Choosing the Right Dog for You Makes All the Difference!

  • This is a flexible option. A one-time consult of an hour is $80. Maggie will answer all your questions and guide you to make an educated choice for a new dog that is right for you.
  • Some people ask for Maggie to choose a dog for them. This is charged on her hourly rate of $80 for the consult and $50 for each additional hour she searches for the dog for you -includes, calls, internet searches, meeting dogs that you find and are interested in, visits to shelters, etc. You also receive some handouts to make the dog's arrival to your home smooth and prevent simple problems from occurring. 

People can be unknowingly naive when choosing a dog, especially with all the choices available. Adopt from a shelter? Order from a breeder? Purchase from a puppy store? A small breed or large? Male or female? How can you tell if a dog will be a good match for the one you already have? How can you find a dog that will be safe with your children? Maggie can help you make an educated decision that can prevent major problems and a lot of guilt.

"Maggie Marshall is the reason we love our dog so much!  We started training with her from day 1.  She literally came to the shelter and helped us choose the puppy that would become such a huge part of our family.  She had our dog sitting and and following simple, helpful commands after her first visit with us.  Her patience (with us AND the dog) is neverending, and she is a joy to work with.  As a result of Maggie's hard work with Dyson, and her follow through with us, we can honestly say we have one of the very best dogs in JAX." -The Myers Family and Dyson, Jacksonville
