About Marilyn

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
At Happy Puppy Tiny Dog Boarding your little dog will enjoy the comfort of our couch and our laps while you are away from home. We have a large, deeply shaded, cool backyard where your dog can hang out anytime they want and then they can come in and sit on the couch again with us.
I am a professional dog trainer and as such can offer the best in care for your dog.
My partner, David Freeman, is a stroke survivor and has an aide to help him during the day. Anytime I'm out of the house they will take the dogs outside, supervise, and bring them back in.
Basic 'good behavior' training is included in your fee with specific training available upon request.
Returning guests dogs pull their owners back up to our door!

My husband and I were nervous about leaving our pug puppy for the first time. He was attacked by a larger dog when he was 6 months old and lost an eye, so we were very concerned about leaving him and specifically leaving him around other dogs. Marilyn was very quick to calm our nerves about everything and she backed it all up. She had us bring Artoo over for a meet and greet to see how he interacted with her dogs and other DogVacayers. Then during our week away she sent videos and pictures of him playing with his "group" in the yard. She had 10 dogs total but had them split up into smaller groups for outdoor time. He seemed to have a good week and made some friends while there. Also, if your dog stays for a week they get a complimentary bath, Artoo has never smelt better! We would recommend Marilyn to anyone looking and will probably use her again.

Marilyn is a wonderful dog sitter - warm, kind, and very knowledgeable about dogs. She was extremely responsive to my dog's needs and considerate of my schedule and needs as well. I will definitely use her services again and highly recommend her.
Our two chihuahuas can be a little picky but they absolutely love Marilyn and have a great time while in her care. Our dogs have stayed with Marilyn several times and we wouldn't want to leave them with anyone else now. Marilyn is very knowledgeable about dog behavior and will make sure your dog gets settled into the pack properly. She takes her time with the introduction of the dogs, and her house has a big secure yard for them to play and roam around in. She sends lots of pictures and comments about your babies, treating them as her own.

Basil loved his stay with Marilyn and her doggies! She is a dog trainer so it was super helpful to hear her feedback and training tips.
