I absolutely cannot say enough good things about Mike. He watched our very anxious terrier and did an amazing job with her. He listened to our instructions and requests and followed them to a T and was extremely patient with Mika. She returned exactly as we left her, and clearly enjoyed her experience. In addition, Mike only takes one dog at a time, which, given our dog is not friendly with others, was extremely important. ...

Mike is awesome. This is the second time he watched our dog for us, and it went just as well as the first time. We do not have an easy dog to take of. He receives 2 types of medications 2 times a day, and he's afraid of other dogs which makes walking him a bit more of a challenge, but Mike handles it all so well. Mike stayed our house and watched our dog ...

Mike was very flexible for pick up and drop offs and our dog Mable seemed comfortable with him right away. He sent tons of pics and updates which was very much appreciated. They were good pictures, too! Mable has some anxiety and socialization issues (separation anxiety and scared of everything not an adult human) and Mike knew exactly how to handle them. She was there for 4th of July fireworks (Mable's least favorite time of ...

Graduate Hospital Pet Sitting

I live in Graduate Hospital.

If you have an active dog, I'd love to take them on a run as well!

I'll be spending all the time in the world with your dogs and will send you photos and e-mails during their stay. I do not accept bookings if I will not be with your dog for the entirety of their stay - meaning they'll never be left alone in my care. I look forward ...

What Mike would like to know about your dog

I'd like to know their favorite things to do, if they have any medical considerations, and any specific behavioral aspects unique to them.

I'm an animal lover, so I don't have any breed preferences - but people seem to like that I can handle the responsibility of larger dogs as I'm 6'2.

When Mike watches your pet

If you have an active dog, I'd love to take them on runs! I walk dogs 4 or more times a day depending on their age and energy level - if you have any requests (like long walks with your dog) I'm always up for it.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
Your dog can sleep anywhere they want and you permit - whether it be on the couch, in the bed, on the floor, or if you have crate trained them that works too!

Time I'll spend with your dog:
As much time as possible - I am a firm believer that dogs should have companions and be cared for. If there is a schedule concern where I know I would not be able to spend a significant amount of time with your dogs due to work / school - I could not accept the request.

I will walk your dog 4 or more times a day (depending on length of stay) as well as play games with them.
