Margaret is an animal lover through and through. Not only does she adore all pets, but she also is very responsible, caring, and enthusiastic.

What Margaret would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds of dog, I am happy to care for any breed and for multiple dogs at a time. I would like to know if they have any allergies, if they have any triggers we might encounter on a walk, and what their favorite treats and toys are!

When Margaret watches your pet

I love to take dogs on long walks in their neighborhood and by the lake and will make sure to bring water and treats for them so they can stay happy and healthy! We will play fetch, go for runs and have lots of fun with all their toys!
