About Maria

I grew up in a small farmhouse in Cyprus, surrounded by many animals including dogs, cats, goats, chickens, and rabbits. I have been an animal lover ever since, finding peace and calmness among them.

I also worked for three years at dog rescues in San Franscisco CA, where I used to be a hosting mother for rescue dogs and have worked with animals that have trauma. During my dog shelter experience, I met and adopted my one and only doggie, a small chihuahua mix, named "Password" (now 8 years old).

As an ex-pat dog owner, I faced the struggles of a pet owner and the difficulty of a busy schedule, work, family, events, traveling, and more.

So Password and I decided to start a reliable and trusted dog walking and dog sitting personalised service to help fellow dog parents enjoy daily life while knowing that their doggies are in good hands, happy and healthy!

In our ground floor apartment , we have a small urban private garden and we live across the volkspark friedrichshain , where we enoy long fun walks, and the leash free dog park!

      Dog Boarding
      PAUL, 2023-09-04

      I recently had the pleasure of boarding Brown, a very energetic German Pointer, with Maria for 8 days, and I cannot express how wonderful the experience was. From the moment I left Brown with Maria, I felt at ease knowing he was in loving hands.

      Maria treated Brown as if he was a cherished member of her own family. Throughout his stay, she constantly sent updates, accompanied by delightful photos that showcased how truly happy and comfortable he was. These regular check-ins allowed me to see all the adventures Brown was having!

      Brown enjoyed long, refreshing walks and playtime sessions at the park where he was able to play fetch and burn off his energy. It's evident that Maria understands and loves dogs deeply, ensuring they get both physical activity and emotional connection.

      To top off the already impeccable time, Brown returned home with a special gift, a testament to the thoughtful care Maria and her family provide. I wholeheartedly recommend Maria's dog boarding services to anyone looking for a loving and dedicated caretaker. Brown and I are grateful for her kindness and hope to reunite for future stays!
