Mara walked my fur babies for a few days and was great. She showed up when she said she would and the pups loved her. Thankyou Mara

Mara was willing to help me with a last minute drop in request when my other sister bailed on me. She was very flexible and even my shy boy came around to her. As a pet sitter myself, I highly recommend her.

What Mara & Jacob would like to know about your dog

I am comfortable with any breed, as long as they are used to be on a leash. It is important to me to know if there is something in particular that might frighten the dog especially if they are a rescue (e.g. men in hats, etc) as well as how they behave around other dogs or small children so I can plan our activities or situations accordingly. Additionally, if there is any sort of treat that they particularly like, or cannot have.

When Mara & Jacob watches your pet

I especially love taking the dogs I live with to the beach. I enjoy hiking and running if the dog is up for it as well. We can go on short or long walks around the neighborhood or to a park.
