About Martha

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
With pets, traveling can be a hassle. Boarding is expensive and inconvenient. Asking friends and family is an option, but can become overbearing. Why not leave your dogs in a great home with good company?

My (soon to be) husband and I have dealt with the above when trying to plan our getaways, and always wished the process was easier. That's why we offer pick-up and drop-off to fit your schedule and daily email updates to keep you aware of how your pets are doing.

Our home is located in Central Lakeview, about 5 minutes walking from Wiggley Field (Dog Park) and 5 minutes driving from Belmont Harbor (Dog Beach). Because we both work during the week, we love to take our 2 pups (Vito & Bruno) to the beach or park on the weekends to get their "workouts" in. We have a gate that divides our house in case your pup requires solitude, and we both have experience caring for dogs with medical needs.

Got questions? We've got answers!

Warm hearts, friendly playmates, and comfortable places to lounge await your pup at Martha and Matias' home! Upon entering their apartment, you and your pup will be greeted by the welcoming committee (their adorable pups, Vito and Bruno), who are always ready to play and happy to socialize! Both pups are well-versed in sharing their space with other dogs, as Martha and Matias frequently invite their friends' and family's dogs over to their place for visits.

When you meet Martha, you'll know you're truly in the presence of a loving and skilled dog mom, through and through. She has a puppy-proofed pad just waiting for guest dogs to come and check out. She also knows great tricks of the trade to ensure socialization during a meet-n-greet goes over well and without any stress (on dogs or their parents!). If you're looking for a safe, well-managed environment in which to provide a bit of socialization for your dog during a Vacay, look no further than Martha and Matias' place!

Martha was awesome! She sent lots of updates and adorable pix, and even made Bernie special pumpkin treats!!!
Another wonderful experience with Martha. Sydney loves staying with Martha and playing with both of her dogs.
Martha was awesome! She set up a meet and greet and eased my nerves. Sent pictures and updates regularly and treated my pup like one of her own.
Martha was great! She even offered to pick up our little one. Oscar had Vito & Bruno for awesome company. Regular updates and pics showed he didn't want to come back home with us.
Martha took care of Wrigley while I traveled. She was so sweet and considerate. Martha sent cute pics of Wrigley, and she went out of her way to make sure Wrigley did great.
Martha is fantastic...the best host on the north side of Chicago. She was warm and welcoming and she really made my dog feel like she was at home. She sent photos and notes. Martha is such a warm person and you can tell how much she cares. My dog wanted to stay, so I know she was well cared for and loved while at Martha's.

Martha was AMAZING. I have an anxiety prone Dude and am always nervous to leave him with new people. She was great at sending updates and went out of her way to make sure Dude and I both felt comfortable. He even came back home with a new bone from Martha.
