About Marguerite

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As semi-retired 20+ year animal pro, my home is a dog paradise. I alone will care for your your beloved companion. My rates and services are flexible. If there is something specific you need, simply ask and we can work it out. My preferred canine guests are under 40 lbs but we will provide services to dogs of any size outside my home. We are also happy to have just about any other species spend time with us as long as their home travels with them. Unfortunately, for their own safety with dogs around, we prefer not to have feline visitors. We have had cats in out family in the past and all has gone well, but cat visitors would be better off in another home.

Visiting Berkeley Springs, WV? Your hotel "does not take pets"? Call me!

Regarding large dogs, if I have no other current guests I will consider large and even giant breeds. I lived with Rhodesian Ridgebacks for many years (80 lbs. and over).

During their stay, your furry family members will be part of our household, spending their days with myself along with my small companions Duzty and Tutes. When we have an animal guest, I stay at home. Your canine companion will sleep with us in the bedroom, unless you bring a bed or carrier which you prefer. If I care for any other animal such as a fish, bird, gerbil, etc., their temporary home will be in my dining room where they can observe and be part of the family.

Canine guests go outside for regular walks on leash, around the property. There is no extra charge for "playtime" or a couch to lay on. The spoiling they receive at home continues here in their home away from home. And we are never overcrowded since there will never be more than 2 canine guests at a time, and/or one guest of another species.

In addition to hosting doggie guests, I'm semi-retired from an animal massage business where I worked with a variety of animals. Until about 5 years ago I raised and exhibited AKC Champion Rhodesian Ridgebacks and ran a Texas RR Rescue. I actively participated in local rescue (Tutes is a rescued dog). I can handle special-needs pets and am adept at administering medication. Feel free to write with any questions you may have. Hope to meet you soon!

Everything from start to finish, went well. Marguerite is very responsive, answers quickly, and took good care of our dog, Brooklyn. We'd never left Brooklyn before, and were extremely nervous about it. Marguerite was so patient and easy to talk to. She understood and respected all our concerns. We only needed to leave Brooklyn a few hours, but when we came and got her, she was just fine.

We're from Michigan and were attending a wedding at Cacapon State Resort Park. Luckily, we found Marguerite on this site and got a reservation with her. She was very nice and has a lot of experience with dogs. After meeting her, we felt very comfortable leaving our little Buddy with her. The communication with her was very good. She responded to all my messages very quickly. If you're in the Berkeley Springs, WV area and have a need for a dog sitter, please consider Marguerite. We really liked her!

Marguerite kept my two babies over Christmas and did a great job. The dogs seemed very relaxed and happy when I picked them up.
