Preferred Pet Care
My name is Marisa and I've had furry friends my whole life, but I made pet care my job about 6 years ago. Being a pet care provider gives me the opportunity to love more fur babies and receive just as much love from them in return. Each pet I get the privilege of caring for is always treated as my own, like family. I take in any type of dog at any age with any personality. From puppies that need some training to older pups that need extra help, I can provide it. I have beds throughout the house and toys inside and outside. My yard is fully fenced in and when your fur baby is let out I always stay outside so they're never left alone. I play fetch, run with the dogs and so much more! During the stay you'll get updates and pictures of your pet to show how their day is going and how happy they are in their home away from home. This is a great environment for any pup and I hope to meet you and your furry family member soon!

I'm passionate about providing proper care to your pets. The love I receive from my pets and yours is so rewarding, I couldn't imagine doing anything different. I get my fur baby fix while you get a loving and responsible pet care provider. Doggy kisses, cuddles and love are what I live for!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I speak with my customers via text or call. At the owners preference I propose a meet and greet at my home. We sit in the backyard to discuss the details of the booking and allow your dog to roam the fenced yard while we talk. This allows me to get to know your pet and them to get to know me!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I’ve been working with animals for over 5 years. I’ve learned behaviors and habits of different animals, but every pet is different which is why I ask questions regarding your furry friend!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.
Pricing is on a case by case basis. Depending on the dog and requirements during their stay. Once I have enough information about your pup I can give a price.
How did you get started in this business?
I started pet boarding because I wanted a job that allowed me to be close to animals all the time. I’ve always loved caring for my pets and now I get to care for other people’s pets too!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've taken care of all types of animals. Different sizes, different breeds. If you have a specific question about my experience feel free to reach out!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
once you find a good sitter, stick with them. Finding a sitter that fits all your needs isn’t always easy so find one to build a relationship with (it’s better for your pet too, allowing them to get to know one sitter and not multiple). When you’re searching, don’t be afraid to ask questions or request something extra (bath, on-leash walking, extra play time, etc.) some sitters are more than willing to go the extra mile. Lastly please be sure to give the sitter ALL info on your pet including behavior and personality traits, to help keep your pup healthy and safe as well as the people or other animals in the house.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
Ask questions about playtime, how long is it, when is it, what do you do, etc.
Ask about things specific to your dog.
If your dog doesn’t like kids or other animals, ask if the sitter has kids or animals.
If your dog doesn’t like being left alone, ask how many hours a day the sitter Is home.
if your dog needs a cage to sleep in, ask the sitter if they can provide one.
Any questions are worth asking.
