About Mindy

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello Canine Parents, and welcome to my DogVacay page! My home has been the neighborhood home for my furry friends and furry neighbors for years now. I work from home, so I'm here just about 24/7. I have a large, fenced, yard that allows your pup(s) freedom to run, jump, and play. I have a medium-sized doggie-door that goes from my tiled "doggie" room to the back porch, which opens to my big back yard.

I have one pup...McCartney, my 8-year-old Boston Terrier, and FAB dog host. Her brother, my sweet Lennon boy, another Boston, passed over a year ago, and I’ve wanted to fill my house with all kinds of friendly dogs since.

I am certified in canine CPR & First Aide, and educated in oral & injected meds, as well as, senior canine issues.

My home is more than welcome to your dog/pup given:
* No aggressors. Be it toys, food, bones, kids, or other pups
* Must get along with my McCartney

***10% of my monthly proceeds go to animal charities.***

Your fur baby(s) will truly be on vacay at Mindy's (and McCartney's) Mutt Hut!

I have known Mindy Carty since 1990. She was then and still is a person who cares for animals and loves each and everyone of them. I would leave my animals with her anytime and know they are in a safe, comfortable and loving environment.

Mindy was terrific! Our baby boy, Bernard, who isn't an 11 month old Great Dane, had some seperation anxiety. Mindy was so great with caring for him, keeping us in the loop and sending us pictures. She loves her furbaby guests as if they are her own. Really appreciate the love and care she gave Bernard while we were away. Thanks, Mindy!
I couldn't have had a better experience for our dogs than what we had with Mindy! Her home was clean and very welcoming and I knew right away that she took pride in caring for our pups. Mindy is the only person that I will even consider for taking our dogs to in the future!
Mindy was wonderful! She sent me pictures twice a day of how much she was spoiling my Maggie & how comfortable Maggie was at her house! :-) I think Maggie didn't want to leave her big backyard, her new friend McCartney, and her new comfy couch!! Haha! Mindy was very flexible with drop off and pick up times too. I'll definitely be using Mindy again!
Mindy was excellent. We received pictures of our dogs and updates each day we were gone. I felt she treated them as if they were her own which allowed us to enjoy our trip and not worry about our dogs.
Wow! I think Mindy and McCartney should be the "poster kids" for Dog Vacay! Wonderful, thoughtful host with a lovely home, fenced back yard and everything (including pill pockets for his meds) that our pup needed to feel right at home. And McCartney the soccer-playing pup is an active little love bug. Raider thoroughly enjoyed his stay!!
Keightley will be staying again soon!
Keightley loves spending time there!
Keightley always loves staying with Mindy and McCartney!
Always a great experience for Keightley!
Treble had a great stay with Mindy she sent lots of pics and was always updating us. He came home super tired from all of his fun??
Bentley really enjoyed his time at Mindy's, with both her and McCartney. He loved having a huge yard to run in, and a welcoming bed to share with Mindy and McCartney. DogVacay/Mindy's has proved to be a much better fit for Bentley rather than boarding.
Mindy first set up and meet and greet, so we could get acquainted. We immediately realized this was the perfect spot for Shep. The care and service was outstanding. I would use her again. Big fenced yard also a plus.
Our dog Daisy had a blast. She came how excited and exhausted from playing with the other dogs. Highly recommend Mindy!
Mindy & her dog McCartney are great hosts! Location is convenient and never worry leaving Piper in such good hands!
My boyfriend and I were in Nashville for the night traveling from Texas for a concert. We took our pup for the car ride but needed a place for him to stay during the concert. Mindy was great! She had a large backyard for Oliver to play around in and there were other dogs there as well for him to play with. It was a great option for us and if we are ever in Nashville again and need a sitter, Mindy is who we will call! :)
Mindy was amazing! She was very easy to work with, and she is clearly a true dog lover. Her house has the perfect setup for any dog, because she has a big fenced backyard with a doggy door to the laundry room. Her house was also very clean and was easy to find, and I felt very comfortable leaving my pup there. It just felt "happy" there! She even sent me some photos of my dog playing, cuddling, sleeping, etc. throughout the weekend! I will definitely use Mindy again the next time I need to leave town for a few days. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, friendly pet-sitter.
This was an amazing experience for both myself and my puppy! My puppy was only 5 months when Mindy watched him and she did a fabulous job. He has a little bit of separation anxiety and before I knew it was getting photos of him running around in her big back yard having a great time. Mindy stayed in contact w me the entire time I was away. Mindy will definitely be my first call next time I need to go out of town!
Amazing experience! Mindy kept our 11 week old German Shepard puppy Nash when we went out of town. She took such great care of Nash. He had such a great time playing with her dog McCartney and running in her big fenced in back yard. It was our first time leaving our puppy and my wife was nervous but Mindy did such a great job with him and sent us tons of pictures and videos of Nash to put my wife at ease. We will definitely use Mindy the next time we go out of town!
Mindy is the best! She was gracious enough to take a last minute reservation and then took wonderful care of my Teva! She and McCartney got along so well and I loved receiving the photos while at work. I recommend Mindy 100% and will definitely use her again.
Mindy and McCartney were great hosts! Mindy kept me updated on my dogs throughout the day and sent pictures too! My mind was at ease knowing my dogs were in such a caring home. And McCartney played so well with my dogs that when they came home they slept almost all day! I highly recommend Mindy and will definitely be booking with her in the future!
My two golden retrievers LOVE going to Mindy's! Her fenced backyard gives them plenty of space to run and play - they come home tired and happy! I would highly recommend Mindy for your petcare needs, she ROCKS!
Keightley loves staying with McCartney! !! It is her home away from home! Will be booking again soon!
Klaus clearly had a fantastic time at Mindy's place. She obviously has a great love for dogs and makes sure they are not only cared for, but have an enjoyable experience. Mindy updated us with pics of Klaus relaxing and socializing with the other pups and we'd realized instantly he was comfortable and happy. Our dog's well-being is our top priority and I'd have absolutely zero reservations about leaving him with Mindy again. Pawsome. 5 Stars.
Our a Lucy had a great time and McCartney was a fine host! Mindy sent several pics to show us how she was doing and we love the huge yard for playing. Lucy was also free to sleep wherever she wanted in the house vs being in a crate overnight, which made us feel even better! Thank you, Mindy!
We asked Mindy to take care of Molly pretty much last-minute, so I really appreciate her adaptability. The meet and greet went greet and so did Molly's stay with Mindy and McCartney. She was hosting other dogs that weekend, but they were great as well and I know Molly loves being around multiple dogs. Mindy has a very nice and large backyard and a beautiful house where Molly felt like home! Mindy sent us pictures everyday while we were away which made our weekend way better.

Thanks Mindy! And we'll see you again!
Shes great my dog and hers get a log very well and its almost more of a perfect enviorment than my dogs actual home
Mindy and McCartney were great hosts to our sweet Molly. They immediately made her and us feel welcomed to their home. They spent time reassuring Molly and us that she would have a good time. They endured us checking on her numerous times and sending us pics of her having a good time. McCartney tried to teach her how to play soccer. Their home is comfortable and completely pet friendly. They loved Molly instantly and she could tell. She definitely wants to stay with them the next time she comes to Nashville.
Great experience!
Mindy was amazing from the start! During the meet and greet I could tell she truly loves dogs and knew how to care for them. And my pup got along with McCartney right away which was really reassuring! During the vacay we got daily updates with photos which we loved and the pick up / drop off was a breeze. Mindy is very personable, professional and has amazing accommodations! My husband and I are going to book her again for our next trip :)
This is the second time Millie stayed with Mindy. I had daycare for Millie fall through last minute and Mindy was super responsive and was able to take her on. It's clear Mindy loves, loves, loves dogs and Millie always leaves a happy (tired) pup!
Millie had a great time at Mindy's! I was especially happy since Millie was only 9 weeks old when she went, and I know puppies are extra work. Mindy sent lots of pictures of Millie throughout the weekend to let me know how she was doing. Fenced back yard/doggie door were great for getting in play time!
Belle had a great time with Mindy! Her large backyard with the dog door was perfect. Will definitely contact Mindy again for boarding!
Mindy did a great job caring for Marco while we were out of town. She has a giant fenced in backyard which Marco loved! Mindy is truly a dog person and knows how to properly care for dogs. 10/10!
