About Maria

I have grown up around dogs as my mum used to foster greyhounds, so I have a natural comfort being with them (even the difficult ones). For 2 years now I have been dog walking and dog sitting in my home - further expanding my experience in dog care. Looking after different breeds of all ages and sizes has taught me so much about training and the needs of different dogs.
Back at home in London my family have two dogs, both Belgium shepherds and they are a delight to look after. Being with dogs and animals in general makes me very happy and I love making them happy too. I am hardworking, reliable and will give your dog all the constant care and love it needs whilst you are gone. I understand that every dog is different and take pride in making them feel comfortable and at ease if I am walking them or dog sitting. I live in Brighton marine parade and the house is dog friendly, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask...!

I would like to know what the dog eats and its habits, if the dog has any issues with people or other dogs. Just general need-to-know information about your pup so I can look after them the best I can :)

    My dog Praia stayed with Maria for a night. Praia has a lovely stay and I was reassured by photos and messages to update me on how Praia was doing. Everything went smoothly, on our return we were delayed by bad traffic. Maria reassured me that this was no problem and was very understanding. All in all a great success and I would use Maria again.

    This was an emergency booking, and I was delighted that Maria confirmed it quickly and efficiently. My joy was short lived as after I completed the payment she cancelled by saying I'm living to far. Surely dog walkers must look at the location of a potential client before saying you're available. I now have the tedious task of obtaining a refund.

    There was a lack of communication between us in this situation, it was a simple misunderstanding. Its standard issuing for the dog walker to "confirm" a booking straight away, it just means we are available. The location of your whereabouts was not available and usually there is some kind of a conversation between the client and I before they confirm the booking, it is not my fault you don't know how to use dog buddy. maria
