Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
This was Murphy's first time with Mary and it was wonderful. Mary's love of pets shows through in her messages, photos and overall care. I am so glad I found her! Mary even helped with a pickup for Murphy - a tremendous help to me! I have already booked another stay, grateful to know my pup is in good hands. Thanks, Mary!
Mary was so good to our Juno, who can be a pretty high-energy, challenging pup to care for. She got lots of exercise and attention and snuggles, and we got daily photos of a clearly happy dog. Finster is a first-rate host, and Sasquatch must be the world’s most tolerant cat. We’re looking forward to having Juno stay with Mary again!
Mary lived up to her word about being flexible about last minute bookings. She responded promptly and helped us set up a last minute plan. She was very helpful in helping us navigate the system for booking for the first time. She took great care of Sparky.
Flexible for last-minute bookings!
I'm Mary and I'm excited to meet your dog!
I've had dogs for over ten years and fostered for over three. I've cared for elderly dogs, sick dogs, dogs with boundless energy, pregnant dogs, newborn puppies, and older puppies. I have experience with oral, topical. and injected medications, and subcutaneous fluids.
I have one friendly dog with a crooked nose and a one-eyed cat who plays like a dog. They're both great with animal guests ...
What Mary would like to know about your dog
I'd love to make sure your dog is friendly with other dogs since I have one of my own! I also have a cat who loves dogs.
My first priority is to keep your dog safe so please talk to me about any health concerns, (medications, injuries, allergies, dietary restrictions, etc.) or behavioral issues that could impact their safety (persistent chewing/licking, trying to run away, eating strange things, aggression, etc.).
My second priority is to keep your dog happy! What is your dog's daily routine? Do they like daily exercise or are they more of a couch pup? Do they like to snuggle or do their own thing? Do they have a favorite toy or treat? Are there any particular behavioral quirks I should keep an eye out for?
And finally, I want to be respectful of any training you are working on or rules you have for your dog. For example, while dogs are allowed on the furniture at my house, I'm happy to try to keep your pup off the couch during their stay with me to avoid confusing them with inconsistent rules. Working on a particular command? I'd love to keep up the training while you're away!
These are all great topics to discuss during a meet and greet!
