We have had Mary look over our dogs including dogs with special needs, like medical needs and old age. She did great. I think after a week of her caring for our dogs they liked her more than us LOL. She is compassionate and very capable. I highly recommend her.

About Mary

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Athletic and active

I have cared for my own dogs and cats for almost 40 years. I am physically active and I took my dogs camping, hiking, running and skiing. I have a flexible work schedule, so I am able to be with the pets at different times during the day.

When Mary watches your pet

I enjoy skiing and hiking in and around Anchorage, and usually go to Hillside and/or dog parks for dog outings.
