Mara DeMauro

Owner | Pet Sitter


Groovin' Paws started with a strong love for dogs and a vision to transform a passion into a purpose. Mara's love for dogs started with her childhood puppy, Zena and has continued throughout her life with her current pups, Mr. Chibs and Quinoa. After having both indoor and outdoor dogs throughout her life, Mara realized the importance of companionship, stimulation, and movement on your pet's overall health and happiness.

Creating a service that provides individualized, loving, and professional pet sitting aligns directly with Mara’s values regarding the care a pet deserves. Groovin' Paws believes that your pets deserve good ol’ fashion fun, fresh air, and most importantly, unconditional love. We believe that while your pets are basking in the sun, having fun, you deserve someone who is trustworthy, reliable, and loving. With Groovin’ Paws you are guaranteed to receive the best of both worlds!

Our mission is to offer a trustworthy, loving, and professional experience for both you and your furry loved ones. We provide the companionship, exercise, and attention they deserve when you are not able to. With the most loving and individualized care that Groovin’ Paws provides, your fur-babies will look forward to every visit.

Happy paws makes for happy people. Contact us today to reserve your spot! :)


Mr. Chibs

Sr. Mini Schnauzer 

Mr. Chibs, also referred to as Chibby, Ticky Sauce, Monkey, etc. is 5 years old and turning more grey with every groom! Although he always has something to say when his pals come to visit, he is extremely excited to show his fellow pups the best sniffing spots on the block. He keeps the calendar in check and the family in order!




Jr. Mini Schnauzer 

Quinoa, also referred to as Kini, is quite the opposite as he appears in this picture. Don't let him fool you! He is almost 1 year young and full of energy. He loves to get Chibby's attention even when the feeling isn't mutual. He's the life of the party (and sleep over) and will be ready to stay up late to enjoy a mid night snack with your pup!
