Mary is FANTASTIC! She knows dogs well, is observant and attentive, and I would use her again in a heartbeat! Our dog is older and sensitive, and usually gets depressed when we leave her.....sometimes doesn't eat for a few days. Not with Mary! Mary had her eating and enjoying lap time. We got pictures almost daily, and Mary communicated consistently. HIGHLY recommend this dog sitter!

Mary was lovely! Sadie had a wonderful day with her! We sure were thankful Sadie had such a beautiful place to stay for the day while we went to Graceland!
Thank you so much, Mary!

Retired Police Officer

As a retired Police Officer and former manager of an accredited animal hospital, I can provide experienced, loving care for your pets and responsible security for your home while you are away. I am fully insured through PCI.

After retiring from law enforcement, I spent ten years as manager of an accredited animal hospital in SW Florida before my husband’s job took us to Houston, TX. There, I started dog sitting and knew it ...

What Mary would like to know about your dog

Please note that I do not board aggressive or very active dogs. The majority of my business comes from geriatric or special needs dogs. I also would love to know:

Feeding schedule and any special dietary needs
Any medical needs
Walking routine and energy level
If there are any issues with aggression
Comfort level with cats

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
