We could not have asked for a better, more caring dog sitter than Lina. She is truly a dog whisperer. She provided constant care and attention to our pup, sending pictures and updates frequently. Posie had such a wonderful time that I'm sure she was a little bummed to see her stay with Lina come to an end. We will definitely book again!

Lina was the best pet sitter! We booked her last minute for the week over Thanksgiving and she could not have been better. When we were gone, she sent tons of photos of Bandit, as well as some really cute stories about what they had done that day. She's also flexible with pick up/drop off times, and was really easy to coordinate with.

I also want to mention, our dog is energetic and extremely ...

We are the biggest Lina fans. She is reliable, warm, patient, attentive, and an animal lover. We've entrusted our dog with her for years, and have only ever had a positive experience. As Lina is also active and a walker and runner, she has been one of our few dog caregivers to truly exercise our dog and make sure he is outside and has long walks. He is always excited to see her, as are ...

Safety, Company, Exercise, Love

My job has required a lot of travel in the past, and for this reason, I haven't been able to own my own pet. By being a foster parent at the Seattle Animal Shelter and doing lots of pet-sitting, I've managed to still have animals be an important part of my life!

We are all so busy these days, and our pets get squeezed between our appointments and obligations. So when I'm with your dog ...

What Lina would like to know about your dog

I have no preferences for breeds! I have watched pure breeds and rescues. I would like to know if your dog has any challenging habits or behaviors and all the ways you calm him/her. I'd also like to know in advance about your dog's daily routine and favorite treats and activities. I'll do my best to keep to that routine and your style of care-giving.

When Lina watches your pet

If you live in the Wallingford area, you know that there are so many wonderful places for a dog to be a dog: Greenlake, Gas Works, the off-leash dog area in Woodland Park, Ravenna Park, etc. I love being outside in all weather and the only thing better is to be outside with a wagging tail. Wherever your dog(s) and I go, it's their time, not the human's time. I believe in letting them sniff as much as they want, chase balls forever, and be curious about the world as they wish to be within the bounds of safety. And for those sensitive dogs who hate being cold or in the rain, I'm just as happy pitching a few balls in the yard and coming right back inside for some cuddles.
