About Marlo

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello there!
10 Min drive to Bob Hope Airport w/o getting on the freeway!

I live in an happy, large, air conditioned NoHo apartment (open floor plan) and would love to watch over your loved one(s). My building is very pet friendly! I work mostly as a songwriter for other artists, so I have tons of free time/work from home to take excellent care of your pets. Growing up, I had a Westie who lived to be 16 years old and I miss her dearly. I do not have a backyard, but I love walking and can take your little one(s) out for many walks a day and visits to the park (North Hollywood, pictured above). Sometimes I like to go hiking at Griffith Park; let me know if your pooch is up for the journey :)

I do have one small song canary, he is quiet except when he sings in the morning. His cage is up high, but if your dogs are vicious towards birds we probably are not a good fit.

I am trained in dog CPR and work very well with aggressive dogs adjusting to new lifestyles!
If your dog cannot be left unattended, they must be okay to go in the car, or you will need to be willing to pay extra. If your dog is a puppy, I will charge extra, because they are a lot of extra work and make messes. :)

Please do your best to find someone in your area; if I am in a 12 mile radius of you AWESOME, but if not, please understand that I will need to charge extra for driving long distances as I do have to come back and forth a lot.

If your schedule causes you to need to pick up your dog after 6PM, you will need to pay a $15 day rate (flexible).
If you are a previous client who has worked with me prior to October 1st, you are grandfathered in to the old prices/policies.

Marlo lives in a bright and tidy loft in the dog-friendly NoHo Arts District, just blocks away from N Hollywood Park and in close proximity to Burbank Airport for easy doggy drop off when you travel.

She has experience petsitting dogs of all sizes for family and friends, and she also grew up with a Sheltie and a Westie. As her pups aged, she learned first-hand how to best care for older dogs with limited mobility, loss of sight, and all the problems that come along with getting old. On top of that, Marlo is certified in pet CPR.

Although she has an adorable little canary, she doesn’t currently have her own dog, so your pup will be the lucky recipient of her undivided love and attention.
We were very happy with Marlo from the meet and greet, dropping off our puppy Luca and picking him up. We got pictures from Marlo every other which kept us at ease. I would highly recommend her to take care of your pets.
Marlo is great! She was friendly, accommodating, and so sweet to our dog. We loved seeing the pictures she sent us over our trip, and when our flight back was delayed, she was understanding, and kind enough to arrange a drop off. She's exactly who you would want looking after your dog, and we will be sure to use her again!
Marlo did a great job with June especially on walks when June sometimes does not get along with other dogs.
Easy drop off and pickup! Bandit had a great time :D
Marlo is a fantastic sitter. I have requested her assistance on multiple occasions. She is very accommodating making my time away a lot less stressful.
Another wonderful stay with Marlo! Duncan always has a great time and we have peace of mind knowing he's in good hands.
Marlo B is a treasure. Calmed my fears by facilitating a meet and greet a couple days before my trip. Took great care of my dog. And when my return train was delayed, she even drove the dog to my home after I missed the pick-up time. Cannot say enough nice things about this DogVacay experience with Marlo B.
Marlo is fabulous and is my go to sitter to watch my pups. She is dog loving, dog savvy, and truly cares about my dogs as if they were her own!
Marlo was amazing! I knew she was the perfect person for the job when I introduced my pitbull to her... they connected right away. While I was gone, Marlo sent me pics of my dog; I was rest assured that everything was ok. I highly recommend Marlo for her professionalism, and her incredible demeanor with animals!
Another great experience with Marlo! We are put at ease every time we travel knowing that Duncan is in such good hands. Thanks again!
Marlo is an incredible friend to my dog, Jupiter. She treats her like a member of her own family. She is always in communication when I'm away and very sensitive to Jupiter's unique needs. We love Marlo! 5 stars!!!!
My dogs love Marlo, even my crazy little boy. She approaches them with love and confidence, and they took to her immediately. I recently had an accident where I injured my right hand, but since my nose worked just fine, I was sad I couldn't give my girl a much needed bath. I messaged Marlo asking if she could bathe her for me and within minutes, she was outside my door. She came back shiny and fabulous. My male
couldn't stop sniffing her! Marlo makes my life (and recovery) easier.
Marlo was wonderful once again with our dog, Duncan. It gives us such piece of mind to know he is in good hands when we travel. Thanks again, Marlo! Until next time!
Marlo was great! She sent us pictures throughout the weekend. It was great to see Sansa was in good hands. We'll definitely be using her again!
Marlo was so great with our two pups! loved the picture updates (even though it made me a tad jealous they were having such a great time without me :P) Definitely will be a repeat customer :)
We've only had Duncan for 6 weeks and had to go out of town for the night... it was nerve-wracking to think about leaving our dog, especially since he's a rescue and is just finally coming round on us and getting used to our routines. Marlo to the rescue! Even with every "interesting" detail I shared: he barks at other dogs, is skittish with noise, may not eat when he's anxious, can be very stubborn... Marlo took it all in stride and seemed confident and prepared to care for our dog and all of his oddities. Once I saw how happy Duncan was in the pictures Marlo sent us, I knew he was in excellent hands. We will use Marlo again (and again, and again!) whenever we have to travel without Duncan. It is a weight off of our shoulders to know he will be safe and well cared for. Thanks for all of your help and TLC!
Marlo was a pleasure and my puppy/Tesla clearly loved her too! Not only did she send me pictures + videos almost on a daily basis, she made sure Tesla was well fed and walked. Thanks!
Marlo is awesome, thank you for taking such good care of Oliver.
Another great weekend with Marlo! She is wonderful with Gizmo and makes me feel like I don't have to worry about anything when I am out of town. Thank you Marlo!!
Marlo was amazing, once again! She keeps me updated on what is going on, sends pictures, and is so wonderful at keeping my dog safe! Thank you, Marlo!!
Very kind and accommodating.
My Little Man Carlos has never spent one night away from me in eight years. He is also a rescue and has separation issues. I was a bit apprehensive about leaving him with anyone. However, Marlo put me to ease instantly. I will never send Carlos to anyone else. She sent pictures of him through out his stay and he came home a very happy pup.
Marlo, is amazing!
Marlo was great! She was very accommodating and took such great care of Fiona! We will definitely be hanging out with Marlo again!
Marlo did an amazing job! This was my first time using DogVacay and I took a last minute gamble as I had to find someone to watch my dogs due to my Mom's injured knees and I was boarding a plan to go overeas. Marlo quickly responded, made herself available at the moments notice which was amazing since it was the day after Thanksgiving. She showed up promptly every day (3x) to walk my dogs, managed my two dogs extremely well especially my problem dog who can bark/be aggressive in walks and sent me photos on Whatsapp of them often. My mom was extremely impressed and I look forward to working with Marlo in the future!
Marlo is sweet & has a kind, organic spirit that made her the perfect fit to watch my baby. I felt at ease knowing my baby was in great care. I will definitely use her again!
Marlo did such a great job watching my little guy while I went out of town! She send daily picture text updates and I could tell my dog was comfortable and having so much fun! She also went out of her way to accomodate me for a last minute meet & greet the evening before I left. Would definitely recommend her services.
Marlo was wonderful! She was so thorough and attentive to our little Ginger. We trust her completely and will definitely book her for all our future dog-sitting needs. Thanks, Marlo!
We are so excited to have found someone to watch our Bulldog, Poppy! Marlo sent us pictures of Poppy daily and sent us text updates which was awesome too. We will definitely be using Marlo's services again!
This is the first time I've had someone other than family stay at my house and watch my dogs.
I was nervous about the whole process. Marlo eased my fears, she was easy to communicate with, responded quickly, and seemed to care about them the way I do. She adapted to the routine and was professional and conscientious. I am happy to recommend her.
Marlo was pawesome! She took great care of my Suki when I was out of town for almost a week. I can tell that because Suki was very attached to her when I went to pick her up.
She provided periodic updates and show great interest in trying to make the stay comfortable for Suki. Additionally, I really appreciated her going out of her way to meet-and-greet with me on short notice and even offered to pick Suki up due to my early schedule the next day.
Will definitely make reservations with Marlo again for my future trips.
Thanks Marlo
We had a great experience leaving Poppy with Marlo for the weekend! She was so sweet. We love that she sent us pictures of her every day and updates on how she was doing. We will definitely be using her again!
Marlo was amazing! She sent me a lot of really great pictures of Gizmo, and kept me updated on how he was doing. She took him for walks and treated him so well. I would 100% leave my pug with her again. Thank you so much, Marlo!!!
