About Marta

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We look forward to welcoming your dog into our home. We are a family of teachers, a twelve-year-old veterinarian in training, and Whippet mix. We love all creatures great and small (from gentle giants to perky peewees), and regularly foster rescue pups for fun. We have a medium sized fenced back yard, a small doggie door for easy in and outs, and a dog friendly neighborhood for walks.

While staying with us your dog will enjoy belly rubs, walks, training with treats, being loved up by a slew of neighborhood kids and tuckered out by play dates with our canine friends. We guarantee your dog will go home tired and happy.

Our home is conveniently located between 580 and 13, in the Glenview neighborhood, with two top-notch vets nearby, and my aunt (who is a retired veterinarian) a phone call away.

Fiona loved being at Marta's. And I appreciated the texts and photos that Marta sent me while I was away. Fiona will be staying with Marta again!
Marta took great care of our dog Ellis! You can tell she really loves animals and has a kind heart. And her pup Chica is the cutest! Marta was great about checking in with us as well and sending pics throughout the weekend. Ellis had a blast with Marta!

Marta is great! My go to place for my pup when I am in the Bay Area. He always comes home tuckered out and happy.
When we met with Marta the first time, she had an air of confidence with dogs that immediately put us all at ease. My son, who is 8, didn't want to leave her house and hugged her when we left. Marta welcomed our pittie, Pixie, into her home for 11 days, and we knew she was in good hands the whole time. Marta sent us pictures and communicated regularly. We had never left her with anyone before, and as she's a rescue, we were worried that she'd be anxious. Pixie is 2, sometimes strong-willed and overly excitable, but Marta capably calmed her down when we arrived. When Pixie came home, she was calm and happy and seemed to have matured. Marta even put her on a diet, which we sort of knew she needed but hadn't quite done ourselves. Pixie is lighter on her feet and seems quite secure that we will always come back.

Marta was great! Upbeat, kind and lots of dog knowledge. Our dog had was well cared for and will definitely be back next time we need someone to watch him.
Marta is fantastic! Milou is always thrilled to see her and he loves hanging out with the mellow dogs who are staying with her and her own little cutie. Marta has been wonderfully flexible since I had several last-minute changes of schedule on this trip, which she cheerfully accommodated. She is the best!

Marta was an absolutely wonderful dog sitter!

When I first went to her house with my dog, I was greeted by the sweetest little french bulldog, older, with one blind eye. The whole time I sat there, Marta's daughter was giving my dog a thorough petting, and all this hair was flying off. Neither of them batted an eye - definitely dog people!

I had to get on my flight earlier than expected, and she let me drop my dog off a day earlier. When I got there, she even had a bowl of homemade soup waiting for me. So considerate and sweet.

I will definitely be dropping my dog off @Marta's next time I have to leave town. :-)

Marta is an amazing and caring professional. From the moment we arrived in her home, my two senior dacshunds Max and Duke were right at home. It had been a really tough week, with our move from LA to the Bay Area, and I had to leave for an out of town film premiere.

Marta's home is super dog friendly, she is attentive and attenuated to the needs of her furry charges. She even sent me some pictures of the boys enjoying sun in the garden during the weekend. I think they had more fun and relaxation than I did.

Would not hesitate to work with Marta again, and we look forward to many more happy visits for Max and Duke.

We adore Marta and the temporary home she provides Dori when we can't take her with us. She is aces all around.
My shy, sweet dog Henry loved staying with Marta! Her and her daughter made him feel right at home. Highly recommend!
Marta took excellent care of our pups while we were gone. They were clearly healthy and happy. Marta sent us updates and photos, and reassured us when we fretted.
Marta was absolutely lovely! She sent us frequent updates and pictures during our Frenchie's day vacay. He was so pooped when he came back, which meant that he had tons of fun while he was with Marta. We will definitely use Marta again in the future!
Marta was great to work with and I know Kola had a great time! Marta send photos and text updates that put me at ease.
Our old Lhasa, Klutz, came home happy, well rested, and healthy thanks to Marta and her family. We will definitely be using her welcoming services again.
Marta is the absolute best! She truly has a heart for dogs. Oreo spent a week with her and she went above and beyond my expectations to care for him and love him like he was her own. It felt like Oreo spent a week at doggie camp. I would definitely use Marta again.

We have only great things to stay about Marta and her family. With only minimal notice, we were able to have our dog stay with Marta for a 1-night "trial run", which went well, so we went ahead and booked a 7 day stay, and our dog returned happy and joyful, so we are EXTREMELY satisfied.

Can't say enough about our pup Penny's stay with Marta! She kept us updated on how Penny was doing, sent pictures, and was a pleasure to interact with throughout the entire process. We'd recommend Marta as a host time and again!
This was our first DogVacay experience - now, we're sold! Marta and her family were so welcoming to us and to Cooper. After our 'meet 'n greet', we both felt confident that Cooper would be in good hands. He had a great time playing at Marta's dog friendly home and yard. No doubt, he would be happy staying longer. Already know that we will include Marta as we plan our next vacation.

Marta was very warm and friendly, which immediately put my mind at ease. Buster was happy to spend his short overnight stay becoming BFFs with her daughter. Would definitely recommend.
Marta and her family are so warm and welcoming. I really felt like they were friends, which was perfect for my timid little dog. All in all the home and backyard was just lovely and perfect for any dog vacation. They live in a very safe dog-friendly neighborhood that's perfect for walks. Their live in dog is so cute and really respectful to her visitors. I will definitely go back again.

Marta and her family were so warm and helpful as we were looking for someone to watch our Jake last minute for a unexpected trip to see family. This was our first time using DogVacay, and we really picked a great host. Marta even went beyond the call looking up remedies for Jake for a inflamed paw (foxtail) he got just the night before we had to drop him off for our trip. We will definitely have Jake visit again and highly recommend Marta's services!
