Maria was great with Guinness even though he had some separation anxiety and was difficult during his stay. Really appreciated her patience!

Maria was super sweet to my boy Mojo. He was delighted meeting her and enjoyed the company of her dogs.

Pups, kittens and paws, Oh My!

I formerly worked at a cute little animal rescue center called Sugar Mutts in Bushwick Brooklyn. My job entailed walking dogs, bathing them, and cleaning up after them- but let's not forget the most important and exciting part of my job; playing with them! I truly believe that I have found my forever calling. I didn't think I'd fall in love with the job the way that I have. Everyday when I enter work I ...

What Maria would like to know about your dog

A few really important details that I must know include any medical history. Current Veterinarian information and any 24 hour emergency Veterinarian (If you have one.) Some other important information would be if your dog has any allergies to any food, materials, etc. Also please let me know any things that could potentially cause your dog to be upset, angry, anxious, sad and over excited or if your dog has separation anxiety. If your dog experiences any possessiveness (examples include food, toy, area and material possessiveness.) Another would be your dog's energy level. The most IMPORTANT you could possibly give me is whether or not your pet is friendly with other dogs. Disclaimer** I have two dogs of my own that are friendly and love all animals. If your pet does not. Separation into a different area of my home can be arranged.

When Maria watches your pet

Typical walks usually around my apartment complex which conveniently has a dog park. Activities include playing fetch with toys of all diversity or playing it's mine like some dogs prefer. If your dog is in need of losing energy I am an active person and will run and exercise your dog ( exercise helps overly active dogs stay more calm.)
