About Mary

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I never met a dog I didn't love. I care for them like I would care for kids; with kindness and respect, and we have fun! I live in a gated community with lots of miles of safe sidewalks and a very nice dog park with a fresh-water drinking fountain at your dog's level. I have had 4 Labs, 1 Chesapeake, 1 Weimaraner, and a German Shepherd. Yes, I like big dogs, but my big Lab who lives with me now has a "bestie" that is a "Westie". They play together everyday in the park.
In addition to overnight boarding I'd be happy to keep your pup entertained while you are away for the day.

she was wonderful with our dog Layla. she updated me on how she was doing. very please will have her sit again for us. thank you so much
We were so pleased to find Mary. Our lab Riley is a bit quirky and finding the right home and sitter is very important to us. We instantly loved Mary and it was the perfect situation - daily walks, a dog park closely, great location and wonderful care. Thanks so much Mary - I could tell Riley missed you (and her nightly treats) !!!!
Max loves to visit with Mary! We feel he is loved well taken care of.
Sassy always has a fun time with Mary and her dog Boh.
A big thanks to Mary for taking care of Spicy. She was very supportive and attentive to his needs. Definitely a great option for owners to utilize.
Mary is so great keeping me up-to-date on what and how Sassy is doing and sharing pictures of her. Sassycomes home spoiled and happy from her stay with Mary and her dog Boh. So glad we found Mary, would not think of leaving Sassy with anyone else.
Mary was wonderful with Max! He loved his time with her and Bo! We will return!
My husband and I are new to the area and needed someone to watch our furbaby. We found Mary on DogVacay and I have to say that she lived up to all of the great reviews that she has received. Mary met us for a meet and great and was very friendly and made our dog feel right at home. She made the drop off and pick up easy. My furbaby was relaxed happy when I picked her up so I know that she felt comfortable and had a good time with Mary. Mary treated my dog like one of her own pets and showered her with love. She sent us pictures throughout her stay to show us how she was doing. After having my furbaby back home I have noticed that she is better behaved and has also improved significantly on her social behaviors with other dogs. We will most definitely will use Mary again when we need someone to watch our furbaby. We affectionately refer to Mary as "Grandma" - because having our furbaby stay with Mary is just like a visit at Grandma's house.
This was the first time I had ever left my dog, Macy, and I could not have been happier with the care she got with Mary. Everyday while I was away, Mary sent me pictures of Macy playing with all her new friends at the neighborhood dog park, and it really made me feel at ease leaving her for such a long time. Everyone in Mary's neighborhood (including the security guard at the gate) was friendly, warm and welcomed Macy with open arms. I would give Mary more than 5 stars if I could. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to treat their dog like royalty while away.
Sassy had a great time at Mary's, and Mary sent several pictures during the visit, including one of Sassy sleeping on Mary's bed. Already discussed with Mary Sassy's next two visits in for October and November to make sure Mary was going to be around, will book both of them as soon as dates are firm.
Sir Winston enjoyed his week long visit with Mary. She took great care of him and I never had a worry while he was in her care! We will definitely use her in the future.
Sassy always has a wonderful time with Mary and her dog Bo, Mary spoils her and Sassy gets not only to play with Bo but with other dogs in the neighborhood at the dog park that Mary takes her to, and gets to ride in a golf cart. Highly recommend Mary.
Mary gave us the peace of mind we needed knowing our dog was in great hands, would be safe and well taken care of.
Jax is a 5 month old Doberman and is very high energy. Mary took him for daily walks and trips to the dog park which is exactly what he needed. We received pictures of his activities showing us he was in dog heaven. He even got to sleep on her bed at night. OMG he doesn't even do that at home. Mary was very prompt with her communications so making the reservation was a breeze. Jax came home a little tired from all the fun but overall was very relaxed,sort of like he was only gone for an hour. Two thumbs up for Mary and we will use her in the future.
This is the second time Sassy has stayed with Mary and she is always happy and well cared for, even spoiled, Mary takes such good car of her and Sassy enjoys playing with Boh and met a new friend Jackson on this visit. May sent me a couple of pictures including one of the three dogs chilling together.
If I could give her more stars I would! Mary was wonderful with my dog and I felt much more comfortable with him there. She had a lovely home and was incredibly sweet. My dog was so happy when we got him. We are definitely going to use Mary again!
We were apprehensive at first, never having left our puppy girl at someone else's house. But after meeting Mary and her warm and friendly charm, we knew Shelby would be in good hands. And she was,.....Mary kept us updated with text messages and pictures which was so nice. We saw that our pup had relaxed easily into her new surroundings.
We stopped worrying and enjoyed our time away!
Sassy enjoyed her time with Mary and Boh (Mary's dog). Mary was very good about letting me know what was happening and accommodating our schedule. I would not hesitate to leave Sassy with Mary again.
My dog Penny spent a long weekend with Mary, and she is wonderful! Penny seemed to feel comfortable there right away. Mary was very accomadating and flexible. I highly recommend her.
