About Mary

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Mary, I am a college student at SBCC who has grown up babysitting and pet sitting as well as retail and hospitality jobs. I have two dogs in my close family and have always had a cat. I adore animals and only want the best for them. I am currently going to school two days a week, and working part time down town Santa Barbara. My days are flexible. The longest I would ever leave a dog for class or what not would be a few hours, and I would provide them lots of toys to pass the time. Due to my living situation (an apartment with two other roommates) I am limited on hosting dogs at my house, I'm able to host smaller breeds but not larger ones, but I am very much available to come host at your home with your pets, all shapes and sizes! Please feel free to contact me for references and any additional questions you may have.
Iv have a significant amount of experience pet sitting over night and a great deal just socializing with dogs. I have worked at my local pet shop back home, volunteered at my local pet rescue center and even fostered some dogs. So if you need a dog sitter give me a call and I would be over joyed to love your pup for a few nights or even a day.

My set price is $50 a night. In a case with multiple dogs, I charge $15 extra for each dog. Two dogs: $65 a night, three dogs: $80. If you have multiple dogs, message me and I will be happy to make a custom quote for you to apply this charge, so it doesn't calculate to $50 per dog/per night. Thank you!!

Mary did a wonderful job overnight dog sitting multiple days at our house for our Vizsla and our American FoxHound. Our dogs love her !
Our dog loves Mary. She sent me a cute photo of their walk while I was at work which I appreciated .
My dogs loved Mary and so did we! I highly recommend her and would use her again in a heartbeat.
Mary was great with Ruby, my newly adopted (and nervous) Australian Shepherd. Mary was professional and helpful. She left me update texts and Ruby was a happy girl when she came home. Thank you, Mary!!
Mary treats our dog so well that I'm not sure he even knows we're not home. she is so caring, reliable, and responsive. Mary's service is everything I want in a sitter. she makes me feel like my dog is as special to her as he is to me. it's a great feeling.
Mary is very professional and a pleasure to work with. very happy with her service. my dog really took to her from when he first met her. I am definitely using her services in the future. really great experience and gave me peace of mind.
Rocky had a great day with Mary! Thanks again!
Great experience! This was our first time trying DogVacay. Mary responded quickly, and on short notice, which I appreciated. She was very flexible with scheduling, and drop-off/pick-up were so convenient. Bruce, our Boston Terrier, had a fabulous day with a companion that really loves dogs; we even received a check-in photo. Highly recommend Mary and will definitely return.
Mary was wonderful!! She sent us picture updates everyday which made us happy to know our dog was being well taken care of. It's important to us to know the person watching our dog loves him just as much as we do, and we could tell Mary did! We came home to a very clean apartment and she had changed the sheets on the bed for us so we didn't have to (which was so great since we got in late and wanted to go right to bed). It's clear that Mary takes her job seriously and we would book a DogVacay with her time and time again!
Mary has looked after our aging golden retriever several times and she has always been a real pleasure to work with. I recommend her highly and without reservation.
Mary is our regular sitter for our two dogs! She is a delight to work with and takes great care of our pups!
Mary was perfect, everything went great. I highly recommend her.
mary is awesome !
Mary did a great job, and our dogs loved her. Thank you, Mary!
Mary took excellent care of our golden retriever Remy.
She clearly loves dogs and Remy loved the attention. Mary was responsive to our inquiries, polite, reliable and trustworthy. She also took great care of the house while we were gone and we were able to enjoy our vacation worry-free.
I highly recommend her.
Mary is just a delight! Our dog loves her and we feel she does a great job!
My dog Chuck loved his time with Mary. She was flexible and easy to work with. Definitely recommend and will be working with Mary going forward.
Mary was wonderful!! She took such great care of our Shaggy!! Mary sent many photos of Shaggy and kept in touch with us. I would use her again and highly recommend her to others!
Mary was terrific with our two dogs and took beautiful care of our home! I would highly recommend her!******
Mary was awesome! She sent lots of photos, and our dog loved her. She took great care of our home and our dog, our chickens, too! Will be using her again. Thanks!
Fantastic! Mary took great care of our dog and our house. She sent photo updates and gave us complete peace knowing our dog and home were in the care of a wonderful person. She even left fresh fruit and bagels so we would have a healthy snack upon our return home- very thoughtful! We will definitely ask Mary to take care of our dog again.
