About Michelle

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Michelle and I'm here with my dog, Mighty Mouse. We can offer a safe and low-key environment for you and your dog here in Adam's Point in Oakland. We love going for leisurely walks around Lake Merritt and other parks in the area. I have experience with taking care of my own dog for years, as well as for friends, family and foster dogs. I hate leaving Mighty Mouse behind when I have to travel so I know how it feels for other pet parents to do so. We'll provide updates and take lots of pictures to put your mind at ease.

It was nice to know that Tulli was in a good place with someone who is so nice!
At the last minute, a family member who was supposed to be keeping my dog over the Christmas holidays left me in the lurch. I was going to mexico for nine days and my 6-year-old Papillon mix had never stayed for any long period with a non family member. She'd never been boarded and I knew she would be miserable in a kennel. I got in touch with Michelle about three weeks before my trip. Fortunately she was available. I took my pup over for a meet and greet with her and Mighty Mouse. Michelle was the greatest. My dog got a tummy upset while I was gone and had an accident in the house. She emailed me immediately to let me know. Michelle actually worked from home one day to make sure my dog was OK, gave her lots of TLC and made her chicken broth and rice until the stomach upset passed. (thankfully after a couple of days) Michelle took her on walks with mighty mouse and sent me photos every day showing my little friend out and about and with her pup. I will definitely seek her out the next time I'm going away and can't recommend her highly enough!

Our dog just stayed with Michele over the Thanksgiving holiday and I can say we were very pleased. Michele is a great communicator. She is punctual. She wanted to meet our dog beforehand to make sure it was a good fit. She has a cute little dog of her own so our dog was part of a small pack. She sent us pics regularly which were much appreciated. When we flew back into town to pick up our dog she was home and outside waiting for us with all his belongings in tow. She just seems on the ball. Most importantly our dog seemed fine, like he got alot of attention. We felt secure leaving our dog with her and would do so again.

Michelle was great with my dog. I received many pictures of their walks together. My dog seemed less anxious than when she goes and stays at a kennel. Defintely would book her again.
Michelle was awesome with our Pebbles. She took good care of our dog and her cute little dog, Mighty Mouse, was a nice companion as well. Michelle updated us and sent us pictures of their daily activities, which made us feel at ease. We definitely are very satisfied and would recommend her to anyone who wants to have their dog well taken care of.

A big element that persuaded me about Michelle was the number of repeat clients...that really is a testament and validation of some degree of credibility. Beyond that, PROMPT is the best way to characterize Michelle. When I sent the 5am-ish inquiry, she responded not too long afterwards. This allowed me to immediately plan and commit to scheduling my entire day. When we texted in advance that we were a few minutes away, she text responded immediately. When we arrived and parked in front of her building, she immediately texted that she was coming down to greet us. When she took the leash of our dog, he felt comfortable with her and simply turned around and walked confidently away with her. When I called and texted a few times into the sitting hours, she immediately responded with a text, photo & text that everything was fine, they were having playtime with her cute dog, hanging out in the kitchen, etc. Upon picking him up, she was flexible and no bad vibes in our being about 45' late, near midnight, met us at the front door of her building, where our dog showed he was happy for the stay, tired from the activity and stimulation of the stay, and happy go go home. In the three minutes it took to get to the freeway, our dog was fast asleep. Her prompt responding, accepting our reservation request, good vibes and ability to connect with our dog made our day possible, productive, and ultimately fostered a safe, enjoyable, and tiring play/stay for our dog. That was a great day!

Michelle and Might Mouse were great! They kept me updated and Michelle made sure Hamilton took his medication!
Michelle had great communication and our dog had a great time with her and her pup! She was flexible in meeting us in advance to see if our dogs got along, and she sent us photo updates. I would definitely book her again!
Michelle was great and laid back. She brought her sweet doggie Mighty Mouse down to meet Mario outside first and they got along right away. She sent me photos of him getting more comfortable after a while, which made the separation better for me. Thank you Michelle!

Wish I could give six stars! Michelle and Mighty Mouse took great care of our chihuahua team. This is the first time we've felt like the dogs had a vacay!!
Our girls have stayed with Michelle & Mighty Mouse during the day twice, and both times it has been a dream! The dogs have been exhausted after both stays, and on our second visit, they greeted Michelle with wagging tails. Her location is near the freeway so if you're from out of town (like us) you'll have easy off/on access. Michelle is now our go-to sitter in Oakland!
