Michael provided daycare for my pup for 4 days, and did an awesome job! He was very flexible and even kept her late one night when I had plans after work. He sent pics, took her for nice long walks, played a lot and she enjoyed just hanging out with him. It's always a relief not to have to worry about someone new looking after your furry friend, and I'll definitely consider him for future ...

Mike is an exceptional dog sitter! He has watched my Westie multiple times while I was out of town. He would take him on long walks and spend a lot of time with him. My dog always gets to excited when he sees Mike. Overall, would definitely recommend him!

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I would love to know your dogs temperament, likes and dislikes, favorite types of music, any movie genres that your dog won't sit through, and best colors so we can coordinate our outfits. I love dogs of all shapes and sizes, but my apartment will likely not fit anything larger than 50 pounds. Thanks!

When Michael watches your pet

My parks of choice are Central Park and East River Park since I live in Lenox Hill. My favorite game to play with dogs is fetch but I'm also interesting in training dogs new tricks as well. Also, after we get dinner al fresco together I was thinking the doggie and I could go back to my place to watch Netflix and chill.
