Mara is an excellent sitter and the pups just love her. I fact I think they were disappointed it was me when I returned home. I do not think one could find a better care taker for your pets or home while you are away than Mara

Mara was a huge help and relief to me while I was traveling over the New Years holidays. She sent lots of pictures during the day, made regular contact, and was responsive to all my questions and requests. I came home to happy dogs and a tidy home. I will be using Mara again!

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.
