About Marlena

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I'm Marlena... I work as a dog walker in The Heights and also have limited availability for small dog sleepovers at our home. Please note that for boarding, I can accommodate small non-shedding breeds only. They also must be spayed/neutered and housebroken.

If you would like to schedule a walk or petsitting visit, I have experience with many different breeds and sizes and can tailor the walk or playtime to meet your dogs specific needs. I always require a meet & greet upfront so that we can discuss all your needs and expectations in order to get the best possible care for your baby :)

Our two pups are our furry children and all in my care are treated as such. I am new to Houston, but have been pet sitting since 2014. (We recently relocated from Birmingham, Alabama) Please message me with any questions. I look forward to meeting you and your fur-babies!

Marlena is a Godsend. I've never left my baby with anyone outside of family, but all of the hectic logistics of a move made it necessary for Murphy to crash somewhere else for a few days and I'm so thankful we found Marlena and her babies. She was great with Murphy and her home is perfect for doggie houseguests. I completely trust her and she was great about keeping us updated on his day with plenty of photos and notes. She is responsive and I really appreciate her flexibility and her ability to calm my worries about leaving him for the first time. Her dog babies were also great hosts to Murphy and he had fun playing and doing squirrel patrol with them. I also really liked that she only took one dog or dog family at a time so there were no surprises on who Murphy would be staying with. I highly recommend Marlena!

Marlena and her husband were great! Our dog Teddy had a wonderful time staying with them and their two small dogs. Marlena sent great pictures daily so I felt confident that Teddy was being well cared for during our vacation!
Marlena was great! She was very accommodating and I really appreciated the meet and greet the week before his stay. Bentley did very well and it was the first time I've left him when he wasn't trembling. He usually eats very little while I'm gone but that was not the case with Marlena. Her dogs are small and easy going so it was a good mix. Also a bonus that she has a fenced in yard for the dogs to roam. Daily pictures popping up on my phone was reassuring. Thank you Marlena and we look forward to Bentleys next visit next week!
