Mike took great care of our pooch, Archer. He’s very attentive and sends daily updates so you can see what your dog is up to. He also gave Arch some of his homemade food after he wasn’t eating and Arch ate it right up. I highly recommend him and we know Arch is in good hands when we’re away. Thanks, Mike!!!

We were very happy to see that Mike clearly loves dogs. He is a reliable communicator and observant caretaker. Our dog was immediately comfortable with him and his dog Archie. We would use him again.

My home is 100% dog friendly. Dogs are ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I am most concerned with a dog's size and temperament. My home is an ideal environment for non-aggressive dogs under 40 lbs.
