I’m Maruta and have recently graduated Southampton Solent Univeristy with a Fashion degree. Throughout the years of studying during my free time I have been pet-sitting, pets of different types and sizes – feeding and walking pets during scheduled times.
I have been around dogs since I was a child and moreover, back at home,I have a German shepherd and a Bernese mountain dog, who I miss a lot. Therefore, I'm confident with and can handle any size dogs, small or large. I consider myself a friendly, supportive, tolerant, creative and open-minded, as well as very determined and thorough individual, with an ability to successfully manage my time.
I think it is important to say that I'm very patient and caring as well, I do acknowledge the fact that animals the same as humans have different personalities, therefore I can assure that I will do my best to make your pet feel at home. I live in a student house with my friends and all of us love having dogs over! It might seem daunting to leave your best friend with a stranger but your pet will be in safe hands :) I currently work for a fashion brand freelance, so most of my work I do from home on my laptop, therefore I’m free all day during weekends, as well as workdays.
I live nearby The Common and the city centre dog park, so that’s where I mostly do the dog walking, if required.
Also photography is one of my hobbies , as you can see in some of the pictures I haved added in my profile, therefore I will be more than happy to take cute pictures of your pet whilst looking after him or her :) Hope to hear from you soon! Maruta
I was very happy with Maruta caring for my dog. I was very worried as I had not left my dog before but Maruta was very reassuring. She kept in touch via text over the weekend and informed me of everything that happened. My dog was very happy in her care and was just fine when I got her back, showing no signs of anxiety at all.
Maruta is a real treasure! First, I was a bit nervous about leaving my dog with a young student. But when I first met Maruta- I understood that Doby is in good hands. She is responsible, friendly and you can see from her behavior that she really love dogs. What is more important, she is not too soft, that means she can handle all kind of dogs (not only small and well trained). She sent photos of my dog from the playgrounds every day, replying to my questions very quickly and asked me questions when she needed advise about my dog's behavior. I am 100% happy with Maruta and I will definitely ask her for help next time.
