Maria did a great job with Boz, he's older and needs attention. When I returned home he was calm and it was obvious that she spent time with him. Thanks and look forward to having you check in on him again!

Maria is a responsible and dedicated animal lover. Our dog adores her, and she spent more time with him than she was obligated to do. Would gladly rely on her again.

Hi Folks, My name is Sigrid L., pet owner, gallery owner and friend of Maria. We became friends because of our dogs and Maria has shown herself to be honest, reliable and a true animal lover. She has watched my dog Beso numerous times and Beso just loves to see her coming! I don't think you could find a better pet sitter or walker than Maria. Sigrid

Compassionate Doggie Caretaker

Currently raising a 11 month old heeler-shepherd mix and loving it! I work as a potter, pottery instructor, and sculptor at LUX Center for the Arts. I have a felexible daytime schedule for dog care and don't mind house sitting to care for a dog in it's home turf where it's most comfortable.
Before a house sitting job I would like to meet and talk. Meeting the dog is important too to build trust.
