About Mimi

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work at home in a quiet suburban neighborhood - 1 mile away from a wonderful 3 acre fenced dog park (includes a separate small dog area for timid pint size pooches), and 1/2 a block from 3 other parks. I have one sweetie pie mutt, Wilson, who is a silly happy guy; he loves all other dogs and really enjoys having doggy guests come to stay :) Your dog will be very loved here!

A typical day for Wilson includes a 3 mile hike on leash or a nice long visit to the dog park (lots of off leash happiness and fetching), and a couple walks around the neighborhood. Wilson is easily entertained and I will cater the exercise and care to your pooch, depending on age and physical needs. I am home working all day, and your dog will be able to relax for that reason. Your best friend will feel like a member of our family!

My house is very low key - an older home with wood and laminate floors and some rugs. While very clean, I do not stress about everything looking perfect all the time. Dog bones and chewy toys are the norm. At night your pooch will sleep beside my bed - on a dog bed next to Wilson's, one of my two crates (small and large), or one that you provide.

I welcome the opportunity for you and your pet to meet me before your dog's vacation begins! At this time you can also provide me with details of your pet's personality, schedule, and special needs. This also gives your dog the chance to get acquainted with the surroundings and have a look around to make sure that they like the place as well. I am just a few blocks off of I-90, very convenient and easy to find.

I've had dogs my whole life and have taken many obedience classes through the years. I understand and can entertain different personalities and older dogs. And, of course, I am happy to send you pics and updates while your dog is here :) I will carry over all your rules or lack thereof depending on your wishes.

Though my kids are grown and on their own, I have two neighbor boys who love to accompany us to the dog park and on walks (see pics). They are likely to give your dog many bonus hugs and snuggles, if you are comfortable with them being involved.

Because this is a home environment, the following house rules apply for safety and comfort of both your dog and Wilson:
- must be 100% housebroken
- must be neutered or spayed
- must not show any aggression or destructive behavior
- must be up-to-date on vaccinations.
- must be relatively clean and in good health

Wilson and I look forward to meeting your four legged family member!

We have had Mimi or her daughter sit for us many times and would hire her anytime. She is very responsible and loving and the animals really like her.

I have known Mimi (and her happy dogs) for many years! She is not only a very loving and kind person, but so much fun, too! She can look at things from the perspective of a dog and know just what they need to feel happy and secure. She will make your canine family member feel like a part of her family as well, giving responsible, loving care.

Mimi watched my beloved pet for nearly a month. She gave him regular attention and adjusted care to his needs, so while he missed us and was unhappy at first, he was happy and cheerful when we picked him up. Mimi loves dogs, and I recommend her very highly.

Mimi has cared for our pets on many occasions, and has taken great care of our indoor and outdoor animals. She is kind, responsible and knowledgeable, She is very neat and clean, and keeps the animals fed and happy. Our dog Buster loves Mimi!

Mimi is a fabulous pet watcher. She absolutely loves animals and is very concerned with details. I have known Mimi for 30 years, and she takes care of her animals; as if they were her own children.

I have known me me for over 30 years, and she is my best friend. Mimi is extremely passionate about two things. These are animals and nature. I have watched Mimi own pets through the years, and she takes the utmost care with them. She loves them as much as her children and treats them with amazing kindness. I would trust Mimi with my own pets; as I have two small Yorkies. I would be able to go away and not worry at all about them; if I knew they were with Mimi.

Mimi and her dog were amazing hosts. I left my 2yr old dog with them for a week while I traveled for work. She sent pictures and updates regularly which helps when leaving your fur baby with a new person. My Rosie came home happy, healthy and tired. We will definitely use Mimi again!
I had a great vacay with Mimi. Must admit I was a little hesitant at first due to the newness of it all. Mimi made me feel right at home and I enjoyed spending time with her, Wilson and Fozzie. She even pretended not to notice when I "sneaked" up on the couch. Looking forward to my next visit. I rate Mimi four paws up!
Mimi is very kind and caring to the dogs she looks after. I feel very comfortable leaving my yorkie with her. I would recommend her to anyone.
