About Maria

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

My name is Maria and I have an intense (understatement) love for animals, especially dogs. I've always had dogs in my life and have lots of experience with all types of breeds (from yorkies to malamutes to cane corsos) and characters. I also volunteered at a dog shelter where I got to care for and walk more difficult personalities and fell in love with each one.

I live with my boyfriend (who is also an animal-lover and works remotely) in a pet friendly apartment in Coal Harbour next to the Harbour Green Park. The location is perfect, as it's 10 minutes walk to Stanley Park as well as the Devonian Harbour Dog off-leash area and approximately 20 mins walk to the English Bay beach if your doggy prefers the sand.

Other than animals, we both also really love travelling and understand the importance of feeling that your pet is happy, safe and in great hands while you're away. Without that knowledge, and occasional photo/video updates) it is impossible to enjoy your holiday fully.

I'm more than happy to work with your schedule and accommodate to any preferences or instructions.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I don't think there is more to say than that Maria is the most passionate dog lover I have ever met. She will be genuinely excited to take care of your dog and I am certain that she is loving the concept of dogvacay just for the fact that she can spend more time making more dogs happy!

We used to live in the same apartment building and I miss my go to pet sitter a lot! Maria's love for dogs is evident in the way she takes care of them and I couldn't be happier leaving my precious pup with anyone else when I'm away on business.

Maria is an amazing sitter and walker. She's always very flexible and attentive and sends me updates every few hours (including beautiful photos) and took great care of my two dogs. I could tell they had an amazing time and were exhausted when I picked them up after 2 days. Highly recommended!
