Michelle took care of our dogs for a few days. Prior to doing so, she came over and met the dogs. She was very kind. Michelle provided feedback on every visit. I felt comfortable knowing she was looking after them. Thanks Michelle.

Michelle is responsible and kind. My dog just loves her and Michelle asks questions that no other sitter has asked. Who do I call in an emergency? Where are her vaccine records? How does she eat, at scheduled times or on demand?

We are off to a great start with Michelle!

The best care for your best friend

I am a lifelong animal lover who has cared for several special needs dogs for over fourteen years. In that time, I supervised breeds of all sizes with conditions such as diabetes and fractured bones. I understand dogs' unique circumstances and can tailor my services accordingly. I believe that plenty of exercise and playtime are keys to a long and happy pup life!

I am currently the proud mom of an eleven month old Pomeranian ...

What Michelle would like to know about your dog

I am open to breeds of all shapes and sizes! But before pet sitting, it is important for me to know about: (1) medical conditions/special needs; (2) diet restrictions; (3) primary veterinarian information; and (4) emergency contact information. This will help me provide the most effective care possible.

When Michelle watches your pet

I pride myself on providing versatile and accommodating dog care. The extent of our activities will depend upon the dog's energy level and personality, and what their owners can tell me about their likes and dislikes. I maintain an active lifestyle and am able to go on walks of various lengths and terrains. Our walks can be as simple as a stroll around the neighborhood, or we can hit one of the many awesome hiking trails throughout North County. As a Vista native, I am familiar with many "hidden gem" walking paths that will surely pique your furry friend's interest!

In addition to walks, I enjoy keeping dogs active through toy-related games such as fetch and tug of war. I also believe that rewards-oriented games can help keep pups mentally sharp. I am also open to any suggestions their owners may have :-)
