Marlena was WONDERFUL with my puppy Jonah! He was so excited to get to her house every morning. When I put him to bed at night, he fell right asleep and slept through the night.

Marlena is absolutely wondeful! She is reliable and attentive, and maybe most importantly - lots of fun!! My dog always loves a visit from Marlena! I would highly recommend Marlena to care for your dog as well.
