About Mary Elizabeth

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Here at West Side Wags, your dog's safety, health, and happiness are our number 1 priority. I pride myself on tailoring my care to exceed your dog's basic needs, so that when you say to your pup, "You're going to West Side Wags!" that tail starts wagging because they know they're gonna have a good time! With 24 hour care, I take absolute delight in making sure your dog gets plenty of exercise (walks, runs, endless fetch...you tell me your dog's preference), both indoors and outside in a safely fenced-in backyard. Our dog, Bowie, is a lover at heart, and is highly socialized and happily welcomes any opportunity for some good company and play! Because he's been to dog parks nearly every day of his life, he's learned to adjust his play to the dogs he meets, and has never been aggressive. Here at West Side Wags, I'm happy to provide other services as well, such as a bath before pickup...which can be especially nice in the fall/winter months when I know Bowie tends to track in a little extra mud on the paw.

In addition to our main man, Bowie, we have two feline ladies in the house (Toast and Espen). Our cats mainly keep to themselves when there are non-resident dogs in the house. They will stay on the top two floors of the house while the dogs stay on the main level with us throughout the day. Doors between our main level and upper levels can separate your dog from our cats if they are not cat-friendly, so there is no need to worry about a chance encounter.

We do not accept dogs who are not neutered or spayed (with some exceptions). Additionally, we will not accept dogs who are not housebroken or puppy-pad trained (no exceptions). If your dog becomes aggressive with our dog, we will have to keep him separated from our dog in his own bedroom or the kitchen (with regular ongoing attention from one of us humans) until you can pick him up. The health and safety of your dog, our dog, and ourselves is our top priority.

Please note that our overnight fees cover 24 hours of care. If you drop your dog off at 1 pm on a Friday, we expect you to pick up by 1 pm the following day. If your pick-time is later than 24 hours, you will be charged for half-day daycare up to 4 hours and full day daycare past 4 hours.

My dog was spoiled on her vacay! Mary is flexible with drop off/pickups and has a very welcoming home, fenced yard, and dog of her own. She even texted me updates and pictures while I was away. I will definitely book with Mary again!
I could not feel better about a place to stay for Toivo!
I couldn't be more impressed with Mary. She was in daily communication with photos and notes, and her enthusiasm and professionalism engendered trust that Huck was in good hands. I had a relaxed vacation knowing my sweet dog was having the time of his life in a caring, safe environment. He and her dog Bowie played so hard, that he slept for a day after I picked him up! Mary sent him home with a bag of homemade Bowie dog treats and pictures from Huck's 'dog vacay'. I highly recommend her, and am grateful to have found this wonderful service.
