Michelle was very responsive and took very good care of Theo.
She replied the request in a timely manner and suggested a meet and greet to make sure Theo and the other pals would get along.
I could coordinate dropoff and pickup very easily and she was very responsive to send me updates and pictures of Theo.
That was his first time sleeping over and she made me feel very comfortable.
This was the longest I'd ever been away from Bailey and Maggie at one time, and I'd been nervous about leaving them with someone new while I was so far away for so many days. Michelle took great care of them and kept me up to date on how they were doing while I was away, and sent photos to show how they were making themselves comfortable in her home in no time. They were happy and tired when I came to pick them up this morning, and I have no doubt they were in good hands!
Was very satisfied with Michelle's care of Harley. I recommend her without reservation.
I had a party Friday night and needed someone to watch Jackson for me. Time got away from me. Looking at the reviews, Michelle looked like a perfect match. I contacted her and let her know my situation. We arranged a Meet-n-Greet and took my Jackson later the same day.

I texted Michelle that night because my pickup time changed. She sent me a picture of Jackson and was flexible on pickup. I will definitely use Michelle again. Jackson came home tired and happy from his play day.
No comments.
Was nervous like any other pet parent, but knew when I met Michelle that this Vacay was going to be terrific for my boys!
They were obviously spoiled and we'll cared for by the pics she sent me, and they came home tired but content. Great socialization for them with other pets and people! Definitely not a kennel environment where they are caged up, and left alone all nite!
After our meet and greet with Michele, we knew this was the vacay home for our beloved English bulldog Tuffy. He took to Michelle and her family as if he knew them for years. She sent me text with photos each day we were away and there was no question in our mind that Tuffy was happy and content. We have already scheduled Michelle for our next weekend get away. I highly recommend her.
Michelle was great I was having a really crazy morning and she came out to the car and loving took Sasha and calmed her down. She made me feel very good about leaving her for such a long time. Michelle sent me pictures to work which is wonderful to know she is doing good. I picked her up and she was happy as could be sleep great that night..
This is our second visit with Michelle and she does a wonderful job. She takes the time to make sure Walt is comfortable and feels at home. Also her large backyard is heaven for any dog who loves to run and play!
Awesome host. Kept us up to date and love our dog just as much as we do. Thank you.
Our first time with Michelle won't be our last. Michelle was very flexible with our schedule. After meeting her you knew your dog would be in good hands. Her yard is a dog's dream. I know Sparky had a great time and we enjoyed our vacation knowing his was being taken care of. Thanks again Michelle, we'll see you soon.
I loved her! She took good care of my dogs for the night Ana I highly recommended her! Can't wait to use her the other weekends I have planned!
We had had two bad experiences at a boarding facility for our sweet girl, Tilly, so we did some research for alternatives and decided to give Michelle a try. The meet and greet went very well, so we booked two nights of boarding for a short trip. Michelle was great at understanding that our girl has some neurotic quirks (fear of flooring, doorways, stairs, etc). Michelle made the transition to her home very easy by coming out to get our pup from the car and walking her through the back gate straight into the yard. This helped a ton! I know that our girl displayed some fears while at Michelle's house (which we expected she might), but she did not come home ridden with anxiety...and that was a blessing. She did come home tired, and we will take that! Overall a very good experience, and we will be happy to use Michelle again for our boarding needs!
Michelle was great to work with! She set up a meet and greet so that we were all comfortable before Trooper stayed with her. Michelle answered my messages quickly and best of all Trooper had a great experience .
Michelle gave my dog, Samson the attention and consideration that he needs. On February 22, 2016, Samson had a fist size cancerous mass removed from his abdomen. One of his kidneys was also removed because the mass was attached to it.
I cooked a healthy diet for Samson and Michelle encouraged him to eat by hand feeding him. She provided him with affection and nurtured him.
I highly recommend Michelle as an excellent care taker and Samson met friendly dogs at her home.
Thank you Dog Vacay for your excellent website
Michelle is a great host for my dog Dempsey! She is accommodating and easy to get in touch with. I've rebooked several times with her and will definitely continue to do so in the future. I can't say enough good things about her and feel like my dog is well taken care of. Highly recommend
Michelle was excellent! This was my first time using a dog sitting service and it was a great experience. My two (very large) dogs loved her. I appreciated the photo updates, and her flexibility with scheduling. Very trustworthy and a genuine dog lover!!
Our dog really likes it here, and I know he has a good time because he sleeps for days after!!!
I am a dog sitter with Dog Vacay but until now have never boarded my own dogs so this gave me a different point of view,the view of the customer rather then the dog sitter,so this was a learning experience.Michelle did a fine job, kept me up to date so I wouldn't worry ,which of course I was worrying ,never having had my dogs boarded before.I wasn't sure how they would behave in a strangers care.But all worked out fine and I would certainly use Michelle again and would highly recommend her as a dog sitter.

Michelle was great! Drop off and pick up was super easy and she was so good with my pup! Would definitely use her in the future!
Michelle took excellent care of our two border collies while we were on vacation. Upon drop off, Michelle took the extra time to go over all of my questions and concerns in detail. Our youngest dog had just recently undergone her spay surgery and we needed Michelle to help maintain the healing process. She was wonderful and everyday kept her suture area clean. Michelle also
gave us good updates on her recovery throughout their stay via messages and pictures. Our dogs loved Michelle's outdoor area and the other dogs that she was sitting for at the time. Michelle is the first person that we have felt comfortable leaving our dogs with and we will definitely be using her services
again in the future. We highly recommend her!
Michelle was truly exceptional with our black lab, Drake. We didn't want to leave him at a kennel and Michelle made us feel completely comfortable leaving him for the first time since we got him. Once we met her for our meet and greet, we knew she'd be the one. You can tell immediately that Michelle connects with dogs and they connect with her. She texted us updates on how well our dog was doing during his stay, even before we had a chance to ask! Michelle is now our go to for when we need a reliable and professional dog sitter and she should be yours as well.
Axel had the best time staying with Michelle and her family. He is particularly attached to her daughter and was showered with attention. He is a small dog and I was nervous because he is a mama's boy... He was treated like royalty!! He cannot wait to go back!
Best place to take your pooch.

I have struggled to find a suitable place for my border collie, Semoure. Franchise boarding places simply overwhelm him. After you introduce him to the kids and the beagle puppy, I relaxed. I could tell you have years of experience.

When I could not get back from Philadelphia on time, I called. It wasn't an issue at all. I really appreciate your flexibility. I look forward to bringing Semoure back over the holidays.

Thank You!
