We hadn’t taken a vacation in two years because of our special needs dog and then we found Mary. Her positivity and her love of pets makes her the perfect dog sitter. Our special needs dog can sometimes be demanding of ones time but Mary immediately understood how to appease her and keep her active. I am pleased to recommend Mary and I look forward to our next vacation knowing that our pets will be ...

Thank you Tamara, It was a pleasure to help you with your sweet dogs and I'm so happy you enjoyed ...

Mary is like a dog whisperer as my 3 dogs instantly fell in love with her. They don't generally make friends with new people so easily so I was surprised at how close they got immediately. I loved receiving the daily messages from Mary with cute photos of my dogs. They looked like they didn't even miss me. I'll definitely have Mary dog sit again.

I’m so grateful we discovered Mary at the last minute to take care of our two poodles. They adored her instantly at our meet and greet and most impressive, she came over after the dog sitting to visit them on her own time. Now I know I can relax and take a real vacation knowing she is taking care of our beloved dogs.

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.

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.
