About Marty

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Marty. I am retired and am at home most of every day. My husband, Brian, and I have always had pets and are animal lovers. We have two dogs and two cats, and they all get along well with each other. Your fur-baby must get along with cats, be spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and current with flea treatment. Our home has a large yard which is ideal for animals. However, it is not fenced. Rest assured that your pet will be leashed to potty or for walks.
If you choose to leave your pet with us, it will be treated like our own. We will keep their same daily routine. If he/she sleeps in your bed, he will sleep in our bed as well. We will make your pet feel right at home!
If you have more than one dog in your family, please message me and I'll be able to customize your booking since I'm limiting my bookings to one dog at a time until Spring. I do require a meet 'n greet.

This was Annie's second stay with Marty and our experience was perfect! The communication was comforting and the video of Annie learning about her first snow was precious! Marty is excellent with animals as well as a total pleasure to work with.
Marty makes our travels worry free!
Marty and her husband, Brian, were very welcoming and accommodating to our dachshund who has had neck surgery and needs special supervision. We received frequent pictures and updates during his stay which was great. I know he was very well cared for and also had a blast with their dogs, Max and Maci.
I am not sure I can express how pleased we are with Marty and her taking care of our Sofie was well taken care of treated like one of the family. Sofie really loved being there and I am sure if she could talk, would let the world know she can't wait to go back and see Marty and family again.

Thank you Marty for everything.
Saying our experience with Marty was wonderful would be an understatement! I have a 4 year old golden retriever that I have never left with anyone except close family members. It was obvious she was constantly being played with and being spoiled even more than she is at home! We received many pictures and videos throughout our vacation, making us feel at ease. Marty and Brian are truly dog lovers. We picked up our girl and she seemed like she was having the best time! I will absolutely leave my girl with them again and know that she would love to stay!
Our experience exceeded our expectations! Annie was happy, spoiled and treated like their very own. I received videos and updates throughout her stay. I will never consider anyone but Marty to vacay Annie. PERFECT experience! ❤️
I was referred by a friend to make a reservation for my dog to stay with Marty for a week. It was a great recommendation. Marty sent pics and videos all week of Roxie. I could tell Roxie was happy and having a great time.
I have to admit that I had reservations, but I needed someone at the last minute. From the moment I met Marty I was at ease. A total doggie lover! She was great with our sensitive Boxer and texted me info & photos of him all week! From his special food & snack requirements to outings by her pool, naps, playing, and snoozing with Marty herself (just to make him feel at ease), I can't say enough! I will definitely contact Marty for my next dog sitting needs. I highly recommend this lady.
We were EXTREMELY happy to find such a wonderful "home" away from home where we felt comfortable leaving our dog, Allie. We will definitely be taking her back and highly recommend Marty!!! We have already told many of our friends. Thank you so much for taking such good care of Allie!!!
I'm probably the happiest person in the world to find Marty. She and her husband treated Tucker just like their pets. He even slept in their bed with them. She sent pictures and updates every day. We could see the special attention Tucker was receiving and had a great vacation without worrying about him. I can't say enough good things about our experience with Marty.
Marty is so great for what she does to help out others and watch their puppy babies!!

My fiance and myself were in visiting family from Louisville, KY. We needed a place for our 2 year old dachshund while we took an over night trip to Pittsburgh, PA.. and found Marty!

We hate leaving her in a kennel where she would sit in a cage while we were out having fun and decided to give DogVacay a try.

Marty and her husband and their pets took Schatzi in and treated her as their own! They took great care of my pup and sent me photo updates and easily messaged me through the app as well. I was very releaved knowing the environment we left our pup in. We set up a meet and greet to have our pup get a feel for the place before leaving her some where different.

I would highly recommend Marty and her loving family to care for your pets! We come in town at least 4 times a year and never know what trips we may want to take.

One thing is for sure, we know Schatzi will have a great place to stay if we need to leave town again!!!
Marty was wonderful with my dog Gunner. She made me feel very comfortable leaving him there. He didn't want to leave!
Marty was a wonderful dog sitter! Our boy Kyle had a great time playing with her other dogs. Marty sent a daily pic/video and kept me updated on how he was doing. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Marty did an excellent job with Bosco and we could tell she and her family are real dog lovers, having several dogs and cats of their own. Bosco loved the experience at their home and I would gladly use Marty for future engagements. Marty was professional in every way.
