Michael was AWESOME. He watched our two dogs for a week, staying with them in our home, while we were out of town. They were so very well taken care of! He kept their normal schedule (eating, walks, playtime) and sent us pictures and regular updates about how they were doing, and in particular about some behavior issues we've had with one of our dogs that we wanted his help to keep track of.
