About Mary Charlotte

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Pets cared for at 'Must Love Dogs'' will be treated like part of our family. We are typically at home, with dogs at our feet whether we are reading, gardening, watching t.v., or working on a project or hobby. Ours is a good neighborhood for walking with limited traffic. We have an acre of space where pets may enjoy supervised romping and play. This is adjoined to a forest that is perfect for cold weather, on-leash, exploring. In fact, our yard has been designated by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat for providing the required four basic elements of food, water, cover, and places to raise young to ensure wildlife may thrive. This is a distinction for which we have worked hard and of which we are very proud. We hope it will reflect to you our commitment to animals.

Whether your dog is left alone during grocery errands and run-of-the-mill appointments or given 24/7 supervision depends on the pet and your preferences and will be discussed at our 'Meet and Greet'.

Because we have dogs of our own, we sometimes take just one pet at a time unless multiple dogs come from one owner. When we do have another guest, at least one will be a repeat guest so we will be familiar with their temperament.

We have learned several things that pertain exclusively to 'Must Love Dogs B&B' since being affiliated with this great company...
(1) If your pup is used to using a doggie door, he or she will most likely be confused that there is not one here. No matter how smart pups are, it is unsettling and stressful for them to have to figure out how to communicate (and to a stranger) when they need to potty if they are used to using a doggie door.
(2) If your pet is a full-time outdoor dog with a fenced in yard, please keep in mind that the dogs we keep will always be taken out on leash. Our walks (anywhere from four to seven per day) are meant to be fun and pleasurable. If your dog does not enjoy walking on leash, or is only happy when able to run in a fenced yard, we are probably not the best fit.

3) While we LOVE puppies, if they are not housebroken, or are still prone to marking, please remember that we are opening our home to the pets we keep. We love to have them snuggled up on the sofa with us and even sleeping on the bed, but if your pet hasn't quite outgrown the above mentioned habits they might be happier with a host who has designated doggie areas.

At 'Must Love Dogs B&B' we treat your pups like they are our own. We hope the high number of repeat clients (100% have either boarded again or told us they would) is sufficient testimony to that!

In addition to being owned by dogs since childhood, I have worked on the animal rescue teams of a national animal rescue organization as a socialization and rehabilitation volunteer. My husband is at this party too and it is amazing to see how our guests love to sit in his lap to watch football or tennis with him!

Prior to affiliation with DogVacay, my husband and I have boarded dogs for our friends, family, and priests!

Mary Charlotte was wonderful with our dogs. She kept us informed and sent photos. It was a great experience and the dogs acted very laid back when we picked them up. Wonderful home and people.
Mary Charlotte and her husband are wonderful people and have a great warmth about them. I was sent pictures daily of my sweet Elvis sleeping on their bed or cuddling with them on the couch like he would do at home. It was such a relief to know that he was in good and loving hands with them. When I picked him up, Mary Charlotte had all of his things ready and organized and included such a sweet note. How lucky I was to find them! Looking forward to more visits :)
Recommend highly for your fur babies....Mary Charlotte was wonderful with my golden retriever and he was worn out and happy when we picked him up!! Will definitely be using her again in the future....
Roscoe had such a fun time with Mary Charlotte at Must Love Dogs B & B. This was the first time we had tried leaving our sweet pup with someone we didn't know and as soon as we went to drop Roscoe off we felt instantly relieved. Mary Charlotte went above and beyond while watching Roscoe and was sure to send us pictures with updates while we were away. She is very experienced and is sure that your pets get all the attention and love they need. She took him on multiple walks and he enjoyed playing with her 2 dogs and her daughters dogs as well. We will definitely be using Must Love Dogs B & B in the future when we have to go out of town without our sweet fur baby. So happy to have found Mary Charlotte! I cannot say enough good things about her. I would highly recommend her to everyone.
I can not say enough good things about Mary Charlotte! She truly loves dogs and it shows in her care for them. This was the first time I have had to leave our furry baby and I would not hesitate to leave her again with Mary Charlotte.
Must Love Dogs went above and beyond our expectations! Benson truly was treated like one of the family and we received pictures his entire stay ... We highly recommend Mary Charlotte to anyone needing a place for their furry family member to have a nice vacation. We'll be bringing Benson back to them our next trip!
Mary Charlotte did an excellent job taking care of our Great Dane, Louie----she sent us quick, little daily updates with some pictures to go along that really made our vacation that much better just knowing how well taken care of he was.
This is the second time Bella has stayed with Mary Charlotte. She had a wonderful time. We were given updates on how Bella was doing and a lovely note and doggie bag when she was ready to be picked up. she can't wait for her next dog vacay!
We booked our dog to stay overnight for a trial Before we leave her for a week in December. Within a few minutes I received a picture of thriller showing me that she'd already made herself at home which eased my concern. My dog is like my third child and I want to make sure she's happy and well taken care of. :) They even went as far as too accommodating how thriller let them know she needs to go potty, hanging bells at the back door. Thriller came home happy and exhausted and we can't wait to use them in December!!! She even gave me a copy of a sticker that I notice she had on her front door in case of emergencies to let people know we have a pet inside ;)
Loved her and would highly recommend her except the fact that I have to then share her with others! I've had a lot of bad dog sitters and she put my feelings about the others to rest. Mary did such a great job attending to my dogs schedule and making them as at home as possible. I also received pictures quite often over the course of the two weeks I was gone. Mary even bought my dog a toy for his first birthday! If you need a dog sitter who treats your dog as their own; look no further.
We could not be happier with Mary Charlotte. She went above and beyond our expectations. Our Angel was so happy there, and had such a fantastic time that we almost felt guilt for bringing her home! She was truly on vacation. We received constant updates with pictures which really set our minds at ease. Just fantastic. Angel is anxiously awaiting her next (already scheduled) stay at Must Love Dogs B&B!
Our pet was treated exceptionally well with Mary! We received consistent messages, photo, and video updates while we were away. I was a first time user of Pet Vacay and after meeting Mary, we will be keeping her on speed dial for future care of Truman. The price we paid for care of our pet was well worth the cost over what would have been spent to keep him locked up at a kennel. Knowing our pet was being well cared for by Mary made our vacation much better! We will be back!
Our giant schnauzer Esther had excellent care while staying with Mary Charlotte. She had fun playing with the other dogs and enjoyed going for her walks. We will definitely be using Mary Charlottes B & B again in the future.
We were recommended to Mary by our previous dog sitter so we anticipated a very loving environment for our two pugs while we were away. What we got from Mary with Must Love Dogs B&B was just that. Mary was very responsive while coordinating drop-off and pick-up times, as well as provided pictures of our babies having great play time in her home. We would definitely recommend Mary's services. Our boys were well cared for. We even found a personal note when we got home. Great experience.
As a pretty protective dog owner it means the world to me to find someone I trust to take care of my rescue dog, Zoe. I found that with mary Charlotte and her husband. Zoe was spoiled all weekend with doggie play dates, which we could see through pictures and videos from them while we are away. I recommend her services greatly!
We were recommended mary by our previous dog vacay sitter that "retired" so we knew we were in good hands with her. I highly recommend using her services, we have used them twice since and have been very pleased. We love all the play time and socialization she gets while we are away, and the pics and videos sent always remind us why we choose this site over a kennel : )
Mary Charlotte was very nice and accommodating with my tight schedule. My dog (Bella) took to her and her dogs right away the first time they met. I was kept informed on how Bella was doing daily and sent cute pics. Mary Charlotte took a sincere interest in making sure Bella felt welcomed in her home. When Bella needs another vacay I will not have to hesitate or look any further. Just call Mary Charlotte!
Mary was very professional and took care of my little boy, like it was one of her own. Both times I have used her, Radar has pouted because he didn't want to leave. No complaints here. Very professional and has the best communication via text and facebook.
Great second time at Mary Charlotte's!! Our pups love them and they are our first choice every time we need to go out of town! Thanks for the love!
We used Mary and Ken when we went to Mexico for a week. Our schedules made it so that we had to do a late drop off and our plane landing made it so we had a late pickup but they were more than accommodating to us. You can tell they really loved having treble with them they even gave him a new frisbee when he chewed his
I could not happier with our fur baby's stay with Mary Charlotte. She was very flexible with our short notice and even added on a day when our plans had to change. Our dog was very well cared for and we will definitely book with Mary Charlotte again.
Dash so enjoyed his stay with Mary Charlotte and her pet family! Her four legged family, as well as their happy playmates put him at ease upon our arrival. He was very calm upon pick up! We will definitely book with Mary Charlotte...often!
We couldn't have been happier with the care that Lt. Dan got while he stayed with Mary Charlotte and her family while we were on vacation. He was truly part of their family while we were away, and there was no doubt he absolutely loved her grandbaby from the pictures we got of them cuddled up together!
Wish I could give 6 stars! Our dog had an amazing time and was lovingly cared for. I could not ask for a better experience! I will definitely use Mary Charlotte/Must Love Dogs B&B again!!
I can't say strongly enough how happy I was to find Mary Charlotte. I felt comfortable with her immediately. My dog raced to her door as if she lived there too! She was willing to help us with a last minute booking and responded to my request almost immediately. My baby had fun and was treated like the princess she (thinks she!!) is. (and I knew she was in capable hands, so I could relax) Happy Happy Happy!!!
I cannot say enough good things about Mary Charlotte and Ken!! Their home is so comfortable and welcoming for people and pups. My Camilla was so at home there and they sent updates and pics several times a day. They treated Camilla as though she was one of their own and I felt so comfortable and happy that she was having such a fantastic time. Mary Charlotte and Ken go way above and beyond to make their canine guests and owners feel comfortable and happy!! Thanks, Margaret
Our experience with Mary and her husband was great, they watched our three dogs (of varying sizes and age) over thanksgiving break and sent us pictures along the way to make the separation go by faster for us. Would use again
We were so happy that Shiloh was able to spend the weekend at Must Love Dogs B&B. We know he was taken good care of, and it was truly a home away from home. We received many pictures and updates so we were able to enjoy our vacation knowing Shiloh was in good hands. When we arrived, all of Shiloh's things were nearly packed up and ready to go. We appreciated all the love and care that went into making this reservation a positive one. We cannot give enough thanks.
We left our dog and cat with Mary and her husband over fall break. They were excellent...kept us updated daily with pictures and messages from our pets. I would highly recommend them to all my friends and family.
Mary Charlotte took great care of our two dogs! She sent us pictures of their adventures. Our dogs had very different needs, one was older and needed a place to chill, while the younger one had tons of energy. Mary Charlotte took good care of both dogs. I recommend this host!
We couldn't be happier with the care that Louie received from Mary Charlotte and her family! She updated me with pictures throughout our weekend trip, and it was easy to tell that he was being loved and happy! Thank you for putting our minds at ease. We have already scheduled another stay!
Host was courteous and provided pictures of Merlin's visit! Thanks
