We loved having Margaret as our pet sitter for a week. She updated us regularly and kept in touch if we had any questions. We came home to happy, well-taken care of animals. We will definitely ask Margaret to dog sit for us again in the future. Thank you!!

Margaret is a fantastic dog sitter. She is caring, thoughtful and a responsible animal lover. Our Miniature Schnauzer, Duke, just adores her!

I am a life-long animal lover, and I relish in opportunities to live vicariously through and love and care for others' pets like they are my very own.

When Margaret watches your pet

I live very close to lovely walking trails and Madison and Duck Lakes. I am also a world-class fetch player, having grown up with golden retrievers. As an avid outdoors-woman, I have rain and snow gear that allows me to make sure your pet still gets some ample time outside, even if the weather is inclement.
