Marissa took great care of our dog. She was flexible with drop off and pick up which was a bonus for us. We will definitely use her again.

Bear is an anxious dog. We are his third home--the last home gave him up to the shelter when they were going to have a baby, and didn't want to care for a dog any longer. So, he is obviously nervous about being left somewhere. He was very happy at Marissa's place, and enjoyed time with a caring family and an older dog. He obviously got a lot of loving attention. We'll do it again!

Marissa was wonderful...the pets loved her on sight. She picked up our mail and left the house in good order. We would be happy to have her help us out again!

Active, Experienced, Dog lover

I’ve been surrounded by dogs my whole life, and love dogs of all shapes and sizes! I’ve had experience with both small and large dogs. My family used to foster dogs and I have had a lot of experience with many different breeds. I am a trained dog and cat socializer and adoption councilor from SCRAPS. I have volunteered at SCRAPS for over two years. I have both pet sat with dogs staying ...

What Marissa would like to know about your dog

I’d like to know if your dog is house trained and how they interact with other dogs/cats. It's also helpful for me to know what commands you use in your home so I can effectively communicate with your pet. Preferences on leash/off-leash at fenced parks and dog parks is also good for me to know! I don’t have any specific breed preferences.

When Marissa watches your pet

I live near a fenced sports complex with lots of space for runs and playing fetch! My jack russell loves to go on hikes and would love to have a friend to join him!
