About Marilyn

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
At Paws & Play Dog Camp we offer your dog a unique, beautiful and comfortable place to call home away from home. The fenced camp sits on its own piece of land right next to the house within our large acreage of fenced land. The dogs have their own 4,000 sq. ft outside fenced area with two large runs that each adjoin to the "doghouse", a wonderful, big building .Their special place is doggie decorated complete with two cozy, bedrooms that house kennels and/or real beds, big pallets on the floor, whatever they prefer. There is also a large greeting room to welcome our guests and let them get familiar with the surroundings. One room has a ramp for access in and out and the other room has a large doggie door. The dogs are really spoiled here!! In the two "bedrooms" there is music or nature sounds playing in the background and of course soft lighting! Your dog can have great playtime outside, either alone or with another dog or two, by your choice. The two large runs offer plenty of space and free time for each guest, in that we are limiting these "resort like" spaces. We have an on-call vet close by the and we are licensed with the Dept of Agriculture for boarding in the State of Missouri. In some situations, dogs are welcomed inside the human home as well! We promise to treat your dog as if it were our own and provide it with a loving, fun, clean and safe environment! It is really an incredible and unique place that you and your dog will love!! There are three adults on the property (Marilyn, Cori and Julie) that will watch over your dog, each with several years of dog ownership, work in retail pet stores and/or volunteering at shelters. This combination is a great team. As an added note, the rate reflects a 24 hour period. In instances where you may need to go past the 24 hours, the charge per hour is $3. It is best to know approximately what time drop off and pickup will be so that we can give you a custom quote. It is also necessary that you complete the Vacay Discussion Guide and either email or bring with you when dropping off your pet. It is under the Help Section/What Do I Bring. We hope to be able to watch you dog for your boarding needs! You will both be happy!

Our usual pet caretaker was booked for Christmas, but I found Dog Vacay and Marilyn. I made the arrangements for my spirited 18-month old grand-dog, and her human and I were very pleased!

Marilyn's facilities are wonderful! Night came home clean, despite wet weather, because Marilyn does her best to avoid muddy runs and yards. She also took wonderful care of Night, ensuring she was comfortable with the other guests (just a few) and providing us with updates.

We'll be repeat customers!
Superb job Marilyn. Thank you!! Great facility. Kept us updated. Easy booking process. Great animal/facility/caretaker acclamation procedure. Love this place and bookmark g process is unmatched!
Marilyn was amazing with my dog Jackson! I will definitely be bringing him back to her. I was a nervous momma leaving my 6 month old boxer for the day, and she made me feel completely at ease! And he had a blast there!
Marilyn was great! She made sure Bentley was comfortable the entire stay and kept us updated with texts and photos. Bentley had an enjoyable vacay with Marilyn!
My dog, Carl, and I couldn't be happier with our experience with Marilyn! When we needed accommodation with very short notice, Marilyn responded to my inquiry almost immediately and let me tour her lovely facilities the same day.

Carl takes medication and has a special diet that requires refrigeration, which Marilyn easily took care of.

As a sensitive, rescued hound dog, he also has some separation anxiety but I felt very comfortable leaving him in Marilyn's care. She went to work trying to make Carl feel at home right away and when I came to pick him up, he ran back and forth giving excited kisses and wiggly hugs to both of us, assuring me that I had absolutely made the right decision!

When Carl's bowl's were accidentally left behind, Marilyn even volunteered to bring them to me. Excellent customer service!
Aspen is very spoiled and Marilyn took great care of her. She sent lots of text's and pictures to keep me informed of how Aspen was doing. I'm a worrier, so this was greatly appreciated. I've already booked Aspen's next stay. Will definitely recommend her to others.
DogVacay with Marilyn is the best thing ever!!
Marilyn went above and beyond with our Sadie. She kept us updated everyday with pictures of Sadie and messages on how things were going. She took care of Sadie as if she was her own. Sadie reclines in a chair with us in the evenings and so Marilyn let her recline with her.
I feel so at ease now knowing we have Marilyn at DogVacay whenever we have to leave our Sadie. Knowing she is watching over your fur baby is the best feeling ever! You can relax and enjoy your trip.
Our Sadie is high maintenance and Marilyn handled it beautifully!!
The accommodations were way above what I expected. Marilyn was great with my dog Lola and sent me several pictures throughout her stay. I would definitely book again.
My dog is 11 years old and I have never had anyone that took care of her like Marilyn. I would recommend to everyone. She is the very best and truly cares for animals. I will never use anyone else.
Marilyn's place was AWESOME! I will never use another boarding facility again! My Shih Tzu is 13 yrs old and Marilyn made sure she was comfortable and calm. I rec'd pictures everyday which I loved! During the stay, my fur baby got to listed to song birds playing in her room, had access to her own private outside area and had a dog bed she could lounge on in her room instead of being kept in a kennel for hours. This place is well worth the money!
My greatest fear was that my Izzy would not want to come home. Marilyn provided a loving, healthy and fun environment for our dog. The text messages and photos gave us peace knowing that our dog was also enjoying her DogVacay! Our Izzy stayed for 12 days, where she was well loved! Please do not hesitate to have your pets stay with Marilyn Teer! She is fabulous and her setup is amazing!
What a WONDERFUL spot! Marilyn was great with my dog's. I loved receiving the pictures that she sent throughout their stay. Best of all... they were as pooped as I was after Vacay!!
My dog Wilma thoroughly enjoyed her doggy daycare stay with Marilyn! Marilyn took great care of Wilma and sent me plenty of picture updates throughout the day. The area she has for the dogs is great as it includes an indoor and outdoor area for them depending on the weather. The area also allows the dogs to move from inside to outside easily by using a ramp that Marilyn has installed. I will definitely be using her again.
I would highly recommend Marilyn. She has a great indoor and outdoor play area that our dog enjoyed. She was organized and responsive to questions. She took time to get to know our dog and made us feel at home.
