Maribel provided the best doggie care I could ask for. I was probably more nervous leaving Buddy than he was. I received regular texts and pictures which really helped me relax; knowing that he was enjoying himself. Maribel was very tentative, paid close attention to Buddy's needs and made sure he was comfortable which was especially important because he is an elder dog. I would recommend Maribel to anyone looking for a good doggie sitter ...

Maribel is simply remarkable. I had an early surgery and Maribel was so accommodating to accept him at 7 a.m. in the morning. I was so thankful.
I had the opportunity to meet with Maribel in her home before she sat with him. Her home is neat and clean and an obviously dog friendly environment. I'm sure he enjoyed his stay there...a comfortable family room with an adjacent spacious backyard.
It was obvious ...

Maribel is incredible! She did such a fantastic job w/ our 2 month old puppy. I needed her to care for him last minute and she totally accommodated our family. She is definitely experienced & is a true animal lover. I received multiple photos that put my heart at ease while I was away from. I plan to use her again. Thank you so much!

About Maribel's Home

When Maribel watches your pet

Depending on your dog's needs, your dog will enjoy either a neighborhood outing or a hike on one of the many beautiful trails in the East Bay Regional Park District. I am very careful about putting dogs together that are compatible based on personalities, size, age, behavior and play style. Positive experiences and reinforcement make better dogs!
My guests become part of the family and as such enjoy a cozy home life while their own people are away, with naps, play time, outings, practicing good manners using positive reinforcement, cuddles, and even watching TV and eating organic popcorn together!
