Mindy was great with my dog Leo. She was extremely flexible, accommodating and sent pictures during Leo’s stay. I would highly recommend Mindy to anyone who is looking for a caring, loving dog sitter.

I felt very confident that my dogs were well cared for while with Mindy. She sent me pictures and updates daily. I would definitely have them stay with her again. I highly recommend Mindy for any dog related services!

I love them like they are my own!

I am a lifelong animal lover who has been pet sitting for people in their homes for many years. I specialize in geriatric and special needs animal care which includes administering shots and medications. Post surgical animals are also welcome and I am able to transport pets in need to doctor appointments while you are away for an extra charge. I also deal with behavioral problems excluding aggressive tendencies towards any pet in my home ...

What Mindy would like to know about your dog

I like to know as much as possible about my client's animals so I can customize each animals care. Because I specialize in special needs animal care, whether it be medical care or animals who need special care due to behavioral problems, the more I know about their needs the better care I can provide for them. I want each animal in my care to trust me and to feel safe while in my home.

When Mindy watches your pet

I am a very loving petsitter. I utilize music therapy and massage therapy as a regular part of my routine to relax the animals that I care for. I am very consistent in the care I provide for the animals. They are on a schedule that makes them comfortable because they know what to expect. An example would be going out to the bathroom before breakfast and having their walks late morning and after dinner with a bedtime treat. Text message updates with pictures are also included to let clients know how their pets are doing. The animals in my care are treated with a great deal of love and respect. I am able to provide the extra special care that you want them to have while you are away.

When I watch people's pets in their own homes I am also able to care for cats, small animals and exotic pets for no additional fee. I visit the home first for a meet and greet so the animals know that their humans approve of me being in their homes. I have the client fill out some paperwork about the animal's behaviors and the routines that they know and are comfortable with. I send text updates including pictures of pets to the owners so they know how their animals are doing. As with the care in my home, when I pet sit in the pet's home the care is completely customized to the pet's needs.
I can do post surgical visits and can perform special care to animals that need it such as dressing changes and administering medicine orally as well as injections under the instruction of the owner and pets veterinarian. I am also experienced in hospice and end of life care for beloved pets as well as planning pet funerals. I love them from beginning to end and I provide unconditional support not only to the animals in my care but also to their owners.
