About Linda

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have loved dogs all my life and presently have two English Springer Spaniels. I live in a house with a nice fenced-in backyard. And I'm about 5 minutes away from Wheaton Regional Park which has so many wonderful walking paths, and a dog park.

The dogs have unlimited access to my yard. If anyone stands at the door, I let them out ... they can come back in when they want to ... I DO keep an eye on them while in the yard.

I am newly retired, and, unless I'm out doing errands, I will be with the dogs 24/7. While I'm out during the day, the dogs have free run of the house and lots of beds and a couch to choose from to rest in. Or play - my house is extremely dog friendly. I would love to spend time with your dog(s) too.

Linda was able to take our pup in a pinch and was wonderful!
Linda, is a great host ! She loves dogs. My dog came home happy and healthy. Linda, posted Hachi's pictures and was very flexible with drop off and pick up. I would definitely use her again.
Linda is a great sitter and Sydney always comes home tired and ready for a nap, even if she had plenty of them at Linda's. All of the dogs she watches, as well as her dogs, always get along and they all have fun playing together.
Sydney always has a great time and Linda's. Her two dogs are always excited to see her and they all seem to have fun on the visits. Sydney always comes home tired and satisfied. Linda is our go to sitter.
Our dogs love staying with Linda, and she always sends us photos of them hanging out and enjoying themselves.
Linda was way beyond excellent in taking care of our little boy Bruno !Bruno felt so much home and would love Linda's care ! Linda always kept us updated on bruno's pictures and sent us emails !She is the most flexible when it comes to reseevations ,etc. A big thanks to Linda for making Bruno feel safe and secure !We are definitely coming back !!
Linda took such great care of Max!! I really appreciated her thoughtful questions to ensure she got to know him and his needs/preferences before his arrival. I also appreciated the text/photo updates. He came home super tired and happy!
Linda was excellent with Fritz for the 10 days he was there. She kept in contact and sent pictures.
Our very active dog Tallulah was well cared for by Linda. We hope to use her again in the future.
Ms. K is a very loving and caring dog care provider. I picked my dog up after 5 days and he was clean, happy, and quite content with his stay over. Ms. K kept me abreast with daily reports. She has a large fenced in back yard so her charges have a place to roam and explore at their leisure, which was quite important with my dog as he likes to patter about at his own nosey pace. I would highly recommend Ms. K to anyone.
Sydney had a great time and Lynda's. She was good and tired when we picked her up and made a new friend. Lynda is a great dog sitter and Sydney loves coming over to visit.
Linda was great! Our dog Gracie stayed with her for three nights. We'd definitely recommend Linda. Her dogs are super cute, by the way.
Linda loves dogs, has two of her own, and that shows. Ringo had a great time, he did not tell me, but I'm sure he did. We received photos every day of him playing in the backyard. He will be coming back to Linda very soon.
Sydney had a great time at Linda's. Linda was taking care of some other dogs that day and they all got along well together. Sydney must have had a great time since she took a long nap when she got home. We will definitely use her again. Thanks.
Zach had a great time with Linda. I will be using her again, for sure!
Linda was great! I highly recommend her.
Linda was very welcoming and happy to take our Blau into her home. We had a last minute change of plans and needed to find someone to watch Blau ASAP. She has an extremely dog friendly home and family. She provided us with pictures and updates of Blau's stay on a daily basis. Honestly Blau didn't seem to want to leave her home when it was time to pick him up, overall all I'd say it was a great experience.
Simon really enjoyed staying with Linda and her family. Would definitely book again. Highly recommend. Cathy H
Linda is a dog lover and gave great care to our dog!
Linda was so easy to work with. She was very flexible with drop- off and pick-up times, which made it less stressful when we were driving back from our trip. We felt very comfortable having our dog with her for the week, knowing she was well taken care of and happy.
The stay with Linda was a wonderful experience not only for our pup but for us as well. I know that our fur baby was well taken care of and probably got fussed over more than when at home with us. It's obvious that Linda is a dog lover and we look forward to booking a future stay with her.
Wonderful Host!! The pictures say it all that my dog had a super awesome time!!
Lots of other dogs to play with and Linda was very nice - sent several pictures and updates.
Linda was excellent to work with. She was easy to reach before our trip, ensuring a smooth drop off and stayed in communication while we were gone including sending great pictures of the boys having fun. They came back with more energy than when we left them and were hesitant to leave her house. She clearly took great care of them and we are looking forward to leaving them with her again.
Linda is a real dog lover and I felt very safe leaving my pup. She administered pills and her resident dogs are very sweet. I will use again.
Linda was great! My shy dog felt right at home and loved her visit!
My fur baby, Seymoure, was loved and treated as a part of Linda's fur baby family. While
I was away for seven days, I Did not worry about my little guy because I knew he was in the greatest of hands with Linda. Thank you, Linda, for this wonderful experience!
