    We have used Darci at Lovin' My Leash to walk our dog as well as take care of her while we are away. I think the best recommendation comes straight from our dog in that our dog loves Darci and gets excited to see her.

    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!

    Thanks Alex, your words mean a lot to me. I miss Rock dearly and know he is irreplaceable.

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
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.
What types of customers have you worked with?
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.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
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).
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
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.
