About Michael

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs are our passion. Tall, small, fluffy, or droopy-we will be your dog's new best friends!

Always ask us about our availability*. We offer daycare, overnight boarding, and drop-in visits. We live 15 minutes (5 miles) away from the airport in a safe neighborhood in Maryland Heights.

We have 2 dogs: a lazy 10yo Basset Hound named Bernie, and a 4yo Lab mix named Zuli. They both love to socialize and play with other dogs in our spacious 4000sq. ft. fenced back yard, as well as go for walks.

We strive to be flexible on pickup and drop off times. We do prefer getting to know new dogs with a survey and meet and greet beforehand, so that all dogs who stay together will have a safe and happy experience. If your dates are during the summer or around a holiday, please let us know as early as you can, as space fills fast.

We prefer to be able to get to know the new guest with our survey and meeting procedure before the stay is committed, as that's the best way to check compatibility.

For puppies under 1 year of age during peak times of year (Spring Break, Summer, and major holidays), please ask for a quote. For multiple dogs from the same owner, we do usually work out a custom rate for repeat customers.

Can't wait to meet your dog! Aroooo!

-Mike and Beth

*For example, a dog may leave at 8am, but the calendar on DogVacay will consider the slot as booked for the entire day, when we do indeed have room. There are occasionally days of overlap, which shouldn't have to prevent an owner from booking a longer stay that need the same dates. In this case, we can send a custom quote to you to ensure all your requested dates can be booked.

Michael was a great sitter for Dottie. He is reliable and a caring pet parent. There was never any concern when Michael had Dottie. Wish he were in Arizona.

Michael did a great job with our little nervous Norton. Norton is typically a nervous dog and he warmed to Michael at our meet and greet and then did great staying for a week while we went on vacation. It was comforting to know we had our fur baby great staying for a week while we went on vacation. It was comforting to know we had our fur baby in a good home while we were away.

Mike was very thorough and detail-oriented. He thought of everything to ask/know about our dog to ensure his utmost safety and comfort. He also sent us pictures and videos while we were away which helped being away from our very loved pup. Thanks us pictures and videos while we were away which helped being away from our very loved pup. Thanks Mike!

Michael took great care of our dog Bullet while we were out of town. We received daily video updates and could tell that our dog felt right at home at Michael's, which is a hassle sometimes as he typically has a lot of anxiety when we are away.
