About Michelle

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Michelle, and I have a house full of animal lovers! I have had dogs all of my adult life, and have been a dog sitter for friends' dogs for years. I find that having kids and dogs around is endlessly entertaining, enriching and fun! My children are 9, 5 & 3 and we are all ready to shower your dogs with affection. We have plenty of space inside and out for him/her to run around. The pups can go outside and play in the fenced in yard whenever they want. We have about 1/3 acre open grassy yard enclosed by a 44" fence. Our dog is an unknown mix (she looks like a huge Jack Russell), is 2 years old, about 50 lbs, fixed, energetic and friendly after a brief bout of barking at a new dog. Every dog will get a walk in the morning. This is an ideal home away from home for your pet, but if you have any doubts on your dog being around kids, please choose another host. My kids are very affectionate, and will want to hug and love on any guests,
As a Stay-at-home-mom of 3 young kids, I am home much of the day, but I do have to leave the house for 1-2 hours at times. Our dog is crated when we aren't home. If a crate is not provided, and there are any risks of accidents, I will confine your dog(s) to the laundry room with toys and a water bowl for no more than 2 hours. He/she can go in the backyard anytime I'm home and will be invited outside at least every 2 hours.

Cody had a great stay with Michelle! Our boy is a little quirky, doesn't like to eat his food (Wants what you are having), and likes to get his nose into things. However right from the start, we knew he would be well taken care of. Within hours, into things. However right from the start, we knew he would be well taken care of. Within hours, Michelle texted us a picture of Cody settling in (takin gover the lounger) and every day sent us a picture and an update. We will use MIchelle again - and you should too!

We have never left our 20 lb. Cavachon 2 yr old 'Charlie' who is so spoiled and not used to other dogs and very timid with new people. Staying with Michelle and family was the BEST EXPERIENCE ever! He took to Michelle immediately and loved the Michelle and family was the BEST EXPERIENCE ever! He took to Michelle immediately and loved the kids. Michelle kept me at ease by sending lots of pictures and updates. So cute to see him interact with the other dogs (Harley is now his buddy for life) and snuggling with the kids. I highly recommend Michelle and know that my baby was loved, cuddled, and happy!

Michelle was amazing!

Her environment (fenced yard and furniture available) was great for my Samwise, and her family gave him plenty of attention.

Michelle even sent me near-daily text messages (!) with cute photos of Samwise snuggling with attention.

Michelle even sent me near-daily text messages (!) with cute photos of Samwise snuggling with one of her kids or eagerly and happily awaiting his food. These kept me feeling connected to Samwise, even though I was in a different time zone.

Michelle happens to be on the other side of town from me, but she will be the first person I look to when I need to travel and can't take Samwise with me.
