About Michelle

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! My name is Michelle and animals are such an important part of my life. If I could, I would adopt them all!!! I have one wonderful doggy and 3 great kitties. that all live together in harmony.

I have been pet sitting for friends, family and clients for 15 plus years besides growing up with dogs. I will care for your fur babies as if they were my own. Pets are more than just pets, they are family and I will give them all the love and attention that they deserve.

Unfortunately, I cannot offer any pet services in my own home but I can come to yours. I feel it's better that way as most pets feel more comfortable in their own home. I do not have any kids, besides my fur kids. I have my boyfriend who can be home with our pets so I can come to your home and take care of your babies. Currently I work 5 hours (9:00 am to 2:00 pm) a day, Monday through Friday in the Tempe area.

I sure would love to take care of your fur babies and become pet pals!!

Michelle is phenomenal! She has become known as our four-legged kids "Auntie M". Our dogs and cats love her. We know they are happy, healthy, safe and well cared for when she takes care of them. It is such a relief to have such confidence that both our home and our furbabies are in such good hands. She sends pictures and updates to see what a wonderful time they are all having together. We have a suspicion the kids may be slightly disappointed when we come back from time away as they are certainly spoiled by their "Auntie M" with love and attention! She dog/cat/house sits for us and I must say the house always looks better than how we left it. Michelle gets my highest recommendation!!

We have used Michelle as our dog sitter for several years. Our dogs are always well cared for when she comes to our home. We have a senior dog and Michelle does a great job giving our dog her medicine. I always make sure I leave instructions for Michelle so she knows what we need while she is there. Michele does a good job communicating with us while we are gone either by phone calls or texts to let us know how our dogs are doing.

It is my pleasure to let you know my experienced with Michelle Hansen and how special she is to us and our senior dog. I have a 15 lbs Lhasa Apso, Terrier Mix.
Our dog is 16 years old and deals with separation anxiety. Along with that, he is a stand-offish dog which make it even more difficult for him to warm up to anyone... including us at times. Even more difficult is that he is not a good traveler and does not like to be outside of his own home. He paces around with high anxiety and never really settles when we take him to a friend's home. So finding someone to come to my home to doggy sit is much better for us, our dog and the person doggy sitting.
I was so happy to met Michelle and knowing she had no problem at all coming to our home to sit was awesome to us. She even came to us on New Years Eve to do so. It was a long night and she was taking care of another dog the same night across the street from us. Which was fine with us as we knew she could do it and she knew the other dog longer. That dog was blind and also deals with separation anxiety, so she had her hands full with two dogs. But you would never know it, she did it with ease and stress free. Both dogs were cared for equally.
When she met our little guy I could tell she was the one. She spoke so softly and let our little dog come to her, she did not force him to come, she was very patient and waited. And finally Moe sniffed her and sat beside her and I could tell he was very comfortable with her.
I would highly recommend Michelle to care for any size or age of dog. She definitely knows about dogs and how to be with them. She's a natural and her calm demeanor and kind heart towards all animals in admirable.

It was a true blessing that I found Michelle to help with my dogs over the Thanksgiving HOLIDAY while I went back to my hometown. From the moment I spoke to her, I knew she was a perfect fit because she didn't think I was crazy by how much I loved my dogs and how important it was to me feel I could trust someone to care for my dogs. My dogs immediately liked her and I was at peace while I was away knowing she would care for them as well as I do or even better. She sent me pictures and kept me informed which I so appreciated. She went above and beyond and I'm very thankful I got so lucky first time using dogvacay.
