About Michael & Kelsi

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a small family with a lot of love. Let your dog be part of our family for a while. We have a 3 bedroom house 1,345 sq ft with a huge yard! Our lot size is 9,013 sq ft. So there is plenty of room for all of the dogs to run around and have a good time!

We go for daily walks, have lots of area for you to run around & lots of interaction time. The dogs get along great with everyone and love to play! They love to chase the ball and run in and out of the dog door! They always look forward to having friends over to entertain. We treat each of your guests like they are one of the family!

My dog had so much fun she's been wore out for TWO DAYS! She very obviously had such a good time with Michael and Kelsi. My dog is very timid and cautious, especially around other dogs; but Michael and Kelsi made her feel extremely comfortable around their home. I highly recommend them.

Thank you Michael and Kelsi!
Drop off and pick up was super easy! Our pup came back exhausted, happy, and well cared for. Thanks
Before we made our meet n greet reservation & 1 night test reservation, we double checked to make sure the dates for our week of actual vaca was available through them. They reassured us it was. We did a meet n greet; they did not have their dogs at the meet n greet, which was disappointing, but we booked the 1 night test run anyway. After the 1 night, Michael told us "they are very sweet girls, we look forward to watching them again soon" I again said we would book for our dates, which were just 9 days out. I asked if our food bowls had been left there & was told yes. I said, it is not a problem, since we were going to book there in 8 days (at this point). On pay day, 3 days later, I went to book & found they were not available, I messaged them & they said they would check into it. They did not get back to me. I finally reached them to make arrangements to pick up our bowls the following Tuesday. They asked us to message them when we were on our way at the agreed upon time. I did, they did not reply. I got to their house to find nobody home & our bowls (weighted, expensive bowls) lying on the sidewalk. I feel this couple was extremely dishonest & it makes me wonder what happened while our dogs were there in their care. Did they bother to even use the extra care required for pugs in the extreme heat? (I sent Kool collars with them), were our pugs taken care of or locked outside all day? Our girls came home & were a bit out of it for a day, hmmmmm.
Michael takes great care of my (2) dogs! Would highly recommend.
Michael and Kelsi were great! I highly recommend them to anyone with dogs that like kids. The kids were super sweet with our dog and I could tell he got lots of love while we were away.
they were great! they sent me texts and pics several times / day. They are very experienced. First, they got my dog acclimated to their house, then introduced the other dogs to my dog to socialize them. The entire experience was great. Thanks, Michael and Kelsi.
Michael & Kelsi were phenomenal! I needed a last minute sitter and after submitting requests to 3 other people, Michael & Kelsi responded very quickly and put my worries at ease.

They were very friendly and open to my very last minute request, and everything got sorted out so that my vacation continued on without a hitch.

When I was finally able to pick her up, she seemed happy and well taken care of. The entire experience was great and I would gladly recommend them to other Pup Owners.
SUPER. Could not ask for more.
I definitely recommend Michael & Kelsi! My dog, always has a wonderful time and is well cared for!
My dogs had a great time here! Definitely recommend.
Dogs loved it! They were so easy to work with. Thanks guys!!!
Very flexible with pick up and drop off times, loved that Dakota had free range in the house.
We absolutely love Michael and Kelsi. We have used them 3 times and our pup is always excited when we drop him off and is always happy when we pick him up. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for everything guys!!!!
Otto came home healthy and happy. What a relief to know he was being loved with a family while we were away. Thank you Michael & Kelsi!!!
Nice people and they took Luke in on short notice over the Thanksgiving weekend. It was also nice to receive picture updates while we were away. I would not hesitate to use them again.
Simba absolutely loves staying with Micheal and Kelsi! I have a hard time getting him to leave when I pick him up. Thank you for loving my dog. Cyndi
Mike took great care of my Pitbull mix lady. I saw that she was happy from the first moment when I left her at his home and when I came to pick her up she almost didn't want to come with me.

Thank you Mike !
This is the second time I have used their services and I am just as happy as the first time. They even bathed him!! I would recommend them highly and I will use them again!
Pico had a great time. He's still pretty tired
Reggie was tired after his visit, so it seemed like he played hard and had a good time. Thanks for watching him while I was away!
First we had a meet and greet, as we have never been separated from our dog "Q" and he is a handful. We were impressed when we met Michael and saw how he was with Q and the dogs that were there. They have a big yard, so that was good too. We left Q with them for 4 nights and he sent us a couple of pics. When we picked up Q, he had everything ready and had even given Q a bath. He took very good care of my Baby Q and we will leave our dog with them again.
Was able to make a short notice reservation with very flexible drop off and pick up times. Dogs seemed to have a great time and we look forward to our dogs staying with them again.
Things went well. Dogs were very happy and played out for 2 days. Met Mike but not Kelsi. Mike was kind enough to have their crates/beds/toys by the door made it easy to load back up. This was appreciated. Would recommend them for your pets.
Having a last minute cancellation for my dog before I left town, I submitted a request to her literally 2 hours before I had to leave out of town. I was thinking at the time, 'Who will take a last minute request like this'. Sure enough within minutes of the request, I got a confirmation from her. Drove my puppy down there and was able to feel relaxed knowing my dog was not only not alone but taken care of while I was gone.
Barney had a fantastic time with Kelsi and Mike. They were very accommodating with my schedule and I can tell Barney would love to see them again! Thanks guys for taking such great care of him while I was away!
Barney had a blast staying here with Kelsi and Mike. They took great care of him, kept me updated with photos and made sure that he enjoyed his vacation more than I enjoyed mine! :-p
This was our first time using Kelsi and Mike, they were truly awesome!!! We met them a few days before and they were very good at introducing the dogs that they had to our dogs 1 by 1.

They sent us pictures through out our stay and I truly couldn't of asked for someone better to watch our pups.

We will be using them EVERYTIME now.

We usually take Sedona with us on trips, so her visit with Kelsi and Michael would be the first time we would be leaving her overnight with anyone else. She was immediately comfortable in their house, but was not too happy when we walked out the door without her.

Kelsi sent us a text the next day saying that she had pouted for a bit, but with lots of loving and play with the other dogs and people in the house she had adjusted well. We also got a photo update showing her making herself at home on the sofa.

While she was happy to see us when we picked her up after a weekend away, she seemed so comfortable with Michael and the others, I wasn't sure she wanted to come home with us!

I would definately recommend Kelsi and Michael.
Jace and Coco seemed to have a great time this weekend. Being a puppy, Jace is always hyper. Playing with the other dogs wrote her out. It was nice to come home and have her calm while we were trying to recuperate from our trip. She cuddles up next to us and napped. I will definitely take the girls back when we go on another trip.
Had a great experience boarding my two dogs with Kelsi and Mike. I needed a last minute reservation and they were very accommodating, prompt with responses, and upfront with all details. My dogs seemed right at home the minute they arrived and Kelsi and Mike took their time to show me around and they were very experienced in making my dogs comfortable with the environment and also with their dogs. They have a spacious home and a huge yard for the dogs to roam. I was updated nightly with pics and texts about how my dogs were doing and they were great to deal with up to the moment of picking up my dogs. Wondering experience with great people. Would definitely recommend and would use them again without hesitation.
Great price, and more importantly, friendly dog people! They took great care of our pup. Also, they were flexible and cooperative and offered 24/7 service, which our old mutt needs. And, they had other doggy friends there for our dog to meet. It was like a dog party, and dogs like that!
Sora seemed to have had a great time, she seemed very comfortable when we came to pick her up. Will definitely use them again. Thanks for watching her over the holiday!
This is the second time we have used this wonderful family to watch our dog. They are amazing! They have a huge yard for the dogs to play in,and they sent pictures of her half way through our trip! She had a blast. I would highly recommend them to anyone that needs a safe comfortable place for their dog(s) to stay!
I would surely leave my dogs with Kelsi and Mike again! They love the dogs, they sent me pictures and text updates on how my doggies were doing.
