About Margo

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, My name is Margo!

I am a champion for all animals, devoted to animal welfare, & proud mother of Benny, a 5 year old Shih Tzu. We love hosting other small dogs in our home and welcome yours!

I work full-time in non-profit development, so I'm able to watch your pup on the weekends (Friday-Sunday)*. I will be with them 24/7 and we'll enjoy: long walks in our beautiful neighborhood, sun naps on the enclosed deck, extensive play sessions with Benny, and lots of cuddles, belly rubs, and praise for having little paws!

*Special arrangements can be made for a Monday morning pick up.

Our guests should: be under 20 pounds, any breed, at least 2 years of age, spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, friendly with other dogs/non-aggressive, and housebroken. Benny enjoys 4 walks a day (for potty and play), so we'll extend that to your little one as well. Benny is not crated, but if you prefer that yours be crated, that's cool!

Meet & Greets are required for all first-time guests prior to your pup's vacation, to ensure a safe and comfortable stay. I am also only able to take one dog per stay.

As your hosts: We promise to be compassionate, loving and attentive to your needs. Share our space, which includes two living room couches, one bedroom, an enclosed deck, and our fenced front yard! Include email or text updates with photos, so you always know what your little pup is up to. Abide by any diet considerations, schedule or commands, so that your little one isn't confused during their stay. Practice safe walks (on leash), safe play (with Benny- not other dogs unless you say so), and have access to our vet if anything should happen.

We welcome your pup to enjoy a comfortable, fun, and safe stay while you are away!

Geordie had a great time yesterday with Margo and Bennie...he was still full of energy when he got home, which is unusual! So that tells me he had a relaxing visit. We received some great photos, and we're looking forward to the next visit!
Margo is a best host a dog owner/parent can ask for!! She went above and beyond taking care of our pup as if he was her own and kept us updated through pictures and videos on a daily basis. We boarded Harvey with her for almost a month and not a day went by without her updating me about Harvey's activities. Her dog, Benny became Harvey's bff in no time and their days were spent with non stop playtime and in between nap times. Margo was very particular in finding out about harvey's feeding and potty schedule and walked the dogs multiple times a day. Needless to say we came home to a very happy, satisfied pup and Harvey can't wait to hang out with Benny again! Thank you, Margo for everything!!
I'm so happy to have found Margo (and Benny)! She was very accommodating of my schedule and easy to communicate with. I really appreciated how she reached out to me before my reservation to ask about Liam's schedule and habits. It put my mind at ease to know that she was going to make his stay and comfortable as possible. I also appreciated the regular updates and photos. I highly recommend her! Thanks Margo & Benny for the wonderful weekend!
Margo is absolutely fantastic! She is truly a dog lover and her home is a great space for dogs. Rory had an excellent time, and I felt safe and happy to have him stay with her. Will definitely use her again.
Margo was the perfect host for our dog Ceasar! She was very accommodating with our schedule/needs and was extremely prompt at replying to our last minute booking request. Throughout Ceasar's vacay, Margo kept us up to date on how Ceasar was doing and sent plenty of pictures. We felt very comfortable leaving Ceasar with Margo and will definitely use her again in the future!
