About Marizza

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!
A little bit about myself and my love for animals, (dogs especially)! Growing up, I was never allowed to have pets. Yet, I always seemed to house orphaned strays that I'd find, from baby bunnies to stray kittens my love for animals has never ended. It was so exciting for me when I rescued my first dog, Gizmo! Then my second dog, Oreo. I honestly will say that of all the people I know, that I am definitely the soft hearted type. If I ever won the lottery, I'd have my own NO-KILL, RESCUE Dog shelter with a lot of open land for them to be...DOGS!
Anyway, I nanny Full-Time and have found that I would really like to put my Fridays off and FREE weekends to better use! I often find that housing a dog in my own home, or theirs provides a sense of relief for human-furbaby parents. Being a dog owner myself, I know that for me and my husband that having our pooch cared for at home or in someone else's is a MUST! We are not fans of doggie day cares, but it is what we resort to when there is nobody to call on.
I have cared for all my friends and families dogs (and pets). We (my husband and I) look forward to opening our home up to your furbabies! We live directly across the street from a dog park in Roscoe village, a dog friendly area, which is an added bonus for furbaby visitors in our home! We have a gated back area, so your pooch will be extra safe!! We also share our furniture with furbabies. This is a dog friendly home! Our dog Oreo is great with other dogs too! He loves to play and knows when to give a pooch their space. We love to get outdoors for walks and fresh air, daily!

Marizza and Ted were awesome! Rascal had such a good time with them and their pup Oreo. They sent tons of pics and really made Rascal feel right at home. He can't wait to go back on vacation :)
Marizza was great! She sent frequent updates and photos. Oscar came back happy and tired and can't wait for his next staycation.
Always amazing. Skippy's second family.
Marizza was beyond awesome on all levels: activities, cuddling, caring. Our 11 lb poodle definitely found a second home with her. I'm pretty sure he can't wait to go back.
We are so happy to have found such a great 'favorite aunt' for our Daisy! Marizza sent us regular photos of our pup and what she was up to each day, putting to rest our worries since this was the first time we'd left for so long. Her dog Oreo turned out to be a perfect match for Daisy - they played a lot, and got along really well.

During our last vacay, Daisy came home a different puppy - very clingy and nervous. This time, we came home to our usual happy puppy and it's thanks to Marizza and her loving care - it's clear she loves dogs and will love yours as her own. Will definitely call on her again!
