DOG CARE THAT GIVES BACK

Because we can all use some good vibes

DOG SAFETY EDUCATION

FOR CHILDREN (AND THEIR PARENTS)

In an effort to reduce the rate of dog bites with children, The Mindful Mutt is developing a classroom program for local elementary school children to learn how to act and react when dogs are present. The class will be offered free-of-charge and will include an experience with a real therapy dog! Parents will also be provided with the information covered in the class!

FOSTER DOG RESOURCES

FOR LOCAL DOGS

The Mindful Mutt is providing space for Bullied Breeds Rescue to conduct meet and greets during our off-hours at no cost. Bullied Breeds Rescue is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that fosters local dogs from local shelters and rehomes them right here in New England. Additional events and other opportunities to come! For information on adoption or fostering, please visit their website: bulliedbreedsrescue.org

THERAPY DOG VOLUNTEERING

FOR NURSING HOME RESIDENTS

The Mindful Mutt will be volunteering at Presentation Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Brighton, MA.

TEDDY THE WHOODLE

"Deanna and The Mindful Mutt have known Teddy since he was a little puppy.  From the free consultation until the day we moved out of the neighborhood, Teddy looked forward to Deanna's energy and enthusiasm every day!  He made great friends on his walks, and we always knew he was in good hands because of Deanna’s dedication, trustworthiness and professionalism. We are very grateful for how she helped him grow from a tiny puppy to a happy, social adult dog. We highly recommend Deanna and The Mindful Mutt!"

JAX THE BRUSSELS GRIFFON MIX

"Jax freaks out in nub-wiggles every time he sees Deanna! He loves going with her on walks and I think the thing he loves the most is the attention and love she gives him! I have seen Deanna treat Jax like he is her own dog, and that means so much to me and why I will always have Deanna a part of Jax's life!"

"You can tell Deanna really cares about each dog she is looking after. Luna can’t wait for her next visit with Deanna, and I have peace of mind knowing Luna will be in good hands when I’m away."

AKIKO THE COCKER SPANIEL

"Deanna's love for animals shines through in every interaction she has! At the outset she was thorough in asking questions about care and preferences. During the stay she was in-tune to how my dog was doing and how to adjust the routine to make it even better. She even gave my dog a bath with oatmeal shampoo. Wow! And, great communication before and during the stay."

CHARLIE THE COCKER SPANIEL

"Like most pet owners, I'm very picky about who I let take care of my dog. Charlie is a ball of energy and has anxiety that can make him a lot to handle at times. But when I found Mindful Mutt a couple of years ago,  I could tell immediately that the owner Deanna would be great with Charlie. I was definitely right! Deanna treats her "clients" as her own pets and always gives Charlie the love and attention he needs. Moreover, Mindful Mutt is patient with Charlie and careful to make sure he is safe during walks and home visits. Charlie is always beyond excited to see Deanna and his doggy friends, which tells me he thinks Mindful Mutt is fantastic too. Above anything else, I have really appreciated the peace of mind I have knowing that when I'm not around, I can depend on Mindful Mutt to be there. If you want someone to care for your pets like you would, Mindful Mutt is the only choice!"

TEDDY THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER

"Deanna is amazing!! We have left our 2 year old golden retriever puppy, Teddy, with Deanna multiple times. She has taken amazing care of him and updated us regularly with photos. She keeps him active and takes him to parks (which he loves). This is the first time we've been truly comfortable leaving him with someone. Before this whenever we left Teddy at boarding he would come home seeming so sad. Teddy also loves her so much and is so happy with her and the other puppies. We trust her completely and highly recommend her. Don't think, book Deanna now!"

LITTLE SAMMY THE MUTT

"Deanna is the best!! Experienced, professional, and 100% passionate about dogs and caring for them. Sammy had the best time there, and I loved receiving so many updates. She kept him active all the time and he was so happy in every video and photo I received. Sammy came home happy, tired....and missing his playmates! He can't wait to visit again."
