Maurica stayed in our home and cared for our Old English Bull Dog & Kitty. She communicated with us, followed the instructions we left and gave our fur babies a lot of attention. Knowing Maurica was there gave us piece of mind. She took great care of our pets and our home. We highly recommend Maurica.

Maurica did such a wonderful job watching Skipper. She kept in touch every day and was a delight to communicate with! I felt as though I had left her with a relative. I completely trusted her and did not have to worry one bit. I could tell she genuinely cared about my girl. Maurica also house sat and the house was immaculate upon our return. I couldn't be happier with her . I have already booked ...

Maurica has been a friend of mine for the last 12 years and during that time, she has cared for both of my dogs multiple times while I was gone with my family. Her accountability, reliability and her love of animals shows through every time we needed her assistance! She also has experience in manner training of puppies, as she helped raise her brother’s lab puppy. Your doggos/other pets would be in great ...

The friend everyone gets to pet sit

I have loved animals my entire life. I'm typically the person friends ask to watch their animals - dogs and cats alike - as I am comfortable with both.

I volunteered at a cat shelter for 2 years and have leash trained and worked with dogs on commands/discipline for the last 3-4 years on and off with friend/family pets. I genuinely love dogs and would like to channel that energy into taking care of other ...

What Maurica would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences as long as initial meetings go well with the dog. The main things I would like to know about a dog are how well they have been socialized (are they good with other dogs), have they had an other dogs be aggresive toward them, and do they have any food aggression. Also if you'd like me to work on commands, just show me what to work on and I can reinforce training.

When Maurica watches your pet

The river trail, MSU's campus, your neighborhood and really anywhere you are comfortable letting me take your pet. I'm open to activities with their toys like tug-of-war, frisbee, ball, and water activities if you're open to it and the pet is comfortable with it.
