Marty is an awesome dog sitter! Very kind and calm demeanor helped my shy pup to trust him and be comfortable around him. Marty sends multiple photo updates every day, and is very communicative and responsive when you have questions. Excellent professional sitter that earned both my and my dog's trust. A+

This was our pup Panko's second stay at Martin's and he had the best time! He is definitely starting to think of it as his second home. He gets so excited when we're walking up to the building and doesn't even want to get back in my car to leave afterwards! He is truly loved there! They are also great with sending pictures and updates. And, amazingly, he comes back cleaner and fluffier than when ...

Martin and Chelsea are both great! Our dog, Callie loved her stay with them and in all their photo and story updates Callie seemed to be perfectly happy and comfortable! Knowing Callie was staying with loving and responsible people in a homey environment made our vacation even more enjoyable. We will for sure use them again!

What Martin would like to know about your dog

If any of the following info is not available on your dog's Rover profile, please provide it in a message when contacting me. It helps us review and book your dog's stay faster:

1. What's your dog's care schedule like in terms of food, walks, exercise, potty breaks, sleep?

2. What's your dog's general behavior and temperament like?

3. Is it okay to leave your dog alone for 4 hours or less? Any separation anxiety? Any barking inside when alone?

4. Any destructive tendencies? Any chewing of household items, cords, etc? Any seeking out trash/food in cupboards?

5. Does your dog have any special needs?

6. Are you able to schedule a meet and greet at our apartment before booking your dog's stay? What's your schedule like?

7. Are you able to drop-off/pick-up your dog to and from our apartment for it's stay? If known, what are the approximate times of day you plan to drop-off/pick-up your dog?

Thank you!

When Martin watches your pet

We're open to any dogs, breeds, and pet/client needs.

Our typical expectations for service and care at our Rover base rate are as follows:
- Supervision at our home of your well-behaved dog for the majority of the day.
- Photos and updates of your dogs stay. (Typically, 1-2 day.)
- Walk/potty/play breaks every 4 hours (or 4-5 times a day) for 15 minutes. (Although, I often go out for 30 minutes or longer, no extra charge, depending on the day and dog.)
- Owner drops off and picks up dog to and from our apartment for it's stay.
- For boarding, our Rover day/night rate is approximately 24 hours from drop-off to pick-up. For, early drop-offs and/or late pick-ups that exceed 24 hours, we may discuss an additional charge prior to booking.

We can be very flexible with your dog, travel plans and pick-up/drop-off times. We may be able to offer pick-up/drop-off to and from your home. We're happy to care for dogs that have special needs or require extra care (guaranteed long walks, runs, more frequent potty breaks, medication, etc.). However, we may have to discuss an additional charge for these services prior to booking.

For social dogs, the dog park on Pine St at Minor is a couple blocks away. For walks, our favorite nearby spots are Jim Ellis Freeway Park by Convention Center or Cal Anderson Park. For active dogs, we can go for runs and perhaps a day hike. For the snuggly dog, they'll receive plenty of petting and attention.
