Margaret has been great with Maggie for almost a year now. She always send great pictures and makes lots of comments about the walks. Margaret is one of my doggies favorite people now and can't wait for her walks. Thanks Margaret for all the help!!!
Margaret is a "dog whisperer". She really knows how to communicate with even my fussy maltipoo. I would ask her to take care of our dogs again at the drop of a hat!
Margaret is incredibly patient, organized and reliable. Our dogs, 14-year-old Zoe, who is hard of hearing, and 11-year-old Grover, who is very timid, love her and go crazy whenever she comes in the house. We trust her completely with our fur babies.
Small dog walks & dropins
I want to specialize in small dogs because I have a 12-pound dog and, probably like you, I'm not always comfortable having her interact with large dogs. You never know when that prey instinct will surface. So this way, I can take my small dog with me when I walk your dog. I am very calm and gentle with dogs. I do well with timid or senior dogs. And I even have a pet stroller ...
What Margaret would like to know about your dog
I prefer small dogs.
I would want to do a meet and greet beforehand to see how your dog and my dog get along. My dog is very mellow and is good with timid dogs. In fact, at puppy kindergarten, my dog helped two different shy dogs come out and play.
Please tell me if your dog has any food allergies. I usually bring little bits of cheese or Ziwi Peaks lamb dog food and offer to the dog when they do tricks or come. But let me know if your fur baby has a sensitive tummy.
Also, please let me know if there is anything I should watch out for. For example, I walked one dog that freaked out whenever the UPS truck or similar sounding truck drove by. I watched a Chow and a Pit Bull and was told that they fought, so I never had them both out in the same area at the same time.
