About Michelle

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have a 1700 square foot home and a fully fenced yard. I have 3 small dogs who love company. It is a nice neighborhood and close to Hammond trail which is great for dog walking.
I am a great host because I am a lifetime dog owner with 3 lovely pets who get to play and romp on the beach and walk on the beautiful trails here. I also foster puppies and kittens for the humane society and Humboldt Spay Neuter. I am an animal welfare researcher as well that is the focus of my research as a professor at Humboldt State University. I know how hard it is to leave our pets when we travel and I hope this is a great experience for me, my canine companions and for others who feel the same way.

Michelle was fantastic! I have never had to leave my dog overnight with someone other than family and she made me feel so comfortable! She was extremely accommodating when my flight was cancelled and she had to keep him an extra night! I couldn't imagine him going anywhere else now!
Michelle and her 3 dogs did a great job keeping my 5 month old puppy Penny entertained all week. Thanks Michelle!
Wouldn't leave my pup with anyone else! Michelle was great with Oliver and was always readily available to answer any of my questions. I can already tell that Oliver misses the company of his new friends!
Michelle was wonderful and I intend to contact her again should I need to go out of town and leave squeak behind. Her house and yard are very nice, as is she, and Michelle was available for phone call check ups. 5 out of 5 for sure. Her services were invaluable giving me the peace of mind that my doggy was in safe caring hands. Thank you Michelle. I will be calling again in the future.
Michelle was awesome! She agreed to watch our husky last minute while we attended a wedding. Kayda was happy when we picked her up and Michelle was informative about how well Kayda ate, behaved, etc. I know that our 2 year old husky can be a handful, and Michelle was nothing but kind and warm when we picked up our pup.
Michelle and her sister Kathy were both very friendly and helpful. Michelle was flex-able with the drop off and pick up time as we traveled a long distance. Daisy (fur baby) was happy to be with Michelle's dogs which were so very friendly. I will recommend Michelle as she is friendly and loves dogs. If we get back in that area I will leave Daisy with her for sure.
Suzie seemed to have a great time with Michelle and her little dogs. Came home ready to keep playing. We will definitely use her again when we are in the area. Very easy to work with and schedule drop off and pick up.
Michelle took wonderful care of our dog Flynn while we were away. Her sister was visiting and was also very kind to spend time playing with him. Michelle was very accommodating with feeding Flynn his raw diet and making him feel at home. We highly recommend Michelle!
Love that Oreo had playmates while I was away. Thanks so much for sending me his picture. Allowed me to relax and enjoy my time! Thank you
My dog had a blast and was very very happy to stay here
Michelle was a great host and will return for future visits, thanks.
Fuji, who is a very active little poodle mix absolutely loves going to see Michelle and her 3 adorable little dogs. I feel like Michelle honestly loves my little stinker and I know for sure Freckles, her little dog, is Fuji's best friend forever. I am confident when Fuji goes to Michelle's she will be safe, happy, and loved in my absence.
Fuji loved Michelle's dogs and fenced in backyard.I felt Michelle went beyond her obligation by letting Fuji sleep on the bed and taking her to the doggy park.I would highly recommend her as a doggy sitter.
I left Oliver for the first time with Michelle, and because she was so warm and friendly, I relaxed. When I picked him up, I could tell he had a good day. He obviously fit right in with her 3 dogs, and I look forward to leaving him with her again.
Michelle was simply amazing. Our 17 lbs baby was taken cared of just like as if he was one of Michelle's own pups. Walter immediately felt at home and Michelle was really nice in sending us pictures and updates from time to time. Rest assured that if you bring your pet to Michelle, you have come to the right place and you will enjoy your vacation with a comforting peace knowing that your dog is well taken cared off. This is our experience.
Awesome! Bebe was very happy to stay with you.
We could not have asked for a better dogsitter in Michelle. Our nervous pup was welcomed into her home with open arms and had a great weekend with her and her sweet dogs. It was a great experience for Lilac and for us, to not have even the slightest hesitation in the care she was receiving. We are looking forward to our dog spending more time with her new friends again soon!
Michelle id a warm and friendly lady. The place is clean and spacious. Luffy had a great time play with all his new friends(Michelle's dogs). He fell asleep right after sit on our car. Thank you Michelle!
Michelle was wonderful! She was flexible, easy to communicate with, and very sweet overall. Violet apparently enjoyed herself thoroughly, playing with Michelle's three dogs all weekend. In fact, Violet slept for nearly 24 hours after she got home from her doggie vacation. I would highly recommend Michelle's dogvacay services to anyone with a dog who loves to play.
