Lydia has taken care of my dog and cat several times. They are both geriatric and she takes great care of them and sends updates. I highly recommend her

Lydia did a great job with a drop-in visit with our dog. She was really responsive setting up the visit, and we felt so great that our dog was in such good hands. Will definitely be booking with Lydia again. Thanks!

I LOVE to care for & spoil dogs!

I grew up with a Labrador Retriever who lived to be 16 under my loving care. I adore dogs of all shapes and sizes. I have been providing excellent care for dogs for over 20 years. I currently have a dachshund and a terrier, but hope to have a large dog again someday. I particularly love large, athletic breeds that want to run and play! Hiking is a favorite activity for me and my dogs ...

What Lydia would like to know about your dog

I love all dog breeds, and have no preference! I will give the same amount of love and care to your dog(s) as if he or she were my own. If my dogs could talk, they might brag about how lucky they are to be so spoiled with love! I am interested to know if your dog has any special needs or quirks before sitting for him or her. I am happy to administer medications, give extra TLC to dogs recovering from an injury, or spend time with your senior dog.

When Lydia watches your pet

I would love to walk or hike with your dog(s) around Bozeman or Livingston. I love to hike and enjoy the outdoors with dogs! We could leave my dogs at home or have them tag along for extra fun - they LOVE to hike too!

**Please note that the "puppy rate" for Dog Walks ($30) is actually a "hiking rate." This is what I charge to bring your dog on a hike for 1-3 hours, with distance covered dictated by you, of course depending on your dog's age, level of fitness and energy, etc. Usually distance is somewhere between 1-4 miles. The price includes gas for our trips to/from the trails.
