About Jessica and Mikel

Hello! We are a happy couple, living in a 1BR brownstone in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, with an outdoor space.

We love all animals, but have special affection for dogs. Jessica grew up with mixed breed rescue dogs and has an increased sensitivity to animals as a result. Mikel has had professional training in dog behavior and raised a German Shepherd from puppy adolescence.

We first joined DV in March of 2012 because we missed having canine companionship in our lives. We had so much love to give but not a dog to give it to. We met some wonderful furry friends that first year and still keep in touch with them (and their humans) to this day.

In 2013 we went on a bit of a hiatus because we got our own pup. Now that we've had him for a year we're happy to introduce him (and reintroduce ourselves) to the DV community. Hudson is kind, gentle, and very well behaved. There's not an aggressive bone in his body. We went through the process of certifying him as a Therapy Dog through the Good Dog Foundation and he starts his "work" in the spring.

We love taking walks to the Brooklyn Waterfront, to Hillside Dog park, Fort Greene Park, and occasionally Prospect Park. We would be happy to bring your dog with us and welcome him/her to join our little family while you're away :).

Jessica and Mikel were great!!!
Jessica & Mikel are GREAT!! Super reliable, professional, and loving to our handful of a dog (140 lb. Irish Wolfhound)!
Jessica and Mikel were fabulous from beginning to end. Our young puppy was a bit energetic and excited at the initial meet-and-greet, but they quickly put our minds at ease. They were so thoughtful in asking about details regarding Bergen's routine and our favorite part was the pictures they sent while we were away. We knew that she was in great hands with Jessica and Mikel, they went above and beyond! We're just glad Bergen didn't put up too much of a fight when she had to leave. :)

Oscar enjoyed his stay with Jessica and Mikel. They were excellent caretakers and we would definitely have Oscar stay with them again.
Two paws up! We were so worried that Oscar was going to be nervous and scared when we left him for our week and a half vacation, but .Jessica calmed our fears with her caring and patient demeanor with Oscar when we met before we left. It only got better after we dropped him off, with daily photos and updates of Oscar from her every day we were gone. We could tell Oscar was being taken great care of - lots of trips to the dog park and lots of belly rubs and snuggling - which gave us such peace of mind while we were away. We will certainly use them again next time we are away!

I met Jessica and Michel and they are a great couple curious about how to care about my dog. Jessica send me pictures with regular updates of my dog's adaptation to his vacation home when I was away. My dog was very well taken care and I sensed they really liked him.

Jessica and Mikel are great! They took fabulous care of my pit bull, Olive. They are clearly very experienced with dogs and I felt very comfortable knowing Olive was in capable and loving hands. Next time I need a sitter they'll be the first folks I call.

Jessica and Mikel took great care of our puppy! When I dropped him off, they were really interested in everything about him, making sure to get all of the details. They spent lots of time with him at the dog park, and when I came to pick him up he looked incredibly happy.

Jessica & Mikel took wonderful care of my beagle, Spencer! They appear to be really nice people and seem to genuinely love dogs. There was constant communication with photos of Spencer out and about-he looked very happy. In the end, Spencer wasn't 'mad' at me for leaving him there after I picked him up. I plan on using them again and again in the future, as they have become my 'go-to' boarding in my neighborhood. - John T.

Jessica and Mikel were very sweet and gave me constant photo updates. They really cared about Jordan and his well being, and gave me a complete report when I got home, down to the smallest details, just so they were sure that he was being returned happy, well fed and well cared for.
