Marissa is just the best! We were new to the area and needed to find someone to take care of our dog a couple days a week and she was extremely flexible and happy to jump right in for us and take the very best care of him. She is constantly providing us with updates and pictures and we don't know what we would do without her.

I have known Marissa for almost 10 years, and she is a very loving and caring person! She is great with my small poodle mix Macey! Macey is now 15 years old, and Marissa is able to tenderly care and play with her. We know that Macey is safe and well taken care of despite her age while we are out of town. I highly recommend Marissa!

Dogs make life better.

Hi there, I'm Marissa! I am a full time student at South Hills studying medical sonography. I have loved and been around dogs my whole life. I have two dogs of my own, a micro long-haired chihuahua and a boxer-pitbull mix. I have experience working with trainers, volunteering at Paws Animal Shelter, and dog walking/house sitting for the past 8 years. Overall I am a good communicator, trustworthy and reliable pet sitter. I have worked ...

What Marissa would like to know about your dog

Normal routines - potty and feeding schedule.
Typical energy level, and owner commands.
Behavior - is your dog aggressive or timid? I prefer non-aggressive dogs, but timid is fine.
If your dog is okay being around other dogs or cats and if they get along with children.
If your dog is crate trained and house trained.
Clean of fleas and ticks.
Any medications or illnesses I should be aware of.
And lastly: belly rubs, tug of war, frisbee, fetch.. what does your dog enjoy?

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise
Senior Dog Experience

I would love to take your dog on hikes up Mount Nittany, go to the dog park, or go swimming in any local streams. Even a simple walk around my neighborhood would suffice. However if they cannot exercise I am totally okay with being a couch potato with your pup!

It's all about what you and your dog are comfortable with.

Before I care for your pet, I believe it's important for us to set up a meet and greet! This way you as my client are confident knowing that your dog is in good hands.

If you have any additonal questions or concerns, don't hesitate to message me
