My name is Margaret Doub. I love animals and pet sitting allows me to have all the animals I want.
I've worked as a pet sitter since 2004.
My liability insurance is through Pet Sitters Associates.
In 2005 I earned certification from Pet Sitters International. To retain this certification, I continue to educate myself about pet care.
In 2008, I certified in pet first aid and CPR through Pet Tech and received their Pet Saver certificate.
In 2011, I certified in pet first aid and CPR through Red Cross.
I've had dogs, cats, horses, chickens, ducks, goats, turtles, fish, and birds. Currently, I have horses, cats and chickens. Three of the cats are deaf so I've had to learn non-verbal communication.
My family lived next to a large dairy farm in Northville and I helped with their chores for fun. I was a 4-H member and later became a 4-H group leader for kids interested in horses.
I worked at a Thoroughbred horse farm, Red-Bob Farm in Oxford, Michigan, as an exercise rider teaching 2 year-old horses to race.
I worked part-time for over 11 years at Renaissance Morgan Farm, here in Chelsea, Michigan helping their trainer with the care, breeding and training of these beautiful horses.
My German Shepherd Daisy and I received Basic and Intermediate dog obedience certificates from Jeremy Montange, who teaches dog obedience in Chelsea, Michigan.
My husband and I have lived in Chelsea since 1979 and enjoy all that the area has to offer.
I've worked for over 30 years in the computer industry, most recently as a programmer for Ford Motor Company Parts Division. I own a computer consulting business - Marg Doub Computer Solutions.
I volunteer as a severe weather spotter with the National Weather Service in the Skywarn Program for Washtenaw County Emergency Management.
I also volunteer at the Chelsea District Library as a Computer and Public User Support Volunteer. The library named me Volunteer of the Year in 2014.
