Marissa was our guardian angel this weekend. She came over last minute on a holiday wknd to take care of our nervous/anxious rescue dog. Our girl penny was abused and is very distrusting of strangers. We were worried how having a sitter would work out. But, Marissa waltzed in and became fast friends with penny, our dog was completely calm and comfortable from the moment she walked in our door. It is very clear ...

Tiff had a blast with Marissa! I loves that I got a ton of great photos of Tiff while I was away. Tiff barely seemed ready to go home when I came to pick her up!

Marissa was great with my pup! Very responsive, sent me pictures throughout, and was able to give medicine. Would recommend!

Let Me Love Your Dog!

l grew up in a house with German Shepherds and Dachshunds- my uncle was a breeder, and have also been the proud caregiver to Westies, Labradors, Pugs, and Japanese Chins, among others. I love the gentle, playful, and loving nature of dogs, and genuinely invest all my love and attention to the dogs l get to take care of. l like dog sitting, because l get to interact with a variety of pups and owners ...

What Marissa would like to know about your dog

Before we meet, l like to know if your pets have anxiety issues, and what helps them through it, allergies, any specific preferences- l like to have a little treat or toy waiting for my first time visitors. I would like to know how your dog does with other dogs, people, and animals. I want to make sure that everything is comfortable as possible for them.

When Marissa watches your pet

I tailor my stays to the dog's activity level and pet parent's wishes! I love taking my dog pals out for walks, visits to dog friendly establishments, and generally try to give my four legged clients a mini vacation of their own while away from mom and dad. I'm also happy to set up facetime or skype dates so you can keep in touch in real time.
