Michael is an incredible dog and home sitter! He is very communicative and excellent with dogs. I always come open to Avery clean home and tired pooches from all the exercise Michael provides the dogs. I highly recommend him for house and dog sitting! Please call me if you need reference.

Thank you for this Molly. See you and my fave pups soon. Michael
