Marsha boarded our dog Toby for a few days while we went on vacation. Toby had a great stay with Marsha! Marsha, a long time dog owner, provided him with a loving and caring home. Marsha was very flexible with drop off and pick up times and sent us pictures and texts throughout his stay. Toby seemed quite happy and relaxed!

Another terrific stay for Colfax with Marsha. He definitely feels Marsha is a member of his pack and loves his stays. Thanks Marsha!

Experienced loving dog & cat sitter

I’ve owned & loved Min Pins, spaniels, Akita, Giant Schnauzer, Border Collie, Dobermans as well as cats, horses, pigs, sheep when I owned my ranch.. I rescued Dobermans for years, retrained, & rehomed them. Now retired from my job after 31 years, I have Time & no pets of my own. I’m financially secure so I don't rely on Rover money but enjoy the chance to provide a happy environment for your fur baby as ...

What Marsha would like to know about your dog

1--Is your dog a barker? Because I live in a condo I can't keep a dog which barks frequently or if left alone. Although I am home 95% of the time, I still need to buy groceries, see family, etc.
2--Does your dog enjoy being around new people/strangers or does he prefer less interaction with people/pets he does not know. This helps me make walks stress-free for him.
3--Does your dog enjoy brisk walks or short potty breaks and less activity.
4--Is pet crate trained; often the security of his own crate helps with anxiety in a new atmosphere.
I'd also like to know his little quirks to help ensure your pet is happy when you are gone. Often the little things make the difference in making his stay a comfortable one.

Dogs which are hosted in my home must be housebroken and neutered. They usually sleep on my bed at night unless they prefer their crate.

When Marsha watches your pet

I ONLY TAKE ONE DOG AT A TIME (except when staying at your home with your family dogs) to be able to keep your absence as stress-free as possible. We spend days hanging out, going for walks along the waterfront and in local parks. I will give all my attention to your dog or cat while you can't be with him. My visiting dogs become family and I love them as well as they love me.
I have loved and been loved by many wonderful dogs and cats over the years.
