About Linda

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your smaller dog will love staying on my completely fenced, suburban farm where he or she will have plenty of secure space to romp outside and lounge on the sunny deck or relax on a comfy sofa in my air-conditioned home. I am home all day, so your dog will have undivided attention. Your senior dog will enjoy doddering about the farm, sniffing and exploring, greeting the chickens and goats at the fence and sleeping on the deck. If your dog is able, we take several walks through the wooded trails in the neighborhood. I care for just a few dogs at a time, so I can give them the greatest care and attention.
I am not a kennel and offer a home environment with carpeting and furniture. To be a good fit to stay in my home your dog must

- be solidly housetrained
- not have destructive chewing habits
- have no marking behavior or history
- have no submissive or excitement urination issues
- get along with cats
- get along with other dogs
- be on a flea-prevention program

I've had a dog-companion and have done pet care for others most of my life. I've cared for senior and high-needs dogs and will provide patient and gentle care for your pet in a quiet, low-key environment. I'm comfortable administering meds, eye-drops, and doing pet massage.

A note about stays that extend beyond 24 hours and late or early pick up: Stays that extend beyond 24 hours will be assessed an additional fee. If you need to drop off before 7:00 AM, you will need to book for the previous night. If you need to pick up after 9:00 PM, you will need to book an additional day.

If you prefer in-home visits or dog-walking services, I offer these services as well for small and large dogs in the Redmond/Union Hill area. I've had a dog-companion and have done pet care for others most of my life. I worked as a professional dog-walker in England and loved spending time with some great dogs. I volunteered at a wildlife center in Utah and was assigned to exercise the foxes. If you can "walk" a fox, you can walk anything! I will walk your dog, feed, administer meds, or provide whatever care your dog needs. I've had snakes, cats, chickens, goats, rabbits, rodents, fish, frogs, pretty much everything and will be happy to provide care for these pets as well. I currently live with a bi-polar rescue Pomeranian, two spoiled cats, a flock of mostly retired hens, a pair of curious goats, and dote on all of them!

Linda is the best! My super shy dog (that loves other dogs, but not people) will actually snuggle up with her - which is HUGE! I also love the regular updates that I get.
Linda is the best dog sitter we could have hoped for. We would love for her to take care of our dogs again.
This is the second time we hired Linda to watch our Lhasa apso. She is a great pet sitter and communicator. Her home is abit of a drive but It well worth it as she has a large private lot and the interior is impeccably maintained. She regularly sends updates and photos of our dog to let us know how he is doing. She is a quick communicator and overall nice person. And she limits the number and size of dogs, which is critical to us. I highly recommend!
