About Michelle

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Michelle!

I'm a 28-year-old food blogger/freelance writer and I'm originally from the Midwest. I grew up in an animal-loving house; fish, cats, and most importantly to me, my dogs! Since I relocated to Charlotte in 2014, I've missed the daily companionship that my Black Lab, Dakota, and German Shepherd/Huskie, Romeo, give to me - and I would love to fill that void by helping care for your dog when you need it! Both of my dogs are older now, but I played a very active role in training/caring for them from the second we brought them home. I love all dogs - big, small, whatever breed they may be.

My weekly schedule is typically very flexible because I work from home, so I am often around during the day to take them for walks/bathroom breaks/etc! I'm an active person who loves getting outside as much as possible, so I would make sure they'd get plenty of exercise throughout the day.

I live on the second floor of a three-story apartment building, and have about 1200-square-feet, so there is plenty of room for your dog to run around, or find a quiet place to lay down. I also have a good-sized porch that is safe, and closed in so they'd be able to spend some time out there as well. I live across the street from a large park, and there is plenty of green space around my complex as well.

I also offer dog sitting on a daily and/or nightly basis at my or the owners home, along with dog walking, hiking and trips to the park. I can pick your dog up, take them on a long hike or to the dog park, or just hang with them at your house, whether for the afternoon or overnight!

I also feel extremely comfortable helping your dog out in anyway they'd need - giving medication, bathing/grooming, vet trips - I've done it all, and would absolutely treat your dog as if they are my own so they feel safe and at home.

Michelle was AMAZING with my dog, Fletcher! She was very responsive and met up with me before I headed out of town to make sure I was comfortable with everything. She was extremely communicative and sent me pictures of him throughout the weekend. Fletcher got lots of walks and love which made being away from him so much easier. I will definitely use Michelle again!

Michelle was a fantastic host to our energetic Brittany Spaniel, Birdie!

I loved receiving daily pictures and video updates of our pup, and Michelle was always quick to respond to any communication.

Michelle was great to take Birdie on long walks and to the dog park. She even let Birdie cuddle on her couch, so she felt right at home.

Michelle's flexibility made it easy for us to drop off Birdie prior to our trip, and she was even so kind as to drop her off at our home when we returned.

We will absolutely be using Michelle again! Birdie is already looking forward to her next "dog vacay"!
