About Marybeth

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Being home and retired we both would enjoy the company of one adult medium or large size dog. A comfortable smoke-free home and a fenced in back yard in a safe neighborhood makes a good fit and a pleasant experience for both the dog and us. We enjoy playing in the yard and walking the dog and will give it our attention. We do not have any pets in our home of our own.

Reilly had a great vacay with MaryBeth and Russ. We were totally comfortable with MaryBeth and Russ immediately at our "Meet and Greet" and knew that Reilly would enjoy her stay. Reilly will be back for sure!
Great with my lab Notiq. Notiq feels at ease being there and is happy.
Marybeth and Russ are great with my Lab.
This was a great experience! Our two German Shepard Dogs were treated with kindness and love. We received several updates daily. We couldn't be happier!
This was our first time with Marybeth...we were extremely pleased with our experience. It was so obvious she wanted "Jake's" stay to be positive and "routine".....Marybeth is a very caring and detail person, would highly recommend her!!
Charli the golden doodle settled right in, even though they were the first new "sitters" she had in more than 5 years! Will definitely use Marybeth again!
Thank you for giving such great care to our Great Danes Seraphina and Rocky Blue.
Marybeth and Russ were wonderful! This was Bella's first time staying with them and they made her very comfortable. Bella really enjoyed their beautiful back yard:) Will definitely use them again!!!
The hosts were responsive and caring.
Marybeth and her husband were very nice. They had a lovely home and yard.
Communication was very good, but this was our Baby's first time away from us, and she had a hard time adjusting to her new surroundings.
We thought it best to pick her up earlier then planned.
We have had Mary Beth care for our pooch on at least 5 different occasions in the last year. Mary Beth and her husband rapidly learned to bond with Aspen. Even though Aspen is a shy dog, she seemed comfortable with them quickly. Mary Beth also has a fenced yard which is hard to come by in this area of Florida, and the outdoor neighborhood is pleasant for dog walking.
Marybeth and Russ took great care of our Samson. I enjoyed the updates we received each day, they were reassuring to know Samson was being well cared for. Their home was doggie friendly and they have a nice fenced in backyard. We will definitely use them again.
Pepper had a wonderful stay with Marybeth and Russ. He loved the freedom of running around the fenced yard. He was treated lovingly and kindly and Marybeth and Russ followed his routine completely so he felt safe and secure and well loved. They were very accommodating to us as we returned earlier than expected and were very flexible. I was given timely updates. This was our first experience with dogvacay and we can tell you that these hosts obviously enjoyed and cared for our beloved pet, Pepper. He was treated like a member of their family.
We were very pleased with the care Soldier received while with Mary Beth and Russ. They have a very nice home with a fenced backyard and some shade. The daily update telling us he was eating allowed us to relax and enjoy our vacation. Should we be in Venice again and need someone again I hope Mary Beth and Russ would be available . I am very comfortable recommending them.
Very nice people, Notiq was a good boy and seemed happy when he came home everyday Marybeth was very pleasant and a beautiful home for Hypnotiq thank you for caring for our dog Hypnotiq
Marybeth and Russ do a great job!
This was the absolutely best place for Josie while we were away. I really didn't worry as it was perfect with their situation of only taking care of one dog at a time and having the fenced yard where she could run & play ball. They allowed her to sleep on the couch and she came home happy & healthy.
This was our first experience with DogVacay. Marybeth and her husband took very good care of our Maizey, being 14 years old it was especially nice that she was the only dog there. We will definitely use them again to watch Maizey.
Sophie and Moe had a great time with Russ and Marybeth! They have a nice, fenced yard for outdoor play. We received daily updates that made going away for my husband's surgery less stressful. We will use Marybeth and Russ again
Notiq had a great day. Marybeth and Russ were gracious hosts. Would love to go back again soon.
Marybeth and Russ were terrific! We met with them before DD stayed overnight and went through DD's routines. When DD stayed they played with her, had her perform her tricks and rewarded her as we asked. Although DD was excited to see us when we returned we know that she had a good time. We will ask Marybeth and Russ to watch DD again in the future.
Mary Beth and Russ have been great. Seymour loves them and we can finally feel at ease when we leave town. With the daily updates my wife and I know that Seymour is in good hands and we can enjoy our time away without worrying about Seymour. Thank you so much!
Buddy had a wonderful day with Marybeth and Russ. They played in the beautiful back yard, had a nap in the house and ate a snack before I arrived to pick him up at 4:00 P.M. Once we got home Buddy was exhausted and needed rest after his adventure.
A very happy puppy was in bed early that night!
Our dog Tyson was with Marybeth and Russ for one night. They have a nice big yard for the dogs to run around in. Tyson seemed more relaxed coming home compared to when he has been boarded elsewhere. I like the convenience of pick up and drop off.
Marybeth and Russ were very good about accommodating us late for our two standard poodles. They really seem to love dogs and the dogs seemed to be very comfortable with them. I have picked up my dogs from other hosts in the past and noticed them being anxious or clingy. They were excited to see me when I picked them up as usual but quickly settled down and had zero anxious behaviors. This tells me that they were in a good place and treated well. They have a great fenced yard as well.
We will definitely use them again.
As always, Jake is well taken care of with Marybeth & Russ. He trots right up to their door and makes himself at home. It's so nice knowing he's happy while we are gone.
This was our second time to leave Jake . He did so good with Russ & Marybeth. It's very comforting to know he was well taken care of and had a good time also. And we have an extra bonus of living near them. It's great.
This is a great couple. They were so good with Jake. It was so nice leaving him with someone that I knew would take good care of him.
Day Two went just as fact, I think the next day (Day 3), Simba wanted to go back to Russ and Marybeth's home, despite the fact he didn't have a reservation! Their home is clean and neat and it was very clear they were kind and gentle with Simba. As soon as we arrived for the drop-off, he locked in to Marybeth and didn't even notice I was leaving. A terrific place when your dog can't be part of your plans!
Russ and Marybeth were terrific! We were in FL visiting family so our needs were fluid and so were they. When I picked Simba up after an evening of care, they advised he had been fully walked and had done all of his "business", despite record-setting cold temps. Simba seemed happy and well-adjusted when I picked him up. Would recommend this home to all in need of Venice-based dog care!
Marybeth and Russ took great care of Dash. As soon as I dropped him off, he left me to explore their backyard and never looked back. It was a good experience for all.
Baxter had a great time. The entire environment was wonderful. Beautiful home, great yard and great people. Highly recommend!
Very nice house and backyard for our Hazel. Marybeth and Russ took good care of her for the week we were gone but just wish they had been better at sharing what Hazel was doing when she was with them.
Marybeth and Russ were wonderful with Lucy! They were very enthusiastic about having her in their home, and they look forward to having her again. I know Lucy enjoyed her time in their care, roaming around their house, rearranging shoes, and snoozing in their yard! She came home a happy and relaxed camper. We were "delighted" with the experience and would definitely recommend them. Thank you, Marybeth and Russ, for taking such good care of Lucy.
