About Maria

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Send your dog on vacay while you're away. We're great hosts! We take an average of five walks a day and stop in at the dog park for at least an hour every afternoon. We love to exercise, socialize, and play games. Of course, we love going to the beach. So give us a try. We'll even update you with great pics of all the fun stuff we're doing.

Midday is here, time to go out and play! Oh no, you're at work or not at home and your furry friend needs to get some exercise. No problem. We can help! Boss and I go out every afternoon. We're great guides! We go out for an average of two hours every afternoon. We walk around town. We hit the marina. We go to the beach. We go to the dog park and hang out with our doggy friends. We are living the life! And we want to share it with your dog. Let us pick up your pup and bring your pal along to alleviate the midday doldrums.

In town with your best pal but can't take him/her to a meeting or to dinner or to Disneyland? Your pup can hang out with us. We're great sitters! Whether it's all day or just hanging out for a couple of hours, we can entertain and sooth your buddy until you get back. So try us. We'll even send you updates and photos to entertain you, too!

* Dogs must be neutered/spayed. Sorry, no exceptions.
** Dogs must be house trained. No exceptions.

We would give her 50 stars if we could. I don't think Henna had had this much fun in a whilllle. Maria is responsible, flexible and super sweet. We can't thank her enough for being such a dependable auntie for Henna.
I am a brand new dog owner and this was my first weekend away from my new shelter dog Wrigley (a 2 yr old dachshund/terrier.) Maria was so great in letting us come by for a meet-and-greet! She and her amazingly sweet dog Boss came to meet us and letting us come by for a meet-and-greet! She and her amazingly sweet dog Boss came to meet us and led us up to her home. She showed me where she works, where they can sleep and encouraged Boss and Wrigley to play. I was immediately at ease and when I dropped Wrigley off a few days later, had no qualms about enjoying the weekend! Maria sent pics and videos of Wrigley and Boss playing at home, going to the dog park etc. Wrigley is a funny little girl and not super playful (affectionate but not playful!) Maria and Boss had her frolicking with the best of them! She seemed happy and healthy and to be honest, I felt a little guilty taking her away from her new friends! Thank you Maria for taking such good care of Wrigley!

Maria recently watched our Bouvier more than once and we can not say enough great things about her!! We are new to the area and needed a sitter last minute. She was extremely accommodating. Our pup, Batman, had a wonderful time. Maria took him to minute. She was extremely accommodating. Our pup, Batman, had a wonderful time. Maria took him to more places in Long Beach than we have been to ourselves. She kept us updated and sent pictures and videos everyday. We areIncredibly happy with Maria and the upmost care she provides! We highly recommended her
