Summer was still elated when I got home. It’s very comforting that even at the last minute you guys have my back and Summer is in great hands. She is looking forward to your next visit Becca thanks as always for your care!!

We are thrilled with the service. The sitters are professional and loving to our two labs, even though our younger dog can be quite a challenge! The service is dependable and Heidi always responds promptly and with a solution when we need last minute coverage.

I am a nurse who works overnights and the dog walkers have been so quiet coming in! I totally appreciate it!

Blue LOVES Becca. His photos make my day at work. Rob and I love having her watching out for him and giving him lots of love. Great service and easy access to schedule.

The ladies took awesome care of Finn today. Please let them know he is home and he is stable.  I REALLY appreciated their initiative and recognition of a serious problem. He is on the mend now and I will be working with the doctor for a long term plan to get him healthy.  Thank you Becca and Cherie very much!!

Jane was phenomenal! We got daily updates on Tessie with pictures. We were very confident that she was being very well taken care of. This is the third time we have used your service and would not hesitate to use it again.

I wanted to let you know how happy we were with the care our dogs received last week.  Joan was awesome and really made an effort to make our dogs feel comfortable and at ease.   The regular updates and photos meant that we were able to relax a bit more while we were away.

Jane and Joan are the most amazing dog walkers Stella has EVER had! Literally, she loves them. They’re so good. I’m so in love with the journals! 🙂 The service is perfect!

Love the daily journal and care that the walkers show to Lou. I will recommend to everyone who asks for a recommendation!

All of the sitters that took care of Scooby and Scout were amazing. The dogs were calm when we got home so we know they were well cared for. We loved seeing the pictures of the dogs playing in the yard. We really appreciated that the sitters cleaned up when the dogs had accidents. We weren’t expecting the dogs to do that and the sitters just handled it. We love Heidi’s Hounds and will definitely use again. The pictures and updates gave us peace of mind and we know our dogs were well cared for and happy while we were gone.

Katie Merrigan, Hingham, MA

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with Tricia and all of the great care Murphy got this weekend! I so appreciate your willingness to put that together on such short notice and it was so reassuring to know that Murphy was taken care of! All of the reports were great and he was in great spirits when I got home!

Your company is impressive, I was extremely delighted with the intake process and Joan the sitter.  Her communications were informative and amusing.  This is a top rate service.

Stuey loves Joan! He practically screams with joy when he sees her.  Heidi is very helpful especially with last minute requests making accommodations to meet needs. Greatly appreciated

Eileen Whalen, Hingham, MA
IMG_1465

Good communication in the journals and very adaptable to my suggestions. The pups have adjusted to the switch from another service and seem more settled when I get home, which is great. I attribute that to the dogs trust and confidence with their dog walker.  Professional and responsive to my needs which inspires confidence in the service.  Not having to worry is a service in itself!

Carol Livingstone, Weymouth, MA

Want to give a shout out to Heidi Zazza and Heidi’s Hounds for taking such good care of our dog Lila while we were away. She enlisted Joan who works for her and after every walk we got an email with photos and a blurb about their time together. So nice to know Lila was in good hands and having so much fun. Professional, fantastic at what they do and I would highly recommend Heidi’s Hounds if you ever need a pet sitter, dog walker {and word has it they also have home concierge services too}.

Susan Boyd, Hingham, MA
IMG_0182-new700be144

Heidi’s Hounds is the best!!! Professional service with loving care. My yellow lab Sam looks forward to being walked and cared for by “his ladies”. I always know he is safe and happy when he is with the team. Great updates and pictures too. The website is fantastic and easy to use to take care of all aspects of your pet’s care. I love the HH team!!!

Karym Murphy, Cohasset, MA

We just wanted to say thanks for providing a reliable, quality service.We’ve been home the past few days and seen Becca in action. We wanted to give her a particular shout out for the great care and attention she provides. She’s amazing! Layla sprints over to meet her and they clearly have a blast together.  So thanks to you and your team. It reassuring to know she’s in such good hands everyday.

It was so nice having Joan here at our house to take care of our beloved furry friends. While I was away I knew they were in loving and caring hands and each day there were updates on the ‘boys’ and I could see they were having a great ‘stay-cation’ back at home!

Monica Schipul, Scituate, MA

Rebecca was great – she kept us updated and did everything we asked! We loved the updates and photos!

Heidi Visser, Hingham, MA

So glad I found you guys! The walkers are awesome and so attentive to Rosie (and patient with her laziness) and provide such great updates and pictures! So nice to get those while at work and know she’s all set at home. The online system is so easy and convenient, the walkers are awesome and everyone who has kept Rosie overnight has been so caring and wonderful.

Emily Melia, Hingham, MA

This is an excellent pet service! We feel very comfortable leaving our dog in their hands! Sophie was well taken care of and a happy dog when we came home!

The dog walkers have been very flexible while we have work done on our new house. Even traveling to another house to pick up Lyla for walks. They’ve been great about the flexibility of Lylas crate in/around the house. We really appreciate how easy Heidi’s Hounds makes scheduling our walks with our changing schedules! The online portal is an amazing feature of Heidi’s Hounds. We have all of our updates in one place and can easily make changes, schedule services, and leave notes for our walkers. We never have to stress about plans for our pup. We love Heidi’s Hounds! You guys are great!

Jamie Wilson, Norwell, MA

I am so happy that I took the plunge and left my very senior and blind Yorkie Jazzy with Joan for four days. I was extremely nervous based on previous attempts with family members when Jazzy wouldn’t eat and struggled with being left by me. The photos and comments sent by Joan almost immediately caused a tremendous relief that stayed with me for the time I was away. I can’t thank you enough and would highly recommend Heidi’s Hounds to anyone who has concerns about leaving their pet with a caregiver.

Marilyn Cassidy, Newton, MA
IMG_6308

During our initial meeting I knew very quickly that Joan was going to show a lot of love to or pets while we were away. I also noticed her attention to detail and this made me feel I could trust that this was going to be a great experience for our dogs and for peace of mind while we were on vacation. Instead of feeling badly that my pets were left behind, I knew they were getting quality care because of the several pictures and notes we received daily. Heidi’s Hounds was very efficient and clear as well as user friendly. Overall it was a great experience

Elizabeth Cassidy, Waban, MA

The sitters are so reliable and willing to help. They are prompt and communicative. I could not do this without them.

Michele Henderson, Hingham, MA
Bella-McLaughlin

Cherie, Joan, and Heidi were all fantastic! The regular communications and photos put my mind at ease and I never worried for a second about leaving Bella for more than a week. She was extremely happy when I arrived home, a sure sign that she enjoyed all the walks, attention, and playtime! I cannot say enough about how great everyone is there. From my first meet and greet with Heidi to my last week-long trip away, the sitters are responsive and reliable, and the pet journals and photos always put a smile on my face. The online scheduling tool is convenient and easy to use and I love being able to keep tabs on things when I’m traveling. I would recommend Heidi’s Hounds to anyone who wants peace of mind when they aren’t able to be home with their pets.

Kimberly McLaughlin, Hingham, MA
IMG_0130-new

Your sitters followed all my pet care instructions and communicated well. From the notes, I could see that the sitters tried to engage with my cats at every visit, and even managed to get one to come out and play by the end of the week.

Brenda Borowski, Weymouth, MA
IMG_4489-new

I love how easy and convenient this is!! Love getting the updates from every visit along with the pictures!! Shawney never did well in the kennel environment, so we are so happy to have found you!!

We booked Heidi’s Hounds after not being happy with our dogs day care boarding services. I really thought Heidi’s Hounds was going to be too good to be true. They exceeded our expectations and I will be strictly using them in the future for our dog! When originally reaching out, Heidi and Joan came to our home to meet our pride and joy (crazy dog parents lol) and learn more about our german shepherd and what we were looking for. When it came time to booking, we were able to do it online and any little changes or question that we had, were answered quickly and accommodated. Joan watched our German Shepherd for 5 days while we were away and I can’t find the words to describe how awesome she was! She provided journal entries and photos multiple times each day and provided us with such a peace of mind when traveling and feeling bad for leaving our dog. We went to Disney World and I actually think our dog had more fun with Joan than we did!! When we got home and Joan came back with our dog, he was actually sad when she left!! Heidi’s Hounds is a bit more $$ than your typical dog boarding facilities but I actually think its a steal for what you are given. Next time we go on a trip or are away from home a little too long, we know exactly who we will be calling!!

Cristina Adams, Weymouth, MA
IMG_1910-new

Love the online scheduling, payment and journal. So convenient! I like that you have a wide range of products and are always looking to add new ones. I appreciate the availability and reliability of the dog walkers. Tremendous help for me. Great service!

I would recommend Heidi’s Hounds to anyone looking for dog care services. Communications were excellent. You understood Miley’s needs and partnered her with a perfect match with her walker. Cherie was excellent with Miley. The patience she had with establishing a relationship with Miley was outstanding. I felt Miley was in good hands and was able to relax and enjoy my vacation. I looked forward to receiving the comments on each visit.

Deb Leonard, Weymouth, MA

We boarded our 7 month old pup for a week. Joan was amazing. We felt like she took care of Oscar like he was her own. I can’t say enough good things about Heidi’s Hounds. They are very organized and professional. We received updates 3 times a day with pics. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a reliable pet sitting service. Very professional!

Lera Mullen, Scituate, MA

Everything went exactly how we hoped it would while we were away, we loved the daily emails with pictures & my girls really looked forward to seeing them every morning. Mya adjusted well to the change in her world while we were away & that’s all due to how the sitters took care of her. As a pet owner who has never used a pet service of any type we were more than pleased with everything about Heidi Hounds. I will most definitely refer friends & family. Thank you so much for making our time away worry free.

I want to express our sincere gratitude for the great care you are giving Koa. We knew right away when we met you that you would be great to work with and you have beyond exceeded our expectations. We love the notes and pictures! Although we are new to the area we will rave about you and your team to anyone who will listen, haha. Thank you so much for everything and allowing us to rest easy knowing that our little baby is in good hands. Hope she isn’t being too stubborn for the walkers…she is a big personality for a small dog! We look forward to a long and great relationship with you all.

Cherie made an effort to get to know each of our boys personally and was responsive throughout our time away.  Communication system is great!

Brie Williams, Hingham, MA

Jane was awesome! She definitely made Rosie feel right at home based on the pictures of her snuggling up and making herself comfortable! Everything has been great! The online system is so convenient, the journal entries/photos are so comforting when you’re away and everyone has been so nice!

Emily Melia, Hingham, MA
IMG_7755

Heidi was responsive from our very first interaction. I felt comfortable knowing our high energy (and needy) pup was in very capable and professional care. Joan was amazing with Jackson. She worked on a specific behavior and he came home responding to a new command. The daily updates and pictures were great.

Joyce Watson-O'Neill, Rockland, MA

Heidi’s Hounds is very professional and everything I need! It is so nice to get a very personal note regarding my dog.

Pamela Kuzia, Weymouth, MA
IMG_7121-new

The updates confirm that you really interact with both dogs, and intimately understand their personalities. I know my animals are loved, happy, and safe while I’m away. Peace of mind is invaluable; I am so lucky to have found you!

WE LOVE JOAN!!!!!!!!!!!! She is so caring and we can tell that Finn loves her. We think he likes Joan better than his own family! He got lots of love and attention and we couldn’t be happier!  So glad I found Heidi’s Hounds!

Jane was wonderful with communication and sent lots of pictures which we enjoyed while away.  Heidi’s Hounds is very easy to work with, great communication, and I was completely at ease leaving my new puppy knowing he was in a safe and loving environment.

Sarah Doggett, Hingham, MA
IMG_5255

Joan was an amazing communicator when we were on our trip. It was hard leaving a puppy at home, but Joan’s communication really put us at ease. We were able to enjoy our trip knowing that our girls were being very well taken care of.

As someone who works in the pet care industry I fully understand the pressure and responsibility which comes along with caring for peoples’ pets. Finding somebody who can deal with dogs that may be challenging is even more difficult. I have two large dogs who are not exactly social butterflies and require some specialized care. I have never hired a pet sitting service to care for my dogs while I was out of town, instead I always chose to leave them in the daycare facility I work for. I have acquired a few more dogs however and splitting them up to leave some at home was much more convenient. After looking at a few local dog walkers and pet sitters I spoke with Heidi to set up a consultation at my home. She and Joan spent time asking questions about my dogs individual personalities as well as their routines for their walks. I was immediately put at ease by the attention to detail and effort to fully understand my dogs. I am admittedly a control freak about my dogs and am very particular about their day to day. On my first day travelling I was relieved to find Joan on my nanny cam (hehehe) carefully attending to my pups. Each day her pictures and personalized comments gave me such peace of mind I would not hesitate to refer others to Heidi’s Hounds or to use them again in the future.

Courtney Waters, Cohasset, MA
IMG_3305

We love getting the notes; we love getting the pictures! I have never felt more at ease leaving my dog behind as I do with Heidi’s Hounds. She gets to stay in her own home with regular walks and attention. The peace of mind while we’re away is immeasurable, as is the joy of coming home to a happy, healthy puppy dog. Beyond the excellent care and attention that Stella clearly gets, the technology behind signing up, keeping track of Stella’s walks and payment processing makes it that much easier. I couldn’t ask for more.

Jennifer Gannett, Hingham, MA

This is going well and as a family we appreciate the commitment. Your service is enabling my aunt to keep her dog at her assisted living facility. Thank you!

Great people and great service! I love all the sitters – and Sammy does too! I am always excited to see the daily email!

Karym Murphy, Cohasset, MA

Heidi, thank you so much for everything! The meet and greet was a nice touch so I could actually see where Rosey would be while we were away. You always got back to me right away if I had any concerns. This was our first time leaving Rosey. We loved getting the feedback twice a day which allowed us to see how things were going. We were very happy with Jane’s service and look forward to using her again while we are away in April. Thank you for taking such good care of Rosey!

Kristen Haggerty, Hingham, MA

Thank you so much for your quick responses and attention to Tom’s needs! Cherie took good care of Tom and he was in good spirits when we returned. I really like the journal updates that allow me to stay updated on exactly what is happening with my dog while I’m away!

Jennifer McGhee, Weymouth, MA
img_0861

We are very happy with the service and how much we could customize timing for walks and visits. Brogan seemed very happy when we got home as well which is always nicer than the stressed dog we usually get back after being boarded! I think he really likes staying in his home! Thank you so much for helping us out!!

Allison Skidmore, Hingham, MA

I’m very happy with the service received last week from Heidi’s Hounds. Traveling away from my less than 6 month old puppy can be nerve wracking as puppy behavior is not always predictable (understatement!)…but they did such a great job! Getting an update post-walk with photos and details of the visit (while across the country!) made me feel so much better knowing he was getting great care. Online scheduling and payment was perfect for me as it was one less thing to have to manage offline 🙂 Highly recommend!!

Sarah Proehm, Hingham, MA

I wanted to thank you as it was such a relief to know that Maggie and Maisie were so well cared for during my extra-long day last Thursday. Just like leaving my kids for the first time it was nice knowing that my “girls” were so well cared for. I am thrilled that this worked out so well. Looking forward to having you continue to work with us!

Robin Moyer, Hingham, MA

Heidi, I have to send you another testimonial! I am soooo glad that I found you and the wonderful people who work for you! It has made my life so much easier and less stressful when I travel to know that my kitty and my home are in your team’s very capable hands. Aurora looks great and is doing really well! Thank you so much!!

My husband and I could not be happier with your service! It offered so much comfort to us while being so far away from home! I loved the emails and the comments about giving Charlie love and treats! We will use Heidi’s Hounds again!

We were thrilled with Joan’s detailed (and hilarious) follow up notes from her visits with Sasha! We are 110% satisfied and will be recommending Heidi’s Hounds to our friends and neighbors! We were so happy with the service, the ease of scheduling, the website, the follow-up emails…and the list goes on! Heidi’s Hounds provided excellent service!

Karen Reale, Hingham, MA

I loved that you came right out to my house to meet me for a Complimentary Meet and Greet. Joan was great with the dogs and we really appreciated how patient she was with Baloo! We know he can be a handful! Joan followed all our instructions and communicated with us after each visit. So Reliable!

Brian and Jean Kilduff, Norwell, MA

Sophie had a wonderful time with Jane, and I was so pleased with Jane’s care and enthusiasm! I loved the twice daily updates (along with the photos) as they gave me peace of mind since I was so far away. Since Sophie is an older girl who needs medication, I am only comfortable leaving her in a calm environment where I know she is getting personalized care. I will absolutely use your service again! Jane was wonderful and your attention to detail is thorough and professional. I really can’t think of any way to improve your service!

Jill Nilsen, Hingham, MA

Heidi, I am so thrilled that I discovered your pet sitting service this past summer! As I think you are aware, I’ve been having problems finding reliable pet care when I travel and the worst part of traveling was wondering if I could find someone to watch my 15 year old Calico cat who needs extra care. One of the best things about Heidi’s Hounds is that they have a team of pet care specialists so they are always able to accommodate my travel plans which completely takes the worry out of traveling for me. It’s such a relief! The most reassuring and best part when I am away from home is that I know my cat is well cared for and Heidi and her team have been very accommodating with any of my special requests. I love the twice a day journal and pictures that are posted after every visit. It’s been a wonderful experience!

Becky Silver, Hingham, MA

We were just moving to Hingham and leaving on vacation within days. I was referred to Heidi’s Hounds to care for our bunny, Pat. They were fantastic! We enjoyed having the cute notes from the caregiver arrive everyday. When we returned home, we found his cage in pristine condition. One improvement to our peace of mind was that we could see the bunny everyday, with the pictures that were attached to the update. We will definitely use and recommend Heidi’s Hounds for our pet care needs in the future.

I guess I’ll start at the beginning when we met Heidi. My husband and I were so wrapped up in our move to Hingham – we forgot that we would be out a dog walker and needed one ASAP. Heidi had come recommended from multiple people on a local community board and reached out to me directly. From her website and initial online reviews we liked what we saw and scheduled a “meet & greet” over the weekend with very short notice which Heidi was nice enough to accommodate. We have two small dachshunds (aka big egos who have a lot to say) and one is a rescue, Illy, who has a number of trust issues after living on the street. Let’s say it would take a real dog lover to even want to put in the time with her. Heidi walked right into our messy partially unpacked house and sat right down on the floor getting to know our dogs. I was sold! She explained how her team works and the background checks they’re put through. That really set us at ease. It can be nerve wracking to leave a key to your house with a stranger! It’s been a few weeks now and we have LOVED our experience so far. Our dogs needed some extra time getting used to their new home and walker and Heidi and her team were really accommodating. There were multiple calls back and forth that first weeks. Heidi again put us at ease and assured us she was not giving up on us and really worked to find ways to make scheduling and care for our pups work for everyone! I also must mention her online portal is so easy to navigate and manage. It was a quick set-up on our end and a couple clicks and we were in business! We also love our daily reports we receive. It gives us an update on their “business”, whether they were given fresh water, treats, etc and always includes a picture or two of our pups during their outing. It’s pretty much a highlight of my day when I get the alert in my inbox! If you are looking for a trustworthy, pet loving, easy to work with pet walker – I would not hesitate to recommend Heidi and her team! She ticked all our boxes…and then some we didn’t even know we were missing!

We recently hired Heidi’s Hounds to take care of my two dogs while we went on vacation for 5 days. I have never hired anyone to sit for my dogs before and I needed someone to stay at night and let them out during the day. I was nervous for them and worried how they would do having a stranger in our house (which we were a little nervous about also).

We met with Heidi and Cherie (who would be staying in our house) and we were impressed with both. They made us feel good about leaving them and that they would keep us posted on their care daily. Heidi and Cherie followed through on everything they said, we had updates and pictures every time they went for a walk and what was going on with them. We looked forward to these updates everyday and it made us feel at ease with leaving them.

Heidi is very accommodating to the needs of our dogs and she is always easy to get a hold of for changes in the schedule. I would hire her again and will recommend her highly.

Thank you to Cherie for taking such good care of my cats and fish! We arrived at home and we’re happy to see my cats and fish happy and in good health! The house was in great shape too! Thank you again for keeping me up to date at each visit. It was such a relief!

Thank you for taking such good care of Liberty this weekend. I loved hearing the funny updates and your true love of animals shines through. These pets are lucky to have you!

Heidi, we couldn’t be happier. We love Jersey beyond words, and it kills us when we can’t take him with us on trips. We also can’t bare the thought of him in a kennel. Your services are the perfect solution. The photos/updates are the best! They provide a great deal of comfort and trust.

Everything went great for the kitties last week! I could not have scripted it any better! I love the daily pet care journals and pictures as do my kids!

I can’t say enough good things about the care our dog(s) “Otter” and “Bear” have received from Heidi at Heidi’s Hounds. We first found Heidi when we had our nervous dog “Bear” who was anxious around strangers, and would have a heart attack if we ever left him in a kennel. We were desperate to find someone who would knowledgeably, compassionately and confidently work with him and take him on overnights. Heidi was just that person. She met him several times, took him for walks, and finally, had a successful overnight. We felt so good leaving Bear in Heidi’s care, and it was such a relief to be able to go away again and not rely on relatives (or, not go away at all). When we sadly had to put Bear down, her compassion and generosity (donating to a local shelter in his name) went above and beyond duties. Its not only a business for her, but its obvious she enjoys connecting with the dogs. She has been so wonderful with our new dog Otter. We wouldn’t leave Otter with anyone else. He is high energy being a lab mix, and he is clearly happy, well exercised and well cared for when we pick him up. SO glad we found her, we can FINALLY go away again and have peace of mind, thank you Heidi!

I have used Heidi’s Hounds for dog walking services and feeding while my kids and I were away but my husband was home in the evening. I was so impressed with her and her professionalism when meeting her for the first time. Also, the app she uses to book is very detail oriented but very easy to use. While I was away, I received an email with a picture of my precious boy after each walk, which I loved. Heidi’s love for dogs is so clear from the way she interacts with dogs. I felt totally comfortable leaving for a few days knowing Heidi was looking after Wilson. I got Wilson before I had my twins so he is like my first born! I am very particular who walks and takes care of him. I am so happy a friend of mine recommended Heidi’s Hounds to me.

We are so pleased to have found Heidi’s Hounds for our two lab retreivers. We started out with an introductory meeting, followed by a walk with our dogs.This was a great opportunity to get to point out things in our neighborhood and share some background on our dogs. We love the service we receive with Heidi’s Hounds. The daily new pet care journal is a great tool for us. We can see when they were walked, where, and who did or didn’t do their business. Payment is just as easy as Heidi’s Hounds creates an invoice every week. We are very satisfied with the service we receive at Heidi’s Hounds. It is so nice knowing they are taken care of while we are away!

Chance Testimonial Pic

Heidi’s Hounds is the perfect dog care solution for my sweet, senior, slightly neurotic pound puppy.  Chance has only been in kennel-free boarding whenever we needed overnight care.  At our prior home in Seattle, Chance had the perfect dog care setup with a provider who had five fenced acres and allowed Chance to sleep on her bed.  Touring local kennels after our move to Hingham in 2015, I knew the setups would just not work for my baby.  Enter Heidi’s Hounds!  After meeting with Heidi (who kindly came to my home not long after I had knee surgery) I knew I had found the perfect solution.  In-home care with only 2 dog boarders at a time; near my home, pick-up and drop-off available and most of all, Heidi!  An experienced dog Mom, Heidi is savvy, concerned and reliable.  On a recent 10 day visit, Chance had a minor medical situation.  Heidi was in close contact with me over several days and then eventually took him to our vet, when the situation did not resolve on its own.  All better by the time I picked him up!  I would encourage any dog Moms and Dads to trust Heidi with their precious pup!

Knox-Home

I cannot say enough great things about Heidi’s Hounds! Before Heidi, we had a terrible experience with another dog walking service, some days they did not come, other days they were only here for less than 5 minutes! We were working long days and relying on friends and family to stop in and see our new adopted dog. Heidi started immediately for us, which helped out SO much! She was very detailed with information regarding our needs, and our dog Knox took to Heidi right away! I am so comfortable leaving for the day knowing Heidi or one of her staff will be over. They always come within the time requested and stay for the full time. The online system is so easy to use and schedule specific days and times. We get a detailed note about how Knox is doing, the time someone arrives and leaves, pictures, and the piece of mind knowing Knox is well taken care of. Knox looks forward to seeing Heidi, and I am so glad we found her! I would recommend Heidi to everyone, if you love your pets and want someone to love them like they are their own, you can depend on Heidi’s Hounds!

Thank you again for taking such wonderful care of Annie and Reilly. Being away from them is hard for us but we felt much better knowing they were in such good hands!

I just wanted to give a special thanks to Heidi Zazza of Heidi’s Hounds for making our first time away from our Labrador puppy, Chatham, the easiest and most comfortable process. I dropped Chatham at Heidi’s home Friday morning and she delivered him to me this afternoon. Heidi was referred by a friend and not only has a great reputation for caring for dogs but also the experience. Heidi took Chatham for walks, had play time with other puppies and took the time to send me pictures and updates on how he was doing several times each day. If you know the dates you will be away, I recommend you contact Heidi sooner than later. You won’t be sorry.

Heidi has an amazing animal presence. She has been an equestrian since a child and a lifetime lover of dogs. Specifically, she helped me introduce a dog that I inherited to my two dogs at home. She saw something in his personality before I did and she gave me the confidence that I needed to make the introduction and subsequent successful integration into my home. Also, during her schooling for her graduate degree in animal studies she had to choose a dog in a shelter to spend time with …. She chose a dog in the shelter where I worked that many of my own volunteers couldn’t get close to… In no time flat her calm energy had given this dog just what she needed to relax and enjoy the visit.

  • Just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of Riley and Annie for my sister in law. She called me to say how wonderful you were and how happy she was to have found you! For me, you have saved me from the responsibility of being a great sister in law and offering to take care of the dogs when they go away.
