Description:

We are located in Beaver county close to the airport and have a beautiful 2 1/2 acre yard with plenty of room for your loved one to roam. Our family has always enjoyed owning dogs from Yorkies to Dobermans and would love the opportunity to care for your canine companion. Our own Yorkie was stressed to left at home each day as we went to work. We were able to find her loving lap to take her many naps on until we returned home from work each night. We focus our care by only providing services to one owner/family at a time.
With children around to play with, your companion will receive lots of attention including a daily walk, (the length depends on your pets preference) and brushing if your companion enjoys it. Along with our children we also share our home with a small sized Doberman. If a comfortable lap is all that is needed for a long afternoon nap that is also available. Pampering your pet at your place or ours.

About Marcella S.:

Having been pet parents for over 20 years, we understand each pet is special and unique in his or her own special way.Our own Yorkie was very stressed when left while we were working. We were able to find a "loving lap" for her to sit on until we returned home each night. By providing professional yet personal care in your home or ours, we can help relieve the anxiety of seperation while you are away. As a responsible pet owner you are looking for someone to provide the same level of care that you give to your canine companion everyday. If you would like we offer a daily email report to give you that extra reassurance in our services. We offer free no obligation consultation and look forward to meeting you to discuss how we can care for your special one. Pampering your pet at your place or ours.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

My husband and I were both raised with dogs and have personally owned dogs for over 20 years. Our peers often turn to us to sit for their pets because they know we can't refuse a wagging tail! Our Yorkie was our personal companion and first "kid" who had seperation anxiety when left alone. Since losing our Boxer last year to cancer, we are experienced with and keenly aware of dogs with special and medical needs.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

How does your dog adjust to strangers? Adults and kids differ?
Is your dog an off leash or leash trained dog.
We have no breed preferences but require a meet and greet to ensure that all parties involved, the people and pets, are comfortable with the arrangements before booking a reservation.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes - 10 minutes from Five Points Vet hospital

Are you comfortable administering medication?

yes

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

We meet with each prospective client to discuss your needs and what we can do for you. Each client and dog is different and comes with their own habits, needs and requests. We tailor our services to meet your needs and therefore don't have predefined time periods to spend with your dog.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

We have over 2 acres of level property where your dog is free to run and roam, play fetch, etc if you so choose. We also have a 27 X 18 fenced area for smaller dogs or those who just like to hang out outside for a while.

Where will my dog sleep?

Sleeping arrangements are up to the client. Owners usually bring their dog's bedding, i.e. bed, blanket, crate, etc. We have furniture covers for our own dog as well as for guests who are use to sleeping on furniture.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

Depending on the dog, we either walk your dog around our yard or we can walk them on our quiet country road.

Tom and Marcie are exactly as described in their profile and reviews. A beautiful family who were relaxed and willing to meet any of our needs. This was our first experience with a home sitter vs. a kennel and we will never go back to a kennel. We were able to drop off and pick up on our schedule, we received updates throughout the stay and our dog came back to us happy and healthy. We hope to use them again in the future and highly recommend their services. (Collapse)

Marcy, Tom and family are simply amazing! We are confident that they treat our pups like a member of their family while we are away. We know that they are spoiled and loved the whole time and never have to worry for one second. Marcy and Tom supply us with daily updates and cute pictures of the fur babies. We wouldn't want to leave them with anyone or anyplace other than with Marcy and Tom. They have our eternal vote for best in the Burgh! Thanks so much for everything :) (Collapse)

We went on vacation for 10 nights...which can be a long time to be away for anyone, but we received daily pictures and updates to keep us connected :) We and our dog felt at ease, and on top of being happy to be home, we are happy we have a place for our beloved pet when we travel again!

We could not have picked better people to leave Spotty with during our vacation. They are such a sweet family and really have a way with animals. I was very disorganized before our trip and they made it easy on me, letting me know what to pack for him. Spotty took to them right away at the meet and greet. And they were very kind and patient with us during the meet and greet, which made us all so comfortable and happy. When we were running late to the airport, they met us at the car. And since Spotty was so comfortable with them already, he just hopped right out. It felt great to know that he was happy, well cared for, and getting attention and not just stuck in a kennel the whole time we were gone. They even took lots of pictures and sent them to me. I would definitely highly recommend them as a pet sitter!!! (Collapse)

Complete relief to know this family was looking after my sweetheart. I was able to concentrate and work during my business trip not having to constantly worry if my dog was ok. Marcy and Tom are top notch communicators and wonderful people. I could not recommend this service more!!!

This was my 1st boarding experience and I was worried about my dog being without me for the 1st time. Marcy and Tom are incredible dog people who understood both my needs and my dogs. They were in contact with me the whole visit...allowing me to call in whenever I felt the need and texted me pictures etc to ease my mind. They catered to my dog the entire time working to make him comfortable and at ease. Great first experience. They have large yard and a sweet playful Doberman for borders to play with. I loved that they allowed my dog to behave there as he would at home for eating/sleeping arrangements. It made things much easier! Not only would I recommend this family I will only use their services in the future. Extremely trustworthy and kind to boot. (Collapse)
We are so blessed to have found Marcy and Tom to care for our home and animals. They always take great care and give us updates with pictures! Love them!!!
Marcy and Tom are excellent and we appreciate having them to take care of our home and fur babies! They do a wonderful job communicating and sharing pictures with us. I can't say enough good things....
Our girls were so happy there. This is the first time we left them and came back to happy pups. Marcy and Tom are awesome!! Their children are great with the pups. I feel so much better leaving them in their care.

Marcy and her family have watched our animals many times and we highly recommend them! We have a lot of animals including 2 dogs, 2 rabbits and 6 chickens and never worry about the care they receive when they are watching our pets. Our pets are spoiled and get lots of attention, thanks to our favorite pet watchers!

Marcy & Tom are total professionals but as warm as can be. They catered to my dog like I would have and took my dog in as one of their own. Despite both my & my dogs anxiety at being separated for the first from each other, this family made the transition very easy. Marcy updated me often via email and text, she sent pictures and took my phone calls making both myself and my baby completely comfortable. I came home to a dog who was happy to see me but way more relaxed than I expected. He settled right back into our routine like I hadn't been gone. This family totally surpassed my expectations on dog care and I will be using them again as they have gained my complete trust and gratitude for doing what they do. (Collapse)
