About Maya

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Mi casa es your dog's casa. Sleep on the sofa, hang out in the kitchen, chill in the sun. Fur, drool and muddy paws welcome here!

We'll ride off in the sunset, walk leisurely on the shore, smell bushes, pee on hydrants, do everything your dogheart desires! And you'll get lots of love and cuddles from me.

I have shared my house and heart with animals since childhood. I've had dogs (sometimes multiple dogs at a time), cats (also several simultaneously), birds, fish, guinea pigs and rabbits. We even had a pet deer at one time. I'm a little squeamish about reptiles, though.

Your furbaby is going to be my furbaby under my care. And that's a promise!

Maya genuinely cares for all domestic and stray animals that she rescues. She enjoys walking, playing, housing and communicating with her dog and will be a wonderful caregiver for your family pet. I know that Maya will be one of the best human dog caregiver to contact. I've rescued cats and dogs for so many years and it takes compassion and connection with domestic and non domestic animals and this Maya possess.

Maya is the Dog Caregiver to contact.

I have known Maya for at least three decades and can vouch that she is remarkable in caring for all pets and is a true animal lover - there is no one with a bigger heart and I believe all animals can sense this and seek her out. There have been so many strays that find their way to her!

I remember an incident when Maya rescued an abandoned dog that was wandering the streets. Maya was on her way home when she first saw the shy dog that had no collar and noticed that it was limping. Upon inspection, she found that the poor dog's pads were raw and bleeding. Well, Maya carried the 50lb dog four blocks home, Where she got the strength to do so is a miracle. Why the dog put his trust in her is divine intervention.

Maya has a take-charge attitude that dogs appreciate. But she also exudes warmth and love toward all creatures - she did an internship at the Oakland Zoo! Additionally, she is well-read and well-informed about pet behaviors.

I have worked with and become a friend to Maya Walker for 20 years. In all of these years Maya has shown a tremendous love of animals. She has taken in, love and nurtured stray dogs and cats. Any time I visited Maya she was caring for dogs and cats. Her heart and soul was in caring for animals. She is the quintessential dog whisperer. I don't think Maya could really live without animals. She gets involved with animal rights and is constantly on the lookout for all things that make for a better life for her animals. She live and breathes in the love of caring for dogs and cats. I highly recommend Maya as a caregiver for dogs and cats. You can rest assure your dog or cat will be well taken care of and loved I conditionally.

Maya was awesome!! We needed someone to take care of our Tofu over the holidays and Maya was everything we were looking for. Her place is huge! She has a big front and backyard that is a perfect dog oasis. If your dog is high-energy like ours, having lots of space makes a difference.

Maya sent us pictures and videos every day. She is easy to communicate with. Maya is very knowledgeable about dog behavior and did not interpret Tofu's playfulness as aggressive, as most people do. I felt 100% confident that Tofu was in good hands.

Maya's dog, Cash, is so cute and friendly. I can tell Tofu really misses them. I highly recommend Maya and we will definitely book with her for our next vacation.
Leaving Kysa with Maya and her dog Cash for 8 days was definitely a great decision on our part! We turned to DogVacay after multiple experiences with pet boarding centers where she was left in a cage all day, only to come out dehydrated and smelly.

With Maya she got to play with her dog Cash and other dogs who came to board with Maya and she was completely cage-free! She received lots of love and care and we even got videos and pictures every day to update us on Kysa! To top it off, Maya even gave us some recommendations to help with Kysa's eating schedule which was very nice because we were having problems with that. It just goes to show how much experience she has with dogs, giving us more peace of mind with our decision!

Thank you Maya, we will definitely be returning!
Maya was great in caring for our English Bull Terrier, Scrappy while we were away on Thanksgiving vacation. She sent us updates and pictures and really spoiled Scrappy! Her gentle dog Cash was an absolute perfect fit for our rambunctious Scrappy. They were good buddies! We would definitely recommend her to anyone and will be contacting her again!
