About Marilina

I had dogs all my life, and I'm a huge animal lover. Currently I'm Brooke's mum, a chilled 12 years old
Golden Retriever. We recently lost her life long doggy partner and I think she would benefit from other doggies' company, so by doing doggy care at home I could help you find a home away from home for your pup, while Brooke benefit from having a friend. I work flexibly from home, so have availability to take them out for breaks during the day, and longer walks early in the morning or in the evening. 

My office is in our conservatory, which is also the doggy room. It connects directly with a fenced garden for pups to be outside if weather helps. They are also allowed in the rest of the house, but Brooke enjoys it here the most since she can watch the birds and this place is full of toys :)  

I can also help with walks, toilet breaks and sitting at the owners house depending on availability. 

--------------------------------------------- 

My motivation to be a sitter is easy to describe: because I'm a worrier myself! And I perfectly know how it feels to go away worried about what I'm leaving at home. I've always helped friends and family with their pets, and want to do the same for more people that want to leave their loved pets in safe hands. I would love to give you have peace of mind and heart while you are enjoying your traveling.  

I can send as many or as few pics/videos of your pets while in our care as you ask me to.  

--------------------------------------------- 

I have vast experience looking after animals. I have been extremely lucky to grow up from when I was 1 year old with Andy, a Collie who was my brother and best friend. I think growing up with animals just give people another perspective in life. After Andy many other pets came along, and from a very early age I started rescuing and rehoming pets myself, and supporting dog's NGOs. I had Brooke, a sweet Golden Retriever, since she was 40 days old and she fitted in my hand - now she's 12 and is a sweet princess who spends her time mostly chilled on the sofa, but also enjoys a lot going out for walks and fetching the ball.  

I've cared for different pets with health conditions so I am confident handling and administering meds if needed.  

---------------------------------------------
 

I do only allow vaccinated pets at my home.

Cannot praise Marilina enough. First time using this service, so was a bit apprehensive as Bella gets quite anxious.

But need not have worried as Marilina is a natural with animals.

Her communication was brilliant and even sent photos throughout the day. Would highly recommend, reliable and trustworthy
