Michelle is a wonderful caregiver, and I would give her 6 stars if I could! She has a gentle, calm demeanor that's great for nervous dogs, and is very understanding of dogs who have separation anxiety. She took great care of our little Luca and was extremely accommodating to his special needs (of separation anxiety). She also has two well socialized dogs of her own, who are actually a great social anchor for any new ...

Dog Lover w/ Calm Home and Dog Park

Hi there!

My name is Michelle and I am a Bay Area native originally from Marin. Growing up in an animal loving household I have become a huge animal lover and have experience in caring for small to medium sized dogs as well as small exotics like rabbits, birds, and hamsters. I love each and every dog and creature as if they were my own and give individualized attention to each furry pal so that ...

What Michelle would like to know about your dog

Because I currently have 2 small terrier mixes at home I prefer smaller to medium sized dogs (3-25 pounds), plus, my apartment is only so large and therefore want to make sure that each pup has ample space to enjoy his/her time with myself, Watson, and Sherlock.

If your dog has special needs let me know about them as soon as possible. I am happy to accommodate any special feeding schedules, oral medications, walking assistance, separation anxiety, etc. when I can.

And lastly, I do require that all dogs have the rabies vaccine and other standard vaccinations such as
- Parvo
- Distemper
- Canine Hepatitis
- Bordetella
This is for the safety of all the animals in my care including other clients' furry family members. Thank you in advance and we can't wait to meet your fluff ball!

When Michelle watches your pet

At my apartment complex we have a private dog park that your dog will be able to visit several times throughout the day. Additionally, my neighborhood is very dog friendly and a great place for a walk.

If your pup has high energy you can be sure that he/she will get tons of energy out at the dog park, but if your furry pal is more low key then I'll keep it simple with maybe 1-2 dog park visits and then some relaxing indoor fun. I have tons of dog toys and comfy beds to relax in. Of course there are always lots of treats, love, and belly scratches doled out free of charge.
