It was a comfort knowing that our dog would be in a home where he would receive attention and okay time. Michelle was very accommodating to our care requests and schedules
Michelle took great care of our Piglet. She was very easy to work with. I know Piglet enjoyed being able to stay in her home and enjoy snuggles instead of being at the kennel.
Boon (5 months) lived his first play day away from home! Michelle made both him and "mama" comfortable and happy.
Michelle was very kind and sweet. She does not take a ton of dogs at the same time and I find that is awesome. I think my pup had a great time with her!
Michelle was gracious & accommodating of my travel schedule & Gracie's many "only dog" quirks. Gracie was relaxed & not stressed at all, when I picked her up.
We were very pleased with the care Louie, our Yorkie, received while we took our two week vacation. Michelle is a very caring person and we would definitely recommend her to anyone for their pet needs. Thanks, Mike and Cathie
Michelle did a fantastic job!!! We loved the pics she sent us daily!! We are looking forward to many more vacation time for Tuffie in her home
Michelle took great care of our two Maltese dogs. She sent photos of them to me while we were away- and could tell they were feeling right at home. Communication with Michelle leading up to the dog visit and during was prompt and concise. Would use Michelle again.
This was our first time using DogVacay and we will be repeat customers. We had a meet-n-greet prior to booking Baley's stay with Michelle. We were looking for a Dog Vacay sitter who is home most of the time because Baley is a velcro dog who has some separation anxiety. Michelle is warm and friendly. She put us at ease and was very understanding of Baley's fears. Baley settled in quickly and was right at home with Michelle and her family. Michelle sent us frequent text updates during Baley's ten day stay. When Baley's stay was over, she came home happy, rested and well cared for. In other words, Michelle cared for Baley as if Baley was her dog.
Zeus was very happy to stay with Michelle and her family.
Lily stayed with Michelle for a week and we couldn't be more pleased. She gave us text/photo updates so we knew things were going well while we were away. Next time we travel if Michelle has room Lily will stay with her and her family again.
Michelle was great and so friendly, our two dogs seemed right at home the minute we arrived. I really appreciated how Michelle updated me and sent pictures throughout our dogs stay.
Michelle was great, took Kuma for walks and sent us pictures throughout the visit. Kuma seemed super happy with her and we didn't have to worry about her at all. Thanks Michelle! :)
This was our first time using DogVacay and it was great! Michelle is very personable and loves dogs. She sent photos of our dogs each day and I could see that they were having a good time. They were very well taken care of. I would leave my "babies" with her again with no hesitation!
Like staying at the Hilton for doggies!
Once again Michelle took care of our little beagle "Lucy" as if it were her own child.

Our dog is about 13 yrs old, very docile but also likes being treated like a person and not a dog. Kennels would never do.

Here she becomes a member of the family just as she is with us.
My first experience with DogVacay and Michelle was fantastic !! I had a last minute need to find someone to take care of my dog, and the whole process was so quick and efficient, that within a few hours it was all set up. As apprehensive as I was, placing my dog in someone's home that I didn't know, that concern evaporated almost immediately upon meeting Michelle and seeing how warm and welcoming she was to my dog. It was very apparent after picking up my dog 3 days later, that she was very happy and had a good time there. I am just thrilled at how this all worked out and it was a pleasure to meet Michelle and know that my dog will be so well cared for.
Michelle was able to take our pup with only a day's notice after plans with a friend fell through. Indy (our lab) always acted strangely after returning from kennels/boarding places, but she obviously got the attention she desires while staying with Michelle. She was her usual happy and playful self immediately upon picking her up. We would definitely use Michelle in the future, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend others!
Our finnicky Lucy might be starting to like Michelle's house more than ours! Fantastic dog sitter and grateful to have found her.
Michelle is an absolute Godsend! She takes care of our finicky little Lucy (older Beagle) as if it were a member of her own family.
Our little guy was so comfortable with her and her adorable family. Buckeye misses them already and can't wait to go back! Thank you for taking such good care of him!
Snowy came home happy and tired! I think he had fun on his vacation as we did on ours.
Michelle is terrific. She offers our doggy a clean home away from home. Our dog is particular and gets just enough combination of attention and quiet time here.
Polly and Henry seemed very happy when I picked them up. The sitter's home was very clean and comfortable for my dogs. I plan to use her again in the future to dog sit.
P.J. loved it!
My dog Bergen had a terrific stay with Michelle, I will certainly use her again!
Excellent pet sitter. Great customer service.
Michelle was very flexible with out drop off time so we could connect at the airport. Sara was treated like a princess - had the run of the house and was very relaxed.
Michelle had Sara out in the neighborhood - so many new places to walk!
Thanks so very, very much!!
Very pleased with Michelle's accepting Sara into her home and making her one of the family! Sara is always a little timid when we leave, but Michelle helped Sara over the hump! Thanks so much!!
My dog stays with Michelle about once a week for daycare. She's a special needs dog because of her advanced age, but Michelle does a wonderful job making her feel at easy and happy. Sally will continue to stay with Michelle on a regular basis.
We had our dog stay with Michelle for 2 1/2 weeks recently. Upon picking up Kobe it was apparent he was well cared for and happy. Michelle kept us informed of Kobe's status during our trip and went the extra mile to take care of him.
It is obvious that Michelle and her family are dog lovers. If you want your pet to stay in a caring home instead of warehoused in a kennel, call Michelle.
Wow was Gracie a happy puppy when I picked her up. Michelle was fantastic and Gracie seemed very happy there and when I picked her up. She was so easy to work with and flexible and a great communicator. Gracie is excited to go back and visit her new best friends.
Our first experience with DogVacay.

Did a meet and greet with Michelle and Cedar and we found her to be a good match!

Like many dogs, Cedar has daily requirements that make him both unique and for some challenging. In Cedar's case he requires his meds twice a day. Michelle had no problems making his cheese balls.

She and her family made our Cedar Boy feel right at home. The text messages and pictures that were sent of Cedar on his vacation were reassuring that all was well.

We will be be using DogVacay and Michelle with full confidence that our boy is in good hands.
Michelle and her family were great for our dog! They were understanding of her "senior" status and were able to cater to her special needs! I would definitely use Michelle again!!!
This was Sara's first time staying with Michelle and the first time staying anywhere for an entire week. Sara did so well on both counts thanks to Michelle and her awesome family. We received lots of pics throughout the week - Sara walking, hanging with another dog, begging for food...she was right at home!.
A big thanks to Michelle for going through a bit more with Sara's holistic food plan and Chinese herbs. We appreciate it so much as Sara has just made mile marker 2 years of surviving a nasal cancer!
Michelle also went out of her way to keep us up to date so we could quit worrying and have a good trip!
We added one more, last minute night to Sara's reservation due to flight changes. Michelle was very accommodating! Sara was so well cared for, relaxed and became family. She never did use her security blanket!
Thanks so much for care, love, and paw-holding!
Michelle was wonderful with our little yorkie! She responded to requests immediately and agreed to meet with me ahead of time so I could meet her and see where my dog would be staying for 10 days. She really set me at ease with her friendliness and love of dogs. She sent me pictures of my happy dog enjoying his stay with Michelle and her family. My dog is a 15 years old and she was great about making sure he was comfortable and getting lots of love. I would highly recommend Michelle if you need someone to watch your loved one.
Michelle and her family welcomed our doggie-boy, Zuma, into their home and made him one of their own. She sent me numerous pics, which was not only heartwarming and thoughtful but also showed me how comfortable he was. In nearly every pic, he is being loved on or just close to one of her kids. He truly looks happy.

Michelle responded to my messages quickly and was very flexible when arranging the reservation. I felt comfortable through the whole process.
Best place to leave your pet!! Great care!!
This was our first time leaving our dog (Buster) for a weekend. Michelle was absolutely great! She was very responsive and sent us numerous pictures of Buster through the course of the weekend which was not requested but extremely appreciated. We felt very comfortable with leaving Buster with Michelle and her family all weekend. We recommend Michelle to anyone and would definitely use her again in the future!
Michelle was extremely helpful and flexible. Oreo enjoyed being in Michelle's care and highly recommend her to anyone without reservation.
We were a little bit nervous to leave our lab with a stranger, but after meeting Michelle and her family they seemed super sweet and you can tell they love dogs. We just picked her up this morning and everything was smooth, easy and we didn't worry about her not having great care while we were away. I highly recommend Michelle, and we will definitely use her again :)!
