Margaret was great. We asked her to house sit with our dog and new kitten, during a holiday weekend away. The animals were well fed and happy and the house was clean. We will be using her again in the future.

Margaret watched my two pups for four days and did an excellent job. My babies were in good hands and its relieving to know I can trust her in the future.

Life-long Dog Caretaker

Hello! I have been a dog owner since I was 10 years old and have always had a special bond with them. I've never met a dog I didn't like, or one that didn't like me!
I can host dogs in my apartment, but only if your dog gets along with other dogs. I can also provide house-sitting, walking, and drop-in visits as long as you're within a 15 mile radius of the 78741 zip ...

What Margaret would like to know about your dog

Before we meet, I'd love to know a little bit about your dog. What size, age, breed, temperament, etc., and whether or not they get along with other dogs.

When Margaret watches your pet

For weekends, I can spend as much time with your dog as he/she/you would like. I absolutely love taking dogs out to parks, especially on weekends. Red Bud Isle is a personal favorite for me, so we might end up going there, or to any of the other awesome parks around Austin.

During weekdays I have a 9-5 job, but I have a reliable car and can easily get wherever I need to in order to look after your furry friend.

Every day I like to take the dog for at least two half hour long walks, one in the morning, one in the evening, but if the dog is up for it I often like going to parks for slightly longer sojourns.

And feeding is, of course, left to your discretion (once a day, twice a day, open bowl, etc.).
