Uschi had A great weekend with Michael. She was happy to see us but didn't seem to be ready to come home when we picked her up! Will definitely ask Michael to watch Uschi again ?

Hi Talia. Uschi is a perfect companion...the best French Bulldog ever! I'm happy to help anytime. Michael

Michael was great. Our 7 month standard poodle, Macklin, required special care after undergoing surgery - including a strict feeding schedule, water restrictions, physical limitations, and medication administration. Michael followed all of the special instructions to a "T", and we felt good knowing that Macklin was in capable hands.

Michael J.
Thanks Kendra. Happy to help with Macklin anytime. All best, Michael

Our puppy Ike was well taken care of at Michael's over the weekend! He was friendly, considerate, and patient. We also appreciated how invested he was in getting to know any details in Ike's daily routine and care. We would happily recommend Michael to watch your dog and look forward to letting Ike play with him again!

Michael J.
Thank you Emma. I look forward to our next visit. Ike is special. Michael
