About Marlena

The Rocking Dog is closed in California but will reopen soon in Portland, Oregon.

I've been caring for dogs in my home since 1996. I have a fenced yard, a pool for the swimmers, and lots of pooch pillows inside and out for naps. Dogs are walked every day and depending how many charges I have, we may go to a nearby dog park for running and playing. I don't charge extra for giving medicine and my guests always get lots of love and good treats: cookies, real bones from the butcher, pig ears... whatever's in the pantry. I have two dogs, Lola, an Akita/Chow mix and Darla, a Husky/GSD mix.

Just minutes away from Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm, we offer a special extended day care with late pickup for amusement park or out of town visitors. This is a great alternative to boarding your pooch at a facility where pickup hours are limited or at Disneyland where your pooch is confined to a kennel and you are responsible for walking and feeding. There are no kennel facilities at Knott's.

Please note that holiday rates are slightly higher than those listed. Holidays include Memorial Day weekend (Thursday prior through Tuesday after), Independence Day week, Labor Day weekend (Thursday prior through Tuesday after), Thanksgiving weekend (Wednesday prior through Monday after), Christmas break (Friday prior to Christmas through the Sunday following January 1st). Book early to reserve your Spot's spot!

PLEASE NOTE: When you request a stay I immediately put a hold on the days you have requested pending any further information I may need. I don't care if you go with another sitter, but please, be courteous and let me know you won't be using my services so I can book another guest. Thank you.

Freja really enjoyed her stay with Marlena. If we lived in the area we would definitely go back, but we were just traveling through and needed dog care while we took our kids to the amusement parks.
Marlena is very thoughtful about the safety and well being of my dog. She allowed to him to become familiar with her home before introducing him to her dogs. She sent me text photos showing he was having a good time!
We're extremely pleased with Marlena! My family went to Knotts berry farm for the day, we're from San Diego and had nobody to leave our dog lily with. She approved our reservation the day before our trip and was very welcoming. She sent us a picture of our dog and let us know how she was doing, the piece of mind that our dog was ok is priceless. We will definitely be using her again for our trip to Disney land. Knowing our dog is cared for and having a great time playing is so much better than having her locked in a crate for hours.
