Lynda took excellent care of our cat while we were away. She is a pleasure to work with and our cat absolutely loved her! We highly recommend her for drop-in visits/cat care.

I chose Lynda to take care of my two elderly dachshunds because of her years of experience at dog care. What was especially important for me was her canine medical training. One of my two dogs has recently developed a medical condition that concerns me when I have to be away.

Lynda was punctual with her visits, diligent in her reporting and very good with the dogs. They did well with her, and they are ...

Lynda walked my dogs Solo and Bruno when we both lived in Chicago and she was wonderful with them. They loved her and we're always happy to see her for their noon walk. Lynda was very reliable and I never worried about Solo and Bruno when she was caring for them. I used Lynda for 2 years before she moved to the DC area. I just moved to DC and am looking forward to using ...

Extra Care and Attention

Experienced with Senior pets and puppies.

I was raised with dogs and cats my whole life, not to mention fish, hamsters, mice, gerbils, pet rats, and birds. I also rescued an Ocelot, a small spotted leopard like wild cat, from a cage in a pet store and found him a rescue home for wild animals. In addition, all of the dogs and cats I had growing up were adopted from shelters and they all came ...

What Lynda would like to know about your dog

When I am taking care of your pet/s some of the things I would like to know are: Type of personality, nervous, reaction to storms, strangers, children or other outside animals. How do they handle the heat, cold or rain. Are there grooming habits that need to be done while you are away? The breed and size of your pet does not matter to me, if you have a large breed I just need to know if they are manageable when outside and being walked. Also if you want your dog kenneled at anytime, this would not be a good fit for me, as I will not kennel a dog at anytime. Just a personal preference, doesn’t make you a bad parent.

Since we will be at your house, we will do just exactly what you and your pup normally do! I imagine our day might look something like this: Morning love and kisses followed by wake up walk, indoor play time, whatever mom and or dad wants or suggests. Late morning and a midday walk with a trip to a park, if there is one where mom and/or dad would like the pup to go to otherwise maybe some sitting outside time. Nap time for pup, if she is tired and or used to sleeping during the day, followed by early evening walk. Bedtime snuggles and goodnight time. Feeding would be based on pup’s feeding schedule. And of course, pictures and status updates for mom and/or dad.
