Michael was a great sitter for my dog Shannon! He was responsive and personable from the get go. He stayed at my place for 6 days, sent daily updates and lots of pictures. It was wonderful returning home to a happy and calm dog. I would definitely have Michael take care of Shannon again. I recommend him highly!

Michael is absolutely incredible with my 9 year old dog, Darby. Darby absolutely loves when he comes over as Michael gives him tons of attention.

Michael is also very responsible. Darby is diabetic and Michael is able to attend to his insulin injection needs. Michael has stayed multiple days at my home to take care of Darby when I've been out of town.

If your furbaby is looking for a new buddy and great caregiver ...

Michael is my go-to guy to dogsit my corgi Edie when I have to leave town. He is very comfortable doing overnight stays, either at his own apartment or mine. He is incredibly responsible, clean, and kind! I would recommend him to anyone confidently and my dog absolutely adores him!

Since moving to Chicago 3+ years ago I've watched a lot of dogs for family and friends. I've taken care of ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

If possible I always prefer to meet the dog and their owner before taking care of them. I want to get to know their personality and quirks so I can make them feel comfortable with me the best that I can.
