There is nothing better than a Pet!

Pet care experience

I am available 7 days a week from 8am-10pm. Celebrating my 5th year with Rover. Canine & Feline first aid and CPR certified. I will leave you a diary from your pet when I sit, so you know how we got along and what your best friend was up to.This IS my full time job. I was a seasonal cast member at "Walt Disney World" and a Big Sister With "Big Brothers, Big Sisters" you can rest assured my background has been meticulously checked. My dog weight limitations are only for walking. If you are ok with letting your dogs out in your yard, then I am ok with any size dog. I have volunteered at Broward Humane Society for 4 years and 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida rescue for 3 years. I can also take in your mail and water your plants. I can feed, walk, clean up after, administer oral and injectable medication, give commands for treats, brush and give affection to your pet. I am fine with multiple pets. I have sat for dogs, birds, cats, bunnies and chinchillas too. I have references per request. I would prefer meeting with you (the owner) and the pet before I pet sit. You can fill me in on their favorite place to be pet, where they sleep etc. Photography is my hobby, so I'll take lots of cute photos of your pet. As an adult experienced pet owner and sitter I take watching your pet very seriously.

Marlene takes very good care of our dog and home. Our dog loves her, which gives us peace of mind when we’re traveling. I would highly recommend Marlene!

Our first time using Rover and Marlene was AMAZING!! One of our dogs can be a bit anxious when we leave but he took to her so quickly. Now that she’s gone, he keeps looking for her in the spare room she stayed in ❤️. Will 100% be welcoming her back! And would recommend her to anyone needing some pup and house sitting.

Our girls (two cats) are always perfectly fine and normal when we return whether from a short trip or a long time away when under Marlene's care. Have used her services repeatedly and will continue to do so. She is great.

Marlene is simply the best! She’s been visiting my little mini schnauzer when I go into the office, and my dog loves her! Before she agreed to start walking my dog, she came to my house to meet my dog and see where all the dog walk accessories and treats were - I really liked this, because I got to meet Marlene and see how she interacted with my dog… she took lots of notes too which made me happy as a dog mom! She’s always been super communicative and dynamic with my ever-changing schedule. I like that she sends Rover summaries after each visit with my dog and includes pictures! Marlene also goes above and beyond - she always brings the mail in, and even gave me the sweetest little cards/gifts for Mother’s Day (a card from my dog) and Christmas (luggage tags with my dog’s picture in them)! I 10/10 recommend her!

Safety, trust & environment

I’m very careful upon entry, I have a gate in my car in case your pet is a “runner” I always supervise when let out in a yard. I use lights on your dog while walking at night and never a retractable leash.

Information Marlene P. would like to know about your pet

I would like to know if your pet has allergies, will go out in the rain and is afraid of noises (ex. thunder) what and where they eat and sleep. How do they get along with other dogs and people on walks.

A typical day

When pet sitting I will stay overnight in your home. Depending on the size of your pet I will make sure your pet is not alone more than a pre determined amount of hours. Your pet will leave you a diary. When dropping in I will feed, play, walk, give affection and brush. When walking, I have a light for night time, air horn for defense and a water bottle.
