About Mary

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Ken and I have several dogs, small dogs under 11 pounds and one larger dog 72 pounds...they all get along with other dogs. All of our dogs have the run of the large (pet proof) back yard (with CCTV) and the entire two lower levels of our home, all laminate flooring with long runner carpets. Our pets are happy and healthy, with all shots and wormed on a regular bases, also all flea and tick and heartworm preventatives are administered monthly. My husband, Ken and I will be taking care of your pet(s), I am retired and am home 24/7, my husband is home at night and the weekends, so together we can give your pet what he/she needs, lots of love and attention, play time, comfort and fun...we can handle puppies through seniors, we have more than 30 years of experience. I used to show and breed dogs (on a small scale) for many years, so I can handle almost anything that could come up. When you leave your pet/pets with us or have me stop by to feed your pup and let it out, can rest easy and be sure that your pets are in good hands...sincerely, Mary G

My visit was planned within 2 weeks and she was ready to watch my babies for the very first time. She greeted them with open arms and her dogs were very friendly. I received an update later that day with pictures which assured me they were doing well. My dogs had a great visit, I will for sure use her again!!
Cooper is in safe hands with Mary and her gang of pups. It's such a wonderful experience for him. I highly recommend Mary.
Mary was so kind and warm and loving to Cooper immediately. I have no concerns whatsoever leaving my baby in her care. We've already booked two more visits & I am confident he will be happy and well cared for. He will visit Mary on a regular basis from now on.
I felt so comfortable leaving my Whitney with Mary. She is a senior special needs Yorkie and Mary was so warm, compassionate and loving. Took really good care of her; received pictures and updates. I already reserved another stay with Mary. So happy to find a home away from home for Whitney!
Mary was great with Ferris and all his special needs. He takes 8 medications multiple times a day, and Mary stayed right on top of his schedule. I know he had a great time and played with lots of new friends, because he came home exhausted! Getting pictures and reports often during my vacation is helps me to relax knowing Ferris is doing well. Pick-up and drop-off were super easy and non-stressful. Thank you for taking such good care of my special boy.
Worked out great. Wonderful hosts.
Mary was great with our Pug Frankenstein and I know he had a great time because he slept on the short car ride home! She was very responsive when I would call or text, and was very accommodating to us and our schedule. If we need a pug-sitter again I would go back to Mary!
We were very happy with our experience and relieved to have found a secure place for our dog when we are away! Thank you Mary and Ken!
Our dog Tyson had a great time with Mary. She personalized his Vacay to make him feel comfortable during his stay. Would definitely recommend her.
Roscoe had a great time with all the pups. He was tired and happy when we arrived home!!
Mary was great! Our dog Dodger is still exhausted from his stay.
Mary and Ken have very nice home to safely watch our dogs. Mary sent us pictures during the time when or dogs were in their care and they looked content, playful and comfortable. My Chihuahua tends to be a little skittish and they were happy to give her the tlc that she needed. My other dog is a dogs dog and had a blast playing with Mary's pom's. You can tell that this family loves what they do and will take the time to treat their dog guests as their own. We will definitely use their sitter services again as the experience was very good with no surprises.
Mary and her husband are very companionate dog lovers!! They loved our Molly girl has if she was their own! She sent us photos and an update while we were away! Mary even cut Molly's nails for us! We will most certainly use Mary again in the future!
I was very happy to have found Mary. I didnt want to have to leave my dog in a kennel, even a nice one, I felt a home would be a better fit for my scared baby. I was nervous about my dog Sage meeting Mary's dog Mercedes, but Mercedes was very sweet. When my dog cowered, (which Ive since read can be a big trigger for other dogs) Mercedes backed away and gave her space. It was if she was saying "oh Im sorry, I didnt mean to frighten you" and then my dog wagged her tail and sniffed all around Mary's big, spacious, dog proof fenced in yard. I look forward to bringing my dog there many times in the future.
Mary and Ken are great!! Our pups were well taken care of and had a blast staying with them for the week. They are especially wonderful for anyone with a special needs dog. We had Mary and Ken all set up to watch our pups while we went away for our wedding and honeymoon. 3 weeks before we left our Akita tore both his ACL's and required bilateral surgery. We were sure Mary and Ken wouldn't want to take on that big of a challenge. We were so blessed to find them. Their Mercedes had the same surgery a few months prior so they took Dexter in without hesitation, gave him all his meds, and monitored his walking and recovery while we were away. We highly recommend this wonderful couple!! You can be sure your fur babies will be well cared for while you are away! Thank you so much Mary and Ken!!
Roscoe has a great time with Mary and Ken. He enjoys playing with the other dogs. I know Roscoe is well cared for with them and I am at ease on my vacation. No worries!!
Mary was wonderful with our dog. Her husband and her really know how to handle your dog and keep them safe. I would definitely recommend Mary.
Mary made me feel at ease quickly after bringing Roxy to her house for her stay. Her house is very pet friendly & the yard is great for dogs. Mary even made a bed up for Roxy which I really appreciated! Before I even left Mary's house when I picked her up I had spoken with her about roxy's next stay with her. I highly recommend Mary for your dogs next doggy vacay, she will treat your dog as if it were her own & that's what any doggie parent wants!
Mary is absolutely amazing! She cares for each dog individually. My husky puppy bandit is always so happy when he leaves her house! I recommend her to everyone needing a sitter!
This was our first time leaving our puppy, Rocky. After meeting with Mary, we knew she was the perfect choice for him. She was friendly and caring - and absolutely loves dogs. She kept us updated on his activities and sent photos several times during the week. Mary has several dogs and we were happy that Rocky was able to socialize and have some playmates. :) We will definitely be using Mary again in the future.
Mary is the "BEST". I have a soon to be 10 year old Boxer. I was worried about leaving her with someone I didn't know. Mary made me feel right at ease the minute I met her. She sent us photos and let us know how Zoe was doing the entire 9 days we were away. Ken and their boxer Mercedes were a wonderful bonus that helped keep Zoe entertained. Hope I am lucky enough to be able to book with Mary and Ken the next time I go away!!!!
They were awesome!! Very quick response to the reservation and from the reaction of our furbaby, Bailey, they exceeded our expectations. Getting pictures during her stay was an added bonus to know she was in great hands. Definitely reserving with them for our next trip!
Roscoe was so excited when we arrived home. He had a great time playing with Mercedes!! Thank you for taking such good care of Roscoe. Our minds are at ease when we are away as we know he is in good hands.
Roscoe enjoyed his dog vacay!!!!! He was tired when we got home. I am so glad to have found Mary to watch Roscoe.
From the pictures Mary sent to us, and our little sheltie's happy demeanor when we picked her up, it seems like Shelby was well cared for in Mary's home. We appreciated Mary's flexibility and her experience with dogs and would not hesitate to have her watch Shelby the next time we go away. Thank you!
We needed someone to watch our two big black dogs for a quick holiday weekend and she gladly took them in. Great couple and loved getting pictures of the dogs while we were away.
Roscoe had a great vacation staying with Mary and Ken. When we picked him up he wanted to follow Mary back into the house. We were updated during our trip and were happy to hear Roscoe was doing well. He is already booked for a second stay!!
My dog had a quick visit with Mary, and she was arming and accommodating. Would highly recommend a stay with Mary!
I was very pleased with Mary. This was the first time my Yorkie was left with someone. After meeting Mary and her husband, I felt their warmth. After traveling, I called to check in and Mary assured me that my baby was fine. My dog is a bit spoiled and finicky, and I was worried how she would adapt. I was put at ease, and would easily recommend Mary again. Without a doubt, I will use Mary in the future. A big thank you to Mary for caring for my dog.
Our experience with Mary was great! She sent us lots of pictures which helped us relax on vacation knowing our boxer, Presley, was well cared for. We knew he had a great time because he came home exhausted from all the playing and running around he did. We will definitely be using Mary again in the future!
Mary was great. To really good care of Dex our dog. He played alot with Mary's boxer and both got along very well. Mary sent us pictures of Dex during the week. Highly recommend. Her husband was great too. Nice couple. Thanks, til next time.
couldn't ask for better people to watch cooper. He had a great time . Will bring cooper back anytime . thank you very much see you soon.
This was my first time leaving my dog Chestnut with Mary. I cannot say enough wonderful compliments about Mary and my overall experience. She was extremely patient and loving with Chestnut until he became familiar with her and her husband. Mary answered all my calls/questions, sent me frequent e-mail updates on how he was doing, and also sent numerous photos of Chestnut throughout my entire vacation. I could tell immediately from the photos how happy he was and how well he was being taken care of. He enjoyed the company of the other dogs, especially Mercedes, and loved playing and being in the yard. I would highly recommend Mary and have already booked Chestnut’s next mini vacation with her.
Buster had a great time! He was tuckered out when I picked him up and certainly slept well.
We have left our dogs with Mary numerous times. She is a wonderful, caring person. We always feel comfortable knowing our dogs are in capable, loving hands. Thanks Mary
Mary is an awesome host. We went on a monthlong trip and were able to enjoy it knowing our fur babies were well cared for. She sent us pictures and updates all through the trip. We are booking again for a 2 week trip in June. Thanks Mary!
Mary took care of our dogs over a long weekend. She was awesome! Our dogs had never been left with anyone outside of our home so I didn't know how they would be when we picked them up but they were so happy. Mary is a great caretaker and very sensitive to the needs of the dogs. We recommend her highly. She also sent pictures during the weekend to show us how they were doing in her care.
I was happy to find Mary G to care for my dog, Lance, at short notice during a holiday week when I had to take care of a long distance emergency. She was welcoming and I saw she and her husband were experienced in caring for dogs. During my time away I contacted Mary by email about how Lance was doing and received not only a quick reply but a picture of Lance playing in their beautiful yard enjoying the company of her dog. Lance returned home healthy, happy and clean (bathed and nail trimmed)! I would recommend Mary G- she provided excellent care for our sweet dog Lance.
we left our dog for 5 days with Mary. She was very professional and even gave him a bath.She Sent us pictures everyday and when we called to check on him, she called us right back, she gave us any details we needed to know.I would highly recommend using her, and will return anytime we need to go on vacation.
When your dog sleeps for 2 days after coming back from his DogVacay, you know he had a good time!!!
I needed someone to take care of my two Yorkies while we went on a two week vacation. I found Mary in our area and she met all the criteria I needed. I have an elderly dog who is fussy and a younger one who is really active. Our older one does not like other dogs either. Last time we went away my older one refused to eat. Not only did Mary answer all my questions she made me feel confident to go away. We were encouraged to call and Mary sent lots of pictures. We highly recommend her for your pets. We will be using her services in the future as needed.
Mary took great care of my dog Harlee for 32 days. She gave her the best care any dog could receive. Mary gave Harlee lots of attention and love. Mary administered Harlee's insulin two times a day and made sure she fed her on a regulated schedule. I am very happy to have found such a personable dog watcher and I would definitely recommend her to others.
