About Michelle

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I are both teachers who enjoy being outdoors with our dog, Torrey. We both grew up with dogs, and include our dog in our active, outdoor lifestyle. On weekdays, we leave early in the morning but are home by 4. On the weekends, we are often out in the mountains with Torrey. We love hiking, camping, rock climbing and spending time outdoors.

We have a fenced in backyard, open space behind our house and are in walking distance to the Westminster Hills Off-Leash Dog Park. Torrey, our 3 year old Australian Sheppard mix, loves playing with other dogs and going on weekend adventures with us. If you have an active dog, we'd be a great match for you.

Our 2 dogs had a great time with Michelle and her crew. And I could really tell by how tired they were when I picked them up. I loved the photos she sent so I knew what they were doing.

I would most definitely request Michelle again if available should we sneak away again.

Thanks Michelle and crew.

Parker had so much fun! I loved that we got lots of pictures of her playing and we got regular updates from Michelle. She came home exhausted!
Michelle B. gave us great comfort in taking care of our dog. She sent us great updates of daily dog adventures. She really cares about dogs and is very professional. Truly outstanding in all ways. Top level recommendation!
She was very sweet and made sure Lucy was comfortable, as she gets some separation anxiety. She sent lots of pictures of the pups doing outdoor activities. Lucy came home one tired pooch!
Michelle took wonderful care of our pups! We received several pictures and updates daily, including of trips to the dog park!! It was clear that the dogs were well cared for, and totally exhausted when we returned. Would HIGHLY recommend Michelle, and we intend to use her service in the future!!!

Our pups loved their stay. They were extremely tired and really seemed to have enjoyed themselves. The morning and evening updates/pictures were wonderful to see. We cannot thank them enough. We will be reserving the next vacation soon!
Michelle was great. The dogs seemed to enjoy themselves and looked like they were having a ton of fun! Communication was great. I think Roxy had a great time staying at her house and we would definitely use her again.
We were needing a person to watch our dog while we are out of the country beginning of sept for a week and thought we would try a day visit beforehand since we had never left our dog with anyone. We didnt want to board our dog so we looked into dogvacay and found Michelle and her husband. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a loving home to leave your pooch while you are away. They have a dog that is just a bundle of joy and had another dog present when we dropped butch off for the day. I received updates and photos during the day. It just felt like such a relief to know he was loved by Michelle and her husband and we definitely plan on booking more daycare days during the summer leading up to our big trip. You will never have to worry with Michelle watching your pooch.

Buddy was one pooped, but happy, puppy when I picked him up. Thanks Michelle and family for taking good care of him!
I love it when she send me pictures and videos of Kendall it's a huge piece of mind. I know she is well treated and loved. You have my business for life.
Michelle did an excellent job taking care of our puppy golden retriever while we were out of town! She responded quickly to messages, we got constant updates with photos and videos, and they were extremely flexible with our delayed flights back home. Michelle took Liberty on an adventure every day, which she loved. She is a great sitter for anyone, but especially dogs who are very active! Liberty slept for two whole days after coming home. We will definitely use her again!

Michelle was great. She accepted our dog on late notice and took great care of him. They had a few other dogs their at the time all of medium to large size and he fit right in with the pack. They had a yard in the back for him and their neighborhood is right across the street from the Westminster Dog Park that they take the dogs to. I would definitely use them again.

Our 2 dogs had a great time with Michelle and her husband. They were very accommodating regarding pickup/drop-off timing. Michelle sent lots of photo updates while we were gone, including several on walks and trips to Westminster Hills, which is very close to them. We had a friend pick them up and that went smoothly as well. Thanks!

Luna had an awesome time and came home a happy worn out pup! Great environment! Thanks so much!
I highly recommend Michelle! We were nervous to leave our high energy puppy for the first time, but our experience could not have been better. Our dog was well looked after and enjoyed the hours of playing, hiking, and waking that Michelle and her husband provided. It felt like every few hours we had a photo update and our boy looked so happy. Michelle was quick to respond to any questions and the reservation/meet and greet process went smoothly. We feel lucky to have found such a great home for our dog while we're away.

As soon as I arrived at Michelle's house and met her I knew my pup would be in good hands -- as soon as my dog met the weekend's pack he knew it was gonna be a party. Fantastic yard and access to open spaces, appreciated the off-leash time and photos very much.

Michelle and Andy are wonderful dog hosts! Hodor had a great time and came home nice and tired from lots of play with their pup and running in the big open dog friendly spaces and parks by their home.

Have already booked them again for the next time I am out of town.

Michelle was the best! They took excellent care of my pup, were kind enough to send regular updates and photos, all of which showed my dog having a great time. I will absolutely ask Michelle to sit my pup again and highly recommend them.
Another successful Vacay! Thanks for taking such good care of Mae. We'll be back for sure!
Michelle and Andy are great dog sitters and Torrey is so adorable and a wonderful playmate; a perfect family for your dog to be with! You can easily see they have love for dogs. As they mention, great match if your dog is used to an active lifestyle, like mine. They were extremely accommodating, responsive and genuinely nice people! Highly recommend them!

We are thrilled that we found Michelle, Andy, and Torrey. They were great hosts for Mae's first time away from us! Michelle sent us so many great pictures of their adventures together. We were nervous our puppy would be too much work but our host's active lifestyle was just what Mae needed. She came home happy and totally wore out. Thanks a bunch. W e'll be back!

Michelle and Andy could not have done better. Michelle communicated promptly and well. They took great care of Jack who made several new friends, Michelle sent me numerous pictures to assuage any concerns and they were delightful to deal with.
