About Maija

Hello! My name is Maija (pronounced like Maya), and I am a recent transplant from Northern California. I am currently a second year medical student at Rush Medical College and so unfortunately am currently unable to have a furry friend of my own but would love to take care of yours while you're away! I am not offering dog boarding at this time, so my services only include coming to your home to take care of your pooch. The majority of my coursework can be done virtually, so my schedule is very flexible. My best friend growing up was an incredibly energetic Jack Russell Terrier (pictured above with my childhood cat), so I am definitely accustomed to energetic critters. I have also done quite a bit of dog sitting and volunteering at shelters, so I have experience with dogs of all sizes. Thanks for visiting my page!

We had such a wonderful experience with Maija! The dogs were always happy and well cared for when we got home and Maija was great at sending pictures and keeping in touch while we were away (yes, I'm a helicopter dog mom). We recently moved away and are sad that we won't be able to keep using Maija but we definitely recommend her!

Maija has watched my dog Cash twice now, and she's been terrific. She sends pictures from time to time and generally keeps me aware of what's happening at home. Cash seems happy when I get home, and I'm sure he enjoys his time with Maija.
Maija is wonderful! I've used her a couple times for weekend trips and everything is always easy. Maija is great at staying in contact over the weekend and sending me pictures since I hate being away from my dogs. When I get home, the dogs are happy and tired from their fun weekend. As an added bonus, my place is always as spotless (if not more) when I get back in town. I'm definitely looking forward to continuing to work with Maija!

Maija did an awesome job with Kato on a house visit with him. He enjoyed his time with her!
Mains was great! Very flexible and sent me lots of great pictures of Chloe.
Maija was phenomenal! She was responsive and very good with our pup, Stella. We wouldn't hesitate to work with Maija again!
This was our first time using DogVacay and we were so happy with Maija! She was super responsive in scheduling a meet and greet and we knew right away that she would be great with Frankie. She sent photos while we were away and we could tell Frankie was having an awesome time. We would definitely have Maija dog sit for us again and would strongly recommend her based on our positive experience.
