Really helped me out a lot during a VERY busy time at work. Dropped in and made sure Marty was ok. Fed him, walked him and cleaned up after him. So great!

Maarja was fantastic! We came back to happy healthy animals and a neat and tidy house. Maarja was great for sending a quick text and a picture of our crew every day to let us know all was well. She was also very flexible about when we were to arrive home. We had total peace of mind while we were away without our pets, and have already booked Maarja for our next trip!

Special connection with dogs

I've had a special connection with dogs since I was a little girl. I grew up with a Russian Spaniel who was my best friend and companion throughout my childhood. After him we adopted a labrador retriever with whom I connected deeply as well. I loved taking long hikes in the forest with him and playing in the backyard. Besides that I have very good relationships with dogs of my friends and family members. People ...

What Maarja would like to know about your dog

I’m open to work with all kinds of breeds. However, before sitting I’d like to know the following things:
Does your dog have any special needs?
Does your dog have behaviour problems?
How does your dog get along with people and other animals? Has he/she shown any signs of aggression?
Is your dog trained / disciplined?
Does your dog have low- or high-energy? Does he/she require a lot of exercise?
Any additional information about the dog you think I should know :)

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
Injected Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience

When Maarja watches your pet

I’d love to go on either short or long walks, visit the dog park, let the dog swim if a pool is available and play with the dog. Everything depends on the needs of your dog.
