About Margaret

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi we're Margaret & Frank and we can't wait to meet your pup! Frank has always had dogs, but when we adopted our dog, 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. Our goal is to provide the best structured, fun, and loving environment for your dog. We've learned a lot in the time we've been pet sitting and have had a lot of success introducing new dogs to each other and creating a safe, comfortable, and low stress environment for all our guests. 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.

Oct 2016
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!

I felt comfortable leaving my furbaby with them and that they sent wonderful photo updates with how she was doing the whole weekend. It gave me great peace of mind. :) My baby also loved playing with her puppy Cricket :)
Margaret gave our (9yo) pup great care over two weeks. It's hard to leave a family dog in others' care for that long, but Margaret was great to work with and was fantastic about sending pictures and notes to tell us how our dog was doing. It really helped me enjoy our vacation knowing that Rosie was having a nice vacation of her own.

Margaret did a great job of providing daily exercise opportunities for Yuki. I appreciated the daily photos she sent showing my happy dog!
