Rudy had a wonderful stay with Michelle! She sent me plenty of pictures and updates while we were gone and in those photos Rudy was smiling ear to ear! I completely trust her to watch our pup and will be using her again in the future! :)

Michelle is great! She has watched Chewie for us a few times, and she is always great at communicating and sending updates and photos. She took Chewie on a lot of adventures this weekend, which was great because now she’s worn out! I can tell Chewie had a great weekend.

Never met a dog I didn't love

I've been dogsitting regularly for about 6 years, watching a number of different types of dogs-- old, young, sick, very rambunctious, active, easy-going, dogs with strict diets, dogs with strict training regiments. I've watched up to four dogs at a time.
I have one dog of my own, Bobi, who I actually met through Rover dogsitting and adopted when her former owner had to move out of country. She's a cuddly, gentle 5 year old ...

When Michelle watches your pet

I dog sit because I love dogs-- so your dog will have my full attention when I'm taking care of him or her. We'll go on walks, have focused play time, and do whatever other activities will make your dog engaged, active, and comfortable. There are many parks near me, including a dog park and the Somerville walking path.
