I’ve been using Bay Area Pet Pals (BAPP) for as long as I’ve had my dog (10+ years) and there is absolutely no other dog boarding service nor individual that I would trust to provide as outstanding a level of expertise with kind loving care as BAPP and Lynda. Lynda is experienced, professional yet personable and I have complete peace of mind and trust her implicitly whenever I leave my dog in her care. In fact, all my vacations are always scheduled with her availability in mind. I truly can’t imagine a pet care provider who could be any better.

Bay Area Pet Pals has earned my trust and business! The owner (Lynda) of Bay Area Pet Pals was responsive to all my emails while I was inquiring and searching for a pet sitter. Lynda was extremely helpful in ensuring me that her team was experienced and accountable for services provided. I am so grateful and happy that I found Bay Area Pet Pals. Brandy was excellent and took great care of Rue (my cat) while I was away. I received a text update from Brandy on Rue which I was very happy about as it put me at ease. She even sent me pictures of Rue :). I am excited to have a trusted team that I can continue to use for pet sitting in the near future. Bay Area Pet Pals is awesome. I definitely feel that they are a team of loving, trained caregivers for peoples fur-babies!

We've boarded our dog with Lynda for the past five years. We wouldn't trust our precious little one with anyone else. We truly have peace of mind knowing Ava is very well cared for. Lynda's house is immaculate and Ava gets to enjoy the familiarity of a home instead of in a small solitary boarding room. Lynda ensures Ava gets daily walks and her feeding rituals. We really appreciate that Lynda provides daily photo updates and is very accommodating to our requests.

We love Bay Area Pet Pals! We've been a customer for more than 6 years and have had two different, terrific dog walkers (one moved out of state) — both of them were/are reliable, trustworthy and adore our dog as much as we do. We've also used the owner Lynda's pet boarding services over the years, which have been a huge help. Lynda is caring, reliable, communicative, and treats our dog like one of her own. We always feel better having our dog stay with Lynda in a home environment rather than being boarded in a cage. Happy we found Lynda and Bay Area Pet Pals. Highly recommend!

We have been using Lynda’s services for more than a year now and they are fantastic. Cassie has been our dog walker and she was always perfect, on time and best of all, our 2 monsters (English Cocker spaniels) love her. We also had them …

I recently had Lori from Bay Area Pet Pals take care of my two cats while I was on a trip abroad. Lori did a wonderful job while I was away - she even sent daily updates to let me know that the cats were doing well. My shy cat even came out …

Bay Area Pet Pals have been a godsend for me. We were new to the Bay area 3 years ago and I didn't have the family I normally relied on to watch my cats. On top of that one of my cats is diabetic and the other has chronic kidney disease. …

We have been using Lynda/Bay Area Pet Pals for at least 7 years as our petsitter for our 2 little dogs whenever we are out of town or need for other reasons. There is no one else I would trust as much as Lynda to take care of them. Her …

I have been using Bay Area Pet Pals for 2 years now and our dog walker, Jodi, is awesome. They are flexible with last minute requests and very responsive. My dog enjoys his walk every time and he gets Christmas presents from Jodi too. I am very satisfied with their service and will continue using them for dog walks.

Top tier pet sitters. We use them every time we go out of town to watch our cats and salt water aquarium and everything is always great. Daily updates (with pictures!) really add to peace of mind and makes it slightly easier to be away.

Very rude communication when I inquired about services for the first time. (No common courtesy or greetings). Hard to believe to have people like this entering my home to care for my babies. Rates are above all competitors in the market.

I love this place for so many reasons. Lynda and her team are fabulous with my little dog. She doesn’t do well in larger format boarding facilities and being with BAPP is like being at a home away from home. I absolutely love my dog walker too. She’s super reliable and genuinely enjoys what she does.

It is my first time to be in this place together with my newly adopted Siberian Husky. At first, I'm a little nervous with how my dog will socialize with his fellows, but the place is AWESOME! glad that, Rocky, loved it and enjoy the place!
