Stephanie Hamilton

Stephanie began pet sitting and dog walking after graduating from Bergin College of Canine Studies in 2008.  In the past, she has been a volunteer with Therapy Dogs International and hopes to be again in the future. 

Stephanie understands the importance of owners feeling confident with whom they trust with their dogs and homes and she wholly enjoys caring for them as if they were her own. 

 Especially with puppies I like being able to continue to teach and positively reinforce the dog manners they already know or are learning.

When she is not busy with other people's pups, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband and two year old dog, Lady.  Her interests include dog training, animal assisted therapy for children, and wildlife rehabilitation.

Joe Marshall

Joe is Maggie's son. He is seventeen and a home-schooled Junior this fall. He has worked at Bent Creek Golf Course as a cart cleaner and after just a few months was put in the Pro Shop because his boss said, "He is good with people."

After a year, Joe became bored with his job and asked is he could work for MMDT. Maggie jumped at the chance to train her son in her trade and introduce him to running a business. His role is as an assistant, a Sitter, and whatever else needs to get done. Joe is a minor, but is responsible and trustworthy. He plays competitive baseball and is an avid and super talented golfer, as well as a car buff. Joe really has been around dogs his whole life and has learned quite a lot from living with his mother, the trainer.

We will help you choose the package that best suits your situation and schedule a meet and greet. Maggie and a Sitter will come to your home for an initial consultation to meet you and your dog(s) and get familiar with your particular needs. The consult is $25, whether you hire us or not.  

 

Who you leave your dog with matters to the well-being of your dog, the safety of your home and your ability to relax while away.

 

Maggie is 100% reliable. If you make a reservation for the care of your dog, Maggie will be there. She is the ultimate dog whisperer. ALL dogs love Maggie. I can enjoy time away from home knowing my sweet pet is receiving the best f care. It is very important who you trust to care for your dog and keep her sage while you are away. Maggie Marshall has provided care for my dog for over two years. Not only does she provide the basic needs of my dog, she also meets her mental and exercise needs as well. I receive daily updates and photos and/or videos that ease my mind knowing that my dog is happy while I am away. Sometimes I think my dog loves Maggie more than me, which is the ultimate compliment. -Jackie
