Margaret has such a passion for dogs. Through her volunteer work at shelters and her experience walking dogs for the last 6 years I have seen how caring she is for these precious creatures. She always strives to create a loving and calming environment so that the dog feels like she is there for them. She is always responsible and ensures that routines are followed and things are put back where they belong. Overall, she ...

Happy to do beach visits on weekday

I currently work at a local dog and cat groomer service. I have had black female Labradors all my life and have a small amount of experience raising puppies as one of my first dogs had a litter. In my spare time, I volunteer at Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority in Santa Clara and hope to get more experience with handling little ones while I am there.
I am a full-time student at Foothill community ...

What Margaret would like to know about your dog

Before dog sitting, I would like to know the dog's name, age, gender, breed, and background information ( was he/she a rescue? Is she/he vaccinated, neutered etc.). I would love to hear about how your dog interacts with new people (as well as other dogs) and how to approach them. I like to know what habits they have and what makes them happy. I would also like to know if they have any allergies and need epi pens etc. And of course what types of treats are okay to give and if I should feed them after their walks?

I am happy to provide care to any dog breed. I love them all! My favorites though are Labradors, Golden Retrievers, and Goldendoodles.

When Margaret watches your pet

Generally, I enjoy taking dogs to a local park. I will walk, run, and play fetch with them for about a half an hour to an hour and depending on the dog's energy level I may stay longer. My goal is to have a tired out happy pooch and not only just go for potty breaks.
When house sitting, overnights for extended periods of time, or Sundays. I am happy to take your dog to the beach (and a local self-grooming like Petco afterward if requested). Beach visits may cost a bit extra for grooming service and gas but I am happy to negotiate pricing per individual. The beach I like to go to is called Pillar Point in Half Moon Bay which is dog-friendly and has a flat water bay perfect for swimming.
