Mary took great care with our pets and our house. She was great with sending pics, being self-sufficient with a hand-off with another sitter, and leaving our house in great shape, including a freshly made bed! She has a wonderfully happy and positive attitude.

Mary did a great job with the dogs and the house. I got to enjoy vacation and not worry about anything. The house was also clean and and tidy when I got home, which was an unexpected bonus. Mary goes above and beyond.

Mary stayed with our two Golden Retrievers for two weeks. She sent lots of pictures and videos. It allowed us to see how happy they were. Our older dog takes a number of medications, and Mary administered those flawlessly. She took them for daily walks and maintained their normal routine to ease any anxiety they may have had. I’m sure they’d enjoy having her take care of them again, and so would we!

Tender Loving Care for Your Dogs

Suddenly your dogs will have a new best friend. Cuddles, love, walks, and treats.

I'm a Palo Alto author (for 33 years) and will be with them all day, I don't leave to go to an outside job.

They’ll be loved, played with, and get heaps of personal attention daily.

I'm an author, award winning photographer, educator, and humanitarian. I've led programs worldwide and am just back again after shooting for a social venture ...

What Mary would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs. Does your dog like to be pet on the belly or the ears? Where do they feel safest sleeping and what do they like to do? Do they need medication?

When Mary watches your pet

I like to take dogs on their familiar routes in their own neighborhood so they have an everyday expectation that they know will be fulfilled.

If they like to play fetch I will enthusiastically give them a good workout.

I'm dog sitting right now and the darling dog knows exactly where she wants to stroll.

Love to establish an on-going relationship with your dogs and you.
