This was the best experience we could have hoped for. Michele is kind and loving and great with dogs. We were immediately comfortable leaving our puppy with her. Through our current and previous dog we have used a variety of different services, ranging from boarding to home sitting. This was the best experience of them all. Michele has changed our views on traveling now and we look forward to taking more trips and leaving our ...

Michele was great! Our two pugs had a blast staying with her. We've previously used a kennel for boarding, and this was so much better. They were all smiles when we came to pick them up! She sent pictures and updates frequently. Will definitely use her again!

Forest Hikes and Cuddles!

I've been a Rover sitter since 2013. I have a fenced backyard, a large home, and lots of love to give to your dog! I live with my family and my resident Shih Tzu, who rules us under her little paws. I also regularly foster small dogs with a local rescue. I love to take my dog hiking in our local forest preserves in my spare time, and I’d love to bring your dog ...

What Michele would like to know about your dog

-How is your dog with strangers and other dogs?
-Has your dog been boarded before, and how did it go?
-Any current medications, allergies, or injuries
-Proof of Rabies vaccine, Bordetella, and DHLP Vaccines. Must be on flea & tick prevention.

I don't have any breed preferences (love them all), but my dog prefers submissive dogs. Dogs that also want to be "the boss" may not get along with her. Dogs I board must be dog-friendly and human-friendly. Due to having small dogs in my home, I cannot board any dog breed with a strong prey drive.

When Michele watches your pet

We'll take our walks through my beautiful neighborhood, where there are lots of trees to sniff and squirrels to chase! I'm a 5 minute drive from the Bemis Woods Forest Preserve, which is full of nice walking trails. I love to take guest dogs for hikes, with owner permission/request.

I like to incorporate your dog in my activities and keep them happy and engaged, including playtime inside and outside, and running around in the fenced backyard with the other pups. I am well-stocked with toys and tennis balls!
