We were extremely impressed with Michael as he was reliable, reasonable, professional, and caring to our doggies, Chex & Forrest! It was our first experience with Rover, Michael. Honestly, we were a bit nervous but Michael put that to rest quickly with updates and pics of our boys during his house sitting visits. We will definitely be using him again in the future and will be highly recommending him to others. ??

Dependable and flexible.

I love working with dogs so much that caring for them is my full time job! I began working with dogs at the MSPCA animal shelter in Massachusetts. In my 2 years of volunteering I gained a lot of experience working with dogs including walking, feeding, administering medications, training, and helping in behavior analysis.

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I usually try to cover everything in the initial meet and greet but I like to know the following about the dogs that I take care of:

Are they reactive to other dogs or people?
Do they have any special needs or medical conditions that I should be aware of?
How are they on walks?
What's their favorite spot to go on a walk?

I don't have any breed preferences but I do have a soft spot for pit bulls!

When Michael watches your pet

I will take your dog to their favorite park! If your dog is used to running or needs to play with toys to burn energy then I can do that as well.
