About Margaret

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi I'm Margaret and I can't wait to meet your pup! My husband and I recently moved to Idaho Falls with our dog Cricket. My husband has always had dogs, but when we adopted Cricket 2 years ago I hadn't had much experience on my own. I was determined to provide the best life for my dog and immediately started working with professional trainers in group and individual settings as well as doing a lot of research on my own. My goal is to provide the best structured, fun, and loving environment for your dog. Cricket loves to play with every dog she meets and would love the chance to make friends with your dog! We have a shared fenced yard, but are also very active and go on frequent walks, runs, and trips to the dog park. We are even willing to take your dog on hiking adventures with your permission! When your pup stays with us there will be no shortage of pictures/videos and communication of how your dog is doing. We know leaving your dog is hard (it is for us too!) and we want to provide the most stress free experience for you and your dog. We are happy to make any special accommodations, please just let us know exactly the care your pup needs.

Margaret is extremely committed to gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to provide the best possible care for her own dog and others. She also has worked with a personal trainer to enhance these skills. She demonstrates patience, love, and attentiveness when interacting with her own dog and others. She loves to play with and interact with dogs and has taken the initiative to learn how to effectively establish herself as the leader. A notable example is when she brought her dog home for the holidays. She was staying with our parents and their older dog is not used to being around other animals. There was initially a lot of barking and whining, but Margaret quickly stepped in. Within five minutes both dogs were lying down calmly and were able to coexist with one another for the rest of the two week visit.

Margaret rescued her dog Cricket in 2015 and she is passionate about being a responsible pet owner. She has invested many hours in learning best practices for training and caring for Cricket and her efforts are very evident. Cricket is well behaved and loves to play with other dogs through regular visits to the dog park and pet friendly establishments. Margaret loves to meet and network with other dog owners. Her positive interactions with other private pet sitters has inspired her to share her love for dogs by offering private pet sitter services herself. I highly recommend her.

Margaret is such a great dog mom, that anyone would be fortunate to have their fur baby cared for by her! I have two fur babies, a golden retriever and bernese mountain dog, and they LOVE Margaret and her pup, Cricket. Margaret is extremely knowledgable in positive dog behaviors, and is patient while training and interacting with other dogs. Your dog will have such a wonderfully fun time with Margaret that they won't want to leave!

Absolutely wonderful! We were so pleased with the communication that Margaret provided. She kept us informed with messages, pictures, and a video which made us feel much more at ease with leaving our four month old puppy. We will not look for anyone else to keep when we are away!
Let me just save you the trouble of looking around and stop right here at Margaret's profile. From the initial contact until final pickup, she was very responsive and answered all our questions. We even were allowed to stop by her place before hand to introduce our little dog to her atmosphere. She was so kind to our dog and took care of her as if it was her dog. We received updates via text from Margaret along with pictures of our doggy while we were away. It was so nice knowing our little one was in good hands. I would highly recommend Margaret to any one of our friends. Overall great experience. Highly recommend Margaret.
Margaret is great, she was very flexible on timing and our pup had a great time playing with the resident pup!
Margaret was awesome!! My fur baby was well cared for had a wonderful time:) She was great with communication and sending photos. I would definitely book a Vacay with her again!! Than you!!!
Really great experience. Will definitely use them again.
Can we just say Fabulous! This was our first time leaving Baron with anyone besides family. To say we were nervous, was an under statement. We could not be more thrilled. Daily photos daily messages and updates without me even asking. Margaret made us feel at ease and took care of our Baron, honestly better than us I think! We would highly recommend her to anyone and will definitely be using her again! Baron I know loved his new play friend! Thank you again!!!
Margaret was so easy to work with and went out of her way to make it easy and convenient to both drop off and pick up our dogs. Margaret was always easy to reach and always responded to me right away, so I never had to worry. The dogs were well cared for and made part of their family while we were away! I will happily board my pets with Margaret again if we ever need too! Thanks so much!!
