About Marcella

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Love,exercise,and playtime, your dog cant ask for more.Your pets will be safe while your gone. I"m also down the road from Tufts vet emergency.I have over 20 yrs experience with all types of animals , I owned Dogs,cats,birds,fish rodents and reptiles. I have fish and a hedgehog now and your dog will be the only one,(unless I have another booking the same time which I will let you know if its ok).

I live in house like apartment,and have a big yard (One without a fence) so your dog will always be on a leash with me .I will treat your dog as my own.They will get individual attention. My heart was for my Dog Reggie my black lab. I had him for 7 long years and hes in heaven now. So I would enjoy taking care of yours which brings good memories back :) ,plus I love to play and cuddle, spoil and take your dog for walks or to the parks or lake. Your dog will get lots of attention from me and my kids who are 16 yrs and 12 yrs who love dogs and miss their own..

An added bonus is I do pet and people healing. I have my own business and have flexible schedule. I can do some holiday care, just ask ahead, price custom quote, is $39 a night for that. .But, most important is attention, and exercise for your dog, he will get his or her 3-4 walks a day :)

If your dog has strong separation anxiety,or barks all day, is aggressive, or is not housebroken, he will not be a proper fit.

Looking forward to your fun dogie:)

DAILY DAYCARE SERVICE: Drop-off by 8 am and pick-up by 7:00 pm.

PLEASE NOTE: guests must be up to date on vaccinations, flea prevention and must be spayed or neutered if over 1 year old. Please ask for details.

Marcella and her family are wonderful and kind dog sitters. My doggy was happy there!
Great experience.
Marcella and her daughter took very good care of Rosie and I know Rosie enjoyed herself. I wouldn't hesitate to use Marcella again. Thanks!
Marcella was so caring and devoted to Brady during his stay. She kept me updated on everything they did together. He had a great time, I would definitely recommend Marcella to anybody.
Marcella was a wonderful caretaker of my "baby dog". He has serious separation anxiety and I was worried about leaving him, however, I got photos almost daily and I a great video clip. Charlie was very happy and it really put my mind at ease so I could enjoy my vacation with my family.
We will definitely be using Dogvacay and Marcella again!!

Chloe loved Marcella and her family. She took her for walks every day and gave me pictures of their adventures. Chloe can be a bit needy so finding someone trustworthy to leave her with is very important to me. I highly recommend her.
Murray and Ginny had a wonderful time with Marcella. She is a kind host who loves dogs and takes great care with them. They really enjoyed walks and playing with family members and were very relaxed and happy when we picked them up.
Marcella and her warm family welcomed my boy last minute as I traveled for work. He even made a little friend while there :) will definitely be back!
We really appreciate how Marcella cares for Dudley while we are away! Marcella is always happy to watch him, takes him on great walks, and always keeps us updated on how he's doing! We are so grateful that we found Marcella, and Dudley is too! Thanks so much Marcella!
Marcella is fantastic!!!! She really helped us out last minute for multiple days when we were in a bind. Her and her daughter were amazing and took great care of our dogs! They sent picture updates and kept in touch with us every day. I highly recommend Marcella for care of your dogs!
Marcella is wonderful. She is kind and compassionate. She pays attention to details so that you can enjoy vacation without worrying about your pet. I highly recommend.
Marcella was great! Our pocket beagle, Clover, is only 10lbs and a bit nervous. We typically have only left her with friends/family but this time we had a situation where we needed someone kind of last minute.
I contacted Marcella and she was very responsive and worked with me to find days/times that worked within my schedule.
Throughout the week we were away Marcella texted us pictures and updates of Clover. She was definitely treated to lots of love and even spoiled a bit (sleeping on the bed!).
Marcella took her out for walks multiple times a day and really got to know Clover's personality and catered her walks to the dog's preference.
Marcella and her family did a great job taking care of Clover. We will definitely use her service again!

I highly recommend Marcella!
We cannot say enough about Marcella and the care that she gave to our pug Maya. From the start Marcella was extremely welcoming and wanted to know as much about Maya as she could to make sure that Maya was as comfortable as possible during her stay. Marcella sent us many pictures and updates on Maya throughout our trip. Maya went on many long walks during her stay with Marcella and even came back knowing a few new tricks like "paw" and "high five"! Maya has separation anxiety and loves people and Marcella was very understanding and kept Maya with her as much as possible. My husband and I are so happy with the care that Maya received during her stay, we are looking forward to having Marcella watch her again soon!
