Meet Marilyn

A Wife, Mom, and Dog Lover...

Marilyn founded Mandarin Pet Care in 1987. Her love of animals and serving her community has turned Mandarin Pet Care into a vital part of hundreds of pet owners' lives throughout the years.

Before dog boarding, Marilyn served Southeastern Guide Dogs, training animals for special needs patients.

She also served with Paws with a Cause, expanding the service possible for our furry friends.

Marilyn runs Mandarin Pet Care with her daughter, Rachel.

Together, they provide intimate care for your loved pet through daily attention and care.

Your dog may not want to come home!

Our Services

Our Dog Boarding Process

Your dog is going to love our boarding process! 

That is because we spend quality time with each pet during their stay. Every day, your dog will receive

  • 4 outdoor play sessions on green grass with other friendly and compatible dogs
  • 2 full meals for breakfast and dinner
  • 2 snacks throughout the day
  • Quiet and undisturbed nap time in the middle of the day
  • Plenty of hands on attention from Marilyn herself!
  • And great relaxing music to help your dog fall asleep at night 🙂

We know it is hard to leave your pet for even a day, so we welcome your special requests to make sure your dog has an amazing visit.

Special bedding material? No problem!

Special food? You got it!

Special medications? Of course!

We know your dog will love his or her stay at Mandarin Pet Care!

Doggy Day Care

Need to drop off before work and pick up on the way home? Many of our customers love our Doggy Day Care service!

We accept drop off's and pick ups between 8:00 - 10:00 am in the morning, and between 4:00 - 6:00 pm in the evening.

We have these windows to ensure our guests are able to maintain a healthy routine throughout the day. It's very important for our guests to have good structure and support while they are here, and having other humans coming in and out all day long can interfere with their experience. And we don't want that 🙂


Your dog is going to have a BLAST here!

Playing with his new friends in nature, the way dogs are meant to play! Or walking through our 11 acres of nature trails during a hand-walking session... there is so much to see and smell at Mandarin Pet Care!

Sometimes, dogs will be dogs, and can get a bit "natural," during their stay here! We always do minor touch ups to keep your pet clean throughout his stay with us, but many of our customers love having their pet freshly groomed, trimmed, and pampered before they return home!

We are highly trained at bathing, mat removal, nail trimming, and ear cleaning. If we see anything that you pet may really appreciate having done during their stay, we will recommend the service to you during the stay. By the time you pick up your baby, he or she can be clean, happy, and ready to come home!


You won't find better pricing in town! The combination of personal touch, quality outdoor time, and experience makes Mandarin Pet Care a rare business in this day in age.
