About Mike

We are Mike and Michelle. Mike is retired. Michelle works from home. We are empty-nesters. When our children left home, we became overly attached to our three rescue dogs, and we would like to become overly attached to your dog, too. Between the two of us, we are home 90% of the time. We have three male dogs who are sociable, like to play fetch, tug-of war, and go for walks.

This was the second stay for our 15-year old dog Rosie. They treated her with such care. They dispensed her meds, gave her lots of love and returned her healthy and happy after a 37-night stay. We have complete trust in their ability to keep our dogs safe, which makes our time away worry-free.

Maxwell loved staying here. He didn't want to leave when I picked him up. Mike & Michelle take great care of him. I've recommended him to several neighbors looking for sitters.
Charlie and Allie definitely enjoyed their stay! When we got home they were still looking around for their new friends. Thank you for inviting them into your home with open arms and for the picture that you texted us during our trip. Having them stay with you really brought us peace of mind knowing that they were taken care of 24/7. We will definitely be back again soon.

Mike and Michelle were gracious hosts to my Brittany Spaniel while I was out of town for a few days. I usually board my dog, but I wanted to let her stay in a more comforting environment this time. I communicated with the hosts and made arrangements to meet up ahead of time, see their home and make sure all the dogs got along together. I provided instructions with some general notes and they seemed to appreciate that. During the stay, the hosts texted me a few photos so I could see how she was doing. It was so nice to stay in touch and have a little more peace of mind. My dog was on oral medication and ear drops and Mike and Michelle were happy to administer it throughout the stay. Booking the reservation on the website was easy too. I would definitely book a stay again at Dogwood Lodge.

Mike and Michelle were both so welcoming and so flexible and accommodating. Riley loved spending the weekend with them and their three dogs. I loved seeing the pictures of Riley Mike texted to me and I have already booked our next trip with them! I feel so relieved knowing I have found a wonderful family for Riley while I am out of town.

Mike was exceptional with Cloud and Roth, he accommodated in every way to make sure our children felt as comfortable as possible away from home. Mike and his lovely wife even kept us up-to-date on their day through photos. They were extremely flexible on our pick up and drop off times which was huge! We did a meet and greet and their attention to detail and genuine interest in our kids made us feel very comfortable. Our pups have a unique diet and I know they followed it exactly (something I can tell due to their need for the special food). When we arrived to pick them up after 4 days, they appeared much happier than anytime they had returned from a stay in a pet hotel. We will definitely use Mike again in the future!

Skye: Wow, Mike's dogs were so much fun to play with and Mike was home with me all the time. What a great Vacay Mom and Dad gave me!!! I hope that they had as much fun as I did!

Pam: Mike is such a dog lover and his dog's are now Skye's new best friends. They are sweet and playful. She got to play with the dogs the whole time. Mike works from home and was very attentive to Skye's needs. He made sure she got her meds.

Thank you to Mike and Michelle! The girls had great stay and they will be back!
We couldn't have had a better experience for our 2 dogs! We were afraid to leave our dog that needs medication with anyone. They took special care with her and her meds. The emails and photo updates we received relieved all our worries. (Now we have vacation photos of our dogs' vacation!) Our big dog found playmates with their 2 dogs and is sad to leave her friends. Both of our dogs were very well taken care of and came home happy and healthy. Thank you very much Mike and Michelle.
