We used Michael’s dog walking services, and he is incredible! He is very patient and I could tell right away that he has a great love for dogs. He will be reliable, communicative, and genuine in his love for your pet. My puppy went from very shy and apprehensive to totally excited to see Michael within a week! Call him-your dog will be happy you did:)

*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. I am also knowledgeable in behavior and discernment of many breeds. I am capable of supervising multiple dogs at one time and regularly had 10-15 dogs in my care at work daily. I also love spending many hours of ...

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.

When Michael watches your pet

I am a very hands-on kind of guy.
I enjoy many different forms of play; whether it be walking, belly rubs, ball throwing or other toys available. I very much enjoy the outdoors and spending most nice days with my dogs outside. I enjoy long walks through the neighborhood and some of the trails here in Roseville. I also understand the needs of some dogs to just relax and spend some quiet time.
My routine is to try my best to accommodate you and your pets needs.
