Maria Victoria was super professional and easy to communicate with. It was clear upon first meeting that my dog, Foxy Lady took a liking to her and that Maria Victoria has a way with animals. Maria Victoria watched my dog for two weeks also while house sitting. She not only took great care of my dog, but left the place extra clean and nice. I would highly recommend Maria Victoria as a dog walker or a pet sitter.
