Awesome dog sitter. Made sure to update us with pictures. Picked up and dropped off on time and with notice. Was willing and able to watch our big boy (Cane Corso). He came back home very well taken care of and happy. Definitely recommend leaving your pups with Michael.

He responded to my last minute request very quick. I felt that he was very professional and been doing this for quite sometime.

Thank you again for accommodating and caring for Hobbes very last minute.

Picked up my dog today, from boarding over Christmas, 5 days. I also just got home from the vet, $200, with another visit this weekend.

It seems our dog was not watched well and then was hurt for for who knows ...

We try very hard to satisfy every pet parent who trust us with the honor and responsibility of caring for ...
