Marissa is awesome! She has boarded my Nala twice now and I would definitely recommend her services. I received pictures of my pooch while she was in Marissa's care and Marissa kept in communication with me. Thank you Marissa!!

Nala was a joy to care for!

Marissa provided patient and skilled care for my diabetic dog on two different weeks when I went out of town. I would use her again and recommend her to others.

Linda, it was wonderful getting to know and take care of Wilbur. He is a gentleman and welcome anytime!

Vet Tech At Your Service!

I’m Marissa and I absolutely love dogs! I’m currently an Admissions Counselor for the San Diego Humane Society who has dedicated my life to animal health. I also have exotics and large animal care experience. My love for our furry friends started at an early age and I was always that kid who was finding injured birds, motherless kittens or puppies, and animals of every size to nurse back to health at home ...

What Marissa would like to know about your dog

Before a stay, I’d be happy to set up a meet and greet so you can get to know me a little better. Things that are important for me to know about your pet prior to pet sitting include their health issues, medical issues, dietary needs, naughty habits (fence jumpers, cat chasers, aggressive tendencies, toy/bed eaters), how they feel about other animals, and their favorite toys and treats! I don't have breed preferences, but I have a soft spot for Pitbulls, Bulldogs, and Mastiffs. Really, I just love furry faces.

When Marissa watches your pet

On a stay with me, we’ll be sure to take trips to the beach, hiking trails, or go on walks around their favorite haunts. We can also make sure to relax at home as much as your doggy needs. Pups handle separation anxiety from their people much better with lots of playtime and distraction, which I will be more than happy to provide them!

I would only ever leave for quick, personal errands that a dog can’t accompany me on. No matter what your pup needs for a safe and happy stay, I’ll provide it!
