About Michelle

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
14 years ago I adopted Charles and people commended me for saving his life because he was born in the Humane Society and had at least three homes I know of before we found one another. I assure you Charles saved me, too. Broke my heart to say goodbye after 13 years together and I never thought I could get another dog. Then I met Louie, the funniest, most cuddly dog who healed my broken heart, again. We are so lucky to have the loving creatures and I decided I would like to help take care of more. I will provide the kind of care I would want someone to give to my loved ones. I have a large outdoor area surrounded completely by a fence. There is enormous diversity of sun and shade and dirt or grass or cement that my dog enjoys playing outside and entertains himself exploring without fear he could wander or get into danger. I grew up with a poodle and cat living in my house and numerous other animals including birds, turtles, horses, even cows! When I was much younger I contemplated becoming a veterinarian but later did not like dissecting animals. I am currently a graduate student so I am home a lot reading and writing, anyway. I enjoy the company these sweet animals provide.

Michelle was a wonderful host. She took really good care of Moops who had so much fun playing catch and sunbathing.
She was great about sending me updates and photos and was super quick to respond. Definitely would recommend her to anyone. Thanks, Michelle!

Michelle was great to my little boy, Ouzo. I have only boarded him 3 other times in his life (he's 9 now) and Michelle made him feel safe and comfortable. I liked that she only took care of 2 other dogs (one of which is hers, Louie) over the Thanksgiving holiday which made it easier for Ouzo to feel comfortable with his new companions. She sent lots of pictures and texts which made me feel good to see that Ouzo was being taken such good care of and he was doing fine. Which in turn, helped me to enjoy my vacation even more. Would definitely recommend her to others!

Michelle was great. We have booked her twice and would book her again. She has a fenced backyard, which is so nice for the dogs.
