Dog Walking

Mary did a fantastic job responding and taking care of our large dog. She walked her and checked on her food and water needs. We would definitely hire her again.

Pet Sitting

Mary was a gem, updated me with each visit and my dogs clearly loved her! I had to return early due to unexpected travel restrictions and Mary as very flexible in sorting this out.

Dog Walking

My dogs are both rescues and have some issues- Mary was patient, knowledgeable, and reliable. Now that they both dogs are happy to see her - not an easy task! She wrote detailed messages each day and sent pictures - so nice to see when I was at work! I definitely recommend her.

Pet Sitting

Mary was extremely helpful with my two pups for a weekend getaway. She fed, walked, and spent time with my pups, gave me a breakdown of each visit by my preferred communication method (text), and sent me pics of them happy and playful or on walks. I came back to happy satisfied pups and I will definitely call upon her again for our next getaway!

This includes my presence from about 7 at night to 7 in the morning (though these times can be tailored to your needs), and the evening and morning feeding, walking and specific routines we decide on. Midday walks and visits are charged at the regular price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We can talk on the phone. If you want to proceed, we set up a no-cost meet-and-greet with you and your dog or cat and owners. It's a chance to ask questions and get to know one another. If it's a good fit, then we can make arrangements for the pet sitting or dog walking, including times, payment and instructions.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a lifelong dog owner. Through friends and family, I've been around cats all my life. I have been doing pet sitting and dog walking as a business for 3 years. I am insured through Pet Sitters Associates and I'm certified in pet CPR and first aid.
