Maddy was great! She took fantastic care of our pup over the holidays and made her feel right at home.

Maddy was awesome! She watched our pups for four days while we were out camping, out of cell range. We have a very large Anatolian with separation anxiety issues, and she was able to deal with him with no issues. Even when he found himself nose-to-tail with a skunk, she was super resourceful and worked to de-skunkify him, then made sure he didn't get any stink juice on the furniture. She also sent us pictures ...

Maddy is the best. And my pup Zelda loves her. We ran into Maddy at our neighborhood park and Zelda bolted across the field to give her licks and leaps and cuddles. It was quite heartwarming. Maddy walks Zelda for an hour at least three times a week. She is reliable and trustworthy and an all around awesome human. I am so thankful to have found her.

Help feed my dog addiction!

I got my first dog when I was just four years old, and I have been loving and caring for dogs ever since. I currently live in Oakland with Poppy (my 3 year old rescue beagle), June (a 2 year old standard poodle), and 2 lovely, equally dog-crazy housemates. I have been dog sitting and walking for about 6 years now, and have experience with special needs and elderly pets, and administering medications. I love ...

What Maddy would like to know about your dog

It is important to know if your dog is able to socialize with other dogs, and if so if they are ok with dogs of all sizes. I am also interested to know if they have any idiosyncrasies that might present themselves (my dog reverse sneezes and barks at people in hats) or behaviors to avoid around them. I think it is important to be consistent with the care and structure that you provide so it is great if you can share what commands/signals your dog knows and any rules that you have. I love dogs of all breeds, sizes, ages and backgrounds!

When Maddy watches your pet

I love taking dogs around Lake Merritt, for hikes in Joaquin Miller, to run around at Point Isabel or to the dog park for some socialization. I also am happy to hang out on the couch and cuddle!
