About Michelle

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Michelle living in Sherman Oaks. I am recently retired and a dog lover.

I always have dogs in my life and recently I have 2, Pumpkin - Toy Poodle. She is my senior sweetheart baby - 16 1/2 years old and JJ - Mixed breed. He got lost in our neighborhood and I adopted him after we could not find his owner. I took him the vet and had him fixed and put a microchip on him. He is such a precious sweet boy and about 6 1/2 years old. Both of them are very submissive and friendly. They are joys of my life since I am childless.

I live in a nice area of Sherman Oaks and walk my dogs twice a day by the LA river bike path recently renovated and opened in front of my house or walk them couple blocks down from my house. We live in a friendly dog lover neighborhood so we meet and let them play together. My dogs sleep on my bed or on their own beds, wherever they like and whenever they want (they have 4 dog beds!!). I have a big yard they can roam around if we can't take a walk due to a bad weather. My dogs have freedom in the house....I have 2-bedrooms and a big sunroom...

Dogs know who loves them and they know I do !! I am petite but have a big heart for dogs so I would like to take care a small breed !! :o)

Have a wonderful day.

***Overnight Stay is 24 hour period after the drop off. A Day Care Charge will be applied after***

Michelle is a stay at home fur-mom to her two pups, Pumpkin and JJ. Both pups are mellow and friendly. Michelle's home is located in a nice cul-de-sac residential area and right across the street is the entrance to the pedestrian path of the LA River.

Michelle is a true dog lover and you will find that your pup will have a loving and fun time at her home. She is very attentive to you and your pups needs. There is plenty of space for roaming in the home and the backyard yard is large and secure.

On my next vacay, I will book a spot for my Charlie at Happy Tails' Dog Boarding!
Michelle is AMAZING! I don't normally leave my 2 dogs ( a male Bichon Frise and a female Lhasa Apso) with anyone but my parents. We had to go out of state to my son's college graduation for three days and my parents were coming with us so we found ourselves in an unusual predicament. Michelle was an amazing life saver! She was wonderful on the meet and greet. She took time to get to know us, our dogs, and ask questions about our dogs likes and dislikes. During the three days we were gone we received regular email updates with detailed information on how and what they were doing complete with adorable pictures several times a day! She took care of our dogs and loved them like they were her own! They were so happy at her house! My dogs also loved being with Michelle's dogs JJ and Pumpkin! JJ and Pumpkin were very mellow with my dogs and the four of them got along well. I am so happy to have found Michelle. It is so nice to know that we have found someone who is reliable, loving, and trustworthy to love our dogs when we are away.
Michelle was very thorough with my little girl. We scheduled a meet and greet so we could see how Dolce would respond to Michelle, her home, and her dogs. Everything went wonderfully and Dolce spent 36 wonderful hours with Michelle, lounging everywhere and truly making herself at home. We can't wait to visit with Michelle again!
Michelle was a wonderful dog sitter for my 2 dogs for 1 week. She treated my dogs as if they were her own, walking them 2x daily, giving them treats, and lots of love & attention. Michelle has great attention to detail with the specifics on my 2 dogs, sent a lot of photos to me during my trip, and was a pleasure to do business with. I would definitely use her again!
