Meet Linda

My pets are an important part of my family, as I'm sure yours are to you as well! My family and I have three cats and two dogs all of whom have been rescued from one bad situation or another. Our pets play a large role in enhancing our everyday lives. They provide my family and I with unconditional love, joy, and lots of cuddly company. For these reasons, I believe that pets deserve to be treated as part of the family, even when their family is away for work, school, or even on vacation.

Our pets play a large role in enhancing our everyday lives. They provide my family and I with unconditional love, joy, and lots of cuddly company. For these reasons, I believe that pets deserve to be treated as part of the family, even when their family is away for work, school, or even on vacation.

I have cared for many people's furry family members including a variety of dogs and cats, as well as other small animals. I provide the love, affection, and care that your pet(s) deserves when you cannot be available to them. When pets are in my care they have my undivided attention and are provided with the overall emotional and physical needs their family typically provides to them. I am willing to work towards your and your pets' needs as well as your schedule. I am bonded and fully insured for your comfort and security.

My references are always available by request to respect the privacy and valuable time of my clients. I would love to meet you and your pet!

Michelle W. says:
Linda is amazing! We hired her to watch our two dogs for a week while we went on vacation. Our boys adored her! She went above and beyond for them and us, taking care of their every need and even offering to stay overnight during a storm so they would feel safe and loved. Linda also gave some extra TLC to our Golden who had licked his front leg due to stress while we were gone, by cleaning and covering his leg... More

Margaret T. says:
I had a sudden and unexpected need for a dog care provider, for my toy poodle and very unpredictable chow, to feed and let my dogs out while I was at work. My daughter, who had watched the dogs while I was at work, moved out into her own apartment. I had one week off from work to find someone to care for my dogs or face taking more time off!

I was especially concerned about finding someone who could work...

Jacqueline W. says:
I called all of your references you gave to me before I hired you. They all gave you glowing comments of superior work, and I feel the same as your clients after you taking care of my four dogs. You kept a daily log of what time you were there, length of stay and what you did. This was not only extremely informative, but comforting to know what was taking place when you were in my home and the great care... More

We recently moved into the area & did not know where to find a dog walker. I found Lyn here on Care.com & could not be happier with her services. She is great with our dog, goes above and beyond our expectations, is extremely professional & I would highly recommend her to any family looking for pet care. I would be happy to provide a more detailed reference to anyone looking for a reliable dog walker or dog sitter. More

I have a 13 1/2 year old cat who is 100% a part of the family. I needed to find someone to take care of Bambina at a short notice and was very nervous about having someone that I really didn't know well taking care of her and my home. Surprisingly, when Linda came to visit, Bambina did not leave the room and hide. Instead she left Linda pet her, which is highly unusual.

I hired her on the spot! I was gone...

All-

Due to a surprise communication from my Doggie Day Care provider, I had to find emergency care for my dog, Fahey. Since my young cousin was away at college, I had to pursue assistance from an outside source.

Even though I received many responses from Care.com, there were very few individuals that stood out and then I received a note from Linda. When I looked at her profile, I knew that she was a...
