About Mary and Rick

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have 15 years of experience with all breeds, ages and sizes of dogs! We have taken care of Boxers, Pit mixes, Rottweilers, Labs, Japanese Chins, Chihuahuas, Yorkies, Danes, the whole gamut! A Dogmother of a diabetic Pomsky for 13 1/2 years has given me the training to administer injections safely and effectively. Having recently lost my 15 year old Pom to old age, I am missing that canine energy in the home and would treat your furbabies with the utmost love and attention! Having raised special needs dogs, we have no problem going the extra mile to meet their medical needs and give them the comfort they need. Pets will enjoy an air-conditioned, non-smoking home. No longer have pets of my own so yours will be the star at our house! Just a few block walk down a quiet residential street to Madison Park (Lakewood) or the 100% fenced in backyard can serve as the playground! If you have a laid back dog, we can just chill in the AC. We will customize their stay to your needs!

Mary was great and Rudy loved her – – especially when she sang Stevie wonder to him!
Mary and Rick are seriously the best! I was so hesitant to leave my guy since he takes a while to warm up to others and by the end of the nigh he was sleeping in THEIR bed! They sent pictures to keep me updated and are super flexible. I will be forever using their services for Mr. Mojo!
My dog was very well cared for and I cannot thank Rick and Mary enough for their expert and hospitable service.
Super amazing hosts who truly care about the pups they watch. Thanks so much!
Mary and Rick's flexibility was greatly appreciated when our pup stayed with them over the holiday weekend.
Simply wonderful!
I always feel much better knowing my furball is in good hands. Thanks!
Thanks for the accommodating pickup and drop off times!
Thanks a ton for being so awesome!
Mary & Rick were great hosts & very flexible with drop off and pick ups. I got photo updates and our dog Pepper was happy & comfortable with them. Thank you guys!
Mary and Rick were amazing with our Siberian Husky Kylo. They treated him like he was part of their family. They even gave him a bath before we picked him up, which was a total surprise and much appreciated! They are very experienced with dogs and love each and every one of them. Kylo had a great time with them!
Mary and Rick were fabulous. Mary had blankets and toys set out for Penny when we arrived at her house to make sure she felt comfortable. I really felt like Penny was going on vacation with someone that loved her lol. She also sent regular photos and messages to keep me updated. I really can't say enough about how great this experience was for us.
Mary & Rick were awesome with my sweet BIG Great Dane!! It was his very first time being away from us and did very well! Mary & Rick kept me informed about him and told me he had some anxiety and eating problems but he eventually got better. They sent pictures of him too! Highly recommend!!
Mary & Rick watched my extra large dog who is very attached to me and pretty high strung. They were great with him and he seemed happy to be there when I picked him up.
Mary was the greatest!! Takes care of your dog likes it's her own. Next time we need a sitter for our dogs we will be contacting Mary.
Mary and Rick were very friendly and flexible. More importantly, they took great care of my Pom, Poppy. I would absolute recommend them.
Mary was great! Our pup, Leila, seemed very happy and content when we picked her up. Leila was also clean when we got her - how nice!
Mary was wonderful! She was flexible and understanding - very easy to work with! Bella was easy and relaxed when she came home, which is a great relief since she is usually an anxious, nervous dog when it comes to change! Above all though, Mary went the extra long mile, because Bella herself and her belongings came home clean and fresh! I think Mary washed Bella and her belongings (including an old, "well used" doggy blanket!!)!! Bella was also spoiled rotten with healthy looking doggy treats and new toys! Thank you so much Mary!!
Mary is a super amazing host! My somewhat extra needy dog had an incredibly relaxing, stress free, and enjoyable time during his stay.

She was flexible with her schedule and very timely with her responses. I couldn't have been happier or more relieved to have her watching over my pooch while I was away.

Thanks so much!
