We are extremely excited to have met Michael, and were put at ease by his kindness, fast communication, and comfort with dog behaviors and how to best manage / hang out with Murph. We've already rebooked for an upcoming stay as well!

Michael was AMAZING! He was like the dog whisperer with our boys. We have a 6.5 year old Siberian Husky & a 2.5 year old Black Lab - big rowdy boys! And Michael handled them like a champ! He was so dependable and gave us frequent updates while we were gone. I completely trusted him with our dogs, and was so grateful to have him there. One night, our husky had an upset belly ...

Life-long dog rescuer and trainer!

Hi, I'm Mike! I've worked with animals for my entire adult life. Whether it's a reactive rescue Australian Cattle Dog, or a happy, lumpy Gordon Setter, I've known them all!

I'm happy to help with your daily walks, check-ins and to make sure your pup has a safe person to count on while you're out and about.

And, if you'd like a few tricks, tips and guidance on keeping your dog happy, healthy and fulfilled ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I'm very able to walk into any situation no matter the disposition of your dog. However, an honest description of things that can scare or upset him/her would be helpful. And, if there are behaviors or tricks you'd like to work on, please let me know and we'll prioritize those! of course, if you'd prefer no behavior training help, that's fine too! Going for an easy walk is great fun as well.

When Michael watches your pet

I use Google Maps to help find good trails that take the full time allotted for our walks. You'll always have access to our paths, but we'll make certain your pup gets the full exercise she/he needs.

We'll also work on a few tricks or behaviors at your direction. This can be simple, fun tricks like learning to walk backwards, or more serious behavior training such as reactive behavior toward other people/pets.
