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!

When MaryAnn watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We will go on long walks around my lovely neighborhood, stretching our legs and meeting several friendly fur-neighbors along the way. I hike a few times a week, and if your dog is fit and healthy, and is used to being on hikes with other leashed dogs on the trail, I can take your pooch on a hike (with your permission of course).

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog is welcome to sleep wherever he feels most comfortable. Most dogs I dog sit, usually end up in the kitchen with my Labrador, or upstairs in my bedroom with my Labradoodle. I also have a very large, clean crate in my bedroom, if you wish your dog to be crated.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home FULL TIME, so how does 24/7 sound? Your dog will have my undivided attention, given the love and affection he deserves day and night. While you are gone you can be sure to rest easy knowing that your canine pal is being very well taken care of and his every need will be met. His every wish will be my command, whether he needs a good scratching behind the ears or wants to go for a long walk. The best part? Belly rubs on demand!

With your permission, I can take your pooch on a long hike at O'Melveny Park in Granada Hills.
