For our next Client Spotlight, we are headed to St. Louis to talk to Maris Sonnabend, owner of House of Paws Pet Care LLC! The team at House of Paws makes three promises. #1 - to provide peace of mind while pet parents are away; #2 - to show their passion for animals to every pet they care for; and #3 - to raise the standard of care for all pets. Based on all of their amazing reviews, they deliver on all 3!


House of Paws provides dog walks, dog adventures, and pet sitting services in greater St. Louis. Maris and her team all share the same passion for animal care. They go above and beyond for their clients to ensure their comfort, happiness, and peace of mind for pet parents. If you are looking for your pet's new best friend in St. Louis, be sure to give Maris and the House of Paws team a call! You can learn more on their website, on their Facebook page, or on their Instagram!

What caused you to get into pet sitting/dog walking?

I started pet sitting in high school as a side gig, like I'm sure many of us did. Being a retail manager through the pandemic really stressed me out, and once everything started opening up again, I was getting more and more booked for pet sitting - I thought, why am I turning down pet sitting jobs to work in retail?! So after we closed on our home in April of '21, I took the dive to go full time & never went back!


What is the most fulfilling part of owning a pet sitting/dog walking business?

My favorite part about being in the industry is that we get to be a part of people's families whenever they can't be there themselves. I really take pride in having a team that brings peace of mind to our clients with their professionalism & genuine passion for their pets!

What is the most challenging?

Work-life balance can be hard to find, especially in this industry. I've gotten really good at time blocking for work, and recently started doing it for my personal time so that I have time built into my day to only worry about me!

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

Booming! We have grown insanely fast, and I'm so excited to bring our brand to more local families!


What has Time To Pet changed the most about how you run your business?
