Michael was great. Our dog seemed to do really well there. I will use him again for sure.

Michael was absolutely AMAZING!!!! He sent pics and videos while I was away and even left her a bone and a ball when he dropped her back off. I gave him the whole bad of dog food and when I returned I noticed that he separated the food out into ziplock bags so it wouldn’t get stale. This attention to detail takes customer service to a whole new level. He also gave Harlow a bath ...

Michael did a wonderful job caring for our dog. He sent pictures and updates daily and I knew she was in great hands. I’m sure we’ll use him again and I would highly recommend him to others.

Dogs Loved Here!

Dogs love to give lots of Liquors.
My last dog Dallas lived a long time. He was 16. I'm finally getting over his departure. I sure miss dogs and in fact I would not mind having one around again. I am not ready for a full-time commitment, but a stay-over pet right now would be just right.

Before Dallas, I have had many dogs. Once, I trained my dog Max to run in obstacle course ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

Let me know if your dog is not good with other dogs, kids, etc..., or if it is not house broken, or has other behavioral issues. I prefer calm dogs as this is a sign they were trained right.

When Michael watches your pet

I mostly use positive reinforcement, but on rare occasions I will use some minor negative reinforcement, especially when a dog will not walk on a leash, often negative reinforcement is the best way to leash break a dog, such as a quick tug backwards with the voice command "don't pull." After a while they learn "don't pull" pretty quickly. I only apply negative reinforcement mildly, and only if needed.
