Hello my name is Maria, I own Dawg Gone It! I’m a Veterinary Assistant, a graduate of Algonquin College‘s Veterinary Assistant Program, class of 2006. My goal, as a pet professional, is to earn your trust and that of your pet to ensure your peace of mind. I strive to provide personalized care in a friendly, responsible and reliable fashion. I will take care of your pet, home, yard and possessions as though they are my own. I’m insured & bonded with PROfur and a member in good standing with Pet Sitters International.
Your pet will be happy, safe and comfortable in their own familiar environment where all sights, sounds and smells say: “HOME!” Minimizing your pet’s stress insures they will eat and sleep well. Boarding facilities are often noisy and unfamiliar which can increase your pet’s stress. A constant human presence reduces your pet’s loneliness. A tummy rub and a good scratch behind the ears
says: “I‘m here, I care.”
Following your pet’s unique diet and exercise routines keeps them physically and mentally healthy. Maintaining social connections and interaction among their pet community also helps to keep your pet healthy.
You can relax, knowing that while you’re away, you can feel confident that your pet is in capable, qualified and professional caring hands. Before you go away, please tell your veterinarian, that I will be caring for your pet in the event they require hospitalization in your absence. I will, consult with your veterinarian, to stabilize your pet‘s health during an illness or emergency and provide treatment as directed until your return. I will provide you with regular updates and photos of your pet throughout their time spent with me.
