About Linda

37 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Being a dog owner for decades, my husband and I truly enjoy opening our home to other pups. Our dog, Jake, is a twelve year old Golden Retriever. Jake loves other dogs of every size and age. We call him "switzerland" We understand how difficult it can be to leave your pup at a typical boarding facility. At our home, your dog will enjoy a stay filled with walks, green grass, and plenty of running room. I work part-time from home and we live on a quiet street in a small community. Ideal for dog walks! 8/1 UPDATE: I'm broken hearted to say that we lost our amazing, loving Jake last month at just shy of 13 years old. It has left a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. It was hard at first to have another dog here, but I quickly realized that the wonderful sight and sounds of another dog has helped rather than hurt. Its way too quiet in the house with out the jingle of a dog collar and the wagging of a tail.

Linda is THE BEST - we've never used a dog sitter before and were a bit hesitant, but after visiting Linda in her home, meeting her husband, seeing her set up, etc. we had a very good feeling. We left our two precious collies with her for 2 nights and they had a blast. Linda took great care of them and they seemed like they didn't want to leave when we came to pick them up! Will be using Linda again in the future and feel 100% confident that our boys will be safe and happy.

If anything, Linda and Martin pampered Shadow too much. The stay was very positive and Linda was most thorough in wanting to know all about Shadow: his likes/dislikes, habits, known commands and anything that would make his stay more comfortable. I will be booking with Linda again for a much longer stay. Five woofs for this DogVacay.

Linda is a wonderful Dog Vacay host. Leaving my Golden Retriever with her was the next best thing to being home. Maxx slept in her bedroom, next to her bed, just like he does at home. She updated us routinely with pictures and treated Maxx like he was her own. We have already signed Maxx up for a two week vacation with Linda.

Linda and Martin have been sitting for my German Shepherd, Roxie, on a regular basis for a year and a half since I returned to work part time. They welcomed her into their home and gave her a second family that she loves. And I have seen them do the same for all the other dogs that have come to visit during that time. They treat every dog like family and make every effort to stick to their normal regimen and routine so they feel at home. It means the world to me that I can go to work knowing she's so happy and well cared for. If you're out there looking for a sitter, you can't do any better than Linda and Martin.

Another great visit with Linda. I never worry when Jake is with her....I especially love that she sends me pictures so I can see him while I am away. So glad we found Linda!!
Linda took care of our two Labs, Abby & Walter for 6 days. She kept us updated every day with pictures and text. If I sent her a text, she always responded very quickly. She was also very accommodating to our needs and schedule. Will definitely use her services again next time we have a getaway.

Linda is the best! She gives personal care to the dogs she keeps. I highly recommend using her for your furry friends stay.
This was our first experience with Dog Vacay and it was outstanding. Linda is extremely pleasant & was very attentive to Abby. We would highly recommend Linda and Dog Vacay!! Karen & Jaz
As usual....Jake had an awesome time with Linda and I didn't worry! I don't know what we would do without Linda...for sure our vacations would not be as relaxing and fun. It is great when you can go away and not worry about your baby. We missed him, of course, but knew he was taken care of. Thanks Linda!!

Augie's second visit with Linda was smooth. Augie felt so at home he ran to her, tail wagging. She kept in touch with texts and photos. Augie was healthy and happy upon our return. Linda is warm and professional.
I brought my two fur babies to Linda's twice now....once for a week, and once for a long weekend. When I brought them back the second time, they were very excited to be back & ran right into the house the minute I opened my car door. I was very comfortable with leaving them there knowing they would be in good hands. Linda and her husband are both very sweet and accommodating. I could tell my dogs both felt at home and that they were treated as family. We will definitely use Linda again. I highly recommend Linda!

Augie spent a week with Linda. Upon our return, he was calm, healthy and happy. Linda kept us updated with photos and text messages. Her care of Augie was so good, we will call Linda again when Augie needs a future dog vacay. Thank you, Linda!
Linda was amazing ! She opened her home and family up for 6 nights to my 9 year old Lab. We did a meet & great prior to leaving my dog and Bella took to Linda right away. Bella has some failing parts and requires medication which Linda was more than willing to do. I received a text nightly on how Bella was doing and sometime pictures! Upon arrival home Bella did not appear to be stressed and seems very happy. I would use Linda again and highly recommend her...

Linda was awesome! Jake had an issue and she kept me informed and really looked after Jake. I wasn't worried in the least....I knew she was keeping an eye on him. Jake seemed very happy and at home when I picked him up. I will use Linda again.
Allie had a great time at Linda's playing with Jake. She was exhausted when she came home. Linda made Allie feel at home. It was very comfortable doing the meet and greet. We took the dogs for a quick walk to see how they would get along. During the stay Linda kept me updated and texted pictures of Allie playing, which put me at easy. Linda has great communication and is very quick to reply to emails. Overall I am very happy with my experience and I am so happy Allie had a blast. Linda is my go to person when Allie needs to be boarded or stay for a day!

Roxie has had 2 days with Linda and Jake and I couldn't be happier. By day 2 Roxie settled right in and it means so much to know that she has a second home while I am at work. Thank you, Linda!
We were extremely happy with Linda and her home was a great place for our boys for the day. Highly recommend!
