Marisa provides detailed and helpful information in her report cards so I know exactly how my dog is doing when I’m out of town. She’s great!

From Dog Trainer to Dog Walker!

My name is Marisa, and I am an seasoned caretaker for dogs with over twelve years of dog-walking experience. I have gained experience by raising and caring for multiple dogs of my own (including a Pomeranian and large lab mix) , as well as dogs and puppies in my neighborhood. I have also been certified as a dog trainer specializing in positive, reward based training for both dogs and puppies, and learned dog first aid as ...

What Marisa would like to know about your dog

Before I sit your dog, I'd love to know their preferences for things, whether it's walk lengths, style of play, etc. I'd also love to know if your dog has any quirks during walks like chasing birds, trying to eat things off of the ground, or timidness around people. I have no breed, age, or size preference.

When Marisa watches your pet

Your dog will have a fun (and very safe) time with me. Your dog will be able to go on nice long walks, with the possibility of (on leash) play breaks at parks if there is one nearby. I am also an ex-dog trainer, so if you have any tricks you'd like me to practice with your dog, such as good leash walking behavior or sitting at corners before crossing the street, feel free to let me know and I'll be happy to follow your training instructions.
