About Michele

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*Negative Review*
Since DogVacay does not allow me to reply to reviews, i'd like to at least post here about the silly negative review I recently received for people to hear my side. If you drop your coated Cocker Spaniel off in a knitted sweater, I will not have your dog dressed on pick up day if it is above 80 degrees outside. I also welcome you to bring your own dog crates if you think your dog is more comfortable in them, but I do offer my own as a courtesy so you do not have to haul your own crates back and forth. By offering my crates to you, I am not implying I refuse to accept yours. Please express that you are unhappy at pick up if anyone ever is with my services- do not act like everything is perfect and then write a review I cannot respond to without giving me the opportunity to explain myself after safely caring for your pet for over a week. I appreciate all of my continuous happy repeat dog owners and hope to welcome a few more new people that are open to communication instead of this sneaky nonsense : -)

If you are looking for a kennel free boarding facility for your family pet, this is the place! We accept limited amount of boarding clients at a time so each has plenty of one on one time. Pets are kept in the house in a family environment, not kenneled or outdoors. Dogs are crated overnight and during feedings, and have house access during the day. All crates and water/food dishes are sanitized between clients. We have 25+ years experience boarding, showing and training dogs of all sizes and temperaments.

If I could give her no stars I would. I should have walked out of the hosts house after walking in. She didn't allow us to bring Holly's crate in her home. Holly is a rescue and so her crate is her safe place. We brought her over dressed in her Christmas dress and Holly came home without her dress on, instead it was hastily crammed into Holly's bag. I got absolutely no updates from the host and had to beg for a picture. Even though Holly is the friendliest dog and a sweetheart, she looked absolutely the saddest I've ever seen. The dog vacay website states that this service is better than boarding, but I beg to differ. No updates were sent... this was absolutely the WORST experience for us and Holly.
Michele was wonderful! Very prompt with responding to messages and was very flexible. Maddy was a very happy puppy when I came home. Very thankful and appreciative for Michele. Will definitely be using her again.
Michelle is amazing! Quick response time and was great about letting me drop the puppies off early after I got off work. The puppies were happy and I was happy. Will definitely use her again!!
Thanks Michele! Henry came home safe and sound , and smelling like fresh laundry!
Michele took very good care of my dog for two weeks. I strongly suggest Michele. Very welcoming and friendly.
Minuet and and Gia only stayed a few days when we went to wedding in NOLA. She kept me updated, how they were doing.
Michele always takes good care of Minuet and Gia. They get so excited to see her.
We had a great experience with Michele. Our girls came back healthy and happy and Michele was flexible about timing etc.
Michele was great and very accommodating!
Michele was very accommodating and easy to get a hold of. My dogs came home smelling really nice!
She was kind and extremely flexible.
Michele was great! very nice and great with the dogs.
Michelle took great care of my boys! I would definitely trust her with my babies again.
Michelle was great. I was really worried because my Wheaten has separation anxiety and she will stop eating. We have never left them with anyway let alone for 9 days. Michelle kept in contact and they were great! We will definitely use her again. This was so much better than boarding with a facility.
Michelle was Great with my spoiled 2 Bichon girls. They like to go to her home and play with her babies.
Michele is very easy to work with and has taken good care of Herbie both times he has stayed with her.
Everything went perfect. Would definitely recommend Michele.
Michele was great! My dog came home happy and smelling awesome.
Michele did a great job taking care of our dog! She was also very quick in responding to any questions even before the actual vacay. It sounded like our dog had a great time with Michele and her dogs and they all got along very well!
Michele was wonderful taking care of Minuet and Gia, they seemed very happy and content.
I have always had problems with Gia eating, she ate tonight like it was her last meal.
I appreciate her keeping me posted about them while I was away.
I will be using her again.
Michele was absolutely wonderful to my Lexi! She sent me regular picture updates and was in contact the entire stay!!
Michele is very professional in what she does. Sent me a message indicating my pets were all fine twice. She had to take care of my two rambunctious lab mixes, both about two YO. She also did very well with my two tropical birds, a macaw, and a cockatoo. I will use her services again in the future.
Communications with Michele went very well before meeting her, and during my dog’s stay. Michele responded so quickly it surprised me. When I dropped off Holly, Michele and talked about what Holly liked, the food and treats I brought for Holly. Michele introduced Holly to one of her dogs and made sure they were compatible. I asked Michele if it was OK if I could pick up Holly an hour later than I had originally stated, and she was able to accommodate the change. Very happy with the way Holly was treated and my interactions with Michele. I mentioned to Michele that I would like to leave Holly with her in the future.
Jackson had a great time.
Michele was wonderful! Stevie was calm when I left her and smelled fantastic when I picked her up. As soon as we got there Stevie jumped on the couch and Michele didn't mind one bit. She is a huge dog lover and will make you feel comfortable and at ease about leaving your furbaby. Every time I sent a text she would update me on how she was doing and even sent me a pic when I asked for it. I highly recommend Michele as a pet sitter. Very pleased.
This was our first time using DogVacay, we could not have been more happy with the care that Kirby received! Michele is a true dog lover and great care giver. We will definitely request her again! Thanks DogVacay!! It was so convenient and easy!!
Toby seemed very happy when we picked him up. Looks like he was well cared for.
Michele is awesome! She was so friendly, very knowledgeable about dogs, sweet, and the perfect sitter! She was even kind enough to put up with my constant text messages while we were away! Our dogs returned to us happy, happy, happy! We will use Michele again!
Very nice, very clean home, even with all of her show dogs. :) She kept in good communication and answered all texts right away when we would check in on our dog. When we picked up the dog, she was relaxed and smelled so clean! It was good to see my dog, who had a big anxiety problem just a year ago, looking relaxed and comfortable somewhere where she had several little playmates and a little boy to love on her. :) Thanks Michele.
In a word, Michele P. is Awesome !!! She is the best fur baby sitter ever. My Sweetie was treated like family and looked sooo good when we picked her up.
So I say with pride and joy, if you are in need for a wonderful sitter please, consider Michele P., she will not disappoint you.
This is the 3rd time we left our dog with Michelle. Once again, she was a fantastic host!
Won't use this stay again
Michele is great. This is the 2nd time we used her to keep our dog and we will continue to be repeat customers!
Michele did a great job. Parker seemed comfortable and happy. We would definitely use Michele again.
Michelle was fantastic with our Rhodesian Ridgeback. She is a very dog friendly and was a great host to our dog. We recommend her 100% and we will use her again.
Michele is flexible and easy to schedule with. Winnie had a great time!
Michele was absolutely excellent taking care of our 7 month old German Shepherd Dog, Alpha. We communicated via text messages several times during our week vacation, and she gave me updates and kept me informed of all details. Felt completely comfortable leaving our puppy in her care. I would HIGHLY recommend Michele and intend to request her care for Alpha next time our entire family vacations together again. Thanks Michele !!!
I had a great trip knowing Winnie was in good hands. Thankfully Michele was flexible as our return date kept changing. Winnie was spiffy clean and smelling good when I picked her up.
It's a big decision when you have to leave your doggie children with someone for a long period of time. That was our worry and Michele P. was the answer to our prayers!

With two "older" dogs who are not used to being left, we chose Michele P. when we went for a long vacation because it was obvious she loves dogs and she was such a pleasure to work with when planning our dogs' stay.

I would recommend her in a second if you are looking for a great place for your dogs to stay while you are away. In fact, I hope to schedule Michele again in the very near future - my dogs came home happy and healthy.

Thanks Michele for taking care of Jack & Diane during our trip. It was so nice not to have to worry about them while we were gone.
Second time that Zorro has stayed with Michelle. He remembered her and was excited to see her. She has a lovely clean home. Very impressed!
Michele is amazing! She has very prompt communication and she's really experienced in taking care of dogs. Will absolutely find her again the next time we travel.
