About Marleen

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I now except CATS, birds, hamsters too..

Your BEST friend will be safe and happy in my little Pet's stay cation home.

Your dog will be treated like they are my own. I take care of dogs as it gives me the opportunity to meet all kinds of breeds and personalities. My home will be their best option other then their home.

My building has a big in closed back yard and trail near by.
I will take your dog for 3 walks/day minimal.

Dogs with disabilities are welcome. I have a frequent pup visit that is completely blind and I make sure he is always in my visual field and comfortable and make sure he knows where his food / water and toys are at all times.
If your dog is a cuddle bug I will cuddle and if they have lots of energy I will bring out all the toys and energy they require.

I am just a dog lover that want all kinds of personalities and characters around me as often as I can.

It was our puppy's first full day away from us, and she came back exhausted from all the fun she had had. We were happy to know that she did fine away from mommy and daddy.
Marleen & Clint went above & beyond as we didn't get home until late Sunday evening. They came back & fed Mischa, walked her & stayed until almost 9:30pm so she wasn't on her own for hours. My girl is 15 years & the last two times she went to the kennel, she got quite sick. Too much for her to adjust to anymore.
It was a relief knowing she was being well cared for in our home.
Would highly recommend & will book them again!
They even carved a pumpkin & it looks fantastic.

We are so lucky to have found Marleen and Clint. They took care of our Kassy as if she was their own. I think she misses being with them. They sent photos and messages keeping us up to date on how things were going. We will certainly use their services again. Thank you both so much.
Doug & Cheryle.

Great with our little pup - he's not quite yet ready for doggie daycare, and Marleen and Clint made sure Joey was happy throughout our working days! Highly recommended!

Our 6 months old puppy stayed at Marleen's for three days and had a great time. She sent us so many updates during the stay and picture, which made us feel good and comfort. She is great dog sitter. Thanks, Marleen and Clint!
Marleen was super great ! She sent me a few photos of my boy playing and texted me a few updates which made me feel very good about being away from him ! I will definitely being using Marleen again when I need a helper for Meeko :)
Marlene is a true dog lover and truly did all she could to make Bandito's stay as comfortable as his own home. He took to her and Clint right away and as I saw in the daily photos she sent me, he even ate well the first night. He normally takes a few days to accept men and never eats the first day or so that I am away. I was away for 8 days and Marlene texted me little details about their time along with the photos. This gave me such peace of mind to hear and see him being so relaxed with Marlene just like home. I have found myself an EXCELLENT dog sitter!

Thank you for taking care of Mocha. Great people and place for small family member. Definitely recommended...Mocha just can't wait to go back next week.
I couldn't be happier with our choice. Marleen is very special. Her house felt like home for our little dog. I could see that, not only by looking at the pictures but specially the way she was interacting with him. He was always on her lap, enjoying his vacations as well as we were. He came back home super happy and healthy. I'm absolutely sure we will bring him to Marleen whenever we have to travel. Thank you so much!

We left our two dogs with Marleen for 11 days. She took great care of them, and was always available via text. She sent us updates and pics throughout our holiday, which made the time away that much better, knowing they were doing well!! Our pups had a wonderful time with Marleen, and we would definitely recommend her :)

Marleen was amazing! We had a pretty needy large dog and she took care of him well despite some challenges. Thanks again!
This was Kai's first Vacay with Marleen G.
Kai came back his normal self, which is unlike the other two vacays he has had in the past.
Marleen did a great job looking after our boy, she is a very loving host, who sincerely takes care. We are very happy with Marleen and would always consider her as our first option if we have to board Kai.
Thank you Marleen!

My puppies were so tired after the stay which is really good !
She was great to work with and my boys were happy and safe in her care. You never even need to give your little ones a second thought when you are away. You can be rest assured they are getting the best of care
Thanks for all your help with these 2!
Great!
Our pup loves Marlene! Great time again.
A long overdue review for a great host! We definitely felt like our pups were in good hands. Bonus: she sent us really cute pictures.
Phoebe just loves Marleen and I feel good getting daily photo text updates. Marleen is excellent with dogs - her care is much appreciated!
What to say about Marleen? My dogs didn't want to come back home. They loved her. She's the who will take care of them next time. I hardly recommend her.
Marleen was a wonderful sitter for our cairn terrier. Our little guy can be a bit high maintenance some days, and tends to get a bit of anxiety without us around. Marleen was amazing, she kept us in the loop the whole time, and was very patient with him. Skipper seemed very content with her and in her space. I would definitely recommend Marleen for your pet!

Marleen is absolutely amazing! Our pup can be pretty needy and she handled him with complete ease. We felt so comfortable leaving him with her and came home to find a very happy & content dog. We also loved all the pictures and updates she sent us of our pup while we were away. We look forward to having her look after Nanuq again!

My 2 dachshunds really enjoyed their time with Marlene. They had lots of fun adventures and she was excellent about sending me updates and pictures. It is always comforting to see that they have bonded with a caregiver. I would recommend her services.

Marleen is super patient and great with dogs! My Phoebe is a curious, high energy dog, and Marleen kept her happy during her stay! thanks Marleen!
Marleen was wonderful!

She was very easy to communicate with and quick to respond. Our little guy also tends to be a little anxious in new situations, but she made sure he was comfortable before I left. She sent us updates about how he was doing, so we felt re-assured that our pup was happy.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her!

Marleen is a great sitter. She is very quick to respond to inquiries and very accommodating to requests for updates about the pups. I left my two older dogs with Marleen for just over a week. They came back well rested and relaxed (no post boarding anxiety or exhaustion). I would use her services again.

Marleen is absolutely amazing to me and my little pup. I initially contacted her with hesitation but she quickly put my mind at ease and I was assured that Crosby would be in great hands. She is super accommodating when I have last minute travel plans and is always easy to get in contact and communicate with, and is sure to keeps you connected with your pup with pictures and regular updates.
Most importantly of all, my dog absolutely adores her! He usually gets anxiety when I leave him with someone, but when we get to Marleen's place he barely looks back to say bye and his tail goes into overdrive.
Marleen has a heart of pure gold and lots of love to give, I wouldn't trust anyone else with the job. Thanks again!!

Marleen was great! She kept me updated with pictures and texts as to how my dog's stay was going. Her apartment was filled with toys and treats which was my dog was quite happy about. I would recommend Marleen to others looking for a caring place for their dog(s) to stay.

We were looking for a last mintute sitter for Kixx for one night and Marleen was more than happy to look after our little monster! She kept us up to date with pics and text msgs throughout the night and he seemed to really like his stay at her place! We would definately use Marleen again in the future and suggest her for any friends and family looking for a responsible dog sitter!

This was my first time using Dogvacay and I am extremely pleased when I met Marleen as she was my first choice. I felt very comfortable and relieved to go on my trip, without any doubt when I dropped Crackers off. Thank you again Danielle
Marleen is awesome!!! She takes care of my puppy like it's her own. I was nervous leaving my pup with some else. Marleen put my worries to rest sending me a pic 5min later, of them playing like they've been friends all along.
