We had a last minute change to holiday plans, and couldn't use our normal kennel. Maria was an awesome replacement! We originally thought we were leaving Wednesday and booked same day. Unfortunately we had to push until Thanksgiving morning, and both Maria and DogVacay were great refunding and rescheduling our appointment.
Maria was a great sitter for our two dogs. We were nervous about leaving our home with a new person after only a short meet and greet. But, Maria put us completely at ease. And, everything went great. We wouldn't hesitate to call on her again.
I would like to brag on Maria M. who cared for my poodle, Topaz who is 10 months old. Maria is a very , very, loving and kind hearted person for anybody's fur baby. It was so obvious upon returning from a seven day cruise, that Topaz received 1st class, love and nurturing, which included bath, grooming, teeth brushed and whatever else I requested of her. Maria offers a safe and healthy environment. Maria's dog is so adorable and loving, as well. Roco received Topaz and was so good with him and now, Topaz has an adopted brother and friend. lol. I would recommend Maria to anybody as a guarantee for their fur baby. I am sure that she would be the person I would call again and again.
Maria was great. She sent us pictures of our dog, which helped us relax about leaving him. I would definitely recommend using Maria.
Maria was absolutely amazing. She is so nice, and is great with Henry. She gave us updates of our happy puppy during the day, and was able to reserve a spot last minute. I would certainly recommend her.
Maria was so sweet when I first met her. She instantly made me feel like my dog was in great hands. It was my first time leaving my dog while I went out of town let alone with someone I didn't know prior. Maria kept me informed with how my dog was doing with some daily comforting pictures. I recommend Maria to everyone. I will definitely be using her service soon knowing my dog will be in great hands.
Maria was great from the start. Her and her dog made my Nilla feel just at home. I was so hesitate to leave Nilla with any one due to her separation anxiety, but Maria eased me with telling me how good Nilla was doing the weekend I was away. I will forever be thankful for a good experience, and will def. be booking her whenever I leave town again. I also really appreciated the flexibility in pick up and drop off time. It def. made a huge difference in my experience with the flexibility in her schedule. She is wonderful!
Maria was great. Kept me updated on my dog with pictures and messages. Made sure my dog enjoyed his stay. This was my first time doing this so i was a bit on guard but she kept me at ease.
Maria was wonderful!!! I had a last minute trip to orlando and Maria was available last minute, very flexible on drop off and pick up, and best of all a sweetheart who is great with dogs! My two dogs aren't used to travel or staying with other people, but they were quickly comfortable with Maria and her pets. The second day they jumped out of the car and greeted her like an old friend ready to go inside and play. They barely took the time to say goodbye. I would recommend Maria to anyone!
There are other sitters closer to me, but I keep going back to Maria because of how much Loki loves staying there. He always comes back freshly bathed and happy.
I would definitely use Maria and DogVacay again. She was very understanding and my dog had a good experience.
Another great stay. Loki came back clean and happy. I think he didn't want to leave! I could tell Maria really cared about him, and the daily photo updates kept me from missing him too much.
Maria took great care of Loki. The picture updates stopped me from worrying too much, and she even bathed him!
Full disclosure, I may be one of those crazy dog moms. I've never left my dog with a person I don't know so I was admittedly nervous going into this. On top of that my dog has some anxiety issues and we had to leave him in the middle of a tropical storm. Even with all that in mind Im happy to report that Maria a made our experienincredibly o easy. e She was happy to answer my many questions and super accommodating when we had to drop the dogs off at 6:30am and pick up at 9:30pm.We got daily updas e and pics of both our dogs which really put me at easeShe was up beat, very responsive and was easily reached. Our dogs were treated with wonderful care.
I would definitely recommend Maria and we will continue to use her in the future. .
Within a couple of hours of dropping off my small dog, I received an angry and scornful email from Maria about my dog uncharacteristically having had some kind of strange bowel movement, saying her couch was damaged and I should have told her about my dog's behavior. Realizing I had left my dog in the hands of a stranger who was openly angry at me and my dog and who would not answer the phone or respond to my email was terrifying. My boyfriend who had dropped her off in the morning ultimately ended up leaving work to go and get her, and when he got there he found Lyla tied up to a table and hysterical. Lyla is an easygoing dog who has always seemed to enjoy her Dog Vacays in the past, but this experience was extremely stressful for both of us.This was a last minute booking due to an unexpected circumstance, and while I initially appreciated Maria's flexibility, I regret trusting her and leaving my dog in her care.
Everything went perfectly. No complaints!
Maria was excellent. I will use her again.
Maria was great..she sent me pics of my puppy when I was away..she even gave him a bath..he came home cleaner then when dropped him off..he was a very happy pup..she is definitely my go too person every time I go away.. Thank you Maria
Maria responded right away. She sent pics of my dog so that we can see what she was doing while she was there. She was very polite and took great care of my of her. We will definitely recommend her and use her again as well.
