Michael has been a close friend of mine for many years, and I have always been impressed by his skills with animals--particularly dogs. Both with his own and other's dogs he is consistently firm and playful. He is able to strike a great balance between becoming friends with any dog he meets, and reminding them who's in charge. I would feel very comfortable letting Micheal watch my pets. In fact, he's watched my cats (who ...

I have known Michael for years and can tell you that there are few of his breed. He is patient, caring, observant, and truly wonderful with animals. He has been involved with rescue shelters for over a year now and puts his all into it.

Dog lover and Shelter volunteer

Throughout my life, I have had a large family with all kinds of pets; pigs and horses, many dogs and cats, reptiles and rodents. I am very comfortable and proficient with dogs, and would love to get out in my community and help people take good care of their lovely, furry friends, while making a bit of supplemental income.

What Michael would like to know about your dog

When Michael watches your pet

I am happy to take walks longer than the 30 minute standard, and really give your dog the opportunity for some quality exercise. I am as much a fiend for a good game of fetch (or just throw-the-ball-and-chase-it, for dogs who aren't so good at retrieving) as any dog. I am happy to take your dog just around the neighborhood, to a local park, or down to the lake side for a swim and a roll in the sand; whatever you think sounds like a good idea.
