Michelle is quick to respond and is very detailed in timing for pick up/ drop off and has been very accommodating to our crazy schedules. This is our second rebook with her and we will be booking again!

Very flexible with times to drop off and pick up. My lab is always tired when she gets back compared to boarding. She’s an amazing caretaker!

We love dogs!!

Going out of town? We want to watch your pooch! My husband and I have 28 combined years of experience with dogs, and love all sizes, large to small. We worked with a non-profit dog rescue organization in the city for several years and have had many foster dogs and rover pups through our house. Your dog will love playing and going on lots of walks, and the time will pass so quickly they'll barely ...

What Michelle would like to know about your dog

I *love* all sorts of animals, but especially dogs. I have absolutely no breed preference! My dogs are rescues and all of them are mixed breeds. So far my favorite dogs to watch have been Shiba Inu, Lab, Lhasa Apso, Vizsla, Australian Shepherd, Poodle, Greyhound, Brittany, Siberian husky, Cocker Spaniel, Goldendoodle, German Shepherd mix, American Eskimo dog, Rat Terrier, Dachshund, German Short Hair Bird Dog, and Border Collie. But honestly I love them all, it would be too hard to pick one favorite! I would like to know what makes a dog most happy before sitting him or her. For instance, my dog Eva could chase tennis balls all day. If that is what your dog likes, I want to know, so we can do a lot of that.

When Michelle watches your pet

Your dog will go on daily walks around the neighborhood pictured in the map, up to 3 miles or so if you dog wants to go that far. The backyard is fully fenced and my dogs thoroughly enjoy laying in the grass soaking up the sun. Inside I have all sorts of dog toys inside the house, i.e. tennis balls, ropes, squeaky ducks, and rubber kongs.
