Summer Is In Full Swing!

Things have been busy, busy, busy around Mary's Pet Squad, which is something I am extremely happy about! The sweltering heat has brought in the start of vacation season and I am thrilled to be welcomed into the hearts of so many new pets and families :). July 4th is just around the corner and it's one of the busiest holidays of the summer, so remember to book pet care soon before services are limited! Also, don't forget to like the Facebook Page (and please leave a review if you're an existing client!) and our Instagram account! We are still offering our referral discount as well, so remember to tell your neighbors and friends about Mary's Pet Squad for their pet care needs :). Happy vacationing! 

Summer Pet Sitting, Had Me A Blast!

I had the best Memorial Day Weekend caring for my clients' pets! It was such a pleasure seeing these boys while their parents were off for the long holiday. Sterling, the kitty, was so much fun to get to know. He has the most striking green eyes and knew how to express all the emotions with them- Check out our Instagram for photos of all his looks! I love an expressive and playful kitty :). I also took care of Cecil, who is a Lab/Mountain Cur mix. He was so sweet and happy-go-lucky;  Don't you just want to snuggle with him after seeing his photo?? 

If you have upcoming trips this summer, don't hesitate to contact me to care for your pets! Booking early means that you get priority time slots and the benefit of not having to stress about who is caring for your sweet pets while you're away :). Happy summertime! 

Hot Weather Is Here And Your Pup Needs A Little Extra TLC!

It has been a very busy week at Mary's Pet Squad and I am so thankful! Besides being on the go with my busiest dog walking schedule yet, I have met some amazingly kind clients and their adorable pets! And the cherry on top of this week has been the wonderful weather. I personally love the hot heat, but it can be a bit intense for dogs on walks. I have been making sure to stick to the shady or grassy part of my clients' neighborhoods, as well as walking at a leisurely pace. This way, the dog doesn't overheat or step onto the piping hot ground. I'm also reducing walk length if I see the dog slowing down and panting heavily. Sometimes a short walk followed by an indoor play session is exactly what your dog needs (check me out above snuggling Bella after our walk today)! I always tailor your dog's walk to exactly what they need- If you watch them closely, they will tell you :). Finally, I always make sure their water bowl is full of cool water before I leave. Dogs get extra thirsty on hot days- just like us!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to get back at it next week! I get to have a visit from my Sam Pig and Duke this weekend :).
