About Mara

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay at home mom with 2 young children ages 3 and 6. My children absolutely LOVE dogs. We have a Shih Tzu puppy named Cody, so I figured since we adore dogs why not take care of them in my home. I have had dogs growing up and as a pet with my family. We know it's hard to leave your pet with a stranger but rest assured we will treat your beloved fur baby as if it were our own. I will send you pictures every day with updates on how your pet is doing. I have a large fenced in back yard that dogs will love. I also take them for walks around my neighborhood it's not busy, great for walking dogs. For more active dogs we love going to dog parks.

I also keep a clean home so please make sure your dog is clean when you drop off and has their nails trimmed because I have small children.

Mara and her family took care of our year-and-a-half year-old Australian Shepherd while we were on vacation. It was great experience for us and for our puppy.



Mara took very good care of him, and integrated him into her family’s day-to-day routines making him feel right at home.



Aussies are very active and need a lot of exercise during a day. Mara played fetch with him several times per day and he loved to run and play with her kids outside in their big back yard.

He also had fun with Mara’s dog and another dog who she babysits during the day at her home. They played together nicely and gently.



Mara sent us video's and photos every day and we saw that he was happy and having fun. It really helped to make our vacation more relaxing because we knew he was in good hands.



When he had an upset stomach, Mara took good care of him, checked in with our vet and adjusted his diet and. Soon he felt better again!



We recommend Mara and her family without hesitation

Mara is a wonderful person who loves dogs! I was so impressed with her level of care- taking videos- sending them to me to show that my dog was so happy! But more than that Mara and her family genuinely cared and loved my dog while in their care! I feel like I ( and my dog!)totally lucked out finding Mara- and anyone who needs a loving home for their dog for a few or more days- you would luck out if Mara is not already booked!

My husband and I had to go out of town very last minute and the usual individual we book was unavailable. I frantically searched DogVacay for someone who'd be close and could check on our 2 cats daily, which is how I stumbled upon Mara. She replied to my message within 10 minutes and within about 30 agreed to watch my babies! She lives 20 minutes from me but we were able to come up with a solution that worked for both of us; she was so accommodating! She drove to my apartment the same day we chatted so we could meet and exchange keys. She texted me each day she came to the apartment and followed my pretty strict directions to a T. She was very kind and my babies were in good hands. Would definitely recommend Mara for your fur baby needs. She responds SO quickly and truly was a life saver for me!
