About Mari

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Mari. I love dogs all different shapes and sizes. Dogs are my kryptonite. Taking care of your fur babies helps me not become a dog hoarder! In the past I have had a hard time finding someone I trust to look after my dogs when I left. The cost of kennels can sometimes be really expensive. I hope that providing these services can alleviate some of the stress for you while you travel or work. I like walking my dogs, going to dog parks, playing games with my dogs, and I like to brush dogs so they have a nice clean coat. I don't mind pets on my furniture. I love to see a dog comfortably laying on a couch just as you would.

For the overnight stays I would like to keep it down to possibly just the weekends so your pet never has to be alone. If you must schedule during the week please ask before hand as I will have to work from 7am-3:30pm. Your pet would be fed and walked before I left for work and walked once I come home.

I would like to do walks during the week and on weekends if I am not boarding any other pets.

Please let me know in advance about feeding schedule, walk schedule, any behaviors (IF YOUR PET IS PREY DRIVEN PLEASE DO NOT SCHEDULE) or any medications your pet may need.

Please bring your own food, food bowls, medications, and if your pets uses a kennel that as well.

I like to do pet meet ups before the actual stays to make sure your pet is as safe as can be in my home. I have three dogs myself and safety is paramount!

I do have my own Vet who I can use in an emergency or please provide me with your local vets name and number.

My Girl is a bit fearful, but walked right into Mari's home, she is very comfortable there. I am very thankful to Mari and her family.
So happy with how well Mari cared for our dog!
She made sure our dog was comfortable with the other dogs, took her for walks and gave her attention, and sent frequent updates to us to let us know how our dog was doing.
I am very happy with how well the stay went, highly recommended!

I felt at ease from the moment we met, I new my babies were going to be in good hands. And I was right.
Mari and her family were fantastic. I will never use a kennel again. I needed an aforable stay for my bullmastiff mix for 12 days and I couldn't be happier. Knowing he was with a loving family in a great home with 3 other dogs to play with - I think my dog thought he was truly on vacation! Mari is now my go-to and I would recommend it to anyone.

I am so grateful to have found Mari and her family! My dog has severe anxiety and after vacation every time, he returns with about 50 mats he chewed in his fur from nerves. I think my little guy was sad to leave Mari's house because he had so much fun. When I picked him up he looked at me like 'hey, what's up?' and kept hanging out. When I took him home he was so calm and relaxed. She even let him stay in their bed. My heart melts knowing they took such good care of him. It makes me want to bring him there for daycare just so he can have that much fun again. Thank you so much!

She was awesome, very polite and considerate to any and all special requests. Kept me informed about my pet the entire time. I will most certainly use her again for my next vacation.
Mari and her family were great with my husky Pharoah! He really enjoyed himself and got to make a few new friends. She made sure I was comfortable with leaving him there and that he was comfortable as well. She was very accommodating even with last minute changes from me. I've never felt more at ease when boarding Pharoah as I did leaving him with Mari, I highly recommend her and we will definitely use her services again!
