From chihuahuas to giant poodles, dogs seem to gravitate to Michael; they love him! Maybe they can sense his gentle nature and his love of animals. He's responsible, conscientious, and patient, and can be counted on as a caregiver to any pet. Not to mention he knows SF geography really well which comes in handy when finding the best dog friendly parks and streets.

As a lifetime dog dad himself, Michael couldn't be a better dog caregiver. He is passionate about the wellbeing of any and all dogs, while understanding their needs and wants as best anyone can. Not only is his affection and love for his own dogs is a true testimony to his capabilities as a dog caregiver, but their love of him as well (which says even more).

Can't believe I get paid for this!

I am an absolute dog lover — I connect deeply with animals, and really value the time I get to spend dog sitting. I love all animals, especially dogs. I have a passion for wildlife conservation, and I find building relationships with dogs to be very rewarding.

I have experience working with and caring for Poodle mixes, an Irish Wolfhound, Labradors, Malamutes, and Cocker Spaniels. My background also includes professionally caring for an Irish Wolfhound — this ...

When Michael watches your dog

With your permission, I’d love to take your dog to Alamo Square, where he could run and roll in the soft grass. I’ll be home with him during the day, where we’ll hang out and play with his favorite toys, or he could just relax on a doggy bed when he’s tired. Either way, your dog will receive lots of love!

I live in the Alamo Square neighborhood of San Francisco. Dogs and people alike love this neighborhood because of the famous Alamo Square park, with its rolling green hills and fresh air — an ideal place for a pup to stretch his legs. My house is a spacious flat with a fenced-in yard, so dogs will be both safe and comfortable here.
