About Mariela

I'm an experienced dog walker and dog carer. I work from home and love their company, their cheekiness and taking them on long walks in the park. I'm also good with dog behaviour/training and can help to toilet train your puppy. I will make sure your puppy gets all the socialisation it needs!

I have a 5 month old female whippet puppy called Olivia who adores other dogs. She's the friendliest pup and has learnt so much in the 3 months I've had her!

Small/medium sized dogs would be best suited for our house (for day care), however I can walk and possibly look after well trained larger dogs.

I had dogs growing up, and have experience of small and larger breeds (including Huskys and Rottweilers), and I am a good 'pack leader' and trainer.

While dogsitting, I usually take the dogs to Weavers Fields (2 minutes from home!), Haggerston or Victoria Park, depending on the length of the walk. I also have a lovely garden (see photo), so while at home dogs either hang out on my sofa, play with toys in the living room or go sniff the grass and soak up the sun in the garden.

With more athletic dogs (such as the whippet), I also rollerblade - you might have seen us around Victoria Park! Rollerblading is great both for exercise as well as training purposes.

I love meeting people, dogs, and being in nature (London's parks). So please do get in touch!

    Finding Mariela for Oliver was the best thing ever! I trust her with Oliver every day while I am at work and she takes such good care of him. He is a puppy and still learning everything, and Mariela is so good that she taught him "sit" and "down", super exciting! Totally recommend:)

    Mariela is a true dog lover. I met her prior to leaving my mini dachund puppy with her and Oli - I immediately felt at ease with how she handled my puppy, her own and other dogs. Not only that she sent me very cute pics and commentary throughout the day with commentary on what they had been getting up to. I really think Mariela is wonderful - and my puppy agrees! She came back both days very happy but very tired from playing all day :) ... im booking with Mariela again next week!!
