Maria is wonderful! She has watched our dachshund twice now and have already booked her for our holiday trip! Maria is patient and understanding, especially with our wiener dog. She sends photos and updates throughout the day. She has a beautiful home with a fenced in yard for all pups to love. :)

Wonderful dog sitter! Very communicative sending pictures and took great care of my senior sheltie. Would absolutely trust Maria with our dog again in the future. Maria and her husband are dog lovers and it shows!

About Maria

  • Verified Background Check

Loving Apex home-fenced large yard!

We are dog lovers and have two rescued Havanese, Cosmo and Tiki, who we love and care for as if they were our own children. Cosmo and Tiki are both very friendly and playful and would love the opportunity to have playmates. We have a secure large fenced yard where our guests can run around and burn some energy; we also live about a mile from downtown Apex, where we all go on long walks ...

What Maria would like to know about your dog

We would like to know about your pet's feeding and sleeping routine.
Also, is your dog crate-trained? While this is not a requirement, our preference would be to crate them at night and while away. Our dogs are not crated but we leave them in a restricted area behind a baby gate. We can do the same with your pet.

To ensure they feel at home as much as possible, please bring their food, food bowl, and bed/crate.

When Maria watches your pet

We have a large fenced yard that's always locked so this is a safe playground for our dogs and for those we board. In the summertime we may not go for walks because the concrete is too hot and can burn the pet's paws, we will go out to the backyard every 2-3 hours and play fetch, freesbie, or simply walk around to watch/chase the birds, squirrels, and rabbits who come to visit.

In the spring, fall, and winter, we go take walks to downtown Apex, which is just a mile away, where us humans stop for a cup of coffee while our four-legged friends get all kinds of attention from passers-bye.

I really enjoy giving my dogs a bath and I can include your pup in my dog-bathing routine if this is something that you would like. I will check with you first, though.
