We've used Michael S. as a pet sitter (cats and dogs) for years. Our dogs tend to have special needs (for example: senior dog with daily medicine, newly adopted blind dog who is adjusting to his new home, elderly dachshunds who can't maneuver stairs very well). Michael cares for them all with compassion, giving them ample exercise, regular bathroom breaks, and lots of love. He also shares photo updates and offers prompt communication. I highly ...

Mike has been an excellent caretaker for our pets over the years. We have elderly dogs -- one that always needed a lot of extra TLC, and tracking a lot of pills. Most of the time for a weekend, but occasionally for up to a week or more.

Leaving our fur family in the hands of Mike always gave us peace of mind. He's excellent.

Dependable & Honest

I have had dogs in my home since I was a child. Currently I am unable to have a dog in my apartment and so I would love to spend some time with yours! I’ve been dog sitting for over 5 years and love it. I’ve looked after both young and old dogs and will cater my care to their needs. I can walk dogs of all sizes no matter the breed. I’m available for ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I would like to know your dog’s general demeanor, any quirks or special things I should be aware of and whether or not they are on a flea prevention regimine. Also let me know what treats they love and how well they are on leash.

Can provide daily exercise

I will take your dog to a park if nearby or just stroll around the neighborhood if there isn’t. We’ll play fetch or just walk around and smell things, whatever they feel like doing. I will, however, not let them off-leash in open areas or situations where they could escape. My priority is keeping your dog safe and making sure they get back home happy.
