Mariel was just fantastic. This was our first experience with and I was a little nervous, frankly. Mariel was very sweet and at drop-off, our dog ran right to her (she is a good judge of people, actually!) Mariel sent pictures and updates and responded to me within minutes while we were away. Our dog had more walks with Mariel than at home! We'd definitely go back to Mariel...very happy.

Cato clearly had a great time with Mariel, he came home happy. It was obvious he'd been on some great walks and done some good ball chasing as he was mellow (always ready for more, but it's really clear when he's been well exercised!). We will happily bring Cato back to Mariel's anytime!

A home full of love for your pet.


My name is Mariel. I’m a professional freelance musician and graphic designer living in Brighton Center. I’m also a huge dog lover! Just ask my family and friends.

I've spent a year as a professional dog walker and sitter in the South End neighborhood of Boston. I also grew up with dogs for my whole life. My family’s two Airedales, Porter and Binky, met me at the doors of the hospital when I was ...

What Mariel would like to know about your dog

The more I know about your dog before they come over the more comfortable stay they will have. Any must-know habits, quirks or no-nos? As long as they're friendly and have all required vaccinations, all dogs are welcome! In order to assure that your dog gets the best attention, I currently only accept one dog per stay.

When Mariel watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Of course! Almost all of our neighbors have dogs and the neighborhood is very dog friendly. There's a park three blocks away that has a nice dog-friendly community as well.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever you're comfortable with. I live in an open layout house (with doors that can close the layout) and have a comfortable dogbed for our guest.

Time I'll spend with your dog
As a freelance musician, most of my day is spent at home. Your pup will get plenty of love!
