About Michael

38 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have 2 dogs that were rescued together. They are very friendly, non-territorial dogs who love new dogs, and love to play, hike, and have fun. My home has a high fenced in back yard, 2 blocks from the Greenbelt. My home is dog proofed, as I have no kids, they are my kids. I have play toys, bully sticks, antlers, balls, etc. if they want to play, or multiple dog beds and couches if they want to lounge and sleep, whatever you, the owner prefer. Whenever I travel, I always have a great time knowing that my dogs are in great hands, and I want to give another dog owner that same peace of mind. Please add $10/day for puppies and holidays.

Michael was absolutely fantastic with our two pups. He sent us pictures of them playing with his dogs (and their dog-friends) as well as during nap-time on the couch. Immense recommendation, he made us feel at ease while away. Really no other way to say how great he was, everything went super smoothly from drop off, to check ups every day, to pick up. Thank you Michael.
Michael is absolutely awesome. Our dog Andy had a great time! Michael wants the dogs twice a day, and gives them plenty of outside time. He sent us lots of videos and pictures while we were gone to let us know how things were going. Michael genuinely loves and understand dogs. Highly recommend!
Michael was AMAZING! I was so nervous about leaving our dog for the first time when we went out of town yet Michael made my wife and I feel so comfortable and relaxed we were able to thoroughly enjoy our trip. I also liked that he specializes in little dogs that way we knew our dog wouldn't feel too overwhelmed surrounded by bigger dogs. Best part was that Michael was constantly sending us photos and videos of our dog so we could see each day what a wonderful time he was having. I would not hesitate to use Michael again. Our dog had such a wonderful stay!
Thank you for looking after Leon, we can tell he had an awesome time!
My dog had a great stay with Michael. He cares a lot about his doggie customers, and he worried about mine being an escape artist. He knew exactly how to take care of her and we both appreciate it! I also appreciated all the pics and video while I was away.
Michael was a great host to our almost 6 month old pup!! Received lots of pics and videos, and she came home very happy and tired from playing with his dogs and other hosted dogs.
We'll definitely be contacting Michael next time we go on vacation!!!
He was good
I cannot express how fantastic DogVacay with Michael was for my dog Scooter. I received multiple pictures and videos from Michael daily, which made this first time dog mom very happy to see that her 'son' was enjoying his time. I would definitely recommend Michael to anyone!
Michael was so great in helping me out of a bind with Oliver when I broke my foot. He is flexible and treats the dogs awesome! Oliver had a blast and was plenty worn out from the fun when he got home. We will be back!
Michael is an amazing host. Your pup will come home happy and exhausted from all the fun and attention! I'll never use a commercial dog boarder again.
Harry and Griffin had a great time.
My Toby loves going to Mike's play house! He has the freedom to play and run around, as well as snooze and nap afterwards. He is in heaven! Mike even gave him his eye drops without any fuss. Couldn't think of a better place for Toby to stay!
My Toby, a foster puppy, was so happy to be at Michael's. From the get go, he played not only with his adorable Rita and Margie, but with Enzo, an additional boarder. Mike has the perfect home for the pups to play and exercise in, and he walks them as well. They are comfortable and happy, and cared for. I so appreciate Mike's care for Toby and will use his services again and again! I just wish he took in larger dogs!! Also, I had a last minute scheduling change, and he was so accommodating>
Michael was so accommodating and Enzo came home happy and healthy! I appreciated the daily photos and videos, as well as the great communication. Highly recommend!
Enzo loved being at Michael's house! Michael was lovely about accomodating Enzo at the last minute, as well as coordinating a drop-off. He sent me photos and videos daily, and made me feel very comfortable with leaving my dog with him.
A dedicated animal lover and attentive host
Michael is great and my dog Finn loves going to his house. He is very accommodating with pickup and drop off times and sends many pictures and videos of Finn playing with his other pups. My dog always comes home happy and ready to take a nap. I highly recommend leaving your dog with Michael!
