About Sarah and Mark

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! We are Sarah and Mark living in West Highland and we would love to care for your dog!

Since our beloved dog Lucy passed a few years ago we've really missed having a dog at home. Dog sitting has been a perfect match for us. We knew we'd like it but the reality is we LOVE it! We've had a heck of a good time as dog sitters on this site for over 2 years now. We care deeply for animals and truly enjoy dogs.

Our guests have frequent access to a nice backyard with a secure 6' fence. We live close to a great dog park too. Walks are included- we usually go nightly at sunset and of course its better with a happy dog.

We have no animals in the house and rarely have more than 2 guests at a time. We both mostly work from home so your pet gets a lot of attention. We understand that your dog is an important part of your family and we treat them as such.

Over time we've learned a few guidelines for our dog guests that ensure a great experience for everyone. We have a nice place with nice furniture so we require only well behaved dogs.
- Only 100% housebroken please
- Unfortunately no high energy dogs please
- No 'escape artists' or dogs that chew household objects please
- Guests must have current shots and be spayed/neutered
- Although we usually work from home, rarely there will be 6-8 hours between bathroom breaks

We usually request a meet-and-greet before the first stay to be certain its a good fit. The ideal drop off and pick up time is before 9am and after 5pm (M-F) but we are flexible and can often make arrangements to accommodate other times (weekends are often more flexible).

We typically have dogs that are good with other dogs because there is often an overlap on visits. If you have a dog that has to be the only dog here we're happy to make special arrangements. Typically this requires planning ahead by at least 4 weeks so we can block the calendar for the visit.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you and your dog!

sarah & mark were very kind. this was our first go at using dogvacay & we were quite pleased w the experience. they were flexible/accommodating of our uncertain schedule & sent updates on our pup. thank you so much!
Jack's 2nd stay was just as perfect as the first. Sarah and Mark really helped us out beyond belief by letting Jack sleepover during Thanksgiving weekend. Hard to go home for the holidays without our fur baby, but I could not feel better about it when he gets to stay with such a nice dog loving couple. He got to play with other dog pals and was so well taken care of. Sarah and Mark are the best will always be our go to for a dog boarding option when we need it!

We could not have been happier with Jack's first vacay with Sarah and Mark. We received so many cute photo updates and we knew he was having a blast while on vacay! This was our first trip home for the holiday without our fur baby, so it was total peace of mind knowing he was so well cared for and loved.

Sarah and Mark are great. They sent tons of pictures over the 10 days and we could tell our three pups were having a great time. Thanks guys!
Mark and Sarah were so awesome! They were quick to respond, super welcoming and my dog had a great time! I felt so much better that he was with people that love dogs and take really fun pictures to keep my updated! thanks Mark and Sarah!
Sarah and Mark are great and our dog seems happy staying there. We have had our pup spend multiple visits and they send great pics.
Our pup loves to stay at Sarah and Mark's house and has stayed multiple times. They are great about sending pictures and updates and very responsive. I know my dog is very well cared for and this is where she wants to be when we are not around.
Hurry Home Sara and Mark. Enjoy your trip Coco and Daisy will miss you so much! I will too. You've been the best pet sitters every!
Sarah and Mark were excellent hosts for Barley! We had some last minute travel changes come up, but they were so accommodating and understanding. They responded very quickly to any communication, and we loved receiving the regular photo updates. Thanks so much, Sarah and Mark! We will definitely be back.

Mark and Sarah are awesome! They sent us tons of updates about Russell, including cute pictures :) Russell was immediately comfortable with them, and they were great about getting background information about him beforehand to make his stay easier. They were easy to communicate with regarding drop off and pick up as well. We will definitely be booking again!

Love, love, love these guys. They are soon good to Madi. I get daily ( most of the time multiple) dogvay updates with photos from them. There is no better feeling then knowing my little babe is being taken care of and loved when I can't be here to take care of her. This time they had her for 2 weeks- and I really felt good knowing that Madi is under their care. I couldn't say nicer things about Sarah & Mark. So grateful I found them.

They are definitely my go to when I do need to travel and be away from home and I'm sure Madi would tell me the same if she could speak =)

awesome pet sitters

Sarah and Mark were great! They were flexible, responsive and uploaded many photos of our pup. Would definitely have her stay with them again!
Sarah and Mark were great! They were flexible with our flight delays and sent daily photos of our pup. Pretty sure our dog enjoyed his vacation just as much as we did.
Madi loved her time with Sarah and Mark! She usually gets anxiety being away from home but she was so calm when I came to pick her up! She'll be staying with them again soon!
Sarah and Mark are two of the nicest people I've met in Denver. They accommodated a very last minute booking and even agreed to host for another night at the last minute. Upon arriving I was immediately comfortable leaving my beloved pups with them; they sent regular photo updates so I always knew how my dogs were doing through the vacay. Should they have me back, I ABSOLUTELY trust them to take care of my dogs. I strongly recommend using Sarah and Mark as pup hosts!

My husband and I were coming through Denver for a show, and we needed a place for our chihuahua to stay for the day. We were so thrilled to find Sarah and Mark. They took fantastic care of her. They took her for a walk, and let her sit on the furniture :) Chewpy had a great time, and I'm so glad for loving dog people.

Dexter loves staying with Sarah and Mark. They send great pics and videos that help my husband and I feel at ease leaving our dog!
Sarah And Mark are great hosts! We've left our Dane, Simon in their care a few times and we have been very happy with how they take care of him. Even the extra little things like supplements or special care requests are no problem for them. Simon is always happy to arrive at their home which speaks very well to how comfortable he feels there. Highly recommend Sarah And Mark, they communicate quickly and share pictures of our boy in action. Which goes a long way to making us feel at ease. Highly recommend.

Great pet sitters and I feel very confident that my dog is in great hands with them!
Love Sarah and Mark!!!
Sarah & Mark are great! Our meet & greet went very well. All three of my dogs seemed very calm accepting of Sarah and Mark. They have a great back yard that's fully fenced with room for them to roam. We agreed that I would leave "the boys" with them over the three day 4th of July holiday. Things went very well. I got great emails and texts every day with photos of all three dogs relaxing and enjoying their new temporary home. They took the dogs for walks, doled out treats and took great care of them. They were very easy going about me being late to pick them up because of the holiday traffic too. I'd highly recommend them as dog sitters and will use them again if they will have us!

Sarah and Mark are awesome hosts. Dexter loves to stay with them!
Sarah and Mark were great with our dog, Enzi. We left them with her for a week and felt completely comfortable. They were very responsive and sent us updates/pictures frequently, which put our minds at ease! We most definitely will be using them again for Enzi's future vacay's! :)

Our dog Olive loved her stay with Mark and Sarah. They gave us picture updates every day and we never had any doubt that Olive was in good hands. Thanks again!
Charlie had a great time with Sarah and Mark. They are very good at posting pictures. They also had very convenient drop off/pick up times!
They took great care of my dog and I look forward to using them again if I have to go out of town. I would definitely recommend them.
Sarah and Mark were great! Our Beagle had a great time at their house and playing in the back yard. They couldn't have been nicer hosts and they sent some really great photos of our pup at the dog park and laying around the house (one of his favorite activities). Highly recommend!

Sarah and Mark did a great job caring for our dog. They sent pictures daily and kept us up to speed on how he was doing. Would definitely recommend them to others.
Sarah and Mark are great. Monkey was really happy at their house and we are so happy we don't need to worry about her when we travel. Thank you so much!
This was our first experience with DogVacay and thanks to Sarah and Mark, it was a great one! We received lots of photos while we were away which helped put our minds at ease and when we brought the dogs home they were exhausted. From beginning to end they communicated well and were enthusiastic about having our dogs at their place. We will definitely use them again! Thank you!

Mark and Sarah were absolutely wonderful and took exceptional care of our little princess Dina. She was tired but happy. She did not exhibit any signs of the anxiety she gets when left in a regular boarding kennel.

Mark and Sarah let her make herself at home with them and made it a great experience for Dina. It seemed like Dina enjoyed her little vacation. In addition, we received daily pictures with updates which were awesome for us while we were away. I would highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.

Sarah and Mark are awesome. I trusted them 100% with my dog, Toya. Easy to communicate with, very nice, and they loved Toya. They sent pictures daily and Toya looked very happy. I will totally book with them again and I know Toya would love to go back! Thank you guys!! :)

Sarah and Mark watched my dog over a 6 night period during the Thanksgiving holiday. This was my first experience using dogvacay and I was skeptical at first. I didn't know what I was getting in to, but I was in need of a home for my guy and I didn't want to use a kennel. I met Sarah and Mark at their house prior to sending my guy to them for the long stay. I immediately felt comfortable with them and their home so went for it. I was extremely happy with the experience and so was my guy. They did a great job keeping me updated with photos during his stay and messages about what was going on. I would recommend Sarah and Mark to anyone who is looking for a good home for their dogs when you need a good home.

My dog Zeke had so much fun! He was well taken are of, and came home absolutely tuckered out. I received lots of (adorable) pictures, and I could tell that my pup was loved while I was away. He cried as we were pulling away to go home! Will definitely be using them again.
