Mariana is educated by Dog Whisperer Big Chuck McBride from Detroit Michigan who has guided and trained her in animal behavior and dog obedience for over 5 years. Dog Whisperer Big Chuck McBride is the founder and owner of Waterford, Michigan Dog Psychological Center (DPC). About Mariana's dog behavior teacher, Dog Whisperer Big Chuck McBride: A professional dog whisperer; he talks to dogs. Dog whispering builds trust and respect between human and dog. A whispered dog is obedient because the human pack leader asked the dog to be, and the dog trusts and respects its human pack leader. Dog whispering is to understand dog psychology and language. This concept allows a human pack leader to awaken a dog’s instinct to follow, creating good dog behavior. Dogs are not human; they are animal first, canine second, breed third. Mariana provides a higher level of understanding of your pet for you, which is transmitted to make your bond even stronger with your beloved pet(s). WELCOME PET PARENTS My name is Mariana and I am a full time Pet Sitter, Dog Walker, and Animal Caregiver in Baldwinsville, New York with over 20 years of experience with animal care, trained in pet body language and animal behavior. You may have heard of “horse whisperers,” the rare individuals that are able to understand the EMOTIONAL needs of horses. Over a lifetime of research and observation, I have learned to empathize with animals on an emotional level, read micro-expressions; thus I am able to work with your pet’s emotional requirements as well as the basic care of cleanliness, exercise, sociability, and the regularity of schedules. I have applied my research of animal communication to my work with dogs, cats and other animals of all temperaments and breeds. I provide Professional Pet Care Services for your animals in Upstate New York and will happily travel to your home to care for your pets, and stay with them while you are away. I also offer Animal Day Care for pets in my apartment, which is located in the heart of Baldwinsville, New York. I only take one client at a time for Boarding or House Sitting Pet Care Services. My home is clean, safe, secure, and smoke free with a beautiful park nearby, perfect for walking your dog(s), conveniently located behind my apartment. Depending on your pet’s needs, you can choose to book me for a variety of services including: House Sitting, Drop-In visits (30 minutes), Dog Walking (30 minutes), Care for Pets with Special Needs, Doggie Day Care in your home while you are away at work, and Extended Pet Care Stays when you are visiting family and friends, planning a short or long vacation. Choose the Pet Care Service that makes you and your pets most comfortable. I love big dogs, small dogs, kitty cats, exotic pets, and look forward to meeting your beloved animals. I also have 8 years of experience assisting pet owners by providing follow up care for dogs and cats who had medical procedures. I have cared for many dogs post surgery. My experiences include: assisting pet owners with animal wound care, injury care, diabetic pet care, subcutaneous injections for a cat, administering proper doses of prescribed medication to one or more pets during a booked stay, aiding animals with physical disabilities, caring for dogs and cats with skin conditions (hot spots) and allergies, caring for animals who are blind and deaf, helping people rehabilitate dogs with special needs by focusing on dog behavior including separation anxiety, insecurity, fear of people or other animals, kindly and gently reversing dog dominance and early and late stages of behavioral concerns. I also teach people how to help their dogs stop chewing on shoes, personal belongings and other household items. I offer dog feeding lessons to reteach dogs who are very protective of their food, or who try eating food too quickly. I also guide owners and their dogs to have a great walking experience by providing dog walking lessons. This helps prevent tugging, pulling, running away, prey drive, and chewing on leashes during a walk. I offer potty training lessons for dogs and cats. I have experience working with Wildlife Rehabilitators, learning from them how to properly care for rescued wild animals, helping them care for the animals they are rehabilitating. PACK LEADERSHIP LESSONS & ANIMAL BEHAVIOR REHABILITATION Pack leadership lessons are available for pet owners. I offer this as an additional service outside of your bookings. You can hire me to work with your dogs to teach them excellent dog behavior. Pet owners also taught how to become pack leaders. I will demonstrate how to develop positive pack leadership skills. I have a very strong understanding of dog behavior and dog communication and love teaching and helping people rehabilitate, train, understand, and communicate well with their dogs. I love animals with all my heart and am very comfortable caring for animals of all types and sizes. I am proud to dedicate my life to providing your animals with love and genuine care. DAY CARE STAYS & OVERNIGHT STAYS I provide day care and overnight care for your pets. The rate for day care and overnight care is always fixed per calendar date and increases or decreases based on how many pets you have that I am fully responsible for taking care of during your booking. The rate may increase for dogs who have high dominant or aggressive/reactive behaviors because I may be required to train the dog during the booking to provide safety for myself and the dog. Dog behavior training fees apply when dog behavior training is needed during the booking. During our stay together I make sure your pets have fresh food and water every day. I love to play with them outside, and make sure they get plenty of healthy exercise. I teach them new tricks and reward them with praise and treats, take your dogs for a walk per your request or a healthy run (depending on your dog’s needs). I clean and maintain your pets and your home. I also provide them with comfort during thunder storms, loud noises and fireworks. I can also bring in your mail and take out the garbage, water your plants and maintain your home while you are away to insure that I leave your home even cleaner than I found it, upon your request. I work hard to keep your pets happy, healthy and safe and keep your home in great condition. I LOVE spending quality time with all your pets and look forward to meeting them and becoming their best friend for a lifetime. DOG BOARDING, HOUSE SITTING & DOGGIE DAY CARE SUPPLIES POLICY Pet owners are required to provide all the supplies your pet(s) need for the entire duration of a booked stay. It's very important that you provide enough food & pet supplies for your pets to last the entire booked stay to ensure your pets have what they need. I recommend to bring more than enough food and pet supplies in case your flight or your trip gets delayed. Pet sitters do no pay out of pocket to cover food, purchase pet care or cleaning supplies. It's every pet owners responsibility of to provide everything your pet(s) need during a booked stay. All supplies need to be ready and arrive with your pets at the start of each booking. COMBINING PET CARE SERVICES Pet care services like “House Sitting” and “Dog Walking” and “Drop-In Visits” cannot be combined and the services are treated as separate services. Please select the correct pet care service you are needing when you book your service. If you choose for me to stay at your home with your pets and take them out in the yard please select the “House Sitting Service.” If you are looking for a dog walker please select the “Dog Walking Service,” and if you need a drop-in visit please select the “Drop-In Visit Service.” Walking your dog(s) and dropping in for 30 minutes are separate services that I am happy to provide for your pets. An additional service fee does apply for combining two services, as for example: House Sitting & Dog Walking. PETS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS Pets depend on us for assistance & love and care. I take care of animals who have special needs. I help animals who need assistance with mobility or going potty. I also have experience administering oral or injected medication, and helping animals who have medical conditions and complications that require special care. I am highly committed to caring for your pets and will provide them with love, attention, excellent care and commitment in attending to all of their needs. CARING FOR MORE THAN ONE PET & UNDERSTANDING HOW THE RATE WORKS I am very happy to care for all your pets. When you book my Pet Care Services on Rover.com the initial House Sitting rate to care for your first pet in your home is $95 per calendar date. House Sitting additional pets is $30 for each additional pet per calendar date. The Boarding rate to care for your first dog in my apartment is $95 per calendar date. Boarding additional pets from the same household is $30 for each additional pet per calendar date. Note: I only take one client at a time for House Sitting, Boarding and Doggie Day Care. I do not own any pets of my own and I don't have children. Doggie Day Care is $75 for the day and $45 more for each additional dog. Doggie Day Care is 8 hours of Pet Care Service, there is an additional $25 fee for Doggie Day care that goes over 8 hour. Doggie Day Care does not include overnight stays. Overnight stays can be booked under House Sitting or Boarding Pet Care Services. I also offer a discount package 🎁 for Pet Parents who have more than 3 pets to help you save money on the booking price to care for more than 3 pets for your booking. I always take care of your pets during the day and overnight however please keep in mind that the rate is fixed per calendar date NOT per night. For example; If I am staying in your home, caring for your pet(s) for 1 calendar date or for an extended period of time, I am fully responsible for the well being of all the pets living in your home. The House Sitting rate for 1 pet is $95 per calendar date, 2 pets is $125 per calendar date. Basically each additional pet adds $30.00 to your calendar date booking, and your rate is always fixed per calendar date.

MEET & GREETS & TRAVEL EXPENSES When meeting your pets for the first time, I become very excited to see your relationship with your pet(s). I offer the option to meet your pets in your home, in my home or a location of your choice before booking an official pet stay. The Meet & Greet helps me learn more about your amazing pets, and the Meet & Greet is an excellent opportunity for me to visit your pets for the first time and start building a bond with them in their natural environment - in the comfort of their own home. Your first Meet & Greet is complimentary as long as I am traveling no more than 20 miles round trip to your home and back to my home. Additional visits to your home or residence can be booked as a Drop-In visit. Keys can be dropped off at my residence in Baldwinsville, NY with no extra travel fees; travel fees only apply if I travel to your residence to pick up or drop off your keys. House Sitting, Drop-In Visits, Dog Walking, Doggie Day Care in your home, and Extended Stays outside Baldwinsville, NY are an additional fee of 65.5 cents per mile, to cover the cost of travel expenses. TRAVEL RATES FOR HOUSE SITTING BOOKINGS, DOG WALKS & PET DROP IN VISITS I am happy to travel to your home to care for your pets. My current travel radius is set to 100 miles, starting from my home in Baldwinsville, NY and traveling to your residence. I love to travel, and am willing to travel longer distances beyond 100 miles to care for all your pets. Travel is 65.5 cents per mile round trip from my home, or from where I am last booked, to your home. If your home is located outside of Baldwinsville, NY or Syracuse, NY the travel rate does increase. Travel costs are not profit-based, they help me cover travel expenses when traveling to and from your residence. PET SAFETY & THE SAFETY OF YOUR HOME The safety of your Pets is my #1 priority. I recommend listing all the Pets living in your home on your Rover profile individually to make sure that all your Pets are covered under Rover's Premium Insurance. I take Pet Safety very seriously and will follow your guidelines to insure your pets are safe, secure, healthy and receive the best care during our stay together. I will also make good recommendations to help make sure that your pets are safe while you are away. I will ask you to provide a list of emergency contacts for your pets and vet information to make sure that your pets have professional medical care. I will take your pet(s) to your preferred vet if I notice any signs of illness or concern. HOME & TRAVEL SERVICES I do not provide travel services or additional home cleaning services during a pet care booking. However I will always leave your home in the same condition or even better condition than I found it. I am happy to take out the garbage, water your plants and bring in your mail at no extra fee. Travel services like taking clients to the airport when your booking starts or ends, picking up groceries for you, or doing your laundry are not included in my Pet Care Services. I highly recommend always being prepated and leaving plenty of pet food and needed supplies during a booking. If your pet(s) run out of food or supplies during a booking, an additional service fee for the purchase of food & for my travel will be sent to you when I go out to purchase the needed food and pet care products. The payment for the additional services is due before the booking ends. PETS DIAGNOSED WITH TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCES, FEAR & ANXIETY I understand that many animals are rescues while other animals come form animal shelters, puppy mills, poor living conditions and some pets may have experienced traumatic circumstances. I am happy to work with animals from all walks of life to help them feel safe, loved, secure, and give them the love and care they need and deserve to feel happy, safe and comfortable in my care. ANIMAL BEHAVIOR - DOMINANCE, GROWLING, AGGRESSION & BITING Working with an animal that has behavioral concerns takes time, dedication, patience and long hours of consistent correction and follow through. Correction is also known as “direction” to a dog. By providing your dog with direction, I help improve the unwanted behavior; dogs expect us "humans" and their "Pack Leaders" to give them direction. When you give a dog direction in the dog’s language, you are telling your dog, "I love you." My Pet Care rates increase if I am working with a dog or other pet that requires long hours of dependable work (direction) and follow through to correct behavior. The rate will increase on a case- by-case basis. As a general rule, the Pet Care rate will double for dogs with manageable behavior concerns. If your pet(s) have serious behavioral concerns, I recommend hiring a Professional Animal and Dog Behaviorist like Dog Whisperer Big Chuck McBride to help you guide and direct your dog(s) and train your pet(s) to follow the Pack Leader(s) - you are your dogs Pack Leader(s). I want to ensure that your pet(s) have the proper & professional training it needs. I highly recommend contacting Dog Whisperer Big Chuck McBride if you have an unmanageable or very aggressive dog behavior concern. It is always recommended to seek the help of a behaviorist prior to hiring any Pet Sitter due to liability and insurance concerns. However, I do have experience working with dogs that have very dominant behavior, insecurity, separation anxiety, fear, frustration, growling & barking at their handler or other people and animals, including: issues with snarling, mock biting, and even mild symptoms of aggression. SAME DAY BOOKINGS AND AVAILABILITY When requesting a booking to care for your pets please be sure to give me at least 24 hours of advanced notice for Dog Walks and Drop-In Visits. Please give me at least 48 hours notice for overnight stays. For weekend pet stays, or Extended Stays of 3 days or more, please give me 72 hours or more of advance notice as soon as you know the dates you are planning to book. I try my best to accommodate booking requests (including last minute requests) as long as I am available on the dates you request. I always do my best to help care for your pets, but I can't guarantee that I will be available if the booking request comes in on short notice or on the same day that you need me to care for your pets. I highly recommend booking in advance to reserve your dates. CANCELLATION POLICY A full refund will be provided if you cancel your booking 24 hours before the official booking starts. Refunds are not provided after the booking has completed or if you come back early from your vacation. I commit my time and schedule to make sure that my time is 100% dedicated to the care of your pets. A refund is not provided for cancelling early before the booked stay ends, or by asking for a refund during or after a booking has completed. My time is very valuable and I am happy to provide refunds only on a case-by-case basis. HOLIDAY CANCELLATION POLICY Pet sitters are in very high demand during the month of December and on most holidays. I do not provide refunds if a booked stay is cancelled during the month of December, or if a booked pet stay is cancelled that was part of a holiday. Before booking a holiday pet stay please be 100% sure that your trip/vacation is secured. Please have a back up plan just in case your ✈️ flight gets canceled for the location you plan on traveling to because there is a no refund policy for holiday cancelations. However I do make acceptions for cancelation that result from a legitimate medical emergency on a case by case basis. Emergencies are verified with documentation or a note from a medical provider 📝. ABOUT MARIANA’S PET CARE EXPERIENCE My love and affection for animals started as a child. I was living in a home with a variety of pets, and grew up on a farm. I took great care of the pets living in our home; they were my family, friends, companions, and playmates. I always made sure they were safe and secure, fed them, bathed and brushed them, walked our dog, nursed my pets back to health when they were sick, took them to the vet when they needed medical attention, and administered medication that was prescribed by the Veterinarian. In the last 16 years, I helped my family raise dogs, cats, birds (including an Amazonian parrot, parakeets and a cockatiel) bunnies, a hamster and fish. On the farm we took care of cows, pigs, roosters, chickens, ducks, bunnies, and honeybees. I also have experience maintaining horses including: feeding, grooming, horse shoe cleaning, putting a saddle and bridle on a horse, and horseback riding. Thank you for choosing Mariana's Pet Care Services! I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your sweet pets.

Mariana did an awesome job again! This is our 4th time using her service. Amber was so excited to Mariana when we arrived to drop her off. Mariana was excited to see amber too. We spent 1/2 hour at Mariana's reviewing amber's daily schedule of walks, food and medication. This gave amber time to relax and be comfortable. Amber always has a great time at Mariana's. They take a lot of walks and have a lot of playtime! Amber luvs to snuggle and Mariana took the time to snuggle and luv on her everyday! On our way home our flight was delayed 4 times. I texted Mariana and kept updating her on our changes! She told me not to worry about when we would arrive home. She would take care of amber until we could pick her up!! What a relief! Amber luvs to go to Mariana's and Mariana luvs to care for Amber! She truly luvs animals! I would recommend her to anyone!! She is an excellent sitter and a very caring person!
