About Marsha

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My place is small but dog-cozy...even if you ask my dog Bippy, she'd agree with me! I take her out to walk and she enjoys playing fetch with me or my 15 years old son indoor. The small space doesn't stop us from having fun with our pup. Any dog that comes in our small but cozy dogville will be treated like we treat Bippy. They can sit on our couch and sleep on our bed.

Anyway....

Hello, this is Marsha and I've had dogs whole my life and I can't live without them!! Even, I tried for 2 years, I couldn't so I adopted Bippy, a schoodle for my son's 8th birthday and she's been with us for 7 years!!

Then I have been dog sitting for my friends for a while and it was fun...I really enjoyed dog sitting then I realize, why not continue doing that! So I signed up with DogVacay to help people who adore their pup as much as I do for my Bippy to find a cozy place to stay while we are away from our home. And feel at peace.

And from my experience, when I tried to find a dog sitter for Bippy, it was challenge because I do care for her to be well taken care of by someone else. So I feel you!! :) I feel DogVacay concept is amazing and I feel comfortable doing business with them so I thought I'd work with this company, too!!

And I remember when I planned a trip to Orlando for NYE, spent so much money for that vacation to DisneyWorld and then to my dismay, the fees here on Dogvacay had gone up during the holidays.That's why I believe to keep my rate flat all year round so you can enjoy your vacation more when I provide a cozy dogville for your pup!!! I'll treat your pup while I already have to be your pup's new fur-friend Bippy home as well, no difference, right? :) Even better, I'm a classroom teacher so when school's not in session, I'm home full time. Then your pup will be very lucky!!

Welcome to our small but cozy dogville!! Bippy, my son Luke and I looking forward to meet you and your dear pup.

Marsha was awesome! She was great at sending me updates and pictures of Tita. Her response time was usually within a few minutes of corresponding. I would definitely use her again.
My two small dogs were very happy and cozy with Marsha and her son. They also made friends during their stay, and were not only taken care of but showered with lots of love and affection.

Marsha also accommodated me for the upcoming winter holidays, so I can travel with peace of mind and not worry about my babies.

I like to think I would have Marsha to go to in the future whenever my dogs need a loving host.

She's awesome sitter!!
Marsha did a good job taking care of Piper. She really enjoyed her 4 days stay with her and to her dog Bippy. She constantly send us updates like videos and pictures everyday. I highly recommend her as a pet sitter. Thanks again.
My little monster Deekin is quite attached at me so I am always nervous having to leave him with someone else. We were travelling through the area and I needed a place to put him for the night. Marsha was great from the moment we met her, flexible with our last minute request and Deekin stayed the night and had a blast! Thanks so much!

Marsha is a reliable and caring sitter. Her daily updates (photos, video and messages) on Moe during his 9 days stay was amazing. I was very pleased that Marsha treated him as her own dog when he was boarding at her place. He was well taken care of and very happy. Thank you!

Marsha and Bippy were great hosts for my dog, Buddy. I took him over for a meet and greet and he felt comfortable there. I went ahead and made a reservation for 2 nights and Marsha was wonderful with sending picture updates. Her response time is very quick. What I also loved about her is that her house is very clean for being a dog sitter, especially the carpets! That's always a plus when looking for a place in my opinion. Thank you Marsha for taking care of Buddy, I will definitely be a repeat client!

Shes great! Our little guy was happy. Got lots of communications during our 10 days away.
My dog did really well with Marsha. She was very responsive and sent up pics everyday. This is the first time we left our dog with someone who had other dogs and was a bit apprehensive, but I did not get any complains so assumed all went well. She learnt to give our dog insulin shots , which was a relief too . I am glad to have found her and will be using her services again .

Marsha and her son were great to our little Lucky. They sent pictures each day and I felt like the communication from drop off to pick up was excellent. She has a very friendly dog that snuggled and shared his spaces nicely with our dog, it was comforting to know he had a friend!

Awesome experience!! Marsha provided us with constant updates, pics - our dog had a great time!
Marsha was awesome! My little chihuahua has separation anxiety and is so attached to us that leaving him with someone that he is not familliar with was tough. Marsha gave him some time to feel comfortable and didn't force him to come to her. She just let him wander around her place till he's comfortable. I love the way that within minutes of us leaving Casper at her care, she texted us of pictures of him to let us know how he's doing. She would also do the same each day of being away from your pet. We had to extend our vacation another day and she made everything easy. Thanks Marsha!

Marsha H. this was a very good experience there were no problems .
I'm so pleased with the exceptional care our Cookie receives when with Marsha. It makes us feel so at ease knowing our little diva is in such good hands. We are so happy to have found such a wonderful home for our dog to stay when we are away.
Cricket loves staying with you Marsha! Thank you again so much for taking good care of her! Shawn
Marsha is awesome and took care of my pet like its her own. She provided regular updates with pictures and video of my pet. It was very easy when my pet checked-in even though my pet has a special meal arrangement Marsha gets it quickly and knows what to do. The home is very cozy and safe for any pet to stay. I recommend her to anyone looking for an overnight pet sitter

It was my first time leaving my dog anywhere and I was really nervous! I was being that annoying mom that would text and ask how my dog is doing and Marsha was nice and responded and sent me pictures :)

I know it'll take my dog some getting used to but I am totally comfortable leaving her with Marsha again now :)

We had some relatives visiting us and we went to Yosemite for a couple days and we are happy we found Marsha to take care of our Farofa.
Farofa is very attached to us and has a bit of separation anxiety but Marsha did a great job making Farofa feel comfortable.
Marsha also constantly sent us pictures and updates about Farofa, which made us feel less anxious about staying far from her.
When we picked her up on our way back, Farofa was very clean and relaxed. We are definitely leaving her with Marsha again when we need it, highly recommended.

Cricket has such a great time with you Marsha! Thank you! Shawn
Marsha is very caring and dependable. Treats all pets the same like hers. I was gone for 25 days. Marsha sent me regular videos and pics of my dog - that brought a smile on the face of my 2 kids. I would have her pet sit my dog again without thinking twice. Thanks Marsha!!

Marsha was Awesome. I felt completely safe leaving my Milo with her over the weekend!!
Sophia had a wonderful first stay with Marsha. Marsha even sent a few photos! She was able to take Sophia for an extra night, last minute, as we realized we would be getting back in town later than expected. Will definitely plan on having Sophia stay again next time we are out of town.

Marsha is very responsive to our questions and texts! She sends photo updates everyday while we are away. Her place is very easy to find and it has a cute backyard that puppies can go relax in the sun! We'll definitely book again with Marsha!!
Thank you Marsha for taking such loving care of Cricket! Shawn
Marsha is so good with Cricket! Thank you! Shawn
Marsha was great. She provided me with a couple videos and photos every day and would message me letting me know how Sebastian was doing. Sebastian seemed to have a great time and there were a couple other dogs there so i know he had fun making friends.

Marsha is a wonderful sitter. She very kind and nice person. She has the passion of love to the dogs. I like her to send me Libby's photos. I definitely will being my dog next time when I am on vacation. Thank you Marsha....
Marsha provides a home away from home for our dog. We trust that our dog is being cared for as we would and that we don't have to worry one bit when she is with Marsha. Marsha sends picture updates during our dog's stay. I can't imagine what we would do without Marsha!

Marsha was welcoming to me and my shy dog. She was responsive to my questions. The updates and photos were a wonderful addition. I will definitely feel comfortable having our dog stay with her again.
Love Marsha! She is so good with dogs- my dog loves to stay with her and her dog bippy. Thank you for taking care of sunny- and accommodating our late timings!
Marsha is the best! Lucy was at a home away from home while she stayed with Marsha, her son, and Bippy. Drop off and pick up were seamless. Marsha cares for her guest furry friends as if they were part of her own family. We received lots of photo updates over the 10 days that Lucy stayed with Marsha. We could tell from the photos that Lucy was comfortable because Marsha made her home welcoming to our dog, Lucy. We were very relieved to know that Lucy was in good hands and being cared for like one of Marsha's own.

We found Marsha a little last minute when our other Dog Vacay sitter wasn't available. She was very flexible and kind when we first met her. Our trip ended up not happening, so we had to cancel our initial booking. Therein lies the flexibility factor. :) We ended up booking her again in less than a month and she was eager to reunite with Missy and Marley. During our 3 days without our dear babies, Marsha was kind enough to give us what felt like up to the minute updates. It was so nice to see images of them eating food and going on walks. We would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone who is looking to find a patient and kind sitter.

We were desperate when we found out our dog's sitter is closing his business. But now it seems like we found a great place to board our dog again! Marsha is a sweet lady! She sent me updates and photos during his stay and it made us enjoy our trip not worrying him! He seems he had so much fun with her and her dog Bippy! We are very happy to have found her!

Marsha is a wonderful dogsitter! She took great care of my dachshund????
Marsha, her son, and of course Bippy were a great team as they took care of Whiskey. He was kept busy playing, walking, cuddling, and after we got home, he even looked sad as he missed the companionship of his new furry friend Bippy.
Marsha was wonderful when I met her and she seemed to understand me and Hercules's needs immediately and was very accommodating. She kept me updated with pictures of my dog and how he was doing. My roommate picked up Hercules and he said things went very well! I recommend Marsha and would use her services again in the future!

Marsha is a responsive, kind host. My shy dog was definitely comfortable, cozy, and well cared for during her winter vacay!
We booked Marsha to watch our Goldendoodle, Geoffrey, during the week of Thanksgiving. She was very accommodating of my schedule in dropping him off and when I arrived I was pleased that she was thorough in her questions about watching my dog (eating habits, any other issues, if she could walk him) and in letting me know her schedule for the week and how often she would be with my dog.

Immediately my dog felt comfortable with her. I was so glad that she sent updates and pictures daily so that I could see how my dog was doing. When I arrived to pick up my dog she was very affectionate with him and had all of his stuff nicely organized. I could see how sad he was to leave because as soon as I loaded him into my car he looked to Marsha's residence and started whimpering. It's a scary thing to leave your precious dog with someone but I felt absolutely comfortable leaving Geoffrey with Marsha and I would not hesitate to book her again and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a friendly, caring, and dependable dog sitter.
