About Lynn

Why would you want to bring your dog to our house to stay when you are on vacation? It's really simple-we LOVE dogs. We treat pets like family here because, well, they are family.

As a stay-at-home mom, I am home all day with the exception of when I drop off and pick up my kids from school and when I need to run errands. Other than that, I am available to play with your pup throughout the day and my kids, 9 and 7, will take over after they come home from school.

We have the largest yard in our neighborhood (nearly 1/3 of an acre) which provides a lot of good space for an active dog to run and play.

Our neighborhood is very dog friendly, so your pooch would meet plenty of friends on our walks around the block.

We have an elderly cat who grew up around dogs, but if your dog's favorite sport is cat chasing, it probably won't work for us. The only other thing you would have to worry about is that if we really like your dog, we may want to keep it (just kidding of course).

We recently lost our wonderful 14 year old dog, July, who you can see in our profile picture. We miss having a dog, and aren't ready for one on a permanent basis yet. The good news is that that leaves a lot of our time to play with and care for your dog when you are away.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We look forward to caring for your four-legged friend while you are away.

2 years ago we hired Lynn to watch our 4 year old Springer. Rainy is raw fed & I was worried I wouldn't find someone to follow our feeding program. Lynn had no problems dealing with that issue. We visited first & her family was just wonderful. I especially loved that Rainy got to play with the kids & visiting dogs. She had a wonderful time & we had no worries. I just requested another booking.
My dog loves going to Lynn's house. I have a very laid back dog who lays around more than anything.
I love this family and our miss Hazel loves staying with them...that's all I need to know!
Lynn and her family are the best! We only worry that our dog enjoys their home more than our own !!
Lynn and her family are always great and I really appreciate their care of max.
Lynn and her family were easy to work with and took great care of our puppy. She kept us up to date with his activity and attitude, and reassured us he was doing great. Would highly recommend.
This was my second time using Lynn to take care of my pup Layla. Her and her family are so welcoming and Layla loved being there with them. They are very accomodating and I would use them again and again if I still was living near Portland.

Book with Lynn!
They took incredible care of our Hazel. It was her first time there so Lynn kept me updated w texts and photos assuring us she was having fun with the kids and comfortable. We all her Aunt Lynn now!!!
Our Lulu loves to stay at Lynn's house! Plenty of room inside and outside. Lynn's whole household loves dogs, a great place! Ruth and Andy Anderson
Lynn and her family are so amazing! I had to leave Winston for 3 weeks and they treated him like he was one of the family members. He loves playing with the other dog Vacay dogs that are staying there as well. Lynn does a great job of keeping me up to date with pictures and texts, which was great considering I was gone for so long. There isn't another host I want to leave Winston with. Thanks for taking such good care of him!
Lynn has a very soft spoken and motherly personality. I was very concerned about leaving my pets with a stranger for the first time, but Lynn made me feel comfortable and reassured that I was leaving them with the right person. I was sent pictures and updates of their daily activities. I will definitely bring Max and Maggi back again. Thank you Lynn!!!
Shadrach our golden retriever loved it and came back happy and healthy! What more could you ask for? Will totally use Lynn again.
It was a first for us leaving our Emmitt for any extended period of time. Lynn and her kiddos were just awesome from the moment we met. My wife's stress level just evaporated once we were able to visit with Lynn and see how comfortable and safe it would be for Em there. Clearly a very genuine pet loving family. It became immediately evident Emmitt felt right at home from the time we dropped him off. Lynn not only sent us photos every day, she was over and above helping with meds Em needed to take daily. We really appreciate you and your family Lynn, thank you and we will definitely use your help again if you'll have us! Jim, Amy and Emmitt
We are sincerely grateful for the care our dog received with Lynn and her family. It put our minds at ease while on vacation. We received daily pictures and updates on how Cole was doing. It was also a good experience for our dog as he got to socialize with other hosted dogs.

With Gratitude,
The Wheeler's
Lynn was an excellent host and took great care of Tinkerbell while we were away. I liked how she even sent me text message updates with photos! I was a little worried about how Tinkerbell would get along with other dogs since she doesn't usually care for them, but Lynn told me that she even played with them at times! We are happy that Tinkerbell and Lynn's family got along great together.
Lynn and her family are great...Max returned totally exhausted so I know he had a great time..I really appreciated the photos and updates too... I will definitely tell everyone about Lynn and dog vacay...
Fantastic!!! Ruth and Andy Anderson
Outstanding!! Thanks Lynn & Family.
Lynn and her family take great care of our puppy, Chopper. Lynn is very quick in responding to reservation requests and sends pics during the vacay so that we can see how much fun our puppy is having with her. Thanks Lynn!!
Excellent, as always! Andy
Obvious dog loving family. It was very easy to arrange my dog's stay and he loved spending time with his host family. Came home tired and happy!
Last time I had to kennel my girls I cried when I left them, this was the complete opposite of that experience. Lynn has a lovely clean home and fenced yard, and my younger dog fell in love with one of the kids right away. The photo updates were fantastic, I picked up two happy, healthy dogs after our weekend away, and Lynn even sent them home with a goodie bag of the most adorable homemade dog treats. I would definitely recommend her to friends, family, and anyone else who would like a more comforting experience for their doggies. I am truly grateful we found Lynn.
Everything went extremely well! Lynn and her family, two great kids, were exceptional. We've found a perfect home away from home, and Lulu can't wait to go back! Thanks, Lynn! Andy and Ruth Anderson
Lynn and her family provided a great home for Kubit (our mini-pin) while we were overseas. They gave her the love and care she needed to feel secure and happy. We were delighted with the photos they sent showing the fun she was having and didn’t worry about her for a minute. In fact, they were so good to her that it feels like she has found a second home. Now we are looking forward to our next trip so she can spend time with this wonderful family again soon.

Excellent, family care for our dog...he seemed to have a really good time. Thanks for the pics, too!
Lynn and her family were wonderful with Lucy. They could not have made her feel more comfortable and it was just like home for her. They love the dogs that they care for like their own !
My dog loved her visit with this family. The energy was just right for a laid back dog like mine. The dog combination of doggie guests in the home was perfect. I don't want to recommend this host too much or my dog will not have a place to take her vacation. My dog loves to get brushed and she definitely got brushed and brushed more. George was blowing her coat and if she is not brushed, she leaves dog hair everywhere. My dog likes to hide and lay in the garden and she got to do that.
Lynn and her family were awesome. Missy looked happy in her pictures and her kids spent time playing with her. She went the extra mile to make sure that Missy ate appropriately especially in the beginning of the vacation. I was concerned that Missy would not eat since she is apprehensive in new situations. Missy is not a playful dog but we found out that she started to play with the other dogs in Lynn's care. I would definitely recommend Lynn and will use her the next time our vacation can not include Missy.
Lynn and her family are fantastic. My dog has not taken to anyone outside of our family in years and did very well with Lynn. Couldn't be happier and will always go back to first in the future.
Lynn and her family were fantastic. They were very flexible with our changing and somewhat hectic schedule and treated our pup as if she was their own! We were sent a daily photo update of Layla and could tell she just loved being there. We would definitely like to book with Lynn and her family again! Thanks you guys!!
Great place for Lucy. Attentive and kind. A perfect place to board our Lucy.
