About Randy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our home is located right in the heart of the University and the Ravine in Edmonton, which gives us the perfect place to take your 4 legged family member for walks in a beautiful park.

Our family loves dogs. I have owned 1 to 2 Bull Mastifs and a lab over the last 20 years so I have lots of experience raising and caring for dogs. Right now our family has a senior cat and a senior dog and we have lots of love and time to care for yours.

We do not currently have a fully fenced back yard but it is in the works, but don't worry, all our guest are welcome to sleep inside. If your dog prefers to sleep in a crate, please bring it or their favourite dog bed or blanket . Bring your dog by and come check us out.

Go on your vacay while your dog enjoys its with us.

Michael and his family are amazing. They took wonderful care of our Greater Swiss Mountain dog, Cole. Thanks for keeping us updated throughout our extended vacation. It was a big relief to know Cole was so well looked after. Amazing!!!!
Our dog had a great time with Michael and his family! Plenty of walks and company for our very social/active dog. We received videos and pictures which allowed us to enjoy our time away without worrying about her care. Highly recommend!
This stay was due to a change in our travel plans. Michael was extremely accommodating and understanding. Thank you.
Pongo had a wonderful dog vacay experience with Michael and his family. Pongo loved his stay with them.
We are always thankful that Michael and his family look after Rico when we are away. Rico always has a good time and there is no shortage of love in the home. Thanks Michael, Pernille, Max and Dex!
Didn't meet the family but Michael was lovely and my dog was happy and tired when I get her back! :)
Scamp seemed happy and had had a bath when we picked him up. Especially like their calm demeanor.
Michael was very accommodating for drop off and pick up times. Our dog was well taken care of.
Michael and his family became Abby's (our dog) second family. Pretty sure she had more fun there than with us. Loved the pics it was easy to see that she had a ball. Totally recommend they!! Monica
Rico has stayed with Michael and his family on a few previous occasions. They are a caring family that are in a fantastic location for walking in the Mill Creek Ravine. As long as they are still taking pets into their home, I will always try to have Rico stay with them.

We can't thank Michael, Pernille, Max and Dexter enough for taking such good care of Chai! Having recently moved from Ontario our Weimaraner had never been left with anyone other than family. By chance we came across DogVacay and set up a meet and greet with Michael. Within minutes we knew we had lucked out and found a great place for Chai. Michael and his family went above and beyond even allowing Chai to snuggle in bed with them! Their loving home has a relaxed and caring feel. Michael even sent pictures and little updates while we were on our trip which not only brought a smile to our faces but set our minds at ease. Without hesitation we would highly recommend Michael. Many thanks!!

This was our first experience with dog vacay, it was great! Michael and his family made us feel very relaxed about leaving our 8 month old puppy for the first time. Very accommodating, would definitely use them again.
Our baby boy, Gus the Husky, had an awesome time during his vacay stay with Michael and his fam. As a matter of fact, my wife and I believe he had a better 3-week vacation than we did :P. Michael and his beautiful family showed nothing but love to Gus when we first met during the Greet and Meet. We felt very comfortable with them right away and knew that we would be worry-free if we left Gus with them. We highly recommend Michael and truly appreciate his caring for Gus during the stay. Michael will always be our and Gus's one and only choice if Gus ever needs to go on vacay in the future and we believe he will be your one and only choice too!!

Great hosts! Highly recommended!! Absolutely pawsome!!!

Michael and his wife Pernille and their children Maximus & Dexter are a very kind and caring family. They were all very friendly to us and our fur babies right from the start.

Due to a careless mistake on our last dog sitter's behalf, our Choc Lab almost died because of a preventable mistake which left us very traumatized and very apprehensive to leave our fur babies with anyone again … but after talking to Michael on the phone for over 30 minutes before booking, he seemed very caring and knowledgeable which put our minds at ease. Upon meeting him and his family we felt assured about leaving our fur babies in their hands for 8 nights.

We have 3 fur babies - Hershey: an 8 lb - 3 yr old Chihuahua, Tayla: a 12 lb - 2 yr old Chihuahua/Corgi mix, both rescues from California, & Dax: an 80 lb - 8 yr old Choc Lab. Their history - Hershey came from a life on the streets so bolting was his speciality, Tayla came from an abusive life on the streets leaving her very anxious and guarded so leaving her with strangers for the first time was very worrisome, and Dax unfortunately suffers with a permanent back injury due to a drunk quadder who ran him over while camping a few years ago which resulted in daily meds and a necessary daily walk otherwise he suffers in pain and seizes up … but with the awesome care of Michael and his family, they all came home happy and healthy! We were very pleased to hear that our two little Chihuahua’s were allowed to sleep with their children because they always sleep with us, and Dax was allowed to sleep in his bed on the floor at the end of Michael and Pernille's bed because he does the same with us. That in itself showed their love for dogs and spoke volumes to us!

In addition to Michael and his family being kind, caring, friendly and knowledgeable, they were also very easy going, patient and very accommodating especially with the drop off and pick up times.

Overall, we were very pleased with the care our fur babies received ... as well as thankful to them for helping us regain comfort and confidence in boarding again. We will definitely use their services again!!!

Michael responded to messages promptly and was able to accommodate my meet and greet request. Very friendly and kind family.
Left Karma for the weekend, with no problems. Pretty sure Karma left with a crush on his youngest son, Dexter. I would definitely let Karma stay with them again :)

Padme stayed with Michael an his family for two weeks last December. We can tell she had a blast, made new friends and was extremely well cared for. Padme was comfortable right from the meet and greet, she warmed up to hosts immediately. Thank you so much for peace of mind while we were away, we will bring her back for sure!

We left Rico with Michael and his family back in October. It was absolutely the best experience we have had leaving our dog behind. The family is great and the location is incredible. I think Rico needed a vacation after his vacation! Thank you Michael, Pernille, Max and Dex for looking after Rico so well. I will definitely book again!

Our two dogs had a great stay at Michael's home! At the meet and greet, it was clear that the dogs felt comfortable with Michael's easy going, friendly manner as well as in his home. He is a very perceptive and intuitive animal lover. During their stay, we received lovely photos of our dogs enjoying the company of his family. The dogs came home well exercised and happy! It was a great experience for us all and I'm lucky to have found such a great place for our dogs to take a vacation. Thank you Michael!

It can be stressful to leave a loved family member with a sitter. However, after our first meet n greet with Michael and his family all of our concerns were put to rest. We and our dog Katie were completely comfortable with Michael, his wife and lovely children from the get go. Their ease and manner with Katie immediately showed they'd be great hosts.
Although she likes to play Katie also needs her alone time and Michael and his family were quick to notice, playing with her when she was in the mood and gave her space when she needed it.
I would highly recommend Michael and his family as hosts for your pet.

Michael and his family welcomed Tinker into their home with open arms and took very good care of him. They went for hikes and played outside in the backyard. The photos, video and reports of his activities were wonderful. I am very fortunate to have found such a great family to care for Tinker while I'm away!

Riley and Brooklyn's stay with Michael and his family was awesome. We received photos of our dogs while we were away and they obviously received lots of loving care, attention and walks as they returned home happy and contented. Sherilyn
Louie loved staying with this very loving family so much so that when it came time to leave he hid in the couch hoping not to be found. I really appreciated the flexibility with the time I could drop Louie off as well as pick him up. Louie sometimes struggles with large dogs and children but he seemed to overcome these issues at their home. I received regular text's and pictures of Louie which was comforting while being away from my dog.
