Mike has recently raised two dogs together. His dogs are well behaved and loved. Their calm demeanor shows how comfortable they are in Mike's hands. He makes their needs his priority including going for walks, runs, and outdoor play. He enjoys animals and has high integrity. I would definitely recommend Mike as your dog sitter.

Mike is a fantastic dog owner & caretaker. He always puts the needs of the dogs first, whether it be ensuring they are properly exercised in rain or snow or shelling out a little extra to ensure their food and treats are top of the line & healthy. Your dog, big or small, will be in good, strong hands!

Fenced yard with two furry friends

I'm a big believer in positive reinforcement and training. My first training experience was with my Rhodesian Ridgeback, Zulu. They're a strong-willed breed that doesn't respond to anything but friendly (treat assisted) training. He's almost five now, but still seems to have his puppy energy, and by the time I got my Minpin, Luna two years after him, I was an expert!
I'm physically strong and can manage any breed on a walk or run ...

What Mike would like to know about your dog

If there's any aggression issues with other dogs or people. What their feeding and sleeping preferences are. The different commands that they know. Their favorite toys and games, and if they're housebroken and have any allergies/medical issues.

When Mike watches your pet

I typically walk around the paradise green area of Stratford. Occasionally, I'll go over to Lake Mohegan in Fairfield and go hiking. I let my two off the leash so they can play with other dogs, but I'd keep yours on their leash until I'm confident that they'd stay within a safe proximity and attain your permission to do so. If I'm in your neighborhood, I'll scout your area ahead of time to find a good circuit.
