About Mariana

I am offering my services as a Frenchie dog sitter and walker. I love the breed because they are so adorable, funny and clownish. Most importantly, I am myself an owner so I know their necessities first hand.
I am a caring and reliable person who have grown up with lots of dogs, so don't worry because your dog will be in good hands!

My number one priority is to keep them safe. I definitely know that frenchies are very unique; they require special attention like being supervised while playing, extra care during warm days, and of course lots of love & company.

Boarding and DayC; I only take a few dogs and prefer to mix them with others that have similar temperament and age. So, it's always advisable to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
I live in a large house with a private garden in Balham, close to Atkins Road, with my hubby and our Frenchie.

Walking routine: (we can adjust to our guest if specified)
During normal days: 10 min first thing in the morning, 45 min afternoon, 10 min before bed.
During extremely hot / cold days: 15 min early morning, 15 min afternoon, 10 min evening.
(We'll always be trying to avoid rain and extreme weather. So the times will be adjusted to that)

While at home; if the weather is nice, they'll be sunbathing or playing with the ball in the garden. When indoors I normally keep them entertained with toys, cartoon boxes, etc. I like to keep them in a relaxed environment, for instance by playing chilled out music.

Let me know about any special requirement (solo boarding, allergies, behavioural issues, special diet, sleeping company)

Please bring; clean bed, food, poo bags, favourite toy, and vaccinations record by email or photo.
Liz is always up to date with vaccines, flea/worming treatment, clean & groomed to welcome our guest as they deserve.

Grooming session £20: bubble bath, blow dry, ear cleaning and brushing.
Puppy's or not potty trained dogs are £9 extra per day.

    Mariana was wonderful. Buckleigh had a great time with her and she was kind enough to send pictures of him while I was away :). She was also an absolute star and very patient when I was delayed coming home. Huge thank you! Xx
