About Maggie

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, welcome to Maggie's pet services. Im hopeful that I can assist you with whatever you may need!

I'm currently a full time zookeeper at the Fort Wayne Children's zoo. My schedule most weeks is Sunday through Thursday 730 am to 4pm with the option of an hour lunch break around 1130. I am an experienced animal trainer, currently training a variety of animals daily including sea lions, ducks, and even capuchin monkeys. I take care of an even wider variety than that. I care for animals in all stages of life and medical needs. You can rest easy knowing I have many years of professional animal care experience under my belt. I love bringing my zoo knowledge to pet care.

I am no stranger to a difficult dog. I had a very loveable, grumpy, old Jack Russell terrier who I've recently lost. However, I currently have no pets. This makes me very flexible in accommodating your needs. My dog never got along with other animals and finding people to watch him was stressful for me. Let me take that stress away from you!

I adore animals and have dedicated my life to them. If you have dog you can't bare to put in a kennel or if you just need some training advice or someone to give your pet a little walk. I'd love to help out! I prefer to stay in your pets home and am flexible on rates! Don't be afraid to contact me to set up a meeting or get a quote for your vacay!

My pup was the only dog at Maggie's & he loves the extra attention! With her experience as a zoo keeper and pleasant attitude I felt confident she would take great care of my dog, which she did.
Our dogs loved Maggie!
No complaints! We'll use Maggie again!
Watched by 2 year old Papillon that I had never been apart from, very patient with her
Maggie was and excellent sitter. I had no worries about leaving my dogs with her. I woul recommend to anyone that wants a very professional and wonderful sitter.
Maggie was the best! She boarded Yuma, a 1.5 year old Basenji with loads of energy and personality for a few night. She knew exactly how to handle Yuma and soon they were BFF's. She was so attentive to every detail regarding how to care for Yuma. She sent pix and text updates frequently which was so thoughtful! Super responsive and really easy to work with. She inspired confidence and we'll definitely schedule with her again!

Maverick had a wonderful time staying with Maggie for the last few days. She played with him a bunch, gave him ear medicine twice daily for a recent ear infection, and even came home during breaks at work to check on him. We got plenty of updates of him having a blast with her so there is no doubt he will be sad to come home! I would be very comfortable having her watch him again and recommending her to others!

Maggie was super sweet and extremely professional. We booked her to stay with our two dogs in our home. Our boys loved her and we will definitely be booking with her again!
