Marianne was easy to work with to set up a meet and greet with Lucky and was very caring and put Lucky's safety first because he is sometimes impossible to calm down. She was on time, sent lovely pictures of Lucky on his walks, and even brought my packages and trash cans in at times. She was easy to communicate with, and I will definitely be reaching out again when I have the need in ...

Marianne took care of our cats for 3 1/2 days and we couldn't have been happier with her care, communication, and commitment to them. When she came out for our "Meet and Greet", I knew she would take wonderful care of them! She followed through on in all of their feeding routines, clean-up, and was punctual. When she may have run a little bit late one time, she contacted me beforehand to let me ...

Safe & Reliable TLC for Furbabies!

I'm not quite retired and a mom of four grown kids. I have two grandchildren. My experience with caring for animals includes walking dogs for clients in the Northern VA area. I attended PetSmart's grooming academy over 12 years ago and worked as a groomer. I have two dogs; a sweet little MinPin Pom who is 14 years old, Miss Yippy and a highly energetic sweet German Shepherd/coonhound mix who is almost two years ...

What Marianne would like to know about your dog

For dogs needing walks, it is important to know how socialized your pet is to other dogs (if dog aggressive) and to people so that I may adjust the walk as needed. Does your pet have separation anxieties? This is good to know beforehand so that I can provide the best care in helping them be at ease while you are away and if I must be away for brief errands while pet sitting on extended stays, I want to be sure your dog is secure and relaxed until I return. For special needs pets, I have walked a couple of dogs who were blind and they required a little extra assistance and time in order to enjoy being able to get outdoors and go for a walk. Those are just a few things good to know before starting the visit or pet sitting and going on walks.

When Marianne watches your pet

My goal is to keep to your pet's regular routine schedule while you're away. With each walk, visit or stay your pet will have good daily exercise whether a vigorous walk for a younger dog or a nice leisurely stroll for an older senior there will be lot's of time for fresh air and enjoying the scenery. I have pets of my own and know how important it is for pets to enjoy indoor activities too with a variety of their favorite toys.
