About Mara

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an experienced dog owner and animal lover willing to care for your best friend as if they were my own. I work 2 miles from my home so I am never far from my house. My two dogs would love to have company to play with them. We take daily trips to the dog park and love walks. I have a lot of experience caring for all types of animals. I care for a horse and rabbit as well as my two pooches. I am comfortable caring for senior dogs and dogs with medication needs.
We have a fenced in yard and are only blocks from our favorite dog park. The dogs have free roam of the house and yard when i am home. I work 8 hour shifts and come home on my break to let them out for about a half hour in between. Dogs are confined to the kitchen, dog room, and basement while I am at work which is plenty of room for multiple dogs. I also have enough room to keep dogs separated if they do not play well with others.
I look forward to spending time with your four legged friend. Please note that over the holidays (thanksgiving, christmas, and new years) my rates go up to $40 a night. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

I have known Mara since Junior High, she has an amazing heart for animals and has watched my dogs multiple times. Her resident dogs are extremely friendly and playful and Mara goes above and beyond for their care. We also board our two horses together in Hugo, MN. She again, has a heart for animals and loves spending time with them all. She exercises her dogs multiple times daily and has a great fenced in yard for them to run. She's a phenomenal human and would be great with all dogs/animals

Mara is awesome - she cared for my dogs by doing check-ins and walks at my house while I was gone for a couple nights. My dogs seemed immediately at ease around her from the initial meet-n-greet on. She's very sweet, calm and collected, and gave me the feeling she knew what she was doing and my dogs were in good hands! She picked up on our routines quickly and there were no issues while I was gone. My dogs seemed to really like her, so I'm looking forward to booking with her in the future!
