About Michele

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Do you wish your furry friend had more socialization time or just someone to help expend their energy for you? Does your hectic life leave your furry relative alone for long periods of time leading to destructive habits? Why not solve these issues by allowing them time to get out with other dogs or have a companion come visit them during the day.

Hi, My name is Michele and I have raised dogs since I was 9 - over 30 years. I have always had a passion for animals and have instilled this into my children. Along with myself there are 4 other loving members of my family who would love to share their passion for animals with your furry friend.

I currently am a stay at home mom and recently retired military spouse. We would love to share our home, generous sized yard and beautiful local dog park with your furry friend. The prices I have listed may be negotiable as I am new and trying to test the waters out on this new adventure. Please do not hesitate to ask me question about rates, experience or anything else that would make you feel more comfortable in allowing us to care for your pet.

Huge fenced yard. Wonderful with dogs. Her advising me that he had trouble with potty breaks, helped me realize he was really ill.
Very happy with this family!
Michele was very helpful and was great at communicating while I was on vacation!
Great host and great place for Sable, glad I found Michele. I appreciate the convenience of placing Sable relatively close to home. That there were a number of other dogs present and a yard to play in meant a lot.
Michele and her family took great care of our dog. The fenced-in grass yard is a huge plus too. Thanks Michele!
Thanks Michele... I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing that Cookie was in safe hands. You were very accommodating on a short notice and I appreciate you picking up and dropping off my dog to accommodate my tight schedule. Thanks again.
Sarah was SO happy to be there with Michele! Michele sent pictures, and updates, which is so helpful..our first time leaving our 'baby'! We will call on her again in the future! Very thankful for the opportunity to know that there is an avenue of love for our fur-daughter.
Michelle and family took good care of Phineas. We've moved out of the area. Otherwise, I would book with Michelle again.
Great experience. We will be using Michelle again.
After meeting with the family I felt very comfortable leaving my pup with them. She was happy & immediately made herself at home. They responded quickly when I asked for updates & posted pictures. Nice people.
will not use again
It was nice to see them interacting with the dogs, and seeing the dogs playing together. I would definitely use them again!
My 2 pugs had a great vacation at Michelle's house. They received plenty of attention from Michelle and her family. She was willing to deal with their litter boxes ( they're litter box trained). She sent me photos and I believe my pups were throughly spoiled as they should be. I would use here services again.
The doggies were well taken care of! I think they may have come back better behaved than when they left. She left me pick them up late even though my flight was delayed.
This being our first experience with leaving our dog with anyone, i wasnt sure how things were supposed to go? Buster seemed very content and comfortable where he was. Thank you Michele for making him feel at home. I felt safe and content knowing he was in your care. We will definitely see you again if the need arises.
Phineas came home healthy, happy, and clean. Michelle and family took good care of him and even gave him a bath. I would book with Michelle again!
Very caring environment for my two big dogs.
This sitting was easy to book, especially at the last minute. When we picked up our dog, she was clean, well cared for and happy to see us. Not stressed, as has been the case at kennels.
We would rate our dog, Sadie's, (Gold Retriever) stay with Michele and her family as "5", plus, plus! The care given to our dog was exceptional. We kept in touch with Michele while on our 4 week vacation many times and she always put our mind at ease. Michele was most accommodating when making plans to meet her at her home and we were very impressed by her loving and calm manner toward us and Sadie. We would highly recommend Michele to everyone and we will definitely use her again. P.S. What a nice surprise when we picked Sadie up to find her freshly shampooed! Many heart filled thanks to Michele and her family.
Bob and Sandy Lause and Sadie, too!
I wanted to find a happy family with a big fenced in yard that wasn't in the city for my little Taquito (chihuahua mix). I had never boarded him before. I was worried he might feel abandoned or depressed.
That never happened! He had a blast the whole time (19 Days).

Michele did an excellent job taking care of my little guy. The next time we go away, Taquito will be so happy to see his surrogate family. Renee Patterson
Michele is a very nice sitter with a big fenced in yard and she took our dog to the dog park, so it was even better!
