About Maria & Walther

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! We are a retired couple who have plenty of experience in taking care of both dogs and cats. We primarily speak Spanish but our daughter helps us translate with our clients. By booking your pet's stay with us your pet will receive:

-Lots of TLC and play time from two folks who love dogs and cats
-Around the clock care, as we are home all day
-Pet owner will receive: plenty of updates throughout the day via text/email, and happy to facetime/skype if you like.
-Frequent walks, we have access to a grass area and a nearby park
-Long walks during the day/afternoon time
-Access to the full house, couch and bed included
-Spanish, perfect for those bilingual doggies
-Plenty of space; crates, toys and anything else that will make your pet feel at home are welcomed.

Most recently we have been taking care of our daughter's friends dogs and kitties. We also take frequent care of our grand fur baby when my daughter travels and sometimes leaves him during the day on work days. Our last pet was a kitty named Misha, who we loved so very much. Misha passed away in 2011 and it was a very heartbreaking experience for us, hence why we decided to take care of other's people's pets instead. Overall, taking care of dogs and cats is a very rewarding experience for us.


¡Hola! Somos una pareja de jubilados que tienen mucha experiencia en el cuidado de perros y gatos. Principalmente hablamos Español, pero nuestra hija nos ayuda a traducir con nuestros clientes. Al reservar la estancia de su mascota con nosotros su mascota recibirá:

-Un montón de cariño y tiempo de dos personas que aman a los perros y gatos
- Cudidado las 24 horas, 7 días a la semana, ya que estamos en casa todo el día
- El dueño va a recibir varios mensajes de texto / correo electrónico durante la estadia, y también si gusta podemos FaceTime / Skype.
-Muchos paseos durante el día, tenemos acceso a una zona de césped y un parque cercano
-Acceso a la casa completa, su mascota puede usar el sofá y nuestra cama
-Mucho espacio; cajas, juguetes y cualquier otra cosa que hará que su mascota se sienta como en casa son bienvenidos.

Más recientemente, hemos estado tomando el cuidado de perros y gatitos amigos de nuestra hija. También nos ocupamos frecuente de nuestro nieto perruno cuando mi hija viaja y a veces lo deja durante el día en los días de trabajo. Nuestra última mascota que era una linada gatita llamada Misha. Misha lamentablemente falleció en 2011 y fue una experiencia muy dolorosa para nosotros, por lo tanto, decidimos tomar el cuidado de las mascotas de otras personas. En general, el cuidado de perros y gatos es una experiencia muy gratificante para nosotros.

Walther and Maria are definitely dog lovers! They are retired but still very active. Married for more than 40 years, they both share a love for animals. When you arrive, they will escort you to their very organized, clean and super pup-friendly abode.

Julia, their adult daughter is there with her pup guests and Reggie, Walther and Maria's grandson. My first impression of Walther and Maria is that they have a very kind and very sociable disposition. They speak Spanish and some English, and they plan to care for only two pups at a time to give their guests undivided and careful attention. They walk often for their health, and will bring dogs along for a nice stroll as well. They are cat lovers, too!

Walther and Maria are so excited to meet other pups in Houston and invite them into their dog-friendly and loving home where pups can relax on furniture and beds. So excited to have them as part of the DogVacay community of hosts!
Maria & Walther are dependable. Respond to email/text promptly. Zoey receives lots of love & attention when I drop her off and she is just as content when I pick her up.
Maria and Walther are the most amazing people I've ever met. The day I met I took my dogs so they could meet them. They started playing with them immediately. They gave me peace of mind. They would constantly send pictures and videos of my fur babies. Every time, I would text me they would respond immediately. The dogs looked very happy on the videos. I would highly recommend Maria and Walther. I wouldn't think twice on leaving my babies with them again. I finally found good people that really care for dogs. They would even let the dogs sleep with them on the bed. I also like that they don't take care of multiple dogs at the same time.
Maria and Walther took great care of Phoebe and regularly sent photos and videos during her stay. They even arranged a play date for her. She was well taken care of and we will definitely use them again.
