About Marlize

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Treat your dog to a fun and relaxing country vacation on 4 acres while you're away! I am home most of the day! Your pup will have plenty of room to run and play within a one-acre 6ft high secured fenced yard at my home just 10 min south ( 7 miles )outside of Lexington at exit 97 off I75. Ask about free pick up and drop off services. Let your dog go back to nature in this serene setting while breathing fresh country air. At my property your dog can run, play, explore and relax on my securely 6ft high fenced "doggie paradise" assuring enough physical activity taking away excess energy, boredom, frustration and unwanted behavior. I offer dog boarding, doggy daycare, check-in service, walks, and shuttle service. Do you have a dog who loves to go on long runs? I can handle that too! Your dog will have a great time, guaranteed!! Originally from South Africa, and raised on my family's farm, I had the unique experience of growing up caring for a wide variety of animals including: dogs, rabbits, cats, cows, sheep, and horses. After graduating from Tswane University of Technology with a degree in Equine Science I moved to the US and have proudly called Lexington my home since 2002. I started my career as a veterinary technician at one of the premier equine hospitals in the world and have been taking care of sick horses for 13 years. I have been pet sitting for many friends and co workers and enjoy putting my knowledge and skills to use by caring for animals both there and in my pet-sitting business.

Marlize is amazing! Her property is perfect for dogs. My dog had a blast and came home happy and tired. Marlize sent daily photo updates and even a few videos. We will definitely use her again!
Marlize took great care of my dog. She clearly loves animals and the dogs clearly love her as well. I received text updates and photos often. I had peace of mind and my dog was happy ! Will def be back.
Another great stay! First I loved how quickly Marlize responds to communications. It was easy to make arrangements and coordinate drop off and pick up and she kept us up to date with photos during the stay. She has an amazing space and home set up for dogs. Todo seemed to immediately feel comfortable in Marlize's yard. Marlize cares for multiple dogs at some times which I worried would be a problem for my shy dog but I actually think it was good for her. I guess the dogs have space so they can interact normally. Marlize's house is a little tricky to get to the first time but use google maps or gps because it is worth it. It is a quick pleasant drive from Lexington. We will be back.
