About Mary-Kate

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! Our names are Mary-Kate and Joe. We have been fostering rescue dogs for years. Last year, we met the canine love of our lives and we adopted him after only fostering him for a few days. We are so in love with our "son", Draco. We always have so much fun hanging out with him at home and on all of our adventures and we would love if he could have a buddy to play with so that he can get socialized. Though we both work, we have a at least one day a week that I can work from home and spend time with our guests. We are home most every evening/weekend. We'd love to care for your dog too whenever you can't be with your fur baby. We will treat him/her like our own and Draco will LOVE the company!

We both grew up with family dogs in our homes. We've both volunteered with the Humane Society in the past and currently volunteer/foster for Ruff Start Rescue and have cared for dogs of all sizes/ages.

We do require visiting dogs to be dog friendly as Draco will want to cuddle/play with them a lot!

Since we are renters, we do prefer visiting dogs to be crated trained - though not required. We have extra crates to borrow to furry guests! We love all breeds of dogs and think bully breeds are adorable :) However, our home is only about 1000 square feet so keep that in mind if you have a big dog - I don't want them to be uncomfortable in our smallish space.

We do have a roommate who is a nurse whose schedule allows someone to be home with the dogs practically 24/7. Between the 3 of us dog lovers, your dog will get 2-6 walks a day, and usually a trip to the park on the weekends! Dogs are never alone for more than 2-3 hours at a time - and even that's rare. We live near Lake of the Isles and love to walk around the lake and go to the dog park.

Mary-Kate was AWESOME!! We left our dog Lucy with her for a week over the holidays and while we missed our pup we were so happy to see what a fun time she was having! Mary-Kate sent us lots of pics throughout the week, took Lucy one lots of fun walks, to the dog park and lots of playtime at home with Mary-Kate's dog. We could tell Lucy was very well cared for and was getting lots of love while we were gone. We highly recommend Mary-Kate and will definitely be booking with her again!
Mary-Kate and her boyfriend did awesome with my puppy. I had to go out of town and be away from him for the first time but they made the transition very easy. I got daily updates on how Bailey was doing, and how he was sleeping. I am very happy with this booking and would definitely recommend ! Plus, they have the cutest puppy ever that will be your fur baby's best friend.
Mary-Kate was awesome! Was prompt and the updates I got from her were great. I even came home to a vacuumed floor! Definitely would recommend to others.
Mary-Kate was great! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking.
She was my absolute life saver since I had to make a last minute reservation for my dog somewhere when other plans fell through. She was SO kind and easy to work with! I think my dog almost wanted to stay with her! She even took her to the park, let my dog sleep with her (since she usually sleeps with me), and washed the blanky I brought with! A++++++ =)
Mary-Kate is a wonderful pet sitter! Our dogs Ducky and Saffron stayed with Mary-Kate and Joe for three days and their "DogVacay" could not have gone any better. From my initial inquiry, Mary-Kate was very responsive and answered all my questions and was very friendly. When we dropped the dogs off, we were invited into their home and were given time to see our dogs interact with theirs, which certainly helped put me at ease. We received daily updates and even a few videos from the dog park. Our dogs were clearly so happy and well cared for. We will certainly be booking with her in the future. I highly recommend this host. Thank you for taking such good care of our pups!
Mary-Kate was great! It was my pup's first time away from home, and with other dogs, so I was a bit nervous - considering how small he is. After just the first night, Mary-Kate sent photo/video updates showing how much fun he was having. It was a great opportunity for Bronx to socialize and Mary-Kate provided just as much love for Bronx as he receives at home. I would highly recommend Mary-Kate to anyone and I will definitely be back for future vacations!
Mary Kate was a wonderful caretaker for my dog while I was away. She provided daily updates and photos that made it apparent t dog was having a great time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a caring/loving dog sitter!
Our pup, Kingsley, was so lucky to vacay with Mary-Kate and Draco! Very easy to contact and always sent photo and video updates throughout the week. We would definitely rebook!
