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! Thanks to Dog Vacay we had the opportunity to host a Bernese Mountain Dog and we fell in love with the breed! So we now have Wyatt our big goofy Bernese that is the ultimate love bug! 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... that being said I would like to note. I reserve the right to decline bookings. If I feel like you are shady or your dog makes me or my dogs uncomfortable I will not book with you. People that email me are strangers. I don't know anything about you other than the fact you emailed me with basic information (which may or may not be true) about yourself and your pet. I am inviting you, a stranger, into my home zone. This creates a possible threat to the safety of my dogs and my family. People who intend to do those type of things don't typically approach you aggressively or have a 'criminal look', they usually come with a persuasive story, to try to make you 'feel' like they are a safe person so you let your guard down. I will protect my home and my family no matter what. If I have not booked with you before and do not know you I will not meet you in my home if my husband isn't there. Don't ask to come to my home at strange hours or at times I have said "No" to. Also, I am not available for meet and greets and extended drop offs during the day. I do work from home but have meetings, deadlines, and conference calls to attend to along with my animals and the ones I host.

Lastly, I love Siberian Huskies. Many people question the reason I don't keep them the answer is simple. I own a cat a two small dogs. Siberian Huskies are natural predators and I have hosted mixed breeds in the past that have attacked my cat and my smaller more timid dog. Two of my three pups are rescues that suffered abuse. I will not allow them to be attacked in their own home. I am sorry if I offend you please know that I don't host animals just for profit. I host animals because I am a genuine animal lover my animals are the only babies I have and I will protect them.

I was very pleased with my pup's stay with Marah. She was great to communicate with and flexible with my and my oup's needs. I would whole heartedly recommend her and will definitely call on her again in the future.
Marah was so flexible with our meet and great and pick up and drop off times. Casey seemed to have a fun time playing with her dogs. She also cared for him as if he were her own.
My dogs came back very happy!
