There is no one like Marlene! She is so loving with our dog and she really knows her personality. Our dog loves going there and we just think Marlene is the best. She plays with her, walks her and sends cute texts with pictures of her. We love Marlene and have been back many times.

Marlene is a sweetheart! She took a fantastic care of Pepper, like she was her own baby! I think Pepper had a great time with other pups and played a lot! When we picked her up she was super tired which is exactly what I expect from puppy vacation! Marlene was great with updating us how Pepper was doing and was sending a lot of photos from the walks naps and plays :) definitely will ...

Marlene was great with Rocco. He had a great time at her place and we’ll be happy to have her sit him again.

Some people tell me I look like Dora the Explorer. Both of us are definitely very animated. I have been a dog owner for many years, sometimes having 3 at a time. They are my kids and yours will be, too. ...

What Marlene would like to know about your dog

It is very important to me to have my client's dog's vet number in case of emergency, current up-to-date flea and worm prevention, discussion on behavior towards other dogs, how they walk on a leash, if they are aggressive with people and/or other dogs, if they are house-broken, if they chew on things, if they share toys, their sleeping habits, their eating habits, etc. I take this all very seriously and I am confident all will be extremely happy!!!
