About Marissa & Dennis

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*We welcome SMALL and MEDIUM sized dogs for boarding and day care! Unfortunately we cannot accept dogs larger than 30 lbs or puppies of large breeds (>30lbs adult).
**We do dog boarding for puppies who are 6 months or older. Puppy must be house trained and there is a 3 night minimum for dog boarding for new puppies (this requirement does not apply to puppies we've sat for in the past). We do not board puppies of large breeds (>30 lb adult) and young puppies < 6 months old. (Holiday rates for puppies are: $45/puppy daycare, $55/night boarding)
***We do not offer house sitting services.

We're Marissa and Dennis, a dog loving couple living in Glendale! We have a Jack Russell/Puggle mix named Apollo, and he loves making friends and snuggling! Marissa works from home and Dennis has a flexible work schedule, so your dog will have plenty of company (both human and canine :)). We live in a great first floor unit with hardwood floors throughout in a quiet residential neighborhood with easy street parking and close to the hiking trails.

We both have experience handling animals of all types—Marissa volunteers with the West LA Animal Shelter, and Dennis has grown up with dogs and cats all his life. We tailor each vacay to your dog's personality and energy level. High energy dogs get hikes and long walks, low energy dogs get plenty of nap time and playtime at home. Both types get lots of cuddles and love!

Please send us a request and we look forward to meeting you and your pup!

For overnight boarding stays, your pup may be picked up within 2 hours of the drop-off time for no extra charge. (ex: for 1 night boarding and 9am drop off, pick up by 11am next day.) For pickups after this 2 hour grace period, it will be $10 per additional hour, up to our current daycare rate ($30).

Please communicate your drop-off and pick-up times before you confirm your reservation. We understand that sometimes delays happen for reasons outside your control, such as flight delays or road traffic. However, please be courteous and update us promptly if that's the case.

We understand that every dog is unique and we limit the dogs we take to provide them the individual attention they need during their stay. However, we do not provide 24/7 care and even though someone is home 90% of the time, from time to time, we have to step out temporarily for household errands during the day. So if your dog has extreme separation anxiety characterized by excessive barking/whining if left alone for short periods of time (1-2 hrs at most), and/or your dog has barking related concerns, we won't be able to take him/her.

Marissa has done petsitting for friends’ and has volunteered at the WLA Animal Shelter, and her adorable little rescue, Apollo, is super friendly and always looking for playmates.

She lives in a modern security building with a pup-friendly vibe, including a “woof-top” patio with dogwashing stations and room to play.

Her apartment has a safely enclosed balcony with a view of the pool, so your pup can people-watch and catch some rays during their vacay!
It was great working with Marissa & Dennis. They took care of my two dachshunds for the weekend. A little too heavy on the texting but overall a good job.
Marissa was absolutely delightful! She was so kind throughout the entire process & made sure we felt OK! She sent updates and photos throughout the day to show us what our dog was up to & double checked prior to doing anything she wasn't sure of! Overall, we are very happy with Marissa & are grateful she took care of our dog!
Marissa & Dennis are great, flexible and caring hosts that made Quincy feel comfortable and at home. I look forward to continued Vacay days at their pad!
The hoste were wonderful. They update me all day with pictures and videos about my sweet dog activities.
Amazing! They always seem to get my lazy dog up and moving. The pics and videos help me with my blues while I am away from my little man. They even bathed him which can be dangerous!
Marissa and Dennis were very welcoming and professional. They have one dog of their own, and my dog got along very well with him. They even swapped crates one night and also napped next to each other. The apartment is clean and safe and in a quiet section of Glendale. They took very good care of our dog, monitored her eating and how she seemed to be getting along, sent us regular updates and sent us photos. Our dog was their only "client" during our weekend away from home, which we appreciated.
Marissa and Dennis were fabulous! Our dog is a rescue with separation anxiety and she did incredibly well in their care. We received regular updates along with adorable photos and they were very attentive to Pixie's needs. It was great to know our pup was in good hands while we were away. We will definitely have Pixie stay with Marissa, Dennis and Apollo again!
These guys are fabulous, no hesitation recommending them.
Marissa and Dennis were great with Frodo and Pippin! Pippin is 14 and on special eye medications. Marissa handled that wonderfully. The pictures sent us showed happy dogs making our get away much more worry free.
Marissa and Dennis sent me regular updates and pictures. They took him on a great hike and he was truly exhausted when he came home! He had a fabulous time!
Marissa was amazing! She took great care of our Yorkie. I think he may have even been sad to leave :) She sent updates and pictures a few times and day (sometimes even more) and made me feel like he was in great hands!
very flexible, accommodating, and attentive to the dogs
Marissa and Dennis were great! Really flexible around my schedule and they sent me lots of updates to assure me that my pug was all settled in with them.
Marissa and Dennis were awesome ! I received text updates and pictures everyday - a few times a day. They kept my dog active and they seemed to genuinely care that my dog was happy and healthy. They also gave me updates on when he ate, slept and went to the bathroom. Overall, I am very impressed with them and would absolutely use them again when I go out of town. I also think my dog had an awesome time hanging out with their dog Apollo.
They took my booking for daycare last minute and an early check in at 7am which was amazing. And took my dog deejay to a hike.They are on top of everything.i would highly recommend them!
Marissa and Dennis are great! Our 15 yr old dog Waffles stayed with them over a long holiday weekend. When we dropped Waffles off, Marissa really made everything so simple and truly put us at ease. We received several picture and message updates about his activities during his stay. I've been telling all our friends about dogvacay and I highly recommend Marissa and David's place if you want your pet to be happy and well taken care of.
Marissa and Dennis took great care of my dog Suki while I was out of town. Suki was actually attached to Marissa when I picked her up, so cute.
She had plenty of exercises and seemed quite content. I'm glad I was able to find great hosts for Suki.
Will definitely book Marissa and Dennis again for my next trip.
I feel totally confident leaving my dog Ringo with Marissa and/or Dennis for dog sitting. They are both very pleasant and responsible, take great care of my dog and Ringo enjoys going over to their place! They update me with pics during the day of what she is doing and I feel very at ease knowing Ringo is in their care. Marissa and Dennis are great and I would definitely recommend them to others in need of doggie care.
Marissa and Dennis S are great host for my dog, Waggs. They send me pictures and even video regularly which I really thank them for that. The needs of Waggs was taken cared of even administering the meds. I will surely book Waggs again.
Marissa and Dennis are great hosts and Buddy really enjoys staying with them. Highly recommended.
AMAZING! Auggie and Apollo took to each other so quickly I was shocked as he normally is shy around new dogs. Marissa kept giving me videos and pictures of Auggie when he did something cute and was in constant communication with me. I will definitely book with them again, I think he misses his new friend!
We had to find someone to take care of our Max on short notice and we were so fortunate to of met Marissa and Dennis. We only had Max for one month and he was only three months old, for us it was hard to trust complete strangers to care for our new addition to the family. They were AMAZING, they treated Max like their own! They truly love dogs in every aspect. They fed and followed our feeding plan and also gave some great tips to train Max. They were very responsive sending photos and videos daily to put us at ease that they are taking great care of Max. Anyone who needs a sitter Marissa and Dennis should be on the top of the list. And their dog Apollo is such and awesome dog and was very nice to Max acting as his older brother. The updates and stories Marissa gave us about Max warms our heart as if he is just away on a "Summer Camp" with other dogs. I'm sure to call them again if we need someone to take care of Max! These folks truly love animals and caring for them! To me there are no others I would trust to take care of Max.
Great hosts, Buddy loves staying with Marissa and Dennis. Thank you!
Marissa and Dennis were great with our dog, Watson, during his vacay, even though he had some separation anxiety and accidents. They're great with dogs, and we felt very comfortable leaving him in their hands.
I suggested Marissa to my boss when he needed a dog sitter on short notice for his 3-year-old dog Rudy, and she went above and beyond what was necessary. She kept me updated in case something went wrong while he was out of town, and she was very respectful of his preferences. Thanks for helping me leave a good impression at work! :)
Marissa and Dennis started watching my Olive for daycare bi-weekly since I started my job with very long hours. They're flexible, they send me lots of adorable photo updates, and Olive, who's normally pretty quiet and sleepy, gets super excited when she gets dropped off with them! She also has a very specific and meticulous diet, which they've respected and carefully followed instructions for. Trust your lovebug with them! Maybe they'll get to meet Olive!
Ollie had a great time, and we got lots of good photo updates. Marissa and Dennis were very attentive to his needs, and let us know right away when he had some stomach troubles. We really appreciated knowing that they were so on top of his well-being.
Marissa and Dennis took amazing care of my Simon. They even made sure he was entertained and exercised with a nice doggy friendly hike. We will definitely be using them again.
Marissa and Dennis were great host! My dog recently had spine surgery and is paraplegic. Marissa and Dennis took great care of her and made sure she was fed and cleaned properly. They also sent regular updates and pictures.

Their dog, Apollo is very friendly. I would highly recommend their services.

Thank you for providing Una a lovely home in my absence.
