About Margo

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a very spacious condo. It is carpeted which I know the arthritic dogs appreciate. I have a large fenced in deck but even better yet is the enormous park just outside of my front door and across the street. My association is very dog friendly. After all the fun is over for the day they can either curl up on their own bed or next to me. Cuddling is encouraged.

Please ask all questions and discuss any special needs before placing a booking request. If a dog is unfriendly with others I need to know before the booking, as I take in multiple dogs from different homes. The safety and happiness of your pet comes first!

Margot was amazing with my two dogs! Both of them have unique needs - one is partially blind and deaf with lots of energy and the other has a permanently stuffy nose. I really wanted them with someone who would treat them as their own. When we arrived at her house, they settled right in, she went above and beyond to provide them a good home, and they came back to me happy and calm. She was also prompt and friendly in all her communication. can't recommend her highly enough!
Very flexible and accommodating. Our Bailey, who is quite anxious, did very well with Margo. He came home and went right back in routine, happy as ever.
Margo was wonderful. We had a great experience and will book with her again. Apollo loved his overnight stay!
I was able to schedule a weekend vacay with Margo on short notice after someone else cancelled on me. She was super responsive which was awesome! My pup had a great time staying with her, and I will definitely book vacays with Margo again in the future!
Pepin loves Margo!
Great as always!
Margo did a great job with my dog. She was friendly and did a great job with his insulin shots. I would use her again anytime.
Margo was very accommodating, allowing my dog Dolly and I to meet her and get accustomed to her place before Dolly's stay. You can tell Margo is a definite animal lover, and I felt confident that my pup would be in good hands!
Margo was a great pet sitter. The dogs we well taken care of and I had a stress free vacation.
It was a great time for my dog. She felt comfortable in Margo's sofa, while she watched some tv.
My dog had a happy time there.
It was an easy experience. Margo did a great job. Highly recommend!!
Pepin loves Margo!
Thanks Margo!
Great host! Pup was pleased, and we were too! Highly recommended!
Margo was great, once again!
Margo's great! Pepin actually ran up to (and in) her door as soon as we got close.
Very good experience for Kado and I. I know he was well cared for because he did not give me trouble after getting home! Other times I left him at home with a sitter staying with him, Kado would wake me several times a night or get into trouble. Kado was very relaxed and happy so I know he was well cared for.
Thank you Margo!
Margo is great! Second time that she took care of my dog. Will return back.
Pepin was well cared for and even got a bath :) We were thankful to be able to leave him with Margo for two weeks while we traveled out of the country. She kept us up to date and we'd certainly trust her with Pepin in the future.
Bea loves her Margo and we love the peace of mind we get knowing someone so kind and knowledgable is caring for our finnicky Frenchie! Thanks Margo!
Margo was a fantastic dog-sitter. I will definitely be using her again!
Margo was great with Pepin! We received updates and a happy, healthy pup upon our return. We'll certainly book with Margo again.
Margo and her sister were great with my labradoodle. They really made an effort to make him feel comfortable and encouraged him to eat, which he usually has trouble with when he's not at home. He also made a couple new doggy friends.
Margo was great with our two beagles, Oscar and Luna! I'll admit that I was concerned about her watching so many dogs at once, but all of the dogs seemed happy and well cared for. Drop off and pick up was easy and Margo answers texts right away.
Margot was great! My pup showed some signs of illness and Margot handled the situation well....luckily it was a false alarm!
fabulous! margo takes such lovely care of our dog while we are away. we are so grateful!
Margo was kind and flexible.
Margo was a terrific sitter for our boxer Zeus for the 5 days we were away. Margo lives in a lovely condo and it may have been a tight squeeze for the three dogs she had for the weekend. Zeus came home happy and energetic - I kind of thought with all the play time he would have been more tired, but he does have a lot of energy to begin with. I would recommend Margo to anyone, but especially smaller dog owners, given the space.
Margo was great with Felix!! She had two other dogs staying with her and was able to keep them all under control. Felix was happy when we picked him up from Margo's house, and had fun with the other dogs. We will definitely be using Margo again the next time we go out of town!!
Fabulous host!! Margo was flexible and dependable, and really enjoyed spending time with our dog. She's wonderful and I'd recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you!
Margo was great! We have already booked her for some other times when we are of of town this summer. She followed right along with our training and gave us some good feedback on other things she noticed as well. The dogs were happy when we got back and seemed in great spirits.

Margo was definitely a great experience for our first time using the site.
Margo was great! So glad we found her to watch our chihuahua Jay Jay, and we will definitely bring him back to her the next time we leave. She was easy to communicate with and flexible on the pick-up and drop-off times. I could tell that she really cares about dogs. It was so comforting to know he was in a home where he got lots of love and attention.
My dog looked calm and healthy when I picked her up. She had a good time at Margo's place.
Overall I think Margo did a great job taking care of Ginger, our 85 lb yellow lab. Ginger came back happy and seemingly un-stressed, definitely a 'home-like' environment and she enjoyed the other dogs.

We were a bit surprised to find 2 other dogs were also staying at the same time upon arrival, had heard about one. It worked out fine, but it did give some concern at first, so I would check on that first next time.
Our two large and energetic dogs are a lot for anyone to handle and I was nervous going with someone's home rather than a boarder. I shouldn't have worried as our first experience with DogVacay was amazing thanks to Margo. She was flexible with setting up a meet & greet despite my hectic schedule, clearly has experience with animals and the dogs immediately warmed to her.

Margo kept in touch throughout the week we were away and sent me adorable pictures of the dogs to let me know they were being well taken care of and loved. We have already booked her for the rest of our December travel and it is a huge relief!

For anyone paying to board dogs at the local Ann Arbor camps (we were Camp Bow Wow regulars), I would strongly suggest giving Margo a try. Less expensive and it brings the same peace of mind as we got from the puppy cams.
Easy pick up/drop off. There is a park near her house where she takes them walking. When the dogs have stayed somewhere they don't like, they give me the cold shoulder for a day to let me know how unhappy they were. There was none of that after their stay with Margo. I will use her again for sure.
Margo is amazing ! I felt so at ease leaving our dog with her while we took a two week trip! He was well cared for and came home happy and tired! I would recommend Margo to anyone! Thanks so much!
Asked Margo to watch our dog for the 2nd time. Went well! She is great :-)
Margo was great with our dog, Nessa. She was very friendly and more than willing to do anything necessary to keep our dog comfortable while we were away. We will definitely be giving Margo our repeat business and suggest you do the same!
