Our dog had a great time with Marie and her family and also he had great time playing with Marie's shih tzu. Marie was very through with my questions while dropping him off, and she took enough time to make him feel comfortable before I leave. She sent regular pictures and updates about how our dog is doing, which was wonderful to know that he is great time. We will definitely book with her again ...
Marie and her daughters were awesome with our two little ones! We so appreciated their good care and attentiveness and it allowed us a nice time away.
Marie is wonderful and truly loves dogs. She was so caring and loving towards my dog and made sure to keep me updated so I was totally at ease. Izzy was very happy and really felt at home. I'm very particular about leaving my dog with others, which is why I'm so happy to have found Marie. I will definitely book with her the next time we need a sitter.
Detailed pet care
I come from a family that always had multiple dogs (99% of the time they were ShihTzu mixes). I believe that they have different temperaments and deserve all the love, care and attention- no matter how crazy they get (ex. puppy bites from those sharp teeth, doors scratched beyond repair..)
I know it is hard to be away from your pet so I'm able to give you updates (photos, videos , text messages on activities/discoveries) ...
What Marie would like to know about your dog
On breed preferences, shih-tzu and lhasa apso breeds have a special place in my heart, soul, bed and lifestyle.
Some family members have allergies and I therefore keep everything clean (vacuum and mop are w/in easy reach). Harsh cleaners and sprays are not used at home for the safety of all living things/humans/animals. Two-legged and four-legged creatures need to have clean feet in certain areas of the house. So expect that your puppy will have their paws wiped after each walk.
Please bring your vaccination records during a meet and greet (when applicable). I'm flexible with drop-off times and would ask that you leave with me: the vaccination records, collar/harness, dog food, and favorite things (bowls, toys, blanket, treats, bed). I'm able to provide a pet bed, leash some squeaky toys and a welcome/farewell treat (upon your review). If your dog is crate-trained please drop that off too.
As soon as you know you will be picking up at a later time, message me and we can discuss an extension stay. I can manually pro-rate via the Rover feature.
