My little old guy is adorable , and disabled, so he needs extra attention. I feel very safe leaving him with Margaret and Luka. They are tender hearted and a clean environment. Great Communicators. They asked a lot of questions to ensure his well being and they are super accommodating. Loads of fun pictures of park adventures and happy moments of his stay. I am afraid my review will make it harder to book them, but ...

Margaret is a die-hard animal lover--a friend to all critters--but has a special soft spot for dogs. Clearly, they have a special soft spot for her. If one is nearby, within a matter of minutes the dog will be in Margaret's lap or getting its belly rubbed by her. She has that connection with them and they know it! You dog will be well loved and given lots of attention with Margaret watching him or ...

I met Margaret in Santiago de Chile when I was looking for someone to look after my labrador while we went away for the weekend. She was incredible and Luna (our dog!) loved her energy - so much that we used her several times before she left Chile.

Dog-loving couple home full time

Hello there, we're Margaret and Luka, a young, dog-loving couple in Echo Park. We live just a four-minute walk from the park, a perfect place for walks and doggy playtime. Luka works from home, which means we can provide for your dog pretty much 24 hours a day.

We are absolutely dog-crazy. We recently moved back to LA after spending a year in Santiago, Chile, a city full of street dogs. We found joy feeding ...

What Margaret would like to know about your dog

We live in an apartment, so though we love all dogs equally, we can only take dogs that do not bark a lot. Of course regular dog barks are okay! But if your dog tends to bark all the time, unfortunately we can't take your dog.

We also have 2 very gentle cats, so we require dogs that won't be aggressive toward them. Our cats are very good around dogs and will not pick any fights.

When Margaret watches your pet

Luka works from home, so we can care for your dog pretty much 24 hours a day, and we live just a 4 minute walk from Echo Park, a perfect park to take the dog for a long walk. We can also take them for longer, more intense walks in Elysian park (with your permission). And of course, we'll provide your dogs with belly rubs and playtime galore!
