About Margaret
About me

I am a mature active single lady who has always had pets (dogs, cats, birds) and couldn't imagine my life without them. I spent 6 months house sitting animals but now would prefer to do the pet sitting in the comfort of my own home, but will do house sitting for reasonable periods of time (not weekends for instance). I am at home most of the time except for golf twice a week. I live in a 4 unit complex with a smallish backyard but with an enormous park (leash free area) at end of street. There are have numerous other leash free parks in the area to add variety and a leash free beach not that far away for those dogs that love the water.

Your pet

Your pooch should be fully vaccinated, house trained and not aggressive. I would prefer small to medium sized dogs to look after but larger dogs, as long as not too boisterous, are fine too. I would look after your pooche/s as if they were my own - give them lots of cuddles, play time and walks.

I will send regular updates and photos to keep you informed and will abide by your wishes at all times.

I adhere to all Covid-19 regulations and sanitise the house after each visit.

I look forward to giving your animals the attention they deserve.

As always Marg takes wonderful care of Luna. She’s come home happy and tired, she slept the car ride home and is already curled up in her bed snoozing

Marg was brilliant with our boys, I'm not sure they wanted to come home. Thanks Marg, it was so comforting to know our boys were well looked after. Looking forward to seeing you again, love Mack & Munro, oh and their hooman parents
