One word: AMAZING! We used Mara for overnights to watch our 3 dogs. She sent pictures every day. Communication prior to, during, and after the stay were excellent. She is very professional, prompt, courteous. Honestly we were a little jealous because in the pictures it looked like with Mara here the dogs didn't even miss us!

Mara has been watching both my boys for around 8 months now. She is so kind to both my pups and they are so happy when I get home. The house is well taken care of and she sends me updates daily. She is amazing and you won't be disappointed with how well your babies will be taken care of.

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 coverage provided by Pet Sitters Associates (on top of Rover's). Because of all of my years of ...

What Mara would like to know about your dog

I have experience with extra-large breeds like King Shepherds and Great Danes (many with behavior quirks), so no dog intimidates me. If they do have certain training hangups or anxieties, please just let me know ahead of time so I can be prepared. 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.
