Maria was very accommodating to our two pups on short notice and we were very grateful they had a safe place to stay together for the day. We received updates throughout the afternoon and the dogs looked like they got plenty of exercise.

Maria took excellent care of my dog! Maria took her on long walks and always left my dog with a treat....which made my dog very happy?. She sent great pictures of their time together. I highly recommend Maria.

I am Maria, and would love to have your dog as my house guest! Recently I have moved back to the US from a two-year stay in London, UK (sadly I did not pick up the accent ...

What Maria would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds equally. I believe that the breed of the dog does not determine the demeanor of the dog, but the environment it has been raised in.

Before sitting for dogs, I would like to know if they get along with cats. If they do not, I am able to make arrangements so our animals do not interact with each other. Other concerns are any medical issues and allergies.

When Maria watches your pet

We will go to one of the dog parks in Balboa Park, so we will make sure that your dogs have the time of their lives while they are here! I tired pup is a good pup.

In addition to dog parks, there will be plenty of hikes, walks, and even runs. I am a huge fan of Pup adventures to explore new areas of San Diego.
