I am glad I have found Michael. It was
comforting to know that my 15wk old pup was well taken care of while we were away. The picture updates were great. Will definitely be using Michael again.

We are so happy to have found Michael to watch our dogs!! At Michael's house they get loving care, long walks and lots of attention. It's truly home away from home. They actually pull to get into his house when we drop them off because they can't wait for the fun to begin:) Additionally, Michael's flexibility with drop off/pick up is fantastic.

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.
