Maya's background

  • Maya spent years developing a program that focuses on positive reinforcement and no-fail techniques that keep you dog and family happy
  • She has helped a lot of families have better relationships with their pets by successfully showing them how to engage, challenge and bond with their dogs
  • She has rescued and adopted countless number of dogs over the years

Other fun facts

  • Maya became an avid animal lover at a young age through her mother’s passion for pet adoption
  • She worked at the Oakland Zoo, providing physical therapy for animals, preparing their food, cleaning up after them and gaining an overall understanding of animal behavior
  • She also participated in several wildlife conservation programs, including one internationally

Maya went through a lot of struggles taking care of her own dog, Bailey. She wanted to give him the best life possible but, at first, she didn’t know what he needed.

After learning some basic dog training techniques and educating herself about dog behavior, she noticed a dramatic improvement in his life. He went from having extreme fear aggression toward people and other dogs to being confident, relaxed and happy.

As a result, Maya was a lot happier too.

"Even though it can be frustrating to deal with our pets sometimes, I’ve learned that, with a few simple techniques, every dog owner can turn that frustration into hope and happiness when it comes to taking care of their four-legged friend."

After spending the last decade working specifically with dog owners in the East Bay, Dog’s True Dream has seen many breakthroughs with families and their dogs as well as what could happen when people don’t address issues with their dogs.

As a premier dog care service company, we understand that nobody wants anything bad to happen to their dog. We’ve seen clients rescue a dog and then give it back because they thought there was no hope. We’ve seen clients lose their dogs due to a tragedy. We’ve seen dog owners not fully be able to enjoy that ideal relationship with their dog that everyone dreams of.

That’s why we’re not only on a mission to provide the best life for your dog but also the best life for you as a dog owner.

“Dog’s True Dream is fantastic! Maya and her team of walkers are true professionals and always take great care of my dog when he’s in their care. I’ve recommended Dog’s True Dream to many other dog owners because of their caring professionalism and excellence.”
