking when we were out eating. So we bit the bullet and put our trust in Lindsie. As soon as we met her, we were put at ease. Our bundle of joy is a bit testy and has separation anxiety... but she knew how to handle him and was confident and comfortable. We had no reason to be nervous and knew our dog was in good hands. We are so happy we found Lindsie! We are in town for another day and have already arranged for Lindsie to watch our dog again. Thanks Lindsie!

Initial plans to meet with Lindsie and then all the sitting arrangements were super easy because of her responsiveness. I could tell immediately that she is a "natural" with dogs (She previously worked at a doggy day care and also at a dog rescue organization so has dedicated a lot of time to nurture our four legged friends/family). It's very obvious she really enjoys the sitting and is taking care of the dogs thru DogVacay for the love and pleasure of it and not just to make a few bucks. She watched our older dog Maci who is difficult and stubborn with "strangers" (she gets depressed and withdrawn when we are away) and Lindsie managed to get our Maci out of her "funk". It may have been the daily walks to Stanley Park or Lyndsies dog, Polly - the gracious hostess dog - who was gentle and sweet to her visitor :).

I absolutely endorse Lyndsie if you want peace of mind while you are away. She cheerfully accepted all of our special instructions (medication needed and preferences for care that we requested) and sent pictures to show Maci was having as enjoyable a time as possible. Thanks so much Lyndsie for your patience with our pooch, we'll be seeing you again soon!
