Mandy took amazing care of my four animals while I was away on vacation. Their boxes were fresh and clean and the animals were happy when I returned. I highly recommend choosing Mandy to take care of your pets. Even my children have requested to see Mandy again and they were only briefly acquainted.

Mandy was excellent! Made friends with our dog before beginning walk. I will definitely contact her again in the future.

Red Rover, I’ll Come Right Over!

Please note, I offer dog walking and visits in Normandy Park and Des Moines area only at this time :)

After graduating from UW with a double major, I worked in the coffee industry for companies such as Tully’s, Starbucks and a local coffee roaster in roles from District Management to Business Development.
A little over a year ago, I transitioned from my high-travel/ high-stress job as a coffee consultant to a stay-at-home House Manager ...

What Mandy would like to know about your dog

I’m comfortable with any and all breeds/ ages/ temperaments. I have pretty extensive experience in behavior modification and rehabilitation from working with K9 trainers when I took in Ezra as a rescue.
In particular I have passion for pitbulls/ bully breeds and try to do my part in sharing with the world that there are no ‘bad’ breeds.
Let me know if your dog has special needs so that I can make sure to provide the best care!

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience

Depending on your dogs needs, we can take trips to park trails or simply walk around your neighborhood. I also understand that some folks prefer their dogs stay home. In that case, there are plenty of stimulating activities we can do together during a visit. My canine clients love frisbee, fetch and sometimes just a good brushing or pup massage :)
