About Marc

My wife and I have a spacious house with a fenced yard at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in South Arlington. I (Marc) run a business out of my home, so our pups (and any visitors) are never crated during the day. We do 2-3 walks per day, provide plenty of play time and attention, and if it's a nice day I'll let the pups hang out outside to wander our fenced yard and chase woodland critters.

We're happy to take dogs for overnights up to a couple of weeks. They'll be treated like our own during that time, including regular walks, baths, treats and affection. Any vacationing pups will surely enjoy their stay.

We post updates and photos on our Facebook page so owners can get regular notifications on how things are going and can stay in touch throughout the stay.

PS. If you're trying to request a meet-and-greet and the dates don't appear available, please just send me a general inquiry. I can probably fit you in.

If I could, I would give Marc 6 Stars.
We had a wonderful experience with Marc. He seemed relax but extremely responsible. He sent us pictures and positive messages the entire time we were away. Knowing that our "Hannah" was in safe and loving hands made our trip stress free!! Thank you Marc and Julie and their pups for taking such good care of Hannah!!
Marc and Julie were such terrific surrogate pet parents during our family trip across the country. Our one year old chihuahua mix had recently moved with us from New York to Virginia, and has been slowly acclimating to his changed environment. As a result of all the transitions he's been undergoing, he's had some nerves and anxiety. Marc and Julie were patient, attentive, and understanding. They have a great dog friendly, supervised space and maintained up to date pictures to keep us informed of the day to day which made the distance a lot easier for us to handle. We were so pleased and feel great knowing we have a wonderful resource close by when we plan our next trip away.
We had a great experience with Marc and Julie. They were very professional and I loved the daily facebook updates. They were also flexible when my flight was delayed and I had to pick up Buster an hour late. Thank you guys so much!
Marc and Julie were awesome and took such great care of our puppy Ty! I loved the pictures they posted and it made me feel so much better to know he was having fun during his stay. Ty was exhausted when he came home from all of the playtime - it was like summer camp for him! Can't recommend them enough and we will definitely use them for future stays! Thanks Marc and Julie!!!
5 stars are not enough!! Marc was great to work with and my dog returned from the stay relaxed and happy. Marc contacted me in advance to work out the drop off details and he was VERY flexible to make it work for both despite some challenges. My dog Valery is 12 years old and requires some extra love. in the past I have used other services I can see she comes back a little raddled from the experience. Not with Marc! I loved seeing the pictures updates. they showed she definitely feel at home! Nothing better than to know we were both enjoying our vacation.

Thanks Marc!
Marc and Julie were amazing! Our dogs (two crazy beagles) are not always the easiest to manage, but they came back clean, happy, and healthy. Marc was great about posting photos of the pups lounging on the sofa or playing in their gorgeous yard, and it looked like they were having an awesome time. We most definitely recommend their loving home, and look forward to sending our pups there on vacation in the near future!
Marc and Julie are *wonderful* dogsitters! They have a great warmth and enthusiasm for dogs. They made my rescue chihuahua, Cocoa, feel at ease and kept me updated with photos so I was at ease, too. Their dogs are so sweet, too! Thank you so much, Marc and Julie!
Marc and Julie are always at the top of my list when I need a dog sitter. Gus loves it so much there, he barely gives me a second look before bounding out to the backyard! I love following his adventures on Facebook and I know that he is safe and getting tons of love while I'm gone.
Cubby had a fabulous stay with Marc and Julie, and was definitely sad to leave! He's been sleeping since we've picked him up from the exhaustingly fun weekend :) It was extremely comforting to see him in such a friendly environment and also to simply pop-up facebook and see all kinds of updates on their page. Cubby is usually (almost always) scared of men, but the first picture that Marc posted was of Cubby all cuddle up beside him sleeping! That says so much to me about the kind of host he is. Thanks again for taking such good care of him.
Another great stay and sleepy pup! Thanks Marc and Julie!
Marc and Julie were great, from their responsiveness for a last minute boarding request to their Facebook page that they use to provide photo updates. All in all, I'd recommend Marc and Julie to anyone in the area looking for a great boarding experience.
Marc and Julie were always responsive and attentive. My dog felt very much at home with them and was exhausted from all the fun he had during the weekend. I felt comfortable leaving him with Marc and Julie and was so excited to see the pictures while I was away. I will definitely be keeping him there again soon!
Marc was very responsive from the time I inquired about his availability to dog-sit until the day I picked up my dog Joey from a long weekend's stay at Marc's house. I really liked the fact that Marc has two friendly dogs of his own, so there is plenty of human and dog interaction. The facebook updates were great. I didn't have any doubt that Joey was having a great time, but the photos and the updates were a nice touch. Thanks Marc for taking such great care of my dog! Will definitely hit you up next time I'm going out of town.
Marc and Julie were so wonderful and took such good care of my dog, Gus. I loved watching his activities via Facebook postings - it was clear he was having a wonderful time while I was on my business trip! Plane delays meant that I couldn't pick Gus up when expected, yet Marc and Julie were super flexible. I will definitely reach out to them in the future and I can't thank them enough for keeping my guy safe, happy, and healthy while I was gone.
Lola had a wonderful weekend with Marc, Julie and their two pups! We got texts and pictures and judging by how tired she was when we picked her up, we know she had a great time. Will definitely book again!!
My dog was well looked after, had playmates and had room to run around inside and out. That made leaving her much easier. The pictures texted while I was away made me very comfortable as well. I have used Marc twice now and will again the next time I am away.
Needed someone to watch my dog Crosby for the day somewhat last minute, Marc was very responsive and flexible. Crosby seemed quite happy when I picked him up and didn't want to leave :)
Our pup's stay with Marc and his wife Julie was awesome. She's super shy around strangers, but she warmed up to them really quickly. Marc sent us a few pictures of her with them and their adorable dogs. That greatly helped put our minds at ease while we were away. Their treatment of her and their care was fantastic. Couldn't recommend them more highly.
