About Marge

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Kodiak & I would like to welcome you to our large, fully fenced, 100% chemical free back yard & cozy home with supervised play & positive interaction & company for your dog.

14+ years experience in dog & pet care. Formerly active with Golden Retriever & German Shepherd Dog rescues. We hosted 25+ dogs over 4 year period.

I first fostered Kodiak in 2005 & adopted him that same year. The vet had placed his age at 12-14 months. Thru the next few years I was involved with German Shepherd rescue he has interacted with at least 20 fosters with no incidents whatsoever. He has since interacted with a variety of other breeds that we have boarded over the years. He is a gentle, "fluff bucket" that really enjoys the company of medium to very large dogs.

Kodiak is nearly 12 1/2 now & he prefers the company of well trained, well socialized or mature dogs. He doesn't really care for over active young pups that like to play hard.

My adult son Eric helps me supervise the pups. Both of us love to play games, toss balls & do whatever it takes to make your dog feel welcome & loved.

Extensive experience with senior dogs. I love them! I also have experience with shy & timid dogs after being involved with rescue.

I also welcome dogs who are in the early stages of Degenerative Myelopathy. I lost my beloved Angel Girl to this. Dogs with carts or wheelchairs welcome.

Daily walks also thru my lovely neighborhood in La Grange down the hill from Starbucks & Village Hall. (morn, noon & eve)

Medium to large dogs my specialty. Due to the size of dogs I work with I will only host one DV client dog at a time unless they are from the same family. It makes for a better experience for your pet(s). Because of this I do NOT offer a discount for multiple dogs. Your dog(s) receive more personal attention here than places with many dogs in them.

Daily day care is also available for $35/day.

NOTE: If you will be picking your dog(s) up after 4 pm on the last day a regular day care charge of $35 (per dog) will be assessed.

Marge is a true dog lover! I felt completely comfortable leaving my fur baby with her. She has a large fenced in yard for dogs to run and play. Marge sent me text messages and pictures of my pup while we were away, too, which assured me that he was happy and well cared for. I will definitely have Marge watch my pup again!
