About Margaret

My husband and I are the type of dog lovers who stop dogs in the street to talk with them, the dogs. We totally speak dog.

We have two dogs ourselves, Bandit who is terrier/chihuahua and Leroy who is mostly chihuahua. They are very well socialized and good company for visiting doggy guests. They work full time as shop dogs (I pay them in kibble) so are accustomed to meeting new dogs, and welcoming them into our space. We have many years of overnight experience dog sitting the pets of our friends and family.

Our regular routine is a walk around the block first thing in the morning at about 7:30, a trip outside around 11am, a 6pm round the block walk, and then a visit outside before bedtime. Let us know your doggy's schedule and we can accommodate their needs.

For our weekend guests, we will take them daily to Alamo Square Park, and mix in special walks along the paths behind Mountain Lake Park. Being football season, there's also guaranteed couch time. We offer a little of everything!

We have two newborns so are only accepting guests who are available for a meet n greet prior to the booking.

I had never used a dogsitter prior to using Margaret. What I appreciated the most was her extra care in making sure Truffles was a good fit - we did a meet and great to ensure everyone got along! This small extra step made a big difference. I knew Truffles would be in great hands and in a caring, loving home while I was away on business. Margaret will be my go to for future stays. Thank you so much!

Margaret was awesome! Our dog, Russell, stayed for about 12 days, which is the longest he's ever been away from us. Margaret made the whole process so easy, and kept us updated the whole time with messages and pictures. Russell seemed right at home and had a great time. We will definitely be booking again!

Margaret has become our "go to" sitter whenever we're out of town and need someone to watch Sam, our yellow lab. She and her husband are responsive and attentive, and best of all -- they send plenty of adorable pics of Sam while we're away! Totally reliable and -- as any dog owner knows -- such a relief to have someone you trust that you can leave your dog with without any worries whatsoever.

Thanks Margaret!!!

Margaret was great with my bulldog Winston! Took fantastic care of him and sent me daily photos. Highly recommend.
Margaret and her family are the absolute best. They take care of Sam as if he is their own, and we consistently receive happy, smiling pictures of Sam's stays. Sam has stayed with Margaret on multiple occasions and every visit has been exceptional! My only hesitation with a 5 star rating is that Margaret may become too popular!

Margaret and her family are super friendly and accommodating. She took my dog with pretty short notice and also fed him because I ran out of dog food on the day of. I would definitely leave my dog with her again!
Charming hosts! Sydney enjoyed her stay with the family and looks forward to a return visit. Excellent for people-oriented doggies!
Margaret did an excellent job watching our little Riley! She was responsive, sent updates and took him for lots of walks. Pick up and drop off was super easy as well. I would definitely use her again in the future.
Margaret was so great--she not only took my dog very last minute when I had to go out of town, but she also administered meds my dog needed. I felt like my dog was in amazing hands--she ate well, she exercised, and she came home happy and relaxed! Margaret also kept in touch by sending photo updates so I could see all the fun my pup was having!

Margaret is a fantastic host. We've dropped Benny off with her the last 2 weekends (one of which was fairly short notice) and both times were excellent experiences. She was very flexible with drop-off and pick up times, and Benny seemed to truly enjoy his time there. Highly recommended!
