About Magdalena

26 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Magda. I welcome you to my Loving Pet care. I'm a single mom of a 5 year old Alan.

I absolutely love animals and would love to care for your. In addition to 25 years experience with animals (my own pets, vet assistant and volunteer at Washington Humane Society) I have a degree in Biology.

We lived in a condo with three kitties; Baczek, Paczek and Smerfetka. In our community there is a large fenced dog park.

*Your pup must feel comfortable with cats to stay with us.

I offer great boarding filled with fun:

- 24 hr access to community dog park
- Great Falls hiking
- Morning running
- Play time at our dog park

I work from home, your pup will always have company.

Overnight boarding covers 24hr if picked up later there is $25 daycare fee.

Daycare hours are 7am-7pm if pick up is later there is a $35 charge for a daycare.

Thank you for stopping by!

Magdalena was great. We needed a last-minute caretaker and she came through. Our dog had only stayed at our house with pet sitters before this occasion but Magdalena made us feel at ease.

Wes was at a dog park enjoying himself shortly after we dropped him off, and Magdalena gave us regular updates and photos.

I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing quality care and professional service.
Magda was wonderful! She was very responsive and professional, and took great care of our pets. You can tell she truly loves animals and considers their needs at all times. We appreciated the frequent pictures while we were away-- proof that Chief loved just stay! Highly recommend
Magdalena was great! She was able to accommodate me when i was in a rush to leave town on business, and sent pictures to reassure me that my pup was doing well! Highly recommend!
Great service!!
Magda did such a wonderful job taking care of our dog. Unbeknownst to us, Lulu had a bladder infection when we dropped her off and went on our overseas vacation. Magda took her to the vet, gave her loving care and kept us fully informed. She went above and beyond.
Very pleased, have already rebooked with Magdalena! There's a special place in heaven for dog sitters that enthusiastically accept puppies!
Magdalena did a wonderful job on sitting for our dog. She sent us regular pictures of a very happy dog. We look forward to using her service again.
Overall good visit. Ran into glitch with another dog not getting along with my dog, but Magda was flexible and did walks with him instead to keep everyone safe & happy. Would recommend her and will use her again as needed.
Magdalena was amazing. I hired her as a dog walker for my 2 pups and she came on time, sent me pictures and told me how the pups did on their walk. I originally wanted her to come for that one week then any time I was working overtime but knowing that she took such great care of my dogs and let them out at the time I asked her to brought me such comfort that I'm going to ask about having her come every weekday! Highly recommend her!
My puppy just had a great time. She liked being with a child for the first time in her life.
Magdalena is a lovely lady. Our doggies enjoyed their stay. This apartment has many stairs so it was good to know there was an elevator option for our older dog.
Magda did great with coming to our place to let our dog outside while we were out of town. We enjoyed the pictures that were posted :)
Magda was great! She was so accomadating to work with and my dog jessie loved her!
Awesome! Chloe had a great stay!!! Thanks.
Magda was super awesome and made my 3 boys feel right at home! She shared pics with me throughout the day of them playing in the park and relax after a day of fun! I would definitely recommend her service to EVERYONE! There is no need for us to search for another sitter! My boys were in heaven and I felt comfortable knowing they were in great hands.

Thanks a million Magda!
Magdalena sent pics and video! Chloe had such a good time and was worn out from all of the fun. The best!!!
I can't say enough about how great Magdalena was with our Yorkie! She took her out multiple times per day for walks and to play in her local dog park, and she gave her lots of love and attention throughout the full week that we left our dog with her. She was great with pictures and updates and was even flexible with us extending our trip by an extra day. I will absolutely reach out to Magdalena for future dogvacays and I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for their furbaby!
Magdalena was terrific with Tank. We really appreciated her watching him for us and would recommend her for anyone needing a dog sitter!!! We will be back. Thank you!
Magdalena was great! I reserved the evening before I needed her, and she was more happy to help out with Charlie. She even went so far as to adjust the price of the reservation since I had chosen the wrong one. Great sitter! If there is ever a time I require a pet sitter for Charlie in the future, Magdalena will be my first choice. Thanks!
Thank you so much Magdalena for taking care of our Malibu. She definitely enjoyed the run at the doggy park. She was happy and worn out when we picked her up. Five stars for Magdalena.
Magdalena has been a wonderful dog-walker for us. She's so helpful and flexible with our inconsistent schedule. She sent texts and pictures after each walk letting us know how our pup did. We'll definitely be contacting her again.
No matter what I write it would understate how wonderful Magdalena is. I rescued a tiny kitty from the road before it got run over. Shelters were very full and I wanted to bring her home and keep her or find a great home. I had to find a safe place for her immediately because I was heading to Boston for work meetings. Magda provided a loving space separate from her other cats due to her young age. She knows how to raise kitties way more than I do and took amazing care of her-- and shared her knowledge with me so kitty would have a safe ride back to the Chicago area. She is incredibly responsible, loving, and kind. Honestly, after texting back and forth, I knew before I even dropped her off that she was in a great place where she would thrive. She constantly sent pictures and videos so I wouldn't worry. Magda has so much compassion for animals and is so organized and responsible that you can be sure your pet will thrive with her.
Magdalena was a great host for Freddy! She was understanding of his unique needs and took great care of him. And he just loved her cats!
Thank you Magdalena!
Magda is fantastic! She sends frequent pictures, takes our dog to the dog park frequently and is incredibly responsive. All round pleasure to work with.
Magdalena was great and so easy to work with. She took our dog Izzy on a nice walk or to the dog park each day. Izzy came home tired and happy. I'm so happy to have found Magdalena and would use her again in a heartbeat!
My dog looked very happy and i received many photos and videos of my dog playing in dog park. I could tell my dog was well taken care of and had a great time. Magdalena was very lenient with pick up and drop off times. She gets 5 stars and i will use her again. Her residence is very dog friendly and has a great trail and secure location for free play.
Magda was great! She and her son took great care if Winter.
Magdalena was very accommodating for our pup Waffles! She sent us pictures from his stay, and I must say, he had a blast and was tired when we got home!
Magda is awesome. You can tell she truly loves animals and her property is perfect for pups that need plenty of room for exercise.
Magda was excellent with my beagle mix Scooby. She was very patient with him from the beginning which Scooby & I were both grateful for! I recommend Magdalena to any caring dog owner to look after their dog when away.
Magda was great! She took wonderful care of our very anxious lab mix Nutella. Magda took care of her medication, gave her plenty of exercise at the dog park, and sent us lots of pictures. Nutella had a great time and can't wait for her next dogvacay!
Magda was great with my pups. Very professional and friendly. Trustworthy with an extra key and sent pictures of the walk. Great pricing and really came through in a pinch. Thanks magda!!!
Magdalena took great care of my labrador. She regularly sent me updates and pictures of my dog and was very accommodating with the drop off and pick up time so that it fit my travel schedule. I strongly recommend Magdalena!
Magdalena is the most compassionate and caring pet sitter. She truly treated our dog as a part of her family. I can't speak highly enough about her!
Magda is great and Onyx loves to stay with them! She sends text photos and updates regularly. The dog park in the complex is super. A wonderful place for my pup!
Magdalena is great! Since she lives in the same complex, it's super convenient for us to book with her.
Fitbit is our baby and we always dread leaving him when we go out of town. We're so glad that we found Magda! He gets really excited when we drop him off-which makes us feel so much better as overprotective dog parents. :) She is so attentive and takes him to the dog park inside her complex. He loves playing and she always sends cute pics of him running around with other dogs. I think he has more fun with her than with us! Highly recommended to all pet parents.
