I wanted to start out by staying I have a 3 yr old lab mix with separation and anxiety and I am totally that crazy dog mom.. It took me a while to find the perfect dog walker/ sitter but thankfully I did some research and that led me to Linda! She has consistently gone above and beyond for Jax and I to ensure he is provided with the best possible care. Because Jax was ...

My goodness. Ms. Linda had her work cut out for her this visit. Miss Bella was having a rough time adapting to her new food and my being alone, we aren’t sure. But being as awesome as she is, Linda put on her superhero cape and saved the day! She always goes above and beyond to make sure my baby is safe and happy. Thank you for another great visit!

What Linda would like to know about your dog

I have no breed restrictions when caring for dogs. What I would like to know about is what type of temperament your dog has. With that in mind please look at the notations below.

(1) For my safety, the safety of your pet, and to be sure your pet gets the care you want, a Meet and Greet before services start is a prerequisite to scheduling. Many dogs will react differently with a caregiver when you are there with them. To be proactive in keeping your pet safe I need to assess your dog's temperament, previous obedience training, and energy level so I have an idea of how they might behave when you are not with them.

(2) Requests for service for reactive dogs or those who are resource guarders will be accepted or not on a case by case basis based on behavior at the Meet and Greet consultation. If the request is accepted these visits will be scheduled for no less than 60 minute visits.

When Linda watches your pet

Walks and general enrichment are in the neighborhood that your dog is familiar with. The length and speed of the walk are based on your pet's age, health, and energy level, as well as the temperature outside. My goal is to develop a relationship with you so that we can work on a pet care plan together. This will give your pets the stability they need to feel comfortable while you are away!

And to help you rest easy, you have the security of knowing that I do NOT have young children that will be playing with your dog while you are gone. Children just don't know enough about canine body language to know when to leave a dog alone, your dog may feel trapped by the hugs of people he (or she) doesn't know, or your dog may see small children as prey. Unknown children around your dog could lead to disaster. You don't need to spend your time away from home worried about the potential liability of a child being bitten by your dog!

As a trained and multi-Certified Pet Care Professional I promise to care and protect your pets with all the love, dedication, and skill that I have. In short, I believe that all stages of life deserve quality care and support. To be there for your pets from 8 weeks to 18 years is an honor. My pet care services respect each stage of life with an appropriate care plan that reduces the fear, anxiety, and stress that can appear when pet owners depart, if even for a short period of time. As a bonus you'll feel secure in seeing the relationship I am developing with your pets through the photographs I send you. They will definitely show more than the back of your dog and the leash as we walk!

If you are looking for safe, qualified, professional pet care then contact me today! I would love to meet your pets and learn more about your pet care needs.
