About Margaret

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I'm Margaret

Bambi and I live in Del Ray, Alexandria. Right off the Avenue. Getting out with my dog and meeting other dogs and neighbors really energizes me! I look forward to hosting your pup at my place weekdays, weekends or holidays.

MY DOG:
I have a small Tan Pomeranian. Her name is Bambi. She loves life! She has a reserved personality but is cheerful and is great company. She gets along with other dogs. She mainly keeps to herself and does her own thing. She's been known to keep the energy quite calm. .

MY PLACE:
I live in an apartment. I live alone. No roommates or children. Just me and Bambi. There is no fenced in backyard. Regular walks are a part of our routine. We walk a minimum of 2, 15/20 min walks a day along adding other walks which are shorter. I like to know what your pup needs for walks so we can adapt. We like to get cozy so your pup is welcome to relax and let loose!

MY DAILY SCHEDULE: I am a school teacher and do the work week thing. Evenings are flexible with visits to the park or a stroll on the "avenue".

YOUR DOG:
Your dog needs to be fully house broken and leash trained. I will not walk your dog off leash at any time. Please provide leash/harness that is secure so that your pup can not wiggle out during walks or if anxious. All pups must have a tag with their owners contact info secured to their harness/collar. We like to be cozy so bring along any bedding, blankets toys or treats to help keep your pup happy. If your dog likes to be in a crate while im out, bring that along too. I accommodate any feeding schedule, walking routine or medication regiment. Just provide details if needed.

MY SERVICES:
I offer boarding for $38 per pup/per night. I offer pickup/drop off service for $10 each trip. Check my calendar for availability.

BOOKING WITH ME:
I require a meet-n-greet for ALL first time guests. I am flexible after 6pm most weekdays and flexible on weekends for meet-n-greets. I require 3 days notice for all First time guest so we can do a meet-n-greet. Repeat guest are free to book last minute depending on my calendar availability.

CANCELATION POLICY:
Guest will receive a full refund when giving 3 full days notice before Vacay. Guest will receive a 50% refund if notice is given less than 3 full days before Vacay date starts.

PHOTOS!:
A few shots of the pups who have stayed at the HAPPY HOUND HOTEL for Vacay are up in my gallery! You will receive great pics and updates of your pup everyday while they stay with us!

Your pup is in good hands! Thank you for considering me to host your family member!

Fantastic dog sitter! Margaret was very attentive and affectionate to my dog Soren. She sent daily updates and photos of my dog.
Very satisfied with Margaret. Good communication, photo updates...etc. Will likely book again.
Margaret watched our dog Isabelle while we were away for the weekend in October and she was great! I received regular updates and pictures, and knew she was taking great care of our pup!
