Mike watched our pups over the weekends and all appears quite well! Pups seem happy and the apartment looks great. He definitely loves dogs and I'm sure mine got plenty of attention! Will definitely use Mike again!

Mike's great with dogs and very responsible. He always had dogs growing up and is so caring and loving towards mans best friend. I have 2 and would trust Mike whole heartedly with them from dog walking to taking care of them over night.

Mike cares deeply about all animals entrusted to his care, and shows them more love and affection than any owner could wish for. He'll make sure they get exercise, stay safe, and have fun!

They call me "The Dog Whisperer"

I have loved dogs since I was a baby and my family dog, Kelsey, licked my face whenever I got messy. I can tame the wildest of pups, and know exactly which spots to scratch. Sometimes, I go home to "visit my parents," but really - I'm going to spend some time with Cassie.

When I go too long without a canine companion, it's almost like going through withdrawal. If I'm ever feeling blue, all ...

What Mike would like to know about your dog

All I need is their name, and I'll take care of the rest. Please also let me know if they have any allergies or other medical conditions.

When Mike watches your pet

I love to play games, go on long walks, and visit dog beaches and parks and wherever else dogs are allowed. We will play fetch with a variety of toys - and I know how to find just the right one for any dog. If they enjoy a little rough-housing, I will be their friendly combatant (but very gentle). I will take them to forest preserves or river trails if permitted by owner, and let them get all the smells they desire. Any request made by an owner will be followed to the tee.
