About Maria Jose

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Maria, I'm 25 years old. I have had pets since I was a little kid and have taken care of them since then. I have always loved animals and now that I'm grown up I realized that being around animals, help them and taking care of them is what makes me happy the most, that's why I‘m currently pursuing my certificate on Professional Pet Groomer and have plans to become a Dog trainer too! I have volunteered in animal shelters, cleaning cages, feeding, exercising dogs and in adoption events. I have a cute Maltipoo female puppy that is very friendly and playful.

I would love to take care of your precious pup, more than a job, it would be a pleasure to have them in my home, and I would appreciate you could give me the opportunity to show you how much I love dogs and how well I take care of them, you won't regret it.

While your pup is under my care he/she will have 24/7 supervision and will receive so much love, hugs and kisses. I administer any pet medications and adapt to any request or special food needs for your pup. He/she will be walked 3-4 times a day(weather permitting), we will have trips to the park, walks by the river, and trips to the lake, playtime at the dog park or in my living room aka Playroom! We can also schedule a Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangout so you can see how your pup is doing and how much fun is having. I will also send you pictures and videos everyday via DogVacay app, text or email. My home is equipped with a Motorola Scout Pet Video Camera that allows me to monitor the pups while I’m not at home.

As well as boarding, your pup will be well taken care of, you can bring food for the day. He/she will receive 3-4 walks through the day and tons of playtime.

I offer convenient and flexible pick-up/drop-off services for pups located in New York and New Jersey as well as flexible drop-off and pick-up times at my home, pet food pick-up, trips to the groomer and emergency trips to the vet of your choice.

I can host housebroken, friendly and healthy dogs only, in order to keep the safety and well-being of all pups. I strongly recommend all dogs to be on a Flea&Tick prevention treatment and to be up to date on their vaccines and deworming.

Contact me anytime to schedule a Free Meet and Greet, I will be happy to show you your pup’s vacay home.

Please like my newly created Facebook Page for more pictures and videos of the pups in my care!
I also post most of my pups pictures on my instagram @mariejolara

Have a pawsome day!

Very good host. Thanks very much for taking care of my puppy. She walks dog several times a day and my puppy loves her very much.
I have been using Maria Jose to visit our pets for over a year and will continue to do so. She is very conscientious and lets me know in advance when she will arrive for each visit scheduled for my two house-bound cats. They love visiting with her and Maria Jose sends notes, pictures, and/or videos of them after each visit. The water, food, and litter is addressed each visit as I have requested and she stays to spend time, love them up, and play with them so they don't feel totally abandoned. I trust Maria Jose and know she will take good care of my four-legged family and my home during each visit. Thanks, Maria Jose!
This was the 2nd time my baby stayed with Maria. I honestly knew from approaching Maria's house that Poseidon miss her thus, I confirmed my intial thoughts from last time; that he was in great hands. Once Señor Poseidon saw Maria my baby went crazy with joy, SERIOUSLY he wanted to kiss her he was all excited that he got to see her again. Maria always sent me pics and videos. This time I seriously gave her short notice like no time at all. I asked her if she would be able to take my baby for a week because i had to leave for work. Maria instantly said she could do it. Honestly she's great and I would not be changing Señor Poseidon sitter AT ALL. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER.
