About Maria

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I am Maria and I am a student studying Applied Animal Biology at UBC who is in the process of becoming a veterinarian.

My experience working with dogs include owning 1 Pekingese and 4 German Shepherds. I have also taken care of 1 stray dog who lived near my home in China. I have more than three years of experience working and volunteering at various veterinary clinics in Shanghai, China and Vancouver, Canada. My duties in the clinic involve handling dogs, walking them, providing food water and medicine for them, as well as helping out during procedures such as vaccinations, surgery preparation, dental, routine checkups and nail trims. I am experienced with handling dogs small and large, and I can work with dogs with separation anxiety too. I am able to provide oral medications and care for your dog after surgical procedures.

I currently live in a building which is not dog-friendly, so I would love to have the chance to play with and walk your dog. I am able to go on walks, come check in on your dog or stay the night with your dog. There will be lots of fun games and I will make sure your dog gets enough exercise. I look forward to meeting you and your furry friend.

Maria loves animals more than anyone else I know, and she has successfully and responsibly looked after a huge variety of them--from rats, to dogs, to horses. I know that Maria has a huge love for dogs and I am confident that she will be a fantastic sitter.

I was away for a week and Maria took care of my dog very well. She fed him on time and walked him quite a few time during the day, and my dog seem to get along with her very well. Maria is a pet sitter with great care and love for animals.

Maria loves animals! She has rescued many pet rats and whenever I visit her they are always happy and well taken care of. She has also volunteered working with seal pups so she is experienced with animals both large and small. The happiness of animals is her priority and she will always do her best to make any animal feel loved.
Nov 2016
Maria would make a great pet sitter because she will never get tired of dogs, or being with animals in general. There are few things Maria enjoys more than being around dogs, and she does not mind getting her hands dirty to ensure that the dog is well cared for. She once spent a month gaining the trust of a stray dog, and they became best friends.
