Michelle is an outstanding pet sitter and consistently took fantastic care of our wildly enthusiastic golden retriever and two shy cats. She is super responsive and provided frequent updates and pictures (our dog looks over the moon in every single one). It was always a relief to know that our pets and home were in such thoughtful and responsible hands, and that we would always return to a house in better condition than we left ...

Michelle is a great dog sitter! She took care of my 3 pitties 5 times over the past year. My dogs loved her. She sends updates and lots of pictures everyday. She's caring, dependable and very accommodating even on short notice. Thank you Michelle for taking such awesome care of my furbabies in my absence.

Dog-loving graduate student

I am a reliable graduate student and former teacher who misses spending time with dogs. Unable to keep pets in my apartment, I would love to provide companionship for your dog while you are away. I have experience dog-sitting (both large and small breeds) and am able to feed, bathe, walk, and play with your dog. I love being around animals and hiring me as your dog sitter would benefit you, me, and your dog ...

What Michelle would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs, but I am particularly fond of all Bull Dogs, Basset Hounds, Shepherds, Labs, and all miniature dogs. Basically, I enjoy being around all dogs, from Mastiffs to Chihuahuas! I have experience sitting dogs that are very laid back, high-energy dogs, and dogs with separation anxiety. I have also sat multiple dogs at a time and dogs that live with cats. I love going on long walks and am able to take your pet running, if that is something they do! *I am sensitive to the special needs of rescue dogs and have cared for dogs who have been traumatized.
