Our dog was very well taken care of by Michael and his family. They definitely treated her as their own! Each day she would go on a couple walks, and he sent pictures and updates, which made us feel better. We appreciated all the effort they put into making her stay comfortable! My only word of caution is for people with dominate dogs because Michael's dog has a dominate personality and can clash with dogs ...

We love every dog like family!

I literally grew up with a dog who was my best friend and family member. I took care of her until I could not any longer. Every day was not considered dog sitting but rather hanging out with family. That's the same philosophy and mentality that we deliver to your dog(s)!

We understand that your dog is more than just a pet and that we treat everyone's dog as if it were our own ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about the dog's personality, any food or event aggressions. (Aggressive behaviors will not rule out the dog from staying with us! Just like a heads up) Medical issues or special care needs. Potty trained? Lastly, what the dog loves to do.

When Michael watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
There are a few routes that we take the dogs on walks. One route is a 45 min around the perimeter of our housing development walk. Another is a 1 hr 30 min walk to the local park and playtime there as well. The park is a large open grassy turf area. The last route consists of going to Salisbury Park and can range in time from 1 to 2 hours.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog will sleep inside. We can crate the dog at night if your prefer.

Time I'll spend with your dog
There is someone at home 24/7. Your dog will never be without care and supervision.
