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!

After leaving family and friends behind to move to Colorado with our 9 year old dog that had never been boarded or left with anyone besides family, we found Linda. Linda not only cares for our Maisy weekly for mid-day visits, but she has spent many long weekends with her staying at our house with her allowing Maisy to remain in the comfort of our home. We don't know what we would do without Linda caring for Maisy. She is a true pet lover and goes above and beyond to care for Maisy and help us out, sometimes even on very short notice. She has allowed us the freedom to explore the beautiful state we line in without any worry with Maisy in Linda's care. (March 2015)
