About Mary

I live in a sunny and clean apartment in a dog-friendly, doorman building on the border of Kips Bay/Murray Hill and live close to the Madison Square Park dog park. Given that I like to keep my apartment nice and clean for your dog during their stay, I wipe down/wash all paws for every dog that I sit after walks as well as baths if needed.

I am a responsible, non-smoker and former dog-owner/current dog lover. I currently do not own a dog, but I grew up taking care of and training my family's maltese. Your dog will have a room with a wonderful view and will be given lots of walks and love. I am happy to give your dog as much exercise and attention as he/she is used to so walks during lunch wouldn't be a problem. As it is important for the parents to know how their dog is doing, I keep them updated on their activities via photos/videos/emails.

I prefer to dogsit small to medium sized dogs so your dog has plenty of space to run around and play and typically I only watch one dog at a time in order to ensure your dog receives the proper amount of attention.

Please consider me for your dog's next staycation!

Mary was great. She took good care of BAILEY for us. She was flexible on the drop off and pick up times. Bailey is a 10 years old mini schnauzer with diabetics and separation anxiety who requires daily insulin injections.
Mary was wonderful!! Oriana clearly adored her. I got plenty of photos of Oriana going on walks, going to the park, and lounging on the couch.
My dog Kai had a great stay with Mary over the 4th of July weekend! She kept me updated with pictures of my happy pup throughout the weekend which kept my mind at ease. She was very flexible in pickup and drop off time - especially for such a busy travel weekend. Kailani will definitely have another vacation with Mary!
Mary was awesome! We left our dog with her for a week and we loved all the pics and updates. I definitely recommend Mary and will book with her again.
Mary is the best!
Our pug Pablo had a great stay with Mary! We loved getting daily pics and really appreciated it when Mary reached out with specific behavior questions - it was great knowing that Pablo was getting the same commands and reinforcement while we were away. We came home to a happy pup and would absolutely recommend Mary!
Mary was wonderful and so accommodating. It was my first time leaving/boarding Belly since I got her, and I felt comfortable -- especially after Mary sent the cutest pics of her getting lots of love. Thanks so much.
Mary, my apologies for neglecting to write this sooner!
My one year old Shiba stayed with Mary for five days and I was completely happy with the whole experience! She sent me regular updates, cute pictures, and my dog really did seem to love her (which is pretty rare for Shibas!)

I would definitely recommend Mary to anyone looking for a an amazing dog sitter!
I had a great experience with Mary as my first dog sitter for my newly adopted Winston! She was so nice and flexible to schedule with. I was very appreciative of the pictures and updates during his stay. Winston had so much fun with her! Mary was great, and I would love to use her as a sitter again in the future!!
She sent plenty of pictures and my dog looked happy and healthy when he returned.
Mary was an excellent host for our Mini Goldendoodle pup, Maultsby. She sent my husband and me lots of photos and updates, which kept us at ease - this was our first time leaving Maultsby with a sitter. She even taught him how to give paw! Such a great experience - definitely recommend Mary to anyone looking for a responsible, caring dog sitter.

One note - her apartment is a bit far from the subway, so plan on taking taxi if the weather isn't nice...totally worth it for how great she is! :)
Mary was great with Miko.
Mary was great, very responsive and always sent us updates on Bailey.
Very flexible and a great host for our pup!
Mary was amazing! It was my first time having someone other than family/close friend watch my dog and from our first meet & greet, I knew my dog would be very comfortable there. She kept me updated throughout the weekends with texts & pictures and my dog came home very relaxed. We will definitely be back!
Mary was great with Miko! I would definitely recommend her.
My pup Janey had a great stay with Mary! I feel she was cared for very well. Thank you, Mary!
Mary was a wonderful host for my morkie Dixie! Dixie has stayed with Mary twice now and I always look to see how she reacts to other people before I leave her - and she was beyond excited to see Mary both times! Mary sent regular text message and picture updates to keep me up to date on what Dixie was doing while I was gone. It was great to know she was in good hands!
Mary was great!! She was very flexible with drop-off and pick up times and she kept me updated daily with emails and pictures. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a clean, safe home for their pets next stay. I will definitely be booking Mary again as a pet sitter for Sadie.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mary and Jonathan!

My long haired Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, is my pride and joy. I usually take her along with me on my travels. However, this time, I was unable to bring her along and was beyond nervous about leaving her for 5 days. However, Mary put all of my worries to rest right away. From the moment I walked Tink into their apartment, I knew she was going to be very well taken care of.

Mary and Jonathan were so great with sending text message updates and photos throughout their time with Tink and it was so relieving.

I could not recommend Mary enough. She truly treats your dog as if it is her own and goes above and beyond to make them feel at home. I will absolutely be using her again in the near future!
All great! Would definitely leave my dog with Mary again!
Mary was a great host for Jiggs! I would recommend her to anyone.
Mary was AWESOME! She was very easy to contact and meet up with for our Meet and Greet and made the whole process very easy. Mary was very responsive and sent me pictures of Tee on numerous occasions and he looked like he was having so much fun and very comfortable in his home for the weekend! I was definitely very pleased and was able to enjoy my vacation without having any worries. I will be using Mary again very soon!!
Mary sent pictures daily and made me feel at ease while on vacation. Her apartment is sort of set up to accommodate the dogs, with sheets on her couches so that they can roam freely. I have already booked Mary twice now, and will look to her again in the future.
Mary took great care of Mattie while I was away. She sent pics every day and I could see the smile on Mattie's face! So happy that I could relax and enjoy my vacation knowing my baby was in good hands. Thanks, Mary!
Mary was great! Sent regular updates of Mumford and he seemed very happy after his stay. Thanks again!
Mary truly is a great host. This is now the 2nd time we've used her and plan on more in the future! She is very accommodating to scheduling drop off and pick ups. My 9 yr old yorkie comes back home happy and healthy!
Mary is a fantastic host. She did a wonderful job taking care of my puppy! She kept my dog happy and very active. I really appreciated that Mary sent me regular updates and pictures. She made the process stress-free and easy - she was flexible with timing of pick up and drop off, and she always responded to my texts promptly. I will definitely be using Mary again, it is so nice to know that my dog is with someone trustworthy and caring when I am away!
We had our shiba inu stay with Mary again and had some fun photos of him while we were away that she sent. Also, he had a seizure at the same time and I'm confident Mary comforted him as he recuperated. Thank you!!
Mary was a fantastic dog parent for Niko while I was away for the weekend! She kept in touch with messages and pictures and Niko was happy and healthy when I picked him up. It was a smooth and easy experience.
Mary was amazing with our dog and with giving us constant updates. We were stress free knowing that our dog was being taken care of really well. She'll definitely be our go to person the next time we're in need of dog sitting service.
Mary is awesome! Safe, clean environment for my little pup. Mary sent me updates via text while I was away. I plan on using her in the future!
Mary spoiled my dog and sent me plenty of pictures of him enjoying his vacation. She was also flexible about pick up and drop off, which was great.
Mary is the best!!
Our experience could not be better. Mary and Jonathan are really great dog sitters. Our dog Dablin really enjoyed his stay with them!
They sent us photos and videos of Dablin every day. Both of them were very communicative with us, and most important, they were really caring and affectionate with Dablin. We┬┤ll love repeat!
Mary made Louie feel right at home, letting him pick a favorite spot to sleep. She walked Louie along the river and sent us pictures of him looking quite happy. Our travel plans changed last minute and she was very accommodating in arranging for us to pick him up at a time that was convenient for us.

Mary will be our first call when we need a dog sitter again!
I cannot say enough good things about Mary! I was nervous about leaving my dog behind for the first time but any concerns were eased. Mary welcomed my pup into her beautiful home with incredible kindness. I was relieved to know that she was always reachable and to be able to see photos of all the fun that they were having.
Mary was great! She took great care of our 8 month old maltese poodle while we were away for a weekend. She sent us frequent pictures and updates and was always available. I highly recommend her!
Mary was a great dog sitter and extremely flexible with her schedule. She kept in touch and sent plenty of photos - she even took my dog to the park! I would definitely recommend her.
Mary is great! This is the second time Puffy stayed with her and he seemed to have a great time. She kept in contact and sent me pictures. Puffy even let Mary put on his snow shoes which is a real sign of comfortableness for him. She was also very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. Mary is my go to for dogvacay!
Mary was fantastic! Our 8 year old Shiba Inu looked so happy in all the photos she sent, we were able to further relax on vacation knowing he was in great hands with Mary. She was very quick to answer any questions or texts and kept us up to date with playtime photos and down time in the apartment. We will definitely be contacting her the next time we go away. Thank you Mary!!
Mary watched Lola over Christmas Holidays. She was very flexible with drop off and pick up hours. She sent me photos of Lola every 2-3 days and kept me updated on what they were doing. She is very friendly and easygoing person.
Mary was great! She sent me pictures while I was away and was accommodating for a longer stay and for my drop-off and pick-up schedule. Would definitely use her again!
Our beagle, Chip, loved his stay with Mary (he actually probably got away with more than he gets away with at home). It was difficult to get him to leave.

Chip was having some problems with his leg and was having difficulty walking as our vacation approached. While we were hesitant to leave him with anyone, our vet assured us the issue was minor and self-healing. Mary was very understanding of this issue and took great care of Chip during his recovery, which allowed us to enjoy our long-anticipated vacation without worry. We'll definitely be reaching out to Mary again when the need arises. Chip will be thrilled!
