About Michelle

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Cozy Culver City is the ideal place for dogs that enjoy a calm and comfortable environment. They will feel instantly at home with us : )

We usually overnight board one guest dog at a time so that the environment for your dog is calm and relaxing. If you have a pair of sibling dogs, please message me so we can discuss.

They will have supervised access to a clean well shaded yard, two long walks a day, and multiple potty breaks. If your dog loves to play fetch, we can also make sure she/he gets plenty of play time.

Our dog, Trotter, is very friendly and mellow. He will not really interact with your dog, but he will happily share his domain with your pup. He has no problems sharing toys, or his bed, and he is overall very calm.

Our neighborhood is very clean, quiet, and safe for your pup. The dogs love going for walks around here because there's plenty of grass and shade along the way.

We can only accept dogs that have no issues being left alone (with Trotter). We wouldn't leave them alone for more than 2-3 hours at most and only occasionally throughout the week.

Michelle was amazing! She took great care of our boys. It was my first time using DogVacay & I'm never going back to a boarding facility again! It's like dropping them off at a friends house with a yard! Michelle sent us updates throughout the stay & when I picked the boys up they were super happy vs being around 20 dogs for 5 days!

I highly recommend Michelle and I know I'll be reaching out to her again soon!

Thanks so much for taking such great care of our boys!

We loved Michelle so much! She sent us multiple photos and video of our dog while away. I think our dog might have even been happier at her house than ours.. Her dog Trotter is super docile and sweet. Such a great host! Would recommend to anyone..
Have 2 dogs and both had a great stay for over a week. They loved playing in the enclosed front yard. Michelle was very accommodating and sent many pictures and videos every day.
Michelle was incredibly sweet. My 10 year old beagle loved staying with her for his first visit. I was really nervous to leave him in a new place that he hadn't been to before but she offered for me leave him an hour he day before the boarding to give him a Vance to warm up. She sent me many pictures during his stay and offered tips for natural medicine for a few flea bites that he had. Her home is so comfortable on a quiet street. I was so happy to leave him in such great hands. I'll definitely be coming back!
Michelle and Trotter rock! Our dog, Josey, loved his stay at their very comfortable and dog friendly house. He received all the care and attention any doggy guest could ask for and we received plenty of very cute and assuring updates and photos. In fact, we're booking Josey's next stay now!
Michelle was amazing. The pictures and videos flowed all weekend. She took such good care of our pup, we could not have asked for anything more. cyb
I cannot say enough good things about Michelle!! From the first meet-and-greet to the end, Michelle has been nothing but perfection.

Being nervous about leaving my dog with anyone, she has miraculously for the first time, put my mind at ease with leaving my dog. She truly treated my dog as her own and took the very best care of him.

I have finally found the place I will take my dog to and I'm incredibly grateful for her. I cannot recommend her enough!!
Michelle and her family were fantastic! Noodle was so at home he took over Trotter's bed. We initially did a meet and greet and Noodle made himself quite at home right away. Trotter is one of the coolest dogs ever. Noodle got along with him right off the bat. Michelle kept us updated through the day with photos and she never hesitated to inform us when any question came up. She is also very responsive to messages. Couldn't have asked for a better stay.
Our second time with Michelle, and as usual, another tremendous job. Her pictures are the best!
We have vacay'd with Michelle and Trotter every week for the past couple of months. Michelle is the most amazing host ever! It's obvious from day one that your pup will be loved, taken care of, and played with at Michelle's house. She consistently sends updates and has been more than accommodating and flexible to our schedule. Her house is also extremely dog friendly and even includes an enclosed yard with grass lawn. Trotter is also one of the reasons our pup loves vacaying at Michelle's. He's definitely an older brother-type and is a calming presence and great friend to our pup. We will be vacaying with Michelle for as long as possible!!
Michelle was great! She's very sweet, responsive and sent me updated picture of my dog, Snowy throughout the day.
Walters stay with Michelle was super easy, convenient and Walter had he best time! Michelle was super responsive and flexible, and even sent photos and videos of Walter playing will all her dogs toys! Would definitely recommend Michelle's !!
Michelle was great and we are very happy Bailey was well taken care off and happy. She sent multiple pics and videos daily. Will definitely use her again and highly recommend.
The minute we walked into Michelle's home, saw the yard and met her dog Trotter we knew that Bennie had found a second
family! We were right. Bennie stayed with Michele for 5 nights and 6 days and loved it.
We could see from the videos she sent how much fun and attention he was getting. Thank you Michelle, John and Trotter for caring for our family pet as your own. We will be calling on you again very soon! (Bennie can't wait!) Jan and Mel
Michelle was great and very easy to communicate with! She sent me the best photos and made Mila feel right at home:) I will definitely be using Michelle again!
Such a tender touch to our sweet boy. So many photos and videos were sent that we felt he was having a good time.
Michelle is an amazing sitter. Oliver loved spending time with her and Trotter in their lovely home and front yard. She sent so many cute photos and videos of Oliver throughout the day that my husband and I didn't even feel separated. I could tell by the second day that Oliver loved his time with her and was both comfortable and happy to be there. We will be dropping him off at this cute, artsy puppy haven again without hesitation! Thanks again, Michelle :)
Michelle did such a great job with our little girl. It was Harley's first time on a dog vacay, and we couldn't have asked for a better host! Michelle took excellent care of Harley and really made her feel at home. She kept Harley's feeding routine (including medication administration), exercised her well, and gave her lots of love! Plus, I think its safe to say that Harley made a new friend with Michelle's dog, Trotter. An overall great experience!
I would whole heartedly recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for a dog sitter. Our dog stayed with Michelle for a week. She sent us the most adorable photo updates and kept us updated regularly. I am glad we found Michelle and plan on booking with her again for future dog vacays. She's the best!!
My doggie came home very happy and well-cared for after her stay with Michelle. The fenced-in yard and quiet neighborhood were perfect for my pup. Michelle went above and beyond to ensure my doggie was well cared for and happy while she was with her. She also sent me constant updates and pictures so I could see my pup was happy and relaxed while I was gone. Highly recommend Michelle.
Michelle is the best!

She sent tons of photo updates and our dog was supremely delighted with his day there. We felt very good leaving him in her hands and he seemed truly happy. She had a couple of dogs hanging out in her spacious place, lots of space for dogs to spread out. Seems they ended up forming a pack and hanging together in the front yard.

We will definitely look to situate our dog with Michelle in the future. She's a pro.
