Marissa is great!
Marissa did an amazing job taking care of our cats for an extended weekend trip! They’re usually a bit slow to warm up to strangers but, based on the photos that she took during her visits, they were fast friends and had lots of fun playing together. We also have a lizard and Marissa was very attentive and brave in learning how to care for him too. It gave us great peace of mind ...
Marissa is great! Very trustworthy, responsible, and caring - definitely an awesome pet sitter!
Let's hit the trail! Home Full-Time
ABOUT MY BOARDING SERVICES:
To ensure that your dog gets my full attention, I only board one dog (or multiple dogs from the same household) at a time. 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 ...
What Marissa would like to know about your dog
My dog Tofu is very friendly, 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 male fiancé.
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.
