Margaret has an intrinsic way with dogs. Rudy was treated as part of the family and we were updated regularly with photos. We absolutely loved bringing our dog to her and will again in the future!

Margaret wanted to make sure I was comfortable with her young daughter being present during the walks so she suggested bringing her to our meet and greet. Rox quickly became a big fan of them both. Surprisingly, because Rox was a recent rescue and it usually takes him some time to warm up to new people. Margaret walked Rox twice weekly for a good while. My wife and I appreciated the care and attention she ...

Margaret was incredibly caring. We felt at ease knowing that Mischa, our cat, was in loving, capable hands.

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.

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.
