Always ring him and his sister to take care of my pugs when I’m traveling for business or when I have to stay late at the office. He’s very trustworthy and reliable, even enough to know where my spare house key is in case of a pet emergency. Never had an issue with Mike and have been using him for over 4 years.

Michael V. took care of my dog when I was away for vacation in the caribbean. My rescue dog who is normally afraid of and dislikes everyone was very comfortable around him from the start. Michael sent me daily photo updates of them doing fun activities together and of him spoiling my dog with treats. I can definitely say that he was one of the best pet sitters I’ve hired and is a wonderful ...

No Ruff Days Here :)

Out of town for a few days and need someone to look after your beloved pets? At work and need someone to check-in with those puppers? Look no further.

I have experience working with various kinds of animals and am particularly in love with taking care of dogs. I am very friendly, patient, caring and non-smoking. At home I have two of my own little Shih Tzus, aged 11-years young, who I raise as my ...

What Michael would like to know about your dog

I am particularly interested in their daily routines(such as walking and food), current health status, behavioral tendencies, etc of your pet that will allow me to be well-equipped to do the very best to ensure your puppy receives the best visit.

I have no breed of preference; all dogs are amazing. I am athletic and can make sure your dog gets all their energy out if needed. Additionally, I currently weigh in at 190lbs which allows me to take care of highly energetic, bigger dogs.

If you would be so kind, when making a request please let me know all the specifics you need. This may include your rough location (nearest cross streets), arrival time and the time you would like me to stay until. This makes everything clearer and easy to follow for everyone; I would hate to disappoint!

Lastly, always inform me if there are any special circumstances that are needed for your pet and I will ensure I take all the precautionary measures.

When Michael watches your pet

Your pet and I will take long walks to the park, making pit-stops at every grass spot in sight! If you're dog happens to enjoy friendly bonding activities (like fetch or hide and seek), please let me know and I will make sure I take a little extra time out of my day to play with them. Knowing that your dog is happy makes me equally happy.
