I am married with 2 adult sons and our loveable female Havanese Riley. I am retired and have always loved animals and pet care is something I have always wanted to try. I believe I have a knack for looking after and communicating with animals, especially dogs.
Since our marriage in 1987, we have owned 3 dogs previously (2 shelties and a shih tzu) and now our Riley. All 4 dogs were trained by me and have always been considered part of the family. I trained them to be socialized and to be well-adjusted so that we could take them anywhere. We take our dog everywhere with us on camping trips in our trailer, on weekends away, bike riding etc. In fact, Bailey, our shih tzu, camped with us in a tent and in all three of our trailers during his lifetime. We have also looked after other family dogs for short periods of time. We have a pretty big fenced in back yard and a park with a dog park close by. Our house is a single dwelling with a basement, main floor and upper floor. It sits on a quiet street and is ideal for walking a dog. The neighborhood is very pet friendly. I am interested in short-term boarding for one dog at a time. Your dog will be part of our family for that time and will be included in our family activities, whenever possible.
Since I am home full time, I can offer 2 walks a day of up to 1 hour each. This will vary depending on the needs of each dog. Your dog can sleep either downstairs or in our room (depending on where it is used to sleeping).
Maria is a gem!!! We left our 12-year old dog small dog with her for three weeks while we were on vacation. We could not have been happier with our choice of sitter!!!
Maria kept us updated daily, with photos and messages through the PawShake platform. Our dog has some dietary restrictions and Maria provided care beyond our expectations.
I highly recommend Maria to anyone looking for a temporary home for their dog.
This is the second time I'm using her service, my girls love her and are very happy and comfortable at her place, thank you Maria!
