About Maria

Welcome to Licks&Hugs!
It will be a pleasure for me to look after your dog. I am a stay-at-home mom that loves to spend time playing with and walking our four-legged friends. Since my youth I have cared for many different breeds of dogs.
My home is ideally located; we back onto a large park and there's a long trail just across the street. I will take your dog for three walks daily and they will have plenty of playtime in our backyard and in our home.
Please schedule a meet-and-greet so that I can get to know more about your pet needs.
For safety reasons I will only accept well-tempered, spayed/neutered dogs.

Maria is Amazing. I trust her with my dog and my dog enjoys going to her house.
Amazing experience as always.
Tyce had a great stay with Maria & her family in Dec 2016. We are so happy with her care that we booked her for 4 more stays between Jan to April 2017. Our daughter is in sports tournaments so we are away every month and it is so comforting to us to know that Tyce will be well looked after while we travel. Maria always sends updates daily and photos. Tyce gets lots of walks outside and lots of social play time - he always comes home tired & calm.
As per usual Tyce had a great stay at Maria's house. He loves it there, goes in happy and comes home happy. He has lots of exercise there and is usually very tired and calm when he comes home. Tyce goes to Maria's at least once a month and we are always very happy with the care.
Maria obviously loves taking care of dogs, and sends beautiful pics to keep me up to date with what my Bobbi's doing in the day. Bobbi is always excited to be dropped off.
Tyce had another great stay with Maria & family. He happily goes to Maria & receives lots of love & exercise. He came home happy & tired! Maria sent updates and photos of Tyce while we were away. He ate well & slept well without any issues. We are looking forward to Tyce's next stay with Maria next month.
Maria and her family went above and beyond caring for Charlie! She treated our dog as if it was her own, and Charlie took to her immediately. We are extremely lucky to have found such an excellent pet sitter!!! Thanks Maria! Charlie will return.

Thank you, Maria for your care of our puppy. You were very attentive to our needs, very kind and nurturing to our dog. He and us were so comfortable throughout every step of the way.
Maria took great care of Krypto. We loved getting all the pics and updates. It really put us at ease knowing our precious puppy was getting lots of love and attention. Not to mention she slept all the next day truly exhausted from all the fun she had with Maria.
We booked Maria at the last minute for 1 day of dog sitting and she was kind enough to help us out. Maria was nice and gentle with our new rescue who still feels sensitive and unsure most of the time in new situations. When our dog is anxious, she does nor pee or eat but I was surprised to learn from Maria that she had done both while she was there. She has a friendly dog to keep your company during the day and spent some time running around Maria's beautiful big backyard.
I would definitely use Maria to dog sit again!
Thank you so much!! Maria and her family take care of my little puppy Lambo like her own family member!! Lambo was so happy and will love to go again!! Thank you Maria!!
Amazing .....
We are so thankful that we have found such a great family to take care of Tito. Thank you Maria
Tyce had a great stay with Maria and her family, he was drawn to Maria right away during our meet-n-greet. Tyce was kept on his own routine and had lots of exercise outside, which he loves. Tyce usually sleeps in his crate at home, but cried the first night - so Maria stayed with him on the couch to settle him and then kept him upstairs on his bed the second night. He settled right back into normal routine once at home. We received lots of great photos and updates daily. Tyce will be staying with Maria again next time we travel as we can tell how much he enjoyed it there. Her daughter also figured out all the tricks that Tyce can do & had fun with him.
Thank you so much for being a great host to Luigi. He had a great time :)
We felt very comfortable leaving our little Mika with Maria overnight.  It was the first time we ever left her and we were worried but Maria and her family are very caring and Mika seemed to be pretty happy.  I am sure Maria had to be patient at times as our pup is still learning...  Maria always responded to our texts immediately and sent us updates and pictures during her time with Mika.  We were happy and will absolutely go back!  Thanks Maria and family!!!
Maria and her family did a great job taking care of Max. She sent pictures and commentary around his day during his time with her. I would recommend Maria 100% and so would Max!!
Maria was absolutely wonderful with my pups. She was able to pick them up and drop them off at my desired time. It was a huge help! She sent me pictures and updates all weekend! Would recommend her services in a heartbeat!
We were so pleased with Maria. We received daily pictures, videos and updates while away. Our dog Jersey was welcomed into their family and was very content. We will definitely have Jersey stay with Maria again!
Maria and her family provide tender loving care everytime Otis stays at their place. She sends me daily updates which puts our mind at ease. She follows his schedule to a tee. It's otis' second family...thank you Maria and your family for taking such good care of Otis. Till next time :)
Maria was an excellent host for our dog, Bentley! Our dog is a 14 month old male golden retriever and he has not been away from home overnight many times in the past. Maria met with us and Bentley ahead of our reservation and we immediately felt very comfortable. She provided us with pictures of our dog during our night away and he seemed to be having a great time. There was a yard that he played in and they took him for several walks. We highly recommend Maria and her family to anyone in the area needing a dog sitter! We are from out of town but will definitely use her again if we visit! Thanks.
This was the first time I have ever used Dogvacay while we've been away and it was the most calming experience we have ever had. Maria and her family took care of our 11 year dog the same way we do. She followed his daily routine to a tee...including his various daily She emailed me pictures and also gave me daily updates. We will definately use Maria and her family again....our dog Otis has found a second family.
Thank you so much Maria.
