About Michele

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a spacious house in a great neighborhood. We have plenty of couches to lounge on, windows to stalk squirrels through, and a medium-size fenced grassy backyard to play in.

I am a part-time college student, and the longest I am out of the house is about 4 hours. I take dogs in my care on walks every day, with extra playtime in my fenced backyard. The fence is only 2 feet tall on one side, so not ideal for escape artists. In the interest of keeping my family and neighbors happy, dogs that I care for must not bark excessively, and must be house-trained!

I have cared for puppies and seniors, deaf and blind dogs, and dogs with physical limitations. My profile indicates that I only accept dogs under 20 pounds, but this only applies to new clients. Please note that several of my existing clients are larger (20-100 lbs), and friendly with small dogs.

The dogs have free access to the entire first floor, and are welcome on the couches! At night, your dog can sleep in his crate, dog bed, my bed, or the couch. I utilize baby gates and exercise pens to prevent door dashing, separate the dogs during meal times, and time outs if two dogs aren't getting along.

We have a smoke-free home, no resident children, and no cats. I usually watch anywhere between 1 and 6 dogs at a time, and from multiple families. Weekends and holidays are usually busy! No crates required, though you are welcome to bring one.

Michele is a JOY! We have never boarded our Yorkie with anyone but the breeder, and my wife found Michele on DV.

We had a meet and greet and she was the perfect combination of laid-back and attentive.

We told her that Redd slept with us at night. Not wanting him to feel deprived, she let him sleep with her that night.

When we picked him up, he was calm, rested, but seemed a bit worn out from his play time.

We have 2 more stays with her so far in 2017.
Michele is the BEST. Our little girl is quite timid (hides behind me) - she takes a while to warm up. Michele was just the right fit - just like my daughter and Chloe loved her from the beginning. When we picked Chloe up, she was happy and interacting with the other dogs.

I will definitely use Michele again - Chloe (and we) Love Her!!!!
Michele is a delightful person. She is very kind and loving. I would highly recommend her to be a host for your dog. My dog did very well at her home.
Ozzy loves spending time with Michele. It is truly a vacation for him that includes his favorite activities. Ozzy loves to play, and Michele is committed to making him happy. The photo posts she sends gives our boys a good feeling about his care and comfort.

We are thankful to have Michele for Ozzy as it gives us the flexibility to travel!
Michelle is fabulous. We feel completely at ease while our dog is in her care.
Michelle did a great job. I explained to her
that my oldest (10 yr. old Yorkie) was a bit scared
around other dogs and was pleased to find that
only an elderly dog was there so my Yorkie was fine.
I used another sitter from DogVacay that I told that to and I was stunned when I dropped off my dogs and there were 3 other dogs there jumping all over
her and scaring her even though I was promised there wouldn't be. I was on the way to the airport and I felt so bad leaving my dog there.
Michele has a sweet little dog that my dogs were totally fine with. If you need a sitter who listens and provides a stress free environment, Michelle is the way to go! She has a gentle demeanor and dogs pick up on that.
Elsa loves going to Michele's. She is caring with Elsa and I feel like I'm leaving Elsa with a family member!
Neither Bel or Duncan had ever been boarded, so staying with Michele was an ideal situation vs. a traditional facility. Michele gets the small dog mentality and worked to make them feel at home. The photo updates were wonderful, and helped put our minds at ease while we were away.
Thanks Michelle for taking great care of Harley! He had another great time with you!
My Elsa loves going to Michele's house for vacay and I love knowing that Elsa is in Michel's loving hands.
Thank you Michele for the care you give my little "fur-baby"! I feel so comfortable knowing she is so well taken care of! Thank you
Michele is so sweet and treats Elsa with kindness- like she is one of the family! I know Elsa loves going to Michele's because she runs around like she knows and owns the place! Thank you Michele
Rocco had a great time with Michele. She was quick to respond to any messages and accommodating with our drop off and pickup times. We received daily photo and video updates which made us feel comfortable during our trip. Well look to book again during our next travels.
My dogs had a great time for their first stay with Michele. Michele was super accommodating and understanding given this was a new environment for both of them, and I could tell they enjoyed their visit because they were happy and relaxed when I picked them up! Thank you Michele, for taking great care of the boys!
Michele was very flexible and everything went great. She sent photo updates throughout the weekend. My dog, Kylie seemed to be very well cared for and had a great time playing with the other dogs. When the need arises, we will definitely be contacting Michele again!
Michele was wonderful with our puppy! We were nervous because our dog is a little scared of other dogs, but it went great and our dog seemed to grow socially! We really appreciated the written updates and pictures that Michele provided.
Michelle is an excellent host. It's hard to imagine a better caregiver for our dog. The end date was September 16, not the 18th. Please make the change.
Ozzy is always safe and sound with Michelle!!
I spent a week away and didn't worry for one minute about Ozzy being cared for by Michelle. He is so happy to be with her and the other dogs in her care. She is wonderful!!
I was in a pinch and Michelle came through for me!!!
I never worry about Ozzy when he is staying with Michelle!! She is great with the dogs in her care!
Our 2 pups love Michele and had a wonderful time staying with her in her beautiful home and great fenced yard. We are lucky to have her so close by. They will be back for more in a few weeks!
Michele was great with Roxy. So much better than leaving her in a kennel. I especially loved the photos so I could see how she was doing while we were away.
Michele is an awesome doggy host! Excellent communication, flexible, understanding, and she treated Henry like one of her own. Highly recommend Michele and will definitely use her again.
Ozzy had another great stay!
Our dog is excited to stay with Michelle. What a good feeling when you drop your dog off.
Michele was so great! Our dog Sadie seemed very happy. She is blind and also takes medication twice a day, so she's a little more difficult than the average dog. Michele was so good with her and even updated me during Sadie's stay with pictures! We will definitely use Michele next time we go out of town, as well as recommend her to friends with dogs. :) Thank you, Michele!
Michele was able to take Ozzy on short notice and it was great to know he was safe and sound while I was away!!
Michele treated our dog splendidly, so much so that he was hesitant to get in the car with me when I picked him up! I will definitely use Michele in the future.
This was Ozzy's second stay and all went well. It's such a good feeling to know that Michele is taking such good care of him while I am away!
Michele is great! She provides a wonderful home away from home. Ozzy was relaxed and well cared for. He will return for another stay soon!
Ozzy's overnight was in prep for a longer stay. It was a good time for them to get to know each other and I feel good about leaving him there for his week long stay coming up. Thank's Michelle!
We had a great experience with Michele as our dog sitter. She is professional, responsible, and kind. Our dog was well taken care of and we would use Michele again.
Rocco had a great experience. Michele was an attentive host and made Rocco really feel welcome in her home.Thanks Michele!
