About Linda

37 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been living and working with dogs my entire life. My family rescued many dogs (and other animals) in need and I have kept that going ever since. I volunteer for rescue organizations such as SPCA and The Victoria Humane Society with fostering, adoptions, medical transport and post surgical care. No dog is too big or small and I treat each and every one as my own. I can also assist with those with certain behavioral issues and house training.

The small dogs enjoy pampering and walks suited to their energy level and age, the same with the big dogs, but we take our walks out into larger areas, like forest hikes, beaches and large dog parks.

Hello,
I'm am writing this letter of recommendation for Linda to explain why I think and pet Owens would be lucky to have her!
Linda is a highly motivated pet care provider I cannot recommend her enough! I have had dog-sitters who are apathetic and who let both discipline and routine slip, but Linda is organized, dedicated, and amazing at keeping any number of pets in good health and good spirits.
Linda is great with all animals, and has a special knack for getting animals to trust and obey her. When my pets stayed with her they seemed happier at the end of the day, and I never had to worry about their well-being or safety.
Linda is consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile. She is a woman of great character, efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent rapport with people of all ages. Besides being a joy to be with, Linda is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. She has always been successful on treating each person and pet with undivided attention and care. She makes any animal no matter the size or breed feel safe, secure and loved, making anyones time away stress free in knowing our beloved pets were in trusted hands.
Linda is also extraordinarily helpful in giving attention to details with updates and pictures! Because of previously pet sitters I have learned to recognize and respect the above mentioned attributes and highly recommend Linda for any pet sitting needs.

Linda responded EXTREMELY quickly to my questions, etc. This was the very first time we left our young puppy with someone and Linda was super welcoming, introduced our puppy to her house, gave us lots of updates, etc. She clearly has lots and lots of experience with all dogs. Our puppy has been napping all day since we picked her up and clearly had so much fun and lovin' in Linda's home and backyard.

Linda was great! She was in the area so picked up and dropped off at no additional cost. Our dog came home happy and we were sent its of great pictures. Thank You!
Our two dogs had a great stay with Linda! They were with her for a week and she took such great care of them. She treated them like they were her own with lots of love and care. We received regular updates and photographs. Will definitely be using Linda again!

Thanks again Linda for everything.

Excellent! So very accommodating for both myself and my dog Wesley ! I booked with very short notice and had my dog both picked up & dropped back off to me @ my convenience. I received frequent updates during his stay , and had a very happy dog came back home to me. I'm confident I found a long - term& reliable alternative and would definitely recommend this website to family and friends in the future. :)
