Marlena was so kind and thoughtful. she came over and met our dog before, sent us many pictures and even cleaned up our puppy's mess when he broke out of his cage into the apartment! Will definitely use again and would recommend!

Marlena is the greatest. My dogs adore her and she is very thoughtful and considerate about sharing my space. She is very responsible and I trust her to handle anything that might come up.

About Marlena

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

full of energy, smiles, and cuddles

I am an actor and writer living in Brooklyn, on the Park Slope and Boerum Hill cusp (so lots of great walks around!) I love all dogs, big and small. I am totally comfortable with energetic dogs who want to run and play fetch, as well as with slower dogs who prefer a calm walk or don't get along with other dogs. I never do pack walks to ensure that I am giving your pup ...

What Marlena would like to know about your dog

Any allergies? Friendly with other dogs? May I take them to the dog park? Am I permitted to give the dog any treats?

Additional Skills
Can provide daily exercise

When Marlena watches your pet

We will go on walks to parks and explore surrounding neighborhoods! We will play fetch and have dance parties! And of course, lots of pets and cuddles!
