Collies & Beagles & Labs! Oh, My!

Hello! My name is Mindy, and I look forward to being your dogsitter. A little about me:

• I grew up in the northwoods of Wisconsin and had a ton of pets as a kid including horses, ducks, cats, gerbils, fish, rabbits, and, of course, dogs.
• One of our dogs was blind and had seizures, while some of our other dogs had issues with arthritis or other illnesses as they got older. So I have experience ...

What Mindy would like to know about your dog

I am comfortable with dogs of all ages, sizes, breeds, and abilities, so no worries there.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Things that will help me know how to provide the best care for your dog:

*What is their personality like? Are they shy or nervous around strangers? Do they like to snuggle? Are they bold and adventurous?
*What is their daily routine like?
*How often are they fed? How often can they receive treats?
*How often would you like for them to go outside/go for a walk?
*Are they on any kind of medication or need any special care?
*Do they have any disabilities or special needs?
*How are they around other dogs/animals? Are they able to enjoy the dog park?
*Any other little quirks or habits that I should know about (i.e. afraid of thunderstorms, likes to chew shoes, barks at the school bus every morning as it goes by)?
*How often would you like to receive pictures or updates about your dog while you are gone?
*Is there anything else that I can help you out with during my stay (bring in mail, water plants, fill birdfeeders, take out garbage/recycling, etc…)?

When Mindy watches your pet

For housesits, I spend every night at your home so that your pet has someone there with them.

**DOGS: My housesits include 1-2 walks a day (depending on your pet's age and energy level), giving them their meals and any medications, letting them out for potty breaks, playtime, and spending the night at your home.

**CATS: I am more than happy to also watch your cat(s) for you. If I do not need to provide care for your cat(s) during my stay (i.e. feed them, clean their litterbox, give them medication), then there is no charge. Otherwise, my fee is $10 per cat per night.
