I have never boarded my dog, but saw Michael specialized in geriatric dogs, so I took a chance! I am so thrilled with the care Lexie received! Michael was so kind, patient and loving of my old lady. She rarely trusts or responds well to new people she doesn't know. She took to Michael almost right off the bat.

Retired, Dog Lover, Full Time Care

On Capitol Hill, great home for a dog with a roof top dog walk, two parks within walking distance and interesting sidewalks for our walks.
I love to get out and about in the neighborhood taking my four legged companion along with me. I have lived in the same building for six years with my own dog four of those years. After 15 years Teddy's time was done.
I miss taking a dog with me ...

When Michael watches your pet

Two parks I enjoy walking around always on leash walks. If your dog enjoys off leash activities we can easily visit several off leash parks. Most of the time we will walk urban sidewalks. Always on leash.
