About Zachary & Lindsay

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and welcome! Owl House is a spacious apartment in Crown Heights that loves having canine visitors of all breeds and sizes. There's a shaded back yard with lots of room to play fetch and it's an easy walk to Prospect Park for longer jaunts. Zach and I are a brother/sister team with over four years of pro dogwalking and boarding experience, as well as being lifelong pet owners. Crown Heights Animal Hospital is just around the corner in case of emergencies, so rest assured that your BFF is only steps away from medical care. There is no resident Owl House dog at the moment, but please contact us before instant booking if your dog needs to be a solo Vacay-tioner (we host frequently!), if you have questions or to arrange a Meet and Greet. We can't wait to be the home away from home for your furry pal! For more pics from our adventures check out our Instagram: @owlhousepets

Lindsay and Zach are friendly and welcoming hosts! Even though they have years of experience dog sitting and dog walking, they currently don't have any dogs of their own...but that only means more attention for you dog! Their apartment includes a fenced backyard meaning lots of opportunity for off-leash outdoor time! They also live walking distance from the park.

Paired with their experience and their love for dogs, they are sure to provide a wonderful and stress-free dogvacay for you and your pup(s)!
Our dog seemed to really enjoy her week with Lindsay and Zachary. I received daily photos of our dog playing and snuggling with other Vacay-ers. She received lots of walks and lots of love while we were away. Thanks, Lindsay and Zachary!
Lindsay walked our dog Ruby several times while we were away overnight. She sent a bunch of pictures to show us that our pup was happy and being well taken care of, which was great! Lindsay even came over and gave Ruby an extra walk when our flight was delayed. Thanks Lindsay for giving us peace of mind and taking such good care of Ruby!
We've asked Zachary and Lindsay to take care of our pup for us a couple times now. Both times, they've been hugely accommodating and great to work with.
Simply amazing. My 80 pit bull loves them, its a great environment.
Lindsay walked my dog for a week while I was out of town and she was the best! She texted me pics every day. She's very warm and accommodating... I'll definitely be booking her again!! :)
Wrigley had a great time!
Absolutely could not recommend Lindsay and Zach more! This was our first DogVacay with a new puppy so we were a little nervous at first, but Lindsey and Zach made us so comfortable, and more importantly our dog LOVED them! We will 100% be booking with them again!
Lindsey and Zachary were very nice, very communicative and accommodating. They kept me up to date on how Bella was doing and gave her lots of love and walks. Thanks so much for everything.
They're great and George loved them!
Lindsay and Zach were very accommodating to us as our travel plans changed slightly. They sent us tons of pictures and it looked like our pup had a lot of park time! Will definitely use them again.
Zachary & Lindsay are great! Very kind, quick to respond, accommodating and flexible. They sent lots of photo updates too, which I appreciated. I would definitely recommend them and plan to use their services again in the future.
Had an amazing experience with Zachary and Lindsay on a last minute booking for my silky terrier, Sophie. Lindsay had her hands full hosting several other dogs as well, but sent regular updates including pictures of my pup, and me feel extremely comfortable with the fact that Sophie was away from home. What a wonderful vacay host!! I would highly recommend them for your dog sitting needs and look forward to boarding Sophie with them again. Thank you!!
We were absolutely thrilled with the job Lindsay and Zachary did watching our pit mix, Gronk, for the weekend. We received a ton of photo updates that showed her walking around the park, playing with the other dogs in their care, and laying on the floor exhausted from the previously mentioned activities. Their apartment is spacious and inviting for dogs, and they take maintaining a safe environment for all pups very seriously. I think Gronk wants to go back, which we would certainly let her do if we go out of town again.
This is our pup Messi's 3rd stay here, and counting. He loves them. Proximity to the park means lots of walks and outdoor adventures. They are really great about photo updates which lets us know he is having a good time and being well taken care of. Highly recommend.
Lindsay was a great host for our dog Lupin. She sent me regular pictures and responded right away anytime I texted her - very important qualities for an overprotective doggy mom like me. Lupin also got to play with two other dogs staying with them and came home very tired from all the playtime and nice walks! He also got to sleep wherever he wanted - a huge plus for me as he sleeps in our bed at home.
Zachary and Lindsay are amazing. They are truly caring and trustworthy people. Zach stayed at our apartment with Lucy and took great care of our pup (and home), which was so appreciated. We came home to a very happy pup who was calm and happy! They also sent us daily picture updates and were in touch at every point. I think we found our go-to Dogvacay sitters -- I highly recommend!
Zachary and Lindsay were the best. They sent tons of photos and took great care of the house and the pack. We will for sure use them again.
Lindsay was amazing!!! She responded quickly to my meet-n-greet. My dog Lola loved her from the moment she met her. Lola has fear aggression and lots of triggers when she walks, such as other dogs and skateboarders. Lindsay had lots of patience and was great with Lola. Lindsay also sent daily pictures of Lola on her walks, which I loved!!!! Thank you!!!!
Zachary and Lindsay were great! They took awesome care of our year old puppy and even administered her meds. They sent tons of pictures and updates which put us at ease. We came back to the apartment and it was just as clean as we left it. I'll definitely book with them again in the future.
Thank you Lindsay for a wonderful stay for Bailey!
Lindsay was awesome! I can't say enough how happy we were to have her take care of our English bulldog Zephyr. She took care of the house while we were gone and gave us constant updates on our pup. We enjoyed the pictures while we were away. We could tell that she loved him and so we are going to use her going forward
Zach & Lindsay are wonderful. I would absolutely book with them again. They were easy to coordinate with, very accommodating. Highly recommend.
I can't say enough great things about our vacay! Lindsay and Zachary made sure our dog was well cared for while also keeping us constantly updated with pictures and texts. I could tell that Huaso was happy and comfortable during his stay. We will absolutely be using their help again!
Perfect experience! Lindsey was very loving and sent plenty of pictures to set our minds at ease.
Zach and Lindsay were absolutely fantastic. I can't recommend them highly enough (though I realize this might make them unavailable the next time we need them!)

This was our first time using Dog Vacay, so Lindsay agreed to come to us to meet our recently adopted pup, Petey. She was extremely knowledgeable in the meet-and-greet, asking the right questions (medication, walks, interactions with other dogs), and we were really put at ease. They were also very comfortable watching a large 75 bully breed mix.

Though their place looks awesome (with a backyard!), we asked if they could stay at our place, to keep our pup calm. They went above and beyond with the house/pup sit, spending the entire weekend with him. We asked for as many updates as they liked, and we got so many great pictures!

We know who will be our top choice for our next vacation!
All we can say is that when we have to board our pet Kisses, we will not be looking around anymore as we will be using Zach and Lindsay again. Kisses is a very sweet and mild mannered dog who is a little nervous but from the day we sent Kisses over, she didn't seem distressed at all. We were updated daily with photos and sweet little notes about Kisses' day and activities. We have used other boarders before but never have we felt so assured about how our Kisses was doing. We can't thank you both enough! And you will be seeing us again for sure! xxx
Not only has Lindsay been extremely accommodating and professional, but she is a fabulous communicator and always sends pictures when she's walking my pup (a little thing that I think most owners, like myself, appreciate).
She responded to my request right away and took great care of Otis when I was in a pinch.
We will surely be using her and Zach's services for as long as they're available! :)
Lindsay was a great host. Our dog understandably acts a bit off after being left in the care of others, but after staying with Lindsay, she seemed just like the same carefree dog.
Lindsay and Zachary were great communicators and awesome with our puppy Belka. Their back yard meant that Belka could get her excercise and chill outside off leash safely and they gave her plenty of walks. She came home happy and tired. Would definitely have them dog-sit again.
Our dog had a great time here. Frequent updates. Easy communication. Will use again.
We love Lindsay and Zach! We've left our pup, Whiskey, with them a few times now and they are just the best. They're reliable, timely with responding, and totally get our crazy "Pet Parent" ways. We always feel safe leaving Whiskey with them and will definitely continue to use/recommend them.
Lindsay & Zachary are the best!!!
My mothers lovely two Beagles needed a warm and caring home for week. Lindsay & Zachary offered them exactly that by opening up their home and space and treating them like family.
The meet and greet was awesome!! The dogs fell in love with Lindsay, kisses going back and forth. They also kept us updated with happy pictures of them going on long walks. Tangy and Wendy were very happy with Lindsay and Zachary.
I recommend Lindsay & Zachary a thousand times over any kennel!!!
Zachary & Lindsay were AWESOME!!! We got frequent pictures of Wallace having a blast and they kept us updated as to how she was doing. The flight was delayed upon return and they were very understanding about an unfortunately later than expected pick up. It felt like they adopted Wallace as their own which was very comforting. I can't say enough good things about this experience. Thank you!
Zachary & Lindsay are exceptionally gentle and kind people. My little dog has an especial affinity for Zach. When I pick him up after a stay with them, he is completely calm and happy. I think he enjoys his time spent there.
Lindsay took care of our 9 month old labradoodle during the day for several days in a row. Lindsay was very responsive and very flexible with scheduling and timing. In addition, she took great care of our puppy! Sadie loved playing with the other dogs and got lots of exercise and play time. Thank you!
I honestly don't know what to say as I am personally super touched by Lindsay. She was able to help me out with a last minute reservation for my very sick old best friend. He is A LOT of work being diabetic along with cognitive dysfunction issues. But they managed him just fine. Her updates were awesome! I loved showing the people around me her updates. My dog is special to me and now so is Lindsay. You would not go wrong.
Lindsay was great! She was able to accommodate a last minute booking and our terrier pup came back healthy, happy and tired.
If I could give them 10 stars, on a 5 star rating I would! We boarded our 9 year old medium sized dog, Molly with them last minute and also 12:00am (my water broke ...blah blah blah), and were blessed to have found them! Lindsay was nice enough to meet us outside to introduce herself. Throughout Molly's stay they sent us pictures and gave us updates on her daily activities. We will be sure to use them again if ever we need someone to watch our dog. I highly recommend them for any services that they provide. Really easy going and great people!
Zachary and Lindsay were so attentive with our dog Ladybird - it is clear they take dog sitting seriously. We got multiple updates a day and she was exhausted when we picked her up. Would definitely have them watch Ladybird again!
Our boys LOVED their weekend with Zachary and Lindsay! With TONS of cuddles and park time, they were exhausted when they got home! We loved the fact that they were more than willing to take on our Golden Retriever and our English Mastiff, that's a lot of dog for most people. But by weekends end, when most would be begging us to pick them up, Lindsay sent us a picture of a cuddle party and told us to take our time getting back. AMAZING!! They made us feel at ease and they made our boys feel at home. We couldn't ask for better surrogate parents to our dogs!
Zachary and Lindsay were wonderful. We left them with our cat and dog for the weekend. The cat was sick so I was very nervous but they sent updates throughout and were lovely.
Zach and Lindsay were great!
Thanks to Zachary and Lindsay for taking such good care of Rolf this weekend and for all the great photos! Highly recommend!
Lindsay and Zach are the best! It was my first time leaving my 6 month old puppy and I missed him so much. They assured I had my daily updates and he was exhausted by the time I picked him up. A true vacay for a puppy :)
Zachary and Lindsay are great per hosts. My dog Diamond always enjoys staying with them when I am away. They watch over her just like I would. What I really like the most is that Diamond is rarely left alone while in their care as there are two of them available to watch her. I will continue to leave Diamond in there care when I am away.
Leroy had a great night with Lindsay and Zachary and came home totally wiped!!! It was clear they had done lots of fun playing and had lots of park time. Lindsay sent tons of pictures, which we absolutely loved! Could not be happier to have chosen them for our first time using DogVacay!
Zachary and Lindsay were awesome hosts. They were very accommodating and helped put our nervous minds at ease. They sent a ton of photos and messages so that we were in the know every day we were gone. I'm pretty sure our dog was a little bummed to have to leave. We will definitely be using them in the future!
Zachary and Lindsay were absolutely amazing! This was the first time we had left Penny with someone else overnight, so we were nervous, but they set up a time for us to meet beforehand and do all introductions. Zachary and Lindsay love dogs so much and clearly care so deeply about the wellbeing of the dogs they are caring for, and I immediately felt completely comfortable leaving Penny in their care. Throughout our trip we received numerous picture and message updates per day, and it made me so happy to see how happy and well cared for Penny was. When we went to pick her up, I could tell she didn't really want to leave! I would 100% leave Penny with Zachary and Lindsay again and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
My dog Trey had a wonderful time with Zach & Lindsay! They were very sweet and caring for Trey, who is an almost 10 year old St. Bernard, and when they noticed that he wasn't eating a lot of his food, they were active in contacting me to come up with a plan to help him eat. They suggested and then we agreed to try a rotation of cheese and peanut butter mixed in with his food, which helped him eat more over the week that they watched him. They even offered to cook up some chicken and rice to give to him if needed!! They also sent me daily pictures so that I could see Trey while I was away, which was a really nice touch. They are kind, friendly, and loving people who take their job very seriously and did a wonderful job caring for my dog. I highly recommend them!
Lindsay was so great! She sent us pictures and updates often, and treated our dog like her own. We will definitely be using Zachary and Lindsay again!
Awesome, per usual! Niles came back rested and happy from his weekend stay with Zachary & Lindsay M. He even made some new dog friends! Love this place and don't know what i would do without them.
Zachary and Lindsay are incredible! My dog Niles is a rescue dog mutt who tends to be skittish and his nerves get the better of him. We had an out of town emergency and they helped us out at the last minute which was so helpful. I was worried Niles might be difficult but within the first hour, Lindsay sent me a picture of him happy as a clam. By the second day, I received a picture of them cuddling up a storm.

Updates were frequent and I felt great about leaving Niles for a stay. I highly recommend them!!
Lindsay was a sweet and attentive to our pup's needs. He got to play all weekend with 2 other dogs that were being watched by them as well. They were responsible and they updated us every day we were away with a message and a pic. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great place to stay.
Zach and Lindsay were great!!I I received updates and pics all weekend long :) Louis came home happy and exhausted.
Zach and Lindsay were absolutely wonderful. We chose them to watch our dog because they instantly had a great rapport with her. They were very accommodating and flexible and took awesome care of our dog for a long day, full of walks and playtime and naps, just as if we had been there. It was stressful leaving our dog, but we couldn't have made a better choice!
