Marissa Acker

Marissa Acker

Founder

My name is Marissa and I am the owner and top dog of Pampered Pups by Marissa. My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion! I am a proud pet mamma 3 dogs, Ellie, Samantha and Rocky. They are my fur kids and have me wrapped around their little paws.
Over the years, friends and family have entrusted their precious pets in my care because they trusted my abilities and knew that I would treat their pets as I would my own. Spending my days with cats and dogs is the ultimate job. Kind of hard to even call it a “job.” Who can resist waggs and purrs, wet kisses and lap naps? Certainly not me. Pet sitting and dog walking is my profession, my livelihood and my business.
I have fostered over 30 dogs that now have loving, forever homes; a new leash on life. Fostering these dogs was the most life-fulfilling thing I’ve ever done. I watched them come into rescue sad, lost, hurting and just wanting to be loved. With loving care and patience they blossomed, regaining faith in their human counterparts.
As a pet lover myself I understand the difficulty of finding someone who will care for your pets and respect your home. My clients can rest assure that they will be provided the highest degree of professionalism and heartfelt pet care for their four-legged family members. All pets are unique and deserve undivided attention.
I have many references who will gladly speak of my compassion and abilities to care for animals, my dedication and my high-moral values. I provide the utmost quality pet care for responsible pet parents.
If you have a bored pooch and need daily dog walks, give Pampered Pups by Marissa a call. When you’re ready to go on vacation, I will not only treat your pets like my own, but I will closely monitor your home and property.

Chief Dog Officers

These dogs are important members of our staff here, they keep us all inline. Without these guys, we would have to chase our own squirrels! When not working, Ellie, Samantha and Rocky enjoy chasing tennis balls, Frisbee’s, and getting lots of pictures taken of themselves!

Dog Walker, VP of Training and Treats

Hi, my name is Dave, I live in Souderton with my 130lb Bernese Mountain dog Teddy & my two cats Frisbee and Ajax. I have been house & petsitting for friends, family and neighbors for over 25 years. I have a background in the insurance and medical fields. I have a lifelong love for animals of all kinds, I am an active foster parent with Home at Last Dog Rescue and a current member of the Board of Directors as well. Something cool about me i’d like to share, I recently fostered a pregnant 2 year old Shepard, she had 11 puppies that I loved & cared for from birth to 8 weeks, this was definitely an experience that i will always remember. Not only did i see them grow from birth but I was there to care for them through it all, late night feedings & sleepless nights. They all went to fabulous homes and I keep in contact with all the adoptive families.

Part Time Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

Hello, My name is Amber, nice to meet you! I was born and raised in Lansdale but currently, live with my boyfriend in Harleysville. I am a mommy to 3 fur babies … 2 cats and a dog. If it was up to me, I would probably have MANY more like a whole zoo of my own. My cats are Kosmo and Meeper, they are litter mates that we rescued from the SPCA as kittens. The new addition to our family is our puppy, Chester. We just adopted him in the beginning of December and he is already one spoiled pup. We fell in love with his sweet face within seconds of meeting him and could NOT resist. I have always been an animal lover. I can’t remember there ever being a time growing up when I didn’t have either a cat or dog in my life. I am excited to be a part of Pampered Pups and be able to love your furbabies as much as my own. I am looking forward to meeting your special fur friends and providing them with the best care possible. I am eager for puppy kisses, walks, play time and more! I know just how much my furbabies mean to me and I promise to keep that in mind when caring for yours!

I can, also, admit my first foster I adopted, she is a little black cat and her name is Joan Jet. I can’t wait to meet your fuzzies, feathered or scaly and playing with them.
