About Maria

Experienced dog sitter on maternity leave, offering a secure and affectionate environment for your furry friends. With a fenced back garden in my own house, coupled with the gentle playfulness of my 10-month-old daughter, your pets will feel right at home. Living near four splendid parks allows for regular outdoor adventures and refreshing walks. As I am currently on maternity leave, I have plenty of time to devote to your pets, and my flexible routine, which includes early mornings, ensures tailored care for their individual needs. Your dogs will not only receive expert attention but also the joy of playful interactions with a little friend, making their stay both enjoyable and fulfilling. Rest assured, your canine companions are in good hands, receiving the love, care, and exercise they deserve.

I grew up with a dachshund from my early childhood. I loved taking walks with her, and we shared blissful 15 years of my life together. I have a deep affection for animals, all of them, and I follow a vegetarian diet, practicing the principle of non-violence towards living beings.

About the house we live in:

We have our own house with a garden and a spacious living room. The windows face the south, ensuring it's always bright and warm. I do wet cleaning every day.

Our living room is spacious and combined with the kitchen, allowing me to be in the room even while preparing food. My daughter isn't afraid of dogs at all; she shows no fear of their barking. She loves animals, although her interest tends to wane fairly quickly.

About my experience:

I've lived my entire life surrounded by pets. You won't believe it, but we even had a monkey living with us for a while. My mum worked as a guide at the zoo, and during renovations, some animals were temporarily taken home by employees.

"My experience with animals includes caring for both cats and dogs. At different stages of my life, when I rented a room in an apartment, a cat lived with us. From childhood, I grew up with a dog.

During my first year in England, before we had our own home, I lived in a house with a turtle. Believe me, they also need care and attention. Every animal deserves kindness and care.
