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. IMPORTANT: so that I may properly focus on getting to know your furkid, two-legged children under 12 are not permitted at meet & greets in my home.

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!

About Michelle's Home

When Michelle watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live in a quiet suburban neighborhood that's great for walking. We're also a short car ride away from Leawood's walking trail network & the Leawoof Dog Park.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
It depends on how well he/she sleeps. If through the night (or a puppy who needs a 3am potty break), then in the bedroom with me. If he/she is an adult but a restless sleeper, then in my office aka the dog room

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much as he/she needs to be happy & comfortable while you're away. As I work mostly from home, it's easy for me to spend lots of quality time with the furkids - both yours and mine!

Time I'll spend with your dog
It depends on your dogs needs. I work primarily from home so it's easy for me to pop in on your dog several times per day for 20-30 minutes at a time. If your dog is more comfortable not staying alone at night, overnight stays are available.
