About Lynell

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are long-time super-mega dog lovers and we have been hosting dogs in our home for several years now. Fun and safety are our top priorities!. We heavily screen all visiting dogs for aggression so that we can best ensure a happy and safe environment for all dogs. We have never had an incident of aggression and have never even had to take a visiting dog off site. Our home is located at the end of a "dead end" road with very little traffic and our yard is fully fenced. We have four sweet and friendly dogs of our own and we live on a half-acre mini-farm with our dogs, chickens, ducks, and goats. The dogs have access to all areas of the property except for the uber-secure farm animal yards (we've never had a dog versus chicken incident or anything like that).
Our standing joke at home is that we (myself and my husband) live in an enormous dog house; also known as our home. All of our house is dog friendly in that they are allowed on couches, chairs, beds and wherever else they want to lounge -- including our onsite cabin!
We are clean and tidy, yet we tolerate "accidents" and minor damage because we know that everything can be cleaned and repaired.
When we host your dog, your dog is treated as one of our own! He or she can have full reign of the house and property to run free and hang out with their new buddies!
At night time: our dogs sleep in our bed with us. Yours is welcome to do so as well, if they are able to relax and rest. If not, we will either let the dog choose where they would like to sleep or we will follow your preferences and requests.
At least one of us is at home approximately 20 hours each day, but can be at home 24 hours each day if needed. We own our own small business so we can be flexible with our work schedules. We don't travel much because of our own animals, so we are pretty much always available. Please note, however; that we cannot accommodate pickups or dropoffs on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day.
Puppies under the age of 12 months old will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Approval will be contingent upon the evaluation.
Puppies aged 12-24 months will generally be accepted.
Leave your hairy baby with us where they can roam on the range!

Loved having my dogs so well taken care of. Lynell was wonderful with them. My two small dogs have been stay-at-home, spoiled dogs and not socialized. Although I was concerned, I need not have worried. Lynell took them in one at a time with her dogs and they all got along well. She has a wonderful big fenced yard and my dogs loved it. (I live in a condo so it was such a bonus for them) I took them for one overnight trial which gave me piece of mind. They did great. Just picked them up from a 4 day stay. I would absolutely recommend her! I will be calling on her next time I go out of town.

Lynell was great. Our 2 little dogs immediately felt at home. Lynell sent us some pictures while we were away. We will definitely use her services again. I highly recommend her.
When I went to pick my pets up on Sunday, they were glad to see me, but I could really tell that they had a good time at Lynell's. She was holding Riley, who is my shy one, and it was obvious he was happy to be in her arms. They had a great time and I know I will be taking them back!

My little dog had the time of his life. He was well cared for and happy. Lynell sent me pictures and was quick to respond to my texts while I was on vacation. It was a great socialization time also. Lynell likes to keep dogs of a similar size and age so they all play together. There is room to run and be one of the pack. Lynell seemed very responsible and organized in their care, even when multiple dogs were present. I felt very comfortable leaving my pet with Lynell.

Lynell did a great job with our three rambunctious mini-aussies. One pup takes medication and he received all necessary meds. The dogs were so happy and relaxed when we arrived, which is always our clue that they were in a good place.

She is extremely responsive to any questions or inquiries and I felt like I was very connected during our absence.

Lynell is dependable, reliable, diligent and clearly loves the dogs she cares for. We can't wait to return for a second visit.

This was the first time I had to leave my dog overnight, so I was concerned about it of course. Lynell did a great job. My dog made some new friends. She sent pictures and updates. I felt comfortable about it. I will be using her again!
Little Bear enjoyed her stay! Thanks Lynell :-)
I've never left Sadie with a dog-sitter before and this first experience was great! She enjoyed the freedom of the fenced yard and having other dog friends. She was a happy girl and got a lot of love and attention from Lynell and her family. I will definitely have Sadie stay here again!

Our dog had a great time - I know because she did not want to leave! She did not seem nervous at all when we dropped her off and she loved sniffing around the large yard. We will definitely book with Lynell in the future!
Lynell really loves taking care of her dogs I was really impressed. I will definitely use her services again
Lynell had my Puggle for almost a week. I loved that she had tons of space for my dog and other dogs to roam. Lola had tons of new friends she met during her stay. I decided to go with Lynell because of the great reviews, her location (Puyallup) and the space of her yard (my dog loves to run). Her place was perfect. She was quick to respond to my emails. I have no doubt Lola had a great time with her.

Lynell was great! She took good care of our Jake and even sent pictures of him while we were away. Jake had fun and made new friends!
Lynell was great sending pics during our dogs stay. They were comfortable and had a ton of fun running around the property. Thanks for a great stay!
Chloe loves hanging out at the farm with lynell's crew. Will definitely head back whenever she is available.
We left our two dogs with Lynell and had a great experience. She obviously loves taking care of dogs and quickly earned their trust--and ours! We will use her again.
We were very pleased with our dogs' stay with Lynell. They seemed relaxed and happy when we came to pick them up. We will surely use her again when we have to travel.
Lynell was so good with my little Barbie. This is the first time I've ever had anyone besides family watch her so I was extremely nervous. After the meet and greet I felt so comfortable and confident that she would be in great hands. She sent me updates with pictures while I was away. When I picked my dog back up she was so excited to see me! Also extremely worn out from all the play time she got. I highly recommend Lynell!!

Super responsive and such a great place to leave Chloe for a night or even a few nights! Her pups and the rest of the crew were all super sweet and got along really well. Perfect dog pack. Already have my repeat visit planned!
