About Marissa

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs and have a beagle of my own who loves company. We usually go on a walk in the morning and there is lots of room to play outside in the yard. Trips to the dog park can also be arranged. I am currently working full time so my mother watches dogs during the morning hours and I take over during the afternoon/evening. I want your dog to be happy, healthy and safe!

I left my dog with Marissa and her family for three weeks while I was out of the country. I am only basing my review of the information I got from the person picking him up and dropping him off. I did the initial meet and greet with Marissa and her mother and brother.

To be clear I am believing that you are leaving your dog with the family not just Marissa. I think she works during the day and will watch the dog at night when she is home.

I was told he seemed happy to be there and happy to see them each week.

The home is clean and the backyard is big and fenced in well. I felt comfortable that he would be safe there.

He was fed and well cared for from what I can tell.

I think Marissa and her family did a nice job with my dog. I do think that they need to convey that other family members will watch your dog while she is at work.
I have had Marissa as a dog sitter a few times now and each time it has been really good. When I bring my dog over he is excited to be there. He comes home happy and like he has been playing all day.
I am so happy to have found Marissa and her family! They were very welcoming to Dory and I felt safe leaving her there. They are dog lovers and I knew she would be in good hands. Dory will definitely be a returning guest!
Once again, my dog Tyson had a great time at Marissa's. I feel comfortable knowing someone is always home when he is there. Her dog Abbey is very mellow and gets along with my dog well. I'll be reserving Marissa's services again soon for my next vacation away.
Thanks again Marissa for taking care of my 3 dogs for a week. I always have peace of mind when I'm traveling because I know they are in good loving hands. See you next time.
Great experience! I never worried once about my dogs' well being. Maria, Enrique, Daniel and Marissa are a wonderful loving family. I highly recommend them as dog sitters.
Marissa and her family were so great with our dog. She is very active and they were able to keep up with her crazy personality. They were very accommodating with our flight schedule for our trip. Our dog will be staying with Marissa again and we know she will be in good hands.
My 7 month old Yorkie 'Tyson' had a great time with Marissa and her dog Abbey for 7 days while I vacationed in Jamaica. I can tell he was well cared for and treated like an extended member of the family while I was away. It was comforting when I left him to know that he was going to be in such a clean home with Marissa and her family. I could tell from our first meeting that this would be a good place to leave my pooch. I've left him in a kennel for just a few days prior to this and a home environment such as Marissa's was a much better choice. I can tell my dog was much happier when I picked him up. Thanks again Marissa! I'm sure we will look for Tyson to stay again should I need to be away.
Our Londie was soooooo happy and so well cared for while staying with Marissa and her family. And Marissa is very accommodating with our schedules. We will definitely return.
Very nice. Helped our dog relax and the picture updates were very appreciated. Would definitely recommend and look forward to having out dog stay again. Thanks Marrissa.
Marissa and her family was yet again great when they cared for our two beagles last weekend. They are always so nice and kind. Best of all our dogs come home completely and utterly exhausted. What can you ask for? Thanks again Marissa!
Marissa and her family took great care of Doug! Thank you so much!
I left my three dogs with Marissa for 8 days and nights and again was so pleased and thankful that she was available to take care of them. She sent me a picture and update of them while I was in Jamaica. I never had to worry about them because I knew they were in good hands. Marissa has an older Beagle named Abby. Everyone gets along well. And I swear, I saw a smile on Sandy's face when I brought him over and dropped him off. I think he was happy to be there. ;~)
Gatsby had another great stay with Marissa! She was flexible and responded quickly to my requests. Gatsby has a great time at her house.
She was easy and flexible to work with and my dog Gatsby had a great time!
Marissa and her family are extremely accommodating. It shows they are caring and love dogs. Our Pebbles & Bam Bam had a lot of fun with their dear Abby and was exhausted when they got home! We'll sure to have Marissa care for our dogs again the next time we are going out of town.

Thanks Marissa!
The whole family, Marissa, her mom and brother were very nice. Our dog Toby liked their resident dog Abby and wanted to play with her as soon as they met. We could leave Toby without any concern.
Marissa took care of my three dogs for the weekend. I was glad to receive the pix of her walking my dogs, all three, which I know can be a challenge. She was kind, gracious, loving to my dogs. And her 7 year old beagle, Abby, was also accommodating and friendly to my dogs. Thanks, Marissa, I hope to see you again! And thanks to her mom, Maria, who also made my dogs feel like this was truly "a home away from home." ;~)
She's awesome!! Took care of our two Danes with perfection.
