Lynn did a great job with our two doggies. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her in the future! Our dogs were excited to see us when we got home but not to the point that they drove us crazy:) Haha More like, oh you guys are back, we didn't realize you were gone, we had a fun week! One of my dogs was very sad and whimpered when Lynn left.Jan 15, 2015Verified

I just hired Lynn to pet/house sit for 7 days and nights while I was travelling internationally and unavailable. I have 8 kitties, several with special needs. Lynn is a mature woman, experienced with pets, but most importantly her care and compassion for the animals cannot be surpassed. My house was spotless as if she wasn't there. I asked her to eat food I left, but she brings her own and tries not even to leave a footstep! If she'll come to help me again, I will use her again and again. I found her through an internet search, and I thank my lucky stars that I did. Happy to speak with you if you would like a conversation and I have given Lynn permission to give my name out. I checked her out thoroughly with her landlord of 5 yrs, who also gave a glowing report.Aug 6, 2013

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started pet sitting when I lost all three of my pets to old age and illness in the span of a year. It was too soon to bring a new family member home, but my desire to love and care for animals hadn't lessened. Since I was also looking for an enjoyable and meaningful part time job, things fell into place for starting a pet sitting business. I feel very fortunate to do what I do. There is nothing better than knowing that the priorities of your heart and the priorities of your work are the same.
