About Michael

42 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a large single family home right in the middle of Neenah, WI. Plenty of space inside and out for doggy activities. I have a nice sized fenced in back yard. Also right across the street from The Shattuck Middle School Park and a short walk to the Neenah Boat Launch and Park on Winnebago. Home is very pet friendly and has a permanent resident, Betty Sue, a very laid back and extremely friendly English Bulldog, 7 1/2 years of age. She has many four and two legged friends in the neighborhood. I'm self employed and work mostly from home, except for business travel that is mostly planned in advance. I love dogs and have had them most of my life. I am very responsible, respectful, mature and easy going. There are several Veterinary services available within 2 - 15 minutes drive. Plenty of parks and wonderful places to walk and exercise your 4 legged family members. Outagamie Airport, is only 12 minutes drive from my driveway.
On Sept 1 2015, I opened Betty's "Boutique Play Room. It's 15' x 25', chock full of toys, blankets, pillows, lounge areas, water stations, padded floor area, snooze cubes, play areas, a small couch for both 2 and 4 legged comfort. It is also on security cam and I can view remotely as well as from my living room TV. I plan on adding a walk in floor level wash station and will adorn the walls with pictures of all my 4 legged guests. Check out the photos.

Michael made sure Reggie felt comfortable on his eight day visit, including making sure his meals were given and finished. They went for walks and had plenty of time outside. Thank you Michael. We will be sure to contact you on our next vacation.
Our dog Reggie had a nice first time visit at Michael's. He fit in well after getting to know the other dogs. He was very mellow and tired on the ride home which is a good sign. We would go back again.
Michael and Betty were great! Michael made sure Chica felt comfortable in her home away from home, including making sure her meals were always fully enjoyable. (He added a little cottage cheese and then had to microwave it gently just like he did for Betty!) They went for 2 walks a day, and had plenty of time outside in the lovely back yard! Thank you Michael! We will be sure to contact you on our next visit to Neenah!

Michael was awesome with our dog, Dude. Dude felt like one of the family and was a happy guy. We received numerous texts showing pictures of Dude and telling us about his day. We had complete confidence that Dude was well taken care of and we would definitely send him back to Michael's home for another stay should the need arise. I highly recommend this host.

Archie was not a good fit for Mike, in my opinion. I got the feeling Mike didn't like Archie and his habits either. Also, not as many good pics as I'm accustomed to getting from my regular Dog Vacay sitters in Minneapolis. Most pics I received were of Archie's rear while walking.

Michael was very helpful! We had a sudden need to be out of town and he was happy to help me book for my first time on dogvacay. He cares a lot about he dogs he watches. Don't be afraid to give details about your pets; it only helps him watch them better knowing their different personalities.

He was very open and honest with us throughout their stay. I can't say thank you enough!

Michael took excellent care of Daisy. He provided daily texts including photos of their walks and daily activities. Our Daisy can be needy, wanting attention and Michael was very patient with her as she settled into Michael's home and routine. Our family loved hearing about Daisy and Betty Sue getting along together. Thanks to Michael, we knew Daisy was well cared for while we were out of town.

Michael is a very nice man, very caring and listened to all "Snuggles" needs. Michael said Snuggles had a very good time. Usually he is shy and doesn't eat much being around someone new. Snuggles went for a walk and ate and had a good time. I will be very happy bringing him to Michael again and not worry how he is doing. I trust Michael completely! Very satisfied.

My dog Paisley had a wonderful time at Michaels! I was really worried about her at first as she has been known to be aggressive sometimes with other dogs. He and Betty Sue made her feel right at home and I really appreciated the pictures and updates. That really helped to decrease my anxiety. After the first day, I knew she was going to be just fine! We will be going to Michael's again!

they had a great time mike is so nice and sent us photos and notes thanks dr john
We were very happy with the care our 3 dogs received at Michael's This past weekend. He is a very caring and knowledgeable dog sitter. Our little ones got along fine with Betty and all other guests. We received text and photo updates often from Michael so there were no worries while we were away. He has created a perfect environment for your pets- a home away from home!

I had a senior citizen (13 years old) who doesn't see too well that I was reluctant to leave, and a toy-size dog who is skittish with strangers. Everything went just great! Michael contacted me regularly to let me know how they were doing, and adapted to each of their needs. If I have need in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to book with Michael again.

Absolutely awesome! My husband and I are both travel nurses with over 12 hour work days. We are from TN and knowing no one from Wisconsin or anything about it makes it hard. We found Michael and he watches Oscar on the days we work. He is willing to work with us and understanding to the fact our hours are never the same. Oscar had so much fun and we recieved up dates throughout his stay. Michael takes the time to walk him 3 times a day and love on him. I wish there were more people in the world like him; we would pack him up and take him to which ever state we worked in if we could.

I previously boarded my Samoyed with a large kennel for only 2 days and she came home sick for almost 2 weeks. She was hoarse and couldn't eat. She barely moved and threw up what she could get down.

Needless to say I was very nervous about leaving her with anyone again.

After checking the other reviews and doing some investigating, I scheduled a meet and greet with Michael. Michael was more than happy to meet with my family and his potential doggy guest.

Upon meeting Michael it was clear our Sam would be safe in his hands. He is very friendly and quite easy to talk to. As we chatted like old friends our Sam checked out his digs and we were able to get a sense of how she would take to Michael and his English bulldog Betty.

The day after the meet and greet I booked a week of hosting with Michael. He encouraged us to bring anything that would make our dog's stay as easy and comfortable as possible. We were even able to bring her kennel which is her safe zone at home.

The day we dropped our pet off I think Michael knew we were apprehensive. It was hard to leave her behind but Michael sent us text and photos before the end of the day to let us know she was alright. Over the course of our vacation Michael sent text and photos to put us at ease that all was well. It was clear that our dog was getting all the attention, walks and creature comforts she could desire.

She came home healthy and happy! I will not hesitate to book Michael again.

This was the first time our two puppies were away from us. Michael treated them as his own, lots of play and walks, sent us regular updates and pictures. Our puppies loved Betty too! We will definitely return to use Michael, we know our puppies are in great hands.

Fabulous!! There are not enough words to express our gratitude for Michael's (and Bettie's) kindness and caring. Our dogs (Ziggy & Sparty) seemed to have a great time and were treated like family. Michael sent us daily updates along with pictures, and did not hesitate to ask if a question came up. We truly felt comfortable with him watching our "family members" and would definitely recommend him. The dogs came home happy - and tired.

michael is so accommodating and willing to take Bernice whenever we come to the Valley!
Michael did a great job hosting Luna in his home. Betty was laid back and was not too affected by Luna's enthusiasm, being a puppy she's very energetic and inquisitive. Photos of Luna with updates were texted to me daily. Michael endeavoured to follow my instructions on Luna's daily needs so there were no disruptions to her routine, which I much appreciated. All in all, a great job and I would definitely recommend Michael as a caregiver to any pet.

Michael and Betty Sue are great! I liked all the updates and pictures Michael provided while I was out of town. He asked questions if he was concerned about something. He spoiled my dog with walks! Everything I brought came back home safe and sound. Lily actually ate food while I was away! I could tell Lily was a happy girl during her stay. Plus, Lily was tired when she got home. Which was nice because it gave me time to get chores done and prepare for an upcoming week. Thanks a bunch Michael and I will use you again!

Michael was amazing with Bernice! He treated her like his own dog! He truly loves dogs!
Michael is everything. Kind, responsible, capable, smart. Betty is the cutest little girl and friendly with every dog and person. Could not recommend them more to host. My DOBERMAN puppy stayed for two weeks and had a blast. I got daily lengthy updates with pictures. They went on plenty of walks and he got a ton of exersize. Michael always asked before giving King new treats. He is the guy for anyone. Pick this house. No one better qualified.
