My name is Marsha Wheaton and simply put, I love animals! I earned a B.A. from the University of Michigan-Flint and an M.A. from Michigan State University, and previously enjoyed a 12-year career in human resource management that took me across the country. A Michigan native, I moved to Traverse City in 2002 to fulfill a lifelong dream and be near my family. These days I share my home with a spirited Schipperke mix, Yogi, and a handsome tuxedo cat, Pagi.
I started my pet sitting business, Dog Mom at Your Service! in March 2004 and truly love my work with pets! I gained invaluable experience volunteering with various shelter/rescue groups, working part-time at a local boarding kennel and at Happy Tails Doggie Daycare. Yogi and I successfully completed several obedience courses through Humane Train and enjoyed some agility classes at Pine Meadows as well. I am a member of Pet Sitters International and founder of the local group Pet Sitters Network North. I am bonded and insured and trained in pet first aid. My references will tell you that I am reliable, trustworthy, intelligent and provide them peace of mind.
