Marissa did a great job caring for my cat while I was away. She very promptly responded to my care request and set up a meet and great. This addresed my last minute cat-sitter booking anxiety. I recieved numerous pictures and updates while I was away and returned to a happy and healthy kitty. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend Marissa and will use her again!

Marissa was wonderful! She took care of our dog, Maddie, when we were away for a weekend. She was very accommodating and kept us super updated with lots of pictures - something that was really important to me as an overprotective dog mom :) She left our apartment spotless; even cleaner than we had left it. Would definitely recommend her and have her sit for Maddie again!

Cuddle Buddy & Playmate For Pups!

I love dogs because of their sweet and enthusiastic personalities! No matter the circumstance, they are full of love and life. One of my favorite experiences with a pup was when I met a sweet, three-legged dog named Axel, who despite his missing leg, was full of enthusiasm and joy. He was so thrilled that he had three working legs! Dogs accept and love without hesitation and if I can live my life with similar ...

What Marissa would like to know about your dog

Before a stay, I’m happy to set up a meet and greet so I can learn all the info I can about your pup. Here are few things I like to know:

- What is your dog’s normal routine and schedule?
- Does your pup have any medical issues I should know about? What about behavioral tendencies or anxiety issues?
- How can I spoil your dog?
- What is your pup’s normal activity level? Do they need more walks or snuggles throughout the day?

When Marissa watches your pet

On a stay with me, your pup will be happy and safe! To start our day, we’d have a morning potty break followed by a delicious doggy breakfast. After we’re full, I love taking a nice long walk followed by a play session. Exploring is the best with a pup by my side so I’d love to bring your pup on trails through forest preserves in the area! Overall, whatever your pup needs, I’ll be sure to provide! I typically work from around 2:00-8:00pm Mondays through Thursdays but I’ll be sure to check on your pup if they need it! When I get home, we’d have another session of play time and a long walk.The best part of the day will be the movie and snuggles before bed!
