Maria is wonderful. This was our first experience with, and we could not be happier with the outcome. Dash loves her now, and thinks she’s part of the pack. We highly recommend Maria as a pet sitter and as a house sitter.

I absolutely LOVED caring for Dash! He has such a great personality. Thank you for booking with me.

Maria was amazing. She was so good with my girls. She watched my house and my girls for 9 days while I was on vacation. She kept me updated often and sent me a lot of pictures. Anybody’s fur babies would be lucky to have Maria care for them?

Thanks Laura! It was a pleasure caring for Penelope & Molly. Give them lots of treats and hugs for me.

Maria is FANTASTIC. Our dogs loved her and they were so happy when we arrived home from our trip.
She spent nights with them so they were not alone.
On top of taking care of our crew of 3 she made sure our hummingbird feeders were filled daily, fed our fish, vacuumed up the pup hair and picked up dog poo in our yard. Oh and grabbed our mail.
Above and Beyond her over night ...

I wish I could adopt 'em all!

I'm a traveling RN and Army Reserve RN who is currently working in Pleasanton, CA. I'm looking for a fun way to learn the area and feel that it would be enjoyable to do this while walking or dropping-in to care for your pups. While in CA, I'm staying in the Lake Chabot/Chabot Park area and am willing to travel a 15 mile radius*. At home (in KS) I'm the mom to a 9yr ...

What Maria would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs, but have a soft spot for large dogs and bully breeds. Things I like to know about your dogs so that I can provide great care are:

What types of play activities does your dog enjoy?
Are there any areas that I should not pet or attempt to touch on your dog (for example, my dog freaks out when you try to grab his feet)?
Are there any areas of your home or yard that are off-limits for your dog?
What is your dog's feeding schedule - and medication regimen if applicable?
Is your dog current on all vaccinations to include kennel cough?
Is your dog on flea & tick preventative?
Who is your veterinarian and/or emergency contact?

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

When Maria watches your pet

I can walk/jog on any well lit sidewalk in your neighborhood, or am willing to go to a park for some trails if that's what your pup likes. Also open to taking your dog to a dog park if there's one that you like that is local.
