Another great visit with Marcia! She definitely goes above and beyond to keep you informed. She's awesome!
Marcia did a great job with our cats. She even coaxed our fraidy cat out of hiding and was able to give her some love while we were gone. We felt very comfortable leaving our "girls" in Marcia's care and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.
Marcia always goes above and beyond. I will always use her when out of town. She is very good at keeping me in the loop.
Another great visit with Marcia. Great communication and the video updates are a very nice touch. Thanks again.
Marcia was great! She kept in touch over the weekend and the pictures and videos were a nice touch. Definitely will be booking her again!
This was our second time working with Marcia and we couldn't be more pleased. She's great with both our pets and very easy to work with.
This was the first time that we use a pet sitter for our 6 years old dog:), and we had a great experience with Marcia!!! She sent us videos and cute pictures with our little baby which I was sooo happy to see ! We will definitely use her again!!! Thanks Marcia from all of us!!! ??
Thank you Marcia for always taking such great care of our boys! Knowing that they are well taken care of always makes our trip so much more enjoyable. Great updates, our boys love her! ****We HIGHLY recommend Marcia ****
Marcia did a great job again. This is second time with Marcia and she took excellent care of my dog. She emailed me updates photos and videos. She even cleaned up the mess that my dog did and brought in the packages.
Marcia was great. Our Callie is not a people person but she went out of her way to make sure she was comfortable, not pushing it. Thank you so much and will definitely recommend to anyone.
Marcia is awesome! The Meet and great was awesome, very helpful and accommodating. I could not have asked for a better experience. I will be using her again, not even a question. Have no fear, she is awesome.
Marcia is great! Our three dogs really liked her and she was very patient with them (two are quite old and the third is quite annoying).
Marcia was great! She was flexible, accommodating and took wonderful care of our ferret Sake. We loved getting vidoes and pictures of Sake out and playing everyday.
******Highly recommended************* Marcia was wonderful once again. She makes our trips so stress free knowing that our boys are well taken care of. We love the updates and our dogs love her. Thank you Marcia
Everything went great! Both Leela (great dane) and Dexter (cat) were happy and healthy when we came home from Christmas vacation.
I used Marcia for a second time and once again I am very pleased with her service. She gives updates and pictures while I'm away which I enjoy having. I will continue to use her in the future.
Once again we had Marcia take Bella for a nice walk , and she did an amazing job , she is easy to communicate with , she sent us pictures and videos with Bella which i loved to see .
We highly recommend Marcia and we will use her services is the future for sure . thank you
Marcia did a wonderful job taking care of my cat Oliver while I was on vacation over Halloween weekend. I reached out to her only a few days before I needed to leave, since my regular sitter cancelled on me at the last minute, and she was totally willing to take on caring for him. She sent pictures and videos while I was away, which I thought was a very nice touch. I would recommend her to anyone in the area.
I had Marcia watch my ferret for the second time and she was wonderful. I loved getting great pictures and videos each day that I was away. I will definitely use her service in the future.
Marcia did a great job for us. Each day she sent a short video of what was going on with Socks. I would use her again if needed.
Marcia was great to work with. She took excellent care of our dog. She texted and emailed us updates photos, and videos while we were away. Thank you!
Marcia was great! Both days that she watched my ferret she sent great pictures and videos. She also accepted my request for a sitter the day before I went out of town. Will definitely be requesting her to watch my ferret in the future.
Marcia was excellent! She sent awesome photos and videos; it was very helpful and gave me so much peace of mind about being away from my animals. She took amazing care of my puppy, and was great with the kittens, too. She seems very well-rounded and her knowledge and care of cats and dogs is great. 10/10 would recommend.
She was absolutely WONDERFUL!!!! My dogs were very happy and well taken care of. Thank you for making our trip that much easier. Highly recommended!!!
We used Marcia for a one hour dog walk , everything was perfect , she is easy to communicate with and she knows what she is doing . I highly recommend her and we will love to use her in the future ! Thank you Marcia
Great experience as always...Marcia took my dog in even though she does not board anymore so I was extremely grateful! Thank you Marcia!!
Marcia is fabulous. She swooped in and saved the day when I had to take a weekend trip away. As usual my pups loved having her come over. They didn't even seem to miss me since they had Marcia!!!!
Reese and I love Marcia and are sad that she is moving away from us. Her new fur friends will be very grateful to have her. She pays close attention to details and is great with swift communication and letting me know if there are any concerns. I feel at ease knowing my dog is in her care. She goes above and beyond and is very professional. I would recommend her to anyone who wants someone who will treat their dog as her own.
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! That's the only way to describe Lola's stay with Marcia and her family. This was the longest vacation I've had away from Lola and the very first time I wasn't worried sick about her. Marcia was very attentive to Lola's needs. She kept me updated every step of the way. This was my first time using DogVacay and Marcia ensured that this won't be the last! I could go on and on, but I'll stop here :)
Second time Jackson (my yorkie) spent the weekend with Marcia and Fro and it was great! My dog already misses her dog and its just been a few hours. Will be back again for a third time when I I travel :)
Marcia was absolutely professional and kept me informed with messages and pictures as to how my old man was doing.
Marcia has been walking Blanca 4-5 days a week for a few months now, and we couldn't be happier. She sends us photo/video updates showing our pup having a great time while I'm at work, and she's extremely flexible with scheduling. We are very happy to recommend her!
This was the first time that our 10 month old puppy stayed anywhere over night without us. We told Marcia this and she was great about making sure that she sent us updates and pictures to show us that our puppy was doing just fine! She was always available to us via text message. We were also feeling a little anxious due to our dogs crate anxiety over night. Marcia handled this situation very well and told us that it wasn't going to be a problem. She seriously could not have been better for first time pet owners like us and we are so grateful for everything she did for our puppy!
Marcia is especially awesome in a jam. I emailed her late on a Sunday when I found out my schedule
would be a bit more hectic during the week than planned.She was flexible and immediately was able to help me out walking my two pups.
Its nice to be able to rely on someone to be available to help even when it is last minute!
I was nervous about hiring someone to walk my dog but Marcia made me feel comfortable. She pays attention to detail and gives me updates on his status plus Reese seems to love her!
Marcia is fabulous! She took care of my babies during the snow storm as if they were her own!. Can wait to book her again.
The price was right! And I like the fact that either Marcia or her husband were with Jackson (my dog) 24/7. He was never alone :) Very convenient and great host for Jackson. Will definitely use Marcia for my next vacation getaway.
Very knowledgeable host about dogs! Made Jackson (my dog) feel right at home. Extremely accommodating with the fact that I needed to extend my vacation an extra day at the last minute and her and her husband were totally willing to babysit Jackson the extra day. The daily photos and videos of my dog from Marcia made me feel at ease while I was away. I will definitely use Marcia for my next getaway!
Marcia continues to make Blanca happy on a daily basis. I hate leaving Blanca at home alone during the day, but it really helps to know that she will be so well taken care of on her daily walk :)
Marcia has been walking our 10 month old pup, Blanca, and she's been absolutely terrific. Blanca is much calmer when I come home now, and Marcia has been good enough to bundle her up in her little vest on the colder days.

I also love getting photo/video updates from their walks. Thanks, Marcia!
Marcia is fabulous! I have two pups, one that is young and full of energy and one that is a bit older and "cranky" at best sometimes. To be completely honest their have been walkers that have refused to walk my older dog because they find him too difficult; not Marcia! She took her time to win him over and was able to walk him even without me their. She has a gift with animals. I finally feel comfortable leaving my pups with someone in the Alexandria area. I can be certain that we will hire Marcia again and again =)
My dogs were the harpies dogs in the world with Marcia, she did an amazing job & even make it so I could pay in 2 parts instead of all at once (which really helped us out), she's just amazing & I won't hesitate to book her again, I wouldn't trust my babies to anyone else!!
I have to say that I never in my life thought I could leave my babies & feel comfortable & relaxed, but Marcia is amazing & she just took such good care of my babies that I'll most definitely will call her every time we have to leave them. I'm happy beyond words with her, she sent me pictures & videos every day, I couldn't be happier with her performance, she even trained my crazy golden retriever & pampered all 3 of them, they are going to miss her...thanks Marcia, you are the best!!
Marcia was very nice. Our dog had fun with their dog. She sent many updates, pictures and videos. I will strongly recommend her. She took care of our dog as if he was her own. Marcia went out of her way to make sure our dog had a comfortable time with them.
Marcia and her husband were great with my dog, Bella (12 yrs old). She had a great time with her playing with their dog, Fina (1.5 yrs old), especially, in the dog park. Marcia provided many updates and took some wonderful pictures and videos to my iphone while I was away for Seattle. I would recommend them to anyone.
Marcia did a great job walking my xlarge dog over the weekend. She consistently updated me on his walks, mood, eating, and did a great job communicating his needs. Her husband even went on walks with her, a whole pack, which I'm sure my dog loved! She has a calmness to her that my usually hyper and overpowering giant immediately responded to and had no problem handling him or his quirks.
