About Lindsay

Your pet will be treated like family in our peaceful dog-loving home. Whether your dog needs a long walk along the beach, a romp in the dog-park or just a leisurely stroll around the block, we'll tailor our activities to your dog's needs. We will do everything we can to make sure that your pet is safe, happy and secure in our home so you have peace of mind while your pet is with us. Our family dog is a 4 year old English Pointer mix named Gladys. She is goofy and friendly and loves to play with other dogs. She is very laid back but will hold her ground if a strong alpha dog attempts to dominate her. This has never caused a problem, but it is probably best for her not to share our house with a very aggressive or territorial dog. We have a 9 year old son who loves dogs, and our family welcomes the chance to care for your dog as if he or she was our very own.

There is someone home at our house most of the time, although upon occasion we will be away for a couple of hours to run errands--but rest assured that your dog will never be left alone for long periods of time if he or she stays with us!

Please note that while we update our calendar frequently, we prefer to limit our dog visitors to one at a time, or to 2 dogs who have been introduced to one another and get along. Because of this, there may be times that appear available on our calendar but where we are actually booked. This is done to ensure that your pet will enjoy a happy and stress-free "vacay" at our home!

We love dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds, but we are not able to board dogs who are not housebroken or dogs who chew up household items.

Lastly, we offer a $5 nightly discount for repeat Dog Vacay customers!

This was the fourth or fifth time that I left July with LIndsay, and I hope it won't be the last. I am completely confident in leaving my dog with Lindsay and her family. He has a great time every time and comes back rested and happy.
Lindsay is my go-to sitter for my dog. He always has a great time. I will keep dropping him off with Lindsay as long as she is willing to take care of him. There is no better place for him to stay.
Once again, Lindsay was a great host. This is my dog's favorite place to stay when I am away. I will use Lindsay and her family's hospitality again.
Lindsey and her family are fantastic! They sent seer pictures and took great care of our dog. We can't wait to use them again!
Our dog had a wonderful time with Lindsay and her family over Christmas. They have a lovely dog-friendly house and backyard and he settled in quickly. Lindsay was very attentive and flexible throughout the process, and kept us updated with photos and messages. We highly recommend them!
I could not have found a better host for Lucky than Lindsay and her family. From our first meeting it was clear that Lindsay had a genuine love of dogs, a kind and centered spirit and a sense of humor about life. Lindsay made every effort to understand Lucky's personality and habits (and my concerns about our first vacation away from him) prior to his stay with her so she could create an environment that would give me peace of mind and would be enjoyable for Lucky. Lindsay's family treated Lucky like their own. She kept me updated on his activities with pictures and texts and took great care of him in the midst of a deep freeze that was less than ideal for outdoor activity. Lucky was so at home with Lindsay and in her home; It was clear that he bonded with her.
Once again, Lindsay was a great host to my dog. It's pretty obvious he would have been happy to stay another night.
She was great. A huge dog lover. My dog slept with their adorable son. I felt like she really went out of her way to make sure my dog was well taken care of.
Lindsay was great. She is clearly a dog-lover (as is her son), and she was happy to have my pit mix stay with her. She was both responsible and communicative, and I would definitely leave my dog with her again. Thanks, Lindsay.
I never thought I could feel comfortable leaving Opie in a stranger's house, but my experience was totally positive. Opie had a little bit of anxiety when I left. Lindsay and her family were so patient with him and kept me posted at my request. Of course, by the time I picked him up, he had made himself totally at home!
The house is lovely and spacious, and the people who live there really know dogs. I would definitely recommend DogVacay and this particular host.
