About Mary

I have over 15 years of experience with dogs and rabbits. I used to own a small farm where I kept 14 dogs under my care and supervision and slowly managed to give them all suitable homes. Over the years I gained experience in administering medication when it was needed. I now own 3 lovely dogs, from small to medium sizes, and they are considered family! I am a full time dog sitter and provide care, walks and a warm home for all my guests. And of course lots of play time and socialisation with my dogs which I believe is necessary for a healthy upbringing of one's pet!
My house has a lovely large garden for dogs to play but there is also a park near my house where I walk the dogs on a daily basis for at least one hour and sometimes even twice a day. Everyone in the park is friendly and I've met most of the dog owners/walkers and their lovely pets.
I can provide dog sitting and walking on a daily basis. I can administer medication/injections if needed. I also own a car in case of emergency. I would rather dog sit for friendly, small to medium sized dogs, since my pets are very friendly and not too large themselves.

    Masha had a great weekend with Mary. Mary was very accommodating with getting to know Masha beforehand and we really appreciated that. Masha came back a happy dog and we would highly recommend Mary to anyone!!

    I have left my dog with Mary during one week and I just only received two pictures, one video and few short and generic messsages only after I asked before several times before. She did not show me her house and insisted in left and take my dog in another point which made me feel unsure about her. She was not professional enough for me at all taking into account the money I paid. I would never recommend Mary to anyone because I am an usual Dogbuddy user and this had never happened to me before and I will never repeat with her again, of course.

    Hello Marta, I'm sorry you felt I did not send enough photos. It gets busy sometimes and you get caught up in taking care of a dog, it's difficult to have a phone in hand taking pictures all the time. I apologise if this made you feel uncertain about the wellbeing of Simba. I'd also like to point out that your flight was delayed, it was past midnight when you arived to pick Simba up and although I didn't mind staying up waiting, my family was asleep at that time. Many of my clients have been in my house and I can assure you its a place full of love for animals. Love, Mary
