Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Marissa was awesome all around to the point not sure my dog wanted to come back home. She loved the day adventures
Will definitely be using her again. Highly recommended
Marissa took great care of our sick kitty when we had to go out of town for a couple of days. We loved the photos she took of him, and she gave us great updates. Great communication, great care of the kitty and the space. Thank you Marissa!
We've tried a lot of sitters to check in on our needy, affectionate cat when we're away. With everyone else, when we come home he's mad at us for a week. When Marissa takes care of Chico, when we come home he's mad at us for ten minutes. That says it all! Marissa is a great pet sitter and Chico loves her! Very communicative, responsive, lots of photos.
Let's have an adventure this summer
ABOUT MY BOARDING SERVICES:
I'll spoil your dog with treats, belly rubs and long walks! My family loves to go hiking in the various East Bay Regional Parks. Tofu prefers to go off-leash, but we can keep your "Buddy" on leash if you'd prefer. If your dog is high-energy, loves to run free (but has good recall), and loves to explore, our walks would be perfect! But, we also do long walks around the neighborhood ...
What Marissa would like to know about your dog
My dog Tofu is very playful and energetic. He loves to play with toys and other dogs inside our home. If your dog is sensitive to sharing toys (possessive behavior) and does not like social dogs, we may not be your perfect fit. As much as I love silver-haired pups, we can not host senior dogs with physical limitations.
In order to hit the trail, your dog must have generally good car-related skills (no barking or trying to get into the driver's seat). If you do not want your dog to go in the car, please let me know! I'd be happy to keep it to "neighborhood walks only".
Your dog also must be comfortable with both men and women, as I live with my husband.
We do live on a busy street, so your dog must be used to the street sounds that comes with an urban dwelling.
Finally, sometimes dogs may get a little "homesick"when introduced to new surroundings and people. I would love to keep your dog's usual routine as much as possible. Please let me know if your dog has had any behavior issues when boarding in the past, such as excessive barking, aggression, lack of appetite, anxiety licking, shaking or shivering.
