About Michael's Home

When Michael watches your pet

There are some great walking trails and parks all over the city of San Fernando and I will make sure they will walking from 30-45 min each time. I also have lots of toys around the house and the fenced in yard to fetch or chew on. My dogs love to play and chase each other around the house so theres no shortage of doggy fun to be had.
