About Mary

I am a retired stay at home wife, with an empty nest. I have one dog named Mia, three cats, and three to four horses (Depending if my daughter is home from college). My home has many amenities for your dogs including an acre of land with twelve foot fencing, enclosed swimming pool, and round the clock attention. I make sure to walked dogs daily for at least an hour. I owned a pet store for 13 years and am capable of taking care any special needs including medication (oral or injections), and any special attention. This allows me to assist in at home care for post surgery dogs.

Felt like a home away from home for our dear Valentine. Very happy with the experience and will plan to use your service again. Bob
Mary was a pleasure to deal with and had a property and knowledge about dogs that made the experience perfect for Trixie. The rates were reasonable and I see no reason to not use her services again and again.
My dogs love staying with Mary
Mary is amazing!!! She sent us several pictures of our furry little girl which we absolutely loved! You could tell from the pics how happy our lab was! Mary's yard is a doggie paradise and she even got to go swimming! You can tell that Mary loves animals and we would highly recommend her!!

We just returned from two weeks in Europe and were met by a very happy and healthy dog. We can always leave Cody with Mary, and know she will be well taken care of while we are away. Mary is wonderful with our dog, and Cody is always happy to go there.

Mary is your dog's angel and her property is a slice of doggie heaven! Honey loves her new equine friends and Archer, who is insecure in nature, warmed up to the new environment, people, dogs, and other animals. We look forward to seeking Mary's help in the future and would highly recommend her to all.

Mary had the perfect place for my dogs Kodi and Kit. Close to my home, very large yard, 3 horses, one dog, one cat and someone who really cares about my dogs. They are both looking forward to their next vacation. Ted R
It is always a pleasure to have Cody stay with Mary. We can leave her there knowing she will be well taken care of. We will be going to France this year, and we have already booked Cody's vacation with Mary.
Cody stayed with Mary from June 3rd to June 13th. This is the longest she has ever stayed there, and she did very well. Mary and her husband are special people and so easy to work with. Cody is booked again for a 2 week vacay there in August.
Mary and her Jamul Ranch house in a beautiful neighborhood are great. Our Australian Shepherd Keeper absolutely loves the space to run and play with the other dogs. This was Keeper's second visit to Mary's his first stay was 11 straight days and nights and this time 3 nights. We will be back later this summer.

This was my first experience with "A Country Get Away" and with DogVacay. We had to vacate my property for a few days while it was tented for termites. I can't bear to put my Buster in a kennel so I was excited to find a place where he was in a home environment with plenty of room to run. Mary took great care of him!!

Mary is a loving and knowledgeable sitter. We can trust that Duke is safe and well cared for at her home.
Mary is fantastic at taking care of my dogs during my families New Years vacation. Mary is very consistent with up dating you with photos every couple of days. I highly recommend using Mary as an alternative to using a kennel service.
Cody always has a great experience at Mary's...we are so thankful to have found her!!!
Mary is awesome! So easy to coordinate with and takes great care of our aging dogs. It is such a relief to have a reliable and convenient pet sitter so close to home!
Cody just returned today from her second vacation with Mary. She is always excited to go there, and she gets along well with Mary and all her animals. Mary is always our first choice of people to "dog sit" Cody when we are away.
Marilyn and Richard are the perfect hosts. My dogs are pampered and happy - maybe not too happy when I return because they love their daily walks.
Cody had a wonderful time with Mary and her family while we were gone. She went swimming, went for walks, and had dogs to play with. Mary is totally an animal person and very easy to work with. She sent texts about Cody and pictures of her, too. We will certainly use Mary and Dog Vacay again, and will recommend her to our friends.

Mary R is awesome. She took such great care of my dogs and I'm so grateful to her for watching out for them.
Great experience all around. Mary was really easy to coordinate with, it was great to leave our older dogs in a home environment with lots of TLC, and the dogs were happy. We highly recommend Mary and DogVacay!
Coco, lab, and Bella, pomeranian, enjoyed their time with Mary. We were immediately impressed with her dog friendly home and her obvious love of animals. We left the dogs with her at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was our first time leaving them....and we felt very comfortable with our choice. I would recommend Mary to anyone who wants exceptional care for their pets.
She sent updates and pictures also!!

Robbie and Mary were very patient with our numerous questions and visible anxieties of leaving our family member with a stranger. Mary allowed us to preview her home and property (with Maverick in tow-he's 125 lbs) several weeks ahead of our departure. Her property was reassuring in that it was large (~5-acres); several horses, dogs and cats; secured with a completely enclosed fence with a large perimeter fence on 1-side; a fully fenced pool and house privileges. We were not rushed nor were our concerns dismissed as trivial or insignificant. Mary sent us text's & photos daily that really helped with our concerns about leaving Maverick. They even stayed up late to allow us to pick up Maverick at 10:30 pm when our plane got in versus making us wait until the following day.

Thank you Robbie and Mary

A wonderful home, we felt very confident, and when we returned the pups were well and happy. We are very particular about pet care and they exceeded our expectations..you can sense their love for animals...as they have horses, dogs, cats, etc!!! A fun place.
We are using them again.
