About mariana

My name is Mariana and I am 24 years old, I just graduated from uni and as a result I have a lot of free time now! I am easy to reach and available literally every day and at any time. I can't think of a better way to spend my time left in Bournemouth than to look after your dog. I have had pets all my life and I am very experienced when it comes to their needs and entertainment. My two last 2 dogs have been Great Danes so I am used to big breeds. On my last job I took care of a Labrador for about a month and we had no problems. I am very patient and protective of pets and I take the job very seriously. I find dogs therapeutic and I love their company and they seem to enjoy mine too!! I like playing with them and I am lucky to live close to a couple of big parks which are perfect to walk them or just spend the day. I also have a decent size backyard with a tall fence which is nice for them not to get too uneasy inside the house but secure enough for them not to wander off. My approach to meeting new dogs is allowing them to sniff me, pet them so they can get comfortable around me. After that first introduction is made, I like to take them for a walk so from the start of our time together I can build a relationship of who is in charge and also get them a little tired so they don't have excessive energy when we get home. Overall, I think to do this kind of job you have to genuinely love it, because it is a huge responsibility but also a pleasure when you make the best of it!

    Thank you so much for looking after our Springer Hugo. Mariana was absolutely fantastic, giving us daily updates & photos on how Hugo was getting on! We can tell he was really well looked after & that he had a great time! We would leave Hugo in Marianas care again without a doubt!

    I was very nervous to leave Trilly however I had an emergency and had to find a place for her for a couple of days.Mariana was really understanding and gave me a good impression straight away.She kept me informed all the times how Trilly was doing and really gave me less to think about for few days.I will definitely call her again if needed.Superb!

    Was a little nervous about leaving an eccentric and pampered golden retriever with a 'total stranger' although dog buddy was easy to use and Mariana was easy to communicate with from the first enquiry, and kept in touch for the week with photos and updates, which were thoughtful and reassuring. He's been very well looked after without disruption to his usual routine, exercised well and quirks pandered too as well. Absolutely recommend Mariana, who was wonderful, thankyou !!
