While I'm a bit late submitting this review, I wanted to be sure and share with others how great Michael and his wife are. We had to go out of town unexpectedly when our little guy was only 10 weeks old. Though puppies are A LOT of work, Michael and his wife were sweet, patient, attentive and enthusiastic about taking care of him. I could immediately tell how much the love dogs! They kept me ...

Your loved one welcomed as our own

Lots of love and attention - your loved one may not wish to go.

Near I-70 and 6th Ave for easy access. Pick-up and meet-up also available for your convenience. My pickup/drop-off times are really flexible for you and I'm happy to have you bring your furkid the night before at no additional charge. I recommend a meet & greet so you and your loved one will be comfortable and look forward to their stay ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I am very active in caring for your loved one. Since I do not currently have furkids, they become like my own. This can allow me to care for pets that do not do well with others. It also grants me lots of time for proper their proper attention. I especially like furkids that like to play, settle on the couch for an episode of the TV series dejour or perhaps a Netflix movie while being brushed.

I no longer visit the dog park for safety. I have a fenced area for play and other business.

Sometimes I am hosting your furbaby without other animals. There are occasions when I might accept another guest where I am certain there will be compatibility. I've found that several guests has also been happiness extra for everyone.

My services for sitting in your home are drop-by two or more times per day depending upon you and your furkid's needs. At this time I am not offering services requiring my stay in your residence.

I will get all details needs in advance of the stay. If there are exception conditions, please mention them before booking to make sure I am able to accommodate you and your pet as needed.

-people and animal compatibility and exceptions
-bathroom business habits and cues

-about barking, whining
-about being alone
