About Maggie

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I can work from home and my office is local. I enjoy walking/running/playing with our visiting pets. In the past, I have dog-sat for travelers...before DogVacay even existed.

I have had dogs all my life and know how much they add to my family and my own personal life. I will take excellent care of your loved one, too. Mulitiple walks and lots of attention are staples in my house. I like to snuggle on the couch as well as have fun playing catch and going on walks. I send lots of photos throughout the stay so you won't miss him/her too much!

Look forward to meeting you and your pet!

Maggie was great with Midget and made sure she was happy while we were away. We'd happily have our pup stay with Maggie again.
Maggie was a great host; my dog Casey was obviously well looked-after and had new experiences every day, going for rides and meeting people. I know he loved it because he was exhausted on Sunday afternoon when we got him back! Maggie is warm and personable, and responded quickly to any emails, from initially setting up the dates to the occasional email checking up on him during his stay. She sent a few pictures which were appreciated: we could see that our dog was both relaxed and engaged. We would certainly use her again.

Maggie took excellent care of our pup Pepper when we went out of the country for two weeks. We had a meet and greet the week before; she was super nice and Pepper took to her right away. During his stay, Maggie took Pepper to visit friends, so he was able to enjoy their big backyards, and she even took him to her office with her (something I wish so badly I could do myself)! She truly went above and beyond: when one of Pepper's toys got lost somewhere, she bought him a new one, and when he ignored his food, she bought some wet food to mix in and entice him to eat more. Pepper was in great hands and enjoyed his vacation. We will definitely use Maggie again!

Maggie took great care of my Cavalier pup Emma. I received photo updates and never worried about her while on my vacation.
Maggie was absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend her! She responded quickly to all my questions and sent pictures daily. She was extremely attentive to our little bichon Buddy! She took him to work with her and to a senior living facility where she volunteers. Buddy turned 1 year old when he was with Maggie and she sent adorable pictures of him with birthday balloons and a special treat!. We could not have asked for a more attentive and kind pet sitter!
Many thanks Maggie and Buddy looks forward to staying with you again in December!

Our little guy had a great time and we enjoyed the pictures that Maggie sent each day, it felt like he was not that far away ! :)
Maggie was very sweet with my dog and she sent me many pictures of her while I was on vacation, I extremely recomend her.
Super great experience!
We had a great experience with Maggie! My family went out of town for almost two weeks over the holidays - a stressful time to begin with and having to leave one of your "children" behind makes it even harder. She was very flexible in scheduling the meet and greet and we were put at ease right away. While we were gone she kept us updated with emails sent us great pics. Would definitely recommend Maggie to anyone!

I left my 2 year old beagle with Maggie and her family during an impromptu weekend trip out of town. I was nervous about leaving him (this is the first time we've been separated since his puppy days), but Maggie and her family were fantastic in caring for Wilfred. Not only did Maggie respond promptly with any questions I had pre trip, but during Wilfred's stay she sent many photos which eased any separation woes on my end. Knowing Wilfred was well cared for during my trip meant the world to me.

Maggie and her family were absolutely great with my dog Avery. This was the first time that I had used Maggie on Dogvacay and was completely satisfied! I was having a hard time leaving Avery since this would be the first Christmas without her and I was traveling out of the country, but Maggie and her family were truly wonderful and made me and Avery feel right at ease. She sent me updates and pictures of Avery while I was away which helped me to enjoy my vacation knowing Avery was enjoying her time as well. Thanks so much Maggie and family- Avery came back one tired pup!!!

My 4-yr-old beagle, Jasper, had never before been boarded away from home. He has a lot of separation anxiety, even if I'm away for just an hour or two, and I was about to leave him with strangers for two weeks. So naturally I was very concerned. But Maggie and her family were TERRIFIC. They gave Jasper lots of love and attention, plus plenty of walks. And on top of that, they had a very large fenced-in back yard for him to play in (something he's never had, since I live in an apartment in DC). And Jasper got along great with Maggie's dog Belle. While I was away, Maggie texted me pictures of Jasper having fun and acting Jasper-y. I knew that he was in good hands and that I'd made the right decision entrusting Maggie with him. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone searching for a caring, trustworthy person to look after their dog. And BTW - if you live in DC, Maggie's house is a very short drive and easy to find, and in a nice quiet neighborhood that your dog will love walking around (Maggie will even jog with your dog, if he/she likes to do that). I expect to be travelling again two months from now, and this time I know exactly what to do with Jasper (I just pray that Maggie won't be all booked up by the time I make my plans).

Maggie and her family were wonderful hosts! My pup, Breezy, was well taken care of and truly became one of the family. Maggie was so patient and caring and I will certainly request that Breezy stay with them again. I highly recommend Maggie. I cannot thank her enough for the care, attention and love Breezy received while I was away. AND with all the opportunities she had to run and play with Maggie's dog my girl is completely and utterly exhausted and content...what a vacation! :)
