He was so affectionate with our dog and our cats, and treated them like I would assume he would treat his own. Our Golden Retriever has an abundance of energy and is not easy to handle sometimes, but Lynes was so patient, kind and wonderful with him and found humor in his puppy antics. I am usually the one to overly worry about my animals, but when we left for our trip, I found myself free of worry because I knew our animals, and our house, were in good hands with Lynes. During our trip he sent me daily updates with pictures, and when we got back home our house was clean, our dog was calm and happy, and the cats were well taken care of. Lynes has now become an invaluable part of our lives, and continues to take our dog out for walks when we can't. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter and dog walker and feel so lucky we found him! We would highly recommend Lynes to anyone looking for a reliable pet sitter and we will definitely be using him in the future for doggie walks and for pet sitting!
