Kacey has stayed with Michelle twice now. He comes back happy and tired from enjoying the fields to run in with his buddies! I highly recommend Michelle for overnight care for your dog.

Michelle has been such a big help with the care of our dog the past few weekends when we’ve been out of town. I feel really good leaving flo in the hands of such a responsible and experienced dog sitter. Michelle is an excellent communicator and even sends photos from the day which is icing on the cake! I highly recommend Michelle’s services.

Dogs get to run on private acreage!

I have been a professional pet sitter and dog walker in Seattle since 2005 specializing in group off leash adventures. I just moved back to Bellingham to be closer to home and family. I went to school to be a veterinary assistant at Bellingham Technical College in 2003. I have worked in the pet industry since 1999. I have two years experience teaching dog obedience classes. I have owned and worked with all types of ...

What Michelle would like to know about your dog

What age/ breed is your dog? Do they get along with all other dogs they meet? Have they finished getting all their vaccinations? I can only accept fully vaccinated pups for day care over 4 months in age. If over 9 months in age are they spayed or neutered? If not, have plans to do so? All day care pups over 9 months must be spayed or neutered. I will not confirm services until after I have met you and your pup for the first time.

When Michelle watches your pet

I provide pick up and drop off from your home and take day care and boarding pups to a 3/4 acre private dog park on my family farm in Whatcom county. We spend our days playing fetch or going for hikes on our 7 acres. Plus plenty of snuggle breaks! Then I bring your pup home tired and happy.
