About Chad and Lynn

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I have welcomed dogs into our home since we started with a Pekingese rescue fourteen years ago. We have experience with dogs of different temperaments and breeds, and we have four of our own right now (along with a cat). Our home has a back yard with a 6-foot fence and is large enough for your pup to run laps and enjoy unlimited playtime outside.

If you walk your pup regularly, we can walk them once a day in a quiet neighborhood. We can provide supervision 24 hours a day and transportation is available. Sometimes a dog might take longer to adjust to the new environment so we can provide a separate room in our home to give your pup a quiet, comfortable place to relax when they need it.

We will treat your pup like a member of our family in our pet-friendly, non-smoking home. Our 2 teenagers and our 9-year old love animals as much as we do.

Please note: At this time we are not taking dogs that are not current on their vaccinations or that are UNDER ONE YEAR OLD. In addition, we require that all visiting dogs be on a monthly flea treatment program. These policies protect your dog, our dogs, and other guests' dogs. Thank you!

Our 8 year old Boston Terrier who never stayed with anyone before needed a place to stay for a week. Needless to say ... we were a little concerned. Our minds were put at ease during the meet and greet. It was obvious this family loves animals. The daily honest updates and pictures were greatly appreciated. Chad helped me out to the car when I picked up my dog. Brutus was in the car ... but looking to Chad for one more head pat from his buddy. Wow!

Our dog has a wonderful stay with Chad and Lynn! They sent pics and updates throughout the weekend and our pup seemed very happy when we picked him up. Big fenced backyard for dogs to run. Will definitely book with them again! Thanks guys!! :)
Chad & Lynn took wonderful care of our pup while we were on vacation! They interacted so well with Cooper, our 6 year old Shih Tzu, during our meet and greet that I had no doubts, and the daily text updates on how he was doing really helped our peace of mind. It was good for him to have other dogs to interact with, although he's very much a people dog. Cooper's behavior since we picked him up has been perfectly normal not clingy so I know he was not anxious. He will definitely visit Chad & Lynn again!

After meeting Chad and Lynne, I was confident they would care for our dog just like he was their own. So we were able to enjoy a worry-free vacation with updates and photos of our dog having a blast in their wonderful home. I think he actually had a better time with them than with us! Our special-needs dog can be a handful sometimes, but Chad and Lynne didn't hesitate to take him on, and they were great with him. I highly recommend them and know we'll be calling on them again in the future!

Both Chad and Lynn are so nice, and really show a love for dogs. They are very accommodating, and easy to communicate with. Our dog had a great time! Very, very pleased!!!
We have an English bulldog who is very god natured but used to being the one and only dog in the pack. We could not have been more pleased with how he behaved under Chad and Lynn's able care. They introduced Tuffy one by one with their dogs and our week away was stress free knowing Tuffy was in such good hands. We plan to use Chad and Lynn every year while we are on vacation to care for our beloved pet. We highly recommend them to any caring pet owner.

Chad and Lynn are very friendly and took care of our dog Macy for 3 nights. It took Macy a little time to settle in, but once she did, she was right at home. We received updates daily and a few pictures as well. Thanks Chad, Lynn, and the rest of the family.

Chad and Lynn took wonderful care of our two Great Dane/Mastiffs while we were on vacation in Hershey. They even provided photo updates during our trip so we could see how well the dogs settled in. This is such a nice family who will take wonderful care of your dogs.

First time using DogVacay and couldn't be happier. Chad and Lynn were so nice and accommodating with times for dropping off and picking up. Will definetly be using them again the the future!
My reservation with Chad and Lynn was my first time using DogVacay. I was initially a bit apprehensive because I had previously only used kennels, but any reservations I had were quickly allayed when I met Chad and realized how seriously he takes this responsibility. They have everything down to a science, including taking the time to bring other dogs out to their enclosed front porch one at a time to meet new guests in order to speed up the acclimation process. They were courteous and professional in all communications, and made sure to send me status updates and pictures on a daily basis. They will be my go-to people from now on and I highly recommend them.

Eli has had 25 visits to Chad and Lynn's for daycare and has had a great time. He looks so forward to going there! I appreciate what good care he gets during his stay!!! Eli thinks they do a PAWSOME job!!! Thank you....
Chad, Lynn, and kids were great. I took Lambeau for a meet and greet, and he immediately made himself cozy in their home. He then stayed with them for a weekend, and although he loves people and other dogs, it was his first time staying with someone that wasn't family or well known. When I saw Chad calming Lambeau as we pulled away, I knew he was in great hands. We received honest updates regarding how Lam was doing while we were away and when we picked him up. They were accommodating of my last minute reservation and were fantastic about taking on the slight challenge of a dog on a raw food diet. Thank you guys for helping me feel a little less anxious about leaving my fur-kid. We will definitely keep you in mind for next time!

Outstanding! If you are in the area or going to Hershey or Dickinson and don't want to have to worry about your pooch these are the folks for you. This was our first time leaving our pup with strangers and I was worried he would return fearful or stressed. Chad and Lynn and their household made sure that wasn't the case. They clearly know and love dogs and know how to introduce them to each other and what behaviors are normal. I'm sure our pup felt at home because he is behaving great after the visit. I will absolutely leave our pup with them again. I had considered crating our pup in a pet-friendly hotel when we were out but that would have been a mistake. He had much more fun with them and got much more attention than we could have provided on our short vacation and we got to enjoy ourselves without any obligations or responsibilities.

We feel very comfortable leaving our dog with Lynn and Chad. He is a nervous dog with some strange phobias, but their family handles it well. We will definitely use them again!
This was my first time leaving Charlie for a week, but I knew a home environment would be a better choice for him. Chad and Lynn helped to ease my concerns and provided updates throughout the week. Charlie acclimated well to their family, and the other dogs and settled in nicely. I am thankful that I now have a pet friendly home where Charlie can stay when I travel out of town.

Great experience for my dogs. They came home happy and tired. Chad and Lynn updated me throughout their stay with many photos. Highly recommend keeping your dogs here!
This was the first time I left my adopted dog and I was very nervous. I had a wonderful meet and greet and knew my dog would be in great hands!! They made my dog apart of the family and kept her routine as normal as possible. I will definitely be taking my dog back the next time I am away!!!

We were very pleased with the experience we had with leaving our dog, Bailey, with Chad and Lynn while we attended an out of town wedding for the weekend. Bailey has severe anxiety when crated, so the kennel was not an option. We were so glad to find a home setting for Bailey. Chad and Lynn provided frequent updates and pictures, so we were put at ease knowing that she was doing well and actually enjoying her stay! We definetely will use their services in the future!

Chad and Lynn were great! They gave us a thorough report when we picked up our dog and she was happy and appeared to have enjoyed her vacation!
Chad and Lynn were great with our dogs, and they were very accommodating with us. When we quizzed them with "what if..?" scenarios, they seemed to have a plan in place for everything. Most other DogVacay hosts in our area do not accept large dogs, but Chad and Lynn do, and they know how to accommodate them. We knew that one of our dogs would be nervous. At pick up, our hosts did not sugar-coat their report. They told us that it took a while for our one dog to settle, and how they handled it. That is the kind of honesty and trust that you can't put a price on. And even though our one dog didn't settle in right away, he came home much more calm than if he had gone to the kennel. We're looking forward to more stays with Chad and Lynn so that their home really does become a "home away from home" for our dogs.

I left our baby for one night while we had a date night out, she had great fun the family is wonderful their house and yard are fantastic nice location will be back next month!
Chad and Lynn were great. Flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. Kept us informed with text messages. Our nervous neurotic dog was much happier at their home than in a kennel.
Chad and Lynn (and family!) were fantastic. Extremely flexible with my ability to pick up and drop off (which changed a few times). They kept her crate training exactly as i asked. They sent regular updates and took great care of my puppy! She was worn out and happy when I picked her up! Would absolutely use them again and recommend them to anyone.

Jasper had a wonderful day with Chad and Lynn. He got along well with their other pets and their boys seemed to give him a lot of attention. He is now looking forward to our vacation when he will go and stay for 5 days.
My dog gets a little overwhelmed at traditional kennels...boy was that not the case when I picked him up from Chad and Lynn! It was obvious that he was happy and cared for the whole time I was away and I'll definitely be using them again in the future. 5 stars!

Happy pups = happy dog mom. They seem to be well loved and cared for when I'm gone. Thanks Chad, Lynn & family!
Chad, Lynn and family took great care of our dog Riley!!! They were very flexible with drop off and pick up times and had a great home and back yard for dogs! We will definitely send Riley to them again!!!
Chad & Lynn were quick to communicate when I asked about the status of my dogs when I was away. I truly felt that my dogs were being well cared for.
