Dogs Over 1 Year Old
No Females in Heat
Maria and Steve were amazing as usual! Our pup, Jax, stayed with them for a week and had a fantastic time - which was evidenced by the amazing photos and updates we received on a regular basis. Would highly recommend Maria for anyone looking for temporary puppy parents in the Astoria area.
Maria did great watching our dog, Luna. It was for a very short overnight trip, and the first time Luna spent the night away from home. Maria gave a lot of updates on Luna's progress throughout the night and next morning, along with pictures of how she was acclimating to the new setting. She seemed happy and relaxed the next morning during pick-up and seemed like she enjoyed her stay.
We felt nervous about leaving our dog with any sitter but now feel at ease after the care Maria gave. Highly recommend and we look forward to having Emma stay with her again.
I work from home and dogs love me
I love dogs and they love me back. Every dog in my care gets a secure, loving, calm environment, with all owner's guidelines and boundaries respected throughout the stay. I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes. I love sending owners little notes about the cute things their pups did throughout the day. I believe there is no such thing as a non-photogenic dog.
I have never met a dog that I could not figure ...
What Maria would like to know about your dog
I have to meet every new dog and their humans before I accept a new booking - this way we will all be comfortable that we are a good match.
Beyond that, I need to know any medical or dietary requirements, any history of anxiety or aggression around certain situations (strangers, cars, other dogs, SQUIRRELS!), any behavioral issues you are currently working on, what the dog likes and dislikes, the normal activity level and schedule - you know, all the stuff you'd want me to know. If your pup has something they're working on, like pulling on walks or negative reactions towards certain things, that's ok! I just really need to know these things so I can provide the best care for your pup.
