Maria was great with our dog Charlie. We went on vacation for a week and Maria gave us daily updates. We had no concerns or worries at any point during our trip and Charlie loved her from the start! Positive experience overall. Maria is fabulous!

My Ginger and Cinnamon love Maria. She is punctual and reliable and regularly kept us updated with texts and pictures. She exceeded my expectations. Ginger can be quite a rambunctious puppy and Maria knew just how to handle her. My babies were well cared for. I will definitely be calling on her again.

Thank you Linda. Happy holidays to your gracious family, and paws up to the spice girls.

I have known Maria for 14yrs and I can not remember a time she was not involved with dogs. She has been a volunteer,Secretary, President and Director of Operations of Animal Rescue Friends of Idyllwild. Maria is a very
compassionate, reliable, and responsible person. She has dog sat for many years and always puts the client's pet first on her list of responsibilities, no matter what! I recommend Maria as one of the best ...

  • Verified Background Check

Alll paws welcome!

Our family has always had a dog or two. I, personally had a pack of three, which have all since gone to the rainbow bridge. I have been pet sitting for dogs and cats for 10 years. Several drop in and feed, walk or just play. Many overnights. I also was the Director of an animal rescue in Idyllwild, Ca. for 5 years, and previous to that, a board member and volunteer for 15 years.

What Maria would like to know about your dog

I would need to know his/her schedule for feeding, walking, potty breaks. Also any food allergies. Who is the vet in case of emergency. Does he/she get along with other animals/people. Any dog, large or small is fine.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Maria watches your pet

We will walk in your familiar neighborhood. Playing catch , frisbees, and even enjoying some basic skills as sit, and shake for a treat. These exercises are beneficial daily, especially for those that bore easily.
