Our little guy came back after his recent stay with Lynda content. He must love going on the daily walks and Tia’s company. I love getting the daily updates and photos.

Lynda is the best! We recently added a second dog to our family and Lynda has been so accomadating and helpful with the puppy. Now she takes care of both of our dogs and sends us even more photos with descriptions during their stay! :) Sadie and Summer are so happy to see Lynda when we drop them off! They have no separation issues when we leave! We’re so happy we have Lynda to care ...

Safe, Comfy Place for Your Dog

Hello! Looking for a safe and comfy place to leave your dog while you're away? Well, look no further! I have the benefit of working from home, so I can be there for your dog — all day long. We can have play time in the fenced in backyard, walks in the neighborhood or in the large rec room inside, if the weather is bad. My dog is social, friendly, with medium energy and would ...

What Lynda would like to know about your dog

It is important that your dog gets along with other dogs and has been left alone before. It is always helpful to know as much as I can about your dog's routine, special needs and behavior/training, so that the stay with me goes smoothly.

When Lynda watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks:
I will walk your dog on my road which is a dead-end with little traffic. Plus, we do a daily morning power walk about a mile in my neighborhood. Plus, there's plenty of room in the fenced yard for playing fetch and running freely. Exercising my guests help keep them calm and relaxed when away from their families.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
My own dog sleeps in her bed, which is a large plastic dog house. Your dog can sleep with my dog or if she/he has her own bed you can bring it. I have extra dog beds out for anyone to use. I also have a crate in case your dog is crate trained.

Time I'll spend with your dog
My dog is on a routine, so figure 5 to 6 times outside per day including play time in the back yard or rec room on the first floor. Also, I work from home, so I will be around for the dogs to supervise. I have baby gates and crates in case they are needed.
