The dogs seemed ok with Marissa, I was worried but she definitely has a way with our dogs. I loved she sent me pics of them on their walks. I got to see the route taken and could communicate with her if needed. The experience was very positive. Marissa exceeded my expectations and we will be using her services again.

Marisa is, as always, great. She has become our go to sitter and the pets love her, too! She is neat, conscientious, and trustworthy. Definitely will book again!

AMAZING as always! This is Muffin's 4th or 5th stay with Marisa and he's always so happy when we get home. She came twice a day and made sure to give him lots of cuddles and put us at ease with multiple photo updates each visit. We are so grateful we found her and can't wait to book our next trip. Thank you, Marisa!!!!

I'm the real dog whisperer

I’ve had a way with our four-legged friends for as long as I can remember––my family always had a pup as part of our loving household. I was taking care of a stray German Shepherd until I could find her family, but we had to take her to the shelter since they were nowhere to be found, but luckily, she has been officially adopted! I hope to make taking care of dogs a ...

What Marisa would like to know about your dog

A meet and greet would be perfect for all of us to get acquainted with each other. I’d want to make sure your pup is super comfortable around me, my smells, my voice, what have you. Your pup’s happiness and comfort are the main concerns. I will want to know everything I need to know to ensure your dog’s health and routine, like dietary restrictions, triggers, where they like to walk, play, etc. I will go above and beyond for you. I will walk your pup at least twice a day, but most likely more since I am outside most of the time. I will gladly send you text/photo updates throughout the day, and please feel free to contact me whenever. And oh, if you have any tricks you’re working on with your pup, please let me know, I’m pretty good at teaching dogs tricks. I think it’s really important to keep an open line of communication for your well-being and mine. I’m here to help!

When Marisa watches your pet

Again, I will be offering your pup multiple walks a day, and the exact location will really depend on where you are. I know all the great areas for dogs in Santa Clarita, and if you’re near UCLA, I also know some sweet spots to explore. Otherwise, I’m happy to learn where your pup’s favorite places are. Just point me in the right direction and we’ll set off on many fun adventures together. I enjoy hiking, swimming, any activity, so your pup will get tons of heart-pumping exercise, but we will also spend a lot of time on the couch, you can be sure of that! I look forward to connecting with your pup and feel the love of a dog again.
