About Us

Rick & Kris HoffmanPeace of Mind Pet Boarding was started out of a desire to open our own business doing something we would love to do and offer a needed business in Dorchester County.

We are both lifelong residents of Dorchester County and we purchased our dream home at 6136 Suicide Bridge Road, outside of Secretary in June of 2007. Our property covers over 7 acres of wooded and open area. We have many trails through our woods and offer wooded trail excursions for the dogs in our care. Truth be told, we have as much fun as the dogs.

Rick graduated from North Dorchester High School in 1987 and also graduated from Salisbury State University. He is currently employed with Bruker Optics Inc. in their scientific instruments division. Kris graduated from Golden Shore Christian School in 1986. She received a cosmetology license in 1987 and was certified as an Ophthalmic technician in 1989. Kris has been employed since 1991 at Midshore Eye in Easton. She retired in June 2008 to run the boarding and grooming business. Kris has a lifetime of experience in taking care of pets. She will also be bringing her cosmetology talents to the business in full service grooming. Both owners are going to be active in the day to day operation of the facility. Our mantra is personalized care for the pets in our charge.


Pet Portraits are a great way to keep your loved ones with you always. We can do individual pictures of your pet or we can offer family portraits. We understand how much you will miss your furry family member while you are away and we will gladly email you a picture of your pet while you are away. Upon your return, we will frame a picture for you to take home.

We have a full service pet shoppe that offers collars, leads, beds, houses, and specialities. We are also an authorized dealer for Pro Plan Dog and Cat food.

We made a conscious decision to stay small so that we could offer your family member the attention that it deserves, be it a dog or a cat.
