What Mike would like to know about your dog

When you're considering time away from your pet, you can mix and match the duration of any of my visits. A popular combo is 30 minute breakfast and dinner visits which include a walk, a 20 minute potty break midday, and then a 20 minute walk and playtime & snuggles before bed.
You know your pet's routine - you tell me what will work.

When Mike watches your pet

I tailor any number of visits, of any duration, to best meet your pet's (and your) routine and needs. From Malteses to Mastiffs, any size dog (and cats too!) are welcome, including walks, feeding, bathroom breaks, cuddles and attention, and some at-home medical care (Pills, iv fluids, etc). I only use positive training and reinforcement with clients; including these elements in my visits are part of the package, never extra!
Direct coaching for you and your furball is available - ask about rates and availability.

"Typically, how long will dogs in your care have to wait between potty breaks? "
That's really up to you...
Depending on your dog and what they're used to, the number of visits and durations can be adjusted to meet any preference.
Typically, 3 20-minute walks a day (morning with breakfast before 7, an afternoon for dinner at 4, and before bed after 10) are a good starting point, at $16/visit.

Longer visits or walks can be easily arranged, as can shorter "pee breaks" for seniors, smaller dogs, or dogs not used to being left alone so long. Think of this as a concierge service to best accommodate you, rather than a one size fits most solution.
