When I first did the meet and greet with Mary S, I knew that she was the one for our loving pet Mike. She is just plain awesome. She's a good listener, has a great kind loving soul and is a very caring individual. I would definitely recommend her because she goes above and beyond. I look forward to using Mary again to care for our family pet on our next vacation.

experienced & caring walker/sitter

I have been doing professional dog walking and petsitting on an occasional basis for the past 18 years.

What Mary would like to know about your dog

So that I can be best prepared to handle the situation, I would want to know about any behavioral issues or negative habits that the dog has or may exhibit while i am caring for him/her. Needless to say, i would want to know about any relevant health conditions that the dog has, including any medical needs that I should attend to or be aware of. Although I would not be allowing the dog to interact with dogs that we would encounter on walks (unless otherwise requested by owner) , it would be helpful to know if the dog is dog-aggressive, dog-selective, or generally good with other dogs.

When Mary watches your pet

With the owner's permission:
we can go on long walks in the neighborhood, long walks in the nearest park, and off-leash playtime in an enclosed area of the nearest park. Indoors, I will strive to keep your dog entertained with games of fetch, tug, etc.
