About Michael

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Greetings Minnesota doggies!

My name is Mike and I've been a dog lover for my entire life. That doesn't quite emphasize just how much I adore dogs though. Growing up with three dogs in Massachusetts (two Basset Hounds and a Beagle), I've never known a moment where my clothing wasn't covered in dog fur.

Upon graduation from college in New York City, I took it upon myself to provide personalized, private walking and sitting services for various demanding clients across Manhattan. For three years, I regularly walked the same 5 dogs, in addition to dozens of others over the course of my time in the city. Whether they be puppies, seniors, big or small, long haired or short, I loved them all equally with all my heart as if they were my own. Many of my dogs' "parents" are now personal friends.

Newly resettled to Minneapolis, I am looking to bring my years of experience, reliability, and love to your beloved pets here in the Cities. I am ready and willing to provide a variety of services, from simple walks and belly rubbing to transportation, and daycare or overnight stays at my home, or yours!
These services also include a personalized email detailing our adventure, or several emails over the course of an extended stay. Please feel free to reach out with any and all questions, and please check out my photos! I provide pet photography as well.

Last but not least, feel free to check out my article on dog walking featured on Business Insider.

We are new to Minneapolis and were nervous about leaving our dog Atlas with someone new we did not know. When we first met Michael, my fiance and I immediately felt our apprehension disappear. Michael and Atlas immediately hit it off! Atlas is a immediately felt our apprehension disappear. Michael and Atlas immediately hit it off! Atlas is a 70-lb dog with a lot of energy and Michael seemed unfazed! He sent us pics and texts to update us on how Atlas was doing, which was much appreciated! We felt so calm about leaving Atlas with Michael and look forward to using him for a long time to come! Nothing like returning home from a trip to a happy, calm pooch who is well taken care of while we are gone!

Mike did a great job with our dog, Chip! He sent us daily (hilarious) text updates while we were away, and even a few picture. We would definitely recommend Mike to dog parents in need of a sitter!
Mike did a great job for us during an overnight stay with our dogs at our house. The communication before, during, and after this booking was perfect and it seemed obvious to us that the dogs did great while he was around, even our shy and timid and it seemed obvious to us that the dogs did great while he was around, even our shy and timid Corky. Everything about this experience gives us confidence about our next booking with Mike and we are very comfortable giving him an outstanding recommendation to anyone reading this review.
