Michelle had her hands full dropping in on our 3 puppies under a year old. It was a bit of a hectic drop in as our oldest puppy began her first heat. Michelle did a great job getting them all out to potty, eat and play. We were most impressed with all the questions she asked to make sure she had each puppies routine/needs down. Our youngest puppy is in the stranger danger phase ...

We are so fortunate to have had Michelle take care of our dog as well as our daughters dog. We liked the idea that she was able to come stay in our home for the weekend as well. The dogs were well taken care of and we enjoyed getting the picture and video updates throughout the weekend. You could tell that the dogs enjoyed being around Michelle as much as she did them. We will ...

I treat all animals like family!!

I’m Michelle and I absolutely love dogs. What makes them so special is their sense of loyalty and joy! They’re always happy to see you when you get home, are always there when you need someone by your side, and love you unconditionally. Who else is that special companion through life’s ups and downs?

I’m currently studying to become a Veterinary Assistant and being a Rover sitter has helped develop my ...

What Michelle would like to know about your dog

It is my goal to make sure that my furry client and I become fast and long-lasting friends. I like to do that by finding out their likes and dislikes, their favorite toys and games, and if they like to cuddle! I’m also interested to know their normal exercise routine and how much activity they need to be happy! I also like to learn if they have any medical issues or behavioral tendencies that I should be aware of.

I am ready and willing to take care of all sizes and breeds. The only thing that I ask is if your dog is fearful of new people and requires extra time to trust you, that I spend some extra time with your dog prior to the stay in order to build a rapport and trust. This means that I require more than one Meet & Greet, in order to determine if I am the best fit to care for your furry friend. It is my number one priority to ensure that all dogs under my care are getting the quality care that they deserve, and this is the best way that I can ensure that. Thank you for your cooperation!

When Michelle watches your pet

While I’m caring for your furry friend, you can ensure that I’ll do everything to make sure they are comfortable, safe, and have a good time! There will be plenty of exercise, stimulation and cuddles on the couch! Even though I work from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM, I can easily stop by to check on your pup during the day if you live within a three mile radius of where I work. When I get home from work, we’ll go on a long walk and have TV time before bed.

If your pup has a normal walking or exercise routine, I’ll be happy to follow it so your pup stays comfortable and happy! I also love staying active and exploring nature so I’d love to take your pup to Point Defiance Park. It has a beautiful rose garden and I know we’d have fun smelling the roses and meeting the other dogs and people who love the park as much as I do!
