Marta is fantastic. I brought my Cavalier, Marcello, home four years ago and she has been caring for him since. She is incredibly responsible. She has never missed a day rain or shine. I don't think she ever gets sick. Marcello is always happy to see her when she comes into the house. I totally trust her. It is clear that she loves dogs and is incredibly good with them. She notices things wrong with Marcello that I miss…I just cannot say enough good things about her!
Marta has been walking JD since he was 6 months old (he’s now almost 5!). JD loves his walks each day with Marta and all of his doggy friends. Marta exemplifies what you are looking for in a dog walker. She is honest, reliable, dedicated, and compassionate. JD and I have the highest regard for Marta. She is simply fantastic!
As an expat, my dog Toinette and myself were both lost until we met Marta in the park. I desperately needed someone who could take care of Toinette, a pack leader who felt unsettled and anxious in her new city surroundings. I knew it would be good for Toinette to socialize and be walked in a group, and Marta managed to integrate her with no stress into a routine with other dogs. Her knowledge and intuition about dog behavior is equal to none! Toinette is now a well behaved, integrated Belgium dog. Marta saved my life but more importantly made Toinette comfortable in new challenging surroundings. Merci!
Marta has been walking our Italian Greyhound, Bella, since she joined our family seven years ago.
During this time she has continuously been reliable and professional in addition to providing customized
care and attention to Bella based on our family’s schedule.
Marta is dedicated to her clients, arriving daily at the same time. She is also understanding to each individual
dog’s needs and will accommodate specific breed requirements. For our family this translates to carefully dressing
Bella for the ever-changing New England weather.
We feel so fortunate to have found such a trustworthy, caring person to take care of Bella and look forward to many
more years of working with Marta and doGone Walking.
The Chou-Hitschler family
Marta has been our pet sitter since 2005. As professionals with 10+ years of experience in veterinary
medicine, we completely trust her to care for our pets, including 3 cats (one of them being diabetic) and
a 60 gallon freshwater fish tank. Marta is dependable, professional, friendly, and able to administer
oral and subcutaneous drug treatments to our cat without difficulty. We easily maintain communication
with Marta through the use of telephone and e-mails, and can even get updates about our pets through
text messages while we are away! When we come home, the house is always clean, and old mail nicely
placed in one location. She also leaves us with personalized notes summarizing her visits, including any
clinical observations pertinent to our pet’s medical condition for follow-up. Having known and worked
with Marta over the years, we highly recommend her for anyone’s pet sitting needs. This is regardless
of whether you simply need someone to exercise your pets during the day, or if you need someone to
care for them over a longer period of time - you can trust her for a job well done!! Thank you Marta,
and we’ll see you again soon!
Marta has been cat sitting our two kitties Max and Fridge over the past several months. My husband and I located Marta's pet services through an online search and we could not be happier. Marta is trustworthy, reliable, professional and experienced. She is extremely responsive by phone or email and is always readily available. Along with feeding the cats, cleaning their litter box and playing with them - she waters our plants, takes in the mail and leaves us a full update upon upon our return home. Marta is a trained veterinary technician which gives us piece of mind that if one of our cats becomes ill, she will know how to respond. I am 100% confident that my cats are well taken care of in Marta's care.
