Mariel was the greatest dog and house sitter we have ever had! I am very particular about my dogs, and I could not have been more pleased with her stay. We got wonderfully thoughtful updates while we were gone, and she was so responsible with our home. When we came home, I could not stop commenting on how well she left everything. She truly thought of every detail! I could only hope Mariel had as ...

Mariel did an outstanding job of caring for our dog and cat while we were away for the week! She also house-sat for us and, with our permission, she brought her dog over to play with Dresden and they became best buds! She was great about giving Mabs attention too when the dogs were playing. Mariel sent daily picture and video updates, which really helped me since this was the first time we left our ...

Hi there! I am a UT Law student, so I am very responsible and I have a pretty set schedule. I would love to board your pet or house sit for you! Although school does keep me busy, I have a pup myself and I make sure to leave ample time for him, and any pups I’m watching, to get the exercise they need.

I grew up on a farm in Arkansas, and my ...

When Mariel watches your pet

Because of where I live, all dogs stay on leash outside my home. I do have two tethers in my yard for boarded dogs to get some sunshine and play outside a bit. I prefer to use a harness if a dog is tethered to avoid injury to its neck, and he/she will never be left unattended while tethered. Please be sure to let me know if you would prefer your dog not be able to use the tether on his/her stay!

If you would like, I often take my dog to the dog park at Tommy Schumpert Park for offleash play. If your dog does not play well with groups of dogs, we can go on walks around my neighborhood or play with toys inside. Your pup will also receive lots of treats, pets, and snuggles on a stay with me!
