About Marah

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I always wanted a cat as a kid. Until one night my mom asked me if I wanted a dog but not just any dog a tiny little Poodle. The thought of my very own dog was enough excitement for me to stay up all night waiting for my dad to come home from night shift to ask if I could really have this Poodle of my very own. Luckily for me he said yes and my love affair with Poodles began. I have had a Poodle of my own since the age of 8, while I have found loves in other breeds and mixes my heart has always skipped a beat when I see a Poodle!

My name is Marah! I am a local Roanoke native, I am married to the best man in the whole world (Jordan) and we live in NW Roanoke close to Salem! I have three rescued babies (Pippa and Jade, our dogs and Frances our sweet Kitty) that are super friendly and look forward to sharing their days with your babies! My husband works rotating shifts so sometimes he is home all day with me and other times he is working! Our schedule works out great to allow us to never have to leave our dogs alone for more than an hour or two tops! We look forward to meeting you and your babies and welcoming them into our home!

You will never find a couple more open to pets and animals!

Marah was amazing! I only adopted my dog two months ago and had never left him overnight. She was so great and accommodating and always quick to respond to messages. I was late to pick up and she was perfectly fine with it saying that pickup times were flexible. I would recommend her 100%. I've already started telling friends about her.

I contacted Marah very last minute to watch my dogs for me for the weekend and she responded almost instantly. When i took my dogs over for a quick meet and greet they immediately made friends with the other dogs there and Marah treated them like they were her own. I received picture and text updates about how they were doing daily. They got to play with other dogs at her house and at the dog park over the weekend which I'm sure they loved. When i picked then up on Sunday they were both thoroughly exhausted. I will definitely be bringing them back

My hyperactive dog came home very satisfied and tired after a day full of play!
Marah is friendly and kind and you can tell she cares for the animals she watches. I was very comfortable leaving our dog with her for the weekend. It also helped to have the sweetest welcoming committee ever - Jade, her dachshund. Thanks for a worry free weekend!

Nell had a ball last weekend and has made new friends she is missing already! Thank you and Nell will see you again soon. Molly and Ben
Marah is amazing. I'm a very protective dog owner. My dog is my world. I felt completely safe and comfortable with my 15 year old senior who is blind and has kidney disease in her hands. I felt like he was with the best person possible. I interviewed 5 people but when I met Marah I knew Harley would be loved like I love him. She babied him the same as I would. I was across the country and could enjoy my trip because I knew he was being loved. I think he would rather stay with Marah now he loves her and her husband. They are the best. So calm and they treat the dogs like kids not like dogs and that's important to me. I would highly recommend her and use her again and again

I also had her watch my ginger. Ginger is one wild pup but she came home worn out and tired and this morning wanted to go back to Marah again. She and Harley love it here. I'll always use Marah for my boarding and daycare from now on.

Takes amazing care of my puppy! He always comes home so happy, and loves it there with the other dogs!
I was very happy with my dog, Max, stay at Marah's. He was worn out when I brought him home, which is a good sign. Marah is friendly and responds promptly. Overall I would recommend her to watch your pet ☺
First time user of dog vacay and Marah was great at sending updates & pics! Location was great for easy access from interstate.
Marah was great. She took Jake to the park multiple times and he seemed to have a great time from pics. He came home worn out! She was also very responsive and easy to work with.
Marah was awesome and so sweet! We sent her a request super late notice and she accepted right away! She was so flexible with us and our puppy had a GREAT time! He's still tired from a full day of play!
