About Michael

Hello and welcome to our home!

We are a couple sharing a 720 square feet apartment in a luxury high rise. One of us works from home, so your pet will have the best care and attention all the time.

We both love dogs. I grew up surrounded by a collie, Ambra, a german shepard, Zoe, and a maltese, Apple. Now I only get to see Apple on Google Hangouts and when I visit home in Italy.

We would love to take care of your pet while you're away.

Our home is very clean and quiet, and has very comfy couches that are perfect for your pups to lounge in while you are away. Your pup will get 3 walks per day around our neighborhood plus unlimited indoor playtime at home. If the weather permits, we will also include trips to Central Park!

We are also able to supervise your pup 24x7 and provide transportation to a vet in case of a pup-mergency.

We can't wait to meet you and your dog!

We have left our dog with Michael twice now and he is our go to! He is great, responsible, and shares plenty of pictures and videos of Duke while I am away so I can see how well he is being cared for. Duke is a shy dog and doesn't always like new environments, but he has always been happy when I pick him up. I couldn't recommend them more!
Mike and Francesca were the greatest! I never post reviews but felt compelled to you write one about them. We left our 10 month old puppy with them for a week and they were wonderful and generous with our dog. They sent us abundance of photos so we could see how everything was going. The pictures also showed how much they love dogs! We are lucky to have found them!
Mike and Francesca were fantastic! They sent pictures throughout my pup's overnight stay, so I knew he was having a blast. Would definitely use their services again.
They treated our Millie very well! Tons of photos and videos were sent over the long weekend. Millie was never left alone except for a mutually agreed time when we decided to extend. I highly recommend and would use again.
This was the 2nd time our dog spent the weekend with Michael and Francesca and once again they exceeded our expectations. I received close to 20 photo updates on walks, naps, and cuddles. I very much appreciate all the effort and will be sure to return for another reservation :-)
Very responsive and flexible with taking care of my dog during the stay. Also sent lots of great pictures!
This was the first time I used DogVacay and I have only good things to say about Michael and Francesca, they are truly great hosts and dog lovers. They made Tosca feel at home and where always in touch keeping me updated.
Michael and Francesca were the perfect hosts to our 7yr old Maltese Poodle. Michael could tell I was anxious leaving the dog and made me at ease throughout the weekend by providing a lot of photo and video updates of park walks, naps and cuddles. I very much appreciate the effort and will definitely request they host our dog again when we're out of the city.
Mike and Francesca did a great job with Maggie. We got pics of our happy pup all weekend!
I would definitely leave my dog with Francesca again. She responded quickly to messages and sent daily pictures of him while I was away. He seemed to have a great time :)
Monty had a great time at Frans! Fran was super responsive from my initial inquiry all the way through the end of Monty's stay. She was flexible when we decided to make an adjustment on our schedule and sent great photos of them playing during the day. She has a beautiful apartment conveniently located in the theater district. Monty is looking forward to visiting Fran again soon.
I left my chihuahua there for one night and they were great. They walked her three times in one evening. Bebe is quite shy with strangers but she warmed up to her hosts and in the morning she was very happy. They made a big effort for that to happen and I appreciate it. I will go back to them again if I am in New York City. Plus their schedule is very flexible.
Gillman had the best time on his #minivacay with Fran! A shy chihuahua, I had only ever left Gillman before with his grandparents, so this was a big step for him! I loved that Fran sent picture updates of Gillman...walking, napping, in his bag...this let me know he was in excellent hands and happy! I'll definitely be using Fran again in the future, two big paws up from Gillman!:-)
