No surprise...Marika was the best! She is such a thoughtful and caring dog walker. I can't recommend her more. We will be rebooking her yet again bc our Toby LOVES her!

Marika was great with Beau! I loved the updates and photos she put on his card for his walk. She was totally reliable and communicative. I’d definitely book her again!

Flexible schedule & lots of energy

My whole live I‘ve loved dogs and I always take any opportunity I have to cuddle, play or go on adventures with them. I'd love to have my own dog, but due to my frequent traveling that is out of the question for me. I'm ecstatic whenever my friends let me take care of their dogs. I've often been camping and hiking with two of my friend's adorably crazy Labrador Retrievers, taken care of ...

What Marika would like to know about your dog

I honestly love every breed of dog and can handle any kind of character well. From my previous experience I can tell that larger, more playful and energetic dogs loved my endurance and even the most shy ones started to trust me and play with me after a short while. But I'm also more than happy to just snuggle up on the couch with them and give them love while you're away :)

When Marika watches your pet

My favorite places for taking a walk in Austin would be around Ladybird lake, St. Edwards park and Barton creek greenbelt but I also very much enjoy exploring new neighborhoods. I also live right around the corner of Mueller Lake Park which is perfect for shorter walks too.
