    I would trust Mindy with any of my animals! I did not have to worry at all and she did what was expected and more. My dogs (boxer and shitzu) loved her from the time she walked through the door to meet us. I definitely plan to use her services again.

    My dog loves walks with Mindy! She is very knowledgeable about dogs and their needs and takes good care of ours when we are out of town.

    We LOVE Mindy! She has been walking out dachshund Ernie and she is immensely patient with him. I also appreciate her professionalism and calm demeanor. She's fantastic with dogs! Two thumbs way up!

    I ALWAYS call Mindy!!!! My dogs love her. She knows her first aid stuff too. I have saved at least one vet call by calling her first with my question.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Before caring for your dog, we will have a "Meet & Greet" (free of charge) where we will talk about your pup's schedule and preferences. During this time, you, your pup, and I will be able to get to know each other and see if this is a good fit for everyone.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
15 minute walk/play time: $10 for 1 dog -- 30 minute walk/play time: $15 for 1 dog -- Nail clipping in your home: $15 per dog -- Other services/prices available on my website (link above).
How did you get started doing this type of work?
During my work with rescue, people always commented how good I was reading a dog's body language, and friends started asking me to care for their pups. Starting a business was a "no brainer"!
