About Michelle

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a single mother of a 13-YO boy. We have had dogs and many other animals over the years. We lost our beloved Golden Retriever, Maggie, two years ago. I live in a wonderful neighborhood with a large fenced in yard and care for four neighborhood friends dogs all of the time. The dogs get let out of their homes just to go to the bathroom and they come running to my home. They love, love being here with me and my son. We would love to watch your dogs here as well. I also have a cat, Sissy. I fostered her at two weeks old and had to keep her. She gets along with all dogs that have ever been in my home. We will play, play with your dog/dogs and they will never be bored.

DROP OFF AND PICK UP TIMES: 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Michelle was nice enough to take our fur kids last minute just for a night. She always welcomes them with open arms! It was there second stay and they always come home exhausted like they had the best time. They even knew her house as soon as we pulled up! I love that they have a safe place to stay and that our rambunctious boxer has a large yard to run around with kids to wear him out! lol We will definitely use her again!

Michelle and her son were the best sitters for our Great Dane pup. We will most definitely use their service in the future. The fenced in yard and play dates with other dogs made our pup feel like she was at a resort. Plus we got pictures and video while we were gone which our boys loved. Thanks guys for a job well done. Sorella sends her love

After having a really bad experience that was traumatizing for both us and our dog Cairo at a boarding facility, it was difficult to even think of leaving him anywhere ever again. When we had no choice and had to leave him somewhere again we took a chance on Michelle thanks to the wonderful reviews that she had received on this site, and literally we could not be happier! Her and her son Beckett did a wonderful job with our dog Cairo. Normally when we leave him somewhere we stress out the entire time we're gone about his well being, but getting regular updates from Michelle with pictures was so relieving, we knew he was in good hands! He looked so happy with them! We have never picked him up from anywhere before without him being extremely stressed and anxious. When we went to pick him up from their place, he was cuddling with Michelle's son on the couch and was happy to see us, but in no way anxious to leave. We will definitely be leaving Cairo with Michelle again. We are so grateful to Michelle and Beckett for giving Cairo a loving and wonderful vacation! The idea of leaving Cairo somewhere when we leave, is no longer a stressful idea to us thanks to Michelle!

I am so happy that I found Michelle on DogVacay! I feel comfortable and confident that my dog will be taken care of, played with and get all the attention he needs. I definitely will be using Michelle again in the near future!
I would highly recommend Michelle to other dog owners! Michelle and her son are wonderful hosts to our two puppies. She is very accommodating to our crazy schedule responds promptly to any question or concern, and provides little updates throughout their stay, so that I never have to worry. Based on their smiles, I know my dogs love staying there as well!

Patch had a great time. Michelle sent pics of him and his play friends throughout his stay. I've already told my friends who have dogs and I've rescheduled for another stay.
My dog Joey stayed at Michelle W.'s overnight last week in preparation for a longer, 2-week stay, starting next week. Michelle passed the test with flying colors. Clearly Joey had a great time, and my anxiety at leaving her for so long has totally been alleviated. Michelle is an obviously very caring person, and I already have been recommending her to all my dog owner friends. I'm thrilled that I found this web site, and through it, this wonderful place for my dog to stay when I'm away. Best experience!

EXCELLENT. My dog had a great day and made great friends
Great communication, everything was smooth.
Everything went smoothly. Michelle was a really good communicator and very sweet as well.
I was super hesitant to use someone I didnt know, but Michelle and her son are fantastic! She was super flexible and accommodating. They were warm and friendly and Agnes quickly felt comfortable. She communicated with me thoughout my vacation with pictures and messages. Without hesitation, Agnes will visit Michelle again!!!! :)

My dog cannot wait to stay with Michelle again. I highly recommend her!
Michelle was wonderful! We left our babies with her for 8 days and they almost didn't want to leave when we picked them up! She sent us videos and pictures of them while we were away and it gave us so much peace to know they were happy and so well taken care of! We hardly ever leave our fur kids because we worry so much for them but words can't express how great Michelle and her son were with them! Our dogs came home happy and exhausted like they were at the best summer camp and tried to tell us all about it lol. They now have a second home when we are away!

Felt very comfortable leaving our dog with Michelle and her son
Michelle is so amazing! She was very flexible with our schedule and times, which helped us tremendously because we are very last minute vacationers! She sent us daily updates and pictures of Cooper and truly treated him as part of the family! We have never been so at ease while on vacation! We will definitely be bringing Cooper back!
