Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Mary is amazing! I had originally contacted her asking for boarding during the busy 4th of July weekend. She was quick to respond that she would be out of town and I moved on to trying to find another sitter. Finally found one, but then the sitter backed out. Even though a few weeks went by, Mary reached back out to me to let me know that she was now available just in case I ...
Mary took great care of our pup! Emmett is usually very tentative around strangers but immediately warmed up to Mary and her dog Finster! He felt right at home! She was attentive to instructions and remembered all of the nuances and unique behaviors of Emmett. While we were gone, she was communicative and sent lots of great pics! She went above and beyond, and we were so appreciative to have Emmett in such good hands ...
Mary was able to take Mia on short notice and was very accommodating. She kept us updated on Mia getting settled in and understood her unique needs. Could not ask for more.
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 two. 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!
