Sam has great stay
Linda was amazing! She took excellent care of Finn, and was very understanding and accommodating when my flight was changed unexpectedly. You can rest assured that she is going to love your pup like her own when he's there!
I have an older dog and I always worry about leaving him for as long as 2 weeks at a time. But I feel very comfortable when he is with Linda. She takes special care to make sure he is comfortable and gets to eat when he wants. And she sends pictures and updates so you can always see that your pet is well taken care of.

We had a wonderful first experience with Dog Vacay over the Labor Day weekend. We selected Linda G. We took our beloved Beagle for a meet and greet. He was calm and happy during the meet and greet. Linda had 4 dogs of her own and two boarders with her. She mentioned she would have 4 boarders over the weekend. I was very worried about how Buddy would deal with so many other dogs, as he is timid in demeanor. Well, Buddy did just fine! He had so much fun. Linda sent me video's and messages. She told me he was having fun and I could plainly see that his tail was wagging and he was having fun playing. We felt like we went off for the long weekend and Buddy was at "camp". We were very pleased with Linda's loving care. She love's dogs. It was obvious in watching her interact with the dogs and how she kept up with the messages and video's. I highly recommend using Linda. She has years of experience with dogs both professionally and personally. Dog Vacay is a great alternative to kenneling. I don't think I could kennel our beloved Beagle again after experiencing Linda's loving care.

This was one the easiest reservations I've ever made. Linda responded right away and made it really nice for me to leave my babies with her. I hate that in traditional kennels dogs are locked up for so many hours of the day. Knowing my guys got to run around and play with Linda's dogs made me feel really good. Linda sent me photos and a video while I was away of my dogs playing with the others. I think my babies were a bit intimidated by her bunch but once they fell in with the crowd they had a great stay and I didn't feel guilty about leaving them. Kudos to Linda and thank you very much. I will schedule again with Doggie Vacay.

Linda's place is second home for our Beagle now.
We were worry free once we leave our beagle at Linda's place. This is our fourth reservation with her and we are very satisfied.
I'm so glad I picked Linda for my first dog vacay stay! Dixie had a wonderful time and made a new best friend! Will use this service again.
During our trip Linda kept us informed how our dogs were doing with photos, texts, and a short video. Cute pictures and video! Made us feel our two dogs were well taken care of and pampered. Thank you Linda for a job well done!
Another good visit with Linda thru DogVacay!
Linda does an amazing job. I feel I can trust her to take good care of my two dogs.
Linda was once again AWESOME taking care of our 2 furry kids. When we had to make some changes to our vacation plans she was more than accommodating to us. We will surely continue taking our pups there in the future! :)

We recently got a new puppy and needed to find a "home away from home" for him. I came across Linda's page and got in touch with her - she quickly responded to my queries and we had a meet and greet. I am so glad that I found Linda - being first time fur-parents, we were VERY nervous about leaving our puppy with a stranger. However, after meeting Linda, we felt very comfortable. Linda reinforced our comfort by continuously sending us pictures and videos of our puppy playing. Linda genuinely cares about her dogs - she asked us to bring anything that our puppy sleeps in so he is comfortable. She also makes sure that dogs play with other dogs that are similar i.e. she doesn't allow aggressive dogs to play with the quiet ones. She has a ton of background working with dogs so that's a plus. She was very open to answering all of our questions and we never felt rushed. Next time we leave town, we will be leaving our puppy with Linda and not worry about him at all!

We had to do some last minute travel changes to which Linda was graciously accommodating! Princess always comes back so happy and so do we when we get pictures of our pup through our travels!!! Best dog sitter there is :)
Linda is an awesome host and did a great job will Gizmo. With all the videos that she sent me to show me how comfortable Gizmo is and how much fun he was having.
Linda was great! She kept us updated on Angel's stay through video and pics. We will definitely use her again when our four legged child needs a vacay spot.
Linda was wonderful. Henry had a blast staying with her and he didn't want to leave! Will definitely call her again for my next vacation.
We used Linda's service first time based on the review at Dogvacay . She did not disappoint us. Our dog has good time with Linda and she keep us posted about him every day. She is prompt in response too.
Thi is the third reservation for Jesse with Linda and she is awesome!. Jesse always has a blast playing with Linda's dog family and any other dogs being boarded. Being an only pet, Jesse wears himeslf out with all of the playmates. Linda sends me daily video clips which help me feel less lonesome for Jesse.

I woud highly recommend Linda to sit or board your pet, without any hesitation.

Thanks, again, Linda!!

I love Linda! She is the best!
Sam had a good time. Happy boy.
Linda was great and my dogs enjoyed their stay. I highly recommend her services.
Linda is a sweetheart. I have 3 Olde English Bulldogges (for those who may not know this breed is a it is a very low energy breed). Picture if you will.... when I went to pick them up I saw Linda on the other side of her glass front door negotiating with a 20 lbs dog to go into her room so that I could walk in. After several failed attempts finally the puppy agreed and went in to the room. I walked in greeted her and we both made our way to the kennel room. Linda opened one of the kennels and Sheba (my 2 year old) made a b line for the front door. I didn't think anything of this, greeted Sheba, put on her collar, and got her to my SUV. Then I went for Val my other 2 year old and he did the same exact thing. Keep in mind that the back door is where she would take them out to play not the front door. On my way back to the kennel room Linda say that she didn't think that they had made a good connection and suggested for me to find a new kennel in the future. I say "I'm sorry to hear" (thinking no kidding they will not be back) Then Linda say they are too energetic. Ahhhh ok? If you can see pictures I have here Sheba and Trixie are sleeping and Val is sitting.
Finally I went for Trixie my 6 year old and she wanted to do the same as the first two but I blocked her way and made her sit, then put the collar on and took her to the SUV.

I will say this, Linda had a few other dogs at her place and may have had a busy week or month (Linda reschedule our initial visit 3 times).

Returning visit. Sam loves Linda and her facility.
Linda was great! This was our first time leaving our dog with someone and she really went out of her way to make us and our dog feel comfortable. We needed someone last minute and Linda responded to our request within an hour and we were able to drop off our dog that morning. We even received video updates of the dogs, which was a nice surprise! We will definitely use Linda for our next trip.

Surprisingly good and qualified hostess. Experience working in a vet's facility and kennels provides unusually competent care. Well laid out home and features providing safe and sanitary care. Short videos each day showing actual interaction with other dogs in her care.

Thank you, Linda! You're the BEST!
Linda has proven to be an exceptional host for my one year old mixed breed (J.R. Terrier/Chihuahua), Jesse. This was a repeat booking, making this Jesse's 2nd boarding with Linda. She keeps you informed about how your pet is adapting and she always has lots of pet playmates to keep Jesse working off his non stop energy.

I will definitely book future boardings with Linda and enjoy knowing that Jesse is in excellent care.

I can't give enough positive feedback to accurately describe the care that Linda provided to our two dogs. From the moment they arrived I felt like not only would she care for them but provide them with an atmosphere of almost being at home. She is so considerate and would recommend her to anyone that needs a dog sitter. I will definetely be using her again!!!!
Read More...
Linda provided excellent are and attention for Jesse. She sent daily videos and very easy to work with. The companionship of the other dogs was a real treat for Jesse.

I would absolutely recommend Linda and she would be my 1st choice for future boarding.

Fantastic dog sitter. Sent updated videos regularly to let us know our blueberry was in good hands. Will use again for sure!
Our dog had a great stay with Linda. We enjoyed the videos that Linda sent showing our dog playing with other pups. Linda included commentary with the video that helped us understand what our dog's stay was like. Although Linda lives far from us, we will use her again. She went beyond what we have experienced in the past. Our dog had a three week stay and we are extremely pleased!

I feel very comforted knowing my two dogs are with Linda in her home. She pampers them and keeps me updated on they are doing!
Our dog Shelby had a great time with Linda! She had so much fun playing with the other dogs that were there as well as getting some special one on one attention. We loved getting videos almost everyday from Linda, so we could see how well Shelby was doing. We would definitely bring Shelby to Linda again the next time we need a sitter.

Dogs seemed to have a good time
There are simply not enough words to describe just how FABULOUS Linda is! I was having anxiety about where to leave my 14 year old little 8.5 pound yorkie mix while I was on vacation... for 20 days! I had never left her alone with anyone, let alone for that long. She had been previously boarded once, with a sibling, but he had since passed. I happened to find Linda about 5 days before I was to leave for vacation. A blessing for sure! I visited Linda's house before I went on vacation and brought Dixie for a meet-n-greet. I knew immediately that I wouldn't have to worry one second about leaving Dixie with Linda. She is wonderful with all of the dogs she keeps. She treated my baby extra special. Dixie chose Linda's bathroom as her bedroom, and Linda accommodated her lol.... Linda sends pictures and videos of the dogs just about every day!! They are hilarious! You can tell that she loves the dogs and they are all being well cared for. She is very experienced and really looks out for any signs of distress or issues that she may observe. I went on vacation and so did Dixie! I had a wonderful vacation and never once worried about my sweet Dixie. Linda is fabulous. I know I'll never have to worry again about who will keep Dixie when I go on vacation! LINDA!!! Thank you, Linda, for taking such good care of my Dixie!

Linda is awesome and takes very good care of my yorkie!
Linda is amazing! I write this just as we are about to go out of town again, and our Ellie will be staying for a few days for the second time. We originally had a meet and greet and I felt very relieved because I knew (as an over-protective dog mom) that Linda would take great care of her. She sends photos and videos, which I loved, and even accommodates a raw diet. We are so thankful (and relieved!) to have found her. Highly recommended!

When we got ready for our week-long trip, we contacted the lady that we have left Miss Bling with for a couple of years. In all honesty, we were panicked to find she had moved. We trusted her so much with our little dog. I went to the Dog Vacay page and started reading reviews in our area, knowing that we would never find anyone as good and kind as our previous sitter. We chose Miss Linda because she had some really good reviews. The choice exceeded our expectations! Miss Linda kept us informed with emails and pictures the entire week. She said Miss Bling stayed in her lap most of the time, so I knew she was getting the same spoiling she gets at home. She even checked after we were home to make sure our dog was okay. If you are looking for a sitter that you can trust and who really cares about the animals, call Miss Linda. We will absolutely use her the next time we go out of town. Thanks Miss Linda!

Yoyo had another great stay! I was confident that my fur baby would be taken well care of by Linda, which allowed me to have a great time on my trip, not worrying how Yoyo was doing.
Linda is always so amazing! We lost one of our little dogs in Feb. of this year and Linda goes out of her way to make our other little guy (Finn) feel extra relaxed when he is there. She always goes the extra mile for these dogs and we love knowing this is Finn's home away from home.

Linda is a great host. She helped me taking care of Hana during independence day weekend, and took extra care and gave extra attention to Hana because she's scared of the firework. It made me feel special, and Hana came back all happy.
Linda is wonderful. Kaiah thoroughly loves the dog vacay's with her. Love the videos we receive daily from Linda. Trust her with our baby. Will continue to use her services every time we are in need! Highly recommend her vacay services!
This was the first time we went on vacation and didn't bring penny so I was a little nervous and concerned about her. She is a rescue dog so she is a little skittish at first but very sweet and friendly.
But she had a great time and I felt so much better when Linda sent me photos and videos of her playing with the other dogs. I will definitely leave her with Linda next time we are on vacation.

Linda's the BEST! Shes cared for my 2 dogs Blackie&Cody several times. Shes like youve known her since forever. Theres been times ive called spur of the moment and shes been a doll each time. Thanks for being our Angel Linda!!! I recommend this lady to the world!! Shes AWESOME!

I am SO happy to have found Linda! She was the perfect match for my springer spaniel. Her home is lovely, spotless, and dog-friendly. Also, the backyard was a great getaway for the dogs. Linda is experienced in pet care, as she also works part time at a local pet resort. When at home --- as she is most of the day --- the dogs are free to roam around the house or yard. She actually let my dog sleep on her bed each night! I LOVED receiving pics and videos each day during my two and a half week venture overseas. I didn't feel the usual "guilt" when dropping my dog off for dog care. I HIGHLY recommend Linda!

Linda was a wonderful host! She sent videos every day, so I could tell that he really was having a good time by his body language more so than a picture. She's also very responsive when you contact her which is very reassuring. My Jake came back happy and seemed to genuinely enjoy his dog vacay! We will definitely be using Linda again!

My dog, Joey, used to stay in some other boarding facilities, and everytime he was sick (ear problem, eye problem, losing a lot of weight, etc). This time, I did not want my dog to be sick again, and fortunately my friend recommended Linda to me. So, I asked Linda to take care of my dog, and it was a great experience. Linda sent me videos every day, and also sent me a photo of him, so I was able to know how my dog was doing in her house. Also, when he did not finish his food, Linda gave some wet-food to him. (So this time, my dog did not lose weight! Also he wasn't sick!) When I sent her an email with some minor worries, she replied to my email promtly and made me relieved. My dog needs people loves, and everytime she gave my dog a lot of love. I will definately ask Linda to take care of my dog again. Strongly recommend!

I took Henry to Linda's because I needed to board him for a night but also because he needed some play time with other dogs. I liked the fact that Linda has other 'resident' dogs that looked friendly. I was so happy to see Henry playing in the yard with his new friends! He was having a blast! I received 2 videos of Henry and also a pic. Linda even went out of her way to accommodate me when I had to drop off Henry late. When I got him back, he has relaxed and Happy. I will definitely be taking Henry back to play with his new found friends!

We hate leaving our babies when we travel but Linda made us feel better with her pictures and videos that she sent every day. Our boys looked right at home. I love how they were able to be in a home environment and not be locked up in a noisy kennel all day. They could get one-on-one attention and lay on the couch and I didn't have to worry about them being scared like they would be in a boarding kennel.

This was our first time to use DogVacay and it will not be our last!! When researching the website for a sitter, Linda lives only 3 streets away in our subdivision and the 100+ positive client reviews made her our choice. They were not wrong - she is so accommodating to the needs of the dogs - my 2 miniature poodles have cataracts and are essentially blind. She is so loving and I really enjoyed all the pictures she sent - especially the video with my dogs and my daughter's dogs ( yes, they were staying, also). We were at a wedding in Syracuse, NY and I was showing the pics & explaining the DogVacay program. She really takes watching the dogs seriously - her home is organized for their stay. We will definitely be contacting her again if we need to board our dogs!!

Linda took care of my 13 & 14 year old Min. Schnauzers while I was on a 10 day European river cruise. It was the first time I had left them with someone other than close friends (who traveled with me), so I was naturally a bit apprehensive, especially considering the age of my guys and the fact that one has a heart condition and has to be medicated twice a day. Linda sent pictures and videos often (she would have done it daily, but it was difficult at times to receive messages), so I knew they were doing well. She allowed them to sleep in her bed and assured me they were getting along well with her own dogs. There were times when Bailey, my oldest guy was very cranky, and Baxter didn't want to take his medication, but she handled both situations. I would definitely use Linda again should the occasion arise and would recommend her highly. Thanks to Dogvaycay for their services.

Linda took excellent care of my dog Reina while I was abroad for a week. She sent frequent e-mails with videos and updates of Reina's stay. Reina had a great time with Linda, and I definitely recommend her services.
Linda is our 'go to' resource in TX. My little guy is very relaxed there and seems to feel 'at home' when we have to go out of town. I feel confident my pup is safe and being 'loved on' by Linda. She has a true heart for dogs.
Linda has always been awesome with Millie. Millie enjoys her stays. She is very accommodating, sends frequent video emails updating us about Millie. Overall, we have always vacayed Millie with Linda and will continue to do so. We trust Linda and recommend her highly!

We always book with Linda. She is exceptional and Kiko always comes home happy and healthy!
Linda took great care of my dog! She sent me pictures of my dog during her stay, which let me know she was definitely being taken care of.
Linda was a very nice person. She gave us video updates of our dogs while they were with her and they came back safe and sound. Would definitely recommend.
Dixie and Roscoe had a GREAT week with Linda! She sent us pictures and updates of out furr babies daily. They were comfortable around her and in her home. We will definitely be having them stay with her again!
Linda is the best. My dogs love her and are happy there.
Linda was absolutely amazing! I hadn't left my 6 month old puppy with anyone for more than a day or so and had to leave for 10 days over the holidays but I was delighted to find my e-mail inbox filled with videos and pictures of my puppy throughout my trip. My puppy had an absolute ball while we were gone and I would highly recommend Linda to my friends!
Read More...
Linda is the nicest person and she makes the dogs feel very comfortable. She sent us videos so we could see how our dogs were doing. The dogs always looked happy and right at home playing with the other dogs. I would use Linda again.
At the last minute we couldn't take our babies with us on a Christmas trip and Linda willingly came to our rescue. As busy as she was, Linda still sent us videos to reassure us that the boys were having a good Christmas holiday at Grandma's house.
Linda is wonderful, and my yorkie loves her and going to her house! It is very clean and Linda is very good with the dogs. I highly recommend her!
This was our first time to use dog vacay, and it went really well. Linda was flexible about us dropping Baxter off and picking him up with times and such. She sent videos of Baxter which helped when I missed him. If we went on vacation again and my family was not available, I will be back to have Baxter stay with her again.

This was the 2nd time I left my babies with Linda. She was fantastic and very flexible with my schedule! I am so happy to have found someone I can trust to leave them with if I need to go out of town. Linda was so good at updating me and sending me pictures of them while I was gone. Thank you Linda!!!

Outstanding service. Linda is exceptional. We have been using her services for many years now. She is quite accommodating, very flexible with scheduling and above all a truly kind and caring person. She has a natural flair with dogs and loves them. Millie has always enjoyed her vacations with her and we recommend her highly.

Linda was great to work with when we needed an overnight stay for our high energy foster dog, Sara. To start, Linda answered all of the questions that I had initially and then made it very easy for me to come and do a pre-visit. On the day of the stay, we received videos of Sara meeting her stay-mates. They appeared to be getting along great and having a good time together. Linda was flexible on when we could drop her off and pick her up - really making the whole stay process quite easy. I would definitely recommend Linda and would trust her with my own two dogs in a heartbeat.

Linda is THE BEST!! After our first meet and greet I knew that I had found Jorden's home away from home. Linda took great care of him and sent me photos and videos the entire time I was away. I will admit this was the very first time that I did not worry about my dog while on vacation. I am glad to know I have found someone who I am more than comfortable with leaving my dog with.
Read More...
Another great vacay! Our pups have stayed with Linda 4 or 5 times since we moved here in May, so glad we found her! I love the video updates, all the dogs always look like they are having a great time!
Riley had a blast with all the other pups!
Linda was so amazing! She was able to accommodate our three dogs with very short notice and she went out of her way to make sure each of our dog's needs were met. Our anxiety about leaving the dogs washed away as we left our pups in her hands and Linda kept our minds at ease with numerous texts and emails of pictures and videos showing the canine members of our family mixing and mingling with the other dogs and looking very happy. You couldn't have made our experience any better. Thanks again Linda!

Ms. Linda was very kind and seemed loving towards my babies. She was able to work with my dogs special needs including arthritis and medications. We had a great experience.
Linda was great with Nymeria. She was so comfortable there I think she thought it was her new home. We will definitely be using Linda again!!!
This was the second time that Linda watched our baby girl, and it was again a great experience! Linda was very flexible and was graciously able to work with our unexpected last minute schedule changes.

Mika stayed with Linda for 3 days, and we received several videos during that time of her playing with some of the other pups. It's so nice to know that your baby is safe and having fun while you're gone. It really gives you a peace of mind so that you can enjoy your trip and not have to worry about your pup!

Many thanks :)

Another perfect vacay! This was our 3rd vacay with Linda and she was amazing again. One of my dogs is fussy and doesn't like to eat while at someone else's house and he was so comfortable he didn't have any problems. Loved the videos and updates i receivee! Booking again for thanksgiving! Thank you!!

Thank you Linda, My girls were quite happy!!!
Linda was very helpful with our arrangement with Truffle. The timing was just right and easy to arrange with Linda. She and her rest of the dogs treated Truffle as their own and looks like she had tons of fun! Always recommended :)
Jackie and Spock had a great time. Communication from Linda is always good. She is very good with my dogs. It is so nice to have someone as caring as Linda watching out for them when I can't
Linda was incredible with my Riley! He got so much playtime with other dogs and personal attention! The daily videos she sent helped put my mind at ease, knowing my sweet boy was enjoying himself!
On their second visit with Linda, we left our grand dogs for 9 nights while we were on a cruise. One had a slight problem with his ear, but being a weekend when we dropped him off, we didn't have time for a vet visit. When we told Linda, she said she had some ear wash and meds for that and she would treat him for a day or two and watch him and take him to the vet if it seemed necessary. That is why I love to leave our babies with Linda. She knows dogs, knows what they need and will get it for them. Our dogs are used to sleeping with their people and Riley, the smaller of the two, slept with Linda and Ches slept by her bed, just like home! We won't leave these dogs anywhere else as long as Linda can take them, even though it's over an hour to her house from ours. Linda is worth it!

I was absolutely and totally amazed at the way my Bichon took to liking Linda. She, Linda, allowed Muffin to sit in her lap almost all day long. Muffin slept with her every night and was used to Linda from our first vIsit.
I'll bring Muffin back here every time I go out of town, from now on.

Linda is the best. Always makes drop off and pick up fit my schedule. Buster is always excited when we arrive at her house. She goes the extra mile to make sure he feels at home and sends pics and video when you are away for a few days. I have used her services several times and each experience has been great.

It is very clear walking into her home that Linda loves animals! Everything was clean and tidy, and she had kennels and blankets all ready to go for my two dogs. I felt very comfortable when I left her house, knowing they would have fun while their people were away! The videos she sent to us gave us a fun insight into their activities. Upon pickup, everything was bagged up and ready to go. I will certainly use Linda again, and recommend others to give her a try!

I now have one more person that I trust with my furbabies and that person is Linda! The best care ever and she is so accommodating. Thank you Linda! Trudi-Baby & Taco
We pretty much come here all the time now! ( : Frequency speaks volumes. Linda has close to 100 recommendations so you can bet she is a sure thing. She has a true heart for all animals.
Our first time to use this service and we really enjoyed our time away without worrying about our dogs. Linda is a great care giver and kept us aware of how our dogs were doing each day. We would recommend her to anyone!
We've become regulars with Linda. We just got a new puppy a day before we were to go out of town. The puppy wasn't feeling well, but we trusted Linda to know if the puppy would require medical attention. Linda kept a close eye on her and contacted us that she was worried for the puppy and she took her to a vet for us on a holiday weekend. The vet turned out to be closed for the holiday, but we were able to take her to our vet when we got home and everything turned out to be fine with some medicine. I would not have done that with anyone else, but knew Linda would proved some extra TLC for the new puppy. Also, typical for a stay with Linda: we were treated to daily videos of our other dog playing at Linda's.
Read More...
Linda was awesome and that's an understatement! She sent us about 5 videos of Gunther & Elway playing with the other dogs she had there. They get along great with the other dogs there and we will be using Linda again for sure when we go out of town again!

Thanks Linda! :)

This was the first time we did this, and it was great! I did not expect so much care or attention. Linda was awesome and sweet! She was very knowledgable with the dogs and knows the drill on what to do in every situation. Our dog, Woody, usually sleeps with us in the bed, and Linda kindly offered to do the same! During our vacation, she would also send us text with updates and pictures! Overall, it was a very awesome experience, and I would for sure have Linda take care of Woody on future occasions!

Linda has taken care of 2 dogs numerous times over the past few years. She is soooo great with them!! My dogs are happy staying with her and she sends me video clips and text messages while I'm away. I can relax and not worry about my dogs when they are with her. Thank you Linda!!

I use Linda every time I need a sitter for my dog. My dog has a good bit of engery but when I pick him up, he is nice and tired. She also does a great job of knowing my dog's needs and keeps me posted on with videos and pictures. I absolutely love using her!

Gizmo always loves to see Linda. He feels right at home and gets excited when he knows he is going to visit her. She is always available when we need her.
We are so thankful to have Linda as our home away from home for our 3 boys. They are always excited to see her and we have peace of mind knowing they are happy and loved.
Linda has Sadie several times and as always my dog has been well taken care of and loved. Great experience!
I paid $450 to use this lady for the first time. She was highly recommended on the web site. However, she got the dates wrong and called me a week before our trip wondering when we would bring our dog over. I had to remind her it was the following week, and she was confused...this lack of attention set off an alarm in my head.

The worse thing that happened is that she overdosed my dog (a 19 pound pug) with some medication (prednisone) I left for her. The bottle of medicine clearly states 1 pill 3 times a week if needed for scratching...a total of 3 pills a week. I went over these instructions with her carefully. She gave my dog 2 pills a day, every day for the 18 days we were gone. That is 14 pills a week. My dog is acting very strange, lethargic, not eating, wheezing in his chest. I called my vet and told him what had happened. He has advised me to carefully watch the dog this weekend and bring him in on Monday if he has not improved. In addition the dog's nose was filthy (a pug needs his nose cleaned regularly, and his left ear was bleeding inside) I will file against the insurance for the vet bills and will never use this sitter again.

Our dog Riley had a great stay with Linda!! She sent us frequent photos and videos of her playing with friends and enjoying herself while we were away. Would highly recommend Linda to anyone looking for a place for their dog to stay.
Everything went smoothly with our first dog vacay. Linda loves dogs and our dog was very comfortable in her home. We would recommend her and would use her again. I was very impressed that despite the number of dogs she boards her home smells great and there was no visible pet hair. Our dog was happy and did not seem stressed or upset when we picked her up. Considering this was her first stay away from home that is saying a lot!

From the very first contact this visit I knew I could relax once again about my precious Yorkie, Scooter! Leaving Scooter with Linda is almost better than home because he has doggie friends and plenty of opportunities for socialization.
I received text and video's, which brought both tears and smiles, to my face and, of course, I had to share them with everyone.
Linda, is a natural dog lover and she is so wise about assessing the personality and needs of your pet, as well as the owner.
Linda is jewel in this area of pet care. 5 stars is not adequate to describe her care and concern!

We would definitely recommend Linda's home to place your beloved pets for any length of time. She was accommodating, has a secure fenced in good size yard, and comfortable home with separate rooms for the large and small dogs. Linda sent videos every few days and texts so we were happy to see our dogs being well taken care of! We have Lilly a high energy, rambunctious dog and a very nervous little Chihuahua so it put our mind at ease and we enjoyed "our" long vacation without worry! Linda was amazing! We are thankful for her and DogVacay.

Linda is great. She is very flexible and has a natural love for dogs!! Our home was being repainted and we needed more time for the fumes to go away before bringing our dogs home and Linda quickly set up another reservation through DogVacay allowing our dogs two more days with her. Sensing how stressed our dogs were during our remodel, Linda gave them extra TLC. Thanks, Linda - you're awesome!!

Linda is awesome. We are now regulars with her, because we trust her so much to take care of our dogs. She sends videos a couple times a day showing the dogs enjoying their stay at her house.
Linda is now our 'go to' resource for pet 'baby-sitting' (and these pups are indeed my babies). Linda is responsive and always gives me text updates with photos and videos. I like the way she closely observes the dogs' personalities and interaction needs. I feel like my older dog stays relaxed, and my younger dog gets the 'play-time' and socialization he needs when they stay with her. On our last visit, she even called my vet to confirm she had a prescription drug dosage correct for my older dog. My husband and I can now take advantage of regular travel and feel like our pets are having a vacation with ‘Grandma’ at the same time!

Linda was awesome! From the meet-n-greet to the stay. Kaiah was so happy playing with the other dogs. We received videos every day and sometimes twice a day. It was wonderful to know our baby was so well taken care of. We will definitely use Linda anytime we need to leave our baby with someone in the future!

Our lab has stayed with Linda C 3 or 4 times now and we are very pleased. Linda provides daily updates and videos so we know our Ginger is getting along fine. Linda is very knowledgable and really enjoys getting to know all her guests. Ginger also does not mind when we leave her (as she did with other boarders). We are very thankful to have found this host.

Linda was so great. This was our 'pre' visit prior to our trip in a week where my boys will stay with her. The guys did great and Linda sent me lots of videos to keep me informed as she knew I was concerned. Her commitment to the animals is very apparent. Her home is clean, calm and has such a good 'dog' vibe to it. She accommodates these little four-legged guest with such ease. I feel confident they are having a great experience when I am out of town.

We had only left Amy one time overnight at a "dog hotel" but this was going to be a week long stay. We were very worried as she is a very nervous dog and after reviewing many options we contacted Linda. We visited with her before deciding and were very happy with what we saw. And believe me, we were not dissapointed. She took very good care of Amy, sending us pictures, videos and little updates every day. The whole family would gather to see Amy's little videos. Very, very happy.

Simba had an absolutely fantastic time with Linda! I was so nervous about boarding Simba for the first time but then I saw how knowledgable and great Linda is with all of the dogs... She makes sure that all of the dogs get along well while playing, or keeps ones separated that don't get along or there's a big size difference, etc so everyone has a safe and fun vacation. Linda truly treats the dogs like her own, loving on them and everything just like their fur-parent(s) would... including sending lots of pictures and videos of Simba and the other dogs playing! Linda is not only great with the dogs but also the parents too. She is so understanding and really works with you for drop-off/pick-up, including staying up a little late when your flight is delayed like mine was so I could still pick-up Simba. :) It was a great experience and I will definitely take Simba for doggie vacations with Linda again!!

Linda's the best!
Linda was great ! It was like taking your dog to Grandmas house. Gizmo loved Linda! He can't wait to go back! Her house was so nice!
If you are wondering who to leave your beloved dog with while you are out of town, look no further! Linda is absolutely wonderful in all aspects. She responds very quickly and is very flexible. While having a meet and greet with her, her love of animals was very obvious as well as her knowledge of how to handle dogs who might be apprehensive in a new environment and with other dogs. I had peace of mind, knowing I was leaving our dog in Linda's care. The pictures and video updates each day were wonderful! Although Linda is a little drive from where I live, I will definitely be using her again in the future!

Linda was absolutely wonderful with my pup Cora- I think she was pretty bummed leaving! Linda provided several status videos a day & even brought out a pool for the dogs to play in which is Cora's favorite thing. Not only that, Linda accommodated my crazy schedule & did not complain once that I had to drop her off extremely early and pick her up late. My flight got delayed so I was so thankful for her flexibility. It is obvious this host actually loves and cares about the dogs she keeps & I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!
Read More...
Five stars all the way! From answering all my questions, to the meet and greet, to the stay, and to the pick up, everything was faultless. Linda's place is very dog friendly and she truly loves dogs. I was sent one to two videos a day which may be feel better about leaving my dog while out of town. She texted about any concerns that happened with my pup. I will definitely use her again the next time I go out of town.

Jasper and Maggie had a great time while we were in Mexico! This was their second Vacay with Linda and I can tell they had another great time! Love the videos we received each day, all dogs looked like hey were having a blast playing with each other!
Linda was fantastic, very good with our dog who isn't around other animals much and needed a little extra love. We received videos and updates while we were gone. Highly recommend!
This was our second stay with Linda. The dogs were well taken care of which eased my anxiety of leaving them so I could enjoy my trip. I highly recommend her!
Linda is great! We just moved to TX and have never boarded our fur babies with anyone other than family. All our worries and stress were immediately gone and our dogs had a great time!! I loved the videos that were emailed to us. I'm so glad we found someone who takes great care of our pups!

Linda is outstanding. We have used Linda's services several times now and will continue to come back for more. Very kind and caring person. Regular updates, pictures, videos etc. I know Millie is excited every time she visits. Great! Thanks!
Linda has been sitting my dogs at least a couple of times each year for the past few years. She is very good with my dogs and she keeps me updated while I'm away with pictures and text messages and I'll even call and talk with her. She is great!
Linda was AWESOME!! She sent us daily videos of Dexter playing with the other dogs. Dexter had a pawsome time at Linda's. We felt a great peace of mind knowing that our fur baby was in good hands. I am glad that we decided to use DogVacay and found Linda. We will definitely be using Linda again!!

Our experience with Linda was very good. We are apprehensive about leaving our boy in kennels and decided to try DogVacay knowing our Remi can be a handful (a bit hyper and barky and he doesn't care for large dogs). We met Linda at her home prior to making our decision and she handles the pets very well. Proper introductions are made and she gave us a tour of her home which was very clean for having a handful of dogs running around. Linda gave us daily updated via videos, pictures and text to help ease our minds and allowing us to relax while away on vacation. Linda was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. When we picked up Remi at Linda's, he was very calm and relaxed which shows he felt at home! Thanks Linda!

This was our second time to leave our dogs with Linda. They love it and we do too. The dogs were actually very excited to return so soon after our first visit!
After meeting Linda, I knew I had nothing to worry about and neither did my dog Kiko. Linda is friendly, knowledgeable about keeping dogs healthy and happy, and she takes time to get to know you and your pet. I will definitely have my dog stay with Linda again. Thank you!!

Jackie had a wonderful time. Linda was great with her and very patient. She sent sent me update every day. I would definitely use her again
Linda did a great job introducing the dogs to her little pack and making sure they were relaxed and happy on out meet and great. My three got their own bedroom so they could rest comfortably at night. All my instructions were followed, and I received frequent photo and video updated so I could see that they were having a great time playing with the other pups. Pick up was easy and my girls were happy and relaxed.

WE WERE VERY HAPPY WITH THE CARE THAT PEPPY RECEIVED DURING THE STAY WITH LINDA. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER FOR THE FUTURE
Linda was FANTASTIC!!! Our dog, SJ is just like a child to my wife and me so we are very cautious with whom we have watch SJ. Linda immediately put our worried minds at ease with her relaxed and happy personality. She never objected or complained about our calls to check in on SJ and even texted me several pictures of SJ at play. We are very happy SJ now has a "Grandmother" to visit with when we are out of town.

Wanting the world to know Linda is AWESOME!!! My husband works in Afghanistan and he came home for R@R and we had a Trip to make to see his parents but hadnt thought of our dog Blackie till last minute, but found Linda here after 9pm and needed her like yesterday because we were to leave for our trip same early morning and we found our ANGEL. Linda excepted our dog Blackie into her beautiful home for 4 days and after 11pm last minute and we were able to hit the road a couple of hours later. OMG she was a lifesaver. She sent videos 2 times a day which was AWESOME and text messages as well. I'd tell any and everyone i know I recommend her to the fullest. My Yorkie is very spoiled he stays right under me and rarely has other dogs to play with so that gave him plenty of time to interact and play with her dogs i was pleased with as well. Thank You Soooooooooooo Much Linda and i can assure you i will take my little baby nowhere farther than YOU....Thankz Bunchez-- The McGinnis's

We have used Linda many times in the past, and have always been very happy. This time we had to drop off our pup because we were having our first child, and Linda worked with us on the timing for pickup and drop off... It was great that she let us know she could adjust the pickup and drop off times if anything came up after the delivery. Thank you so much again Linda!!!

Linda was great - very friendly and easy to work with and excellent in terms of dog knowledge and care. Our lab tends to be a bit timid, and Linda did everything possible to help her get acquainted with the other dogs and feel comfortable. Linda also sent us several texts and videos to let us know how our dog was doing.

Excellent experience - will never board at a kennel again!! I picked up my dogs after a week with Linda and they were happy and healthy.

When my wife dropped the dogs off, it became clear that our larger dog was a little too big for the crate Linda uses when she is not at home, so she went out and bought a new crate to accomidate my dog!!

Loved the daily videos of our dogs playing with each other and her dogs. Great peace of mind when gone for a week.

Will definitely use Linda again and I highly recommend her!

As always, Linda is a very kind, gracious and dependable host. Millie always comes home excited and the constant picture and video messages are a joy. Highly dependable and trustworthy, loving caregiver. She is clearly a dog lover and we are fortunate we found her.

This was Casey's 2nd visit with Linda. She is so good with him. He was happy and well cared for. Linda is a great communicator and shared lots of pics and videos of Casey while we were gone. Thank you Linda!!
Linda was awesome! After seeing the videos and pictures she sent during our trip I was afraid they may not want to come home! It was obvious they were treated like royalty while they were there. I would highly recommend Linda to take care of your dog(s).

Thanks again Linda!!! We always appreciate you keeping our pup and sending us updates!!!
Linda was fantastic..........
we found her services as a last moment decision cause our friends let us down. However
with her professionalism we will be thinking of her first, she made diesel feel right at home and didn't hinder his energy and natural ability to get into mischief as all puppies try to get away with.
And we will be definitely using her again without hesitation

Linda was a true find! Nikko had a blast on his vacation. Linda sent me daily pictures and video to put my mind to ease. But most telling is how quickly Nikko made himself at home. He was exploring and playing before I could even say goodbye! Linda is a true animal lover and it shows in her care and dedication to Nikko.

Linda is a very kind and affectionate host. She is prompt, quick to respond via email, text messages etc. She was very caring and sent us regular picture and video message updates daily. Overall, we were very happy with Linda and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone without any reservations.

Linda was fantastic! Our dog Chip stayed with her while my wife and I got married in Las Vegas. It could not have worked out any better. When I dropped Chip off Linda took the time to show me where he would be staying and showed me her back yard. She let me stay while Chip was introduced to her dogs. Chip had a great time with Linda's dogs, and was spoiled. Linda updated us daily with videos and pictures of Chip in her lap watching tv and playing. She even trimmed his nails. We had a great experience and will not hesitate to use her again or recommend her to any friends. It was our first Dog Vacay reservation and the online process was smoothe and painless.

Linda was fantastic! We were lucky to find her last minute for the week we needed AND for two dogs. She sent daily video feeds and updates and both dogs appeared to be getting spoiled rotten!! I would definitely recommend her again and look forward to using her again in the future.

Our Casey had a great stay here! Linda was a wonderful host and took great care of Casey. Lots of playtime with other dogs. Linda shared pics and photos of Casey with us regularly while we were gone.

We were very pleased with the care that Linda gave our two cocker spaniels. She was loving and affectionate with them and spent time to really get to know them. She was very accommodating when we had to call at the last minute to extend their stay with her from 6 to 8 nights. And she gave us excellent advice about dog care and grooming. We highly recommend Linda's services.

Our dog, Mika, had a great time staying with Linda while we were gone on vacation! We are always worried about leaving our baby behind, but Linda was wonderful and put us right at ease! From the reservation to drop off to pick up it was a great experience. We even got pictures and videos of her playing (which we loved!) while we were gone. It was so nice knowing that Mika was having fun and being loved on while we were away. We'll definitely be back with Linda the next time we need a place for our pup!

LINDA DID AN AWSOME JOB. TOOK OUR DOG IN AND COVERTED HIM TO LIVING WITH THE OTHER DOGS. SHE SENT PICTURES FROM TIME TO TIME TO SHOW HOW THINGS WERE GOING. WOULD RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE.
As always, Linda was great with Tulip when keeping her for the night. Thank you so much!
Linda was great! Kept us updated with wonderful videos of all doggies playing ;), she is a wonderful lady, cares very much for dogs. Will definitely bring our dog to linda again. Thank you Linda!
Linda was great! She sent videos every day of Whiskey's shenanigans with the other dogs, and did as much as she could to be sure Whiskey felt as comfortable as possible while we were away. I couldn't recommend her enough.
This is by far the best boarding experience that I have had. Linda was excellent & even accomodated my variable travel plans, made sure my dog was healthy & happy, & emailed videos & pictures during my trip. Overall, it was a great experience & would highly recommend Linda to a friend!!

Linda was great - I would recommend her to anyone!
Our boys had the best time staying with Linda for the first time this past weekend. Linda was great about communicating and letting us know the boys were happy, playful and not missing mom and dad one bit! She sent us videos of them playing and when my husband went to pick them up, they acted like they were already at home. Nothing is better than peace of mind when you have to be away from your babies and I definitely get that when they stay with Linda. Linda is our go-to person when we need a home away from home for our babies.

This was my first time using DogVacay and I was lucky enough to find Linda. From the beginning Linda was kind enough to help me help me with the booking process, even giving me a coupon code for my first time using the service! I was able to bring the dogs up for a meet and greet with Linda and her furry friends as well. That really helped ease my mind as to how my babies would get along with her's. Overall I was very pleased with the whole experience and would definitely book Linda again in the future!

Linda did a great job easing my fears of leaving my dogs (for the first time) with a complete stranger. I was able to coordinate a meet and greet with her (and her resident dogs) which really alleviated any fears I had about my dogs getting along with hers. She slowly introduced them and made everyone feel comfortable. While they were staying with Linda, she sent me daily videos and little "check in's" so that I could see they were okay. I know I will definitely use Linda again! It was such a relief to know they were in good hands and I could enjoy my vacation.

Linda did an excellent job. Our dog, skittles had a leg problem arise while at Linda's and she took her to the vet and kept us apprised of her health the whole time we were gone. She sent videos and updates so we could see how our little guys were doing. Would definitely use Linda again:)

Linda was a great sitter for our Zoey. She was very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times, responded quickly to our calls, and took time to send videos of how Zoey was playing. Linda even arranged to set up a grooming appointment at our request ! We would recommend her home as a safe and comfortable place to board your pet.

She is wonderfull, the most better experience. Me encanto, Linda es maravillosa, adora a sus huespedes, me enviaba videos de mi perrito. Es una persona muy amable, la verdad que si es como dejar tu pequeño con la abuela!
I was concerned as it was our dog's first time alone with someone other than the family members. But Linda was very good with our dog sending us updated video clips everyday. We will definitely go back to her when we are out of town again.
This is our first experience leaving Riley with anyone outside family. He is our grand dog and we feel very responsible for his safety and happiness while we're keeping him. Besides, we love him!! From our first contact with Linda C (who bills herself as "just like Grandma"), through the Meet and Greet and until we picked Riley up after a 7 day cruise, it was like Linda really was family. She is excellent with the dogs and was reassuring to us. Riley was happy to return to her house when we dropped him off for his stay and was not at all traumatized by his stay away from us. He was only tired, like all kids when they've spent a week with Grandma! We will not hesitate to leave Riley again (in fact we've booked his second stay for later in the month) and highly recommend Linda as a surrogate Grandma when your baby can't go with you!

Linda did a great job with my pup. It was the first time I boarded her so I was a little nervous about how my dog would handle it. Linda did a great job of introducing her dogs to mine while I was there so I could see how they all interacted. Linda also sent me daily videos of my dog playing out in the yard. I would highly recommend Linda to other people and look forward to having her host my dog again

Linda was fantastic. She was able to accommodate my last minute needs, and sent me pictures every morning and evening of Mooch playing with his new friends. My dog definitely got spoiled - Linda cleverly added some chicken broth to his dog food to encourage him to eat (he often won't eat when I'm not around). Her broth trick worked, and Mooch was a happy pup.

Even upon first meeting Linda I felt at ease and confident in her ability to care for our Prince just as we would. We used to board Prince at a corporate place and never paid extra for the interactive play time among the dogs because Prince is a bit older and has never seemed too interested in hanging out with other animals. Linda knew I was a bit apprehensive about Prince's comfort with other dogs and immediately brought me comfort by introducing us to one dog at a time--slowly transitioning him from a quit introvert to a social "puppy."

I received text message updates from Linda multiple times daily with pictures, comments, and questions. I got to see Prince happily playing with others, "chilling" on Linda's lap, and behaving just like he was one of the club.

I will absolutely bring Prince back to see Linda because he was not only cared for and safe, happy, and healthy, but his vacation at the "Puppy Party" has changed him for the better. Linda definitely knows what she is doing, and her visitors' attitudes and overall dispositions reflect her great energy and spirit.

Thank you, Linda!

Linda was excellent!! I got great pictures of Mojo playing with the other dogs and updates each day. Linda catered to Mojo's needs. Mojo had such a great time she almost didn't recognize me when I picked her up!!
I know my 2 dogs are in good hands with Linda. Each time they stay with her they look good when I pick them up, she makes them feel at home. She is great about sending pictures and text messages during the course of their stay with her. It is nice to know and comforting that Linda is responsible and dependable. Wonderful sitter. Thanks Linda!!!!

Linda was great with our beagle mix Tulip! She updated us daily with a few pictures of Tulip out and about, playing with her dogs as well as a few others that she was keeping at the same time. Linda was very polite and went above and beyond to accommodate our dog to make her feel like she was at home. Tulip also had a great time playing with the other dogs. I would recommend Linda to anyone looking for someone to watch their dog; we will be using her again when we need her. THANKS AGAIN LINDA!!!

I left my baby girl, Millie, with Linda for a week. I was so nervous because I have never left my dogs with anyone except my mom before. Not to mention that Millie was my newest dog and I still didn't have a good feel for all of Millie's likes and dislikes. I knew she had been through a lot in life and did have some fears and anxieties. I took Millie to a meet and greet at Linda's the week before we left to make sure it was a good fit. Linda let us hang out with her and her pack for quite a while and was very sweet and patient with both me and Millie (as were her precious pups, Lucy, Snoopy, and Rosie). After that visit, I knew Linda and her home would be a great fit or Millie.

While we were gone Linda sent lots of pics and updates about Millie and it was obvious that Linda went out of her way to make Millie feel at home and it looked like Millie was having the time of her life with all of her new friends. What a relief!! Linda even took Millie to the vet for a minor tummy issue while we were gone.

I can't tell you what a relief it was to find someone like Linda to love my girl when I was gone! I am so glad we found her!

Linda is an awesome host and recommended. A+
Linda was a great host. I was pretty apprehensive about leaving our dog for over a week with a stranger, but after meeting Linda and her dogs, I knew Maggie was in good hands. I received multiple pictures everyday and saw how much fun Maggie was having. This is a great place to leave your dog!!!

Linda is everything I could have hoped for and some. I have had my dog for 3 years and have never kenneled him or left his side for longer than an evening. Knowing I was going to be gone for 12 days was extremely hard for me and I wanted to find someone or some place that put my mind at ease. I came across DogVacay on a google search, signed up and then searched for a while until I came across Linda. Not only did the reviews and background speak for itself but when we had the chance to do our meet and greet I knew she was the one. My dog is my world and I needed someone to realize that and she did. Linda not only gave me several updates during the day but also offered several pictures to ease my anxiety and give me the notion that he is in good hands. Even while I was in the Grand Canyon where I did not have reception for 8 days she still sent me stuff everyday so once I had reception again I would get it all. During the stay he made some incredible new doggy friends, ate lots of bacon, had doggy ice cream, was pampered in every way possible and most of all was in great hands with a kind hearted woman Linda who became his BFF. I can not express enough how much better Linda made me feel about leaving my buddy for the first time. She was the right choice, make it yours. Good day and thank you Linda for everything. :)

Linda kept Scooter, my Yorkie, while I was on vacation. She took charge the minute I drove into her driveway. I left knowing my little guy would be well-cared for. She kept me posted with texts and darling pictures of his antics. What a relief for me to leave him in a safe, loving home environment.. I will use her services and recommend her with no hesitation. (i had to return a day early because of sickness. Linda offered to drive Scooter to my house)! It was like having a doting parent to care of my Yorkie......

Linda is great. Buster was very happy with his temporary home. She takes care of everything. She even offered to drop him off at my place. I strongly recommend Linda.
Linda was very nice and accommodating. She sent me messages and pictures of my dog Calvin to let me know he was doing ok. I'm happy I found her on here and have a great place to leave my pet while I'm away. Thanks!!
Linda was great I give her 4 stars. She took great care of our Jack and sent us pictures of him. I would recommend her to anyone that needs someone to watch their dog.
Linda was great with Maggie & Grace. She kept us updated throughout their entire stay with quick notes and pictures.
It was our first time using DogVacay and Linda did an excellent job! She was very accommodating and took great care of our dog, Callie. She ensured that Callie had plenty of play time and attention. We would ask Linda to care for our dog again while we are out of town! Thanks!!

Linda is the best. We receive pictures of our dogs daily with updates. My dogs come home from their vacation relaxed and happy (and maybe a little spoiled). I would highly recommend Linda to anyone.
Linda was great! We had to book a last minute night (within hours) for our dog because someone had canceled on us the day of. I contacted DogVacay concierge and they called Linda to expedite the approval. Bo had a blast- he fell asleep on the car ride home and slept the entire day. She sent us pictures of him throughout his stay as well. She is right off of Hwy 45 which made such a fast pick up/drop off. We felt very comfortable leaving Bo with Linda and will do it again the next time we are in the Houston area.

Linda is very accommodating. We changed plans last minute to leave a day early, and she was able to take our dog Nina without a problem. Our dog is 50 lbs and very active, and Linda had no trouble taking her in and introducing Nina to her other pets. We loved the fact that Linda also works with animals as her job at a pet spa. Her home was very dog friendly and we came back to pick up a very happy Nina.

Linda handled our high energy pup so well! We got pictures every day of play time and even cuddle time. She was very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times. I was able to fully enjoy my vacation knowing my puppy was in such good hands. Even though she is an hour away, Linda will be our go-to dog sitter from now on. Our pup loved his time with her and I'm sure he can't wait to go back! Best dog sitting experience I've had thus far.

I'm pleased with the care and attention Linda had given to my 2 dogs. It was the first time I had to leave my dogs with a sitter and Linda was so understanding. While I was away she sent me photos and I was able to call her to see how everyone was doing and we also text messaged. She was very good with them.

Linda is super friendly and is accommodating to our puppy's needs. She sent us lots of pictures while we were away on vacation, which was awesome! We trust Linda's care and will definitely be returning customers!
