Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Morgen had a great stay with MaryAnn. She has a really nice backyard and her dogs are very friendly. Seems like they bonded well and Morgen got to go with her on a couple of hikes. I will definitely bring Morgen there again.
Excellent care. We were confident the entire time that our baby was safe and in good hands. We received pictures and updates in just the perfect amount. We are so grateful to have found MaryAnn. We will go back to her again and again when we travel.
When we came back from our vocation we were very happy to learn that Archie had his vocation too.
HOME F/T! Fun and Active Family
Hello! My name is MaryAnn, and I am a RoveGO Sitter who lives close to Dearborn Park in Northridge, CA. I am a former teacher with LAUSD, and upon leaving the profession, I switched from kids to dogs :) While still teaching in my 20's and 30's, I volunteered at the Agoura Hills Animal Shelter, walking, grooming and facilitating in the adoptive process. When my own children were school aged, I puppy raised/obedience trained 2 ...
What MaryAnn would like to know about your dog
The pre-visit is a wonderful way to assess if your dog (s) is friendly with both of my dogs. My dogs know that they get extra play time (and treats), when they have doggie visitors. I have knowledge of most breeds, either by dog sitting many different breeds in the past, or working with them in an Animal Shelter environment. I welcome all sizes and breeds of dogs.
I have a behavior questionnaire that you need to fill out when you drop off your dog (s), so I am aware of any potential problems and get advice from you as to how to handle them beforehand.
I also work on basic obedience training (if needed) with dogs entrusted in my care. I try to have them sit before meals (if they are not a grazer) sit by the door before they enter or leave, and I work on the "down" command with treats and praise. If you have any issues you would like to discuss with me, or behaviors you are having trouble with, I would be happy to try and help!
