Margie sent us texts and videos of Sophie while we were away. Those little extras go a long way. It is so nice to not have to kennel your furry child while you are away and they get as much love and attention from Margie. We (and Sophie) highly recommend Margie at Doolittle's Doggie Daycare!

Our great danes are like our children and finding someone to care for them in our home, as we do, has always been a challenge. Thanks to Margie we are able to leave them at home and not worry about their care while we are gone. We enjoy our time away with no worries as we know Margie has everything covered and with a lot of love and tender care. We feel so very lucky to Margie!!

Margie is truly a cat whisperer. When she first came to my house to meet my kitties, I warned her that she would not meet my rescue cat Frankie for a while. However, before she left, all three of my cats had come out of hiding to meet her. It was amazing. When we returned from our trip, the cats came to greet us at the door. In the past, they would approach us cautiously. Sometimes it took a whole day before Frankie would venture out from under the bed. Clearly, something different and wonderful occurred during Margie's care, than with our cat's previous sitters. In addition to possessing a gift for calming and caring for animals, Margie is professional, responsible, and reliable. Although I hate leaving my cats when going out of town, I know they are in good hands with Margie. She is the best. Frankie, Freddie, and Stephanie-Samantha rate her five paws out of five.

So I had to send in another testimonial to say that we had Margie come again, and once again, the dogs loved seeing her! When we returned home, we found as always a very detailed "Garfield" greeting card to let us know how the time went. WE have 3 (yes, three) dogs that live in our home and when we leave town, the costs of boarding them can easily break our budget. Besides all that, the girls are sooo much happier in their own home setting. Thanks, Margie! You're the best! Love, Mocha, Gracie and Riley "woof woof"

Our dogs are like our children and when we used to travel it was always stressful leaving them at a kennel. Thanks to Margie we are able to leave them at home and not worry about their care while we are gone. She has made it possible for us to enjoy our time away from home again. The dogs are always happy, exercised and well cared for when Margie is here.

I have two precious dogs that are my babies and I usually board them at a pet spa. Margie came highly recommended and I thought I would give her a try so my girls could stay in their own environment. She was amazing and my girls were happy!!!

Our yellow lab, Duke, loves it when we leave for long weekends or vacation because he gets to see Margie! Margie's communication via texts, phone calls & handwritten notes is both personal & professional. Her compassionate care is evident upon our return as Duke is always in a good mood which was not the case when we boarded him with our vet. Margie also handled an emergency medical issue with ease. Duke is happy with Margie and if Duke is happy, we're happy!

It's now been over a year since my first review for Doolittle's and I continue to be a loyal customer! Margie is loved by my gang, and I have true peace of mind when out of town knowing she's looking after by dogs and fish. Definitely worth every penny!

Best cat sitter I've ever had. Reliable, friendly, great value - and while my cat normally runs & hides from strangers, she just loves Margie. I have no worries when I have to travel. She's fabulous.

1st time in 10 years I've come home to a happy home. Yes, my 6 cats and 2 dogs were happy and content, but the house was as neat and clean as when I left it! No 4 to 6 hours of cleaning up messes; I could just enjoy my babies and rest (after a long drive). I've never had such peace of mind. Margie is heaven-sent.

We feel so lucky to have found Margie. We have 4 dogs and boarding fees are expensive for that many dogs. Plus, 2 of the dogs are over 10 years old and we just didn't want to board them. Margie is great with our dogs and we love that she gives them playtime and lots of attention at her visits. Knowing our pets are in such good hands when we travel has given us tremendous piece of mind. Highly, highly recommended!!

I called Margie when someone I had used in the past was not available. Even though the other service I had used previously was good, there was a marked difference in the service, with Margie coming out far ahead. The reason I say this is that Margie obviously LOVES animals. I think most pet sitters do, but she really takes the time to get to know your pets and she obviously cares about your concerns and worries about being away. She treats your pets as if they were her own. When I had asked her to do something in relation to my cats health, she wanted to research it a bit to make sure it was best for him (it was something I was not totally sure of either). I was very surprised that she did this but also delighted. She also returns calls and e-mails promptly which is wonderful. We did not worry at all while we were away- and usually we get a tiny bit concerned- even with someone who is very good! Margie watched our two elderly cats and spent quality time with them- it was not just a quick check in- she really cared for them just like we would. Margie also referred us to a wonderful dog sitter (who actually keeps the dogs in her home) because we have a boy puppy who needs to be supervised all day. If our dog had been able to get visitations instead of needing 24 hour supervision we would feel very comfortable leaving him with Margie. ABR (Marietta, GA) We will continue to use Margie knowing that our animals are getting top notch car

Margie is my backup when I needed support from my dog boarding business. I also refer her to inquiries for in home visits for dogs, cats and other pets. Caring for pets may not seem to be a too sophisticated kind of task. But it takes characters such as strong sense of responsibility, reliability, honesty, integrity, and creativity to perform such an important task, and most of all, a natural inborn sense of love towards the animals. Margie, who was an insurance professional, possesses all the above qualities and more. I can always trust her with my own dogs and my friends' dogs. My friend's dog, Polly, a high energy Shepherd mix has blossomed into a calmer and more balanced dog over time under Margie' care with regular exercise and proper training. Margie has rescued and helped many dogs and cats in the past. Being in the pet care industry myself, I am very impressed with Margie's ability and experiences with the animals and would recommend any one to utilize her service.

I have two dachshunds and they are calm and happy when I return home. So I know they are well looked after while I am gone. Margie is great....she even went above and beyond while I was out of town she straightened my house so it could be shown by the realtor.....Awesome service. Doolittle's is the best!!

Margie is FANTABULOUS! Yes a new word to describe her! I recently moved to ATL and my 1st trip back to NY had me very nervous because my babies were just getting used to being here and then I had to leave. Margie came to my home and did an assessment of my babies and assured me they would be ok. WELL, what a joy it was when I came home and they were BOTH so calm and happy - Clearly well taken care of and loved in my absence. I will DEF refer Margie's services to others and I am ALWAYS AWLAYS going to use Margie to take care of my babies. She's Simply the BEST, better than all the REST!!!! Thanks Margie - Love Carol, Jazzy and Coco....rrruff!
