Where do I even begin with Mikel?! She's such a responsible, kind-hearted, compassionate and attentive individual who treats animals as well as people. To say she's a dog person is an understatement. She even worked on a dairy farm and bonded with baby cows.

What Mikel would like to know about your dog
When I’m hired to watch a new pet, I always make sure the owner is at ease. I ask lots of great questions that help me meet all your dog’s needs and be the best sitter possible.
The questions I like to ask include:
- What is your pet's general disposition/temperament?
- Has your pup ever become violent?
- Do they get along well with other dogs?
- Are they housebroken and trained in basic commands?
- Does your pet have separation anxiety?
- Have you hired a dog sitter or walker before?
