“Maria is absolutely wonderful. Her kind and caring approach to pets shows how much she cares for animals. She has worked with us in training our little rescue Beagle, and Kida has learned many behaviours through Maria’s training in a timely fashion.
Kida also goes on weekly walks with Maria. As soon as the door opens Kida sees Maria and is excited to go on her nature walks.
I highly recommend working with Maria and Elements Petcare.”– Ryan & Kevin (Kida)
“I’m very particular about how my dog, Grommet, is worked with and trained. Maria picked up on that from the very beginning and reassured me that her philosophy on training and interactions with pups is right on track with mine. When she said, “dogs deserve to be paid for the work they do” I knew I could trust her with Grommet’s care and well-being. Maria has been an amazing addition to my dog’s days. Grommet has had trauma in the past and can be fearful and reactive to bikes, runners, men, and even statues. Maria uses positive reinforcement techniques to support Grommet through his fears and to help him gain confidence and learn new positive associations with things/experiences he is sometimes aversive to. On top of all this, Maria has been great to share reputable resources on training whenever I’ve felt stuck. Most importantly, Grommet is happy and relaxed after his walks with Maria.”– Bonnie (Grommet)
“Maria is great and takes care of everything, she even goes above and beyond what we had expected! She has been a fantastic care-taker for our pets on multiple occasions, even on short notice. She responds very quickly and is always extremely pleasant to deal with.”– Joseph (Sherlock)
“Maria is clearly experienced. I had forgotten to tell her that one of my cats will only drink from a running tap. Next thing you know, she sends me a photo of my cat drinking from the tap! I have 3 cats. One is on insulin with 2 injections a day. She was very cognizant of the importance of the timing for the shots. She was very responsive to my extra messages. Bonus: She sent me some great photos of my cats.”– Janice (Merlin, Fig, & Satchi)
“Worry free cat care. One of my cats is a bit snobby to other people, so it was extremely reassuring to see her warm up to Maria! Super attentive, super communicative, takes excellent photos, and great care with daily updates. I had full confidence in leaving my fur babies with Maria, and that confidence was confirmed upon my return to two happy cats.”– Chris (Kali & Hermes)
“Maria is truly excellent with dogs of all shapes and sizes. Her ability to manage even the most unruly dogs is uncanny and I feel comfortable leaving my dog with her. Maria has demonstrated that she puts dogs at the centre of her life, ensuring they have the best level of care.”– Alistair (Finnegan, Murphy & Parker)
“I absolutely love how much communication Maria provides while looking after our kitties. It lets me know that they are in great hands with her.”– Hansina (Bastet & Jamanji)
“Maria was great with my kitties during my vacation. She kept us updated every day with cute pics, and was on time for our meetings. She also accommodated some last-minute schedule changes. I certainly recommend Maria!”– Carina (Lua & Orion)
“Maria provides my dog with the kind care and attention I wish I could give her every day. When Indi needs a place to stay while I am away I know that she is safe, happy and loved with Maria and her dog Penny. She makes sure my crazy dog gets lots of exercise, but comes back amazingly clean and calm. Great personalized service.”– Rebecca (Indi)
“Our dog Lola has stayed with Maria on numerous occasions and I’m pretty sure Maria is her most favourite person in the world after my husband! It’s the most wonderful feeling to be able to go away and know that our 4 legged family member is having the most wonderful vacation too and that she is being so well cared for! Maria is such a wonderful, caring, and responsible person. I couldn’t think of anyone else we would rather leave Lola with. I know Lola feels the same! I highly recommended Maria!”– Helen (Lola)
