  • “Marlize really loves dogs. You can see it by the photos she sends. She captured so many adorable moments of my girl and I know my girl loved her too. Thank you for her perfect vacation.”

  • “Marlize was great! She was flexible about our schedule dropping off and picking up our dogs. She sent us photos of the dogs twice a day. Our pups had a great time!”

  • “Marlize was fantastic with Biscuit. We never had to worry! She sent us pictures 2x a day that clearly showed he was having the time of his life. Even her dog was a great host letting our 4lb Biscuit sit on top of him to relax. Will definitely use Marlize again!”

  • Marlize did a great job with Cooper. Cooper had an awesome time. She even took him on a hike! I would refer anybody to her and will be booking a stay for Cooper again for sure. Thank you!!

  • “Marlize has taken care of our cats numerous times and always does a great job. Some of our pets require special food, and she makes sure each one has what they are supposed to have. She sends us photos every day so we can see how they are. Highly recommended.
