*The Dogfather* Whispering to All

I was a kennel technician at a dog and cat boarding Resort for over nine years, from 2007 to 2016. I am versed in the care, feeding and medication ( including injections) of many breeds of dog.

What Michael would like to know about your dog

All breeds welcome! (1-40lbs)
Just that they are people friendly and hopefully dog friendly but that is not a requirement. Any and all special needs including medication, allergies, disabilities etc...

❌ I do ask a daycare fee for any dogs "boarding" who extend their pick-up time 5 hours or more past their drop-off time.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
