Hello! My name is Marina and I am a total animal lover. Not just dogs and cats but all animals both domestic and wild. I've had many pets since I was a small child and I have a great passion and love for all our furry friends.
I have a wonderful home and safety is very important to me. We live next door to a dog park and also Holmes Run Park where I can bring dogs for a long walks. And I bring my little a 3 year old Yorkie named Itzy. Please know that your dog will be treated like my own, and I only give healthy snacks!!
My husband assists me with my pets as well. He loves dogs as much as I do and he has years of experience raising and training dogs.

If your pet requires any specific attention or has disciplinary issues please let me know. Your pet must be house broken and leash trained. Cleanliness of your pet and his/her bed are nesessary (I do offer bathing and grooming service should your pet need it). Please bring your babies toys, bed, dishes, leash, food and treats. This will help your pet to feel at home while staying with me. And if your pet is crated while left alone or sleeps in a crate, bring that too. I will appreciate you giving me any emergency contacts and your vets phone number. Please have a tag with your contact info attached to the collar. All dogs need to be spayed/neutered! "Meet and Greets" are necessary to ensure that I am a good fit as your pets sitter! Anxiety issues or excessive barking won't be accepted, sorry.

Marina is very professional she looked after Seamus beautifully. She followed our instructions of how to feed him and walk him every day and he obviously had a good time getting on with all the other dogs.
Marina was fantastic! Moxie had a blast and I was able to go away with the peace of mind knowing she'd be well cared for. Marina sent updates several times a day along with pictures which always brought a smile to my face. Marina was very attentive to my dog and her needs were met and I could tell that Moxie enjoyed her stay with her. I'm so glad we found Marina and will definitely use her services again. I highly recommend her.

Marina is an amazing dog sitter, and I highly recommend her! She loves animals which translates into excellent care. She was so diligent about sending us photos and videos of our puppy; we had tons of evidence that he had a great time going on walks and playing with toys. I don't think he wanted to leave her :-) Thank you, Marina!

Having never left my puppy with anyone I didn't know, I was a little nervous about leaving her. Marina was so good with her, taking her for long walks, playing with her and keeping her occupied and happy throughout the day. Marina was also great about sending photos of my dog and her activities, which were really fun to see. Marina is an experienced dog person and I highly recommend her.

Cooper had a great time with Marina and her sweet pup! She took great care of him and sent lots of photos to me throughout the day. He got plenty of exercise and love. I highly recommend Marina!
Marina is now my go-to for my cat when I'm out of town. She provides the best photo and video updates! I can tell she's always excited to see Cole, which makes me feel better while I'm away.
She visited my apartment in advance to meet MacGregor and he took to her immediately. I could see she was caring and calm, with much experience with dogs.
We have used Marina for both day-stays and boarding vacays ... and we could not recommend a sitter/walker any higher than we would rank Marina. She is highly conscientious, and there was never one second that we were concerned about Tchaikovsky. He is an inquisitive German Shepherd PUPPY, so it requires someone that not only knows dogs but also someone that genuinely cares about the dog and its well-being to handle the 75 lbs of puppy energy that we call Tchai. Marina even taught him to not pull on his leash when we take him for a walk! Tchai obviously adores Marina, and we had no issues with the separation anxiety that he had exhibited with other sitters. Marina gets five stars PLUS from us.

Marina was a great sitter! She was available despite our last minute request to do home visits for our Chihuahua Cecil.

She took great care of our little pup, walking him, feeding him, playing with him, and giving him treats. She also sent a ton of great pictures. One of which was so good my wife set it to her phone background!

I highly recommend Marina and will consider booking her again next time I am out of town.

My experience with Marina was fantastic. She kept me updated, sent me loads of pictures and my dog seemed very happy when I picked him up. I will use her the next time I go out of town and highly recommend her!
Excellent! She was available on a holiday weekend and took care of my dog while really treating her to a vacay. I'm sure my dog would love to go back.
Marina was so nice! She accepted my reservation last minute after my previous plans fell apart. My little one was comfortable and well taken care of. And the best part was that Marina sent me a bunch of picture updates so I could keep up with Petey's days. Actually, tied for the best part was that my dog is really really shy but he seemed to adjust to Marina and her husband really quickly; you can really tell that they're amazing with dogs.

Marina was fantastic! Her love for animals really shows. She was very attentive to Wally and spoiled him with many walks. We will definitely hire her again.
Marina did an outstanding job watching my dog Buddy on a weekend when my regular dog sitter couldn't watch him. She sent lots of pictures during the day and I enjoyed knowing that he was doing fine. Excellent care from a dedicated dog lover! I highly recommend her.

I felt really bad about leaving my cat to go on vacation, but Marina's updates every day made me feel much better! She sent so many great pictures and videos of Cole. She also sent pictures of the fresh food, water, and litter each day which was unexpected but very appreciated! I would definitely recommend her to someone looking for dependable care for their pet while they're away.

Marina is wonderful! She and her husband treat my frenchie, Noodle, like their own, and he and their dog are apparently great friends! She frequently sends pics and updates and makes me feel very comfortable and at ease! Thank you, thank you!!!
Marina is the best! She understands what it takes to make your dog and the owner comfortable when babysitting for the first time. After meeting Marina and getting a tour of her place, I felt very comfortable and confident that she would take care of my boy. She truly treats every dog as her own. You can tell she really enjoys what she does. I will DEFINITELY be using her services again!

Marina was so wonderful with Moose. She sent video and pictures every day and It was very comforting to see him happy and active. She welcomed Moose as a part of her family. Marina is a very accomplished pet care provider with much experience in pet behavior and medical knowledge. I would not hesitate to select Marina again for future visits.

Marian did an awesome job, it was our first time leaving our puppy anywhere and she made us feel comfortable and welcome. She met us outside when we got there and then took us upstairs and showed us exactly where our puppy would be at, she has plenty of room and everything was neat and clean. Throughout the day she sent pictures and updates of him playing, napping or whatever adventure they were up to so that was great. I Highly recommend her for your fur-babies :)
This was also our first time using DogVacay, the whole process was easy and smooth, the many sitter options they have for you to pick from really make it easy to find the perfect fit for you.
