“Lindsay’s book is the best resource out there for anyone aspiring to become a professional dog runner, dog walker, and/or pet sitter. She details in a very readable fashion each step she took to turn her passion for dogs into a sustainable business that allowed her to quit her day job. Lindsay’s story is extremely inspiring to anybody stuck in a cubicle farm who dreams of turning their hobby into a functioning business that can pay the bills (and then some!) Her expertise is on full display as she explains the best marketing strategies, customer satisfaction techniques, and big-picture information that you’ll need to get your own dog walking/running or pet sitting business off the ground.”
Highly, highly recommended.”

“Lindsay, your e-book was a wonderful resource for me! It helped me feel confident and motivated to get my business off the ground. I loved how it was written in a very easy to understand and ‘to the point’ style. The information presented in your book was very useful without being overwhelming. I was able to apply it right away. It’s really easy to get bogged down in all the steps you could be taking starting this kind of business, but Lindsay’s book kept me focused on the essential steps to take just to get my company started. I couldn’t be more pleased … I highly recommend it!”

Now, with over 30 dogs in my program, I’m looking to bring on help. Lindsay’s advice is golden, because it comes through real experience. I’m grateful for Lindsay, and am fortunate that I came across Run That Mutt!”

Reviews on my consulting service:
“Lindsay’s dog walking starter kit was easily the most affirming and inspiring part of quitting my job to start a dog walking business. Not only does she prove it’s feasible, she also makes you excited to get started now! Lindsay covers all the bases you’ll need to know. And, if you think of something she didn’t cover, the hour-long phone conversation that’s included will get your questions answered. I’ve gone back to her e-book for random questions that have arisen, which I know she covered. Even just for moments of reassurance, her dog walking starter kit is invaluable. I started my dog walking business, officially, in March, 2012. Now, in July, 2012, I have two full time clients two days a week (I work Mondays and Fridays), and I feel like my business is truly going to succeed, with more business in the works. This dream would never have been possible without Lindsay’s knowledge and guidance. If this is really what you want to do, it’s more than worth the investment. I would recommend her starter kit to anyone interested in started a dog walking business in a heartbeat. Good luck!”
Sarah Ladwig, Paws & Go (Marin County)
“I have for a long time enjoyed Lindsay’s blog That Mutt but was thrilled to discover her ebook on starting a dog walking business. It felt right kismet to discover it when I did because I’m newly starting my own dog walking business. The book was easy to read and I devoured it. The advice Lindsay gives throughout the book is perfect and it’s full of gems of wisdom that a newbie might not think of. I then signed up for Lindsay’s phone consulting to discuss a couple of my biggest challenges in starting my business. I was able to ask every question I had on my mind and Lindsay’s answers were clear and encouraging. She gave me several action points that I couldn’t wait to move on right away, and I’m so glad I did! The call was wonderful because Lindsay is such an amazing person. She not only answered all of my questions based on her vast experience but she gave me continuous encouragement that inspired me to keep going and pushing through the challenges. Buying Lindsay’s book and talking with her were two of the best investments I could have made in starting my business. Thank you Lindsay!”
