About Maria

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Im Maria, my roommate is a teacher and I'm a case work supervisor. I have had dogs for most of my life and I was usually the person who bathed them, dried their hair, trimmed their hair, walked them, cleaned up after them, played with them and slept with them near by. I am a huge dog lover, so is my roommate, unfortunately due to limited funds, pets are difficult for us to have permanently.

Our apartment is very cozy, and has a small yard in back for tenants to use, we are in a quiet neighborhood and a lot of dog owners are in the area. We live by Van Courtlandt park as well lots of play room and space. We get lots of sunlight in our home and we never have loud music or noises on. Most days I go to work late mornings and will walk dogs (when I sit for friends and family) before I leave and my roommate likes to walk them in the morning as well since she gets up much earlier than me, she also walks them when she arrives home and makes sure there's food and fresh water for them. I walk them in the evening when I am home and before bedtime, in between some play time with toys or running around and jumping if they are in the mood.

We are very laid back and have older, antique furniture so pets don't bother us at all. We have a Petco nearby if we ever need some supplies or assistance with the dogs and we have emergency contact information for vets in the community. I enjoy having dogs sleep in the room or living room on their doggy bed or on the couch, but not on the bed.

Unfortunately we cannot have dogs larger than 50 lbs in the building and we prefer dogs that are hypoallergenic of course. We are okay with dogs that bark a lot but prefer ones that also are okay with hearing people walk by in a hallway without going too hysterical. We look forward to meeting!

I want to keep Maria all to myself, but she is too awesome not to tell others. My dog, Prince was with her for a weekend while I vacationed, and I think he had more fun than I did. She sent me pictures and videos everyday and I couldn't be happier with all she did with him all weekend. I will definitely be using her again! What a great find!
Maria was so amazing with our puppies that we booked her 2 weekends in a row. She kept me updated and was very flexible when we arrived later than expected and picked the up earlier than expected. I will definitely use her again!
I highly recommend Maria! Radar had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed all the attention. Maria was flexible with our pick-up-drop-off times and it all worked out perfectly!
Maria was the perfect sitter for my 2 year old Bella during an extended labor day getaway. It is evident that she is a dog lover. Maria was very accommodating when I had to extend the stay an additional day and she sent numerous pictures throughout the week. I would definitely recommend her and plan on making her my go-to sitter in the future.
I highly recommend Maria! She took care of Macy for five days and gave her so much love and attention. She asked many questions to make sure she knew everything about our dog. And she sent lots of sweet pictures to let us know that all was well. I would definitely send Macy there for another vacay.
