About Maria

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello my name is Maria and if you are looking for a responsible and energetic person to dog sit your baby I am the one ;D!! I have the time and energy to take care of your doggie in my big fenced in backyard.

Since I am the one who is gonna take care of your baby I'm sure you need to know more about me. I live in Anderson, Indiana and my zip code is 46012. I work part time at Planet Fitness and I'm currently taking classes at Ivy Tech. My husband and I don't have kids. We have one cat, who spends most of her time hiding inside the couch. Her name is Bonita (pretty), she knows when it's safe to come out and meet our guests. She'll take her time to smell and be smelled always keeping a safe distance that is why we have never had any problems with any of the dogs. We've taken care of several dogs that have never seen a cat in their lives, dogs that were 1, 9 and even 16 years old; she knows how and when to approach them so don't be afraid to bring your baby around my cat, they will definitely earn a new friend. :D! I put a few pictures on my profile of dogs that are seeing my cat for the first time, enjoy those cute faces!!
We have a dog whose name is Tatin and he is only a year old. He is a German Shepherd and Husky mix who loves having new friends coming over. We have been dog sitting for the family. We've had two boxers (a male puppy and a female almost two years old) and an 8 years old Golden Retriever who enjoyed and had fun playing with Tatin and sleeping with us!!

My husband and I love animals! We really enjoy cuddling with them so dogs are more than welcome to cuddle on the couch and sleep with us :D!!

We are a very energetic family who goes hiking almost every weekend!! I go out for a run once a week and for a walk every time I can. I like to keep my baby in shape and happy! Who doesn't love going outside? I would love using my energy and time on your doggie, we would have so much fun!

There is plenty of water for your pup to drink inside and outside. I have a dog fountain in the house that is always running and purifying the water, and two large bowls outside.

Potty breaks would be every 2-4 hours and more often as needed.

We enjoy play time whenever we can! Our dog even has his own toy box where he goes and takes his toys out every time he wants to play!!

If you would like to meet before hand and get to know us more, that would be fantastic :DD!!

I am flexible with times and I am glad to make you and your pet feel comfortable with me and my family! There is no problem with receiving messages or calls at night. If you have an emergency or you have a delay, just let me know!

She was great I would recommend her to anybody thank u so much for watching my baby girl
Maria was very supportive and reassuring at a time when it was needed.
She provided updates and photos, and accommodated a dog that is spoiled and doesn't recognize boundaries.
A very positive experience and if was a 10 scale, Maria would be a 10.
Wholly satisfied and would recommend Maria to anyone, most especially anyone who needs help leaving a most special baby away from home the first time, and everyone else, too!
We left Max with Maria for eleven days and knew as soon as we did the meet and greet that she was the person we wanted to care for our baby. He was pampered and loved while we were away. He enjoyed his vacation as much as we enjoyed ours. Maria is a kind, gentle host who has an obvious love for the pets in her care. She did an awesome job of sending daily photos and messages. She was easy to work with for scheduling a meet and greet as well as drop off and pick up for Max's Vacay. We will definitely use Maria again if she is available and would recommend her to anyone who wants a loving home for their pet when they need one.
