About Mary

I take dogs under 40 pounds, living on two acres, one of which is safely fenced. I have been taking in dogs for 9 years in my dog friendly house (no children). I try not take more than 3 boarders in any one time frame and do not have any add-on fees. I have a lifetime of experience dealing with dogs and my dogs have been well socialized all of their lives. I do not work outside the home so can be with the dogs a great deal of the time. There are ways in my house to separate dogs if necessary. I am located 50 minutes from downtown Washington DC, one hour from Alexandria VA, 40 minutes from Manassas VA. A pre-visit is required to ensure that everyone gets along.
My quoted rate is for each 24 hour period; $2/hr thereafter.

Another great visit with Mary! When we picked Pip and Ginger up, they were happy and playful, and obviously feeling very at home at Mary's. They greeted us but then ran around the yard playing - not clinging, not anxious. Mary always responds quickly and lets us know how the pups are doing.
We were very fortunate to have Mary care for our two dogs while we were away for a week. Her property is a great home-away-from-home with a large yard and secure fencing that keeps loved ones safe. Mary clearly cares greatly for dogs, and my pups were very comfortable being with her and her mellow dachshund. When my dogs came home from Mary's, they were calm and happy. They settled in at home as if everything was normal. This shows me that they felt safe, and that transitioning between our two homes - ours to hers and back to ours - was a pleasant thing that caused them no alarm or anxiety. As she said, "Dogs just need people to feed them and be nice to them"...and she is very nice to them!
Buckley had a wonderful stay. Mary is so welcoming to the dogs and makes them feel at home. She is extremely attentive to their needs and any health issues.
Mary was really wonderful. We felt very comfortable leaving our dog with her over our 2.5 week holiday overseas and especially appreciated the photos and updates she emailed to us nearly every day. Our dog seemed to be at home, and loved running around her fenced-in yard. Four paws up!
Another great stay at casa de Mary. Stella is looking forward to next time, maybe spring break. :)
I highly recommend Mary. Her home is perfectly set up for dogs. Her well fenced-in yard has about an acre for the dogs to run around. Inside, Mary can separate the dogs into different zones, if needed. Mary addressed any concerns I had, and went out of her way to make sure my 8 month old puppy felt like she was at home. Mary sent frequent updates and pictures. It's a relief to know that our puppy has a loving home away from home, and we can be able to travel AND have a dog :). We will be back later this month for a 2nd vacay.
Fabulous as always
Mary is so understanding of dogs' needs. She makes them feel right at home in her house and also has a wonderful fenced-in yard where they can play. Mary is extremely accommodating with drop-off and pick-up times. I would recommend her most highly to friends and family.
Absolutely PAWSOME! Mary is always worth the drive.
Amazingly generous host -- my dog lovers her, she comes home exhausted and Mary is incredibly flexible with pick up and drop off. Always worth the drive!
Worth the drive every time!
We couldn't be happier with Mary's place. Abby had a wonderful time. It is so much easier to leave out of town when you know that Abby will have a nice yard to explore, few friends to play with and will be taken care with a lot of love.

Thanks Mary
I cannot recommend Mary J highly enough!!

Her house and securely fenced in yard with 24/7 doggy door access was a puppy playground for my little one. Mary was extremely attentive with providing pictures and updates while Maggy got settled in. Finally, she was quite flexible with shifting needs on drop off day and pick up times.

If I have to make another trip, Mary will be at the top of my list. Schedule a meet-and-greet and I can't imagine you'll go anywhere else!!
