About Mike & Ann

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have had dogs in our homes our entire lives along with 6 daughters, and now grand-kids. Our house is open, bright and airy! We have a wonderful, large, fenced yard. Gertie, our older sweet mutt, loved to explore; she recently passed away.
Being a birdhouse builder and a well known potter, someone is almost always at home to chat with our visitors. We can make your "kid" happy and even spoiled while you are out of town or just busy working. The grand-kids love to drop over and have a play with our dog guests! Grandpa's Doghouse has even become part of the community. We enjoyed being involved with the Atlanta Dog Jog as volunteers and vendors. Life is good at Grandpa's Doghouse!

What a great home away from home. Sophie loves to visit Mike and Ann.
Ann and Mike took very good care of my precious pups, Scooter & Biscuit. They are now my "go to sitters" whenever I am out of town :)
Mike and Ann are wonderful. My dog is very comfortable and happy staying in their home.
Auggie had a great time. We appreciate the time and attention Mike and Ann provided our pup as well as the photo updates.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience!! Mike and Ann are responsive, flexible, thoughtful and trustworthy. They worked with my schedule for drop off and pick up and Banjo had a wonderful time during her stay. We would definitely recommend services!
Great as always!
Everything was great!
awesome as usual. great asset to your franchise
our dog enjoyed his time at Ann and mike's. they were very nice! we will definitely bring him back there when we are out of town.
Lily loved staying with Mike and Ann. They treated her like one of their own! Will book with them again.
All went well.
Great sitter for our dog.
After meeting Mike and Ann, we knew they were the right couple to take care of JOY. Being retired allows them to be very flexible! JOY will be back!!
They are so sweet! I think my dog enjoyed hanging out there more than our house. There were other dogs to play with and he loved it. They are very accommodating and I knew that he was in good hands. I'll definitely use them again!!!
Sophie had a great time with ann and mike. we are looking to get back to see them for a visit very soon.
Mike and Ann took excellent care of Mitzi while we were gone. She seemed to feel right at home with them. We didn't worry about her at all, and highly recommend them to others.
Bandit had a great stay. He looks forward to his next Vacay!
Lucy really enjoyed staying with Mike and Ann. She got very attached to Ann and their dog Gerdy.
This was the first time our Lab, Buddy, had stayed with Mike, Ann and their pooch, Gertie. It was a great experience for all of us. Their home and yard were perfect for him; and we could tell he'd gotten a lot of attention and care. He came home happy and ready for his next adventure, as Labs usually are. We will definitely continue to take him to these super hosts.
Cinnamon had a great time at Mike and Ann's home. She seemed very happy but also very excited to go home. We plan on working with Mike and Ann again.
I just picked Beauregard up from the weekend at Mike & Ann's and he has been sleeping all afternoon - for a 3 year old golden that is a HUGE two paws up ; )

Layout of the home, the yard, and of course the two wonderful people who open that home to us pet parents who need a reliable home away from home were PERFECT and I know that Beau will not be as upset the next time I pull out a suitcase!

Thank you Mike and Ann, I truly appreciate your patience and love in caring for Beauregard. Cannot recommend you highly enough.

Perfect, as usual. Thanks Mike!
Mike & Ann were great grandparents to Harley while we were gone. When I took him for meet & greet, it was clear he was comfortable with them, as he made himself right at home.
Simon loves to stay at Mike and Ann's!! He especially loves to play in the big back yard. Mike and Ann are diligent giving his meds and loving him. They're the best!!
Mike & Ann are really nice and my dog Bella seemed to be well taken cared of while I was out of town. I liked their fenced yard and their dog Gertie who gets along well with guest dogs. Thanks Mike and Ann!
Highest praise for Mike and Ann. Lucy agrees.
Great communication. Meets you at the garage, builds/breakdown the crates, and asks how was your trip. I don't know what else you could ask for. A+++
Manolo had a great time! She stayed with their dog Gertie and several other Dog Vacay pups and had a ball. Mike & Ann made me feel really secure in knowing that Manolo was well taken care of. They took great notes before her vacay and even sent me a picture while I was away. Thanks again!
Mike and Ann were wonderful and gracious hosts. They have a beautiful outdoor fenced in area and a mild mannered resident dog named Gertie to keep your fur-pal company while you are away. We couldn't have asked for a better vacay situation with extremely nice people that put our minds at ease and allowed us to focus on moving our son into college out of town. They even sent a nice note and photo letting us know that everything was okay. Thanks so much Mike and Ann!
Happy we found Mike and Ann. They are good people with a great set up perfect for our lab JJ. I work from home, so having a pet sitter who is home during the day was important to us. Their dog Gertie made a good companion for JJ, and the fenced backyard gave JJ room to run. JJ came home happy, which made us happy too. We had peace of mind knowing JJ was in good hands. Highly recommend Mike and Ann. We will be repeat customers.
Great time, as always. I even got a photo to my phone, while I was away. They always meet me in the garage to make pick up very fast. Good people.
Really, really great hosts. Sadie, my female terrier, didn’t want to come home. Thanks Mike and Ann.
Great folks. Lucy hated to come home! Recommended.
Very accommodating, near the house, and affordable. Responsive to all text/calls/emails. Our oldest dog didn't want to leave their house!
Mike and Ann were amazing with our girls! I loved the layout of the house. Mia and Kona had access to the backyard which was great for them since they both like to explore. I also really appreciated that they are home. I work from home so that was something that was important to me. Mike and Ann are true dog people and Gerti is such a treat! Our girls had an amazing visit. We will be back soon!
Absolutely wonderful hosts! Ann and Mike and their fabulous 'Gertie' warmly welcomed my buddy, 'Chip', into their home. Sometimes Chip feels threatened by large dogs - but Ann and Mike have it worked out perfectly when letting visiting dogs out/into their spacious yard and home.
Apparently, Chip had such a wonderful time that - when I arrived to pick him up - I noticed through the doorway before ringing the bell that Mike ('Grandpa') was seated in his living room chair, reading the newspaper, while Chip laid with with his head resting on Mike's feet. It was like a scene out of a Rockwell painting!
Chip obviously loved being there - and that's what truly makes "Grandpa's Doghouse" such a fantastic place.
Mike and Ann are great hosts and took excellent care of my beloved pup while I was traveling. Their sweet dog Gertie got along great with Truman, and I'm sure both dogs enjoyed the big fenced yard and personal attention from Mike and Ann. Ann also made sure to send me any important updates, as well as pictures of Truman enjoying his vacation while I was away. Truman will definitely be staying with them in the future!
Our dog Cappy seemed to have been well cared for while we were away. Ann & Mike were very attentive to his needs.
Grandpa's Doghouse was super helping me out with Chester and Buddy! He visited my house at the requested time when I could not get home to give the dogs dinner and fresh water! Grandpa came in and fed the boys, checked the water and treated them to big bones when he left. He even turned on a light i the house, closed my shades and brought in the mail--WOW! So great to have Grandpa's Doghouse to help me when I am away from home! Thanks for your help Grandpa!
