About Maribel

1 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Woof woof! My name is Maribel and when I am not spending time cuddling with my favorite four legged friends (or my two legged live-in boyfriend, Bryan), I work as a paralegal in a small boutique law firm in the West Loop. I am a veteran PAWS Chicago foster parent. I have been fostering cats and kittens for over 5 years. I am also the family pet drop off center and care for my siblings' pooches when they go on vacation. I live in a cute little coach house apartment in a blue collar working class neighborhood on the South West side of Chicago. There is a small yard that your pet can freely roam around in. I also live less that a mile from the park and walk there often. It's great for running around in and exploring. My boyfriend Bryan co-hosts our guests on the weekends when he is not working on a job. He is currently working construction and is my main handy-man! He is GREAT with dogs! He was the proud parent of a Weimaraner/Lab mix beauty for over 9 years. We are looking to adopt a dog of our own but we haven't been chosen by the right dog yet. This seems like a great way to fill that void until we meet our life long companion. We love the companionship that only a cute little critter can provide!

Awesome as always!
This was the first time that we weren't able to take our 2 ladies, Vida and Zara, with us on vacation, so we wanted to find a home-like sitter for them. I was admittedly very anxious and nervous but Maribel was a perfect fit! Our meet and greet went really well and made me feel very comfortable in our choice.
She and Bryan made sure our girls were happy and safe while we were away. We were sent videos and pictures and were completely rest-assured our girls were doing fine. They are a warm couple who truly love animals, and our dogs were both visibly happy and content. I also loved the fact that they were very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times - it really helped us out a lot.

I have already told friends about Maribel and Bryan and have given them the highest recommendation. They are definitely #1 on our dog-sitter list!
Maribel was great! We have used other DocVacay doggy sitters and this was by far the best experience we've had. This was a bit of a long stay away from home for our guy as we were gone for a week. We received regular updates (photos and videos) of our little pooch looking happy, healthy, and well-cared for. Maribel was also very flexible with our schedule which was greatly appreciated as we had very long travel days. I will totally recommend Maribel to any friends looking for a dog sitter and look forward to using her again.
We love leaving Riley with Maribel so much and we've already done it twice. The communication with her is easy and prompt. Maribel is such a warm person and easy to make arrangements with. Our doggy takes daily medications and he also has leash aggression, but none of these were an issue for Maribel and Brian. Instead, Riles was spoiled rotten with lots of attention, playtime and hugs. Also, it is extremely convenient that we can have M & B pick up, drop off or give Riley a bath. We are looking forward to leaving him with Maribel and Brian again!
I was nervous leaving Brownie with a stranger but after they met, it was a match made doggy heaven. Maribel sent videos and pictures of my happy dog throughout the week. He was happy and healthy. I will gladly book with her again. She is now our official doggy sitter!
This was my first experience using dogvacay. I did not know what to expect but Maribel and Brian made it very easy. We were so lucky to have found them. They took care of Rio like he was their own. I was at ease leaving Rio in their care. They provided photo/email updates and we're always quick to respond.
Maribel was great! She sent me a lot of pictures of our dog while we were out of town, and it was obvious how much she cared about him. I would definitely recommend Maribel to others and I hope she can take care of my dog again sometime.
Our dog had such a great time with Maribel and Bryan the first time, he wanted to have another Vacay with them! They are awesome hosts and we look forward to having our dog stay with them again :)
They were great host for my dog and great communication even sent me pics of my dog looking extremely happy in their home
Maribel and Bryan were amazing hosts for Donnie! From the minute we met them, we knew they would take care of him as if he was their own. They were extremely flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, and they were happy to let Donnie run around their house, nap on their couch, and even sleep in their bed at night! They sent hilarious pictures of Donnie, and even a video of him playing fetch at their local park. When we picked Donnie up on Sunday, he was exhausted from all the fun he had at their house! Donnie will definitely be vacationing with Maribel and Bryan in the future :)
We were out of country, and unfortunately our normally sweet dog was aggressive to our initial host’s cats. Dog Vacay helped to find a new host, which turned to be a miracle. Marbel and Bryan cared for Cody as no one did before. More importantly, Cody found pure love in their home. Needless to say, we will leave our dog with Marbel in the future, and everyone should too.
