About Maria

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I will love your dog like my own. They will have lots of fun. I've had pets of all kinds my entire life. I currently own a male pit bull. He is fixed. He is very playful. We take him to the dog park to play with other dogs often but with a dog boarding gig he will be able to make lots of friends right at home. Look forwarded to meeting you and your pet soon!

Maria was such a great host. She took Sticks in last minute and did a wonderful job. She sent pics and videos, which made everything much better. I'd definitely use her again in the near future.
Maria was excellent with my dog, Maximus. I enjoyed receiving the photos, and judging from the way he came home and relaxed, Maximus had a fun and active time. Thanks Maria!
We will definitely use Maria's services again. The dogs had fun, she sent pictures and updates, and she kept us well-informed. They were bathed and happy when we picked them up. When we are in Richmond we will definitely reserve Maria again.
Maria was so great to take both of our pups over the holidays. She took really great care of them. Maria's house is big enough for everyone with a fenced yard. Everything is so clean. The pictures of the pups that she sent us were so cute! She even gave the little princess a cartoon princess crown so I know she got to know them pretty well. They got to play in the mud (which they love) and afterwards they got baths. When we picked them up, they smelled clean and fresh and she had even washed their blankets! I expect they will want to go back when we are next in Richmond.
Maria was awesome! Seriously so great. Prior to the visit she was so quick and easy to communicate with. We did a meet n greet first and then booked with her. Her home is perfect for watching dogs, so nice and big. During the stay she texted everyday with updates and sent lots of photos. She made us feel so comfortable leaving our dog with her. This was our first time using this app and Maria was our first sitter and we will continue to book with her. I highly recommend anyone to book with Maria. Your dog will be in great hands and you'll feel as if you're with them the whole visit!
I was very grateful that she accepted the reservation on the same day I needed to drop my lil pup off. I was experiencing some unexpected challenges right before the Thanksgiving holidays and my options were running out. However, Maria seemed to be just the right host for my energetic puppy, Sassy. I received pictures and updates which I really appreciated while being away. Plus, my dog seemed to really enjoy it.
Available for us during short notice. She sent me pictures and videos!! Very good experience
Maria and her family did a great job with my pup! I received pics during her stay, and she appeared to be very happy throughout. Maria's pup was very friendly and playful which was great because my pup (Olive) has A LOT of energy. Olive was very excited and happy when I arrived to pick her up and that's always a good sign. I will definitely be using Maria's services in the future!
I have to say Maria was amazing! I am a new pet parent, and had to find somewhere for my fur baby to go while we had some work done in our apartment. I was apprehensive to say the least! Maria answered all of my questions, and was super accommodating, especially since I waited until last minute to book her. WILE E (my dog) can be a bit of a handful (Terrier/ collie mix). He has infinite energy and is a bit mischevious. When I picked him up this evening he was happy and enjoying his time with Lynn. Wile E was so quiet on the ride home I had to double check if he was actually in my back seat. He is completely wore out from playing with his new friends! I will definitely be taking Wile E back to visit Maria! You can tell she loves the dogs! Thank you so much! I just can't say enough about how amazing she is!!
