About mara

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have done a good amount of fostering for dogs which allowed them to have a new beginning in a comfy home. Aside from that I have a dog (abby) and a cat (mila) of my own. Either myself or my husband will be home during the day. I know how hard it is to leave your fur baby, so you will be guaranteed to receive photos and updates.

Typically we wake up around 6am where we go out for a potty break. Then after we come in to eat a breakfast to start the day. Within the hour we go out for our second potty break. During the middle of the day there will be a walk accompanied by a few additional potty breaks. Dinner is served generally around 6pm followed by our nightly walk. Around 10pm will be the last potty break before bedtime.

The only restrictions is that we can only take small dogs at this time. Also, please understand that I cannot take dogs that have cat aggression since I have a kitty in house.

Let your pet's staycation begin =)

Mara and her husband were great. They made us feel comfortable starting with the meet and greet. While on vacation, Mara sent pics and updates of Buster even though I couldn't always get them immediately being on a cruise ship. Buster enjoyed his stay and I will be definitely keep her as a favorite host going forward.
Like most pet owners, we were so nervous about leaving Brooklynn with someone we didn't know. Mara really did make me feel at peace once we talked, and hearing from her throughout the week we were away made a huge difference! I received pics of our doggy and a little update each day. Brooklynn really seemed to enjoy her stay and Mara was a sweetheart. I will certainly keep her contact info for future pet-sitting needs. Thank you, Mara!
It was my doggies first sleepover with someone they've never met, so I was a bit apprehensive. Mara and L. took a good care of the dogs, sent updates and pictures throughout their stay. The dogs looked happy when I pick them up. For sure I'd use Mara again and totally recommend her.
