I've known Marissa for 5+ years, all in the dog care profession. She ran shifts at a dog daycare, hiked dogs, trained with her own dog, and finally, took care of my pet dogs.

Have no fear! Marissa is a dependable and extremely experienced dog sitter. Her past experience at a licensed dog daycare facility as well as with a professional dog trainer gives her the extra knowledge, love, compassion, and professionalism you would want in someone you entrust your dog to. She not only takes excellent care of your animals, but your home as well. I highly recommend Marissa.

Your dog needs a vacation too!

Hi! My name is Marissa and dogs are my passion. I have been pet sitting for 10 years on the side. I worked in the animal industry for 4 years in places such as a boarding/daycare facility as well as working as an operations manager for a reputable dog training company. I have training in pet first aid as well as pet CPR. I am comfortable giving medications.

I promise you wont go wrong ...

What Marissa would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences. I like to know the basics and any potential weird quirks. Weird quirks don't eliminate the possibility of watching your dog, it just helps me be better prepared.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

Time I'll spend with your dog
I will spend the majority of my time there when I am not at work. This can be a stressful time for dogs so I do whatever I can to make it the most comfortable for them.
