Mikel has babysat my labs for the past 5 years. She is a natural with all breeds but is especially good with my energetic pups. She understands the needs of Hershey, my strong alpha male and Miley, my sweet but needy girl. Both dogs need vigorous exercise and Mikel wears them out with walks, fetching at the park and fetching and swimming at the beach or lake. My dogs love to swim and Mikel makes ...

I will run & hike with your dog!

I’m Mikel. I wanted to become a pet sitter because caring for animals is my passion. Nothing brings me more joy than meeting new furry friends, looking after them, and getting to know their unique personalities! I love that dogs are always excited to see you – it just brightens my mood when I’m greeted by a happy pooch after a stressful day!

My family has always owned canines. In addition, I’ve done ...

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?

When Mikel watches your pet

I like to ease into getting to know a new furry guest in order to build trust. I will first connect with a dog by giving them treats. Next, I’ll let them sniff me so they know I’m not a threat. Then I’ll start to be affectionate by petting a pooch and talking to them in a soothing voice. This lets them know I’m a friend.

My neighborhood has plenty of great parks and places to walk the dogs I care for. During our time together, I’ll take your pet on walks or to a nearby park. I like to try to get away from busy sidewalks and connect with nature. I find that parks calm pups down and they seem to enjoy walking around on grass more than pavement. Forest trails are also a favorite of mine. I always keep owners updated while their pet is with me. I’ll send you detailed reports so you won’t have to worry!
