About Marilyn

42 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Decatur Dog Lovin’ in Decatur, Georgia.

I have been a dog lover since childhood. My sister and I grew up with Lady, who was a Boxer-Lab mix. Public relations has been my home-based career for over 35 years, but dogs have always been my passion. I have been a dog walker—all sizes, including a 60 pound Pointer—for several years. I do volunteer PR for Paws for Life, an organization that rescues and trains puppies and adult dogs to be service dogs and companions for disabled children and adults and military veterans suffering from PTSD.

Ralph Jr, Izzy and Ralph Sr., all my late dogs, have loved our spacious fenced in back yard and our big front yard for quickies. Our quiet dead end street just a few blocks from North Dekalb Mall is perfect for leisurely walks. All three dogs enjoyed long lives—15 years—where they were cared for until their final week.

One dog owner says his dog is so excited to see me that he jumps out of the car when they arrive.

My spacious house is a good place for your dog to relax or sleep when it’s time to stop playing. Your puppy gets their favorite food (prepared to their liking) and treats along with filtered water. I am perfectly happy if your flea less dog is used to cuddling at night. I also have a dog suite where your furry love can dream peacefully in his or her own crate. Your dog will enjoy unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime at my home.

I offer discounts for multiple dogs in the same home.

Your furry child must bathe and have all shots before the Dog Vacay stay. We will arrange a short meet and greet at my home before your pet’s first stay.

Hi, Marilyn took care of my dog while I was out of the country. My dog is a large breed, young, hyper, and she handled him perfectly. The dogs in her house are super friendly with people and dogs so it was fantastic for my dog to have play mates. Marilyn's house is definitely dog friendly and she has a huge fenced in back yard the dogs can play in. The fence is high too which is great since my dog is a jumper. I recommend Marilyn as a dog sitter and will use her again. thanks

Marilyn was very pleasant and attentive to Lola and I needs. She was very flexible to accommodate us and made Lola feel welcomed.
My dog Princess had a wonderful time with Marilyn. She took good care of my dog. This was the first time I ever left my dog with someone other than family and she made things so smoothly. I highly recommend her and we'll definetly use her again for boarding.
