Marissa was excellent. She was attentive to Mayberry's unique habits, and kept me well informed. Marissa is responsible, intelligent, extremely pleasant and trustworthy. Highly recommend, but I get first dibs!

About Marissa

Experienced Handler Available!

What Marissa would like to know about your dog

First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration

When Marissa watches your pet

I love to hike! I would love to take your dog for a romp in the woods in a more rural setting, whether it's Frances Slocum State Park or a low-key wooded area near your home. I am also very careful when it comes to fleas and ticks, and will perform thorough checks after any woods walks to ensure your pooch is pest-free.
