About Mary

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I have been a dog owner for most of my life and currently have a sweet 11 year old labradoodle.
My house is a short walk away from two parks where dogs can play in the grass and I also take daily walks in Tilden Park.
The yard is fully fenced and easily accessible. Often I just leave the door open and the dogs can go in and out as they please.
I work at home so I will be with your dog for most of the day.
Daily texts and photos are happily provided.
I know how hard it can be to leave your beloved companion when you go away and will make sure to provide reassurance, comfort and lots of distraction.
We'll have fun!

Mary's house is located in the Berkeley Hills. Her laberdoodle Charlotte greets everyone at their deck gate and is very friendly.

The house is comfortable and spacious with couches and dog beds available. Her back yard is large with plenty of room for dogs to explore and enjoy being outside.

Mary spends her day at home, so a guest dog will have company most of the time. She has experience with medium to large breeds as well. She loves dogs very much and looks forward to being a host to more guest dogs!
Mary was great. Libby had a great time with her and was very well taken care of. Would definitely ask Mary to look after Libby again.
We traveled from Roseburg Oregon to Berkeley Ca in our Van RV to visit our son and daughter-in-law. We wanted to bring our dog with us, because we were taking 4-5 days to travel back by way of the coast and wanted him along. Mary was kind to agree to take in Kenai while we were in Berkeley without a meet and greet since we did not live there and could not do so prior to our arrival. As is usual with DogVacay sitters Mary knew the dynamics of multiple dogs and took good care of Kenai. The only difficulty Kenai had was getting used to going to the bathroom on concrete, (which is the only ground cover available). Mary ended up needing to take him to a spot outside of her yard. This could be an issue with other dogs as well. Mary's house is high in the Berkeley hills and was a little tricky with our 19' van but achievable. When we picked Kenai up we used our son's car instead.
Mary was exceptionally responsive, caring and professional. My dog clearly enjoyed his stay with her. Highly recommended.
Mary clearly loves dogs and has a lot of experience with them, she took great care of my senior pup and my dog was happy and relaxed when I picked her up. Will definitely re-book!
Love Mary!
Mary was very friendly and accommodating. She sent a photo and update during our (short) trip. She has a nice big fenced lot and just keeps a couple dogs at a time.
Mary Reed has a very cool house with a huge deck and allows her dog guests to wander in and out all day. There's so much play area! My dog Brodie has stayed with Mary Reed several times and always enjoys his time with her. I highly recommend!
This was a very successful boarding experience for both Hope and me. Hope has only been with me for a few months and this was the first time she's been away from me. Mary took incredibly good care of her, sent me great pictures of Hope frolicking in the water and also happily sacked out on the couch!!
Thank you, Mary, we'll see you soon again!
Brodie had a great day with Mary Reed. Her home is so dog friendly with lots of outside space, (I'd like to live there). Mary Reed was quick to reply to my questions and reservation request. Brodie will certainly be back for another visit. Highly recommend!
Mary is a true dog person. Our young dog was well taken care of by Mary.
Thank you for the photos Mary R. I could see that the boys had a great time at your place. They came home happily tired.
Mary has a lovely home in the Berkeley Hills with a sweet older Labradoodle and Charlie had a lot of fun running around the yard! Everything went smoothly and Charlie seemed happy upon my return.
Mary took great care of our dog Simha. Mary updated us with pictures and we had a peace of mind knowing our dog is in good care.
Good experience, Mary is calm and thoughtful. I have 2 golden doodles who can be a handful, and Mary was more than capable of caring for my guys. She stayed in touch, sent pictures of the dogs settled in at her house. We look forward to using her again, and recommend her to others. Oh, and the outdoor space is perfect and secure.
Mary was great! She took wonderful care of our puppy and her older sister. They were exhausted when we picked them from all the great walks and adventures that they went on. We will definitely board with Mary again!
Mary was kind and welcoming - very flexible and responsive to our schedule in terms of drop off and pick up, and warm and caring with our dog. We will definitely be leaving Maizy with her again! Thanks Mary!!
