Excellent, professional approach to looking after the furballs including one 17 year old girl who required extra attention

The Au Paw

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile!

I have years of experience as a kennel technician, rescue volunteer, adoption coordinator, and pet-sitter, so I am more than comfortable with all breeds and sizes! Credentials-wise, I have a VSA (Veterinary Support Assistant) certificate, a Pet First Aid & CPR certificate, membership with Pet Sitters International, and additional insurance and bonding coverage provided by Pet Sitters Associates (on top of Rover's).

What Mara would like to know about your dog

I accept all breeds and I am comfortable handling special needs cases, whether they relate to anxiety-, age-, or medical condition-related issues.

I'm familiar with the principles of positive reinforcement training, so if you want me to supplement our sessions with clicker ques and treats, just let me know. :)

During a meet and greet, I like to issue clients dog profile forms that they can fill out for my own reference. Questions include medical history, preferred vet, feeding schedule, and more.

When Mara watches your pet

Depending on your dog's personality, we may play with toys in the backyard, go for long walks around the neighborhood, or just snuggle on the couch.
