Margie usually takes care of my puppies but was out of town for some of the dates…this time she did drop-ins for my kitties. Everything was great! Litter boxes clean, food & water replenished, all left tidy & everything locked up tight after she left. Margie sent hilarious pics of my kitten Bonnie (left alone for the 1st time) very hissy & fierce looking…yet followed Margie everywhere!! Fortunately Margie got hugs in with ...

I'll love your fur kid like my own!

I have lived with dogs all my life and believe that no home is complete without the pitter-patter of doggie paws! I am experienced with extra large breeds (I had a Newfoundland) and high-energy dogs (border collies). I also have experience with special needs dogs, including allergies, seizures, medications, etc. and puppies being house trained. I hold a certification in Animal Psychology from the International Council for Online Standards. Most importantly, I will love your ...

What Margie would like to know about your dog

I'm open to all breeds, but won't accept dogs that I feel may be aggressive. I welcome large and extra large breeds, including German Shepherds and Rottweilers.

When Margie watches your pet

I live in a very quiet neighborhood near several parks. One is a large off-leash park with lots of dogs and a small and large dog section. Another is a small one only a short 5 or 6 blocks away, a nice diversion on a walk through the neighborhood, that usually has no other dogs there. The one I prefer is a 5 minute drive away, very quiet, usually with fewer than 5 or 6 dogs there at a time, that includes a small intercoastal beach for dogs who like to swim. We can also just go out in my large, fully fenced backyard, and play catch or, for seniors and low energy dogs, relax in the sun or the shade. If it's raining, we can still go outside and sit under the patio roof and watch the raindrops. Inside the house, we can play fetch or just sit on the couch (if you permit it) and cuddle. For dogs who love to go for rides, we can just tool around the neighborhood (in the cool weather, in my convertible!).
