Linda Symons and Niles Symons of Niles and Friends Pet CareMy name is Linda Symons.  I live in Southeast Fort Collins with my family and our delightful Welsh Corgi “Niles”.  I was a kindergarten teacher before moving here in 2008 to care for my Mom.  Our classroom had many pets over the years; including guinea pigs, geckos, fire belly toads, and Australian tree frogs.  I took great pride in caring for them and teaching the children to love and respect animals.  I have approximately fifteen (15) years pet sitting and dog walking experience for friends and families at my school in La Jolla, California.

In my free time I workout at a gym and volunteer at a local assisted living home.  I would appreciate the opportunity to assist in caring for your special pet(s). Please take a look at the pet sitting services area and review the types of pets I care for in your home. Also, this page has some great pictures of Niles and friends – truly!

Since moving to Fort Collins in the summer of 2014 we have been frequent clients of the pet sitting services of Niles and Friends. We have an energetic boxer who adores Linda Symons and my husband and I feel lucky that we have found Niles and Friends. Linda is trustworthy, reliable, and extremely capable. Her prices are very reasonable especially for the level of service and care that she provides. We are completely at ease when we are out of town, as we know that Linda is in charge of our sweet but rambunctious canine and our home. If you are looking for a dependable and accommodating pet sitting and dog walking service, Linda Symons and Niles and Friends should be your first, and perhaps only, choice for the Fort Collins area.
