Zero stars. We had to cancel our trip to return. Marilyn was unresponsive for several hours during scheduled visits - no response via text or Rover app. When she finally did respond, the response was incomprehensive. We were stressed the entire time for the lack of service and accountability. We hope no one else experiences the same.

Dogs are gifts for the world by God

Greetings! First of all thanks for taking your time to read me up. My name is Marilyn and as a person that has had dogs all my life and have seen them as part of my family, I can assure that your dogs will be unconditionally loved by me (and if my nieces/nephew, sister, mom are around, they will love them too) They are creatures of love, gifts from God. As everyone is different ...

What Marilyn would like to know about your dog

I’ve had 1 Doberman,1 Boxer, 1 Pittbull and some mixed breeds, but mainly I’ve had throughout my life Rottweilers, so they’re the closest to my heart. So maybe I should say I adore big dogs but my heart belongs to all dogs.

I definitely would love to know what is their character is like.
Any separation anxiety?
Is your dog trained, crate trained as well? (I can help with training =))
What they like to do?
If they have any bad habits, or typical habits of their age, for example, if they like to chew on things, or eat grass or other dog’s feces.
Do they have fleas or ticks, been vaccinated and/or if they have skin allergies or any medical issues I need to be aware of?
Spayed or neutered.
If they prefer being inside or outside. How many times they need to go out. Their feeding schedule and how many cups?
Anything that will make me aware of their needs and protect my other guests at home, for we all want the best for all our dogs.

When Marilyn watches your pet

I’m a runner, so as a runner I take my Raven to runs and walks. I had recently a car accident so my runs are now more like jogs with extended walking. No matter how I am, I will definitely take your little loved one for a morning, and evening walk or speed walk. I don’t really like taking them out where there is asphalt, since it gets hotter than expected and I think for their little feet. So walks will be when is not as hot so early morning, late afternoon.

I have dog seat belts to make it extra safe but when I don't drive there are walking distance parks and dog parks. Margaret Pace Park is the main dog park around my house. We would go there for our extended walks and play time with others (with the discretion of the parent/owner). With permission of course, I can take them to Kennedy Park in Coconut Grove to do extra exercise. In my house we will play outside my backyard (fenced) and inside as well (specially in rainy seasons) with toys, doggy pool and other fun things.

Once we are done playing, they will have their coat, paws, face cleanse with wipes and always deodorized.

When it comes to your dog's health, my house is cleaned at least as 4 times when doggy guests are here.

I have a bachelor's in biopharmaceutical, (working on getting into med school), and I can assure you that I am very aware of the chemicals that are harmful for us and our doggy loves.

My home is cleaned with eco-friendly/pet-friendly cleaning supplies.
My backyard is treated with diatomaceous earth to prevent any heart worm, fleas, ticks and other insects at home.

If you choose the option of bathing/grooming your pups then I have different choices of bathing supplies from the brands CHI, Biolsilk, Burt Bee's, Only Natural Pet, and other few favorite choices.
