Marissa took care of our dog and two cats in my home over a long weekend, and I could not have asked for a better pet sitter. She took excellent care of our animals and sent us photos and updates so I did not have to worry about a thing. I highly recommend her and will definitely contact her the next time we travel.

Marissa has watched my pups twice so far and I couldn’t be happier with the service she has provided. Marissa provides regular updates with pictures as well as flexibility with pick up/drop off times. She also treats my dogs as if they’re part of her family and they get plenty of cuddles and play time. I will continue to pet sit with Marissa in the future!

Thank you so much! I hope you and Ella and Terry all had a great New Year!!! ?

Walks, Belly Rubs & Treats...Oh My!

My name is Marissa and there is nothing I love more than cuddles with my dogs (and my humans)! I grew up in a home where we constantly rescued dogs and that love has only grown stronger. My family jokes that I'm not allowed at the animal shelter or I'd come home with every dog there! It's probably true...
My husband PJ and I live in a safe & dog-friendly neighborhood with our 4 kids ...

What Marissa would like to know about your dog

I don't have any breed restrictions! All dogs are welcome as long as they are non-aggressive and good with children.
We want our furry friends to be happy, whether it be playing, giving kisses and cuddles, going for a walk or laying in the sun!
We would like guests to be house trained and up to date on all vaccines, flea and tick and heartworm medication.
Since I want all dogs to feel at home, I'd like to know anything that will help them have a great experience...sleeping habits, likes / dislikes, typical schedule, etc.

When Marissa watches your pet

I am happy to follow any guidelines you set forth for your fur baby.
Our dogs enjoy walks, chasing kids around the house, looking for bunnies out back, slurping up cold water and cuddling with mommy and daddy. Although we don't have a fenced yard, we spend a lot of time outdoors and your pets will be a part of the fun!
Whatever your pet needs, we are happy to accommodate.
We do ask for a crate to accompany your pet, in the event they have recurring accidents or aren't getting along with another dog and need brief periods to relax.
