Michael was quick to respond and professional. I appreciated him checking in with us to let us know how our fur babes were doing and for keeping things simple.

Michael did a great job taking care of our two dogs. We have a senior dog that required special care and attention to maintain his health and overall well- being. He managed both dogs well. There was good communication back and forth which was very much appreciated! The house was in good shape when we returned. Thank you!!
