It is clear when one meets her that Marian is an animal lover through and through. She took fantastic care of our cat, Nacho, and he was clearly happy and well-loved in our absence. Thank you so much, Marian!

Happy to take your pup hiking!

Life is better with dogs in it. I have had dogs all my life, and I feel enriched because of them. I am a pet sitter because I enjoy helping other people and caring for animals. I enjoy meeting new dogs and learning about their personalities. Dogs are so loyal and loving, and every dog is special in its own way!

I have had dogs all my life. I currently have one dog, Jasmine, and ...

What Marian would like to know about your dog

I provide excellent customer service to my four legged and two legged clients by getting to know all about them. I start by scheduling a meet and greet in order to get a sense of you and your pet, and make sure you are both comfortable with me. I like to ask lots of questions about schedules, feeding, activities, toys and habits to make sure I understand their specific needs and preferences. I ensure that I have your contact information in case a question arises, and make sure that I answer any questions you have for me. Owners can always contact me if they forget to mention something in the meet and greet, or if they think of a question they forgot to ask earlier. I follow all instructions given to me, so that your pup has the best possible experience.

My dog Jasmine gets along with most dogs, but she’ll need to meet your pup first to make sure there are no issues. She is a large dog and 4 years old — she has a lot of energy and enjoys a good romp. Sometimes she can come on a little too strong and intimidate a shy or less confident dog. If both pets enjoy the meet and greet then I would very much enjoy bringing her along to play with other pets.

When Marian watches your pet

I have a very flexible schedule so I’ll ask in advance what your pup likes to do and make sure I gave her the time and attention she deserves. I'm sure she will miss her owner(s) dearly — I’ll ask about her favorite toys, games and activities to ensure that she got plenty of interaction doing what she loves most. I am available most days with short notice, and am able to change my schedule to accommodate your pup’s needs. I am a homebody most of the time, but I also enjoy hiking, and I volunteer on a horse farm — I really love spending my time with animals.

My dog, Jasmine, is versatile and up for almost anything. I like to see dogs frolicking and romping about — I enjoy the free spirited and informal play. I used to have a Beagle who was more reserved and fit more comfortably on my lap. Dog sitting with Rover allows me to spend time with all different types of dogs — each one has something special to offer.
