About Linda

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs and would love to be able to lavish attention on yours while you are away. I will be available 24/7 when your furry companion is with me. They will be treated like my own. I currently have no pets as I have lost my companion of over 13 years. I will only accept one at a time as my home is not large and I do not wish to divide my attention. I also have completed courses in Animal Psychology and Animal First Aid and CPR. I also have a good-sized back yard that is completely enclosed for outside time.

Linda is the BEST! Our dog was in great hands -- we are so grateful for her service! Thank you for everything!
So thankful for the hospitality for our pup. This made our vacation enjoyable, knowing she was in such good hands. I think our dog missed her when she came home :)
Very professional job. Abby seemed to have had a good time. Thanks for all the updates & pictures.
Linda is awesome. She really loves dogs, not just trying to make money. Daily text updates with pictures was great! I will definitely use Linda's services again!
My sweet 9 1/2 year old yorkie stayed with Linda while we were out of town for the weekend and boy did he get so much love! Linda is a great dog host and she is very thorough, which gives you the peace of mind that your baby is well taken care of. She is also great at sending updates and pictures. I love that she only takes care of 1 dog at a time, it was perfect for my Jackson who can be nervous around other dogs. We will definitely use Linda again!
Linda is a very dog friendly person. She has a great way with dogs. Our 8 month old Lab was very skittish when we got there but Linda got her comfortable within minutes!!! I very highly recommend Linda!!! Will be repeat customer!!!
Linda was great. She worked with us on our drop off time and she sent me a lot of pictures of Tyson while we were on vacation
We had a very good experience with Linda as our little dog's very first stay with anyone. I highly recommend the "meet and greet" prior to the stay to determine if it is a good fit. It was. Linda is very professional and wanted to know details concerning our dog's needs and routine. We were comforted by the photos she sent us. We are so happy to find Linda and hope to Vacay with her again.
Ms. Linda was a WONDERFUL host. I didn't think Murray wanted to come home! She sent daily pictures and would text to update me on Murray and any questions she had. She made sure to make him feel right at home! I would definitely use her again!
We feel very confidant in leaving our 10 yr old Weimaraner with Linda. Our dog is afraid of other dogs and also has some issues with separation anxiety. Linda keeps only one dog at a time and didn't schedule any errands during the two days she kept her. We definitely hope to use her again. Thanks, Linda!
Sheldon had an excellent stay at Linda's! He came home happy and healthy.
I had a bad experience leaving him at a kennel last year when I was gone for my annual vacation. He came back sick from the stress of staying at a kennel and sleeping in a pen and we ended up at the vet office. At Linda's he was able to sleep in her bed just like he's used to doing at home with me.
She even bakes her own treats for her furry guests.
I will use Linda again for any travel I do and can't bring Sheldon with me. She is a life saver!
We have been using Linda for over a year as our pet sitter. She has been wonderful and a blessing as the normal pet boarding did not work for us. We can go on vacation and not have to worry about Cotton as long as he is with her. She is very attentive to his needs and always keep us posted with text and pictures. And our dog, Cotton, just loves her!
this was my first time leaving Eva with Linda. I had no doubts about my Eva being in the best hands possible of anyone I could have left her with. She is kind, considerate and loving of my dog. I am leaving Eva with Linda again at the first of June and have absolutely no concerns about doing it. She takes care of my dog as well or better than I would and shows concern for her well being. I can't say enough about this experience. No dog owner should be afraid to leave their pet with her. She is that good with them. I hope she gets all the business she wants but I hope I can still get Eva in with her when I need to. I won't do anything else in the future. Eva will never see the inside of a kennel again thanks to Linda.
I am so glad I found Linda! She watched our little dog for 2 nights while we vacationed out of town. Her house is very clean and she was very sweet with our dog. I love the fact that she watches only one dog at a time, so our dog got all her attention! Linda sent me a couple pics by text, which I appreciated. When picking our dog up, it was clear our dog had become very comfortable and had made herself at home. Our dog was very happy to stay at Linda's house and we will definitely be repeat customers!
Linda is a very kind, caring person and pet sitter. She was very focused on doing exactly as we wished with our dog Lola, a 7 year old Maltese. She asked detailed questions and was very prepared to care for Lola. She is very respectful of the dog's (and owners') requests. She has a very large safe, fenced yard and a clean cozy home. She was absolutely wonderful, she kept us updated and was promptly responsive to emails, texts and calls. She is awesome! A real pro! I highly recommend her!
Linda took very good care of our dog. Our dog was very happy in her home.
Loved, loved, loved Linda! We have had to board Stella before in kennels. I am just amazed at the difference in her when we picked her up from Linda. She was not stressed. It was as though she had been at home with us. We received pictures every day, which helped with my anxiety She even gave us a framed picture of Stella when we picked her up! Awesome! Definitely will will use her again!
We had a WONDERFUL experience! Linda was great for our dog, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. She is very dedicated to the care of the dogs, and sends regular pictures and updates while you are away.
This was the first time that our puppy toy poodle has been away from us for a whole week. Linda was great and our baby had a great time. Linda is a real dog lover and very caring. We will definitely use her again.
Linda D. is the best ever! She is very sweet and understanding and was absolutely stellar with our pup! She even took pictures of our Aela and gave us one with a magnet to put on our refrigerator. I would highly recommend her without hesitation. Definitely above and beyond what we thought was possible.
Linda was wonderful! My pup was well cared for and I know I can enjoy my vacation without worrying about his welfare. He loved the backyard since I don't have one. It was a vacation for him as well.
great experience!!
Pearl is a little high strung and suffers from anxiety when I leave her, she is very much attached to me. Linda handle Pearl great and I plan to reach out in the future.
Linda is the sweetest lady ever! She took Great care of my dogs and they absolutely love her. It rained the whole duration of their stay with her and with them both being puppies (hyper) it was a bit more than what she can handle. We will definitely use her to watch either of our dogs separately. She was good to them and even made them homemade treats!
Linda is so good to Lola. Lola comes home as happy as she was when I dropped her off.
Linda was wonderful. She is very loving and patient. We have a very anxious dog with some separation anxiety issues. Linda took care of her like she was her own dog. Keeping only one dog at a time was important to us. I would definitely use Linda again, if she could stand another week with Mattie :) Your dog will be loved and cared for if you use Linda.
Lola can't wait to go back!
Linda is a very nice lady who obviously loves dogs, and is very conscientious in her care of each of her DogVacay charges. She gives them her full attention and goes out of her way to make sure they feel at home during their stay - even making homemade treats for them! She has a nice fenced-in back yard with lots of running and playing room, and I feel sure she gives out lots of pats and cuddles during their stay. We picked up a happy dog, and I would not hesitate to again ask Linda to keep our furry baby!
Linda is a really lovely person - very caring and making sure that our dog really felt like at home.
Ranger loved being at Linda's house while we were on vacation. We received a couple of "proof of life" pictures showing Ranger happy and playing. He seemed to feel like he was right at home. We will definitely use her again in the future.
Lucy was well taken care of. Happy dog equals happy mom
My little dog was upset that I left him but Linda was so patient and kind. He eventually stopped pouting and did just fine. Linda certainly has the grandma's touch! She made me the nicest fridge magnet of my little guy - I love it!
If we would give 5 or even 6 stars for Linda D, we would! She was absolutely wonderful! You can tell right away how loving and caring she is with dogs. We were very relaxed, knowing Cubby was in such wonderful hands with Linda. She sent us texts and pictures of him to let us know he was doing well. She has a large, fenced-in backyard that he really enjoyed. And the fact that she only takes in one dog at a time ensures her full attention. We will be back!
Always fun for Bailey to spend time with Linda! She is awesome and shows exceptional care for our little fur baby! Already have my next 2 visits booked!
Cotton always enjoys his stay with Linda. Especially being outside with her in her backyard. Linda is a wonderful pet sitter and the only person we care to leave our pet with at this point. We will definitely book with her again.
We left our little 2 year old Yorkie named Lu Lu with Linda D while we were gone for 8 days. She took such good care of Lu Lu and kept us updated on Lu Lu via text(s) with pics and a phone call or two. We really appreciated her doing that. Lu Lu came home happy and in great shape. She seemed to really like Linda's back yard and it was a very secure and safe area for her to play. Plus Linda always keeps an eye on her to make sure she is always OK and safe. Linda is #1 and we will use her again. She's the BEST !!!
Ron and Tana
Linda was excellent with Stewie! She is very knowledgeable and caring. Stewie needs some special care because he's diabetic and she has alleviated all my fears at the meet and greet. She also gave me a picture of Stewie during his stay with her as a keepsake, which is now up on my fridge. I would not hesitate to call her again if I need a sitter for my baby!
Bailey loved his visit with Linda! She does a super job and gave him full attention....he was quite spoiled! We received regular updates via text with pictures too. Bailey was right at home and we didn't have to worry at all! We would highly recommend Linda and will be back! In fact our next visit is already lined up!
This is the second time we have used Linda to keep our dog, Cotton. We are completely happy with the attention and care she gives him. This is so much better than boarding him in a kennel. We definitely recommend Linda and plan to use her again in the very near future.
This was our first experience with Linda, and it was fantastic. She was great with Kyla and I even got a few pics of her while I was away. We will be back for sure. Thanks!
She was terrific, very nice to me and my dog. I will use her again!
I was very comfortable leaving my dog with Linda. She s confident, kind and mature. She took care of him conscientiously and he was obviously happy to be there. It is a relief to have an alternative to a kennel.
Linda was Great !!! I felt so relaxed leaving Ms. Lucy at Linda's home
We are very pleased with our experience in using Linda as our dog sitter. She has a nice backyard for him to play in and she kept a good watch on him while he was outdoors. She gave him a lot of attention and took great care of him. We look forward to using Linda again as our dog sitter.
Eddie my little dog loves to go to Linda's home. His little tail starts to wag,when we pull into her drive way. Linda's care makes my vacation carefree to think he is not in a small cage in a kennel.
