About Mary

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and welcome to Mary's Pooch Paradise. I have been taking care of pets for over 30 years. I offer personalized service for each client including daily walks to the park, lots of socializing, indoor/outdoor playtime, room to roam, afternoon naps on the sofa and when weather permitting a trip to the beach. There are no cages, dogs sleep in the house and are treated like family. I take the time to understand your pet, get to know their likes and dislikes. Since my service is so specialized, I only take a few pets at a time.

Due to the extra attention needs and training of puppies (under 18 months), there is an additional $5 fee per night. There is a $5/day holiday and $10/day last minute booking charge (last minute is anything less than 72 hour notice).

Please feel free to contact me for a discount rate on multiple dogs or longer stays.

Mary was the perfect hostess for our Sophia
First she reminded me I hadn't fully registered for our stay and she was filling up. We couldn't get to a meet and greet ahead of our weekend - But I could give her enough info to let her determine if our girl would mesh with her other guests. Her yard is very dog safe and secure. She spent a good amount of time greeting us to make me comfortable to leave for my weekend.
Great dog vacay host!
Mary watched our pup for three days and each day, my dog was so excited when we arrived at her house. Mary was friendly and gracious, and really treated my pup well. I am so thankful for having found Mary's service and will definitely be contacting her again when we need puppy care!
Great doggy sitter!!
Mary was an amazing host to our dog. She made pick and drop off so easy, and made our our night away from him carefree. If we ever find ourselves in Gilroy again, we will not hesitate to book with Mary!
This was a great find!!! Mary was an awesome sitter for our dog Charlie!!! Charlie is a momma' boy but when I picked him up, he actually said hello to me and then proceeded to give Mary kisses!!! I was delighted that he liked her!!! We will definitely visit Mary again!!! Thank you very very much Mary :)
Jo had such a good time at Mary's. We really appreciated Mary's expertise with introducing the dogs during our meet and greet and also, when we dropped Jo off. Jo was literally pulling us into the backyard when we dropped her off. She had so much fun that she was "dog tired" when we picked her up and slept very well that night. We will be sure to reserve again with Mary when the opportunity arises.
We took our two Sheppard Mix youngsters and we were not sure what to expect since it was our first time leaving the dogs behind. Mary helped us in feeling better about the process. During our vacation she let us know how things were going and sent us pics. When we got back to them they looked so happy.. She also gave us great tips and information. She is definitely someone that genuinely loves, cares and respects animals! We are so happy we found her! She is awesome! We will be definitely be going back!
Mary B provided an awesome stay for my two dogs. Having her service made traveling for the holidays so much easier!

Both dogs were well taken care of during the stay - lots of play for our younger dog and some more relaxed activities for our older dog.

Mary was nice enough to send pictures of our pets having a great time and getting some exercise. A great little perk.
Our 5 month old puppy had an awesome weekend with Mary! I was a little nervous to leave him with someone else for the first time but I could tell that he would be in good hands. He came back healthy and I could tell he had a great time! We will definitely be paying Mary another visit the next time we need somewhere for our pup stay!
Mary was wonderful with our dog. She kept in touch with us sending updates and pictures. I would recommend her to anyone who is picky about their dogs care!
Excellent as always!!
GEORDI loves Mary!!
My active, social, energetic puppy had a fantastic stay at Mary's, This was her third vacay with Mary and she had a great time. I can tell that every time we get in the car, she thinks she is going back and seems excited....I am assured she had a great time, and happy she was so well taken care off. It is great to leave her and know all will be fine.
Mary was very tender and caring with my older dog. She brought him for a walk and also played ball with him which he loves and I appreciate! He was relaxed, sleeping happily inside when I arrived. It was a successful visit - Thanks to Mary!
My 10 month old puppy has had a wonderful experience for a week with Mary. She was well taken care of, and happy, healthy and loved. I am also happy to be able to know my furry baby is taken care of so well while in her care. Mary is a true dog lover and the dogs know this and respond to her.
Mary did a great job taking care of Belle. She appears to be very involved and compassionate toward the dogs in her care. We will definitely plan to work with her again when we need to leave Belle with someone for awhile.
So, again, Mary took loving, exceptional care of our Stella. The thing with Mary is that she not only loves dogs, she "gets" dogs! She has a great connection to our little creature and seems to thoroughly relish Stella's quixotic behavior! We are just overjoyed to have found her!
We couldn't be happier! Mary is awesome and our little Stella is so content at her home. Mary has a gentle manner, listens carefully, is truly intent on understanding and tries hard to discern the nature of each little creature she is entertaining. We so appreciate her and her wonderful sense of humor! She has a gift in caring for animals and her joy in doing so shines through. How fortunate we are to have her.
Mary is an awesome dog loving person. Her home and wonderful backyard are so perfect. The meet & greet went well, my Chiquita liked her immediately. When I dropped her off, I went to bring her carrier inside and she was sitting on Mary's lap. I then knew I had found the perfect person to watch my furry four paw baby. I have peace of mind knowing I can travel and leave her behind with the BEST care and love. Chiquita was actually spoiled, she had other dogs to play with there and had the best time to be social, and she loved the resident cat.
Mary was a wonderful host for our 3 Great Danes. She was attentive to each of their individual personalities and treated our "old girl" with the care she needs. Thank you for the picture updates. You made going on vacation more enjoyable since we didn't have to worry about our pups. Thank you!!!
Awesome as usual! Mary is great with our dog!
Mary B. was wonderful with and to our puppy, Buddy. I contacted Mary just a couple of days before we needed to leave town....finding a place for Buddy was not anticipated (since I thought he was coming with us!). Mary said she had the space...but, we both thought it best to meet a day before so she could meet Buddy and so we could meet her. The meeting went wonderfully and we confirmed our arrangement for three days. Mary worked on training our little guy and even gave me some helpful tips:) She sent pics every day to let us all know how he was doing. Just like parents....we took our baby gate, his crate, toys, food etc. Mary showed us where he would be sleeping when he was not out playing. I liked taking Buddy to Mary' was like taking him to a friends house.....not a big boarding house where he might not get enough attention. I highly recommend Mary B. and worked very well for us....and he will be going back!
She was amazing with my dog Geordi! She treated him like family and gave him lots of special attention! She sent lots of picture updates, too. Will absolutely and definitely use her again!!
