Michael did an awesome job walking our dogs Frankie and Piglet. Thanks for taking them out for us! They both can't wait to see you again soon.

Best sign that your pup had a good time is when they miss person they were staying with. That’s what happened here. Vegas is still missing Michael and Kira.

We had our puppy boarded with Michael and drop-in service for our cat. Michael did a great job with both of them! We came back to happy, healthy pets. Michael was also very flexible with his scheduling which we extremely appreciated when our flight home got canceled. Very happy with the service and care he provided our pets.

Your Dog's Away-from-Home Friend!

I grew up on a farm with dogs and cats (and chickens, pigs, horses, goats), so definitely have experience throughout my life with animals. I am very experienced with dogs known to be escape artists (huskies), bigger dogs like Labradors, and smaller dogs like pugs and chihuahuas. I absolutely love dogs and their personalities and treat them as nothing less than a family member. Your family member will be sure to be let out often ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

Please let me know of your pup's dietary and physical needs, if any.

Please let me know if your pup has separation anxiety. While I will make every attempt to accommodate your pup, and I live in a very pet-friendly community, I am unfortunately unable to accommodate pups with known separation anxiety that will be disruptive to the community.

Please also let me know if your pup is crate-trained. I provide an extra XL crate so you don't need to provide your own. Crating is used only to provide a safe, calm environment while I am not home. If your pup is perfectly fine not being crated and isn't a "chewer", simply let me know that your pup doesn't need to be crated!

I also provide premium, grain-free food (wet & dry) so you don't have to pack much. Of course, feel free to bring your pup's own food and specify any and all dietary restrictions/requirements.

Lastly, please let me know of your pup's temperament around other dogs. I live in an extremely dog-friendly community so the likeliness of your pup's interaction with other pups of all sizes, ages, and breeds is very high.

Please be sure to view my ASSUMPTIONS about your pup in my ‘About Me’ section. If your pup doesn’t meet these criteria, while I would love to board your fury family member, I am unable to host him if all the criteria are not met (except for food allergies/restrictions).

When Michael watches your pet

Your pup will enjoy lengthy walks around Green Lake Park, up and down Mill Creek Town Center, and hikes if your dog is boarded over the weekend (unless you opt out of this!). All this is weather-permitting, of course. I provide additional safety harnesses and seat belts for your pup while in the car with me. When we walk at nights, your pup will be geared with an LED light for his safety.

I provide plenty of healthy, grain-free treats, peanut butter treats, premium dog treats with quality ingredients that may contain flour and/or wheat and/or grain(s), along with stuffed toys, squeaky balls, ropes, dental chews, pig ears, and hide chews to provide hours of distraction and fun! Treats are also used to reinforce positive behaviors. If your pup doesn't do well with grain, be sure to let me know and I will use only grain-free options with your pup.
