Rocco’s stay with Maria was the best! Maria takes care of your pet as if it was her very own! She sent messages and updates on how he was doing, as well as pictures! It was great knowing our fur baby was in such good hands! I wouldn’t hesitate having her take care of Rocco again. Thanks Maria for making his stay with you so comfortable!

Maria boarded and took good care of Lexington, our standard poodle. Maria gave him breakfast and dinner and took him for a walk every day, during which Lexington got plenty of exercise and socialized with a number of people. She played with him and both enjoyed each other's company. When we picked up Lexington he was very fit and all the better for staying with Maria.

Maria is a wonderful dog sitter. She provided honest updates while we were away and helped our dog get comfortable in an unfamiliar home. We fully recommend using her for any pet sitting needs!

True Love - My husband is a vet.

Since my husband is a veterinarian and I'm characterized as being a lover of animals your dog will be in very good hands while you are away. Dog care is what I enjoy to do, I don't have my own dogs because your pet will be my baby during the time that he or she is with me.

I've had my own dogs so I know that you need to find a responsible and loving ...

What Maria would like to know about your dog

Since having your pup feel at ease is of utmost concern to me and my family, we would like to know if your pooch is comfortable around other dogs and a cat. Also it would be good to know how your pup reacts to children. Our goal is for your dog to have the most stress free visit.

When Maria watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I know the importance of maintaining their activity, so I walk with the pets (unless told otherwise) every morning/evening to the park and the golf course to play and develop a good bond with them. Both of these sites are close to my house.
I will go on long walks around my lovely neighborhood, stretching our legs and meeting several friendly fur-neighbors along the way. I am sure we will have tail-wagging canine play dates lined up for the rest of the week!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog is welcome to sleep wherever he feels most comfortable. I do not, however, allow fur-babies to sleep in bed with me. Please feel free to bring your dog's favorite pillow, blanket, or dog bed from home.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Since I am home full time, your dog will have my undivided attention, given the love and affection he deserves day and night. While you are gone you can be sure to rest easy knowing that your canine pal is being very well taken care of and his every need will be met. His every wish will be my command, whether he needs a good scratching behind the ears or wants to go for a long walk. The best part? Belly rubs on demand!
