What Mary would like to know about your dog

If your dark is a "barker" I can gently work with him/her.
If your dog is a puppy, I can provide basic training.
If your dog has any fears (noises), I will be sensitive.
If your dog has any allergies, I will be cautious!
If your dog has diabetes, I am comfortable giving shots.
I have NO breed preferences but do prefer dogs who are comfortable with a Golden Retriever. If not, my Golden can be separated. Our home is a Mediterranean Villa, so it's easy to separate animals.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

Nothing makes me happier than being surrounded by God's creatures, big and small.
My large home is located on Flintrock Falls Golf-Course, a gated/protected community.
Depending on the needs of your pets, I am flexible with my Jeep Wrangler to take to local dog parks/ hill country trails.
I'm often a homebody (as I am a writer/Stay-at-Home-Mom) but enjoy doggie dates at the park during my daughters' school year.
Rest assured that your loved one will be well attended to:) My hands are always "petting" "tossing tennis balls" or "on a leash" and THAT'S THE WAY I LIKE IT! I'm a huge fan of Caesar Chavez and his humane and loving training techniques. My patience with pets awards me all kinds of praise.
