Michele is really "Aunt Michele" to our Sadie! After this stay Sadie told me if anything were to ever happen to us that she wants to go live with "Aunt Michele"! Need I say more...
This was the third visit my two dog's had at Michele's home and once again they were well cared for. Michele put me at ease with sending photos of them happily enjoying their stay during the week I was out of town. Thank you, Michele, for going the extra mile!

Our Abbey is a anxious dog with many quirks, I knew it would take someone special to make it all work, Michele was the one. Abbey loved her and she was welcomed into their family. I feel so relieved to have a place where Abbey can be well taken care of and loved and I can go having peace of mind.

Michele was great -- friendly, quick to respond, very accommodating to our schedule, and very accepting of our dog's quirks. Sadie will be visiting again!
Michele was wonderful! She was flexible with dates and even sent updates of Simba! He seemed to absolutely love it there and we are so happy to have finally found a place for our fur baby to go to when we're not home! :)
Michele was awesome! Adonis remembered her from the meet and greet and was excited as soon as he got out of the car. She kept us updated on how he was doing, and also sent pictures, during his stay. Adonis came home brushed, happy, and tired from all the fun he had. We will definitely use Michele for our boarding needs from now on. :)

Our dog always feels very much at home with Michele and her family. Thank you for taking him again, on short notice.
Michelle and her family provide a loving home for our dog when we have to be away. He loves the atttention from all the family members, and gets along well with their dog (and even the cat). Thank you Michelle.
We are very happy to have found a wonderful place for our lab Kona to hang out when we are gone. This is the first time we have "boarded" our dog and Michelle was wonderful, so glad we found a loving home away from home!! Thanks Michelle
Once again, Lance had a very good time with Michele and her family. He always goes into their house wagging his tail, and we know that he is well cared for as well as enjoying the company. Thank you again, Michele.
Once again, Lance had a very good time while we were in Europe for 3 weeks and he stayed with Michele and her family. He really becomes one of the family there and it is so nice to go away and know that he will be well cared for and happy. Thank you Michele.

Thank you Michele for taking care of our boys! When we brought them back to your house for another stay, our two dogs ran to your front door. They were so happy to be back! At a kennel, we would have to drag them out of the car. Thank you for providing them a home away from home. We can finally take a vacation and have total peace of mind that our dogs are safe, happy, loved!

Michele is wonderful, she really loves dogs and takes very good care of our baby. She makes sure he takes his meds, takes special care of his foot lump. She has a beautiful warm loving home with children who also clearly love dogs. You can't go wrong here!

Michele is amazing. She watched my two dogs for me last minute. And is always quick to respond to my messages.The dogs were exhausted and slept for the first few hours after coming home, you can tell they were very well taken care of. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a pet sitter.

We LOVE Michele. From the moment I brought Max over, Michele made us feel comfortable. Our pup has started having seizures the past couple months, and my husband and I didn't know what to do with him as our vacation was coming up. Michele was more than willing to work with our circumstance. She sent daily updates, and I could tell he was having the time of his life while there. We couldn't have been happier or more at ease. Thank you, Michele for loving our pup nearly as much as we do! :)

Michele and her family were so awesome with our black lab Sucia while we were gone for two weeks. Sucia is our baby and we don't leave her with just anyone. From the moment we got to know Michele and her family, we felt so comfortable leaving her. We got daily text updates and pictures while we were gone so we knew she was having a great time!

Michele is wonderful - a 5+! Our dog is older, she takes special care to make sure he takes his meds, and keeps a very good eye on his overall health. She has a beautiful warm welcoming home, and I'm always confident Charlie is going to get some good love and attention in addition to being well taken care of.

Michele's home and family is Sadie's favorite place when we're away! Actually I just picked her up this morning...she's laying here head on her paws staring at me...Yeah Mom...I love "Aunt Michele"!

Thank you Michele and family for loving our girl while we were away. Such a relief to not not have to worry...Erin and Mark

Mylie, who is 10 years old and very set in her ways, does very well here and Michelle is so good with her. She got more attention and grooming than she gets at home. Mylie never has a problem with the dog and cats who live there or they with her. She gets great care and lots of attention. After a year since her first visit, I was not hesitant to go there again or even consider any other place. This is the only place I will consider if I need to leave her again and have recomended her to others who also had a good experience.

I dropped Sadie off....she seemed curious/excited to be there. Michele , Sadie and I had done a meet and greet early. My husband picked Sadie up...said she was a happy camper! Michele has her own pupper...plus kids....all perfect for Sadie! Michele and her family embraced Sadie during her time with them. I will use Michele again!
Thanks Michele! Erin and Mark.

I was really happy with Michelle. She was very nice, accommodating, and flexible for us. I was very comfortable leaving my dog with her, and she was extremely understanding about his oddities. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Michele and her family took wonderful care of our 2 dogs. We have never felt good about leaving our dogs in a kennel, and we are so happy to have found a loving home that our dogs will be safe and happy in. We no longer have to worry about our dogs while we are away on a vacation. Thank you Michele!!

Dexter loves his sleep overs with Michele and family. It was really great that he got a little brushing too!
We were on a camping trip and spontaneously decided to come to Seattle. With the long weekend ahead our options for dog boarding were zero and Michele handled our last minute request like a champ. Our 2 year old lab absolutely loved her stay there. By the time I left, she was playing with Michele's dog Greta like they were long lost friends. Our dog had a little lump on her cheek, that Michele kept an eye on as well. Once again I had a very pleasant experience on dogvacay. Michele really exceeded all expectations and I feel like our pup had a great time there. I can only recommend leaving your pooch with her. Thanks again, Michele!

This was my first experience with DogVacay and it couldn't have gone better. I had to be out of town for a last minute trip, and I was unable to make arrangements to bring my Kyla. Michele was the first and only host I contacted. She replied immediately and maintained great communication throughout. We went for a meet-and-greet and Kyla got along famously with their Greta, Maisy, and Sasha. They have a lovely home and family; I am very confident in referring Michele to anyone and everyone. My Kyla was so happy that I almost felt guilty for picking her up so soon. Thanks Michele!

Michele and her family made Lance feel welcome and comfortable during his first stay with them. They are very good with dogs and we are happy to have found a nice home for him to stay in when we need to be away.
My dog Tigger loved his say with Michele! He had lots of attention and cuddles and I was updated with photos everyday. He's probably pretty bored being back at home with me :)
I'm glad we found Michelle's dog vac ! It's very good , clean and caring home , all reservation and meet and greed went extremely smooth !
Boo came out with a big smile and a tail vag !
I'm impressed as of how good was his stay and will recommend Michelle's dog vac to all my friends and we will be back !

Once again, Michele was awesome!!! Our dog Bauer loved his stay once again. It is obvious that he has a blast living with her, her family, and her awesome dog Greta. She keeps us updated with pictures through text message and has a very flexible schedule. We LOVE having Michele as a reliable dog sitter.

After visiting with Michelle at her home, I felt totally confident this was the place for my baby. I didn't check any further. Mylie was totally comfortable with their dog which isn't always the case. Michelle was comfortable with the fact Mylie can't do stairs and said she would carry her. When I picked Mylie up after 8 days, she was happy to see me but also didn't seem to care if she left or not. I have no complaints and would not hesitate to leave her in Michelle's care again. She's very responsible and caring.

I felt like I was leaving our dog with a caring and responsible family, not just someone looking to make a few bucks. Michele was very accommodating for a change in the pickup time which I appreciate.
This is the second time that our dog has stayed with Michele, and I honestly think he is sad to come home when we pick him up - he loves it there! Michele is such an awesome host, and her dog Greta is an absolute sweetheart. My wife and I could not be happier, and we will be going to Michele exclusively in the future for our dog sitting needs.

Michele is a "5" star PAWESOME dog care-giver!!

Both our Sadey and Sabra spent Christmas week (2013) with Michele and her family and despite all normal holiday festivities Michele welcomed our girls with open arms!!...Couldn't have asked for anyone better!

"Thanks Michele...BIG Hugs from me and Lots of Licks from Sadey and Sabra"!! :)

Michele and her family were absolutely perfect for our dog Bauer! She was extremely welcoming and accommodating, and her house was a perfect place for pets. You can really tell that she and her family really love dogs. Michele's dog, Greta, is a sweetheart and gets along with other dogs amazingly well...Greta laid out the red carpet almost as well as Michele did! Michele kept us updated throughout our vacation with pictures and messages to further provide assurance that our dog was enjoying his DogVacay. It is such a relief to have found such a good dog sitter as Michele, and we will definitely be returning to her for any future dog sitting needs. I really couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience.
