Maria was wonderful. Very responsive; sent lots of pics; took the dogs to the park. Even washed the sheets and towels so I came home to a very clean condo! would def recommend!

  • Verified Background Check

Reliable Dog and Cat Lover

I love pets! And I'm not allowed to have them at my apartment, so taking care of your furry critter is as close as I can get right now.
I grew up with lots of pets- dogs, cats, hamsters, fish, a rabbit, and a rat! All of my pets have been rescues (yes, even the rat- I rescued her from a snake). When I visit my mom, I enjoy taking care of her two dogs ...

What Maria would like to know about your dog

I do not have breed preferences. I would rather not walk a large dog that pulls on their leash, for their safety and mine.

I generally would like to know their routine, their likes and dislikes, the commands they know, their veterinary contact information, and how they get along with other dogs (in case of dog parks).

When Maria watches your pet

I live near the lake, so I can take them there. There is also a field nearby where people take dogs. I can walk them around Streeterville, which is my neighborhood. And any little places you know about that are close by. If the dog is a good jogging partner, I can do that too! Please provide their favorite toys and I am happy to play with them. Treats too, if they have them!
