Michel did a wonderful job with our dogs! She kept us up to date with what was giong on and sent us pictures of the pups on our weekend away. We will definitely use Michel in the future!

Michele was great with our furry four legged crazies. Very prompt and we received photo updates of the happy dogs and cats. I’d recommend Michel to everyone and we’ll look to have her help again very soon!

Your Dog’s Second Favorite Human!

I am a 26 year old grad school student at Rochester Institute of Technology. I have been dog sitting for about 11 years on and off and have learned a great deal through all of my experiences with all sorts of different pups. I have been walking neighbor's and friend's dogs for a few years now and have gotten many jobs from Dog Vacay (which is now Rover). While in college I would volunteer about ...

What Michel would like to know about your dog

Some things I like to learn ahead of time:
- Would you like to schedule a meet-and-greet before the stay?
- What’s your preferred method of communication?
- Does your pup have any health issues that need to be tended to? For instance, dietary restrictions, medicine, or behavior triggers?
- Does your pup like to stick to a given schedule, like regular walks in the morning and evening?
- What does your pup do well around? What does your pup try to avoid?
- What’s the best way to spoil your pup?

When Michel watches your pet

I love to stay active, so exercise will be a big part of any stay with me. I’m happy to get out for plenty of walks during the day as it keeps us both happy and healthy. I’m always ready to go for a walk around the neighborhood or head to any spots that you and your pup enjoy going to. I’m also a member of Cobbs Hill Dog Park in Downtown Rochester, so we also have the option to go socialize with some new friends! I love to take my own dogs there and it’s always a blast; your pup is more than welcome to join us for this particular adventure. I’m also happy to work with pups that are a little bit more on the easygoing side because who doesn’t love just cuddling up and watching Netflix?!
