About Mary

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love dogs! I am a work at home mother of three children ages 17, 11 and 8. We had a beautiful well behaved Golden Retriever for 13 years and now we love to babysit our friends and relatives dogs while they are out of town.

We also love our smaller pets. We have an outdoor caged rabbit, a caged parakeet in my son's bedroom, and two indoor cats that find dogs interesting, but have their own private space to spend time.

We have a large house and yard with plenty of room for your dog to stretch his/her legs. I work from a home office and love having a companion to spend time with. You can feel comfortable knowing that there is a watchful eye on your loved one. I provide walking or jogging (your choice), lots of play time and companionship.

I use GreenWorks Lawn Care and barrier program for a chemical free, mosquito and tick free safe lawn for your pets. Ask for more information when you visit.

Before hosting multiple families, I will arrange a meet and greet to ensure all dogs will be happy with each other. I want to make sure your pet feels safe in our home.

I will take the time to understand your pet and any special routines that you would like me to keep while you are away. I will provide daily photos and videos of your pet to put your mind at ease.

I also provide extra services such as pick up, drop off and bathing.

Feel free to call me any time so that we can love your pet while you are away!

Mary and her kids were great with our dog over the recent Thanksgiving vacation. She was extremely flexible with hours of drop-off and pick-up. She works from home and was around a lot to keep our dog company which is what he loves! I would highly recommend her!

Our dog had a great stay with Mary. Although usually anxious in new situations, he came home relaxed and calm. Mary did a wonderful job of communicating with us and our dog seemed to get a lot of attention from her family. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a safe place to leave their pet!

I can't say enough about how pleased I was with this vacay experience. Mary and her family took excellent care of our large dog. We were traveling in Europe and Mary made sure to keep in touch by sending us photos and texts the whole time. We felt really good knowing our dog was well-cared for, happy and not just sitting in a kennel. We would absolutely have Mary watch our dog again. It was a very good experience!

Excellent experience. Mary was very prompt with messages. Also accommodating when a scheduling conflict arose.
I was happy to get photos of my happy dog. I was not expecting this as we just dropped him off for a few hours. Nice surprise!
We will definitely book again.

Our two little dogs, Penny and Lulu, stayed with Mary and her family for the first time this past weekend. As always, I was nervous about leaving the dogs with a new person, but they loved their stay. I could see from the pictures that Mary sent that they were having fun with her and her kids. When we picked them up, they looked happy and relaxed. I couldn't ask for more. I would highly recommend Mary and hope P & L can stay with her again soon.

We were so happy we found Mary and her children to care for our pug, Rocky last week. They took him for walks on the beach, he had a lap to sit on, someone with him most of the day and was totally loved! Rocky had a great vacation week and the photos Mary sent reassured us he was doing great! We plan to have Mary care for Rocky on our next summer vacation! Thank you, Mary!

Mary and her kids provided a great experience for our two Goldens. They stayed for 6 days and came home tired and relaxed! Truly a great experience! Thanks Mary!!
Mary and her kids are awesome! My dog was nervous when I dropped her off, and Mary's son immediately stepped in to welcome her and make her feel comfortable. When I returned to pick my dog up, she acted like she was a part of Mary's family. I'm kind of worried that my dog will run away and try to get back to Mary's house!

Mary and her kids are great and they love our dog! Their house is very calm which worked great for Archie. We highly recommend Mary.
This was our first time leaving Cooper with Mary and her family. I, and Cooper could not have been happier. The pictures sent everyday, kept me informed. They treated him like family. Could not have asked for a better experience.
Mary and her family took great care of my dog Rory and provided pictures throughout the weekend. Rory was exhausted from playing with the kids, and she slept the whole next day after I picked her up. I will definitely ask Mary to watch Rory again.
Mary was AMAZING! I couldn't have had a better experience! I felt so comfortable knowing my Coco was in good hands. She sent me pics everyday! Her communication was great, she reached back right away after my first message and always replied promptly to texts etc. I will definitely be using Mary again!

I could not have asked for a better experience for my dog. I knew he was in good hands and look forward to his next stay with her. Thank you Mary!!
I was thrilled with Mary and her family for taking such wonderful care of our baby. He was happy and healthy when he came home. It was the first time I have felt comfortable leaving him with someone and I didn't worry about him at all. I also loved the pictures she sent to let me see for myself that he was doing well. I would most definitely use her again if she would have us.

Mary and her family were fantastic hosts. Our pups seemed quite content and well cared for when we picked them up.
Our pups had a great stay with Mary and her family. Knowing that our dogs would be well cared for while we attended our son's wedding out of town gave us one less detail to worry about. Mary accommodated our schedule and was very pleasant to work with. A+ service!

My dogs really did have a vacation during their stay with Mary. They were treated like princes & got more love & affection from her family than they do at home. So nice to leave them somewhere and not be worried. Very accommodating in every way. Everything was top-notch...and only 5 min from home! Great experience.
