About Marta

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had and loved dogs all my life. I have lived in my home for over 30 years and I have had boxers for over 20 years.

Currently I have 2 dogs, 2 sweeties named Bella and Ginger. Bella is a Boxer and Ginger is a King Charles Caviler. Bella is a kisser! Both of my puppies are dog and human friendly.

I have a fenced in acre that is totally dog friendly with lots of shady areas. My yard is safe and pesticide free.

Over the years I have puppy sit for many of my friends and family and decided I wanted to do more.

The dogs have run of the house and yard and sleep in my room with me at night.

My house is also dog proof.

I do insist that all dogs that stay here are dog friendly and have had all of their vaccinations.

Your puppies will have lots of fun and get lots of love here. I do tend to spoil them a bit.

My dog Gizmo was so happy when I went to pick him up. He slept on our way home (2 hours). He definitely made new friends and played all day long. Thank you Martha!
They had a great another great stay.
Boys were well looked after. Thank you.
Guys came back back like they were on vacation.Thanks Marta for being a great host.
Wonderful place for our dog..it was his second stay and Shackleton howled with delight and raced to her house...clearly a happy experience!
Wonderful experience!! We even got a video of my BooBoo playing with another doggie vacay client! I would definitely use Marta again. Thank you Marta for making our first experience a happy one!!
Patrick and Eddie had a great stay, they enjoyed the large backyard and being spoiled just like they were home. Thank you Marta for taking good care of the boys.
Marta did a terrific job caring for my dog. She really cared about the welfare of my dog!
Marta took great care of Lucy. She was very patient and helped soothe Lucy's anxiety. I would definitely use her again.
it was very pleasant and she made moonie very comfortable
Marta was great everything went very well for the first time using DogVacay. Looking forward to using Marta again.
We will definitely be a return customer! Marta is wonderful! Our labradors are so happy!
Marta was great with Dash!
this was my first time leaving my dog and it was a great experience, marta is great, her yard was so big and alot of room for the dogs to run around. and i will definitely used marta again
Very sweet and kept us updated with pictures throughout Badger's stay
Max loves staying with Marta. We feel completely confident when we leave him there
Marta was great! She was very accommodating. We were unsure if our Knuckles was dog friendly & Marta took the time to do a meet and greet with Knuckles and her other paw friendly guest. She knew how to introduce and make Knuckles feel welcomed. Knuckles enjoyed her time with Marta and we would leave Knuckles with her again.

Marta is a very kind and flexible fur babysitter! We were able to set up a very quick meet and greet for a last minute dog boarding for a week. She has a lovely home and gorgeous back yard that the pets all play in! We loved getting the amazing texts from her throughout the time we were away of our dog doing fun things. The best part is, she loves Marta's dogs as well! So we could tell she hated to leave! Marta's home will definitely be a second one to our pup in the future for all of her dog vacas.

We were comfortable with Marta and her large fenced in yard from the first visit. When we returned to pick up the dogs, they were fine and relaxed. Marta sent photos every few days.
Our boys had a great time on their vacation at Marta's place! Bodhi has been raving about the pool non stop since he got home. She was very flexible with our pickup and drop off arrangements. Her yard is huge and completely fenced in. Marta takes great care to make sure they are safe and cared for. She even groomed our dogs and removed their knots! We have already booked Marta for our next trip.
Thanks so much for taking great care of them.

We're so happy we found Marta. She has many years of experiences with dogs, especially boxers. That made us feel so relieved and comfortable leaving our energetic 11-month old boxer with her. Marta's place is definitely a dog vacation/retreat for the pups with the massive yard the pups can play in and the very loving and comfortable home the dogs can all come inside and rest in. Marta is really great with all the pups and she even gave us some great tips we weren't aware of for our pup. We are definitely going to have Marta take care of our pup again the next time we are out of town.

Stella had a blast and came home exhausted :)
We left our five month old pup for the day with Marta and felt completely at ease. Marta sent pictures throughout the day and allowed us to pick her up in the evening on our way home. We would definitely use Marta again!!
We left our 5 month puppy Coco with Marta for 7 days. We missed Coco so much but Marta sent us pictures everyday which made it so much easier. It was clear Coco wasn't missing us half as much as we were missing her. She had a wonderful time running around in the big fenced in yard and socializing with dogs and humans. She had a vacation of her own. When we brought her back home, we could tell she missed Marta's place!

My pups had a great time on their vacation with Marta and Laurie. They had a huge yard to run and play and explore. They got along really well with Marta's pups, too. Dog-friends for life! Geoffrey and Brody didn't want to leave!
Our dog Tommy was very well cared for by Marta. He was very happy to be with her while we were away. Marta was very understanding and considerate about him. We will certainly board him with her again.
Sasha had a great stay with Marta. No concerns as I knew she was well taken care of. She loved the fenced in yard. Dawn M
Penny stayed a week with Marta and her dogs. Penny loves being able to run with Marta's dogs in her large fenced yard and having the opportunity to play with other dogs. She adjusted quickly. Marta sent us photos of Penny enjoying herself and looking very relaxed. We were very pleased and will return. Thanks for looking after her, Marta.

Martha is very friendly and every time I inquired about Casper while away, she assured me that he was doing well and playing with other dogs. She made sure that I wouldn't worry about him and that feeling let me enjoyed my trip.
Marta was great! Our dogs are what I'd call higher energy than some. Marta was very easygoing and made us feel completely comfortable with leaving them in her care. She has 2 cute dogs of her own and wasn't worried about having 2 more. She sent us pictures every day which we love because we miss our dogs like children when we are away. She is a great host and we would be happy to recommend or use her ourselves again in the future! Thank you Marta:)

Marta, was the best! This was the first time we have left our child/dog for more then one night. Marta sent daily updated pictures to show us how our love was doing. Marta also cooked him fresh food in the morning and even let Prince jump in the bed with her. This was his first time around other dogs and she provided a GREAT atmospher. I 1000000000% trust Marta and she gives the special care that you want given to your dog. She is the Best! Will use her again!!

It was Julia's first stay with Marta. Marta took great care of Julia. She sent a picture every day,by looking at the pictures i knew that Julia feels at home even though it was her first stay there.
Julia seemed very happy when i came to pick her up. I would defiantly use Marta again.
Thank you,
Hadas

Our Golden Retriever, Lady, had a great initial visit with Marta and her dogs, Ginger and Bella. Her two night stay over T-giving was also very good. Marta has a big fenced in yard for playing and exploring, she offers convenient drop off and pick up times, and Lady ate the best she's ever eaten vs. when we left her with a kennel. Marta also posted a couple of play pictures for us to view during Lady's stay. Lady came home very tired from all the activity with her new friends but we could easily tell what a fun time she had.

Thank you Marta first for accepting my last minute reservation during the BUSY holiday weekend. In spite of your plans you still had time for Margarita. Based on the pics you shared it seems she had lots of fun! Again, THANK YOU!! "CJ"
Marta took good care of my 7 month old cavalier Leo. She was very friendly and her own dogs were gentle.
This was my dog's third stay with Marta since August 2015. She seems to really love it there. I can tell because she is so excited when our car approaches the house and then she can't wait to run inside and play. Marta has two dogs of her own and they all get along pretty well it looks like.

It's a little bit rural so the back yard is an enormous park with big deck and a swimming pool for hot weather. Marta has a large doggy door so they can go in or out at their leisure. I'm so glad to have found Marta's place for Jelly to stay.

Marta was very friendly and took great care of our dog. She sent updates through out the weekend. Also, there is plenty of room for dogs to play in the large fenced in back yard.
I was worried about my dog going to a new dog sitter because she is 16 and needs some special attention. Marta was great, she made sure Kimba was comfortable and happy. Kimba loved being around the other dogs. One night when Kimba was anxious, Marta held her on her lap, and when it was time for bed she warmed a towel and put it around Kimba to keep her calm. I will definitely use Marta again!

Marta was a wonderful, accommodating host! During our meet and greet we instantly felt comfortable in her cozy house and big, dog friendly yard. She sent pictures & updates while we were away, and we had no doubt our dog was very well taken care of. We'll definitely be requesting Marta the next time we go away and highly recommend her!

Thank you Marta for making Linus' first DogVacay experience a wonderful one! We were able to thoroughly enjoy our time away knowing he was in loving and caring hands. Marta's home is a doggy paradise and he had lots of room to run and play. He made some new friends too! We would recommend Marta and definitely use her again! Thank you Marta!

We absolutely love Marta, but not nearly as much as our dog Prince does. Even though she's 35 minutes from our home, we would never think of leaving Prince anywhere else. This was his third stay with her and her adorable dogs Ginger and Bella. We left him for 10 days. Throughout our vacation, Marta sent us photos and videos to keep us smiling. Our only concern was that he wouldn't want to come home because he was having so much fun at "Camp Marta." We can't say enough good things about her and the wonderful doggy vacay experience she provides. You can't go wrong!

I left Lucky with Marta for 2 weeks. Marta was very caring and attentive and sent me Lucky's pictures while I was away. Marta has a dog friendly house and a huge backyard. Lucky had a great time!
This was our first experience leaving our girl, Abby and I was really nervous, especially with all the other dogs staying with her, but she had a great time! Marta sent lots of pictures and we got to see how relaxed she was all week. She went swimming for the first time and bonded with all the other dogs. She is still exhausted from all the exercise :) Abby kept going over to Marta to get pets while we were greeted by all the other dogs, so I can tell she bonded with her too. It was a great vacation for Abby too :) I have already recommended a friend check Marta out because they need a pet sitter. The dogs are obviously loved...oh, and she cooks them breakfast too! Thoroughly spoiled. ...just the way we like it :)

I've never used DogVacay or left my dog with anyone other than family, so I was a little nervous. However, Marta eased my nerves once I met her at the meet and greet! It was very apparent how much she loves, cares and understands dogs. Marta's house is extremely dog friendly and her backyard is a dog's paradise! Bella, Ginger and the other dogs there were friendly and took to Polo well. He was exhausted the rest of the day from running and playing after we picked him up. Now he's nowhere near as excited to go outside in our backyard after playing in Marta's all weekend! This was a wonderful experience and we've already reserved another vacay for this month. Thank you Marta for taking great care of Polo!

Marta is a wonderful host. It seems like our dog had a wonderful time at her house. I highly recommend Marta to everybody. She is the best!
We had never left our dog with anyone but family before, so we were pretty nervous about leaving him, but Marta was great. You can tell she really loves and understands dogs. She took wonderful care of Casey and she even let him sit on her lap as much as he wanted/needed. She kept in touch with picture updates which was great! Her home is very dog friendly and her 2 dogs are very friendly as well. Casey had no problems getting along with them right away, even at the meet and greet. I'm already going to schedule another vacay with her again!

Marta was amazing. Upon meeting her, I immediately felt comfortable. She is warm and caring and is very familiar with the needs of all types of dogs. Her expertise left me with no worries leaving my pup with her for the week. Marta has an amazing yard and beautiful home where the dogs can play all day. Even better, her two female dogs are wonderful hosts as well. She went above and beyond sending picture updates all day everyday. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a loving home to leave their dog.

Marta us great. The house and the huge yard are awesome. I had never boarded a dog before, I had always had family around to take care of them and I was a little apprehensive. After the meet and greet and Marta's home it was obvious how dog friendly her home is. My dog immediately took to it and the other dogs that were already there. The pictures Marta sent were great. Bella had a great time and was sad to come home as the dogs there are extremely social and easy to get along with. This was a great experience.

The entire experience - from Meet n Greet to pick-up was wonderful. Marta is a caring and knowledgable doggy momma and sitter. We were, honestly, afraid our puppy would not want to come home with us :). She kept in touch with pictures and text during our weekend trip, making us feel less guilty about leaving him. We've already reserved this weekend. You can't go wrong with Marta!

We had our dog Duke stay with Marta for the first time this past weekend. He had a great stay. Marta seems highly responsible, and genuinely seems to care about the welfare dogs. I will definitely use her dog sitting service again in the near future.
Marta was a pleasure! We had to contact her last minute for a reservation and she was very quick to respond and accommodating. From the beginning I could see that she truly does love the dogs...Max took to her immediately! While we were away, she texted me pictures of Max and it certainly looked as if he was enjoying himself with her dog Bella...what a beautiful, gentle girl. Marta also has a very large fenced in yard that the dogs have access to anytime via a dog door. Thank you Marta for taking such good care of my boy. I think he misses Bella!

I had never "left" my dogs with someone I didn't know personally and was very nervous. Upon meeting Marta, I saw how much she loved her dogs and the response that I got from mine were of love and kindness.
Marta was fantastic! She put me at ease. She was loving and kind and able to put me at ease when she knew that I was sad to leave my pups.
Her dogs ( Bella the boxer & Ginger the cavalier) we amazing!! Bella being a big dog, made me nervous, but she was as sweet as a pup and loving.
My dogs really did get spoiled as Marta sent me updates almost every day!!
I will certainly recommend Marta for dog loving and vacay!!
Thank you
Marta, Bella and Ginger
ps
Cooper & Rosie miss you!!
