About Marg & Dave

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
The PAW’nd-erosa, a place for your pooch to stay and play
…where your doggie(s) can feel at home while hanging out in a quiet country setting with our family
…for a few hours, a day (or two or three or more), for a week (or two) or pretty much whatever you need!

Daycare and boarding for dogs only
Strongly prefer to meet first-time guests to ensure a good fit for all
All ages and most sizes welcome
Guests must be up-to-date on vaccinations
Dogs must be house-broken
Special TLC for Seniors
Every attempt made to meet any pet’s needs

From the moment we heard about DogVacay, we knew how we wanted to fill our time during retirement. We both have been dog owners all our lives and in our 39-year-marriage, our home has been “home away from home” for many four-legged friends.

• Fenced yard
• Pets allowed on furniture
• Great for all ages
• Smoke-free environment
• Air conditioned inside
• Guest kennels available (inside, next to our doggie’s kennels). For the safety of your dog(s), all dogs (including ours) will be kenneled if we must leave the house.

We have lived on The POND-erosa (a tad bit under three acres)--(5 miles) West of Loveland for 25+ years. No need to travel to town to the dog park: Our dogs have a large house and a huge, fully fenced, back yard to run and play (and the fence is high).

Currently we have three dogs who love having other friends to play with:
• Chewie, a male Norfolk Terrier mix, age 3-ish (a rescue adopted from ARR/Animal Rescue of the Rockies)
• Addy, the female Brittany Spaniel, age 8, who came to live with us because she would not stay in her yard in Denver
• Sprocket, our little female Yorkie-Poo mix, age 8, that we adopted from relatives that could no longer keep her

A couple of frequent visitors:
• Brooklyn, the sweetest 80-pound Pitbull mix we have met who thinks she is Aunt Maggie’s lap dog
• Max, our little “shiver dog” (a black Chihuahua) who loves watching TV in the evening “under” his blankie on Aunt Maggie’s lap

Our dogs are kennel-trained, and we prefer our guests to be also, so please bring your dog’s “home” (and their bed and/or blanket) when you visit. We have found that kennels provide a spot where dogs feel safe and can rest when they need quiet time (kennel doors are always left open unless we must leave for a bit). My husband is retired and I teach part-time so, most all the time, at least one of us is home.

We prefer to meet our guests prior to being a first-time boarder to ensure a good fit. Since we welcome boarders into every aspect of our lives, and want them to be “part of the family”, we want everyone to feel comfortable during their visit to The PAW’nd-erosa.

Marg & Dave are fabulous pet people! They enjoy any and all kinds of dogs, so caring and loving as if they were their own. They have sat with our dog, Buzz, in the past and I know they will do well in this new endeavor. They live in a quiet part of town with plenty of room in their backyard where the dogs won't feel cooped up! We highly recommend Marg & Dave!!!

Our 2 Schnauzers have never been out of the home. We always had dog sitters come to our house! We are so grateful to have found Marg & Dave! We recently moved so our home sitter option had evaporated. Plus, we didn't trust our "Boyz" in their new house. Thanks to DogVacay we found the perfect solution. We decided to do a couple daycare visits with Marg & Dave before we left for a week long trip. The Boyz love their new "camp" & Marg & Dave are the most wonderful doggy loving "camp counselors"! We're confident our Boyz will be in the most competent and love care with Marg & Dave when we leave on our trip!
Once again, thank you so much Margie and Dave! Our dogs thoroughly love staying with you as they go nuts the closer we get to your place. I love your attention to them, your home and especially your compassionate care of both dogs, the texts and pictures you send. Gives us such a warm feeling and a whole lot less stress knowing they are staying with you - far better than any other place they have stayed! Diane L.
Lola just had her second stay at the PAWNn'd-erosa and it was even better than the first, if that's possible. As soon as we pulled up to the house Lola started getting excited and ran right inside! She wasn't even sad when I left. It is such a relief to know that when I want to go have a fun day on the slopes, that Lola gets to have a fun day too :) Thanks Marg & Dave, we will see you next time!!
I am so happy I found Marg & Dave. Lola stayed at the PAW'nderosa this past weekend and had such a good time! They are so sweet and thoughtful, sending me pictures and videos of Lola playing with her new friends and keeping me updated on how she was doing. Lola hates to be alone and it was so nice to know she was being cared for so well and having such a good time. I am so happy to have found a home away from home for Lola when I have to be away from her. I would highly recommend Marg & Dave to any dog parents looking for a sitter; the PAW'nderosa is the perfect place for your dog to play while you're gone!
Thank you for taking such good care of Maverick again! He is so excited to come stay with you and acts like it's his second home! It makes it so much easier to leave him with someone, when we know he receives such excellent and loving care. Thank you again! And we'll see you soon!
They did a great job taking care of our little dog. I would fully recommend Marg and Dave.
Another great experience at the PAW'nd-erosa with Marg & Dave!
Our pups are excited to be at the Ponds. They know when we turn on to road to the house. Our terrier (terrorist) has been calmer around people and other dogs since spending time with Marg and Dave and their 3 dogs. We are very happy and secure in leaving the pups in their care.
Bentley loved his stay with Marg & Dave!!! They took care of him as he was one of their own. We will definitely book with them again. Amazing Hosts!!!
Margie and Dave were absolutely wonderful with our two dogs! I was worried about how they would do with other dogs but learned with the “Meet and Greet” they were just fine. I received periodic texts (my preference) from them to let me know how they were doing which I thought was a really nice touch. I know for sure they had a good time because our one dog whines every time we get in the car to a destination. In fact, he whines the entire time to a destination. But going to Margie and Dave’s to actually stay the night it was as if he knew and he didn’t make a sound on the way there. Instead he appeared quite relaxed. I had the same response from him driving home! Both our dogs went right to sleep when we got home, another indication of having a good time running around their yard with the other dogs. I also want to mention they were quite excited to get out of the car when we arrived (post Meet and Greet). They have a very large yard with a secure gate and plenty of space to run around and their house is very cozy. Margie and Dave are the best pet sitters we have ever had outside our home, they are so very caring and definitely love dogs. It’s wonderful not to worry about how your dogs are being treated outside your own house. I highly recommend their home as a safe and happy place to leave your dogs. I will definitely use them again, probably once a month to give the dogs a little safe and happy getaway.
Marg and Dave were wonderful with my Koko! She's 13 years old and had a stressful experience at a large kennel. Marg and Dave went out of their way to make sure she was not stressed, comfortable, and we'll loved! They also were very kind and patient with me too. I won't ever leave her with anyone else!
We felt very confident that our dogs would be well cared for after our initial meet and greet with Marg and Dave. They are attentive and observant as to each dogs' personality, and they treat them accordingly. We have had 2 days and an overnight and the dogs come home calm and laid back...not clinging or craving attention. A very positive sign that they were fine with their stay away. Marg and Dave are themselves calm and patient, even with over protective dog-owners
Marg & Dave were terrific, they mad my little dog quickly feel "right at home"! In addition, they sent frequent texts, pictures and videos, that were so reassuring to be able to see my Henry looking so content, and having so much fun. I am already making my next reservation with them! I would highly recommend them, (except if I did, they might not have room for Henry, the next time I need them! So, Ssssshhhhhhh...)
We left our miniature poddle, Windsor, for the first time since we got him. Marg and Dave were so great with him at our m&g that I felt totally comfortable leaving him for 2 nights. I would definitely use them again.
Oh My Gosh! My pup Ivan had the best time! Marg and Dave were so wonderful to work with. They kept Ivan (who is a very playful pup) very busy with there great dogs and gave him so much TLC, that I wasn't sure if he wanted to leave! We will be back for sure.
Thanks Marg and Dave, love Ivan.
Excellent five star service! This was the first time we left our Bianca at a daycare and Marg and Dave made sure she felt welcome and loved in their home. Marg and Dave are super nice and friendly. They provided us with updates with pictures throughout the day. Bianca was very happy at their house and she made friends with their 3 pups. Marg and Dave's house is very dog-friendly. They have a nice yard, patio and plenty of room in the house to rest and play. We highly recommend Marg and Dave.
From the moment we were greeted at the door by Dave, we felt at home and knew that our boy was going to love his stay with Dave and Marg. They are very welcoming and so relaxed and it's very apparent that they enjoy animals. They were very diligent and thorough in obtaining information about Jeter's personality and schedule, we could tell that they really cared about his welfare and wanted to ensure that it was going to be a good experience for him.

We really enjoyed and appreciated getting the updates/photo's/video's from Marg letting us know how Jeter was doing, eating, and sleeping. We could tell he was having a grand time and we never worried once about him.

Jeter came home tired, as if he had spent a few days at Disneyland, but we assured him he will definitely be visiting his new friends very soon.

Best DogVacay Ever!!

Marj and Dave treated our fur babies like their own family. We needed to make a last minute appt when the weather heated up and it was too warm to take our dogs with us for the day. Their big yard gave our dogs lots of room to run when they needed to go outside. They came home happy and tired. Marj even brushed them out before we picked them up. They were very responsible, kept us posted with updates and loved on our dogs from the minute we got there. This was our first time using dog vacay and we had a great e experience.
Marg and Dave were amazing! We all felt (the dogs included) like we were leaving them with family for a week. They have a huge yard and the dogs were able to play outside and run whenever they wanted.

Our golden doodle is afraid of other dogs. Marg spent time introducing her to the other dogs. Our miniature poodle is very sensitive and wouldn't eat for two days. Marg and Dave gave him lots of love and he came around. I know for a fact a regular kennel would not be able to give them so much attention.

We got daily updates and photos. Marg and Dave are great people and we will definetly take our dogs again. We'll never feel nervous about leaving them home again!

Marg, Dave, and their dogs were very friendly; our dog was part of the family in no time. Marg sent updates, photos and videos daily, so we knew he was doing well. We'll definitely be back!
Best stay ever. Maverick wasn't stressed at all. He was happy at Dave and Margie's. They gave him lots of love and affection. We could tell he was exercised and played with. We highly recommend this home for dog didn't feel like boarding him in a kennel. They took excellent care of him and sent us lots of pictures of him while we were gone!
