About Mrs. Mary B

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I am a dog-loving widow with a lovely house, complete with a big doggie sundeck out back. My dog Shamrock also belongs to the nearby Core Creek Dog Park, where he plays/runs/ socializes with his canine pals at least once a day. I have volunteered at two different rescue groups, and champion the cause of dog rescue/adoption. I have a wonderful business dog-sitting here in my community, and wish to offer my services to other dog lovers/owners. I send out daily bulletins/updates to the dog-parents who leave their pups in my care. I am also adept at administering special diets and meds to our guests. I enclose photos of some of my clients, all of whom have also become my/Shamrock's friends! Please also know that I tailor our schedules around our guest's stays. We will also come to your home to stay with your pup(s)! Some dogs are happier in their own environment, and we are acquiescent to that fact. Shamrock is locale flexible; as long as he's with me, he's happy! For your peace of mind, I will provide for you a current Commonwealth of Pa. criminal background check, proof of safe driving record, and child care security clearance
Also!!!, please tell your friends in the DC/Northern Virginia/Maryland area that Shamrock and I would be happy to come to their homes to dog/house sit for them. After living in DC's Dupont Circle neighborhood during my late husband's 20+year-long career with National Geographic Magazine, we enjoy that area, and love going back. The same goes for NE Pa., where we have lots of friends and relatives in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and the Wyoming/Lehigh Valley, and all of New Jersey. Have Shamrock, will travel!
Should you choose to contact us (and we hope you do!), please include the proposed dates when you may be needing our services. PLEASE ALSO COMPLETE FULL INFO SECTION ON DOGVACAY TELLING ME ABOUT YOUR DOG! Please also note that we cannot take large dogs over 40 pounds. Many, many thanks for reading about us!

I feel so lucky to have found Mrs. Mary. She adores my dog and takes great care of her. On the first stay, she took the time to meet me, get to know my dog, and then introduce her to the other dogs staying. At my dog's last stay my dog was excited to be there, which was nice to see.

We were nervous to leave Vito for the first time in his life. Mary made us feel comfortable with her welcoming home and knowledge of dogs. Vito had a great time.
First time using DogVacay and Mrs. Mary and it certainly won't be my last! My fur babies were well loved and my husband and I were so comfortable leaving our "kids" in her loving care. We've already booked Mrs. Mary and Shamrock for our next vacation! Thank you for the daily pictures and take home treats for both our fur babies and human kids too! ??
