Thank you Linda for taking care of our big boy. We appreciated all the pictures and messages you sent letting us know how he was doing and letting him stay in your beautiful home and always responding quickly to our queries. We also appreciate your flexibility in drop off/ pick up times regarding travel schedules. You and your family are obvious dog lovers and understand clearly dogs' needs and behaviors and after meeting you and visiting your home you put us at ease in leaving our dog for an extended vacation. We look forward to having him stay with you when we leave town again. Thank you!

Linda covers all the bases; does a meet and greet, ask all the important questions, has a great environment for the dogs and most importantly has that caring and true concern for all dogs!

I had a similar sitter in Cincy and I knew right away the type of person Linda was! I thought she may take my attitude as a lack of concern for my dog because I was so comfortable with her and the environment. I instantly knew that she was someone who you could trust like family!

She sent pics of my dog and updates on her status to keep me in the know. I'll be a repeat client as I've already scheduled a follow-up stay!

Linda was great with my dog! My dog is a picky eater when she is nervous, but she felt right at home with Linda and her family. My dog is also very timid around other dogs, but she felt so comfortable with Linda and in Linda's yard that my dog did great around other dogs.

Phoebe just loves her stays with Linda. Her house is perfect for an active lab and she is reliable and communicative. I often get photos and videos during Phoebe's stay. Linda even set up a baby pool for the dogs to play in because it was so hot out when they were playing. It's like a real vacation and spa for Phoebe. I recommend her services 100%!!

Linda and her family are so great and Bishop can't wait to go back! She has a beautiful house with ample space inside and out for her doggie visitors. Bishop had a blast and was so happy when I picked him up after a week away. Thanks Linda, we will be back!

Always the best experience when the boys go to Auntie Linda's! I wouldn't ever take them anywhere else!
Linda has been great with our dog - and he clearly loves her! She's very accommodating and flexible with drop-off and pick-up, and provides a great experience overall.
Always a Five Star experience with Linda!! My boys love her and her family.
Linda is the best! Am always confident when I leave Livvy with her! And Livvy loves her- always happy to go back! Linda keeps me updated and is very attentive to her needs. Will be a repeat visitor forever!
Always a wonderful experience! My boys always bound out of the car and up the front door steps whenever we go to Linda's home! The whole family is great with animals, and I like knowing my small dogs are safe in their care.
Linda kept my two very skittish rescue pups for an extended time. I was uneasy about leaving them, but during our meet and greet I knew we had made a good decision. She was so thorough answering questions and easing our concerns. She also helped us work out a complicated scheduling issue. Linda sent us daily pictures and details of their days and nights with her. By the end of the trip our scared dogs were sleeping in her bed and had become fast friends! I highly recommend her!

Linda's house is beautiful and she is clearly a dog lover. I received photos and videos and I think Frodo had a great time there. I felt comfortable that my dog was being taken care of with love and safety. I will definitely take my dog to Linda when I travel again.

Linda was a life-saver! She accepted Bailey very last minute and went above and beyond to make sure he was comfortable. She kept me up to date with pictures and messages regarding Bailey. I truly appreciate her concern for him.
The dogs seemed to have a great time. Linda sent us pictures and messages during the stay.
Linda did a great job and was very patient with our dogs. One of our dogs was a recently adopted dog so she was still very skittish and scared of people. Even though Linda have tried hard to make it work, it was just not a good fit (due to our dog's difficulty with new people) so we will be looking for another solution for future pet sitting. We would definitely recommend Linda to others!

I don't think that we could have been happier with the experience we had with Linda and her family. Our Sadie had a phenomenal time spending a few days on her own vacay. Linda sent us pictures throughout our trip so that we could see that our Sadie was safe and happy.
Sadie can't wait to come back to stay with Linda!

Linda is a great sitter. Fast to reply and always has kind words.
Ozzy had a very good time with Linda and looked happy and healthy when we picked him up. He had a lot of fun running around Linda's large backyard and chewing on baseballs she kindly let him have.

Linda was wonderful and took great care of our cavalier King Charles Spaniel! She even took the time to send pictures and updates! We will certainly be using Linda again!
Linda was a great hostess! She was more than willing to keep Livvy with short notice. She was so friendly and caring when I took Livvy ( a 12 year old Cavalier) to her house that I knew she would be in good hands! She kept me updated with pictures over the weekend and reassured me that she was fine. She was also very accommodating with drop-off and pickup times. I will certainly use her again- she was great!

I was in a pinch and needed someone reliable to keep Wiilow. I didn't want to leave her at a kennel or dog boarding facility because she would spend most of the time in a crate.

Linda was the answer. She had a great place with huge backyard. Her home was equipped just right. Linda updated me with pictures via dogvacay throughout the day to assure me Willow was ok.

Willow loved it!

I would highly recommend her services.

We had a last minute trip to the Atlanta area and brought our puppy with us. We were kind of uncomfortable leaving our dog with a stranger. Linda was quick to respond to our reservation request for a last minute booking. She greeted us at the door with a smile and was happy to have our dog coming to stay for the day. She sent us numerous pictures throughout the day which made us relax and enjoy our time knowing that Rusty seemed happy and well cared for. He seemed completely comfortable when we picked him up and I knew he liked her when he stood up to get some "lovin'" from her before we left. We highly recommend Linda for your furry friend's care. Thanks again, Linda!

Linda was highly attentive to our 12 year old Pug. She had never experienced sitting for a Pug, and our little gal put her through the paces with her snoring and her bathroom needs. Linda took great care of her and we will definitely book with her again.

I'm not sure who had a better vacation, me of my dog?! Linda spoiled Tucker and I think he was more than willing to stay there longer. Tucker is a very energetic lab who doesn't sit still for a moment and Linda was very accommodating and willing to play with him rain or shine. From the moment I stepped in her home I knew this was a place that Tucker would return frequently. I sure hope he's aloud back! Thanks so much :)

Linda was phenomenal! She texted me updates, pictures, etc daily. You can tell she knows and absolutely loves dogs. I will always use Linda for all future trips. Nothing but great things...she even has a fenced back yard!
Linda was great. My pup seemed to have a great time and Linda posted pictures and videos daily, letting me know that she was doing well and there was no need to worry! She had a lovely home and a great outdoor space for the dogs to play. THANKS LINDA!

Linda was a great host for our dog Tucker. She was responsive and flexible about meeting up and scheduling pickup/drop off. She was willing to stay with our anxious dog 24/7 and was even gracious about how thunder-phobic Tucker kept her awake during a 4 am thunderstorm. She sent us regular updates and photos while we were gone and we were able to enjoy our vacation without worrying about Tucker for a minute. We will definitely leave Tucker with Linda again next time if she'll have us!

DJ had a wonderful time with Linda and her family over Thanksgiving. I think he wishes he was still there! She sent pictures and was more than kind. Her home is lovely. He will visit again when we need to leave again. Thank you!
Linda and her family were very welcoming and flexible. Linda has 2 dogs that my dog was able to play with. I was sent pictures of my dog during her stay. I can tell that my dog enjoyed her stay with Linda! I will definitely use them again in the future. I highly recommend Linda, she will love your dog as her own!

Linda and Chuck were absolutely wonderful! They are so welcoming and clearly love dogs so much. They made me feel very comfortable leaving my 2 dogs with them, and I was confident the entire weekend I was away that my dogs were in the best hands possible. Linda sent lots of photos and videos, spent lots of time with the pups including playing outside and going on walks, and was so sweet to them when they were afraid of a thunder storm. The back yard is huge and beautiful, the home is lovely, and the hosts (including their 2 dogs, Molly and Coco) were just perfect. I have always been afraid to leave my 2 pups with anyone, but I had such a great experience and will certainly ask Linda and Chuck to keep them again when we are out of town! If I can't have my dogs with me, I can't think of a better place for them to be than with Linda and Chuck!
