After a sitter lost my beloved pet while at their home, I couldn't bring myself to leave my other pets for two years. Finally, this month, I took the plunge, but not until speaking with several sitters (most lovely). I came across Marlene and we spent over an hour visiting and getting to know one another. Almost 2 months later, I took a deep breath and booked a stay for this past weekend. She was ...

I am going to be honest. I was completely nervous and unsure about doing this. I have never had a babysitter for my little yorkie ever. I was nervous she would not like it or that she would be depressed but Marlene and her family gave her so much love and attention based on the pictures she sent me through out the day that I felt better every hour and made me feel confident that ...

Our first experience with Dog Vacay was December 25th, Christmas morning. I was frantic because we have 2 puppies that needed sitting that afternoon. Marlene was fabulous! She tuned right in to my "state" and was very calming, reassuring me that all would be well. Our puppies were very well cared for
and had a lovely time with Marlene and her family.
Thank you so much. Paul & Debbie

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!!!
