About Nala

Nala's Main Line Doggie Daycare and Overnight Camp makes dog boarding fun and easy. We offer a comfortable dog-friendly home with a fenced-in outdoor play area and the perfect dog park atmosphere for lounging or running and sniffing around.

Staffed by experienced, life-long dog lovers with the patience and love to care for every dog as if s/he were their own, we cater to each individual dog's needs and treat your pet like family. Dogs love the attention and affection while pet owners love the peace of mind they get when boarding their 'best friends' with us.

Your pet will be housed in our home (not a kennel). Consequently, the number of dogs that can be accommodated at any one time is limited. We fill up quickly and encourage you to book early.

Services include: Daycare: Half Day/ Full Day/ and Sleepovers. Optional pick-up and drop-off transportation.

We have a long list of satisfied repeat customers, testimonials, and references. Come visit us soon!

Donna always does a great job. Keep up the good work.
Rosie enjoyed her vacation! It was her "home away from home".
Buttercup has stayed with "Nala T" a number of times when we're away and it's now like her second home. We're extremely cautious about leaving our dog with a sitter and we have never worried for a second about leaving her with "Nala T". When our dog sees her she wags her tail and is very happy which certainly helped to reassure us. "Nala" is loving and caring with Buttercup and we'd highly recommend her.

We recently picked Winnie up from another stay with Donna and Marv (she was with them for a week). We could tell she was well loved and happy while we were gone! Donna is great at communicating with you prior to and during your dog's stay!
We highly recommend Nala T - our dog Clark had a great time and we never doubted for a second that he was being well taken care of. It's so nice to have this option for our future boarding needs!
This was the first time leaving our dogs with anyone other than family. We were very comfortable (and so were the dogs) from our first visit. We knew that they would be well taken care of while we were away.
Thanks a million Donna and Marv for the love given to Buddy. Buddy seems so content when we get him it's as though he has not one concern in the world. We appreciate the detailed care and clearly your professionalism in working with dogs.
Donna was very nice. Her house was immaculate! It was the first time we boarded our dog Juneau. She was very patient with the dog. We had a graduation party for our son and we could enjoy ourselves without having to worry about the dog. I would definitely recommend Nala to our family and friends and would use her again! Thank You so much!!!!

Donna and Marv take excellent care of Winnie - she is happy and content and enjoys their house and backyard! They've watched Winnie several times already and we have future stays booked too!
Kalee was very energetic and happy when I picked her up. She had been enjoying the enclosed yard at Nala's, especially since it was a nice spring-like day. Nala's is a warm welcoming and quiet environment, and we felt very comfortable leaving her there.

We have already booked another stay. Thanks, DogVacay! Karen R

We've always known that Donna and Marvin provide excellent care for our pooches. So of course we went on vacation without any worry at all, and their regular updates kept us smiling and confidant.
Donna and Marv,

Thank you so much for the love and attention given to Buddy. I just saw the photo of him today as I did not get online very much in California. He looks 'super comfortable' and quite 'at home'. Your kindness and love of dogs is much appreciated.
Our best wishes for good health and much happiness in the New Year to you and yours.

Monica and Gary

always great care
Donna and Marv were great! They were very accommodating and were able to take care of our boxer Kona for a weekend on short notice. She had a great time there and came home exhausted! They told us that they usually do not walk dogs, but because we asked, Marv took Kona out for a walk over the weekend as well. We'll certainly keep them in mind next time we need a place for Kona.

Donna is always so kind and accommodating. She takes excellent care of Walker every time he stays with her and Marv so that I can relax and enjoy my time away.
Donna and her husband are a lovely couple whose dog ownership days are in the past. However, they have a fully fenced in yard, and lots of love to give. Maisie, our puppy miniature golden doodle, had a great visit. They had one other visiting dog for part of the time and Donna had us come by beforehand for a "meet and greet" with the other dog. All was well.
Will definitely use them again.

Great
My dog loves staying with Donna! Great home setting with people that love dogs. Would not hesitate to use Donna again!
Donna was a wonderful host. She was very accommodating to my two dogs who spent the night at her place. She even sent us absolutely beautiful photos of the dogs enjoying the sunny weather in back. They honestly seemed to be really enjoying themselves. Much better than many alternatives, and she was very understanding when we got stuck in traffic and had to return a bit later than expected.

As I've come to expect, Donna and her husband give Smokey lots of love and attention. He even hesitated when I came to pick him up. Her email during our vacation made us feel great. Donna is the best!
A great big THANK YOU to Donna and and Marv for the care and attention given to our dog, Buddy. Donna's interest for what works best for a pet is so appreciated!
They very kindly let us drop Izzy off a bit earlier then we originally asked for so we could get to the airport earlier. Izzy looked happy and comfy in the picture they sent. Will use again.
We were very pleased with the way Donna and Marvin took care of Pandu during our two week vacation to India. This is the second time Pandu our Springer Spaniel has been to their home. We were regularly informed with great pictures of how well he was doing. We forgot to give Pandu the Frontline treatment and they were nice enough to run to the local Pet Store and purchase one on our behalf and administer to Pandu. Their home is like a second home to Pandu

Walker always has a great time at Donna and Marvin's. He made himself right at home, including digging a little "nest" under 1 of Donna's trees!
Indie loves staying with Donna and Marvin. She jumps out of the car and runs to the front door when we arrive. I know she is happy and not stressed at all visting in their home. They have a wonderful deck where she can lay in the sunshine. I do not feel guilty being away because of Donna and Marvin's care.

My dog had a great time! I love that I know he is happy and I don't need to worry about him while I am away!
We have never boarded our two Westies's (Charlie and Tess), before and we were thrilled that the "kids" had such a great time. We took great comfort knowing that they were in extremely competent hands and in a lovely and safe home away from home where they could be free to be themselves. Our sincere thanks to Donna and Marv.

tasha's second home. thx donna and marv
Always happy with Donna and Marv. They took Walker at the last minute w/ severe thunderstorms forecast (he is storm phobic) so he wouldn't have to be alone all day while I was at work.
Audrey Hepburn, our standard poodle, had a great exploring the clean and lovely home and yard. Marvin and Donna are attentive and caring, and the best recommendation is that Audrey was relaxed and happy when we picked her up.
Thank you Marvin for taking such good care of Riley!
See multiple previous reviews. Ver happy, once again
great
great as always
Our second doggie came home feeling very content after his day out. Thank you Marvin and Donna!
We picked up a very contented doggie after his day spent with Donna and Marvin. Thank you!
Cooper had a great time with Donna and her family- I felt so relaxed knowing my dog was in safe hands and having a great time- thank you Donna for your warm hospitality, Cooper can't wait to come back for another visit and we highly recommend Donna for a safe and happy stay for your dog!

I can't thank you enough for taking care of Jak! I am very particular with who I leave him with & and after our meet & greet, I knew I would feel comfortable dropping him off. Having a last minute need that you were able to accommodate, I will definitely be using you guys in the future. I could tell he enjoyed his stay :) Thanks so much!!

As usual, Roxi had a very happy and safe stay with Donna and Marvin. THANK YOU!
This was the second time our dog stayed with Donna and we could not ask for a better experience. Our dog came home very happy and healthy, and Donna is a pleasure to work with. Next time we go away, Donna is absolutely our first choice. Thank you Donna!

Thanks again for a great overnight stay! Your kindness is always appreciated! Gia and her human.
Always perfect. Tasha's home away from home.
We were lied to and our dog was attacked during his stay resulting in an emergency room visit and stitches! 1) Donna told us that she watches the dogs but the truth is that she does not stay nor is she ever actually around the dogs beyond the meet and greet. 2) Donna told my Wife and myself that her and her husband never have any dogs at their home over 25 lbs, but our dog (15 lbs), was attacked by a field retriever (120 lbs) which they were also dog sitting. 3) After the dog was released from the hospital, he was given medication. When we picked the dog up from Donna's home, he was extremely lethargic. We discovered that they had been giving him twice his dosage of medicine. He was not supposed to be around any other dogs until his stitches were removed which Donna informed us would not be a problem since they "feel really bad". There was another dog, a very nice Beagle, but putting that aside, another dog when he was suppose to be around any. 4) Donna told us that there would never be a time in which the dogs would be home without either her or her husband present but when we picked up our dog from Donna's home, neither of them were home. Instead their son, who didn't even know our dogs name, was there.

fabulous
great as always
Donna and Marvin took such wonderful care of Pandu, I cannot express it enough in words. They completely put us at ease and always had reassuring words for us that everything would be fine. And it went well indeed and Pandu looked happy overall.
Again we were very happy with Donna and Marvin's hospitality. It is obvious Roxi had a very happy stay with them and it is comforting to know that we can go away and leave her in such good hands. Thank you Donna and Marvin!
Lucy had another great stay at Nala's. thanks so much for taking such great care if Lucy!
Once again, my pup Bagel had a lovely stay with Donna and Marvin and once again I feel so lucky to have found them. Bagel was happy and tired when she came home! I am sure she enjoys their warm home and fun backyard, but what's most important to me is that I can they care to make sure is has a nice time. It's so hard to leave my dog even for a night, but I really do feel much better knowing that she is with such kind people.

Once again, we were extremely happy to leave Roxi with Donna and Marvin.
A big weight has been lifted off our shoulders knowing we can leave Roxi in a happy, safe environment while we are away. Thank you.
I have used Nala's Mainline Doggy Day care many times, but this time Donna and Marv surpassed themselves. I was involved in a serious car accident at 5:00 in the evening on my way home from work. After some tests at the emergency room it became clear I wasn't going home that night and my first concern was for my dog Walker. I had a friend contact Donna at 9:00 at night and she didn't hesitate to say they would take Walker that night and keep him for me until I was home and able to take care of him. I couldn't have been more relieved. I was able to focus on taking care of myself and not worry about my dog. Thanks to Donna and Marv again for the excellent service they provide which raises the bar by a lot!

As always, Donna and Marvin took exceptional care of Smokey while I was away. They love dogs and it shows in their care of them.
Lucy had a wonderful dog Vaca with Donna & Marvin. Their home is clean, their yard is spacious. She was given lots of love I can tell. I rec'd photos and updates often which made me feel good. Lucy seemed happy and is looking forward to her next dog vaca.

couldn't be more accomodating
Fabulous Great for tashA
We were able to go way knowing Roxi was truly well taken care of.

She definately had her own happy vacation too - in a safe and loving environment.

The updates and photos sent to us while we were away only confirmed what we felt about Nala's DayCare when first we visited them.

Thank you Donna and Marvin!

great care thx for taking care of tasha
This was my first time leaving Gia with Donna and Marvin~I was a little apprehensive about leaving my anxious pup at an unfamiliar home for the day but she did great. I look forward to using their services again!
Donna and Marvin were absolutely ideal! They are lovely people and keep a lovely home. I know my pup really enjoyed her stay there, and I was not nervous at all (which is unusual for me when I leave my puppy). Donna has such a kind demeanor that I can understand why she makes such a nice host. She was flexible, responsive, and incredibly pleasant to work with. I would definitely ask them to host Bagel again, and I recommend her to anyone!

Ollie had a great time with Donna & Marvin! We left him for 8 long days, the first time in his little life he didn't spend the night with his mom, but he was such a happy little puppy when we picked him up! We got some photo updates while we were away, which made it easier to not worry about how he was doing. I would love for Donna & Marvin to pet sit him again, and I'm sure Ollie would love it too!

We know Bridget is in very good hands when we leave her with Donna and Marvin. They are definitely very kind and loving people. They would take extraordinary care of any dog in their home. Donna and Marvin are trustworthy and carimg people. We know Bridget receives a lot of attention and hugs when she vacations with them. They are just exceptional in our opinion. We trust them completely when Bridget is in their care!!!!

Thank you Donna & Marvin for taking such good care of my little boy! We left our little Ollie with them for several hours so he could get used to the house since they will be watching him for a whole week while we go on our honeymoon. He seemed like he had a great time! I'm very happy I found such great dog sitters!

This was the first time my dog Walker spent more than an overnight w/ Donna and Marvin. I was gone for 8 days and he was great. Donna sent me an e-mail and photos during the week. When Walker is stressed his eyes become bloodshot and when I picked him up at the end of my trip his eyes were clear and bright! He had a wonderful time w/ all the attention and belly rubs.

We had a great experience with Donna and Marvin who could not have been any nicer. Casper looks like he had a very good time and he returned home just as he was when we dropped him off (I would say he was good as new but he's 8 years old!). We appreciated getting photos of him while we were away. Next time we need a dog sitter, Donna and Marvin will absolutely be our first choice. I think that says it all. Thanks!

As always, Donna and Marvin are a joy to work with.
We are happy to find Donna and Marvin for my dog before our trip. They are very flexible and helpful even though it was a last minute booking. Definitely, I'd like to come back and recommend my friends.
Even though this was definitely pricier than I usually pay for a sitter, Donna and Marvin were totally worth it. My little girl was so excited and felt absolutely comfortable with them. This was so apparent when I picked her up. I even got photos sent to me that showed how much fun she was having! They have a gorgeous house with a little garden for the dogs to play in.

Send your pooch for a real vacation! You won't regret it :-)

They are lovely people, and I always feel confident that my dog is in good hands when there.
I have used Nala's Doggie Daycare and Overnight Camp many times and will continue to recommend them unreservedly. Donna and Marv take wonderful care of Walker and he is always happy after staying there!
My dog, Abbaye, had a wonderful day at Donna and Marvin's! She came back happy and tired. They are flexible and offer lots of attention to dogs in their care. We were also very appreciative of the email and photo update we received. We will definitely be using their doggie daycare services again!

Sweetest couple. booked last min and they responded quickly. When I arrived there with my english bulldog Lola, I immediately felt at ease...Lola walked straight into their home like she owned it! Even tho I didn't know Donna and Marvin personally, their home felt welcoming. I knew that leaving Lola under their care was SAFE, and I didn't have to worry about how she was going to be handled. This was the first time I ever let someone other than family watch her....HIGHLY recommend. Thank you again Donna and Marvin...now I have someone I trust to look over my beloved Bullie :)

I don't have one bad thing to say about Donna and Marv! They are wonderful! They took my dog at the last minute (2 days before I had to leave). They have a beautiful and clean home and treat your pet like their own. They also have a great fenced in yard. Donna will send you an email too updating you on how your pup is doing. I will definitely be sending my dog back-staying there was like a vacation for her :-).

Excellent.
Donna and Marvin were wonderful hosts to my rambunctious scaredy-dog. They have a lovely home with a great back yard for Scooter to romp in. Would happily use again!
Tasha had a wonderful time. Couldn't be happier with her care and their dedication.
This host gets two paws up!
Excellent care.
Donna and Marvin were wonderful with Mack. Their approach was geared to his energetic personality, and they were so flexible with his particular needs. We DO think the price is high compared to our other dog sitters, but we had such confidence in leaving Mack we accepted it. Their home is immaculate, not often the case with dog sitters, and that means a lot to us.
Mack had a little trail period before the overnight and he was happy to go back, which we know is a good sign!

Donna is wonderful. She loves dogs, and has a beautiful fenced yard for them to play in.
Excellent care. Very responsive.
I was very happy with everything about Donna's professionalism, graciousness, and flexibility, and her lovely home and yard. She was kind enough to take my request for evening doggie care at the last minute, even rearranging her schedule to accommodate us, and she hadn't even met my dog or us before! And Dylan had a fabulous time romping at her house. He was happily tired when we brought him home, and he was clearly well cared for. I hope to use Nala's again (I just hope she's not booked all the time!) and I highly recommend this host.

Donna is warm, calm and caring. My dog Walker took to her and her lovely home immediately and he's normally a dog who becomes anxious in new situations. I met w/ Donna before leaving Walker for the day and had a good feeling about her, but still worried that Walker would be stressed. I couldn't have been more pleased when I arrived to pick him up and found he greeted me calmly w/ a gentle tail wag and then turned and headed back outside into Donna's beautiful and dog-friendly garden! He clearly felt relaxed and happy there and Donna even took pictures for me which she e-mailed. I will be having Walker stay w/ Donna regularly and highly recommend her to other concerned dog owners.
