We are so happy we found Michelle to watch our two dogs while we were on vacation. We came back to well rested and happy pups! It is so much easier to enjoy your vacation when you know you have someone taking good care of your fur kids. I would absolutely recommend using Michelle and will use her for our next vacation! Thank you so much, Michelle!

I would highly recommend using Rover and in particular Michelle. I didn't want to board my dogs anywhere and I was anxious leaving them for the first time with someone for a whole week going away on vacation. Michelle was very good to my dogs and took good care of them in her home. She would check in with me while we were away sending us pictures and letting us know how the girls were ...

Michelle and her husband are awesome! They took tremendous care of our dog, Benny, and treated him as one of their own. They provided a fun email update to let us know everything was going well, and we felt completely at ease knowing that Benny was staying with them. We will be reaching out to Michelle any time we need a sitter.

Loving Care for your Furkid

If you’re like me, your pets are family members. When you can’t be home for them, whether it’s for work, vacation or other obligations, you want your best friends taken care of with the same love and attention you give them. I believe that most dog owners prefer loving homes (theirs or ours) to kennels for their furkids when seeking dog sitting or walking services. I will give you the peace of ...

What Michelle would like to know about your dog

A quick meet & greet is required prior to a stay. For sitting in your home it will allow your dog to meet me so that I'm not a stranger when I arrive. It will also allow me to learn your habits, where food/treats/toys are stored, and arrange for entry.

For sitting in my home it will allow your dog to become acquainted with me as well as make sure he/she gets along with my pack.

I really don't have a breed preference but my size preference is 25 - 85 pounds. We can accommodate all activity levels from couch potato to high energy. **For sitting in my home, dogs must be spayed or neutered**.

Our house rules are pretty relaxed - we allow our dogs on the furniture and free reign of the house. We give lots of healthy dog treats, however we rarely feed table scraps and when we do only in their bowls (inhibits begging). We practice the NILF (Nothing In Life is Free) training regimen - we sit and wait politely before going outside or receiving meals and treats. This is excellent for high energy dogs who might tend to have impulse control issues.

However, if your house rules preclude sitting on the furniture, we'll respect your wishes. We certainly don't want you coming home to bad habits!
