About Maria

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My heart and home are open to furry friends that are in need of a place to rest their heads while parents are out of town.

As mommy to Jack & Colby, I know how important it is to have a comfortable and loving home for your dog while you are away. I'm of the "they go where I go" mindset which means dogs are welcome on the furniture and we all curl up at night together in bed :)

I have a private yard with lots of room for running around. Extra perks include homemade chicken treats and I also have web cams to keep an eye on the pups when I step away from the house.

Availability: weekends 24/7. Please check my calendar for open weekends. Weekdays upon request. Please message me for more information about weekday overnights.

Please note, I believe in positive reinforcement & training and will not implement negative reinforcement techniques on your dog including prong collars.

Puppies are considered on a case by case basis.

Our 215 lb English mastiff calls this his home away from home. Maria is the best! She stays in touch with photos and videos and is very flexible for pickup and dropoff timing. Her backyard is great because it's fenced in and the dogs can play safetly. She will love your pup and take the best care of them!

Maria is fantastic! I felt completely at ease when I left my two Yorkie mixes with her. She has a lot of experience with dogs, and knew how to socialize my dogs with her dogs so well. I have a lot of confidence in her and will surely use her services again.

Maria was awesome!!! I can't say enough positive things about her and how well she took care of my girl Tilly. The pictures and videos she sent were so great and it looked like Tilly had a blast. She was tired when I took her home and passed out the rest of the evening. I will definitely be using Maria again, I think Tilly found her a new home when I have to travel.

Maria and her two pup house-mates (Colby and Jack) were awesome hosts! Our meet and greet reassured me that my dog would be comfortable and well cared for. I then brought him over for daycare, and indeed he had a great time! Maria sent me a lovely photo of him hanging out on the porch with a big grin on his face! He also came home tired and ready for a nap. Success!

Maria cares about her doggy guests as if they were her own. She sends pictures and updates to make you feel like you're with you pup, even when you're not. She goes out of her way to make sure you and your 4-legged friend have everything they need. Book Maria, you will be pleased.

Maria is simply amazing! She is an awesome human being and you can tell she loves all pups! So glad I found her :)
Maria was great! She provided lots of updates and I could tell Larry had an amazing time.
Maria was great. Very friendly and responsive. She was also flexible on pick up (even went out of her way to help us out for pick up) and drop off times and sent numerous picture and video updates. Highly recommended!
Our pup had the best vaca at Maria's. She sent daily updates with photos and videos, was flexible with drop off/pickup hours and even makes her own doggie treats. Her backyard is awesome, fenced in and pet friendly. She loves her visitors and treats them like they are her own pups. Knowing that our pup was in loving hands made our trip so much better. 5 stars!!!

Happy home, happy dogs!

Comfy dog beds everywhere, lots of toys, and the amazing Maria. For her, it's no big deal, and she's happy to have our dog staying with her.

For us, it's a big deal - we appreciate the peace of mind, knowing that our girl is not just in good hands, but is happy and relaxed. And, we get pictures and video!

Maria was fantastic with our 4 month old puppy, Lily! She had so much fun and was as happy as can be when she was picked up! We will definitely be keeping Maria in mind if we are going away and dogs aren't welcome! Thanks again Maria :)
Maria was AWESOME! She sent us pictures/videos and updates every couple hours. She was flexible with pick up/drop off hours and she gave my dog, Luke lots of love and attention. I would definitely leave Luke again with Maria on our next trip!
Maria is AMAZING! She is a true dog-lover and really treats your dog as her own, which is so comforting when leaving your pet with someone else. We received numerous text, photo, and video updates throughout the stay. She is very flexible and accommodating when it comes to scheduling and her location is absolutely perfect for any type of dog! As very crazy dog parents we highly recommend her - which is truly something special! Will be using Maria as much as her schedule will allow :)

We contacted Maria very last minute in need of day care services. She was very responsive and we were very relieved to have found a responsible and dog-loving pet sitter for our dogs. They had a blast playing in her backyard and slept all day when we got home. Would definitely recommend her!

Maria and her dogs were fantastic. Maria was a wonderful host, and she did a amazing dog watching our dog. We had a meet up before hand to meet her and her dogs and she put us at ease. Our dog had a great time, and we would definitely reach out to Maria in the future!

Kona had such a fun time with Maria and her pups! Maria made everything very easy for us and put my mind at ease when Kona stayed overnight. She also sent updates which was nice. We will definitely plan for another overnight with Maria.
Maria is simply fantastic. She really went above and beyond to make sure Garnet would be comfortable, both before as well as during her stay. She also sent updates throughout the evening. It is so nice to find true animal lovers who I trust to take care of my girl when necessary.

Our Dog Skip had a good time with maria. She's very caring and attentive. I would not hesitate to request she waatch Skip in the future.
We left our baby Monty with Maria for 4 days during our wedding, and we are happy that we did. Maria welcomed Monty into her home and helped ease his anxiety with a lot of love and care. We received text message and video updates showing Monty playing with Jack (her dog) and another dog (Penny) who was staying at her home. Monty looked very happy and had so much fun the whole time we were gone. There is no doubt that we will be leaving Monty with Maria again, and I know Monty will be looking forward to it!

Maria was really wonderful. She was a pleasure to work with, flexible on pick up and drop off times, and clearly a true "dog person." She sent me lots of text updates with photos and videos, and I could tell that Penny was having the time of her life! Penny had an absolute blast running (zooming) around Maria's large, safely fenced yard, playing and snuggling (major snuggling) with Maria's resident dog, Jack, and another guest, Monty. Maria kept my Penny safe, happy, and comfortable the whole time, and I would absolutely go to her again!

We left our puppy Penny with Maria for a long weekend, and we are so happy we did. Maria opened her home to Penny, and was the best host we could have asked for. She sent video updates showing Penny running around her fenced in backyard and playing with Maria's dog Jack. Penny looked so happy and had so much fun the whole time we were gone. We wouldn't hesitate to leave Penny with Maria again, and I know Penny can't wait for us to also!

Maria was the best! Her daily updates and videos were great. She was so welcoming when I brought Gabby to her home, she was comfortable so quickly. She really paid attention to Gabby, spent time with her, and made sure that we were taken care of too by keeping us updated on her vacation! I would leave Gabby with Maria again in a heartbeat, no hesitation.

The boys had another fantastic stay with Maria. I'm sure I miss them more than they miss me. In fact, they probably don't even know I'm gone. Maria's is a total playtime paradise for my boys.
My pups love visiting Maria and Jack. They always have so much fun. They get to play out side and sunbathe on the deck. And best of all, the come home tired from playing and ready for a nap :)
Maria was an incredible sitter for our pitbull, Calvin. He has quite a few medical issues and is on multiple meds, which Maria had no problem administering and caring for our pup. We received daily updates and I know that Calvin loved being there. Maria took care of Calvin for a week while we were on vacation a few hours away. We are planning an international trip in May and we wouldn't think of trusting Calvin with anyone else but Maria.

Maria was absolutely incredible and went above and beyond in every way. She actually experienced a terrible family loss while watching our puppies and yet she still provided them with the most incredible care. We recommend her to everyone and will absolutely work with her again.

Maria was extremely accommodating and gave just as much care to Umka as if he was her own dog. I'm very pleased and would not hesitate to book another vacation again and I recommend anyone to do the same. Her home is a wonderful environment for any dog and Umka especially liked her homemade chicken treats. Pawsome!

So glad I found Maria. She was able to accommodate my dogs on very short notice over a holiday weekend and they had such a great time! She kept in contact with me through the stay and even provided a little activity report of their day to day when I picked the dogs up. They got to play in the backyard, hang around the house, and chill on the couch. I would highly recommend her.

Maria was amazing. We have an extremely energetic dog, and she took him to the dog park and kept him tired all weekend. We got photos and updates the whole time. She is the best.
