Hello! My name is Mairin and I am here to provide your dog with the care and attention he/she deserves while you are away. I work from home so I will be with your dog 24/7.
Unfortunately I am not able to accept puppies (younger than 2 years), large dogs (over 40-50 pounds), or dogs with special needs (such as diapering or serious allergies), but I am happy to administer oral or topical medications if needed.
I grew up taking care of dogs and cats (often bringing in rescues much to my parents' surprise) and have volunteered with animal rescue organizations to spay/neuter dogs and cats and find them loving homes. I have also ridden and owned horses my whole life and traveled all over the world to see endangered species in the wild. My fiancee Pat and I recently moved to San Diego for the Navy and love being able to spend so much time outdoors with our own dog.
My house and schedule:
We live in a gated community and our townhouse has 1500 sq ft for your dog to find his/her own spot to hang out. We also have a fully fenced back yard area with astro-turf. Because I work from home and have a flexible schedule, I am able to leave the door open all day so dogs can go in and out as they please. Our townhouse backs up to the Famosa Slough where I can take your dog on walks multiple times a day, and we live less than a mile from the Dusty Rhodes Dog Park and Ocean Beach Dog Park.
Other Pets in the Home:
I have a small (20 lb.) rescue dog of my own named Lucy. She loves the company of other dogs but I can also keep her separate from your dog if you'd like.
I am happy to feed whatever food and medications your dog requires (I am very familiar with feeding medications, as I have had several pets with special needs).
I understand how stressful it can be to find the right 'boarding' situation for your dog while you're away, and I'm here to give you the peace of mind that your dog will be happy, healthy and comfortable during his stay with us.
