About Michelle

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As a former vet tech and dog trainer with extensive experience, I can accommodate pets with special needs, such as medication requirements and minor behavioral quirks. My flat fee includes all types of medications, raw feeding if desired, as well as basic positive reinforcement training and behavior modification. I offer extensive services for a single fee, with priceless dedication and care for your pet(s). In addition, I can take care of dogs of all sizes or multiple pets from the same household.

I will be glad to provide additional photos of my house upon request, to protect my online privacy. The remodeling is finished so the living area is very pet friendly, with easy-to-clean surfaces, few steps in and out, door directly to 5'+ solid fence yard, and other conveniences. Guests are welcome to specify their own preferences and to bring their own creature comforts. We will talk about specifics of care and supervision at length to assure the best experience for each pet(s) and owner.

My Shiloh Shepherd girls, now long gone but never forgotten, and I used to participate in search and rescue, agility, obedience, conformation shows, rally-O, and sheep herding.

Now I spend my time training and exercising rescue dogs kenneled at a nearby facility and offer my love and expertise to care for your pet(s). I am especially partial to the pitbull breed!

All of my services and limitations, if any, are negotiable. I will can possibly accommodate puppies by prior agreement. Since I work, my mother will participate in basic midday care of pets and that will be by prior arrangement. I very much prefer to meet-and-greet all my prospective clients to understand their specific needs and to make sure I am the best host for their preferences. I am typically very flexible in most areas, such as accommodating unusual pet needs, last-minute reservations and cancellations, two pets from the same household, and such. My services are not business but heartfelt expression of my abilities and appreciation for our best friends.

In addition, my mother is now at home full-time, thus someone is available all the time for feeding and breaks. :)

I offer 10% discount for rescue dogs and donate portion of proceeds to Adopt a Homeless Animal rescue.
