When I've had to go out of town and my family hasn't been able to watch my Golden Ret. 'Lance', I've had Michael watch him for up to a week at a time. His yard and fenced areas are more than enough room for playtime, and communication is always a breeze. Thanks Mike!

I have known Mike for over 8 years and has always had dogs of his own in his own. He adopted a litter and fostered them during hurricane Katrina, and recently rescued his loved Basset Hound, Glenn. He's caring to all dogs, and someone you can count on to take care of your loved one while you need a sitter. I highly recommend him and can vouch for his services.
