About Mary

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live with my rescued Westie Mix, Wesley, in our modest 1938 home in the Cal-Heights Historic District. Our house has a locked and secure front and back yard and garage.

Wes enjoys the company of all of our doggie guests, especially rescued and adopted doggies! I work mainly from home and have a fairly flexible schedule which allows us to devote lots of individual attention to each doggie guest and provide regular walkies. Wes and I have had the pleasure of providing a great deal of pet and house-sitting for various friends and family over the years, and gained additional experience in professional pet care while co-owning a local bed and breakfast for dogs and cats. We are extremely conscientious, responsible, and protective of all four-legged and winged animals -- especially dogs, native backyard bird species, and horses.

Upon request, we offer special discounted rates to pairs of two small doggie guests!, and discounts on extended stays that are one week or longer. In addition, we offer special discounts to active and retired members of the United States Armed Forces, in thanks for their service. We do not charge an additional fee to walk your doggie(s), as Wes also needs to be walked, and we enjoy the extra company.

Please Note: In the interest of the health of your pet, please observe that we do require that we schedule a meet-n-greet before accepting new bookings; a copy of your doggie(s) current vaccination records; that their anti-flea drops/meds are up to date; and that they are wearing their current i.d. tags (even if they are micro-chipped).

I looked into DogVacay when my mother, who is my regular dog sitter, was going out of town. I was a little nervous about leaving our dog Sawyer at a new place, but Mary was great and she made the whole process really easy. She sent regular email updates on how Sawyer was doing. She even managed to get my camera-shy dog to look at the camera when taking a group photo. I would definitely look to Mary and Wesley if in need for another sitter in the future.

Mary is awesome. She provides a very safe home w a nice size yard for the dogs to play ...all of the dogs she takes in are very well manored and playful. Rest assured. You're in good hands here, trust me.
Mary is the best, most loving pup sitter we have ever come across. My dog used to hate going to daycare and would drag his feet at the entrance every time. He loves Mary's place! We've had her pup sit multiple times, and she's been lovely every time!
Our little Teddy Bear (9# Yorkie/Maltese mix) has been staying with Mary and Wes on numerous occasions now for about a year. Teddy is always excited to visit and play with the doggies and Mary gives them all special attention and lots of love until you return.

She took good care of our dog while we were away
Mary is fabulous! I would highly recommend leaving your dog with her. She really cares about animals and is very attentive. Her communication while away is fantastic and the photos offer reassurance your dog is getting plenty of love.
Kazu told me he had a very enjoyable day at Mary and Wes's place. Mary is very thorough and I like that. Kazu is going this morning for another stay. You can tell this home is a good doggie place
Fabulous experience--thank you so much Mary & Wes!!
Mary was such a great host for our dog! She has tons of experience with dogs, which is really reassuring. We loved the daily email from her with details on what our dog was up to that day and a cute photo. We will definitely be back, thank you Mary!
Mary and Wes's house is truly a second home to our dog Lucy. She stays with them whenever we go on vacation and is always well taken care of. Mary is also kind enough to send us email updates and photos during her stay. We never have any worries about Lucy while we are away because we know she is in good hands. We are even booking her next stay now.

Mary was wonderful and I'm so glad that Tomos was able to stay with her and Wes. Mary was responsive to my questions and it was easy to reach her for coordination. Mary was understanding and flexible of my schedule, which really put me at ease as I had an unexpected delay to my travel plan. She was very warm and friendly to Tomos and I can tell that he enjoyed his stay. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone.

Never have to worry about my babies getting the right care.
My dogs feel right at home.
Ezrah always has a good time at Mary & Wes' house. I love that he gets to be in a home away from home. The added bonus is that he not only gets to be around someone who very much loves dogs and is always there to keep him company... But he also constantly has other friends to socialize with! The best part for me is the daily photo update with a personalized message full of my dog's activities. Very lucky to have found the perfect place for my pup. Thanks Mary for always taking such good care of my guy!

There's definitely "Something About Mary" and her faithful co-host, Wes.

You'll know what I mean when you first meet her. Mary takes her time to really get to know you and most importantly, your pooch. My dog, Fred, is very persnickety when it comes to his caregiver and his surroundings. Mary is calm, warm, loving, attentive, and a great communicator. Her home is also very dog friendly. You can just tell that Mary and Wes really love hosting.

Thank you so much for taking great care of Fred. Until next time!

We are so happy to have found Mary and Wes! For a weekend out of town, we had made reservations at a traditional boarding facility, but as the date drew closer, we were not as comfortable with that environment for our 8-year-old dog anymore. With only a few days to make alternate arrangements, we contacted Mary. She was quick to respond and was warm, professional and accommodating. The meet-and-greet was efficient and thorough and we immediately felt comfortable with both Mary and Wes. While we were away, Mary sent the most thoughtful updates and pictures. She went above and beyond in keeping us informed. We knew our dog was safe, well cared for and happy. We are so grateful and will absolutely call Mary again. Thank you Mary and Wes!

My pups had a wonderful stay with Mary & Wes. She was very professional and took the time to ask a lot of questions to make sure my dogs would be comfortable. Drop off and pick up where super easy.
Panda had a great time staying with Mary and Wes. Mary is very caring and making sure that your dog is treated with love. Her house has a little cute back and front yard that Panda loves to explore. Definitely a recommend second-home for your doggy baby.

Mary and Wes were amazing!!! I was nervous leaving my pup someone new but I felt so comfortable leaving him with Mary! The daily pictures made me so happy and Jeffery looked like he was having a great time! Definitely a return customer with Mary! Thanks again!!

Thank you Mary and Wes for taking such good care of our Oswald. We loved hearing how he was doing while we were away and enjoyed the photos of Oswald's activities (mostly sleeping/relaxing). Mary gave us good peace of mind knowing he was having a good time and in such great care, we will certainly be bringing Os back.

Our experience was great with Mary. She was very responsive to our needs. We were worried about our dog feeling confused about us being gone for a week. Mary was excellent with pampering her and helping her to feel welcome and loved. We received daily emails with pictures. We really had a great peace of mind knowing that our dog was loved and well cared for in our absence. We were happy to know that she had other dogs around her. So, I don't think she had a chance to feel lonely. We will definitely call Mary again the next time we need a sitter for our dog.

This was our first experience with Dog Vacay or anything like it and we were understandably a little nervous. Mary put all those fears at ease, she was extremely professional and organized. We got regular updates and she gave me great feedback at the end. The dogs were clearly well cared for and I will definitely use her again.

Thank you, Mary and Wes, for giving us peace of mind while we travel and know that our precious Teddy Bear is in good hands!
As always, our dog Adrian had a wonderful time with Mary and her doggy Wes. Mary is a great sitter who really cares for all the dogs in her care. We will continue to book Mary whenever we need someone to take care of Adrian. And Mary sure does a great job!

What a wonderful find! Mary is an amazing individual, and we felt perfectly at ease leaving our little guy while we journeyed out of the country. We were updated daily with our dog's activities, and given photos of him and his new pals. Communication with Mary was simply a breeze, and knowing the high level of care she would provide made our time away so enjoyable. Her home and property is secured with the dogs in-mind, and there are no worries to be had. You'll be so thrilled you've chosen Mary and Wes!

I was very hesitant to use DogVacay, as we normally have friends and family watch Petey. However, due to our circumstances, we had no choice and I'm so grateful we were able to use Mary. She was amazing with our pup and I loved seeing the daily photos and updates.

If you need someone to watch your pup, Mary is your answer! I cannot thank her enough for taking care of our guy while we were away.
Read More...
Mary made sure to keep us updates and sent us photos of the pups when she could. Our pups always seem to be happy when we leave them with her. She is also pretty flexible about drop off and pick up times which is a huge help for us when we work late or miss a flight coming home.

Mary was absolutely wonderful with our pups. She made sure to send photos daily and kept us updated the whole time we were away.
We had an out of town emergency and had to
leave within a day. Mary was able to take in our
girl and watch and love her the way we wanted.
Mary knows her from a previous stay. Knows
what she does and her reactions to situations.
Knows she will follow Mary around all over the place but doesn't mind.
After reviewing other locations this is the only one we will leave our girl. Mary is a vacation for her.

We have used Mary's services for daycare several times in the last few weeks. The dogs always come home happy and healthy, and most importantly TIRED!

Mary is flexible with drop off and pick up times, which is essential for my unpredictable work hours.

Mary is a class act! She treats the dogs like all owners would want - like they are all one of her own. She runs a tight ship, keeping all guests accounted for and in order. She sent me daily updates and pics when she could. My dog Ruby came home like from camp after having a great time!
Read More...
I can not express how happy I am with the services Mary and Wes have provided. I was looking for a pet sitter for sometime since our dogs didn't like boarding places. Mary was truly wonderful, she kept me updated daily and even sent photos of all the pups. I was never left in the dark and was always updated on how Patches and Khalessi were doing. I would recommend her to anyone looking for someone who will treat your fur baby as her own.

This was my second time using Mary and she was fabulous in helping me out of a serious bind. I had left Molly (1 yr. old aussie) with another sitter (not from DogVacay) on a Tuesday night as I was flying to Georgia Wednesday and returning Saturday evening. As soon as my plane lands in Georgia my phone starts buzzing with texts and voice mails from my sitter. Molly, my dog, had been throwing up dark vomit repeatedly for several hours, so the sitter had taken her to the vet. To make a long story short, the sitter had left multiple food items on the kitchen counter which Molly had gotten in to. So, off to the vet and a $1,500 vet bill for emergency services, IV, overnight stay, etc. Fortunately, Molly was okay. After Molly returns to the sitter's house and gets in to a cardboard box on the floor that contained chocolates, sitter and I agree we do not feel comfortable having her keep Molly longer.
I called Mary from Georgia, explained the situation, and asked her if she could watch Molly. I let her know that I can not guarantee what Molly's state of mind is, she might be distressed. Knowing all of this, Mary agrees to take Molly! Wow! The sitter dropped Molly off at Mary's, I picked up Molly Saturday evening, and a very stressful few days ended peacefully. Each time I have used Mary she's been professional and handled Molly well. Thank you, Mary, for giving Molly such a pleasant and calm experience. She and I both needed it!

As always, Coda would rate her stay with Mary and Wes as a ten star fun time!
Taco's second time here... right when we got to Wes and Mary's he ran right up to the front door because he already felt at home :) He stayed over the weekend and has been asleep since we got home last night, so I know he played his little doggy heart out. I feel very safe leaving Taco here because I know he is in a good environment and having so much fun he barely even knows im gone :( lol -- thanks so much Mary and Wes, Taco will be back :)
Read More...
Mary and Wes were awesome, really helped me out and Taco had a great time! This was Taco's first time staying here and he will be back :)
Mary and Wes were perfect hosts! Very accommodating, and I was happy to know he was in great hands. I would definitely recommend them.
Mary and Wes provide a great home away from home for Stanley. Most doggie-day-cares scare Stanley and cause him to freak out upon entry because he knows he'd going to be left there. Whenever we go to Mary's, Stanley gets excited and happy as he has a friend there (Wes) and he loves all the attention he gets from Mary.

It's such a comfort when I'm thousands of miles away from my babies to know they are being cared for by someone who loves them as much as I do. Whenever we drive up to her house they literally drag me out of the car in order to get to their "Mary".
She's fantastic. Will definitely use her again!
Perfect as always! Love the daily updates and adorable pictures!
I've lost count, but I think this was probably Teddy's 4th visit with Mary and Wes. We always rest assured during our travel knowing that Teddy is in such good hands. We always appreciate the photos emailed to us of Teddy with the other doggie guests while we're away. Teddy enjoyed his stay! Thanks, Mary and Wes!
Read More...
My dogs love their stay with Mary and Wes!
Another great stay with Mary and Wes! I have peace of mind knowing Ginger is in great care!
Thank God for Mary and Wes! Our Bella has stayed with Mary and Wes on multiple occasions by now, but this visit was, by far, the longest. While my husband and I enjoyed a two week Eastern European vacation, Mary kept our minds at ease with her communications and pictures regarding Bella's stay. We knew Bella was in good hands, for sure! We also know that Bella can be a little challenging on occasion, but Mary's knowledge and professionalism from years of working with dogs helps to keep her in check and help to improve her doggie etiquette. The time and attention is very, VERY much appreciated. Thanks, Mary!!!

Mary took our sweet Fiona for daycare and made her feel right at home. I could tell she really loved and cared for her "visitors" because Fiona quickly adapted to her and went to rub on her legs! Fiona is shy and doesn't warm quickly to strangers, but she liked Mary right off. She and Wes checked each other out and then did their own thing. Fiona was calm and happy when we picked her up....no frantic barking and squealing like she was soooo happy we came to get her. She seemed perfectly content with Mary and her other doggie charges. We are out-of-towners but will definitely call on Mary again when we're in Long Beach.
Read More...
Mary has taken care of my sweet girls on several occasions over the years! Mary is wonderful! And my two sweet pups love staying with her!
Lucy gives her last stay a 5 Pawsome rating!
We always make sure Mary has a spot open for Lucy at Wes's House before we plan our vacations. She's stayed with Mary and Wes many times now. It is her second home, she's comfortable there and she has her designated favourite spots. Mary takes great care of her and keeps us updated during her stay. We are very happy to have found her and Wes through DogVacay and would happily recommend them to others.

My furry babies were very well taken care of.
Our Teddy loves staying with Mary and Wes and playing with the other guests there as well. Mary is reliable and communicates any questions she may have to make your dog as comfortable as possible. Teddy is looking forward to his next stay with Mary.
Thanks again Mary & Wes for a great stay.
Mary was wonderful with Lucy!! Lucy is a Great Dane puppy... a toddler in a 80lb body. Mary did great with her and provided plenty of updates. This was the first time we left Lucy with someone else, and out of our home, and Mary made us feel very comfortable throughout her stay. Very kind and thoughtful and it's clear that she has lots of experience. I would definitely recommend her!

Oh, and Wes is the cutest! :) :)

This was my first time using DogVacay and I was happy that I found Mary! She helped us out over the Labor Day weekend by watching Molly as we were out of town. Mary was fantastic to work with and it gave us one less thing to worry about knowing that Molly was being well taken care of. She kept us updated on Molly's stay and was very professional throughout the entire process. Thanks, Mary!

This was my first time using Dog Vacay. Mary and Wes have wonderful reviews and I could tell after our meet and greet she truly cares for all her guests and really knows her stuff. My dog is an older guy with a few special needs. Since he can not see particularly well I am always nervous about bringing him to a new environment. Mary and Wes were wonderful. I enjoyed the updates with photos we received during our trip. It really put my mind at ease knowing he was in such good hands.
Read More...
Mary is the best! She is very flexible with drop off and pickup times. Jake comes home worn out and content. It is so nice not to have to worry about my dog while I am out of town.
Mary and Wes created a great over-night for our young Wheaten Terrier with relatively short notice, for which we are grateful. Mary always has nice doggy playmates for our pup so when we return to pick her up, she's happy, relaxed and worn out from a good time. Mary gives lots of love and care to her guests and we know our dog is well protected in her care. Over multiple visits, Mary and Wes have been very consistently reliable. We trust her and will return, of course. As a testament from our puppy, as soon as she sees Mary's house she jumps up, and when she sees Mary her tail goes a mile a minute. So a 5-star rating rating from the 4-legged guest!

This was the first time we left our Sidney with anyone. She just turned one. It was really hard but leaving her in Mary's care eased our concerns.

We love all the pictures and email updates. Sidney enjoyed her stay.

We will be back when we plan another vacation.

We would highly recommend Mary as her guests truly are taken care of with love.

As always both my Border Collie and Schipperke loved their time with Mary and her dog, Wes! Mary is a dog whisperer! Great place to leave your dog kids!
Once again, our puppy has had a great day with Mary and Wes. It is so wonderful to know we can rely on them for love, care, a safe environment, entertainment, fine dining and nice playmates. Mary runs a tight ship while also providing top-drawer intellectual stimulation through play, conversation and general spoiling. We'll be back, of course!
Read More...
Mary treats your fur baby as her own. Teddy always has a great time staying with Mary and interacting with all of the guests there.
This was Bella's second stay with Mary & Wesley and we are happy to say that this will be her "home away from home" each time we travel. Mary is very thorough and has great attention to detail, as well as great compassion and understanding how dogs "tick". We feel very confident leaving Bella in her very capable hands. :-)

Another great stay with Mary & Wes!☺
The best, my dog's home away from home.
I travel quite a bit with my daughter and son-in-law and always have a great time. One of the reasons is because I know Mary is taking good care of my Gizmo. He is 16 years old, with only 1 eye and has a very hard time hearing. The pictures I receive shows that he is very happy. Thanks again Mary - till next time!
Read More...
Our dog Lucy has stayed so many times with Mary and Wes that is it literally her second home. We would think of nowhere else to leave her when we go on vacation. She is well cared for and enjoys her time with Mary, Wes and their other doggie guests. Mary keeps in constant contact through emails and group photos (she's a pro at them now!), which is very reassuring when we are so far away. We highly recommend Mary and Wes to other doggies and their parents.
Read More...
I have peace of mind every time our Ginger stays with Mary and Wes. She is happy to be dropped off and is well taken care of during her visit. Thank you Mary and Wes!!!
Gizmo always has a good time at Mary's home. He is 15 years old with only one eye and can't hear. Mary takes excellent care of Gizmo. She always gives that extra loving care.
Mary and Wes are wonderful hosts and my two dogs really like staying with them. Maggie Moo (a border collie) and Rosie (a Schipperke) are well cared for and entertained while at Mary's house. Great experience for all!
As usual, Mary and Wesley were superb hosts to our puppy. Our little pup says Mary & Wesley have the BEST little dog park in town with good playmates, lovely places to play, cushy furniture, good supervision and lots of love and attention. Mary is a pleasure to do business with: responsive, responsible and really helpful and accommodating. We'll be back, of course!

Mary and doggie host, Wes, make our dog happy and comfortable. We are confident that Coda is cared for and loved, which is why we always choose this marvelous host "team."
Our first stay with Mary was awesome! My little pups were EXHAUSTED by the time they got home from 4 days of playing non-stop. Loved getting the daily email pictures, and knowing that my little boys were being well taken care of. Thank you Mary and Wes!

This was Teddy's first time away from his family and we were very nervous and anxious about leaving our precious little Teddy Bear. Talking with Mary on the phone and doing a meet-n-greet with she and Wes put our minds at complete ease. Teddy was not only well cared for, but he was happy and exhausted from playing with Wes and the other guests during his stay. Until next time, thank you Mary and Wes for sharing your hideaway with our Teddy Bear!

Mary was very sweet and she seemed to really enjoy caring for Riley. She called to let us know how he was doing and sent pictures of him.
Thank you Mary and Wes for hosting Pepper. We had to change our drop off and pick up times at the last minute and Mary was very accommodating. Thanks again!
I was able to relax while out of town knowing that my dog Joleene was in safe and caring hands. Thank you all for making this possible.
Mary is wonderful with my dogs. They love their time with her and Wes
Mary & Wes were excellent caregivers to our puppy. We trusted Mary from the beginning because of her good business practices. She was quick and cooperative, carefully checked our dog's health record and made sure she would be compatible with other pets staying with her. She kept in touch with us throughout the visit, sending pictures and updates. Our puppy had a great tiplaying with her new friends. We will definitely have future stays with Wes & May. Very caring, loving & trustworthy. r ome

The only hitch for us to enjoy our early retirement and desire to travel was to find a great sitter for our beloved dog, Bella. Worries are gone!! Mary and Wes provided a loving safe haven, home away from home for our Bella. I read all the positive reviews that Mary and Wes have, but one never knows if their dog will fit the scene. This was Bella's first experience away from us, and our initial meet and greet set our minds at ease. Mary is professional, thorough and very much a "dog person". You can feel the love in her house. Bella made several new friends and came home exhausted from all the fun and games. We will not hesitate to book again. The daily updates and photos are enough to melt your heart. From the bottom of ours, THANK YOU MARY!

Jake and Bella had a PAWSOME time with Mary and Wes! My flight was delayed which postponed my pick up time by 1.5 hours. I wasn’t able to pick them up until after midnight! While Mary and I were in constant communication, Mary was very understanding and gracious throughout the whole process. I appreciate how Mary keeps them clean (usually I have to give them a bath when they return with other hosts), how she follows my care instructions to a tee and how gracious she was when things came up.

Mary and Wes, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for going above and beyond! Jake, Bella and I will definitely see you soon!

Mary and Wes, her four legged companion, were nothing short of exceptional. From the moment we dropped Buddy off we new we were in expert and caring hands. Mary went above and beyond our expectations. Buddy was walked and well taken care of. He made a new friend with Wes and came home to us tired from all of the fun he had.

Mary emailed us daily and even checked in with us right after we left Buddy, to let us know he was adapting nicely to his new environment. Mary will be our goto sitter when we take our next vacation without our Buddy.

This was Adrian's longest stay with Mary and Wes so far. Of course, Adrian had loads of fun. Although we were unable to be contacted for several days due to being at sea, we still had various emails with updates and photos waiting for us from Mary. Mary is always such a pleasure and our Adrian adores her and Wesley. The second we brought Adrian back home, she was completely worn out for about two days from all the nonstop fun she had during her two weeks with Mary and Wesley.

More fun times for Adrian with Wes and the others!
Adrian had a great time as always even for one night. :)
Ellie had another great stay with Mary and Wes. Ellie was well taken care of and had a great time once again. Thanks Mary and Wes!
words cannot describe how grateful i am for having met mary and wes. she is a delight. i always feel comfortable in her care and she is always so patience with us.
Mary and Wes are wonderful hosts and a great fit for our basset, Ginger. Mary provides thoughtful daily updates to ease any anxiety when leaving your baby behind on vacation. We will definitely be using their services again!
Ginger's first time with Mary and Wes and all the reviews have said it before. Mary is very organized and efficient but also very caring and responsive to her guests and their parents. I left town feeling very sure Ginger was safe and well cared for and Mary is only a few blocks from my home!!
Ginger plans on coming back to see her 'buds' and has promised she will behave better this time around. Thanks, Mary, for letting her not leave your side for 3 days, lol.

Lucy stayed with Mary and Wes over the Thanksgiving holiday and as always she had a great time! I think she considers it her second home and we are very lucky to have found them through DogVacay. Mary sent email updates and photos during her stay and I never had to worry about Lucy. I knew she was in good hands and enjoying the company of the other doggies. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mary and Wes to other doggie parents.

Monaco loves Mary and Wes!
We feel so comfortable leaving our "child" with Mary. Very safe home and yard and we appreciate her keeping us in touch with pictures. She provides the lap Mitzi requires!!
Mary and Wes are the best! To begin with, Mary makes sure that everything is in order before she committing to taking good care of your pup. She invited my dog Newton and I over, whereupon we made sure our dogs got along. She gave us a tour of her house, and asked specific questions to make sure that she could provide the best care for Newton; she makes sure everything is in order (vaccinations, flea/tick control, etc.) for the benefit of all the dogs she is sitting. Newton was on a load of medication during his multiple stays at Mary and Wes', but he was well taken care of. Mary also sent group photos of the dogs she was sitting, so it was great to get that while I was on my trip. Definitely would not hesitate to book her again (as a matter of fact, already have!), and look forward to seeing both her and Wes for many more dog sits to come! Thank you both!

Mary and Wes are the best! We experienced a loss in our family and Mary was able to accommodate Lucy despite her already busy schedule. We really appreciated that we could leave Lucy in her great care during this time. We didn't have to worry about Lucy at all and she had fun with the other doggie guests. We've already booked Lucy's next visit with Mary and Wes and I happily recommend them to all doggie parents I know and meet.

Mary did a great job with our dogs. She sent pics everyday and little updates, too. She made us feel as though they were in great hands!
Mary is professional, dependable, easy-to-plan-with, and pleasant. Our dog always comes back from her house happy and calm. Drop off and pick up have been easy and we love getting pictures and updates while we're away.
My family had a week long trip out of town and Mary and Wes were the perfect hosts for Cash and Fray. I was never nervous about leaving them with her. She sent me daily updates and pictures about how they were doing. She is so organized and takes such good care of them. They honestly seemed a little depressed when they had to leave her house!! We will continue to use Mary and Wes for our overnight needs. Thanks!!

Mary was very nice with us and she made some last minute accommodations to take care of Buzz. she kept in touch with us , she sent pictures during Buzz's stay. we hope see Mary again very soon Emma,Olivier and Buzz
Cappy came home his usual happy self, which isn't always the case when I board him. Cappy will be visiting his new buddy Wes again! We loved the daily picture of Cappy with all his dog buddies.
Mary and Wes are great doggy sitters. I went down first to meet Mary and Wes. Mary wanted Wes to meet Spencer and see how they got along. Spencer got along great with Wes. Mary really loves doggies and she has a very beautiful home where the dogs have many rooms to play in and they have many accesses to the outside.

Mary sends me E Mails and photos while Spencer was there and it was great to see him while I was away.

I have stayed twice with Mary and Wes and I trust Mary with my precious Spencer and he really liked it there. I live in Redondo Beach but the drive to Long Beach is worth it to stay with Mary and Wes.

I am so grateful that I found Mary on Doggy Vacay!!

We always leave our special pup with Mary. She is accommodating and a real animal lover. Coda gets excited when we are three blocks away! She enjoys the company of Wesley, the resident dog, as well as any dogs Mary has with her that visit. She behaves far better for Mary than for us! We love the photos, the enclosed yard, and Mary's "dogs have the run of the house" policy, Highly recommended.

Mary & Wes are the best! We always make sure there's a spot available for Lucy before we plan our trips. That way we know she will be well taken care of while we are away. Mary is thoughtful, considerate and really cares for her doggie guests. She even emails us with updates and photos of Lucy with her new buddies. We feel like she's on her own vacation. If you are looking for a place to leave your precious doggie without worries for a night or while you're on holiday, Mary and Wes's place is the way to go.

Mary was great and made some last minute accomodations to take Emerson, our King Charles. It was great receiving pictures of our dog with the "gang" by mid-day which re-assured us all was going well. Thanks Mary!
We are extremely happy with the care Mary gave to our precious Adrian. She was constantly in contact with us letting us know how Adrian was doing. Adrian came back happy as can be. We would definitely use Mary again in the future. She knows what she's doing! We were worried how Adrian would be her first time away from home and us for several days, but it looks like there were no problems and Adrian blended perfectly with Mary and Wes. Thank you again, Mary and Wes!

Mary came highly recommended by a friend. She was able to accommodate taking care of our puppy with very short notice. She kept in touch with us during our puppy's stay and took good care of Ellie. We'll definitely have Mary take care of Ellie again!

We boarded our dog, Precious, with Mary and Wes this past week. Precious' brother just passed away, and we were fortunate to be able to book with Mary and Wes. As always, Mary and Wes took great care of our dog. We received multiple updates and pictures to let us know how Precious was doing. Of the sitters we know, we especially felt that Mary and Wes were most suited for us to entrust our fur-kid to because of her past (great) experiences with them, especially in light of the unexpected death of her brother. Mary cares about the pets she sits, and it shows! :) Wes is also a great companion!

mary and wes are so caring... even if they are busy and overbooked, they make time for maddie and we appreciate that!
Mary and Wes were wonderful as always. Never have to be concerned when Jake is there and he gets excited when we arrive.
The dogs had a blast with Mary and Wes! Very happy with the experience. Good lady!
My Border Collie, Maggie Moo, age 9 and my Schipperke, Rosie, age 14 months, had a "blast" with Mary and Wes. They came back happy and healthy! Will definitely reserve time with Mary again!
Mary and Wes are great doggy sitters for short or long periods of time. I feel completely confident Maddie will be in good hands. I am forever grateful to Mary and Wes.
This was Jake's second stay with Mary and Wes. I never once wondered if he was okay. Both times he has come home happy, content and tired. And Mary sends the best pictures to let you know how the stay is going. We will definitely be back!
Maggie's fourth visit was the longest and just as successful as the rest. We loved knowing Maggie was happy and safe in good hands.
Maggie had a great third visit with Mary and Wes. We loved receiving pictures of Maggie and her friends.
Maggie was excited for her second visit with Mary and Wes and everything went well again!
Maggie had a wonderful time staying with Mary and Wes. She made lots of friends and came home happily exhausted. Mary was very conscientious and we knew Maggie was in good hands.
Mary made the entire doggie vacay experience easy and took great care of our two dogs. Her home is very dog-friendly with an ample backyard for our two terrier/Italian greyhounds to run about.

Mary clearly knows a lot about dogs and it's obvious that she really cared about our little guys comfort and safety. We'd definitely recommend Mary to anyone who needs a safe and loving home for their four-legged friends.

We found Mary and Wes through a friend and we are so happy we did. Our dog had a great time and was very well cared for. There was no issue at all regarding the administration of his meds. How was walked and made so e new friends. It is clear that Mary's concern is with the dogs' well-being.
We will definitely see Mary and Wes again soon.

We love Mary, and Abby loves her too. This was the third time Abby has stayed with Mary. we are now able able to take a vacation, and feel so happy and comfortable, knowing that she is with Mary.
When Abby is there, she is part of this big fun family, and Abby just loves it.
When we come to pick her up, I can see that she is not too happy to leave! How great that is.

Also, very important. All yards etc are gated.

I highly recommend Mary to everyone. Finding Mary has changed our life ........We can now get away without worry about our"baby
She also sends great pictures of the dogs, and you can see that they are having a great time.

Mary is obviously very caring about pets and very knowledgeable about doggie interaction. My pups came home happy and tired - a good sign! I will be using Mary's services again soon. I have already sent her link to other neighbors!
Mary is the most accommodating dogsitter I've ever hired. She really cares about the dogs and how they get along, is really in tune to their needs and quirks, and keeps in touch wonderfully with photos and emails. She is so easy to work with and flexible with plans, and works from home so the dogs aren't just left there. My dog was instantly at home in her house. I couldn't ask for a more helpful and flexible host for my dog!

I am so grateful to have met Mary and Wesley! This was Waffles's first stay with Mary and everything went extremely smoothly. Mary is so kind and caring, and I really felt like I was leaving Waffles with someone in the family. I received regular updates (with photos!) on how he was doing and I could tell that he was happy and comfortable staying with Mary. I would absolutely recommend Mary to anyone needing someone to look after their dogs and would without a doubt bring Waffles back.

Lucy always enjoys her visits to Mary and Wes's house. She is well taken care of and gets to spend time with the other doggie guests. That's five stars from us and four enthusiastic paws up from Lucy!
There is nothing like knowing that your little loved one is well taken care of by someone who loves her as much as you do. That's how I feel with Mary. There is none better!!!
This is Coda's third stay with Mary and her companion dog, Wesley. We especially love the photos Mary emails frequently and can see that Coda is happy and pampered. She comes home in good health and with the attitude that she has been on a restful vacation from her family. Mary also has a treat for US in with Coda's gear! We continue to be grateful to Mary and Dogvacay - we can leave Coda and know that she is cared for. This isn't "boarding" your dog - it is giving her new friends and a host who loves her.

I can't ever imagine leaving my dog with anyone else than Mary. This is my dog's home away from home.
mary and wes are always soooo accommodating, flexible, and very sweet! i am so grateful to dogvacay for introducing us to them.
always pawesome!
We love Mary! She is amazing with dogs and people :).
This is our second time having Mary and Wes take care of our Beagle Sammy. Sammy had a blast and so did we knowing she was in good hands and having fun with her pals. Thank you Mary and Wes! See you next time!
Mary and Wes are amazing. From the moment you meet her, you know she is an animal lover. My dog came home happy and content. Will definitely be back.
This was Lucy's second stay with Mary and Wes and we are again grateful to them for opening up their home and taking such great care of our little Lucy. She stayed for 9 nights this time and, despite some email issues on our part, Mary thoughtfully continued to send us updates and photos. This gave us the peace of mind we needed to enjoy our own vacation.

I would not hesitate to recommend Mary and Wes for a worry free vacay for your doggie.

Mary is the best! My dog is 8+ and is a little on the shy side, but when he met Mary he gave here his moose call only reserved for people he has known for years! As we walked around her very pet friendly home with her dog Wes, it was like Red had been there his whole life! I'm not an over protective pet owner but Mary sent me regular updates during my trip and it was great. I can't say enough good things about our experience with Mary and Wes! I would recommend Mary to everyone.

Mary is wonderful. I would use her again. Wonderful with pets.
Mary and Wes are awesome. Monaco loves them and so do we!
Mary is so reliable. She is so thoughtful of us and it is greatly appreciated! She sure is a fine human being!
couldnt be more happy with mary and wes!!!
My Dog's home away from home. What a wonderful and comforting feeling knowing that my "baby" is safe and happy!
Mary is great! I trust her completely with my dog Petey and I love that there are other dogs there to keep him company.
My dogs home away from home. She loves it at Mary's and literally jumps out of the car to run to Mary. That says it all.
We're so happy to have found you Mary. Thank you for watching Mendy and giving us an update while we were gone. Loved the photo you sent of Mendy and her new friends. See you soon. Terry and Paul.
Maggie and Fiona were well cared for in their first experience with Mary and Wes. She welcomed them into her home and made them feel like a part of the family. We will certainly be reserving time with her again.
We will be bringing our Coda back to Mary and Wes whenever we travel. Coda enjoys the company, the cuddling and the pampering! We know that she will be cared for with love.
i always feel confident leaving maddie with mary. mary is so sweet and thoughtful. she always gives us dogvacay swag that we can use. she is such a giving caring person. i feel lucky to have found her!
Mary and Wes were so great to our pups! I received pictures and updates while they stayed there. Not only is the property perfect for dogs (ample and secure outdoor space), she is a fantastic dog sitter. Cash and Fray look forward to spending more time with both of them. I highly recommend Mary. She is no rookie at taking care of dogs. They were treated as well as they are at home and that's what I hope for whenever they need to stay with a sitter.

Mary made our very sensitive Irish Setter feel at home right away. We were impressed by her professionalism and wouldn't hesitate to use her again. Wes was a delight as well.
We were very happy, and pleased with the care our dog, Abby, received during the 12 days she stayed with Mary Sullivan. We received frequent pictures, in which Abby looked so happy and content
In one picture, since it was Christmas time, Mary had all the dogs sitting with Santa hats on.'I don't know how she did it, but we loved it. She has fenced yards so the dogs are very safe and the dogs are always welcome in the warm and welcoming home.
Mary loves dogs, and the dogs love her.

Sammy had a wonderful time with Wes and Mary. We loved the photo updates and everything went as well as could be expected. We had a last minute booking and Mary was great in accommodating us!
Mary and her dog Wes were very welcoming to our dog Brandy. The meet and greet went well as the vacation Brandy was able to spend at Mary's humble abode. Mary has a great disposition and seems to handle this time well with dogs. We were thankful Mary could accommodate the time we arrived, as the time we returned for Brandy.
Thanks Mary, keep up the good work, and look forward to the next vacation we take, as well as Brandy's time away.

As before, we really like Mary's care of our little girl. And our little girl settles in very easily at Mary's home. She keeps us posted on how things are going, new friends, pictures, etc. We feel sooo comfortable leaving her there!
You can't go wrong with Mary and Wes. My dog, Lua considers it to be her second home. She eagerly jumps out of the car when we pull up to Mary's house. When we go out of town I am completely content knowing that my "baby" is being taken care of. Plus Mary sends great pictures and sends emails to give me a "Lua fix" while I'm away.

I always feel completely confident leaving my dog Maddie in Mary's hand. She is so caring and loving to all the dogs she watches. I hope she's able to watch Maddie whenever possible. Big thank you to Mary!
Mary and Wes were the perfect hosts to Maggie during her lengthy stay of two weeks! Mary kept me feeling confident that everything was going okay and I'm pretty sure Maggie was kept very entertained as she slept for what seemed like a couple days when she returned! Thank you Mary for everything (even the sweet wedding gift) and I look forward to seeing you again.

We found Mary to be the perfect person to leave our "child" with. Her home and yard are very secure and she obviously loves dogs. She took the time to call and give us an update on her acclimation (sitting on her lap) to new surroundings and new friends. Oh yes, even sleeping on her bed which she does at home. We wouldn't want to leave her with anyone else!

Super cool experience .Mary gets it.She cares and shows it.. So grateful to have a place Katie can stay when needed. Katie will be back... Thank U
This was our first time boarding our dogs i.e our kids. I did a lot of searching and reading comments before I came upon Mary and Wes. She had approx. 46 excellent reviews. After reading reviews and looking at the pictures of her home which seemed so dog friendly I decided to go with Mary and Wes. We have no regrets. The dogs became comfortable very quickly when we went to the meet and greet. Which made my husband and I very comfortable. We feel much more free to travel now that we know we have a place to leave our dogs that we can trust to take good care of them.

This is our second time staying with Mary. We can't say enough about how much Mary not only cared for our dog, but LOVED our dog Indy! We had a relaxed carefree getaway with no worries. Indy was happy playing with friends, walking, and resting. Mary is awesome! Thank you Mary and Wes!

Bodhi loves going to visit Wes and Mary is great about sending updates about how he's doing, usually with pictures too! It's so nice to have such a great place for our dog.
This was our first time using DogVacay and was a very good experience. Mary and Wes are the best! During our meet-n-greet, Clyde seemed very comfortable around Mary and Wes, so we had no hesitation to leave him with them. Mary was awesome in sending daily pictures of our Clyde with Wes and other dogs that were there while we were away. If we ever need someone to take care of Clyde while we are gone, we know exactly where to go!

Frankie had a blast during his recent stay with Mary & Wes! Going on vacation and leaving Frankie behind is so easy because we know he's going to have so much fun playing with Wes and the other guests. We enjoyed all the updates and pictures we received during his stay. Mary was very thorough in making sure that Frankie would be comfortable during his stay. She went above and beyond our expectations and we're so happy to have found her and can't wait to bring Frankie back for his next visit.

We were delighted by Mary S. and her sweetheart pet companion, Wesley. This was our first experience with Dog Vacay and we feel that we found a wonderful home away from home for our pup. Coda was better behaved with Mary than she ever is with us - probably Wes' influence! When we got home, we found some doggie goodies, a leash roll of poop bags and a cute bandana as little gifts. Our dog, who can be a bit nervous, was calm and happy. We will surely let her visit Wesley whenever we travel.

When we turn the corner in front of Mary's house, Monaco gets very excited. A sure sign that we've found our Southern California dog sitter extraordinare!
Mary and Wes got along very well with Apollo. They both seemed to care a lot about his well being and enjoyed his personality. I got a daily update, which was reassuring throughout my vacation.
This whole process was as smooth as one could expect. Got a prompt response from Mary who was extremely professional and courteous. The meeting went smoothly, Bailey loved running around and exploring as Mary's place is very dog friendly with plenty of shaded outdoor areas and comfy cool areas to lounge about inside. During Bailey's stay we got a couple of photos of her having a great time with Wes. Mary was a lovely host and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone that loves their dog!

Monaco LOVES Mary and Wes. Mary sent pictures and updates throughout Monaco's visit. We've found our awesome dog sitter and now can travel without worry!
I feel completely comfortable with leaving my doggie with Mary. My dog always has fun with hers and their other doggie friends. She is very thoughtful in that she send me photos of my dog while staying with her. She's also very generous with parting gifts. I completely trust Mary and would recommend her to anyone. I will continue to book with Mary and Wes.

Always professional, caring, thoughtful, and trustworthy.
Thank you Mary for taking Pepper for a play-day. We don't like to leave him alone because it causes him anxiety so its nice to have a fun place to take him. That way we can get in some fun time and everyone is happy!
Mary and Wes took great care of our dog Bodhi this weekend. She send daily updates including pictures which made us feel a lot better about leaving him. I'm so much happier knowing he's running around playing with another dog instead of stuck in a kennel all day. Thanks Mary and Wes!

Our dog Lucy stayed with Mary and Wes for 11 days while we were on vacation. Mary went above and beyond what we expected from a dog sitter. Not only did she take great care of Lucy, but she also sent email updates and photos that gave us the reassurance we needed to enjoy our own vacation. Lucy loved her time with Mary, Wes and their other doggie guests. I would definitely like to have Lucy stay with them again and would recommend to others.

Thank you Mary for having Pepper over for a Saturday sleep-over! We know he had lots of fun because he came home and slept all day. Overall an excellent experience!
We had a great experience with Mary! Her and her dog are both very sweet, and she was so great with our dog. She was also so kind as to send us daily emails with updates/photos, which made us feel really comfortable with leaving him with a stranger. This was our first time using dogvacay, and we really lucked out. Looking forward to the next time already!

I feel comfortable leaving my dog with Mary. Every time we have to go away, I feel at ease knowing that Mary will take excellent care of my dog. She emails me updates and send pics to reassure me that my Johnny is doing well. She is very flexible with pick up and drop off times. Sometimes things come up and I have to extend the stay and she is quite accommodating. I'm so glad I found her; it's great to know that Johnny has a place to go where he can have fun and we can relax knowing that he is well taken care of. Thanks again Mary!

Once again, Mary and Wes took great care of my two little ones. SO glad to have them in our extended doggie family!
I liked that Mary is very flexible and that she was able to accommadate my changing schedule.
We had a good expericence with Mary. She's very caring and loving to my dog.
Late posting, but my dog had a great stay with Mary back at the end of may. He had a wonderful time and I am always very comfortable leaving him in her care.
Once again, Guinness had a great time at Mary's. As always, she's communicates well with customers. Drop he a line and she is very willing to reschedule pickup or dropoff as needed.
Again, Mary & Wes were amazing hosts to our precious beagle (Totoro). We left Totoro with her for 8 days and I don't think Totoro was ready to come home. He was having so much fun with Wes and the other furry companions that Mary was taking care of. Mary is also very professional and helpful; she was flexible enough to allow us to pick up Totoro late at night, which was very much appreciated. Thank you again,Mary & Wes! I'm sure Totoro is already looking forward to his next visit with you.

We're regulars with Mary (and Wes). Billy Bob loves it there and I know he is sfae and well cared for.
Mary is simply the best! She understands doggie psychology which was very comforting to us. This was Milo's first overnight stay and he stayed with Mary for 6 nights. Milo's demeanor changed from a rather timid dog that did not hesitate to bark at other dogs to a playful, social dog. Wonderful! She treated Milo like one of her own. She also gave Milo a nice treat bag as a going away gift. Mary is a very nice person and I would not hesitate to use her again. Rest assured, your dog would be safe in her hands.

Mary was great. She really made Billy Bob feel like a member of her family and took special care to watch out for his special needs.

Mary provides a fabulous "home away from home" for our puppy!
Mary and Wes make every dog feel welcome. She values your fur baby asif they were her own. She is highly recommend and will be sought after again!
As always, Mary was a great host. Considerate, friendly, professional. Who could ask for more?
Mary & Wes welcomed my pup with open arms. Wes played with my 6 month terrier mix until she passed out in happy bliss. Mary was patient with my pup and as well as her neurotic mommy (me). lol She sent updates & pictures to keep me in constant loop with my little one. I not only recommend Mary, but I will definitely be using her again. :o)

We had such a wonderful experience with Mary! Both she and Wes took great care of Precious, and made her feel right at home. We were so happy to get an update on how Precious was doing...Mary's care and love for dogs really shows, and it made us feel such at ease that a member of our family was in good hands! Mary sent us several pictures. She even went the extra mile to get her camera fixed when it turned out the pics weren't coming through. I really appreciated her thoughtfulness. Precious was even lucky to get some goodies - thank you so much, Mary! We just brought Precious home and she is zonked out - which is a great sign :) We're so happy to have found Mary and Wes, and would recommend them in a heartbeat!

We go out of town so much that Lua, our energetic mixed terrier, thinks that Mary and Wes are her family. She jumps out of the car and runs to the door. This is sign that she loves being there and this gives me a great deal of comfort. You can't go wrong with Mary and Wes.

Mary watched my dog Argo for a whole week. Argo is a geriatric, extra-large breed, special needs dog. He requires a higher level of care and compassion than most dogs. Mary was very sweet to watch him.

Mary treated him with empathy, kindness, and love. She attended to his special needs, gave me frequent updates, and followed all of Argo's care instructions. Her home is dog friendly, safe, and secure.

Mary did more than I expected her to do, going beyond what most pet sitters offer. She made sure that Argo stayed cool during a heat wave and even slept on her couch so that Argo would not be lonely at night.

I am positive that Argo was a difficult case, but Mary never had anything unkind to day about him. She is very professional and has a good sense of humor.

Mary is nice, trustworthy, honest, experieced, and kind. I recommend Mary to anyone looking for a dog sitter. We had a good dog sitting experience with her.

Mary and Wes are simply the best host ever. i can't imagine leaving Lua with anyone else. She really really treats my dog like it is hers. A very very special person indeed.
I am very pleased with our experience with Mary. My dog was very hyper when we initially met Mary, and she was hesitant to board my dog. Rightly so! But she was patient with dog, giving her time to calm down and show Mary the sweet dog that she is. She was very accommodating and flexible with the drop off/pick up times, and sent pictures of my dog during her stay. My only complaint was that we had to bring my dog's own crate to Mary's house since she didn't have one big enough for her to sleep in. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mary to anyone.

Mary took great care of our dog. Her pictures and emails while I was away in Ireland were great and very much appreciated. We were looking for a new dog sitter for our standard poodle and we've found her!
Marty and Lili love spending time with Mary and Wes, and we are happy to have found someone in our neighborhood who love our dogs as we do!
Simply stated, she is the best!
Mary is wonderful. Like the American Express commercial, says "never leave home without it.", I never leave town unless Mary can watch my dog, Lua. Lua thinks of it as her second home and that is comforting for me.
Mary and Wes were amazing hosts! My two little dachshunds loved their stay, and have since visited several times. Very caring and comfortable home away from home. I look forward to future visits to their happy home!
Mary and Wes (her doggie partner in dog sitting) are truly amazing! Mary loves dogs and it shows. She wanted to know all about our 3-month old puppy's habits & needs and really impressed us with her professionalism and caring. Wes was a super role model for our puppy and they played very well together. We were so comfortable with Mary, that we didn't worry at all while we were away. Great to know that we have a loving "home away from home" for our puppy the next time we need to be out of town.

Mary couldn't have been better. Not only did our dog get to spend time with a loving host, but also her furry companion. Our dog Totoro didn't even seem to miss us, which is very relieving when one is gone for a while. In fact, I think he still misses her backyard. It was wonderful to be outside of the country and to hear from her via email and to even see pics of Totoro. We loved everything about this experience because we didn't have to worry one bit about our dog. If you are looking for a safe and happy place for your dog, this is the right choice.

We had a great experience with Mary. It was our first time leaving my puppy with someone beside a member, but Mary made me feel very comfortable. She is such a caring and loving person. I felt at peace when I was away and didn't worry about anything. Thanks again Mary!

Mary is very flexible with scheduling and works with you to make pick up and drop off a breeze. She's great with the dogs and Guinness always a has a great time there. Highly recommended!
My dogs we well cared for and very happy with Mary and her dog Wes. Mary kept me updated about them while we were away; I felt confident that they were in good hands and didn't have to worry about them while on vacation. We will definitely ask Mary to care for them next time we travel.

Mary is attentive, responsible sitter. She was very flexible on my end for pick up and drop off and Guinness really enjoyed his stay. Highly recommended by master and hound.
Mary was just the type of dog lover I was looking for. This was a new experience for me and I was very apprehensive about having someone care for my dogs, especially since the older one is on a special diet and needs medication. Mary was excellent, she took care of them as if they were her own and relieved my anxiety by giving me updates and sent pictures. I will definitely use her again.

Mary and her dog Wesley took wonderful care of our dog Indy. Indy was happy with them from the moment he met them at our meet and greet to the time he left. Mary was also very accommodating for our last minute request. Indy was more than safe, he was loved! He received plenty of exercise, companionship and attention. We so appreciate that Mary was so close to us too. We went camping in Yosemite and were unable to reach Mary or she us, but we knew all was well and were able to relax. Thank you so much Mary and Wesley!
