About Mara

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

Meet the host: I'm Mara and I live in Oakland. I will tire your dog out and then pamper them until bedtime. I am happy to send photos/text updates, because I know that makes me feel at ease when I have to be away from my dog, Simba. I will ask questions about your dog prior to boarding as to make their stay as comfortable as possible. Each dog is different and I love learning each personality.

Meet Simba; He's 7 years old but has the energy of a puppy. He is a very gentle and and expressive 55lb mix. He is energetic and excited at first meeting but calms down quickly. He gets along with pretty much every dog and loves the company of a furry playmate!

Your dog can expect:

-walks around the lake/neighborhood
-dog park visits (with owners permission, of course)
-lots of belly rubs and cuddles
-bath if they get dirty. I like to send them home clean.
-plenty of exercise, socializing, and relaxing


All house-trained dogs with good temperament are welcomed in my home! I do not have a free-range outdoor space so they will have to be okay with walks for potty breaks and exercise, but we get out 3 times a day and Simba has some good sniffing spots to share.

Let me know how I can make your dog's stay fun and comfortable!

My dog had a great time staying with Mara this last weekend. Mara was very responsive to my messages and texts, and she made sure to send me pictures throughout.
Mara was fantastic! She took wonderful care of my senior pup Sera, providing her with plenty of walks, cuddles, and attention. She was also great about attending to Sera's special needs, like medication and her diet. Her dog, Simba, is a sweetheart about attending to Sera's special needs, like medication and her diet. Her dog, Simba, is a sweetheart and was an absolute gentleman around my little "granny."

Mara was also incredibly generous with the updates and photos, which I sincerely appreciated. She never gave me any need to be worry!!

Mara is a fantastic host. She was very accommodating about scheduling a meet-and-greet and pick-up/drop-offs. Our dog was happy and tired after his stay with Mara and Simba. We really appreciated the photos and updates too!
