Introduction: My friends jokingly call me Dr. Doolittle. Dogs are my passion and first love. All animals are, for that matter. Reptiles, Birds, Insects, Wild and Domesticated Animals - I simply adore them all! As a little girl my dream was to be either a Forest Ranger or a Marine Biologist. ::::What you will always get from us:::: Integrity, Clear Communication, Responsibility and Kindness. Your beloved pet family and your home will receive loving care during our time together. 🐾 An Animal Short Story 🐾 For 5 years we lived in a little cottage off a dirt road in the North Shore of Kauai, just steps from the ocean. What we cherished about our place was that the windows were always open to nature, and our front door was always open to visitors, human and animal. Nearly every day a dog, cat or wild chicken (and even the occasional wounded Mynah bird!) would come to our door for a visit. Some who we knew, and some we'd never met, would stop by because they knew they were near an animal loving house. Animals have a sixth sense about where they will be safe and loved. Lost animals, hungry animals, and animals just wanting some affection or to nap on our floor somehow would find their way to our home. 🌸 MY STYLE 🌸 I have a soothing and calming way with animals and their owners. Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Rats, Birds, Horses... all immediately know that with me that they have a solid leader who helps them feel secure, and someone with a mothering instinct who can recognize and meet their needs. 🧢 MEET JORDAN, MY CO-ADVENTURER 🧢 My best friend and animal loving business partner is my husband, Jordan. Having raised dogs and cats all of his life, he has a gentle, firm authority. He is particularly skilled at training dogs. And he gives the BEST doggie and cat massages. 🐕 EXERCISE FOR YOUR DOG 🐕 As an avid hiker, walker and beach explorer, dogs in our care get the exercise they need. A tired dog is a happy dog. I've become quite familiar with trails all over Marin, and have discovered some of the best kept secret off leash spots around. 🐾 MORE ABOUT TOI LYNN & JORDAN 🐾 I'm a licensed psychotherapist, yoga & meditation teacher, retreat leader and writer with a private practice in Mill Valley. I spend my early mornings writing and seeing clients, and the rest of my day I'm with dogs out in nature. Yes, I LOVE my work! I'm also an avid gardener and nature photographer. Jordan is a Relationship Manager for TalkDesk in San Francisco. He’s a yoga teacher as well, and passionate about animals, nature, cooking and pool. We've lived in the Bay Area for over 30 years. Most recently we spent 5 years in the North Shore of Kauai with family where Jordan was an Executive Director for a community park and I fell in love with taking care of animals. 🏠 HOMESITTING 🏠 We call it "Homesitting"instead of Housesitting because we truly do take care of your Home. To us, it is an honor to be in someone's place where they live their lives, and we do treat a Home like a living thing itself. A Home needs nurturance, is the place where memories are created and held, and for most, is a sanctuary. Our goal when we Homesit is to have you come back to a place that warms your heart when you walk in the door. 🐶When I spend time with your Pup 🐶 We’ll go on hikes, walks and other adventures in nature. I've raised and taken care of many water dogs, so I'm also happy being with them for water sports (beach walks, swims, chuck-it fun in lakes and ocean...). For older dogs or dogs just needing companionship, we can relax at home or hang out at a cafe, park or the beach for stimulation.

Pet Sitting

Toi Lynn is a rare and wonderful person who has a special way with animals. She was available last minute to stay with our little 10 year old pup recovering from a back pain incident. She was so responsive and her demeanor so warm and loving. Our dog bonded with her and Jordan right away. We came home to a happy, fully healed dog and house clean and perfect. Just the best person you can hope for when it comes to your furry loved ones and home <3.

Pet Sitting

You will know from "go" you can entrust Toi Lynn with your beloveds—her vibe is all that! From the outset I knew she would nurture my kitties, and I am very happy to have placed their care in her kind and conscientious hands. Also, if you're the kind who wants regular updates, you've got it: Toi Lynn corresponded by text, email, and photos to let me know that my felines were faring just fine while I was away.

Pet Sitting

My experience with Toi Lynn met and exceeded my expectations of a house sitter. Toi house sat for my two senior cats for six nights and things could not have gone smoother. She knew that I was a bit worried about one of my cats, Casper, as he’s more vulnerable and frail. She sent a picture of him looking pretty comfortable and in no way nervous especially as he’s sitting on her laptop! I have never known them to take to someone that quickly, if at all. Best of all the cats didn’t show their usual clinginess upon our return, a clear sign that they were just perfectly fine and had done very well indeed. 😻 Thanks so much, Toi Lynn.

You cannot meet Toi Lynn and notice her caring, professional and trustworthy character. Plus she's just one of those people you just want to have as a friend. She relates exceptionally well with animals and people. I feel so blessed to have her attend to my fur-baby dog Molly. Molly is skittish and doesn't always take to everyone. She instantly trusted Toi Lynn and was disarmed to carry about her normal "off-guard" personality, that let me know, she was totally comfortable and ease. I Highly recommend Toi Lynn. I sometimes don't want word to get about her, so she'll be available for my dog always. (sorry, not sorry :^) She's the best!

Toi Lynn brings beauty and calm to our home whenever she takes care of it and our beloved dog. She is very easy to work with and naturally maintains home routines with ease. Very glad she helps us and hope she’ll continue!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am currently available for Housesitting and/or PetSitting 7 days a week. Our house sitting / pet sitting rate is $60 to $70 per day/night. I am occasionally available for pet sitting (walks not included) for $15 an hour with minimum of 3 hours.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For first time customers, reach out to me and let me know what you are needing. We'll set up a free Meet & Greet at your home to get to know each other and make sure it is a good fit for all.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    🐾DOG EXPERIENCE: 🐾 My husband and I raised our Labrador Bodhi in our yoga studio where we managed over 35 classes a week, including parent/infant and children's classes. We said goodbye to our girl a couple of years ago, but raising her in a vibrant yoga community taught us so much about caring for dogs around all kinds of people and in a wide variety of situations. I've been dog sitting and walking professionally for 6 years now, and caring for dogs for over 17 years. Jordan has also been sitting dogs for 6 years, and caring for dogs all of his life. The dogs we've cared for over the years have become dear to us, along with their families. It really is a joy and honor to take care of these amazing beings and bring some ease and peace to their human companions.
