About Michelle

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you’re like me, your pets are family members. When you can’t be home for them, whether it’s for work, vacation or other obligations, you want your best friends taken care of with the same love and attention you give them. I believe that most dog owners prefer loving homes (theirs or ours) to kennels for their furkids when seeking dog sitting or walking services. I will give you the peace of mind you seek by providing your furkids with quality, loving care while you're away.*

I am an experienced, life-long dog owner and dog lover. Whether your dog is shy or bold, young or senior, large or small, I will provide loving care for your best friend in your home or mine*. My home has a large, fenced backyard so your dog will have plenty of room to run and play. Your dogs will get plenty of outside potty breaks, and even dog walking if requested. Plus, your dog will be with me throughout the day and night as I work primarily from home.

My professional background includes small business development and consulting, specializing in human resources and recruiting. I also consider myself a dog hobbyist in that I have fostered dozens of dogs on their way to a better life. Although I'm not a certified trainer, I know a great deal about training and canine behavior. I use only positive reinforcement and rewards and can continue any (positive) training program you have underway.

I have three dogs of my own - all rescues - all are lab mixes. They are very social and good with other dogs.

My rates are as follows: Your home: $50/night for up to two dogs. Additional dogs (or cats) are $20/night. My home: $35/night (first dog). Additional dogs are $20/night. Puppy rate (dogs under 1 year) $50/night. Overnight stays typically begin at approximately 4pm and end the next day at 4pm. Adjustments to this schedule and/or partial day billing is available to accommodate your travel schedule. Holiday weekends require a two-night minimum.

*Dogs cared for in my home must spayed or neutered, current on vaccines, potty trained (unless a puppy) and be appropriately socialized. If not, please consider care in your home in your dog's familiar environment. For traveling sitter services, your home MUST be a non-smoking environment*

Thank you for taking care such good care of our sweet Laney! We appreciated the updates and photos even though we were only away a couple of days. I think she misses her new playmates! Thanks so much!
