Mary is very responsible and respectful and did a wonderful job being with ...

My Chihuahua Russet loves Mary! She took care of his medications with no problem and played with him. I can tell she did a thorough job with care.

Professional Dog Walker

I've owned a dog all my life and have cared for 50+ dogs during my time as a professional dog walker.

What Mary would like to know about your dog

-What specific demands do you tell your dog to sit, stay, laydown, stop jumping? Example: To get your dog to stop jumping do you say "off", "down", "no jump", etc?
-Is your dog aggresive towards other dogs or common things we might see on our walk (little kids, squirrels, motorcycles)?
-Is your dog food/toy motivated?

When Mary watches your pet

Other than caring for family members with four legs, I enjoy house sitting (with pets), administrative work, working in sales, and house work. I am VERY detail oriented when it comes to cleaning and organizing. In my free time I enjoy reading, learning, going to church, walking at forest preserves, and spending time with family.
