How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

I have been with dogs my entire life. Currently I have three well behaved rescue dogs that help me with training and are my trusted companions. In my spare time I am a yoga teacher so the dogs are calm, balanced and focused. The perfect dog.....

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

Is the dog spayed / neutered? Good with other dogs? Special diet or needs?

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Always ready with my jeep wherever they need to go.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

All medications are fine with exception to injections. That might be out of my league....

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

As much as necessary...When not training dogs I am teaching yoga classes which do not keep me away for any extended length of time.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

I live in mountain terrain that is fully enclosed and great for walking and hiking adventures. Never a complaint.

Where will my dog sleep?

The dogs have their own room inside the house where they are calm and rested.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

Are you willing to do additional tasks at my home while I'm away
(e.g., water plants, bring in the mail)?

Let me know and I will see if I can accomodate.

Dio

Age: 7 years, 3 mo. old
Weight: 65 lbs.
Breed: Chow Chow

(Di’o in the Italian language) Dio is the Roman name given to a singular being in theistic and deistic religions (and other belief systems) who is either the sole deity in monotheism, or a single deity in polytheism.

Dio is a Chow Chow lost and misunderstood in his previous homes. His days were numbered on this planet until Michael and the pack of
YogaDogs came to his rescue.

Mojito

Age: 5 years, 9 mo. old
Weight: 25 lbs.
Breed: Cairn Terrier

(Mo’xito in the Spanish language) takes his name from the root Mojo and the suffix -ito.
Mojito is the youngest assistant teacher at YogaAbove born in the Summer of 2008. A sprightly young Terrier who knows how to bring out the yoga before the mat is rolled out. His favorite pose it paw to nose and is always eager to practice the partner pose of nose to nose if you get close enough. A greeting caress is all he needs and he will be more than happy to play all day.

Coba

Age: 6 years, 3 mo. old
Weight: 25 lbs.
Breed: Chihuahua & Miniature Pinscher

(Cobá in the Spanish language) takes her name from the large ruined city of the Pre-Columbian Maya civilization.

Descended from a lineage in Chihuahua, Mexico and fathered by a masterful Roman Rottweiler from the West, she is the protector of her mate Mojito. Her light was too bright for her previous owners to understand and was sadly abandoned on the side of the road.

Luckily she found a home in a shelter where she was cared for until Mojito arrived to claim his mate.

She is strong willed and will sniff out the yoga upon your arrival. Approach with confidence and trust your intentions and she will be your partner in yoga too. Doubt your own intentions and she will be the first to let you know.

My dog, Jack, had the best experience when he stayed for 6 days with Michael and his 3 dogs. First, Michael is a nice likeable gentleman. Michael did a great job introducing Jack to the pack and the new environment. Michaels home is clean and tiddy. Jack was wagging his tail as we left, and it was still wagging when we came back. Jack is a highly energetic 17 month-old German Shepherd boy and needs attention, affection and exercise to remain in a calm state. Jack was as a calm as I have ever seen him when we picked him up at lunch after his 6 day stay, and he remained so for the rest of the day. So, I am sure that he was well cared for in everyway by Michael. Michael kept us updated with daily pics of Jack. We felt confident our dog was being well cared for, so our vacation was made even more pleasant without the worry. We highly recommend Michael. (Collapse)
