Marina was super sweet and attentive to all of Bea’s needs. My pup can be nervous and reactive but Marina had a positive approach to every situation. So grateful for her patience and time spent with Bea. I came home to a happy girl!? She house sat at my apt and left the place exactly as it was which is always appreciated. Will definitely use Marina again!

We have nothing but great things to say about Marina. She watched all 5 of our animals and sent pictures each day which allowed us to enjoy our vacation. All of the dogs were very well taken care of and the cats took to her immediately. We would 100% recommend Marina to watch your pets!

Marina cared for our dog, Mark, when we were away. We loved Marina's energy and enthusiasm. She established a rapport with Mark right away. You can tell a dog person a mile away, and Mark's reaction to her proved it. A great hire!

Caring & Concientious Dog Lover!

Hello! I’m Marina, a compassionate dog care professional with over five years of pet sitting experience. Dog sitting is the best hobby ever — it not only allows me to meet some wonderful dogs (and humans), but I also get to make a real impact on the clients I work with! I have worked with all types of little guys, from a hyper and happy Jack Russell Terrier, to a great old Irish Wolfhound names ...

What Marina would like to know about your dog

I want to know all about your dog’s routine, commands, and rules, and am sure to follow owner instructions very closely to ensure safety and hapiness for the pup, myself, and you, the owner.

I don't have any breed preferences, but I would like to know anything that can increase a dog's safety during our time together, like how they react to strangers or strange dogs, or any food sensitivities or allergies. To make sure I make a good first impression on your little guy, I will always approach new dogs quietly and calmly, avoiding eye contact at first, always matching energy to not stress your dog.

When Marina watches your pet

We'll go for plenty of walks around town so your pup gets plenty of exercise and potty breaks. Whether in the backyard or in the living room, we'll do some good old tug o' war, fetch, and just stretch our legs and have some fun! I'll mostly stick around your dog’s neighborhood to keep things familiiar, but we may head to a nearby dog park for some nice, open space if your dog is comfortable around others.

I keep in contact with the owner the whole time we're together, whether it's for one short walk or an overnight stay. I follow all the rules and routines your pup usually follows, so they enjoy a safe and comfortable time with me!
