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 and my 4 hours volunteering at the RSPCA Peacedale shelter. 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 look forward to giving your animals the attention they deserve.

Our Buster boy had a lovelytime with Marg we were more than impressed with her kind calm and confident way she was with our most precious boy. I would most definitely have Marg look after Buster again

Margaret was wonderful and very accommodating when we needed to bring forward drop off time. Loved getting the updates to say all was going well and found our dogs were relaxed and happy when we picked them up.

Ezzie loved staying with Margaret. Marg also kept us updated on how Ezzie was going, which was great. We will definitely use Marg’s services again. Thanks Marg!
