We have a twelve year old cat and a one year old German Shepherd that Michael watched at our house for 4 days. I was nervous about leaving the dog with a stranger in the house. My nerves disappeared the first day when Michael texted me an update of the dog. He really described the dogs personality! The pictures helped, too. I knew my dog, and knew that he was OK.

I can run with your dog!

I have experience taking care of dogs and cats and have taken care of animals of my own since I was a child. I have experience taking care of all types of dogs from Cocker Spaniels to Bernese Mountain Dogs, puppies to dogs in their twilight years. I enjoy playing with dogs as gently or roughly as you or your dog prefer, be it fetch, wrestling, tug of war, etc. I am also experienced in ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I have a weakness for Golden Retrievers, as my childhood dog was a wonderful Golden named Chloe. Other than that, I prefer medium to large sized dogs though I am more than happy to care for any sized dog.

I would like to know how and when your dog is disciplined to make sure any training and behavior patterns you want your dog to have remain enforced.

I would also like to know any medical conditions your dog has and any medications they are taking.

When Michael watches your pet

This depends a lot on the needs of you and your dog. For older or less energetic dogs I can be content to just keep them company and provide them with love and attention. For active dogs I can take them to parks, on walks, runs, etc.
