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.

Should our calendar appear booked, please reach out to us. It may be that some guests are leaving and some are arriving on a given day which makes us appear "full" when we really aren't. We do not want to miss an opportunity to care for your pup(s) again (we LOVE our repeat guests!).

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!!!

This was the first time I have left my Caper (jack russell terrier)! He is VERY active and he absolutely had a great time!! Marg was awesome and made me feel so comfortable. Her dogs are so sweet and played nicely with my intense little guy.
Marg sent me videos and updates throughout his stay and I felt so at-ease with the care they gave my special (to me) dog!
I will definitely book again and would recommend them to anyone!
Marge and Dave are so wonderful with my Ava. Ava is safe and happy at their home. Marge and Dave are kind and patient. They are quick to respond to me and our needs. I am so happy I found them. Thank you both.
I just love marg & Dave. They are so sweet and Lola absolutely adores them. We dropped her off this weekend and she got so excited when she saw Marg and completely ignored me when I tried to give her a hug goodbye! She has such a good time with them that she doesn't even care that we are leaving, and even though I don't like being ignored it is so nice to know that she is having a good time while we are gone. It really is a doggy vacay!
