Mike took great care of our high energy pup while we were away for the weekend. We got lots of updates and our pup got plenty of time outdoors walking around and play time inside. When we came back everything was in order and our dog was happy+healthy.

Mike is so awesome. We rescued our dog, Fitz, about 9 months ago, and we had never left him alone with anyone else. He's a fear aggressive dog with many triggers, and we were afraid to leave him with a stranger out of fear he would lash out. Fitz is also medicated and takes 2 types of medication daily, so he's a bit of a handful. All of our anxieties were put aside a few ...

Mike is excellent!! Our dog loves him!! We have a large dog and had a difficult time finding someone willing to dog sit for us. Mike is great with Atlas and takes him on multiple walks and outings each day. We love the nightly updates that Mike sends. Would highly recommend him!!

Rittenhouse Awesome Pet Sitting

I live in Rittenhouse.

We have a rather expansive backyard in the city where your dog will have plenty of room to play.

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 ...

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.
