We used Michelle for years to care for my dog Duke. Duke was a very energetic greyhound mix who loved long walks. Michelle was great at burning off his extra energy. She was dependable and took great care of our dog. She was very flexible, when our flight was postponed due to weather, she accommodated our schedule change. My daughter loved that Michelle would text us pictures of our dog while we were gone. We'd ...

What Michelle would like to know about your dog

I am open to all breeds of dogs. Although there is a strong mention of participating in activities best suited for medium to large breeds, I do take care to "tone them down" for the smaller breeds.
I am a strong person for my stature, so very large and strong dogs do not intimidate me. Quite the opposite, I LOVE them! However, if they are not leash-trained, please let me know what is there comfort level while on a leash.
Please be sure to let me know if any human, dog, cat, or food aggression is present, or has been displayed on recent occasion, so I am able to make sure everyone is safe during my visit.
If there are strict limitations on activities, please note that with your inquiry for service.

When Michelle watches your pet

I am adventurous and high-energy by nature and for that reason, when I have dogs with me, the day just got exponentially better!
Depending on where the dog lives will depend on what sort of walks or adventures we will embark on. Depending on the comfort level, health, stamina and general overall physical fitness of the dog, will determine the nature of the activities we do together.
Some of the favorite places are the beach or moderate hiking, walking or biking trails.
The activity chosen will highly depend on the time of year and the temperature outside. Under no circumstance are dogs taken out for activity in a high heat or humidity index. Nor are they left in the car. I take each and every animal's safety very seriously. For that reason, you can feel confident and reassured they will always be safe on whatever adventure we have that day.
Some days, the best adventures are cuddled up on the couch (or the floor if the furniture is off limits of course).
