About Mary and Sue

Our Home - Dogs are welcome throughout our home and our yard. We have tile floors and dog-friendly furniture. The dogs sleep in their beds downstairs at night, or with Mary in her room, if they prefer. Our backyard is also dog friendly. It is well-fenced, and offers room for the dogs to run and play ball or frisbee. We have a dog door that can be left open or kept closed/locked, depending on what is best for your dog.

Our Dogs - Both our dogs, Copper and Chloe, are certified “AKC Good Citizens!” Copper is a four years old, 16lb. Spaniel mix - a rescue from the Lancaster shelter. He loves people, snuggling and dog treats! Chloe is a 9lb. three year old Pomeranian and Chihuahua mix, rescued from the Burbank Shelter. She loves playing with Copper, snoozing under the chair in our family room and fetching her toy rabbit. Copper and Chloe are waiting to nap and play with your dog!

About Us - We will feed, play, love and attend to your dogs needs while you are away. Mary has over two years experience volunteering at a Veterinarian’s office - assisting with exams and procedures; caring and exercising dogs in the kennel area. A lifelong animal lover, she will give your dog just the right combination of love, fun and healthy routine!
Sue, Mary’s mother, helps out with our dog guests, giving extra attention to your dog when needed. She also attends to Copper and Chloe so they don’t feel left out. As you can see, your dog becomes one of the family at our Doggie Daycare!

Let’s Meet!
We would love to bring our dogs to the park for a “Meet and Greet!” with your dog!
We will introduce our dogs to your dog (one at a time!) and let them meet on neutral ground. After meeting, if you and your dog would like to visit our home, it is just a short walk away.

For inquiries about special day rates, pick-up/drop-off or other custom quotes please message us!

Our dog Dingo spent a week with Sue and Mary. Sue sent me pictures every day so I wouldn't miss or worry about Dingo. He was very Happy when we picked him up, and I think that Dingo really felt like he was at home with people who loved him...We would definitely continue to use them
Kelly returned from her stay at the Brown's home, relaxed and calm! Her boarding at kennels in the past always left her anxious and tense for days.
Mary and Sue Brown were so delightful and professional to work with. They obviously know dogs
and what they need to remain comfortable. Thank you
so much, Mary and Sue, and all of the DogVacay
group who helped me make this visit possible. We
expect to travel again in May, and will book that
appointment shortly. Mary & Dick Flynn
Jodi had a great time with her new friends! Mary and Sue made her feel right at home. (Including letting Jodi sleep in Mary's room.) I felt completely at ease leaving her with them. I'm so happy we've finally found a safe, comfortable and fun place for Jodi to stay when we are out-of-town and can't take her with us. THANK YOU!!!
Great service.
I'm so glad I met Mary & Sue! They are so friendly and their house is very welcoming to all dogs. They took good care of both my pups and my mind was at ease when I was sent picture texts of my smiling babies :) I will be using them for all my future pet-sitting needs.
Mary and Sue were wonderful! Seasoned veterans with Dog Vacay, they were so professional and obvious animal lovers. I felt so comfortable leaving my two pups with them, even though it was my first time using Dog Vacay.
Mary & Sue welcomed our Miss Maggie into their home as one of the family. Knowing that our Maggie was in a loving home with playmates and a fenced yard gave us peace of mind to enjoy our vacation. We couldn't be happier with the entire experience. It is certainly NO comparison to a kennel. There's no doubt in our minds that we will call upon them for ALL of our trips out of town. THANK YOU!!!
Mary was great with Dexter! Very accommodating and flexible. Available as soon as we needed her - even for a last minute stay! Took great care of Dexter, texted us photos and updates and even gave him a personalized bag of dog treats when he checked out. Wonderful!
