About Michelle

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Michelle and have been around dogs most of my life. I have a strong connection with animals and can relate to their great unconditional energy and spirit. Each dog is unique and it's great meeting new canines with their special personalities.
I enjoy going on walks and having a dog to walk with makes it even better. I have personal experience with medical conditions regarding dogs and am aware of symptoms when they occur and how to treat them.
I'm home most of the day and my husband also works from home so if your pet is staying with us, they will have a companion full time.
Our place is a townhouse (with stairs) inside of a gated community, air conditioned, smoke free with a fenced in dog run right below our large enclosed balcony next to the LA River. The neighborhood and our home is peaceful and quiet, lined with sidewalks for scenic walks and we live near several parks and trails.

- Meet & Greet Required before booking.
- There are no other children or pets in our home.
- Our house is mostly carpet so it's best if your pup is already house trained.
- Please arrange pick up and drop times to be around the same time - ex. drop off at 9am please try to pick up before noon, drop off 5pm please pick up before 9pm.
- Daycare hours consist of roughly 8 hours - ex. 9am to 5pm.

We're located in Studio City but only 5 minutes from Hollywood, 10 from Downtown and 15 through the canyon for BH and WeHo.

Thank you and look forward to meeting you and your pet. :-)

Michelle did a great job with our dog Kenny and was responsive and helpful through the whole process. She texted us updates and was always quick to respond to questions. Kenny seems calm, happy, and well rested after his week long vacay. We couldn't have asked for a better host and will be bringing Kenny back next time we leave town. Thanks again Michelle!
Michelle did a great job communicating with us and letting us know how Norman was doing! She was flexible with pick up times and was super friendly!
Norman came home relaxed and happy, he even came home brushed and cleaned.
So perfect! Norman will definitely be visiting again. Thank you!!
Michelle is awesome! Took care of Amber like she was her own... sent me pictures and notes on she was doing... felt super comfortable.
We love Michelle and James! They are responsive and give me updates through my dog's stay, but best of all my dog loves them! They go on walks and wrestle, and she's exhausted when I pick her up! My dog Ella usually cries when I'm dropping her off, and the last time she didn't even look back, just followed Michelle in her house :) it's really great to find someone I know will take good care of her, and not have to worry that she is upset when I'm gone. I absolutely recommend Michelle and James!
My dog has stayed with Michelle and James twice now and both times he has had a great time!
Michelle keeps me updated with pictures and responds quickly. Both times I have picked up my dog after a trip he has been very happy and he looks super comfortable there. I am glad to have found a place where I can leave my dog without having to worry, because I know he is in great hands!
Michelle was terrific! We have a dog that is on several medications and a specific food schedule and she took care of everything. My dog was happy and healthy when she was picked up. Michelle gave us lots of pictures and updates which were great. I would definitely use her again.
Michelle and James did such a great job looking after our pups while we were on vacation! Our Chihuahua mix and Boston Terrier had individual attention, went on multiple walks a day, some as long as 2-something miles!! Our boys were happy and exhausted by the time we got back after 4 days. It was such a relief knowing they were so well taken care of.
Michelle and her boyfriend are great! They are so sweet and understanding about Pepper's needs. I know that Pepper is in good hands while I'm away. They always send updates and are quick to respond. Will continue to book with Michelle!
