Mara and her family took care of our year-and-a-half year-old Australian Shepherd while we were on vacation. It was great experience for us and for our puppy.

Dogs are my favorite people!

I am a stay at home mom with 2 young children ages 3 and 7. My children absolutely LOVE dogs. We have a Shih tzu puppy named Cody, he is such a good boy that gets along with children and other dogs. I figured since we adore dogs why not take care of them in my home. I have had dogs growing up and as a pet with my family. We know it's hard to ...

What Mara would like to know about your dog

I keep a clean home and have young children so I would appreciate it if your pet is groomed before drop off with nails trimmed. All dogs must be friendly toward children and other dogs as well as crate trained, spayed/neutered, and up to date on shots. Thank you, I look forward to meeting you and your dog!
