About Marnie

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a certified dog lover. I have been fostering for local dog rescues since 2003. I have been fostering for the current rescue based out of Northville since 2008. This is a mixed breed organization so I have experience with many breeds, energy levels, discipline levels and ages. I currently have one dog of my own a 13 year old Lab Mix and we are also raising a Leader Dog for the Blind. We have fostered dogs of all sorts in the past. We traditionally fostered puppies so we have a ton of experience with potty training, puppy kisses, puppy silliness and their high energy. In addition, I also understand the needs of senior and disabled dogs. I did hospice for one of the rescues dogs, a German Shepherd, that was suffering from demyelination of the spin (a form of MS). He was not adoptable due to his condition. He spent the last year of his life with my family. We provided all the necessary oral medication and set up our home to assist him with his mobility limitations.

When it comes to high energy dogs I believe in the philosophy that a happy dog is a tired dog so walking, running and playing are key strategies while caring for them. Mellow and senior dogs are provided care that best fits their needs. Dogs are family members and are treated with great love and respect in our home.

I have a home office so I am home all day other than having to run errands or a meeting. If your dog prefers having a crate to cuddle up in, I can have that available, otherwise they are welcome in all areas of our home to relax and lounge were they feel most comfortable.

Marnie was GREAT! She did an amazing job taking care of our young and energetic Australian Shepherd at her house for nine days while we were on vacation. She sent us pictures and communicated with us daily.

It was so nice knowing that Capy was in such good hands while we were away. We would definitely recommend working with Marnie and would be comfortable booking with Marnie in the future.
Thanks so much!

Leaving my dog-child for nearly 3 weeks is not an easy thing to do but I am worry-free with Marnie! It is obvious that she is very caring and compassionate. She kept me updated with frequent pics and texts including those taken on their daily walks. I have used her before and I will use her again! Highly recommend!

Marnie and her husband took excellent care of my pups! I can't say enough kind words about them! She was very good with my dogs and was able to provide them with much appreciated attention. She took my lab out for walks nearly every day & she gave lots of cuddles to my shih tzu. They both needed medications while they stayed with her and she was very conscientious and diligent with administering these to them. I will definitely have them vacay with her again!
