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!

We left our dog Bouda with Mara for 10ish days and she was awesome! I totally felt comfortable right away leaving him with Mara and Simba. She took great care of him and even taught him some new tricks, which we're super thankful for! Bouda seemed to have a great time. Definitely recommended!

Mara was awesome, she helped me out on short notice and was incredibly welcoming when I brought Cooper over for the stay. She kept me updated while I was away with pictures of Cooper and her dog Simba hanging out and doing dog things. Coop was a happy camper when I picked him up, well exercised and well rested. It all made for a very comfortable and pleasant experience. I highly recommend and hope to have Cooper stay with Mara again!

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.
