About Marisol

We are dog lovers with more than 10 years of experience!
Bring your Small & Mid Size pet for a mini vacation with us in our home when you go away or when something unexpected happens!
I’m a stay-at-home Mom and our guest dogs are never alone!

You drop off your pet and provide their food and special instructions, treats and bedding, and we'll take care of the rest!
We live in single level home with a dog friendly fully fenced back yard. We also have a fenced pool for hot days where your dog is welcome to swim always supervised!
We also have dog a run space on the side of the house for the dogs to do their business.
We have a 3 year old miniature schnauzer who loves to play with other dogs and it’s a great companionship for our guest dogs!

We prefer minis, small, and middle size dogs, and elder dogs who need extra care and support; we take care of their medicines and we do daily walks with the dogs on leash on quiet streets around our neighborhood. We also enjoy hiking in the Indian Valley trails or we go play fetch at Novato High School field located very close to our home.
The dogs go in and out of our living area, and they can sleep in the bedroom with us right next to our dog Apache.

We Provide Discount for Pet-Siblings!!

PS. Pet Taxi pick-up and drop-off offered for extra charge based on availability.

We will treat your pet as our own!

Peace & Love!
Marisol & William

Marisol is fabulous! Chloe, a small but active Labradoodle, loves staying at Marisol's. Chloe gets LOTS of walks rain or shine. Great pics and updates via text while I'm away is a nice touch and puts my mind at ease. Chloe is well-cared for and always comes home looking happy and healthy.
Marisol and her husband were great! Our dog Ally really enjoyed her mini vaca.
This was the first time we've used petvacay and we could not be happier with the care Marisol took of our small dog, Cookie. We wouldn't hesitate to use her services again.
Marisol is the perfect person and has the perfect place for Popcorn.
From her friendly but serious attitude at the first contact to the way she handles my and others dogs is totally reassuring.
She was accommodating to a last minute request as well.
We will definitely hope that she will be available next time we will need a place for our dog.
I think Tully had lots of fun at Marisol's house. There were no problems, and I was very happy with the experience. I like the fact that Marisol specializes in small dogs as I comfortable that my young, small dog will not be overrun by big guys.
Taking care of a 5 month old puppy for the weekend can be a handful. Marisol was amazing, and our pup, Camper, came home happy and tired. She sent tons of pictures throughout the weekend, which put our first time puppy parent nerves at ease.
Marisol's house is beautiful and the dogs had plenty of room to play in the back yard. We're so glad Camper got to spend time with such a wonderful family! : )
Marisol was a great sitter. I was a bit nervous leaving my dogs with a sitter because our last one lost both of them, but I had a good feeling about Marisol and trusted that she would take great care of them and she did. She sent me pictures and updates, and was really flexible with pickup and drop off times. I will be using Marisol again in the future.
Marisol was awesome! She welcomed my pup with open arms, and Maple immediately felt comfortable in her home. I highly recommend her!
Marisol was so friendly, engaging, thorough and accommodating with us and with our 11 year old "Fredo" (Poodle/Bichon mix). She sent us photos of Fredo playing with her children and with her doggie. He looked like he was enjoying a very nice stay with Marisol and her family. We were able to relax and not worry about him during our 4 day trip. Their home was clean and neat with space for the dogs to rest or play. We will definitely continue to use Marisol's excellent services.
Marisol couldn't have been any sweeter with my little pup! She even sent me photos ... I was SO impressed!! Would definitely hire her again.
Marisol was delightful, took our dog on short notice and he seemed to have a great time there. Love the photo she posted and will certainly be back again to use her services.
Marisol is wonderful with dogs and has a safe and comfortable home for them. She kept in touch while we were away and even sent pictures. I loved the fact that she only takes smaller dogs as my little ones are afraid of big dogs. We will continue to book with Marisol every time we need a dog sitter.
This is a long over due review for Marisol. She watched our young puppy while we were away and helped ease our nerves with pictures each day of him enjoying his time with her. I would use her again the next time we need someone to watch our pup for the weekend. Thank you again!
Marisol was amazing!!! 2nd time using her, and boy is she awesome. Great communication, Sully had a blast, and was happy as ever. I reccomend her big time.
Our dog had a great time! Great communication which was key as it was a last minute booking. Marisol also was flexible in letting Marvis stay a couple extra nights due to travel disruption. We received frequent photos and updates. Could not recommend Marisol and her lovely family highly enough.
Annie had a great vacay with Marisol & family.
Marisol kept us updated with photos and notes which made us feel comfortable that Annie was not only being well cared for but was having just as good a vacation as we were. Marisol's kind heart and joyfilled home makes us happy to know Annie has a safe and fun place to vacay in the future.
Marisol was awesome! She even came to pick Rambo up! I was so happy to see how excited he was to see Marisol and her family. He jumped right in the car and happily rode off with them. I knew then that he was very attached to them and I didn't have to worry a bit!
Marisol was quick with communication. Sent me lots of photos, good ones at that (no idea how she got them both to sit and look at the same time!). They came home happy and tired, I know that they had a great time and were safe. Will be using Marisol again for my Friday dog-sitting needs.
Marisol was wonderful! My dog, Rambo, was so happy to hang with Marisol, her little girl and Apache for a few days. He's letting me know now that he is missing them!
Rambo has had some anxiety in the past when I go away but he didn't show a hint of worry, even when he watched me leave! he has a lot of allergies but Marisol followed my instructions carefully and he had no issues with itching at all!
Thanks so much to Marisol and her family!
Marisol was great! We will definitely use her and her family again for dog sitting.
Marisol was very friendly and welcoming to Boots. Thank you.
Marisol and her family were extremely welcoming and friendly! We could not do a meet-and-greet beforehand, but when we dropped Ellie off and met them, we felt completely comfortable leaving her in their care. They sent updates and pictures while we were away, and Ellie was taken very good care of :)
Athena loved her day with Marisol and her family :) She was never left alone at any point during the day...either Marisol or her husband were there at all times, which is perfect for a dog who doesn't do well alone. When I first dropped Athena off for day care, I got a tour of the house, and got to meet the family and watch Athena meet their dog Apache. Normally Athena is clingy when we are somewhere new, but instead of clinging this time, she ran off and started playing! I left feeling confident that this was the perfect place to leave her. Marisol is the sweetest person, and great at communicating everything! Also flexible with pick-up/drop-off times. Athena got a lot of exercise while there, and I know she had a great time! I highly recommend Marisol!
Marisol was the PERFECT host. She's very warm and friendly with lots of experience and knowledge about caring for dogs (including puppies). My puppy, Gizmo, is only around 12 weeks old and we couldn't take him on a trip that had been planned several months prior. I was hesitant at first about leaving him for the weekend especially since he wasn't completely potty trained yet, but was immediately put at ease when we arrived at Marisol's place. Gizmo felt right at home, playing with her dog, Apache, and Marisol showed us around. Communication was very easy throughout the entire process and we received several updates and pictures over the weekend. I would definitely leave Gizmo with her again if we had to be away.
My dogs were very welcome in Marisol's home. I was worried about leaving them, and was so happy to see them playing with Marisol's dog! We look forward to our next visit.
