Mary took great care of our 2 dogs as always. We have had her stay with our girls quite a few times now and we can't imagine anyone else caring for them while we're away!

Mary and her husband took such good care of our furbaby. We got daily pictures and updates! He was happy, clean, and so was our house when we got home. We are so thankful to have found someone to treat Bogie like their own while we are gone!

The pups will play while you're away!

Your pooch will be well loved and cared for in my modest single family home. (Sorry, because of the pets already in my home, I can only accommodate 1 dog.) Please be aware that I have a 10 year old Pit Bull/German Shepherd mix (adopted as a puppy from an animal shelter, and super sweet) and 3 adopted cats in my home. If your pooch is not dog AND cat friendly, I also offer ...

What I'd like to know about your dog

My biggest concern is you dog's experience with cats, and other dogs. I have 3 cats in my home. They are obviously used to dogs, but not used to being chased by them. If your dog has never met a cat before, out of respect for my cats, I will not be able to watch your dog in my home. But I do also offer traveling dog sitting.

Being breed specific is akin to being racist and I do not believe in it. The only dog I do not like to work with is one that is overly aggressive.

I am also not species specific. Well, I prefer not to deal with spiders. Snakes, lizards, birds, small woodland creatures, etc. on the other hand, are right up my alley.

When your dog stays with Mary

Here's where we'll take our walks
There is a fenced-in dog park at the end of our street, and our neighborhood is big, with lots of sidewalks and grass. I can also take the pups to Town Lake for a run, a swim and/or playtime at the dog parks. If you have a favorite spot to take your pooch, let me know.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
We allow our dog, Hemi, to sleep in the room with us. He has a dog bed, our bed or the floor to choose from. There is a baby gate up to prevent him from roaming the house unattended. Hemi also has his own room, with a loveseat under the window, that he stays in when we are not home. Your pooch is welcome in our room or Hemi's room. If you prefer a different arrangement, please let me know.

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much as you prefer, depending on my schedule that day. I do have a part time retail job, so I do not always know my schedule way in advance. If you would like me to spend a lot of time with your pet(s) and you book 2 weeks in advance, I can request off so that I can dedicate that time to your pet(s).

My husband has also been able to help if something comes up at work.

As I have done with my pets on occasion, I can also just stop by a few times a day to play with your pooch and take him or her for a much deserved walk. Since I want you to feel comfortable with the care your "kids" get, I can tailor my services to your needs.

Do you need me to stay the night? Stop by 4 or 5 times a day? If you would like, I can take your pup to Town Lake for a run, a swim and/or playtime at the open or fenced dog park. If you have a favorite spot to take your pooch, let me know.

Extra house-sitting services
If you would like me to pick up the mail or water the plants, no worries, I have you covered. If you would like me to take care of additional duties, like feeding the cats or cleaning the litter box, just let me know. I can do that too!
