About Lynda

My partner and I work from home and would absolutely love to share our home and workspace with your beloved pets.

Unfortunately our lab Lucy recently crossed the rainbow bridge, and the house is just so empty! We’re still recovering from the loss so not quite ready to adopt a new dog but we have lots of time and love to give to other furry friends.

We have lots of experience with dogs of all breeds, sizes and temperaments. We are both very active and love going for long walks and spending time in nature. We particularly like visiting the beach and the river – both of which are within a 10-minute drive from our house. We're happy to take your dog on long energetic walks, or slow meanders around the block if that’s what works best for them.

We are mostly homebodies so your pup would get all the love and attention they need. We prefer a quiet night with a puppy on our lap over going out in the evening.

We can administer medication and keep up with any training routine that you may have.

The only potential issue we have is with dogs that bark excessively. We've recently had a new neighbour move in and he has absolutely no tolerance for dogs that bark. He's quite an unpleasant man! If your dog barks briefly when excited or when someone comes to the door, that's completely fine but if they bark a lot, unfortunately, we won't be able to take care of your pooch. Please let us know that you've read this and your dog is just an average barker if you're requesting boarding at our home.

If we're lucky enough to take care of your pet, they won't want to go home! We will treat them as if they were our own. They will have free reign of the house and the couch (unless they are not allowed to – we’ll stick to any rules you set).

Fantastic person, really appreciate the time she looked after Ranger, would recommend to anyone looking to have a puppy looked after for short or long periods, really personable & wants to know what your puppy needs and cater to it.

Thanks Lynda.

Have a wonderful Christmas & New Years
