About Lynn

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
WELCOME TO BARKZ AND RECREATION!!
When the kids were growing up we had upwards of 4 dogs at a time and everyone of them thought they were the top dog. All well behaved and well loved, I used to breed rottweilers too, and now I am enjoying the life of a small breed owner.

I have adapted.

In the meantime, no matter what size your baby is, he will be loved and protected here.

Personalized snuggles and tug of war, squeaky toys and ball tossing, dog loving cats, cat loving dogs and a nice sized yard for play and a pretty nice neighborhood for the more serious walking connoisseurs.

I work from my home, so I can welcome your baby most anytime and have plenty of one on one time with him or her.

Having bred and raised dogs for many years, I am familiar with doggie First Aid and CPR, the administration of drugs and injectable meds as well.

I have a passion for older dogs too. My kids call me the Geriatric Doggy Queen. As our dog babies age, they may not play quite as much and require more personalized care, but it is during these latter years when the dog becomes our forever friend. I consider it an honor to tend to the needs of these family members, whether blind or deaf or needing special care and food preparation or just plain loving.

With that, I am looking forward to meeting with you and getting to know your family.

Needed a sitter last minute after a death in the family, and Lynn was available same day. She was quick to respond, sent wellness updates and photos via text while I was away, and truly and genuinely loves the animals she takes care of. She is a top-tier petsitter and I will be re-booking with her for a foreseeable future!

Awesome experience with Lynn. Very responsive and kept me informed each day on the dogs. My dogs disposition when I picked them up told me that they were well cared for and got plenty of love. Thanks, Lynn.
Lynn was awesome with Titus he enjoyed his time there. I had to have surgery and Lynn open her home without thinking twice. Well be taking Titus there again if I need her.
We feel great leaving our pups with Lynn!
Lynn was amazing. I received pictures of Cannoli playing with the other pups. Cannoli was warn out after a day of playing! She is very accommodating and responds so quickly. Will be using Lynn again in the future!
What an amazing and convenient experience! Lynn was very pleasant to talk with and took great care of Lambeau. She is very easy going and keeps a clean and organized operation. Lambeau came out happy and healthy. She even took pictures and sent them to us while we were away!

Absolutely perfect. Bailey the semi-wonder dog was relaxed and happy when I picked him up. Stress was major factor for choosing a home versus a traditional boarding facility. Would highly recommend Deborah Lynn for anyone with a family member in need of a vaycay

Thank you lynn! The pug enjoyed his stay! Thanks again will be a repeat customer!
Lynn was very patient and understanding with our little wild and loud Yorkie. When he first met Lynn, he wanted to devour her like all other strangers. Several days later when we came to pick him up its like they're best friends. The only concern we had was he
seemed to have lost some weight. We think its a combination of unfamiliar surroundings, presence of other dogs and more activity. But his poop was not runny, which was always a good sign. Lynn also looked after our 15yr old shi-tzu who didn't want to be touched by anything that moved. We knew he was going to be a challenge as well but Lynn was patient with him.

The dogs were happy and tired upon our return. Only issue I came across was I had said several times I'd be picking dogs up at a specific time, and then on that day was told that wouldn't work, so had to readjust our schedule. I wouldn't hesitate to use Lynn for boarding again.

Lynn is awesome with my pups. Ty
Lynn is the only person that my dog will go running to (other than me!). She perks up as soon as we drive into Lynn's neighborhood and, even with her separation anxiety, is super excited to go play at Lynn's house. Definitely recommend.
It went extremely well! All of my animals liked her immediately and I'm going to hire her again very soon!
Great experience. Lynn is so nice and our dogs seemed very happy and relaxed when I picked them up. Will definitely book again.
Lynn was great. She was very accommodating and easy to work with. Journey my frenchie had a great time and was worn out. It was a quiet ride back to Oklahoma.
The dogs seemed to be ok when we picked them up, but all 4 of them had diarrhea (other guests left same comment). No walk thru of the house and backyard is allowed by her. Had to use her as a last minute source.
Lynn was awesome. She is a very polite, patient person who knows a lot about dogs. My puppy is an Italian Mastiff and while he's only 4 months old, he's a big puppy, an Alpha by nature, and she was totally awesome in handling him. When I picked Onyx up (it was his first time ever at a doggy babysitter's house) he was totally fine & normal & cool. He clearly had a great time and didn't show any signs of trauma (my first time ever using a doggy babysitter as well so I was nervous as well) but it all worked out thanks to Lynn!

Willie Nelson had a great time with Lynn! He enjoyed all the yard exploring and attention. I will definitely use Lynn again to care for Willie:)
Super easy to work with and accommodating. Lynn has a great sense of humor and was very kind when our plans had to change a number of times. Our dogs were happy and seemed to have had a good time. We will use Lynn again.
Sadie was well taken care of and seemed to have fun with the other dogs.
Very happy with Lynn! Could tell our pup was loved while we were away!
Lynn was a wonderful host to Sebastian. Will definitely use her services again.
Lynn is a kind, warm and loving individual! Chewy came home TIRED and happy, which means he was definitely not bored :) Lynn is an awesome person and I will be a repeat customer.
Debbie Lynn was great with my two dogs. I knew they were in good hands while we traveled to Ohio and back. Thank you.
Lynn was great with our 2 guys! You can tell when someone truly loves animals and she certainly has that special connection. Very friendly, very accommodating, and all around a great DogVacay host. We are looking forward to the next time!
Ginger had a great time, thanks again!!
Lynn did a great job. Pups loved the experience.
Lynn was very lively and my dog was happy and well cared for
Lynn was terrific. I just moved to Jacksonville and needed a place for my Jack Russell to stay till I got into my place. She was flexible and allowed me to extend a couple of days as needed. He had a terrific time with his new friends and I am so happy to have found such a great place for him to stay.

Thanks again for looking after Finley. He seemed like he had a great time.
Lynn was plenty nice and accommodating of our short notice booking. She met us in the driveway. Today, we picked Max up earlier than we originally planned. Lynn, again met us outside. She reported Max had a great time playing with her dog and another person's pug. Unfortunately, Max got very sick on the way home vomiting about 6 times. When we got home, he immediately had loose mushy runny poops, not his usual formed ones. We are thinking he likely ate some of the other dogs' food, and it didn't agree with him. We hope that is all it is.

Lynn is a true dog lover! This was my 1st experience using Dogvacay and will definitely use it again. We enjoyed receiving pictures during our dogs stay as well!
Lynn was absolutely amazing! Eisenhower got to play the whole weekend with Zeke, Lynn's dog. He was almost sad to leave when I came to pick him up. I will definitely be looking to book her again for future stays.
Excellent care and service with my dogs. I got pics and lots of updates.
Lynn really came through for us. We needed to find someone in a hurry and she made it very convenient for us.
Milo had the stimulation of playing with other dogs and had humans to cuddle with.
The pictures and updates that Lynn sent really made us feel that Milo was in the best place while we were gone.
Thank you Lynn!

Lynne took very good care of Elway. He loved her yard and she really seemed to bond with him. She is a person who really likes dogs. We feel comfortable leaving him there. He was well cared for and she sent us updates and nice compliments about him.

Lynn was great and super accommodating so we could enjoy our trip to Universal Studios before we leave the mainland. I knew he was in great hands the whole time and never once worried about Wally. He came home happy and pooped! Wish we could take Lynn with us to Hawaii to watch Wally when we need a sitter!

Lynn was a gracious host to our Martin...she was very accommodating and helpful during our Florida vacay.
It seemed Stella enjoyed her time with Lynn very much. She loves to play outside and it appears she got what she wanted! This was great for us because Stella came home and slept right away.
Teague LOVED his time with Lynn! He was so happy when I picked him up. Lynn was also wonderful about sending me updates and pictures so I knew my little guy was being well taken care of and having a great time. Lynn is definitely a dog person :)
