About Marikita

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I absolutely love the company of any type of pet and it is my goal to make your fur baby feel at home! I own two dogs of my own, and they love having friends over to play! Activities include but are not limited to, lots of playing indoors with toys, training activities, going on walks, and visiting the dog park. I also have a smaller backyard, that circles the house. I have experience in both fostering and dog sitting. One of my resident dogs does require oral medication, so I do have experience administering medications if your fur baby needs it! I also will always have my car in case of emergencies. I am not opposed to visiting outside homes to care for your feline or doggy friends, but unfortunately cannot take cats into my own home as my sister (also resides in my home) is allergic. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions! Thank you for looking! We can't wait to meet you.

Our dog has stayed with Marikita multiple times and she has always taken great care of her.
Marikita was an awesome host. I appreciated the pictures she sent of my dog looking happy and relaxed while staying there! She also was very flexible with drop off and pick up times which went above and beyond what I'd expect!
Marikita was awesome. I was late to book, but she was super responsive & flexible. She was very attentive and took great care of my beloved family member. I would definitely book again, the ease and peace of mind is so nice.
Marikita was great! She sent us pictures while we were away. Our labs fell in love with her and even our grumpy chihuahua warmed up to her.
Marikita did a great job taking care of our two dogs. It was the evening of July 4th which is difficult for our dogs and she took such good care of them and even sent us pictures:) We would definitely use her again!
She was awesome as usual! She's the only person we will bring Rex to take care of. Her dogs are extremely friendly and get along so well and kept Rex occupied the whole time. As always she gave us regular updates on how Rex was doing. She is the best!
Marikita was so wonderful to work with. Initially, we got together for her to meet our dog and for our dogs to meet each other. Her communication was amazing from the point that we made our reservation throughout our entire trip. We got daily updates on our dog and she sent fun pictures on a regular basis to keep in touch with our kids. It was a real comfort knowing that our dog was staying with someone who obviously loves and understands animals. I will definitely be calling her next time we go out of town. We will probably even get our dogs together just for fun.
Marikita was awesome. Our dog, Ipsy, had a great time playing with the other dogs. We also got pictures and updates which made our vacation even more enjoyable.
Marikita was fantastic! She did a great job introducing our dog to her dogs, she was thoughtful about keeping routines/commands consistent for our dog, and she kept us updated with photos and comments. I think our dog's vacation was as nice as ours. We would entrust our dog with her anytime.
This was my first time using DogVacay and I was a bit nervous about the process but Marikita was wonderful. She sent me daily (sometimes multiple daily) updates about how Bender was doing which always included a picture and little snippets of information about what he was up to that day. I loved it, it helped ease the anxiety of being out of the country and so far away from him. I would definitely choose her services over a regular kennel any day because this way I know he's not cooped up and is able to play with other dogs and hang out with people. Bender and I will definitely return.
We took Rex to Marikita again and once again she was great! Rex has an upset stomach that morning and made sure to keep a closer eye on him to make sure he would feel better. She constantly gave us updates and let Rex out to play as much as possible. He napped all the next day because he was so tired from getting to play all day with her and her dogs. Rex stayed the night and she let him stay in her room since he doesn't like sleeping alone. I don't think I could ever find another puppy sitter as good and caring as her!
Marikita was very friendly and sent us lots of photos and updates while we were away. She took care to introduce her dogs to ours and I was very comfortable leaving our puppy with her :) We'll definitely be re-booking with her next time we go out of town!!
Marikita was great! She allowed my puppy time to get to know the house before she brought her other dogs inside. She eased him into meeting her dogs to make sure he would be comfortable. She played with him all day long and even got him to go potty outside! (Which has been quite the uneasy task) she constantly updated us with pictures and videos. My puppy had a great time there and I will definitely be asking her for her help again!
