This was our second stay with Margaret and our Jules was so happy when we pulled up to her house. That's how I know she has a great time when staying with Margaret and her family. They provide so much love and attention for dogs. Rocky is a wonderful dog friend and happy to share his family. It's so great to not have to worry about Jules while travelling.

Very thorough yet efficient in initial meet and greet, including but not limited to rules, behavior, and general questions/concerns. Very effective at helping new dogs establish healthy interaction with each other.
First day updates were right in the goldilocks zone: not too many, not too few. I definitely felt she was being attentively cared for.
Pickup was smooth and timely. Again a great summary of her stay, with helpful behavioral observations.
Margaret is great ...

Home full-time with a fenced yard.

I believe in a quiet firm tone to let animals know I am in charge. I believe quiet firm body language and words makes animals feel safe and secure. I try to read the body language of animals also and use that to work with them at their pace. I love learning about new dogs and teaching them new tricks. This stimulates their mind and is fun for them which makes them happy to learn ...

When Margaret watches your pet

I also have a kitten. He believes he is my dog’s baby and he believes he is a dog. Do you have a gentle dog who has never met a cat? Would you like to get a cat, but you are unsure of your dog? Our cat is a great training cat. We can schedule a meet and greet to see if our cat would be a good match to train your dog. I have had great experiences with sitting dogs who have never met a cat before. By the end of the day, the dogs and my cat are sleeping side by side on the floor.
