About Mary

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have about five years of professional and 13 years of personal experience with a variety of different household pets. I have owned dogs, cats, horses, chickens, and rodents of all sorts over my lifetime. My work experience includes dog walking/pet sitting, caring for dogs at a doggy daycare/boarding facility, caring for animals at an animal shelter, caring for pets at a boarding facility in a vet clinic, and I am currently a Vet Tech Assistant at a vet clinic in Bee Caves, TX. Due to my job being in west austin and me living in south austin, my hours of availability are limited, and sometimes wonky, but don't let that scare you away. Shoot me a message and we can try to work out a schedule that adheres to your pets needs. I do live in an apartment, and am not allowed any pets other than the ones I pay pet rent for, therefore I will not be able to host any dogs, but I can stay at your house, as well as do multiple walks/drop ins throughout the day. If you have read this far and decide to book me, CONGRATULATIONS! Ask me about a toenail trim, if you decide to book me I can make it happen! Would you like your pet to be freshly bathed when you return from your trip? Not a problem! Does your pet shed enough to make a fur clone? Ask me about a furmination treatment (there's 2 different ones I offer) and we can get a handle on the excessive shedding. Need your pet shaved or freshly trimmed? You may want to find a groomer, I will make your poor fur baby look like a monster and you will hate me. :( I'm not very skilled in this department.
If you have an Instagram, follow me @Poketfullahsunshine to see what my daily animal exposure is, and even see images and videos of some of the pets I have taken care of as a dogvacay host. If you don't have an Instagram, no worries! If Im watching your pet, I'll be sending pictures of them to you directly via phone or email.

Mary (who also goes by her nickname Nikki) did daily home visits while we were gone to look in on our cat. She really went above and beyond, spending time to play with him, brush him, and keep his area clean. We also loved the daily updates complete with photos. She's clearly an animal lover and a very thoughtful pet sitter. Would highly recommend Nikki!

We loved our experience with Mary! I have a pup with special needs and she was willing to come over several times to make sure I felt comfortable leaving him home. Also, she updated us with daily text and a few pictures. We will book with her again if we are out of town.
