About Mariann

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a spacious apartment in Towson with lots of running space and small hills.

I work full-time in Baltimore, but my grandma lives with me and is a home maker, staying home all day. So, your pup will receive lots of love and attention. About 5-6 walks per day.

Coco, my Dachshund, is a loving and friendly girl. Although she does like to play and run around, if your dog is more calm, Coco will mirror your dog's behavior.

Jeoffy, our Silky Terrier, is a good boy who just likes to eat, play, and sleep. Jeoffy is not an aggressive neutered boy.

I grew up with dogs: Scottish Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, Rottweiler, Dachshunds, and Chinese Crested are the dogs my family members have owned and loved in my lifetime. (And although I love pups of all sizes, my community restricts me from dogs over 40 lbs.)

For your dog's stay, please bring your dog's food and bowls with instructions on amounts and frequency of feeding. Also, bring a CRATE/KENNEL/PLAY PEN and a pillow that your dog sleeps on. Bringing a crate or a play pen is very important - whether it is just for a place of security for your pup struggling with separation anxiety, or a matter of personality clashes and mine and your pups need to be separated.

I am satisfied with what Mariann provide to my dog, Brandy. when i pick up her, Brandy was happy and calm. I was little worried when i left her, but Mariann send me the picture of her i felt better. I recommend her service to others.
We were very happy with Meriann and her grandma. They were so sweet and took care if our dog in such a lovely way. They care for him and also for us. They tried their best And kept a very reliable communication .
Mariann was a delightful caregiver for my Bella. She took extremely well care for her while I was away which was the first time I left here alone. The pictures were a nice bonus.
Our dog Percy had such a great time staying at Mariann's, we weren't sure he wanted to go back home with us. Mariann always responded promptly to our questions, shared a lot of pics during our trip and she was very helpful and accommodating, when our travel plans were a bit upended at the last minute. Very happy and cannot recommend highly enough!
Mariann and her boyfriend are awesome! Our two spoiled brats were pampered with walks, cuddles, and even made friends with their doxie. Communication was stellar, as well. Next time we need dog sitters I know who to call. Thanks again!
Mariann did a great job with my dog Rocko. She was very understanding of Rocko flaws and adjusted well to it. She provided me with text updates and picture updates while I was out of town. I will definitly use her again the next time I go out of town.
Mariann was really sweet about my not-so-well-behaved Lola girl. Hopefully we haven't run her away and she would watch her again in the future! Thanks again!
For a recent family vacation we used DogVacay for the first time. Mariann was an excellent introduction to the service. We received daily messages with images, so we always knew our dog was in good hands. Highly recommend.
Excellent as always, Mariann!
Mariann was an amazing person, very warm, friendly, personable, and thoughtful. All things you want when you have to find someone in a matter of hours who you can trust with your beloved dog while you're away for three days. She was awesome. Welcoming home and her little dog Coco was equally sweet. A little tough to get to without a car but if you have transportation it'll be a breeze. Mariann was terrific and I highly recommend her. Thanks, Mariann, I think Grace misses you and Coco already!
This review is a few weeks late, however I wanted to make sure I commented on the WONDERFUL job Mariann did handling my little Moxie. Moxie is such a nervous and shy pup, and Mariann really did an outstanding job. Moxie came home the way we left her, super healthy and happy. She was well fed and kept active with frequent walks. Mariann made sure to update us while we were on our vacation with texts and lots pictures. We will use Mariann for all of our future vacations.
My dog has his first visit with Mariann recently and it went well. I would have her dogsit my dog the next time.
Mariann is an awesome sitter! Zola, my dog, went right to her, which is always a comforting feeling. She sent me pictures and gave me an update as well. Moreover, I really appreciated her flexibility and last minute booking. I will definitely use services her again in the future.
Mariann did a wonderful job with my shy, cautious Kona! We try to travel with our dog as much as possible so when we do have to leave her, we put a lot of effort into finding someone who is caring, patient and organized when it comes to caring for dogs. Mariann was all of those things and more. In fact, while Kona tends to fast for a little while when my husband and I leave her, Mariann was somehow able to get her to eat full meals almost immediately after we left! Also, although Kona is painfully shy around other dogs (she usually runs away), she warmed up to Coco right away and was demonstrably sad to leave her new friend when we arrived to pick her up. Perhaps what I appreciate most was how patient Mariann was with us while my husband and I bombarded her with information about Kona's daily schedule and diet (we're first time dog owners, so we go a bit overboard). I'm sure she's heard it all before, but she listened patiently and gave us the reassurance that she cared about keeping Kona happy during our time away.

I truly can't say enough about Kona's stay with Mariann. We are so grateful to have found her and we will DEFINITELY be using her services again!
Mariann took very good care of Willow and returned her happy and healthy.
Mariann took care of our 7-month old puppy for a few nights and we were very pleased. We will definitely have her sit our Rosey again.
Mariann has taken care of Willow twice now and Willow has done well and come home happy and healthy. This visit Willow got to play with Mariann's dog Coco, a little socialization is good for Willow!
I had to make a last trip for the weekend and Mariann was great. She e-mailed me back very quickly and took in my 2 dogs. During my trip she sent me pictures and answered my texts about how my dogs were doing. She was also flexible about pick-up and drop-off times. Overall I was happy with her and my dogs came home happy and tired. I will be sure to leave my dogs with Mariann next time I travel.
Mariann was awesome with my Coco. She was quick to reply to "meet and greet," and while I was away, she sent me pics to show how relaxed and happy Coco was.
Bangles had a wonderful time with Mariann and Coco. She was treated like one of the family and looks forward to the next time she can visit.
