    Darci is wonderful. We are so glad we found her and Thumbtack. Darci is sweet and professional. She even stayed longer during a visit because she gets along so well with our puppy. We would definately recommend Darci.

    I highly recomend using Lovin My Leash! My dog Rock sadly passed away a few months ago, but during his almost 11 years here he was blessed to spend hundreds of hours with Darci( the owner of Lovin My Leash- who I have known for several years). Rock was a 105 lb. Pit and many people were afraid of him because of his size, but Darci was never nervous and from day 1 built a great bond with my boy! She was always available for any help I needed day or night! Rock took to her like they knew each other for years and she was the only person I was comfortable allowing Rock to be alone with. I have had the chance to observe Darci with several other animals ( I have also seen her with several cats ) and she treats all animals like they are her own! I know if I were going to trust anyone with my loved ones it would be Lovin My Leash! I can comfortably say that Darci will make you feel like she is one of your family. If you give your pet the chance to meet Darci I know that she will show you too just how lucky you are to have found her!
    Thank you Lovin My Leash for being so great to my best friend Rock! He cherished all his fun time with Darci!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. The most common jobs I do for my clients are is Walk-N-Play, which is one of the packages I offer. W-N-P consists of fresh water upon arrival, 20 / 25 minutes of walk time and some extras depending on the requests of my clients at no extra charge.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Interview more than on potential care giver, check references and go with your instinct who you feel will be the best fit for you and most important your pet. During the initial interview, keep an eye on their interaction with your pet(s).

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Most important to me would be to look for references -- after all potential caregivers are taking care of what most would call their most prized possession.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Buyers should thoroughly think about what kind of a person would suit their pets personality best. Not only their own.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Initially walking into a clients home and being greeted by their pet(s), then comes bonding with them . I am lucky to be granted the opportunity to spend time with their loved ones.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. When potential clients make their choice from one of Lovin’ My Leashes offered packages, during our Free Initial Consult.

L’ML packages can consist anywhere from of 20 - 35 minutes; potential clients are not aware how much extra time I actually put in with their loved ones / best friend(s). Between always fresh water upon arrival, feeding (if required), writing of report cards (if required), If I see a nail or more that may be in serious need of clipping I do so at no extra charge although it is a service I do offer but never charge unless asked and made a requirement of a client.

With the above being stated, I never take away from their pets exercise. Their walk time is most important because it is when I am able to bond with their pet.

In addition, there is a growing epidemic of obesity in pets, which can cause cardiovascular disease, different kinds of cancers and diabetes to mention a few.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I have always loved animals since I can remember and worked at a few different animal clinics in my past but knew I always wanted to be a business owner.

A very good friend of mine who works in the IT field was aware of my desire to own my own company and my love for animals. He invited me to his shop for a visit in 2010 and next thing I knew he was showing me a website he created with my contact information all over and low and behold, it was a pet care website.

What a surprise that was. From then on, I chose to go with it and here I am 3-years later.

Q. What is your greatest strength?

A. My dependability - In this industry, it is more than pertinent I be there when I say I am going to be. Although I obtain emergency contacts, I have made the commitment and because of that, I will be there.

Q. What are you currently working on improving?

A. I feel every Potential Client / Clients questions and thoughts are extremely valuable to me in order to give their pets the best care possible. Which leads me to always adding to the 'L’ML Welcome Folder' and making alterations using their input on my works entirety.

As I go along my Welcome Folder has become invaluable to my work.
