Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Maya took amazing care of our little three month old springer spaniel cross 'Pumpkin' and our year old Rat terrier cross 'Layla'.
They came back well exercised and so happy! Layla has had trust issues for a while and usually takes a while to warm up to people so we were a bit worried, but she LOVED Maya which really made us glad! Thanks to her we had a great trip and didn't once worry ...
Maya was very thorough and kind. She provided excellent care for Jersey. She was easy to communicate with and treated my dog as though it were her own. I would highly recommend her to look after any pet and would hire her again in an instant!
Maya took excellent care of our little poochie princess. We appreciated the photo updates of the fun and walks and especially that Maggie was washed and clean on pickup after a roll in the sand. We were away for a week and felt assured that she was in good hands, and returned to a happy little dog.
One on one personalized care
I have been a dog lover my entire life and always dreamed of having a dog of my own. That dream became true when we got our dog Shasta three years ago.
Being out in nature is one of my favorite things and so your dog will spend a lot of time exploring Nanaimo's many beautiful parks and beaches with us, rain or shine. If like Shasta, your furry friend prefers more of a calm ...
What Maya would like to know about your dog
Shasta is low energy and prefers dogs with similar personalities. I LOVE puppies, and would be happy to accommodate them. Since Shasta is small, I would prefer smaller dogs so that everybody stays safe. We also do not have space for a large dog in our house and car. I do not really have breed preferences as I believe that any dog can be wonderful regardless of breed. However, I do not have the resources to host aggressive dogs, dogs with a herding instinct, extreme barkers and dogs lacking bite inhibition as well as the wonderful but overly exuberant dogs that might bounce right on top of Shasta and injure her. It is preferred that your dog has some basic manners (come, sit, stay) but I realize that no dog is perfectly behaved all the time.
Before sitting, here is a list of things that I would like to know:
Any known medical conditions and what to do in the case of an emergency
What really annoys your dog (ie. having people touch his food, paws etc.)
What makes your dog happy (belly rubs, favorite stuffies, eating separately)
If your dog is allowed treats (which ones)
Any behavioral issues and how to handle them (barking, pulling etc.)
How much food does your dog eat per day and what kind
How many times your dog needs to go potty per day
Any odd quirks that are unique to your dog!
