About Merette

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a full time, at home writer. I am very lucky to have flexible hours and provide my own dog with a lot of outdoor time, bathroom breaks and exercise. He gets along great with other dogs and loves having a pal around! We often have other dogs visit (pit bull, a cream retriever, Yorkie, Alaskan Malamute) all with no problems! I formerly worked at an "all dog" pet store where we had puppies as young as 10 weeks come in and we had to provide constant care. I have been surrounded by dogs my whole life, pet sit for my family, and we bring our little guy Wilson, everywhere.

A typical day would start with food, a walk and perhaps a trip to the dog park. I work for a few hours while Wilson plays or sleeps off his morning run. Then we head out again for another walk mid afternoon, and another short one in the evening.

I assure you your dog will feel right at home and get nothing but love! :)

First of all, I love Merette. I am a very serious person on whom I allow to watch my 5 year old bluenose. Merette is top 5 doggy babysitter on my list. She'd be number 1, but I don't live as close as I'd like to her. I 100% vouch for her responsible manner and KNOW she would be a great sitter for any canine.

My sister Merette would be the perfect fit for a job like this. Merette is amazing with animals, dogs in particular because she loves them so much! She has a dog that is well trained and extremely friendly, and she is someone I always ask to watch/dog sit my pup when I am going away. Never once do I feel worried when my dog is under her supervision. She shows them love and affection while being able to appropriately discipline when needed. She also lives in a cute safe neighborhood, only minutes walking distance from the local dog park! I would definitely recommend her for dogvacay.

Merette is the definition of an animal lover. Every animal finds a way into her heart and it's apparent in the connection she makes, I have seen this with every dog she has cared for, whether it's her own, family, friend, or aquaintance. She pours her heart and soul into everything she does, and caring for dogs is one of them! Most importantly, she is reliable and trustworthy, and will take care of your pet like it's her own!

Merette is one of those special people in life that, when you get a chance to spend time with her, your life is that much better for it. I've never seen someone love and relate to animals the way she does. Whether it's her own dog, a stranger's pet on the street, or a ladybug on the back deck, her respect for and treatment of all animals is unparalleled.

Merette was an excellent fit for my dog, who is very neurotic and needs that little extra attention. She has a very sweet and playful dog that made for a fun experience for my dog! Would recommend to anyone whose pet needs a little extra attention and care.
