Michael has two dogs of his own, and it's clear that he loves them very much. He's put a lot of care and effort into raising his dogs, and he is patient and kind with them. Your dog would be in a nice environment with a responsible sitter with him.

About Michael

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

I have been called "Dog Whisperer."

I've been taking care of dogs for my whole life. I've cared for small dogs, big dogs, high-maintenance and low-maintenance breeds, old and young. I also have experience working in a pet food store (Chuck & Don's.) I will take care of a client's dog as if they were my own. When you need someone to take care of your dog, you can rest easy knowing you've found someone who really cares about this line ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences, but need to be warned if the dog is aggressive or is a big puller on the leash.

When Michael watches your pet

I will take dogs on walks around quiet residential areas or in a dog park, if the owner has a preference. I would let the dog out every 2 hours, unless owner specifies a different time. If the dog is older or less active, I'd play fetch, tug-of-war and other fun activities or just pet and scratch its ears for a while.
