About Marlena

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there!
I have lived in San Luis Obispo over 8 years now (Cal Poly grad), but originally grew up in the country raising all types of animals! From dogs, cats, horses, pigs, sheep, turtles, rabbits, ducks, birds...you name it, Ive probably cared for it!

I am a HUGE animal lover and place their safety and needs first. I enjoy taking dogs on hikes, jogs, walks, playing fetch (basically anything outdoors) but also enjoy good some old fashioned couch lounging and tummy rubs.

I live in a 4 bedroom house off South Higuera with a medium sized fenced back yard with plenty of room to run and play. There are 2 other dogs in the household who are extremely friendly and calm, and love to friends over! If need be, though, they can stay separated or in the backyard if your dog/pet has special needs.

Im more than happy to come to your house to pet sit, pick up your pet, or have them over for a fun hangout :) If you need them watched on a workday, I work 9-5, but have flexibility to leave when needed to walk/play with them in the morning, afternoon, and evening.

Cant wait to meet you! Let me know if you have any questions!

Marlena is incredibly devoted, thoughtful and sweet and loves animals! She has taken care of my two dogs many times when I was out of town and they're always happy to be with her! She has a great yard with lots of room for running around and playing, and she also likes to take them for hikes or runs for an extra treat. She is a responsible and trustworthy pet owner herself and I would definitely recommend her as a reliable host!

Marlena would be a great pet sitter. She has grown up with animals her whole life and currently lives with 2 dogs and a cat. She is a responsible and loving pet owner.

Marlena loves pets like she loves people. She dotes on her beloved cat and treats our dogs as her own. She even comes home to visit often because she misses the pets! Sometimes we suspect she misses them more than she misses us. She is very patient and kind with all animals, and her background as an equestrian has given her even more experience taking care of big and little pets alike. I trust my pets and my child with this sweet and nurturing girl, and can promise that she will care for your fur babies like they are her very own.
