About Mary

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I offer a nice quiet home with a securely fenced yard. I have a lot of shade and keep a kiddie pool with clean water so those pups can cool off when they would like to. I always have 2 buckets outside with fresh water and keep lots of toys in the yard. My home is carpet and laminate and I have an extra bedroom with a Queen bed for those who would like to lay and look out the window.

I have 2 boys of my own, raised from pups and both are neutered and very calm in nature. They are friendly, well mannered, quiet and healthy. I have experience taking care of post-surgical dogs, giving medication and canine massage therapy. I work from home and will always make sure your pet is safe and comfortable.

After breakfast, we go on a walk where we get to sniff and smell everything. During the day, unless specific instructions are given, pets can lounge around outside and chase squirrels or lay in the sun....or they can be soak up some a/c and play and nap inside. There is lots of space in the yard where we can play Frisbee, ball....tug....or whatever it is the pups enjoy doing. I have room for crates if needed and because I want to make sure I can give everyone lots of attention, I will only take in 3 dogs at the same time. I make homemade, organic dogs treats regularly and even let them nap to FiDo TV in the afternoons. I am able to follow specific diet instructions as needed and will always take lots of pictures. If allowed, your pet will be able to go to the lake and take a swim, go to a park for a walk and a change of scenery and even get a bath. I will never let them out of my sight or off a leash in an unsecured place!

I just have a fun and loving home. I raised with German Shepherds and Chihuahuas and have had my own fur-babies since I was a teenager. I have also had pigs, horses, cows, chickens, and cats so I am no stranger to the variety of animal needs. My boys are my whole world and I will make sure yours are treated the same. It is a great home and quieter than a kennel... I can assure you your fur-baby will have a pawtastic time!

All incoming visitors MUST be spayed or neutered.

Mary was a perfect choice to host our little Micheletto! He had only been a part of our family since this past July, and we had already planned this vacation in September months earlier, so finding him a good vacay was extremely important. Mary, Josh, Jax and Gus were certainly the perfect choice....Micheletto loved playing with the big dogs and had a ball running like the wind around the backyard. How do I know this? Because Mary had asked if I would like photo/video updates, and she certainly delivered! There were a few days when I couldn't access them immediately, due to no signal in my location, but they always brought a smile to my face once I saw them! The only worry I had was that Micheletto was having so much fun that he wouldn't want to come home! Thank you for giving our pup as good a vacation as we had!!
