About Linda

I Love Dogs, my Husband loves Dogs! We can't imagine life without a dog. We are retired in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. We would welcome your dog into our home and will shower him with the attention craved while you are away. I do insist that your pet play well with others and be housebroken. I am sorry but I can not accommodate puppies. We know how difficult it is to leave "The Kids" in a boarding facility. We have been there! Then it's hard to travel with them as not all hotels will accept pets. Do you REALLY want to walk your loved one in an area of the hotel grounds full of other dogs' waste? Leave your pet with us and go site seeing worry free. We will make sure your baby is fed correctly and given attention. Walks? Absolutely! We will text you with photos as the day progresses just to reassure you of your pet's care. Our home is a 3 bedroom 2 bath and we have our very own special baby-a 8 year old terrier mix. She was a stray we rescued off the streets in San Antonio. We also have a standard poodle who is now two years old and full of playful energy. EVERY HOME NEEDS A DOG AND EVERY DOG NEEDS A HOME!!

Our doggy girls stayed with Linda and Gary while we were visiting some friends in the Kerrville area. We drove in from Oklahoma with our doggy girls and had them with us while in Fredericksburg at a dog friendly B&B but needed lodging for them while we were overnighting at our friends new home that had a cat in residence. Linda and Gary were the perfect answer! Linda took loving care of our older, fragile Labradoodle and our 5 year old Lab. Linda texted me pictures to show how they were getting along, much appreciated! I highly recommend Linda for your fur babies!!

Thank you Linda!
An awesome experience. My dogs enjoyed Linda. One even wanted to be in her lap. Her husband was very helpful and attentive with the dogs. Nice home and charming people. I was about 20 min late one morning and all flowed great. Just called and we communicated and came later because of
Rain and lightning storm . Thanx for thinking of all the details of their care.
Our 12 year old Lab, Ginger, had an excellent two days of care with Linda.

We started with a meet-and-greet by the end of which Ginger was getting quite comfortable. On the first day we took her into the house and she was clearly OK with being left. On the second day Linda met us in the driveway; Ginger couldn't wait to be taken in the house!

Ginger had a good Vacay and so did we. Thank you Linda!
Great people, and great location for my dogs. We'll be back!
Linda was great! She kept my dog, Jessie, while I was vacationing in her area during the week after Christmas. She was very sweet and welcoming to both Jessie and me. She even indicated it would be OK for me to drop in to visit or take Jessie on outings during the week. Although, it wasn't necessary as our vacation plans stayed too busy to take advantage of that.

She gave Jessie extra loving during a rough first night, and made sure she felt reassured with plenty of cuddle time the next day. From the looks of the photos Linda provided, Jessie settled in comfortably for the rest of the trip.

Linda's home was very warm and inviting and in a safe location. I will definitely book with her the next time I visit the Kerrville area.
Linda was awesome. So was so professional and kind to take my border collie in on short notice. My puppy is a 14 week old high energy sweetheart, and her patience with the pup was truly appreciated. I highly recommend and would not hesitate to use Linda again in the future. Thank you Linda!
Another great experience for Murdoch. He remembers Linda from visit to visit and is eager to jump into the car when I tell him it is time for his vacation.
Best solution ever for "what to do with my dog." Linda made all my concerns as a first-time user of Dog Vacay disappear the moment I met her. She took superb care of my furry family member and I can recommend her without reservation. My Sadie loved playing with her two puppies and felt right at home. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is Murdoch's home away from home! I no longer worry about him when I am away, knowing he will be cuddled and loved in my absence. Linda and her husband are wonderful pet parents and treat Murdoch as their own. I can recommend Linda unconditionally.
My two senior dogs needed some extra care and Linda and her husband certainly delivered! Their home is spotless and well-suited for lounging on the back deck. It was easy to tell that my dogs were loved and well-cared for, and Linda was happy to administer many pills. I would certainly call them up next time I am traveling.
Our dog Rusty had a vacation of his own when we left him with Linda while we traveled out of the country. He was well taken care of and had a great time with her! Linda kept in communication with us as to how he was doing, and we knew he was in good hands. We have found our pet sitter in Linda for all future vacations!!!
My dogs felt completely comfortable staying in lindas home within an hour i received a text picture of both of them snuggling on her husband lap watching TV. I could not recommend anyone more highly. I picked up two happy and content dogs.
I couldn't find a better place for Murdoch! Linda is wonderful with him, as is her husband. Murdoch rushes out of the car to say "hello," eats well while visiting, and makes himself quite at home. I am a fussy Pet Mommy and know that I needn't have a worry in the world when Murdoch is on vacation with Linda.
This was Mattie's first stay with Linda, but my other dog Bella has stayed with her before and the love and care Mattie got was just what I expected from Linda....highly recommend.
This is the second time Bella has stayed with Linda. I don't have to worry whether she's being taken care of and loved while I'm gone! Linda is wonderful with dogs!
What a wonderful experience for Murdoch and for me! Murdoch tripped happily into the room when I arrived after his visit, obviously relaxed and content. I am a protective pet mommy and was thrilled that Linda kept in touch, was reassuring, and sent photos of my boy. I definitely will request Linda for Murdoch's vacation when I travel this way again.
Mrs. Linda deserves the five stars. She is very warm, friendly and it’s obvious she cares deeply for dogs. Her two pups (which are super sweet) and mine hit it off from the beginning and I could tell they were playing his entire stay. She was also very understanding of my dog Draven’s personal needs and quirks. He's very sensitive to how he's treated (got very depressed the one time I boarded him at my vet's clinic), so I can tell immediately if he hasn't been happy staying somewhere, but it was evident he was perfectly taken care of and had a great time. I’ll definitely leave Draven with her again.
My baby girl Bella had a wonderful time staying with Linda & her puppies. She is wore out from playing so much. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my little one. Hopefully we will get to see you again soon.
Second stay for our chihuahua. Due to weather delayed flight we were late arriving but Linda graciously allowed us to pick up Lucy even though it was very late at night. Appreciated that.
Linda A was wonderful with Bella. I think Bella wanted to stay longer! It was great getting texts and pictures from her. It's the first time I've every left Bella anywhere and Linda made me feel like Bella was in great hands and having as much fun on her "vacation" as I was on mine. I will definitely take Bella back there next time I travel.
Linda and her husband are great with our boxer! My husband and I can leave home with peace of mind that she will be ok. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a place for their dog to board.
We did not visit Linda's home until the morning we were leaving & were a bit apprehensive about leaving our 4 lb. chihuahua, Lucy, with her. Five minutes after meeting Linda & her husband we knew we had made a great choice. Nice warm home and dog lovers to take care of Lucy - so much better than cold cage or stall at other boarding facilities. We would not hesitate to recommend Linda and will not hesitate to leave Lucy again when necessary.
Alice was accepted into Linda's family as if she was one of her own. Very pawsitive experience. Alice will definitely go for a vacay with Linda again!
Linda was great with Yeager. Yeager never seems stressed or anxious like she does when she walks into a kennel facility. I always feel much better about leaving her. I know she is in caring hands!
Linda was GREAT! I highly recommend her! I felt completely comfortable leaving her to take care of our 3 dogs! She kept me updated the entire time which helped being away! We thank her so much for doing such a great job!
A+ care...could not ask for a better place to take my dogs. Beautiful home, neighborhood, and great petsitter. Highly recommend.
