Marilyn took excellent care of our 5 year old yellow lab. She gave him plenty of exercise and lots of love (just what he needed). We really enjoyed our vacation knowing he was in such good hands.

Marilyn was great! She was flexible, friendly and sweet to my dog. Her house is nice and clean and the neighborhood is adorable (a neighbor had an actual lemonade stand set up across the street with a few neighborhood kids and they were all waving to us, it was so cute!)

Wanted: Walking Partner!!

I am active, retired, and live alone. I walk 1-2 mi/day and would enjoy the company. Village setting with sidewalks and street lights.

I had a black lab I had to put down 5 years ago and started dog boarding to get my "dog fix" - kinda ...

What Marilyn would like to know about your dog

Dog must be friendly, socialized and house trained (piddle papers okay). I like all breeds - each have their own special characteristics. Helpful information for me when boarding your dog:
Commands or words they respond to
Their schedule for meals, walks, treats, potty breaks
Any concerns you have about leaving your dog with a sitter

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Marilyn watches your pet

Long walks on village streets, going to a nearby dog park to run and plan fetch if socialized and can be off a leash. Coming outside with me while I work in the yard (weather permitting). Meeting all of my dog-loving family on Sunday dinners. Accompanying me on short errands if they are used to it. For safety, dog must stay in the back seat.
