About Magda

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dog will love to have his or her vacay with me! My home is safe, quiet and comfortable for all stages of your baby's vacay. I start every day with walks, play time and tend to their meals and belly rubs. My dogs will welcome your baby with open paws. I send lots of pictures and will be available 24 hours for any worries or concerns you may have.

The $40 a night includes everything from daily walks, playtimes, feeding and any other loving care needed. Your dog will be treated just like they were my own! (Of course with any special instructions from you that will be honored scrupulously).

My home is two bedrooms with lots of room for playtime, naps and relaxing. I have a medium sized fenced in back yard but I regularly walk my dogs and guest dogs two times or more a day. I stick to a schedule for feeding and walking throughout the day. I understand sensitive dogs, free spirited dogs and unsocial dogs. I can administer medication and will accommodate the most picky of all breeds. My dogs and I are here to keep your mind at ease while you are away.

I also offer household multi-pet discounts and extended monthly stay discounts.

I understand the frustrations with traveling and being away and the need to be back with your baby. Therefore, I do not have restrictions with drop off and pick up times. We will communicate and work out all scheduling so that everything is as smooth and convenient for you as possible.

Please feel free to message me for questions, concerns, pricing, or anything else that you'd like more information on.

You and your baby will not regret it.

We recently left our two pups with Magda and she was great! Our puppies can be high energy and a handful together but she took great care of them. Her home is very dog-friendly and has a nice patio area to let them explore around. Magda sent us pics of them with their new friends and they looked so happy! She is very easy to work and communicate with. We had to change our reservation at the last moment but she was very flexible about it and really helped us out. You can't go wrong leaving your best friends with her!
Reilly had a great time with Magda and her doggies!
She came home full of energy and big smile on her face. Magda sent pictures daily for me to see my Reilly!
Magda had to work late but had someone meet me to pick up Reilly.
Would definely have Reilly stay there again.
Magda was great with Lucy! Lucy can be very timid with new people, but Lucy seemed to warm up in no time. I will definitely be using Magda in the future :)
Magda was amazing and I will definitely use her again when the time comes;)!
Magda was and is so awesome. I am really glad I was able to find her off of her. She was fantastic with my puppy and very flexible to our needs. She is right down the street from me which makes it very convenient. I just want to say thank you and we will be 100% using your services again.
Henry had a great time with Magda and her dogs. He really enjoyed having other doggies to play with. Magda sent lots of pictures while we were away for the weekend. I felt comfortable that Henry was in good hands.
Gwen loved her stay!!
Magda did such a great job watching my dog for the day! She came home exhausted which means she did a great job of exercising her! I really appreciate what she did for me! Would recommend highly to other friends!
Awesome! I was a little bit worried since my dog Indie is a bit high maintenance and has terrible separation anxiety, but Magda was awesome! She sent so many pictures and Indie came home happy, like he spent the night at a friends!
she is fantastic !!
Second time using Magda for our pup Penny. Great person to take care of your dog. Just a great person who loves dogs. Penny was in great hands with Magda.
Magda was great. Penny had a great time spending a long weekend with Magda and other pups.
Magda is my "go-to" sitter for my fur-girl. I never have to worry as I know that she will be in good hands.
Magda is very accommodating. I would recommend her to anyone.
Magda was wonderful! kept us updated and sent pics all the time. this was our first experience leaving Ava with anyone other than friends or family (she is six and a half years old) and we will definitely be back!
Magda was an excellent host - communicative, helpful and great with pickup and drop off. Our dog returned home happy and social just like his normal self. Would definitely book with Magda again.
Magda is a wonderful sitter. I highly recommend her.
We had to drop off our puppy super early in the morning and pick him up very late and she didn't mind at all.
She would send us updates and photos thru out the day.
We will definitely use her again!
Magda is wonderful. Rajah had a great stay with her, and made friends with quite a few other dogs! Magda has 2 dogs of her own, and had a couple last minute bookings so there were about 5 dogs staying together at her place, but Magda knew how to care for each one so it turned out to be a good social experience for our little Yorkie.

We will definitely have Rajah stay with Magda next time we need a dog sitter
I recommend Magda,my dog Princess likes staying with her. Thanks Magda.
Perfect Vacay! Thank you!
We booked Magda for a week for our cruise. It was the longest we have used this service for Cosmo. Magda was amazing! She sent pictures everyday! How wonderful it was to get back on land and see all the great pics of our baby's vacation! Over 15 pictures of him playing and relaxing. She was wonderful with him and he was happy and calm when we picked him up. Thank you Magda!
I would recommend Magda to anyone. Roxy came home a happy, tired dog. She has been sleeping since she came home, so I know that she received plenty of exercise! I really like the way Magda sent lots of pictures of my pooch with little comments. It really set my mind at ease so that I could enjoy my vacation.
Great communication and regular updates while we were on vacation. Thanks for taking such great care of our pup!
Magda was so accommodating and Sophie had a great vacay! She went above and beyond to make sure Sophie had her food that I forget to bring. The pictures I received were very nice and showed me that Sophie was having a great time. Thanks, Magda!
Magda is one of the finest Dog Walkers and Sitters I have ever dealt with. She is a pleasure to deal with and is willing to take our pup anytime when we have a travel need. I recommend Magda to everyone!
Magda, is wonderful! I highly recommend her! Camille burns
From all the pictures that Magda Sent it sure looked like Spike had a great time with Magda and her Two sweet dogs
This was Maybels first Vacay with Magda, and she had the BEST time ever! I refuse to take my dog to a kennel anymore because of bad experiences, and I can honestly say this was the best decision I could have made. Magda was an Excellent Sitter. She took our baby last minute, and actually accepted to watching our pit bull. Magda was 110 percent with her communication with us. We got multiple pictures and updates daily. For once I didn't have that horrible feeling in my stomach, dropping off my furrbaby. Not to mention, Maybel didn't have anything wrong with her after picking her up. Magda was truly a life saver and I can't thank her enough. With Magdas sweet outgoing personallity and her love for dogs, I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Magda!!
No need to take your dog to a kennel when you can take him/her to Magda. Sent plenty of photos and constant updates. Took exceptionally good care of my dog. Highly recommend, if you're in need of a sitter, calling her and scheduling an appointment, as you will not be disappointed.
Magda always gives Rocky all the TLC he needs. I love the pictures she sends me EVERY day. Michele Caruso
Magda was great with Howard! She sent us so many photos and kept us up to date on his days. He had a great time and was tired out from all of the playing when he got home! We've already requested another vacay for him with her!
Caring, compassionate, dog lover who pays attention to every detail of your Dog's special requests!!!
Magda is definitely pawsome! Dulce could not have been in better hands. We got pictures and updates daily and she looked very relaxed and at home. Best choice ever!!

Magda thank you so much for making us feel good knowing Dulce was really being taken care of!!
We are repeat customers at Madga's, she is the best! Our dog always enjoys going and Magda has been extremely accommodating with drop off and pick up times. I also enjoy all of the pictures and updates we receive. As long as she will have us, we will be going to Magda's!
Magda is so caring and engaged with my very neurotic dog. She is the first to reach out if she has any questions or concerns. I love the photos she sends of Rocky's quirky antics. Rocky always comes home happy and well cared for.
My dog was well taken care of and had a great time
Another great vacation for Porter with Magda!
Magda was awesome for our little dog Louie! She came to the rescue at the last minute and took care of him wonderfully. I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Magda!
Magda was great with my dog. She was exceptional about keeping me updated everyday during my vacation and sent plenty of pictures. He was a very happy camper when I picked him up!
Love Magda and Jorgi always seems to have fun!!
This is my second time booking with Magda and it was great! She accommodated my very last minute request and was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. Thanks Magda!
Magda was awesome..flexible with the schedule! My dog usually has separation issues but he felt right at home with Magda.. made me a little sad he wasn't as happy to see me.. But nonetheless I know That means he enjoyed himself! ☺
Princess loved staying at Magda's! We will definitely be using her again for future trips.
Magda is great! She's thoughtful and responsible. I love that she sends me pictures of dog during his stay. She has also been sensitive to my dogs special needs and takes the extra step to make sure he's safe and cared for. I love that my dog ran into her home when I dropped him off for another visit instead of trying to leave with me. Magda provides a great home to shelter your pups when you can't be home with them.
Great host. Fast response to my last minute booking & easy to reach; she even sent me photo updates.
Just picked up Nellie from Magda's home.....and she looked so good!!!! Magda sent me pictures every single day of her playing, sleeping, eating and even watching TV! I will certainly bring her to Magda's home again!!!
Flawless reservation. Magda was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. She was wonderful with Cosmo and gave us photo updates. He was calm when we picked him up, not overly anxious when he is in stressful situations. Cosmo had a great time. Will definitely book again. Thank you Magda!
Madga was great with Jorgi I felt confident that our dog was happy and well taken care of. I would defimately recommend her to others.
Just recently booked Magda for the second time to watch my Puggle for a few nights. Magda was very flexible in accommodating my last minute vacation request over the Thanksgiving holiday. She is amazing!! She sent pics everyday. I felt comfortable knowing that our pup was in good hands.
Magda was very accommodating and worked with me to make the drop off easy. The house was spotless. When I picked Rocky up he was playing with her bigger dog Puffy. Rocky was clean and happy. I am sure Rocky enjoyed himself. I am very comfortable with this host and plan to use her again for my next trip.
My Puggle stayed with Magda for 3 nights recently, and we couldn't be happier with our choice! Her home is clean and her two pups are sweet and playful. I felt good knowing that my Puggle had two buddies to play with while I was away. Magda sent pictures everyday with updates while we were gone and upon returning, our Puggle was happy and tired. That's a sign of a true dog staycation! We would absolutely book Magda again.
