Dogs Over 1 Year Old
Spayed and Neutered Dogs
We feel so comfortable leaving Penny at Mindy’s. It’s a relaxed atmosphere and Penny enjoys interacting with the other pups. Mindy is great about sending photos and updates, too!
Thank you for another great stay!
Mindy is great. My dog is special needs and Mindy did what was necessary to keep him healthy and happy. She is very responsible. She took care of all my worries so I was relaxed during my time away.

I have owned dogs for over 55 years, and have extensive experience with many breeds and personalities. Located on a serene horse farm, your dog will have the run of a large secured back yard. When tired, they can come in and relax in the farmhouse. Plenty of hands on time and TLC occurs during the day. At night, your dog has its choice of sleeping in a bed or wherever they are comfortable. While ...
What Mindy would like to know about your dog
The only breed I will not host is an Akita. Aggressive dogs will most likely not do well with us here, as well. I am, however, able to completely separate a dog from the rest of the dogs, if necessary. My house is situated so that dogs can be in an area removed from others, if necessary. They will still have run of the yard, but not at the same time as the other dogs. PLEASE tell me ahead of time if your dog has any preferences...For example...How do they handle thunderstorms? Do they like to chew on soft pillows? Do they urinate when they are nervous? Do your dogs come when called? (This is a BIG one!) Please let me know if they do not obey a basic command such as "Come." This is my private home, and I am more than willing to host your dog. However, if they have habits that would be beneficial for me to know, it is your job to disclose that information. That would be incredibly helpful, to allow your dog to have the most stress free time with us. That being said, any property damage resulting from your dog's behavior will be your responsibility. I do my utmost to keep your furry family member happy, content and tired! In all my years of pet sitting, the times when damage occurs is practically nil. That being said, the more I know what your dog's needs are, the better I can meet them. When you schedule your dog to be dropped off, I try to spend time with them immediately to acclimate them to their new surroundings. Therefore, if we settle on a drop off time, and you are more than 15 minutes late, there will be a $50.00 fee. (Barring acts of God, of course.) You most likely have a very busy life, as do I. However, it is my job to see that your dog settles in well, and spending time with him/her right away assures that. I take the job of watching your furry family member seriously, therefore, please respect our drop off and pick up times.
