About Marika

We are family of 4 with two boys that love dogs, I always had dogs of my own but since I lost my last one I decided to help out families that have nowhere to leave their pet, and been looking after dogs for short or long stays the last 6 yrs. There is more than enough space around the house for little fur pals to run around as well as the rear garden and local park just down the road to stretch their little legs. We do have a preference for small dogs, but we have a female Labrador also staying often. If you are wishing to stay overnight or for several days we got you covered, we love playing, cuddling, and walking our doggy guests. We have a nice big garden and also go on walks to our local fields when weather permits.
Your dog would be in trusted hands with us and we are also able to give you references from families already using our services.

    Riley had a great time with Marika and her family. It was his first time away from us and he was happy to go into their house, and the photos we received showed he was as comfortable in Marika's house as he is in ours. We will gladly use Marika again next time we go away.

    Marika looked after my Yorkie for a week. I was worried, because at the same time she got other big dog. Everything went very well with both dogs. She treated my dog like part of the family. She had children and they gave a lot of care to my dog whilst I was away. I recommend for everyone.

    Tully, my dog, seemed to settle really well with Marika. She seemed highly competent and knowledgeable about a dog's needs and how to cope with any behaviour which was unacceptable - for example, Tully barked in the middle of the night on the first evening, but she was not at all phased by this. She updated us with his progress by text and photographs regularly. I would definitely use her again.
